BLACK MAGIC AND ITS CURE The subject of the jinn is one which is of interest to many people.

Folk stories abound, and many superstitious practices have arisen in Muslim cultures with regard to protection against the jinn. Many myths surround the ideas of the evil eye and envy, and there are many strange notions surrounding illnesses such as epilepsy and mental illness, which are often thought of as being caused by the jinn. The jinn are real and they can indeed harm humans, . PRESCRIBED MEANS OF WARDING OFF SIHR(WITCHCRAFT) BEFORE IT HAPPENS: What are the prescribed means of warding off sihr before it happens?. Praise be to Allaah. Among the most important means of warding off the danger of sihr before it happens is seeking protection through the adhkaar (dhikr) prescribed in Islam, making du aa and reciting prayers seeking refuge that were narrated from the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him). These include: 1 Reciting Aayat al-Kursiy [al-Baqarah 2:255] after every prescribed prayer, after reciting the adhkaar which are prescribed after the salaam. 2 Reciting Aayat al-Kursiy when going to sleep. This is the greatest aayah in the Qur aan, in which Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning): Allaah! Laa ilaaha illa Huwa (none has the right to be worshipped but He), Al-Hayyul-Qayyum (the Ever Living, the One Who sustains and protects all that exists). Neither slumber nor sleep overtakes Him. To Him belongs whatever is in the heavens and whatever is on the earth. Who is he that can intercede with Him except with His Permission? He knows what happens to them (His creatures) in this world, and what will happen to them in the Hereafter. And they will never compass anything of His Knowledge except that which He wills. His Kursiy extends over the heavens and the earth, and He feels no fatigue in guarding and preserving them. And He is the Most High, the Most Great [al-Baqarah 2:255] 3 Reciting Qul huwa Allaahu ahad , Qul a oodhu bi Rabb il-Falaq and Qul a oodhu bi Rabb il-Naas [i.e., the last three soorahs of the Qur aan] following every prescribed prayer, and reciting these three soorahs (three times) at the beginning of the day after Fajr prayer, and at the beginning of the night after Maghrib prayer. 4 Reciting the last two aayahs of Soorat al-Baqarah at the beginning of the night. These are the aayahs in which Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning): The Messenger (Muhammad) believes in what has been sent down to him from his Lord, and (so do) the believers. Each one believes in Allaah, His Angels, His Books, and His Messengers. (They say,) We make no distinction between one another of His Messengers and they say, We hear, and we obey. (We seek) Your forgiveness, our Lord, and to You is the return (of all). Allaah burdens not a person beyond his scope. He gets reward for that (good) which he has earned, and he is punished for that (evil) which he has earned. Our Lord! Punish us not if we forget or fall into error, our Lord! Lay not on us a burden like that which You did lay on those before us (Jews and Christians);

our Lord! Put not on us a burden greater than we have strength to bear. Pardon us and grant us forgiveness. Have mercy on us. You are our Mawlaa (Patron, Supporter and Protector) and give us victory over the disbelieving people [al-Baqarah 2:285-285] And it was narrated in a saheeh report that the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: Whoever recites Aayat al-Kursiy at night will have ongoing protection from Allaah and no devil will come near him until morning comes. And it was also narrated in a saheeh report that the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: Whoever recites the last two aayahs of Soorat al-Baqarah at night, that will suffice him. The meaning and Allaah knows best is that that will be sufficient protection for him against all evil. 5 Seeking refuge in the perfect words of Allaah from the evil of that which He has created, night and day and when stopping to rest anywhere, be it in the city, in the desert, in the air or on the sea. The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: Whoever stops to rest and says, A oodhu bi kalimaat Allaah il-taammah min sharri ma khalaq (I seek refuge in the perfect words of Allaah from the evil of that which He has created), nothing will harm him until he moves on from that place. 6 The Muslim should say at the beginning of the day and the beginning of the night (three times): Bismillaah alladhi laa yadurr ma a ismihi shay un fi l-ardi wa laa fi l-samaa i wa huwa al-samee alaleem (In the name of Allaah with Whose name nothing on earth or in heaven can cause harm, and He is the All-Hearing, All-Knowing). According to saheeh reports, the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) urged us to recite this, and this is a means of keeping safe from all evil. These adhkaar and prayers for refuge are among the greatest means of warding off the evil of sihr (witchcraft) and other evils, for the one who recites them regularly with sincerity and faith, putting his trust in Allaah and depending upon Him, and being content with that. They are also some of the most effective weapons for warding off sihr after it has happened, along with humbly beseeching Allaah constantly and asking Him to remove the harm and relieve the distress. Among the du aa s which have been narrated from the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) to treat diseases such as sihr and other things is the ruqyah by means of which he (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) used to treat his companions: Allaahumma Rabb al-naas, adhhib ilba s, washfi anta al-Shaafi laa shifaa a illa shifaa uka shifaa an laa yughaadir saqaman (O Allaah, Lord of mankind, remove the harm and heal him, for You are the Healer and there is no healing except Your healing, with a healing which does not leave any disease behind). There is also the ruqyah by means of which Jibreel treated the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him): Bismillaah urqeeka min kulli shay in yu dheeka, wa min sharri kulli nafsin aw aynin haasid Allaah yashfeek, bismillaah urqeek (In the name of Allaah I perform ruqyah for you, from every thing that is harming you, from the evil of every soul or envious eye may Allaah heal you, in the name of Allaah I perform ruqyah for you). This should be repeated three times. And Allaah knows best. Majmoo Fataawa wa Maqaalaat al-Shaykh Abd al- Azeez ibn Baaz (may Allaah have mercy on him), vol. 8

