Question:In the last year of my bachelor's degree, there was some issue at my home due to which I went into the phase of severe depression and as a result of that I became ill. My brain was just burning inside out and the rest of the body was very hot. I consulted the doctors and they suggested me to go for outing. I did that and the burning of the head stopped. But I knew that it wasn't the proper solution to my problem. I wasn't able to perform my Zikr o Ibadat because I wasn't getting happiness and satisfaction from that. While performing tahajjud (Namaz e Shab) I got scared every time. So I left offering my tahajjud. But my health was good. Now after 6 months the same burning of head and lot of pressure on brain started again. I went to a spirtual doctor, syed baba who was shia, for finding the solution to my problem. He said that I have an evil eye of a Jinn. He gave me some taweez. But stil I have some burning and pressure on my head. Also I was wearing a Feroza on my right hand but unfortunately I lost that ring somewhere. My mother told me that as I have lost my Feroza and now I am not wearing it so that's why this pressure and burning of head is occuring. Can you please tell me that what's wrong with me and what should I do now?
Can you please evaluate to tell me that is there any effect of an evil eye of a Jinn?
Please tell me some methods to get rid of this illness.

Ayatollah:Sistani

Answer: As it has mention in the Holy Quran
اَلا بذِكرِ الله تَطمَئِنُ القلوب
Lo! Remembrance of Allah (swt ) gives peace and tranquility to hearts.
But this remembrance should not be just by tongue rather it should be as if that a person feels the presence of Allah in all aspects of his life. There are many Zikr and Duas which can cause peace and tranquility. Please recite this zikr after your Salat 70 times:
سبحان الله و الحمد الله و لا اله الا الله و الله اكبر

ما شاءَ الله لا حَولَ وَ لا قوَّةَ إلّا باللهِ العَلِیِّ العَظیم
Continue your salat on its actual time Inshallah soon you will get recovery.

Question:How to guide your children from the shaytan ages 14,boy 15 girl from influential friends that they make? A lot of parents are so busy with work to make money and don’t pay attention to their children and what they do. As I do not work and I see many things that is not good for their hereafter. I cannot guide these many children but the influence is really overwhelming. I want to move from my city to make another move eventually out of western world to not lose them to shaytan for I do not have family that follow. As for my husband he has but always busy same thing work both leave kids. Please help

Ayatollah:Fadlallah

Answer: I accept your worry and really this is a big challenge in western countries to secure one’s faith and Deen. But when we see eastern countries either Gulf countries or Middle East or Indian sub continent even these countries are also not that much safe and clean. Therefore the only solution is remaining for us to see the true guidance of Ahlul Bayt (a.s). If we see their life and guidance they always focus an building up true faith in Allah (swt) we Muslims have many things on the name of religion but we don’t have true faith and awareness of Islam. That is why we are loosing our generation. In my view if we give time to our children and tell them openly about the situation and culture what we have in both east and west and this saying and whispering should continue till they reach to their age of puberty then inshallah Allah will help us and them too. But we should try to teach them the very basics of Islam for example never tell lie,never hurt others feelings, never do oppression, never forget hereafter and Allah.
Inshallah Allah will help as He is the best Helper. As Holy Quran says:
وَلِلَّهِ الْمَشْرِقُ وَالْمَغْرِبُ فَأَيْنَمَا تُوَلُّوا فَثَمَّ وَجْهُ اللَّهِ إِنَّ اللَّهَ وَاسِعٌ عَلِيمٌ

And Allah's is the East and the West, therefore, whither you turn, thither is Allah's purpose; surely Allah is Ample-giving, Knowing.(2:115)
