One of the main goals of Sheitan is to break marriages. Surat Al-Bakara is a major cure for various spiritual disorders including Sihr, Iyen and Hassad that causes divorce. It has got over 4 pages that talk about marriage, divorce and women. These verses present sets of rules and boundaries by Allah to his slaves. In my opinion, this is an antidote against the work of Sheitan to get couples divorced. They verses teach us that Allah is in control.  No one can break your marriage or mess with marriages because there are rules in place by the creator.

Jabir reported that Prophet Muhammed (ﷺ) said: Iblis (the father of all Sheitan) places his throne upon water; he then sends his agents; the closest to him are those who create the worst tribulations. One of them would come and says, “I did so and so.” And Iblis says: “You have done nothing.” Then one amongst them comes and says: “I did not let him (a human) go until I broke what is between him and his wife.” Iblis brings this Sheitan near him and says: “You are the best”.

Some people wonder, since there is magic or Sheitan going after their marriage, If they should just get divorced and maybe later get back together so that they get rid of this evil magic. This is exactly like somebody cutting his head off because of migraine and hoping that they can put it back together. The devil in this case will not go away because it has found this person to be obedient and it will further push you into more wrongdoings. The Sihr of divorce does not end by divorcing your spouse. After divorce it continues to prevent any future marriage. The way divorce Sihr works, is my making the spouses experience tightness in their chest and irritability toward their spouse. They would feel like they can’t tolerate one another. Additionally, spouses would feel repulsed from one another emotionally and sexually. This verse in Quran helps us understand this issue:

Allah Says in Quran Surat Al-Baqarah, verse 102:

“They ˹instead˺ followed the magic promoted by the devils during the reign of Solomon. Never did Solomon disbelieve, rather the devils disbelieved. They taught magic to the people, along with
what had been revealed to the two angels, Hârût and Mârût, in
Babylon. [38] The two angels never taught anyone without saying,
“We are only a test ˹for you˺, so do not abandon ˹your˺ faith.” Yet
people learned ˹magic˺ that caused a rift ˹even˺ between husband
and wife; although their magic could not harm anyone except by
Allah’s Will. They learned what harmed them and did not benefit
them—although they already knew that whoever buys into magic
would have no share in the Hereafter. Miserable indeed was the
price for which they sold their souls, if only they knew!”

If your desire toward your spouse is restricted because of Sheitan, Iyen or Hassad, Do not give up. First, check with your medical doctor (gynecologist, urologist, psychiatrist). Second, Do Ruqia. Third, have an open, candid conversation with your spouse. Explain to them how much you love them and how your lack of intimacy is temporarily out of your hand and that you are working on overcoming this. Try to compensate by sending flowers and writing love notes to your spouse.

Fourth, Do not give up. Keep working on getting intimate with your spouse. Ibn ‘Abbas reported God’s messenger as saying that if anyone who seeks intimacy with their spouse says, “In the name of God. God, keep us away from the devil and keep the devil away from what you have provided us,” should a child be born to them thereby, no devil will ever harm it. (Bukhari and Muslim.)

Apply olive oil and then take the Quranic advice in Al-Baqarah chapter verse 223 “and make introductions for yourselves” which means to start by making foreplay. Make Duaa and then start the intimacy. Set the expectations with your spouse that It is okay to fail during the intimacy.

You are getting rewarded from Allah for trying to get intimate with your spouse. Prophet Muhammed on being asked whether a reward would be given for satisfying one’s passion, He said, “Tell me; if he were to express his desire in something forbidden, would it not be a sin on his part? Similarly, if he were to express his desire in what Allah has permitted, he would get rewarded.”
