Preface
Genie and Sorcery is the revised and enlarged edition of
Wonder Acts, Magic, and Sorcery published by our Trust in
1973.
In compiling this revised and enlarged edition, materials from
the following have been added: An Article from Ghandni-e-
lslam of November 1944 under the title ‘Islam and Jadoo’, an
article on Hamzaad from daily Millat dated 17-3-75, an article
‘Jinn and Jadoo’ written by Maulana Jauhar Saheb, Traditions
from al-Makaasib, Iran and Safinatul Behaar, Iran.
The compilers are also indebted to Maulana Syed Muhammad
Ja’far Zaidi, Mujtahid, Pesh Imam of Shia Jamia Masjid,
Lahore, and Maulana Syed Ibne Hasan Rizvi, Mujtahid,
Peshnamaz Kharadar Masjid, Karachi, for their valuable
suggestions and their very kindly going through the
manuscript and improving it thereby for which we owe
gratitude.
Sorcery is infidelity. Its existence and that of Jinn is proved by
the verses of Holy Quran. To take shelter of sorcery,
soothsayers, and fortunate tellers is nothing short of weakness
in faith. The Westerners due to their progress and advances in
GENIE & SORCERY  11
the field of material world have turned away their attention
from it but Muslims of India and Pakistan are still after
achieving its knowledge. The names of Muhammad Ali Jinni
and others possessing super-human powers are well-known
and their magical tricks not only make the observers spell-
bound but also awakens the dead belief of the students in
sorcery. Holy Quran in clear words prohibits its followers to
practise sorcery at the same time makes them believe in its
existence. The Holy Prophet (s.a.w.a.) has said:
He who confirms the statement of a soothsayer,
Magician or fortune teller, is a disbeliever of what
has been revealed to the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.a.)
Allah is the Knower of the manifest and of the
Unseen – none else can know the Unseen.
The Holy Prophet (s.a.w.a.) says:
Doa (invoking Allah) is the sure weapon of a
believer. Allah says: (O Muhammad!) Verily I am
nigh; answer the prayer of the supplicant when he
beseeches Me.1
A believer says to another believer: I entrust my affair to Allah.
Allah sees well (His) servants.2 Instead of emptying your
pocket of the hard earned money and filling those of wily
persons, offer sadqah (charity), for charity wards off evil. The
wonder acts are sometimes performed through the agency of
some beings known as Mowakkals. They are good as well bad

1
Surah Baqarah (2), Verse 186
2
Surah Momin (40), Verse 44
12  GENIE & SORCERY
for beneficial or harmful purposes. It is difficult to maintain
once they are under control. The act of subjugating Mowakkals
is not easy and not within the reach of every one. To have faith
in soothsayer, magician, astronomer and in person carrying
out wonder acts is a definite sign of weakness of faith. Results
of black magic are terrific and money earned by magic is not
enjoyed by the magician. In the end to recapitulate the
substance of the preface and of the book as advice to all
Muslims in general and our readers in particular who should
carry out the commandments of the Shariat and remain aloof
from its prohibitions, entrust all your affairs to Allah the
Omnipotent for He is over everything Powerful. There is no
might and power but with Him. Beseech Him. He will surely
answer your prayers for anything that is lawful and that which
will benefit you, seek His guidance and He will guide you.

Publisher’s Note
The Trustees of the Peermahomed Ebrahim Trust have
undertaken to present to the general public good reading
matter, suited to their physical, mental, moral and spiritual
needs. The sensational pornographic reading material that
goes by the name of literary production in the market has
served to vitiate the whole social milieu, so that the restraints
on social conduct are ever-more being relaxed, with resultant
indiscipline in the home atmosphere, no less than in the wider
fields of human activities outside the dome. If such a situation
is allowed to go on flourishing unchecked a veritable hell on
earth is the natural outcome, as we are witnessing in the waves
of crime sweeping over some of the so-called civilised countries
of the West which are already affecting us. ‘Back To Religion’ is
now the watch-word of the saner elements among them. It is
with this sense of perturbation that the trustees have
embarked on the venture of publishing books, which are
calculated to offset the baneful effect of low-grade, anti-social
forms of reading material and to inculcate a taste for and
appreciation of sound and healthful mental food.
No commercialisation is aimed at by this venture, as would be
apparent to even the most superficial observer, from the
standard of prices of the books, which are fixed below the
14  GENIE & SORCERY
actual cost and that too, because free distribution of books
depreciates the worth of the same in the eyes of the general
reading public and are also waste.
The Trustees are conscious of the fact that in spite of all
precautions on their part to avoid errors if something goes
amiss in the form of errors of judgement involuntarily for no
one can be in a position to comprehend the entire field of
knowledge on any subject. Of one thing they can assure the
discreet readers, to wit, that the material for reading is being
presented with the best of intentions for the benefit of the
public and for the pleasure of the Almighty Allah. If any reader
finds anything which contradicts this objective, his
observations in this behalf shall receive the maximum possible
care to redress any remissness that may be pointed out as
having crept into the reading matter with the best of wishes for
the reader, we remain.
GENIE & SORCERY  15

Wonder Acts, Magic and Sorcery


Wonder Acts are no Proof of Perfection
There are many Wonder Acts performed by various scholars. It
is said that we should not be fooled by even the Wonder Acts.
It is not necessary that only the true followers can demonstrate
wonder acts but even the Kafir by putting his spirit in trouble
and by doing certain actions can also demonstrate Wonder
Acts. God will not bless him on the day of judgement but given
the rewards in this very world. The truth is not proved by doing
certain acts (for the worldly gains), by putting exertion on the
spirit and so we should not get fooled by such deeds. It is said
that in some places in India they stand with the wet clay in the
palm with seeds in it in front of the idol. They stand in that
manner for a long time and when the seeds germinate in a
plant then the desire is attained. They think that their idol has
fulfilled their wishes, which is not so. Many stop their breath or
in the whole night breathe just once or twice and hence
practise abstinence. The uncle of the writer of Qasasul Ulema
described an incident as follows:

