Reading the horoscope pages


at-Tamheed li-Sharh Kitaab at-Tawheed – v1, p349

Shaykh Saalih Aal ash-Shaykh warned against reading horoscope pages, as he said:

And if he read this [horoscope] page – whilst knowing his astrological sign – the one in which he was born, and he read what was written therein, then it is as if he has asked a fortune teller.

[That being the case], then his prayer will not be accepted for 40 days. And if he believed what was [written] in these stars, then he has disbelieved in what was revealed to Muhammad ﷺ.
