Jinn

History of Humans, Jinn and The Devil (Iblees)

God created Angels first. They are made of light, have no gender or free will, and must obey and worship God. God then created jinn. Jinn are made of smokeless fire, have free will to do good or bad, and are supposed to worship Allah (Quran 51:56). The Devil (Iblees) was a jinni (singular, masculine form of jinn) who worshiped Allah (God). He was the most righteous of all the jinn, so much so that he was elevated to a high position amongst the Angels. Allah then created Adam, the first human, from clay or earth (Quran 15:26-27). Allah ordered everyone (Angels and jinn including Iblees) to bow down before Adam. Iblees didn’t want to bow down because he felt that he was superior to Adam as Iblees was made from fire and Adam from clay. God then cursed Iblees but Iblees begged Allah to spare him from punishment until the Day of Judgment. Allah agreed. In revenge, Iblees then vowed to misguide humans. Adam was living in Heaven. Allah then created Eve (Hawwa), a female human. God told Adam and Eve to enjoy Paradise and eat whatever they wanted except for the fruit of a particular tree. Iblees was also in Paradise and whispered into the hearts of Adam and Eve to eat from the forbidden tree. Adam and Eve ate from that tree and in doing so, God forced them down from Heaven to stay on earth for a while until they and their descendants (mankind) are resurrected on the Day of Judgment where each individual, including jinn, will either go to Heaven or Hell, based on their actions and belief in the world.

Proof of Jinn Existence

Jinn are mentioned in the Quran several times. There’s even a chapter called Jinn.

وَٱلۡجَآنَّ خَلَقۡنَـٰهُ مِن قَبۡلُ مِن نَّارِ ٱلسَّمُومِ (٢٧) وَإِذۡ قَالَ رَبُّكَ لِلۡمَلَـٰٓٮِٕكَةِ إِنِّى خَـٰلِقُۢ بَشَرً۬ا مِّن صَلۡصَـٰلٍ۬ مِّنۡ حَمَإٍ۬ مَّسۡنُونٍ۬ (٢٨

As for the Jann (the first Jinn), We had created him earlier from the fire of the scorching wind.  (27) Recall when your Lord said to the angels, “I am going to create a human being from a ringing clay made of decayed mud. (28)

 – (15/27-28)

وَمَا خَلَقۡتُ ٱلۡجِنَّ وَٱلۡإِنسَ إِلَّا لِيَعۡبُدُونِ (٥٦

I did not create the Jinn and the human beings except for the purpose that they should worship Me. (51/56)

وَخَلَقَ ٱلۡجَآنَّ مِن مَّارِجٍ۬ مِّن نَّارٍ۬ (١٥

And created Jann (father of the Jinn) from a smokeless flame of fire. (55/15)

قُلۡ أُوحِىَ إِلَىَّ أَنَّهُ ٱسۡتَمَعَ نَفَرٌ۬ مِّنَ ٱلۡجِنِّ فَقَالُوٓاْ إِنَّا سَمِعۡنَا قُرۡءَانًا عَجَبً۬ا (١

Say, “It has been revealed to me that a group from Jinn has listened (to the Qur’an), and said (to their people), ‘Indeed we have heard an amazing Recital (Qur’an) (72/1)

قُل لَّٮِٕنِ ٱجۡتَمَعَتِ ٱلۡإِنسُ وَٱلۡجِنُّ عَلَىٰٓ أَن يَأۡتُواْ بِمِثۡلِ هَـٰذَا ٱلۡقُرۡءَانِ لَا يَأۡتُونَ بِمِثۡلِهِۦ وَلَوۡ كَانَ بَعۡضُہُمۡ لِبَعۡضٍ۬ ظَهِيرً۬ا (٨٨

Say, “If all the humans and jinn join together to produce anything like this Qur’an, they will not (be able to) come up with anything like it, even if they assist one another. (17/88)

Jinn and Human Similarities

Jinn and humans share many similarities including:

  • each have a brain
  • each were created to worship Allah
  • each have free will to do either good or bad
  • each live and die
  • each will be judged on the Day of Judgment
  • each will abide in Heaven or Hell depending on their actions and beliefs
  • in the world, there are some that are good and some that are bad
  • each are gendered and can procreate
  • like humans, some jinn are Muslim and some follow other religions
  • jinn have characteristics like being happy, strong, sad, poor, etc
  • each eat and drink, however jinn also eat bones and animal feces

