Practicing black magic and these kinds of things are prohibited in Islam. In Saudi Arabia, it is considered as a crime and is liable to be punished. The punishment for practicing black spell in Saudi Arabia is the death penalty. The Saudi police were looking for a woman who belongs to Indonesia and working as a maid here in Saudi Arabia.

It is very common in Saudi Arabia that the maids using magic spells against their employers. Especially, after the government gives permission to Moroccan maids to work in Saudi Arabia. But it is not necessary the Moroccan maid do the same, in the current case an Indonesian maid used black magic against her employer and her family. The employer says that the Indonesian maid practiced black magic on the whole family by using different black magic items and ran away after that from his house.
He further explained that the black magic affected his family severely and because of the spell, the family suffered from unconsciousness, black out, and epilepsy experiences like fists, strokes or fell in faint and convulsive moments of muscles, or a sudden out of control attack etc. He further added that the Indonesian lady was working there as a maid for three years and in this entire period of the job, the behavior and the attitude of the whole family towards her was very good and we all treated her well.
The Saudi employer said that the different tools used for witchcraft such as hair, blood, lizards, or small piece of papers having the names of family members etc. were hiding in different places in our house. After the maid ran away and left the house, we start finding the magic objects used for a black spell from different parts of the house.[irp]
He said that he believed in black magic but he had no wish to punish her. He didn’t want to cause any damage to her. He believed that to do a black magic for cutting the effect of the evil charm is also prohibited in Islam and is Haram. That is the reason; he just wanted to find her as soon as possible. The only thing he wanted from her was that she comes back and lifts this wickedness of black magic from his house, finishes the curse and frees his family from this black spell.
