The Qur'an speaks of it:
1 Say: I seek refuge with the Lord of the Dawn
2 From the mischief of created things;
3 From the mischief of Darkness as it overspreads;
4 From the mischief of those who practise secret arts;
5 And from the mischief of the envious one as he practises envy.
In Mohammed's life:
According to the traditions, a group of the Jews from Khaibar visited Medina where they met a famous magician, named Labid bin Asam. They said to him:
Syed Maududi's commentary"You know how Muhammad has treated us. We have tried our best to bewitch him but have not succeeded. Now we have come to you because you are a more skilled magician. Here are three gold coins, accept these and cast a powerful magic spell on Muhammad."
This found its way into sahih hadith:
Magic was worked on the Prophet so that he began to fancy that he was doing a thing which he was not actually doing. One day he invoked (Allah) for a long period and then said, "I feel that Allah has inspired me as how to cure myself. Two persons came to me (in my dream) and sat, one by my head and the other by my feet. One of them asked the other, "What is the ailment of this man?" The other replied, 'He has been bewitched" The first asked, 'Who has bewitched him?' The other replied, 'Lubaid bin Al-A'sam.' The first one asked, 'What material has he used?' The other replied, 'A comb, the hair gathered on it, and the outer skin of the pollen of the male date-palm.' The first asked, 'Where is that?' The other replied, 'It is in the well of Dharwan.'" So, the Prophet went out towards the well and then returned and said to me on his return, "Its date-palms (the date-palms near the well) are like the heads of the devils." I asked, "Did you take out those things with which the magic was worked?" He said, "No, for I have been cured by Allah and I am afraid that this action may spread evil amongst the people." Later on the well was filled up with earth.

Hadith Bukhari Volume 7, Book 71, Number 660Magic was worked on Allah's Apostle so that he used to think that he had sexual relations with his wives while he actually had not (Sufyan said: That is the hardest kind of magic as it has such an effect)........
There is also this
Muslim, Book 25, Number 5448:
Sahih Bukhari, Volume 7, Book 65, Number 356, claims that Sad said:Narrated Anas ibn Malik:
In connection with incantation Anas reported that he had been granted sanction (to use incantation as a remedy) for the sting of the scorpion and for curing small pustules and dispelling the influence of an evil eye.
Also, Sahih Muslim, Book 25, Number 5531: Narrated Jabir ibn Abdullah:Allah's Apostle said, "He who eats seven 'Ajwa dates every morning, will not be affected by poison or magic on the day he eats them."
All this shows clearly that Mohammed believed in magic and he believed that people used it against him. Even the Qur'an speaks of magic. This leaves little room for Muslims to disagree.Allah's Messenger (peace_be_upon_him) said: If bad luck were to be in anything, it is found in the land, in the servant and in the horse.
So do Muslims today agree that magic is real?
Well, they execute witches, to this day...
