All perfect praise be to Allaah, The Lord of the Worlds.  I testify that there is none worthy of worship except Allaah, and that Muhammad, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, is His slave and Messenger.

First, it should be mentioned that suspecting a Muslim and accusing him of having done something just because of suspecting him without any evidence is considered a great sin. Therefore, if your mother has no evidence for accusing that girl, then this is an injustice and a clear lie for which she must repent. She must also ask that girl to forgive her; for more benefit, please refer to Fataawa 128834 and 92167.

Besides, the fact that there is a piece of meat may not be evidence that it is magic. What you mentioned about her that she has a bad temper and fits of anger may have other reasons.

In any case, if you are convinced and think that your mother is affected by magic, then the cure is easy, Allaah willing.

For more information on how to treat magic, please refer to Fataawa 88904, 84498 and 82918

Allaah Knows best.
