Islamic Black Magic (Voodoo)


Islamic apologists often extol the scientific nature of Islam: that Islam has no room for spirituous mumbo—jumbo. This blatant distortion of the truth about Islam might work well for those who have no, or very little idea about the proliferation of many superstitious Islamic rites routinely performed for the alleviation of many afflictions. If you ever chanced to observe any such superstitious rites, you will be amazed at the similarities between Islamic procedures and the Black Magic performed by many voodoo cults in Africa and South America.

First, let us examine the Qur'an and its use to perform Islamic Black Magic. Many Mullahs routinely perform such rituals as professional Islamic black magicians. Please note that both Shias and Sunnis practice Islamic Black Magic, although the Shias are more prone to resort to such rituals.

The Use of the Qur'an as Black Magic


One of the most commonly practiced Islamic black magic is istikhara. This is the use of the Qur'an as a talisman or the reading of the Qur'an for some magical results. The seeker of istikhara goes to a Mullah who is an expert in this magic. The Mullah repeatedly recites verse 6:59 of the Qur’an, and having given salutation to Muhammad, closes his eyes, turns his face upwards, and utters Allah while moving his fingers across the pages of the Qur'an. Then he stops his finger and reads the first sentence or the part of sentence on the page of the Qur'an.
The Mullah then provides the answer to the candidate’s question.

The Shias believe that Hasan, Caliph Ali’s eldest son, and a grandson of Muhammad wore a talisman containing the Suras 113 and 114.

Also widely used for Islamic Black Magic is Sura Ya Sin (Sura 36), considered to be the heart of the Qur'an. The victims recite this Sura at times of adversities, illness, fasting and on the approach of death. Ibn Kathir, the most eminent Qur’anic tafsir writer scribes that whoever recites Ya Sin at night will wake up forgiven, and whoever recites Ha Mim (Sura 41) in which Ad‑Dukhan (the Smoke) is mentioned, will wake up forgiven.

According to ibn Abbas, Ya Sin is a Syriac language, which means ‘Glorified is His mention’. On the potency of Islamic Black Magic of this Sura ibn Ishaq (p.222) mentions that when Abu Jahl’s people went to Muhammad’s house to kill him, Muhammad recited 36:1–8 and sprinkled dust on the faces of Abu Jahl’s men, and they failed to see Muhammad.

Today, this Islamic Black Magic is very much alive among the devout Muslims. If a Muslim is serious about protection from harmful slander, he just recites verses 36:65–66. When a Muslim suffers from pneumonia or dysentery, all he/she has to do is to write these verses on a piece of paper, wash the paper with water, and then drink the water. If a Muslimah follows this procedure during child–birth she is guaranteed to have a painless child‑birth, the Mullahs firmly believe. For toothache, write verses 36:78–83 on paper and hang it on the side of the ear of the aching tooth. This will remove the toothache—Islamic style.

Other Suras, which are quite frequently used in Islamic Black Magic, are: 48 (Victory), 55 (ar‑Rahman), 60 (Mumtahan), 72 (Jinns or Spirits), 78 (the Tidings), and 114 (Mankind).

Here is a brief list of Islamic Black Magic via the Qur'an:

To protect valuables in a box—write Sura 114 on paper and store the scribble in the box.

To prevent moth attack—write 2:267 and keep it in clothing.

To prevent the effect of evil eyes—write 2:14–15 on a turtle’s skin, and keep the turtle with you.

For abundant produce from a garden, write the entire Sura Ya Sin (Sura 36) and hang the paper on a tree in the garden.

For personal security, wear Sura Ya Sin inserted in a talisman.

To find hidden treasure, tie verse 3:9 and the entire Sura 95 (The Fig) on a white rooster’s neck, and let the rooster find the treasure.

To overcome thirst during a journey, write verse 2:6 on a piece of paper, wash the paper, and drink the water.

To eliminate fatigue of a long walk, tie verse 36:25 on your feet.

For safe long journey in the sea, and to ameliorate draught and famine, recite repeatedly 2:256–260.

For protection against flood, wear verse 36:48; even when the whole world is flooded the wearer’s sole will remain dry.

