Magic is Haraam

Magic is an old human practice. It is sometimes defined as deception by showing something to an audience, which is contrary to reality. In Islam this is part of magic, which is, however, defined as seeking the help of demons to perform something harmful against somebody.

In the light of the above definition, Islam considers magic to be an act of blasphemy. Thus, the Holy Quran say:

Suleiman (Solomon) did not disbelieve, but the devils disbelieved teaching men magic

[QURAN 2:102]

In an authentic saying, the Prophet of Islam p.b.u.h. said: Whoever goes to a fortune teller (a soothe sayer) or a diviner and believes him, has, in fact, disbelieved in what has been revealed to Muhammad.

Thus Islam condemns magic- even what is called the horoscope or luck or reading one’s palm to foretell the future is also prohibited in Islam. This is based on the belief that no one knows the future or the unseen except God almighty. That is why the Quran asserts that even Muhammad does not know the unseen. Concerning this, it says:

If I had the knowledge of the unseen, I should have secured abundance for myself, and no evil would have touched me”.

[QURAN 7:188]

Again, God is described in the Quran as the knower of the unseen and the manifest (6:73) and as the holder of the keys of the unseen.

[QURAN 6:73-6:59]

In another tradition, Prophet Muhammad p.b.u.h. says: “Avoid the seven deadly acts which are: ascribing partners to God, magic, killing the human self which Allah prohibited except with right, eating usury, devouring the orphan’s wealth, defecting from the battle-field (without a justified reason) and slandering chaste, unwary believing women. Thus Islam has closed the door for practicing magic, simply because it is against its teachings, and it is deceptive and harmful.

My Comments: There are several such evil practices we are doing on daily bases , we have joined many such therapies, meditations, tv programs those are a reason to open evil doors in our houses. Remember nobody has enough time to keep casting black magic on you, the black magicians or so called fake Aamils charge thousands for casting one time spell, why they will keep sitting for you, why your enemies will keep investing such a big amount to pay them. Islam already defined protection rituals according to Ayaat, but we dont listen, we are followers of this new age and new era. We like music, movies and many of evils comes from this side too.
