What is Sihr? Part 2

Sihr is the negative use of Jinn powered by jealous and malicious human beings, whose main objective is to harm or deprive others of something, or influence them to do something wrong or negative. Magic is the use of certain devices or tactics or materials to affect people’s minds so as to see what is unreal and believe it to be reality.

Sihr actually is an agreement set up between a magician and Satan which requires that the magician commit certain illegal or polytheistic acts, such as swearing to seek refuge in shaytan or slaughtering in his name, writing Qur’an with filth, rewriting the words of one of the surah of the Qur’an backwards and so on. In return for this great disbelief in Allah SWT, Satan gives his assistance in fulfilling the magician’s request.

Black magic is one of the most horrible, tragic sufferings one can experience in life. But it is important to remember that magic and Jinn possession only occur if it is Allah's will. "But they could not harm anyone except by Allah's permission." [Quran 2:102]

The one who wants sihr performed goes to the magician and asks him to perform magic on someone. At this point the magician asks him for the name of the person on whom he wants him to perform witchcraft, and the name of his/her mother, and for something that belongs to him, such as some hair, nails, clothing or his picture or even their home address.

But why does the witch ask about mother’s name, and not the father’s name as he should? And how does a magician use these belongings? What if the victim is righteous and pious, fearing Allah, and he recite the Qur’an and Dhikr daily? Does the magic still affect him?

We will be discussing this issue and much more in our course Unchained: Believer’s Weapon Against Dark Forces and in our upcoming posts insha Allah.
