Envy and Evil Eye In the Light of the Prophetic Sunnah

Dr. Al-Sayyid Muhammad Al-Sayyid Nouh (Principal Researcher)

Dr. Waleed Muhammad Al-Kandary (Associate Researcher)

 

This study has revealed the following conclusions:

  1. The meaning of envy and that of evil eye are overlapping. Each of the two wider than the other in one aspect, and narrower in another. For example, in regard to motives, both are applicable when the motive is hatred or feeling displeased to see others having graces and desiring them to be removed away. Evil eye alone is applied to cases of admiration and appreciation. In regard to the efforts to remove others’ graces, the two evils are applicable in case of using means such as sight or inclining by soul, favcy or imagination. Every alone is applicable in case of using other means such as contact, touching, slander, invocations, spells or charms.
  2. Envy and evil eye are both confirmed by Sharia texts and by reason, but their effect is from Allah (The Great and Almighty). Hence, we should feat no one except Allah, and we should resort to or pray Him alone for protection from the harm of the envious or evil-eyed.
  3. Envy is of two kind: Praised and dispraised according to the conditions of both the envious and of the envied. No punishment for those whose envy in only in their hearts without any efforts to actualize it.
  4. Envy does not exist out of nothing, but it has its reasons and motives at one’s self or at the others. Also, it has its effects that could be individual or social, and could transcend this life to the Hereafter.
  5. It is not legal to accuse anybody of being envious or evil-eyed lest doubts, distrust and consequently disunity and dissension should prevail among people, a condition that facilitates the intrusion and domination of enemies over the Muslim Ummah. Such accusation must be based upon definite and sure evidences, which is almost out of reach.
  6. There are many methods and means for prevention from and for treating envy. Some of them were mentioned only in Sunnah of the Prophet (PBUH) and some in both Al-Quran and Al-Sunnah. Those discovered through experience are also permitted as long as they are not contradicting with Al-Quran or Al-Sunnah.
