What do the noble ulamā say regarding this that for some days my eye is flickering a lot. Sometimes the right and sometimes the left. I have heard from people that the flickering of the right eye is a bad sign, is this correct?


بسم اللہ الرحمن الرحیم
الجواب بعون الملک الوھاب اللھم ھدایۃ الحق والصواب

Islām has forbidden people from taking bad omens. To consider the flickering of the eye as a bad sign is an ignorant conjecture in opposition to Islām. One should not give any attention to it. Preoccupy yourself with acquiring knowledge of necessary matters, the pillars of Islām and other important matters.

الله أعلم عز و جل و رسوله أعلم صلى الله تعالى عليه وآله و سلم
