Commentary Of These 2 Verses By Ibn Kathir
And verily, those who disbelieve would almost make you slip with their eyes, (through hatred) when they hear the Reminder (the Qur’an),
Ibn `Abbas, Mujahid and others have said, (would make you slip) “In order to have some effect on you.”
With their eyes, meaning, they will affect you by looking at you with their eyes (i.e., the evil eye).’
This means `they are jealous of you due to their hatred of you, and were it not for Allah’s protection of you, defending you against them (then their evil eye would harm you).’
The Effect of the Evil Eye is Real
In this Ayah is a proof that the effect of the evil eye and its affliction by the command of Allah is real. Many Hadiths have been reported concerning this through numerous routes of transmission.
The Hadith of Buraydah bin Al-Husayb Abu `Abdullah bin Majah recorded from Buraydah bin Al-Husayb that the Messenger of Allah said,
There is no Ruqyah except to cure the evil eye and the sting.
This is how Ibn Majah recorded this Hadith.
Imam Muslim also recorded this Hadith in his Sahih on the authority of Buraydah himself, but he did not attribute it to the Prophet.
There is a story concerning this incident (as reported by Buraydah in Sahih Muslim).
Muslim recorded in his Sahih from Ibn `Abbas that the Prophet said, The evil eye is real. If anything were to overtake the divine decree (and change it, then it would be the evil eye. And if you perform Ghusl (to remove the evil eye) then wash well.
It is reported from Ibn Abbas that he said, “The Messenger of Allah used to invoke Allah’s protection for Al-Hasan and Al-Husayn (his grandsons) by saying,
أُعِيذُكُمَا بِكَلِمَاتِ اللهِ التَّامَّةِ مِنْ كُلِّ شَيْطَانٍ وَهَامَّةٍ وَمِنْ كُلِّ عَيْنٍ لَامَّة
I seek protection for you two by the perfect Words of Allah from every Shaytan, and dangerous creature, and from every eye that is evil.
Then he would say: Thus, did Ibrahim used to seek protection for Ishaq and Ismail (his sons).”
This Hadith was recorded by Al-Bukhari and the Sunan compilers.
The Hadith of Abu Umamah As`ad bin Sahl bin Hunayf
Ibn Majah recorded from Abu Umamah As
ad bin Sahl bin Hunayf thatAmir bin Rabi`ah passed by Sahl bin Hunayf while he was bathing and he said,
“I haven’t seen the skin of a beautiful virgin girl nicer than this that I see today (i.e., commenting on how nice Sahl’s skin was).”
So he did not leave before he (Sahl) fell down on the ground. So he was brought to the Messenger of Allah and it was said to him (the Prophet) that Sahl had been afflicted by a seizure. The Prophet then said,
Who do you blame (or hold responsible) for this The people replied, “Amir bin Rabi`ah.” Then the Prophet said,
Would one of you knowingly kill his brother? If one of you sees something of his brother that he likes, then let him supplicate for blessings for him.
Then the Prophet called for some water and he commanded `Amir to perform Wudu’ with the water.
So he washed his face, his hands up to his two elbows, his two knees, and the inside of his Izar.
Then the Prophet commanded him to pour the water over Sahl.
Sufyan said that Ma`mar related from Az-Zuhri that he said,
“The Prophet ordered him to turn the water pot over (empty its contents over) him (Sahl) from behind him.”
An-Nasa’i recorded this Hadith through different routes from Abu Umamah with the wording,
“And he turned the pot over pouring its contents over him (Sahl) from behind him.”
The Hadith of Abu Sa`id Al-Khudri
Ibn Majah recorded that Abu Said Al-Khudri said, “The Messenger of Allah used to seek refuge from the evil eye of the Jinns and the evil eye of humans. Then when the Muawwidhatan were revealed, he used them (for seeking protection) and abandoned everything else.
This was recorded by At-Tirmidhi, and An-Nasa’i.
