Assalaam Alaiqum wa Rehmat Allah.
May Allah SWT have mercy on all of us
I got this necklace from my grandma. Let me summon up the story real quick. My moms sides family is Turkish and as you know the “nazzar” eye which claims to protect you from the evil-eye is Shirk. If I ever got a nazzar eye as a gift I wouldn't have it myself on because I would have known is Shirk.
I got this as a gift, she said that she gotten this from Turkiye (don’t know where) and it is a Quran Verse written on a paper rolled up inside this little box or cage, I don’t know the name sorry.
Here’s my questions. Can I believe in it to protect me or just having it on? Is it Shirk or any makrooh or a sin to wear it around my neck? If I don’t believe in it and only having it on, is it allowed/acceptable? I’m male so am I even allowed to wear it?
I heard that some (fake) sheikhs that give them out for free but there are of names Shaytan written instead. They may even be sold outside from shops.
