Is it possible to buy / use magic items in Islam?

24 Aug 2019 Ref-No#: 2154

Assalamu Alaikum. I have a unique question for you that does not leave me alone. A year earlier, I wrote a similar question to you and you answered it (link to your answer: https://www.fatwaa.com/hot-how-to-control-the-jinn-in-islam/) – there I am you asked about whether there are control methods/interaction with djinns in Islam (and I will further refer you to one subject in which it is possibly populated by the entity or which is related to their organization) and you have confirmed that this is possible in Islam using methods from Rukya and Genie Amliyat and you also advised me to turn to/find a reliable Amil for advice. What actually I did, I found Amil (but the truth is only through the Internet) and this is Brother Rahman (His website: BrotherRahman.net. Although there are other such people, he is probably the most reliable and experienced – in the whole network! Therefore, I brought you him.).

Brother Rahman lives in the USA and is now about 70 years old, for 30 years he studied these magical sciences all over the world with more than 35 teachers in order to help people with their serious spiritual problems (for example, problems from black-magic/sihra, from djinns and other spiritual problems) and now he has mastered many of these knowledge/abilities that now he is one of the best of his kind (he also has access to Muwakil (Hadam) genie) and of course he is a Muslim (on his site has many very professional and informational articles on this subject – th again saying that he really knows his business). And on his website there is such a section “store” where he will delight his goods/services; such as his taweez, talismans, amulets and other things. But many of these talismans/amulets do not contain 100% Karanic inscriptions, Zikrov, Names of Allah, etc., but have obscure (for me) magic words / pectograms (in obscure languages), numbers, five/six final stars , magic squares, etc. – he is talking about it that it’s all from Roohani/Nuruni ilm (Religious spiritual knowledge), he says that these are all sciences from Islam. Is that so yes? And some of his talismans and amulets contain Islamic inscriptions (ayat of the Qur’an, dhikr, etc.) and these magical inscriptions incomprehensible to me and some of its amulets have an internal metal book, a place where Incense or other incense is stored (this is for genies), and some do not have a single inscription (such as magic Keris/Kris). I’m telling you all this because I liked some of his very rare items from his store, namely these:

1. Amulet of Power (product link: https://www.brotherrahman.net/product/king-of-rare-magical-the-amulet-of-power-enhanced/).

2. Argey Sawahill (product link: https://www.brotherrahman.net/product/legend-of-the-spiritual-world-argey-sawahill/).

3. (talisman) 101 Aluwi Angels (product link:
https://www.brotherrahman.net/product/talisman-protection-of-101-aluwi-angels/).

And his other similar items… but of course some of what I brought to you now is not in stock, but I want to find out for the future so that when he appears again he can immediately buy/order them.

What can you say about this, can I buy these amulets/talismans, etc. from Brother Rahman? – I really want something similar to myself, but I’m not completely convinced that in Islam all this can be. In Islam there is magic and these sciences like Roohani/Nuruni ilm? If there is why then there is no information about this from the life of the prophet Muhammad (s.a.w.) and his associates and other such people? What tell me to buy/have magic items and is there all of Shirk?

Jazzaka Allahu Hairan.

Wa’alaykum as Salam wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu,

Whilst the usage of talismans and amulets have been established from Ahadith, a primary condition is that there should be no verses of Shirk. A Sahabi, ‘Auf bin Malik (may Allah be pleased with him) said,

عَنْ عَوْفِ بْنِ مَالِكٍ رَضِىَ اللَّهُ عَنْهُ قَالَ: كُنَّا نَرْقِى فِى الْجَاهِلِيَّةِ فَقُلْنَا: يَا رَسُولَ اللَّهِ مَا تَقُولُ فِى ذَلِكَ فَقَالَ: اعْرِضُوا عَلَىَّ رُقَاكُمْ لاَ بَأْسَ بِالرُّقَى مَا لَمْ يَكُنْ فِيهِ شِرْكٌ (أخرجه مسلم في صحيحه – 4/ 1727)

“We used to do Ruqya in the era of Jaahiliyyah (ignorance). (After Islam) We enquired from the Prophet (salallahu alayhi wa sallam), ‘O prophet of Allah, what do you say about the this?’ The Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) replied: ‘Present your Ruqya to me.” He then said: ‘There is nothing wrong with Ruqya as long there is no Shirk in it.’ (Sahih Muslim, 4/1727)

One has to be sure that there is nothing contrary to the teachings of Islam inscribed on the amulet.

Having perused the link in your query, since there are many obscure inscriptions, mention of stars etc, it would not be permissible to use any of those amulets.

You have yourself admitted that there is no proof of these type of magical items proven from the life of our Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam)

Rather recite what has been established from Ahadith, like the four Quls, Ayah al-Kursi etc. These are much more effective, and you will not be charged any exorbitant fees.
