وعليكم السلام

Not all Sunnis. I’m a Sunni, I don’t believe in magic at all. Magic isn’t real.

The evil eye is true, but amulets and rings are not protection. Saying ma sha Allah and reciting various du’as, Quran are how to ward it off.

Jinn are real, and demonic possession is true.

Salam,

Many Shias believe in such things, but they aren't part of the religion.

Mostly just superstitions for simple minded people.

Which verses are you taking about specifically?

Here are some opinions:

http://realtashayyu.blogspot.com/2013/01/how-to-cure-black-magic.html?m=1

Also in our era, pretty much all the students of sayed al-Khu'i, many of whom are the biggest fuqaha' reject black magic.

The Holy Quran says its fake.

I think it says it's an illusion. That's why the magicians were so shocked when Prophet Moses actually turned his staff into wood. But I believe the Quran refers to another kind of magic which is like cursing. That one isn't an illusion and we have methods of defending ourselves from it.

I’m not sure what you’re referring to. The Quran says that the magic which Pharoah’s magicians performed was a “great magic”. You agree that nevertheless it was an illusion, so how can there be another form of magic that has a real effect?

then what does the sura 113 refer to then?

Look at the tri-literal root ghayn sin qaf. In Sura 113, inshallah, it is 'a darkness', yet it also means purulence/pus indicating a sickness, inflammation. Then this is understood as a sickness of, or inflammation of the nafs (brain -to use modern idiom). So it is a 'darkness' because these spook-lovers do not see the Ayats of Allah -(سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى).

The 'blow on knots' and refer to the superstitions sick-in-the-heads employ.

It is whatever God decides to call it. And it's clear that there are different types of magic, at least two from what I know (illusions and curses). 

Because why would God give us solutions to problems that don't exist?

Cursing is not magic, if it was, then it would be haram to curse anyone, which it isn’t.

And what are the so-called “solutions” God Almighty, hallowed be His Name, gives us to combat magic?

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. (102)

Quote

According to hadiths, a group of people practiced magics and witchcraft in the period of Solomon (a). He ordered that all their writings be gathered and kept in a place.[6] After Solomon's (a) death, some of them found the writings and began to learn magics. They said that Solomon (a) was not a prophet and that he just took over the territories and did extraordinary things by magics. They were followed by a number of Israelites.[7]

The practice of magics prevailed in Babylon in such a way that people were frustrated and hurt. God sent two angels to them in the form of human persons in order to teach people the magics and the ways of neutralizing them so that they can get rid of the devils of magicians.[8]

The Qur'an rejects the claim that Harut and Marut did evil things.[9] It says that the magics was revealed to them, but they intended no harms.[10] They reminded people that "we are a trial, so do not disbelieve and do not misuse the knowledge", but people misused the knowledge and disbelieved God.[11]

20. Does ‘Injury by an Evil Eye’ Possess any Reality?

In verse 51 of Suratul Qalam, we read:

وَ إِنْ يَكَادُ الَّذِينَ كَفَرُوا لَيُزْلِقُونَكَ بِأَبْصَارِهِمْ لَمَّا سَمِعُوا الذِّكْرَ…

“And those who disbelieve would almost smite you with their eyes when they hear the reminder…”

 

The Noble Prophet (S) replied:

لَوْ كَانَ شَيْ‏ءٌ يَسْبِقُ الْقَدْرِ لَسَبَقَهُ الْعَيْنَ‏.

“Yes (there is no harm in it). Had there been something that could have superseded Divine fate and destiny, it should have been 'evil eye!'”1

In another tradition it has been reported that the Commander of the Faithful ((عليه السلام).) said: The Noble Prophet (S) secured a charm for Imam Hasan and Imam Husayn ((عليه السلام).) and recited the following supplication:

أُعِيذُكُمَا بِكَلِمَاتِ اللٌّهِ التَّامَّةِاتِ وَ أَسْمَائِهِ الْحُسْنَى كُلِّهَا عَامَّةً مِنْ شَرِّ السَّامَّةِ وَ الْهَامَّةِ وَ مِنْ شَرِّ كُلِّ عَيْنٍ لاَمَّةٍ وَ مِنْ شَرِّ حَاسِدٍ إِذَا حَسَدَ.

“I place you in the refuge of all of the Perfect Words and the Best Names of Allah ((سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى).) from death, harmful animals, evil eye and from the evil of the envious when he envies.”

Then turning to us, he (S) said: “Likewise Prophet Ibrahim did the charm for Isma'il and Ishaq.”2

In Nahjul Balaghah we read:

الْعَيْنُ حَقٌّ وَ الرُّقَـى حَقٌ‏.

“Injury by the evil eye is true and resorting to prayers to ward away its evils is true too.”3 and 4

Quote

3.Nahjul Balagha, Short Sayings 400. This tradition has also been narrated as: العين حق in Sahih Bukhari, vol. 7, pg. 171 in the chapter العين حق. In the book al-Mu'jam al-Mufahhras Li-Alfadh al-Hadith al-Nabawi, (vol. 4, pg. 451) this same meaning has been reported from various sources.

