“ They followed what the evil 1s gave out ( falsely ) against the power of Solomon: the blasphemers Were, non Solomon, but the evil 1s, learning work forces Magic, and such things as came down at Babylon to the angels Harut and Marut. But neither of these taught anyone ( Such things ) without stating: “ We are merely for test ; so do non curse. ” They learned from them the agencies to seed strife between adult male and married woman. But they could non therefore harm anyone except by Allah ‘s permission. And they learned what harmed them, non what profited them. And they knew that the purchasers of ( thaumaturgy ) would hold no portion in the felicity of the Hereafter. And vile was the monetary value for which they did sell their psyches, if they but knew! ” [ Al Baqarah: 102 ]
Unfortunately, there are some people who believe that Satans do cognize the hereafter and the unobserved. They besides believe that Satans can convey the information from the upper Eden. For such a belief, some have accepted Satans to be their personal ushers. In so making, they misuse their relationship every bit good as the information that was released to them. Most of the clip the intelligence that satans bring are incorrect, twisted or out of context. The weak and the ill-hearted persons have been captured psychologically by Satans.
Prophet Solomon ( peace be upon him ) was accused of being unbeliever ( kaffir ) because he communicated with Satan. Allah purified him, and blamed Satans for their arch workss. It was the Satans who became disbelievers, and it was Satans who teach people how to convey dissention between a hubby and a married woman. Satans do cognize that the household is a solid foundation for a stable society. Any perturbations and any jobs established in a household would be in the right way to bust up that household and eventually to bust up the society.
After disclosure of the Qur’an, Muslims are prohibited to larn or to utilize thaumaturgy. It is wholly improper ( Haram ) to acquire involved in any capacity and in any signifier of thaumaturgy. Moslems are to be guided by the Qur’an, and non by Jinns whether they are the good or the evil 1s. Jinns do n’t cognize the hereafter at all. Anytime they try to steal information from outside the Earth ‘s orbit, they are hit with meteorites and are killed. The Chapter Al-Mulk clearly describe this state of affairs,
“ And we have, ( from of old ) , adorned the lowest Eden with Lamps, and We have made such ( Lamps ) ( as ) missiles to drive away the Evil Ones, and have prepared for them the Punishment of the Blazing Fire. ” [ Al Mulk: 5 ]
During the yearss of Prophet Moses ( peace be upon him ) and Pharaoh, the pattern of thaumaturgy was traveling on like a concern trade all over the state. Such type of a pattern was done from the top functionaries of the authorities to the multitudes similar to the pattern of medical specialty or concern or any other profession. The narrative of the challenge that took topographic point between Moses one side and Pharaoh and his prestidigitators on the other side is mentioned in many topographic points in the Qur’an. The followers are some poetries refering genie and thaumaturgy.
“ We know best why it is they listen, when they listen to thee ; and when they meet in private conference, behold, the wicked say, “ Ye follow none other than a adult male bewitched! ” [ AL Isra: 47 ]
“ But ( now ) , when the Truth has come to them from Ourselves, they say, “ Why are non ( Signs ) sent to him, like those which were sent to Moses? ” Do they non so reject ( the Signs ) which were once sent to Moses? They say: “ Two sorts of black magic, each helping the other! ” And they say: “ For us, we reject all ( such things ) ! ” [ Al Qashash: 48 ]
“ And they ( Arab heathens ) wonder that a Warner ( Prophet Muhammad R ) has come to them from among themselves! And the nonbelievers say: “ This ( Prophet Muhammad R ) is a magician, a prevaricator. ” [ Shaad: 4 ]
“ To Firaun ( Pharaoh ) , Haman and Qaroon ( Korah ) , but they called ( him ) : “ A magician, a prevaricator! ” [ AL Mu’min ” 24 ]
“ And they said ( to Moosa ( Moses ) ) : “ O you sorcerer! Invoke your Lord for us harmonizing to what He has covenanted with you. Verily, We shall steer ourselves ( aright ) . ” [ Az Zukhruf: 49 ]
Ibn Katheer said: In our position, witchery is existent, and Allah may make whatever consequence He wills when that is done. In contrast, Mu’tazilah and Abu Ishaaq Al Isfaraayeeni among Shaafa’i claim that witchery is merely an semblance and hocus-pocus.
Ibn Qudaamah said: Witchcraft is something existent, some of it may kill and some may do illness, and some may divide a adult male from his married woman and prevent him from holding intercourse with her. ( Al Mughni, 10/106 )
Kinds of witchery
The bookmans ( may Allah hold mercy on them ) have listed several sorts of witchery. Abu Abdullaah Al Fakr Al Raazi listed eight types of witchery. Ibn Khuldoon listed several types in Al-Muqaddimah, and Al Raaghib listed four types which Ibn Hajar quoted in Al Fath, but when looking at this affair decently, it can be said that there is merely one type of witchery, which is the existent sort, in which the enchantress relies on the genie and Satans.
Witchcraft of stars and planets
Those who pattern this sort of witchery worship the seven familiar heavenly organic structures, viz. the Sun, the Moon, Saturn, Jupiter, Marss, Venus and quicksilver. They wear particular apparels for each one, fast on certain yearss, shave their caputs and burn incense, so they look at the Moon and reference it, in order to cite the spirit of those celestial bodies- as they claim. In ancient times, if a kid was born to one of these astrologists, they would look at the astrological mark of the kid and name him consequently, claiming that this was declarative of his hereafter. In our ain times we can see the Hagiographas of astrologists in many newspapers, in which they tell people what determinations to do in their day-to-day lives, under the headers of ‘Your stars ‘ or ‘Horoscopes. ‘ They say that a kid born between certain day of the months is a Cancer, and between other day of the months is a Libra or a Scorpio ; if the Moon is go uping in Cancer they tell them they can make up one’s mind to go, acquire married or do concern trades, and so away. This is all guess and star divination.
