Muslim has narrated, on the authority of one of the wives of the Prophet (Hafsah - may Allah be pleased with her), that Allah's Prophet said:

"Whoever went to a fortune-teller and asked him about some matter (i.e. of the unseen) and believed him, will have his prayer rejected for forty days."

It is reported on the authority of Abu Hurairah (ra) that the Prophet said:

"Whoever went to a fortune-teller and believed in what he said, has disbelieved in what was revealed to Muhammad."

^Hope that helps! :)

I asume u came to the Light of Guidance seminar? & Sh. Yasir did also warn us not to read it

Apologies for the late reply.

Firstly ukhti it is a bit concerning to me that all the disclaimers given were not heard, perhaps you walked into class late?

Secondly, ignorance is an excuse and if someone did not know an act to be haram, generally speaking that is a valid excuse and no sin has been committed.

But now that you do know, make sure to avoid it!

Wa salaam

Yasir
