The ill effect of the evil eye

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by HadithAnswers.com

I wanted to know the authenticity of this Hadith:

Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said:

“The evil eye is real and can bring a person down from a high mountain.”

 

Answer

Imam Ahmad and Imam Hakim (rahimahumallah) have recorded this Hadith on the authority of Sayyiduna ‘Abdullah ibn ‘Abbas (radiyallahu ‘anhuma).

(Musnad Ahmad, vol. 1 pg. 274 and pg. 294, Mustadrak Hakim, vol. 4 pg. 215)

 

Imam Hakim (rahimahullah) has declared the Hadith authentic and ‘Allamah Dhahabi concurs.

(Also see: Musnad Ahmad, vol. 5 pg. 146)

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
