Is wearing Taweez (Amulet) (Shirk) permissible in Islam with videoI

Is wearing Taweez permitted in Islam? Is it Shirk to wera Taweez in Islam? Why is Taweez worn in Islam? Is there any relevance to wearing Taweez in islam? What is the status of Black Magic in Islam? And you may have may such questions on Taweez (Amulet)

We bring you detail information on Taweez from Quran and Hadiths. We also bring you videos in for of Audio to explain better by Mufti Shahid Barkati

Video: Kya Taweez Pehana Shirk hain (Quran aur Hadees ki Roshni mein) 


What is Taweez?

The definition of a Ta’weez is simply ‘a written Du'a,’ which is from the Qur’an or Ahadith, and is for the one who cannot read or has not memorized that particular Du'a. It is written on a piece of paper and is worn around the neck.

We, the Ahle Sunnah believe, to wear a Taweez around the neck is permissible if the du’a contained in it is written from the Qur’an or Ahadith. Prophet Muhammad [May Allah bless him and grant him peace] used to recite du’a and then blew onto the sick person. The companions of the Prophet [May Allah bless him and grant Him peace] also did this and the companions wrote the du’a on a piece of paper and placed it around the neck of that person if they could not read it. Of course, the du’as from the Qur’an and Ahadith have the power to heal the sick. Some people say, if you wear the Taweez you are commiting shirk, but we will prove, with the help of Allah Almighty, that it is permissible to wear a Taweez.

Proof of Taweez from Quran

The Qur’an has the power of healing

Allah Almighty says in the Qur’an,

“…We send down in Qur’an that which is a healing and a mercy to the believers…”

(Surah Bani Israeel Verse 82).

Qadi Shawkani writes, if the Qur’an’s du’as are recited and blown on the sick, they will be cured. When the non-believers recite the Qur’an, their blasphemic disease will be cured. (Tafsir Fathul Qadir under Verse 82 Surah Bani Israeel).

Proof of wearing the Taweez

1) Hafidhh ibn Kathir and Qadi Shawkani writes:

Amr Ibn Shu’aib RadhiAllahu ‘anhu says, that ‘RasoolAllah (Sallallahu’ alaihi wa sallam) taught my Father and grandFather a Du'a which we would read before going to sleep, to protect us from fear and anguish. We told our elder children to recite this Du'a before going to sleep as well. But for those children who were not yet literate, we would write it and then put it around their necks.

[Musnad Ahmad Ibn Hanbal vol.2, Abu Dawud in Chapter of Medicine, Tafsir by Hafidhh Ibn Kathir of verse 97 of Surah Al-Mu’minoon and Qadi Shawkaani in Fath-ul-Qadeer under the same verse]

It is permissible to read du’a and blow upon the sick

2) Imam Bukhari and Imam Muslim writes:

When a person who was sick or in some distress they would go to the Prophet [May Allah bless him and grant Him peace] who would then place his hand on the area of the pain and recite a du’a and then blow onto him.
(Bukhari, Muslim chap on Tibb).

3) Imam Muslim writes: 

When the Prophet [May Allah bless him and grant Him peace] was ill for the last time, angel Jibreel [May Allah bless him and grant Him peace] came and recited du’a and blew on to the Prophet [May Allah bless him and grant Him peace]. (Muslim chapter on Tibb)

4) Imam Muslim writes:

Aisha (Radiall hu anhua) said when the Prophet [May Allah bless him and grant Him peace] was ill the last time, she recited Surah Al-Falaq and Surah Al-Naas and then blew on to the Prophet [May Allah bless him and grant Him peace]’s hands. The Prophet then blew this onto his own face and body because his hands had more blessing then Aisha’s (Radiall hu anha).

(Muslim chap on Tibb)

From the above narrations, it proves that to blow after reciting du’as onto the sick is Sunnah and the more pious the person is, the more healing power he has because he is blessed more than the less pious. 

5) Hafidhh ibn Taymiyyah writes:

It is permissible to [to recite du’as, and then] blow upon the sick in Islam, but the words must be from the Qur’an or Ahadith. If the words are not then it is not permissible.
[Al-Tawasul chapter on Blowing onto the Sick by Hafidh ibn Taymiyyah]

FAQS of wearing Taweez

Q) Some people say, “How is it allowed to blow dua’s onto the sick, when some Hadith say this is forbidden?” 

Allama Sa’idi has written the answer to this question in great detail he’s also put the opinion of all the other great scholars, and we will present this here.

