The article below sheds light on the bad practice of using amulets (referred to by other names such as Tamimah, “Taweez”, Lucky charms, etc.) for healing purposes and also for prevention of bad omens. Many Muslims, unfortunately, still mistakenly believe in such practices even though it is considered as a major act of shirk in Islam.
This is an issue, therefore, that we should take seriously because as we know, any act of shirk (associating others with Allah) puts one out of the fold of Islam.
The article below covers excerpts from a sermon that was delivered by a renowned Islamic scholar. It covers some of the issues related to this topic. As you read through it, ensure that you pay attention to the ahadith of the prophet on this matter.
If you know others who may be mistakenly engaging in such practices or believe in them, do forward this E-mail to them as well.
Healing using false superstitious methods (Amulets, Taweez, Lucky Charms, and more)
The following sermon was delivered by Shaikh Abdul-Aziz bin Abdullah bin Hasan AlShaikh and addresses the misguidance of people wearing Tamimah (also referred to by names such as amulets / Taweez / talisman, etc.) for the purpose of healing or preventing problems. As we can see that such acts are not only prohibited, they constitute Shirk, which is the worst forms of sin and puts the person out of Islam.
– Start of the sermon text:
Allah the Exalted said:
“And if Allah touches you with harm, there is none who can remove it but He, and if He intends any good for you, there is none who can repel His Favour which He causes it to reach whomsoever of His slaves He wills. And He is the Oft-Forgiving, the Most Merciful.” (10:107)
