Question

Is the use of pepper and chillies proven from Holy Prophet (p .b .u. h.) from the removal of or protection from the evil eye?

Answer

Praise be to Allah, the Lord of the Worlds; and blessings and peace be upon our Prophet Muhammad and upon all his Family and Companions.
We do not know any sound evidence from the Prophet about using pepper and chillies to remove the effects of evil eye or to protect from it. A Muslim is obliged to follow the sound Sunnah of the Prophet and adhere to permissible treatment for all kind of diseases, avoiding all kinds of myths and innovations which result from the lack of knowledge and ignorance.

Allah knows best.
