Other diseases can appear from the eye
What is ain disease? In simple terms, it is a disturbance caused by eye sight.
Meanwhile, Fatawa Al Lajna Ad Daimah or the Scientific Research Council and Fatwa in Saudi Arabia give a more complete understanding.
The origin of the word ain is from the word aana or ya’iinu which means it is exposed to something from the eye. Initially it was a sense of awe from people when they saw something.
Then followed by a negative feeling response, then the feeling or soul uses eye sight as an intermediary to channel poison to the object seen.
The view that causes this disorder can occur because of envy, jealousy, or hasad for the good or advantage that is in someone or something he sees.
Not only for humans, but also for things
In addition to humans, it turns out that a glance full of admiration can also cause other diseases in people or objects that are seen.
A gaze accompanied by disguised envy, due to excessive admiration, can also trigger eye disease that applies to inanimate objects, as well as to living things.
One of the great scholars of the past, Ibn al-Qayyim even mentioned that ain’s disease does not only come through sight, but in many cases shows that the disease can occur even through imagination.
Disturbances that arise can occur in various forms, from anxiety, physical illness, even to death. This is mentioned in a hadith narrated by Imam Muslim.
Prophet Muhammad sallallaahu ‘alaihi wasallam said which means:Ain really exists! If there is something that can precede destiny, it’s really ‘ain that can’“.
