Evil Eye

Evil Eye:

The Evil Eye is the name for a sickness / misfortune whereby it changes your circumstances dramatically & almost instantly. It is transmitted, usually with or without intention, by someone who is envious, jealous, and covetous or  without intention by a pious person from among man or jinn.  The Evil eye in the modern day is known as a 'jinx', in most case unintentionally done.  For example, one stating that they have a nice car which never breaks down, then it breaks down soon after. In Islam, that very thing is called 'Evil Eye'.

The Evil eye is open to affect anyone but especially the very young, wealthy and beautiful. To put an evil eye on someone it's not necessary to physically see the individual in person etc. as it can be transmitted just by speaking about an individual, visualizing / imagining them etc. It can therefore be done from both near and afar.

For example:

A person can also cast-out an evil eye even on themselves whilst looking at themselves in the mirror and being pleased with what they see.

A blind person can also put an evil eye just as easily by visualizing himself or a person.

A mother can unintentionally cast out a evil eye on her child etc.


Proof of Evil Eye / Nazar in The Holy Qur'an and Hadith:

"..And from the evil of the envier when he envieth."[Quran Surah Al Falaq 113]

The Prophet (SAW) said: "The evil eye is real, and if anything were to overtake the divine decree (al-qadar) it would be the evil eye." [Muslim]
