Hypnosis in Islam: Permissible or Forbidden?

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: Is hypnosis allowed in Islam? Scientists says that it is a therapy to get rid of fear, anxiety and stress etc. while some people say that some jinns are involved with it. I want to try it but I am not sure whether it is allowed or not.


A: We are not very well acquainted with this art. We are made to understand that some of these practices could lead to shirk. Hence it is best to refrain from this.

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