SIGNS OF SORCERY - ᭰

They followed what the evil ones gave out (falsely) against the power
of Solomon: The disbelievers were... but the evil ones, teaching
men Magic... They learned from them the means to sow discord
between man and wife. But they could not thus harm anyone except
by Allaah’s permission... [Al-Qur’an, 2:102]
“If anyone resorts to a diviner and believes in what he says, he has nothing to do with
what has been sent down to Muhammad.” [Hadith Narrated by Abu Dawud]
The most important sign by way of differentiating between a sorcerer
and righteous exorciser is: A Sorcerer asks for your and your mother’s
name. This is absolute proof of sorcery. No righteous exorciser will ever
ask for your mother’s name. Their apparent reason for asking maternal
name is that in the spiritual realm, the method of identification revolves
around the mother, as opposed to the human method wherein children are
recognized through fatherly lineage. Hence, women at large have been held
synonymous with bad omens, exactly the kind of idea Islam’s Prophet
spoke against
[1]
. So if a person asks for your name, or more significantly
your mother’s name then know he is a sorcerer no matter how luminous
(ᑴ.ᑊ) his face, or how long his beard, might be!
A Sorcerer more than often asks for your personal traces such as;
clothing, cap, handkerchief, shoes, ring, hair, nails; clear sign the person
deals in sorcery. And this method was used by Lubaid b. A’sam on the
Prophet, who was bewitched via his comb and hair
[2]
, a common method
used by sorcerers.
Magicians use the ‘power of numbers’ as they see it a potent mean to
compel spirits to do their dirty work. The magician might tell you to recite
something (often holy names) for a specific number of time, or do such
and such in relation to some specified numerals like 3, 7, 9 or like thus.
Sorcerers at time ask for a specified sacrifice of animals, like say a black
rooster or black dog i.e. un-common sacrifices under categorical
instructions to throw it at else’s doorstep, or perhaps bury it some place,
and he might also use it’s blood, bones, skull for exorcism.
Sorcerer may give you stuff like threads, kalavas, inscribed incantations,
rings, talisman, amulets, piece of clothing, paper to wear or dip in water (for
drink or bath), to keep under cushion, or for hanging, perhaps even to burn
and inhale it’s smoke.
Magicians can seek of you to do things as opposed to normal, such as
walking backwards, or wear cloths inside out. Sometimes, you will find
amulets whereon Qur’anic ayaat are inscribed backward.
Magicians normally give you amulets and talismans that often possess
engraved symbols and weird writings, strange figures and secret names (of
stars), numbers with occult meaning and un-recognizable texts who’s
connote is un-known. These are basically names of or attempts to
commune and seek aid from devils. Such amulets might contain Qur’anic
verses but don’t be fooled by their mischief: for Qur’anic verses are
inserted not to satisfy Allaah Ta’aala, but to deceive you and dishonor His
words via inserted symbols beside and numbers carrying hidden aspects of
Shirk accompany the pure words of Allaah Ta’aala.
Sorcerers, many a time, give their compliers rosaries (ហ.

-·) for particular
utterance on appearance of new or full moon, maybe ask you to take
seclusion in isolated dark places, and tell you to remain dead silent during
the exercise, all means to attract shayateen.
Magicians sometime can even tell your name, residence, reason of your
visit, seemingly without any fore-knowledge, all with demoniac aid of
course: for without their aid sorcery is not possible.
These are all obvious Signs of Sorcery of which we seek Allaah Ta’aala
protection, so also from all it’s hidden ill-effects, ameen!

Say: I seek refuge with the Lord of the Dawn; From the mischief of
created things; From the mischief of Darkness as it overspreads;
From the mischief of those who practise secret arts; And from the
mischief of the envious one as he practises envy.

Say: I seek refuge with the Lord and Cherisher of Mankind, The
King (or Ruler) of Mankind, The god (or judge) of Mankind,- From
the mischief of the Whisperer (of Evil), who withdraws (after his
whisper),- (The same) who whispers into the hearts of Mankind,-
Among Jinns and among men.