To be a famous scholar, on the first Friday of the month, during sunset, write on a black stone verses 5:109–112, and wear the stone‑carving.

A man hunting a suitable marriage partner: write 4:87–89 on a piece of garment worn by a young married woman, keep that garment with him. In due time, his match‑makers will find the woman he has in mind.

A woman wanting to maintain harmonious relation with her husband, write the above verses (4:87–89) on a piece of paper, insert the paper inside a talisman, and hide that talisman under the pillow of the husband.

To destroy an enemy’s house, write 3:122–124 on a piece of horse skin, bury it underground on your enemy’s property, and in due time Allah will destroy the property.If you desire the death of another person, read 2:256–260 and Allah will do the job.

Alternatively, on plaster of paris, make a mask of the enemy’s face; write 5:30–33 on the mask’s face, write the name of the enemy on the back of the mask, and then stab with a knife the location where the name is written.


For bullet‑proof vest, Islamic style, write the entire Sura Ya Sin (Sura 36) on an Islamic shirt, and wear it. No bullet will pierce this Islamic vest.
For abundant supply of needful, recite the verse of Throne, that is, ayatul Kursi (2:255).
To overcome a grave situation—recite forty times a day verse 3:141 for forty days.
To possess great physical strength, do as above, but nineteen times a day for nineteen days.
For good health, do above, but five times a day for five days.
For safe‑keeping of money in a bank, or to be released from a prison, recite Sura 72 (the Jinn).
(The above list of Islamic Black Magic is the adopted version of an article on ‘The Koran a Magic.’ For details please visit:

Here are more examples of Islamic Black Magic from the Qur’an:

In verse 2:260 we read that upon Allah’s instruction Abraham killed four birds, but they became alive again. This was the demonstration of Allah’s power to Abraham.

To illustrate this incredible Islamic Black Magic ibn Kathir writes that Abraham kept the heads of the four birds he slaughtered; other parts he scattered on four mountains. Then, as per Allah’s instruction he called these birds, and they came back to life and walked back to him. Each bird came to Abraham to collect its head.

Jalalyn writes that Abraham took a peacock, an eagle, a raven, and a cock to perform the above Islamic Black Magic.

The Qur'an says that Jesus performed a similar Islamic Black Magic as Abraham did. In verse 5:110 Allah says that He gave Torah and Injil (Gospel) to Jesus; Jesus made a bird out of clay. Then when Jesus breathed into this clay‑bird it became alive and flew away. Allah empowered Jesus to heal the lepers, and to give life to the dead persons. This verse also says that Allah made Jesus speak from his cradle.

Verses 5:112–115 say Jesus requested food for his disciples and Allah sent food to them but with a stern warning.

Verse 3:46 says angels told Mary that Jesus would speak from his crib.

Here are a few more samples of Allah’s black magic contained in the Qur'an:

§       Allah transformed some unbelievers (Jews) into apes, some to swine... 5:60

  • Jinns take lives of many humans; those men who made friends with the Jinns, Allah will send them to hell to dwell there permanently...6:128
  • Allah sent to the disbelievers of Moses’ people: 1. Epidemics like plague among men and beasts 2. Attack of locusts 3. Attack of lice 4. Attack of frogs 5.Water turning to blood...7:133
  • Allah caused a man to sleep for a century, then raised him up; but the man thought that he slept only for a day...2:259
  • Messengers of death terminate the lives of the rejecters of the Qur’an…7:37

The authentic Islamic sources are teemed with multitude of incredible, audacious, and mind‑boggling stuff, which can be classified as plain black magic. Here is a short list of such Islamic magic materials. To keep the length of this episode short it is a summarised version of major Islamic superstitions and Islamic Black Magic.

Effects of Evil Eyes


This is an interesting topic. Most Muslims believe that the manner in which a person, especially an infidel, looks at a Muslim, or at any object he (the Muslim) possesses, or at any food he eats, has an effect (evil) on his personal well‑being. For example, in some Islamic countries, it is widely believed that one should not eat in the presence of a beggar or in front of a starveling person. Because, the penetrating look of the hungry person will lead to stomach cram in you.

Here is more on this Islamic voodoo.