Wonder Acts by Infidels


“I went for the pilgrimage of Imam Reza (a.s.) and stayed there
for some time. I saw a mendicant who knew the art of Taiul Arz
16  GENIE & SORCERY
(i.e. of covering long distances in short time as travelling fifty
miles on one hour). I became friendly with him and requested
him to teach me that art. He declined. On further insistence he
replied: ‘You cannot learn this wonder act and you are not
capable of it.’ At last on my further insistence he agreed to
teach me that Wonder Act, provided I agreed to abide by two
conditions:
1. That I will not accept Imam Reza (a.s.) as Imam.
2. That I will not pray to the Almighty for one week.
I agreed to abide by the two conditions and then I returned to
my place. I thought to myself that to call an Imam the Imam is
a matter of heart. Although I have agreed not to accept Imam
Reza (a.s.) as the Imam but I still accept him as the Imam in
my heart and that mendicant cannot find out what is in my
heart I will also pray inside my house after closing all doors
and tell that mendicant that I did not pray. Making this
resolve, I started to pray. After ablution that mendicant came
at that moment and said, ‘Did I not say that you are not
capable of learning?’ He then went away and was never seen
again. This shows that by exhibiting such Wonder Acts,
bonafides cannot be proved.
The compiler says that it is not quite improbable that the
mendicant was a devil and for leading him astray that he took
vows from that man. He should have told that mendicant that
he was not a mendicant but devil. I do not want to learn such
Wonder Acts at the cost of my faith.
GENIE & SORCERY  17
Another Story
Another story is narrated to prove that Wonder Acts
manifested by one do not prove him to be right or just. In the
times of Imam Ja’far Sadiq (a.s.) a man came from Hindustan.
He could tell what the other person was hiding in his hands.
This news reached Imam Ja’far e-Sadiq (a.s.) and he
summoned him. Hiding something in his hand, the Imam
asked, ‘Say what is in my hand?’ After thinking and
meditating for some time he replied: ‘Such and such thing is in
your hand.’ His guess was correct and the Imam (a.s.)
confirmed his answer. Then Imam (a.s.) said that once again
he would hide something in his hand saying this the Imam
(a.s.) put his hand out of his window for a while, then pulled it
back and inquired as to what was in his hand?
He mediated and thought but he could not guess what the
Imam had in his hand. After a long time of mediating he said
that on such and such island in India such and such bird has
an egg missing from its nest. Imam Ja’far Sadiq (a.s.) opened
his hand and said: ‘Your guess is correct.’ Imam Ja’far Sadiq
(a.s.) then inquired: ‘From where did you learn this art.’ He
replied: ‘I act contrary to what my soul tells me, and by acting
in this manner I have mastered this art.’
Imam Ja’far Sadiq (a.s.) asked: ‘Does your soul advocate
Islam or Paganism?’ He replied, ‘Paganism.’ Imam (a.s.) said:
‘In this matter why do not you go against your soul?’ He said:
‘I will go against my soul even in this matter and embrace
Islam.’ Saying this he became a Muslim.
18  GENIE & SORCERY
Imam asked him if he could still guess anything? He replied in
negative. Imam Ja’far Sadiq (a.s.) said that, ‘You are right,
because before you embraced Islam you had been blessed
with this art as a reward to your spirit and devotion because
you would not have been rewarded on the day of Judgement.
But now you are a Muslim. God has reserved the requital for
the Day of Judgement and you will be rewarded there so,
now your power is gone.’ Materially he gained the world-fame
and money but spiritually he lost his Hereafter.
Objection has been raised in this connection that why he was
punished by God after he embraced Islam by taking away his
power. He should, on the other hand, have been rewarded by
God and should have increased his power, because it is stated
in Quran that if any one does some good deeds, God awards at
least ten times of that good act in this world as well as much
more in the Hereafter.
To understand the correct position it is necessary to take into
consideration the following facts: -
(1) Every man has been given independence by God to act
rightly or wrongly without any intervention from God,
after he has been given guidance.
(2) The disbelievers are rewarded in this very world for
their good actions (if any); while Muslims are rewarded
both in this world and the Hereafter.
(3) There are some acts which have far-reaching effects and
cannot be re-compensated adequately in this world.
GENIE & SORCERY  19
(4) Men are generally misled by wealth and luxuries of this
world. Hence God deprives most of His obedient
servants from the wealth and luxuries of life in this
world.
This is His favour and not a punishment. He knows best as to
how He should behave with a particular man.
(5) God has created some such powers in man which can be
developed through constant, systematic and regular
practice and man can do wonders after developing these
hidden powers in him. If a man uses them for a good he
deserves good reward, otherwise he is liable to
chastisement.
(6) The above-mentioned infidel also developed his will
power, but instead of utilising it for good purposes, he
used it as amusement, became proud and at last
challenged the Holy Imam (a.s.).
(7) He was deprived of that power after embracing Islam
because there is no place in Islam for such juggleries
and undesirable acts. Islam demands good deeds, purity
of heart and piety from a Muslim. If he performs good
deeds and is pious, he would deserve good reward in
this world and in the Hereafter according to the nature
of his actions.
(8) From worldly point of view he lost his power which did
not benefit him in any way except that he took pride in
his Wonder Act but in the Hereafter he made himself
liable to be thrown in the Hell-fire eternally.
20  GENIE & SORCERY
Reality of Wonder Acts
Allah has given many powers to the soul and a person who
exerts himself and awakens dormant potentialities, can
perform such feats that are quite out of the norm. For example,
some people are gifted with telepathy, i.e. conveying their
thoughts to other. Some can foresee and forecast events of
future. These qualities are rare, but cannot be termed as
spiritual or supernatural So they should not be confused with
Wonder Act or Miracles. Even Wonder Act (Karamat) is not of
the status of Miracle. Wonder Acts are gifts of Allah bestowed
upon persons who suppress the desires of the self to attain a
high spiritual position through devotedness to Allah.
Sometimes Wonder Acts are manifested by persons who are
not at all spiritual or devoted. Such persons gain their power
through some other forces which may be even evil and are
certainly not divine.
Miracles are exclusively for Prophets and Imams who were
Masoomeen (Infallibles) and were manifested only when proof
of Prophethood or Imamate was very necessarily required to
be presented.
Wonder Act as stated above, can occur through evil forces
even, hence it cannot be a proof of righteousness. It may be
sorcery (magic) or influence of some evil spirits. Sometimes it
so happens that a person who is not a Muslim, but exercises
self restraint and suppresses the worldly desires of the self
achieves a state of getting ‘insight’ of the things and events;
this is his worldly reward alone for abstaining from evil and
self restraint and suppression of passion. Hence, to
GENIE & SORCERY  21
differentiate between a true and false Wonder Act, one of the
criteria and touchstone is the conduct and personality of the
performer of Wonder Act. If he is a devout person, following
the True Path of Shariat, the phenomena can be true Wonder
Acts otherwise it can be anything but Karamat (Wonder Act).
As performed by true Ulemas described in the Peermahomed
Ebrahim Trust (Karachi 05-11) in their publication entitled
‘Biographies of the Learned (Ulema)’.

A Story of Supposed Transmigration


One of the Trustees of Peermahomed Ebrahim Trust recalls an
incident which he witnessed in India in I930’s. A friend
mentioned of a Hindu who claimed that at times the Spirit of
Miran Datar, a famous pious Muslim saint whose Shrine is
near Ahmedabad (India), enters his body and then he could
walk on fire. The friend forcefully invited the Trustee to
witness this phenomenon for himself. He did so and told his
friend that it was all false. Because, he argued, how could the
spirit of Miran Datar, who was a pious man in his life time,
enter the body of a Najas person?1

Traps of Tricksters
Many a time people get trapped when they find some forecasts
and predictions come true and follow blindly such persons and

1
There is a difference between Najis and Najas, Najis things can be
purified by ordinary means of purification, while Najas, like dog and
pig cannot be purified by customary treatment of purification even if
repeated for innumerable times. In this case of an unbeliever only
acceptance of Islamic faith could purify the Hmdu
22  GENIE & SORCERY
ultimately ruin themselves materially in this world and
spiritually in the Hereafter. Such predictions and false Wonder
Acts, like stopping trains, throwing away a watch or something
out of the window of moving trains and afterwards producing
the thing back from the pocket of the owner or someone sitting
there, may have been done with the help of evil spirits with
whom they have made contact through evil ways and magic
which are abominable and not worthy of mention.

Salvation is only in Following Shariat


Shias believe that there is one and only one way to achieve the
pleasure and nearness to Allah and it is the way shown by the
Prophet (s.a.w.a.) and his Progeny (a.s.).
Shias are not the only sect in Islam who believes that Salvation
is only through Shariat. A famous Sufi, Shaikh Bahauddin
Zakaria, whose Shrine is at Multan is a source of solace for
many, writes in one of his books that the criterion of a true and
false Sufi is Shariat. If a Sufi is a follower of Shariat-e-
Muhammadi and guides his disciples to do the same, he is a
true Sufi otherwise he is not a Sufi but a disciple of Satan.
GENIE & SORCERY  23

Magic – Sorcery
Magic is perhaps the oldest attempt of Man at Spiritualism
rather pseudo-spiritualism. Religiously speaking, as soon as
man descended on this earth, Allah sent His Messengers to call
him to recognise the Creator.
But recognition of the Deity means complete submission,
without reservations. This is agreeable to the nobler side of the
Soul (Nafs-e-Mutmainnah), as it is inherent in the soul to
recognise Allah submit to Him and worship Him. But there is
another side of the Soul, the baser side (Nafs-e-Ammaarah),
the side which inclines towards Satan. This baser instinct is
easily misled, and is rebellious. Magic is the attempt of this
rebellious side to create a pseudo-spirituality to counteract
divine spirituality. It is reported in Tafseer-e-Ayyaashi and
Qummi on the authority of Hazrat Imam Baqir (a.s.) that after
the death of Hazrat Sulaiman (a.s.), Satan wrote an incantation
and buried it with his throne and misled people that powers of
Hazrat Sulaiman (a.s.) were due to this incantation. Thus were
the people of Sulaiman (a.s.) made to practise Magic
Allah has variously described Magic in Holy Quran.
At one place magic enchantments are called false:
Then to: it (the rod of Moses) swallowed
24  GENIE & SORCERY
(one after another all) that they falsely
demonstrated.1
At another place Allah says that Magic is a wrought plan, a
craft doomed to fail,
Verily they have wrought by a plan of a
sorcerer, and a sorcerer shall not be
successful whatsoever manner (of skill) he
may come from.
Allah has also defined reciting incantations (wozeefo or
mantar) as following devils and that practice of sorcery was
taught to the people by the devils and it is infidelity (kufr).
They followed what the devil recite (falsely)
against Soloman’s Kingdom; not that
Soloman disbelieved but (it was the devils
that disbelieved; sorcery did they teach to
man and what was revealed to the two angels
at Babylon, Harut and Marut.2
At another place Allah says that sorcerers do nothing but
hypnotize, cast a spell or rather create illusion (bewitch the eye
of the people).
So when they cast they bewitched the eyes of
the people and terrified them and produced
them a great enchantment.3

