Black magic exists and is one of the oldest, most ancient practices of the world. It is heavily condemned and shunned in the realm of Islam. Islam has no place for anyone who consciously associates himself with dark magic, or any kind of sorcery, for that matter. If one is to ask about the origin of black magic, this verse from Surah Baqarah testifies to its existence and origin during Hazrat Solomon’s time:“And they followed [instead] what the devils had recited during the reign of Solomon. It was not Solomon who disbelieved, but the devils disbelieved, teaching people magic and that which was revealed to the two angels at Babylon, Harut and Marut. But the two angels do not teach anyone unless they say, "We are a trial, so do not disbelieve [by practicing magic]."(Quran 2:102)
Ever since the beginning of time, there have been those who, upon the whispers of satan, faltered from the path of righteousness, leading to Allah (SWT). They lost their faith in Allah’s (SWT) powers and instead, decided to take things into their own hands through the venomous practice of black magic. But why is it so heavily condemned in Islam? Here’s why:
1. Satanic practice
In the Quran, Allah (SWT) deems black magic to be one of the practices preached by satan himself. Satan misleads man into consorting with dark magic as a means to fulfill their needs and desires in this world and giving them a false sense of control, which in reality, they do not. What they do not know is the harm it will bring to them in the Hereafter, for they are too blind to see it.“And the people learn what harms them and does not benefit them. But the Children of Israel certainly knew that whoever purchased the magic would not have in the Hereafter any share. And wretched is that for which they sold themselves if they only knew” (Quran 2:102)
2. Only Allah (SWT) has the knowledge of the unseen
People use black magic as a means to know about the future and things that have not yet come to pass. But in reality, the knowledge of the unseen lies with Allah (SWT) and Allah (SWT) alone. To believe otherwise is to stray from the path of Islam. To rely on anything, or anyone, except Allah (SWT) is prohibited for only He knows what is best because His knowledge is complete. Only Allah (SWT) can foresee the future and see the unseen, His creation cannot."No one in the heavens or earth knows the unseen (ya'lam al-ghayb) except Allah" (Quran 27:65)
1. Dua; seek protection from Allah (SWT)
Make constant dua and ask Allah (SWT) for His protection, for only He has the power to save you from the harm brought about by black magic. Our Prophet (PBUH) used to constantly seek Allah’s refuge and shelter from evil and make the following dua:“O Allah, I seek refuge in You from all evil things, both male and female.” (Sahih Bukhari, vol 8, Book 75:326)
Never stop calling out to Allah (SWT), for only He has the cure for all things evil.
3. Surah Baqarah
Another source of protection against black magic is the recitation of Surah Baqarah from the Holy Quran. Abu Huraira reported:The Messenger of Allah, peace, and blessings be upon him, said, “Verily, Satan flees from the house in which is recited Surat Al-Baqarah” (Sahih Muslim, 780)
Every Muslim should make it a habit of reciting Surah Baqarah in the house as it expels all evil and jinns and protects one from the effects of black magic and satanic practices.
4. Recite the 3 QulsThe Messenger of Allah used to seek protection against the evil of jinn and the evil eyes till Surah Al-Falaq and Surah An-Nas were revealed. After they were revealed, he took to them for seeking Allah's protection and left everything besides them” (At-timidhi, Book 9, Hadith 25)
Abu Sa'id Al-Khudri narrated that our Holy Prophet (PBUH) said:"Surah Al-Ikhlas [Say: He is Allah (the) One] is equivalent to one-third of the Qur'an" (Sahih Bukhari, Book 9, Hadith 20)
Turn to Allah (SWT) and make it a habit of reciting these surahs from the Quran every single day, and inshaAllah you and your household will be protected from black magic.
In conclusion, Islam greatly condemns black magic for it is impure and it digresses heavily from the teachings of Allah (SWT) and the path of truth and purity. It only leads to more damage and destruction and strays the believer away from all that is good and blessed.
