Question:

My question is, if "Satan is put
into chains" during the month
of Ramadan then why still some
people doing bad things such as
Sihr (magic) on others? It
happened to myself, my brother
and sister. I suspected that my
sister in-law had used magic on
us to disunite my family. I
suffer from terrible cough; non-
stop for 2 months while the
doctor could not detect
anything wrong even after the X-
ray was taken. The doctor even
thinks it so strange. The
situation even worse in the
house... very strange, our family
ties were affected, my brother
seems misguided. We cannot
discuss matters amicably. I
cannot complain to him that we
found Shirk things such as the
hair and nails kept hidden in
the house for the fear that he
would get angry. So why is it
possible for the Satan to help
the evildoers during the month
of Ramadan when Allah (SWT)
has said that this holy month
Satan is chained? Another
question: What is the ruling
according to Shariah when I
recite certain verses from the
al-Qur’an e.g. Surah Yaaseen,
Surah al-Hashr (21-24) Surah al-
Anbyaa (101-103), Surah al-
Mu'minoom (115-116) and Surah
Aal-Imraan (146) into my
drinking water for healing
purposes? I also understand
that the evildoers recite verses
of al-Qur’an to do magic on
others, so what is the ruling?
What is the ruling when I
perform a Salaat Hajah to
counter the evildoers by making
Du’a so Allah (SWT) punish the
evildoers here in this world? It
is my intention to reunite my
beloved family members. May
Allah Bless all good Muslims.

Fatwa:
All perfect praise be to Allah,
The Lord of the Worlds. I testify
that there is none worthy of
worship except Allah, and that
Muhammad is His slave and
Messenger, may Allah exalt his
mention as well as that of his
family and all his companions.

The Hadeeth you are asking
about is reported by Imaam Al-
Bukhari and Imaam Muslim with
the words: "When the month of
Ramadan comes, the gates of Paradise
are opened and the gates of the (Hell)
Fire are closed, and the devils are
chained."
Al-Qaadi Iyaadh said: “The
Hadeeth points out the great reward
and forgiveness that a person gets in
this month and that devils’ mischief
decreases much as if they were put in
chains.”
Al-Mubarakpoori reported
from al-Qurtubi that he
said: “If one objects saying why do we
see evil and sins happening in the
month of Ramadan while the devils are
chained, the answer is that the ratio of
sins falls a noticeable level from those
fasting persons who adhere to fasting
rules and do not violate the etiquette of
fasting on one hand and fulfilling its
conditions and other recommended
matters on the other. The Hadeeth
does not prove that evil and sins
disappear totally in this month since
the evil happens for many reasons other
than the devils such as bad habits, bad
people, etc.”

Therefore, it is not astonishing
to see someone getting involved
in magic or committing sins
during the month of Ramadan.
However, the problems you are
facing may not be due to
magic. The person who does
not fast and does not follow the
religion is more vulnerable
to magic and other kinds of evil
acts. So, we advise you to keep
on performing prayers and
reciting the supplications.
Reciting some portion of Qur'an
to seek cure is recommended
since the whole Qur'an contains
healing as Allah says (what
means): {And We send down from the
Quran that which is a healing and a
mercy to those who believe (in Islamic
Monotheism and act on it), …}
[17:82].
As for Salaat al-Haajah (prayer
of need) it is permissible
according to some scholars for
the Hadeeth reported by
Tirmithi, Ibn Maajah with a weak
chain that the Prophet said:

"Whoever is in need of something from
Allah or from someone else has to make
Wudu, make it perfectly, and then
perform two Rak’ah." Know that one
should not ask Allah for
anything that contains a sin or a
cutting of the kinship ties, etc.
Finally, we advise you and your
family to be steadfast on the
way of Taqwa (piety) and thus
you may protect yourselves
from evil eye and bad effects.
Also, we advise you to think
good of your brother and other
relatives and treat them kindly
and pleasantly. This may
develop into love and good
relations amongst you and keep
you away from Satan.

Allah knows best.
