What should I do according to shariah?


Assalamualaikum! I am unmarried engineer suffering from black magic, sehr( confirmed after listening to ruqyah -quranic ayats concerning jinn, black magic) and under the influence of black magic, jinn( which appear in front of me naked) when my desire for sex increase i resort to hot, erotic videos and then afterwards to porn and masturbation. This started in 2014. Earlier the frequency was more and now in 2017 it is less. I told my parents that i want to do nikah because I am involved in sins. But they said many people are involved in sins unless black magic is cured we won’t get you married because it will get transferred to my wife and children. My health is deteriorating and I am becoming physically weak due to masturbation. I don’t want to do but I am already addicted to watching such videos, even girls and women when I go out for duty to earn or for some work. Nikah is the only halal way. Now my sexual desire has decreased and lust also. What should I do according to Shariah? I am ready physically weak. If I don’t do nikah I know I will continue to do sins which will make me more weak and create more problems for urgently nikah and take me away from the right way. I fear that the sins will lead me to hell, whereas troubles after nikah due to black magic will long till death only. Please guide me


Waalaykum al-Salam

Thank you for your question.

I am sorry to hear of your situation. May Allah help you through this.

I must also admit that  things related to Ruqya and the like are out of my expertise and knowledge

To begin with, the only way you can let yourself free from these issues is to keep away from sins. When a person sins, he is more controlled by his inner Satan, that is his whims and an outer Satan who encourages him more into indulging in sinning even more.

To be honest brother, your life is yours, it is only you who can make the best choices to make it a good one. People around you can only help you by sharing their thoughts, guiding you and encouraging you. but the real action will have to come from yourself!

You only need to make that one decision and take it from there. Simultaneously, you must pray five times a day, recite Quran with an understanding of the translation, and make plenty of dua. Making dua and speaking to Allah in plenty will half solve your issue.

Try and keep busy. Don’t sit alone, make sure you are always among people, and keep away from gadgets with the internet when going to sleep. Get rid of extra energy by doing exercise and adopting a new sport or working better on a skill you already have. These suggestions will demand a lot of your time and you will not have more energy to indulge in the wrong things.

The journey to transition may sound long and tiring and probably is, but it’s not impossible! One step towards Allah and He will come ten steps towards you. All you need to do is keep trying and get back on the track. No matter how many times you fail or feel disheartened.

Allah Says in the Holy Qur’an

قُلْ يَا عِبَادِيَ الَّذِينَ أَسْرَفُوا عَلَىٰ أَنْفُسِهِمْ لَا تَقْنَطُوا مِنْ رَحْمَةِ اللَّهِ ۚ إِنَّ اللَّهَ يَغْفِرُ الذُّنُوبَ جَمِيعًا ۚ إِنَّهُ هُوَ الْغَفُورُ الرَّحِيمُ

Meaning: Say [that Allah declares,] ‘O My servants who have committed excesses against their own souls, do not despair of the mercy of Allah. Indeed Allah will forgive all sins. Indeed, He is the All-forgiving, the All-merciful.

Therefore, Allah is ready to give us as many chances as possible, He neither gets tired nor does He mind what you come with. All He wants is that you to come back to HIM.

So, here is your chance brother, straighten these out and He will bless you with a wonderful wife and pious children inshaAllah.

In the end, I will suggest you recite Ziarat Ashura, Ayatul Kursi, and Four Quls in plenty.

May Allah bless you with the best,
