Salams everyone, and yeah, I read the post analyzing the subject of magic.  Thanks brother TS.  It's a topic many don't know about and InshAllah, I hope your explanations help to convey the appropriate clarifications.

And yes sister Ruhi, hypnosisis another aspect that needs to be discussed as that too requires clarification.   Again, hypnosis can also be separated into two categories - Haram and Halal - depending on intent (niyah) and the severity of the method with which its applied on a person.  The two categories would be:

1)  Hypnosis induced through magic of illusion (the Haram form of magic), sorcery and occult.  It can be triggered through all such malignant institutions in its severest form to bring about a more or less vegetative state of mind in an individual with the intention of violating the person and deriving illicit advantage in some way or another.  Needless to say, this is absolutely HARAM.  This sort of hypnosis is also often done by communicating with the jinn.  The culture is most prevalent in traditional communities where focus on the Noble Quran is little or not at all.

2) The other type is medicinal hypnosis which is very dissimilar from the aspect explained above.  Medicinal hypnotherapy conducted by recognized mental-health professionals is an altogether different field which is specifically intended to alleviate emotional stress and suffering.  It's a type of psychiatric treatment in which the mind is relaxed through safe techniques in a trance-like state similar to being completely engrossed as in an interesting book, movie, music or one's own innermost thoughts with an upfront, one-on-one conversation, between the psychiatrist and the patient.   Thus, in medicinal hypnosis, guiding someone into a trance-like state is called "hypnosis" and then the interaction between the patient and therapist is "hypnotherapy."   Though this psychiatrist treatment does not have a very high rate of success, it's aimed at helping the therapist with a variety of problems concerning the patient, such as breaking bad habits or coping with stress or finding the causes of anxiety by understanding the workings of a person's subconscious.  In other words, medicinal hypnosis is similar to a frank discussion on tough issues of life with a reliable friend in which the anxious friend may feel better after sharing their problems and the trusted confidant may have some helpful advise to share.  

Needless to say, if one is a sincere follower of the Quran with an increasingly clear understanding, they will never require such treatments.   Though there is absolutely nothing wrong in sharing life's problems with trusted friends to lighten the emotional burden, the Noble Quran is enough as a Help in all such circumstances for a true believer.  However, unfortunately, most people (even among Muslims) are strangers to the Quran.  Such folks may decide they require psychiatric or psychological therapy, if they are constantly under stress for some reason.   While this treatment is not Haram, one must be careful to seek medicinal hypnotherapy only from recognized professional sources, not from strangers, quacks or little-known acquaintances indulging in Haram hypnosis to predate on the vulnerable ones.

According to the observation of various professional medicinal hypnotists, the common concept that a hypnotist can take over the minds of their subjects and control their actions is not true.  They say that while in a state of trance, you are still in control of your actions, you can hear and understand everything around you and it's impossible to force you to do something against your will.   This is true only about medicinal hypnosis because it's a professional, medicinal therapy designed to lessen a person's anxiety and thus the therapy goes only up to a certain point, allowing the patient to retain control of themselves.  This is a vital point which makes medicinal hypnotherapy different from Haram hypnosis handled by sorcerers and occultists working with the jinn which does make people lose control of their actions, and yes, I repeat, this is surely Haram in which the victim's daze and stupor is so deep that they do lose control of themselves and left entirely at the command of the medium.
