Every night for the past few weeks I feel more at home once I've sat in the toilet at night with the lights off for a few minutes. I'm a Muslim woman. I've been having a few problems with my husband. He tells me it must be magic or jinns. Can you please give me some advice? 



The general sign of a person suffering from black magic is that his or her behaviour becomes strange. This strangeness in behaviour could be in terms of speaking or acting in a bizarre manner, or arguing with the spouse on trivial and petty issues.  Like the sorcerers of Babylon who learnt magic to separate a husband from his wife as mentioned in the Holy Qur’an. (Surah Baqarah v.102)

Regarding your question, it may be a possibility that you have black magic or it could also be that you are suffering from some sort of psychological illness.

You can protect yourself by offering the five daily prayers and performing good deeds. Also make a habit of reciting Surah Falaq and Surah Naas. Imam Malik raḥimahullāh (may Allāh have mercy upon him) narrates from Saaidah Aisha raḍyAllāhu 'anhu (may Allāh be pleased with him) that ‘’Whenever the Prophet of Allah ṣallallāhu 'alayhi wa sallam (peace and blessings of Allāh be upon him) suffered from an ailment, he would recite the Muwadhatain (Surah Falaq and Surah Naas), blow over his hands and then wipe his whole body with those hands.  When this pain became severe on his deathbed, I would recite the Muwadhatain, blow over his hands, and then he wipes them over himself because my hands could not be a fitting substitute for his blessed hands.’’

You can also use supplicated oil by massaging the body twice everyday where pain is experienced.  You can also drink supplicated water to protect yourself from the evil eye.
