Narrated Al-Aswad (ra) I asked Hazrat Ayesha (ra) about the possibility of treating poisonous stings such as a snake-bite or a scorpion sting with a Ruqya. She said, "Allah’s (swt) apostle (saw) permitted the treatment of poisonous sting with Ruqya." Sahih Bukhari Hadith (Volume 7, Number 637). This hadith enlightens us about the significance of ruqyah in curing diseases.
Narrated Um Salama (ra) Prophet Mohammad (peace be upon him) saw in her house a girl who had a black spot on her face. He said. "She is under the effect of an evil eye; so treat her with a Ruqya."
Sahih Bukhari Hadith (Volume 7, Number 635)
This hadith throws light on two facts. Firstly it proves that evil eye is a real problem which can affect any one amongst us and secondly it highlights the fact that ruqyah is an effective cure for evil eye.
There is enough evidence from the hadith that proves the existence of the phenomenon of evil eye. Most people of this nation (Muslims) will die due to evil eye after what Allah (swt) has decreed. Prophet Mohammad (saw) said: "Most of the people who will die from my nation after what Allah has decreed will be due to evil eye." (Fath al-haqq al Mubeen, As-Sahih, 747). The evil eye is a reality and a person should seek protection from it. Prophet Mohammad (saw) said: " The evil is true (reality)...." (Sahih Muslim, 2188)
It is permitted in Islam to seek Ruqyah as a cure for this problem because as Annas (ra) narrated that the Prophet (saw) allowed seeking Ruqyah for fever or the evil eye. (Sahih Muslim 2197).
