Once, someone said to Hazratjee Moulana Maseehullah Khan Saaheb (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) that a woman was badly affected by sihr (black magic). Hazrat replied: “I am not an ‘aamil but I will make du‘aa that Allah Ta‘ala relieve her of whatever sickness she may have.”

Thereafter he advised them as follows: “Clear your mind of any thoughts of jaadoo (black magic). Otherwise no matter how much of treatment you may do, it will all be insufficient. Nowadays there are signs of this sickness but, more so, it is in people’s minds. Part of it is related to this sickness but most of it is just in the mind.”

“Many people have also started doing this ta’weez work. They then stir up people by saying, ‘You have jaadoo and you are possessed by a jinn, etc.’ Some people even end up going to Hindus for treatment. The biggest weakness within us is weakness in our yaqeen (conviction).” (Hazrat Moulana Maseehullah Khan Saaheb [rahmatullahi ‘alaih] – A Brief Biography, pg. 213)
