ISLAMIC AL-JUMUAA REMINDER AND LEGACY GROUP (http://aljumaareminder.com/) The tricks/magic of the magicians exposed:
MAGICIANS – Part 4 – You know the unseen!? You can see the future!?
Remember that Satan (Iblis) and his soldiers from the jinn see you from where you cannot see them. Refer to (Qur’an 7:27). Remember that Satan (Iblis) is from the jinn. Refer to (Qur’an 18:50). Do you know that everyone has a jinn who is assigned to push them to do evil? Let us see the proof on the Day of Judgment from the Qur’an:
His companion (Qarin) will say: “Our Lord! I did not push him to transgression, but he was himself in error far astray.” Allah will say: “Dispute not in front of Me, I had already in advance sent you the threat. The Sentence that comes from Me cannot be changed, and I am not unjust to the slaves.” (Qur’an 50:27-29)
Ibn Katheer said: “His companion (qarin) will say’ – Ibn Abbas (may Allah be pleased with him), Mujaahid, Qataadah and others said: this refers to the devil who is appointed to accompany him. ‘Our Lord! I did not push him to transgression’ means, he will disown that person on the Day of Judgement, and will say, ‘Our Lord! I did not push him to transgression’ meaning, I did not lead him astray.
Let us also see some proof from Hadith: Abdullah b. Mas’ud reported that Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) said: There is none amongst you with whom is not an attache from amongst the jinn (devil). They (the Companions) said: Allah’s Messenger, with you too? Thereupon he said: Yes, but Allah helps me against him and so I am safe from his hand and he does not command me but for good. (Muslim Book #039, Hadith #6757)
It was narrated from ‘Abdullah bin ‘Umar that the Messenger of Allah (SAW) said: “When anyone of you is performing prayer, he should not let anyone pass in front of him. If he insists then let him fight him, for he has a Qarin (devil-companion) with him.” [Sunan Ibn Majah] [English reference: Vol 1, Book 5, Hadith 955] [A similar hadith has been reported in Muslim]
Now that we have gone over the proofs, let us see what Allah informs us about the knowledge of the unseen. The main points are that only Allah knows the unseen; not even His Messengers know the unseen unless Allah reveals it to them. The magicians use the jinns to perform their magic. Believe it or not, even the jinns don’t know the unseen.
And with Him (Allah) are the keys of the Ghaib (all that is hidden), none knows them but He. And He knows whatever there is in (or on) the earth and in the sea; not a leaf falls, but he knows it. There is not a grain in the darkness of the earth nor anything fresh or dry, but is written in a Clear Record. (Qur’an 6:59)
Say (O Muhammad SAW): “I possess no power of benefit or hurt myself except as Allah wills. If I had the knowledge of the Ghaib (unseen), I should have secured for myself an abundance of wealth, and no evil should have touched me. I am but a warner, and a bringer of glad tidings unto people who believe.” (Qur’an 7:188)
Then when We decreed death for him [Sulaiman], nothing informed them (jinns) of his death except a little worm of the earth, which kept (slowly) gnawing away at his stick, so when he fell down, the jinns saw clearly that if they had known the unseen, they would not have stayed in the humiliating torment. (Qur’an 34:14)
You might be wondering, “Hey what’s going on here? Nobody knows the unseen!? I meet or have heard of stories about people being able to give details about the unseen.” Yes, you might have witnessed or heard about such people but it is falsehood; those people who claim to know the unseen are simply magicians. Remember when we told you via the past three articles that magic is falsehood and magicians try to utilize the abilities of the jinns to perform their so called miracles or supernatural acts.
Abu Talha Zahack: …And if he informs you, your name, your town’s name and the purpose of the visit then he is a magician. If he claims he knows unseen, then he is a magician because no one knows unseen except Allah….at the time of Ahmed Ibn Amr, a person challenged he knows the number of grains in your bag and when he came to the town of Ahmed Ibn Amr and said, “I can tell the number of grains in your bag.” So everyone came with the grains in their bags and as per the challenge he said, “Your bag contains 100 grains, 200 grains, 500 grains, 1000 grains,..” but when the turn of Ahmed Ibn Amr came, he couldn’t tell. So Ahmed Ibn Amr refuted him and said, “If you don’t leave this place, I am going to inform the Khalifa and he is going to slaughter you.” So when people came to Ahmed Ibn Amr and asked, “How could he not tell about the grains in your bag and how could he tell about the grains in our bag.” So Ahmed Ibn Amr said, “When you counted your grains your Qarin (or the jinn associated with you), he counted those grains and he informed the jinn (the Qarin) of the magician. But in my case I didn’t count, I put all the grains in my bag and came here.” So these people take the help of the jinn to know the unseen and if they inform you the purpose of the visit, the number of rooms in your house, the relatives in your house, your family members and so on then he is a magician, he is not a Muslim.
