As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

Dear Brother,

We pray that Allah Ta’ala protects you and your uncle from all types of evil.

You mention that you burnt five amulets and from then on you felt pain. You haven’t stated what your question is exactly. You may refer back to us regarding what you need help with. Ref: Tareque Ahmed.

Brother, a Muslim ought to be sensitive about keeping himself clean and performing Salah on time. He should not miss out a single Salah.  Consider the following Ahadeeth:


Rasulullah Sallallahu Alaihi wasallam said:

الصلاة عماد الدين

Translation: “Salah is foundation of the religion (Islam)”.  Shu’abul Iman Bayhaqi (3/39)


اول ما يحاسب به العبد يوم القيامة صلاته

Translation: The first thing for which the Muslim will be brought to account on the Day of Resurrection will be the prescribed (Fardh) prayers”. Musnad Ahmad (27/160)

And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best
