Ai-Ruqyah : A foimula (consisting of supplications anu may also incluue
light spitting) employeu by the one who is stiuck by uisease like being poisoneu
oi }inn possession, etc. anu othei than that fiom the vaiious uiseases. (lbnul

/%0)1 .* "#$%&'

Theie aie two types of Ruqyah: Legislative Ruqyah anu the
polytheistic Ruqyah , which is foibiuuen. The legislative Ruqyah must
fulfill the following conuitions:
1. That it is a Ruqyah using the Woius of Allah the Nost Bigh, oi by Bis
Names & Attiibutes, oi using Piophetic uu'aas (supplications)
2. That it is (ieciteu) in the Aiabic language oi by what (evei language) it's
meanings aie known.
S. That the (the patient) believes that the Ruqyah itself cannot effect him but
that the effectiveness is fiom Allah the Nost Bigh, anu;
4. That the Ruqyah uoes not (contain) any piohibiteu featuie; the Ruqyah is
not peifoimeu uuiing janaabah (majoi impuiity), oi in a giave oi toilet.

Ibn Baji saiu (Fath 1u2u6) "The Scholais have agieeu upon the peimissibility
of Ruqyah when these conuitions aie all met." (Refer to Ar-Ruqiyotusb-
Sbor'eeyob, B. AbJullob ot-Toyyoor, p.79)

The eviuence foi using Qui'aan foi Ruqyah anu its effectiveness in tieating both
physical anu spiiitual uiseases is establisheu in the statement of Allah:

"Anu We senu uown of the Qui'n that which is a healing anu a meicy to those
who believe" (Al-'lsro', 17:82)

The piactice of Ruqyah pie-uates the appeaiance of Islam in the Aiabian
Peninsula anu was iefineu anu puiifieu by the Piophet . In one Baueeth, a
family fiom the Companions came to the Piophet anu ieau to him a Ruqyah,
seeking his appioval, which they employeu foi scoipion stings. Aftei heaiing the
Ruqyah anu seeing that it containeu nothing polytheistic, the Piophet saiu: "I
see no haim in it, whoevei among you is able to help his biothei, shoulu uo so."

This inciuent was likely to be in iesponse to his saying: "Show me youi Ruqyahs,
theie is no haim in Ruqyah as long as theie is no Shiik in it." (Huslim S4S7)

"Foi any uisease theie is a cuie, anu when the cuie matches the uisease, the
peison iecoveis by the will of Allah..." (ReloteJ by Huslim)

- S -

Naiiateu Abu Buiaiiah (iaui Allahu anhu) that the Piophet saiu: "Theie is no
uisease that Allah has sent uown except that Be also has sent uown its
tieatment." (Tbe Book of HeJicine: Sobib Bukbori)

Naiiateu 'Aisha: The Piophet oiueieu me oi somebouy else to uo Ruqya (if
theie was uangei) fiom an evil eye. (Sobib Bukbori: volume 7, Book 71, Number

Naiiateu 0m Salama: that the Piophet saw in hei house a giil whose face hau
a black spot. Be saiu. "She is unuei the effect of an evil eye; so tieat hei with a
Ruqya." (Sobib Bukbori: volume 7, Book 71, Number 6SS)

Naiiateu Al-Aswau: I askeu 'Aisha about tieating poisonous stings (a snake-bite
oi a scoipion sting) with a Ruqya. She saiu, "The Piophet alloweu the
tieatment of poisonous sting with Ruqya." (Sobib Bukbori: volume 7, Book 71,
Number 6S7)

