Ramadan: Is it okay to read about astrology?
I am obsessed with the horoscopes section in Y!A. I find it very intresting to read about someones zodiac sign. Is it ok or its a sin to read about astrology. I find some of it to be quite true. I answer alot of questions in the horsocpes section because i am always bored and i find it interesting too.
Do you think god will punish me because i read about astrology and find some of it to be true. I dont believe in it or believe in the daily horsocpes. Just read about the zodiac signs or the star signs. I want to know. So if ou do know if its haram or not, please tell me.

From a Christian standpoint, it is forbidden as well. Its is of the devil/Jinn and can only bring a curse on your household. You are suppose to hear from God and let him guide your life not some star, that could lead you off of the path God has for you.
@Ya, dinosaurs are in the bible ya dig?

There are many ahaadeeth which state that this is haraam, such as the hadeeth narrated from Safiyah bint Abi ‘Ubayd from one of the wives of the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him), who narrated that he said: “Whoever goes to a soothsayer (fortune teller) and asks him about something and believes him, his prayer will not be accepted for forty days.” (Narrated by Muslim in his Saheeh).
Qusaybah ibn al-Mukhaariq said: “I heard the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) say: ‘Al-‘ayaafah, al-tiyarah and al-turuq [kinds of augury] are all part of al-jabt [witchcraft or idolatry].’” This was narrated by Abu Dawood with a saheeh isnaad. Abu Dawood said: Al-‘ayaafah, al-khatt and al-turuq are all kinds of augury, whereby a bird is released and is watched to see whether it flies to the right or to the left. If it flies to the right it is taken as a good omen and if it flies to the left it is taken as a bad omen. Al-Jawhari said: al-jabt is a word which may be applied to idols, soothsayers, magicians, astrologers etc.
It was narrated that Ibn ‘Abbaas (may Allaah be pleased with him) said: the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “Whoever seeks knowledge from the stars is seeking one of the branches of witchcraft…” Narrated by Abu Dawood with a saheeh isnaad.
It was narrated that Mu’aawiyah ibn al-Hakam said: “I said, ‘O Messenger of Allaah, I am still close to the time of Jaahiliyyah [i.e., I am new in Islam]. Allaah has brought Islam to us, but there are among us men who go to soothsayers (fortune tellers).’ He said, ‘Do not go to them.’ I said, ‘And there are men among us who practise augury [watch birds for omens].’ He said, ‘That is something which they make up. Do not believe them.’” (Narrated by Muslim).
It was narrated from Abu Mas’ood al-Badri that the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) forbade the price of a dog, the fee of a prostitute and the payment of a soothsayer. (Narrated by al-Bukhaari and Muslim).
It was reported that ‘Aa’ishah (may Allaah be pleased with her) said: “Some people asked the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) about soothsayers. He said, ‘They are nothing.’ They said, ‘O Messenger of Allaah, sometimes they say something and it comes true.’ The Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: ‘That is a word of truth that the jinn snatches and whispers into the ear of his familiar, but they mix a hundred lies with it.’” (Narrated by al-Bukhaari and Muslim).
It was narrated from Abu Hurayrah (may Allaah be pleased with him) that the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “Whoever comes to a soothsayer and believes what he says, or has intercourse with a woman in her back passage, has nothing to do with that which has been revealed to Muhammad (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him).” (Narrated by Abu Dawood).
… The scholars have stated that it is haraam to deal with such matters or to go to find out about them or to believe in them. It is haraam to pay them money, and anyone who is suffering from any of these things must hasten to repent from it. And Allaah knows best.

Salam You are okay just to read about astrology but you are haram to believe it because all of our future situations and destinies are determined by Allah not based on our birth days.. If it is true what have been told in astrology there is on a coincidence. We are not allowed (haram) to believe the fortune teller.If we belive in it we will have great sin which is called shirk which means that we make ally to the oneness of Allah swt..

Do you actually believe in your horoscope?
I do, I won’t lie. Sometimes, there are things mentioned in my daily horoscope that I know doesn’t point towards me and probably the next guy behind me so I ignore that section. But then there are things that have an amazing correlation to me and it’s great because it really does help me and make me think twice about things. It gives me a heads up, confidence, and determination. I don’t think it’s stupid at all.
Then again, I also wish on 11:11 when I remember to.
I hold my breath while crossing a bridge and touch metal.
I throw change into fountains. And all sorts of junk I don’t remember.
I just think, you can’t expect your horoscope to revolve around you and expect the stars to turn on the traffic lights for you 24/7, you know? I don’t know. Just a thought~
