Q 6: There is a person among us who admirably speaks about things and describes them without mentioning the Name of Allah. He often expresses his admiration about things saying, for example, "Wow, how nice this is; it fits perfectly in its place!" and while he is saying that, the thing he is talking about gets broken or damaged. We therefore think this is the influence of his evil eye. We would like to know
the means of protection from the evil eye
according to the Sunnah of the Prophet, may Allah reward you with the best.
According to Sunnah, anyone who sees anything he admires, be it a person, vehicle, home or anything else, should say "Ma sha'a Allah la quwwata illa bi-Allah (Whatever Allah wills [will come to pass], there is no power except with Allah);" for Allah, the Exalted, said,
"It was better for you to say, when you entered your garden: ‘That which Allâh wills (will come to pass)! There is no power but with Allâh!’ If you see me less than you in wealth, and children
Protection from the evil eye can be achieved by the remembrance of Allah through reciting Ayat-ul-Kursy (the Qur’anic Verse of Allah’s Chair, Surah Al-Baqarah, 2:255) after observing Salah (Prayer) and when going to sleep. Reciting Surah Al-Ikhlas and Al-Mu`awwidhatayn (Surahs Al-Falaq and Al-Nas) three times every morning and every evening and when going to sleep is also recommended. You should also put your trust in Allah, depend on Him and believe that all good and evil are controlled by Allah, Glorified and Exalted be He. Whatever He wills is destined to happen and whatever He does not will is not destined to happen. Thus Allah protects His Servants from the evil eye and whatever may harm them.
