Conditions for Ruqya:

Ulamah of Islam have declared that its permissible for Muslims to use the verses of the Qur’aan as Ruqya (for healing) spiritual as well as physical ailments, to blow on the patients or to blow on water and make the patient drink the water. The famous Hadeeth Master Shaykh (Al-Hafidh) Ibn Haj’r Al-Asqalani (RA) who wrote the famous commentary on the Saheeh of Imam Bukhari (RA) has recorded three conditions for Ruqya:

" وَقَدْ أَجْمَعَ الْعُلَمَاء عَلَى جَوَاز الرُّقَى عِنْد اِجْتِمَاع ثَلَاثَة شُرُوط : أَنْ يَكُون بِكَلَامِ اللَّه تَعَالَى أَوْ بِأَسْمَائِهِ وَصِفَاته , وَبِاللِّسَانِ الْعَرَبِيّ أَوْ بِمَا يُعْرَف مَعْنَاهُ مِنْ غَيْره , وَأَنْ يَعْتَقِد أَنَّ الرُّقْيَة لَا تُؤْثَر بِذَاتِهَا بَلْ بِذَاتِ اللَّه تَعَالَى .

The scholars are unanimously agreed that Ruqya is permissible if three conditions are met:


{jb_bluedisc}1{/jb_bluedisc} It should be done by reciting the words of Allah (SWT) or His names and attributes,


{jb_bluedisc}2{/jb_bluedisc} And in Arabic or in a language the meaning of which is understood,


{jb_bluedisc}3{/jb_bluedisc} And with the belief that ruqyah has no effect in and of itself; rather it is only effective by the will of Allah (SWT)


All Ruqyas are taken from the verses of the Qur'aan are taken from Scattered Pearls recorded from the personal collection of Shaykh (Maulana) Muhammad Umar Palunpuri (RA)
