Distinctive Features of a Witch /Sahir /Black-Magician

 

If you find one of the following characteristics in a person who treats people suffering from sihr (Witchcraft) or other related illnesses, then this person is definitely a sahir (Witch).

  1. He asks the patient his and his Mother’s names.
  2. He takes a sweaty garment from the patient e.g. a piece of cloth that is in contact with skin, like a vest, cap, handkerchief etc. He takes it as a tracker for the jinn [Demon] to follow.
  3. He sometimes asks for an animal, with certain specifications, in order to slaughter it without initiating the slaughter with the Name of Allah, He may use the sacrificial blood to stain some painful areas of the patient, or throw the carcass in on a ruined site. One of the Methods to bring about a Demon (See Contents Above).
  4. He writes incantations. Mostly Polytheistic and full of Praise to the Chief Demon.
  5. He recites unclear incantations. He might recite Qur’anic verses, only to take the trust of the Patient, but then he starts to recite the polytheistic words to praise the demons.
  6. He gives the patient a hijab (incantation written on a piece of paper), which contains squares within which letters or figures are written. Figures and mixture of Integers also act as a Portal for the jinn, also called ‘KEY’ or ‘CHARM’.
  7. He instructs the patient to isolate himself/herself in a dark room and not to talk to people for a specific period of time. The common people call it alhijba (act of remaining indoors for a long time).
  8. He sometimes instructs the patient not to touch water for a specific period of time, usually forty days. This indicates that this particular Jinn, working for the sahir, is Christian.
  9. He gives the patient some items to bury in the ground. It is always the KEY/CHARM (portal for the jinn).
  10. He gives the patient some pieces of paper to burn and use as incense for his or her body. Jinn are attracted and also repelled by incense, depending upon what kind of incense is burnt.
  11. He murmurs unclear words.
  12. He sometimes informs the patient of his name, his town and the purpose of the visit. That he knows from the Qareen of that person (see Types of Jinn in Contents).
  13. He writes broken letters on a piece of paper (hijab) or on a plate made of white porcelain, and instructs the patient to dissolve the writing in water, and then drink it.

If you discover that this man is a sahir, do not go to him; or else you are the person whom the Prophet (pbuh) describes in the following hadith:

“Whoever goes to a soothsayer and believes what he says, has disbelieved in the Message sent to Muhammad (pbuh); and his prayers will not be accepted for forty days.”

    Are muslims allowed to go to a soothsayer who recite quranic verses and give taweed to wear as treatment for their illness or health problems which doctors can’t find a reason for?

    • Muhammad Ali says:

      Dear brother,
      Amulets are forbidden in Islam. It is a tradition widespread these days, but we Muslims unfortunately forget, that –

      Amulets are things that the Arabs used to tie onto their children to protect them against the evil eye, or so they claimed. This is a form of Shirk, because the Messenger of Allaah said, according to a Hadeeth narrated by Ahmad:
      “Whoever ties on an amulet has committed Shirk”
      Refer, Zaad Al-Ma’aad, 4/170.

      It is shocking for most of the Muslims of today but they somehow never realize “WHY AMULETS ARE SEALED SO TIGHT”. It is only to keep the person from taking a look at what is inside, and what is being concealed from him. Once you take a look inside, you will find a diagram/table with numbers, it will have a language you might never understand but for sure would serve the devils with polytheism.

      An important fact is, when one can heal his brother with Quran and Sunnah, then why cure with amulets?
      I will Insha’Allah write an article about the widespread innovations which people use as a protection against evil eye, which is nothing more than to please the devils, and the devils would rather never bother the ones who are already misguided.

      Please keep your questions coming.

      • Ahmed Syed says:

        Surayj ibn Yunus and Yahya ibn Ayyub narrated to me: they said: ‘Abbad ibn ‘Abbas narrated to me from Hisham ibn ‘Urwah: from his father: from ‘A’ishah (Allah be pleased with her): she said:

        “When one of his family was sick, Allah’s Messenger (Allah bless him and grant him peace) would blow over him upon [reciting] mu’awwidhat[1]. When he became sick with the illness in which he died, I began blowing on him and I wiped him with his own hands, because that was greater in blessing than my hands.” In the narration of Yahya ibn Ayyub it adds, “while [reciting] the mu’awwidhat.” (Sahih Muslim)

        The hadith proves the permissibility of ruqyah and blowing [nafth] after it. We have set forth beforehand in the early chapters of Kitab al-Tibb that its permissibility is preconditioned on it being understood, not containing istimdad with other than Allah (Most High) and not believing that it has efficacy in itself, and whoever meets these conditions, there is no harm in his ruqyah.

        Writing Ta’widhat

        Moreover, the starting point in the issue of ruqyah is that it is done by reciting the Noble Qur’an or some of the names of Allah Most High or His attributes, and thereupon to blow on the sick. This has been established from the Prophet (Allah bless him and grant him peace) in a number of hadiths. As regards to writing ruqyahs, hanging them on the neck of children and the sick, or writing them and giving its ink to the sick to drink, this has been established from a number of Companions and Successors.