Allah says that sorcery does not profit anyone but gives harm.
The practitioners of sorcery learn that they bargain for tortures
in the life hereafter by courting it.
And they learnt what harmed them and
profited them not; and indeed they knew
that he who bought that (art) had not snared
in the happiness of the Hereafter. And vice
was the price for which they did sell their
selves, had they only known (it).”1
Yet at another place Allah declares that mischief makers will
not benefit by their work, and indeed sorcery is dispelled by
Allah and can do no permanent harm.
Verily God will presently make it naught;
Verity Allah causes not to thrive the work of
mischief-makers.2
Said Moses unto them, ‘Woe unto you: Forge
you not a lie against God; lest He destroys
you with His wrath. And fails he who forgets
a lie.’3
Abdullah bin Umar has quoted the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.a.) as
having said:
There are certain magicians among my followers.
Do not call on them when they are sick, do not offer

Surah Baqarah (2), Verse 102

Surah Yunus (10), Verse 81

Surah Hajj (20), Verse 61
26  GENIE & SORCERY
funeral prayers for them when they die; and do
not greet them with salutations when you happen
to meet them.
When the people enquired as to who were these magicians the
Holy Prophet (s.a.w.a.) replied:
These are those people who commit evil acts and
attribute their evil actions to the Will of God saying
that they did what they were predestined by Allah
to do.
Abdullah bin Abbas quotes the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.a.) as
having said:
No one will stand so much condemned on the Day
of Judgement as the one who associates God with
the evil he does say that he did what he was
predestined by God to do.

Evil Spirits Cannot Harm one who is


Perfect in Faith
Magical phenomena are also scribed to the evil spirits that a
practitioner conquers over and subjugates. In the opinion of
such persons evil spirits are abounding all around us and if one
endeavours he can subjugate one or the other of these spirits
and can accomplish such amazing and astounding feasts. But
one thing is certain and established. These evil spirits cannot
harm one who is perfect in his faith.
GENIE & SORCERY  27
Quranic Verses
Creation of Jinns and Human Beings:
And created not I, the Jinn and the humans
but they may worship Me.1
Hazrat Imam Ja’far Sadiq (a.s.) has said that Allah did not
create men but to know who with proper knowledge,
automatically surrenders himself to Him and without
knowledge adoration could never in the true sense of it be an
adoration. Besides the actual meaning of adoration is not the
performance of any rituals or only the few prescribed formal
prayers recited by the mouth but the actual surrender of the
ego to an individual, disciplining it, to act only in consonance
with the expressed will of the Lord, through abiding with His
prescribed law. The whole life activity of the individual should
be nothing but the fulfilment of the will of the Lord.
This is clearly laid down in 6:l63 – Allah commanded His
Prophet (s.a.w.a.)
Say! ‘Verily my prayer, my sacrifice, my life
and my death (are all only) for Allah, the
Lord of the worlds.’
Every word and deed of the Holy Ahlul Bait (a.s.) was
generated only from ‘love of Allah.’ These Godly lives were sent
on this earth to serve as models for mankind to be followed as
faithfully as possible. If therefore you have ‘love for Allah’ Allah
will protect you from an evil spirit.

What is Sorcery?
Moses said, ‘Nay! Cast you down first.’ Then
Lo! Their cords and their rods seemed to

It means that sorcery is nothing but illusion.

(1) The Holy Prophet (s.a.w.a.) has been reported to have
said:
He who confirms the statement or the word of an
astrologer or of a soothsayer is an infidel –
disbeliever of what has been revealed to the
Prophet Hazrat Muhammad (s.a.w.a.).4

(2) Hazrat Imam Ja’far Sadiq (a.s.) said:
An astrologer is an accursed, soothsayer is an
accursed.1
(3) The Holy Prophet (s.a.w.a.) has said:
He who goes to a sorcerer, soothsayer or some liar
and confirms what he says, is a disbeliever of the
book of Allah revealed to Hazrat Muhammad
(s.a.w.a.).2
(4) Hazrat Ameerul Momineen (a.s.) said:
An astrologer is like a soothsayer - soothsayer is
like a sorcerer. And a sorcerer is like an infidel
whose abode is Hell.3
In the light of the above quoted Quranic verses and Traditions
the following conclusion is drawn.
(1) Jinn and sorcery have their existence.
(2) Satan is a Jinn who is a infidel.
(3) Sorcery is infidelity
(4) Believer of sorcery is a disbeliever of what has been
revealed to the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.a.)
(5) A sorcerer is an infidel whose abode is Hell.

Sorcery
Innocent People Prey of Sorcery
In the present age you will find many who practise sorcery and
thrive on it, their prey being the innocent people. It is therefore
necessary to throw light on this subject so as to save the
innocent class of people from the traps of deceivers.
In this context it may be noted that certain people feel that
there is nothing like sorcery – they deny its existence, though
there is a mention of the same in the Holy Quran. There are
many verses about it. The story of Pharaoh in the Quran and
how it produces its effect, we have mentioned two verses
(2:102 and 20:66) above.
Exegetists of the Holy Quran have written on this subject in
great detail which we feel is not necessary to reproduce in this
small book.

Magic and Sorcery


Imam Raghib Isfahani in his book “Mufradaatul Quran’’
classifies sorcery as under:
(1) To deceive others so as to corrupt the mind, in the
imagination things appear according to the wishes of
the performer – the sorcerer. There is no truth in it
what is seen by the deceived person is not real it is but
an illusion as a result of psychological change: The
performer a juggler is popularly known as Shobdabaaz
and his performance is Shobdabaazi or Nazarbandi –
GENIE & SORCERY  31
bewitchment of the eyes.
(2) To conspire with Satan – evil spirit or an infidel Jinn
and seek help from them so as to have effects on others.
(3) Those actions which change the form or physical nature
e.g. to change man into an ass. There is no reality in
what is seen.
Ibne Aseer in his commentary writes:

First Type:
This was practised by people worshipping seven planets.
Towards them was sent Hazrat Ibrahim (a.s.) to falsify their
belief. They believed that the seven stars (Planets) regulate the
affairs of the Universe and responsible for creating good and
evil actions.
Abu Abdullah Razi in his book ‘Sirrul Makhtoom Fee
Mukhatabush Shamse Wan Nojum’ has discussed the subject
exhaustively. Hazrat Ali (a.s.) in his speech (recorded in Nahjul
Balagha) Sermon No. 77, Vol. I refuting their belief says: ‘It is
infidelism to believe that stars are regulators and effective in
the affairs of Universe.’ This he (a.s.) said when he (a.s.)
decided to march towards Nehrwan to suppress the rising
Kharijites. A person approaching him said: ‘If you set out at
this moment then according to astrology I fear you will not be
successful in your aim.’ Whereupon Ameerul Momineen (a.s.)
said,
Do you think you can tell the hour when a man
goes out and no evil will befall him or can warn of
32  GENIE & SORCERY
the time at which if one goes out harm will accrue?
Whoever testifies to this falsifies the Holy Quran
and becomes unmindful of Allah in achieving his
desired objective and in warding off the
undesirable. You cherish saying this so that he,
who acts on what you say, should praise you
rather than Allah because according to your
misconception you have guided him about the hour
in which he would secure benefit and avoid harm.

