بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

We begin with Allah’s blessed name, we praise him and we glorify him, seek his forgiveness and ask him to guide us. Whoever Allah guides, None can lead astray and whoever he misguides, None can guide. There is no power and no strength except from Allah, The most high, the Most great, the most powerful. We bear witness that there is no one worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers. We pray for peace and blessings on all the noble messengers and in particular on the last of them all “the blessed prophet Mohammad (pbuh)”

Narrated by Abdullah ibn Abbas Allah's Messenger (saws) said: 'The influence of 'nazar' (evil eye) is a fact; if anything would precede the 'Qadr' (destiny) it would be the influence of an evil eye.' Sahih Muslim [5427]

From the above guidance of our beloved prophet Mohammad (pbuh), effect of "nazar" evil eye is a fact, but we should also understand that 'evil eye' does not possess any power by itself, nor can it harm or hurt anyone without will of Allah. So we should not fear 'evil eye', instead we should fear Allah, & should seek his protection from anything and everything that may cause any type of harm.

Narrated by Abu Sa'id al-Khudri Allah's Messenger (saws) used to seek refuge in Allah from the Jinn and the 'evil eye' in men till the Mu'awwidhatan (113th Surah Al-Falaq and 114th Surah An-Naas) were revealed, after which he made use of them and abandoned everything else. Al-Tirmidhi [4563]

Thus if any believer fear any type of harm, he should recite 113th Surah Al-Falaq and 114th Surah An-Naas, and thus seek the refuge with Allah from any and all evil ever approaching them; And Allah alone knows the best.

I ask Allah to make this a sincere effort, seeking his pleasure, and I ask him to grant us refuge in him from the evils within ourselves, and that in our deeds. I ask him to grant us success in achieving whatever pleases him; And May Allah Shower His blessings and mercy upon our beloved Prophet Muhammad (pbuh), his family and his Companions and on all those who follow him until the final hour.
