BEWARE OF THE FRAUD ‘RAAQIS’
PLUNDERING THE QUR’AAN FOR HARAAM MONEY
Among the Signs of Qiyaamah mentioned in the Hadith is that “The world will be pursued with deeds of the Aakhirat.”
Acts of ibaadat, the objective of which is salvation and reward in the Hereafter, will be used for monetary and other despicable worldly motives. Using the Qur’aan Majeed by these frauds for fleecing the ignorant public and filling their coffers with the ill-gotten monetary gains comes within the scope of this Hadith. The Qur’aan which is to be used for the acquisition of the gains of the Aakhirat is being evilly manipulated for the miserable monetary gain of this dunya.
Complaining about these bogus ‘raaqis’, a sister writes:
“Assalaamu A Alaikum
Respected people of sound knowledge and intellect,
I have a few questions regarding this Ruqya SA hoax system of removing jinn, sihr and jadu from people. In my opinion it is just a great fraud. These crooks are busting the rands and piling their pockets with money. They rank in shaytaan’s structures of evil.
Firstly, I speak from personal experience. I was treated by these crank fellows and subjected to their shaytaani lies and tricks. What I realized is that although they talk of Quran and Sunnah, they use it as a friont to deceive and fleece people. After being treated by these bogus ‘raaqis’, instead of feeling better one usually gets worse, and most jinn attacks become more severe up to the point where reading Quran, Salaah and even the Athaan become impossible.
Whenever one gets treated by the Sheikh Bin Halima himself you are told that you are experiencing a severe case of sihr and that the jinn are “generals with stripes” and have special ranks. Any of the ‘raaqis’ who has studied under this fraudulent Sheikh will charge a fee of R400, and every second week there is a follow-up session for a fee of R210. A percentage is paid to the centre from the money from which .These crook ‘raaqis’ milk you dry. You have to keep coming back because your case is always extremely severe, and sometimes like in my case so severe that they need a couple of months to treat you. The weird part is that they ask you: ‘Who do you feel is troubling you.’ Thereafter, the ‘catcher’ catches jinn that conveniently come from that very person you had just mentioned. The ‘jinn’ says that the named person is sending him. When being treated by Zain Bahadoor in Lenasia, one goes into a heavy like trance and you feel like you are a zombie. You never know when you are ‘yourself’ and after reading this special ‘salaah’ of his with a 100 wazeefa to bring you and your spouse together, you land up sitting in a serious case of Talaaq. You don’t even know what hit you. One minute you and your husband are fine and suddenly it’s like a heavy bomb explodes. You go into a hectic fight for no reason and next minute your husband is screaming Talaaq at the top of his voice. He is completely confused and so are you.
My question to the Majlis is that: If these people are following the Prophetic system of Quran and Sunnah, why is it that every sihr case is so severe and that so many aayats, cupping and treatments need to be done when Allah sent down a perfect system of just reading the Muáwathatayn, Aayatul Kursi and Surah Faatihah? Why is it that in this system of Sheikh bin Halima which is supposed to be according to Qur’an and Sunnah it is literally too weak? How is it that Hijaama which the Ahadeeth state is a cure for every ailment besides death is too weak to cure a ‘severe’ sihr and jinn attack? What exactly would be so severe for Allah to cure at one time that would need months and months of treatments?
Please advise with regards to this matter as many go to these frauds believing that they will be receiving help according to Qur’an and Sunnah, but in reality they are being thrown to Shaytaan and his evil agents.” (End of the Sister’s letter)
The bogus ‘raaqis’ who prey on the public achieve their nefarious goal due to the ignorance and gullibility of people who desperately seek cures for problems for which the medical establishment has no medication and solution. The bogus ‘raaqis’ dangling the chimera of the Qur’aan Majeed in front of the ignorant public succeed to entrap them into their vile tentacles.
In this day, genuine aamils who are able to diagnose and prescribe for jinn and sihr problems are extremely rare. 99% of these characters are frauds and bogus. Their only objective is money which they fleece from an ignorant public. They are bereft of any expertise in the field of exorcising evil jinn nor do they have the ability to prescribe valid remedies for sihr.
Those who suspect being affected by evil forces should adhere to the recitation of Surah Baqarah (the whole Surah), Aayatul Kursi, Surahs Ikhlaas, Falaq and Naas. They should supplicate to Allah Ta’ala for freedom from evil afflictions. But it is essential to understand that Allah’s aid is withheld from people who are flagrantly transgressing the Shariah. Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said:
“Whatever is by Allah, is attainable only by means of obedience.”
Remember that problems and hardships are generally the consequences of our misdeeds. When the Shariah is flagrantly flouted and no remorse and taubah follows, then Allah Ta’ala afflicts us with mild forms of punishment to jolt us. The Qur’aan Majeed states:
“Most certainly, We shall give them a taste of the lesser punishment, not the greater punishment. Perhaps they may return (to the rectitude and obedience).”
A person or his/her loved one is afflicted with sihr but indulgence in internet evil and television evil is not terminated, or the person does not abandon fisq and fujoor. Elimination of the problem and affliction should then not be expected.
Recently a girl was affected by what appeared to be an evil jinn. We advised the parents to adopt the following amal:
After Isha’ three or four close relatives should gather at the house. The Athaan should be proclaimed loudly in each room by the relatives. Then each one should recite the whole of Surah Baqarah. Thereafter, Surah Yaaseen should be recited 40 times. This was distributed to four relatives, each one reciting ten times. Finally each one should perform two raka’ts Nafl and implore Allah Ta’ala for aid and for the elimination of the evil affliction. This amal was practiced for a week. Alhamdulillah, the girl has been totally freed from the affliction by Allah Ta’ala.
When sihr or jinn affliction is suspected, the housefolk should gather by the person and recite the Qur’aan Majeed loudly. Usually the affected person will become extremely agitated and even issue threats, and demand the cessation of the Tilaawat. Do not heed what he/she blurts out. Continue the Tilaawat. It is painfully affecting the evil force. Steadfast Tilaawat will, Insha-Allah, eliminate the presence of the evil force.
But these bogus ‘raaqis’ only compound the evil with their own evil. While they fleece their clients and line their pockets with the ill-gotten money, the evil problem meanwhile is aggravated. Stay away from these frauds. They will drive you paranoid with their bogus amaliyaat. Do not be deceived by their treatment with only the Qur’aan. Their motivating force is the boodle. They soon become millionaires while the patients remain encumbered with the evil forces. Implore Allah Ta’ala for cure and obey Him. Nothing happens without Allah’s command and decree.
No jinn and no sihr can affect anyone without Allah’s decree. The Qur’aan Majeed explicitly says that these shaitaani forces cannot harm except if Allah Ta’ala wills. Therefore abandon transgression, adopt the Sunnah and follow the Shariah and you will be safe under Allah’s protection. Was-salaam
