    Taweez (Amulets) in light of the Quran and Sunnah (OP)





    The Prophet said the follow regarding the taweez:

    It was narrated that ‘Uqbah ibn ‘Aamir said: I heard the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) say: “Whoever wears an amulet, may Allaah not fulfil his need, and whoever wears a sea-shell, may Allaah not give him peace.”

    (Narrated by Ahmad, 16951)


    It was narrated from ‘Uqbah ibn ‘Aamir al-Juhani that a group came to the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) [to swear their allegiance (bay’ah) to him]. He accepted the bay’ah of nine of them but not of one of them. They said, “O Messenger of Allaah, you accepted the bay’ah of nine but not of this one.” He said, “He is wearing an amulet.” The man put his hand (in his shirt) and took it off, then he (the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him)) accepted his bay’ah. He said, ‘Whoever wears an amulet has committed shirk.

    (Narrated by Ahmad, 16969)


    They are haram in Islam. Details are available here: https://islamqa.info/en/10543

    ------------------

    With that said, there are some scholars who have said that some taweez are halal and some are haram.

    Among them is Imam Ibn Taymiyya.

    In his fatwa, he said :

    Hanging or wearing of amulets (ta’wiz) is normally permissible for protection or healing provided certain conditions are met:

    1) That they consist of the names of Allah Almighty or his attributes;

    2) That they are in Arabic;

    3) That they do not consist of anything that is disbelief (kufr);

    4) The user does not believe the words have any affect in themselves, but are empowered to do so by Allah Most High.
    It is narrated from Amr ibn Shu’ayb, from his father, from his grandfather (Abdullah ibn Amr ibn al-Aas (Allah be pleased with them all), that the Messenger of Allah (Allah bless him & give him peace) used to teach them (the Sahabas) for fearful situations the following words:

    “I seek refuge in Allah’s perfect words from His wrath, the evil of his servants, the whispered insinuations of devils, and that they come to me”

    More can be read here: https://ahlussunnahwaljamah.blogspot...-in-islam.html

    However, I'm willing to bet that 99% of the taweez do not meet those conditions. They have some sort of shirk involved. Look up taweez videos online and shaikhs opening up these taweezs given by so called maulanas exposing the haram in them.

    ---------------------------------------

    So where does that leave us ?

    Shayhk Ibn Baaz sheds proper light on the matter:


    Q 3: What is the ruling on amulets consisting of words of the Qur'an or other things?

    A:Amulets made of elements other than the words of the Qur’an, such as bones, talismans, cowrie shells, wolf hair and the like are all evil and Haram (prohibited) by the Nas (Islamic text from the Qur’an or the Sunnah). It is not permissible to hang them on anybody or anything, because the Prophet (peace be upon him) said: Anyone who wears an amulet, may Allah not fulfill it (i.e., their purpose) for them, and anyone who wears a cowrie shell, may Allah not give them peace. According to another narration, he (peace be upon him) said: Anyone who wears an amulet has committed Shirk (associated others with Allah in His Divinity or worship).


    On the other hand, if the amulets consist of words of the Qur’an or well-known good supplications, this is a controversial matter among the scholars. Some of them said that such amulets are permissible. This opinion was reported from a group of the Salaf (righteous predecessors) who likened it to reciting Qur’an and saying supplications over the sick seeking healing.


    Other scholars said that it is not permissible. This is the opinion known to be held by `Abdullah ibn Mas`ud andHudhayfah (may Allah be pleased with them), as well as a group of the Salaf and the Kalaf (righteous successors). They said that it is not permissible to tie amulets even if they are words of the Qur’an in compliance with the principle of Sadd-ul-Dhara’i` (blocking the means leading to sins) and to forestall acts of Shirk and act upon the general meaning of the Hadiths. The Hadiths that prohibit amulets are general and make no exception. Muslims should abide by the general ruling. Therefore, it is basically not permissible to use any kind of amulets so that people do not use other types of amulets, thus leading to confusing matters.

    (Part No. 1; Page No. 52)

    It is obligatory to prohibit all types of amulets. This is the soundest opinion for the obvious evidence supporting it.

    If we permit the use of amulets made from the Qur’an and good supplications, it will open the door for people to wear any form of amulets they like. Then, if they are reproved for what they do, they will say that they are amulets consisting of the Qur’an or good supplications. Consequently, the door will be opened, the cut will widen, and all types of amulets (whether words of the Qur’an or otherwise) will be worn.


    There is another reason for their prohibition, which is the fact that people may enter the bathroom and other unclean places while wearing them. It is well known that the Words of Allah are too sacred to be in such places, and it is inappropriate to take them into the bathroom.

    As soon as she answers my questions Ill provide the reference. Like I said, if you give me an Arabic quote out of a book from 1000 years back without naming it, Ill find it for you.

    Rabaani's issue with Istighaatha needs a simple Google search for those who do not know it. He has been in deep waters regarding it in the sight of those who abhor the concept.

    But what is disturbing is that if someone is unaware of a stance of a person in matters of Aqiidah and Fiqh they are willing to follow him?

    As one scholar said, the requirement of seeking knowledge from someone else is to know what their stance in matters of aqidah and fiqh. Sadly, majority don't know that and don't follow that ,which is why we have so many people today following modern celebrity sheikhs and even defend them adamantly while being ignorant of their beliefs. And we see the same thing on this forum as well in regards to sufi scholars and their teachings being spread, corrupting the aqeedah of others.

    Re: Taweez (Amulets) in light of the Quran and Sunnah

    Assalaamu alaikum Zeeshan,


    (mildly) What I was trying to say- gently- was that when we start speaking about others behind their backs, we may slide into either backbiting or slander. (gently) I apologize if I was not clear enough, but I did not want to embarrass you.

    I am aware that there are people with different positions on many questions. (mildly) I prefer to look first at the character of a person, when thinking about their positions. Then I look at their training. And also their intentions.

    I honour Faraz Rabbani, because he has devoted a considerable amount of his (and his family's) time and resources to trying to set up something that we very much need here in Canada- a place to find Islamic knowledge. An online institution, based in Canada. He has travelled overseas gaining knowledge, and he has brought it back here. To help all those who have little or no access to knowledge. To be able to respond to local needs in a culturally appropriate way. (mildly) This is a very worthy thing.

    (mildly) You may disagree with his interpretations. And I invite you to offer the interpretations that you agree with. (smile) Perhaps we may all learn something? But we need to always remember that as Muslims we need to be mindful of what we say, and how we say it, when speaking of others...


    May God, the Bestower of Peace, Help us to see the good in one another.

    Just a reminder. When you warn someone against someone behind their back for deviance it is not considered backbiting. There is a complete list of places and situations where ones actions would not be considered backbiting. Warning against an individual misleading people on a given issue is one of those exceptions.

    Rather than I reinvent the wheel you can read about it here with references from the Qur'aan and Sunnah.

    And you can read about istighaatha being utterly wrong here.
    Asking for madad from anyone other than Allaah, as mentioned in the question, is a kind of calling upon (or making du’aa’ to) someone other than Allaah, hence it is a kind of shirk.
