This book is the first book in English language dedicated to the subject of the taweez (amulet) and its definition, history and rulings according to the Qur'an and authentic Sunnah.
The taweez is closely connected to tawakkul because it requires its wearer to place their trust, reliance and hope in it (whatever form it may take), instead of Allah. For this reason, when the Prophet was commissioned with Prophethood, Allah commanded him to warn and prohibit the people from using such things. Nevertheless we find many Muslims throughout the world hanging taweez on themselves their children, animals, home, and cars for the attainment of blessings and protection from harm.
This book aims to present to the reader the reality about the taweez and some of what has been related in the book (Qur'an) and the sunnah about this subject so that perhaps it may benefit the one with an open mind and sincere desire, to worship Allaah doing what pleases him.
