    Default What is the treatment for someone who has been affected by sihr (magic

    Question:
    What is the treatment for someone who has been affected by sihr (magic or witchcraft, including spells aimed at causing hatred or love)? How can the believer save himself from this or avoid being harmed by it? Are there any du’aa’s or dhikrs from the Qur’aan or Sunnah for these things?

    Answer:

    Praise be to Allaah.

    There are different kinds of treatment:

    1 – He can look at what the saahir (person who practices sihr) has done. For example, if he has put some of his hair in a place, or in a comb, or somewhere else, if it is discovered that he has put it in such-and-such a place, it should be removed and burnt or destroyed. This will cancel out what has been done and will foil the intentions of the saahir.

    2 –The saahir should be forced to undo what he has done, if his identity is known. It should be said to him, “Either you undo what you have done, or you will be executed.” After he has undone it, he should still be executed by the authorities, because the saahir should be killed without being asked to repent, according to the correct view. This is what was done by ‘Umar, and it was narrated that the Messenger (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “The punishment of the saahir is to strike him with the sword (i.e., execute him).” When Hafsah Umm al-Mu’mineen (may Allaah be pleased with her) found out that a slave woman of hers was dealing with sihr, she killed her.

    3 – Reciting Qur’aan, for it has a great effect in removing (the effects of) sihr. Aayat al-Kursiy, the aayahs of sihr from Soorat al-A’raaf, Soorat Yoonus and Soorat Ta-Ha, Soorat al-Kaafiroon, Soorat al-Ikhlaas and al-Mi’wadhatayn should be recited over the person who has been affected by sihr, or into a vessel. Du’aa’ should be made for healing and good health; in particular the du’aa’ which has been narrated from the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him):

    “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).”

    One may also recite the words used by Jibreel when he treated the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) with ruqyah:

    “Bismillaah urqeek, min kulli shay’in yu’dheek, wa min sharri kulli nafsin aw ‘aynin haasidin Allaah yushfeek, bismillaah urqeek (In the name of Allaah I perform ruqyah for you, from everything that is harming you, from the evil of every soul or envious eye may Allaah heal you, in the name of Allaah I perform ruqyah for you).”

    This should be repeated three times, as should the recitation of “Qul Huwa Allaah Ahad” and al-Mi’wadhatayn.

    He may also recite the above into water, some of which should be drunk by the person who has been affected by sihr, and he should wash with the rest, one or more times as needed. This will remove the sihr by Allaah’s Leave. This was mentioned by the scholars (may Allaah have mercy on them), and by Shaykh ‘Abd al-Rahmaan ibn Hasan (may Allaah have mercy on him) in Fath al-Majeed Sharh Kitaab al-Tawheed, in (the chapter entitled) Baab Ma jaa’a fi’l-Nushrah, and by others.

    4 – He can take seven green lotus leaves, grind them up, and put them into water, then recite into it the aayahs and soorahs mentioned above, and the du’aa’s. Then he can drink some and wash with the rest. This is also useful for treating a man who is being kept from having intercourse with his wife. Seven green lotus leaves should be placed in water, the verses referred to above should be recited into it, then he should drink from it and wash with it. This is beneficial, by Allaah’s leave.

    The verses which should be recited into the water and the lotus leaves for those who have been affected by sihr and the one who is being prevented from having intercourse with his wife because of sihr are as follows:

    1- Soorat al-Faatihah

    2- Aayat al-Kursiy from Soorat al-Baqarah, which is as follows (interpretation of the meaning):

    “Allaah! Laa ilaaha illa Huwa (none has the right to be worshipped but He), Al-Hayyul-Qayyum (the Ever Living, the One Who sustains and protects all that exists). Neither slumber nor sleep overtakes Him. To Him belongs whatever is in the heavens and whatever is on the earth. Who is he that can intercede with Him except with His Permission? He knows what happens to them (His creatures) in this world, and what will happen to them in the Hereafter. And they will never compass anything of His Knowledge except that which He wills. His Kursiy extends over the heavens and the earth, and He feels no fatigue in guarding and preserving them. And He is the Most High, the Most Great” (al-Baqarah 2:255)

    3- The verses from Soorat al-A’raaf, which are as follows (interpretation of the meaning):

    “[Pharaoh] said: ‘If you have come with a sign, show it forth, if you are one of those who tell the truth.’