Another Hadith from Abu Sa`id Imam
Imam Ahmad recorded from Abu Sa`id that Jibril came to the Prophet and said, “O Muhammad, are you suffering from any ailment?”
The Prophet said, (Yes).” Then Jibril said,
بِاسْمِ اللهِ أَرْقِيكَ مِنْ كُلِّ شَيْءٍ يُوْذِيكَ وَمِنْ شَرِّ كُلِّ نَفْسٍ وَعَيْنٍ تَشْنِيكَ وَاللهُ يَشْفِيكَ بِاسْمِ اللهِ أَرْقِيك
“In the Name of Allah I pray over you for healing (Ruqyah), from everything that bothers you, from the evil of every soul and every evil eye that hates you, may Allah cure you, in the Name of Allah I pray over you for healing.”
This Hadith has been recorded by Muslim and the Sunan compilers except for Abu Dawud.
Imam Ahmad also recorded from Abu Said or Jabir bin Abdullah that the Messenger of Allah was bothered by some illness, and Jibril came to him and said,
بِاسْمِ اللهِ أَرْقِيكَ مِنْ كُلِّ شَيْءٍ يُوْذِيكَ مِنْ كُلِّ حَاسِدٍ وَعَيْنٍ اللهُ يَشْفِيك
In the Name of Allah I pray over you for healing (Ruqyah), from everything that bothers you, from every envious person and evil eye, may Allah cure you.
The Hadith of Asma’ bint Umays Imam Ahmad recorded fromUbayd bin Rifaah Az-Zuraqi that Asma’ said, “O Messenger of Allah! Verily, Bani Jafar are afflicted with the evil eye; should I seek to have Ruqyah
The Prophet replied,
Yes, for if anything could overcome the divine decree, it would be the evil eye.
Ibn Majah recorded from `A’ishah, may Allah be pleased with her, that
the Messenger of Allah ordered her to have Ruqyah performed as a cure against the evil eye.
This was reported by Al-Bukhari and Muslim.
The Hadith of Sahl bin Hunayf Imam Ahmad recorded from Abu Umamah bin Sahl bin Hunayf that his father informed him that;
The Messenger of Allah went out on a journey in the direction of Makkah and they (the Companions) accompanied him until they came to the valley of Kharrar from Al-Juhfah.
They stopped there and Sahl took a bath. He (Sahl) was a white man, with a handsome body and nice skin. So the brother of Bani
Adi bin Kab,
Amir bin Rabiah looked at Sahl while he bathed and he said,
“I haven’t seen the skin of a beautiful virgin girl nicer than this that I see today.”
Then Sahl suddenly had a seizure and fell to the ground. So he (Sahl) was brought to the Messenger of Allah and it was said to him,
“O Messenger of Allah! Can you do anything for Sahl By Allah, he has not lifted his head nor has he regained consciousness.”
The Prophet then said, Do you all blame (or hold responsible) anyone for what has happened to him)?
They said, “
Amir bin Rabiah looked at him.” So the Prophet called `Amir and he was very angry with him. He said,
Would one of you knowingly kill his brother? Why don’t you ask Allah to bless your brother when you see something (of him) that you like? Then the Prophet said, Bathe for him.
So he (Amir) washed his face, his hands, his elbows, his knees, his feet and the inside of his Izar (waist wrapper) in a drinking vessel. Then that water was poured over him (Sahl).
A man poured it over Sahl’s head and his back from behind him, then the container was turned upside down and emptied behind him. This was done, and afterwards Sahl recovered and left with the people having nothing wrong with him.”
The Accusation of the Disbelievers and the Reply to Them
Allah says, and they say: “Verily, he is a madman!” meaning, they cut at him with their eyes and attack him with their tongues saying, “Verily, he is a madman.” They say this because he came with the Qur’an.
Allah then says, But it is nothing else but a Reminder to all the creatures (`Alamin).
This is the end of the Tafsir of Surah Al-Qalam, and all praise and blessing belong to Allah
