Black Magic and White Magic

Magic (Sihr in Arabic), no matter Black or White, mean: An agreement set up between a Witch (Sahir in Arabic) and a Demon (jinn), which stipulates that the Witch commit certain illegal or polytheistic acts, in return for the Demon (jinn)’s assistance and obedience in fulfilling the Witch’s request.

Many people believe that White Magic is permissible in Islam when it is Not. Ruqya (words of seeking refuge in Allah from evil) was first allowed in Islam on the condition that there be no polytheism involved whatsoever. Where, Magic involves praising the Demon Chiefs (Chief of a tribe of Jinn) in return for the chief’s servant-jinn. White magic works likewise Black magic. It is nothing more than sending a devil to scare away another devil. In fact, most of the times the devils negotiate and agree on leaving the victim alone for some time, temporarily. But afterwards, the symptoms re-appear and the counter-magician asks for more money. Why would a devil fight another devil when they both share the same cause?

It is hard to find someone who has jinn working for him for the sake of Allah and for the sake of helping His people for free. Therefore, counter-magic itself involves polytheism. If one chooses counter-magic to cure magic, the risks are many. Most of these so-called healers bankrupt their clients with the above scenario.

Ibn Qudama stated: “If sihr is treated with the recitation of some of verses of the Quran or some invocations, then there is nothing wrong with it As for the treatment of sihr with sihr, Imam Ahmad never went beyond this issue.”
Refer: Al-Mughnee 10/114

Al-Hafiz Ibn Hajar reported: “According to the Prophet’s (pbuh) hadith, ‘An-nushra (Rituals) is a work of Satan,”
Refer: Imam Ahmad

An-nushra is a reference to the purpose for which it is sought For instance, if it is intended for something good, then it is good, but if it is intended for something bad, then it is bad. However, an-nushra may be two types, and this is, according to Al-Hafiz Ibn Hajar, is the correct view:

  • Lawful Nushra. Treating sihr (magic) with the Quran or permissible invocations,
  • Unlawful Nushra. Treating sihr (magic) with sihr (magic), which entails seeking the assistance of demons, befriending, or seeking refuge in them or pleasing them, Perhaps this is the type intended in the hadith, An-nushra is a work of Satan (evil-jinn)More to the point, how can this type of nushra be lawful, while the Prophet & warned in more than one hadith that going to the sahara (witches) and soothsayers and believing in what they say is disbelieving in what has been sent to Muhammad (pbuh).
    Refer: Fath Al-baari 10/233

According to Ibn Al-Qayyim: “An-nushra is curing a person of sihr, and it is Two types:

  • Treating sihr with sihr, which is a work of Satan This is supported by Al-hasan AI-BasrTs view; that through it, both an-naashir (the one who uses nushra) and ai-muntashir (the one who has it done for him) befriend the demon by answering to his needs,, In return, the demon invalidates the sihr.
  • Treating sihr with Ruqya (words of seeking refuge in Allah from evil) and invocations is permitted.”

And Allah Knows Best.

Question from a Brother,

Assalamualaikum!
my friend is under influence of a hindu lady who is already twice married, once to a hindu, has a child, then second muslim whom she says she knew since college, whom she left within 2months of marriage and now third is my friend.my friend has cut of all ties with friends, family and masjid and we are 100% sure of black magic as this lady had advised to a muslim sister on ways to get married through rituals that are mix of hinduism/islam. since our brother is not in contact we cant do ruqyah for him. He doesnt even want to see his parents. Since ruqyah is not possible we are looking for ways and means to heal and were searcing for counter magic/white magic solutions. if our friend would meet we would take him for ruqya but he is no longer meeting any of his friends. Pls advise how to cure in such case as believe few ulama allow counter magic. also the scenario is we are dealing with non-muslim lady who pretends to have converted to islam and is acquiring sympathy but has taken complete control of our friend to the extent he cant meet any friend and he no longer attends the masjid. Pls advise . Most of ulama say its haram to counter magic with magic but for this lady nothing is halal/haram and she is exploiting all her kufr means whereas we are helpless as we cannot do ruqya.Wassalam

Answer:

Brother, first of all, it is not permissible to marry a woman who is not from Ahle-Kitaab [Jews/Christians/Muslims]. You should warn your friends from doing so. It looks like the hindu lady actually bewitched your friend with Sihr-al-Mahabba (Magic of Love). This type of Sihr is often used by Women to bewitch their spouse, with the main purpose to get money from them.

Brother, if you still wish to chose counter-magic (which I will never suggest), you would still require contacting your friend, in order to get something from his belongings, something for the counter-magician to setup a jinn to trace and affect. Plus the fact that – counter-magicians rarely cure victims permanently – like sending a devil to scare away another devil.

I would honestly recommend that you, somehow, plan on talking to your friend. You may call on his home number; ask him for lunch/dinner at your house, or to some friends gathering; something you think could work accordingly. Once you get the chance to talk to him, you may advise him and make him understand the reality of his situation.