        Ibn Abi Shaybah transmitted in his Musannaf (8:39) from ‘Amr ibn Shu’ayb from his father: from his grandfather: he said: Allah’s Messenger (Allah bless him and grant him peace) said, “When one of you becomes fearful in his sleep he should say: ‘In Allah’s name, I seek refuge with the complete words of Allah from His anger and His punishment and the evil of His slaves, and from the evil suggestions of the shaytans and from their being present [at death].’”

        ‘Abdullah, i.e. Ibn ‘Amr, would teach these words to children, whoever of them could remember it, and whoever could not remember, he would write it and hang it around his neck.

        Ibn Abi Shaybah also transmitted from Abu ‘Ismah: he said, “I asked Sa’id ibn al-Musayyab about ta’widh and he said: ‘there is no harm when it is on leather.’”

        And he transmitted from ‘Ata that he said about a menstruating woman who had a ta’widh on her: “If it is leather she should take it off and if it is on a silver thread, if she wishes she may put it on and if she wishes she need not put it on.”

        And he transmitted from Mujahid that he would write ta’widh for people and hang it on them.

        And he transmitted from Abu Ja’far, Muhammad ibn Sirin, ‘Ubaydullah ibn ‘Abdullah ibn ‘Umar and al-Dahhak proof that they would permit writing ta’widh and hanging it or tying it around the upper arm, etc.

        Al-Hafiz Ibn Taymiyyah said in his Fatawa (19:64): “It is permissible to write for the one afflicted [with the evil eye] and others of the sick something from the Book of Allah and His dhikr with permissible ink, and wash [the ink off the paper] and give it to drink, as Ahmad and others have explicated. ‘Abdullah ibn Ahmad said: ‘I read unto my father: Ya’la ibn ‘Ubayd narrated to us: Sufyan narrated to us: from Muhammad ibn Abi Layla: from al-Hakam: from Sa’id ibn Jubayr: from Ibn ‘Abbas (Allah be pleased with him): he said: When labour becomes difficult for a woman one should write: ‘In Allah’s name, there is no god but Allah, the Clement the Honourable. Glory to Allah Lord of the Magnificent Throne. All praise to Allah Lord of the Worlds. On the day when they behold it, it will be as if they had but tarried for an evening or the morn thereof (79:46), On the day when they behold what they were promised, it will be as if they had but tarried for an hour of a day, A clear message. Shall any be destroyed save evil-living folk? (46:35)’

        “My father said: ‘Aswad ibn ‘Amir narrated to us with his chain [of narration] the same thing and he said: one writes [the ta’widh] in a clean vessel and gives it to drink’. My father said: ‘and Waki’ added in his narration: she is given to drink [from it] and it is sprinkled below her navel. ‘Abdullah said: I saw my father writing [a ta’widh] for a woman on a cup or something clean.’”

        Ibn Taymiyyah (Allah have mercy on him) then transmitted this narration of Ibn ‘Abbas through another route, and he said at the end of it: “‘Ali (meaning Ibn al-Hasan, the nephew of the narrator of this narration) said: ‘one writes [the ta’widh] on paper and ties it around the upper arm of a woman’. ‘Ali said: ‘indeed we tried this and did not see anything more remarkable than it. When she delivered, it was quickly disposed of, by subsequently shredding it or burning it.’”

        These narrations contain proof against those in our time who claim that writing ta’widh and giving them to drink or hanging them [around one’s neck] is prohibited according to the Shari’ah, and indeed some of them greatly exaggerated until they claimed it to be shirk.

        They adduce as proof what Abu Dawud transmitted (no. 3883) from Zaynab the wife of ‘Abdullah: from ‘Abdullah ibn Mas’ud (Allah be pleased with him): he said: “I heard Allah’s Messenger (Allah bless him and grant him peace) say: ‘Indeed ruqyahs (incantations), tama’im (amulets) and tawlah (potions) are shirk.’”

        However, the complete [wording] of this hadith contains what would refute this line of reasoning, for it mentions: Zaynab said: “I asked: Why do you say this? By Allah, when my eye was discharging I used to visit a certain Jew who applied a ruqyah on me. When he applied the ruqyah on me, it calmed down.” ‘Abdullah said: “Indeed that is but the work of shaytan, he picked the eye with his hand, and when the Jew applied the ruqyah, he desisted. It is enough for you to say as Allah’s Messenger (Allah bless him and grant him peace) would say: ‘Remove the harm, Lord of men and heal. Thou art the Healer. There is no remedy but Thine which leaves no disease behind.’”

        This hadith clearly proves that the ruqyah that is prohibited in the hadith is only the ruqyah of the people of shirk who would seek help from the shaytans and others. As regards to ruqyah in which there is no shirk, it is permissible and is established from the Prophet (Allah bless him and grant him peace) in numerous hadiths. The same is the case with tama’im, which is the plural of tamimah, and these were stones the Arabs would hang on their children, believing that they have efficacy in themselves. Al-Shawkani said while commenting on the hadith of Abu Dawud in Nayl al-Awtar (8:177): “He included these three in [acts of] shirk due to their belief that they have efficacy in themselves.”

