is a Talisman. Or to put it in another way, Taweez is
KINDS OF TAWEEZ
Taweez consist of a large square or rectangle which is
further divided into little squares. For example:
little square has either a part of a Verse from the Quran
written in Arabic or alternatively, a Verse, or Verses
from the Quran which are converted into there Abjad numerical
value and the sum obtained is manipulated in a certain
way. The result is the initial starting 'number' which
is used to fill the small squares. This 'number' is increased
as appropriate and that second 'number' is used to fill
the second square. And so on.
is the catch! There is a sequence in which the squares
are filled. They are not usually filled right to left
and top to bottom. There is a definite sequence. Therefore
simply copying a Taweez from a book is incorrect.
those who have studied digital electronics will have come
across the Karnaugh Map for hardware minimization. Even
that has a sequence for filling in the squares. However,
a Taweez does not follow that sequence.
majority of people in this day and age just copy a Taweez
from a book without following the sequence and they charge
money for this service. They sell the Ayats - Verses of
the Quran for a small gain. Yet they have no knowledge
of how the Taweez is made or how the squares need to be
they lack the knowledge of the Taweez, they copy the Taweez
without checking that the Taweez is correct or it has
days a lot of books are being printed with Taweez in them.
These books are being printed for monetary reasons only.
They are not checked by any person who understands Taweez.
They are usually full of errors. And then these doubtful
Taweez are copied by equally greedy people to give to
other people who come to them. The former make their living
out of copying Taweez for the latter.
rug, or the picture frame or the clock with the Ayat ul
Kursi are hung on a wall in one of the rooms of the house.
Why? Because the Ayat ul Kursi offers protection from
all kinds of evil and disasters.
it not ironic that the people who say "BIDAH" when it
comes to Taweez, that they hang these rugs and clocks
in a house to protect it? They want to protect from evil
and disasters the house that is made of bricks. When it
comes to protecting the REAL HOUSE which is the human
body, the house of the soul, they say "BIDAH" when someone
carries the Ayat ul Kursi on their person! Yet on death,
the house made of bricks is left behind, and the house
that was inhabited by the soul is buried like a treasure.
is unlawful to write a Taweez to sow discord between husband
and wife as it is clearly stated in Chapter 2 Al Baqara
in the Quran Majeed. Generally, it is totally forbidden
to write a Taweez which is against Shariat. Yet there
are people out there who will do anything for money. Both
the instigator and the writer of harmful Taweez will be
punished by Allah in this world and the next world.
TAWEEZ REALLY WORK ?
us learn a very simple lesson from science first. We have
all come across the term 'DNA'.
DNA molecule is the genetic code for every cell. And this
code is the determining factor in the behaviour of a living
molecule of DNA consists of three things namely :
One of four different Nitrogen compounds
with Genetic Engineering, an organism's genetic, or hereditary,
material is altered to eliminate undesirable characteristics
or to produce desirable new ones.
above does not answer the question whether Taweez really
work. The short answer is YES! They do work. How do they
work? To answer that, we need look at the Quran and Hadees.
of all, we are told in the Quran :
NUNAZ ZILU MIN AL QURANI MA HUWA SHIFAA UN WA RAHMATUL
LIL MOOMINEENA WA LA YA ZEEDUZ ZALIMEENA ILLA KHASARA(N)
We sent down in the Quran that which is a healing
and a mercy to those who believe: to the unjust it causes
nothing but loss after loss
: BANI ISRAEEL, CHAPTER 17]
scientists can perform genetic engineering and alter the
behavioural pattern, so can the Quran as proven above
from the Quran. If that is not enough then we can see
the DNA code mentioned in Hadees :
Allah, the true and truly inspired said, "(The matter
of the Creation of) a human being is put together in
the womb of the mother in
days, and then he becomes
a clot of thick blood for
a similar period, and then
a piece of flesh for a
similar period. Then Allah
sends an angel who is ordered to write four
things. He is ordered to
write down his (i.e. the new creature's) deeds, his
livelihood, his (date of) death, and whether he will
be blessed or wretched (in religion). Then the soul
is breathed into him. So, a man amongst you may do (good
deeds till there is only a cubit between him and Paradise
and then what has been written for him decides his behaviour
and he starts doing (evil) deeds characteristic of the
people of the (Hell) Fire. And similarly a man amongst
you may do (evil) deeds till there is only a cubit between
him and the (Hell) Fire, and then what has been written
for him decides his behaviour, and he starts doing deeds
characteristic of the people of Paradise."
in the above reference the period of 40 days is mentioned
three times. Then we are told that the angel is ordered
to write four things. Did we not find a similar description
for the DNA above? Remember that the DNA is yesterday's
discovery. The Quran and Hadees date back 14 centuries.
Hadees comes to mind in which Hadrat Aisha () the mother of the believers was asked to describe the qualities
and manners of Allah's Rasool :
Aisha () said: The quality and manner of Allah's Rasool were the
the above line there is secret being revealed.
secret is further clarified by Imam Ghazzali () who wrote in his Tahsin al

Allah Bless Imam Ghazzali () for leaving a treasure of literature for the Muslim community.
the above references it is clear that the human body is
in reality a Taweez itself. The human body is the Quran.
