Treating an affliction of magic with magic


Question: What is the ruling of a man or woman going [to a magician] to break a magic spell? And is it sufficient just to recite soorah al-Baqarah? And what are the [legislated] supplications regarding that?

Response: It is not permissible to remedy [an affliction of] magic with magic itself, and it is not permissible to go to magicians to remedy [an affliction of] magic. Rather, the remedy for [an affliction of] magic is with the legislated ruqyah from the Qur.aan and the Sunnah, as well as the legislated supplications. [In addition], tried and tested medications are also used to treat [an affliction of] magic; there is no harm in using tried and tested permissible medication in conjunction with legislated ruqyah [to treat an affliction of magic].