        Ibn ‘Abidin said in Radd al-Muhtar (6:363): “In al-Shalbi [it is narrated from] from Ibn al-Athir: tama’im is the plural of tamimah, and they are stones which the Arabs would hang on their children to protect them from the evil eye in [accordance] with their belief, so Islam abolished it … because they believed that it is the complete treatment and cure, rather they made it an associate [with Allah], because they intended thereby to repel the destinies written for them and sought from other than Allah Most High to repel harm while He [alone] repels [harm].”

        By this it becomes evident that the tama’im that are prohibited have no relation to ta’widhs that are written containing verses of the Qur’an or some form of dhikr, since that is permissible according to the majority of the jurists of the Ummah. Rather some ‘ulama have recommended them when they are done using the transmitted dhikrs (al-adhkar al-ma’thurah), as al-Shawkani transmitted from them in al-Nayl. And Allah knows best.

    Jazakallah for all this input. On the website Kalamullah.com you will find good books about Black Magic such as, Sword against Black Magic and (Jinn?). I would like to know, is using bottles to trap Jinn according to Sunnah? I’ve seen someone use this method and am unsure that it is reliable. The bottles are then kept closed and you see them sweating. During the treatment, the brother would recite loudly then silently and blow it on miswak. Then he uses the miswak as a weapon against the jinn. He taps the possessed person lightly and the jinn screams as if it was violently beaten. However, this person being possessed for so long that the jinn is very stubborn even after a lot of treatments, and won’t leave.

    • Muhammad Ali says:

      Indeed, Wahid Abdussalam, may Allah reward him for his courtesies. He has written many books of about Demons (Jinn) and how to Cure Magic.
      I have seen your website, Masha’Allah BarikAllahu feh; Very neat. It must be a great blessing to spread the word of Allah with such effort. I’m sure you have a great reward waiting for you.

      About the Jinn, I have heard two healers in my village that are known to captivate the jinn in a bottle and in other common vessels like Jars made of glass etc. But I have also heard that they fail to cure most of their patients fully. Their patients re-visit them from time to time. Therefore, I personally do not trust them as much as I trust curing patients with the word of Quran. Captivating a Jinn in a bottle would require the assistance of another jinn, a jinn who would have his own conditions set with the Healer. The healer must have to repay him in return, with something nonetheless. We Muslims are taught to try and make the jinn to embrace Islam, i-e when it speaks from the possessed person during a Ruqya. If he does not agree, he will burn with the recitation of Quran. Once I finish writing about the types of Sihr. I will write about how to cure each one of them with just one common set of Verses; All from the Quran. Insha’Allah.

      Brother, I’m at a point to believe that – When the word of Allah can heal diseased patients, why use alternatives? I’m speaking on the basis of my own experience brother. I might be wrong, for only Allah knows Best.

  6. Rahman says:

    Assalamu’alaikum ,
    My family has been in contact with this person ,who seems to have knowledge about people he has never met such as their personalities and friends.He never depicts the future but tells of choices that would lead to good or bad outcomes(long term;barely descriptive) and he also suggests gemstones for illnesses and the like i.e ruby.
    He always advices us to pray more and read the verses of the quran ,notably the last 4 Surahs and Ayat-ul-Kursi.I think it is fair to say that he has acquired some knowlege of the ‘unseen’,right? .

    Is there anything I should be worried about? please elaborate your reasons .BTW he never asks for anything in return and also he has never mentioned anything about jinns.

    • Muhammad Ali says:

      Wa’alikum as Salam,
      Brother, you have mentioned very little about this person’s character. For the short description of this character, I can only think that, When the Companions of the Prophet (saw) never had such gifts for their strong faith, then the ability to find out personalities and relationship of people in today’s world seem unlikely. There are good people who are blessed with Karishma (type of Miracle), but I don’t see any blessed Scholar who had the ability to know people’s relationship with others. I would like to relate a personal experience here.

      I have an online friend whom I met on the internet. He lives in another corner of the country. Basically he has never met me in person but has only seen a few photos. When I first mentioned this site to him, he doubted the existence of Jinn. So next morning he talked to one of his friend in his office, and his friend told him that it is true, jinn do exist. His friend took him to this PEER (a person who claims to have God-gifted knowledge/abilities). These two friends waited for 2 hours for their turn to talk to this man. Once inside, they asked the man if Jinn exist and the PEER said ‘Yes’. Then the PEER asked why they wanted to know about them, and this friend of mine mentions that he has a friend (me) on the internet who has knowledge about jinn and that he was wondering if it is true.

      The peer replied, “Can you tell me the name of this friend who has knowledge about jinn? I would want him to be my Mureed (disciple) if so.” My friend did not tell him my name, nor did he say anything about my address. Eventually after too many tries, the PEER asked for just a PART of my name. So my friend agreed on telling him my last name ‘Muhammad’; and that was suffice.

