Day Questions

Some people say that the "Blue Eye" saves us from the evil eye of some people. Is that correct?

This issue is widely believed in some societies, but we are not aware of religious texts that support it.

Is it the case that if a person wishes to marry his wife's niece, he cannot do so unless his wife permits it? Is it also the case if he wishes to marry his wife's aunt? In these issues, is there a difference between permanent and temporary marriage?

Yes, the permission of his wife is required for it to be permissible for him to marry her niece. The man does not need the wife's consent to marry her aunt. There is no difference in the two scenarios between the two types of marriages.
