There is no such thing as sorcery, witchcraft and black or white (Noori) magic. Somehow, most Muslims think that the Arabs know Islam best. No, they blindly follow the ancient, ignorant "Imams" like Tabari and Ibn Kathir.
Jibt = Baseless mysteries, magic, future-telling, astrology, clairvoyance, evil eye, good and bad omens, ‘occult’ sciences, amulets, interpretation of dreams and prophecies (except by a Prophet), palm-reading, soothsaying, superstitions of all kind, demon or jinn-possession of people, exorcism, blowing verses and senseless words on people or in food and drink, counting names on rosaries.
Taaghoot = Those who, in rebellion to the One True God, claim to have Divine powers or try to portray themselves as His representatives, Sufis, mystics, deceptive priesthood, clergy, tyrants = Those who try to play god.
THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS MAGIC
Unfortunately, the so-called custodians of the Final Word of Allah never tire of saying, “Jaadoo bar haq, karnay wala kaafir.” (Magic is true but the magician is infidel.)
Europe has grown out of burning the "witches" alive at the stake three centuries ago although the Bible is full of such mysterious creatures as demons.
The Muslim clergy, “bewitched” by Hadith Bukhari and in total disregard to the Qur’an, insist that even the exalted prophet was influenced by a Jewish magician!
4:50 See, how the claimants to spiritual purity deceive people by inventing lies against God. That is sufficient to flagrantly drag them down in humanity.
4:51 Are you not aware of those who, after receiving their share of the Book (Qur’an), believe in Jibt. And they believe in Taaghoot (the evil humans who try to play god with their tyranny or with their religious exploitation as priests and monks, Mullahs and Sufis of any religion)? And then they claim that they, the deniers (of the Qur’an) are better guided than the believers in the Book!

THE PROPHET (S) AND MAGIC: The Qur’an is the greatest Smasher of all superstition such as magic, evil eye, miracles, clairvoyance, future-telling, good or bad omens, irrationalities and all things contrary to Sunnatillah (Divine Laws in Nature). It liberates mankind from all conjecture. Unfortunately, the Hadith collections very frequently run contrary to the Qur’an and bind Muslims in the same shackles that the Glorious Book had broken.
The 'Imams' of history and Hadith fabricated a wicked story (also reported in Bukhari) that the exalted Messenger was affected by a spell of magic contrived by a Jewish magician, Lubaid bin 'Aasim. After a while, a doll was recovered from an abandoned well. The doll had needles on it along with some scalp hair of the Prophet tied around. Reminds you of Voodoo? Under the influence of that magic, Rasool (S) used to think that he had done a task while he actually had not done it.
[Wasn’t delivering the Divine revelation to people his foremost responsibility? How about him forgetting this noble duty? But the narrator tries to pre-empt this objection.]
A lame apology by the criminal narrator: “No, he only used to think that he had gone to his wife while he had not.” Notice how cautious the fabricators were of getting caught! A guilty conscience needs no accuser.
Finally, the last two Surahs (113 & 114) were revealed to the Prophet (S) and each needle was pulled out with recitation of a verse from them. He became normal again. To this day, the Mullah calls these Surahs as Ma'oozatain - The two protectors (against magic etc!) Believing in this contrived story is sufficient to bring down the glorious station of prophethood. Yet, the so-called Muslims not only believe in it but, to this day, fall for unscrupulous people claiming to have the powers to cast spells of magic and to counter it, and thus deceive people into losing fortunes to them!
The Qur’an says in no uncertain terms that it is the Zaalimoon (wrongdoers, the wicked) who claim that the exalted Prophet was ever bewitched. (17:47, 25:8)
Illusion & Trickery: Today’s educated “magicians” honestly admit that they are tricksters and their work is nothing but illusion. This is what Pharaoh’s “magicians” had done before Moses and the assembly.
7:116 Moses asked them to begin. When they began they cast a spell on the people’s eyes, and struck them with awe, and stunned the assembly with their spellbinding eloquence.
The Conjecture of Haaroot & Maaroot:
2:102 (They had followed conjecture in the past as well.) Some satanic people spread a rumor in the Kingdom of Solomon (Sulaiman). Solomon never disbelieved in the Divine laws, but the satanic people did. They fabricated a story that two angels Haaroot and Maaroot had descended in Babylon and taught magic to some people; and that they used to warn people, “We are only a temptation, therefore be not oblivious to the rational Divine laws.” The rumor further stated that people learned magic from both of them and learned how to create discord between a man and his wife. They could harm none against the Divine laws. What they try to learn only harms them and does not profit them. They ought to know that any person indulging in this trade (the so-called occult sciences) will be a loser in the long run, and shall have no portion in the Hereafter. Evil is the price for which they sell their humanity, if they knew.
[The entire story of Haaroot Maaroot was based on conjecture. Magic, amulets, ghoul, demon-possession, exorcism, witchcraft, evil eye, fortune telling, astrology, palm reading, clairvoyance, knowledge of the future, Voodoo, are nothing but conjecture. These things can neither harm nor benefit anyone since nothing happens in the Universe contrary to the immutable Divine laws in nature. However, superstitions can harm people by becoming self-fulfilling prophecies. 3:123-127, 6:73, 7:54, 45:22. Divine laws never change 33:62, 35:43, 48:23, and you will never find even a slight turn in them. 17:77]
NASHARAH (THE PRETENSE OF DEMON EXPULSION) IS SATANIC
There have been four undiagnosed deaths in Lahore, Pakistan (Jun, 2002). The top Mullah has pronounced it as the work of evil Jinns and that the services of an experienced 'Aamil (a demon-expeller) must be sought.
An Aamil, Imran Nagi has graciously obliged with his diagnosis, "It is the black magic of Haandi Waar" (black magic done through a cooking pot!) He has demanded one million Rupees to counter the demon and protect others. It is amazing to see our Mullahs who consistently ignore the Qur’an, even refute their beloved Ahadith when it would serve their purpose.
The exalted Messenger reportedly said, "Nasharah (the pretense of expelling demons) is nothing but Satan's handiwork."
PS: Two more unexplained deaths have occurred in Lahore since Imran Nagi has gone to work two days ago.
