📚How is the correct Ruqyah performed?📚

1) Preparation
?The room in which the Ruqyah will take place must comply with Islamic law, i.e. there must be no pictures of living creatures hanging on the wall, no statues set up and no dogs in the room etc.. Also, no music may be heard or smoking may take place there.

?? Women:
All persons present must be dressed in an islamically correct manner. I.e. women will only be treated with the correct hijab (also niqab) and should be dressed in such a way that she is not exposed if she should move around a lot and therefore it is appropriate to put a thick blanket over her body. The woman must not wear perfume.
If the Raqi is a man, the woman may only be treated in the presence of her Mahram (male relative or husband). If she does not have one, then either the wife of the Raqi should be present or she asks a married couple to accompany her. Taking only one other sister or even going alone is not allowed!

?? Men:
Men should wear loose clothing (no tight trousers etc) and should not wear gold jewellery or silk.

?All present should be in a state of wudu if possible.

2) Anamnesis
?The Raqi now asks the patient about his problems and symptoms, addressing specific points, including his physical, psychological and mental state, as well as his dreams, and then evaluates them accordingly. Here it is important that the Raqi also has knowledge about mental and physical illnesses so that there is no misdiagnosis.

3) Aqeedah
?Now before the Raqi starts the Ruqyah he will educate the patient about the correct Aqeedah as this is very important for the healing process and not to fall into the clutches of the Shaytan’s lies. Normally he should talk about the aqeedah for 20-30 minutes unless the patient already has appropriate knowledge. Here it is very important that the Raqi has studied the Aqeedah with scholars of the Ahlu Sunnah before studying Ruqyah.

4th) Ruqyah
First of all, the Raqi must not touch the woman (who is a stranger to him) under any circumstances, not even with gloves, cloths, etc.!
The Raqi now places his hand on the patient’s head, or if the Raqi is a man and he is treating a strange woman, he must sit 2 metres away from her, as Ibn Uthaymin had explained.
He now begins either with Ad3iyat (plural of Du’a) or verses from the Holy Qur’an. He recites them loudly and audibly. He repeats some verses, as these have a strong effect.

?♂️Now possible reactions might occur, e.g. body parts might stiffen, the face might contort, numbness, fainting, epileptic seizure, heat, tiredness/sleep or the Jinn might start talking or animal sounds might be heard. There are other symptoms as well. Here the trained Raqi can see if the diagnosis he made through the anamnesis is confirmed or even completed.
It is important to know that not every patient shows immediate reactions! One can also be affected without reacting immediately! There are cases that have only reacted after months.
If the Jinn speaks, the Raqi will ask the Jinn some questions and make Da3wa with him (invite him to Islam). He should not talk to him too much and explain to the patient beforehand that the Jinn lie 95% of the time! I.e. if the Jinn tells who made the Sihr or how many are in the body or where the Sihr are hidden, he should not be believed, as he only wants to make Fitna and bring the Raqi, as well as the patient, to Shirk.

?The Raqi can take some products to help during the Ruqya session, including Ruqyah water, read oils (Ruqyah oil, black seed oil, olive oil, important is good quality like from @SunnahCure), rose water, Costus (Quist) etc. Also the Raqi can beat the patient (important: the man must not touch the woman) e.g. with a towel, as Imam Ahmad had done.

5th) After the Ruqyah
?If the Jinn has not left the body at the end of the Ruqyah, which is usually the case, then the patient must do Ruqyah therapy at home. The Raqi will write him a therapy plan and explain exactly which products he has to use when and which Ibaadat (acts of worship) are important (we also offer this self treatment as a service in the @SunnahCure).
The patient should come to the Raqi after a while (between 1-4 weeks) and tell him if or what has changed. Accordingly, the therapy plan is supplemented or changed until the patient is cured of his symptoms.

?If the Jinn has gone out of the body, the patient feels liberated and it is assumed that he is cured, the patient should do 1 month of intensive Ruqyah therapy and after this 1 month return to the Raqi, tell him if all symptoms have disappeared and he will be read with Ruqyah again to be able to say definitively whether the patient is cured or not, as many Jinn here are good actors and only pretend to have converted to Islam or gone out of the body, although he is still there. This is taught to the Raqi professionally in his Ruqyah studies so he will take heed of this in shaa Allah.

All good comes from Allah subhana wa ta3ala and all bad comes from me and shaytan.

?What is the illicit Ruqyah? ?
The illicit Ruqyah is not spoken with the Arabic tongue and done with that which is outside the Qur’an and Sunnah.
It is one of the deeds of the Shaytan. They are performed to get closer to the Shaytan, just as it is practiced by the deceivers, sorcerers and wavers.

?What are the 3 pillars of authentic Ruqyah? ?

  1. It must be from the Qur’an and the Sunnah
  2. It must be performed in the Arabic language
  3. The Raqi (who reads the Ruqyah) and the Murtaqi (on whom it is read) must both be convinced that the effect of the Ruqyah is from Allah subhanahu wa ta’ala alone when HE gives the cure.

?3 Conditions of Ruqyah Ash Shar’iah ?

  1. Without Shirk (idolatry/polytheism)
  2. Without sorcerer/sorcery
  3. The one who makes Ruqyah must have knowledge on the subject.

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?
