A Fortune-teller Said That Her Marriage Will Be Miserable! by iamgenius(m): 12:51am On Dec 15, 2017


My mother recently went to a fortune teller (which she is definetly not supposed to because it's haraam) and she was telling me that the fortune teller said that i will have a bad life if i marry my soon-to-be husband and that we will not stay together for more than 2 years.... i know that only Allah knows the future but i've been really worried by what she said....and what can i do to potentially "reverse"this from happening.... really i'm so confused i don't know what to think.




Praise be to Allaah.

Firstly:

May Allaah reward you for your belief that Allaah alone knows the unseen – this is what we hope for you and for every sincere Muslim woman – and this is one of the essentials of faith in Allaah Alone.
But we wonder how, after saying this, you can be afraid of one who knows nothing of the unseen?
You have to be assured and put your trust completely in Allaah, for nothing will happen to you except that which has been decreed by Allaah.

Secondly:

The ruling on fortune-telling, i.e., soothsaying, and claiming to know the unseen, is that these are actions which condemn a person to Hell and put him beyond the pale of Islam.

Thirdly:

Fortune-tellers cooperate with the jinn; they are liars who cooperate with the shayaateen (devils), who do not help them except after they have changed their religion, and whoever changes his religion [leaves Islam] is to be executed. The ruling concerning those who go to them and believe them is that they are guilty of kufr; if they do not believe them, their prayers will still not be accepted from them for forty days.
The evidence (daleel) for the former is the hadeeth of Abu Hurayrah, according to which the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “Whoever goes to a fortune-teller and believes what he says, has disbelieved in what was revealed to Muhammad.” (Narrated by al-Tirmidhi, 135; Abu Dawood, 3904; Ibn Maajah, 639; Ahmad, 9252. The hadeeth was classed as saheeh by al-Haakim (1/49), and al-Dhahabi agreed with him. Al-Haafiz ibn Hajar said, it has two corroborating reports narrated by al-Bazzaar with good isnaads. See al-Fath , 10/217)
The evidence (daleel) for the latter is the report from one of the wives of the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him), who said: the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “Whoever goes to a fortune-teller and asks him about anything, his prayers will not be accepted for forty days.” (Narrated by Muslim, 2230).

Fourthly:

How the fortune-teller gets his “information” was explained in the hadeeth narrated by Abu Hurayrah, in which the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “When Allaah decrees a matter in heaven, the angels beat their wings in submission to His words, making a sound like a chain striking a rock. When the fear is banished from their hearts, they say, What is it that your Lord has said? They say: The truth, and He is the Most High, the Most Great. Then the one who is listening out hears that, and those who are listening out are standing one above the other” – Sufyaan [one of the narrators] demonstrated with his hand, holding it vertically with the fingers outspread. – “So he hears what is said and passes it on to the one below him, and that one passes it to the one who is below him, and so on until it reaches the lips of the soothsayer or fortune-teller. Maybe the meteor will hit him before he can pass anything on, or maybe he will pass it on before he is hit. He tells a hundred lies alongside it, but it will be said, Did he not tell us that on such and such a day, such and such would happen? So they believe him because of the one thing which was heard from heaven.” (narrated by al-Bukhaari, 4424).

Fifthly:

When the Shaytaan listens out to hear what the angels say to one another about the decree of Allaah, this is part of the knowledge of the seen, it does not not mean that the shayaateen have knowledge of the unseen. Then they add a hundred lies to that word, such as when a fortune-teller says that So and so will give birth to a boy, and the people see that he was right about that so they believe in him, but he adds lies about the child, saying that he will get married in such and such a year and will die in such and such a year and other such details. So he gains a high stature in people’s hearts and they seek to get close to him by bringing him gifts and money, and he makes a profession out of these lies when the people believe in him, and so he makes a living by haraam means.

