To be successful in constructing amulets and talismans sometimes it is not necessary to have contacts with higher or lower spiritual beings, instead you can be preordained for such work during birth. The secret lies in mysterious power of god which is called baraka.
Baraka or al-baraka is sometimes called "religious power" which stems directly from the prophet Muhammad and is continued through his descendants and Sufi brotherhood. It is believed that the power of baraka is therefore possessed by sheiks, Marabout (medicine man) and mystics. It is symbolized by the letter B which we can see in the content of numerous magical squares (wafq) as an upturned letter B. [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
Therefore Baraka is a positive energy and is concentrated in amulets and talismans, in certain types of objects such as ceramics or cloth, in plants, fragrances, etc. People with the power of Baraka are the ones that can cure people from the effects of black magic but also bless others. In Algeria it is believed that even after a person dies in its grave the Baraka continues with its beneficial effect and the graves of those people become cult places.
In Bosnia fo the people that possess the power of baraka it is said that they are "sevapli ruke" i.e. of a lucky hand. Such persons, according to belief, can successfully remove the effects of black magic, create amulets and talismans, and help those unlucky in matters of love but also those in love. Only a noble and kind person can have a lucky hand.
It is considered that the first prayer in the Qur'an Al-Fatiha possesses the power of baraka in its content and it is always used at the beginning and end of the process of creating an amulet. Ritual turning of the palms towards the sky, while the prayer is being uttered, is an open gesture of seeking god's blessing. In accordance with this it is believed that the amulet itself, called Hand of the Hazrat Fatima, which symbolises god's blessing, words Bismillah (In the name of Allah) and MashAllah (May Allah bless you) possesses the power of al-baraka.