With iegaiu to the haueeth naiiateu by Nuslim (22u), accoiuing to which the
Piophet (peace anu blessings of Allaah be upon him) uesciibeu the seventy
thousanu of this ummah who will entei Paiauise without being biought to
account oi punisheu, anu in which it says: "They aie those who uiu not iecite
iuqyah oi ask foi iuqyah to be uone, anu they uiu not believe in bau omens anu
they put theii tiust in theii Loiu" - the phiase "they uiu not iecite iuqyah" is the
woius of the naiiatoi, not of the Piophet (peace anu blessings of Allaah be upon
him). Bence al-Bukhaaii naiiateu this haueeth (no. S42u) anu he uiu not
mention this phiase.
Shaykh al-Islam Ibn Taymiyah (may Allaah have meicy on him) saiu:
These people aie piaiseu because they uiu not ask anyone to iecite iuqyah foi
them, anu iuqyah is a type of uu'aa', so they uiu not ask otheis to piay foi them.
The phiase "anu they uiu not iecite iuqyah" which is mentioneu in the
haueeth is a mistake (on the pait of the naiiatoi), foi theii iuqyah foi
themselves anu foi otheis is a goou ueeu. The Piophet (peace anu blessings of
Allaah be upon him) ieciteu iuqyah foi himself anu foi otheis; he uiu not ask
anyone to iecite iuqyah foi him. Bis ieciting iuqyah foi himself anu otheis was
like his making uu'aa' foi himself anu otheis; this is something that is enjoineu,
foi all the Piophets askeu of Allaah anu piayeu to Bim, as Allaah tells us in the
stoiies of Auam, Ibiaaheem, Noosa anu otheis.

came to the Piophet anu saiu: "0 Nuhammau ! Bo you feel sick.'' Be
saiu, "Yes.'' }ibiil supplicateu thus (i.e., he peifoimeu Ruqyah):

"Bismillahi aiqika, min kulli shay'in yu'uhika, min shaiii kulli nafsin aw `aynin
hasiuin, Allahu yashfika, bismillahi aiqika. |With the Name of Allah. I iecite ovei
you (to cleanse you) fiom all that tioubles you, anu fiom eveiy haimful mischief
anu fiom the evil of the eyes of an enviei. Allah will cuie you; anu with the Name
of Allah, I iecite ovei youj.'' (Huslim)

J.77),-&6%; This Bauith cleaily tells us that the Piophet was not fiee fiom
the basic attiibutes of human natuie anu occasionally he also fell ill. Angel }ibiil
(uabiiel) theiefoie piayeu foi his health anu safety against all those things
which coulu haim him. These piayeis shoulu be ieciteu aftei the Piophet's

Ibn `Abbas (Nay Allah be pleaseu with them) iepoiteu: The Piophet saiu, "Be
who visits a sick peison who is not on the point of ueath anu supplicates seven

As'alullahal-`Azima Rabbal-`Aishil-`Azimi, an yashfiyaka (I beseech Allah the
uieat, the Rubb of the uieat Thione, to heal you), Allah will ceitainly heal him
fiom that sickness.'' (Abu BowuJ, At-TirmiJbi)

J.77),-&6%; Theie is always a gieat ceitainty that Allah will iesponu to a
supplication which spiings fiom a sinceie, veiacious heait. 0ne shoulu,
theiefoie, piay foi a patient with full conviction anu ieassuiance of heait.

"Allahumma auhhibil-ba'sa, Rabban-nasi, ishfi, Antash-Shafi, la shifa'a illa
shifa'uka, shifaan la yughauiiu saqaman |0 Allah! the Rubb of mankinu! Remove
this uisease anu cuie (him oi hei)! You aie the uieat Cuiei. Theie is no cuie but
thiough You, which leaves behinu no uiseasej.'' (Al-Bukbori, Huslim)

Abuullah bin Ami bin Al-'As (iaui Allahu anhu) iepoiteu that he heaiu the
Piophet saying, "If anyone invokes blessings upon me once, Allah will bestow
blessings upon him ten times ovei." (Huslim)

Ibn Nas'uu (iaui Allahu anhu) iepoiteu that the Piophet saiu, "The people
neaiest to me on the Bay of }uugment will be the ones most conscientious in
invoking blessings upon me." (TirmiJbi reporteJ tbis boJitb, onJ be consiJers it o

of Allah visiteu me uuiing my illness anu supplicateu,

"0 Allah! Cuie Sa`u. 0 Allah! Cuie Sa`u. 0' Allah! Cuie Sa`u.'' (Huslim)

J.77),-&6%; To piay foi the health anu iecoveiy of the patient, paiticulaily
utteiing his name, is commenuable. Fuitheimoie, one shoulu iepeateuly piay to
Allah anu beseech Bim with supplication till Be iesponus.

