The need of the hour
Bismillahir Rahman nir Raheem
In the present times corrupt practices are rampant and people try to make money by hook or by crook. Quacks do not mind putting any body’s life at risk just to make a few bucks. In such a situation gullible people can be easily mislead by such fraudsters who can take advantage of their innocence and more importantly their ignorance.
So the need of the hour is to create awareness about what is right and what is wrong in terms of ruqyah healing so that no body falls into a trap set by crook raqis.
While doing ruqyah with Quran is permitted in Islam yet there are some fraud raqis who have made ruqyah healing a means of extracting money from ignorant patients. As I have mentioned in my earlier posts there are a plethora of ruqyah clinics which are making lots of money by doing ruqyah in a way that is not in compliance with the Sunnah method.
Besides the anti-sunnah method of doing ruqyah there is yet another factor that needs to be clearly understood. There is a clear demarcation between ruqyah and black magic. Prophet Mohammad (saw) clearly prohibited all types of magical ruqyah. Narrated Jabir that Prophet Mohammad (saw) said:
‘Nashrah (A magical spell that is cast to counter another magical spell) is of the doing of Satan.’ Recorded by Ahmad and Abu Dawud and verified to be authentic by al-Albani (as-Sahihah no. 2760).
Just like consulting soothsayers is prohibited similarly seeking help from magicians has been prohibited in Islam as well. Whereas fake magicians can go to any length to captivate the minds of ignorant people the real magicians take help from jinnaat and satans. They use methods that contain kufr to cast magic spells. Therefore their spells, including ruqyah, is strictly forbidden in Islam. Any Muslim who takes their help for doing ruqyah contradicts his belief in Prophet Mohammad (saw). Abu Hurayrah (ra) reported that the Prophet (Peace and Blessing upon Him) said:
Allah, may He be Glorified and Exalted, states
“And the magician will never be successful, no matter whatever amount (of skill) he may attain.” (Taha: 69).
A ruqyah must therefore be performed only by a practicing muslim and a pious person because Allah (swt) says in the Holy Quran “Verily, Allah accepts only from those who are Al-Muttaqun (the pious” (Al-Ma'idah: 27)