  • The effect of an evil eye is a fact…(Sahih Bukhari, 7.71.636)
  • If you are caught by an evil eye then take a bath…(Sahih Muslim, 26.5427)
  • The effect of evil eyes to cause sickness is true…(Sunaan ibn Majah, 5.3506, 3507)
  • For affliction by evil eyes use water in which Muhammad’s hair has been soaked…(Sahih Bukhari, 7.72.784)
  • Truffle juice is a medicine for the spell of evil eyes…(Sunaan Tirmidhi, 1194)

In Ash Shifa (p.284) we read that Muhammad used talismen to word off the effect of evil eyes. Ibn Ishaq related that the Messenger of Allah used to have a talisman against the evil eyes before the revelation descended on him. After the Qur'an had descended on him and he was afflicted with something of the evil eyes Khadija asked him, “Shall I send someone to you to make a talisman for you?” He replied, “No, not now.”


Islamic Incantations, Charms, and Spells


Here is a short compilation of these Islamic rituals.

  • Incantation is allowed in every type of poison…(Sahih Bukhari, 26.5442, 5443)
  • Muhammad identified the black scar face of a girl as the influence of an evil eye and recommended to cure her by incantation…(Sahih Muslim, 26.5450)
  • Bitten by a snake or stung by a scorpion, recite Sura Fateha (Sura 1) and spit on the bitten part; cure the lunacy of a lunatic by reciting Sura Fateha in the morning and in the evening, and spitting on the lunatic for three days; Muhammad said Islamic charm is the only genuine charm…(Sunaan Abu Dawud, 2.23.3413)
  • Umm-ul-Qur’an (Sura Fateha) incantation is a cure for all diseases… (Sahih Muslim, 26.5459)
  • To ward off the effect of evil eyes of jinns or humans, do incantation of the last two Suras of the Qur’an…(Sunaan ibn Majah, 5.3511)
  • Muhammad believed in magic and thought that he was under the spell of a magic cast by Labid bin al-A'sam…(Sahih Bukhari, 7.71.658, 660, 661)
  • Labid put magic spell on Muhammad. Muhammad claimed that the magic spell consisted of 11 knots…(Lings, p.168)
  • Muhammad was under a spell of magic; he was bewitched, thinking that he had sex with his wives, when he did not…(Sahih Bukhari, 8.73.89)
  • There is no harm in casting spell so long as it does not involve polytheism… (Sunaan Abu Dawud, 3.28.3877)
  • Due to spell, Muhammad’s memory started failing. Sura 113 and 114 refer to this charm…(Lings, p.261)
  • Islamic geomancy is allowed…(Sunaan Abu Dawud, 3.29.3900)
  • For some severe pain wash the affected part seven times with your right hand and say Muhammad’s prayer of casting spell…(Sunaan Abu Dawud, 3.28.3882)
  • Muhammad used to heal his wives by placing his right hand over the place of ailment and chanting litany...(Sahih Bukhari, .71.639, 646)

Islamic Superstitions


In Islam there are too many superstitions, perhaps a book can be penned on this topic alone. Islamic superstition is endemic because Muhammad was an extremely superstitious person. Here is a brief list of a few outstanding Islamic Superstitions. Mind you, all these superstitious beliefs are from Muhammad, therefore, compulsory for all Muslims to adhere to them.

Allah sends eclipse to frighten the believers...(Sahih Bukhari, 2.18.167)

Angels do not enter a house in which there is a dog or there are pictures… (Sahih Bukhari, 7.72.833)

If you lift your eyes towards sky during prayer you may lose your eyesight… (Sahih Muslim, 4.0862, 0863)

If you find a snake in your house (that may be a jinn; remember snakes are non‑Muslim jinns) make life difficult for it for three days, and if it goes away (it is a believer in Islam) then fine; if not then kill it because it is a non‑believer…(Sahih Muslim, 26.5558)

Ants sing glory of Allah, so do not kill ants; only kill the ants that bite you… (Sahih Muslim, 26.5567, 5568)

Allah will change the face of a man to an ass’s face if he lifts his head before the imam…(Sahih Muslim, 4.0859, 0860, 0861)

