The existence of the jinn is proven by the Book of Allaah and the Sunnah of His Messenger Muhammad (ﷺ),
and by the consensus of the salaf and scholars of this ummah.
Allaah has told us in His Book the essence from which the jinn were created.
He says ;
? ”And the jinn, We created aforetime from the smokeless flame o fire.”
”And the jinns did He create from a smokeless flame of fire.”
According to a hadeeth narrated by Ā’ishah رضي الله عنها the Prophet Muhammad (ﷺ) said:
? ”The angels were created from light, the jinn were created from fire, and Aadam was created from that which has been described to you.”
(Reported by Muslim, 5314).
The fact that jinn can enter human bodies is proven in the Quran and Sunnah (prophetic teachings), and by the consensus of Ahl al-Sunnah wal-Jama’ah (main body of Muslims who are united upon the sunnah), and by real-life events. No one disputes this apart from the Some deviant people who give priority to their own rational analysis over the evidence of the Quran and Sunnah.
Allah says :
? ”Those who eat riba’ (interest) will not stand (on the Day of Resurrection) except like the standing of a person beaten by Shaytan leading him to insanity. That is because they say: ‘Trading is only like Riba’…”
▶ Al-Qurtubi said in his Tafseer (exegesis): “This ayah (verse) is proof that those people are wrong who deny that epilepsy is caused by the jinn and claim that its causes are only physical, and that the Shaytan does not enter people or cause madness.”
Magic is performed by magicians taking help of Jinn. This usually involves jinn possessing the body of the man/ woman or jinn attacking people who are being targeted and disturbing their lives.
And in as-Saheeh it is narrated that the Prophet Muhammad (ﷺ)said:
? ’The Shaytan flows through the son of Adam as the blood flows through his veins.’
▶ ‘Abd-Allah ibn al-Imam Ahmad ibn Hanbal said: “I said to my father, ‘There are some people who say that the jinn do not enter the body of the epileptic.’ He said: ‘O my son, they are lying; the jinn could speak through this person.’” Commenting on this, Ibn Qudamah said: “What he said is well known, because a person may suffer an epileptic seizure and speak in a language that no one understands, and his body may be beaten with blows that would fell a camel, but the epileptic does not feel them at all, and he is also unaware of the words he is saying. The epileptic and others may be dragged about, or the carpet on which he is sitting may be pulled, and utensils may be moved about from place to place, and other things may happen. Anyone who witnesses such a thing will know for sure that the one who is speaking through the person and moving these things is not human.” And he said, may Allah have mercy on him: “There is no one among the imams (religious leaders/scholars) of the Muslims who denies that jinn may enter the body of the epileptic and others. Anyone who denies this and claims that Islam denies it is lying about Islam. There is nothing in the proofs of sharee’ah (Islamic law) to show that it does not happen. The Book Eating Magician
Those who deal with ruqyah (incantation) as prescribed in Islam have mentioned some of the symptoms from which it may be known whether a person has been possessed by the jinn . They are not definitive symptoms and may vary in some cases, and may be more or less in other cases.
It should be noted that if a person experiences some of the below 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, hence it is important that such a person should be taken to an expert for correct diagnosis.
Some of symptoms are stated below :
➖ ➖ ➖ ➖ ➖ ➖ ➖ ➖ ➖ ➖
Strong repulsion when hearing Qur’aan or Adhan (call for prayers).
Episodes of losing consciousness and/or epileptic attacks, especially when Qur’aan is recited for the possessed person.
Frequent disturbing nightmares during sleep.
Tendency to avoid people accompanied by out-of-the-norm behavior.
The jinn who possesses him might speak when Qur’aan is recited for the possessed person.
Madness, as stated in the Qur’aan (interpretation of the meaning): "Those who devour usury will not stand except as stands one whom Satan by his touch hath driven to [epileptic] madness…"
Dislike of one’s spouse, as indicated in the Qur’aan by the following verse (interpretation of the meaning): "And from these (angels) people learn that by which they cause separation between a man and his wife..."
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.
The devil who is dwelling in him may speak when Quran is recited over him.
➖ ➖ ➖ ➖
The Qur’aan is the complete healing for all mental, spiritual and physical diseases, all diseases of this world and the Hereafter. But not everyone is guided to use it for the purpose of healing. If the sick person uses the Qur’aan for healing in the proper way, and applies it to his disease with sincerity, faith, complete acceptance and firm conviction, fulfilling all its conditions, then no disease can resist it.
How can disease resist the words of the Lord of heaven and earth which, if He had revealed it to the mountains they would have crumbled and if He had revealed it to the earth it would have broken it apart?
