SUPERSTITION 

First of all Islam is not illogical system, therefore there is no room for any superstition, but since other manmade religion contain superstition and it sometime filter through ancestors, for that reason we find label Muslim also sometime believe things like  

 

Bad luck when black cat walking across someone path

Walking under a ladder is bad luck
Using or seeing a cracked mirror is bad luck

Hearing certain things as a bad omen

Hearing sound of an owl or crow.

Some numbers as unlucky, such as 13

Certain month, day or time are  unlucky

Place where a crime has occurred is unlucky

Certain types of people sight is bad omen

 

Basically the list could goes on and on, simple people just like to play with other people’s faith and like to make them frightened. Al-Quran indicates such corrupted belief was there and since it mention in the Quran therefore it remain all time, And since some believe on them superstition and black magic is true for that reason the enemy of Prophets / Messengers mention of such evil omen on their time see verses below

 

VERSES MENTION OMENS

 

The Quran 7:131

But whenever good came to them, they said: "Ours is this." And if evil afflicted them, they ascribed it to evil omens connected with Musa (Moses) and those with him. Be informed! Verily, their evil omens are with Allah but most of them know not.

 

The Quran 36:18

The (people) said: "for us, we augur an evil omen from you: if ye desist not, we will certainly stone you. And a grievous punishment indeed will be inflicted on you by us." 

The Quran 36:19

They (Messengers) said: "Your evil omens be with you! (Do you call it "evil omen") because you are admonished? Nay, but you are a people Musrifun (transgressing disobeying Allah)

 

The Quran 27:47

They said, "We consider you a bad omen, you and those with you." He said, "Your omen is with Allah. Rather, you are a people being tested."

 

MAGIC 

 

There are two area of human experiences , one is based on explainable cause-effect relationship of events and the other purports to phenomena that escape the notice of the human eye as well as defy human intelligence.  Another word one is explainable or describable while the other one is not. Some belief in Islam fall on that category, and some false notion such magic has filter on that category too. And for that reason sometime people wonder about magic - 

 

Is it real or does it have any reality?

 

If magic is real then all magicians should be rich with unlimited moneys & wealth since they could turn any paper into currency, yet we find them obtaining small wages for their magical show or entertainments.  And those corrupters who exercise so-called black magic are nothing but cheaters who pinching money from ordinary uneducated people, especially in third world countries. Anyway ponder on them verses below

 

The Quran 2:102

And they followed [instead] what the devils had recited during the reign of Solomon. It was not Solomon who disbelieved, but the devils disbelieved, teaching people magic and that which was revealed to the two angels at Babylon, Harut and Marut. But the two angels do not teach anyone unless they say, "We are a trial, so do not disbelieve [by practicing magic]." And [yet] they learn from them that by which they cause separation between a man and his wife. But they do not harm anyone through it except by permission of Allah. And the people learn what harms them and does not benefit them. But the Children of Israel certainly knew that whoever purchased the magic would not have in the Hereafter any share. And wretched is that for which they sold themselves, if they only knew.

 

The Quran 20:66

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

The Quran 20:69

"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." 

The Quran 20:70

So the magicians fell down prostrate. They said: "We believe in the Lord of Harun (Aaron) and Musa (Moses)." 

 

In the above story of Harut & Marut we see Allah send angel to teach some people Magic so there must be reason to it, yet the criminal misuses it. But the verse also says they cannot harm anyone save Allah’s permission, meaning it is fake until Allah give permission.

 

If Allah want to harm anyone nothing can stop HIM then why should HE need to use any of them so-called magic ?

 

Simply answer to above question is that Allah do not need to depend on any magic to punish anyone. Therefore the above story tell was there was people who try to practice such nonsense. 

 

And since these are nonsense going on from the ancient therefore mankind heard so many fairytale related to it, and it become some of their belief, since them culprits are benefited from such belief, therefore we find culprits from every religions is practicing such nonsense to gain wreath and power, so it became well known concept.

