Amulet Ume Subyan

Q:

Assalamu Alaikum,

I was wondering if anyone can guide me on any Imams hadith or ruling on Amulet of Ume Subyan? My wife and I were advised to wear one during pregnancy and I am a strong believer of religion than culture at the same time i dont want to disappoint my elders by not wearing with what they are giving with love.

Is there anything on Amulet of Umme Subyan in Shia fiqh and is it permissible to wear on during pregnancy if at all.

Thank you so much.

A:

Salaamun alaykum. Thank you for your question.
In olden days some little children used to suffer from a certain sickness and because people didnt know the actual cause of it, they thought the jinns/shaytan were the cause of the sickness. And this sickness was given different names, one of which is umme subyaan.
So theres a dua thats come in the hadith book Bihaarul anwaar from our 10th imam for curing umme subyaan which is a good dua and is full of meaning.
So it would be fine to wear it during pregnancy as well as it is a dua which has been taught by our imam.
