A. Recite the three Quls thrice each every morning and evening every day. This is sufficient to ward of any evil including Nazr. Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) has mentioned this in the Hadith that is recorded in Abu Dawood. It is also advisable that when you enter your home or you see any of your wealth or possessions that you admire, say Masha Allah La Quwwata illa Billah. It is recorded that some Sahabah used to say this when they used to walk in to their homes and admire their wealth and possessions. They used to say Masha Allah La Quwwata illa Billah so that Nazr does not affect their wealth. (Rouhul Ma’ani).
