Can A Muslim Wear An Amulet?

A Mindful Talk!
Have you been given an amulet (tira, rings, “holy” water, bante, etc) by any alfa, pastor, etc and you still have them?
Do you believe it brought your destiny to pass?

The wearing and using of amulets these days is becoming too common. Let me tell you of a hadith which 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)

What is an amulet?
Amulets ( tameemah, pl. tamaa’im ) are things made from pearls or bones that are worn on the necks of children or adults, or
are hung up in houses or cars, in order to ward off evil – especially the evil eye – or to bring some benefits.

The scholars agreed that it is haraam to wear amulets if they contain anything other than Qur’aan, but they differed concerning those which do contain Qur’aan. Some of them said that wearing these is permitted, and others said that it is not permitted. The view that it is not permitted is more likely to be correct because of the general meaning of the ahaadeeth, and in
order to prevent means of shirk .

Kindy share with others.May Allaah forgive us of our misdeeds (Aameen)
