Question

A scholar told me that there are some plants which are blessed by Allah and have solutions for protecting you from a knife or even a gun. Is that true?

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.
There is no plant with such characteristics. In fact, what happens is that some charlatans who are friends of Jinns do not get hurt by these objects because of the Jinns who people their body. Some deviated groups which claim to be Muslims or others perform acts that are unbelievable by a sane person. Sometimes they use the Jinn other times they use Sihr (magic). Some even use tricks and games to deceive people. So, if the person eats this plant without repeating their Satanic words, he will be hurt by these objects just like any other normal person.
We conclude that the Muslim must stay away from and beware of the charlatans and deviated people. He should stick to the way of Ahlu Sunnah Wal Jamah. (Those who stick firmly to the authentic teachings of Islam).
Allah knows best.
