Chapter Five (Spiritual Ailments )

Can the Evil Eye Cause Psychological Ailments?

There is nothing that opposes this at all, for the evil eye can affect any of the things that he likes or aspires for. One may envy another person’s happiness or joy which might afflict this person with depression and other psychological ailments.
There is no contrast between the possibility of being afflicted with an evil eye, and the diagnosis of the psychiatric that he suffers from depression. The cause of his ailment is the evil eye while depression is the symptom of this affliction; i.e. the evil eye is the cause and depression is its symptom.
