Cure for evil eye

Q:

Should one whose been jealous or envied someone and noticed bad things happening to the one they’ve been jealous of a day after or a few weeks after, wash themselves and apply the water on the one they’ve envied, even if it’s a girl he has envied and he is male and even if they are not sure their jealousy caused the bad things for the person.

Also, What if a few months has passed and good things have been happening to the one they’ve envied, should a cure still be provided and can the envied still die as a result of evil eye.

Also if one has envied or been jealous of someone, should he still try and provide a cure if the one he envied hasn’t had anything bad happen to them yet but it’s only been one day since they envied them but he regrets doing it.

A:

In the Name of Allah, the All-Merciful, the Mercy-Giving,

Peace and blessings be upon His noble Prophet Muhammad.

Envy is an evil passion and disease. It kindles within the envier’s heart like a burning coal. Therefore, the Quran enjoins us to seek refuge with Allah “from the evil of an envier when he envies.” (Quran 113:5)

Envy and evil eye have real effects and may cause harm to the envied person. The Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings be upon him) is reported to have said that “The [evil] eye may send man to the grave.” [Sahih al-Jami`] He also said, “The [influence of an evil] eye is real. If anything would precede the qadar (divine preordainment), it would be the [influence of an evil] eye. Thus, when you are asked to take bath [as a cure] from the influence of an evil eye, you should take bath.” [Muslim]

The last part of the hadith prescribes what should be done when the envied person is affected by envy or an evil eye and we have come to know the envier. This is a kind of remedy to be used when needed to remove the evil effect of envy. If there is no evil effect, there is no need for the remedy.

Almighty Allah knows best.