Be Aware of Learning of Science of Stars


Then Ameerul Momineen (a.s.) advanced towards the men and
said:
O people! Beware of learning the science of stars
except that with which guidance is sought on land
or sea, because it leads to divining and an
astrologer is a diviner, while the diviner is like the
sorcerer, the sorcerer is like the unbeliever and
unbeliever would be in hell. Get forward in the
name of Allah.
Ibne Aseer then writes:
The Second Type of sorcery comprise of actions performed
under the influence of the faculty of thinking (Imagination)
and will-power. It is said that imagination and will power has
the ability to influence the psyche of others. For instance, a
person moves on the bridge constructed on the land but
hesitates and becomes fearful to walk on a bridge constructed
GENIE & SORCERY  33
on a river. The physicians are unanimous that the person
suffering from epitasis (bleeding from nose) should avoid
seeing articles of red colour and those suffering from epilepsy
should avoid seeing things in rapid circular motion. This is so
because the psyche is under the influence of faculty of thinking
(Imagination). It is for this reason that the wise people are in
full agreement regarding the reality of evil eye. And Razi is
fully justified in arguing on the basis of the correct and
authentic tradition of the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.a.). He said: Evil
eye has reality if there is anything that can alter the destination
it is the evil eye. Razi also says that when you have understood
this fact, we can then say that persons with strong will-power
need neither instruments nor other means in manifesting their
actions. Conversely the souls with weak will-power need
instrumental devices in manifesting their actions.
This fact is known by common observation of the soul which
when overpowers the body gets absorbed by the heavenly
world. That is to say that this soul becomes a spirit (Rooh)
which has a powerful effect on the heavenly world. And when
the soul is weak it is strongly related to the material world and
exercises no effect on the heavenly world. The weakness of the
soul can be removed by decreasing the intake of the food,
severing relations with worldly people and protecting oneself
against pretence and hypocrisy.
In the Third Type of sorcery, help is sought from earthly
souls – the Genie (Philosophers and Mutazalite do not believe
in the existence of genie.) These are of two types: Momin Jinn
and Kafir Jinn. The Kafirs are known as Satans. Razi says that
34  GENIE & SORCERY
it is easy to establish connections with Satans as compared to
heavenly spirits. Both the jinn and heavenly spirits have great
resemblance between themselves.
The experienced and the learned people have observed that
connections can be established with the earthly souls by an
easy programme of actions (a’amal) i.e. amulets (Taveez),
Fateela.1 Privacy during the programme of action is essential.
These actions are collectively known as ‘Spiritualism or
‘control over evil spirits’.2
Masudi in his book ‘Akhbar-uz-Zaman’ has recorded a saying
of Hazrat Ali (a.s.) to the effect.
Anaaq Bint-e-Aadam was first woman who revolted on the
earth and planted seeds of sinfulness and impiety. She began
committing sins openly and subjugated the Satans to make her
devotees. She assigned to them the duty of sorcery. This lady
was the first to lay the foundation of sorcery and the sorcerers
seek help from Satans who are not visible to human beings,
their actions also are not visible. The victims fall a prey to
disbelief and begin to visit the sorcerers who make the needy
busy in actions in clear contravention to Shariat-e-
Muhammadi’. This type of sorcery is the worst and pushes the
needy into a cave of disbelief (Kufr).

Genie and Sorcery Mystics
In some groups of Muslims there is a belief that Sufism with all
its diverse creeds is a means of attainment of nearness to Allah.
In Sufism there are groups who claim certain powers and
attributes for their Sheikhs (Murshids.) Some so-called
Murshids claim that they have gone so ahead on the way of
spirituality that they have attained marefat (cognition) of Allah
that they now need not follow Shariat (precepts and practices
of Islam) like Namaz (Prayers) and fasting, etc. They are false
claimants. An anecdote is related that a man approached a so-
called Sufi (mystic) and expressed a desire to come under his
tutelage. The Sufi said that obedience of the Murshid without
question was the first condition and he would not be able to
fulfil that condition. The man promised to obey him blindly.
The Sufi told him to offer his Namaz with ablution (Wuzu)
performed with urine, for one week and then come to him. He
agreed to the condition thinking how the Sufi would know that
he did not fulfil the condition. When the man went to the Sufi
after one week, he enquired whether he had offered Namaz in
the way he had directed. The man replied in affirmative. The
Sufi got annoyed and told him he had not done so and chased
him out. It can easily he infured that the so called Sufi was a
devil because of his liking dirty things.

Tasawwuf
Tasawwuf or Mysticism arose as a cult in Islam in 1st Century
Hijri with Hasan-e-Basri. Its main aim was to gain spirituality
through prayers and devoutness. There were many divine
36  GENIE & SORCERY
persons who really attained spiritual high positions through
righteous means. These persons were a strong source of spread
of Islam and commanded great respect from masses for their
piety. Some designing people imitating such persons cropped
up through selfish and unrighteous ways and misled and are
still misleading innocent people in the guise of piety and
holiness

Genie and Muwakkals


It has been claimed by mystics that they can control Genie and
Muwakkals – some sorts of beings entrusted with certain
peculiar pious or foul powers and through these media they
could perform acts of wonder pleasant and unpleasant,
pacifying and horrifying, beneficial and harmful. For this
purpose, they make use of Quranic verses and invocations.
Similarly the unbelievers Hindus and aboriginals all over the
world where they exist, who resort to the profession of whitch
craft claim to perform similar acts by chanting ‘mantars’
(spells) and invoking their deities which are devilish in nature;
while the Muwakkals are for good or can be for evil purposes,
the deities are made use of for bad and destructive matters,
just as mystics claim to control the ‘Muwakkals’ the Hindus
claim to control ‘Bair.’
Again, we find the same thing in Greek mythology. There they
have two kinds of gods for good purpose and for evil purpose.
They claim to get their work done – either for the fulfilment of
their desires or for suppressing and subduing their enemies by
incantations and invoking the respective gods.
GENIE & SORCERY  37
In both the Hindu and Greek mythology, one will find strange,
fantastic and purely imaginative forms of their so-called gods
or deities.
If seriously considered and logically analysed, it will be found
that such Wonder Acts are either mere illusions and
hallucination or the psychological effects created by Auto-
suggestion or mass suggestion dubbed on the victims.
Magic, Sorcery, Astrology, and some Occult Sciences are in fact
attempts of Man towards spiritualism but through means
contrary to Divine injunctions.
Allah has denounced Magic as false, wrought plan, a craft and
has positively declared that it will not succeed.
Astrology is based on wrong assumptions. The calculations
made on these assumptions cannot be relied upon. Moreover,
Islam does not allow such attempts to foresee future through
so called Occult Sciences.1
Subjugation of Spirits, Muwakkals, Bair, etc. is also claimed by
some persons, both Muslims and non-Muslims. But on
analysis the most that can be said with certainty is that mostly
these are illusions and psychological effects.

Genie
Muslims of Arabia, Iran and India do believe in the existence
of genie and fairy. Hindus believe in ‘Bhoot’ (male Satan) and
‘Dakan’ (female Satan).

1
See page ??? for details
38  GENIE & SORCERY
Satan are the descendants of nine sons of Iblees who is a jinn,
Satan is made up of nine parts of spirit and one part of lifeless
material. Genies are divided into twelve groups. Three groups
are Muslims. Besides these Jinns and Satans there are fairies.
Man gets mad if he comes under the shadow of a fairy. There is
another type of a fairy known as ‘Biyabaani’2 type.
The evil satanic spirits owing to their hatred towards human
beings penetrate the human bodies. These haunting spirits
harass the haunted persons by making him/her mad and ill or
they demolish or damage the residential premises or take away
the property.
When someone becomes speechless, sleep for an indefinitely
longer period, becomes mad, goes on nodding his head or
moves here and there with uneasiness, the relatives then get
frightened and feel that an evil spirit has penetrated his body.
An expert in exercising the evil spirit is approached who after
asking a few relevant questions, decides the nature of his
ailment, if it is the evil spirit he then has to decide the type of
incantation.
The Holy Quran in clear words prohibits the practice of sorcery
at the same time makes its followers believe in the existence of
it. Though prohibited, yet the ladies and even men take its
shelter to acquire the love of a person, to do away with the
enemy or to create quarrels between two rivals.
For achieving the love or creating quarrels between two rivals,
a drink creating love or hatred is given. For the third purpose
2
Biyabaan means desert
GENIE & SORCERY  39
i.e. do away with the enemy, an image of the enemy is made up
of flour of mash dal (arad). In it are pierced needles and is
reduced to pieces. An evil eye especially of a person from mean
community has evil effects on the person.
The westerners due to their progress and advance in material
field have turned away their attention from sorcery but Indian
and Pakistani Muslims are still after achieving its knowledge.
The names of Muhammad Ali Jinni and Muhammad Chhel
possessing super-human power are well-known and their
magical tricks not only make the observers spell-bound but
awaken the dead belief of the students in sorcery.

Types of Sorcery
There are two types of sorcery. First type is spiritual. Second
type is Satanic – this it prohibited in Islam.
Spiritual type be classified into (1) Earthly (2) Celestial in
nature. It is a science. The learned people in religion learn it
for good purpose. The perfection in celestial type lies in
knowing thoroughly well the Greatest name of Allah i.e. Ism-e-
Azam. Hazrat Sulaiman (a.s.) - the Prophet of Allah was the
first person to possess this knowledge. This name was
engraved on his ring. It was due to this very name of Allah that
he could rule over men, genie, Satan, fairies, atmosphere and
the carnivorous and grazing quadrupeds. His Vizier Asif bin
Barkhia brought before Prophet Sulaiman (a.s.) the throne of
Queen Bilqees studded with diamonds and jewels from Arab
(Yemen) to Jerusalem within a wink of an eye through the
40  GENIE & SORCERY
blessings of the greatest name of Allah (Ism-e-Aazam).

