Magic and the Occult

In his commentary upon Kitab al-Tawhid, Shaykh Saalih Aal al-Shaykh makes an important clarification regarding the word sihr (magic) and points out that this term can refer to a number of things.
This is "Chapter: An Explanation of Some of the Types of Magic," when the Imaam (rahimahullaah) mentioned what has come regarding magic (in the previous chapter) and what is connected to that of its ruling and the detailed speech therein, he mentioned (here) that magic can sometimes come in the texts but it is not intended by it the magic which is shirk with Allaah, the Mighty and Majestic. For the noun "sihr" (magic) is general in the language, and the specific noun (of magic) enters into (the general), that which comprises seeking aid by the devils, seeking nearness to them and worshipping them so that they aid the magician. And there are other affairs that enter into it (the general noun with the general linguistic meaning) to which the legislator has applied the label of "magic" but which are not like the first magic (involving the devils) in terms of reality (haqeeqah) and ruling (hukm), (rather) it is of levels.
Refer to the commentary on the chapter "Some of the Types of Magic" (Refer to al-Jami' al-Fareed Fee Sharh Kitab al-Tawhid, 1/1014-1015):
