We have already in the modern era where technology is developed and evolved so everything becomes faster and easier. However, there are still some people who take shortcuts using black magic for a specific purpose. Whereas in the teachings of Islam, it is clear that the law is haram and classified as an act of polytheism, but still there are people who do magic to master other humans and make the humans submit to them. Moreover, they use black magic with the help of Satan so they are like not believing in the power of Allah and add more sins to them.
And they followed what recite(d) the devils over (the) kingdom (of) Sulaiman. And not disbelieved Sulaiman [and] but the devils disbelieved, they teach the people [the] magic and what was sent down to the two angels in Babylon, Harut, and Marut. And not they both teach anyone unless they [both] say,
“Only we (are) a trial, so (do) not disbelieve.” But they learn from those what [they] causes separation with it between the man and his spouse. And not they (could) at all [be those who] harm with it anyone except by permission (of) Allah. And they learn what harms them and not profits them. And indeed they knew that whoever buys it, not for him in the Hereafter any share. And surely evil (is) what they sold with it themselves if they were (to) know. (Al-Baqarah 2:102)
Here is presented Islamic way to break the black magic.
1. Laugh happily to break the magic
The black magic gets its power from negative energy, and conversely, the positive energy has the power to weaken it. In this case, laughing is really the best medicine because we can use it quite effectively against any kind of curse. We do not need a ritual or mantra, just own positive energy. When we feel the effects of the curse around us, think of something funny or activities that can make you laugh. Laughing means happiness and it will break the black magic that comes to us.

2. Read Surah Al-Baqarah
Al-Baqarah can be used as a guardian, expulsion, and breaker of black magic because Satan will flee from the house in which recited Surah Al-Baqarah. Therefore, Al-Baqarah is among the surah in the Qur’an which is very well read when we ruqyah. The last two verses of Surah Al-Baqarah can suffice the night of the one who reads it, with Allah’s permission.
“Read the Qur’an, in fact it (the Qur’an) will come on the Day of Judgment as a giver of intercession to its readers, read Zahrawain (Al-Baqarah and Ali Imran) because in fact both will come on the Day of Judgment like the clouds or two shade or as if two groups of birds are spreading their wings to defend their readers. Read the Surah Al-Baqarah because taking it is barakah and leaving it is a loss, and the magicians will not be able to fight it. “ (HR Muslim no. 804)
3. Cupping or hijamah therapy
Cupping is a method of treatment by removing blood contaminated with toxins or oxidants from the body through the epidermis surface. This therapy has been done by Propet and recommended in facing all diseases or black magic. We can excrete the black magic by cupping on the affected part of black magic.
“Truly what you are doing to cure illness is by cupping.” (HR Abu Dawud, Ibnu Majah, Hakim, Ahmad, from Abu Hurairah)

4. Drink Zamzam water
Zamzam water can cure all diseases and black magic, even in accordance with what is intended by people who drink it. Drinking this while adding and praying the Quranic verses and special prayers can make this Zamzam water more efficacious to destroy black magic because this water is the most sacred water in the eyes of Allah.
”The best water in the earth is Zamzam water. Zamzam water is a filling food and an antidote for the disease. ” (HR Ibnu Abbas)
5. Read the verse of Kursi after each five-day prayer
The verse of the Kursi is categorized as the most valuable verse in the Qur’an. This is because when we read it, we believe in Allah’s power and praise Him who will destroy all the evil forces including black magic that is currently attacking us. Moreover, by reading this, Allah will keep and protect us from Satan when we go to sleep at night. We have already known that the night is the time for Satan’s action to tempt us.
“Whoever reads the verse of the Kursi at night, Allah always keeps it and Satan does not approach him until the Shubuh.”

6. Take refuge with Allah’s perfect sentences
Should be read at night and during the day while in a place or we are being attacked by black magic and wants to break it. Allah’s perfect sentence is one of the best weapons to destroy Satan in a new place or in the body which is caused by black magic.
“Whoever stops in one place and he says: ‘A’uudzu bi kalimaatillahi attaammaati min syarri maa khalaq’ (I take refuge with God’s perfect sentences from the evil of His creatures), then nothing will harm him until he goes from that place.”
7. Consult with Islamic religious experts or ustadz
We can ask a religious scholar or ustadz to ruqyah or recite a prayer to us in ways justified by the Islamic law without any polytheism. Sometimes the black magic that attacks us has the power to make us find it difficult to pray for ourselves or making us lose self-awareness.
To break the black magic, we can bring in ustadz to pray for us because he has a strong iman and akhlaq. We do not need to recompense the black magic with other evil, even more so when it is done by means of magic again that is forbidden by Allah.

8. Tawakkal to Allah
We must tawakkal only to Allah as Muslim. Put our trust and believe only in Him because He is only together with the one who is tawakkal to Him and never believes and uses other powers such as Satan’s power.
Indeed he, not for him (is) any authority on those who believe and upon their Lord, they put their trust. Only his authority (is) over those who take him as an ally and those who [they] with Him associate partners. (An-Nahl 16:99-100)
9. Clean the houses from the statues and lifeless images
It is narrated in a hadith, that the Angels (grace) will not enter the house in which there are things above. We have already known that Allah can break the black magic and protect us by ordering His Angels to us. However, the statues and lifeless images block our relationship with Allah because we worship something other than Allah. Moreover, they can be used by Satan to strengthen the power of black magic.
Indeed, my protector (is) Allah the One Who revealed the Book. And He protects the righteous. And those whom you invoke besides Him, not they are able (to) help you and not they can help themselves. And if you call them to the guidance they do not hear. And you see them looking at you but they (do) not see. (Al-A’raf 7:196-198)

Dates are sacred foods derived from the holy city, Medina and always eaten by the Prophets in the past time. In addition, dates are often mentioned in the verses of the Qur’an as the tree of life. So, this fruit is believed to cure any diseases and break the black magic. And more importantly, if the dates we eat are from the city of Medina as mentioned in hadith Muslim.
“Whoever eats seven dates’ ajwah every morning, then poison and magic will not be able to harm him that day”. (HR Bukhari)
11. Use olive oil
Olive oil is an oil that comes out of a blessed plant. Olive oil can be used to smear the required parts of the body on the person affected by the black magic. In addition, we can eat this oil with food or oil it to our hair to break the black magic too.
“Eat olive oil! Verily it is blessed and oil your hair with it because in truth it comes from a blessed tree.” (HR Ahmad and At-Tirmidzi)
