Assalamu alaikum, I was wondering if there is any form of black magic which can take over someone and make them go out and have sexual intercourse with people without them realising, as I know someone claiming this so i wanted to ask you if this is true or not?  



The general sign of a person suffering from black magic is that his or her behaviour becomes strange. This strangeness in behaviour could be in terms of speaking or acting in a bizarre manner, or arguing with the spouse on trivial and petty issues.  Like the sorcerers of Babylon who learnt magic to separate a husband from his wife as mentioned in the Holy Qur’an. (Surah Baqarah v.102)

Regarding your question, it may be possible that the unwillingness of the husband to have sexual intercourse could be because of black magic. It is also possible that the husband is depressed and is not in the mood of having sex.

The best way to protect oneself from black magic is by offering the five daily prayers and performing good deeds. Also make a habit of reciting Surah Falaq and Surah Naas. Imam Malik raḥimahullāh (may Allāh have mercy upon him) narrates from Saaidah Aisha raḍyAllāhu 'anha (may Allāh be pleased with her) that ‘’Whenever the Prophet of Allah ṣallallāhu 'alayhi wa sallam (peace and blessings of Allāh be upon him) suffered from an ailment, he would recite the Muwadhatain (Surah Falaq and Surah Naas), blow over his hands and then wipe his whole body with those hands.  When this pain became severe on his deathbed, I would recite the Muwadhatain, blow over his hands, and then he wipes them over himself because my hands could not be a fitting substitute for his blessed hands.’’

One can also use supplicated oil by massaging the body twice everyday where the pain is experienced or regarding your question, drink supplicated water to protect yourself from the evil eye.

Only Allah Knows Best
