Spiritual experiences

Q: I need a sure and definite answer to this question. Actually, when I close my eyes and concentrate, I can see things and visit places and communicate with the jinns. I also get feeling when something bad will happen. Some months ago, my sister was very sick and I got the feeling that it was a sorcery. My mom knew a person which also know these things, so she called him and as I concentrate, I could describe the person who had done the sorcery well and the person which my mom called communicated with him through me as intermediate asking the shaitaan or jinn where he comes from etc. Sometimes, they take my body and I talk things beyond my comprehension. Finally, the person, through recitation of Quran, the jinn was forced to break the condition of the sorcery like coconut, blood and lemons etc. and some were burnt and some converted to Islam. I could see them burning and becoming ashes and some converted to Islam and go to mecca. My sister was then recovered fully from the disease. I want to know if this is allowed to use the inner eye or is it and how is it shirk? The power is in me but I don’t know if I can make use of them. I have read about roqya to recover from black magic but the black magic is very complicated and powerful. Sometimes, the jinns or shaitaan have protection and they does not get affected when reciting quran. If it is not allowed to use the concentration or inner eyes to break the black magic’s work, how can we combat it fully?


A: Don’t pay attention to all this. This experience, though it may be true at times, but it is not a sign of gaining proximity with Allah, nor did Allah or Nabi (sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) encourage us to entertain these.

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