HOW MAGIC CREEP INTO JALABI BUSINESS





By

Ibn Abdillah As-sudaisiy Al-Iloori

Today, things are turning upside down. Many of those who many people regard to be Alfas (scholars) are in the business of magic practice. They investigate the future with the use of sand and other things, despite prophetic warning against horoscope and soothsaying. They engage in many unislamic rituals that are capable of taking its perpetrators out of Islaam. They seek evil powers through the help shayaateen among the jins and human beings. They memorizes different kinds of satanic incantations and they will try to justify it by every means. In a hadith, Abu Dharr رضي الله عنه said, "I was with the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم  one day and I heard him saying:

"There is something I fear for my Ummah than the Dajjal."

It was then that I became afraid, so I said: "Oh Rasuul Allah! Which thing is that?" He صلى الله عليه وسلم said;

"Misguided and astray scholars." [Musnad Ahmad (5/145) No. 21334 and 21335]

It is unfortunate that some of these people are mischievously equating their devilish incantations with ruqyah (du'a) that are specifically prescribed by the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم. Ruqyah prayers are not incantations. They are du'a from selected verses of the Qur'an based prophetic traditions.

A Muslim can recite ruqyah du'a for himself. That is permissible; indeed that is the Sunnah, for the Messenger صلىالله عليه وسلم recited ruqyah for himself, and some of his Companions رضي الله عنهم recited ruqyah for themselves. It was narrated that ‘Aa’isha رضي الله عنها said: When the Messenger of Allah صلى الله عليه وسلم was ill, he would recite al-Mu’wadhatayn over himself and spit drily. When his pain grew intense, I recited over him and wiped him with his own hand, seeking its barakah (blessing).” (Narrated by al-Bukhaari, 4728; Muslim, 2192)

Sheikh Ibn Taymiyyah رحمه الله said:

"The Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم recited ruqyah for himself and for others; he did not ask anyone to recite ruqyah for him. His reciting ruqyah for himself and others was like his making du’a for himself and others; this is something that is enjoined, for all the Prophets asked of Allah and prayed to Him, as Allah tells us in the stories of Adam, Ibraaheem, Moosa and others. (Majmoo’ al-Fataawa , 1/182)

In another hadith: it was narrated that Ibn ‘Abbaas رضي الله عنه said: The Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم used to seek refuge for al-Hasan and al-Husayn, and he would say: “Your father [meaning Ibraaheem عليه السلام] used to seek refuge with Allaah for Ismaa’eel and Ishaaq with these words: 

أعوذ بكلمات الله التامة من كل شيطان وهامة ومن كل عين لامة 

A’oodhu bi kalimaat Allaah al-taammah min kulli shaytaanin wa haammah wa min kulli ‘aynin laammah 

(I seek refuge in the perfect words of Allaah, from every devil and every poisonous reptile, and from every evil eye).’” [Narrated by al-Bukhaari, 3191]

So, how does these du'a relate to incantations of the kuffaar that many of these Alfas read today? How many jalabi Alfas know the ruqyah prayers? Many of them don't even believe in it. They are fond of using the names of Jins. "Jalabi" as a profession has no justification in the shari'ah. The Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم did not take jalabi as a job. The same thing with the sohaabah رضي الله عنهم, they used not to sit somewhere and expect people to bring their problems for solution, as a business venture. They used to work and feed themselves and their families with the gains from their sweats.
