Writing aayahs and tying them on one’s  body

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:
What is the ruling on writing Qur’aan or dhikr on pieces of paper and attaching them to parts of the body such as the chest etc., or folding them and putting them on one’s molars, or writing some parts of prescribed du’aa’s and wrapping it in leather and putting it under one’s bed or elsewhere, or hanging up amulets if they contain Qur’aan, dhikr or du’aa’?
(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.)

Praise be to Allaah.

 Attaching pieces of paper on which are written verses from the Qur’aan or du’aas to the body or some part of it, or putting them under the bed, etc., is not permitted, because it comes under the category of hanging up amulets which is forbidden by the hadeeth of the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him):

“”Whoever hangs up amulets, may Allaah not fulfil his need.”


“Incantations, amulets and being attached to tangible things are shirk.”

 And Allaah knows best.

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.
