Ramadan: are mind powers such as physcokineses or telepathy haram?

just wondering ive been practicing at it for a while and ive seen some results ive been able to make a toothpick move a little..


  1. No one has any authority over anyone else and if you are doing such things you are communicating with the Jinn that live 1000 years each and are well aware of all you do.
    Study them for they are studding you.

  2. Praise be to Allaah.
    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.
    Magic goes against that which the Messengers brought and it opposes the purpose for which the Books were revealed.
    Most of the scholars were of the view that the one who practices magic is a kaafir whom the authorities are obliged to execute.
    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]
    This proves that that magic is kufr
    Most of the Shaafa’i fuqahaa’ were of the view that the one who practices magic is not a kaafir unless he believes that magic is permitted or he believes something like the people of Babylon believed, that practicing magic would bring them closer to the seven stars [which they used to worship].
    This is subject to further debate; there is no evidence to suggest that (describing the one who practices magic as a kaafir) is conditional upon his believing that to be permissible.
    The correct view is that the one who practices magic is a kaafir, whether he believes it to be haraam or not. Simply doing magic is kufr. This is the apparent meaning of the evidence, and there are no other texts to contradict this.
    Once it is proven that a person is guilty of practicing magic, then he must be killed. This was proven from a group of the Sahaabah, but it is not for individuals to carry out this hadd punishment without the command of the ruler or his deputy, because carrying out the hadd punishments without the authority of the ruler may lead to mischief, and destroy any sense of security in the society, and undermine the position of the ruler.
    Shaykh Sulaymaan al-‘Alwaan
