Answer:

 

Mehram magic cure

In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is none worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.

 

Your Question: i want to ask the diffrence between mahram and namehram...

Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 4 Surah Nisaa verses 22-23:

And do not marry at all those women whom your father had married, though what has happened in the past is excepted. This is an indecent and abominable thing and an evil practice.

Forbidden to you are your mothers, daughters, sisters, paternal aunts, maternal aunts, brothers daughters, sisters daughters, your foster mothers who have given suckle to you, your foster sisters who have taken suckle with you, the mothers of your wives, the daughters of your wives whom you have brought up, the daughters of your wives with whom you have conjugal relations, and it is not sinful for you to marry their daughters (after having divorced them). Also forbidden to you are the wives of your sons who are from your loins, and it is unlawful for you to keep two real sisters as wives at one and the same time, though what has happened in the past is excepted, for Allah is indeed Forgiving, Merciful.

 

The Arabic term mehram is derived from haram which literally means something which is sacred, or sacrosanct, or prohibited. In the terminology of Islamic Jurisprudence a mehram relative is generally one to whom marriage is absolutely and permanently prohibited; and a non-mehram is generally one to whom marriage is permissible.

 

Islam permits and allows the believers to interact, meet, talk, sit, travel, and associate freely and without fear of sexual overtures with ones mehram relatives; but Islam commands and guides that one lower their gaze, scrupulously guard their modesty, take utmost care and associate with non-mehram members of the opposite sex only if one has an absolutely genuine need and with extreme caution.

 

Your Qeustion: someone once told me to recite (suret feel) and (suret lahab)..5 times a day cause i am bound in magic....what sould i do? 

Allah Says in His Holy Quran Chapter 35 Surah Fatir verse 2:

2 What Allah out of His Mercy doth bestow on mankind there is none can withhold: what He doth withhold there is none can grant apart from Him: and He is the Exalted in Power Full of Wisdom.

 

Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 3 Surah Ale Imraan verse 160:

If Allah helps you none can overcome you: if He forsakes you who is there after that that can help you? In Allah then let believers put their trust.

 

Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 9 Surah Taubah verse 51:

Say: "Nothing will happen to us except what Allah has decreed for us: He is our Protector"; and on Allah let the believers put their trust.

 

Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 6 Surah Anaam verse 17:

17 If Allah touch thee with affliction none can remove it but He; if He touch thee with happiness He hath power over all things.

 

Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 33 Surah Ahzaab verse 3:

And put your trust in Allah Alone; and enough is Allah as a Disposer of affairs.

 

Allah is our witness sister, if all the Jinns and all the magicians of the world were to get together and plot and plan to bring about any harm upon anyone, they would not even be able to damage even one hair on the body of that individual without the precise Will and Permission of Allah Subhanah, the Lord of the Worlds! Thus one should neither fear the Jinns, nor the magicians, but rather one should fear Allah their Lord, and keep their full trust and belief in Him and Him Alone.

 

Al-Tirmidhi Hadith 4563 Narrated by Abu Sa'id al-Khudri

Allah's Messenger (saws used to seek refuge in Allah from jinn and the evil eye in men till the Mu'awwidhatan (Surah 113 Al-Falaq and Surah 114 An-Naas) were revealed, after which he (saws) made use of them and abandoned everything else.

 

If ever one fears any evil from any quarter, the guidance of the Messenger of Allah (saws) dictates that one recite the Muawwidhaat (Surahs 113 Al-Falaq and 114 An-Naas), seeking refuge and putting their complete trust and faith in the Power and Strength and Protection of Allah Subhanah Alone; it is expected that their Lord Most High will protect them from any and all evil and no evil or harm will be able to approach them from any quarter.

 

Your Statement:..someone once told me to recite (suret feel) and (suret lahab)..5 times a day cause i am bound in magic

Although the Surah Al-Feel and Surah Lahab are two amongst the blessed Surahs of the Glorious Quran and one may recite them as often one wills and pleases.to the best of our knowledge there is absolutely no evidence in the authentic and established Sunnah that the Messenger of Allah (saws) endorsed or guided the believers to recite these two blessed Surahs as an antidote to magic, nor is there any evidence from the Messenger of Allah (saws) which guides that reciting it five times a day has any special merit whatsoever.

 

Beloved Sister, it would be best to ask the person who told you to recite Surah Al-Feel and Surah Lahab five times a day as an antidote to magic to provide the evidence for his supposed prescription from the Quran and the authentic Sunnah. If the person provides the evidence from the Quran and the Sunnah, then to follow it would be guidance; but if the person is unable to provide the evidence, then know with absolute conviction that the prescription is a figment of his imagination and has nothing to do with the guidance of Islam.

 

If one trusts, obeys, and follows the guidance and commands of Allah and His Messenger (saws), one can be assured of never ever being misled; but if one believes, obeys and follows any other guidance, other than that of Allah and His Messenger (saws), one can be assured of being led astray.

 

Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.

 

Your brother and well wisher in Islam,