There is no sickness, spiritual or physical, but in the Qur’aan there is that which indicates its remedy, its cause and how to protect against it for those who are blessed with understanding of His Book.
In the Qur’aan there may be healing for all ills, by Allaah’s leave. There is a great deal of evidence for that, for example Allaah says :
? ”Say: ‘It is for those who believe, a guide and a healing’”
قُلْ هُوَ لِلَّذِينَ آمَنُوا هُدًى وَشِفَاءٌ
”And We send down of the Qur’aan that which is a healing and a mercy to those who believe”
وَنُنَزِّلُ مِنَ الْقُرْآنِ مَا هُوَ شِفَاءٌ وَرَحْمَةٌ لِلْمُؤْمِنِينَ ۙ
However It should also be noted that when faith grows weak, the soul’s acceptance of remedies prescribed in sharee’ah also grows weak.
People nowadays have begun to rely on physical medicines more than on the spiritual remedies prescribed in Islam. But when faith is strong, the spiritual remedies prescribed in Islam have a more complete effect; their effect may be faster than that of physical medicines.
”We are all aware of the story of the man whom the Messenger Muhammad (ﷺ) sent on a campaign. He camped near some Arabs, but those people near whom he camped did not show him any hospitality. Allaah willed that their chief should be stung by a snake, and they said to one another,
“Go to those people who are camped (near us), maybe you will find a raaqi (one who recites ruqyah, i.e., incantations or prayers for healing) with them.”
The Ṣaḥābah رضوان الله عليهم أجمعين said to them,
“We will not recite ruqyah for your chief until you give us such and such number of sheep.”
Then one of the Sahaabah went and recited over the one who had been stung; he recited Soorat al-Faatihah only, then that person who had been stung got up as if he was released from a chain.”
This recitation of al-Faatihah had such an effect in this man because it came from a heart that was filled with faith. When they came back, the Prophet Muhammad (ﷺ) said,
“How did you know that it is a ruqyah?”
But in our own times there is this weakness of religious commitment and faith, and people have started to rely on outward physical matters, and this is causing them further suffering.
On the other hand there are those who cheat people and deceive them, claiming to be pious reciters of Qur’aan, but they consume people’s wealth unlawfully. People are of two extremes, one which thinks that recitation of Qur’aan has no effect at all, and the other extreme composed of cheaters who deceive people by reciting devious recitations, and some are moderate.
➖ ➖ ➖ ➖ ➖ ➖ ➖
For curing the black magic we have somthing called Shari Ruqyah.
Ruqyah means reciting Qur’an and saying supplications reported from the Muhammad (ﷺ) as proven from Sahih hadeeth over the sick seeking to be cured;
▪ In addition to other good and lawful supplications,
▪ All the Glorious Qur’an is blessed and can be recited as Ruqyah.
▪ Al-Fatihah (Opening Chapter of the Qur’an).
▪ Surah Al-Ikhlas and Al-Mu`awwidhatayn can be recited as Ruqyah.
The Prophet Muhammad (ﷺ) is reported to have used all these Ayahs and soorahs and urged his followers to use them, especially Al-Fatihah because it is the Mother of the Qur’an and is the best Surah. Also, Ayat-ul-Kursy is the best Ayah. The Prophet Muhammad (ﷺ) guided us to recite Ayat-ul-Kursy after every Salah (Prayer) and before sleeping. The Prophet Muhammad (ﷺ) also used to recite Surah Al-Ikhlas and Al-Mu`awwidhatayn three times before going to sleep. He (ﷺ) would recite and blow in his hands and pass his hands on his head, face and the front part of his body.
The Prophet Muhammad (ﷺ) said:
? ”Anyone who recites these three Surahs (Surahs Al-Ikhlas, Al-Falaq, and Al-Nas) at the beginning of the night or day, nothing harmful will touch or befall them.”
(Abu dawood and Tirmidhi) All this is Mashru` (Islamically permissible).
It is also authentically reported that the Ṣaḥābah رضوان الله عليهم أجمعين (Companions of the Prophet Muhammad) used only Al-Fatihah for Ruqyah and Allah granted healing.
Bath using seven lotus-tree leaves:
➖ ➖ ➖ ➖ ➖ ➖ ➖ ➖ ➖
To cure black magic some have successfully used seven lotus-tree leaves. The leaves should be crushed, then mixed them with water enough for taking a bath. The following verses from the Qur’aan are then recited:
▪ Verse Al-Kursi (2:255),
▪ Surah Al-Kafiroon (109),
▪ Surah 112, 113, 114;
the verses which mention magic, which are:
▪ In surah Al-Baqarah (2:102) and 2:285-286,
▪ Al-A’raaf (7:117-119),
▪ Yunus (10:79-82),
▪ Taha (20:65-69).