Allama Gulam Rasool Sa’idi writes:

Imam Nawawi Rahmatullah in Sharh Muslim states: ‘there are two types of Ahadith concerning blowing. (Reciting a Du'a and then blowing onto a person.) One of the types is transmitted in Bukhari: ‘There will be people who will enter Paradise without any questioning, who have never been blown upon’. Imam Muslim Rahmatullah has also written a hadith in support of those who do not ask to be blown upon. Imam Bukhari Rahmatullah in the chapter on Tibb (Medicine) has written Du'as, which our Prophet [May Allah bless Him and grant Him peace] recited when doing ‘Damm’ (Reciting a Du'a and then blowing onto a person). Imam Muslim Rahmatullah states in the Chapter on Virtues of the Prophet [May Allah bless Him and grant Him peace] that: when our Prophet [May Allah bless Him and grant Him peace] was ill, the Angel Jibreel came to him and performed the blowing. The above types of Ahadith apparently seem to contradict each other but in reality there is no contradiction.

The former type of Hadith refers to the prohobition of having read something that is not from the Qur’an and Sunnah [ie, something that has pictures, diagrams and words not from the Qur’an] and then blow upon someone. The latter types of Ahadith which permit Damm refer to those Kalimaat (words or verses) which have been taught by the Prophet [May Allah bless Him and grant Him peace]. In the same way as above there are two types of Ahadith concerning Ta’weez. There are many narrations that forbid the use of Ta’weez and also many permitting their use. Imam Qurtubi Rahmatullah wrote in detail about both types of Ahadith concerning Ta'weez: ‘The Ta’weez that are forbidden are those Ta’weez from the time of ignorance, those which are Satanic and contain an element of Shirk'. (Mantar, Voodoo and Magic etc.) The Ta’weez, which are permitted are those written with Du'as, which are evident from Qur’an and Ahadith only. Here are the narrations, which show that it is permitted for a person to put a Ta’weez around his/her neck.

Allama Alusi Hanafi in his Tafsir of the Qur’an writes: According to Imam Malik Rahmatullah ‘It is permitted to put around the neck the Ta’weez written with the name of Allah? Imam Baqir also stated that it is permitted to put such a Ta’weez around the neck of a child. [Rooh-ul-Ma’ani, chapter 15" under verse 97 of Surah Mu'minoon]

Allama Shami Hanafi Rahmatullah writes: 

It is permitted to write a Ta’weez and put it around the neck. He further adds that it would be better if a person recites the Du'as taught by the Prophet (Sallallahu’ alaihi wa sallam.) But if a person cannot read or is too young to recite then it is permitted for that person to put it around the neck
[Rud-ul-Mukhtar chapter Qirat, Sharah Sahih Muslim chapter on Tib by Allama Sa’idi].

To conclude it can be said that those verses that oppose the Qur’an, Shari’ah, or the Sunnah are forbidden to read and also forbidden to put around the neck. But as for the Du'as and verses from the Qur’an and Sunnah it is permitted to be written and put around the neck of a small child or an illiterate or a sick person.

Aims of Nikah: In Light of Ahadith

Aims of Nikah: In Light of Ahadith


It has already been mentioned that if Nikah is performed in order to act upon a Sunnah of RasoolAllah À then it is worship and if it is performed to fulfil sexual desires then the Nikah will still be valid but you will be deprived of receiving reward for it. Let us look at some of those Ahadith in which Allah Ta’ala’s Beloved Prophet À has mentioned the aims of
Nikah in clear words.
(1) Performing Nikah to act upon a Sunnah:
Hazrat Abu Hurairah narrates that RasoolAllah À said, “He who does not follow my traditions (Sunnahs) is not from me Islamic Concept of Nikah (not one of my followers).” (Bukhari Shareef Hadith 5063, Muslim Shareef Hadith 3469)
In another Hadith it states, “Whoever loves me should act upon my Sunnahs and undoubtedly performing Nikah is my Sunnah.” (Kanzul A’amaal Hadith 44413) In this Hadith RasoolAllah À has stated that Nikah is his Sunnah and has urged people to perform Nikah and cautioned against avoiding it.
(2) Performing Nikah to increase the human race:
Hazrat Abu Dawood narrates on the authority of Hazrat Mu’aqal bin Yasaar Ä that RasoolAllah À said, “Marry women who love you and who will produce offspring because (on the Day of Judgment) I will have pride on your increased numbers in front of the other nations (Ummahs).” (Abu Dawood Shareef Hadith 2052)
(3) Performing Nikah in order to avoid sins:
Hazrat Abdullah bin Mas’ood Ä narrates that RasoolAllah À said, “O Young men! Those of you who have the strength to manage a home should get married as this lowers the gaze and guards the private parts. The person who does not have the means to manage a home should Fast as this decreases sexual desire.” (Muslim Shareef Hadith 3464)
Each person is entrusted with sexual desire and it is necessary to have a lawful wife in order to fulfil this desire otherwise he will be embroiled in various sins and be deserving of the wrath of Allah Ta’ala. Therefore, if a person has the means he should get married in order to be safeguarded from shamefulness and punishment in both worlds.
Aims of Nikah: In Light of the Quran

