I’m grateful to brother **** for sharing his personal experience with us. A great lesson to always keep remembrance of Allah. here it is:
I believe I have been the victim of sihr of love and also a sihr which destroys a person physically, mentally and spiritually (imaan). Here is my story,
A new female worker started work at my place who was the same age as me. She was the ‘friendly’ type that talks to everyone including ghair mahram men. I, at first did not like her behavior due to the fact that she did not adhere to Islamic principles despite wearing a headscarf. anyway i eventually had a conversation with her for like 10mins, just general stuff, in this talk i notice she asked me my mums name but at that time this was just considered to be general questions by me and i though nothing of it. So I went home. The next time I see her at work i suddenly feel a strong sense of attraction to her even though only a few days ago i had no such feelings. I would try to not think of her but the feelings just got stronger to such an extent i gave her my number which she took despite her knowing I was Married, I could not stop thinking bout her and it was ruining my life.
I would have dreams about her, wake up suddenly at 7am with her in my mind, we would talk for hours and text everyday. I was getting desperate for her to such an extent that i asked her to marry me, even though i was already married. Within 2 weeks of our first conversation i already wanted to marry her, I had no idea why i was so attracted to her. However despite my intense love (the worker) for her my wife did not give me permission to marry her and threatened suicide, so eventually she married someone else but i was still obsessed with her and we stayed in contact via phone. By this time 5 months had passed since our first meeting and also i had now started praying regularly and exercising taqwa in my life as i new this would help me in my grief of losing her. After 2 months of her marriage, i started to feel uneasy when intending to pray salah or quran, to such an extent i couldn’t even say ‘Allah’ without feeling sick. my condition went extremely worse in a matter of 3 weeks, by this time i was getting constant nightmares, Hallucinations in night, unable to eat, vomiting, feeling very scared and worried constantly, high body temperature, could not pray salah without feeling sick or with high body temp, i would feel scared when listening to quran to the extent i would fee like running away from the mosque. the worst thing was the constant thoughts of KUFR and SHIRK in my mind. I would try to fight these thoughts but i struggled.
After all these things were happening to me my family took me to a magician who told me it was a jinn through black magic, he didnt actually say it was somone i worked with, he asked me where I worked and if I had an argument with someone at work, i replied no. From this I concluded that it can only be the woman from work. He asked me my mums name and then told me it was a jinn through black magic by someone i worked with. he gave me taweez to mix with water and drink. At tis time i was unaware of ruqya nor did i know that it was haram to go to such people. a few months later most of the physical symptoms had gone but the kufr thoughts and the dislike of salah and quarn remained. After doing some research i learnt about this issue and found out about ruqyah and the fact that the only cure is through Quran and salah and dua and obeying Allah. So then i started prayin 5 times salah punctually and moring and evning adkars. For the first 6 months practicing Islam properly i did feel some of the symptoms but alhmdulilah after 1 year of regular salh, dhikr, quran, 99.9% all the problems have been cured, i no longer have any problem with reciting the quran or salah, nor do i get hallucinations or many nightmares.
ONE FINAL THING I WOULD LIKE TO ADD IS THAT GETTING RUQYA DONE ON YOU IS USELESS IF YOU YOURSELF DO NOT PERFORM THE 5 FARDH SALAH WITHOUT EXCEPTION.
