The Prohibition of Curing Magic by using Magic – Shaikh Fawzaan (2)

September 15, 2013

 

 

The following translated from:

http://www.alfawzan.af.org.sa/node/4796

 

 

 

Question: Is it permissible to pray behind a magician or the one who believes in magic? And is it permissible to cure magic by using magic when there is no other way?

 

 

Answer (by Shaikh Fawzaan): Magic is from the greatest of the major sins as the Prophet – sallallahu alayhe wa sallam – said: “Avoid the seven great destructive sins” They (the Companions) said: “What are they, O Messenger of Allaah?” He replied: “(1) Worshiping others with Allaah, (2) magic, and (3) murder…1 to the end of the hadeeth. So magic is considered to be from the great destructive sins and it comes after worshiping others with Allaah – Lofty and Exalted is He. Magic is disbelief. Allaah – He is The Most High and Free from all deficiencies and defects – mentioned about the Jews that they traded the Book of Allaah for magic. He, The Most High, said (translated):

…a party of those who were given the Scripture threw away the Book of Allâh behind their backs as if they did not know! They followed what the Shayâtin (devils) gave out (falsely of the magic) in the lifetime of Sulaimân (Solomon). Sulaimân did not disbelieve, but the Shayâtin (devils) disbelieved, teaching men magic…”2

 

 

And it is disbelief. Allaah – He is The Most High and Free from all deficiencies and defects – said (translated):

And these two did not teach anyone until they had said, ‘We are only a trial, so do not disbelieve’” (2:102)

This shows that learning magic is disbelief. And at the end of this verse (2:102) He said (translated):

And indeed they knew that the buyers of it (magic) would have no share in the Hereafter”3

 

Meaning: they will have no portion (in the Hereafter). This shows that the magician, when he doesn’t repent to Allaah – that he will have no portion in the Hereafter and that he is a disbeliever, because magic is disbelief. Due to this, salaah behind a magician is not correct. Likewise (behind) the one who believes in magic – believing it to be something correct and that it is permissible to practice it – then this one is like the magician and takes the same ruling.

 

 

As for the issue of curing magic by using magic, then many of the Scholars have stated that this is not permissible. Because treatment can only be by using what is halaal and what is allowed. Allaah did not put a cure for the Muslims in what He made forbidden to them. The Prophet – sallallahu alayhe wa sallam – said:

Treat each other but don’t treat each other with the haraam.”4

And Ibn Mas’ood narrated that he (sallallahu alayhe wa sallam) said:

Indeed Allaah did not put a cure for you in what He has forbidden you from.”5

And from the greatest of the forbidden things is magic, so it is not permissible to use it as a treatment, nor to (try to) cure magic by using it. Magic is only cured with permissible medicines, with (recitation of) verses of the Quran, and with transmitted (authentic) dua’s. This is what it is permissible to cure magic with. As for curing it by using magic, then this is the nushrah about which the Prophet – sallallahu alayhe wa sallam – said:

It is from the work of shaytaan.”6

And al-Hasan (al-Basree) said: “None cures magic by using magic7 except the magician”8

And many of the Scholars have prohibited this (curing magic by using magic).

وسئل الشيخ محمد بن صالح العثيمين رحمه الله عن حكم النشرة .
فأجاب : “حل السحر عن المسحور ( النشرة ) الأصح فيها أنها تنقسم إلى قسمين :
القسم الأول : أن تكون بالقرآن الكريم والأدعية الشرعية والأدوية المباحة ، فهذه لا بأس بها لما فيها من المصلحة وعدم المفسدة ، بل ربما تكون مطلوبة لأنها مصلحة بلا مضرة .
القسم الثاني : إذا كانت النشرة بشيء محرم كنقض السحر بسحر مثله ؛ فهذا موضع خلاف بين أهل العلم : فمن العلماء من أجازه للضرورة .
ومنهم من منعه لأن النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم سئل عن النشرة فقال : ( هي من عمل الشيطان ) رواه أبو داود وإسناده جيد . وعلى هذا يكون حل السحر بالسحر محرما ، وعلى المرء أن يلجأ إلى الله سبحانه وتعالى بالدعاء والتضرع لإزالة ضرره والله سبحانه وتعالى يقول : ( وَإِذَا سَأَلَكَ عِبَادِي عَنِّى فإني قَرِيبٌ أُجِيبُ دَعْوَةَ الدَّاعي إِذَا دَعَانِ ) ويقول الله تعالى : ( أَمَّنْ يُجِيبُ الْمُضطَرَّ إِذَا دَعَاهُ وَيَكْشِفُ السُّوءَ وَيَجْعَلُكُمْ خُلَفَاءَ الأَرْضِ أإلَهٌ مَعَ اللَّهِ قَلِيلا مَا تَذَكَّرُونَ ) والله الموفق ” “فتاوى الشيخ ابن عثيمين ” (1/238،239

Shaikh Uthaymeen – rahimahullah – was asked about the ruling on “an-nushrah” and he replied:

What is most correct regarding removing magic from the bewitched one (an-nushrah)1 is that it is divided into two types:

The first type: is that it is done using the Noble Quran, the legislated dua’s (found in the Quran and Sunnah), and permissible medicines. There is no problem with these when there is benefit in them and the absence of evil. Rather, it may be desired because it is benefit without harm.

