Believing that black magic will spoil one’s future

Q: I have an elder sister. With the grace of Allah Ta’ala she is a doctor by profession but unfortunately there is no marriage proposal for her. May I kindly request you to check is there any sort of hindrance or black magic on her marriage proposals?


A: In times of hardship and difficulty one should turn to Allah Ta’ala. Believing that black magic will spoil one’s future is haraam and nothing but superstition. All conditions ultimately come from Allah Ta’ala. A believer should place his reliance and trust in Allah Ta’ala. The more a person turns to Allah Ta’ala, the more he will find happiness and an exit from all his problems. For Allah Ta’ala alone is the controller of all affairs. Turning to Allah Ta’ala means that one refrains from sins and whatever leads to the displeasure of Allah Ta’ala. Similarly one should adhere to the sunnat of Rasulullah (Salallahu Alaihi Wasallam) in all aspects of life. After the five daily salaah make it a habit to recite aayatul kursi and the four Quls (i.e. Qul yaa ayyuhal kaafiroon, Qul huwallahu ahad, Qul a’oozu birabbil falaq, Qul a’oozu birabbi naas.)  Similarly before sleeping recite these surahs and blow upon your body. Commence taleem of fazaail aamaal and fazaail sadaqaat everyday in your home and take out some time everyday where you engage in collective duaa, zikr and recite durood upon Nabi (Salallahu Alaihi Wasallam). May Allah Ta’ala assist you and your family and bless you with happiness.

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