Is there anything like BLACK MAGIC and UNSEEN.

Mu' meneen Brothers and Sisters,

As Salaam Aleikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh.  (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)


One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:


Dear Brother in Islam, pls does Qurbani exicit in islam, if he those please i would like you to explain in detail, and is there anything like BLACK MAGIC and UNSEEN.


(There may be some grammatical and spelling errors in the above statement. The forum does not change anything from questions, comments and statements received from our readers for circulation in confidentiality.)




Black magic and unseen

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 no one (no idol, no person, no grave, no prophet, no imam, no dai, nobody!) 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: pls does Qurbani exicit in islam,

Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 22 Surah Hajj verse 34-37:

34 To every people did We appoint rites (of sacrifice) that they might celebrate the name of Allah over the sustenance He gave them from animals; but your Allah is one Allah: submit then your wills to Him (in Islam) and give thou the Good News to those who humble themselves.

35 To those whose hearts when Allah is mentioned are filled with fear who show patient perseverance over their afflictions, keep up regular prayer, and spend (in charity) out of what we have bestowed upon them.

36 The sacrificial camels we have made for you as among the Symbols from Allah: in them is (much) good for you: then pronounce the name of Allah over them as they line up (for sacrifice): when they are down on their sides (after slaughter) eat ye thereof and feed such as (beg not but) live in contentment and such as beg with due humility: thus have we made animals subject to you that ye may be grateful.

37 It is not the meat nor the blood (of the sacrificial animals) that reaches Allah: it is your piety that reaches Him: He has thus made them subject to you that ye may glorify Allah for His guidance to you: and proclaim the Good News to all who do right.


Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 22 Surah Hajj verse 27-28:

27 And proclaim the Pilgrimage among men: they will come to thee on foot and (mounted) on every kind of camel lean on account of journeys through deep and distant mountain highways;

28 That they may witness the benefits (provided) for them and celebrate the name of Allah through the Days appointed over the cattle which He has provided for them (for sacrifice): then eat ye thereof and feed the distressed ones in want.


Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 6 Surah Anaam verses 161-163:

161 Say: "Verily my Lord hath guided me to a way that is straight a religion of right the path (trod) by Abraham, the true in faith, and he (certainly) joined not gods with Allah."

162 Say: "Truly my prayer, and my service of sacrifice, my life, and my death, are (all) for Allah the Cherisher of the Worlds:

163 No partner hath He: this am I commanded, and I am the first of those who bow to His Will.”


Dear and beloved brother in Islam, the rite and act of sacrifice is indeed a form and manifestation of worship as commanded and guided by Allah Subhanah in His Glorious Quran.


Your Question: and is there anything like BLACK MAGIC

Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 2 Surah Baqarah verse 102:

102 They followed what the evil ones gave out (falsely) against the power of Solomon; the blasphemers were not Solomon but the evil ones teaching men magic and such things as came down at Babylon to the Angels Harut and Marut. But neither of these taught anyone (such things) without saying: "We are only for trial so do not blaspheme." They learned from them the means to sow discord between man and wife. But they could not thus harm anyone except by Allah's permission. And they learned what harmed them not what profited them. And they knew that the buyers of (magic) would have no share in the happiness of the Hereafter. And vile was the price for which they did sell their souls if they but knew!


Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 7 Surah Aaraaf verses 116-118:

116 Said Moses: "Throw ye (first)." So when they (the magicians) threw, they bewitched the eyes of the people and struck terror into them: for they showed a great (feat of) magic.

117 We put it into Moses's mind by inspiration: "throw (now) thy rod": and behold! It swallows up straightway all the falsehoods which they fake!

118 Thus Truth was confirmed and all that they did was made of no effect.


Dear and Beloved Brother, first and foremost allow us to clarify that there is no such thing as a ‘black’, or a ‘red’, or a ‘white’, or a ‘yellow’ magic! According to the guidance of the Quran, there are two types of magic.

  1. The type of magic given by the two Angels Harut and Marut by the permission of Allah Subhanah as a trial for the people, whereby the magic would cause differences between a husband and a wife in marriage.
  2. The second type is the magic which was an illusion performed by the magicians in the court of Pharoah, whereby their staff when thrown became a snake.


Thus to answer the question if ‘magic exists’, the answer in light of the guidance of the above absolutely clear guidance of the Quran would be ‘yes’!


Beloved Brother, the thing we, as believers, must understand that those who claim to do magic do not have the power to hurt or benefit anyone, without the permission of Allah Subhanah. No harm and no benefit can happen to the believer without the Will of Allah Subhanah. If Allah does not will it, all the magicians of the world can get together and try their magic on someone, they cannot harm him in the least!; for Absolutely All Power and All Strength belongs to none save Allah Subhanah Alone!


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.

Your Question: and is there anything like UNSEEN.

Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 2 Surah Baqarah verses 2-5:

2 This is the Book; in it is guidance sure without doubt to those who fear Allah.

3 Who believe in the Unseen, are steadfast in prayer, and spend out of what We have provided for them.

4 And who believe in the Revelation sent to thee (O Mohamed (saws)), and sent before thy time, and (in their hearts) have the assurance of the Hereafter.

5 They are on (true) guidance from their Lord and it is these who will prosper.


Dear and beloved brother, it is one of primary articles of faith in Islam that a believer believes ONLY in the ‘unseen’ that is declared by Allah in His Glorious Quran and what Allah chose to make known to His Last and Final Messenger, Mohamed ar-Rasool Allah (saws), and the Prophet (saws) made it known to the believers.


Amongst the ‘unseen’ that a believer is commanded and guided by Allah and His Messenger (saws) with absolute and total conviction are:

  1. The existence of Allah Subhanah
  2. The existence of the Angels of Allah
  3. The existence of the concept of the Hereafter
  4. The existence of Paradise
  5. The existence of Hell Fire
  6. The existence of the Day of Judgment
  7. The creation and the existence of the Jinns
  8. The punishment of the graves
  9. The Divine ‘Qadr’ or Decree of Allah Subhanah.

Etc, etc.


Beloved brother, of anything of the ‘unseen’ the believers believe with total and absolute conviction what is related by Allah Subhanah in His Glorious Quran or what is related by the Messenger of Allah (saws) in his established and authentic Sunnah….if a matter of the ‘unseen’ does not find mention in either of the above two sources of Truth, the believers are not to believe in it.


Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 6 Surah Anaam verse 59:

59 With Him (Allah) are the keys of the Unseen, the treasures that none knoweth but He. He knoweth whatever there is on the earth and in the sea. Not a leaf doth fall but with His Knowledge: there is not a grain in the darkness (or depths) of the earth, nor anything fresh or dry (green or withered), but is (inscribed) in a Record Clear (with Him).


Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chatper 72 Surah Jinn verses 26-27:

26 "He (Allah Alone) knows the Unseen, nor does He make any one acquainted with His mysteries

27 except a Messenger whom He (Allah) has chosen.


Thus my beloved brother, to believe in all the ‘unseen’ that has been declared by Allah and His Messenger (saws) is an absolute and primary article of faith in Islam. Such is the importance of the belief in the ‘unseen’ that is declared by Allah and His Messenger (saws), that one who denies belief in any of the ‘unseen’ declared by Allah and His Messenger (saws) cannot be a believer in the Sight of Allah Subhanah!


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 Allah’s 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,
