Nullifies of Islaam: Sihr (magic or witchcraft)


Sihr (magic or witchcraft)

Whoever does that or approves of it is a disbeliever. The evidence for that is the verse in which Allaah, may He be exalted, says (interpretation of the meaning):

“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)’” [Al-Baqarah 2:102].

With regard to this nullifier of Islaam, there is no scholarly consensus on all forms of it.

So if the practitioner of witchcraft does something that constitutes kufr (disbelief), such as disrespectfully handling a copy of the Qur’aan, or prostrating to the devils, and the like, then he is a disbeliever according to scholarly consensus.

But if he does not do any such things, then most of the scholars are of the view that he is also a disbeliever just because of his practising magic or witchcraft.

May Almighty Allaah let’s die as Muslims
