It is undeniable that magic is a terrible practice because it is helped by jinn or demons. Of course, people who practice magic are not people who have strong faith because they are allied with Satan to earn income, even though by hurting or hurting others to cause death. Magic is present in almost all countries in the world with practice patterns that vary, according to the type of magic mastered. Quoted from various sources, here is the most feared sorcery in the world; The magic of black magic that can be done with the help of genie is very feared in Indonesia, especially on Java, because people who are victims will experience a disease that doctors cannot cure, even die. Generally, when the victim is treated by people who master white magic, from inside the body there will be various dangerous objects such as needles, nails, threads, hair, and so on.
This type of sorcery is believed to be derived from a tradition of ancestral spirits-animist in West Africa that has existed since around 10,000 years ago. Its roots are diverse and include the peoples of Fon, Ewe, and Yoruba which are scattered from Nigeria in western West Africa to Ghana in eastern West Africa. Voodoo comes from the word Adja-Tado Ewe / Fon, which is “vodou” which means spirit, while in Benin, the word voodoo comes from the word Vodun which also means spirit. Uniquely, Vodun is also a national religion in Benin and is shared by around 60% of the country’s population or around 4.5 million people. In addition to West Africa, voodoo is also known among the Haitians, a country on the Caribbean peninsula, South America, and also a sect of belief in God called “Bondye” or often referred to as “LWA”.
These voodoo adherents, called Vodouists, usually carry out rituals oriented to spirits, and establish personal relationships with LWA through complex rituals and are reproduced through sacred objects. Voodoo ceremonies are also usually performed accompanied by their country’s special music and dance. It is said that the Voodoo tradition arrived in Haiti from West Africa because it was carried by slaves sent by France to the country in the 18th century. Voodoo rituals are performed in a temple called “Honor”. Inside the temple, Vodouists begin their ritual by cooking a kind of poultry as an offering to the spirit, and proceed with a series of prayers, songs, and recitation of verses addressed to the LWA. This ritual is led by a priest and pastor.
