Q: Some people believe in Katiba (a kind of black magic) and the like… What is your opinion regarding these issues? I do not believe in such things although it might be sometimes practiced by using the Holy Quran? 

A: All what is related to magic, fortune-telling and medical treatment that are not based on science or reality, is considered Batil (falsehood) and we do not believe in it. Besides, the Holy Quran is a book for guidance and it is prohibited to use it in such matters except what has been said in certain authentic traditions about the use of some verses as a kind of protection.