The second type: is when an-nushrah is done with something forbidden like removing magic with magic – then this is an area of differing among the People of Knowledge – some of them have said it is permissible in cases of necessity.

And others have prohibited it because the Prophet – sallallahu alayhe wa sallam – when he was asked about an-nushrah, he said: “It is from the work of shaytaan”. Abu Dawood2 recorded it and it has a good chain. Because of this, removing magic by using magic is forbidden. What is obligatory upon a person is that he turns to Allaah – Who is The Most High and Free from all deficiencies and defects – with dua and humility so that He will remove the harm from him.

And Allaah – Who is The Most High and Free from all deficiencies and defects – said (translated):

 

When My slaves ask you (O Muhammad) concerning Me, then (answer them), I am indeed near (to them by My Knowledge). I respond to the invocations of the supplicant when he calls on Me (without any mediator or intercessor). So let them obey Me and believe in Me, so that they may be led aright.3 (2:186)

 

And He, The Most High, said (translated):

 

Is not He (better than your gods) Who responds to the distressed one, when he calls Him, and Who removes the evil, and makes you inheritors of the earth, generations after generations. Is there any ilâh (god) with Allâh? Little is that you remember!4 (27:62)

 

And Allaah is the One Who grants success.

The Prohibition of Curing Magic by using Magic – Shaikh Bin Baz

September 10, 2013

 

The following translated from:

http://www.ajurry.com/vb/showthread.php?t=25441

 

 


وسئل الشيخ عبد العزيز بن عبد الله بن باز رحمه الله عن حكم علاج السحر بالسحر عند الضرورة ؟
فأجاب : “لا يجوز علاج السحر بالسحر ، لأن النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم سئل عن النشرة فقال : ( هي من عمل الشيطان ) . والنشرة هي حل السحر بالسحر ؛ ولأن حلها بالسحر يتضمن دعوة الجن والاستعانة بهم ، وهذا من الشرك الأكبر ؛ ولهذا أخبر الله سبحانه عن الملكين أنهما يقولان لمن يريد التعلم منهما ما نصه : ( وَمَا يُعَلِّمَانِ مِنْ أَحَدٍ حَتَّى يَقُولا إِنَّمَا نَحْنُ فِتْنَةٌ فَلا تَكْفُرْ ) البقرة/102 ، وقبلها قوله تعالى : ( وَاتَّبَعُوا مَا تَتْلُوا الشَّيَاطِينُ عَلَى مُلْكِ سُلَيْمَانَ وَمَا كَفَرَ سُلَيْمَانُ وَلَكِنَّ الشَّيَاطِينَ كَفَرُوا يُعَلِّمُونَ النَّاسَ السِّحْرَ وَمـَا أُنـزِلَ عَلَى الْمَلَكَيْنِ بِبَابِـلَ هَـارُوتَ وَمَـارُوتَ ) البقرة/102.

ثم قال سبحانه : ( وَمَا يُعَلِّمَانِ مِنْ أَحَدٍ حَتَّى يَقُولا إِنَّمَا نَحْنُ فِتْنَةٌ فَلا تَكْفُرْ فَيَتَعَلَّمُونَ مِنْهُمَا مَا يُفَرِّقُونَ بِهِ بَيْنَ الْمَرْءِ وَزَوْجِهِ وَمَا هُمْ بِضَارِّينَ بِهِ مِنْ أَحَدٍ إِلا بِإِذْنِ اللَّهِ وَيَتَعَلَّمُونَ مَا يَضُرُّهُمْ وَلا يَنفَعُهُمْ وَلَقَدْ عَلِمُوا لَمَنْ اشْتَرَاهُ مَا لَهُ فِي الأخِرَةِ مِنْ خَلاقٍ وَلَبِئْسَ مَا شَرَوْا بِـهِ أَنفُسَهُـمْ لـَوْ كَانُـوا يَعْلَمُـونَ *وَلَـوْ أَنَّهُـمْ آمَنُـوا وَاتَّقَـوْا لَمَثُوبَـةٌ مِـنْ عِنْـدِ اللَّهِ خَيْـرٌ لَـوْ كَانُـوا يَعْلَمُونَ ) البقرة/102،103.

