Blaming black magic for getting involved in zina

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: If a person is suffering from Black Magic which increases his sexual desire and he got involved in adultery. Is it a punishment from Allah to get involved in sins or a hard test from Allah although the person’s imaan is weak?


A: This is a crime and every crime is punishable. One cannot say that black magic had prompted him to steal or murder and expect himself to be acquitted.

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