Assalamualaikum! What is the status of Taweez (amulet) in ShariĄŻah? Wearing Taweez is considered Shirk (association with Allah)? Please tell me comprehensively which kinds of Taweez can we use in the limit of ShariĄŻa

The answer to your question is as follows

Treating oneself with Taweez which contains verses of the QurĄŻan is similar to treating oneself with medication.

Once, one of the companions of the Prophet (saws) recited Suratul Fatiha and gathered his saliva and spitted it at the snake-bite of a chief of a clan. The patient got cured and his people presented a sheep to the companions of the Prophet (saws), when they asked the Prophet (saws) about it, he smiled and said, ĄŽHow do you know that the Suratul Fatiha is a Ruqiya (cure)? Take it and assign a share for me.ĄŻ (Bukhari, 71/7, Hadith 632)

One thing must be kept in mind that no one must ascribe (in his method and application) partners with Allah (swt) while making, writing or giving Taweez. Any act of Kufr or Shirk is unacceptable in the practice. Wearing only Taweez is not Shirk if it does not contain association with Allah and it is permissible too.

I must advise you to remain away from fake Babas who are not practicing Muslims and if necessary ask for Taweez from pious people or Ulama.

May Allah guide us and keep us away from any evil footstep. Ameen.