      After a pause, the PEER (with his eyes closed) said, “It is a tall man, white complexion, dark moustache, he is in his early 20s, lives in the northern region of Pakistan,” etc, which were precisely correct. He further added a few predictions which suggested a great future ahead of me, but they are haraam to believe in so I avoid mentioning them. After this PEER finished talking, he felt sudden excitement as if he came out of a state of unconsciousness, and begged my friends to get them my photo. He said that he doesn’t need to take money from them but only my photo, and that he will be grateful. I’m glad my friends left him immediately, since they were already shocked at how the PEER got to describe me.

      However Brother, matter of fact is that, this friend of mine visited this PEER in the month of Ramadan. Amazingly, this PEER (so called God Gifted) was having rice in lunch with a liter bottle of coke. He also claims that he can talk to people in person anywhere in the world, only if one could bring him a Photo of that person. This implies that he sends Jinn to appear in his form and the jinn then talk to those people. Obviously he cannot have angels working for him. This PEER also helps people in finding lost items. Also, he denies the fact that jinn are involved in his practice, when it is already so obvious.

      Coming to the point of Gemstones; if there is cure in something for an illness, whether it be dead or living, and as long as it does not involve polytheism or anything against the Muslim Aqidah, it is permissible to use. But using Gemstones for protection and for good fortune is just the same as Amulets; which are Haraam in Islam. We ought to put our faith in Allah instead of Stars and seek refuge in HIM instead of Dead stones.

      If you want reference for this last paragraph I can explain further from the Hadith and the Quran. I have other articles written on relevant issues, if you wish to read them. Article like Facts about Amulets and Knowledge of the Unseen. All present here: Contents Page. For further explanation, please do not hesitate to ask. Also, if you can find out more about this person you want to know about. We cannot judge anyone like this, he might have a Gift from Allah. Only Allah knows best.

      Take Care & Please keep your questions coming.

  7. Rahman says:

    Assalamu’alaikum ,
    Thank you for your fast reply.The details I can give you are what I have learned so far .First and foremost I would like you to know that I am man who strives with his mind and body to earn all that is to earn in this life and the hereafter.I don’t believe in the concept of free lunches or luck, infact at times they scare me ,because I’m never sure I’ll like the price I have to pay…and you always have to pay one way or the other.

    Frankly ,there are plenty of doctors who treat for free ,but they are often backed by Pharmaceutical companies that are trying a new product.So is the catch 22 worth the risk,not if I have to spend an eternity in hell fire.
    First of all we didn’t confront him ,he asked to provide his services freely,a relative brought him to our house .So far he has yet to mention about his skill of locating things .After our first encunter he gave us his number and said that he would never contact us ,but we may contact him if we need to.He has prescribed certain herbs for illnesses and even asked to visit a doctor in another.He dresses in a simple western attire ,librarian would be a good word to describe him.No matter what he suggest he’ll always start by mentioning Allah can help us better and that our Dua has greater effect.
    My mother had asked about my friends he described their nature roughly in a few words.As for the ‘future’ he said that i’d do very well if I’d study a bit harder and said to an aunt of mine that her husband would lose track of his pupose (business) abroad.
    I have yet to ask anything and I don’t
    have any intention of doing so in the future but my relatives can’t help it and my mother feels that his ‘opinion’ is important in matters of risk.Please try to understand my dilemma ,your advice would be highly appreciated.

    • Muhammad Ali says:

      Brother, if he is a faker then people like him are often described in the history books.

      A person who claimed that he can find out the number of grain/rice someone is holding in his hand just by looking at them. He claimed to be a messenger of Allah, Nauzubillah. People called the Caliph of that time and the Caliph brought a hand full of rice to this so called messenger. The Caliph asked the man if he knows how many they are, and if he knew he would agree that he has a gift from Allah. The magician scratched his head but remained silent. People asked the Khalifa HOW the person could not reply him. The Caliph replied, “It is because, when I did not count the number of rice I was holding, so the demon assigned to me (Qareen) did not know about it either. If my Qareen had counted with me, he would then tell the magician about it and that is how he surprises the people.”

      I hope you know about Qareen, the companion jinn assigned to everyone from mother’s womb till death. Magicians or those who have Jinn with them, contact the Qareen of people through their jinn to extract information. That is how they find out about lost items, a Human brain might forget but the Qareen remembers.

      Brother, My advice is that. Masha’Allah I can see that you have a strong faith, May Allah bless you and help you through this dilemma. If you believe that this man is Fake, you can prove him fake in front of your family. Ayat-ul-kursi is the weapon to counter Magic/ & to repent Demons. If you recite Ayat-ul-kursi near a Magician his magic Fails to perform. It is Widely known and I can post a dozen witnesses of this. You can call him at your place and ask him questions and clarify your doubts and others’ doubts. Once he is proven wrong, you can then suggest your family to put their trust in Allah for whatever is to come would have a blessing, Insha’Allah.

  8. Rahman says:

    Thank you once again brother.I had thought about a confrontation as well but wasn’t sure how to go ahead with it ,now I have the means.At this point I can only hope that Allah will guide me ,because in the end I would be the one making the decision.As for the recital ;does it have to be out loud? .I will let you know of the outcome as soon as I’m done Insha’Allah.

