Ruling on sick person visualizing the one who put the evil eye on him

Dear Brothers & Sisters,
As-Salaamu-Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
How correct is it for a sick person to visualize the one who put the eye on him as a result of Qur’aan being recited over him, or the raaqi asking his qareen (jinn companion) to show the sick person who put the eye on him?
(There may be some grammatical and spelling errors in the above statement. The forum does not change anything from questions, comments and statements received from our readers for circulation in confidentiality.)

Answer:

Praise be to Allaah.

For the sick person to visualize the one who put the eye on him as a result of Qur’aan being recited over him, or the qaari’ (reciter) telling him to do so, is a devilish action and is not permitted, because it is seeking the help of the shayaateen (devils). The jinn is the one who makes him visualize the person who afflicted him with the evil eye, and this is haraam, because it is seeking the help of the shayaateen, and because it creates enmity among people and causes fear and terror to be spread among people. It comes under the aayah (interpretation of the meaning):

“And verily, there were men among mankind who took shelter with the males among the jinn, but they (jinn) increased them (mankind) in sin and transgression”

[al-Jinn 72:6]

And Allaah knows best.

 [Translator’s note: Raaqi means one who does ruqyah i.e., reciting Qur’aan and du’aa’s over the sick for the purpose of seeking healing]

Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah's Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
