Mu' meneen Brothers and Sisters,
As Salaam Aleikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
Asalaamualaikum dear mo`min brother.
I am a girl at 17 years age. I am having an illness wich is chronic, and that has happend to me before 2 years ago. Before my illness was diagnosed, my parenst took me to a sheik or what ever it`s called, and he said to me that someone had make taweez on me, and I haven`t done anyone anything so who could do such a thing to me. The sheikh made some taweez for me too and i also took them the way i should. BUt it doesn`t helped, and after a few months the doctors find out what my illness was. So my question is, that why are they saying thing like that if they can`t help you probobly.? and does black magic exist?

Priests magic cure
In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is none worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.
Dear and Beloved Sister in Islam, first and foremost allow us to clarify that there is no such thing is a black, or a red, or a white, or a yellow magic! Magic or seher as described in the Glorious Quran is simply magic!
Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 2 Surah Baqarah verse 102:
102 They followed what the evil ones gave out (falsely) against the
power of Solomon; the blasphemers were not Solomon but the evil ones teaching
men magic and such things as came down at
Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 7 Surah Aaraaf verses 116-118:
116 Said Moses: "Throw ye (first)." So when they (the magicians) threw, they bewitched the eyes of the people and struck terror into them: for they showed a great (feat of) magic.
117 We put it into Moses's mind by inspiration: "throw (now) thy rod": and behold! It swallows up straightway all the falsehoods which they fake!
118 Thus Truth was confirmed and all that they did was made of no effect.
According to the guidance of the Quran, there are two types of magic.
- The type of magic given by the two Angels Harut and Marut by the permission of Allah Subhanah as a trial for the people, whereby the magic would cause differences between a husband and a wife in marriage.
- The second type is the magic was an illusion performed by the magicians in the court of Pharoah, whereby their staff when thrown became a snake.
Thus to answer the question if magic really exists, the answer in light of the guidance of the above absolutely clear guidance of the Quran would be yes!
Allah Says in His Holy Quran Chapter 35 Surah Fatir verse 2:
2 What Allah out of His Mercy doth bestow on mankind there is none can withhold: what He doth withhold there is none can grant apart from Him: and He is the Exalted in Power Full of Wisdom.
Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 3 Surah Ale Imraan verse 160:
If Allah helps you none can overcome you: if He forsakes you who is there after that that can help you? In Allah then let believers put their trust.
Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 6 Surah Anaam verse 17:
17 "If Allah touch thee with affliction none can remove it but He; if He touch thee with happiness He hath power over all things.
Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 33 Surah Ahzaab verse 3:
And put your trust in Allah Alone; and enough is Allah as a Disposer of affairs.
Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 9 Surah Taubah verse 51:
Say: "Nothing will happen to us except what Allah has decreed for us: He is our Protector"; and on Allah let the believers put their trust.
Al-Tirmidhi Hadith 3656 Narrated by Abu Musa al-Ash'ari
The Prophet (saws) said, "There are three who will not enter Paradise: one who is addicted to wine, one who breaks ties of relationship, and one who believes in (the effects of) magic."
Beloved Brother, the first thing we, as believers, must understand that those who claim to do magic do not have the power to hurt or benefit anyone, without the permission of Allah Subhanah. No harm and no benefit can happen to the believer without the Will of Allah Subhanah. If Allah does not will it, all the magicians of the world can get together and try their magic on someone, they cannot harm him in the least!; for Absolutely All Power and All Strength belongs to none save Allah Subhanah Alone!
Al-Tirmidhi Hadith 1019 Narrated by Abu Sa'id al-Khudri
The Prophet (saws) used to seek protection against the Jinn and the evil eye till Surahs al-Falaq and an-Naas were revealed. After they were revealed, he (saws) stuck to them and discarded everything beside them.
If one fears any evil from any quarter whatsoever, one should recite the Muawwidaat (113th Surah Al-Falaq and 114th Surah An-Naas) thus seeking refuge in the One and Only Lord Most High. Allah is our witness sister, there is no other or better source of refuge or protection than in Allah Subhanah, the Lord of the Worlds. After one has recited the Muawwidaat and remained constant in its recitation, one should know and believe with absolute conviction that they are under the refuge and protection of none other than Allah Subhanah, and no amount or combinations of Jinns, or magic doers, or evil-eyes, or any harm can come towards them from any quarter.
If one fears any evil from any quarter of the unseen and does anything else, like using a taaweedh, or an amulet, or a charm, or sprinkle water, or do absolutely anything else other than seeking refuge in their Lord and reciting the Muawwidhaat (Surahs 113 Al-Falaq and 114 An-Naas)..then it would be deemed that they have put their trust in a thing other than Allah Subhanah, and all such forms and rites would constitute the evil manifestation of shirk in the Sight of Allah Subhanah.
Uqbah ibn 'Amir narrates that the Messenger of Allah (saws) said: "If anyone wears an amulet (taaweedh), may Allah not help him in fulfilling his wish. If anyone wears a sea-shell around his neck, may Allah give him no peace."