In other words, the human body is the 28 letters from
Alif() to Ya (). It keeps the spirit trapped
for the time that Allah has ordained for it with that
body. Only, at the expiry date is the spirit freed from
when some of the 'letters' in the human body become corrupted
by following Shaytan, a Taweez is used to put those 'letters'
back in their proper places. We are all quite ready to
believe in genetic engineering, but even after Allah tells
us in the Quran that the Quran is
a healing and mercy, some people will deny that
Taweez are part of Islam.
must only be used for healing and good. To answer the
question Do Taweez Really Work? Yes they do work.
long as there are people who are by Shaytan, there will
always be misuse of Taweez for evil. How do we destroy
evil Taweez or even black magic or even evil spells?
A TAWEEZ OR BLACK MAGIC
are numerous ways that a Taweez can be rendered useless.
The proper way to destroy a Taweez is to tear it into
four pieces. That is, tear it once vertically in the middle.
Then tear the two pieces horizontally so that it becomes
four pieces. Read Allahu Samad 101
times on the torn pieces and dispose the 4 pieces
in flowing water, such as a river. This will destroy the
Taweez and its effects completely, Insha Allah.
anyone suspects that they are under the influence of 'black
magic', or an evil spell then they can follow the following
guidelines to overcome the influence and effects:

and His Companions
or 'Taweez' with verses from the Qur'an
: Some people wear a
charm or 'taweez' which contains some verses from the
Qur'an, assuming that it protects them from other peoples'
evil eyes and the designs of wicked people and devils.
Some people attach charms to their children, newly constructed
houses, cars and animals. Yet others believe it would
improve their vocation and enrich them. What does Islam
say to this practice?
: It does not need a scholar to define for
us the purpose of the revelation of the Qur'an. Anyone
who knows anything about Islam will tell you that the
Qur'an is a book which provides guidance for mankind so
that they may follow Allah's instructions and build a
happy human life. It is implicit in this definition that
the Qur'an is meant for implementation. Allah has not
sent down the Archangel Gabriel with His message, the
Qur'an, so that Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him),
His last messenger, should convey it or recite it in melodious
voice to enchant his audience, or to make of it a charm
to wear in the hope of accomplishing a particular purpose.
If we use Qur'anic verses in such a way, we are guilty
of degrading Allah's words. The thought behind using Qur'anic
verses in charms for the purpose to which the question
has referred to comes simply from the fact that people
do believe that verses are Allah's words. Since Allah
is able to accomplish any purpose He likes, then His words,
- as people mistakenly think - must have a secret power
of their own. That is a twisted argument. It is not the
word used in a verse, or the verse itself, which has a
secret of its own. The Qur'an consists of words which
we use everyday in our own language. The fact that these
words occur in the Qur'an does not impart to them any
special secret or power. The Qur'an brings out its power
and its goodness when it is implemented in practical life.
It is then and only then that people realize how much
happier they become as a result of implementation of Allah's
law. The words themselves and the ink with which they
are written are not different from any other words or
ink. The Qur'an provides for us a code of practice. If
we follow that code and implement it, we lead a happy
life because that is the purpose of Allah's code. Moreover,
we earn reward from Allah for carrying out His orders.
If we turn away from such an implementation, reducing
the Qur'an to a mere book through which we seek to have
some blessings or the accomplishment of particular purposes,
then we displease Allah and achieve nothing. I can tell
my readers in the clearest of ways that wearing a charm
does not achieve the purpose for which it is worn. It
does not matter what is written in it; wearing it is a
sin for which the wearer must repent and seek Allah's
forgiveness. Moreover, it is sure that the purpose for
which it is worn will not be achieved. That is due to
the fact that the Prophet has made a supplication to that
effect. He says: "May Allah not accomplish the purpose
of a person who wears a charm." (Related by Ahmad). The
Prophet is also quoted as saying: "He who wears a charm
is guilty of associating partners with Allah." We know
for certain that Allah answers every prayer or supplication
that the Prophet has made in the clearest and widest of
fashion. Hence, the surest way of not getting what one
aims for is to wear a charm for its accomplishment. In
some charms and amulets, Qur'anic verses are written.
Some of those who write such amulets and charms ask the
people to whom they give one to soak it in water until
the ink (or saffron) has dissolved and then to drink it.
That does not give him any blessing. It may give him a
stomachache. The Qur'an may be used in order to bring
about a good effect. Allah describes the Qur'an as "a
cure for that which is in people's breasts." It is permissible
to read the Qur'an and then make a supplication to Allah
for any good purpose, whether it relates to the hereafter
or to this life. Allah answers prayers at all times, but
a prayer said after an act of worship, such as the recitation
of the Qur'an, is more likely to be answered. Why should
one need to use a charm when he can use Allah's power
and the Qur'an, His words, in the manner approved by Him.