    • Muhammad Ali says:

      Insha’Allah brother.
      About the recitation, it does not have to be loud. First, recite Ayat-ul-kursi and the last three Surahs and blow them on your palm and rub those hands over your head and body three times. You may blow the above into the room where you want to confront him. To ward off any existing evil. After the person arrives, you don’t have to recite it loud, if you can sit close to this man, like in an adjacent chair, and have a 3rd person asking questions from this man, that would be the right time to whisper ayat-ul-kursi. It is nothing to be ashamed of, you are only doing Zikr, and if he is a good person, he would never offend it.
      Please let me know the outcome. I will pray for guidance.
      Wa huwa ala kulli shay’in Qadeer.

  9. Rahman says:

    Assalamu’alaikum ,
    I have confronted him and have done so in the manner you have instructed ,but his skills remain unaltered .Further more I have read the ayat-ul-kursi aloud twice ,after he asked me if I had started in the name of Allah the first time.Both my mother and I have asked him questions ,the answer to which were more or less accurate.Accurate in the same way that our elders warn us of rain on a sunny day and it does rain.

    At the mention of jinn and magic he had no reaction and he explained the concept of Ilm ae Ghaib and selim(or something;was referring to conventional knowlege) as I had understood it from before.He did draw geometric figures in his notebook and write the first letters of the name and also birth digits.He said his method was nothing very apart from doctors and hakims and used it as Allah permmitted him and that he was just a medium,with out Allah’s leave nothing is possible.
    At the end of it all I have evaluated this much ;it’s my judgement .His advices are analogous with that of a professional ,an economist might be able to tell me if my business will succeed.His predictions share a similar trend only that he sounds like an expert from every field.He has yet to suggest anyone I know (aunts ,grand parents) to something that is against the Sunnah or whats written in the Quran .Overall he seems alright.Right now ,I think that he has equal chances of being CIA agent ,statistician, telepath or a magician.
    Please share your insights and thank you very much not just for the guidance but for helping me overcome my fear.

  10. Shah says:

    There is brother who regularly attends all prayers who suspect is magician, recently he was locked up regarding some sex abuse case, eventually he was released. We know of this person giving taweez to people, how can one who is magician attend masjid daily?, is he doing sick acts in mosque to please jinns and do magic?

    • Muhammad Ali says:

      Brother, it is an act. If he does not attend the masjid, people will not go to him. It is the dilemma where people believe that this man is Holy for he offers his prayers, in fact it is merely an act to deceive those people. You will find thousands of such people who claim to be men of God and known as Peer in common terms, they show people magic and telling them that it is a Karishma which he was blessed with by God. There are True blessed people with Karishmas but this one doesn’t seem to fit in that category since he gives people Amulets – which in the first place is Haraam in Islam.

  11. Azizul Ghaffar says:

    How can anyone treat from magician if he/she is on sehar or magic? Plz reply soon.

    • Muhammad Ali says:

      As salamu alaikum brother,

      Brother I would like you to go to the Contents Page here: http://www.jinndemons.com/contents-page/

      Then scroll down to Cure & Protection category. You will find the articles Curing Sihr/Magic/Witchcraft. You may wish to go through Stage I and II and also the conditions that appear on the patient during this treatment.

      I hope you find the answer.

      Wa huwa ala kulli shay’in qadeer.

  12. Max says:

    There is person who attends our mosque who i suspect of being sahir, he is always muttering, has been found with pictures of astrology and moon sighting, this man extermely jealous and envious and when leaves the mosques he swears all the time. I suspect this man is constantly in the state of janaba, lives on his own, when he puts scent on people they become poorly. What is the best way to exspose this creature and stop him committing evil acts in the house of Allah?

    • Muhammad Ali says:

      Apparently, according to Islamic Law (Sharia), the punishment for Sahir/Witch is Public Execution. This is to set an example infront of the people so they might not wish to spread such an evil in society and etc.

      It is best you do not confront this person personally, it might cause problems because, all our societies lack Islamic Law, and there is freedom of speech and religion and in fact, Witchcraft/Wicca is now considered a Religion all over the world. So it is hard to sue such people in today’s world. What you can do is – Talk to the Imaam of your masjid, and address your suspicion. If you can provide proof and evidence that this person really is a Magician and he comes to Masjid to perform his rituals of Shirk, then you may convey the same to the Imaam.

      That is all for you to do, Allaah will reward you for your good intentions.

      JazakAllahu Khairan

  14. Mahmoodh says:

    Assalamu Alaikum brother,
    i have two questions that i would like your guidance on-

    1st- i heard people say that if someone is possessed by a jinn then that person cannot even touch the quran and also will be scared of the recitation from the quran. is it true?

    2nd- i know a person who uses numerology. he tells people what days are favorable and unfavorable to do something important, like traveling, opening a business etc., he uses our names, date of birth and calculates with stars and something. is what hes doing haram? is he using the jinn to tell us our past and future?
    Please explain and also give me reference so i can stop someone i know from going to this person and doing shirk.

