I have recently read an article saying that a muslim who reads/follows horoscopes/astrology will not have their prayers accepted for 40days and nights.

This made me feel really bad, because I never ever had known that. I knew that we dont put any faith, or follow these, but my friends and I would constantly look ours up on Yahoo just for a good laugh, not to believe in it but just for entertainment. We also looked up the "characteristics" of each month and had a good laugh as well.

I never intended any harm, and I certainly didnt believe in it, but it was very entertaining

I am feeling sick after reading the hadith because now I am scared for the longest time my prayers havent been accepted.

Can someone please give me advice on how to go forward from this?

Stop reading horoscopes and repent.

wsalam,

you know they did this experiment where they gave everyone in a class a "horoscope" then the next day they asked the class how many did it come true for. and all of them said their horoscope came true, then they revealed that the horoscope was the SAME for everyone!!

anyway shows how they write those things, broad and general and vague and mysterious....definitely entertaining but best to avoid them altogether even in fun...cuz u could maybe start to half believe in them or something!! so just avoid them iA i'm sure there are a million more entertaining things to do on the web!! Wink
