The Reality of Magic
Black Magic (seher) and the Evil eye are fact. They exist and have always existed since the dawn of history. Our Beloved Prophet Muhammad ( صلى الله عليه و سلم) was inflicted by Black Magick and he remained under its influence until Allah (SWT) sent Angels to inform him of what was done and where it was hidden. Surah Nass and Falaq were revealed to deal with that particular type of Black Magic. This is not fiction.
The Quran was not just sent to tell us right from wrong but also as a “Healing“.
Allah (SWT) created everything in the heavens and on the earth and He says that He created everything by the power of His WORDS.
His command is only when He intends a thing that He says to it, “Be,” and it is
Thus Allah’s words have power and He has sent us His words in the form of Holly Quran. If only humans in general and Muslims in particular could fully grasp that concept, the world will be a better place. The power of Allah’s words is evident from the story of Prophet Sulaiman and Queen Sheba and also from this verse below.
Had We sent down this Qur’an on a mountain, you would surely have seen it humbling itself and rending asunder by the fear of Allah. Such are the parables which We put forward to mankind that they may reflect.
For Allah to send us His words and messenger is the greatest blessing ever and is the ultimate act of mercy.
“And We have not sent you (o Mohammad), except as a mercy to the worlds (men and jinn)”
Ruqyah is the process by which selected verses of the Quran are recited following a specific sequence to heal physical, emotional, mental and spiritual diseases of mankind.
Definition of magic:
Magic and its existence is confirmed by the Qur’an and Sunnah and is agreed upon by all the scholars. It is a reality and a truth. It affects a person only by Allah’s will (meaning Allah has allowed it to work). There is a consensus among the scholars of Tafseer that Surah Al-Falaq was revealed because of Habeebbin Asum who did magic on the Prophet ( صلى الله عليه و سلم). Magic is an art that requires skill and proficiency from the one who performs it. It is a type of knowledge that has a foundation, methodology and principles. However, learning it is not permissible and it is kufr (disbelief) because it cannot be learned or practised without requesting the help of Shaytan, worshipping him, and using forbidden and unlawful things. So it is kufr to learn or practice it Black magic is an incantation, knot, or spell done by the magician/saaher with special rituals that involve worshipping and invoking upon shayaateen. Depending on the type of magic/sehr done, it has a direct affect on the heart, body and/or intellect of the victim without having direct contact with that person. It is a reality that kills, causes sickness, or prevents relationships (sexual) between a man and his wife, causes separation between them, or between families, places anger between families or friends, and causes a person to love those whom he hates in order to have a relationship and to be a source of spreading destruction.
Witchcraft and sorcery are also common ways to manipulate jinns into afflicting harm on people. So, what is black magic? In a nutshell, it is the use of negative energy and powers, summoning devils and shayateen (plural of shaytan) by evil minded people who are dedicated to harm or deprive others from living peaceful lives through sickening means. Black magicians would generally summon evil spirits by performing sacrificial rituals of humans or animals, depending on the severity of the magic. Once they acquire control over the spirit they are able to cause chaos in any aspect of people’s lives whether it is wealth, career, unexplainable health problems, family problems/tensions, mental illnesses, marriage problems, abnormal behaviour and in extreme cases; death. They experience an evil kind satisfaction at the expense of others hardship. Such horrid people are generally driven towards this sickening act due to jealousy, greed, selfishness, negativity and the inability to acknowledge other’s happiness and growth. This really is a huge problem in our society and unfortunately it has escalated in the last few years. The worst thing about it is that the main suspects are usually relatives, close friends, associates and even siblings (This is not always the case, but generally in certain communities this is how it is). There are serious consequences for those who dwell in black magic such as coming out of the fold of Islam as the Prophet ( صلى الله عليه و سلم) mentioned:
“He is not of us, the one who sees evil omens, or the one the one whose behalf they are seen, or the one who practices soothsaying, or the one on whose behalf it is practiced; or the one who practices sorcery, or the one for whom sorcery is done.”
Imam Ibn Hajar (rahimuhullah) said: ” Magic is disbelief and learning it is kufr.” Fath ul Bari 10/195.
Imam An-Nawawi (rahimuhullah) said: ” The knowledge of magic is forbidden and it is among the major sins.” Fatawa Ibn Baz 2/384.
The Prophet ( صلى الله عليه و سلم) included it among the major sins that destroy mankind and needs to be kept away from.
Ibn Qudaamah said: ” teaching and learning magic is forbidden and there is no difference on the issue by the scholars.” Al-Mughnee 8/151
The Punishment for Magicians:
The punishment for magicians is beheading. The Prophet ( صلى الله عليه و سلم) said: ” The punishment for a magician is beheading.”
Umar (RA) ordered all magicians to be killed in his time. This proves the severity of magic. So it is compulsory on us to keep away from magic and anything that is connected to it.
Black Magic or Sihr is an evil practice, existence of which has been confirmed by Allah in Quran:
“And they followed [instead] what the devils had recited during the reign of Solomon. It was not Solomon who disbelieved, but the devils disbelieved, teaching people magic and that which was revealed to the two angels at Babylon, Harut and Marut. But the two angels do not teach anyone unless they say, “We are a trial, so do not disbelieve [by practising magic].” And [yet] they learn from them that by which they cause separation between a man and his wife. But they do not harm anyone through it except by permission of Allah . And the people learn what harms them and does not benefit them. But the Children of Israel certainly knew that whoever purchased the magic would not have in the Hereafter any share. And wretched is that for which they sold themselves, if they only knew.” [Surah 2, Verse 102]
Have you heard of this before Salah rids one’s of sins, fasting rids one’s of sins so listen to this as well. ALLAH loves to see his creation to live in love so much so that when a husband and wife quarrel, then make up (i.e., they forgive each other, cleanse their hearts and exchange gifts), just for this,ALLAH would forgive them their sins. ALLAH says the regret of the sinners leaves ME more impressed than the Piety of the Pious, so hasten to get your sins forgiven.
A person can not be a Muslim and a Magician in the same time. The person who is engaged in Magic is a servant of the Shaytaan (Devil). A person cannot become a Magician until he reaches the highest form of disbelief from which there is rarely any return. The Shayataan promises him richness and fame. Some people enter in field of magic because of doubts in their heart regarding Allah, some enter in this field because of their desires and this is the majority. The Magician cannot practice Magic without committing Shirk without committing disbelief, without committing one of the strongest and most Evil disbelieves of the law of Allah Subhana wa taala. It is an act that will take a person out of the fold of Islam.
Iblees sets his throne in water and then shayaateen (his workers) come and report to him all the mischeif that they have done, one that would come and say: I have good news for you, I did not leave the husband and wife until I separated them. Iblees would say, “you are the one” and he hugs him and makes him sit next to him. A magician is both, a kafir and the one who seeks the help of shayaateen.
Iblees (satan) said, “My Lord, because You have put me in error, I will surely make [disobedience] attractive to them on earth, and I will mislead them all Except, among them, Your chosen servants. Allah said, This is a path [of return] to Me [that is] straight Indeed, My servants no authority will you have over them, except those who follow you of the deviators And indeed, Hell is the promised place for them all. It has seven gates; for every gate is of them a portion designated.” Indeed, the righteous will be within gardens and springs. (Quran 15: 39-45 )
Indeed, there is for him no authority over those who have believed and rely upon their Lord. His authority is only over those who take him as an ally and those who through him associate others with Allah . (Quran 16: 99-100)
