Series: Ten Means for the One Seeking Allaah’s Protection against Magic, The Evil Eye and Envy
The Eighth means (of protection): Spending in charity and being good (to others by bringing them benefit and repelling harm from them) as much as one is able; for indeed this has an amazing effect in repelling calamity, the evil eye and the evil of an envious person. Hardly are the good doer and giver of charity overcome by the evil eye, the envy (of an envious person) and harm. And if afflicted by some of that (calamity), he is treated with kindness (by Allaah), given relief and support, and thus in that he has praiseworthy outcomes. Spending in charity and doing good are acts of gratitude to (Allaah for the favours He has bestowed on you) and it is a safeguard against everything that will cause those blessings to cease.
