As Salaamu Alaikum. I would like to know can hasad (envy) change your Taqdeer? I know that it can cause physical illness, but can it change the Divine Decree of Allah in aspects like getting married, having children etc.?


wa `alaykum salam,

Al-Hasad (the destructive envy) and Al-‘Ayn (the evil eye) are real.

Qur’an teaches:

قُلْ أَعُوذُ بِرَبِّ الْفَلَقِ
مِن شَرِّ مَا خَلَقَ
وَمِن شَرِّ غَاسِقٍ إِذَا وَقَبَ
وَمِن شَرِّ النَّفَّاثَاتِ فِي الْعُقَدِ
وَمِن شَرِّ حَاسِدٍ إِذَا حَسَدَ

Say: I seek refuge with the Lord of the daybreak,
From the evil of that which He created
And from the evil of darkness when it settles
And from the evil of the witchcrafts when they blow in the knots,
And from the evil of the envier when he envies.

‘Abdullah ibn ‘Abbaas radiyaAllahu ‘anhuma narrated: The Messenger sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam said:

العين حق ولو كان شيء سابَق القدر لسبقته العين

The evil eye is real, and if anything were to overtake the divine decree (al-qadar) it would be the evil eye. (Muslim # 2188)