Hamzaad
Aadam and Eve possessed the faculty of thinking when they
were in the Garden (Jannat), Allah commanded them thus:
And O Aadam! Dwell you and your wife in
the garden so eat you to from wherever you
desire but go not you two nigh unto this tree
for then you two will be unjust.1
This verse clearly indicates that both of them possessed in their
brain the faculty of thinking and understanding, wisdom to
accept or refuse a thing
They were unjust to themselves – Allah says:
Get down, some of you (being) the enemies
of others.2
That is to say human psyche has two parts – one working in
the atmosphere of Garden (Jannat) and the other in the
atmosphere of earth. The latter part from religious point of
view is further divided into three sections. Every section is
made up of many smaller sections and every section has the
capacity to perform its function when developed. The first
section of the latter part – the part working in the atmosphere
of earth, is known as Hamzaad. It has many names –
Hamzaad, Saayaa, Asseb, Luna, Muna, Teeta, Meeta, Peechhal
Pehree, Luna Amaari Inka, Chudel, Bhoroot, Parit Mamu,
1
Surah Aa’raaf (7), Verse 19

GENIE & SORCERY  41
Allabux, Daayan, etc.
Hamzaad remains nine inches above the human body. Its arms
are nine inches above the human arms and so on for every
part. This means that a complete human form of light is above
the human being and its name is Hamzaad

How to Subdue Hamzaad


The Second Section of the three sections of the latter part – the
part working in the atmosphere of the earth, is under the
control of Hamzaad – the first section. Hamzaad can be
subdued if the section is made active to play its full role. The
method to make it active is to strengthen the will-power by
concentrating the vision on a point so that the mind remains
focussed there at least for one to two hours. Nothing should
occupy the mind during this period.

Advantages and Disadvantages


By subduing Hamzaad you can employ to your advantages the
satanic forces that are present within us. People can be misled
to your advantages. These advantages are of temporary
duration – they are perishable. The greatest harm of subduing
Hamzaad is that it makes you lose your mind that works in the
atmosphere of garden (Jannat) it loses its functions No harm
other than this could be greater. Secondly the human psyche
always remains confused and perplexed – it is a prey to evil
promptings of Satan. His is a dirty psyche that feels happy and
pleased by harming others. In the end there is no advantage
but only disadvantage.
42  GENIE & SORCERY
Techniques for Nullification of Sorcery
(a) Recitation of certain words, beautiful names of Allah,
names of Prophets of Allah, Quranic chapters and
verses. This is compulsory for those who can recite with
correct pronunciations. Refer to Peer Mahomed
Ebrahim Trust Publication Doa, Vol. I for beautiful
names of Allah; Vols. II, III, IV and V will also help in
this regard.
(b) Amulets: This is for those who do not know recitations
or they know it but are liable to make mistakes in
pronunciations.
(c) Exorcising: The haunting spirit is expelled from the
body by an exorcist.1
(1) Incantation of Prophet Sulaiman’s name dispels the evil
spirit from the body.
(2) Ihtam Qarshat and Ihtam Fazshat are the names of two
Jinn which are recited (differently) to court madness or
to remove it.
(3) The name of Prophets of Allah have miraculous effects
hidden in them and in those of certain learned godly
persons.
(4) Chapters, Verses and words of the Holy Quran have
miraculous effects.
(5) Beautiful names of Allah: These are of two types.

1

GENIE & SORCERY  43
(a) Awe-inspiring
(b) Those, manifesting Divine mercy.
Al-Khafeezo – the Abaser; al-Aadelo – Equitable, al-Qahhaaro
– The Dominant. These are awe-inspiring names of Allah.
Their recitation creates dreadful and frightening scenes.
Ar-Rahmano – The Merciful, Ar-Rahimo – The
Compassionate, al-Ghaffaaro – The Forgiver, are names
manifesting Divine Mercy. Recitation of these names causes
the angels appear in heart-pleasing and beautiful faces and
forms.
It is difficult to achieve perfection in the awe-inspiring names
of Allah but the incantation of those names more and quickly
effective in achieving, the desired wants.
Al-Wadoodo is Allah’s name manifesting Divine Mercy. Its
recitation as ‘Yaa Wadoodo’ will make certain spirits and jinn
obedient to the incantator for good purpose
Al-Jabbaaro is Allah’s awe-inspiring name. Recitation of this
beautiful name of Allah as Yaa Jabbaaro over-powers certain
spirits and Jinn for bad purpose.
(6) Words Quranic verses and chapters.
You can bring the atmosphere under your control by
incantation of some particulars words, verses of the Holy
Quran and certain beautiful names of Allah. With the
recitation of the same, you can rule, over power people,
44  GENIE & SORCERY
serpents, scorpion, etc.1
The scorpion loses its power of biting by the recitation of 15th
and 16th verses of Chapter At-Taareq (No. 86) These verses are:
Verily scheme they (against the truth) a
scheme and I too do a scheme.
Amulet of these two verses written in occult numerical figures
in particular arrangement and in a particular shape is a means
of blessings to the one who wears it on his person.
(7) Ibne Khaldoon referring to ‘Muslim’ an expert in occult
knowledge says. The words ‘Tamaghus, Ba’aadaan, Yaswaad,
Vaghdaas, Nufnaa, Ghaadus, have miraculous power hidden in
them. Incantation of these words with full concentration after
a bath and before going to bed in clean clothes guides the
incantator in his dream as to what he should do to achieve his
object. Muslim further says that this incantation makes a
personality appear in the vision of the incantator It is this
personality who guides him as to the course of action he should
adopt to achieve his objective. Ibne Khaldoon states that he
was guided in his vision with wonderful instructions to out of
the difficult situation of his life. In order to get the desired and
beneficial effects of those miraculous words, the incantator has
to abstain from eating some articles, of food. These are animal
products like, meat, milk, ghee, butter, animal fat, eggs and all
articles inciting temper and sex.

Before treating the afflicted through an Aamil2 - please see that
you approach the right person – we hereunder reproduce the
experience of a businessman.
A businessman suffered heavy losses and his business was
going down. He therefore approached an Alim who after some
time told him that black Magic has been dug in his country
house in a particular room which he pointed out and unless
this is removed he will continue to suffer heavy losses.
Businessman told Alim to accompany him and help to remove
the black Magic and accordingly a trip was arranged and when
the place was dug black Magic containing Kuja (drinking pot)
with some papers written were removed to the utter surprise of
businessman. Agreed sum amounting to thousands of rupees
were paid to him.
Businessman thought that his difficulties would be over but his
business as usual went down and there was no improvement.
The above fact was narrated by an Alim that going to persons
of such means will never be beneficial.
That Alim had jinn in his control who used to go in advance
and arrange things according to his instructions and that Alim
instructed Jinn to dig all such things to create confidence in his
clients. That Alim is now alive and he is fabulously rich but
ultimately he will go to hell and burn eternally.

