Nazar (evil eye)

The Reality of the Evil Eye (Nazar)
evileye
Reference for most of below is Healing with Medicine of Prophet  by: Imam Ibn Qayyim Al-Jauziyah
The reason for the evil eye is mostly because of envy (envy is to wish for the prevention of bounty (good things) for another person, even though the envier doesn’t wish for this bounty). The reality of envy is the result of hatred and malice, which is the result of anger.   : Reference Fath Al-Haq Al-Mubeen, 219)
The evil eye is like an arrow or spear that leaves the soul of the envier and goes to the person that is envied. It afflicts the person envied at times and sometimes it doesn’t. When it doesn’t afflict him, it is because of the protective methods he uses (whether supplications, seeking refuge, etc).  Also, when it doesn’t afflict him, the evil eye can return to the envier
What is an important fact to know is that the evil eye has no effect except by Allah’s will. A man can give himself infect the evil eye (Nazar) and he can also give it to others. It can afflict someone without even being seen by the envier. For example, a blind man cannot see a person, but he can still cast the evil eye, or perhaps if the person is not around and they are described to the envier without being seen by him, it can afflict that person. It can also be afflicted by one being amazed at him without being envious to him or others. The evil eye (Nazar) can be done by anyone, even a loved one or a righteous person. So, it is incumbent on each and every one of us to take the necessary precautions and try to prevent being affected by the evil eye, and to say the supplications and remembrance upon seeing something amazing and good. : Reference Fath Al-Haq Al-Mubeen, 198)
The evil eye is a terrible affliction that afflicts mankind; it is the most widespread affliction in the world. Most people of this nation (Muslims) will die due to it, after, what Allah has decreed.
 
Evil mentioned in Quran
وَإن يَكَادُ الَّذِينَ كَفَرُواْ لَيُزْلِقُونَكَ بِأَبْصَارِهِمْ لَمَّا سَمِعُواْ الذِّكْرَ
“And verily, those who disbelieve would almost make you slip with their eyes (through hatred) when they bear the Reminder (the Quran)” (69:51)
Furthermore, Allah Says: –
قُلْ أَعُوذُ بِرَبِّ الْفَلَقِ مِن شَرِّ مَا خَلَقَ وَمِن شَرِّ غَاسِقٍ إذَا وَقَبَ وَمِن شَرِّ النَّفَّاثَاتِ فِى الْعُقَدِ وَمِن شَرِّ حَاسِدٍ إذَا حَسَدَ
“I seek refuge with (Allah); the Lord of the daybreak, from the evil of what He Has Created And from the evil of the darkening (night) as it comes with its darkness; (or the moon as it sets or goes away), and from the evil of those who practice witchcraft when they blow in the knots. And from the evil of the envier when he envies”
