Evil Eye And Its Cure. by Taamas111 (m): 3:17pm on January 13

I heard a Hadeeth that the Prophet said
that "A person can escape from stones but
not from evil eyes." Is this true? I have this
because I have been often ruined by it. My
neighbor lady who has an afflicted child
looks at my children and very often my
children and wife fall sick. Is there any
remedy? In my home place there is a
superstition that they take raw food item in a
bowl and circle it around the head of the
person on whom the eye has fallen .What
did the Qur'an and Prophet say about it?

All perfect praise be to Allah, The Lord of the
Worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of
worship except Allah, and that Muhammad
is His Slave and Messenger.

The effect of the evil eye is a confirmed
truth but it does not affect except with the
Will and Decree of Allah. It does not harm
anybody save with the Predestination of
Allah. The Prophet said: " The evil eye is
true and if anything could be faster (in
having an effect) than the predestination,
then the evil eye would have been (that
thing). " [Muslim]
So you have to protect yourself and your
children by reading the Qur'an and saying
the designated supplications of the morning
and evening, it might be that by doing so,
you will be protected from the effect of evil
eye. If, however, it is predestined that
someone will be affected by an evil eye, then
Allah has permitted the means of treating it.

In case you know the person who affected
you with an evil eye, then you can ask him to
perform a ritual washing then wash yourself
with water that had been used by the person
who had affected you, and, Allah willing, you
will be cured. The person who had affected
you should do the following: He should wash
his face, hands, elbows, knees, the end of his
feet, and the inside of his lower garment in a
vessel. Then he should pour the water over
Indeed the Prophet said in the
continuation of the abovementioned
narration: " And if you were asked to perform
ritual washing for the person who is
affected, then perform it. " However, it
should be noted that a person should not
accuse a Muslim of affecting him with an evil
eye without evidence. Basically, a Muslim is
innocent until the contrary is proven. If it is
not known who affected a person with an
evil eye, then it can be treated by Ruqyah,
and that is to read verses from the Qur'an
and say prophetic supplications, like reading
chapter Al-Faatihah, verses: 255, 285 and
286 from chapter Al-Baqarah (the Cow) and
chapters: 112, 113 and 114 and other
chapters or verses. As regards what has been
stated in the question as placing food around
the person who is affected by the evil eye,
we do not know any evidence about it, and
this matter is closer to superstition than to
the truth.

Also, we are not aware of any evidence of
the narration stated in the question.
However, it is confirmed in the narration
that we previously stated that the evil eye is
true. Its danger is stated in the narration of
the Prophet who said: " The evil eye kills
(makes the person enter the grave) and
makes the camel enter a pot, (i.e. has an
amazing effect). "

Allah knows best.
