Magic is a hidden force which gives the impression of something happening when in reality is not actually happening. Envy is lack of contempt with the decree and power of Allah, and we are asked to be content with what he gives us.
This thorough research proves that magic harms and does not benefit anyone. The book explains the existence of the unseen forced we experience and the magic of the eye caused by the magician which in fact is all a deception of the sight. Shaytaan inspires the magician persuading them of his knowledge of the unseen or to the prediction of the future. However, if the shaytaan’s did have power for example he could have saved himself and his tribe from prophet Suleimans punishment.
We know that although magic and envy are among the hidden forces of existence they are forces whose existence is very real and about which Allah almighty has told us. In his noble Quran Allah has asked us to seek refuge with him from magic and envy by reciting Surat Al-Falaaq and An Nas every night for protection.
