It is possible for witchcraft to come between a man and his wife?

is possible for witchcraft to come between a man and his wife?
I am asking whether it is true that some one makes what
we call (Hojob) in Arabic to make other peole fail in their lifes.
I dont know if you understand what I mean or not. I
will give you an example, I was told that some people dont like others, so
what they do,they go to specialized people and ask them to do something by
the help of the (Jin) or whatever and make the life of that person
misery,like makes him fail in his life or ....... I dont know whether this
is available truley or not .
please give me an answer


Praise be to Allaah.

The correct view according to the majority of Ahl
al-Sunnah is that witchcraft or magic is real and that it can have an effect
– if Allaah wills and decrees it – on the body of the one against whom
it is directed, and it could even kill him.

Imaam al-Quraafi said: “Witchcraft is real and the
person against whom it is directed could die, or his mood and habits could
be changed… This was also the view of al-Shaafa’i and Ibn Hanbal…” (al-Furooq,

The Mu’tazilah and Qadariyyah did not agree with
this… but that is of no significance. Al-Quraafi and others mentioned that
the Sahaabah agreed that it (witchcraft) is real, before there emerged
anybody who denied this.

Among the evidence of Ahl al-Sunnah is:

The aayah (interpretation of the meaning):

“but the Shayaateen (devils) disbelieved, teaching
men magic and such things that came down at Babylon to the two angels,
Haaroot and Maaroot, but neither of these two (angels) taught anyone (such
things) till they had said, “We are for trial, so disbelieve not (by
learning this magic from us).” 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 Allaah’s Leave. And they learn that which
harms them and profits them not.” [al-Baqarah 2:102]

This aayah clearly indicates what is being asked about
here, which is that witchcraft is real and that the practitioner of
witchcraft can cause separation between a man and his wife and that he can
cause harm to people by his witchcraft – if that is decreed by the
universal will of Allaah.

The aayah (interpretation of the meaning):

“And from the evil of the witchrafts when they blow in
the knots” [al-Falaq 113:4]

‘the witchcrafts when they blow in the knots’ refers
to witches or female practitioners of witchcraft who tie knots as part of
their magic and blow on them. If witchcraft were not real, Allaah would
not have commanded us to seek refuge from it.

Further proof is to be seen in the fact that witchcraft
was directed against the Prophet
(peace and blessings of Allaah be
upon him) by the Jew Labeed ibn al-A’sam. This is a saheeh hadeeth
which was narrated by al-Bukhaari and Muslim.

Further evidence is to be seen in the real-life
experiences of many people, which cannot be overlooked.

Ibn al-Qayyim said: the witchcraft which causes people to
be sick or to feel depressed, or which makes them love or hate, exists and
is well known to all people. Many people have experienced what it can do to
them.” (al-Tafseer al-Qayyim, p. 571).

Ibn Qudaamah said: “It is well known among people that a
man can be separated from his wife (by witchcraft) when he gets married, so
that he is unable to have intercourse with her, but when the spell is
lifted, then he is able to have intercourse with her. This is so commonly
known that it cannot be denied. There are so many reports of witchcraft that
it is inconceivable that so many people would agree on a lie.” (al-Mughni,

There are many ways of protecting oneself against

The best way is to fear Allaah, obey His commands, put one's
trust in Him, seek refuge with Allaah, and start each morning by eating
seven dates. All of these were narrated in saheeh ahaadeeth.

There are many ways of removing the effects of witchcraft,

Ruqyah [prayers, supplications], the best of which
is supplications from the Qur’aan, then du’aa’s narrated in saheeh

Finding the objects used for witchcraft purposes and
doing something to neutralize them.

Ibn al-Qayyim (may Allaah have mercy on him) said: the
Sunnah for treating this sickness – two kinds were transmitted from him:

One of them – which is the best – is to locate and
neutralize the object, as it was reported in a saheeh hadeeth that he

(peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) asked his Lord about that, and
He directed him to a well where he found a comb, some hairs that had
fallen when he combed his hair ….…. When he removed these things from
the well, he felt better, as if he had recovered from an illness. This is
this is the best way of dealing with this problem, and is like removing
something bad from the body by expelling it.

Cupping, induced vomiting and surgery.

Ibn al-Qayyim said – continuing what he said in the
words quoted above: “The second kind is by physically removing the place
affected by the witchcraft, because witchcraft has an effect on human
nature and the bodily humours, and can affect moods. If its effects are
noted in any part if the body and it is possible to remove the bad
material, this will be very beneficial.” (Zaad al-Ma’aad,
4/124, 125).

And Allaah knows best.
