Jinn and the Evil Eye

Can jinn harm human beings and vice versa? And what effect does the jealous person have over the envied person?

Yes, jinn can harm man and vice versa, and yes, the envious eye can bring harm to its victim. This occurs and is well known. But all of this happens by the universal will of Allaah, not because of His legislative permission. Regarding the envious eye and its effects, it is confirmed that this happens in an authentic narration, the Prophet said, The eye is a reality, were there something that preceded the Decree, it would have been the eye. [1] And the Messenger of Allaah said, There is no Ruqya except for the eye or for the sting of a scorpion. [2] There are many Hadiths that further support this, and we ask Allaah Almighty to protect us and to make us firm upon the truth.

[1] Muslim no. 2186 [2] Al-Bukhari no. 5705 and Muslim 1450.
