Though Voodoo witchcraft had originated in Africa but at present, it has spread far and wide. It is considered to be the most lethal form of magic through which a victim can be harmed or killed from a distance.
For those who practice this deadly kind of witchcraft, there are two serious consequences awaiting them-one in their worldly life and the other one in the life hereafter.
Let us discuss both of them one by one. As far as the first worldly consequence is concerned there is a three-fold law in the occult principles. This law states that whatever negative forces which are emitted (by those who practice witchcraft) will boomerang towards them, unless they are absorbed by the victim towards whom they are directed. In other words, many Voodoo spells can get reversed against the magicians themselves. When the Voodoo practitioners try to command the evil forces for bringing harm to the victim, they also make themselves vulnerable to psychic attacks.
Now let us come to the second and the more serious consequence- the eternal one. For those who use the tool of Voodoo magic to make a fast quick buck in this world, all that lies in the world hereafter is ignominy and punishment. Black magic is considered to be one of the greater sins and those who indulge in such evil practices in this world put their eternal life at sake.
Here are some of the relevant Quranic verses and ahadith which prove that evil phenomenon such as Voodoo witchcraft; black magic, divination etc are strictly forbidden in Islam.
Allah (swt) says in the Holy Quran:
“…and the magician will never succeed, no matter whatever amount (of skill) he may attain”. (TMQ-20:69)
“They followed what the devils gave out (falsely of the magic) in the lifetime of Sulaiman. Sulaiman did not disbelieve but the devils disbelieved, teaching men magic and such things that came down at Babylon to the two angels, Harut and Marut, but neither of the two (angels) taught anyone (such things) till they said, ‘We are only for trial, so disbelieve not (by learning the magic from us)". And from these (angels) people learn that by which they cause separation between man and his wife, but they could not harm anyone except by Allah’s Leave. And they learn that which harms them and profits them not. And indeed they knew that the buyers of it (magic) would have no share in the Hereafter. And how bad indeed was that for which they sold their own self, if they but knew”. (TMQ-2:102)
Prophet Mohammad (pbuh) said, ‘Whoever blows on knots practices magic, and whosoever practices magic is a mushrik (polytheist) (reported by At-Tabarani)
Prophet Mohammad (pbuh) said, ‘He is not one of us who practices witchcraft or has it done for him’.
Prophet Mohammad (pbuh) said “Avoid the seven sins which doom a person to Hell. They asked, ‘What are they? He replied, ‘Associating anything inn worship to Allah (shirk); witchcraft..”
Therefore, succumbing to devil’s temptations and indulging in Voodoo magic can prove to be disastrous for the practitioners as well as for those who get it done by hiring them.
