Ruqyah is a spiritual prayer that can be used to heal diseases and evil eye. It is entirely based on the Holy Quran and ahadith. Therefore, the right way of ruqyah healing is the one that is based on the Sunnah of our Prophet Mohammad (saw). Any kind of deviation from the Suunah is unlawful, as I have discussed in my previous posts.
The correct ways of ruqyah healing which have been practiced by Prophet Mohammad (saw) are as follows:
Ruqyah healing with help of Allah's (swt) name: Abu Sa’id al-Khudri (ra) reported that Jibril came to the Prophet Mohammad (saw) and asked, "O Muhammad, are you sick?" He replied, ‘Yes.’ Jibril said: ‘Bismillahi arqik, min kulli shayin yuthik, min sharri kulli nafsin aw ayni hasid’ (translation: With Allah's Name I shelter you (give you ruqyah), from all that ails you, from the evil of every soul, or that of the envious eyes. May Allah cure you; with Allah's Name I shelter you." Muslim.
Ruqyah healing with the Holy Quran: Hazrat Ayesha (ra) reported that when Prophet Mohammad (saw) visited her, she was being treated with ruqyah by a woman. Prophet Mohammad (saw) said, ‘Treat her only with the Holy Quran’ Recorded by Ibn Hibban and verified to be authentic by al-Albani in as-Sahihah no. 1931.
