In Islam how much of a sin is it to pursue magick?
How are the sins considered if someone uses magick for personal benefit and to harm or ruin another human beings life?
i.e: The use of demons and jinn.
Can someone use rituals and magick and still try to practice Islam. Surely they would be pure hypocrites
I am not talking about card tricks and no i have not incorrectly spelled ‘magick’.

Moonlight Sonata

its a grave sin
ask in ramadan section


It is considered to be kufr – part of disbelief. We have been told that any involvement in this area will nullify our prayers for 40 days.
We should stay away from magic, astrology, tarot card – all this is from Shaitaan.


first magic not magick… and second… you can join the golden dawn if your seeking enlightenment

It is prohibited and is punishable by death. It is as offensive as being a heretic.

David Gunn

A huge sin. Such a big one that they’ll strap a bomb to you and send you to the local synagogue.


well if your a real muslim you will submit your self to a nice relaxing stoning to death. yea isn’t religion great. not only does it limit you but it also helps others release stress.


Magic basically consists of tricks and ok for entertainment.
Such dark arts have always fascinated me though but I dare not try them.


well there is nori ilam(light magic)that can be used for personal or some ones benefit but only good muslims can use that and it is never accurate until great allams(scholars) use it where black magic is concerned it is a huge sin its punishment can go from 100 lashes to stoned to death depending what kind of black magic is used and those who use black magic it is really hard for them to go to heaven i think maybe they wouldnt go to heaven


Magic in all its forms in haraam according to all divinely-revealed laws, and there is scholarly consensus that magic and learning magic are haraam (forbidden).
Magic goes against that which the Messengers brought and it opposes the purpose for which the Books were revealed


It is totally thrown out from Islam if any muslim do magic
or try to learn it
ask here


When is a practitioner of magic a kaafir?
Is every practitioner of magic or witchcraft a kaafir?
Praise be to Allaah.
The practitioner of magic is the person who uses the shayaateen (devils) and gets close to the jinn by doing the things they like — such as sacrificing to them instead of to Allaah, calling upon them alongside Allaah, obeying them by disobeying Allaah by committing zinaa, drinking wine, eating haraam things, neglecting prayer, covering himself with najaasaat (impure things) and staying in dirty places — until the shayaateen respond to what he asks them, with a gentle and kind approach, to do, such as harming the people against whom he uses his magic, causing division between a man and his wife, telling him some unseen things, and telling him about stolen items and where lost things are. Such a person is a mushrik and a kaafir, because he worships both Allaah and the Shaytaan, which is major shirk (al-shirk al-akbar). So he is a kaafir, because Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning);
“Sulaymaan did not disbelieve, but the Shayaateen (devils) disbelieved, teaching men magic” [al-Baqarah 2:102]
“but neither of these two (angels) taught anyone (such things) till they had said, ‘We are for trial, so disbelieve not (by learning this magic from us).’” [al-Baqarah 2:102]
It was also commanded that the practitioner of magic should be executed, because of the hadeeth: “The hadd (prescribed punishment) for the practitioner of magic is a blow with the sword (i.e., execution).”
(Narrated by al-Tirmidhi, 1460; al-Daaraqutni, 3/114; al-Haakim, 4/360; al-Bayhaqi, 8/136; see al-Silsilah al-Da’eefah, 3/641, no. 1446)
On this basis, he is a kaafir even if he prays, fasts, reads Qur’aan and makes du’aa’, because shirk cancels out all good deeds. And Allaah knows best.
