Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: I have some questions that have been effecting my life for a long time.

1. Unfortunately I made a mistake of watching palmistry videos on youtube and saw some bad signs on my hand. I know its haram but I’ve made this mistake. I know no one in the heavens or on earth knows what is the unseen but according to the Hadeeth, the jinn travel to the lowest heaven and tell some of the information to the fortune tellers. I’m afraid that the fortune teller might have made some connections with jinn and what she told was true?  

2. I saw my sister’s hand and I’m afraid that I might have also made some connection with a jinn and what I saw would become true.

3. If Allah Ta’ala has made these lines on our hands then they might have a purpose and meaning… does that mean that these lines do have a meaning but no one has the knowledge about them?

4. Please kindly give a satisfactory answer if i might have somehow through possession or accident made a connection? Is this possible? I have heard that we can make connections through sacrilegious acts? What are those acts?

5. I read somewhere that there are still some people who resemble to the fortune tellers from the time of ignorance. Is it possible that the palmist I saw on youtube had some knowledge and resembled one of them?

6. I also read somewhere that the predictions sometimes come true that is because the palmist gets information from the jinn. Is that still possible beacuse only Hazrat Suleman (alaihis salaam) had such powers to control jinn

7. I’ve asked many people and they said that one cannot be sure if some connection with a jinn is made. Is it true?


A: These are all suspicions and doubts. Don’t pay attention to it. Trust in Allah and ignore all these doubts.

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