In the Name of Allāh, the Ever Merciful, the Bestower of Mercy
I am afflicted with magic and went to a magician to cure me from the magic afflicting me, what is the ruling upon me? Answer:
It is not permissible to go to a magician, magic is not cured with magic, rather magic is cured by ruqyah al-sharʿiyyah, the noble Qurʾān, some permissible medicines and supplications [to Allāh]. So do not go to the magicians to cure you from magic but rather utilise the permissible medicines, supplications [to Allāh], reciting the Qurʾān, and Ruqyah until Allāh cures you. Question:
How about my going to the magician in the first place, what is the ruling upon that? Answer:
Upon you is to repent to Allāh, and do not repeat this act again. Shaykh Ṣālīḥ ibn Fawzān al-FawzānSource: الذهاب إلى السحرةTranslated by: Munīb al-Ṣumālī
In this comprehensive admonishment by Mūsá Richardson, he explains many details with regards to the issue of magic. The one who practices or is pleased with magic has disbelieved in Islām.

An important lecture on the topic of magic, more specifically how it has found its way into Muslim homes by way of books, video games and other media, usually under the guise of fiction and educational benefit. The evil characteristics of magic are outlined with examples from the Qurʾān and the Sunnah in addition to an analysis of the Harry Potter phenomena (a magic-laden fictional trilogy) which has grasped the attention span of children around the world with remarkable ability.

A khuṭbah that took place at Masjid al-Furqān (TROID) on Oct. 24th 2014. The sermon discusses the reality of Halloween; its celebration of the Shayṭān and clear opposition to Tawḥīd. The second part of the khuṭbah discusses the Khawārij (renegades) and the fallacy of the IS (the alleged Islamic State) in Syria, and it's corrupt and misguided leader al-Baghdādī. The speaker incurs the audience to ignore their propaganda videos and to know that the Scholars of Islām have exposed and condemned the murderous al-Baghdādī.
