Question on Sihr (Black Magic)

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Mahmoodiyah


I have committed shirk with full knowledge in 1998/1999. I used the service of a person who did black magic against someone I hated. We went to the cemetery and stayed therein for a whole day doing all sorts of things, including, but not limited to, slaughtering of various animals and convoking “Kali”, a supposedly evil spirit. We finally buried objects belonging to the person at the cemetery. Now I live overseas and I have changed a lot since I joined the effort of Da’wah more than a year ago. I sincerely regret this evil act of mine and I don’t know what to do.

Will Allah forgive me?

What can I do to save that person against this magic? Do I have to ring that person to inform? Please help me I am getting desperate because I am so worried now. Jazakallah!




Black Magic is an extremely evil act. One should refrain from it. If you committed Shirk in the process of black magic you should renew your Imam and Nikah.  If any financial or physical harm was caused to the victim he should be compensated for the loss done.  One should also seek the pardon of the victim because Allah will only pardon you if the victim pardons you himself. In order for you to assist that person, you should contact a reliable and appropriate person so that he may assist in removing the evil effects of the black magic.
