As far as the Islamic Shari`ah is concerned, it is forbidden for us to consult a so-called fortune-teller or astrologer. As Muslims, we believe that no one but Almighty Allah can have knowledge of the unseen. Full and accurate knowledge of the future is possessed only by Allah, All-Knowing, Who said in the Qur'an, (No soul knows what it will earn on the morrow) (Luqman 31:34).

  • Palm reading is a form of fortune telling and it is strickly prohibited in Islam
  • The Prophet (s) said "Whoever went to a fortune-teller and believed in what he said, has disbelieved in what was revealed to Muhammad."
  • believing in it is equal to disbelief

  • What about just curiosity? The Prophet (s) said, "Whoever goes to a fortune-teller and asks him about anything, his prayers will not be accepted for forty days.” [Narrated by Muslim, 2230].
