Ruqiyah Therapy

Ruqiyah refers to the healing method based on the Quran and hadith through the recitation of the Quran, seeking of refuge, remembrance and supplication that is used as a means of treating sickness and other problems, by reading verses of the Quran, the names and attributes of Allah, or by using the prayers in Arabic or in a language the meaning of which is understood. The use of ruqiyah as a method of treatment is popular among the Islamic alternative healing practitioners. This method of ruqiyah is based on the recommendations and practices carried out by the Prophet (pbuh) for self-treatment or to help his Sahabah and others.

Conditions for Ruqiyah

Ruqiyah is a du’ā. The intention should always be to ask Allah to remove the evil by the words of the Qur’ān.

One should recite loudly and clearly, with firm conviction and belief in Allah, who Alone gives cure.

Like all treatment, consistency is key. Daily recitation, du‘ā’ and other treatments must be maintained for positive results.
