THE PROHIBITION OF WEARING AMULETS AS IT LEADS TO SHIRK.
TEAR THEM OFF NOW.
1. It was narrated from ‘Uqbah ibn ‘Aamir al-Juhanee (radiya Allaahu ‘anhu) that a group came to the Messenger of Allaah (Sallallahu Alyhi Wasalam) [to swear their allegiance (bay’ah) to him]. He accepted the bay’ah of nine of them but not of one of them. They said, “O Messenger of Allaah, you accepted the bay’ah of nine but not of this one.” He said, “He is wearing an amulet.” The man put his hand (in his shirt) and took it off, then he (the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him)) accepted his bay’ah. He said, ‘Whoever wears an amulet has committed shirk.”[Reported by Ahmed: 4/156 with an authentic chain, and al-Haakim: 4/219 and it has been authenticated by ash-Shaykh al-Albaanee (rahimahullaah) in as-Saheehah, no. 492 and made Hasan by ash-Shaykh Muqbil in al-Jaami’ as-Saheeh: 6/294.]
2.‘Abbaad ibn Tameem narrated from Abaa Basheer al-Ansaaree (radiyAllaahu ‘anhu) who informed him that he was in the company of the Messenger of Allaah (Sallallahu Alyhi Wasalam) on some of his journeys. He (Aboo Basheer) said: The Messenger of Allaah ( Sallallahu Alyhi Wasalam) sent a
messenger ordering: ((There shall not remain any necklace of string or any other kind of necklace round the necks of camels except it is cut off)).
3.Ruwayfa’ ibn Thaabit (radiyAllaahu ‘anhu) narrated that the Messenger of Allaah ( Sallallahu Alyhi Wasalam) said: ((Oh Ruwayfa’, perhaps you will live long after me so inform the people that whoever ties a knot in his beard or wears a string necklace or cleans his private parts with the excrement of animals bones, then verily Muhammad is free from him))[Reported by an-Nisaa’ee in az-Zeenah, chapter (12) 8/135-136, no. 5067 with an authentic chain, and Ahmed: 4/108 and 109, and Aboo Daawud, no. 36, and authenticated by our Shaykh al-Albaanee in al-Mishkaat, no. 351 and Saheeh Al Jaami’, no. 7910.]
4.Narrated ‘Abdullaah ibn Mas’ood (radiyAllaahu ‘anhu) who said that the Messenger of Allaah
( Sallallahu Alyhi Wasalam) said: ((Verily incantations/Spells [ar-Ruqaa], amulets [at-Tamaa’im] and bewitchment/love-charms [at-Tiwalah1 ] are shirk)).I said, “Why do you say this? By Allaah, my eye was weeping with a discharge and I kept going to So and so, the Jew, who did a spell for me. When he did the spell, it calmed down.” ‘Abd-Allaah said: “That was just the work of the Shaytaan who was picking it with his hand, and when (the Jew) uttered the spell, he stopped. All you needed to do was to say as the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) used to say: ‘Adhhib il-ba’s Rabb al-naas ishfi anta al-Shaafi laa shifaa’a illa shifaa’uka shifaa’an laa yughaadiru saqaman (Remove the harm, O Lord of mankind, and heal, You are the Healer. There is no healing but Your healing, a healing which leaves no disease behind.’”
5. Imran Bin Hussain (radiyAllaahu ‘anhu) narrated that that the Messenger of Allaah ( Sallallahu Alyhi Wasalam) saw a man wearing a brass bracelet on his arm and he said to him “WOE TO U WAT IS THIS ?”HE replied” TO protect me from weakness .THE PROPHET PBUH said Indeed this only increases ur weakness.Throw it away for if u die wearing it u will never attain success.Imran bin Husayn (ra), reported that Rasoolullah (saws) saw a man with a brass bracelet on his (upper) arm. He said; “what is this?” The man replied “it is for protection again waahinah (a disease of the upper arm and shoulder). He (saws) said, “Take it off, it will only increase your weakness, for if you died while it was on you, you would never have success.”[Reported by Ibn Majah no. 3531 and Ahmad 4:445]
