|“||Rukh is the home of souls. While we live, it is every man for them self. But when you die, all go back to one place, This is Rukh. When humans die, their bodies return to the earth don't they? The souls return to Rukh, The home of souls.||”|
—Baba, telling Aladdin about Rukh
Rukh (ルフ, Rufu) is the main source of Magoi and the world's natural phenomenon.
When Life is born and it lives within the flow, to move forward one must accept that truth. This is Rukh's Guidance or "Fate". However, there are people who try to go against it, like the people of Al-Thamen. The degeneration of evolution; existence becomes nothing and for everything to become their negative that is what it means to go against Fate. This is also known as "Falling into Depravity". When one loved by Rukh is stained in black like Judar, they have this power to change fate and can lead to the death of another Magi like Aladdin. Only the power of a "Miracle" can fight against this darkness. Only with the Wisdom of Solomon will this miracle be possible. It is currently unknown if this mission applies to all Magi.
Black Rukh is the polar opposite of Rukh. It is created when one goes against fate and tries to defy destiny. It is created from and fuels hatred and malice. The people of Al-Thamen are using it to change destiny as well as for creating Dark Metal Vessels. They hope to change the world with this. The Magi, Judar, is able to control it.
It is revealed that the Rukh that comes from the people who died, while being in the state of "Depravity" cannot go back to the Great White Flow.

- In Aladdin and the Magic Lamp from the One Thousand and One Nights, Rukh (as bird) are Masters of Djinn.