As each verse was recited. namely Surah al-Falaq and Surah al-Nas. I used to recite these two Surahs (and blow my breath) over him and make him rub his body with his own hand. scholars mention that the recitation of the Mu¶awwazatayn (the two Quls: al-Falaq and alNas) is very beneficial in the removing of and protection from black magic. According To Islam In the name of Allah.So Here's I 'm Going To Tell You About More Of Black Magic. At the eleventh knot. 4728) Apart from these two Surahs. One should make a habit of reciting these especially when retiring to bed and after the Fardh prayers. A Jew by the name of Labid ibn Asim who outwardly posed to be a believer (munafiq) carried out black magic on the Messenger of Allah (Allah bless him & give him peace). and last two verses of Surah al-Baqarah is also very beneficial. the knots untied miraculously. no. At times the Messenger of Allah (Allah bless him & give him peace) felt he had accomplished something yet he had not done so and vice versa. the Jews would have turned me into a donkey (m: out of black magic). The Messenger of Allah (Allah bless him & give him peace) was also afflicted with black magic. He took the hair of the Messenger of Allah (Allah bless him & give him peace) and made eleven knots and placed it under a rock in a well called Zarwan. (See: Tafisir Ibn Kathir & Ma¶arif al-Qur¶an) Thus.. There are many virtues of these two Surahs mentioned in the Ahadith. The effect of this was that it created uncertainty in the mind of the Messenger of Allah (Allah bless him & give him peace) as to whether he had done or not done certain things (although this had no effect on his religious and prophetic obligations). Ka¶b al-Ahbar (Allah be pleased with him) states: ³Had it not been for the phrases that I recite regularly. Ayat al-Kursi. It was said to him: ³What are these phrases?´ He replied: Transliteration: ³A¶uzu bi wajhillah al-Adhim alladhi laysa shay¶un a¶dhamu minhu wa bi kalimatillah attammati allati la yujawizuhunna barrun wa la fajir wa bi asmaillah al-husna kulliha ma alimtu . for its blessings. Black magic (sihr) is something that definitely exists and causes harm to people. The Messenger of Allah (Allah bless him & give him peace) together with the Companions (Allah be pleased with them all) went to the well and removed the knotted hair. When his illness was aggravated. The angel Jibra¶il informed the Messenger of Allah (Allah bless him & give him peace) as to what had occurred and came down with the two Surahs. he would recite the Mu¶awwizat (Surah al-Falaq & Surah an-Nas) and blow over himself. Most Compassionate. Most Merciful. the famous Tibi¶i. Sayyida A¶isha (Allah be pleased with her) narrates that whenever the Messenger of Allah (Allah bless him & give him peace) would become ill. the Messenger of Allah (Allah bless him & give him peace) was relieved from the effects of this black magic.´ (Sahih al-Bukhari.

I would like to state that undoubtedly black magic is something that exits. One should not be too hasty in concluding that the cause of a problem is black magic. And in the case of being afflicted with it. the consuming of Ajwa dates has been prescribed by the Messenger of Allah (Allah bless him & give him peace) as a remedy for black magic. thus they are charged with a massive sum for the treatment. from the evil of everything He (Allah) created. Also. Amir ibn Sa¶d narrates from his father that the Messenger of Allah (Allah bless him & give him peace) said: ³He who eats seven Ajwa dates every morning. to which He has given existence. and I seek the protection of all the beautiful names of Allah. 2/541. And I seek the protection of the perfect words of Allah which no man. thus one may resort to any of them. Secondly. if there is substantial evidence such as the sudden break of illness. than whom there is nothing greater. Finally Before parting. 2737) Thus. If a child refuses to marry someone whom the parents want him/her to marry. then one may determine whether it is the cause of black magic or otherwise. Black magic is regarded to be the cause behind every minor and major illness. no. black magic has nothing to do with the problem. no. one should be very careful in these matters. many people have made it a business. He. However. etc. for in it rests the benefit of this world and the hereafter. Similarly.´ (Recorded by Imam Malik in his al-Muwatta. People have made thousands in this business. the first assumption is that it must be black magic that was carried out by such and such person. those of them which I know and those which I do not know. due to this. Thus. but it is observed that many people experience some type of downfall or illness and quickly jump to the conclusion that somebody has carried out black magic and start pointing fingers at others. one must primarily turn to Allah Most High and resort to the remedies mentioned in the . Do not be too hasty in determining that the cause behind the problem is black magic. virtuous or evil. because more often than not. can even transcend. 5130) The above are just some of the methods in removing the effect of black magic that have been prescribed in the Sunnah.

