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.”

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

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
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.
