A very good friend of mine gifted me a keychain about 2-3 years ago... It's colorful and glittery and very ethnic looking.... It looks like a piece of jewelry, with three sections to it - so I hung it in my daughter's room from her mirror. It's been there since. Well, yesterday, my daughter pulled it down and was playing with it - all of a sudden something weird caught my eye... Rolled inside one of the sections is something that doesn't belong in there. It's a tiny figure, very crudely made, and it looks like it's stuffed with something. It's not my imagination, I showed it to someone else, and she immediately retracted saying it looks like a face.

I have no idea what to do with it now. I don't want to throw it out, because that's not the best way to get rid of my doubt or my fear. Im not a superstitious person, but I do believe in back magic. I couldn't sleep last night, just kept making Duaa, and trying not to let weird thoughts enter my mind.

Is there a recommended practice in Islam for such situations?

Is it those necklaces that have quran verses rolled up in them? Some people use them for "protection" against evil eye for their babies?

Or is it like something else?

Could you take it to a imam or alim or someone who knows about these things?

I wouldn't know how to go about throwing out something like that either.