    Then [Moosa] threw his stick and behold! it was a serpent, manifest!

    And he drew out his hand, and behold! it was white (with radiance) for the beholders.

    The chiefs of the people of Pharaoh said: ‘This is indeed a well-versed sorcerer;

    He wants to get you out of your land, so what do you advise?’

    They said: ‘Put him and his brother off (for a time), and send callers to the cities to collect —

    That they bring to you all well-versed sorcerers.’

    And so the sorcerers came to Pharaoh. They said: ‘Indeed there will be a (good) reward for us if we are the victors.’

    He said: ‘Yes, and moreover you will (in that case) be of the nearest (to me).’

    They said: ‘O Moosa! Either you throw (first), or shall we have the (first) throw?’

    He [Moosa] said: ‘Throw you (first).’ So when they threw, they bewitched the eyes of the people, and struck terror into them, and they displayed a great magic.

    And We revealed to Moosa (saying): ‘Throw your stick,’ and behold! It swallowed up straight away all the falsehood which they showed.

    Thus truth was confirmed, and all that they did was made of no effect.

    So they were defeated there and returned disgraced.

    And the sorcerers fell down prostrate.

    They said: ‘We believe in the Lord of the ‘Aalameen (mankind, jinn and all that exists).

    The Lord of Moosa and Haaroon (Aaron).’” [al-A’raaf 7:106-122]

    4- The verses from Soorat Yoonus, which are as follows (interpretation of the meaning):

    “And Pharaoh said: ‘Bring me every well-versed sorcerer.’

    And when the sorcerers came, Moosa said to them: ‘Cast down what you want to cast!’

    Then when they had cast down, Moosa said: ‘What you have brought is sorcery, Allaah will surely make it of no effect. Verily, Allaah does not set right the work of Al-Mufsidoon.

    And Allaah will establish and make apparent the truth by His Words, however much the Mujrimoon may hate (it).’” (Yoonus 10:79-82)

    5- The verses from Soorat Ta-Ha, which are as follows (interpretation of the meaning):

    “They said: ‘O Moosa! Either you throw first or we be the first to throw?’

    [Moosa] said: ‘Nay, throw you (first)!’ Then behold! their ropes and their sticks, by their magic, appeared to him as though they moved fast.

    So Moosa conceived fear in himself.

    We (Allaah) said: ‘Fear not! Surely, you will have the upper hand.

    And throw that which is in your right hand! It will swallow up that which they have made. That which they have made is only a magician’s trick, and the magician will never be successful, to whatever amount (of skill) he may attain’” [Ta-Ha 20:65-69]

    6- Soorat al-Kaafiroon

    7- Soorat al-Ikhlaas and al-Mi’wadhatayn (i.e., Soorat al-Falaq and Soorat al-Naas) – to be recited three times.

    8- 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).”

    This is good, and it may also be accompanied by the du’aa’:

    “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).”

    If the above verses etc. are recited directly over the person who has been affected by sihr, then the reciter blows on his head and chest, these are also among the means of healing, by Allaah’s Leave, as stated above.

    Default Re: What is the treatment for someone who has been affected by sihr (magic

    After i got married to my husband things started to go seriously wrong things that i never could make sense of,
    i was always tired all i wanted to do was sleep, i had nightmares everynight and became very afraid of the dark and night, i used to get blackouts and felt as thought physically there was something very wrong with me.
    after going to the doctors and having various tests and check ups i was absolutely shocked to find out that i in fact was as healthy as i could ever be.
    the doctors could not explain why was feeling like that nor having the blackouts nightmares etc.
    So someone in my family mentioned that it was very common in Pakistani families which is the background of my husband to do jaddu and that got me even more freaked out!!!
    I was lost afraid and had no clue what to do so i did my own research and Alhumdullilah Allah swt really does bestow true knowledge on you out of His mercy.

