asslamu’alaikum ya Sayyidi Mawlana Sh. Hisham (q) and eshaikh staff, may ALLAH bless you all. I buyed ta’wiz that is in the form of necklace last week from the RUMICafe Jakarta, Indonesia. The rumicafe staff told me that the ta’wiz is original from Turkey and it had been blessed by Mawlana Sh. Nazim (q). What is the difference of the ta’wiz that blessed and not blessed? What is the use (benefit) of the ta’wiz? Wassalamu’alaikum
wa `alaykum salam,
Tawiz means in Arabic ruqya and that is recommended by the Prophet (s) in many hadith and one of them the sahaba were wearing this ruqya on their neck. They asked the Prophet (s) to confirm this practice and he did. It must be from Quran or hadith or praising sahaba.
So all ruqya or tawiz has no difference in them if the Shaykh blows on them. We don’t say blessed them but we say he read on them. like someone has a car with no fuel, it doesnt run. you need the fuel so blowing off the shaykh on the ruqya or tawiz means it will give it an activation. although already it is a blessed ruqya but it will give more a spiritual taste to it that you are carrying somethigng that has been blessed.
The benefit of the ruqya is mentioned in many ahadith of the Prophet (s).
