Read about healing using false superstitious methods (Amulets, Taweez, Lucky Charms, and more) …

Assalamu-Alaikum and Greetings !

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)

A dream of an educated world

Why is education important?

Well, the first ayah revealed to the Prophet Peace and Blessings of Allah be upon him was

Read! In the Name of your Lord, Who has created (all that exists),

See that bold there? READ! The very first revelation given to the Prophet Peace and Blessings of Allah be upon him emphasised the importance of education. Without education we would know nothing! We would be totally lost, unaware of the world and how to live in it.

There would be no scholars, scientists, doctors, engineers, lawyers, mathematicians, and so on and so forth. Because education is needed to understand and learn and teach and develop. Nothing comes from no where and we’re not suddenly going to know everything!

  • I think, one of the main reasons why 3rd world countries are 3rd world countries is because of the lack of education. Yes, obviously poverty is very important, but the people need education to get themselves out of that poverty. People need education to know how best to run the country, how best to provide for the people, how best to take care of the people. People need education to live a good life.

    Parents need education
    Everyone knows the home is the first school of a child and so every parent must be able to give their a child a good start in life. However the parent needs to be educated beforehand to be able to do this. Yes, they can copy their parents, and people around them, but the best example is the example of the Prophet Peace and Blessings of Allah be upon him and what Islam says. A lack of education can result in parents passing on a form of Islam which is mixed with culture and passes on a lot of negative traits.

    Whereas a childhood centred around Islam will teach the child the right morals, the right etiquette for everything in life; from relationships, to eating, to sleeping, to everything! This will no doubt help them become great Muslims who are going to succeed in whatever they do. Whether that be just parents themselves, or doctors and lawyers and teachers or whatever. Their continuous education will help them understand Allah and learn to deal with all sorts of tribulations.

    And I’ve seen parents who aren’t educated who simply don’t realise some things are bad for their children. They just can’t comprehend it because it’s never been taught and they don’t realise the consequences of things. That’s where secular education comes in. I’m not saying everyone should be educated to degree level but at least to GCSE level and it’s equivalence. This would help them grasp and understanding of science and maths etc which are pretty vital imo. They need to be taught to understand how things work and in turn how we should do things.

    Why am I ranting?
    Because having an education is a human right and duty, given to us by Allah (swt). Everyone needs and deserves it; man, woman, old and young. It really gets to me when I see parents who aren’t giving their children the best start in life because of a lack of deen (and I feel sorry for those who weren’t fortunate enough to have an education themselves). It really bugs me that women are being deprived of education when…what’s that saying? ‘Educate a man, educate an individual, educate a woman, educate a nation’! It really bugs me that some people are just too poor to get the most basic education.

    I want everyone to have the opportunity to learn. I want to make a change. I wish I could. One day insha’Allah.
