The Books Al-Hisn Al-Hasin, Hirz Al-Jawshan and the like
Question:

Regarding incantations and talismans, if they are from the Qurżan, what is the ruling on them? And what is the ruling if I were to carry with me the book Al-Hisn Al-Hasin or the book Hirz Al Jawshan or As-Sabażul-żUqud As-Sulaymaniyah? And is it true, as these books claim, that they are useful in protecting against the evil eye and envy etc.? They say that they contain nothing but Qur'anic Verses, such as Al-Mu'awwithatain [1] and Ayat Al-Kursi, so would it be beneficial simply to recite them, without carrying them?
Answer:

Incantations from the Qur'an and remembrance of Allaah are permitted, as is every incantation that does not contain Shirk [2] or any kind of sinful supplication. As for writing talismans and using them for protection, we have already given a clear verdict on this. And as for the books Al-Hisn Al-Hasin, Hirz Al-Jawshan and As-Sabaul-Uqud, their use for protection is not allowed. However, regarding the recitation of Ayat Al-Kursi before sleeping, it is beneficial, as is the recitation of żSay: He is Allaah, Oneż [3] and Al-Mu'awwithatain.

[1] Al-Mu'awwithatain: Surah Al-Falaq and Surah An-Nas [2] Shirk: Associating partners with Allaah [3] Surah Al-Ikhlas
