Friend A: As-Salaamu Alaikum.
Friend B: Wa Alaikum As-Salaam Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh, what is this in your neck?
Friend A: It is a Ta'weez (amulet), our family Peer sahb gave it to me for my protection from evil eye.
Friend B: This is wrong brother, Rasoolullaah صلى الله عليه وسلم
never gave Ta'weez to any of his companion, while in the contrary, he said; "Whoever wears a Ta'weez, committed Shirk."
Friend A: Oh come on brother, what is Shirk in it? It only contains few Aayaat of the Qur'an, and Allaah himself says in the Qur'aan that there is Shifa (Cure) in it.
FEW DAYS LATER...
Friend B: As-Salaamu Alaikum Warahatullahi Wa Barakaatuh
Friend A: Wa Alaikum As-Salaam Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh, now what is this in your neck???
Friend B: Ohh, this is a bottle of honey.
Friend A: But why you are hanging it in your neck?
Friend B: You read in the Qur'an that the Qur'an contains Shifaa, I also read in the same Qur'an that even honey contains Shifaa. So, you hung aayaat of Qur'aan in your neck and I am hanging honey in the neck.
Friend A: Brother, are you crazy??? Honey contains Shifaa, but you have to drink/eat it, how will you be cured by hanging it on your neck.
Friend B: That's what I am trying to explain you that the Qur'an contains Shifaa, but you will be benefited by it only if you use it in the correct way, like the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم
used it, by reading, understanding and acting upon it. Hanging it on your neck won't benefit you, like honey won't benefit me by hanging it on the neck.
Friend A: Sub'haan Allaah, I have understood now my friend ,
Jazaak Allaahu Khayran!
