I was wondering if letting someone put you under hypnosis is considered magic.

What is the ruling of hypnosis in Islam, is it halal, haraam, magic, etc?

Thanks ahead of time.

I'm sorry but I don't understand/see the relevance of the link to the question.  Is there a mistake?  Jazaak Allaahu khairan.

Secondly, hypnosis is a type of soothsaying, in which a hypnotist seeks the help of a Jinn and makes him overpower a hypnotized person and talk through him. The Jinn gives the hypnotized person power to do certain actions, if he agrees to obey the hypnotist and is truthful with him in return for mutual benefits. Accordingly, the Jinn causes the hypnotized person to obey the hypnotist in any actions or to give any information asked from him, if it is being honest with the hypnotist. It is therefore not permissible to utilize hypnosis or to use it to find a stolen or lost object, to cure a sick person, or to do anything through a hypnotized person. In fact, this is Shirk, due to what was previously mentioned and because it is resorting to other than Allah in matters that are beyond those ordinarily permitted by Allah for His Creation.
