Accusing Someone of Black Magic

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Askmufti.co.za

Q: I have been accused by my husband’s aunt that I performed black magic. She said that under a certain Khomeni’s fatwa it is permissible to speak to the jinn and ask for self defense against whoever in the family is performing black magic. I have never done anything like that and I fear Allah. I am being accused wrongfully. Can you please verify which fatwa allows such calling of such things? Indeed I believe it’s haram and it is destroying my family.

A: The so-called Fatwa of Khomeini is false and baseless. Khomeini was a Shiah so his fatwas are of no significance. It is haraam to accuse someone of black-magic and it is also haraam to use jinn to find out who did the black-magic. Even if one communicates with the Jinn, they will lie because such Jinn are also evil. One cannot accept the word of a jinn, nor can one accept the word of someone who claims to talk to the unseen and goes about blaming people falsely.