Jinn and Human Differences

  • Jinn can see humans but not vice verse (except for select gifted humans who can see jinn)
  • Jinn are made of smokeless fire
  • Jinn live much longer than humans – some living 1000 years
  • Jinn have many more offspring than human numbering in the tens or hundreds
  • Jinn are shapeshifters and can change shape such as into animals and humans
  • Satan is a jinn who has two horns

The 3 Types of Jinn

According to a hadeeth by al-Hakim, at-Thabrani and al-Bayhaqi in Shahihul Jami’ 3/85, “There are three types of jinn.

  • One type flies through the air.
  • Another type consists of snakes and dogs.
  • A third type is based in one place but travels about.”

Iblees, The Chief Devil / Satan

Iblees is the name of the jinn who disobeyed Allah when ordered to bow down to Adam. Iblees is The Devil. Iblees, like other jinn, have descendants.

وَإِذۡ قُلۡنَا لِلۡمَلَـٰٓٮِٕكَةِ ٱسۡجُدُواْ لِأَدَمَ فَسَجَدُوٓاْ إِلَّآ إِبۡلِيسَ كَانَ مِنَ ٱلۡجِنِّ فَفَسَقَ عَنۡ أَمۡرِ رَبِّهِۦۤ‌ۗ أَفَتَتَّخِذُونَهُ ۥ وَذُرِّيَّتَهُ ۥۤ أَوۡلِيَآءَ مِن دُونِى وَهُمۡ لَكُمۡ عَدُوُّۢ‌ۚ بِئۡسَ لِلظَّـٰلِمِينَ بَدَلاً۬ (٥٠

Recall, when We said to the angels, “Prostrate yourselves before ’Adam.” So, they prostrated themselves, all of them but Iblees (Satan). He was of the Jinn, so he rebelled against the command of his Lord. Do you still take him and his progeny as friends instead of Me, while they are enemy to you? Evil is he as substitute (of obedience to Allah) for wrongdoers. (50) – Al Kahf: 50

According to the following hadeeth, Iblees’ throne is in the sea and the highest ranking devil is one that causes divorce.

Imam Ahmed bin Hanbal relates that Jabir said that the prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam) Peace and salutations be upon Him. said, ‘Iblees places his throne on the sea. Then he sends forth his armies. The nearest of them to him in rank is the greatest in sedition (corruption of a state).One of them comes and says, “ I did such-and-such.”He says, “You did not do anything.”Then another comes and says, “I did not leave him until I split him from his wife.” He brings him near-or clasps him-and says, “You did well.”

Some Animals Can See Jinn

According to the following hadeeth, among them are dogs and donkeys.

The Prophet sallallaahu `alayhi wa sallam ( may Allaah exalt his mention ) said: ‘‘If you hear the barking of a dog or the braying of a donkey by night, then seek refuge in Allaah from the devil because they see what you do not see.’’ [Ahmad and Abu Daawood].

Jinn Can Enter and Flow in Humans

The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said: ‘The Shaytan flows through the son of Adam as the blood flows through his veins.’” (Bukhari and Muslim)

Where Jinn Live

According to various hadeeth, following are some places jinn live:

  • Markets
  • Restrooms
  • People’s homes
  • Bodies of water / seas and oceans
  • Holes and cracks in the earth
  • Deserts, valleys, alleys, and abandoned places

Jinn Colors

Jinn can be many different colors and can change color. Evil, non-Muslim jinn are black in color. Muslim jinn are white. When a healer does ruqyah on a possessed individual and converts the jinn from being a non-Muslim to being a Muslim, the jinn’s color changes from non-white to white. The color of the jinn is important in the healing process.

Causes of Jinn to Enter or Possess a Human

  • Love
    Jinn can fall in love with humans and consequently possess them
  • Revenge
    Humans can accidentally and unknowingly hurt jinn by, for example, stepping on or throwing out hot water on a place where a jinn happens to be.
  • Summon
    People can summon jinn by performing rituals that call jinn to then or by going to a black magic practitioner.
  • Black Magic
    Someone may do black magic or pay someone to do black magic on a target victim. The black magic often is accompanied by a jinn which is sent to the target victim.
  • Inheritance
    If a parent has a jinn for personal needs and the parent dies, the parent’s kids will inherit the jinn.