Other than this brother, if you wish to follow other ways, the ruling is – it should not involve polytheism. You may pray and ask Allah to guide your friend to the right path. Ameen. But asking for the help of Demons weakens our Aqeedah.

Wa huwa 'ala kulli shay'in qadeer.

I would also wish that you go through the article – Signs of a Witch

    Assalamulaikum,
    Thanks for your kind reply. Jazakallah Khair, May Allah reward you for your efforts.

    Should you provide an email address I could provide further details about the whole case and seek your advice.

    We did talk to our friend some months back but he violently reacted that ruqyah is to separate him from her and hence he is not co-operating. He opposed his parents too. There is a behavioural change in him. He was otherwise a soft person. He no longer sees us friends since 3 months and has not been talking to parents since 6 months.

    In such absentia where ruqyah is not possible, we are seeking a counter magic with noble intention which will serve as a preliminary step so atleast he comes back to the masjid for prayers and then we can cajole him for ruqyah. In western countries,a person’s co-operation is very important for ruqyah.

    Whatever the intention of the Lady,he is severely bewitched to abstain from friends, parents, and masjid even though he lives very nearby. We have some proofs of her doing black magic.

    You are right, “it is hard to find someone who has jinn working for him for the sake of Allah and for the sake of helping His people for FREE”, but dont you think we muslims should help each other. We are seeking someone genuine as we are worried about our practicing muslim friend’s future faith. I am of the thought that counter magician uses a muslim jinn for ruqyah??? We dont get to meet our friend so we do not have any of his belonging too for the counter magic.

    Also, his mother is doing ruqyah back home, in his home-country, without his presence, but what effect will this long-distance ruqyah have when he is not present.

        Assalaamualaikum Brother, I had been suffering from black magic spell for many years which is affecting all my children and family quite severely. Money and valuables are vanishing at a rate. Obstructions on all our activities and stagnating us to the maximum. We need to make hijrah urgently as we don’t actually belong to this country but the black magic spell is not allowing us to leave and in fact at the moment we are experiencing attacks all because we are trying hard to migrate which is not allowing. Bless you brother if you can do something to break the black magic spell and enable us the least to be able to leave safely and barakahtly, Insha Allah.

        Jazakallah Khair

    Please find below some fatawas regarding this which i found on InterNet.

    Ruling on learning magic and removing spells from a person affected by magic
    Is it permissible to learn how to remove spells from a person affected by magic?

    Praise be to Allaah.

    If that is by doing something permissible, such as reciting du’aa’s that are prescribed or permitted in Islam, or by using a ruqyah that is prescribed in Islam, there is nothing wrong with that. But if a person learns magic in order to counteract magic, or for any other purposes, then that is not permitted and in fact is something which nullifies a person’s Islam, because it is not possible to learn it without falling into shirk. That happens by worshipping the shayaateen (devils), by offering sacrifices to them and making vows to them, and other kinds of worship, and offering sacrifices to them and seeking to draw close to them with things that they love, until they serve a person and do what he wants. This is the mutual benefit which Allaah refers to in the aayah (interpretation of the meaning):

    “And on the Day when He will gather them (all) together (and say): ‘O you assembly of jinn! Many did you mislead of men,’ and their Awliyaa’ (friends and helpers) amongst men will say: ‘Our Lord! We benefited one from the other, but now we have reached our appointed term which You did appoint for us.’ He will say: ‘The Fire be your dwelling place, you will dwell therein forever, except as Allaah may will. Certainly your Lord is All-Wise, All-Knowing.’”

    [al-An’aam 6:128]

    Majmoo’ah Fataawa wa Maqaalaat li’l-Shaykh Ibn Baaz, p. 118

    however, there is another thing called nushrah, and it is doubtful as a work of shaytaan and one of the manifestations of jahiliyyah

    Al-Bukhari reports from Qatadah (May Allah be pleased with him): I said to Ibn Al-Musaiyab, “A man is under a magical spell or is unable to cohabitate with his wife, should we treat him by An-Nushrah or apply some other means to cure the spell/sorcery?” Ibn Al-Musaiyab (May Allah be pleased with him) replied, “It is alright because they intend restoration or mending. That which benefits is not forbidden.”

    however, It is reported on the authority of Jabir (ra ) that Allah’s Messenger (saas ) was asked about an-nushrah and he said:

    “It is one of the works of Satan.” (Narrated by Ahmad with a good Sanad and by Abu Dawood

    Who said: “Ahmad was asked about these matters and he answered that Ibn Mas’ood detested all such things.”)

    Because an-nushrah was one of the actions of the Jahiliyyah, and the Companions had no desire or liking for the Jahiliyyah or its deeds, they asked the Prophet (saas ) about an-nushrah. He (saas ) replied that it is one of the works of Satan, and it is well-known that Satan orders not except that which is corrupt and detestable to the Believer. As for that which is permissible and not from the works of Satan, there is ar-ruqyah, seeking refuge (with Allah swt ) and the use of all permissible medicines (i.e. those which do not contain forbidden substances such as alcohol, pig fat etc.) and the Hadith is not a forbiddance of these things.

    along with that, It is reported that Al-Hasan Al-Basri said: “Magic is not counteracted by its like except by a magician.”