    Thanking you brother,
    M.Mahmoodh

      Wa’alaikum as salaam Brother Mamood,

      “1st- i heard people say that if someone is possessed by a jinn then that person cannot even touch the quran and also will be scared of the recitation from the quran. is it true?”
      It depends on the strength of the Magic done. But it is true that those who are possessed, when Quran is recited to them, they become epileptic and the Jinn speaks through their tongue and are thrown out of the body with the same recitation. This is called the Ruqya. Read Here – Ruqya-Stage-I

      “2nd- i know a person who uses numerology. he tells people what days are favorable and unfavorable to do something important, like traveling, opening a business etc., he uses our names, date of birth and calculates with stars and something. is what hes doing haram? is he using the jinn to tell us our past and future?”
      Yes brother this is Haraam and forbidden in Islam.

      Narrated Abu Huraira: The Prophet(pbuh) said, “Whoever goes to a soothsayer and believes what he says, has disbelieved in the Message sent to Muhammad (pbuh); and his prayers will not be accepted for forty days.”
      Reported by al-Haakim: 1/8 and authenticated by adh-Dhahabee, and al-Albaanee agreed in al-‘Irwaa’, no.2006 and in Aadaab az-Zifaaf, page: 105-106, and also reported by Aboo Daawud, no. 3904, and Ahmed: 2/408 and 429 and 476, and at-Tirmidhee, no. 135, and Ibn Maajah, no. 639, and al-Bayhaqee: 7/198. and Ibnul-Jaarood, no. 107, and ad-Daarimee, no. 1141, and at-Tahaawee in al-Mishkal 15/429.

      I hope I have answered your question, please keep your questions coming.

      Wa’alaikum as salaam brother Muhammad,

      I am sorry for this late response, and I am sorry for the Domain expiry that might have caused any inconvenience. Brother, what you describe is quite common these days, and most of my visitors speak the same problem. I am glad that you found the answer soon enough brother. These people are viable to bankrupt you and may Allaah guide all of us.

      I have an article written on this issue, with the name “The Fake Molana, Healer, Sheikh, Peer”. and I have described this common misunderstanding in there, and good people are deluded by these Munafiqeen. That is why I have placed it on top of the homepage for people to read and learn to avoid such people.

      Worry not brother, Marital Squabbles are natural and one should only be patient and tolerant to get over such issues. Another point is that most of the Muslims today do not pray regularly, and that is what causes misunderstandings and trouble in Most families that I have known, personally. I am sure you are a practicing Muslim brother and that is Allaah exposed this person to you. Seek refuge in Allaah and everything will be normal again, Insha’Allaah.

      About forgiveness brother, there is no sin on you, since you were not aware of Magicians in disguise, and you were deluded by ‘Another person’ and you trusted him for he appeared as a Practicing Muslim. So there is no sin on you, but on the person who deluded you. We should be thankful to Allaah for His guidance, and seek refuge in Him from the evil of such men and demons.

      Brother, you could read the following article for reference if you wish:
      The Fake Healers

      If you have more questions brother, do not hesitate to ask.

      And May Allaah’s peace and blessings be upon you and your family. Ameen.

    I have a question i live in Africa and here we have magicians who use jinn and they don’t even hide you hear invisible people talking but you cant see them they also take blood as a sacrifice.The jinn drink the blood but you cant see anyone you just see the blood disappearing and hear people drinking it.They also make things appear including big objects out of thin air.

    How do you think these people trapped these jinn?

    • Muhammad Ali says:

      Polytheism brother. They bow and pray towards Chief of Jinn Tribes, and the jinn that do such Magic are Servants of that Chief Jinn who offers them to this Magician for his Polytheism and Prayers to him. So these jinn are bound to serve the Magicians or they will be punished by the Jinn Chief.

      If you have more questions please don’t hesitate to ask.

  18. khan says:

    salaam brother, mashallah may allah bless you this is an excellent and informative site based on the principles of quraan and sunnah. I just wish to mention one point regarding taweez/amulet if they contain verses of the quran then they are permissable and not a form of shirk.Taweez which contain symbols, letters,etc are a form of shirk. The people of knowledge do not differ in this however some scholars are reluctant to give taweez as they say it can weaken the aqeedah. Therefore it is permissable to wear taweez if they contain verses of quran if your intention is sincere and you believe that it is Allah that will assist you and you are better by his permission. Barakallah

    Asalamualaikum

    these people can be very convincing, therefore i would like to know how “legit” this person is.

    We have recently visited a “sufi” muslim. and he made each of us stand infront of him, drink three sips of water and look into his eyes. he made us state our name, birthdate and surname, he read and read,and told us if we see anything in his eyes we should tell him, Shukran i saw nothing although i felt heavy and weak (he says these are symptoms left from the shadow) as he read while twirling his finger vigorously and read, he said that we have shadows with us and that it was playing around with him, he told us what shadows are and what they do, when he was done i ask him, do you do this work with Jinns help or energy(chi\qi) and he said no, i said, but what about your Qareen, he says he has no Qareen, he says with the Sufis, Jinns are afraid to come near them, and they power is through their shahada finger “a gift from Allah”. he also asked me how well i know myself, he says he works with his Rooh, some people can have two bodies, one with the physical aspect and one with the spirit “rooh” aspect but he works “one” with his. then he sat down to write on pieces of paper and he dipped it in water. i asked him if i could see the paper as i know about the figures and blocks written that are associated with Kabaala or magic, he showed it to me and said i know ppl do that, he doesn know why they do that but he uses quranic ayats. he told us to drink from it everyday, and to keep filling it up until the paper loses its writing or becomes disintegrated, he says he knows bout ppl who can read the future, work with jinns, energy etc… but he does not do that, they power is with their hands\finger. although…he is coming to rid the house of these shadows and then “bind” the house so that they stay out… would that not be a form of amulet? your reply would be greatly appreciated! and may Allah reward you for your work, Insha’Allah!

