Question: Assalam Alaikum, I fear I have been afflicted with black magic and the evil eye because the disease in my eyes isn’t healing even after medical attention. What should I do that will, uplift this affliction on me?
Answer: Wa ‘alaykum assalam wa rahmatullah wa barakatuh
I pray you are well.
Always remember that All matters are in Allah’s hands. He is very loving and kind, and whatever happens to you will ultimately be for your benefit. Perhaps this is a means for you to draw closer to Him through du’a, desperation, and need. Express all of these to Him in your worship.
For your fears of Black Magic and the Evil eye, you should unfailingly stick to reciting the du’as for protection found in the sunna. There is an excellent compilation of them in Imam Nawawi’s Book of Remembrances in the section of the supplications of the morning and evening.
Amongst them is reciting the last three suras thrice morning and evening. Doing so will prevent any harm from coming to you (Bukhari).
There is a Cure to Every Illness
Keep seeking a cure for your illness. The Messenger of Allah, Allah bless him and grant him peace, said, ”Allah has not sent down any illness except that He has sent down for it a complete cure” (Bukhari).
Don’t lose hope. Keep asking Allah for protection from those who wish to harm you. If you have a raqi (a righteous Muslim exorcist) then go and consult with him.
May Allah grant you a swift end to your difficulties.