Sahih al-Bukhari -> Medicine: Narrated ‘Aisha: Some people asked Allah’s Apostle about fore-tellers. He said. ‘They are nothing” They said, “O Allah’s Apostle! Sometimes they tell us of a thing which turns out to be true.” Allah’s Apostle said, “A jinn snatches that true word and pours it into the ear of his friend (the fore-teller) (as one puts something into a bottle) The foreteller then mixes with that word one hundred lies.” [Sahih al-Bukhari 5762] [In book reference: Book 76, Hadith 76]
Sahih al-Bukhari -> Beginning of Creation: Narrated ‘Aisha: I heard Allah’s Apostle saying, “The angels descend, the clouds and mention this or that matter decreed in the Heaven. The devils listen stealthily to such a matter, come down to inspire the soothsayers with it, and the later would add to it one hundred lies of their own.” [Sahih al-Bukhari 3210] [In book reference: Book 59, Hadith 21]
Verily! We have adorned the near heaven with the stars (for beauty). And to guard against every rebellious devil. They cannot listen to the higher group (angels) for they are pelted from every side. Outcast, and theirs is a constant (or painful) torment. Except such as snatch away something by stealing and they are pursued by a flaming fire of piercing brightness. (Qur’an 37:6-10)
Abu Qatadah mentioned Allah’s Statement: “And We have adorned the nearest heaven with lamps,” (V. 67:5) and said, “The creation of these stars is for three purposes, i.e. as decoration of the (nearest) heaven, as missles to hit the devils, and as a sign to guide travelers. So, if anybody tries to find a different interpretation, he is mistaken and just wastes his efforts, and troubles himself with what is beyond his limited knowledge.” [Sahih Al-Bukhari, Vol. 4, Chap 3, P. 282]
We decided to start deciphering the “Knowing the unseen” trick because this is what the magicians normally start claiming and trying to prove to gain a person’s trust and awe. Magicians live off getting people to be awed at their so-called magic (deception skills); in short they do magic to gain fame and power. This can be seen when the magicians of Fir’aun were hyped because they were promised worldly materials and high positions by Fir’aun:
And so the sorcerers came to Fir’aun (Pharaoh). They said: “Indeed there will be a (good) reward for us if we are the victors.” He said: “Yes, and moreover you will (in that case) be of the nearest (to me).” (Qur’an 7:113-114)
Once you begin to feel at awe and trust their so-called ability to see the unseen; there is a higher chance of falling prey to everything they suggest to you and everything they do onwards. Remember what Allah says:
…And from these (angels) people learn that by which they cause separation between man and his wife, but they could not thus harm anyone except by Allah’s Leave. And they learn that which harms them and profits them not… (Qur’an 2:102)
The magicians think they are profiting but that is not the case. They are harming themselves because the ultimate harm as we have stated in our previous article is to lose one’s faith. It is true that these magicians could not harm anyone except by Allah’s leave; think about it! People are supposed to believe that only Allah knows the unseen yet many are going to the magicians to seek information of the unseen and believing in them. Allah has allowed this harm of losing faith to fall on these people who believe that the magicians know the unseen because they are undeserving of faith unless they repent a truly and sincerely. But those believers who believe firmly that only Allah who knows the unseen; then these believers will be guided by Allah.
Is not Allah Sufficient for His slave? Yet they try to frighten you with those (whom they worship) besides Him! And whom Allah sends astray, for him there will be no guide. And whomsoever Allah guides, for him there will be no misleader. Is not Allah All-Mighty, Possessor of Retribution? (Qur’an 39:36-37)
For him (the devil) it is decreed that whosoever follows him, he will mislead him, and will drive him to the torment of the Fire. [Tafsir At-Tabari] (Qur’an 22:4)
You might not see the effects of the harm the magicians and their followers have in this world, but trust us; in the Hereafter you will witness it fully. We believers believe in the unseen but we believe only Allah know the unseen. It is one of the traits of the believer in Surah Baqarah, 3rd Ayat to believe in the unseen, along with praying to Allah and giving spending for the sake of Allah. Destruction is sure to come to those who believe others know the unseen, praying to others and spending not for the sake of Allah but for others.116 - IARLG - MAGICIANS - Part 4; Date 13th May 2016; 5th or 6th Sha'ban 1437 (67 downloads)