The possessed person drinks some of the water, and the rest is used to give him a bath.
Conditions of acceptable Ruqyah Shari’ah:
➖ ➖ ➖ ➖ ➖ ➖ ➖ ➖ ➖
The Ruqyah that is acceptable in the Sharee'ah is that which fulfills three conditions:
The Ruqyah must be done with the Quran, with the Names and Attributes of Allaah The Almighty, or with a supplication reported on the authority of the Prophet Muhammad (ﷺ)
The Ruqyah must be composed of comprehensive Arabic words because it is not appropriate to use a language other than Arabic in supplication. It is only permissible for those who are not fluent in Arabic.Using foreign words in Ruqyah is unacceptable.
It must be known that Ruqyah has no effect on its own, but it is effective only by the will of Allaah The Almighty.
Once these three conditions are fulfilled, it becomes a valid Ruqyah. The Prophet Muhammad (ﷺ) mentioned that Ruqyah is permissible, provided that it does not include any of the features of Shirk (polytheism).
The most beneficial and effective Ruqyah is that which is recited by the afflicted person himself, and this is supported by texts from the Quran and Sunnah (tradition).
Listening to Ruqyah Shari’ah through recordings:
➖ ➖ ➖ ➖ ➖ ➖ ➖ ➖ ➖
Ruqyah cannot be achieved by listening to recorded tapes without a person performing the Ruqyah, even though it is good to listen to the Quran tapes.
This is the principle proven by evidence and which the scholars acted upon.
Pillars Of Ruqyah:
➖ ➖ ➖ ➖ ➖ ➖ ➖
There are three pillars for Ruqyah:
The person who performs Ruqyah,
The means used during Ruqyah,
The person on whom Ruqyah is performed.
The effect of Ruqyah is dependant on the piety and righteousness of the person who performs it, and this is something that could not be achieved by recorded tapes, whether the Ruqyah is performed on a person, on water, on oil and so forth.
Reciting Ruqyah over water:
➖ ➖ ➖ ➖ ➖ ➖ ➖ ➖ ➖ ➖ ➖
There is nothing wrong with reciting Ruqyah over water which the patient then drinks or washes themselves with. All this is permissible. Ruqyah should be performed for a patient by reciting and blowing over them; it can also be made over water which the patient then drinks or washes with. All this is permissible. It is authentically reported that Prophet Muhammad Muhammad (ﷺ) performed Ruqyah for Thabit ibn Qays ibn Shamas by reciting over water and then pouring it on him. If one performs Ruqyah for his brother on water then makes him drink it or pours it on him, it is hoped that Allah will heal him and he will recover thereby.
Reciting Ruqyah and blowing over patient:
➖ ➖ ➖ ➖ ➖ ➖ ➖ ➖ ➖ ➖
Also, if a patient performs Ruqyah for themselves by reciting over the sick part of the body, whether their hand, leg or chest, then blows over it and supplicates to Allah to heal them, this is all good.
One should blow breath over the sick part while supplicating for the patient; to blow some wet breath and;
▪ Recite Al-Fatihah and repeat it seven times (as proven from salaf ).
▪ Also, to recite Ayat-ul-Kursy (the Qur’anic Verse of Allah’s Chair, Surah Al-Baqarah, 2:255)
▪ And as much as they can of the Qur’an;
▪ Recite Surah Al-Ikhlas and Al-Mu`awwidhatayn and repeat them three times while blowing.
The Prophet Muhammad (ﷺ) used to recite over the sick and so did the Ṣaḥābah رضوان الله عليهم أجمعين (Companions of the Prophet). Performing Ruqyah and supplicating for a sick person is one of the means for healing; using the supplications reported from the Prophet Muhammad (ﷺ) are causes to bring healing.
Proven Authentic du’aas to cure magic:
➖ ➖ ➖ ➖ ➖ ➖ ➖ ➖ ➖ ➖ ➖
Moreover From authentic hadeeth there are many useful proven du’aas , which are useful in curing magic , Some other useful duaas:
It was narrated from Ummul Mo’mineen Sayyida Ā’ishah رضي الله عنها that when any of us fell sick, the Messenger of Allaah Muhammad (ﷺ) would wipe him with his right hand then say:
? ”Adhhib il-ba’s, Rabbi l-naas washfi anta al-Shaafi laa shifaa’a illa shifaa’uka shifaa’an laa yughaadir saqaman(Remove the harm, O Lord of mankind and heal him, for You are the Healer and there is no healing except Your healing, with a healing which does not leave any disease behind).”
