Black Magic, Evil eye


Assalam o Alaikum,
I am at the lowest point in my life, everything is going down hill so much. Nothing is working out. I am loosing hope in life and people. I think it is the result of all evil eye and black magic done on me, because no matter how much I try to do well in life, it just doesn’t work out. In the past too it has made me do things which I never would have done. My past is traumatizing me so much. My health was affected in the past and it still is. I am suffering from so many medical issues. I don’t know if my life can ever get better. I am just scared about everything now. I don’t know if I will just loose myself and everyone. Because I don’t see things getting better. I have been trying to read holy verses and at times offer Nafal or namaz. I really have been trying everything in my control but nothing seems to be working out at all. What should u do? I get suicidal thoughts but I know that’s not the solution to anything but again nothing that I desire is getting fulfilled, I am just slowing loosing everything. Please guide me


Wa-alaykum Assalam

Thank you for your email. I am sorry to hear about all the bad things that are happening to you. Reciting the Holy Qur’an is one of the best ways to ward off such issues and I understand you have been doing your best to do so. Persistance is key.

We highly recommend, however, given your circumstances, to reach out for professional through the networks you trust. Suicidal ideation is as you have said is not the answer, but given you mentioned this, you should definetly seek some help with regards to this.

Sometimes, the light at the end of the tunnel is just around the corner. Please dont give up.
