Some people do not think twice before consulting a black magic practitioner if they happen to face a problem in life. If a person falls sick then he or she may consult a doctor. Likewise, if a person has a problem regarding marriage, career, love etc then they ought to seek the help of a pious spiritual healer who can guide them in an Islamic way. Unfortunately, people throng the black magic practitioners and tantriks, instead. Consequently, they end up squandering their hard-earned wealth and are taken for a ride by fraudsters. Yet, they do not learn from their mistakes and get duped again and again.
What could be the possible reason/s why people run after such Voodoo magic practitioners instead of the taking help from genuine, Raaqi or spiritual healers?
First of all it is the feeling of vengeance which incites the people into taking this drastic step. After all, we know that visiting such evil people such as Voodoo magic practitioners or tantriks is strictly prohibited in Islam. Yet many amongst us do not pay heed to the Islamic rulings and go to such people. The feeling of vengeance can drive anyone insane and such people can surely visit a Voodoo magic practitioner who will readily cast a revenge spell to make a fast buck. A Voodoo magic practitioner cannot be expected to teach his clients the virtue of forgiveness. Neither will he preach before his clients about the sin involved in using a revenge spell. According to a hadith, Prophet Mohammad (pbuh) said, ‘He is not one of us who practices witchcraft or has it done for him’. If such a vengeful person happens to consult a pious, spiritual healer then undoubtedly the latter will ask him to leave his matter to Allah (swt) and he will tell him about the virtues of patience. According to a hadith, Prophet Mohammad (pbuh) said, “Whosever is patient in calamities, Allah gives him three hundred status, whosever is patient in obedience to Allah, will get six hundred status, whosoever is patient in desisting for evil deeds will get hundred status”. Asking a Voodoo magic practitioner to cast a revenge spell, on an enemy too, will be considered to be an sin because sorcery is totally prohibited in Islam.
Secondly, it is the feeling of envy which leads certain people to Voodoo magic practitioners. When people cannot bear to see someone happier and prosperous then them, then they try to destroy their happiness through black magic spells. These practitioners readily cast the magic spells for money. However, Prophet Mohammad (pbuh) had said, ‘Iman and hasad (envy) do not gather together in the heart of a slave (of Allah).’ [Hadith]. Therefore, a pious spiritual healer will never encourage a person who wishes to destroy someone on the grounds of envy and jealousy.
Some people try to cast love spells and they may even try to con someone for marriage through Voodoo magic. A pious spiritual healer will never take such short cuts and at the most he may provide a solution with the help of certain Quranic verses.
So basically it is evil intentions which can make a person seek the help of Voodoo magic practitioners or tantriks. Otherwise evil deeds such as captivating someone’s mind to make the person a puppet in one’s hands or blocking someone’s marriage/career prospects through black magic are amongst the major sins or Gunah-e-Kabeera.