Types of Jinn Interference

  • Total
    e.g. when a jinn interferes totally with one’s body, e.g. their entire nervous system
  • Partial
    e.g. when a jinn interferes or hurts a part of one’s body, e.g. their hand, leg, knee, etc.
  • Long Term
    when a jinn interferes and stays in a person’s body for a very long time
  • Short Term
    e.g. when a jinn interferes with a person for a short period of time, e.g. when getting a nightmare

Fortune-Tellers & Knowledge of the Future

One of the most frequent activities associated with jinn is fortune telling.  Before the advent of the Prophet Muhammad, fortune-tellers and soothsayers were widespread.  These people would use their associates from the jinn to find out about the future.  The jinn would go to the lowest heaven and listen to the angels conversing amongst themselves about events of the future which they heard from God.  The jinn would then inform the fortune-tellers.  This is why before the time of the Prophet many fortune-tellers were very accurate in their predictions.  However, upon the Prophet’s arrival the heavens were guarded intensely by the angels and any jinn who tried to listen was attacked by meteors (shooting stars).

وَحَفِظۡنَـٰهَا مِن كُلِّ شَيۡطَـٰنٍ۬ رَّجِيمٍ (١٧) إِلَّا مَنِ ٱسۡتَرَقَ ٱلسَّمۡعَ فَأَتۡبَعَهُ ۥ شِہَابٌ۬ مُّبِينٌ۬ (١٨

And have protected them from every outcast devil, (17) But the one who tries to eavesdrop is chased by a clearly visible flame. (18) (15/17-18)

إِنَّا زَيَّنَّا ٱلسَّمَآءَ ٱلدُّنۡيَا بِزِينَةٍ ٱلۡكَوَاكِبِ (٦) وَحِفۡظً۬ا مِّن كُلِّ شَيۡطَـٰنٍ۬ مَّارِدٍ۬ (٧) لَّا يَسَّمَّعُونَ إِلَى ٱلۡمَلَإِ ٱلۡأَعۡلَىٰ وَيُقۡذَفُونَ مِن كُلِّ جَانِبٍ۬ (٨) دُحُورً۬ا‌ۖ وَلَهُمۡ عَذَابٌ۬ وَاصِبٌ (٩) إِلَّا مَنۡ خَطِفَ ٱلۡخَطۡفَةَ فَأَتۡبَعَهُ ۥ شِہَابٌ۬ ثَاقِبٌ۬ (١٠

Verily, We have decorated the nearest sky with an adornment, the stars, (6) And (have made them) a security against every rebellious devil. (7) They cannot listen to the Upper Realm and are hit from every side (8) To be driven off, and for them there is a lasting punishment; (9) However, if one snatches a little bit, he is pursued by a bright flame.  (10) (37/6-10)

The Prophet also said:

“They (the Jinn) would pass the information back down until it reaches the lips of a magician or fortune-teller. Sometimes a meteor would overtake them before they could pass it on.  If they passed it on before being struck, they would add to it a hundred lies” (Saheeh Al-Bukhari).

Thus, it is clear from this as to how fortune-tellers get predictions of the future sometimes right.

Qareen & Knowledge of Other People

Fortune-tellers also operate through the Qareen.  The Qareen is the jinn companion which is assigned to every human being.  It is this jinn which whispers to our base desires and constantly tries to divert us from righteousness.

The Prophet said: “Every one of you has been assigned a companion from the jinn.  The companions asked: Even you O’ Messenger of God?  And the Prophet replied: Even me, except that God has helped me against him and he has become a Muslim.  Now he only tells me to do good” (Saheeh Muslim).

Because the Qareen is with a person all his life, it knows all that has happened to the person from the cradle to the grave.  By making contact with the Qareen, the fortune-teller is thus able to make out that it is he who knows about the person. When you do ruqyah on a possessed person and speak to the jinn, you can ask the jinn questions. For example, if you ask a question about someone by showing the jinn a picture of that person, the jinn can almost instantly get the answer to your question by first asking the subject’s Qareen.

Follower Jinn

A jinn may voluntarily follow and interfere with a human’s life for both good and bad. Bad jinn may try to ruin your life and good jinn may protect you from bad people.

