Going to and believing soothsayers


A2, 3, 4: It is Haram (prohibited) to go to soothsayers and to believe them. Accordingly, it is not permissible to visit this woman, who claims to know the Ghayb (Unseen), because she is a Kafir (disbeliever). It is not permissible to visit, ask questions of, or believe, this woman or other similar people, whether they practice medicine or not. The Prophet (peace be upon him) said, Anyone who visits a diviner and asks him about anything, their Salah (Prayer) will not be accepted for forty nights. Recorded by Muslim. (Part No. 1; Page No. 612) The Prophet (peace be upon him) also said, Anyone who resorts to a soothsayer and believes in what they say has disbelieved in what was revealed to Muhammad. (peace be upon him).May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
