Religious Con Artists – Part 10

Ignorance about the future is better for the people. We must understand that prohibition of soothsaying is beneficial to us. Allah the Almighty does not wish people to have knowledge of the future. It is possible that a person may come to know of something of tremendous importance which will take place is according to his wishes. But they’re happening may be dependent on his giving alms or invoking God. Having knowledge beforehand may prevent the person from giving alms and invoking God with the result he will be deprived of his wishes. Similarly, he may come to know of some calamity is to befall and this will cause him great anxiety when in reality this happening may not occur at all because of change in God’s ordinance (bada).

After the birth of the Holy Prophet, the shaitans and the Jinns were denied access to the heavens, hence they were unable to give information about the heavenly affairs. Now they could only inform about the evil magical matters. This information is unreliable because among the jinns too there are liars as well as truthful jinns. Therefore the fortune telling of a diviner is unreliable.