The angels do not come near three things. These are: 1. an unbeliever’s dead body 2. anything perfumed with saffron 3. sexually defiled people…(Sunan Abu Dawud, 33.4168)

When a cock crows, it has seen an angel; when an ass brays it has seen the devil…(Sunaan Abu Dawud, 3.41.5083)

Angels do not enter a house in which there is a bell…(Sunaan Abu Dawud, 3.34.4219)

Snakes with two stripes cause miscarriage and blindness in a woman; so kill these snakes… (Sunaan ibn Majah, 5.3534, 3535)

A miscarriage fetus will drag its mother to paradise…(Sunaan ibn Majah, 2.1609)

A jihadist’s wound smells of musk…(Sunaan ibn Majah, 4.2795)

The Qur’an will be raised as a pale man…(Sunaan ibn Majah, 5.3781)

The parents of an aborted child will be in hell; however, if the aborted child disputes the abortion then Allah will ask the child to draw with its umbilical cord its parents to paradise…(Sunaan Tirmidhi, 555)

A prayer is suspended in the sky until blessing on Muhammad is provoked. ’Umar ibn al‑Khatab said, “Supplication and prayer are suspended between the heaven and the earth and none of it rises to Allah until you pray on the Prophet.” ‘Ali related something similar and added, “and on the family of Muhammad.” It is related that supplication is veiled until the one making the supplication prays on the Prophet…(Ash Shifa, p.253)

If you do not bless Muhammad you get the smell of a corpse. Jabir said that the Prophet said, “a people do not sit in a gathering and then part without saying the prayer on the Prophet that they part on something fouler than the smell of a corpse.”…(Ash Shifa, p.262‑263)

Put blind faith first, and then study the Qur’an…(Sunaan ibn Majah, 1.61)

Believe Muhammad blindly and he blesses you seven times…(Sunaan Tirmidhi, 1688, 1689)

If anyone searches for this world instead of religious knowledge, he will be turned into a pig…(Ghazali, p.1.67)

A night prayer is nothing but holding secret talks with God…(Ghazali, p.1.263)

For fatal illness, blow your breath after reciting Sura an-Nas and Sura al-Fateha…(Sahih Bukhari, 7.71.631)

The Magical Power of Muhammad’s Blood, Urine, and Excrement


In Ash Shifa we read the following unbelievable text, depicting the magical power of Muhammad’s biological waste products.


Drink Muhammad’s blood and no fire will touch you.

There was also the time when Malik ibn Sinan drank his blood on the Day of Uhud and licked it up. The Prophet allowed him to do that and then said, “The fire will not touch you”(Ash Shifa, p.36).


Something similar occurred when ‘Abdullah ibn az‑Zubayr drank his cupped blood. The Prophet said, “Woe to you from the people and woe to the people from you.” But he did not object to what he had done (Ash Shifa, p.36)


Drink Muhammad’s urine and have no stomach ache.

Something similar is related about a woman who drank some of his urine. He told her, “You will never complain of a stomach‑ache.”

He did not order any of them to wash their mouths out nor did he forbid them to do it again (Ash Shifa, p.36).

Muhammad defecates, trees join together.


Muhammad defecates in a wadi, stones and trees join together.

A mimosa tree sought Muhammad’s permission to greet him (Ash Shifa, p.166).

Muhammad ibn Sa’d , al‑Waqidi’s scribe, related that ‘A’isha said to the Prophet, “When you come from relieving yourself, we do not see anything noxious from you.” He said, “A’isha, don’t you know that the earth swallows up what comes out of the prophets so that none of it is seen?”…(Ash Shifa, p.35)

Here are a few examples of Muhammad’s power to perform miracles.

