Ruqyah by Sheikh Abdulrahman As-Sudais
What is Ruqya? Linguistically Ruqyah is an incantation: a series of words said with the intention of achieving a particular effect, particularly when the incantion involves blowing. Linguistically, this includes things like magic spells, when they are said verbally. Islamically Ayat of the Qur'an, authentic du'aa, and the perfect names and attributes of Allāh that a Muslim reads as an incantation with the intention of treating himself or another, seeking a cure from Allāh alone. What is Ruqyah for? Every illness, whether physical, psychological, or spiritual; whether the illness has a known medical cure or not. We must remember that the cure is from Allah - therefore, we perform ruqya with the belief that no harm or benefit can reach us, except with Allah's will. One of the greatest tests that a person can face is their own success: do not attach success to yourself nor become arrogant, and remember the lessons of the Battle of Hunayn - A strong arm A good aim If any of these elements are missing, then even if the other elements are complete, there is a fear that the weapon will not be effective. Likewise, even if you are using the best weapon against the shaytaan: the Book of Allāh, you may not get the result that you want if there are other conditions missing. Should I read the Qur'an? Almost always this question is unnecessary. The Qur'an is a cure for every illness, so you don't need to worry about what kind of illness it is. There is no harm in the Qur'an and it brings nothng but good. You do not need to have memorised the whole Qur'an. Expectations and Time Frame: The completeness in Tawheed - Ibn Uthaymeen The first level: that (the person) seeks for someone to perform ruqyah (upon him) - and this person has missed out on kamaal (completeness). The second level: that he does not stop someone from performing ruqyah (upon him); and this person has not missed out on completeness because he did not seek ruqyah nor request it. The third level: that he prevents the one who is to perform ruqyah upon him , and this is in opposition to the Sunnah. For the Prophet sall Allaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam did not prevent ‘Aaishah from performing ruqyah upon him. And likewise the Companions did not prevent anyone from performing ruqyah upon them because this does not affect (a person’s) tawakkul (reliance upon Allaah). Al-Bukhaari (6472) and Muslim (220) narrated from Ibn ‘Abbaas (may Allah be pleased with him) that the Messenger of Allah (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) said: “Seventy thousand of my ummah will enter Paradise without being brought to account; they are the ones who did not ask for ruqyah or believe in omens or use cautery and they put their trust in their Lord.” Concerning this hadeeth - Ibn Al-Qayyim (may Allah have mercy on him) said: "That is because these people will enter Paradise without being called to account because of the perfection of their Tawheed, therefore he described them as people who did not ask others to perform ruqyah for them. Hence he said “and they put their trust in their Lord.” Because of their complete trust in their Lord, their contentment with Him, their faith in Him, their being pleased with Him and their seeking their needs from Him, they do not ask people for anything, be it ruqyah or anything else, and they are not influenced by omens and superstitions that could prevent them from doing what they want to do, because superstition detracts from and weakens Tawheed."
