Dear Brother / Sister,
A Muslim is a person who has creed. He knows that there is a Creator, who always sees and protects him, and thus he becomes free of all kinds of grief and fears. He knows that no one can harm him unless Allah wishes.
It is permissible to pray and to write verses and hadiths on things and to have them on one’s body in order to be protected from things like fear and evil eye. Abdullah bin Umar reported the following from the Prophet (pbuh): “I take refuge in the words of Allah, who is free from imperfection, from the wrath and torture of Allah, from the evils of His slaves, from the delusions of the satans and from their visiting me." Then nobody can harm him. Abdullah bin Amr taught it to his children who reached the age of discernment, and wrote it on something and hung it around the neck of his children who did not reach the age of discernment (Abu Dawud, Nasai, Tirmidhi).
Our Prophet recommends reading the chapters al-Falaq and an-Nas in order to be protected from the evil of the jinni satans.
