Offering Salah while wearing amulets

Q 8: Is it permissible to offer Salah (Prayer) while wearing amulets or not?


A: Scholars have unanimously agreed on the prohibition of wearing amulets if they contain anything other than Qur’an, but there is disagreement about when Ayahs of the Qur’an are inscribed on them. Some have permitted wearing them, while others prohibit it. However, prohibition is the more preponderant scholarly opinion, as the general meaning of Hadiths support this and it also serves to block the means that may lead to sins. (Part No. 1; Page No. 325) Accordingly, it is impermissible and even more a priority not to wear them during Salah.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