  • Example of a Bad Follower Jinn
    For example, if you live in a haunted house, the jinn may feel that you are invading its space even though that’s obviously not your intention since humans can’t see jinn. Nevertheless, some jinn are evil (and dumb) enough to not care and try to scare you to leave. Even after you decide to move out, the jinn may follow you every now and then and harass you, e.g. ruin your relationships, marriage(s), work life, etc.
  • Example of a Good Follower Jinn
    • Religious People
      If you are very religious, some pious jinn may be attracted to you and follow you. You will most likely not feel they are following you and they will most likely not interfere with your life.
    • Black Magic Survivor
      If you have been a victim of black magic and an exorcist removes the jinn from you, some jinn may decide to come back to you after leaving. Some are good jinn and they may decide to follow you because they know that you may have a desire to help others who are victims of black magic.
    • Exorcist
      Exorcists who remove jinn from black magic victims can sometimes get some follower jinn. Some of the jinn that leave the patient’s body may be attracted to the exorcist because they see that the exorcist is helping others. Of course, these jinn who leave the patient’s body have become good jinn.
    • Inherited
      Sometimes, each family member of an entire family may get a good follower jinn because they inherited them from their parents. The parents may have or have had good follower jinn and the jinn may feel that they should also follow (and possibly protect) their descendants.

Jinn Statistics

During some jinn catching sessions, I asked different jinn some questions regarding statistics. According to a few jinn, as of 2016 approximately 60% of the human population is affected by black magic and/or voluntary jinn interference. The number of jinn in the world is approximately 17 times the number of humans.

Black Magic

How People First Learned Black Magic

Two angels, Harut and Marut, came down to Babylon and told people and jinn that they were sent by God as a trial. They discouraged people and jinn from learning magic from them to avoid being disbelievers. Some people and jinn still disbelieved and chose to learn magic from these angels including magic on how to separate a husband from his wife.

وَلَمَّا جَآءَهُمۡ رَسُولٌ۬ مِّنۡ عِندِ ٱللَّهِ مُصَدِّقٌ۬ لِّمَا مَعَهُمۡ نَبَذَ فَرِيقٌ۬ مِّنَ ٱلَّذِينَ أُوتُواْ ٱلۡكِتَـٰبَ ڪِتَـٰبَ ٱللَّهِ وَرَآءَ ظُهُورِهِمۡ كَأَنَّهُمۡ لَا يَعۡلَمُونَ (١٠١) وَٱتَّبَعُواْ مَا تَتۡلُواْ ٱلشَّيَـٰطِينُ عَلَىٰ مُلۡكِ سُلَيۡمَـٰنَ‌ۖ وَمَا ڪَفَرَ سُلَيۡمَـٰنُ وَلَـٰكِنَّ ٱلشَّيَـٰطِينَ كَفَرُواْ يُعَلِّمُونَ ٱلنَّاسَ ٱلسِّحۡرَ وَمَآ أُنزِلَ عَلَى ٱلۡمَلَڪَيۡنِ بِبَابِلَ هَـٰرُوتَ وَمَـٰرُوتَ‌ۚ وَمَا يُعَلِّمَانِ مِنۡ أَحَدٍ حَتَّىٰ يَقُولَآ إِنَّمَا نَحۡنُ فِتۡنَةٌ۬ فَلَا تَكۡفُرۡ‌ۖ فَيَتَعَلَّمُونَ مِنۡهُمَا مَا يُفَرِّقُونَ بِهِۦ بَيۡنَ ٱلۡمَرۡءِ وَزَوۡجِهِۦ‌ۚ وَمَا هُم بِضَآرِّينَ بِهِۦ مِنۡ أَحَدٍ إِلَّا بِإِذۡنِ ٱللَّهِ‌ۚ وَيَتَعَلَّمُونَ مَا يَضُرُّهُمۡ وَلَا يَنفَعُهُمۡ‌ۚ وَلَقَدۡ عَلِمُواْ لَمَنِ ٱشۡتَرَٮٰهُ مَا لَهُ ۥ فِى ٱلۡأَخِرَةِ مِنۡ خَلَـٰقٍ۬‌ۚ وَلَبِئۡسَ مَا شَرَوۡاْ بِهِۦۤ أَنفُسَهُمۡ‌ۚ لَوۡ ڪَانُواْ يَعۡلَمُونَ (١٠٢

