Question 362: We have noticed the spread of conjuration especially in university areas and on beaches during summer vacation. I was once on a beach and when I entered my colleagues’ tent, I ridiculed what they were doing. Nevertheless, a glass suddenly moved and displayed my first name, my surname, etc. I, thus, believed in conjuration for a period of time. Please give the scientific and Islaamic explanation for such a phenomenon? What is the ruling on it, and on the person who practices it?
Answer: Conjuration is a satanic practice which involves using Jinn (creatures created from fire) in a way that contradicts Tawheed (belief in the Oneness of Allaah). This is because conjuration is only done through acts of Shirk (associating others with Allaah in His Divinity or worship). Beings who report such information as what is mentioned in the question are not souls. Rather, they are devils who declare this information to deceive people. No one can call souls except Allaah (Glorified and Exalted be He). Accordingly, it is Waajib (obligatory) to believe that conjuration is falsehood that must be rejected, not attended, and not accepted as truth... read more here.
