Envy & Masha Allah

The evil eye is usually caused by envy. For example, if you just bought a nice, new car or you got a new, high-paying job, and you tell someone, e.g. your friends, about it, they may envy you and inadvertently give you the evil eye. They may also become jealous and do black magic on you. Therefore, it is advisable not to brag about and show off anything you think others may be envious of. Naturally, people around you will find out what’s going on in your life whether you tell them or not. Therefore, if you do tell them anything or they discover something good has happened to you, tell them to say “masha Allah” which means “Allah has willed it.” This explains why you hear people say “masha Allah” very often in Islamic countries.

Recite or Listen to the Quran

Unfortunately, the regular five daily prayers do not prevent black magic from affecting you. Remember! Even the prophet, Muhammad, (pbuh), was affected by black magic and you obviously aren’t better than him. While the 5 daily prayers can help reduce the effect of black magic, it is recommended to do the following as well.

  • Recite Ayat Al-Kursi (The Verse of the Throne)
    • whenever you enter or leave your home
    • after the five daily prayers
    • before going to sleep
  • Recite Surat Al-Ikhlas, An-Naas, and Al-Falaq after the five daily prayers
  • Recite the last two verses of Surat Al-Baqarah at night
  • Read or listen to Surat Al-Baqarah regularly
    “Indeed, Satan flees from the house in which Surah Al-Baqarah (the 2nd chapter of the Quran) is recited.” (Al-Tirmidhi)


If you move into a new house or apartment, it’s not uncommon for there to be jinn living there. If you’re unlucky, the jinn may consider you trespassing, make you leave by either scaring you or causing something to happen that would make you leave, e.g. job loss, etc. In extreme cases, the jinn may even haunt you even after you’ve left. To cleanse your home from jinn, recite Surat Al-Baqara over water and use that to mop the floor and spray the walls.

Prenuptial Agreement

The number one result of black magic is divorce. If you plan on getting married, make a prenuptial agreement and have your future spouse sign it in front of a lawyer who represents them. Islamic divorce law is simple. Non-Islamic divorce law, especially in California, while may have been designed in good faith, can easily be abused. Make sure the other party signs it in front of a lawyer. Apparently, if they don’t do that, they could just say they didn’t know what they were signing or lie and say they were forced. Ridiculous. I know. But apparently that’s a valid argument. While both of you may have good intentions entering into the marriage, black magic and jinn can mess you up and turn a simple divorce into a huge waste of time and money for one or both of you.

Pre-birth and Early Childhood Ruqyah

Since black magic, whether targeting a pregnant person or the fetus directly, can result in mentally-retarded children at birth or children with special needs, e.g. autism, it is advisable to do ruqyah during pregnancy and shortly after giving birth, even if just as a precautionary measure and even if you have no suspicion of black magic. The sooner a child can be treated, the easier they could get cured.

Regular Ruqyah Checkups

Just like you regularly go to a medical doctor to get a checkup, it is advisable to also regularly, e.g. once a year, go to a raaqi to get checked for any possible influence from black magic, jinn, and the evil eye. You may also do ruqyah on yourself, if you can.

Learn About Ruqyah

Black magic, jinn attacks, and the evil eye are invisible problems that have very visible or noticeable consequences. That makes detection much more difficult. It is highly recommended that you learn about ruqyah to help in detecting the symptoms and acting on potential cases.
