Reality of Amulets / Taweez / Talsiman

Posted on: July 21, 2012


The word talisman comes from the Arabic word, tilsam which itself comes from the Greek word telos which means to consecrate or to initiate into the mysteries. A talisman can be defined as, “An object that has apparently magical or miraculous effects and that can avert misfortune and bring good fortune when acquired”.


According to Dr. J. Knappert, the word ‘amulet’ was originally derived from the Greek word ‘amylon’ meaning ‘food’, which were offered at places where ‘spirits’ were thought to pass, in order to please them and avoid their harm. [An Encyclopaedia of Myth and Legend – African Mythology].

The word ‘amulet’ in the English language has been defined as: “An object, either natural or man-made, believed to be endowed with special powers to protect or bring good fortune… amulets are thought to derive power from their connection with natural forces, from religious associations, or from being made in a ritual manner at a favorable time.” [The New Encyclopaedia Britannica (15th Edition 1991)]


The word taweez is an Urdu rendering of the Arabic word ‘ta’weedh’ which is another word used for tameemah. A tameemah can be defined as an object which is hung on someone or something with the belief that it has the power to repel harm or bring about good fortune. Therefore the words taweez and tameemah are often translated as amulet, charm or talisman.

The reality today is that most taweez which are sold to unaware victims contain things which no layman can decipher! These taweez contain numbers, grids, letters, diagrams, symbols, etc. which are all based on the practices of magicians and Cabbalists. In some cases, taweez have been found to contain supplications to other than ALLAH, such as Angels, Prophets and even Jinns! Not only is this ascribing partners to ALLAH – as none can answer supplications except HIM – but it also bears likeness to the taweez used by the Pre-Islamic Arabs and people of other religions who call upon ‘spirits’ to achieve their goals!


Here are few points which will expose the reality behind these taweez (either numeral or quranic verses) :

Every taweez has entities / jinn attached to it. They serve as slaves to that taweez. And in this way they possess you and can play with your psyche too.

These entities relieve you from a certain illness or problem for a while. For example, if you get scared at night, these jinns will deal with other jinns around you so that they should not bother you but they are allowed to live with you. You are also like a magnet for other entities if you are wearing any taweez. They are attached with you protecting you from smaller problems but in the longer run creating a bigger problem. Or maybe putting you in a lifetime of SHIRK.

After an appointed time they start troubling you themselves so that you would go back to the peer / healer (considering the fact that your previous problem was solved by the taweez given by the healer).

The most dangerous part is that there are cases in which a healer sends his jinns with the client to his house to make a truce, pact or deal with the jinns already residing there. The deal is to ask the previous jinns to leave the client alone for sometime, hence creating an illusion that the client is healed. Jinns from both parties (i.e jinns sent by a magician and jinns sent by a healer) reside with the client together. The client’s faith in the healer increases and he bestows the healer with gifts and money.After sometime the jinns are allowed to bother the client again, making the client run back to the healer. This process continues for a lifetime. This deal is only possible if the jinns possessed by the healer are stronger than the ones already present with the client in his house.Alternatively, if the healer’s jinns are not stronger than the ones already present, a fatal war begins. The war is so intense that the client can go into coma or in extreme situations die.Many people have been victims to this phenomenon. ALLAH forgive us!

People do argue that they took their family to a certain peer/ healer and he got healed or they took their infertile wife and after receiving the taweez they were blessed with a child. What they fail to realize is that cures are not possible without the will of ALLAH. It was already written that the wife would have a child one day, but the real test was which path will the couple adopt to seek the cure, the right path or the wrong path.

No misfortune can happen on Earth or in your souls but is recorded in a decree before WE bring it into existence: That is truly easy for ALLAH” [57:22]

“Your destiny is defined, but the path has yet to be chosen. It could be ALLAH’s path or Satan’s path.”

“Say: ‘Who can guard and protect you in the night or in the day from the (punishment of the) Most Gracious (ALLAH)?’ Nay, but they turn away from the remembrance of their Lord.” (Al-Anbiya’: 42)

The Qur’an was revealed to be recited and followed; its commandments to be obeyed and its prohibitions heeded, its information to be believed and its limits to be adhered to, its parables and stories to serve as lessons and not to be hanged on walls or around necks.

I would like to make clear all the visitors of my blog that I am not Rqaqi, Aamil, or Spiritual Healer. Any Raaqi you contact via my blog, know they do not represent this blog or me.


In my knowledge these are few dedicated places where you can get your spiritual healing according to Quran and Sunnah. I can recommend these places as in my knowledge they works according to Quran and Sunnah; but I cannot be made responsible either individually or severally for any untoward incidents.
