Salam aleikum, my brothers and sisters, not everything that happens to us should be blamed on superstition black magic. And the jinn, we need to understand that nine times out of 10 or 99 times out of 100. It has nothing to do with superstition, black magic, the jinn etc. And what is even more interesting is that the Almighty has taught us how to protect ourselves from being affected by black magic by the evil eye and a lot of superstitious items. Now, if we're not prepared to take the precautions, then obviously, you know, shape ban or the devil, Satan will tamper with our minds. So for that reason, it's important for us to spare a moment every morning and evening, to read those
passages of the Quran, where the Almighty has told us if you were to read them, then you will definitely be protected from the evil eye from the jinn kind from black magic from all sorts of superstitious issues that might be affecting man sometimes. So there are two things I want to speak about this evening. The first is, most of the difficulties we face can be explained by either medicine or by common logic or by some form of an explanation that will make sense to you. For example, those who have examination, sometimes they haven't been eating well, they haven't been sleeping well, they're very worried and concerned and suddenly, they start hearing voices, they
suddenly start seeing things. This has nothing to do with anything superstitious. But rather it has to do with the fact that you have allowed yourself to affect your body in a way that you have depleted the minerals and the vitamins, you have not given it rest, and you have been stressing so you are causing a slight chemical imbalance in the brain. And that is what causes you to hear these sounds and voices. And what we do is we immediately decide that this is magic, or this is perhaps someone doing something to me, we start looking at our family members whom we don't get along with perhaps our in laws, we start looking at people that we don't get along with and then we go to
someone whom we think is going to help us when it comes to the this particular thing. So we end up going to someone who is maybe considered a pious person or considered a scholar, sometimes even a person who might not be that but people have said look, go to this person because they do this type of thing. What those people do.
If they are genuine and legitimate, they will give you something to read from the scriptures from the Quran, they will pray for you. And they will they might tell you to get yourself a little bit of raw honey which helps you to maybe get yourself some dates called the ajwa dates and they will tell you how to have that they may give you a little bit of the black seed or black seed oil that is from the sooner from the practice of the Prophet peace be upon him. They may give you for example, the sacred water known as Zamzam water, they may give you
a few other things from the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So these are some of the the permissible or the sooner things that you could actually do to help yourself but they will tell you over and above that, you need to read the verses of Surah Al Baqarah, where the Prophet sallallahu Sallam has told us that that surah is so powerful that the devil cannot override it.
Some verse known as item QC, if you were to repeat it thrice in the morning, and in the evening. And once after every, every other prayer. So morning is the time of federal and evening, even if a female is excused from the five daily prayers, she still should be reading these in order to protect her because those are the days that it actually affects you even more. So you're supposed to read these sewers, or this verse at least thrice in the morning, thrice in the evening, once after every prayer and you read the last two suitors of the Quran, which is called out a bit of Bill Fela put out a bit of bananas thrice each and once after every other prayer. And if you want to add kulu
Allahu Ahad, you may do that as well. It is extremely beneficial, you can read that thrice as well. So these are some of the chapters of the Quran. It won't take you more than 10 minutes to do that. in the morning and in the evening. And after every prayer perhaps two to three minutes. If you're not prepared to actually do that, then you're the only one to blame
Because the Almighty is teaching you that if you want to save yourself from that, which is superstitious that which is
connected to the evil eye and magic and the jinn, etc, and you have to read this on a regular basis every single day without fail, morning and evening is more important. And then after every prayer once, you may read that, too. So a lot of people have, at the slightest problem rushed to do some who are bogus, and they don't know that these people are actually bogus. So to identify those who are bogus. Number one is, no matter what it is, they will, they will quickly tell you that you know what, someone has done something on you because obviously,
that's what will make you happy. And that's what that's what you will, you will actually look forward to hearing you were looking forward to here. Secondly, they will tell you that someone from your own family has done something to you from your extended family. And the reason why we get excited when we hear this is because every extended family has a little bit of politics a little bit of a problem, you will always have a little bit of an issue with one or two of the members of your extended family. If your level of faith is not high or strong enough,
you will falter by believing this. And that is very dangerous. So if they were to tell you anyone who's a fortune teller, which is obviously haram to go to in the first place, but anyone who is pretending to be a scholar who knows, if they tell you that someone from your own family did something to you, they are telling you a lie. Remember that because in order to know the unseen, the angel Gabriel has have to have meaning he would have to have come to you, the Angel jabril alayhi salam would have to have come to you. And he didn't. So how could you know the unseen? And people say, Well, you know, he's got a gin and he can tell? Well, the gin. You know, people believe that
there is good and bad genius, there are good and bad gin, but the good gin do not come anywhere near mankind. So those who think that
you know, this chef has a good gin that good gin is not a good gin, the Cher thinks that that chain is a good gin, but the gin lies lies completely. That's the job. That's the job of the devil, they would lie to you because the primary job is to destroy the family, when the family unit is destroyed. And when relationships are destroyed. The Devil's job is already half done, if not more. So don't believe anyone who tells you a member of the family has done something to you. Because that you have failed your test to believe someone who claims to know the unseen. The Prophet Muhammad says sallallahu alayhi wa sallam you have disbelieved in me, and whatever I came with, you have
disbelieved in what was revealed to me, if you believe that someone else knows the unseen. Now, this is very, very dangerous. That's why I decided to raise it today. Because it's extremely important for us to know that, don't rush to the conclusion that someone has done something to you or you're affected by something superstitious. Just because you have a headache, you might be you know, have hearing a voice or to you might be having a nightmare or to a lot of the times, look at the way you're eating. And perhaps you will find you're not eating, you know, healthy food, it's not a balanced diet, look at your wrist and your sleep, perhaps you have a problem with your sleeping
