Ahmad Said Chitrori: Magic Like Shirk is Unreal

Allama Ahmad Said Chitrori was among the contemporary Islamic scholars who deny the reality of magic, and reject the belief that the Prophet (Sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam) was, God forbid, affected by a magic spell.

قرآن مقدس کا بیان ہے کہ جادو شرک و کفر ہے اور افک ہے اسکی کوئی حقیقت نہیں باطل ہے اسکی شرک کی طرح کوئی اصل نہیں

“The Holy Qur’an says that Magic is Shirk, Kufr and Ifk. It has no reality, it is false. Like Shirk, Magic is unreal.”

Reference: Qur’an Muqaddas aur Bukhari Muhaddis; p. 15

Regarding the narrations which speak of the Prophet (Sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam) having been bewitched by a magic spell, Allama Ahmad Said Chitrori says:
اس لحاظ سے جادو والی روایات خلاف قرآن اور توہیں رسالت پر مبنی ہیں
“The narrations about magic contradict the Qur’an and are tantamount to blasphemy against the Prophet” (p.119)

Allama Ahmad Said Chitrori has alluded to the Verses in the Holy Qur’an:

وَأَوْحَيْنَا إِلَىٰ مُوسَىٰ أَنْ أَلْقِ عَصَاكَ ۖ فَإِذَا هِيَ تَلْقَفُ مَا يَأْفِكُونَ
We inspired to Moses: “Throw your Staff,” and at once it devoured what they were falsifying. (7:117)

فَأَلْقَىٰ مُوسَىٰ عَصَاهُ فَإِذَا هِيَ تَلْقَفُ مَا يَأْفِكُونَ
Then Moses threw his Staff, and at once it devoured what they falsified. (26:45)

These Verses are explicit in revealing the fact that the Magic which the Pharaonic magicians had performed, dazzling the eyes of the spectators, was nothing but Ifk, or falsehood, having no reality.
