In Islamic culture, taweez are amulets that are believed to have some supernatural qualities. They are often adorned with numbers or verses from the Quran, and are used to bring success in one’s life. They can also protect the wearer from evil eyes and evil spirits.
Taweez Are Permissible
If the Taweez islam has a Quran ayat or dorud sharif, then it is permissible to wear it. However, if it contains something other than the Quran ayat and dorud sharif then it is considered to be haraam in Islam.
The Role of Taweez in Sufi Healing and Protection
The Prophet (may Allah bless him and grant him peace) said, “Those who have taweez (amulets with Qur’an inside or numbers representing the Qur’an) around their necks are in great danger of shirk. Those who do this will not attain success in their aims, will not acquire what they desire, nor will they have calmness or comfort. They will have no share in the Hereafter.”
It is a Misguidance
There are several authentic ahadith that prohibit wearing taweez or amulets for the purpose of seeking healing or averting harm, and it is a form of shirk. This is because it is a way of diverting the hearts of Muslims from relying on God alone, and it is a means of making them dependent upon other than Him.
It is Improper Conclusion
There is a difference of opinion between the scholars on whether it is permissible to wear taweez that contain only the words of the Qur’aan or the names and attributes of Allaah SWT. The majority of the scholars say that it is permissible, and this view is derived from the ahaadeeth narrated by ‘Abd-Allaah ibn ‘Amr ibn al-‘Aas, Hudhayfah, ‘Uqbah ibn ‘Aamir and Ibn ‘Akeem (may Allaah be pleased with them).
In conclusion, it is permissible to wear taweez or amulets if they are written with du’as from the Qur’an and ahadith that have healing powers, but this should be done with moderation.
