Shaykh, are we allowed to wear taweez for protection from black magic and the evil jinns ? If so, could you recommend where we can get one as someone in my family has been afflicted with sihr. Can you also tell of the important dua‘s that can be recited for this purpose ? jazakallah
A long time ago when I was young, Grandshaykh `Abdullah al-Faiz ad-Daghestani used to give people, not everyone, but people who really have evil eye on them or they been attacked by bad jinn or shaytans from jinn and ins, and they had problems, he used to give them a tawiz written in a circular way and people were taking it and finding lot of benefit.
Grandshaykh told us in a suhbat, that he was ordered to sleep, to take rest, and because he was living in Jabal (the mountain) Qasyoun in Sham, Damascus, on the top of the mountain, and there were no homes there at that time except his home. He said at that mountain had lot of jinn whose job was to protect Sham ash-shareef, and some evil jinn used to come to attack the mumin jinn. He was ordered to rest, lay down, put a pen in his hand and in a state between sleeping and wakefulness, he was seeing the Prophet (s) give him the recitation of that tawiz to him and he wrote it as it was dictated to him. He wrote it in a circular way so that the recitations spiral inside each other until they reach the center. He was told in the vision by the Prophet (s) saying that this will protect (the wearer/holder). That is because it contains Allah’s Beautiful Names and Attributes and the Beautiful Names and names of other Ashab an-Nabi (Companions of the Prophet) and some other people that Allah gave permission to these people to take care of someone hit by black magic, or a devil and it reads like that:
laa ilaaha ill ‘Llah Muhammad rasulullah sall-allahu `alayhi wa sallam wa `ala alihi wa sahbihi wa sallam, ya Rahman ya Rahim ya Musta`an, ya Allah; ya Muhammad sall-allahu ta`ala `alayhi wa sallam wa `ala alihi wa sahbihi wa sallam, ya Aba Bakr, ya `Umar, ya `Uthman, ya `Ali, ya Hasan, ya Husayn, ya Yahya, ya Halim, wa laa hawla wa laa quwatta illa billah il-`aliyyi ‘l-`azhim, Shahamatu ’l-Fardani, Yusuf as-Siddiq, `Abdur-Rauf al-Yamani, Imamu ‘l-`Arifin Amanu ‘l-Haqq, Lisanul-mutakallimin `Awn’Llah as-Sakhawi, `Araf at-Tayyar, al-Ma`ruf bi-Mulhan, Burhanu’l-Kurama Ghawthi ‘l-Anam, ya Sahib az-Zaman Sayyidina al-Mahdi, ya `Isa ya Sahib al-`Unsur, ya Khidr.
He wrote it in the way that it was dictated to him and he was ordered to write it and then he was giving it out to people to destroy the effect of any shayatin (maradatul-jinn, the kuffar of jinn called maradat) to protect people from their attacks and to protect the wearer from the evil eye and difficulties.
Further the one who writes this tawiz has to write it with zafaran (saffron) ink using a metal pen, (stylus). It must be dipped in saffron ink and it must be written by a child, either a girl or boy that has not reached maturity in order to be more effective. That is because what is pure has to be with done by someone pure. Something pure cannot be written by someone who is not pure as then it will not have any effect. So Grandshaykh used to assign someone to write it and I am not hiding from you that was Hajjah Naziha, may Allah give her shifa and long life. She was the one to write all these tawizes (also known as ruqya or hijab) for Grandshaykh. She used to take full wudu and then write it, and she did that from age 7 until she reached maturity. Grandshaykh used to pass them to those in need.
Nowadays due to too many people coming with problems of black magic, and other major issues, they are using a printer to reproduce the tawiz, and alhamdulillah with the secret that is in it, it is still effective even though it is not handwritten. Those who are asking can order it and we can send it to them.
I am also quite positive if they are in Pakistan, the UK or the US, Indonesia, South Africa, Canada, and other areas, they can contact the Naqshbandi center nearest to them and get the tawiz.
However if they need further recitations it then depends on every individual situation, and on problem. Therefore they should send their request to us, and we will assign what they have to read.
That is one aspect, and for this particular person who is asking Mawlana Shaykh Nazim informed me now you recite 3 Surat al-Ikhlas, Surat al-Falaq, Surat an-Nas. When you reach wa min sharri ‘n-nafathati fil-`uqad, blow on yourself and insha-Allah end by reciting one Surat al-Fatiha and you will all be safe from the black magic you have and Allahu `alam bis-sawab.
