Are there any numbers or days which bring about bad luck?

Question:

What do the scholars and experts of shari’ah say regarding a person who considers certain numbers, days and years, entering specific places or wearing certain types of clothing as an omen for good or evil?

Answer:

All perfect praise is for Allah ﷻ The Lord of the Worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of worship except Allah ﷻ, and that Prophet Muhammad ﷺ is His Messenger.

The pure shari’ah has categorically forbidden the use of numbers, days, and other superstitious beliefs as a means for perceiving bad omens. Matters are linked to their asbab (causes) which have been preordained by the command of Allah ﷻ. Any benefit or harm have no link with the person at all, it is all divinely ordained.

And Allah ﷻ knows best.
