Wife practising witchcraft on her husband

Wife practising witchcraft on her husband
I have divorced my wife and married another one, at the time of intercourse I felt something strange like black magic (siher) was done to me.
I have consulted a SHIKH and he gave me a strange prescription.
My questions are :

why couldn’t I have intercourse with my new wife ?
What is the ruling on that SHAIKH who is not using Quran to cure people from black magic (siher) ? I need your FATWA jazakum Allah khyara


Praise be to

The answer is: 

If your old wife admitted
doing this or it is definitely proven that she did it, then she has
committed a great evil, indeed it is kufr and misguidance, because what
she did was forbidden sihr (witchcraft or magic), and the one who does
that is a kaafir, as Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning): 

“They followed what the Shayaateen
(devils) gave out (falsely of the magic) in the lifetime of Sulaymaan
(Solomon). Sulaymaan did not disbelieve, 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. And indeed
they knew that the buyers of it (magic) would have no share in the Hereafter.
And how bad indeed was that for which they sold their ownselves, if
they but knew” [al-Baqarah 2:102] 

This aayah indicates that
witchcraft is kufr and that the one who practices it is a kaafir. Those
who practice witchcraft learn that which harms them and does not benefit
them. One of their aims is to separate man and wife, and they will have
chance before Allaah on the Day of Resurrection – i.e., they will have
no hope of salvation. According to a saheeh hadeeth narrated from the
Messenger of Allaah

(peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him), he said, “Avoid the seven
things which will lead to doom.” He was asked, “What are they, O Messenger
of Allaah?” He said: “Associating anything with Allaah; witchcraft;
killing a soul whom Allaah has forbidden us to kill unlawfully; consuming
riba (usury, interest); consuming the orphan’s wealth; fleeing the battlefield;
and slandering chaste but innocent believing women.” 

With regard to the shaykh
who gave you the remedy, it appears that he is a practitioner of witchcraft
like the woman, because no one knows about actions of witchcraft except
others who do the same. He is also one of the fortune-tellers and soothsayers
who are known for their claims to know many matters of the unseen. The
Muslim must beware of them and not believe their claims to know the
unseen, because the Prophet

(peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “Whoever comes to
a fortune-teller and asks him about anything, his prayers will not be
accepted for forty days.” (Narrated by Muslim in his Saheeh).
And the Prophet

(peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “Whoever comes to
a fortune-teller or soothsayer and believes what he says has disbelieved
in that which was revealed to Muhammad

(peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him).”  So you have to repent
and regret what you have done, and tell the head of the organization
and the head of the court about this shaykh and your old wife, so that
the court and organization will take action to deter them.  If
something like this happens to you again then ask the scholars of sharee’ah
to tell you of the remedy prescribed in sharee’ah. If what happened
to you has now gone, then praise be to Allaah, otherwise let us know
so that we can tell you of the remedy prescribed in sharee’ah. May Allaah
bless you and us with understanding of Islam and steadfastness in our
religion, and may He keep us safe from that which goes against it, for
He is the Most Generous, Most Kind. 

And peace be upon you and
the mercy of Allaah and His blessings.
