wife death due to black magic


My wife passed away a week after delivering a beautiful baby Girl, a priest told me that she had suffered due to asrath, and it took her life, she could have lived long. He says she is still trapped by the asrath since she had years to live.


Assalamu Alaykum

Thank you for your question.

im so sorry to hear about your loss.
may Allah make it easy on you and you’re able to  raise your daughter in the best way and under the protection of Allah (az).

i wonder what you really mean by ‘asarath’ and  priest? And by priest you mean a Muslim scholar??

on a General note, when a person dies s/he is in a different realm where material causes do not have an effect and meaning. Like one cannot mean a material evil on the other if s/he is dead. what really shows it’s true colors there is the charity that and Duas that one makes from this world for his or beloved.
Also, if one died because of evil casting upon her, then she certainly is in better hands now. A realm where no worldly harm can hurt her.

On a side note, I’d suggest you to disregard such talks and concentrate on your life. These kind of unknown things may make one feel helpless and   Hopeless. Like he is controlled. Whereas, Allah has blessed the human with ‘choice’ and using the same power he can pull all the good and enjoy his life.

if you look at the demise of your wife as is, then in Islam she is known to be raised with the Martyrs (mustadrak al-Wasail, vol 115, 214) and Martyrs according to the Holy Quran never die and enjoy special bounties from Allah (swt)

وَلَا تَحْسَبَنَّ الَّذِينَ قُتِلُوا فِي سَبِيلِ اللَّهِ أَمْوَاتًا ۚ بَلْ أَحْيَاءٌ عِنْدَ رَبِّهِمْ يُرْزَقُونَ

Do not suppose those who were slain in the way of Allah to be dead; no, they are living and provided for near their Lord,

hence, make special dua for her and raise your daughter with the fact that she had a brave mummy, who is now very special to ALLAH because of her sacrifice and station.
