Alhamdulillah! All Praise be to Allah! I was thinking on some other lines but ended up writing this!
For once let your soul wander
On that road seldom taken
They say there’s magic on it
For those sleeping, oft awaken
It’s famous yet it’s unknown too
Maybe we’re just mistaken
They say it changes faces not
But hearts are surely shaken
People of past, the souls of great
All have that road taken
On it have walked great warriors and Kings…
Alas! It’s now forsaken!
Great mystery though it still does hold
It may seem strange to you and I
They deem it strange, nor dark, nor cold
Those who possess The Inward Eye
Some go there just to find themselves
Some go there for enlightenment
But one thing common in them all
Is they enjoy the time they spend
Some call it the Path to God
Some call it Siraat-e-Mustaqeem
But the thing that brings them in accord
Is that you find it ONLY in THE DEEN!
بسم اللہ الرحمن الرحیم
Fabricated Narration No. 2:
“Learn witchcraft (sihr), but do not use it”.
This narration is false and has no basis. It is not permissible to learn witchcraft or to use it. It is an evil action and is kufr and misguidance. Allaah clearly stated that witchcraft is forbidden in His Book, where He 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 mm 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. And if they had believed and guarded themselves from evil and kept their duty to Allaah, far better would have been the reward from their Lord, if they but knew!”
[Al-Baqarah 2: 102-103]
In these verses, Allaah clearly states that witchcraft is kufr and that it is from the teachings of the devils. Allaah has condemned them for that, and they are our enemies. And He has stated that teaching witchcraft is kufr and that it is harmful and not beneficial, so we must beware of it.