    First and foremost you have to remember that no harm can touch you or no good can come to you if it is not in the will of Allah swt.

    when i was doing my research in the ways of repelling and healing from sihr the main and most convenient and available way was to go to a mosque and unfortunately many mosques nowadays have imams that offer to give you taweez and get protection against sihr by a taweez.

    now i do not know how clear to make this and how much to emphasise this to my fellow believing brothers and sisters TAWEEZ IS SHIRK!!!
    whether it has ayahs from the Holy Qur'an or Allah swt's name written on it or anything!!!
    firstly when u get the taweez the imam also known as the alim asks for names most of the times your name and your mother's name this is when you start thinking!
    hello if it is to protect me with the words of Allah swt, the Almighty Lord knows who i am why would He need the names? Cos its not Him swt that needs the names it is the jinns!!! apparently when you get a taweez t is folded in a certain way and has certain surahs written on it but yet you are not allowed to see it or open it cos otherwise it would not work, but just by ignorance wear it and believe that the evil of sihr has been repelled from me.

    if that is the case then i suggest that people who are thinking of reverting into islam should just get a taweez with the shahada written on it and just wear it without even uttering it with their mouths and hearts cos apparently wearing it has the same affect.

    taweez is in itself a form of sihr cos it is not Allah swt that is being invoked to help you it is the shayatin! If you were invoking Allah swt there would be no need for it to be written on a piece of paper, the ideal why would be for them to tell you what surahs to recite and for you to do it with the true intention in your heart. What gets you really thinking is why is this alim reciting some surahs out load then whispering some???


    sihr is an act of a disbeliever and is a major major sin! and trying to repel sihr with sihr makes the victim who is suffering from the causes of sihr a disbelieving sinner too.

    the only way of treating sihr is by doing the only thing that we should be doing and that is invoking Allah swt and asking Him to protect us from it and repel away from us.

    being steadfast in salah and along with reciting the above verses of the Qur'an that TRESBIEN mentioned the most important 2 that was forgotten to be mentioned was surah al falaq and an nas surah al falaq was especially revealed to the prophet saw in order to cure him from the affects or sihr.

    you have to remember that there are different types of sihr and each one has a different affect or depending on who it is done by different levels of affects i would say.
    and if the victim is in a very bad state then it is necessary for him or her to be taken to a muslim ruqya healer and an exorcism to be done cos in the serious cases then it is a case where the jinn that has been appointed to do the job on that certain person has possessed the person, cos sihr is all the work of the shayatin and not the work of the old woman that u go to who has "special" powers that can make someone fall in love with you.

    Sihr is the work of the kafiroon anyone involved in doing it or getting it done for them are kafir even if they think themselves to be believers and their eternal obode in is Hell.

    Sihr has major major comebacks please brothers and sisters in this case i know it would be stereotyping to say sisters more but it is a known fact that women are more involved so called muslim women in conducting sihr than men. If the thought ever crosses ur mind to get it done to someone for whatever reason no matter what you are going through in life it is nothing but a whisper from the Shaytaan and refrain from it cos it is a major sin!!! With major comebacks cos Allah swt is the All-seer All Knower and Aware of what you do and by going to those extremes you are doing no one else wrong but your own selves.

    a brilliant book to read on the real treatment of sihr is sword against black magic and evil magician.

    at that time in my life i tried to search for many ways and i came across several ways through the net that didnt make sense to me almost most of them had something to do with anything other than actual Quranic healing. But the above book did just that it explains everything in absolute detail and gives you ways to cure and repell sihr by the Qur'an.

    i pray that InshaAllah Allah swt bestows His mercy and forgiveness upon the sisters an brothers that are victims of such attacks and cures them immediately.

    Praise be to Allaah.

    Firstly, we could not find the ahaadeeth whose soundness the questioner asked about, because we do not know the text of those ahaadeeth. He said that they were in volume 50 of al-Muwatta’, but al-Muwatta’ is only one volume.

    Hence we will quote what we are able to of the ahaadeeth that have been narrated on this topic, and we will explain – in sha Allaah – the rulings of the scholars on them. Hopefully some of this will be what the questioner is looking for.

