  • Is Every Superstition A Shirk?

    Posted by Mohammad Ali Soomro on March 25, 2023 at 9:17 pm

    hello there!

    my question is that in a video of ghamidi Sahab, he said that believing in superstitions is shirk because he explained a hadith about the rain incident that happened at night in hudaibiya and he said that those people who said that this rain was due to certain alignment of stars, were involved in a shirk behavior because everything’s cause in the metaphysical world (ma waraae asbaab) is only Allah and only this can be said that Allah did this. in the states of metaphysical world saying that this thing was caused by such and such thing, would amount to shirk because anything in the metaphysical world is only associated with Allah. but in our physical world and realm, we can say that this thing was caused by such other thing because in the physical realm Allah has associated occurrence of things with physical phenomenon, but that too is ultimately associated to Allah, that he made it this way.

    but my question is that if someone for example deliberately believes in a false concept without any experiment/observance but in the physical realm, then it’s obviously a superstition because of no evidence but apart from being like a lie and false information, if it’s only said about in the physical realm then how will it become shirk?

    for example a scientist deliberately lies about about a concept that how clouds form, and he says that actually clouds form when hydrogen gas and oxygen gas at high altitude, under low pressure fuse together to make water molecules and vapors and that’s how clouds are formed (although according to experiments, clouds are formed by precipitations and evaporations from land). so this would be superstition and a lie because this concept isn’t based on evidence but how will it be a shirk if it doesn’t involve a metaphysical realm thing?