What a Muslim Should do?
We have clearly shown most of the persons claiming to ward
off effects of magic are either false or designing persons who
have only one object in their minds to extort money in the
name of curing persons from the evil effects of magic. In fact
they fleece innocent people. People are strongly advised not to
fall prey to such tricksters and quacks. Authenticity of Taweez
and Doas given by them is not known. Our Holy Prophet
(s.a.w.a.) and the Imams have taught us many Doas which if
recited as prescribed, will surely benefit the sufferer of Magic –

The following Doa is from Sahifa-e-Kamela, of Imam Zainul
Abedeen (a.s.). This Doa is for safety from all ills, witchcrafts,
diseases and oppression. When needed, it may be recited after
any wajib prayer daily till the affliction is removed. It is better
to keep one fixed for its recitation, e.g. if one starts to recite
after Morning Prayer till the purpose is served, i.e. the
affliction is removed or danger has passed, one should offer

on him, and Your mercy and favours on him and his Aal
(progeny) – and tombs of the Aal (progeny) of Your Prophet,
peace be on them, as long as You keep me alive, in my present
year and every future year.
And let this be accepted, approved, remembered by You and
stored up by You.
And let my tongue utter Your praise, Your thanks, Your
remembrance and a handsome eulogy upon you.
And enlarge my mind for receiving direction (for the
acceptance) of Your faith.
And protect me and my offspring from the Devil, the one who
was driven away with stones, and from the mischief of
venomous and stinging creatures and vulgar and the mean and
from the mischief of every obstinate devil, and from the
mischief of every malicious king, and from the mischief of the

small, the nigh and the distant and from the mischief of
everyone of the genie or mankind, who insisted upon fighting

against Your Prophet and the people of his house; and from the
evil of every creature that moves on the earth, and whose
forelock is held by You, Verily! You are on the right path.
O Lord! Bless Muhammad and his Aal (progeny), and whoever
intends to wrong me, turn him away from me and ward off
from me his device, and repel from me his evil, and put (the
noose of) his fraud around his own neck, and place before him
a barrier till You make blind his eyes from seeing me, and
deafen his ears that he may not hear of me, and lock up his
mind when about to think of me, and render his tongue dumb
concerning me and crush his head, disgrace his dignity, and
humble his neck, and demolish his greatness, and render me
safe from all his mischief, evil, backbiting, tale bearing,
slander, envy, malice, toils, traps and his foot soldiers and
cavalry.
Verily, You are possessor of glory and power!
O Allah! Send Your blessings on Muhammad and his progeny.

Techniques of overpowering the evil


spirits or subduing them or genie
The techniques of subduing or overpowering the evil spirits or
genie could be learnt from Bhuvas or aamils. These persons are
expert in this art. He who wants to learn it should maintain
perfect (religious) cleanliness and purity. For internal purity
one has to observe fasts for a number of days and recite certain
doas and beautiful names of Allah. He has to adhere certain
restrictions in his daily food and learn certain numbers of
occult nature. He has to study the effects of stars and has to
pass most of his time in recitations of religious nature. It is
usually the Syed and religiously learned people who learn the
art of exorcizing the evil spirits.
It is usually the programme of forty days of incantation of
prescribed words or verses or chapters of the Holy Quran in
order to become a qualified Aamil. The prescribed words or
verses or chapters of the Holy Quran are to be recited daily at a
fixed clean and isolated place. The number of daily recitations
is also fixed. If someday the fixed time is missed the
programme is to be restarted afresh and to be reckoned as the
first day. Benzoin and other types of incense are to be ignited
at the time of incantation to make the surrounding fragrant.
He should keep himself and his clothes pure and clean. The
jinn who come under the control of the prescribed recitation
try to prevent the completion of the programme of forty days
112  GENIE & SORCERY
by appearing before the incantator in a very dreadful and
frightening figure. The incantator gets mad if he gets
frightened and gives up the incantation. He passes the
rest of the life in madness or gets affected by paralysis
or some other ailment which makes him disabled for
the rest of his life no medicine or treatment can cure
him of his disability.
The jinn try some other devices to enable them to break the
programme if the incantator possess strong will power.

Such a student spiritualist states his


experience thus:
Once I was busy incantating for achieving perfection in the art
of overpowering the bites of poisonous insects and animals. I
suddenly saw my father being brought to me in shackles and
fetters by my father’s dead enemy. I then saw that the enemy
was commanding my father to bend at the knees. When he did
so, the enemy look out his sword from the scabbard to behead
my old father. At that time my father conjured me to save his
life for the sake of the parental love. My father further said that
the enemy entered his house and when he (my father) shouted
for help, he was tied and brought before me.
I was on the verge of giving up my incantation and was ready
to come out of the circle within which I was sitting busy
reciting the incantation to save my old father. But all of a
sudden it struck me and I understood the device of the jinn. I
therefore turned my attention away from that dreadful scene I
GENIE & SORCERY  113
became unmindful of it and got again busy with my
incantation. The jinn accepting the defeat disappeared.
The same jinn tried another device, I felt that the whole house
where I was busy with my programme, was oscillating
sidewards and that it would fall down to crush me. But the jinn
did not succeed in his device and allowed me to complete my
programme peacefully.
The Aamil recites the prescribed formula on piece of sugar and
gives it to eat to the one beaten by a serpent or a rabid dog.
This treatment has cured many.

Satanic Sorcery
Satanic sorcery popularly known as earthly or infernal sorcery
is played through the agency of disbelieving jinn known as
Satan.
They are Kafir jinn. Student desirous of learning this art has to
maintain internal and external uncleanliness and impurity and
has to act similarly in his behaviour just as the seeker of
heavenly and spiritual knowledge has to maintain religious
purity and cleanliness both of body and mind. The incantator
loses all the power achieved through earthly and infernal
(satanic) knowledge, should he remain clean and pure even for
a moment. He takes no bath, applies no fragrance, offers no
prayers and performs no deed of virtue and goodness.

The Method to Subdue Satan is Full of


Impurity and Fright
During the month of Diwali, in the dark half of the month of
114  GENIE & SORCERY
Katric the first month of Hindu year and especially on the
night of 14th of the dark half of the month of Asso (last month
of Hindu year) when dirty jinn (Satan) are all allowed to visit
their previous abodes, the seeker of this knowledge dons
dirtiest types of clothes, applies bad smelling oil on the body
and takes with him provisions of eatables which are unlawful a
sharp knife and gugal (a foul smelling gum) for igniting at the
time of incantation to subdue the Satan. He goes to a place of
cremation of the city, graveyard of mean community or of
those given the Capital punishment. There he incantates and
draws a circle wherein he sits for further recitation keeping
with him the knife ready. As he incantates he goes on throwing
black mung. The incantator asks the devil when they present
themselves before him on whose invitation they appear, as to
what they (devils) would like to eat. He goes on throwing
pieces of meat which he had brought with him, if the devils
demand it. The incantator has to cut a piece of flesh from his
thigh, should one of these devils demand the human flesh. In
case he fails to supply him with human flesh the incantator
himself becomes a morsel for the devil. In case of compliance,
the devil remains obedient to him for one year and helps him
in his black deeds.
At times the incantator does not want to risk his life or cut a
piece of flesh from his thigh. It is for this reason that he takes
with him his pupil or a friend. When the devil demands human
flesh he offers the sacrifice of his companion with the
condition that the devil should not even touch the companion
till he reaches his home. The devil accepts the condition. After
GENIE & SORCERY  115
the incantator completes incantation, the devil follows his prey
to his house. He eats his liver and kills him. The following
morning he is found dead with a blood vomit.

Islam Advises to Remain Aloof from Such


Dirty and Filthy Things
Islam advises its followers to remain clean and pure and to
have explicit faith in the All-Powerful Omnipotent Allah. It
also advises them to remain aloof from such dirty and filthy
things. Quran prohibits playing sorcery. It is difficult to gain
perfection in satanic knowledge for a person as it is beyond the
reach of most people, most of whom are entangled in worldly
anxieties. They therefore hardly can spare time for it.
Moreover there are greater chances of failures than those of
success. The wise perfects his religious knowledge and
passes an ideal life, without going into all these
irreligious and devilish things resulting in grave
consequences. In religion lies happiness and pleasure
for the soul.

Scientific Explanation
Scientifically such phenomena of magic and sorcery have not
yet been explained and science is at a loss to understand them.
Whether in future it will be able to do so remains to be seen.

Man Possesses Many Potentials and


Capacities
One explanation has however been given and apart from
religious and traditional point of view is a more hypothesis to
116  GENIE & SORCERY
work on. It is as follows:
Scientists are of the opinion that Man possesses many
potential capabilities of which even he himself is unaware.
According to them, apart from five senses of Taste, Touch,
Hearing, Smell and Sight, there are other senses in the Man
which lie dormant. It seems probable because we see sometime
a man with such capabilities which seem extraordinary. It is
also a common experience that some people can foresee what
is going to happen in near future. As one advances in age he
develops a capability of judging characters intuitively, though
he himself cannot offer any rational reason why he judges one
as honest or dishonest even if he is proved correct by later
experience.
Intuition itself is a power which varies from person to person
and is quite apart from the five senses
Sometimes one becomes averse to some person whom he has
never seen before and sometimes likes without any rational
explanation. All this goes to show that there are some powers
in man that can be harnessed and put to work out of ordinary.
People seeing such abnormal actions call them magic. If ever
these phenomena are understood they may be promoted to the
status of Science.
So it can be one explanation of magic that its feats are
accomplished by harnessing such dormant powers of soul
intentionally or consciously or subconsciously.

