The evil eye may be given by the kaafirs


Can the disbelievers give you evil eye?


Praise be to Allah.

Praise be to Allaah.

Yes, the evil eye may be given by a kaafir. The evidence for that is the aayah (interpretation of the meaning):

 “And verily, those who disbelieve would almost make you slip with their eyes (through hatred) when they hear the Reminder (the Qur’aan)…”

[al-Qalam 68:51]

 Al-Saddi said: “[This means] they would harm you with their eyes (evil eye).” Tafseer al-Baghawi, 8/202.

 This is also indicated by the general meaning of the words of the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him): “The (evil) eye is real.” Narrated by al-Bukhaari, 5740; Muslim, 2187.
