Doing magic on oneself

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: I have a question about magic and attempting to use it or even having another black magician do certain magic on myself. I know this is a form of shirk and engaging in magic takes a person outside the fold of Islam. Does this mean I am no longer a Muslim and is it something that can be forgiven? What do I need to do? 


A: Don’t even think of such a heinous wrong that will take you out of Islam. What guarantee have you got that you will come back safely to Islam.

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