Astrology and Astronomy
Astronomy is a branch of science which deals with physical
nature of cosmic bodies in heavens and universe as a whole.
Like other natural sciences it has two aspects, abstract and
applied. Abstract Astronomy deals with theoretical side-origin
of universe, its nature, chemical and physical; speculation on
optimum conditions for existence of life in different parts of
universe, etc. etc.
Applied side of the Astronomy deals with the physical
observation of the structure of different cosmic bodies through
Telescopes, Radio Telescopes space exploration or even actual
landing on celestial bodies. This last mode of exploration has
yet been possible in case of Moon only.

Astrology is Pure Speculation


Astrology on the other hand is pure speculative in nature and
is mysticism of a sort. The first premise put forth by its
supporters is that stars and planets affect the life of people of
this earth. If given a penetrating thought, it becomes obvious
that Astrology dates back to the period when people thought
the starts to be gods. Assyrians Babylonians and Egyptians did
much to ‘perfect’ calculations based on the movement of
celestial bodies.
The basis of this thought, the same premise that stars, gods or
no gods do affect the lives of mortals, persists in this 20th
century, even though the world has changed. Now modern
Astrologers talk about Radiation, Magnetic waves, etc. and
118  GENIE & SORCERY
harp on the same strings that stars do affect the fortunes of
people. The bases of calculation remain the same as worked
out five or six thousand years ago. Astrologers think that all
planets, 7 in number (now nine) move along a belt called
Zodiac. This Zodiac is divided in 12 Houses or ‘Burooj’. Every
House has distinctive characteristics and has direct link with
some aspect of human life, wealth, poverty, children, etc. These
stars have been arbitrarily given good and bad attributes.
Astrologers have certain calculations according to which they
judge a person to belong to some House and predict the main
events of his life on a sheet which is called Horoscope.

Should Astrology be Relied Upon? Or it is


at all Beneficial to Know Future
Whether it should be relied upon or not or it serves any useful
purpose? People go after finding out a true Astrologer by
spending a lot of money but let us examine to what purpose.
Assuming that one finds out a true Astrologer who correctly
tells future, what benefit or loss one derives there from? If the
Astrologer forecasts for one that he would become very big
person or millionaire within 2 to 5 years or any period named,
of course this would be very good news but the anxiety and
suspense it would bring, would be terrible and may make the
person very unhappy and even drive him mad. He, in
anticipation of acquiring position and/or riches may incur
debts which may lead him to trouble if the prophecy does not
come true or is delayed. In another way if the prophecy is for
anything bad, i.e. any calamity, financial or physical i.e.
GENIE & SORCERY  119
accident within certain period, the person would become
unhappy in advance and in trying to avert, which cannot be
averted if destined, goes into lot of expenses and anxiety which
may also drive him mad besides making him unhappy. It is
argued that if one would come to know in advance of any
calamity he could do some Sadaqa (Charity).1 It is true but why
Sadaqa should not be given without anticipating any calamity.

Other Methods of Foreseeing Future


Islam does not favour the foreseeing of future. It is totally
forbidden to take augury or omen through any medium and
believe in it.
The reason for it being forbidden is obvious. If any one
presages or comes to know anyhow about future happenings
he will either try to forestall, prevent or hasten the same
according to his whim, fancy or liking. If he comes to know
about coming of any misfortune he will try to avoid it through
that calamity might be one, which if happened would have
warded off a greater calamity in store for him. By avoiding that
lesser evil he might expose himself to that greater calamity
about which he knew nothing.

An Anecdote from Masnavi Maulana


Roomi
Maulana Jalaluddin Roomi has narrated a story in his great
Masnavi. It runs as follows:
A man requested the Prophet of his time to pray to Allah to
1
Sadqa Bala Rad –Calamity can be averted by giving Sadaqa
120  GENIE & SORCERY
grant him power of understanding the sounds (dialects) of all
the animals. The Prophet tried to dissuade him from it saying
that what Allah has hidden from His creatures is not to be
discovered, as there may be harm in it. The man insisted. On
the request of the Prophet, Allah gave that man the power he
sought. On his return, he heard his dog complaining to his cock
that he did not get enough food. The cock replied that he
should not worry as on the following day a goat belonging to
his master would die and the dog would have his fill. On
hearing this, the man disposed off the goat and thus prevented
the loss. Next day he overheard the dog complaining and
calling the cock a liar. The cock replied that he was not a liar.
The goat did die but the master was shrewd and sold off the
goat which died in the house of the new owner. But the dog
was not to worry as now the turn was that of his horse. The
man at once got rid of the horse in similar manner. Then the
turn of his camel and slave came. When the slave also died in
the house of his new owner, the dog said to the cock that it was
certainly a liar, as all his forecasts proved untrue. The cock
replied that it was not a liar. The master acted foolishly. In fact
there were two men in that town and it was ordained by Allah
that one of them was to die and for the man owing all these
things was to suffer slight monetary loss by the death of his pet
goat. He averted that loss by selling it. Then his horse was to
die as it was to be that he suffered a loss. He averted that loss
too by disposing off his horse, and so was the case of camel and
the slave. The man averted those losses by getting rid of them.
On the other hand the man whose time was up unconsciously
GENIE & SORCERY  121
bought all those things which were to die by the will of Allah
and sustained monetary losses one after the other. So the fates
changed. The man who was to die would now live and the man
who tried to change his fate was to die on the following day.
The moral of this story, states Maulana Roomi, is that one
should not try to find out what is in store for him in future. If it
were the will of Allah to give the power of foreseeing future, He
would have bestowed upon him this power. But in some
matters ignorance is bliss.

So-Called Diviners Have Their Paid Agents


The so-called diviners have their paid agents who indirectly
canvass for them and know the desires of the victims and tell
them so that when the victims approach them for the solution
of their difficulties they foretell them and secure their
confidence whereby to squeeze them. One instance may here
be quoted that a dismissed Railway Station Master who knew
morse signalling, gathered some accomplices and taught them
morse code and he himself made his abode on a tree. These
accomplices used to sing Bhajans accompanied by tick tick of
morse signalling by which they informed him the desire of the
victims visiting from whom they first used to find out their
desires. Before the victims disclosed their desires he used to
tell them their desires. The victims thus had confidence in him
and thus allowed themselves to be fleeced. Once a Station
Master who also knew morse signalling visited and when the
accomplices started informing him morse signalling he
understood and he was exposed with disgrace.
122  GENIE & SORCERY
But in fact, our Imams (a.s.) have taught many Doas for each
and every such need.
Safety from tyrants and enemies; for getting back lost things
and persons; for release from prison; for love between husband
and wife; for Marriage Proposal; for making turbulent wife
obedient; for getting a child for safety of Pregnancy; for
avoiding premature birth or abortion; for easy delivery of
child; for avoiding early death of children; for ailments of
children, such as weaning, weeping and other diseases; for
wealth and prosperity; for removing poverty and worries.
Readers are advised to see books Doa in 5 Volumes, published
by Peermahomed Ebrahim Trust, Karachi - 05-11. They will
find Doas for practically every legitimate purpose in these
Volumes. In Volume No. V there are Merits of Surahs of the
Holy Quran. These merits will tell the reader when and how a
surah could be recited for certain purposes.
Readers may also see Mafatihul Jinaan, a collection of Doas
and supplications. It is available in Urdu Language, with book-
sellers.

Seeking Help of Tricksters is a Sign


of Weak Faith
Seeing Faal is Haraam
Many a weak-minded people, especially women, being the
victims of their own whims consider every evil even or
misfortune an insinuous act of their enemies on them.
Consequently, to find its solution they revert to so-called
GENIE & SORCERY  123
Palmists, Astrologers diviners and others who claim to (find
out divine things through spiritual powers) by seeing ‘Faal’.
Most of these persons being very shrewd and keen observers of
human nature, describe the so-called divination in cautious,
obscure and ambiguous terminology, yet so cleverly that the
people approaching them unconsciously become their prey.
Such diviners are only vile money grabbers. They live as
parasites on simple minded people. What is the sense in
opening the ‘Faal’ to know who has done this or that? Who is
the cause of mischief? Or for that purpose, what is in store for
them in future? Besides this, seeing ‘Faal’ is haraam
(prohibited) in Islam.

