Change of place bring good luck, for example this house is not good if it is changed it will bring fortune.


Praise be to Allah.

Moving house does not bring good luck or more provision. But if a person lives in a house and some harm comes to him there, then he can move to another house. 

Shaykh Ibn ‘Uthaymeen (may Allaah have mercy on him) was asked: 

A person lived in a house and he suffered a lot of sickness and other calamities, which made him and his family feel that there is something bad about the house. Is it permissible for him to leave for this reason? 

He answered: 

It may be that there is something bad about some houses, vehicles or wives, and Allaah in His wisdom causes a person to suffer some harm or to miss out on some benefit when he is with them. On that basis there is nothing wrong with selling that house and moving to another. Perhaps Allaah will cause good things to happen in the place to which he moves. 

It was narrated that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “(If there are any) bad omens, (then they) are in three things: houses, women and horses.” This was narrated by al-Bukhaari (5093) and Muslim (2225). There may be something bad about some vehicles or some wives or some houses. If a person sees that he should realize that it is by the will and decree of Allaah, and that Allaah in His wisdom has decreed that so that the person will move to another place. And Allaah knows best. 

Fataawa ‘Ulama’ al-Balad al-Haraam, p. 1212. 

And Allaah knows best.
