Assalam,

I have an infant daughter and my mother in law bought her a bracelet that has the evil eye on it. The evil eye is supposed to "protect" whoever wears it from people jinxing them I think. My mother in law keeps insisting that I put on the bracelet whenever I take my daughter out.

I could have sworn that this is haram. Isn't it haram to believe in superstition?  Also, the bracelet is not going to protect her from people saying bad things about my daughter?? Is there somewhere in the Quaran that says wearing the evil eye is haram?

thank you

wsalam,

If one believes that the *object* is the thing that is protecting your daughter then I think it would be considered a form of shirk. Just explain this politely to your mother-in-law and maybe ask her if she has any other jewelery or something cute that you could put on her instead.

A good book might be Abu Ameenah Bilal Phillips Fundamentals of Tawheed, I think I recall a section on amulets and such.

The Fundamentals of Tawheed: by Dr. Abu Ameenah Bilal Philips

BTW evil eye does exist though so you could find out how to avert evil eye as much as possible from your daughter without the use of charms.