Astrology is a portion of witchery and divination, because celestial organic structures, which are created affair, have no consequence on other created things ; they can non convey felicity or wretchedness, or convey about life or decease. The stars, planets, Sun and Moon are marks of Allah which attest to His Greatness and laud Him and prostate to Him, and are capable to His bid, as Allah says,
“ Seest 1000 non that to Allah bow down in worship all things that are in the celestial spheres and on Earth, – the Sun, the Moon, the stars ; the hills, the trees, the animate beings ; and a great figure among world? But a great figure are ( besides ) such as are fit for Punishment: and such as Allah shall dishonor, – None can raise to honour: for Allah carries out all that He wills. ” [ Al Hajj ” 18 ]
“ And He has made the Sun and the Moon, both invariably prosecuting their classs, to be of service to you ; and He has made the dark and the twenty-four hours, to be of service to you. ” [ Ibraheem: 33 ]
“ Indeed your Lord is Allah, Who created the celestial spheres and the Earth in Six Days, and so He Istawa ( rose over ) the Throne ( truly in a mode that suits His Majesty ) . He brings the dark as a screen over the twenty-four hours, seeking it quickly, and ( He created ) the Sun, the Moon, the stars subjected to His Command. Surely, His is the Creation and Commandment. Blessed be Allah, the Lord of the Alameen ( world, jinns and all that exists ) ! ” [ Al A’raf: 54 ]
“ And has subjected to you all that is in the celestial spheres and all that is in the Earth ; it is wholly as a favour and kindness from Him. Verily, in it are marks for a people who think profoundly. ” [ Al Jatsiyah: 13 ]
Allah tells us in His Book that the stars are an adornment for the lowest Eden, that they help in pilotage on land and sea when it is dark, and that there is another sort of stars with which the Satans are pelted when they try to listen in on intelligence from Eden. These are different from the fixed stars, even though they portion the name of stars ( Nujoom ) , merely as the word Daabbah includes both worlds and animate beings.
It is proven in Al Saheehayn that Zayd ibn Khaalid said, “ The Messenger of Allah ( pbuh ) addressed us in Al Hudaybiyah, after it had rained at dark, and said, “ ‘Do you know what your Lord said this dark? ”
We said, “ Allah and His Messenger cognize best. And the Prophet ( pbuh ) said, “ This forenoon some of Ibadi ( My slaves ) remained as true trusters and some became nonbelievers ; whoever said that the rain was due to the Blessings and the Mercy of Allah is the 1 who believes in Me and he disbeliefs in the star, and whoever said that it rained because of peculiar star is a nonbeliever in Me and truster in the star. ” [ Al Bukhari 1038 ]
In sahih Muslim, Abu Hurayrah narrated that the Prophet ( pbuh ) said:
“ Allah does non direct any blessing down from heaven but some people become Kaafirs because of it. Allah sends down rain and they said it is because of such and such a star. ”
The point is that planets and stars do non hold any consequence on events, or on people ‘s wretchedness or felicity. Concentrating on this ‘knowledge ‘ is sort of guess and speculation. Syaikh Al Islam Ibn Taymiyah said, “ I even addressed them ( astrologists ) in Damascus, where their leaders came to me and I pointed ut what was incorrect with their actions on the footing of rational grounds which they acknowledged was right. Their leader said, “ By Allah, we tell one hundred prevarications and one may turn out to be true. That is because their cognition is based on the false thought that events are caused by the motions of celestial organic structures. This is cognition of the cause but there should besides be cognition of the affected thing, and that can merely be achieved if all facets of the cause are understood, where the result is ever certain. Most of what these people know is a few causes out of many, and they do non cognize the remainder of the causes or the conditions and hindrances. This is like one who knows that in the summer the Sun is straight overhead and therefore its heat intensifies. What may be known from this cognition is that in this instance, grapes turn into raisins. Even though this frequently happens, merely concentrating upon this one cause, the Sun, is declarative of great ignorance, because there may or may non be any grapes. The vine may or may non be fruit, they may be eaten as grapes or they may be squeezed for juice, they may be stolen, or they may so be made into raisins, and so on. ” [ Majmoo ‘ Al Fataawa, 35/ 172- 173 ]
On the other Hadith, when Imam Ali bin Abi Thalib ( r.a ) wanted to travel out to contend the Khawaarij, an astrologist came to him, and said, “ O Ameer Al Mu’mineen, do non go, for the Moon is in Scorpio, and if you travel when the Moon is in Scorpio your comrades will be defeated- or words to that consequence. Ali r.a replied, “ I will go, seting my trust in Allah, trusting on Him and rejecting what you say. ”
He traveled and that journey was blessed ; he killed most of the Khawaarij. If individual believes that some star can do good fortune or bad fortune, this is a corrupt belief, and if he believes that the star is what is controllong his ffaiars alternatively of Allah, so he is a Kaafir.
Believe in the unobserved existences is portion of Muslim ‘s religion. And Islam through the Qur’an and Sunnah emphasized this affair, nevertheless the Jinn wo n’t be able to make anything without Allah ‘s permission and the Muslims should wholly trust on Allah.
