I haven’t really seen talk of this so I thought I’d highlight it myself as a little PSA.

I know the zodiac meme is really popular, and also that people like to reblog zodiac/horoscope posts in general. That’s cool! It’s your blog, you do you.

But I’m humbly requesting that you guys tag your zodiac/horoscope posts for your Muslim followers, as it’s haraam (forbidden) for us to even read them. The reasoning for this is because zodiacs, horoscopes, fortune tellers, psychics, etc., are essentially claiming to know the future or the unseen, and according to Islam, only Allah can know that.

If that isn’t enough incentive, here are two ahadith (sayings of the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH)) explaining the consequences of a Muslim’s exposure to this kind of content:

“The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: ‘Whoever goes to a fortuneteller and asks him about something, his prayer will not be accepted for forty days.’”

and

“Whoever goes to a fortuneteller and believes what he says has disbelieved in that which was revealed to Muhammad (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him).”

I know in these quotes it refers just to going to fortune tellers, but the idea extends to all forms of fortune telling—tarot cards, psychics, even reading the horoscope in the newspaper or on social media. Reading them alone, regardless of whether they believe it or not, will invalidate a Muslim’s prayers for forty days, and I don’t want that to happen to anyone. I don’t want the risk to be there for anyone, you know? Sure, accidents happen, but sometimes they don’t, and that’s not good.

So please, now that you know, take the couple of seconds to tag these kinds of things for safety’s sake. And feel free to signal boost this post as well!

Thanks for your consideration!

if this applies to any of you i tag all those things as “astrology” = u=b

Don't be the product, buy the product!
