‘If you see something from your brother, yourself or wealth which you find impressing, then invoke blessings for it, for the evil eye is indeed true’.
The Evil Eye: To look at something and be impressed with it, causing harm to befall it. This “looking” may or may not involve jealousy, and can occur unintentionally, indeed be part of a person’s nature! A person can even inflict harm on himself.
From the supplications for the protection against the Evil Eye:
اللّهُـمَّ بارِك عَلَـيه.
Allahumma barik AAalayh.
‘O Allah, send blessing upon him.’
ما شاءَ الله، لا قُوَّةَ إلاّ بالله.
Ma shaal-lah, la quwwata illa billah.
‘(this is) that which Allah has willed, there is no power except with Allah.’