And when there came to them a Messenger from Allâh (i.e. Muhammad Peace be upon him ) confirming what was with them, a party of those who were given the Scripture threw away the Book of Allâh behind their backs as if they did not know! (101) They followed what the Shayâtin (devils) gave out (falsely of the magic) in the lifetime of Sulaimân (Solomon). Sulaimân did not disbelieve, but the Shayâtin (devils) disbelieved, teaching men magic and such things that came down at Babylon to the two (angels,) Hârût and Mârût, but neither of these two angels taught anyone (such things) till they had said, “We are only for trial, so disbelieve not (by learning this magic from us).” And from these (angels) people learn that by which they cause separation between man and his wife, but they could not thus harm anyone except by Allâh’s Leave. And they learn that which harms them and profits them not. And indeed they knew that the buyers of it (magic) would have no share in the Hereafter. And how bad indeed was that for which they sold their ownselves, if they but knew. (102)

Surat Al-Baqarah (The Cow) 2 – (101-102)

Signs of a Black Magic Practitioner

Magicians often ask for or do certain things in order for them to perform their magic to either hurt people or to cure them. Using black magic to cure people from black magic is forbidden and constitutes shirk. If you know someone who does one or more of the following, they are likely a magician.

  • Ask for Mother’s Maiden Name
    A magician often needs the target victim’s mother’s full maiden name in order to perform the magic.
  • Dirty Clothes
    A magician often needs some used and/or dirty clothes of the target victim, e.g. dirty socks.
  • Sacrificial Animal
    A magician may use an animal such as a chicken and slaughter it and possibly even smear its blood over someone in order to perform magic.
  • Written Mantras
    A magician may write in any language certain words that may then be buried or put somewhere special for the black magic to work.
  • Codes and Squares
    A magician may write certain letter and numbers representing codes to call jinn. They may even write names of devils in between verses of surat Al-Faatihah or other verses.
  • Isolation
    A magician may ask you to isolate yourself in darkness in a room or a small area in a cave.
  • No Touching Water
    A magician may ask you to not touch water for a certain number of days, e.g. 40 days. At the end of the period, you will obviously be very filthy, which evil jinn like.
  • Bury Objects in Ground
    A magician may ask you to bury certain objects in the ground, e.g. in the front or back of your or someone else’s house.
  • Burn Paper
    A magician may give you a piece of paper to burn to smoke.
  • Unusual Recitation of the Quran 
    A magician may intentionally recite verses of the Quran in an incomprehensible way and against the rules of tajwid.
  • Sharing Knowledge Via Jinn
    A magician may tell you your name and the problem you are facing before you’ve even told them to him. A magician may do this to impress you so you have confidence in the magician. The magician can know this personal information about you from the jinn they work with.
  • Broken Letters
    A magician may write broken letters on a piece of paper or cloth and ask you to rub it over your body or put it in water and to drink the water. This serves as a medium to transfer a jinn into your body to possibly cure you.

Characteristics of Black Magic Practitioners

According to Sheikh Abu Ubaidah Mahir bin Shalih Alu Mubarak in his book ” Fathu Al Mughits Fie Al Sihr Wa Al Hasad Wa Massi Iblis” (1995, Riyadh), following are characteristics of magicians and sorcerers.

  • Sells himself and everything he owns to the devil
  • Charges fees and uses black magic to cure people even for people who absolutely cannot afford to pay
  • Is never scared or surprised when his master (the devil) shows up to him in any shape
  • Doesn’t give up when his jinn can’t immediately fulfill his requests
  • Tries as much as possible to perform black magic as requested by the devil and doesn’t doubt at all that his actions violate Islam and doesn’t care about the damage he is doing to his victims
  • Stubborn and will not give up his belief in the devil’s rules.
  • Believes with conviction that the devil is powerful and he obeys the devil’s orders
  • Hates all religions and tears, burns and uses their holy books in dirty places
  • Is ready to dishonor anyone or anything
  • Doesn’t use soap so that his body becomes very filthy and smelly (likewise about his clothes and living conditions)
  • Spends most of his time in isolation without socializing in society unless he gets an order from a client to do black magic on someone

As you can see, magicians must do a lot and completely surrender themselves to the devil in order to successfully perform black magic (or to get jinn to do what he wants). A magician’s level of belief and trust in the devil is greater than most victims’ belief and level of trust in Allah!

