Writing blasphemous and heretic talismans and satanic symbols for curing patients is another unlawful practice that is rampant nowadays. On being enquired by the patient about the symbols and talismans the raqi says that he has written the names of the powerful kings of jinnat in order to scare the jinn so that they leave the patient's body. Such encrypted words or symbols are mostly written in Cyrillic. Ibn Taymiyyah said, "Ruqyah can not be done by saying or writing something that is unreadable especially if it involves shirk (associating partners with Allah). Such practices are deemed to be unlawful and forbidden."
Some fraud raqis use amulets and beads claimed to belong to the seven Solomon ages. Sometimes they also melt lead on the heads of kids in order to cure them of their psychological fears or other disorders. These practices are also baseless and should be avoided.
Suffocating the patient until he faints and the jinn lurking inside his body start talking is yet another form of abuse in the name of treatment. This practice is not just unlawful but dangerous as well as it may cause serious damage to the patient. Suffocation can also lead to a stroke that causes hemiplegia. In this context, Prophet Mohammad (saw) says,
‘Leave that which puts you in doubt for that which does not put you in doubt.’ (Tirmidhi on the authority of Al-Hasan bin Ali).
This method of ruqyah is not mentioned in the Qur'an or in the Hadith. On the contrary Islam asks us to shield our bodies from any kind of danger and harm.
