Q: I would like to know the ruling on amulets (taweez) whether it’s permissible in Islam. If it’s not then can you please explain why.
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.