How a Magician Summons Jinn

  • Agreement between the magician and the jinn
    The magician usually starts and does various acts to summon the jinn. The jinn will then agree to serve the magician if the magician also does what the jinn wants. Jinn will not serve a magician for free. They will always want something in return.  This agreement is usually made between the magician and the chief jinn of a group of jinn. The chief jinn will then order one of its dumbest members to serve the jinn and do what the magician wants. For example, the magician may want information of things that happened in the past or cause a couple to break up or create fake love. If the jinn doesn’t obey the magician, the chief jinn will punish the dumb jinn and/or replace it with a different jinn to serve the magician. Consequently, the dumb jinn may hate the magician because it is being forced to something against its will. The dumb jinn may then hurt the magician’s wife and/or kids and cause miscarriages to prevent the magician from having kids. In general, jinn will use opportunities to hurt the magician without the magician even realizing it.
  • Swearing on the name of the jinn
    The magician will enter a dark room and light a candle. If the magician wants to cause harm, e.g. a divorce, he will place an object that has an unpleasant smell over the candle. If the magician wants to create fake love or end some black magic, he will place an object that has a pleasant smell over the candle. The magician will then read mantras containing “shirk” messages by exalting the chief jinn. When done reciting mantras, a shadow in the shape of a dog or snake or something else will appear before the magician. The magician can then order the shadow (representing the jinn) to do whatever it wants. Sometimes, the magician may not see any shadows but will hear sounds. Sometimes, the magician will tie a knot with dirty clothes that was worn by the target victim. Based on this information, we know that

    • Jinn like dark places / rooms
    • Jinn like the smell of offerings served on them that don’t have the name of Allah mentioned on them
    • Jinn like to be exalted and asked for help as this is a form of shirk
    • Jinn like dirty and filthy places
  • Ritual for the devil
    The magician will bring a bird, chicken, dove or something else as requested by the jinn.  Animals that are black are desired because jinn like the color black. The magician then slaughters the animal without mentioning Allah’s name beforehand. Sometimes, a victim of black magic that the magician may be trying to cure will smear the animal’s blood over their body. The magician will then throw the dead animal, without saying Allah’s name first, in a well or empty places were jinn are often found.  The magician then returns home and recites mantras containing messages of “shirk” and order jinn to do whatever he wants.
  • Disgracing the Quran or words of Allah
    This is the worst of the kinds of magicians and they usually have many jinn who serve them. An example of this method is as follows. The magician will place the Quran below both of his feet when sitting on a toilet in a bathroom. He’ll stomp his feet on the Quran while he’s relieving himself.  Then he’ll read mantras while in the bathroom then exit and sit in a room. He’ll then order some jinn to do whatever he wants. The evil jinn will quickly carry out his orders because the magician, in disgracing the Quran, has left Allah to become friends with the devil. In order for a magician to succeed using this method, he must commit many large sins such as having sex with someone who he’s not married to or having sex with someone of the same gender.
  • Writing verses of the Quran using something dirty
    The magician will write a chapter of the Quran using menses blood or some other dirty thing. Then, he’ll recite mantras until the jinn appears. The magician then asks the jinn to do whatever it wants.
  • Writing verses of the Quran backwards
    The magician will write a chapter of the Quran using broken or backwards letters or writing the end of a chapter in the beginning. Then, he’ll recite mantras containing messages of  “shirk” so that the jinn will come. Then, he’ll order the jinn to do whatever he wants.
  • Worshiping stars
    With the method, a magician will worships stars and monitor for the appearance of a particular star. He’ll then show his client or patient the star and read mantras to it as if he can communicate with the star. He’ll then read other mantras containing “shirk” and then he’ll make some movements to worship the star. In doing so, he is committing “shirk”. At that time, jinn will come to him and carry out his orders while the magician thinks that it’s the star that is carrying out his orders. The star, obviously, can’t carry out the magician orders, only jinn can. The magician will say that he won’t be able to cure his patient until the star appears again at a different time. There are some stars that won’t appear except once in a year. The magician and his patient would then have to wait until they see the star appear again and only then would the magician recite mantras to ask the star to cure his patient from black magic.
  • Reading via the palm of one’s hands
    In this method, the magician will bring a kid who doesn’t have wudhu (hasn’t made ablution). The magician will look at the kid’s left hand and draw a rectangular outline. Near the lines, he’ll write some magic mantras that contain elements of “shirk”. The mantras are written on all 4 lines and the drawing is placed on the kid’s palm. In the middle of rectangle he’ll put oil and some blue flowers or oil and blue ink. The magician then writes other mantras with broken letters on a piece of long rectangular paper and put that paper over the kid’s face and put a hat on the kid’s head so as to hold the paper in place. Then, the magician covers the kid’s entire body with a heavy cloth. In this situation, the kid can see the palm of his hands (due to the magic) which he normally would not be able to see because of the darkness. Then, the magician will start reciting mantras that contain a lot of “shirk” and suddenly the kid will feel as though everything is clear and he can see the drawing moving on the palm of his hand.” The magician will then ask the kid what he sees. The kid says “I see a guy in front of me.” The magician tells the kid to tell the person he sees that his master orders you to do this and that. The drawing will then move again. This method is often used to find lost objects.
  • Using dirty clothes
    With this method, the magician will ask for some dirty clothes belong to the patient like a handkerchief, hair cover, or shirt that still smells of his sweat. The magician will then tie the corner of the handkerchief and measure it the length of 4 fingers and hold the handkerchief very hard while reading with a loud voice chapter Al-Takathur or some other short chapter of the Quran. Then, he’ll recite mantras containing “shirk” and then call jinn and say “if the patient’s illness is caused by jinn, then shorten the length of this handkerchief. If the illness is due to jealousy / evil eye, then lengthen the handkerchief. If the illness is medical for human doctor to cure, then leave the handkerchief as it.” Then, the magician will measure the length of the handkerchief. If it’s very long, longer than 4 fingers, then the magician will say to the patient that he’s a victim of jealousy / evil eye. If the handkerchief is short, then the magician will say that he the patient is possessed. If the handkerchief doesn’t change in length, then the magician will tell the patient to go see a medical doctor.

