Conditions of the Ruqyah Ash Shar’iah Ruqya

ضوابط الرقية الشرعية
Conditions of the Ruqyah Ash Shar’iah

  1. ـ ألا تكون رقية شركية.
    Without Shirk (idolatry/polytheism).

The Messenger of Allah said: اعرضوا عليّ رقاكم، لا بأس بالرقي ما لم يكن فيه شرك
It is permissible to make Rukyah but without Shirk (idolatry).

2.ألا تكون رقية سحرية
Without a wizard/sorcerer

حيث بيّن جلَّ وعلا أن الساحر لا يفلح أبداً، فقال سبحانه:

Allah says:
﴿ وَلَا يُفْلِحُ السَّاحِرُ حَيْثُ أَتَى ﴾
20:69 {{ …and it will not be well with the sorcerer wherever he may come . }}

It is forbidden to make Ruqyah by means of sorcerers or magic. Whoever does such a thing invalidates his Iman and flies out of Islam.

3.يجب أن تكون من ذوي العلم وأهل التقوى والصلاح، ولو كانوا من غير أهل العلم، حيث قال تعالى:
The one who wants to make Ruqyah (الراقية) must have knowledge on this subject
Allah said :
﴿ إِنَّمَا يَتَقَبَّلُ اللَّهُ مِنْ الْمُتَّقِينَ ﴾
5:27 {{ Allah accepts only from the God-fearing. }}

4.ـ أن تكون الرقية بعبارات و معان مفهومة
The scholars say that ruqyah is permissible with the following 3 factors:

1.) One reads the Qur’an and the supplications of the Messenger of Allah.
2) This must be done in Arabic.
3) The Raqi must understand the meaning of the Qur’an which he reads.

My dear brothers and sisters in Islam,
nowadays you see Ruqaat doing things that you cannot read in Islamic books or what you might hear from the scholars. Yet the person says that he is an expert in that field and to that he cannot even recite the Qur’an correctly. What kind of Raqi is this?

There will be the sequel in the 2nd part, with Allah’s permission.