Beware You do not Become


Unbeliever (Kafir) in Allah
What Hazrat Ali (a.s.) said About
Presaging
Ameerul Momineen (a.s.) said on the occasion:
Do you think you can tell the hour when a man goes
out and no evil will befall him or can warn of the
time at which one goes out and harm will accrue?
Whoever testifies to this falsifies the Quran and
becomes unmindful of Allah in achieving his desired
objective and in warding off the undesirable... O
people! Beware of learning the Science of Stars
except that with which guidance is sought on land or
sea, because it heads to divining and an astrologer
124  GENIE & SORCERY
is a diviner, while the diviner is like the sorcerer, the
sorcerer is like the unbeliever and the unbeliever is
kafir and would be in Hell.
In explaining the above sermon Mufti Ja’far Husain Sahib
writes that accepting the view or divination is against Quran in
which Allah says:
Say; None (either) in the heavens or in the
earth knows the Unseen save God.1
Secondly that a diviner misconceives that he can know his
benefit or harm through knowing future. So instead of
turning to Allah in prayer for warding off calamity
and seeking his help or for offering thanks for the
bounties of Allah he becomes unduly self-reliant and
indifferent to religion and Allah. This is a sort of
heresy, and such person soon losses hope in Allah.
Thirdly if he proves true and succeeds in his objective he would
praise his knowledge and himself and not Allah. He would
expect that everybody who is ‘benefited’ through his
‘knowledge’ would praise him rather than Allah. This thought
is in fact a spelling of heresy and atheism. Hence, the
prohibition, strict and total, of all sorts and forms of fore-
telling, divination, astrology and prediction. Allah may protect
us from falling in this trap of being unbeliever i.e. kafirs.

Imam Ja’far Sadiq (a.s.) on the subject


(1) Ibne Idrees in his book ‘Saraaer’ has recorded the

1
Surah Naml (27), Verse 75
GENIE & SORCERY  125
following narration of Hasheem from the book
Mashkatul Mashaaekh written by Ibne Mohaob.
Hasheem says: -
I approached Hazrat Ja’far Sadiq (a.s.) and said to him that
there lived a man on our island, who reveals to us that the
stolen goods are with such and such man; similarly he informs
us about such other unknown matters. Imam Ja’far Sadiq (a.s.)
replied:
The Holy Prophet (s.a.w.a.) has said the one who
goes to ask about anything about from a magician,
soothsayer, or a liar and believes in what he says
certainly becomes an infidel and denier of all the
Heavenly Scriptures revealed by Allah.1
(2) This clearly shows that one should never approach the
fortune teller, palmists, astrologers and such others who
claim to have power to peep in future and to know the
secret as well as hidden matters.
(3) Why is it that the people are caught in the shares of such
tricksters and quacks? The answer is very simple. They
have lack of faith, trust and reliance in the Omnipotent
Allah – Who is the Supreme Protector of His creatures.
They should entrust themselves body and soul to Allah
the Omniscient.
(4) Mark what a believer among the people of Pharaoh says
to another believer: -
1
Tahqeequl Mateen, Urdu Translation of Haqqul Yaqeen by Allama
Majlisi (a.r.)
126  GENIE & SORCERY
And you shall remember what I say to you
and I Entrust my affair to God. God sees well
(His) servants.2
(5) Try this infallible prescription of ‘Entrusting your affairs
to Allah’ with full confidence and see for yourself the
most wonderful effect. It will save your precious time, it
will relieve you from unnecessary anxieties and worries,
it will protect you from running from pillar to post in
search of pseudo diviners, the tricksters, the quacks, the
money grabbers it will unfailingly offer you the most
required comfort, solace and peace of mind.
(6) Instead of going to and begging from the parasites in
the garb of religion, why not involve implore and
supplicate Allah the Omnipresent Who is sure to come
to your succour and rescue: Said the Holy Prophet
(s.a.w.a.)
Doa (supplication) is the sure weapon of a believer.
(7) Instead of emptying your pockets of your hard earned
money and filling pockets of the vile money grabber,
why do not you give in ‘Sadaqa’ charity? Said the Holy
Prophet (s.a.w.a.)
Charity wards off evil.
(8) Do not you know what Allah says in His Holy Book
Quran?
Effaces out God whatever He pleases and
2
Surah Yunus (10), Verse 4
GENIE & SORCERY  127
confirms He (similarly) and with Him is the
Mother (Basic source) of the Book.

Terrible End of Black Magic Doers


Janab Hasan Askari Ja’fari who translated the Nahjul Balagha
in English told one of the Trustees of Peermahomed Ebrahim
Trust in 1950s in Kazmain Sharif that members of a family
were fighting legal cases in court and one group used to lose all
cases. This group having no hope of winning in court contacted
a Black Magic doer and gave him Rs. 10,000/- to kill the
members of the winning group. No sooner he started his Black
Magic he got stung by a scorpion and suffered torture. Again
he started and fell fracturing his leg. When again he started
somebody warned him in the dream that he would not be
successful as the other side had something superior for its
protection on which he returned Rs. 10,000/- and tried to
make friendship with the other side to know what superior
thing they had. After making close friendship he found out that
their mother used to pray daily Doa No. 23 for Aafeyat
(protection) from Saheefa-e-Kamela by Hazrat Imam Zainul
Abedeen (a.s.). Peermahomed Ebrahim Trust, Karachi - 05-11
has printed this book in English which contains this and many
effective Doa’s for different desires.
He narrated another incident also in which the effect of
recitation of this Doa No. 23 had on the doer of Black Magic
that he was attacked by buffalo and ultimately he became mad
and dashed his head against a tree and got seriously injured.
128  GENIE & SORCERY
In many instances the Black Magic doer and those who pay for
making Black Magic suffer terribly in this world in as much as
they suffer physically that it would be unbearable to see their
suffering. Besides this they lose their ill-gotten money and die
pauper. Of course much more terrible punishment awaits them
in the Hereafter.
It is therefore best and safest to rely on Allah through His
chosen 14 Masoomeem who left for us several Doas etc. for our
guidance to obtain solution of our difficulties and fulfilment of
our desires with safety and success here and in the Hereafter.

Magicians Horrible End


What is the final fate of those who indulge in witchcraft,
Sorcery, Black Magic and such other ignoble abominable and
mean works? In the life hereafter there is disgracing, debasing
and painful punishment which is unbearable. But even in their
lives what do they get?
These wicked and vile persons make some worldly fans in
shape of money, etc. temporarily but ultimately face the state
of destitution and poverty worse than those of the real beggars.
They run from pillar to post to get something to fill their belly
– the hellish pit.
They have to face many a hardship, misery and wretchedness.
They get physically deformed-blind, lame, maim, bent like
bows, and distorted face features-utterly helpless.
Lie and falsehood, cheating and receiving, cunningness and
viciousness become their second nature with them. They are
GENIE & SORCERY  129
always after simple victims and grab at everything from them
by their cunningness and foul, objectionable and questionable
means.
They are hated by all and liked by none.
In their old age, they become totally infirm and weak both in
mind and physique. They are at the mercy of others.
As a matter of fact ill-gotten money can never benefit its
earner. It has a tendency to desert the person who sacrifices his
tranquillity, peace of mind and faith in order to acquire it. This
rule does not confine to the money earned through witchcraft
and sorcery, but holds good to an ill-gotten wealth, be it by
usury, cheating, bribery, usurpation, speculation, betting, etc.
Such wealth cannot remain with its acquirer. It is a matter of
common observation that such wealth is either spent in
unethical and immoved pursuits like gambling, debauchery
and such other things or on sickness, illness of themselves and
their near and dear ones. In short, as is such wealth earned so
it is spent. Moreover, if children are brought up on such
money, they become generally speaking, unruly and run out of
hands. They no longer respect their parents, becomes spend
thrift and pass their time in such activities.
It is said that obnoxious diseases overtake them, the people
flee from them. The worms germinate in their bodies giving
out stinking unbearable odour. None can approach them.
They, than long to die but death seem to be farthest off. They
wriggle and writhe in extreme pain. There is no peace of mind
for them. Their last moment plight sends shudders and
130  GENIE & SORCERY
creepers to the viewers. They wish they were dead, but they
suffer agonies of death for long time. They do not have
conscience even to repent for their past misdeeds and finally
die an ignoble death none pitying them, none-showing any
mercy for them, none feeling sorrow-none weeping.
Let us pray to Allah that He may save us from these wicked
people through the intercession of fourteen infallibles (a.s.)
(Chardah Masoomeen) and keep us on the Right Path.
Verily, Allah puts His servants due to their bad deeds on trial
by decreasing the production of fruits, by stopping
benedictions and by sealing the treasures of virtues so that the
penitent may seek penitence, abstainer may abstain,
rememberer of Allah may remember Him and the solicitor of
lesson may learn.