patterns and you're not sleeping correctly. Also look at the stress levels that you are going through at the time perhaps you are very stressed. Perhaps you have issues with that stress of yours. So and there are many other factors. Look at your you know, the other health matters. You might have a deficiency of some mineral in your body, a lot of the times zinc and magnesium, some of the vitamin B's sometimes vitamin D, and you feel lethargic, and you start thinking you know, someone's done something on me, I'm feeling lazy, I don't feel good. When you have a deficiency, it affects your mood, it affects the way you talk, it affects the way you think. Sometimes you get
nightmares, sometimes you can hear voices sometimes, you know you you see things and a lot of this, like I said 99 times out of 100 it's connected to a deficiency that you have, don't deny it, go for a blood test, go and checks. Again go and see something else to check a few more things. And so panela it's amazing how Allah subhanho wa Taala would open the doors of those who have firm faith and conviction in him. It is your faith, your conviction in the almighty that will give you the cure by the help and the will of the Almighty so keep trying. Also when we have a lot of baggage, like someone is stressing us, it within our our lives, or we take things too seriously. We start thinking
someone's done something on me. A lot of us have seen failure or people affecting us and so on. Sometimes marriages, you know, they don't work. Sometimes a person has had a proposal or two or three and maybe people are turning them down or they're not
Finishing off, which means, as we're talking about marriage, things break off. If it happens to you more than two, three times, what happens? The Devils way of taking you straight to the devil. So you go to someone, he starts writing things, when they write something that you don't understand. It's wrong. You it's supposed to be clear, number one, number two is you're supposed to be reading things. So more than writing something, you're supposed to be reading things. A lot of the times, if you were to read things,
it will not be report on as such order soon of the process of them, but it will be something strange and amazing. I've read some of these papers written by some of them, they're addressing the jinn. They're seeking the help of the jinn in these papers. Is that what you want, so they, you know, it takes a thief to catch a thief, they say, you might feel better. And this is why we say sometimes you have so called miracle recoveries, because you're feeling better the devil has made you feel good, I always give the example of a person who is struggling with earnings, they can either become rich by stealing, or they can work hard, and it will take a long time. If you steal your problem is
solved, you've actually done very, very well, because overnight, everything came right. But you've stolen so that is that will haunt you for the rest of your life. Because what you did was unacceptable. But if you want to do it the proper way, it will take a long time, but you will have to earn slowly but surely every month, and thereafter, you will be a person who can make it Mashallah manage. So it's up to you, even when it comes to health, you can actually steal the solution by doing it the wrong way, lose your faith in the Almighty, and go and get a so called miracle down to you where, wow, you know, and you blame someone. And so, miracles do happen,
definitely. But they only happen through the verses of the Quran, the Sunnah of the processes and the words of the Almighty, you need to know that. So it doesn't just happen by people throwing bombs at you asking you to cut lemons, asking you to actually do something strange, you know, take the rose petals of pink roses and pick 200 of them and lay them in a certain way and then take one and then cut each one of them. You know, they tell you that only because psychologically, it makes you feel that you've done a lot and that should be okay, so you start feeling better, just by hearing it, I found a lot of people on a diet. Listen to this, please, very carefully. A lot of people on
the diet, they start getting issues and problems. You know, when you have weight, my brothers and sisters, it's normal to have a little bit of overweight here and there. It's not a bad thing always. But if you want to deal with it, instead of starving yourself to death, where you're going to be affected negatively in your brain, your mind your thinking your emotions and everything, you draw the burn it out, do something vigorous in terms of exercise, you know, in terms of burning that fat, rather than starving yourself in a way that you're going to think something superstitious has gotten to you, you're going to break family ties and relations. And if this was all in the question of
getting a figure like a trigger, you've probably used that trigger in order to shoot everybody down, because that was the wrong way of doing things. My brothers, my sisters, remember this, when you have starved your body, it's abnormal. So if you want to, you should do something in a good way to help yourself with that particular health matter that you have. Rather than choose the bad route. This is a very important session. The reason is, many houses, many houses are affected by the false alarm. And as a result, families are broken. People believe stories, the innocent of being blamed and you know what, we've lost our faith. And we think we're holy and pious by praying a lot and so
on. If you're going to believe someone who has a nice long beard with a big turban or looks very, very religious, when they tell you matters of the unseen, like it's just, you know, 123 for them, it's a major issue. The thing is what a jinn can do is a jinn can tell you your whole past because it has a memory that is complete. It can also tell you the present, but it cannot tell you the future. So when these people intimidate you by letting you know a lot about your past, and you say wow, how does he know? I'm sure his gift. Well, the devil knows shavon knows, you see, there's no gift. If they have access to a gym, that's always an evil gym, then obviously, they will be telling
you something, but then they will tell you about the present something that you didn't tell them and you're like, wow, then when they get to the future, that's where they nail the coffin, the final nail and they know boom, we've got you straight in your coffin. So now they say, you know your sister in law did this your mother in law did this your auntie did this Yo Yo, this one did that someone else did that your daughter or whoever else it may be. It's a lie. They did not do that. Remember this? It's from the devil. And even if a man who appears to be religious told you that, where did he get it from? He caught it from the devil. If he tells you I got it from the gin, the
gin lie to him because that's the unseen they they're there now, after having told you the past and the present, they
Now informing you about future which is actually prohibited. And this is where the Prophet peace be upon him says if you're going to believe them, you've disbelieved in what I've brought, why, because I brought to you that Allah is the one who knows the unseen. So my brothers and sisters bear this in mind, it's breaking a lot of arms. And the sad part is there are people who appear to be religious who are doing this. And I think some of them who I've spoken to appear to be slightly innocent, because they haven't realized yet that the jinn they're dealing with is actually evil and lying to them. But if they had a bit of sincere knowledge, they would know that we we do not know the unseen,
we cannot believe a jinn a devil to tell you that you know what, this is what happened.