  20. Ahmed Syed says:

    Surayj ibn Yunus and Yahya ibn Ayyub narrated to me: they said: ‘Abbad ibn ‘Abbas narrated to me from Hisham ibn ‘Urwah: from his father: from ‘A’ishah (Allah be pleased with her): she said:

    “When one of his family was sick, Allah’s Messenger (Allah bless him and grant him peace) would blow over him upon [reciting] mu’awwidhat[1]. When he became sick with the illness in which he died, I began blowing on him and I wiped him with his own hands, because that was greater in blessing than my hands.” In the narration of Yahya ibn Ayyub it adds, “while [reciting] the mu’awwidhat.” (Sahih Muslim)

    The hadith proves the permissibility of ruqyah and blowing [nafth] after it. We have set forth beforehand in the early chapters of Kitab al-Tibb that its permissibility is preconditioned on it being understood, not containing istimdad with other than Allah (Most High) and not believing that it has efficacy in itself, and whoever meets these conditions, there is no harm in his ruqyah.

    Writing Ta’widhat

    Moreover, the starting point in the issue of ruqyah is that it is done by reciting the Noble Qur’an or some of the names of Allah Most High or His attributes, and thereupon to blow on the sick. This has been established from the Prophet (Allah bless him and grant him peace) in a number of hadiths. As regards to writing ruqyahs, hanging them on the neck of children and the sick, or writing them and giving its ink to the sick to drink, this has been established from a number of Companions and Successors.

    Ibn Abi Shaybah transmitted in his Musannaf (8:39) from ‘Amr ibn Shu’ayb from his father: from his grandfather: he said: Allah’s Messenger (Allah bless him and grant him peace) said, “When one of you becomes fearful in his sleep he should say: ‘In Allah’s name, I seek refuge with the complete words of Allah from His anger and His punishment and the evil of His slaves, and from the evil suggestions of the shaytans and from their being present [at death].’”

    ‘Abdullah, i.e. Ibn ‘Amr, would teach these words to children, whoever of them could remember it, and whoever could not remember, he would write it and hang it around his neck.

    Ibn Abi Shaybah also transmitted from Abu ‘Ismah: he said, “I asked Sa’id ibn al-Musayyab about ta’widh and he said: ‘there is no harm when it is on leather.’”

    And he transmitted from ‘Ata that he said about a menstruating woman who had a ta’widh on her: “If it is leather she should take it off and if it is on a silver thread, if she wishes she may put it on and if she wishes she need not put it on.”

    And he transmitted from Mujahid that he would write ta’widh for people and hang it on them.

    And he transmitted from Abu Ja’far, Muhammad ibn Sirin, ‘Ubaydullah ibn ‘Abdullah ibn ‘Umar and al-Dahhak proof that they would permit writing ta’widh and hanging it or tying it around the upper arm, etc.

    Al-Hafiz Ibn Taymiyyah said in his Fatawa (19:64): “It is permissible to write for the one afflicted [with the evil eye] and others of the sick something from the Book of Allah and His dhikr with permissible ink, and wash [the ink off the paper] and give it to drink, as Ahmad and others have explicated. ‘Abdullah ibn Ahmad said: ‘I read unto my father: Ya’la ibn ‘Ubayd narrated to us: Sufyan narrated to us: from Muhammad ibn Abi Layla: from al-Hakam: from Sa’id ibn Jubayr: from Ibn ‘Abbas (Allah be pleased with him): he said: When labour becomes difficult for a woman one should write: ‘In Allah’s name, there is no god but Allah, the Clement the Honourable. Glory to Allah Lord of the Magnificent Throne. All praise to Allah Lord of the Worlds. On the day when they behold it, it will be as if they had but tarried for an evening or the morn thereof (79:46), On the day when they behold what they were promised, it will be as if they had but tarried for an hour of a day, A clear message. Shall any be destroyed save evil-living folk? (46:35)’

    “My father said: ‘Aswad ibn ‘Amir narrated to us with his chain [of narration] the same thing and he said: one writes [the ta’widh] in a clean vessel and gives it to drink’. My father said: ‘and Waki’ added in his narration: she is given to drink [from it] and it is sprinkled below her navel. ‘Abdullah said: I saw my father writing [a ta’widh] for a woman on a cup or something clean.’”