Islamic Heart Surgery on Muhammad


Here is how Tabari describes this incredible event:

Muhammad was 40 when he received the commissioning as a prophet. Two angels visited Muhammad while he was somewhere in the valley of Mecca. The angels weighed Muhammad against ten men… and repeated this weighing for several times. The angels said that Muhammad would outweigh the entire community. One angel came down on earth while the other remained between heaven and the earth. The angel opened Muhammad’s breast and took out his heart. The angel cleaned the heart. A white cat‑face like object was placed in Muhammad’s heart. The angels then sewed up Muhammad’s breast and placed the seal of prophethood between his shoulders…(Tabari,

Here are a few ahadith on Muhammad’s Night Jiurney:

Muhammad’s heart was opened and filled with wisdom and faith…(Sahih Muslim, 1.0315)

Gabriel acted as Islam…(Sunaan Nasai, 1.497)

Muhammad had some madness in him.
Hammad ibn Salama said that the Prophet said, “I hear a voice and see a light and I fear that there is some madness in me.”…(Ash Shifa, p.284)

Perhaps the greatest of all Islamic black magic is this:

Muhammad brought out the corpse of Abdullah ibn Ubayy and put his (Muhammad’s) saliva in his (Abdullah’s) mouth, and shrouded him in his own shirt…(Sahih Muslim, 38.6678)

Because this hadis is such a profound admission of the existence of Islamic black magic let us read this hadis in full.

Sahih Muslim, Book 038, Number 6678:
Jabir reported Allah's Apostle (may peace be upon him) came to the grave of 'Abdullah b. Ubayy, brought him out from that, placed him on his knee and put his saliva in his mouth and shrouded him in his own shirt and Allah knows best.

The above hadis is the epitome Islamic Black Magic.

It is a good exposure of islamic superstitions and "voodoos and black-magic". So much for "science" in Quran! It is just a mockery of common sense and sheer blind belief. Muslims have to swallow this humiliatingly after all ,with their beliefs in "jinns,angels,"and now black magic and blind superstitions. They are no better than any "backward" tribal voodoo and idol worshippers!

you idiots, how is this all vodoo? before lashing on Islam, take a look at Christianity. You folks believe in angels and devils as well. What is wrong with reciting verses straight out of the Qur'an? You folks recite your own verses. Maybe your just jealous because you idiots can't figure out how to get greater rewards by reciting certain verses from the bible. you folks are a bunch of hypocrites. your priests recite biblical verses on people that are possessed? what is that all of a sudden acceptable and okay? wouldn't that be a form of vodoo as well. you haters are a pathetic bunch that can only dignify your stuff over the internet. your what i like to call ignorant idiots. that's right let the media brain-wash idiots like you into becoming more stupider.

"Most Muslims believe that the manner in which a person, especially an infidel, looks at a Muslim, or at any object he (the Muslim) possesses, or at any food he eats, has an effect (evil) on his personal well‑being. For example, in some Islamic countries, it is widely believed that one should not eat in the presence of a beggar or in front of a starveling person. Because, the penetrating look of the hungry person will lead to stomach cram in you." Just One thing i picked whilst scrolling up to get a quote. Acctually Muslims are taught that you must not eat when there is someone around you hungry. you must offer them food. A famous narrations tells that a true Muslim doesnt eat unless twenty neighbours in every direction have food. HOW CAN AN EVIL RELIGION TEACH SUCH HUMANITY?

You wrote: "Islamist apologists often extol the scientific nature of Islam, that Islam has no room for spirituous mumbo—jumbo." Islam is a religion that teaches us science. but more than that it tells of that there are more laws that govern the world than just those that science has uncovered. I call you narrow minded as you doubt everything unless it is proven to you. The opposite end of the scale is naivity, where you belive in everthing straight away. I prefer to be open minded in that i do not doubt nor accept anything unless shown one way or the other. Why is it so hard for you to believe that there exists more within the heavens and the earth and all between than just what you can see? Islam, i prefer to think of, as a religion that combines science as well as everything else that exists. So the Quran provides verses that we may recite for protection or other means such as cures for ailments or help with problems. Why did you not, may i ask, not quote the verse of Quran which says (and it is repeated i believe throughout) that things will and can ONLY happen with the will of Allah (swt)? We can only use His book by His permission.

The author of this article definitely seems confused between the duas (prayers) & magic and labels everything as a spell....Suggest you do some research before spreading such falsehood....Doesn’t the author know that “little knowledge is a dangerous thing?”