That is very dangerous. So as a result of you believing them, they then offer you this cure, because the gene knows exactly what's wrong with you. It knows which nerve is pinched, it knows what's happening. So it and pinches the nerve, you feel good, but you feel good. And what you did as a result is you just believe because you started blaming people, you start doing superstitious things. And can I tell you one last thing before I go, a lot of the times you don't have a problem. When you go to some of these people, they create a problem, they create a problem, and they make you dependent on them. So this is why I say when you want to solve your matter, be very careful when you
go to people, you may go for help. I mean, people come to me for help sometimes. And I actually have to sometimes let them know that you know what, I don't think that you're close enough to the Almighty, you're very distant. So you're getting closer to the devil. And that's why you're being affected by all this. And a lot of the times it's health matter. Like I said, it's a health matter. And what happens is, you need to know that when you go for help. Yes, you may go to someone you trust. But listen very carefully. The true people will give you something that is from the sun and the sun or something that is from the almighty revelation and so on, they will not lead you astray.
They will not be telling you that you know what? This one did that and you need to do this and you need to you need to make a sacrifice for this Goblin and that devil. All that is totally unacceptable. To believe in superstitious is ungodly in superstitions is ungodly. And what you need to know is it's change shifting you away from the Almighty. Don't believe people will say you need to sacrifice you know this for I know of people who've said dirtiest things that I cannot even make mention of here because it's so dirty, filthy not worth repeating. And I've seen people who actually do that. And my brothers and sisters, those who perpetrate in magic, those who do magic against
others. They've lost faith in God completely. And muslimeen have lost their Islam totally. Who the Hades is man Sahara Africa, Ashok, whoever has done magic. And whether it's a voodoo, whatever else it may be, they have indeed lost faith they have associated partnership with Allah, they can no longer call themselves believers. They need to repent and undo what they did. And it's dangerous because it comes back to haunt you. Remember, you do black magic on someone, it will come back to haunt you. Definitely. So you need to be very careful. Don't ever mess your reputation with the almighty by involving in such things. People do magic for so many reasons why let everything happen
with the Almighty is power. And we'll Why do you want to go and do that which will make you lose your faith in the Almighty. So sometimes people tie their hair they actually you know, put the pins they make these this little magical potions, whatever they're called. And they do things with them. All this is totally prohibited. Still I say a lot of what happens to us is not that so I spent a moment actually just warning everyone to save my brothers, my sisters. Let's be careful. Don't be so desperate for something that you have to result in, you know, doing black magic or going to someone and tell them listen, I don't mind what it is. But I need these two to divorce. I don't mind what it
is. But I have to marry this person. I mean, how can your marriage be based on magic and based on something that is unacceptable? How can you break someone be using that that means that is totally satanic. And we want to call ourselves believers. May the almighty protect us and grant us goodness and ease. And I end again I know I said it earlier but I it's a very important topic. Forgive me Excuse me for carrying one. I tell you don't ever blame people for having carried out something superstitious against you. That's a weakness of your Eman And you may just lose faith in the almighty completely. He is the knower of unseen no matter who told you that this person did it. They
don't know. No matter what type of evidence they've presented in front of you. It is knowledge of the unseen and their knowledge is flawed. Maybe Almighty protect us all I've seen homes breaking innocent people and I've had opportunities to speak to both sides sometimes or three sides and you see the innocence of
The people and you see that they were not involved and they're being blamed totally. That's a loss of a man. You're in the clutches of the devil for the rest of your life because it's destroyed your family that was the aim of Satan. He managed to do it and it's destroyed not just short term, but long, long term generations as well. May the almighty help us mend our relations. And may the almighty bless you all. I will be posting this up on YouTube shortly. So if you've missed it on here, you will be able to get it there does that Camilla Harris salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
