In his explanation of the chapter on the types of magic in Kitab al-Tawheed, Shaykh Ibn Baz (rahimahullaah) states in Sharh Kitab al-Tawheed (Dar al-Diyaa, 1422H, p. 135):
And magic (sihr) is of two types:
Sulaymaan Aal al-Shaykh said in Tayseer al-Azeez al-Hameed (p. 297):
And his saying, "Whoever does magic has committed shirk" is a text that the magician is a mushrik since he does not bring his magic without (committing) shirk as has been cited by al-Haafidh from some of them.
And Shaykh Ibn al-Uthaymeen said in al-Qawl al-Mufeed (2/47-48):
(Whoever) is a conditional particle, and the action of the condition is (does magic) and the answer to the condition is (has committed shirk). And this does not apply to all magic, since the intent behind (Whoever does magic) is that with satanic routes. As for magic through potions and medications and what is like them, then it has already preceded that he is not a mushrik, however the one who does magic through obeying the devils and using them for what he desires (of goals), then there is no doubt this one is a mushrik.
