Do Muslims believe that witchcraft exists?


I’m reading [113:5]. Perhaps my translated copy if the Koran is wrong? Can you tell me what that text means?

Yes, Muslims do believe that black magic exists, but they also believe that by reading certain verses of Quran [Surah an-Naas and Surah al-Falaq in particular], the spell has no effect on the person. The verse that you have quoted is from Surah al-Falaq.

EDIT&quot:
Surah al-Falaq
The Dawn
In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful.

[113.1] Say: I seek refuge in the Lord of the dawn,
[113.2] From the evil of what He has created,
[113.3] And from the evil of the utterly dark night when it comes,
[113.4] And from the evil of those who blow on knots,
[113.5] And from the evil of the envious when he envies

[Verse 113.4 refers to those who practice black magic].

Surah an-Naas

The People
In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful.

[114.1] Say: I seek refuge in the Lord of men,
[114.2] The King of men,
[114.3] The God of men,
[114.4] From the evil of the whisperings of the slinking (Shaitan),
[114.5] Who whispers into the hearts of men,
[114.6] From among the jinn and the men.