There are different ways to neutralize the effect of evil eye in different cultures. In some Asian areas, it is widely believed that burning peganum harmala (esfand or aspand) and breaking egg are good for counteracting evil eyes.[27] However, there is nothing in religious sources to confirm such practices; thus, some people take it to be superstitious. Also, blue beads are used as bracelets, necklaces, or adornments hanging from walls and the like in order to protect one against evil eye, but according to fatwas of some marja's, there is no jurisprudential evidence for this practice

Quote

Sahl ibn Hanif was one of the most sincere and bravest companions of the Prophet of Islam ((صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم)) and Imam Ali (عليه السلام). He participated in all the wars with the Prophet ((صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم)), and was very handsome and his beautiful face was well known among people. It is narrated about him: He was with the Prophet ((صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم)) in one of the wars, and reached a river, washed himself in it and and one of the people who saw him out of surprise said a sentence about him, after which he became very ill with fever. He was taken to the Prophet ((صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم)); after asking about him, the Prophet ((صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم)) said: What will happen if you find a good thing about the body or wealth/property of your brother; say God bless/May God bless you? Because evil eye is real (it is the truth). Then the prophet ((صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم)) recommended in these cases, pray for the intended person [1].

Supplications for warding off sorcery and evil eye

Harm of the evil eye

It is narrated from Abi Abdullah ((عليه السلام).) that he said: If the graves are opened for you, you will see that the majority of the people died due to the evil eye, because the evil eye is a fact; know that the Messenger of Allah ((صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم).s.) has said: The evil eye is a fact. So one who is astonished by something his brother has, he should mention Allah’s name (i.e. say Maa Shaa Allaah). For if he does so it would not harm him.[1]

It is narrated from Abi Abdullah ((عليه السلام).) that he said: The evil eye is a fact. You are not safe from it yourself and neither others are safe from you. So when you fear something like this say: “As Allah willed” (Maa Shaa Allaah). There is no strength and power, except by Allah, the Exalted and the Mighty,” three times. He said: When one of you dresses in such elegant way that arouses amazement, he should recite Surah Falaq and Surah Naas while leaving his house; then it would not cause harm by the leave of Allah.[2]

People who don't believe in the existence of dark forces and their dark magic, are under control of dark magic.  The people who believe in Islam and Quran and aren't aware of the mechanism of dark magic upon human minds and hearts, their Islam and Quran is so distorted and far removed from God's pleasure,  that no doubt they will be in hell forever, as they were too intoxicated in falsehood and love of Dunya to awaken to the true realm and kingdom of God and were totally blind to reality of God's light and the combat between dark forces and Angels, and the reality of the Mastery and Authority of the family of the reminder as stars and lanterns of the sky linked to this world.  No doubt, they aren't believers in "the hidden" no matter how much intellectually they are convinced of existence of Angels or Jinn or God,  had they truly believed in it, they would've become aware and be able to sense it to some degree.  The Imam (a) lives with us all, being blind to this pointer and proof of God your whole life, will result in blindness in the next world to God's beauty while there is of course no blindness to the fact God is true on the day of judgment.  Whoever doesn't see God's light in this world will not see it in the next, however they will be sure of God's existence and be unable to do a sincere prayer to him that avails them.

People unaware of dark magic have not even began to fight Iblis at all nor understand the Quran much at all. They are under his control completely.

Learning something doesn’t necessarily mean that that which is learned is true. People learn nonsensical things all the time. Just because people seriously study how to cast magic spells to create dischord in a marriage doesn’t mean they can actually do that.

Astrologers study astrology and learn how to predict events based on the position of the stars and zodiacs. Does that mean they can actually predict future events? Of course not. Interestingly, the Prophet (sall Allahu alaihi wasallam) actually said astrology is a branch of magic, which enhances my argument.

People study and learn mythology. Does that mean what they studied and learned is actually true?

Narrated Aisha:

Magic was worked on Allah's Messenger (ﷺ) so that he used to think that he had sexual relations with his wives while he actually had not (Sufyan said: That is the hardest kind of magic as it has such an effect). Then one day he said, "O `Aisha do you know that Allah has instructed me concerning the matter I asked Him about? Two men came to me and one of them sat near my head and the other sat near my feet. The one near my head asked the other. What is wrong with this man?' The latter replied the is under the effect of magic The first one asked, Who has worked magic on him?' The other replied Labid bin Al-A'sam, a man from Bani Zuraiq who was an ally of the Jews and was a hypocrite.' The first one asked, What material did he use)?' The other replied, 'A comb and the hair stuck to it.' The first one asked, 'Where (is that)?' The other replied. 'In a skin of pollen of a male date palm tree kept under a stone in the well of Dharwan' '' So the Prophet (ﷺ) went to that well and took out those things and said "That was the well which was shown to me (in a dream) Its water looked like the infusion of Henna leaves and its date-palm trees looked like the heads of devils." The Prophet (ﷺ) added, "Then that thing was taken out' I said (to the Prophet (ﷺ) ) "Why do you not treat yourself with Nashra?" He said, "Allah has cured me; I dislike to let evil spread among my people."

