Q44 - Is taweez halal?

Question # 044

Is taweez halal?

In the Name of Allaah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salaamu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullaahi wa-barakaatuh.

May Allah (swt) reward you for your concern. Ta`wiz means to seek protection. Thus to wear a ta`wiz with Quranic ayahs, or duaas (supplications) obtained through correct narrations (ahaadeeth), provided it does not have aspects of shirk, then it would be permissible.

It is important to remember the ta`wiz is not the muathir haqeeqi (is not effective in itself). If the ta`wiz contains aspects of shirk or kufr (ascribing partners with Allah or disbelief), it would be haraam. Please refer to the following:

And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best
