Ruqyah is a form of protection, prayer and remembrance of Allah. It involves reciting certain verses from the Quran and hadith. It is especially effective in repelling the evil eye.
Some ruqyah performers write certain verses from the Quran on cloth and burn them. This is a major sin and violates the right healing procedures known since the time of the Prophet (pbuh). It also humiliates the Qur’an.
It is a form of prayer
Many people believe that the Qur’an and dua are a form of protection against jinns and devils. Some even go as far as to wear charms with surahs and verses written on them, while others use decorative wall-hangings with a surah or verse on them for protection. While these may seem harmless, they are not a prescribed act by the Prophet (sallallahu alayhe wasallam) and can come close to shirk.
The scholars stipulate that in order for ruqyah to be permissible, it must meet three conditions: that the recitation consists of words of Allah, may He be exalted, or His names and attributes; that it is in Arabic or a language of which the meaning is clear; and that it does not contain any phrases whose meaning is unknown.
If you feel nauseous after performing the legal ruqyah, don’t worry – this is a good sign that evil is being banished. Just remember to drink plenty of water.
It is a form of protection
Ruqyah is the practice of curing illnesses by reciting Qur’anic verses and invocations prescribed by the Messenger of Allah. It is also a form of protection against the evil eye and magic. It is recommended to perform this sunnah adhkar daily, in the morning and evening.
Symptoms of the evil eye, possession of jinns or black magic include feelings of being watched, seeing fast-moving black shadows in the corner of your eyes, and losing weight. A raqi can help treat these symptoms, but it is important to seek treatment early before the problems get worse.
The prophet recited the following verses to protect people from the evil eye:
It is a form of healing
Performing Ruqyah as a form of healing involves reciting verses from the Quran over the sick person and supplicating to Allah for his help. This can be done in conjunction with medical treatments. However, there are certain conditions that must be met in order to perform the ruqyah properly. For example, the reciter should make sincere istighfar, refrain from committing sins, and be in a state of purity. He or she should also try to do good deeds and return rights to those wronged by others.
The reciter should also believe that the ruqyah has no benefit by itself but only through Allah. He or she should also remove all objects from the room that could cause distraction and should not be performed in a state of major impurity (junub). He or she should have complete faith that the illness is cured by Allah alone. In addition, the reciter should recite the Salawat and duas taught by the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him). He or she should also recite the Sunnah morning and evening Adhkar (see Ummah Welfare Trust’s Daily Adhkar book). This will increase the effectiveness of the ruqyah.
It is a form of exorcism
Ruqyah is a form of exorcism that can be used by Muslims to repel demons or jinn. It involves the recitation of Quranic verses, seeking refuge, dhikr and supplication. It is also a part of the Sunnah inherited from the Prophet Muhammad. Unfortunately, many Muslim and non-Muslims have a wrong understanding of this practice, leading to misunderstandings and shirk.
Some raqis write a few ayats of the Quran on a piece of cloth and burn it. They claim that the smell of the smoke will burn, kill or suffocate the jinn. This is a sinful practice that should be avoided.
While it is important to protect yourself from Satan, it is not necessary to use ruqyah. Instead, you can simply follow the Prophet’s guidance and avoid the actions that will attract Satan’s attention. For example, staying away from alcohol and smoking will keep Satan away from you. Similarly, being a kind and merciful person will make him feel good about you and will protect you from his attacks. quran ruqyah
