Practising black magic

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: My elder brother is involved in a relationship with a girl and my parents and family are completely against his views. The girl is divorced and now she is in a relationship with my brother. Girl is 7 years elder to my brother! My brother is completely out of his mind and he even wants to go againt my parents and willing to marry her and planning for nikaah with her! My parents completely tried to convince him but its going to be useless! There is nothing left to convince him now. So in this situation if we take the help of black magic so will it be haraam? Like completely make that girl to forget my brother or completely making my brother to forget her by the help of black magic so will it be haraam? Because in any manner we don’t want to commit anything which is haraam! But other than that there is no other way left as we are loosing him. He agrees to go againt my parents and wants to make nikaah with that girl!


A: Refrain from doing black magic as this has been declared haraam and forbidden in Islam.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
