In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful. ASTROLOGY AND HOROSCOPES IN ISLAM. Below are comments from Imam extracted from a source: The great Saudi Scholar, Ibn 'Uthaymeen, said: "Astrology is a kind of sorcery and fortune-telling. It is forbidden because it is based on illusions, not on concrete facts. There is no relation between the movements of celestial bodies and what place on the Earth." Before the advent of Islam, people would think that the sun and moon might eclipse when a great figure died. During the Prophet's lifetime, it happened that the sun eclipsed on the same day when the Prophet's son Ibrahim died. The people then thought that is had eclipsed because of the Prophet's son's death. On knowing this, the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) led them in the Eclipse Prayer and then delivered them a speech saying: "The sun and moon are but signs of Allah; they do not eclipse because so-and-so died or was born." This hadith indicates that the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) denied all relation between the movements of the heavenly bodies and events on the Earth. Besides, people who believe in the prophecies of astrologists are easily exposed to a labyrinth of illusions, pessimism and psychological problems. TO BE CONTINUED..........INSYA'ALLAH. ALLAH KNOWS BEST.