Narrated by Ahmad and Al-Hakim.
An amulet (tamimah, taaweedkh, etc.) is a string of shells or beads that the pagan Arabs used to put around their children's necks, believing that it would protect them from the evil eye. Islam absolutely abolished this and all other superstitious practices, rites, and rituals of falsehoods. The Messenger of Allah (saws) called it a manifest form of shirk and invoked the curse of Allah against upon those who wore a taaweedh seeking its protection.
It is reported from Ibn Mas'ud that once, when he entered his home, he noticed his wife wearing a knotted object round her neck. He took it away and broke it. Then he remarked: 'The family of Abdullah has become so arrogant that they now associate with Allah those for whom He has sent down no authority.' I have heard the Messenger of Allah (saws) saying: 'Verily, incantations, amulets, and love charms are acts of shirk (associating gods with Allah).' The people said: 'O Abu Abdullah! We are familiar with incantations and amulets, but what is a love charm (altawlah)'?' He replied: 'It is a sort of magical formula by which women sought to gain their husbands' love'." (Related by Al-Hakim and Ibn Hibban).
Imran ibn Hasin reports that the Messenger of Allah (saws) saw a man wearing a bracelet of copper on his arm. The Prophet (saws) exclaimed to him: 'Woe be to you!' What is this? ' The man replied: 'I am suffering from weakness (al-wahinah).' (Al-wahinah is a disease that causes pain in the shoulders and hands. The man was wearing a copper bracelet believing it would relieve his pain and suffering). The Prophet (saws) prohibited him from wearing it because he regarded it as an amulet. The Prophet (saws) said: 'It will give you nothing but pain. Throw it away. Had you died while wearing it, you would never have achieved salvation! (ie. you would have died in the state of the unforgivable sin of shirk'" (Narrated by Ahmad)
Isa ibn Hamza said: I went to see Abdullah ibn Hakim and his face was red due to high fever. I said to him: 'Why don't you use an amulet?' He said: 'We seek refuge with Allah from it. The Messenger of Allah (saws) said: "Whoever wears anything as an amulet will be entrusted to it". (Narrated by Abu Daw'ud)
Your Statement: Before my illness was diagnosed, my parenst took me to a sheik or what ever it`s called,
If one has a computer breakdown, would it be intelligence or wisdom to take the broken computer to the chemist??? If one has a physical ailment, it is only prudent that one try to treat their ailment through the advice and treatment of a person qualified in the field of medicine. Seeking the help of a supposed religious priest or scholar for a physical ailment makes as much sense as taking a broken computer to a chemist!
To take a broken computer to a chemist for repairs is unwise in itself; but to top that and apply the remedy suggested by a chemist to repair a broken computer would be utter ignorance and foolhardy to say the least!
Your Question: BUt it doesn`t helped, and after a few months the doctors find out what my illness was. So my question is, that why are they saying thing like that if they can`t help you probobly.?
Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 9 Surah Taubah verses 34-35 :
O you who believe! There are indeed many among the priests and the holy men who devour the wealth of others by evil means, and debar the people from the Way of Allah. Give them the good news of a painful torment, who hoard up gold and silver and do not expend these in the Way of Allah. The Day shall surely come when the same gold and silver shall be heated in the fire of Hell, and with it will be branded their foreheads, their bodies and their backs. (And it will be said): Here is that treasure you had hoarded up for yourselves! Taste now the evil of your hoarded treasure!
Many amongst the supposed priests and sheikhs are unscrupulous, wear and display the garb of religion, but neither fear Allah Subhanah nor guide the people to the Straight Path of Allah. When an unsuspecting victim comes to them for any advice, they misguide them by pushing them into the supposed and self-invented maze and quagmire of magic, and jinns, and spells and charms and scare them sufficiently so that the unsuspecting victims would pay them whatever they ask in order to nominate the same priests to remove their supposed unseen evils from them!
These supposed unscrupulous priests are no more than merry fraudsters and conmen playing with the ignorance of their unsuspecting victims who assume them to be pious and God-fearing because of their garb of religion which they are foremost in displaying! These unscrupulous and supposed holy men con and fraud their victims in the name of Allah and Islam, and barter the Truth for a paltry worldly gain..Allah is our witness sister, they will have a severe retribution for their heinous crimes in the Court of the Lord Most Majestic, Most Supreme in whose Blessed Name these unscrupulous and evil people ply their unlawful trade!
Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 2 Surah Al-Baqarah verse 174:
Indeed those, who conceal the commands that Allah has sent down in His Book and barter them away for paltry worldly gains, fill their bellies with fire. Allah will not speak to them on the Day of Resurrection, nor will He regard them as pure and there is a painful torment for them!
If one trusts, obeys, and follows the guidance and commands of Allah and His Messenger (saws), one can be assured of never ever being misled; but if one believes, obeys and follows any other guidance, other than that of Allah and His Messenger (saws), one can be assured of being led astray.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