    1. It was narrated from ‘Abd-Allaah ibn Mas’ood that the Prophet of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said:

    “The Prophet of Allah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) disliked ten things: Yellow colouring, meaning khalooq (a perfume made from saffron), dyeing grey hair, trailing the lower garment, wearing a gold ring, throwing dice, a woman adorning herself before people who are not her mahrams, using spells (ruqyah) except with the Mu'awwidhatan, wearing amulets, coitus interruptus, and having intercourse with a woman who is breastfeeding a child; but he did not declare them to be prohibited.”

    (Narrated by al-Nasaa’i, 50880; Abu Dawood, 4222)

    “having intercourse with a woman who is breastfeeding a child” means, if she becomes pregnant this will harm the child who is breastfeeding.

    This hadeeth was classed as da’eef (weak) by al-Albaani in Da’eef al-Nasaa’i, 3075)

    2. It was narrated from Zaynab the wife of ‘Abd-Allaah ibn Mas’ood from ‘Abd-Allaah that he said:

    “I heard the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) say, ‘Spells (ruqyah), amulets and love-charms are shirk.” I said, “Why do you say this? By Allaah, my eye was weeping with a discharge and I kept going to So and so, the Jew, who did a spell for me. When he did the spell, it calmed down.” ‘Abd-Allaah said: “That was just the work of the Shaytaan who was picking it with his hand, and when (the Jew) uttered the spell, he stopped. All you needed to do was to say as the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) used to say: ‘Adhhib il-ba’s Rabb al-naas ishfi anta al-Shaafi laa shifaa’a illa shifaa’uka shifaa’an laa yughaadiru saqaman (Remove the harm, O Lord of mankind, and heal, You are the Healer. There is no healing but Your healing, a healing which leaves no disease behind.’”

    (Narrated by Abu Dawood, 3883; Ibn Maajah, 3530)

    This hadeeth was classed as saheeh by al-Albaani in al-Silsilat al-Saheehah, 331 and 2972.

    3. It was narrated that ‘Uqbah ibn ‘Aamir said: I heard the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) say: “Whoever wears an amulet, may Allaah not fulfil his need, and whoever wears a sea-shell, may Allaah not give him peace.”

    (Narrated by Ahmad, 16951)

    This hadeeth was classed as da’eef by Shaykh al-Albaani in Da’eef al-Jaami’
    5703.

    4. It was narrated from ‘Uqbah ibn ‘Aamir al-Juhani that a group came to the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) [to swear their allegiance (bay’ah) to him]. He accepted the bay’ah of nine of them but not of one of them. They said, “O Messenger of Allaah, you accepted the bay’ah of nine but not of this one.” He said, “He is wearing an amulet.” The man put his hand (in his shirt) and took it off, then he (the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him)) accepted his bay’ah. He said, ‘Whoever wears an amulet has committed shirk.”

    (Narrated by Ahmad, 16969)

    This hadeeth was classed as saheeh by Shaykh al-Albaani in al-Silsilah al-Saheehah, 492.

    Secondly:

    Amulets (tameemah, pl. tamaa’im) are things made from pearls or bones that are worn on the necks of children or adults, or are hung up in houses or cars, in order to ward off evil – especially the evil eye – or to bring some benefits.

    These are the comments of the scholars on the various kinds of amulets and the rulings on each kind. These comments contain important and useful points.

    1. Shaykh Sulaymaan ibn ‘Abd al-Wahhaab said:

    “Know that the scholars among the Sahaabah and Taabi’een and those who came after them differed as to whether it is permissible to hang up amulets which only contain words from the Qur’aan or names and attributes of Allaah.

    One group said that this is permissible. This was the view of ‘Abd-Allaah ibn ‘Amr ibn al-‘Aas and others. This is the apparent meaning of the report narrated from ‘Aa’ishah and it was the view of Abu Ja’far al-Baaqir and Ahmad, according to one report. They interpreted the hadeeth as referring to amulets which involve shirk; with regard to those which contain words from the Qur’aan or the names and attributes of Allaah, then they are like ruqyah which uses the same words.

