So you don’t like a person because he/she possesses some thing you imagine to be good that you don’t have? You feel ‘sick’ whenever you see him/her; hear people talking about him/her or even when you think of him/her while you are alone. This is because he/she is smarter or wealthier or more knowledgeable or intelligent or virtuous than you are. And you are not able to appreciate his/her unique talent or possession or popularity. And by your behavior you try to downgrade, avoid, or defame him/her, feel happy when he/she suffers a loss or is in a difficulty. But you hide this feeling inside yourself. Do you know that this condition is a sickness of soul and heart and it also harms your physical health is called as Envy, Destructive Jealousy (Hasad)? According to ibn Uthaymin, one of the strong signs that a person is inflicted with the disease of hasad is that he always tries to conceal the virtues and goodness of others. He does not like it when others talk about the good that a person has done. He remains silent and pretends like he does not know of the good that the other one has done. A true believer who is free of hasad likes it when good things are said about others and when the good deeds of others are appreciated and spoken about…He has no envy in his heart for what Allah has bestowed upon the others and, therefore, he spreads that good news to others.

Actions to take against the evil eye(hasad)
1. Use al-mu’awwidhatayn and Surah Ikhlaas with the right intention.
This means the two surah’s for seeking refuge, which are the last two chapters of the Quran: surah Al-Falaq and surah An-Naas. Recite Surah Al-Ikhlaas, Al-Falaq, and An-Naas three times in the morning and evening.
The Prophet said: ‘Qul Hoo wAllahu Ahad’ and ‘Muwaidaitain’ when you enter the evening and when you wake up in the morning three times and it will protect you from everything.(Tirmidhee # 3575), Aby Daud (# 5084).
Make this a habit and you will gain protection and the great reward of reviving a sunnah, in shaa Allah!

2. Say a’oodhu bi kalimaatillaahit-taammaati min sharri maa khalaq.

  1. The Prophet said: Whosoever says at nightfall: أعوذ بكلمات الله التامات من شر ما خلق-I seek refuge in the complete words of Allah from the evil in what He has created- no harm shall affect him [Muslim] This is only takes ten seconds, key is you really make it part of your evening routine!

    3. Protect the children.
    Even though we do everything for our children’s education and future, children can also be affected by the evil eye and we should protect them according to the sunnah! The Prophet used to seek refuge for al-Hasan and al-Husayn and say:
    أُعِيذُكُمَا بِكَلِمَاتِ اللهِ التَّامَّةِ مِنْ كُلِّ شَيْطَانٍ ، وَهَامَّةٍ ، وَمِنْ كُلِّ عَيْنٍ لَامَّةٍ – I seek refuge for you both in the perfect words of Allah, from every devil and every poisonous reptile, and from every evil eye [At-Tirmidhee, Abu Dawood] Above is for two children; you can replace u’eedhukumaa’ (I seek refuge for you both) by u’eedhuka (for one boy), u’eedhuki (for one girl) or u’eedhukum (for more than three children). Memorize this supplication and use it on the children consistently. Use a sticky note in the house to remember if needed.

    4. Pray for blessings.
    Although it is correct that the evil eye comes from people who feel jealous (hasad) the scholars explained it can also come from someone who is not jealous but just likes something. The Prophet said: Whoever among you sees something in himself or in his possessions or in his brother that he likes, let him pray for blessing for it, because the evil eye is real [ Ibn al-Sunni , al-Haakim] It is even possible to harm yourself, your wealth or a loved one. It is recommended to say: Allahumma baarik feehu, feeha or feehi ( O Allah, bless him, her or it) or the like.
    So next time you see something nice someone has, or even seeing the beauty of your children or spouse, pray for blessings for them. This also means it is ok to like something someone has and want it for yourself; as long as you don’t wish that thing is taken away from the person and you make sure you pray for blessings for them!👇👇👇

  2. 5. Stay Firm in Your Belief in the Qadr (Predestination)
    Related by At-Tirmidhi and Abu Dawood, the Prophet (saw) said: “Verily, the first thing Allah created was the pen. He said to it: ‘Write.’ It replied: ‘My Lord, what should I write?’ So He said: ‘Write all that will occur.’ So in that hour, everything that will occur until the Day of Recompense was recorded.” This pen was created, and destiny was written, 50,000 years before the Heavens and the Earth were even created. The magnitude of this cannot be exaggerated. Do we realise what this means for ourselves? Not only did Allah (swt) write the destiny of the first Prophet (Adam AS) to the last Prophet (Muhammad pbuh) and every Prophet who came between them in the Preserved Tablet, but He also wrote about me and you. Before the existence of the Heavens and the Earth, the All-Knowing had already established who your husband would be, and it was at this time that He decreed exactly what your provision would be and where it would come from. If the Lord of the Worlds has already decreed this, what have you to fear? Tie your camel, do your bit, but ultimately trust Allah and know that as your Creator He wants what’s best for you. He has more love for you than your own mother and if He puts you through hardship, He’ll see you through to the other side insha Allah. Try to be content with Allah’s Qadr and praise Him always, because it might be that in keeping something from you Allah is protecting you from harm. It may be that your patience in the face of this absence is your ticket to Jannah. Perhaps without this patience and without this trial, you would have failed to reach your rightful station in Paradise.
    In all of this, ultimately you must trust Allah, the All-Knowing:
    “But perhaps you hate a thing and it is good for you; and perhaps you love a thing and it is bad for you. And Allah Knows, while you know not.” (2:216)
    Don’t fall into the trap of challenging Allah’s knowledge and will. The more you learn about His mercy and love for you, the easier it will be for you to become content with His Qadr.
