Similar to other cultures in the world, one of the most significant parts of Islamic traditions is believing in talisman and the power that they may have. Talisman is an amulet or charm worn to get something desirable like good luck, happiness, fertility or to prevent evil.
Talismans, also known as taweez or Selum, are charms inscribed with verses from Quran by mystic Muslims. But what are taweez and how are they used in Islam? There are many verses in Quran that mention talisman, amulet entities. Most Quranic experts recommend not purchasing talismans from non-traditional handmade stores, fairs, and less popular social media platforms.Some Muslims dispose of their amulets when their purpose is fulfilled, because there is no harm in letting go. When the purpose abides for a long time then there is almost no justification behind taking them off. Check out this site taweez in Quran for more info.
In Holy Quran verses 2:57 and 2:91 mention that there is “no activity (either good or bad) will be done on earth without Him knowing it” and verse 10:3 mentions that nothing was in the heavens, nor on earth escapes His Knowledge. It has been established by Quranic ayat that our deeds can either benefit ourselves or people around us.Therefore if Muslims use taweez for any occult practices for their own purpose, then the one who recites this talisman is sinning against Allah’s blessings.The Quran denotes the use of talismans in the context of the words “Their garments will not wear out, nor will their feet lag.”
According to some scholars, some amulets are explicitly permissible by Quran. Further, Quran 3:98 mentions a “totem” as an example of what is halal (permissible). These scholars also talks about how talismans are often used in Sufi practice as mystical doorways to other dimensions.
Even though Quran is Muslim’s holy book, it possess the knowledge where talismans could be found.It is widely believed that dua written on the silk hangings placed in noble houses and on buildings gives protection from natural disasters and other dangers.Talismans-taweez can be found inserted either into clothes or pen caps and they can be give out at mosques or shrines.
A Hadith narrated by Abdullah Ibn Omar stated that Prophet was once asked about the taweez that al-Ansari had carried around his neck before entering into battle, which made him invulnerable to all their attacks.”,
Quran provides many benefits like key to well-being in this world and the next world. Talisman from Quran protect from evil in all its form and help protect Islam from its opposition.If an amulet is worn during sleep, then it will grant a good night’s rest without nightmares or without walking in one’s sleep.These talismans are also used for other goals such as future telling and beauty enhancement.Bringing rain is another belief, where people even give up drinking water just to wear it and see the results soon after -which did not happen according to some people or interviews.
Some other Quranic phrases are also considered as in form of protection and are by themselves a taweez in Quran. They include verses from surah al-Falaq, al-Nas which provides its readers with words of prophecy against the disbelievers, an-Nasr, al-Ikhlas, al-Falaq for wishing success for children’s education…etc.Originally, Quranic verses made up half of these formulas but later they developed into wholly separate formulas including prayers, incantations and other mystic words designed to induce protective blessings.
Black magic (Surah Al-Falaq) is spoken of in the Quran and Islam readily acknowledges the existence of evil powers. One has to be able to identify them, says Mohammad Fayaz from the Department of Developing Civilisation at King Saud University. “Sufis and scholars use talismans as an amulet for protection against black magic.”
