The Details of the Question

The Answer

Dear Brother / Sister,

1-Calling spirits comes from foreign countries. Its origin is not religion but philosophy.

2-The guest of the spirit calling session that introduce itself as a dead person’s spirit is not that person’s spirit , it is either one of the evil spirits or a jinn that helps devil.

3-The unknown guest of the session can damage the faith of the people that are there and the well-hearted people who hear the untrue declaration from them. For example, it can introduce itself as Mawlana’s spirit. In order to ensure trust on its words, it can read one or two couplets from Mawlana. However, after that it can try to present and indoctrinate the things away from Islam as if they are the words of Mawlana.

This issue is very important at this point: In a faithful dream, evil spirits and the devil cannot take the form of the Prophet. However, during the spirit calling session, perhaps it may give itself the name of the Prophet and then it may talk against Sharia laws (Islamic law) and illustrious practices. If its speech is opposed to Sharia laws and illustrious practices, it is the evidence that the speaker is not a good spirit. It is not a believer or a Muslim jinn. It is an evil spirit and imitates good spirits that way.

Badiuzzaman, who attracts attention to the danger of calling a dead person’s spirit like that, explains how one must get in touch with the spirits as follows:

With the verses “As also the evil ones, (including) every kind of builder and diver. As also the others bound together in fetters” (4) “And of evil ones, were some who dived for him, and did other work besides; and it was we who guarded them”(5), Allah informs us that the jinn, the most important intelligent inhabitants of the earth after man, may serve him. Contact may be made with them. Devils too may be compelled to give up their enmity and they may serve him willy-nilly. Thus, Almighty God subjected them to one of His servants who was obedient to His commands. Through the allusive tongue of the verses, in meaning Almighty God says: “O man! I made jinn, devils, and their evil obey one of My servants who obeyed Me. If you too are subjugated to my commands, numerous beings, and even jinn and devils, may be subjugated to you.
