One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:

Assalamu Aleikum


I would really appreciate if you can give me a prompt reply on this.


Brother, once I had a severe headache and I went to almost all the doctors but they said due to stress I was having the headache. But even after medicines I was still getting the headache. Then when I had gone to my home country, one religious person said this was an evil effect and he prayed for me and gave water to drink and completely the headache disappeared. Now for the last 1 years I didnt get the headache, Alhamdulillah. But since last two weeks I have been getting the headache once again. Please advise what should I do now about this.


Jassakallah Kairun.

Visit moulvi for headache cure

In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is none worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.

 

If one has a computer breakdown, would it be intelligence or wisdom to take the broken computer to the chemist??? To take a broken computer to a chemist for repairs is unwise in itself; but to top that and apply the remedy suggested by a chemist to repair a broken computer would be utter ignorance and foolhardy to say the least!

 

If one has a physical ailment, it is only prudent that one try to treat their ailment through the advice and treatment of a person qualified in the field of medicine. Seeking the help of a supposed religious priest or moulvi for a physical ailment makes as much sense at taking a broken computer to a chemist!

 

Your Question: Then when I had gone to my home country, one religious person said this was an evil effect and he prayed for me and gave water to drink and completely the headache disappeared.

Allah Says in His Holy Quran Chapter 35 Surah Fatir verse 2:

2 What Allah out of His Mercy doth bestow on mankind there is none can withhold: what He doth withhold there is none can grant apart from Him: and He is the Exalted in Power Full of Wisdom.

 

Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 3 Surah Ale Imraan verse 160:

If Allah helps you none can overcome you: if He forsakes you who is there after that that can help you? In Allah then let believers put their trust.

 

Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 6 Surah Anaam verse 17:

17 "If Allah touch thee with affliction none can remove it but He; if He touch thee with happiness He hath power over all things.


 

Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 33 Surah Ahzaab verse 3:

And put your trust in Allah Alone; and enough is Allah as a Disposer of affairs.

 

Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 9 Surah Taubah verse 51:

Say: "Nothing will happen to us except what Allah has decreed for us: He is our Protector"; and on Allah let the believers put their trust.

 

Dear and beloved brother in Islam, we guarantee you in the Blessed Name of Allah Subhanah, the moulvi, or his diagnosis of some evil effect, or his holy water had absolutely nothing, and we reiterate, absolutely nothing to do with the disappearance of your ailment! It is Allah Subhanah Alone Who afflicts whomsoever He Wills and Pleases to put in a trial; and it is Allah Subhanah Alone Who removes the afflictions of man whenever He Wills and Pleases to put an end to the period of trial.

 

Your Statement: .one religious person said this was an evil effect and he prayed for me and gave water to drink..

Al-Tirmidhi Hadith 3656 Narrated by Abu Musa al-Ash'ari

The Prophet (saws) said, "There are three who will not enter Paradise: one who is addicted to wine, one who breaks ties of relationship, and one who believes in (the effects of) magic."

 

Beloved Brother, the first thing we, as believers, must understand that those who claim to do magic, or harm people in the unseen, and even those who claim to remove the magic, or remove the supposed evil spell which they are supposedly cast under.such people and all their rites, rituals, charms, spells, and anti-dotes combined do not have the power to hurt or benefit anyone in the absolute least. No harm and no benefit can happen to the believer without the Will of Allah Subhanah. If Allah does not will it, all the magicians and moulvis of the world can get together and try their magic on someone, they cannot harm him in the least!; for Absolutely All Power and All Strength belongs to none save Allah Subhanah Alone!

 

Al-Tirmidhi Hadith 1019 Narrated by Abu Sa'id al-Khudri

The Prophet (saws) used to seek protection against the Jinn and the evil eye till Surahs al-Falaq and an-Naas were revealed. After they were revealed, he (saws) stuck to them and discarded everything beside them.

