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

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.

Learn about Islam Religion - The Five pillars of Islam

Learn about Islam Religion - The Five pillars of Islam

What is Islam and What makes one a complete Muslim.

Islam is attainment of peace through submission to Allah. There are five pillars of Islam which form the base foundation of Islam and one who follows it makes a complete Muslim.

Learn about Islam Religion - The Five pillars of Islam

These are


There is no god worthy of worship except God and Muhammad is His messenger.

This declaration of faith is called the Shahada, a simple formula which all the faithful pronounce.
In Arabic, the first part is

La ilaha illa Llah - 'there is no god except God';

ilaha (god) can refer to anything which we may be tempted to put in place of God - wealth, power, and the like. Then comes illa Llah: 'except God', the source of all Creation.

The second part of the Shahada is

Muhammadun rasulu'Llah: 'Muhammad is the messenger of God.'

A message of guidance has come through a man like ourselves.

declaration of faith is called the Shahada


Shalat is the name for the obligatory prayers which are performed five times a day, and are a direct link between the worshipper and God. The prayers are led by a learned person who knows the Quran, chosen by the congregation. These five prayers contain verses from the Quran, and are said in Arabic, the language of the Revelation, but personal supplication can be offered in one's own language. Because shalat is transliterated from arabic word, so it has multiple english spellings such as salat, salah, sholat, sholah or shalah.Some peoples also called shalat as namaz

Prayers are said at dawn, noon, mid-afternoon, sunset and nightfall, and thus determine the rhythm of the entire day. Although it is preferable to worship together in a mosque, a Muslim may pray almost anywhere, such as in fields, offices, factories and universities. Visitors to the Muslim world are struck by the centrality of prayers in daily life.

A translation of the Call to Prayer is:

God is most great. God is most great.
God is most great. God is most great.
I testify that there is no god except God.
I testify that there is no god except God.
I testify that Muhammad is the messenger of God.
I testify that Muhammad is the messenger of God.
Come to prayer! Come to prayer!
Come to success (in this life and the Hereafter)!
Come to success!
God is most great. God is most great.
There is no god except God.


One of the most important principles of Islam is that all things belong to God, and that wealth is therefore held by human beings in trust. The word zakat means both 'purification' and 'growth'. Our possessions are purified by setting aside a proportion for those in need, and, like the pruning of plants, this cutting back balances and encourages new growth.


Every year in the month of Ramadan, all Muslims fast from first light until sundown, abstaining from food, drink, and sexual relations. Those who are sick, elderly, or on a journey, and women who are pregnant or nursing are permitted to break the fast and make up an equal number of days later in the year. If they are physically unable to do this, they must feed a needy person for every day missed. Children begin to fast (and to observe the prayer) from puberty, although many start earlier.


The annual pilgrimage to Makkah - the Hajj - is an obligation only for those who are physically and financially able to perform it. Nevertheless, about two million people go to Makkah each year from every corner of the globe providing a unique opportunity for those of different nations to meet one another. Although Makkah is always filled with visitors, the annual Hajj begins in the twelfth month of the Islamic year (which is lunar, not solar, so that Hajj and Ramadan fall sometimes in summer, sometimes in winter). Pilgrims wear special clothes: simple garments which strip away distinctions of class and culture, so that all stand equal before God.

When was Islam's first mosque built

When was Islam's first mosque built

On reaching Quba, Rasoolullah Sallallahu 'Alayhi Wasallam had a Mosque constructed. The Mosque was named ‘Musjid-e-Quba’. This Mosque was renovated on numerous occasions over numerous periods of time.

They reached Quba on the 8th of Rabi-ul-Awwal 13 Nabawi and remained there for fourteen days.

  • Between 87 Hijri and 93 Hijri, Hazrat Umar bin Abdul Aziz renovated it whilst doing renovations of Musjid-e-Nabawi
  • In 435 Hijri Abu Ya’la constructed the Mehraab (Pulpit) in the Mosque.
  • In 555 Hijri, Jamaalud’deen Isfahaani did renovation to the Mosque
  • In 681 Hijri there were further renovations done
  • In 733 Hijri it was worked on again
  • In 881 Hijri Qaatiba, the Egyptian King renovated it and rebuilt the Mehraab and Mimbar.
  • In 1245 Hijri Sultan Mahmood Thaani Uthmani extended the Mosque giving it a face-lift.
  • In 1351 Abdul Aziz did some renovations to the Mosque (Monthly Istiqaamat Magazine Kanpur – 1985)

A further renovation was also done by the Turks in 1389 Hijri and then further extensions continued.

Rasoolullah Sallallahu 'Alayhi Wasallam arrived in Madinah Munawwarah on a Monday, the22nd of Rabi-ul-Awwal from Quba. Rasoolullah Sallallahu 'Alayhi Wasallam made his Hijrat (migration) whilst riding on a camel called Qiswa. In the same year, from the 16 July 622 C.E. the beginning of the Hijri Calendar commenced, but it was only officially introduced during the era of Hazrat Umar-e-Farouk radhiallahu anhu on a Thursday, the 3rd of Jamadis Thaani 17 Hijri.

Importance of Friday prayers (Jumma Salat) in Islam | Jumma ke Ehkaam

Importance of Friday prayers (Jumma Salat) in Islam | Jumma ke Ehkaam

Juma ka din hum Musalmano ke liye EID jaisa darja rakhta hai.
Juma ke din ki hui ek neki ka ajr 70 guna badh kar milta hai.

Aur ek burai ka Gunah bhi 70 gunah badh kar milta hai.

1. Juma ko gusal zaroor kare. Huzur saw ne farmaya"Jis shakhs ne JUMA ko (paak hone ke bawjood sirf sawaab ki niyat se) gusal kiya to uske agle pichle sab gunah maaf ho jate hain "Ek dusri hadees me hain ki "Juma ka Gusal baalo ki jadon me se bhi Gunaho ko bhi nikal phekta hai"

2. Juma ko Kasrat se Durood padhe. Kyunki Juma ko farishto ki ek jamaat sirf isi kaam me hoti hai ki Huzur saw per padha jane wala DUROOD aap ke paas pahuchati hai. Sabse afzal DURROD IBRAHIM hai.

3. JUMA ko SALAAT-ut-TASBEEH ki namaz bhi padhe. Huzur saw ne farmaya ki "Ye namaz jo padhta hai uske agle-pichle, chote-bade, jaan bijh kar kiye hue aur anjane me kiye hue, sageera aur kabeera, sab Gunah maaf ho jate hain." Aur JUMA ko sab amal ka sawaab 70 guna badh kar milta hai to is ki Fazeelat aur badh jati hai.

4. JUMA ko ASR ki namaz ke baad jo shaks ye DUROOD 80 padhega "ALLAHUMMA SALLI ALAA MUHAMMADIN NABIYIL UMMIYEE WA ALAA AALIHI WASALLIM TASLEEMA" to uske 80 saal ke Gunah maaf honge aur 80 saal ki Ibadat uske aamaal-naame me likhi jaegi.

5. JUMA ko SURA KAHF padhe, Huzur saw ne farmaya "Jo shakhs Juma ko Sura Kahf padhega to agle hafte tak uske saath ek noor rahega jo KAABE tak pahuchta hoga aur agar is dauran DAJJAL nikal aaya to uske fitne se mahfooz rahega" Ek dusri Hadees me hai ki "Jo shakhs JUMA ko SURA KAHF padhega to agle hafte tak ke uske Gunaho ka kaffara ho jaega"

ALLAH hum sab ko tofiq de aur zyada se zyada DEEN ki mehnat karne wala banaye.

Jumma Namaz Q&A
