Benefit: The Ruling on Going to Magicians for Cures

Written by Munīb al-Ṣumālī on . Posted in Brief Benefits

In the Name of Allāh, the Ever Merciful, the Bestower of Mercy

Question: I am afflicted with magic and went to a magician to cure me from the magic afflicting me, what is the ruling upon me?

Answer: It is not permissible to go to a magician, magic is not cured with magic, rather magic is cured by ruqyah al-sharʿiyyah, the noble Qurʾān, some permissible medicines and supplications [to Allāh]. So do not go to the magicians to cure you from magic but rather utilise the permissible medicines, supplications [to Allāh], reciting the Qurʾān, and Ruqyah until Allāh cures you.

Question: How about my going to the magician in the first place, what is the ruling upon that?

Answer: Upon you is to repent to Allāh, and do not repeat this act again.
