The Details of the Question
Is it appropriate to keep a plate, etc. having a pattern of evil eye bead on at home? Is it permissible to wear an evil eye bead?
The Answer

Dear Brother / Sister,

It is definitely haram to wear an evil eye bead. It is a nonsensical custom dating back to the Era of Jahiliyyah. The Prophet (pbuh) stated the following:

"May Allah not complete the work of a person who wears an evil eye bead!" (Hakim and Ahmad narrated it)

Even if it is an ornament, it is necessary not to keep it at home so as not to spread such a superstitious custom.
