The Evil Eye

Credit: Nur Penceresi


Assalamu aleikum Hayati family and readers,

I apologize for being so MIA in the last two months. Family and work lives took a toll on me. Please make dua for me and insha’Allah I’ll be more active here going forward.

So today, let’s talk about evil eye. As Muslims, whenever we see another person prosper or happier than us, we get a ping of envy or jealousy in our hearts. This also happens when we see someone having something we have been desiring for ages. As a result, it creates intentional or unintentional evil eye geared at the person who is happy and prosperous.

We’re all humans and the unintentional evil eye happens even when we don’t even realize it. We just need to pray as soon as it happens to ask Allah to protect the person we envy from our evil eye that our naf, ego feels.

Now, for the people who intentionally give evil eye to others for the kick of it, I pray that they see how wrong it is and that they stop. I also pray that Allah forgives them, amiin.

May Allah make us of one of those who always say masha’Allah upon hearing and seeing good news, amiin. To learn more on the evil eye, click here