ASsalaam, PLS don't mind brother but u shudn't call this "Islamic Voodoo or Black Magick". both of these require invocation of a demon or djinn. There are two kind of magicks ... Black Magick and White Magic(also known as 'Nooraani 'ilm')or in otherwords knowledge of the light. Yes Muslims believe in magick n' who says we dont. Muslims don't practice it bcuz its one of the great sins. cuz instead of relying on God we r asking demonic creatures for help. 2ndly, in America's 1 state only there are probably 50,000 witches or more. Most human sacrifices are made in America to satisfy there diety. Who worship evil spirits n' offcourse suffer the consequences bcuz satan while gives them somethin also takes away somethin. U can see "Interview With an Ex-Vampire" for this reference. "Nooraani Ilm" has no side effects nor we ask for help except from one God Almighty. Most of the "nooraani Ilm" in Quraan is used for healing and knowledgable purpose. It can't be exercised by a normal muslim like me. Its a combination of special verses read at special times to achieve specific results. For example healing of a person possessed by demon/djinn. but the Good thing about Noorani Ilm is that "black magic" has no power over it. otherwise true religions like Islam, Christianity never would have been able to heal a person from demonic possession. PC---> The word "magic" is not the correct word,it is mostly regarded as stage magic. Real word to differentiate it is "magick" with an extra "k" at the end. Thanku!

I am appalled by your interpretation of the Quran and Astaghfirullah, claiming that "Allah does black magic". I hope that none of you muslims take any of this article in truth.The author of this article is very confused about Islam, confusing black magic with dua. But if he has good intentions, may Allah forgive him.

I certainly feel bad for this author. No one should take the word of a kaffir. This disgusting kaffir is not worthy of having the words of the beautiful Quran uttered from his kaffir mouth.

There is no doubt about the fact that its people like Abdul Karim who will be punished the most on the day of Judgement. Please change your name, you don't DESERVE keeping the name Abdul which means "servant of God"! This stupid person calls himself a writer and doesn't know the difference bw "Miracle" and "Magic". Allah is capable of doing all good, and its translated in Quran, which is a book of Miracles. Miracle is used for the "good" to "remove" the evil. Read this article again, and you will see this condemned person is hissing on Quran for being wrong about removing evil. Not to forget he is completely wrong about Istakharaa. Maybe his parents needed to teach him the real religion when he was born. But again if he knew the real Islam he wouldn't have converted. Its amazing to see that Allah knows this and is still providing such people with food and shelter. Makes my religion even stronger, and believe in Allah more, and consider Quran as my path of life. Quran is to teach us the "way" of living. Its a cure for life, if only anyone would understand.

The Quran itself prohibate black magic. You can see that in Surah Bakar. the integral component of all kind of magic is Shirk that means worship idols, jinn, etc other than Allah. Quran and Islam is against all kind of Shirks. Muslim pray to Allah for help, health, wealth, peace and successful eternal hereafter life. You can not say this as a black magic. Religious people prays for help. Quarn is the Sheefa (That Cure disease, way to ask help from Allah). Isteekhara is not magic. It is kind dua (pray to show path). In Istekhara person recite certain dua shown by prophet Muhammad and then offer salah (Prayer) and Allah show him/her a path. Brother before blamming one should inquired of everything. There are many Bidahs. Bidahs are the rutals done by muslim which are not allowed by Islam rather Islam is against it because such rutals are not shown by prophet muhammad. You can not such a bidhas as black magic. it is just superistions.

we all Muslims can actually conclude dat dis man relly was not even able to understand islam and just wrote an article or he intended to make islam,s reputation bad in the eyes of the people; so the non-muslims who red it should ignore it as a request or an advise n all others, i mean my fellow muslims, should not argue within themselves which shows no good impression of our religion. let us all live in peace togather n Allah is the one to punish or forgive Abul Kasem for what he has done thanks alot for your attention

Well, considering that the arabic Qur'an is the word of God, and Allah has prescribed some things as a cure, why not? Just like the Prophet recommended milk for stomach aches, he recommended the Qur'an for other illnesses. What's your point? Remember the Bible and exorcism? Satanism? You'll never find a Muslim satanist anywhere. And BTW BLACK MAGIC IS HARAM IN ISLAM. But you conveniently don't mention that to fool your viewers. If this is where your website viewers get their info on Islam then God help them. Allah rules and you're just jealous.
