Humans are not the only specie living in this universe. Nature has bonded him with every creation in this universe. From the elements of creation to unseen galaxies every thing has a connection with humans. Stars are always the part of human nature. He loves to look at the starry sky. The stories of star fairies and other creations living in these stars are told to him since his childhood. A human never breaks his relation with stars at every stages of age. In fact a human life circles around two stars or planets called Sun and Moon. These stars are so dear to humans that they love to resemble their closest relations with them. Literature, poetry and painting have no value and meanings without these stars. Humans are so obsessed with their love to these stars that they are trying to find ways to reach them. Modern science is also playing a vital role in developing human star relation. Plans are under way to make these stars a home for human race.
On one side we can see strong human love towards stars but on the other side we hear voices of dislike whenever a human is told about his spiritual relation to these stars. Without any solid reason people starts to argue whenever the role of stars in human development is highlighted.
In western world the spiritual relation of stars and human is often linked to the secret societies of the world. Due to this reason an ordinary person starts to question the use of various talismans and amulets based on planets. Certain images are used to make these talismans. Without any proper information some people try to link these symbols to freemason and illuminati. These criticisers forget that these secret societies were formed one hundred to two hundred years ago whereas the use of planets and their associated images is thousands of years old. It is not wrong to say that these secret societies realised the importance and use of the planets and images after witnessing their effects on human life and due to this reason these secret societies decided to benefit from the planets and their related images to expand their reign and to control the world affairs.
The situation is worse in Muslim society. It is the irony of Muslim world that they have given their faith in the hand of a person who is not educated enough. This self claimed religious authority has failed to differentiate between two simple words used in Holy Quran ‘’Bism بسم’’ and ‘’Baism باسم’’ for more than 14 hundred years. Whenever he hears or reads anything about the relation of planets and human he immediately issue the decree by declaring this relation as unlawful(haram) in Islam. Muslim community does not pay an attention to the attitude and practices of this religious authority. For 28 days of every month he declares human planet relation as unlawful but on 29th day this religious authority stands behind a telescope to observe the new moon so that he can make a schedule of his life according moon dates.
We find various chapters in the Holy Quran which are related to planets such as Al Shams(The Sun), Al Qamar(The Moon) and Al Najam(The Star). We present here few verses which put a light on the human and stars relations.
Surah Al Nakh verse 12: ‘’ And He has subjected for you the night and day and the sun and moon, and the stars are subjected by His command. Indeed in that are signs for a people who reason’’. Surah Al An’am verse 97: ‘’ And it is He who placed for you the stars that you may be guided by them through the darkness of the land and sea. We have detailed the signs for a people who know’’. No one can deny this historical fact that humans were used to travel in seas, land and deserts by taking guidance from the position of the stars. The human under the planetary guidance is according the verses of the Holy Quran. Surah Yunus verse 5: ‘’ It is He who made the sun a shining light and the moon a derived light and determined for it phases – that you may know the number of years and account [of time]. Allah has not created this except in truth. He details the signs for a people who know’’. The planet Moon holds a prominent place in the world of spirituality. Many talismans, amulets are made and spiritual exercises are conducted according to the different moon phase. Surah An Najam verses 1 to 3: ‘’ By the star when it descends. Your companion [Muhammad] has not strayed, nor has he erred. Nor does he speak from [his own] inclination’’. In these verses ALLAH is swearing a star to show the greatness and nobility of His Prophet. These verses of Holy Quran were revealed during the life of the companion of Prophet Muhammad(peace be upon Him and His Family). We find no exegesis of Holy Quran where the companions questioned about the relation of humans with stars. Every human relation has different effects of his life. The relation with stars also has positive and negative effects on a person’s life. Surah Al Waqia verses 75 to 77: ‘’ Then I swear by the setting of the stars. And indeed, it is an oath – if you could know – [most] great. Indeed, it is a noble Qur’an’’. In these verses ALLAH is taking swear of various phases of planetary movements to show the greatness of Holy Quran.
Every talisman and amulet works as a medium between highest universal energies and the person who is using it so that by making a link and contact with these highest forces he can live a better and happy life.

Harvard University has a book titled Anami Sharif in its bookcollection. The book was written during the Ottoman era. It was written in Turkish and Arabic. The book also shows talisman of Prophet Suleiman a.s. which is given for our readers:
This greatest talisman is based on the spiritual powers of a Quranic Surah Al Dahr. The Surah is also known as Surah Al Insan and Hal Ataa. The talisman holds the numeric value of entire Surah in special way. The particular method has never been done before for any talisman and amulet.
Majority of Quranic exegesis associate Surah Al Dahr to Ahle Bait a.s. Sunni and Shia agree that the entire Surah and in some tradition few verses of the Surah are for Hazrat Ali a.s., Hazrat Fatima a.s., Hazrat Imam Hassan a.s., Hazrat Imam Hussain a.s. and their servant Fizza r.a.
The summary of the Surah tells that when grand children of Prophet Mohammad(pbuh&hf), Imam Hassan and Imam Hussain a.s. fell sick, Prophet Mohammad(pbuh&hf) asked Hazrat Ali a.s. that why he does not make an avowal(Nazar,Mannat) for the quick health of both children. When ALLAH blessed the children with health Hazrat Ali a.s. and Hazrat Fatima a.s. decided to complete their avowal. They decided to fast for three regular days. When grandsons of Prophet Mohammad(pbuh&hf) heard about the avowal they also decide to take part in it with their parents. The servant Fizza r.a. also decided to participate in avowal. At breaking time of the fast every night a beggar comes to the door of Ahle Bait a.s. and ask for the food. Every member of the house of Ahle Bait a.s. gave their food to the beggar and break the fast with salt. This continued for three regular fasts. ALLAH revealed this situation in verses 7 to 9 of Surah Al Dahr: ‘’ They [are those who] fulfill [their] vows and fear a Day whose evil will be widespread.
And they give food in spite of love for it to the needy, the orphan, and the captive. [Saying], We feed you only for the countenance of Allah . We wish not from you reward or gratitude’’.
In the following verses Holy Quran reveals the reward of this deed by telling the blessings of paradise(Jannat). The verse 22 says that ‘’ [And it will be said], Indeed, this is for you a reward, and your effort has been appreciated’’.
The Ahle Sunnat religious scholars such as Imam Razi, Allam Zamakshari, Allama Nizam uddin Nishpuri, Ali Ahmed Al Wahdi and others have written the details of this incident in their books. Further details can be read from Ahle Sunnat books Al-Durr-ul-Manthoor of Hafez Jalaaluddeen al-Suyooti, Al-Bahr al-Moheet of Abu Hayyan al-Aandloosi and Yanabee’ al-Mawaddah of Hafez Sulaiman Qundoozi Al Hanfi. Most Shia religious scholars have similar views about Surah Al Dahr.
Apart from other reason the selection of Surah Al Dahr for this talisman is made due to the reward of human effort from ALLAH. The reward of human effort is this Surah is paradise(Jannat). Paradise is a place where everything will be in the perfect excellence. Due to the blessings of this talisman the difficulties of life are turned into happiness and stability by ALLAH.
