Treating evil eye

Q: As we know some people get evil eye removed from them by using female hair. They do it as such: The woman catches her hair which is tied and moves it up and down in front of the head of the other person and tells people's name whose evil eye might have happened on the person. Then she says that let the evil eye which is on you go to the trees of the forests. Then she recites Surah Naas, Surah Falaq etc.

A: These are all different types of treatments. Like you will go to a doctor and he may prescribe medication. So as long as the medication is of a halaal nature it is permissible. For further details in regard to undergoing treatment by Aamils, refer to

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