    Muhammad Ibn `Abdul Wahhaab said: “Ibn Al-Qayyim said: “An-Nushrah is counteracting the effects of magic and it consists of two kinds:

    1. Counteracting magic with its like and this is the work of the devil.

    2. An-Nushrah by means of ar-ruqyah, seeking refuge with Allah (swt ), permissible medicines and making supplications to Allah (swt ) – these are all permitted forms of an-nushrah.

    So we have in conclusion that if nushrah is practices which is nothing but ruqya and ad’aiyya, then it is okay. If it delves into more than that of potions and other mixtures and chants, then it is not allowed by most of the scholars and some have only allowed it if it is a duroora, like in saving one’s life.

    And this was a Fatwa of he Permanent Committee on the topic

    Question:
    What is the ruling regarding Annashrah, treatment of bewitchment by counter-magic?

    Answer:
    There are two types of treatment of bewitchment:
    The first type uses the Glorious Qur’an and established prayers as well as allowed medicatins. It is legitimate because it brings about benefits, but no harm. This explains why it is needed.
    The second type involves forbidden means, such as counter-magic. Some Ulama have allowed it, if necessary. Others have banned it altogether, and they base their verdict on a statement by the prophet; when asked about Annashrah, he replied, “it is devils work.” Therefore, treating bewitchment by counter-magic is prohibited. Instead, one has to seek Allahs help through supplication with humility to remove witchcraft’s harmful effects. Allah says, “And when My servent question thee concerning Me, then surely I am nigh. I answer the prayer of the supplicant when he crieth unto Me.”[1] Allas also says, “Is not He (best) who answereth the wronged one when he crieth unto Him and removeth the evil, and hath made you viceroys of the earth? Is there any God beside Allah? Little do they reflect!”[2] & [3]

    • Muhammad Ali says:

      Brother, the fatwa above clearly concludes that it is haraam to counter magic with magic, in fact when you have a prescribed sharya.
      I would like to quote a verse from Surah al-Jinn:

      “And verily, there were men among mankind who took shelter with the masculine among the jinns, but they (jinns) increased them (mankind) in sin and disbelief.” (Surah Al-Jinn: 06)

    As-salamu ‘alaykum everyone. Please can someone give me a name/number of a good Imam that will see my husband and I in London. I can’t disclose anymore, but this matter is very urgent. Allah has granted me a gift since I was a baby to see certain things in my dreams. Recently, my husband cheated on me and I found out, we are currently taking some time apart and I was even thinking about a divorce, which I am strongly against, but I have seen the truth in my dream a very spiritual dream and it’s very complicated, someone has been hexing my family and my marriage since day one, I am certain of this. If I could tell you all the details you would be shocked, but we need to see somebody straight away. Since I got married I have had this burden on my heart, lack of trust this dark cloud, i now see what that was. Although I am hurting, Allah has shown me the way and I am so grateful, he led me to the truth straight after eid al-adha and i know that it is a good sign. Please please email me or someone give me a way to get in touch with an imam. I know there is hope Inshallah.

    Sister Mariym

    I have had black magic castes apon me apparently I had it for over 3 years I was like this from the age of 10 – 14, my mother tried many ways to get rid of it, I used to get irritated from the noise of the adhan I used to stay away from the majid and everything you stated above, everyone my mum would take me to would say its evil eye on me, and gave tapes of Surat ya seen, and many different methods, I was uncontrollable in the uk people/doctors said its behaviour problem, outside I act different and different inside and with family

    at the end my mum saw my health was getting bad as well and she contacted some guy who has Muslim name so she didn’t know it was white magic, he ripped her off I think and took £900, but didn’t give anything to give me like medicines apparently doing it from his end

    But my mum saw I was changing back to normall within a month I was a totally new person,
    I to be honest don’t remember most of the things I did but my father recorded my activity and I look at it and cannot believe how my family still love me after all I did too them

    After sometime my sister researched on the man turned out to be white magic,
    My mum is very religious and she’s really annoyed why she used white magic
    Her brothers said it was an kufar act of her doing that

    Yeah that’s basically it

    I wanted to ask someone, what do you do if you paid a white magic person and didn’t know it was haram?

    Regards
    Kamal

    you dont even need a magic if a person offer namaz with full concentration focusing on allah just focusing energy on one focal(problem concern) namaz is best solution for every thing and jinns cannot harm humans the thing is our brother was not much commited to allah than that girl, those who offer prayer 5 times a day with full concentration are like swords of allah and you will see the blessing of allah when you do. trust me brother, i have experienced it and some times its seems to me allah fulfill my wishes before i asked him.