 

Yet what people don’t understand is that, once someone start believing something or anything even thaw its not real, but it make effect on their life and on their hearts & minds. For example, if someone told that their partner [wife / husband]  is having affairs and if they  believing such lies then any small suspected act of their partner will make their belief more stronger and stronger even thaw their partner might be  innocent, and then such suspicion will eventually caused distraction to their  family.

 

And since the verse clearly say  “wama hum bidarreena bihi min ahadin illa bi-ithni Allahi = and  they cannot harm anyone with it except by Allah's permission”. Therefore any sincere believers will not bother or scared of any of them corrupters or their nonsense corruption such black magic or evil spell.

 

Since it fake therefore in general such knowledge is useless, it’s only going to harm the person who is possessing it, for example we sometime see such person is get arrested or beaten up by public, because of their nonsense acts, anyway  they cannot harm other unless Allah want to punish such person through them corrupters.

 

Also don’t forget this verse is talking about time of the prophet Sulaiman [s] and Allah did given him some extraordinary supernatural power, therefore on his time enemies may had some power given by Allah in order to test believers of that time. Yet one prophet Mohammed [s] time he did not got any of such supernatural power as we find with prophet isa [s] or Prophet Musa[s] or Prophet Sulaiman[s] as mention above, anyway see the verse below

 

The Quran 7:188

Say: "I do not posses for myself any benefit or harm, except what God wills. And if I could know the future, then I would have increased my good fortune, and no harm would have come to me. I am but a warner and a bearer of good news to a people who believe."

 

Now if we ponder on all the below verse, we would easily conclude  that magic by default it fake, otherwise why do those disbeliever class  Ayat of Allah as  magic, simply because they just want to say it falsehood. 

 

MAGIC  UNDERSTOOD AS FAKE   


The Quran 30:58

And indeed We have set forth for mankind, in this Qur'an every kind of parable. But if you  bring to them any sign or proof, the disbelievers are sure to say "You follow nothing but falsehood, and magic."

 

The Quran 37:15

And they say: "This is nothing but evident magic

 

The Quran 43:30

And when the truth (this Qur'an) came to them, they (the disbelievers in this Qur'an) said: "This is magic, and we disbelieve therein."

 

The Quran 46:7

And when Our Clear Verses are recited to them, the disbelievers say of the truth (this Qur'an) when it reaches them: "This is plain magic!"

 

The Quran 52:15

Is this magic, or do you not see?

 

 

Not just them verses but there is so many other verses indicate those disbelievers are taken al-Quran as fake, and for that reason they call it clear magic.

 

 

VERSE INDICATE  JINN CAN DO SUPERNATURAL THINGS   

 

The Quran 27:39

A 'Ifrit (strong one) from the jinn said: "I will bring it to you before you rise from your place (council). And verily, I am indeed strong, and trustworthy for such work."

The above verse prove Jinn can do supernatural things, yet I did not find any verses which indicate human can do it too. Don’t forget some prophets and messengers ware given some power to do some miracle and they ware not fake like we see on the story of prophet Musa [s]. Also any miracles caused directly by Allah could be as good and benefit for mankind or as punishments. Here are some area of supernatural things which beyond our understanding yet it is part of Al-Islam, and we need to believe it, as blind faith such as-

 

Angel

Jinn

Soul

Hereafter

Prophets / Messengers

Process of messenger receiving Wahey / Revelation  

 

In Islam there are some other things such as, Hell, Heaven, Judgement day, or some prophets are given some special & specific power or knowledge, which the believers need believe on it too.

 

TAWEEZ

 

Tawezat is another easy way to make money, which is very poplar on third world countries. And we find so many commercial deceivers trying to sell taweez, here is an example below how they advertise.  

 

 - - - - - --  -- - - - --

 

In some of special times we create some special tawezats which can be used for special purposes which are related to your personal life and your family for examples.