وفي هاتين الآيتين تحذير من تعلم السحر وتعليمه من وجوه كثيرة ، منها : أنه من عمل الشيطان ، ومنها : أنّ تعلمه كفر ينافي الإيمان ، ومنها : أنه قد يحصل به التفريق بين المرء وزوجه ، وهذا من أعظم الظلم والفساد في الأرض ، ومنها : أنه لا يقع شيء من الضرر ولا غيره إلا بإذن الله ، والمراد بالإذن هنا الإذن الكوني القدري ، ومنها : أن هذا التعلم يضرهم ولا ينفعهم ،

ومنها : أن من فعله ليس له عند الله من خلاق . والمعنى : ليس له حظ ولا نصيب من الخير . وهذا وعيد عظيم يوجب الحذر من تعلم السحر وتعليمه ، ومنها : ذمه سبحانه من تعاطي هذا السحر بقوله تعالى : ( وَلَبِئْسَ مَا شَرَوْا بِهِ أَنفُسَهُمْ ) والمراد بالشراء هنا البيع ، ومنها : إخباره سبحانه أن هذا العمل ينافي الإيمان والتقوى


وبهذه الوجوه يظهر لكل مسلم شدة تحريم تعلم السحر وتعليمه ، وكثرة ما فيه من الفساد والضرر ، وأنه مع هذا كفر بعد الإيمان ، وردة عن الإسلام ، نعوذ بالله من ذلك . فالواجب الحذر من ذلك ، وأن يكتفي المسلم بالعلاج الشرعي وبالأدوية المباحة بدلاً من العلاج بما حرمه الله عليه شرعاً ، والله ولي التوفيق انتهى . “مجلة الدعوة” – تاريخ 10 / 11 / 1414 هـ .

Shaikh Bin Baz – rahimahullah – was asked about the ruling of trying to cure magic by using magic in cases of necessity.

He replied: It is not permissible to try to cure magic by using magic. Because the Prophet (sallallahu alayhe wa sallam) said about “an-nushrah”: “It is from the work of shaytaan.” And “an-nushrah” is removing magic by using magic. And (it is not permisible) because removing it by using magic involves calling upon the jinn and seeking their help. And this is major polytheism. Because of this, Allaah – free is He from all deficiencies and defects – informed us about the two angels (sent as a trial) that they said to whoever wanted to learn magic from them: “And they didn’t teach anyone until they had said: ‘We are only a trial, so do not disbelieve.’” (2:102) and before that His – The Most High’s – statement (translated):

They followed what the Shayâtin (devils) gave out (falsely of the magic) in the lifetime of Sulaimân (Solomon). Sulaimân did not disbelieve, but the Shayâtin (devils) disbelieved, teaching men magic and such things that came down at Babylon to the two angels, Hârût and Mârût,”1 (2:102)

Then He – High is He above all the falsehoods attributed to Him – said (translated):

but neither of these two (angels) taught anyone (such things) till they had said, ‘We are only for trial, so disbelieve not (by learning this magic from us).’ And from these (angels) people learn that by which they cause separation between man and his wife, but they could not thus harm anyone except by Allâh’s Leave. And they learn that which harms them and profits them not. And indeed they knew that the buyers of it (magic) would have no share in the Hereafter. And how bad indeed was that for which they sold their ownselves, if they but knew.

And if they had believed, and guarded themselves from evil and kept their duty to Allâh, far better would have been the reward from their Lord, if they but knew!”2 (2:102-3)

 

And in these two verses are a warning from learning magic and from teaching it from many angles.

From them:

(1) That it is from the work of shaytaan, (2) That learning it is disbelief which negates faith (Eemaan), (3) That (magic) can cause separation between the husband and wife – and this is from the greatest of oppressions and corruptions in the earth, (4) Nothing from harm – or other than that – can occur except with the allowance of Allaah – and what is meant here by ‘allowance’ is the universal allowance that He has decreed (not that He is pleased with it since He is only pleased with obedience), (5) That their learning it (magic) harmed them and did not benefit them, (6) That the one who does this has no share in the Hereafter. Meaning: he will have no portion nor share of any good. And this is a tremendous warning which requires warning from learning magic and teaching it. (7) His – subhaanahu – criticism of whoever practices magic in His – The Most High’s – statement (translated):

And how bad indeed was that for which they sold their ownselves3” (2:102)

And the meaning of “shiraa’” here is “selling”. (8) His – subhaanahu – informing (us) that this deed negates Eemaan and taqwaa (2:103).

