Wearing a "black dora" to protect one from nazar?

Q: Is it permissible for a pregnant woman or when a baby is born to wear a black dora on the hand or feet to protect from nazar?

A: If it is an elaaj it is permissible, provided it does not contain anything of the nature of kufr and shirk.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
