MAGIC


Magic is a knot or spell that has effects on the heart and body, It causes the heart or body to become sick, it can kill a person, it separates a man and his wife, and destroys family ties.
 It is an incantation, knot, spell, and statement that are used in speeches, written or in actions that have an effect on the body, heart or intellect of a person 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.

 

Magic and its existence is confirmed by the Qur'an and Sunnah and is agreed upon by the scholars. It is a reality and a truth, and it affects a person only by Allah's will. 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 (saws).

 

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 practiced without requesting the help of Shaytan, worshipping him, and using forbidden and unlawful things. So it is kufr to learn or practice it.

The Reality of the Evil Eye

The evil eye is a terrible affliction that afflicts mankind; it is the most widespread affliction in the world. Most people of this nation (Muslims) will die from it after what Allah has decreed. The Prophet (saws) said:


" Most of those who will die from my nation after what Allah has decreed will be from the evil eye. " (Fath al-haqq al Mubeen, As-Sahih, 747)



The evil eye is a reality and a truth that a person needs to seek cure and protection from. The Prophet (saws) said : " The evil is true (reality)...." (Sahih Muslim, 2188)

 

It is permissible in Islam to seek Ruqyah for it, as Annas(radiallahu anh) narrated that the Prophet (saws) Made it an ease to take Ruqyah for fever and the evil eye. (Sahih Muslim 2197)

 

The evil eye is from two sources

1) the evil eye from mankind

2) the evil eye from Jinn
 

The evil eye from mankind is confirmed in many narrations, as Abu Sated (radiallahu anh) said the Prophet (saws) said to seek refuge from jinn's and the evil eye from mankind. (At-tirmidhi, 2058)
 

As for evil eye from jinn's, it has been narrated ny Umm Salamah (radiallahu anhaa) that the Prophet (saws) saw in her house a slave girl and in her face was sa faa'ah. upon which the Prophet (saws) aid: " Seek Ruqyah for her, for verily she is afflicted with a look (evil eye). " (Al-Bukhari, 5739)
 

The scholars have said "As-sa-faa'ah" is the evil eye from Jinn's.

 

The reason for the evil eye is mostly because of envy (envy is to wish for the prevention of bounty for another person, even though the envier doesn't wish for this bounty). The reality of envy is the result of hatred and malice, which is the result of anger. ( Fath Al-Haq Al-Mubeen, 219)

 

The evil eye is like an arrow or spear that leaves the soul of the envier and goes to the person that is envied. It afflicts the person envied at times and sometimes it doesn't. When it doesn't afflict him, it is because of the protective methods he uses (whether supplications, seeking refuge, etc.) Also, when it doesn't. afflict him, the evil eye can return to the envier. (The Medicine of the Prophet, 138)

 

Ibn Teen (Rahimuhullah) said:

"Treating with Muawwizaat, (Surah An-Naas, Al-Falaq, etc) and other forms, such as the names of Allah are medicine for the soul. So if these forms of treatment are on the tongueof the righteous, cure will be achieved bythe will of Allah."

 

The Punishment for Magicians

The punishment for magicians is beheading. The Prophet (saws) 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.
