1. Argument Qur’an

Allah subhanahu wa ta’ala says:

Have you not seen those who were given a portion of the Book? They believe in jibt and Evil, and say to the unbelievers (polytheists of Mecca), that way they are better than the people who believe. (Q.S. an-Nisa ‘: 51)

2. The U.S. argument Sunnah

Narrated from Mu’awiyah bin Al Hakam as Sulami, he said: “When I pray with the Prophet sallallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam, suddenly there is someone who sneezes. I said:’ Yarhamukallaah (may Allah merahmatimu). ‘People looked at me. I said: ‘Unfortunately my mother, why are you looking at me like that?’. they were clapping hands to the thighs. Having understood that they told me to be quiet, so I was silent. Upon the Prophet completed the prayer, then by God, I never mu’allim see a before and after teaching better than him. sake of Allah, he does not raise his voice, do not hit me and do not despise me. He just said: ‘Verily prayers should not be mixed with human conversation. worship prayer should only be filled with thanksgiving prayer beads , Takbir and reading the Qur’an. “Or as he said. I said: ‘O Messenger of Allah, verily I recently converted to Islam. Allah has revealed this religion to us. Surely among us there are those who go quack’. He replied: ‘Do not go quack!’. ‘Among us there are those who love bertathayyur *’, I said. Messenger of Allah said: ‘It’s just something that comes to their heart, then do not until they suspend intention therefore’. then I proceed: ‘ ‘Amongst us there are those who practice the art of prediction. “He replied:’ There used to be the prophet who uses the art of prediction. When that happens according to his predictions, then it is just a coincidence ‘…………. (Reported by Muslim)
Tathayyur is unfortunate assumption because he saw or heard something, for example, saw a certain bird or hear some animal sounds. Tathayyur is something that comes to your heart, it is not such a reproach upon you, but if it is disgraceful that tathayyur arrest of activity.

It was narrated from Safiyyah bint Abi Ubaid radhiyallaahu ‘anha, the wife of one of the Prophet sallallaahu’ alaihi wa sallam, that he said: “Whoever came fortuneteller and asks him about something and he justify it, then his prayer is not accepted for forty nights” ( Narrated by Muslim)


a. Baghawi Imam al-Sunnah said in Syarhus: “Kahin is people who predict what will happen, claimed to know the cause of supernatural and the unseen master. Past, among the Arabs there are witch doctors who claim to know the unseen matter. Anyone claim to being the leader jin and some are claimed to have a ‘whisperer’ who delivered the news to him. Among them are those who claim to know a lot of things through the ‘intelligence’ has. ‘Arraf is a person who claims to know many things by using cues to indicate where goods stolen or lost goods. example, there is a woman who committed adultery and the people asked him who committed adultery with her? Then he told them. And some similar cases. Among them are some who call it quack astrologers “.

I said: “Including cases is forbidden fortune telling by throwing pebbles, astrology (augury / astrology), the art of prediction by looking at the hand line, fortune telling with lines, divining water in a bowl or glass or the like, all of it including shamanistic practices “.

b. Threats and punishment meted out differently, there is no accepted his prayer and there are infidels convicted. All of it according to the following breakdown: If he went to the shaman without justifying his words, then the punishment is not acceptable prayer for forty nights. If he justify saying that shaman, then he is a disbeliever and irrespective of the religion revealed to Muhammad sallallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam. Because it will not meet the shaman speech justifying faith (kufr).

c. Al-Hafiz Ibn Hajar in the book Fat-hul Baari al-Khaththabi quoting remarks as follows: “The shaman is a person who has a sharp brain, the liver is evil and harsh nature. Satan like to make friends with them because it has similarities in cases -the case. devil and likes to help them with their efforts Sedaya “.

d. Prophet sallallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam has explained about why the news was delivered by the shaman was sometimes true, the goal that the people are not fooled by them.

It was narrated from ‘A’ishah radhiyallaahu’ anha, he said: “People asked the Prophet sallallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam about news delivered quacks”. He answered: “The news was a lie”. They said: “O Messenger of Allah, verily news they convey that sometimes correspond to reality?”. He replied: “That is the truth that was stolen by the genie, * then whispered into his ear, and then he mixed up, a hundred lies”. (Bukhari and Muslim)
* That is delivered and whispered to his followers then heard enumerated by Satan, as chickens are communicating with each other couples.
