What is Ruqyah?

‘Ruqyah’ is the practice of treating illnesses through Qur’ānic āyāt, and invocations prescribed by the Messenger of Allah ﷺ. It is a means of cure for evil eye, magic, jinn and physical ailments.
The Qur’ān offers complete solace to a believer – both spiritually and physically. Ruqyah should therefore play an essential role in our lives. Allah (subḥānahū wa taʿālā) says, “And say: The truth has come, and falsehood has vanished. Surely falsehood is ever bound to vanish by its very nature.

وَنُنَزِّلُ مِنَ الْقُرْ‌آنِ مَا هُوَ شِفَاءٌ وَرَ‌حْمَةٌ لِّلْمُؤْمِنِيْنَ
And We send down in the Qur’ān that which is a cure and a mercy for the believers (17:81-2).

As well as providing a means of cure, Ruqyah is an excellent way for the believers to build their īmān and reaffirm their tawḥīd for Allah (subḥānahū wa taʿālā). This is because seeking treatment through the Glorious Qur’ān undoubtedly demonstrates complete belief in the Book of Allah (subḥānahū wa taʿālā).

The Messenger of Allah ﷺ said: “Make good use of the two cures: honey and the Qur’ān.” (Ibn Mājah)
‘Ā’ishah (raḍiy Allāhu ‘anhā) said: “When the Messenger of Allah ﷺ was ill, Jibrīl (‘alayhis-salām) performed Ruqyah on him.” (Muslim)

Ibn al-Qayyim (raḥimahullāh) wrote:‘The Qur’ān is the complete healing for all mental, spiritual and physical diseases; all the diseases of this world and the Hereafter. But not everyone is guided to use it for the purpose of healing. If the sick person uses the Qur’ān for healing in the proper way, and applies it to his disease with sincerity, faith, complete acceptance and firm conviction, fulfilling all its conditions, then no disease can resist it.’

How can a disease resist the words of the Lord of the heavens and earth which, if He had revealed it to the mountains, they would have crumbled, and if He had revealed it to the earth, it would have broken apart? There is no sickness, spiritual or physical, but in the Qur’ān there is that which indicates its remedy, its cause and how to protect against it for those who are blessed with the understanding of His Book.’ (Zād al-Ma‘ād)

So, Ruqyah refers to the Islamic practice of seeking healing and protection through recitation and supplications from the Quran. It involves reciting specific verses and prayers to seek relief from spiritual ailments, evil eye, possession, and other afflictions. The Quran and Sunnah serve as the foundation for Ruqyah, as they provide guidance and remedies to address these spiritual issues.
