In today’s world some people do not think twice before hiring black magicians, tantriks, witches, voodoo magic practitioners etc for serving their own selfish interests. In one of my earlier blogs remove voodoo dolls - I have highlighted the primary reasons why people hire such evil people. This is a well-known fact that sorcery is totally forbidden in Islam but unfortunately, we find many people around us who hire witchcraft practitioners for casting spells on their opponents. Due to their bloated ego, such people cannot bear to see anyone around them happy and prosperous. So if they see that anyone has superseded their success, they try to hide their own discomfiture by having the spell of destruction cast on that person. In many cases, people become so blinded by envy, jealousy and hatred that they end up sawing off the very branch on which they sit. For example, envy may drive A to destroy the success of his brother B. However, this strategy can spell disaster as it lacks farsightedness. If in the near future A falls on bad times then his brother B who could have easily helped him to tide over the crisis- will not be in a position to save him at all.
Instead of forgiving those who have wronged us the egoistic people prefer to hold a grudge against them throughout their lives. Even if someone has victimized us and we find it difficult to bring ourselves to forgive such a person- in this case too- seeking revenge through black magic or otherwise is not a lawful thing to do. Our suffering at the hands of an enemy may be a trial for us from Allah (swt) and the more steadfast and patient that we remain throughout the ordeal- the more blessings and rewards we can expect from Allah (swt).
Allah (says in the Holy Quran:
“And certainly We shall test you with something of fear, hunger, loss of wealth, lives and fruits, but give glad tidings to As-Sabirin (the patient ones.)” (TMQ- 2:155)
Despite this many people spent exorbitant sums of money to witchcraft practitioners due to vices such as greed, envy, vindictiveness etc. They feel that a single witchcraft attack by such practitioners will help then to bring their enemies to book. They look upon such evil magic practitioners as an oasis in a desert or a rudder which can help them steer their life’s ship smoothly. They are usually awed by the magician’s spiritual powers through which they can stealthily overcome their enemies. The magicians are also clever enough to fool their clients by using witchcraft jargon before them. Soon enough, the clients develop a blind faith on the witches, tantriks etc.
However, even though a witchcraft practitioner may seem to be a Good Samaritan for such evil-minded people yet the truth remains that those who cast spells, do so only to make money- lots of money to be precise. The more that they are able to influence and impress their clients the more easily can they extract money from them on some pretext or other.
In a nutshell, it should be remembered that the people who cast witchcraft spells for destruction, disease, death or other such evil purposes are not saviors. They do so only for filling their own coffers. They do not show any reluctance even if the client expects them to kill someone innocent through a witchcraft spell. This shows that they basically have an evil nature and hence are not completely untrustworthy.
