What to the Ulama say regarding attending magic shows?

Answer:

In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

 

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

Magic is impermissible.[i] To happily attend gatherings where the disobedience of Allah is taking place is a form of disobedience.  Hence, it will be sinful to attend such gatherings.[ii]

And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best

[i] وفي الجوهرة

وَمِنْ الْكَبَائِرِ السِّحْرُ (ص 231 مير محمد كتب خانه)

 

وفي رد المحتار

السِّحْرُ حَرَامٌ بِلَا خِلَافٍ بَيْنَ أَهْلِ الْعِلْمِ، وَاعْتِقَادُ إبَاحَتِهِ كُفْرٌ (4/240 أيج أيم سعيد)

 

[ii] وفي البدائع

وَلَا عَدَالَةَ لِمَنْ يَحْضُرُ مَجْلِسَ الشُّرْبِ وَيَجْلِسُ بَيْنَهُمْ، وَإِنْ كَانَ لَا يَشْرَبُ؛ لِأَنَّ حُضُورَهُ مَجْلِسَ الْفِسْقِ فِسْقٌ.(6/269 دار الكتب العلمية)