Sixthly:

Not every fortune-teller is a kaahin (soothsayer). He may be a geomancer or reader of coffee-cups, because the kaahin, unlike the others, is one who receives information from the jinn. The others are just liars, but the same ruling applies to them, because they claim to have knowledge of the unseen, although the kaahin who cooperates with the shayaateen is more of a kaafir because the kufr of fortune-telling is compounded by the kufr of his interacting with the shayaateen, who do not give him what he wants until after he directed some acts of worship towards them in a manner which takes him out of Islam.

Seventhly:

You have to advise your mother not to go anywhere near these liars, lest she falls into sin or her good deeds are wiped out. Do not give up the idea of marriage, because marriage brings many benefits. It is an important matter which is part of the fitrah (natural inclinations of man) and of the religion. Your life will not be miserable, in sha Allaah; be optimistic and hope for a good and happy life. We ask Allaah to join you with a husband who is knowledgeable and righteous.

If something bad happens, and you marry someone with whom you are miserable, this is because of the decree of Allaah (qadaa’ and qadar), not because of what the accursed fortune-teller said or because he knows the unseen. This may happen as a test or trial. In any case, going ahead with the marriage – in addition to its own great benefits – will be a way of snubbing these liars and fortune-tellers, and those who believe in them. May Allaah help us and you to do all that is good.

May Allaah bless our Prophet Muhammad.

This is common among some of our Yoruba Alfas. Being an alfa is similar to Babalawo. They use rosary, Qur'an, sand, cup, Jin, etc to guess what will happen to people.

They are truly Kaafir liars and scammers.

At least,the above is coming from you people now. I can therefore see reasons why those who want to quite your religion are very scared to...At least,since nairaland want to make me a Muslim forcefully, I should be able to comment on your trends.

Wetin Yoruba Alfas do you all on nairaland. Tell me a tribe that is free from shirk

U talk from both sides of your mouth on your little experience without experiencing other tribes or try to learn or make a logical decision. we have tens of sects in the North and nobody criticises them, I have seen alot of activities in the North worse than what I see in the Yoruba land

anyway. Only Allah knows best and have knowledge over everything. May he continue to guide us and make us a better Muslim and Muslimah

same statement I used to hear. I expect your moniker should reflect from your comment but it is a pity. Have i ever been against being a good Muslim,being a slave of Allah etc. But I only pointed out the rampant criticism of Yoruba Muslims while ignoring the atrocities of other tribes. I will still continue to ask the question,show me a perfect tribe,and if u cannot,stop criticising Yoruba Muslims

start criticising all shirk that some Muslims do that aren't limited to the Yoruba land. hope this explanation can enter your skull and let your moniker reflects in your level of understanding.

All cultures may have their flaws but I talked about what I know. Fortune telling, charms, amulets, belief in omens cum superstitions, magic black soaps, etc are common. The scammer Alfas too are around.

As simple as ABC. Actually,I reacted to your comment which shouldn't have attracted my response initially just because I have seen people here on nairaland saying Yorubas are d worst and they never had contact with other tribes before

Your problem is, you don't understand what it means when we say most things about the Yoruba culture is shirk, we are not talking about another culture being better....we are talking about the Yoruba, if other culture is 0% shirk its not our concern right now, we are talking about Yoruba culture.......another garbage you spew is we are generalizing, its also shows you don't understand what is being said at all, we are not saying most Yorubas practice this today, rather we are talking about the ancient cultures, not the people....to understand better, remove Islam from Yoruba land and practice Yoruba way of life only, I guarantee you'll be swimming in shirk.....

Where have I insulted you? Oh where I said your brain should process things right? Sorry man, that wasn't an insult but an advice which you sadly didn't put to use...

You want to attack people yet don't understand what they are saying...

I only quoted you because you referred to me in your post by referring to the last thread we met, so I'm only explaining what were saying one more time since the other day your brain couldn't process what were saying perhaps you would today, but sadly your brain is still in.the same state....
