Sufi Perspectives on Taweez: Examining the Debate
The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “Whoever wears a Taweez, let him seek refuge with Allaah from Satan the rejected.” Narrated by al-Bukhaari, 2/604; Muslim, 4/2078.
According to a group of scholars, it is permitted for people to hang up amulets which only contain words from the Qur’aan or names and attributes of Allaah, as long as they do not include anything which is forbidden. This was the view of Hudhayfah, ‘Uqbah ibn ‘Aamir, Ibn ‘Akeem and some of the companions of the Salaf.
However, another group of scholars said that hanging up amulets which only contain Qur’aan and saheeh ahaadeeth is not permissible. This was the view of Ibn ‘Abbaas, Ibn Mas’ood and Ibn ‘Akeem, as well as a number of the Taabi’een.
