Sihr and its cure

A person struck by magic might experience the following:

Dislike of one’s spouse, as indicated in the Qur’an by the following verse, "And from these (angels) people learn that by which they cause separation between a man and his wife..." (Al-Baqarah, 2:102).

Different attitude in the house from that which is outside the house. For example, a person will feel that he is missing his family when is outside the house but when he goes home, love changes quickly to extreme hatred.

Inability to have sexual intercourse with one’s spouse.

Frequent miscarriage for pregnant women.

Sudden change in behavior without obvious reason.

Complete loss of appetite for food.

Thinking or imagining one has done something when in reality one has not.

Sudden obedience and/or love for a particular person.

It should be noted that if a person experiences some of the above symptoms this does not necessarily mean that he is either possessed by a jinn or struck by black magic. It might be due to physiological or psychological reasons.

As for curing this condition the following steps are recommended:
1) Putting one’s trust in Allah with sincere belief that He is the only cure for everything.

2) Reading Qur’aan and known supplications expressing seeking refuge, the most important and effective of which are:
a. Soorat al-Faatihah
b. Aayat al-Kursiy from Soorat al-Baqarah,
c. The verses from Soorat al-A’raaf, [al-A’raaf 7:106-122]
d. The verses from Soorat Yoonus, (Yoonus 10:79-82)
e. The verses from Soorat Ta-Ha, [Ta-Ha 20:65-69]
f. Soorat al-Kaafiroon
g. Soorat al-Ikhlaas and al-Mi’wadhatayn (i.e., Soorat al-Falaq and Soorat al-Naas) – to be recited three times.
h. Reciting some of the du’aa’s prescribed in sharee’ah, such as:
“Allaahumma Rabb al-Naas, adhhib al-ba’s wa’shfi, anta al-Shaafiy, laa shifaa’a illa shifaa’uka, shifaa’an laa yughaadiru saqaman (O Allaah, Lord of
mankind, remove the evil and grant healing, for You are the Healer. There is no healing except Your healing, which does not leave any sickness).”

2) Removing the elements of magic as was done by the Prophet when he was struck by black magic by a Jewish man called Lubaid Ben Al-‘Aasim.

3) Eating seven Aa’liya Al-Barniy dates (among the dates of Al-Madinah) first thing in the morning; if not possible, any dates will suffice, by the will of Allaah.

4) Cupping--removing excess blood.

5) Supplications.

And I ask Allaah to cure those who are suffering with evil eye and magic and ease their hardship, as He is the One who cures and there is no one else who can cure.