However. Not only did he pray for the curse of Allah to be against the Bishop and his men. One can read Muhammad¶s basic answers to the Christians in Sura al-e-Imran 3:33-64 The delegation from Najran would not compromise with Muhammad and deny the Son of God or disown his atoning death on the Cross. and invoke the curse of Allah on those who lie!"

Muhammad remembered the Judgment of Yahweh against Korah and his men that occurred during the days of Moses (Numbers.1 A bishop and his scholars wanted to know what kind of a spirit Muhammad had. He accepted essential facts of the life of Christ. Also. Muhammad tried greatly to compromise with the Christians in order to win them for Islam without forsaking the principles of his faith.

Black Magic and evil Jinn both exist in Islam and have been proven by the Quran and Hadith. "On the other hand. Jinn do not generally get involved with the humans unless they are disturbed or powered by the spirits. Good Muslim Jinn tend to live in isolated places where they can worship Allah without disturbance and this can be in the Masjid. Because of their fiery nature there are more evil Jinn hence disbelievers and are also referred to as Shaytaans.. Like Angels they cannot be seen by the norm. The Prophet of Allah (Allah bless him & give him peace) advised the Muslims to pray µAllahumma Inni A¶oothubika Minal Khuboosi Wal Khabaa¶ith¶ (Oh Allah we ask for your protection from the evil male and female Shaytaans) [Hisn ul Hasin]. not on the Muslims themselves.

Ikhlas. Black Magic . µA Jew by the name of Labid ibn Asim who outwardly posed to be a believer (Munafiq) carried out black magic on the Messenger of Allah (Allah bless him & give him peace). There are also other remedies for curing black magic as mentioned in the Ahadith: 'Sayyida A¶isha (Allah be pleased with her) narrates: .

The angel Jibra¶il informed the Messenger of Allah (Allah bless him & give him peace) as to what had occurred and came down with the two Surahs.The best protection from evil Jinn is to not go to any false person but to recite the Ayatul Qursi and the 4 Quls (Surahs.

A clear sign of false money-making Taweez is when set charges are placed and are usually . Dodgy Peers And Shaykhs? Illiteracy and ignorance is the root to all evil. then there is nothing wrong with using them. such as seeking the help of the devil and other such matters. 5130] Also the use of Taweez (Amulets) is permissible as long as it is written in Arabic and contains vers. hence it may consist of utterances of disbelief.

Muslims should remember that Allah is the solution to all their problems and items like Taweez can be true but only when made by truly god fearing people of Taqwa and knowledge who themselves are strict practising Muslims and generally NEVER charge for their service. the consuming of Ajwa dates has been prescribed by the Messenger of Allah (Allah bless him & give him peace) as a remedy for black magic.

However.. it is their lack of knowledge or lack of guidance for their children that has led to the problems.³Whenever the Messenger of Allah (Allah bless him & give him peace) would become ill.. he would recite the Mu¶awwizat (Surah al-Falaq & Surah an-Nas) and blow over himself. 4728] Also. no.

All Muslims should be aware that whilst Black Magic exists Allah and His Messengers have also shown us the remedy for it. A person must be aware that a Peer or Sufi must have four qualities for them to be qualified as a Shaykh: 1. 3. Sunnah and the consensus of the classical scholars. May Allah protect us all from these people. How Do You Suss Out Fake Shaykhs/Peers? The only way to recognise false peers is to recognise the true teachings of Islam and therefore to understand the people who belong to Allah. People who have had experience with such situations have related that the following are among the signs of a person who is possessed by jinn (or Satan): Strong repulsion when hearing Qur aan or Aathaan (call for prayers). You can recognise fake Shaykhs and peers when you yourself have the understanding of Islam or are closely linked to true scholars and therefore can be guided. which is explained above.e he must have the true beliefs of the Quran.. Muslims when faced with problems should first of all check medical opinion and also look at themselves to see whether their upbringing of their children is according to Islam and hence not waste money on false Shaykhs or Peers. especially when Qur aan is recited for the . They cannot be people who sit at home and do not attend the Masjids for prayers as this is an obligation for the Muslims.
