Magic – A Practice of imaginations
Difference among miracle and magic
Surah YUUNUS – 10 (JONAH)
In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful
|76. And when the Truth from Our Presence came unto them, they said: Lo! This is evident magic.
77. Moses said: Speak ye (so) of the Truth when it hath come unto you? Is this magic? And the magicians thrive not.
|76. Falammaa jaaa-‘a-humul-Haqqu min ‘indiNaa qaaluuu ‘inna haazaa lasih-rum-mubiin.
77. Qaala Muusaaa ‘ata-quuluuna lil-Haqqi lammaa jaaa-‘akum. ‘A-sihrun haazaa. Wa laa yufli-hus-saahi-ruun.
It is commanded that when the Truth reached, they said on the basis of their sense and knowledge that it was evident magic, and except it they could originate nothing but think that they should consider the miracles of the Prophets (peace be upon them) as juggling of the magicians. Prophet Moses (peace be upon him) told them: juggling of the magicians are not real things, by showing which, some intelligent people please the public or grand people and receive some cash from them for their livelihood. They can never claim: We are Prophets of Allah; you will be punished by Him if you will not obey us.
If they do so, it cannot be accepted and they can never succeed in their pretension. Moreover, if they claim any big pretension, then their magic fails also. And they lose their power of providing temporary amusement. About magic; it has been discussed in Surah ‘Al-Baqarah (Chapter -2). Its reality is only that some people; whose power of thinking is excessive than ordinary people, they increase it by practice so much that imagination of other people follows their ideas and they begin to see the things which a magician imagines. It depends on his practice and there are fixed methods for it, which are known to the knowers and they carry it into effect. With the fixed methods, their thinking power acquires some strength of impressing the viewers on a point. It has many forms, but it cannot be gotten without practice. Prophets and Messengers (peace be upon them) of Allah Almighty are on very height from it. They do not do such kind of practice. They are granted power of showing miracles from Allah Almighty in time all at once.
