Anybody know that in the past chemistry was haram?. It's because chemistry was looled like sihr
(magic), in example, two uncolored fluids when mixed will turn into a colored fluid (remember chemistry lesson in school?). But later after ulama knew that chemistry has nothing to do with jinn or sihr
, chemistry is not haram again.
In Indonesia we differentiate "magic" into two kinds (and names)
- Sihir: This is "magic" that use aid from jinn. It's claerly haram.
- Sulap: This is "magic" that has nothing to do with jinn, but just a "game", like trick or illusion. This is not haram.
Bro, sis, before you say trick or illusion is haram, it's better if you try to know how the magicians can do that. There are many books that explain about it.