    I say, this appears to be the view of Ibn al-Qayyim.

    Another group said that this is not permissible. This was the view of Ibn Mas’ood and Ibn ‘Abbaas, and is the apparent meaning of the view of Hudhayfah, ‘Uqbah ibn ‘Aamir and Ibn ‘Akeem (may Allaah be pleased with him). This was also the view of a group of the Taabi’een, including the companions of Ibn Mas’ood and Ahmad, according to one report which was chosen by most of his companions. It was also the view of the later scholars, who quoted this and similar ahaadeeth as evidence. The apparent meaning is that it is general in application and does not differentiate between amulets which contain Qur’aan and amulets which contain other things, unlike ruqyah where there is a differentiation. This is supported by the fact that the Sahaabah who narrated the hadeeth understood it to be general in meaning, as was quoted above from Ibn Mas’ood.

    Abu Dawood narrated that ‘Eesa ibn Hamzah said: “I entered upon ‘Abd-Allaah ibn ‘Akeem and his face was red due to high fever. I said, ‘Why don’t you hang up an amulet?’ He said, ‘We seek refuge with Allaah from that. The Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “Whoever hangs up anything will be entrusted to its care…”’”

    This scholarly difference was concerning hanging up amulets which contain Qur’aan or names and attributes of Allaah, so what do you think about the things which were innovated later on, doing spells (ruqyah) using the names of shayaateen (devils) and others and hanging them up, and even being attached to those shayaateen, seeking refuge in them, slaughtering animals for them, asking them to ward off harm and bring benefits – actions which are pure shirk? This is prevalent among many of the people, except for those whom Allaah keeps safe and sound. Think about what the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said and what was the practice of the Sahaabah and Taabi’een, and what the scholars after them mentioned on this topic and others. Then look at what happened in the later generations. It will become clear to you what the religion of the Messenger (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) is, and how it has now become alienated in all ways. And Allaah is the One Whose help we seek.

    (Tayseer al-‘Azeez al-Hameed, p. 136-138)

    2. Shaykh Haafiz Hukami said:

    If they – i.e., amulets – contain clearly-written Qur’aanic verses or saheeh ahaadeeth, there was some dispute among the salaf – the Sahaabah, the Taabi’een and those who followed them – as to whether they are permissible.

    Some of them – i.e., some of the Salaf – said that this was permissible. This was narrated from ‘Aaishah (may Allaah be pleased with her), Abu Ja’far Muhammad ibn ‘Ali, and others among the salaf.

    Some of them said that this was not allowed; they regarded it is makrooh and not permitted. They include ‘Abd-Allaah ibn ‘Akeem, ‘Abd-Allaah ibn ‘Amr, ‘Uqbah ibn ‘Aamir, and ‘Abd-Allaah ibn Mas’ood and his companions such as al-Aswad and ‘Alqamah, and those who came after them such as Ibraaheem al-Nakha’i and others – may Allaah have mercy on them.

