Writing Taweez outside the Musjid

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: If the Imaam of a musjid writes taweezes and gives people taweezes , then is his salaah valid and is the salaah of those who perform salaah behind him valid?



A: If the Imaam’s actions and conduct conforms to Shari’ah and the taweez he writes out does not contain anything impermissible in Shari’ah, then it is permissible that he be appointed as an Imaam. As a precaution, he should write the taweezes and give it to people outside the musjid.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
