Another question on amulets (ta’widh)


I found different reports about the amulet (ta’widh) and I didn’t understand.

The permissibility of ta’widh is supported by several companions and great Tabi`in,

But I read in a book the following report:

Ibrahim Nakha’i (rahimahullah) says : They (the Companions) disapproved all amulets (with Quran or without Quran) (Musannaf ibn Abi Shayba vol.8 pg.15 , or vol.8 pg.14 Hadith: 23918 Al Faruq edition)

How we should understand that?

Were the companions for or against the ta’widh?

It is narrated that Abdullah ibn ‘Umar (radiyallahu ‘anhu) said: “While we were praying with Rasulullah (sallallahu’alayhi wasallam), a man from the crowd said:

[Allah is indeed the Greatest, all praises are due to Him, many praises, and all glory is His alone, morning and evening.]

Rasulullah (sallallahu’alayhi wasallam) said: Who is the one who said these words? A person from the crowd said: It is me O Messenger of Allah. The Prophet said: They amazed me! They caused the doors of heaven to be opened. Ibn `Umar said: I have never abandoned these words since I heard Rasulullah (sallallahu’alayhi wasallam) say that.”
