Q: I went to a haafiz who is very well known to be able to find out if anyone is possessed. I have been having problems with my wife for a long time and been separated for around nine months. He had asked for a picture of me and my wife which I sent. He has said to me by looking at the picture all the things that my wife has been doing and all the things that have been happening in my marriage. He also knew what my wife had done to me as in mentally draining he also said a few thing about my mother in-law trying to break my marriage which was also right. He has advised me to leave her as he only sees destruction for me as my wife will never change and that her mother has corrupted her. I am not sure what to make of this. Should I follow what he is saying or not? He is very well known to be accurate and I believe its called muraqaba that is what he may have done but he knew a lot of information about my marriage by just looking at my and my wife’s photos and our names and address. I need help as I am not sure what to do. Should I leave my wife or not?
A: You do not have to go with this type of meditation. The meditation can be influenced by shaytaan and by his own personal thoughts.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