    Undoubtedly not allowing that is a safer precaution to prevent means that lead to wrong beliefs, especially in our own times. If most of the Sahaabah and Taabi’een regarded it as makrooh in those noble times when the faith in their hearts was greater than a mountain, then regarding it as makrooh in these times of trials and tribulations is more appropriate and is more on the safe side. So how about when this concession has led people to things which are purely haraam and they have made it a means to those things? For example, they make amulets for seeking refuge, on which they write an aayah or soorah or the phrase “Bismillaah ir-Rahmaan ir-Raheem (In the name of Allaah, the most Gracious, the Most Merciful), then underneath it they put some devilish mumbo-jumbo, the meaning of which no one knows except one who has read their books. Or they divert the hearts of the common folk from putting their trust in Allaah and make them dependent on the things that they have written, and most of them frighten the people, before anything even happens to them. One of them will come to the person whom he wants to trick out of his money, knowing that the person is relying on him and trusts him, and he says: “Such and such is going to happen to your family or your wealth or to you,” Or he says, “You have a qareen (constant companion) from among the jinn,” or the like, and he describes things to him and and tells him things about himself that the Shaytaan whispers to him, to make him think that he has true insight and that he cares about him and wants to bring him some benefit. When the heart of the ignorant fool is filled with fear of what has been described to him, he turns away from his Lord and turns to this charlatan with all his heart and soul; he puts his trust in him and relies on him instead of Allaah, and says to him, “What is the way out from the things that you have described? What is the means of warding them off?” It is as if he (the charlatan) has control over benefit and harm, at which point his hopes are raised and he becomes more greedy, wondering how much he will be able to take. So he tells him, “If you give me such and such, I will write an amulet for that which will be this long and this wide” – he describes it and speaks to him in a nice manner. Then he hangs up this amulet to protect him from such and such diseases. Do you think, after all that we have mentioned, that this belief is a form of minor shirk? No way; it means that one is taking as one’s god someone other than Allaah, putting one's trust in someone other than Him, turning to someone other than Him, relying on the deeds of created beings and trying to divert people from their religion. Can the Shaytaan do any of these tricks except with the help of his devilish brethren among mankind?

    “Say: ‘Who can guard and protect you in the night or in the day from the (punishment of the) Most Gracious (Allaah)?’ Nay, but they turn away from the remembrance of their Lord”

    [al-Anbiyaa’ 21:42 – interpretation of the meaning]

    Then along with the devilish mumbo-jumbo, he writes on the amulet something from the Qur’aan, and hangs it up when he is not taahir (in a state of purity), when he is in a state of minor or major impurity, and he never shows any respect towards it or keeps it away from other things. By Allaah, none of the enemies of Allaah have treated His Book with as much contempt as these heretics who claim to be Muslims. By Allaah, the Qur’aan was revealed to be recited and followed, for its commandments to be obeyed and its prohibitions heeded, for its information to be believed and its limits to be adhered to, for its parables and stories to serve as lessons, and for it to be believed in.

    “… the whole of it (clear and unclear Verses) are from our Lord…”

    [Aal ‘Imraan 3:7 – interpretation of the meaning]

    But these people have ignored all of that and cast it behind their backs; they have merely memorized a few words in order to earn their living from them, like any other means of earning a living that enables them to do haraam things, not things which are permitted. If a king or a governor wrote a letter to his subordinate, telling him to so such and such and not to do such and such, commanding the people in your city to do such and such and forbidding them to do such and such, etc., and he took that letter and did not read it or think about its instructions, and he did not convey that to those to whom he was commanded to convey it, but instead he took it and hung it around his neck or his arm, and did not pay any attention at all to what was in it, the king would punish him severely for that. So how about that which was revealed from the Compeller of the heavens and the earth, Who has the highest description in the heavens and on earth, to Whom is all praise in the beginning and at the end, to Whom all things return, so worship Him and put your trust in Him, He is sufficient for me, there is no god but He, in Him I put my trust and He is the Lord of the Mighty Throne. And if they (amulets) contain anything but the two revelations (i.e., Qur’aan and saheeh Sunnah) then this is shirk without a doubt, and is more akin to the azlaam (arrows used during the jaahiliyyah for seeking luck or help in decision making) in being far-removed from the characteristics of Islam.

    If they (amulets) contain anything other than the two revelations and instead contain mumbo-jumbo from the Jews or worshippers of the temple, stars or angels, or those who use the services of the jinn, etc., or they are made of pearls, strings, iron rings, etc., then this is shirk, i.e., hanging them up or wearing them is shirk, beyond a doubt, because they are not among the permissible means or known forms of treating disease. It is simply a belief that they will ward off such and such a problem or pain because of their so-called special features. This is like the belief of idol-worshippers concerning their idols, and they are like the azlaam (arrows) which the people of the jaahiliyyah used to take everywhere with them and consult whenever they had to make a decision. These were three arrows, on the first of which was written ‘Do’, on the second ‘Do not do’ and on the third ‘Try again.’ If the person picked out the one which said ‘Do’, he would go ahead and do that thing; if it said, ‘Do not do’, he would not do it, and if it said, ‘Try again,’ he would consult them again. Instead of this, Allaah – to Whom be praise – has given us something better, which is the prayer of Istikhaarah.