( أَذهِبِ البَاسَ ، رَبَّ النَّاسِ ، وَاشفِ أَنتَ الشَّافِي ، لا شِفَاءَ إِلا شِفَاؤُكَ ، شِفَاءً لَا يُغَادِرُ سَقَمًا )

It was narrated from ‘Uthmaan ibn Abi’l-‘Aas al-Thaqafi that he complained to the Messenger of Allaah Muhammad (ﷺ) about some pain that he had felt in his body since he became Muslim. The Messenger of Allaah Muhammad (ﷺ) said to him:
? ”Put your hand on the part of your body that hurts and say: ‘Bismillaah (in the name of Allaah)’ three times, then say seven times: ‘I seek refuge in Allaah and His Power from the evil of what I find and I fear.’” Narrated by Muslim (2202).

It was narrated that Abu’l-Darda’ (may Allaah be pleased with him) said: I heard the Messenger of Allaah Muhammad (ﷺ) say: ? ”Whoever among you suffers some sickness, or his brother suffers some sickness, let him say: ‘Our Lord Allaah Who is in heaven, hallowed be Your name, You will is done in heaven and on earth; as Your mercy is in heaven, bestow it upon the earth. Forgive us our sins. You are the Lord of the good. Send down some Your mercy and healing upon this pain,’ and he will be healed.” Narrated by Abu Dawood (3892); classed as saheeh by al-Haakim in al-Mustadrak (4/243) and as hasan by Ibn Taymiyah in Majmoo’ al-Fataawa (3/139).

And you will find more supplications in Hisnul Muslim published by Darussalam .
Healing through eating dates:
➖ ➖ ➖ ➖ ➖ ➖ ➖ ➖ ➖ ➖ ➖
Also 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.
Healing through Cupping:
➖ ➖ ➖ ➖ ➖ ➖ ➖ ➖ ➖ ➖
Cupping--removing excess blood also helps in removal of Shir .
This is the Shar`y (Islamically lawful) Ruqyah. Any similar method is permissible , These supplications is said along with hope that Allah makes it beneficial, accepts it and heals the patient.
The person performing Ruqyah should have faith that Allah is the Healer and these are only means.
If trust in Allaah is combined with thinking of the meanings of the verses and du’aa’s that are being recited, and both the one who is doing ruqya and the one for whom it is done are righteous people, that will be very beneficial, if Allaah wills.
Allaah says :
? ”O mankind! There has come to you a good advice from your Lord (i.e. the Qur’aan, enjoining all that is good and forbidding all that is evil), and a healing for that which is in your hearts”
يَا أَيُّهَا النَّاسُ قَدْ جَاءَتْكُمْ مَوْعِظَةٌ مِنْ رَبِّكُمْ وَشِفَاءٌ لِمَا فِي الصُّدُورِ وَهُدًى وَرَحْمَةٌ لِلْمُؤْمِنِينَ

You should go to scholars who treat by means of Quran and a sunnah and the method has been explained above , it is haram to go to such people who claim to know unseen and Perform strange action and claim that they are doing good , infact they are taking help of devils themselves and indulging in Kufr. Please note that Astrology, palm-reading, reading coffee cups, divination, and other things practised by fortunetellers and practitioners of witchcraft are all sciences of jaahiliyyah which are forbidden by Allaah and His Messenger Muhammad (ﷺ) and are actions which Islam came to declare false and warn against doing them or going to those who do them and asking them about anything or believing what they say – because that is knowledge of the unseen which Allaah has kept to Himself.
Rasūlullāh ﷺ said:
? ”Whoever goes to a soothsayer and asks him about something and believes him, his prayer will not be accepted for forty days.”
(Narrated by Muslim in his Saheeh).
Undoubtedly fortunetelling, witchcraft and astrology are among the most serious of evil actions and corruption on earth and harming the Muslims unlawfully. Imam Ahmad in his Musnad (9171), which says that the Rasūlullāh ﷺ said:
? ”Whoever comes to a fortune-teller or soothsayer and believes him has disbelieved in that which was revealed to Muhammad.”
Classed as saheeh by al-Albaani in Saheeh al-Jaami’, 5942.
