Damned of Magic
They followed what the evil ones gave out (falsely) against the power of Solomon: the blasphemers Were, not Solomon, but the evil ones, teaching men Magic, and such things as came down at
Babylon to the
angels Harut and Marut. But neither of these taught anyone (Such things)
without saying: "We are only for trial; so do not blaspheme." They
learned from them the means to sow discord between man and wife. But they could
not thus harm anyone except by Allah.s permission. And they learned what harmed
them, not what profited them. And they knew that the buyers of (magic) would
have no share in the happiness of the Hereafter. And vile was the price for
which they did sell their souls, if they but knew!
If they had kept their Faith and guarded themselves from evil, far better had been the reward from their Lord, if they but knew!
