Islam/Amal w Ain - Evil Eye, Curse or Hex?


Salam Alaikum Ahmer,

I think I might have a curse on me or maybe a lot of evil eye?

There is this scary boy with me in university and he is a psychopath. He is trying to force me to be in a relationship with him, and I don't even know him or even like him.

A week ago we had a big fight because he was scaring me a lot. He got very angry, and I remember feeling terrified. He told me he would make a lot of problems for me, and other such threats.

My friend, who was present at the fight, told me to ignore him and it was just an empty threat.

But something started to happen to me. At first I just felt very depressed and upset and scared, usually to leave for university or the house sometimes, because I was scared I might see him. Then I sort of got over it a little bit, telling myself who cares if he sees me somewhere and tries to do something - God can protect me and He will.

But then a few days back I noticed my hair had become considerably thin. It was falling a lot, and my eye-lashes too.

Now I don't know if this is curse or hex related, or just wes-was elkhanas and therefore psychologically related?

I haven't told my mom or my dad about the boy because there will be nothing they can do (especially since he comes from an important family) and I feel like they will blame me in a way.

However, I did tell my mom I'm worried I might have the evil eye on me or if I could be cursed (but when I said cursed she started asking too many questions that made me feel scared).

I'm afraid if we go to the Sheikh would he reveal those details in front of my mother? I don't want her to know. Would the sheikh be able to know who cursed me or put their on me?

Or could it not be that?

We were on holiday, coming back to Bahrain on the 5th of this month. We were in Bangkok for two weeks there. Their water is very pure and fresh, not like the water here. We could shower every day there, and we didn't need to use things like shampoos or soaps often. After coming back my mom and my sister both said their hair was falling a lot, but I don't know if it's as much as mine because mashallah I used to have very thick hair and it's also my eye-lashes that are slowly falling.

When we were in bangkok people always saw my hair and kept telling me things like it's so beautiful and pretty. I would always read the mowawedhat on myself, before we go out, while we go out (especially after comments like this) and at night as well. Could it be a'ain from them?

Elhamdulalah I pray on time as much as I can, and I strive to be as close to my faith as possible. Shouldn't I be safe or protected from these things? Or wouldn't my prayer and other actions help break those things?

I'm very scared and I don't know who to talk to or what to do.

My questions are:

1) If I go to a Sheikh will he reveal all details of my personal life? I don't want my mom to know about that psychopath boy because I don't want my parents to have any shaak in me, even if I have nothing to do with the matter (But you know how parents can think and worry.)
b) If the Sheikh can do that, could I tell him not to reveal personal details about my life in front of my mother?

2) How can I tell if this is aain or amal or wes-was elkhanas & psychological or if this might just be something normal and genetic? Today I will be going for a blood test to see if it might be some new development in my body, and Inshallah it is not ain or any of those things and therefore it's something I can cure.

3) As I pray often, always read the mowawedhat, and I really do feel and believe that God protects me always, then wouldn't I be safe from these magical things because of that?
b) If not, what can I do to help break or prevent that? Inshallah when I finish my period I'll go swim in the sea and read the mowawedhat on myself as I rub my body in the salt water. I also have started (Since yesterday) to play suraat al-baqara and really try to listen to the Sheikh as he recites the verses (I feel relaxed and safe, though Inshallah that is more spiritual and psycological and not a sign that I'm breaking the curse).

Thank you so much Ahmer.

I hope you can help me or refer me to someone I can speak to on these matters.

I feel very scared and I'd like some information to clarify things, and stop myself from worrying so much.

Shokran - peace and blessings on to you

Bismillahir-Rahmanir-Rahim (In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful)

The other replied, 'He has been bewitched" The first asked, 'Who has bewitched him?' The other replied, 'Lubaid bin Al-A'sam.' The first one asked, 'What material has he used?' The other replied, 'A comb, the hair gathered on it, and the outer skin of the pollen of the male date-palm.' The first asked, 'Where is that?' The other replied, 'It is in the well of Dharwan.' " So, the Prophet went out towards the well and then returned and said to me on his return, "Its date-palms (the date-palms near the well) are like the heads of the devils." I asked, "Did you take out those things with which the magic was worked?" He said, "No, for I have been cured by Allah and I am afraid that this action may spread evil amongst the people." Later on the well was filled up with earth.

Recite the two bright ones, Al-Baqara and Surah Al-'Imran, for on the Day of Resurrection they will come as two clouds or two shades, or two flocks of birds in ranks, pleading for those who recite them. Recite Surah al-Baqara, for to take recourse to it is a blessing and to give it up is a cause of grief, and the magicians cannot confront it.
