Treatment of Black Magic

Feb 16, 2016 at 6:59 am
Magic Matters of Unseen
Abu Musa

In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful

In Islam, we have cure for every illness. Black magic is one of the worst forms of illnesses that has destroyed many lives.There are two types of treatment (ruqya) for black magic.

  1. Ruqya prescribed by shariya’
  2. Ruqya not allowed in shariya’

We will discuss the former type (i.e, prescribed by shariya’). Note: This method also applies to Jinn possession (for any reason, whether it be out of love, animosity, revenge etc) and evil eye (al-`ayin)

Reason of Affliction

When person is already under effect of black magic we have several cures; but before going in to cure let us clarify some points ── no one can harm anyone without permission of Allāh as Allāh has told us

وَما هُم بِضارّينَ بِهِ مِن أَحَدٍ إِلّا بِإِذنِ اللَّهِ

… But they do not harm anyone through it (magic) except by permission of Allāh … [2:102]

And Allāh allows this harm for one of the following reasons:

Do not despair from mercy of Allāh and continue making du’ā’ and Allāh will cure you just as He cures everyone else. We are creation of Allāh and as long as we are putting our trust on Him, He will not leave us alone.

Narrated Abu Huraira:
Allāh’s Apostle said, “Allāh said, ‘I am to my slave as he thinks of Me, (i.e. I am able to do for him what he thinks I can do for him).’ – al-Bukhari 1


Before you start a session for treatment, do the following:

What to Expect

Qur’ān is the word of Allāh and shaytaan cannot stand it’s recitation. You will see one of the following effects:

Remember, you should not fear the jinn as they will try to make you fear. Before starting please take some time to read our post on jinn

Important Points


Reciting Qur’ān

These are ayahs of Qur’ān that you will read on patient’s right ear in loud voice. We will list them here by numbers (and names) – but names may be different in your area (e.g, Surah al-Israa is called Surah Bani Israeel in Indo-Pak, but both are Surah #17 ── please note that names of surahs are not revealed so it does not matter as long as you are understanding which Surah are we referring to)

Make following du’ā’s

أَذْهِبِ الْبَاسَ رَبَّ النَّاسِ، اشْفِ وَأَنْتَ الشَّافِي لاَ شِفَاءَ إِلاَّ شِفَاؤُكَ، شِفَاءً لاَ يُغَادِرُ سَقَمًا

Take away the disease, O the Lord of the people! Cure him as You are the One Who cures. There is no cure but Yours, a cure that leaves no disease. – al-Bukhari 3

بِاسْمِ اللَّهِ أَرْقِيكَ مِنْ كُلِّ شَىْءٍ يُؤْذِيكَ مِنْ شَرِّ كُلِّ نَفْسٍ أَوْ عَيْنِ حَاسِدٍ اللَّهُ يَشْفِيكَ بِاسْمِ اللَّهِ أَرْقِيكَ

In the name of Allāh I exercise you from everything and safeguard you from every evil that may harm you and from the eye of a jealous one. Allāh would cure you and I invoke the name of Allāh for you. – Muslim 4

Other Methods

Following are methods also proven from righteous predecessors

Ruqya Water

Lote Tree Leaves

Arabic name: Sidr (سدر)

Scientific name: Zizyphus Spina-Christi

This is very effective treatment by Allāh’s permission and has been recommended by Sheikh Ibn Baaz 5

Do it everyday, it’s the best. If you can’t do it daily, do every every third day. If you can’t do it, do this at least once a week ── Try to make it on Friday (optional) and make du’ā’ on Friday between ‘Asr and Maghrib

Narrated Abu Huraira:

Allāh’s Apostle (Peace be upon him) talked about Friday and said, “There is an hour (opportune time) on Friday and if a Muslim gets it while praying and asks something from Allāh, then Allāh will definitely meet his demand.” And he (the Prophet) pointed out the shortness of that time with his hands. – al-Bukhari 6


Zam Zam

Zam Zam is for anything it’s used for, let patient drink zam zam with intension of seeking cure through it having the hadīth in mind (and have clear intention ── cure comes from Allāh)
Prophet is reported to have said:

The water of Zamzam is for whatever it is drunk for. – Ibn Majah 7

Ibn al-Qayyim said:

Myself and others tried seeking healing with Zamzam water and saw wondrous things. I sought healing with it from a number of illnesses, and I was healed by the permission of Allaah. I saw someone who nourished himself with it for a number of days, half a month or more, and he did not feel hunger; he performed Tawaaf along with the other people just as they did. And he told me that he consumed nothing but Zamzam water for forty days and he had the strength to have intercourse with his wife, to fast and to perform Tawaaf numerous times. – Zaad al-Ma’ad 8

Black seed

Make use of black seed as it’s authentically been reported to have healing in it (by the permission of Allāh)

Narrated Abu Huraira:

I heard Allāh’s Apostle saying, “There is healing in black cumin for all diseases except death.” – al-Bukhari 9 & Muslim 10 11


You can use senna leaves to seek cure as Allāh’s messenger said

Ibrahim bin Abu ‘Ablah said:

“I heard Abu Ubayy bin Umm Haram, who had prayed with the Messenger of Allāh facing both the Qiblah, saying: ‘I heard the Messenger of Allāh (Peace be upon him) say: “You should use senna and the Sannut, for in them there is healing for every disease, except the Sam.” It was said: “O Messenger of Allāh, what is the Sam?” He said: “Death.” – Ibn Majah 12

Olive Oil


Allāh said about honey:

فِيهِ شِفَآءٌ لِّلنَّاسِ

in which there is healing for people – [16:69]

Ibn al-Qayyim said regarding this ayah:

The words “healing from every disease” are like the verse in which Allāh, may He be exalted, says (interpretation of the meaning): “Destroying everything by the Command of its Lord” [al-Ahqaaf 46:25]. That is, it (the storm or wind referred to in the previous verse) destroyed everything that could be destroyed, and the like. – Zaad al-Ma’ad  14

Please note that use of honey is subject to medical condition of the patient. If patient is diabetic you should avoid use of honey.

Conversation with Jinn

As we said before, as a result of above treatment you may come across jinn who finally reveals himself and ask you “what do you want” so you can ask him 5 questions and DO NOT ENGAGE IN LONG CONVERSATION WITH HIM

When we say do not engage in long conversations, this is because he is “recovering” – when you were reciting Qur’ān he was being tortured (as he cannot stand words of the Al-Mighty) and when you are talking to him, he is getting respite. Ask him following questions, if he answers, fine and if he doesn’t, you continue reciting and he will ultimately speak!

Avoid following question as this has no benefit and it only brings harms ── on top of that there is no way you will be able to verify the answer


Simply ask jinn to leave or continue reciting ── he will either leave or die. You will not have any blame on the day of judgement – Allāh said:

And whoever avenges himself after having been wronged – those have not upon them any cause [for blame]. The cause is only against the ones who wrong the people and tyrannize upon the earth without right. Those will have a painful punishment. [42:41-42]


This is summary of how to treat a person who is under effect of black magic
