Removing Magic with Magic


Questioner: A man afflicted with magic, is it allowed for him to remove that magic with magic?

Al-Albaani: No. Except according to one school of thought, that of the intoxicated drunkard, Abu Nawwaas, who said, “And cure me with that which itself is the disease.” [i.e., give me more alcohol even though it is what has caused all the problems].