 

That doesn't sound like illusions, hypnotism or placebo effects.

I’m part of a Sunni minority that rejects this Hadith. Neither do I believe Sahih al-Bukhari is 100% authentic. Allamah Ahmad Sa’id Multani رحمة الله عليه wrote an entire book Quran Muqaddas aur Bukhari Muhaddith criticizing many narrations in Bukhari sharif for content that is clearly contrary to the Quran, among them, the incident of a Jewish Lubaid b. A’sam casting a magic spell on the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم. In all honesty, that seems like some classic anti-Semitic propaganda to me.

The Quran says:

وَ قَالَ الظّٰلِمُوۡنَ اِنۡ تَتَّبِعُوۡنَ اِلَّا رَجُلًا مَّسۡحُوۡرًا

And the wrongdoers say, ‘You follow none but a man bewitched.’ (25:8)

Some other classic Sunni scholarly authorities rejected the reality of magic, like Imam al-A’zam Abi Hanifah رحمة الله عليه, Abu Bakr al-Jassas al-Hanafi (who specifically rejected the Hadith of magic spell cast on the Prophet by Jewish sorcerer), Abu Ja’far al-Istarabadhi al-Shafi’i, Ibn Hazm al-Zahiri, and others.

Salam I agree with you but holy Quran talks about intention of people from learning magic but in other hand says that their magic doesn't make hurt until Allah doesn't allow it anyway  Imam Ali (عليه السلام) like prophet Muhammad (pbu) said same thing about Astrology for prediction of future in Nahjul Balagha which only advised just learn it for navigation to find our way from position of stars.

Salaam brother I agree but Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) has given free will to human beings for now and has allowed a lot of things until Day of Judgement so maybe magic is one of them.

Salaam everyone please watch this short video about magicians it is a very interesting and cool video.

With all due respect to Sh. Hamza Yusuf, the argument that modern technology is rooted in magic and devil worship is ludicrous. I can expect an ignorant person who has no idea how modern technology works to imagine this is true, but any educated person, including Hamza Yusuf, should necessarily know that there is no element of magic or invoking of demonic forces in modern technology.

On the contrary, modern technology is mass produced, replicated and used throughout the world by billions of people simply following instructions and using their education. If there was any element of invoking a demon or casting some magic spell, that would have been exposed big time.

The evidence he uses is that apparently some of the greatest inventors or people who discovered or contributed to the development of modern technology were also involved in devil worship. How is that a proof that their devil worship is directly linked to modern technology?

Are you arguing, therefore, that the true knowledge of Islam is intuitive rather than intellectual and rooted in awareness of unseen forces? Given that various factors in our environment—including electromagnetic frequencies, fluoridation, genetic modification, interest-based banking, and all forms of contamination—have altered our DNA over millennia, many of us are probably born with diluted fitrah and therefore have been under the sway of dark magic since birth. Therefore, if one is already under the control of dark magic since birth, then one is already deprived of the capacity to develop spiritual awareness, so Duas prove ineffectual.

Quote

The evil eye is a damage to a human person or other animals and objects thought to be caused by being looked at by some evil-eyed person.[1] The evil eye is a non-volitional state arising from a feeling of envy for a person's happiness, success, beauty, admiration, and the like. Some people believe that the evil eye is an effect of one's psychological faculties.[2] The evil eye is closely tied to envy, and in some hadiths, envy is said to be the origin of evil eyes. [3]According to al-Allama al-Majlisi, some exegetes of the Qur'an take the verse 5 of Qur'an 113 [4] in which the envy of envious people is mentioned to be about evil eyes.

https://en.wikishia.net/view/Evil_Eye

Anger of Unbelievers

The word, "in" (إن) with no stress on "n" (ن) is a short form of "inna" (إنّ), which is a preposition for emphasis. "Yazliqūnak" (یزلقونك) is from the Arabic root, "z-l-q" (ز-ل-ق) which means slipping or tripping. "izlāq" (أزلاق)—literally, to make someone slip or trip—is a metaphor for striking or killing someone.

The meaning of the verse is as follows: "the Unbelievers would almost trip you up with their eyes when they heard the reminder [i.e. the Qur'an]", that is, they would kill the Prophet (s) with their evil eyes.[1] According to some exegetes of the Qur'an, the verse means that when they hear the Qur'an from the Prophet (s), they look at him with an eye full of hostility and anger, such that they want to kill him with their eyes.[2]

Some unbelievers accused the Prophet (s) of being insane, saying that the Qur'an was suggested to him by evils and jins. In response, the Qur'an said that the Qur'an "is nothing less than a reminder to all the worlds".[3]
