Dua Seeking the Protection of Allah from the Evil Eye | Printable Dua

eye ev How to protect yourself and your child/ren against the evil eye?

The Arabic word al-‘ayn (translated as the evil eye) refers to when a person harms another with his eye. It starts when the person likes a thing, then his evil feelings affect it, by means of his repeated looking at the object of his jealousy.

Ibn al-Qayyim said:

Everyone who gives the evil eye is jealous, but not everyone who is jealous gives the evil eye… then he said:

It begins when the person likes something, then his evil soul dwells on the matter, and by continually looking at the person who has the thing of which he feels jealous, he directs his venom towards him. A person may put the evil eye on himself, or he may put the evil eye on someone else without intending to, because it is is a part of his nature. This is the worst type of human being.

The evil eye is like an arrow which comes from the soul of the one who envies and the one who puts the evil eye on another towards the one who is envied and on whom the evil eye is put; sometimes it hits him and sometimes it misses. If the target is exposed and unprotected, it will affect him, but if the target is cautious and armed, the arrow will have no effect and may even come back on the one who launched it. Adapted from Zaad al-Ma’aad.

A. How to protect oneself against the evil eye:
اَعُوْذُ بِكَلِمَاتِ اللهِ التَّامَّةِ مِنْ كُلِّ شَيْطَانٍ ، وَهَامَّةٍ ، وَمِنْ كُلِّ عَيْنٍ لَامَّةٍ Continue reading

Review: Understand Qur’an Academy

PSX_20150417_230057Assalamu’alaikum,

Alhamdulillah, I’m happy to have had the opportunity to try out this amazing program from the Understand the Qur’an Academy (UQA) for 30 days. MashaAllah, the teacher is really knowledgeable! May Allah reward him and his team for all the efforts for helping us to understand the book of Allah.

When learning to read from the Qur’an, the first thing that needs to be learnt is the tajweed. This is the way in which the prophet used to recite and therefore we should follow in his footsteps. Once we learn how to read the Qur’an, it also helps to understand the words and their meanings. This is what the course by the UQA entails, a person gains the ability to understand the meaning of every single word!

My experience with UQA has been great! I’ve been looking for an effective way to know the meaning of the Qur’an without  having to learn the Arabic language first. Continue reading

Thunder and Lightning in Islam

ThunderAssalamu’alaikum,

Saying Subhana Allah when seeing the lightning or hearing the thunder is a supererogatory act.
