There is no might or power without Allah.

Attributing -for example- a black cat bringing bad luck is an act of Shirk (Associating power to other then Allah). This is forbidden and constitutes the biggest sin.

It was narrated that ‘Abd-Allaah ibn Mas’ood said: The Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “Tiyarah (superstitious belief in omens) is shirk.” Narrated by al-Tirmidhi (1614), Abu Dawood (3910), Ibn Majaah (3538); classed as saheeh by al-Albaani in Saheeh Abi Dawood.