Types of Black Magic

Almost all black magic cases are unique even among cases within the same category. For example, someone who is a victim of “fake love” magic will usually immediately fall in love and want to marry the person doing the magic. Some victims immediately realize that they were bewitched, others don’t realize it at all, and some will refuse to believe they are bewitched if people around them tell them that they are bewitched. This latter group would usually say that the love is pure and real when it is not even close to that. Some other victims will experience other issues like headaches, shaking, having weird movements, can’t concentrate, pain in certain area, possession, anger, etc. Following are different categories of black magic.

  • Magic causing specific feelings
    e.g. to cause love or hatred, fear or courage, sickness, to make one feel like their being talked about or accompanied by someone or visited by someone or that someone is watching them.
  • Magic causing supernatural strength
    Generally, people seek this magic for self protection.  With it, they can look at a gecko on a wall and cause it to fall, remotely punch someone, be immune from sharp weapons, be immune from being burned with fire, be immune from poisonous snakes or insects, be able to walk on water, be able to move objects without touching them, be able to be appear hidden from others without actually being hidden.
  • Magic causing visual effects
    This magic is like being able to do magic tricks without needing to have a fast hand or clever mechanisms. The magicians of Pharoah back in the day used to do this. As mentioned in the Quran, they’d throw their sticks while reciting mantras and surrounding people would see the sticks as moving snakes.
  • Magic causing physical body pain
    For example, your feet may always feel like ants are crawling in it (tingling feet), you keep scratching your head without reason, you never feel full even though you eat a lot, you constantly pee or pass gas after making ablution or when praying, you feel weak and sleepy and lazy when you hear the adhaan. You always feel sleepy during the day despite having enough sleep, you are immune to laxative / calming medicine or blood pressure medicine. Some people get magic that inteferes with their memory causing them to seem insane. One college student lost his memory and fainted for a day four times in eight years.
  • Magic causing serious, weird, and inexplicable illnesses
    e.g. a feeling of being stabbed in the stomach, bloody stood without any internal bleeding, difficulty breathing as if being choked or strangled, weak legs, unusual skin problems, feeling hot as if being burned for years, sudden cuts and bleeding without reason, or a sickness that moves around in the body.
  • Magic causing hatred and divorce
  • Magic to predict the future
    e.g. to find something lost, to steal something, to cause something to be lost, etc.