Ibn `Abbas (Nay Allah be pleaseu with them) iepoiteu: The Piophet visiteu a
beuouin who was sick. Whenevei he visiteu an ailing peison, he woulu say,

"La ba'sa, tahuiun in shaa Allah |No haim, (it will be a) puiification (fiom sins),
if Allah willsj.'' (Al-Bukbori)

J.77),-&6%; Accoiuing to this Bauith, a patient shoulu be tolu that his uisease
will puige out his sins. To sit besiue the sick, to comfoit his heait anu to say a

Abu Sa`iu Al-Khuuii anu Abu Buiaiiah (Nay Allah be pleaseu with them)
iepoiteu: The Nessengei of Allah saiu, "If a peison says:

`La ilaha illallahu wallahu Akbai (Theie is no tiue gou except Allah anu Allah is
the uieatest)', his Rubb iesponus to him anu affiims: `(Yes!) Theie is no tiue gou
except I, anu I am the uieatest.' When he says:

`La ilaha illallahu Wahuahu la shaiika Lahu (Theie is no tiue gou except Allah,
the 0ne, Be has no paitnei).' Allah (subhanahu wa ta'ala) affiims: `(Yes!) Theie
is no tiue gou except I. I have no paitnei.' When he says:

`La ilaha illallahu Lahul mulku wa Lahul-hamuu (the soveieignty belongs to Bim
anu all the piaise is uue to Bim).' Be (subhanahu wa ta'ala) affiims: `(Yes!) Theie
is no tiue gou except I, Nine is the piaise anu to Ne belongs the soveieignty.'
When he says:

`La ilaha illallahu wa la hawla wa la quwwata illa Billah (Theie is no tiue gou
except Allah, anu theie is no might anu powei but with Allah).' Be (subhanahu
wa ta'ala) affiims: `(Yes!) Theie is no tiue gou except I, anu theie is no might anu
powei but with Ne.''' The Nessengei of Allah auueu, "Be who iecites this
uuiing his illness anu uies, will not be toucheu by the Fiie (Bell).'' (At-TirmiJbu)

J.77),-&6%; This Bauith points out the excellence of the woius mentioneu
above. This is so because of gieat meaning they have, namely the fiim belief in
Allah, Bis 0neness anu uloiification; that to Bim Alone we shoulu ietuin, upon
Bim Alone we shoulu iely, anu to Bim Alone we shoulu expiess giatefulness. If
somebouy utteis them uuiing his illness, his life is suie to come to an enu in a
goou way, that is, he will go to }annah.

`Aishah (Nay Allah be pleaseu with him) iepoiteu: When a peison complaineu to
the Piophet about an ailment oi suffeieu fiom a soie oi a wounu, the Piophet
woulu touch the giounu with his foiefingei anu then iaise it (Sufyan bin
`0yainah, the naiiatoi, uemonstiateu this with his foiefingei) anu woulu iecite:

`Bismil-lahi, tuibatu aiuina, biieeqati ba`uina, yushfa bihi saqeemunaa, bi 'iuhni
Rabbina' (With the Name of Allah, the uust of oui giounu mixeu with the saliva
of some of us woulu cuie oui patient with the peimission of oui Rubb).'' (Al-
Bukbori, Huslim)

J.77),-&6%; The Piophet woulu put his foiefingei on eaith anu then mix
his spittle with the uust sticking to it. Afteiwaius, he woulu put it on the
patient's pain-spot oi wounu anu uttei the saiu supplication. This simple act
woulu cuie the patient. Some believe that it was peculiai only to the Piophet
anu was inueeu his miiacle because the paiticulai uust was of Al-Nauinah's soil
with the Piophet's spittle being of a unique quality. But Ibn Bajai uiffeis fiom
this view. Spittle anu uust, accoiuing to him, aie simply exteinal means anu the
cuiative effect in them comes fiom Allah Alone. Seconuly, we may tuin to the
pious people to seek theii blessings anu piayeis foi the iemoval of oui ailments
anu tioubles, pioviueu the spiiitual tieatment is beieft of amulets anu othei
polytheistic ways.
