In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful.
All praise and thanks are due to Allah, and peace and blessings be upon His Messenger.
Thank you for your good question.
A Muslim is not allowed to seek protection through anything other than the Quran and the Sunnah. A Muslim may read some Quranic verses or surahs—such as the last two surahs of the Quran and ayat Al-Kursi—for protection. There are, also, some duaas from the Sunnah for seeking protection from Allah Almighty. For example, a Muslim may read the following duaas three times every day and night:
“In the name of Allah with whose Name nothing is harmful on earth nor in the heavens and He is the All-Hearing, the All-Knowing”.
“I seek refuge in the perfect words of Allah from the evil of what He has created”.
A Muslim is not allowed, however, to wear or hang taweez (amulets) containing anything other than protective words and duaas from the Quran and the Sunnah.
Some scholars say that it is permissible to hang or wear amulets containing some Quranic surahs/verses or duaas from the Sunnah that are written in a good respectable way.
Muslims, moreover, may regularly read Quranic verses and surahs as well as Prophetic supplications that are recommended for protection against evils.
May Allah accept your and our good deeds, ameen.
Allah Almighty knows best.
