Wearing a taweez

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: I wanted to ask whether its permissible to wear a taweez (on arms) as I have my driving test next week. I know that wearing taweez is bid’ah and a form of shirk. But I’m not too sure of wearing the ones which you can wear when we have exams etc. I just want to ask before I commit shirk whilst doing my test.


A: It is permissible as long as the wordings are correct.

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