From these angles it becomes clear to every Muslim the severity of the prohibition of learning magic or teaching it. And there are many harms and evils in that. Along with this, it is disbelief after faith, and apostacy after Islam – we seek refuge with Allaah from that. So it is obligatory to warn from that. The Muslim is sufficed with the Legislative treatments and the permissible medicines instead of treatments from what Allaah has forbidden in His Legislation.”

The Prohibition of Curing Magic by using Magic – Shaikh Muhammad al-Ameen ash-Shanqeetee

September 10, 2013

The following translated from:

http://www.ajurry.com/vb/showthread.php?t=25441

 

 


وقال الشيخ محمد الأمين المختار الشنقيطي : ” التحقيق الذي لا ينبغي العدول عنه في هذه المسألة : أن استخراج السحر إن كان بالقرآن كالمعوذتين ، وآية الكرسي ، ونحو ذلك مما تجوز الرقية به فلا مانع من ذلك ، وإن كان بسحر أو ألفاظ أعجمية أو بما لا يفهم معناه ، أو بنوع آخر مما لا يجوز فإنه ممنوع ، وهذا واضح ، وهو الصواب إن شاء الله تعالى كما ترى انتهى من أضواء البيان” (4/465) .

 

 

Shaikh Muhammad al Ameen ash-Shanqeetee said: “The implementation which is not befitting to turn away from in this matter is:

 

That if removing magic is done using the Quran – like the last two surahs, ayatul Kursi, and what is similar to that from what is allowed to do ruqyah with, then there is nothing to prevent that.

 

But if it (removing magic) is done using magic, or non-Arabic expressions, or with (words/statements) whose meanings cannot be understood, or with some other type from (those types) which are not permissible, then it is forbidden. This is clear and it is what is correct, in shaa Allaah Ta’aalaa – as can be seen.” (Adhwaa’ul Bayaan 4/465)

Sins Remove the Favors of Allah

August 20, 2012

المعاصي تزيل النعم Sins remove the favors (of Allah)

ومن عقوبات الذنوب : أنها تزيل النعم ، وتحل النقم ، فما زالت عن العبد نعمة إلا بذنب ، ولا حلت به نقمة إلا بذنب ، كما قال علي بن أبي طالب رضي الله عنه – : ما نزل بلاء إلا بذنب ، ولا رفع إلا بتوبة .

And from the punishments for sins is that they remove the favors and cause the punishments to occur.  No favor has been removed from the servant except because of a sin.  And no punishment has occurred except because of a sin.  As was said by Ali bin Abee Taalib – Allah be pleased with him – no trial descends except for a sin, and no trial is raised except with repentance.

وقد قال تعالى : وما أصابكم من مصيبة فبما كسبت أيديكم ويعفو عن كثير

[ سورة الشورى : 30] .

And indeed Allah, The Most High, said (translated), ‘ And whatever afflicts you from calamaties is from what your own hands have earned.  And He forgives much.’ (42:30)

وقال تعالى :

ذلك بأن الله لم يك مغيرا نعمة أنعمها على قوم حتى يغيروا ما بأنفسهم

[ سورة الأنفال : 53] .

And The Most High said (translated), ‘That’s because Allah won’t change the favor He has bestowed upon a people until they change what is in their own selves.’ (8:53)

فأخبر الله تعالى أنه لا يغير نعمه التي أنعم بها على أحد حتى يكون هو الذي يغير ما بنفسه ، فيغير طاعة الله بمعصيته ، وشكره بكفره ، وأسباب رضاه بأسباب سخطه ، فإذا غير غير عليه ، جزاء وفاقا ، وما ربك بظلام للعبيد .
So Allah, The Most High, has informed us that He doesn’t change His Favors that He has bestowed upon anyone until he changes them with himself.  So a person changes obedience to Allah to disobedience to Him, or he changes his gratitude to Him to ingratitude to Him, or He changes from things which cause Him to be pleased to things which cause Him to be displeased.  So if the person changes, then things are changed for him – an exact  recompense.  And your Lord is not oppressive to His servants.

فإن غير المعصية بالطاعة ، غير الله عليه العقوبة بالعافية ، والذل بالعز .

And if he changes the disobedience to obedience, then Allah changes for Him the punishment to forgiveness, and humiliation to honoring

وقال تعالى :إن الله لا يغير ما بقوم حتى يغيروا ما بأنفسهم وإذا أراد الله بقوم سوءا فلا مرد له وما لهم من دونه من وال

[ سورة الرعد : 11 ] .

And The Most High said (translated): “Verily! Allâh will not change the good condition of a people as long as they do not change their state of goodness themselves (by committing sins and by being ungrateful and disobedient to Allâh). But when Allâh wills a people’s punishment, there can be no turning back of it, and they will find besides Him no protector.”1 (13:11)
