Witches on brooms, dracula, evil powers on Halloween night: this is the stuff of Halloween nightmares many Muslims think.
We often assume that magic does not exist and that cultural rituals associated with it (i.e. Halloween) have little real meaning or significance. The reality is quite different.
Magic is real. It does happen. Magic is declared haram by Islam. God speaks of magic in the Quran in a number of places. (See Quran 20: 56 to 76 and 2:102).
Magic has been used in the past and is still used by people for different purposes.
