Magic

Q:

What type of magic is permissible in Islam?

A:

Thank you for your question. Below is an answer to a question posed to Ayatullah Sistani on the matter:

 
Question: Is it permissible to use white magic which is employed for good and is the opposite of black magic which is used by evil persons?
 

Answer: Magic in all its shapes and forms is forbidden [even that which is used to undo magic] unless the matter rests upon a greater benefit such as saving the life of a respected person.
 

May you always be successful.

 
Regards
Zohair Ali.
