Superiority of those who neither treat with

nor take omens
9) Narrated Ibn Mas that Prophet Muhammad said: On the Day of Resurrection nations will be brought. When I see my nation (Ummah) I will be amazed at their multitudes and (distinguished) form. They will have filled up the plain lands as well as the mountains. Allah will ask me: Are you satisfied? I will say: Yes, 0 my Lord: He will say: Along with these (people), seventy thousand persons (i.e., so many) will enter Paradise without rendering an account. They will be those who neither cure themselves with Ruqya (recitations) nor get themselves branded (cauterized), nor take omens but they instead repose trust in their Lord. Upon this, 'Ukkasha said: Supplicate Allah (that He makes me one among them), the Prophet said: Allah! Make him one of them. Another person said: Invoke a blessing for me too (that Allah makes me one among them). The Prophet said: 'Ukkasha has preceded you in this matter.
(This Hadith is sound and reported by Ibn Hibban in his book)
An amulet is something worn around the neck for protection against evil spirits or spell.