This is a branch of magic which involve taking help from Shayateen which is further confirmed by Hadeeth narrated by Abu Dawood in his Sunan with a saheeh isnaad from Ibn ‘Abbaas (may Allaah be pleased with him), that the Messenger of Allaah Muhammad (ﷺ) said:
? ”Whoever learns anything of astrology has learned a branch of witchcraft (al-sihr)…”
And al-Bazzaar narrated with a jayyid isnaad from ‘Imraan ibn Husayn that the Messenger of Allaah Muhammad (ﷺ) said:
? ”He is not one of us who practises augury or has it done for him, who tells fortunes or has his fortune told, or who practises witchcraft or has that done for him.”
Whoever claims to know some matter of the unseen either is a fortune-teller or is acting like a fortune-teller in some sense, because Allaah is the only One Who has knowledge of the unseen.
Allaah says :
? ”Say: ‘None in the heavens and the earth knows the Ghayb (Unseen) except Allaah…’”
Al-Bukhaari narrated in hisSaheeh (hadeeth no. 4477) that Ummul Mo’mineen Sayyida Ā’ishah رضي الله عنها
? ”Whoever tells you that he knows what will happen tomorrow is lying.” Then she recited, “No person knows what he will earn tomorrow.”
However, we do not deny that some of what the astrologer says about future events may sometimes be correct and may sometimes happen as he foretold; but that does not mean that the path he is following is valid. Rather what he happens to get right is baseless and comes about by pure coincidence. What he gets right is very little in comparison to the lies that accompany it.
Do you not see that the Prophet Muhammad (ﷺ) has told us that the jinn who eavesdrop (on the angels) may hear something of what the angels talk about of future events, and the jinni may send down what he has heard to the soothsayer on earth, or the jinni may be burned before he can do that? Yet despite that, soothsaying is a major sin, because it deals with matters of the unseen without any shar‘i basis.
It was narrated from Ā’ishah رضي الله عنها the wife of the Prophet Muhammad (ﷺ)
that she heard the Messenger of Allah Muhammad (ﷺ) say:
? ”The angels come down in the clouds and discuss matters that have been decreed in heaven, and the devils may eavesdrop and hear it, then they convey it to the soothsayers, and they tell along with it one hundred lies that they have fabricated by themselves.”
Narrated by al-Bukhaari, no. 3210
The Prophet Muhammad (ﷺ)explained how the jinn steal this word. He said:
? ”......when our Lord, may His name be blessed and exalted, decrees some matter, the bearers of the Throne glorify Him, then the people of heaven who are closest to them glorify Him, until the tasbeeh reaches the people of the lowest heaven. Then those who are nearest to the bearers of the Throne say: What did your Lord say? And they tell them what He said. And the people of heaven ask one another for the news, until the news reaches the lowest heaven. Then the eavesdropping jinn snatch what they can and convey it to their familiars. What they narrated as they heard it is true, but they add lies to it.”
Narrated by Muslim (2229).
From this it is clear that the jinn do not have knowledge of the unseen, rather they steal words that they hear from the angels, but the angels themselves do not have any knowledge of that unless Allaah tells them of it. After they are told of it, it is no longer regarded as unseen in the absolute sense, but before that they are like anyone else in creation and do not know anything of the unseen. This depends on Allaah’s telling them of it.
Allaah says :
? ”(He Alone is) the All‑Knower of the Ghayb (Unseen), and He reveals to none His Ghayb (Unseen)”
The most strongest view is that who ever performs magic become a kafir also it is haraam to deal with such matters or to go to find out about them or to believe in them.
“Ibn Abidin adds that according to the Hanafis, Imam Malik and Imam Ahmed, a person falls into disbelief by learning or engaging in magic, regardless of whether he deems it unlawful or not. Imam Shafi`i, however, said he is not deemed a disbeliever unless he actually deems magic as lawful.”
The wealth earned by doing acts of soothsaying and astrology is haraam and It is haraam to pay them money, and anyone who is suffering from any of these things must hasten to repent from it this also involves following astrology and reading daily horoscope as well . The wise person should never be deceived by what happens at the hands of these astrologers, soothsayers, fortune tellers or magicians; rather he must keep away from them and not believe in them..
Whoever goes to a fortuneteller or soothsayer and believes what he says and believes that he has knowledge of the unseen has committed a Major sin which may lead a person to kufr in some cases, You should also be aware that if you depend on what soothsayer says, Allaah the Almighty will leave your being relieved to soothsayer, and He will deprive you of His guidance, care and success. It is narrated that the Prophet Muhammad (ﷺ) said that:
? ”anyone who resorts to other than Allaah (for help), He will pin his matter to that which he resorted to, and that the person does not get what they wish for.”
However,the door of repentance is open, as the Prophet Muhammad (ﷺ) said:
? ”Allaah will accept the repentance of His slave so long as the death rattle has not reached his throat.”
Allah knows best
