With regard to dealing with the evil eye and hasad (destructive envy), there is no doubt that when a person is close to Allah, always remembering Him (dhik) and reading Qur'aan, he is less likely to be affected by the
evil eye and other kinds of harm from the devils of mankind and the jinn.
The Prophet (SALLALLAHO ALAIHE WASALLAM) used to seek refuge with Allah for himself, and the greatest means of seeking refuge that is available to the Muslim is
reading the Book of Allah, above all the Mi'wadhatayn (the last two Surahs of the Qur'aan, al-Falaq and al-Naas), Surat al-Faatihah and Aayat al-Kursi [al-Baqarah 2:255]
Among the saheeh du'aa's which have been narrated from the
Prophet (SALLALLAHO ALAIHE WASALLAM) are:
A'oodhu bi kalimaat Allahit-taammaati min sharri maa khalaq (I seek refuge
in the perfect words of Allah from the evil of that he has created)
[Narrated by Muslim, al-Dhikr wa'l-Du'aa]
It was narrated that Ibn 'Abbaas (RA) said: 'The Prophet (SALLALLAHO ALAIHE WASALLAM)S used to seek refuge with Allah for Hasan (RA) and Husayn (RA). He said:
'Your father [i.e., Ibraaheem] used to seek refuge with Allah for Ismaa'eel (AS) and Ishaaq (AS) with these words: A'oodhu bi kalimaat Allahit-taammah min kulli shaytaanin wa haammah wa min kulli 'aynin laammah (I seek refuge in
the perfect words of Allah, from every devil and every poisonous reptile,and from every bad eye)' [Narrated by al-Bukhaari, Ahaadeeth al-Anbiyaa']
Undoubtedly, when a person persists in reciting the adhkaar (dhikr) for morning and evening, and the adhkaar for going to sleep, and others, this will have a great effect in protecting him from the evil eye.
And Allah knows best.
