Wearing a taweez

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: I visited one aamil for my personal problem. He gave one small paper contain Arabic numbers in it and asked me to keep it under a heavy stone. Also he gave asmaaul husna to recite for 21 days. Is it taweez? Is it permissible in Islam?


A: It is permissible for one to use or wear a taweez provided the contents are permissible, the belief of the person wearing the taweez is correct, the purpose for which the taweez is being worn is permissible and there is nothing impermissible contained or associated with it.

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