    Ibn Taymiyyah (Allah have mercy on him) then transmitted this narration of Ibn ‘Abbas through another route, and he said at the end of it: “‘Ali (meaning Ibn al-Hasan, the nephew of the narrator of this narration) said: ‘one writes [the ta’widh] on paper and ties it around the upper arm of a woman’. ‘Ali said: ‘indeed we tried this and did not see anything more remarkable than it. When she delivered, it was quickly disposed of, by subsequently shredding it or burning it.’”

    These narrations contain proof against those in our time who claim that writing ta’widh and giving them to drink or hanging them [around one’s neck] is prohibited according to the Shari’ah, and indeed some of them greatly exaggerated until they claimed it to be shirk.

    They adduce as proof what Abu Dawud transmitted (no. 3883) from Zaynab the wife of ‘Abdullah: from ‘Abdullah ibn Mas’ud (Allah be pleased with him): he said: “I heard Allah’s Messenger (Allah bless him and grant him peace) say: ‘Indeed ruqyahs (incantations), tama’im (amulets) and tawlah (potions) are shirk.’”

    However, the complete [wording] of this hadith contains what would refute this line of reasoning, for it mentions: Zaynab said: “I asked: Why do you say this? By Allah, when my eye was discharging I used to visit a certain Jew who applied a ruqyah on me. When he applied the ruqyah on me, it calmed down.” ‘Abdullah said: “Indeed that is but the work of shaytan, he picked the eye with his hand, and when the Jew applied the ruqyah, he desisted. It is enough for you to say as Allah’s Messenger (Allah bless him and grant him peace) would say: ‘Remove the harm, Lord of men and heal. Thou art the Healer. There is no remedy but Thine which leaves no disease behind.’”

    This hadith clearly proves that the ruqyah that is prohibited in the hadith is only the ruqyah of the people of shirk who would seek help from the shaytans and others. As regards to ruqyah in which there is no shirk, it is permissible and is established from the Prophet (Allah bless him and grant him peace) in numerous hadiths. The same is the case with tama’im, which is the plural of tamimah, and these were stones the Arabs would hang on their children, believing that they have efficacy in themselves. Al-Shawkani said while commenting on the hadith of Abu Dawud in Nayl al-Awtar (8:177): “He included these three in [acts of] shirk due to their belief that they have efficacy in themselves.”

    Ibn ‘Abidin said in Radd al-Muhtar (6:363): “In al-Shalbi [it is narrated from] from Ibn al-Athir: tama’im is the plural of tamimah, and they are stones which the Arabs would hang on their children to protect them from the evil eye in [accordance] with their belief, so Islam abolished it … because they believed that it is the complete treatment and cure, rather they made it an associate [with Allah], because they intended thereby to repel the destinies written for them and sought from other than Allah Most High to repel harm while He [alone] repels [harm].”

    By this it becomes evident that the tama’im that are prohibited have no relation to ta’widhs that are written containing verses of the Qur’an or some form of dhikr, since that is permissible according to the majority of the jurists of the Ummah. Rather some ‘ulama have recommended them when they are done using the transmitted dhikrs (al-adhkar al-ma’thurah), as al-Shawkani transmitted from them in al-Nayl. And Allah knows best.

    Salam wa aylaykum,
    I recently contacted an Imam who lives over seas over a few of my concerns. This Imam I guess you can say is gifted. Whenever my family feels something evil has entered our lives we contact him and he sees (?) if there someone has done sahir on any of our family members.
    I am a newly wed. Married a Muslim man with a Muslim father but who’s mother has never converted to Islam. Every time I see the family, I see one young woman there. She is my mother in laws, nephews, fiancee. She is not Muslim. Whenever I am around her I feel very uncomfortable. She is always staring at me with evil eyes. It seems like everyone in the family praise her to be such a wonderful person. However, there isn’t really anything special about this woman.
    I contacted this Imam living over seas and he explained to me that she has been, not only doing sahir on me, she has been doing sahir on my mother in law and her family. and since this woman is always cooking for every one in the family, the Imam advised me to stay away from the food she makes. And also, I am pregnant, and the Imam has warned me to not let this woman touch me. One get together I had attended, the entire time she had her hand on my stomach, I had a very strange scared feeling. She was very quiet, staring straight into my eyes as she had her hand on my stomach (baby)
    I have only been in the family for about 2 years and for about a year this woman has been getting very close to my mother in law. more close than i should be to my mother in law.
    I have also been seeing jinn in my dreams. and in these dreams, the jinn has the same color eyes as this woman. In my dreams I repeat surahs from the Quran, however, these jinns do not go away. I would wake up with headaches every single morning. I told the Imam about all this and he instructed me to
    sprinkle salt in her home the next time I go there. and to also spray a mix of vinegar and water in MY home. Ever since I found all this out, I have not been missing one prayer, I read the Quran, I play the Surat al bukur on my radio in my home. My headaches have gone away, I have not any of those evil dreams and overall I feel more at peace.
    My question to you is, is there anything else I can do to keep this woman out of my life and my families lives? IS the salt a weapon against jinn and demons? and why is the vinegar and water so good to spray in my home? how does it keep the evil away?

    SHukren, Salam wayalaykum,.