 

If one fears any evil from any quarter whatsoever, one should recite the Muawwidaat (113th Surah Al-Falaq and 114th Surah An-Naas) thus seeking refuge in the One and Only Lord Most High. Allah is our witness sister, there is no other or better source of refuge or protection than in Allah Subhanah, the Lord of the Worlds. After one has recited the Muawwidaat and remained constant in its recitation, one should know and believe with absolute conviction that they are under the refuge and protection of none other than Allah Subhanah, and no amount or combinations of Jinns, or magic doers, or evil-eyes, or any harm can come towards them from any quarter.

 

If one fears any evil from any quarter of the unseen and does anything else, like using a taaweedh, or an amulet, or a charm, or sprinkle water, or drinks or eats something given by the unscrupulous magic or evil effect removers or do absolutely anything else other than seeking refuge in their Lord and reciting the Muawwidhaat (Surahs 113 Al-Falaq and 114 An-Naas)..then it would be deemed that they have put their trust in a thing or being other than Allah Subhanah, and all such forms and rites would constitute the evil manifestation of shirk in the Sight of Allah Subhanah.

 

Uqbah ibn 'Amir narrates that the Messenger of Allah (saws) said: "If anyone wears an amulet (taaweedh), may Allah not help him in fulfilling his wish. If anyone wears a sea-shell around his neck, may Allah give him no peace."

Narrated by Ahmad and Al-Hakim.

 

It is reported from Ibn Mas'ud that once, when he entered his home, he noticed his wife wearing a knotted object round her neck. He took it away and broke it. Then he remarked: 'The family of Abdullah has become so arrogant that they now associate with Allah those for whom He has sent down no authority.' I have heard the Messenger of Allah (saws) saying: 'Verily, incantations, amulets, and love charms are acts of shirk (associating gods with Allah).' The people said: 'O Abu Abdullah! We are familiar with incantations and amulets, but what is a love charm (altawlah)'?' He replied: 'It is a sort of magical formula by which women sought to gain their husbands' love'." (Related by Al-Hakim and Ibn Hibban).

 

Imran ibn Hasin reports that the Messenger of Allah (saws) saw a man wearing a bracelet of copper on his arm. The Prophet (saws) exclaimed to him: 'Woe be to you!' What is this? ' The man replied: 'I am suffering from weakness (al-wahinah).' (Al-wahinah is a disease that causes pain in the shoulders and hands. The man was wearing a copper bracelet believing it would relieve his pain and suffering). The Prophet (saws) prohibited him from wearing it because he regarded it as an amulet. The Prophet (saws) said: 'It will give you nothing but pain. Throw it away. Had you died while wearing it, you would never have achieved salvation! (ie. you would have died in the state of the unforgivable sin of shirk'" (Narrated by Ahmad)

 

Your Question: . But since last two weeks I have been getting the headache once again. Please advise what should I do now about this.
Sahih Al-Bukhari Hadith 7.544 Narrated by Aisha

Allah's Messenger (saws) said, "No calamity befalls a Muslim but that Allah expiates some of his sins because of it, even though it were the prick he receives from a thorn."

 

Dear and beloved brother in Islam, rest absolutely assured that your ailment is not the effect of someones magic or evil spell, etc., but it is an affliction and a trial from your Lord Most Majestic, Most Supreme and there are only two lawful things you can and should do when afflicted with any trial or affliction:

  1. Seek every lawful asbaab or way available to cure the affliction; thus if you have a physical ailment like severe headache, you can and should approach a good qualified expert or doctor in the field of medicine and seek a remedy.
  2. Remain constant in your supplications to your Lord Creator, and humbly beseech and implore Him and Him Alone to make your affliction easy for you, bestow upon you Mercy and Patience, and remove the affliction from you as soon as possible.

 

Allah is our witness brother, if one seeks to cure ones affliction with a supposed remedy of the unseen (charms, spells, taaweedh, amulets, minnat, holy water, etc.).they would be guilty of the abomination of shirk in the Sight of Allah Subhanah!

 

If one trusts, obeys, and follows the guidance and commands of Allah and His Messenger (saws), one can be assured of never ever being misled; but if one believes, obeys and follows any other guidance, other than that of Allah and His Messenger (saws), one can be assured of being led astray.

Your brother and well wisher in Islam,

 

 

Burhan