Becoming a Magician

Becoming a magician who practices black magic requires partnering with and selling your soul to the devil. We are not magicians but based on our knowledge, magicians must perform various sinful acts such as desecrating the Quran, torturing and killing animals and humans, and various other disgusting acts.

Something of the Victim

If the person who does black magic to you is a magician himself and knows how to do black magic, then he can do it himself. Otherwise, he would find a magician and pay him to do black magic on you. He would normally get something from you, e.g.  a strand of hair, a photo, dirty clothes, etc, to give to the magician and provide the magician with your details, e.g. name, mother’s maiden name, etc.

According to Islam, it is the worst sin and one Allah does not forgive, i.e. doing black magic will guarantee you go straight to Hell to abide therein forever. You’ve been warned!

Black Magic Symbols

After paying the magician, the magician will make something that represents the black magic. This “thing” can take on various forms, e.g. an annotated photo, a doll with needles in it, a knot, a padlock, some writing on a piece of paper, a substance to be eaten, etc. This “thing” is the symbol representing the black magic and is placed somewhere, e.g. in a grave, a well, a tree, the ocean, buried underground, mixed in with some food or a drink for the victim to eat or drink, in your pillow, under your bed, etc.

Accompanying Jinn

The magician will often send some jinn to guard the black magic and/or to possess you. Usually multiple jinn ranging from a few to literally thousands are living inside your body. One jinn is the chief or leader jinn. Together, they control you by making your think, see, smell, hear, etc things that accomplish the goal of the black magic. For example, if the goal of the black magic is to make you attracted to someone you actually aren’t attracted to, the jinn will make you see that person in a different and very attractive light thereby making you attracted to that person. If the goal is to make you divorce someone, the jinn may make you smell your spouse’s breath as if it smelled like garbage. There are many things black magic and jinn can do to influence you and make you do something to achieve their goal including causing sickness and death.

Jinn Life and Interference

Jinn possessing you may be of any religion. Some are even Muslim jinn who are forced and enslaved by other jinn or the magician to possess the target victims. Jinn are like humans. There are good and bad jinn, they marry and reproduce,  they eat and drink, they work and sleep, etc. They, too, can influence humans on their own without black magic. Though less common, some jinn will, on their own, interfere with a human’s life out of revenge or love. For example, if a jinn chooses an abandoned house or apartment as its dwelling place and someone decides to move in, the jinn may consider you trespassing and haunt you by making your life miserable. A jinn may also be attracted to a human and possess the human and consider the human it’s spouse. The human would not know what’s going on but he may also find that he could never get married because the jinn would block him from doing so.

Lover Jinn

When a magician sends black magic with jinn to a target victim, it is common for one or more of the jinn to fall in love with the target victim. These jinn are called “lover jinn”. As such, even though the jinn was sent because of the black magic, even if the black magic is removed and the jinn is forced to leave, the jinn may return because it has its own agenda as it wants to be with target victim regardless of the black magic. Consequently, the lover jinn may do whatever it takes so that the human is for it alone, e.g. prevent the human from marrying, constantly cause miscarriages (if the human is already married), cause fighting or a divorce between the couple (if the target is married), etc. It is even possible to for the lover jinn to have sex with the human via the human’s dreams.

Instantaneous Results

When black magic is done, the effects can be instant. For example, if the goal of black magic is to make one get a divorce, the victim and / or their spouse will immediately be affected in ways that will make them want to get a divorce, e.g. they will see each other as ugly, they will have big arguments over the pettiest of things, they will hate being around each other. Eventually, the relationship will deteriorate and they will get a divorce at which time the goal of the black magic will be accomplished. With black magic, it is very common for people’s opinions to change literally overnight, e.g. you may be excited to marry someone and the very next day, you break up with the person. Unusual, inexplicable and abrupt behavior like this is usually caused by black magic.

Repeated Magic and Fighting Back

In some cases, if you get cured of black magic, the magician may find out and renew or redo the black magic. This can happen over and over again. In this case, it is recommended that you punish the magician and whoever ordered the black magic so that they stop once and for all.