 

1. To make strong relation between husband and wife so that they trust each other and live happily together.

2. To remove hidden stop over in your marriages.

3. To remove delays in family girls (daughter, sister etc…).

4. To build connection again between lovers who are not talking or contacting for some reasons.

5. To make your family in your favour so that they get agreed for your love marriage.

6. To attract husband so that he listen you.

7. To attract son, sister, daughter so he/she listen you and do what you want.

8. To remove the hidden issues in your business and success.

9. To protect from magic’s.

10. To attract everyone who meet you.

 

  -  - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

 

Look at them jokers, how nonsense lies they are spreading specially on their number 10 list, it say to attract everyone, now tell me what will happen to that person if everyone get attracted to that one person?

 

If them culprit can solve all every problem then why do really need anything or anyone?

 

The World Bank should take them taweez to survive from any economic downturn?

 

 

Anyway as I said before them culprit can only be success when they find another dumb who believe their nonsense and fall in their traps, but they will not be able to con or even convince any sincere believers who depend on Allah alone.

 

 

MYTH OF BLACK MAGIC OR WITCHCRAFT

 

This myth mainly existed from long time and always some people are believing on it and as I said before some cheating are taking advantage because of this co-called black magic myth. Here is one of the brother exposing them culprit see the below links  

 

http://www.blogymate.com/post.aspx?blogid=68148&t=The-Truth-About-BLACK-MAGIC---ITS-A-TOTAL-FAKE%21---I-CHALLENGE--ALL-GLOBAL-BLACK-MAGICIANS-CAST-A-SPE 

 

 

BEWARE OF OTHER CHEATERS

 

We always receive text message or leaflet, form unknown- which contain a message about future and some sort of fancy saying / story. And it request us to forward to many others as possible. Please note all of these messenger just want us to continue forwarding it to several other persons. And it frighten us with bad news if we DON’T forward it, Also it give us good news if do as told.

 

EXAMPLE OF CONTENT IN THE  SMS / LEAFLET

 

1. This is true: Prophet (P.H.U.H ) came to someone dream and said “ READ QURAN & READ NAMAZ ,” - And said that whoever sends my message to 7 place , they will get good news within 10 days.- And the person who ignores this will get bad luck for the whole year - …So please forward this to 7 people.

 

2. One of the top scholar of Modina seen a dream that all Muslim is going to Hell. Except very little.. If you forward this massage you will be receiving good news soon- But if you don’t then something bad will happen to you very soon - So please forward to moor people as possible or at- least to 11person

 

WHY DO THEY DO THIS ?

 

It is very simple them cheater knows generally people are weak on religious knowledge and people always want to be safe and always want to have something good . So they take advantage of this and make money out of it- imagine nearly 2.5 billon Muslim if 10% fall into their trap- that is huge amount of SMS - The Mobil-phone company charge minimum 10p per SMS.Unfortunately they don’t just take your money but they also hijack your IMAN and create SHiRIK and uncertainty within your IMAN

 

WHY WE SHOULD NOT OBEY THEM 

 

We as believer we must believe on Allah , that HE is the only ONE who knows the future and HE is the only ONE who can help or punish us in any shape of form.

 

The Quran : 17:56

Say: "Call on those - besides Him - whom ye fancy: they have neither the power to remove your troubles from you nor to change them."

 

The Quran 57:22

No misFortune can happen on earth or in your souls but is recorded in a decree before We bring it into existence: That is truly easy for Allah.

 

 

The Quran 11:123

To Allah do belong the unseen (secrets) of the heavens and the earth, and to Him goeth back every affair (for decision): then worship Him, and put thy trust in Him: and thy Lord is not unmindful of aught that ye do.

 

The Quran 34:14

Then, when We decreed (Solomon's) death, nothing showed them his death except a little worm of the earth, which kept (slowly) gnawing away at his staff: so when he fell down, the Jinns saw plainly that if they had known the unseen, they would not have tarried in the humiliating Penalty (of their Task).

