SORCERY, BLACK MAJIC, SIHR AND JADOO

Sorcery is a major sin because the sorcerer must necessarily disbelieve, and the accursed Devil has no other motive for teaching a person witchcraft than that he might thereby ascribe associates to Allah.  

Allah, the Almighty, says,  

{Sulaimaan Alaihis Salaam did not disbelieve but Shaytaan disbelieved, teaching men magic, and such things as came down at Babylon to the angels Harut and Marut. But neither of these taught anyone (such things) without saying, 'We are only for trial,' so do not disbelieve.' They learned from them the means to sow discord between man and wife. But they could not harm anyone except by Allah's permission. And they learned what harmed them, not what profited them. And they knew that the buyers of (magic) would have no share in the happiness of the Hereafter.}                                                                                   (AI- Baqarah: 102)  

Thus, you might find some people who are astray delving in learning sorcery and thinking that it is just unlawful. Actually, they do not consider what they do as disbelief, but it is! They embark on learning all kinds of sorcery: Pure sorcery, increasing or decreasing the love between a man and a woman, making a man important and the like.  

 All of these practices are done by means of some unknown words, most of which lead to unbelief.

 The penalty for a sorcerer is to be killed. This is because he is an unbeliever.

Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam said,   

"Avoid the seven heinous sins.”     And he mentioned sorcery. Bukhari, Muslim, Tirmidhi and An- Nasa'i.   

"The penalty for a sorcerer is the sword.” Tirmidhi 

 Bijalah Ibn Abah related, 'Umar (may Allah be pleased with him) came to us one year before his death and said,  "Kill every sorcerer (male or female).” Abu Dawud 

Wahb Ibn Munabbih said, "I read in a book: 'Allah the Almighty says, 'There is no god but Me. He is not of Me who practices sorcery, or asks someone to practice with him. The one who foretells or the foretold, the one who seeks an omen or for whom an omen is sought.” AI- Haythami in "Majma' Az-Zawa'id to Al-Bazzar    

`Ali Ibn Abi Talib (may Allah be pleased with him) said, A for tuneteller is a sorcerer, a sorcerer is a disbeliever."  

 Abu Musa AI-Ashari, may Allah be pleased with him, related that Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam said,                                                     

"The drunkard, the one who severs the ties of kinship, and whoever believes in sorcery will not enter  Paradise.” Ahmad.       

Ibn Mas'ud (may Allah be pleased with him) related that the Prophet (pbuh) said,

"Incantations, amulets and spells are Shirk (polytheism).” Abu Dawud, Ibn Majah and Ahmad.     

These are treated as Shirk because the ignorant believes that these things can affect what has been  predetermined by Allah. However, AIKhattabi said, "Incantations or healing words are permitted if they consist of the Qur'an or the Most Beautiful Names of Allah."  

 Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam  used to recite (incantate) AI-Hasan and AlHusain by saying,    

"I seek refuge for you in Allah's Perfect Words from every Devil, beast or envious .” Bukhari

It was narrated that Abu Hurairah Radiallahu Anhu said:

"Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam used to encourage (us) to pray Qiyam (Taraaweeh) during Ramadan, without insisting on that, and he said: 'Whoever spends the nights of Ramadan in prayer (Qiyam) out of faith and in the hope of reward, he will be forgiven his previous sins'
