Magic is performed by the magicians in many ways. Magician and person who uses magician’s help, are both bound to Satan and his demands. Black magic is performed on others by making victim drink or eat some food with curse placed on it, sometimes a cursed liquid is sprayed on a property or a cursed product, such as piece of paper, is placed in the property. They also require one of victim’s property for identification, such as; Picture, hair, comb or any other personal property. Shaytan’s helpers need victim’s belonging to confirm his identity, without it, it will be impossible to identify the victim.

If someone has been a victim of magician’s curse then he/she should ask Allah (SW) for assistance and help. It is very important to keep Quran & Sunnah in front as an example for prevention and treatment.
- Beloved wife of The Prophet Muhammad (May peace be upon him), Sayyida A’isha (Allah be pleased with her) narrates:
Whenever the Messenger of Allah (Peace be upon him) would become ill, he would recite the Mu’awwizat (Surah al-Falaq & Surah an-Nas) and blow over himself. When his illness was aggravated, I used to recite these two Surahs (and blow my breath) over him and make him rub his body with his own hand, for its blessings Sahih al-Bukhari No. 4728
Also, scholar Abdur Rauf Ben Halima describes the treatment in his video below according to Islam.
NOTE: If the problem persist, it is advisable to consult your nearest Imam for more instructions and further assistance.
