What is Hollow Amulet
Normally to write such difficult content it takes around one month or even more. In order to align the writing with the lunar phase. During the this process, the Imam is praying to Allah and lighting pleasant fragrances, before and after writing. And sometimes they even fasts when processing more demanding parts of the amulet.
Its most important purpose is wish-for annulling of negative energy through a ritual of passing the diseased through it i.e. the amulet is passed from the head down the body to the legs in a circle shape, usually three times or 7 times. Another specificity of this amulet is that it is not carried with oneself, unlike the rest, and after using Imam places it in a clean and neat place, until the next time it needs to be used.
