Islamic Ruling on Horoscopes

Most of us come up with the argument that I don't believe in horoscopes, I just read them for fun. I happened to do the same thing until yesterday I did a bit of research and found out that it is an act of kufr and should be done away with entirely.

Sunnipath: As for simply reading them, it would be a pointless waste of time and thus blameworthy.When there is any reason to fear being influenced by them, then it would be necessary to avoid.

IslamOnline: Of course, one could argue that there is nothing wrong in a harmless glance at the horoscopes once in a while as long as you as one does not believe in them. But if you have a few glances at the horoscopes, you might find yourself unable to plan your day without looking at them.

SunnahOnline: True Muslims are therefore obliged to stay far away from these areas. Thus, rings, chains, etc., which have the signs of the zodiac on them should not be worn, even if one does not believe in them.They are part and parcel of a fabricated system which propagates kufr and should be done away with entirely. No believing Muslim should attempt to guess his sign. Nor should he or she read horoscope columns in newspaper or listen to them read. And, any Muslim who allows astrological predictions to determine his actions, should seek Allah's forgiveness and renew his Islam.

walking across the house to your sisters room may prove equally effective as 'pinging'!