Aims of Nikah: In Light of the Quran


Performing Nikah is worship provided the intention is correct and the aim is to act upon the Sunnah of the Beloved Prophet. The aims of Nikah have been mentioned very clearly in many verses of the Qur’an and some of them are being mentioned below.
Allah Ta’ala states:
“And among His signs is that He created spouses for you from yourselves for you to gain rest from them, and kept love and mercy between yourselves; indeed in this are signs for the people who ponder.” (Surah Rum Verse 21)
In relation to the above verse, Zia-ul-Ummah, Hazrat Allama Peer Muhammed Karam Shah Azhari writes:
‘The path of life is very difficult. There are roadblocks at every step with many issues, difficulties, setbacks and disappointments. In spite of all this, the order is given to recognise the Lord and be merciful to His creations. We have been locked in a box and placed at the bottom of the ocean and then are ordered to get out safely and not get wet. However, in order to comfort and console humans, to keep their faltering feet steady, to lift the burden of worries and issues from their shoulders, the merciful Lord gave him a wife from his own species to accompany him on this journey. As well as being of the same species, he placed pure and firm love and mercy in their hearts for one another to bring them even closer together. This relationship is not only for when they are healthy, young and times are good. Rather this
relationship will not break when misfortune strikes or times are hard. As the clouds of sadness grow darker and more menacing, this loves becomes brighter and stringer. When times are bad, their closeness and affection becomes even stronger. Additionally, they are created in such a manner that they are both incomplete without each other. The achievement of their desires, dreams, wishes and happiness is dependent on them being with one another.
Just think! If the light of love did not illuminate this dangerous road (of life) and if (a married couple’s) love and mercy did not help and support one another then how difficult and frightening would this journey of life be? May thousands of our lives be sacrificed on that merciful Creator who created woman from man and then joined them in such a way through love and mercy that even thinking about being away from them is distressing.’ (Zia-ul-Qur’an, Vol 3, Page 568)
Allah Ta’ala states in the Qur’an:
“It is He Who created you from a single soul, and from him made its mate for him to gain comfort with her…” (Surah Aa’raaf Verse 189)
He also states:
“And Allah created you from clay, then a drop of liquid, then made you as couples…” (Surah Faatir Verse 11)
“The Maker of the heavens and the earth; He has created pairs for you from yourselves and pairs from the animals…” (Surah Shu’raa Verse 11)
Additionally, the Lord of the world’s states:

“And it is We who created you in pairs.” (Surah Nabaa Verse 8)
It is clear from the verses mentioned above that this relationship is a supreme creation of Allah Ta’ala. The Almighty does not desire that anyone should live alone and be without a partner which he why He did not allow the Father of mankind Hazrat Adam à to be alone. The next thing he created was Hazrat Hawwa Ǻ . When mankind stepped onto this earth he was not alone, he had a partner and when mankind steps into Paradise he will also have a partner, just as Allah Ta’ala has stated:
“Indeed this day the dwellers of Paradise are in comfort, with blissful hearts. They and their wives are in shades, reclining on thrones.” (Surah Yasin Verses 55-56)
Allah Ta’ala has not only created pairs for humans but He has created pairs for all creations. Just as He has stated:
“And We created all things in pairs, so that you may ponder.” (Surah Thaariyaat Verse 49)
In relation to the above verse, Sadrul Afaadil, Hazrat Syed Allama Na’eemuddin Muradabaadi  states:
‘For example heaven and earth, sun and moon, night and day, dry and wet, hot and cold, humans and jinn, light and darkness, infidelity and faith, good fortune and misfortune, truth and falsehood and males and females. Everything was created in pairs so that humans would ponder and realise that all these were created the Almighty One who has no similarity, no partner, no pair, no parallel and He is the only one worthy of worship.’ (Khaza-inul Irfan)
