The evil eye could have preceded taqdir

Question

Is this a Hadith?

“The evil-eye is true. If the evil- eye raced with fate, it would beat fate (it would change fate)”

What du’as can be recited for protection from the evil eye?

 

Answer

A similar authentic narration is recorded in Sahih Muslim and other Hadith collections.

Sayyiduna ‘Abdullah ibn ‘Abbas (radiyallahu ‘anhuma) reported that Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said: “The [ill effect of the] evil eye is true. If anything were to precede [alter the course of] taqdir it would have been the evil eye…”

(Sahih Muslim, Hadith: 2188)

 

See here for du’as for protection against evil eye.

 

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