    In conclusion, these amulets which do not contain Qur’aan or Sunnah are just like the azlaam in that they involve corrupt beliefs and go against the sharee’ah and are far-removed from the characteristics of Islam. Those who believe in pure Tawheed keep as far away as possible from such things. The faith in their hearts is too great to permit anything of this sort to enter their hearts. Their status is too high and their certainty of faith is too strong for them to put their trust in anyone other than Allaah or to seek the protection of anyone other than Him. And Allaah is the Source of strength.

    (Ma’aarij al-Qubool, 2/510-512)

    The view that amulets are not allowed even if they contain words from the Qur’aan is the view of our shaykhs:

    3. The scholars of the Standing Committee said:

    The scholars are agreed that it is haraam to wear amulets if they contain anything other than Qur’aan, but they differed concerning those which do contain Qur’aan. Some of them said that wearing these is permitted, and others said that it is not permitted. The view that it is not permitted is more likely to be correct because of the general meaning of the ahaadeeth, and in order to prevent means of shirk.

    Shaykh ‘Abd al-‘Azeez ibn Baaz, Shaykh ‘Abd-Allaah ibn Ghadyaan, Shaykh ‘Abd-Allaah ibn Qa’ood.

    (Fataawa al-Lajnah al-Daa’imah, 1/212)

    4. Shaykh al-Albaani (may Allaah have mercy on him) said:

    This misguidance is still widespread among the Bedouin, fellahin (peasants) and some of the city-dwellers. Examples include the pearls which some drivers put in their cars, hanging them from the rear-view mirror. Some of them hang an old shoe on the front or back of the car; some hang a horse-shoe on the front of their house or shop. All of that is to ward off the evil eye, or so they claim. And there are other things which are widespread because of ignorance of Tawheed and the things which nullify it such as actions of shirk and idolatry which the Messengers were only sent and the Books were only revealed to put an end to. It is to Allaah that we complain of the ignorance of Muslims nowadays, and their being far away from their religion.

    (Silsilat al-Ahaadeeth al-Saheehah, 1/890, 492)

    And Allaah knows best

    please don't be sarcastic.
    i didn't ask to argue - i asked because i want to know.
    it seems a strong statement that it would make a person a kafir to either do or receive sihr. so i was curious. how else to learn?
    i agree that it is wrong, so that isn't the issue. but does it really put a person outside of islam?
    it's just a question - there is no need to take offense.

    sorry forgive me i did not intend for it to sound sarcastic.
    but yes it puts you outside islam, plus trying to repel sihr by the usage of sihr does NOT repel sihr, just like Allah swt allows for it to harm you only He can cure you from it.

    when i was going through that stage in my life i was adviced to do all sorts some things made me laugh and these advices were from older pious ppl but just goes to show how much some muslims uphold supersitition.
    i was told to get red chilli powder put it in a very hot pan and let it burn and inhale the smoke which would make u think would only suffocate you but apparently it kills the jinn who has possessed u.

    one person told me to go to a alim who has contact with the jinns for a jinn to find out how it was done and to repel it...

    there were plenty of other ways suggested but it just makes u think.

    the only way to get ri of it and protect urself is by asking Allah swt cos Only He is the protector of His slaves.

    no problem.
    i didn't know that it put you outside of islam - i guess the reason is that it qualifies as "shirk".
    superstitions are quite amusing but they are also horrible because people prey on the vulnerable, just like you experienced, they take advantage of their pain and charge them money and sell them illusions.
    and i agree - god is the only protector.

    having sihr done on u does not make u a kafir i dont know where u got that from
    re-reading it, i see i misunderstood.
    thanks.

    If anyone is curious or having problems with sihr the best book to invest in is sword against black magic and evil magicians the book clearly explains everything about sihr and its effects and how it takes place and how to cure it, the proper way through Qur'anic ruqya.

    its a great read.

    at that time i bought many books about the matter but only this book was clear and had indepth detail about everything.

    ma salama
