Black magic in Muslim countries
Muslim countries following the Islamic religion also practice black magic. The Islamic religion is not so old but is widely spread worldwide, from those of Indian Muslims to those of Bangladeshi Muslims, Bihari Muslims, or Muslims in Arabic countries. We can find people following Islamic religion all around the globe, and hence black magic is practiced vary widely within this community.
Based on different countries, the practice of black magic also differs. I would try to cover the different types of Islamic black magic used or practiced worldwide. Mostly, all black magic practiced can be found in Arabic countries or Asian countries where the population of Muslims is dense compared to other parts of the world.
One observation seen in practicing black magic in Islamic countries or Muslim countries is the use of black magic spells to harm an opponent. Though black magic is also used for healing, lifting the curse, reliving from pain, or the so-called love and charm effects to lure someone or get an ex-back. It has also been observed that the use of talismans, water from the mosque (also known as holy water), and the enchanting of verses from the holy book ‘QURAN’ are practiced.
The truth – also written in QURAN says that those who practice black magic are committing sin and that one should not hamper their friends, neighbors, siblings or any other family members, but since Muslims are very orthodox people and skeptic on many things and being superstitious, the practice of black magic prevails in Islamic countries to a great extent.
People like ‘pir baba’ and ‘fakir’ exist, who would claim to be ALLAH’s people and that they have the power to cast black magic spell takes in the confidence of such superstitious Muslims and ask for the heavy amount to get them rid of curses, or help them become rich or healthy. It is believed that people in their own families are more likely to attack family members with black magic spells than outsiders. Jealousy, hatred is some of the main reasons why Muslims are practicing black magic.
In most of the Islamic and Gulf countries like Saudi Arabia, Lebanon, practice of witchcraft is banned, and anyone found practicing black magic is sentenced to death or lifetime imprisonment. Despite tight laws in Middle East countries or gulf countries still, the practice of sorcery exists.
Another reason for Islamic countries or Muslims practicing black magic is the illiteracy count. Since many Muslims are illiterate and refugees, they do not even understand their holy book reading and fall into the trap of fake sorcerers, who are always hunting for such victims to earn money. This kind of spell casters would pretend that they can capture JINN and then help the victim to acquire or get result of any of his / her desire which would be performed by the JINN.
In some Islamic black magic practices, you would also find the use of QURAN, which actually prohibits the use of black magic. For example – Istikhara, is a kind of Islamic black magic where the person has to visit a Moulana (Holy Priest) who would recite verses of QURAN (verse 6:59) then offers salam (greetings) to Prophet Muhammad, turns his face towards the sky and then answers questions asked by the person or candidate and provides the person with remedies as well.
Another widely used black magic in Muslim countries is the SURA YA SIN. The believer reads sura, and as per need, different sura represents different requirement. For example, sura 48 is read for victory, sura 114 is read for humankind, and sura 72 is read for capturing or taking help from jinn and spirits. It is also believed that a person can write these suras (as and when required) on a piece of paper, wear it by putting it in an amulet or talisman, or wash the paper with water and drink the water.
In some Islamic or Muslim countries, sorcerers practicing black magic are also known as saahir. It is believed that they practice Islamic black magic known as sihr.
