Has anyone ever seen (or heard of) an magician doing magic "in the Islam way", like western magicians often use the bible as a theme for their shows? I'd be very interested in seeing how that would be received. Not so hot in the usa, needless to say, but I wonder if in Islamic countries if this is popular - or prohibited.
TIA!

It is my (non expert) understanding that Islam forbids magic of any sort.

I was at a recent discussion where a children's magician told us he now had a show based completely on bubble blowing especially for Muslim families and schools.

I have performed magic at Muslim events and birthday parties. So it must not be strictly forbidden.

Watch the Penn and Teller Magic and Mystery Tour.

One of the locations is Egypt, ie. Muslim.

Another episode is in India. I do not know if Indian conjurors are Muslim, but they are outside the Hindu caste system and considered unclean.
