Ruqyah is a method of seeking refuge and healing through the recitation of the Quran, Allah’s names and attributes and supplication. It was used by many of the Sahabah and Prophet Muhammad (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) for self-treatment and to treat his companions and others.
The Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wasalam) would touch an ailing person and recite the verses of protection, which are found in the following hadiths:
It is recommended that Ruqyah be performed by a Muslim who is knowledgeable in the science and practice of Ruqyah. There are a number of things that are considered important for the effectiveness of Ruqyah, such as the correct timing, recitation of the correct du’as and the physical aspect of blowing with one’s saliva. In addition, the recitation of certain supplications and admonishments has been proven to have a positive impact on the healing process.
There are some people who claim that the Ruqyah they perform works like magic. Some of these claims cannot be verified by other means and are based on placebo effect or other psychological effects. It is also important to note that there are many times when Ruqyah has been successful and people have experienced miracles, but the causes of these miracles are usually related to something else besides the Ruqyah itself.
The Hadiths mention that it is permissible to write the names of Allah and verses from the Quran on a piece of paper or any other material, provided that they do not contain anything that goes against the Sharee’ah. It is also recommended that these names and verses be recited in Arabic, or in a language the meaning of which can be understood. Ruqyah sheets
