The Qur’an and the Hadith discuss the reality of black magic, evil eye and possession by jinn. In this webinar, we will shine a light on the important differentiation between depression, mental illnesses and actual magic or demonic possession.
Join us in understanding this difference in light of authentic Islamic teachings. We will also cover the ways of taking precautions against these dangerous afflictions and if afflicted, how to seek cure for them in a way sanctioned by the Qur’an and Sunnah.