 

The Quran 2:9

Fain would they deceive Allah and those who believe, but they only deceive themselves, and realise (it) not!

 

The Quran 42:30

Whatever misFortune happens to you, is because on the things your hands have wrought, and for many (of them) He grants forgiveness.

 

The Quran 2:107

Knowest thou not that to Allah belongeth the dominion of the heavens and the earth? And besides Him ye have neither patron nor helper.

 

The Quran 4:45

But Allah hath full knowledge of your enemies: Allah is enough for a protector, and Allah is enough for a helper.

 

Islam is not a religion of superstitions. Superstitions are as old as darkness itself. Fear of the unknown and inability to control or predict our own future have led people to all kinds of irrational acts and beliefs.

 

Sometime we see a person with christen background belief also have some similar myths they say- "Keep your fingers crossed." Keeping fingers crossed is expected to ward off evil. Knocking on wood is meant to bring good luck by enlisting the support of spirits who according to the ancient pagans Druids, lived in trees. Some Air Force crews who insist on touching or knocking trees before taking off.

 

However Such fancy rationalization cannot hide the fact that belief in the irrational is a direct result of lack of belief in the All Knowledgeable, All-Powerful ALLAH who controls everything. He created this vast universe and it is running according to His plan. Not a leaf falls from a tree or a droplet of water falls from the sky except through His will.

 

The biggest cheating method apply by mullah’s mostly on third-world country where they easily target simple uneducated people to gain wealth by such act -( Thabiz- Khatum- homemade medicine & so on..) yet them Mullah forget the verse below

 

The Quran 2:188

And eat up not one another's property unjustly (in any illegal way e.g. stealing, robbing, deceiving, etc.), nor give bribery to the rulers (judges before presenting your cases) that you may knowingly eat up a part of the property of others sinfully.

 

 

BELIEVING ANY OF THEM CORRUPTERS ARE FORM OF SHIRIK

 

If  I  think or believe  they have power to do harm or goods then indirectly I am  denying them verses which say Allah is all powerful therefore such act will fall in the category of Shirik. And may be for that reason Allah mention most people will not believe without committing some sort of Shirik, see the verse below

 

The Quran 12:106

And most of them will not believe in God except while setting-up partners.

 

We find all manmade religion such as Hinduism Judaism  , Christianity , Buddhism projects so many things that’s directly or indirectly lead to shirik. For example Hindu worship whatever they scared of such as snake.  

 

CONCLUSION

 

To me I solely trust on Allah alone, therefore I don’t gave a damn about all of this nonsense and mumble jumble [black magic], it is simply nothing but fake and it cannot do anything good nor it can harm.

 

My sincerely request is that, stay away from them corrupters. Not because it could harm, but because it could confuse if one don’t have strong belief on Allah alone. Or else one might fall in the trap of Satan, see the verse below

 

The Quran 114: 4/5/6

"From the evil of the sneaking whisperer,"

Who whispers into the chests of mankind,"

"From among the Jinn and mankind."

 

Them verse indicate for us to seek protection from Allah, since it could confuse us and put as on suspicion. And the only way to built strong faith on Allah by sincerely trusting His message [Al-Quran] and avoid all form of Shirik as mention on the below verse

 

The Quran 6:106

Follow what thou art taught by inspiration from thy Lord: there is no god but He: and turn aside from those who join gods with Allah. 

 

On this verse and all other similar verse we see Allah mention first “NO GOD” therefore it also has reason to it. And for me the reason is I must try to get rid of ALL fake gods first, in order to have faith on real God [Allah ]

 

For example if there is very districted rundown  structural damage building, then it will be hard to put it back in order, while it will be wiser and better just to demolish and rebuilt new building. 

It work exactly same with our hearts & mind, if we try to have trust and sincere belief on Allah alone, then we must first empty it from all other fake gods.   

 

Lastly I leave them mention deceivers and all fake gods to enjoy while they can,, but soon or later they will get what they deserved, either on this life or hereafter [Allah knows best]
