What is Ruqya (Taweez)

Posted on: June 27, 2008


Ruqya means incantations. There are different types of incantations, non Islamic incantations and Islamic incantation.Ruqya is used to treat people with the help of Allah azawajal for the affects of Sihr (Black Magic), Al-Ayn (Evil Eye) and S’ar (Possession) using Ayaats (verses) of the Qur’an al Kareem and the supplications taught by our beloved Prophet Sallallah alayhi wasallam through the noble Ahadith.

Today the Saharah (Magicians) are a big weapon used by Iblees to rob the Muslims of their Imaan, for the Messenger of Allah azawajal said: “Whoever goes to a Magician and believes what he says has disbelieved in the message sent to Muhammad Salallah alayhi wasalam” (Sahih al Jamiyah Hadith 5939). So it is important that the Muslims are aware of the traps of Iblees in using these Saharah and steer well away from such people.

The Tradition of Ruqya

Sahih Bukhari Hadith (Volume 7, Number 631) Narrated ‘Aisha (May Allah be pleased with her)

During the Prophet’s (prayers and peace be upon him) fatal illness, he used to recite the Mu’auwidhat (Surat An-Nas and Surat Al-Falaq) and then blow his breath over his body. When his illness was aggravated, I used to recite those two Suras and blow my breath over him and make him rub his body with his own hand for its blessings.” (Ma’mar asked Az-Zuhri: How did the Prophet (prayers and peace be upon him) use to blow? Az-Zuhri said: He used to blow on his hands and then passed them over his face.)

Sahih Bukhari Hadith (Volume 7, Number 632) Narrated Abu Said Al-Khudri (May Allah be pleased with him)

Some of the companions of the Prophet (prayers and peace be upon him) came across a tribe amongst the tribes of the Arabs, and that tribe did not entertain them. While they were in that state, the chief of that tribe was bitten by a snake (or stung by a scorpion). They said, (to the companions of the Prophet (prayers and peace be upon him) ), “Have you got any medicine with you or anybody who can treat with Ruqya?” The Prophet’s (prayers and peace be upon him) companions said, “You refuse to entertain us, so we will not treat (your chief) unless you pay us for it.” So they agreed to pay them a flock of sheep. One of them (the Prophet’s (prayers and peace be upon him) companions) started reciting Surat-al-Fatiha and gathering his saliva and spitting it (at the snake-bite). The patient got cured and his people presented the sheep to them, but they said, “We will not take it unless we ask the Prophet (prayers and peace be upon him) (whether it is lawful).” When they asked him, he smiled and said, “How do you know that Surat-al-Fatiha is a Ruqya? Take it (flock of sheep) and assign a share for me.”

Sahih Bukhari Hadith (Volume 7, Number 633) Narrated Ibn ‘Abbas (May Allah be pleased with him)

Some of the companions of the Prophet (prayers and peace be upon him) passed by some people staying at a place where there was water, and one of those people had been stung by a scorpion. A man from those staying near the water, came and said to the companions of the Prophet (prayers and peace be upon him) , “Is there anyone among you who can do Ruqya as near the water there is a person who has been stung by a scorpion.” So one of the Prophet’s (prayers and peace be upon him) companions went to him and recited Surat-al-Fatiha for a sheep as his fees. The patient got cured and the man brought the sheep to his companions who disliked that and said, “You have taken wages for reciting Allah’s Book.” When they arrived at Medina, they said, -O Allah’s Apostle! (This person) has taken wages for reciting Allah’s Book.” On that Allah’s Apostle said, “You are most entitled to take wages for doing a Ruqya with Allah’s Book.”

Sahih Bukhari Hadith (Volume 7, Number 634) Narrated ‘Aisha (May Allah be pleased with her)

The Prophet (prayers and peace be upon him) ordered me or somebody else to do Ruqya (if there was danger) from an evil eye.

Sahih Bukhari Hadith (Volume 7, Number 635) Narrated Um Salama (May Allah be pleased with her)

The Prophet (prayers and peace be upon him) saw in her house a girl whose face had a black spot. He said. “She is under the effect of an evil eye; so treat her with a Ruqya.”

Sahih Bukhari Hadith (Volume 7, Number 636) Narrated Abu Huraira (May Allah be pleased with him)

The Prophet (prayers and peace be upon him) said, “The effect of an evil eye is a fact.” And he prohibited tattooing.

Sahih Bukhari Hadith (Volume 7, Number 637) Narrated Al-Aswad (May Allah be pleased with him)

I asked ‘Aisha about treating poisonous stings (a snake-bite or a scorpion sting) with a Ruqya. She said, “The Prophet (prayers and peace be upon him) allowed the treatment of poisonous sting with Ruqya.”

Sahih Bukhari Hadith (Volume 7, Number 638) Narrated ‘Abdul ‘Aziz (May Allah be pleased with him)

Thabit and I went to Anas bin Malik. Thabit said, “O Abu Hamza! I am sick.” On that Anas said, “Shall I treat you with the Ruqya of Allah’s Apostle?” Thabit said, “Yes.” Anas recited, “O Allah! The Lord of the people, the Remover of trouble! (Please) cure (Heal) (this patient), for You are the Healer. None brings about healing but You; a healing that will leave behind no ailment.”

Sahih Bukhari Hadith (Volume 7, Number 639) Narrated ‘Aisha (May Allah be pleased with her)

The Prophet (prayers and peace be upon him) used to treat some of his wives by passing his right hand over the place of ailment and used to say, “O Allah, the Lord of the people! Remove the trouble and heal the patient, for You are the Healer. No healing is of any avail but Yours; healing that will leave behind no ailment.”

Sahih Bukhari Hadith (Volume 7, Number 640) Narrated ‘Aisha (May Allah be pleased with her)

Allah’s Apostle (prayers and peace be upon him) used to treat with a Ruqya saying, “O the Lord of the people! Remove the trouble. The cure is in Your Hands, and there is none except You who can remove it (the disease). “

Narrated Ibn Abbas: Rasulullah (Sallallahu alaihe wasallam) said, “Seventy thousand people of my followers will enter Paradise without accounts, and they are those who do not practice Ar-Ruqya and do not see an evil omen in things, and put their trust in their Lord.

Bukhari Book76 Hadith 479

I have read this hadith too. But the entire above matter says that Ar-Ruqya is something which should be performed.

I would like to make clear all the visitors of my blog that I am not Rqaqi, Aamil, or Spiritual Healer. Any Raaqi you contact via my blog, know they do not represent this blog or me.

 

In my knowledge these are few dedicated places where you can get your spiritual healing according to Quran and Sunnah. I can recommend these places as in my knowledge they works according to Quran and Sunnah; but I cannot be made responsible either individually or severally for any untoward incidents.
