A Remedy for Illnesses,Evil Eye, Magic and Jinn from the Qur’ān and Sunnah
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

THE RUQYAH RACKET –
THE CREATORS OF PARANOIA
WE REPRODUCE TWO LETTERS FROM THE MANY CONCERNED BROTHERS AND SISTERS WHO HAVE WRITTEN TO US ON THE RUQYAH GROUP CURRENTLY SELLING ITS ‘RUQYAH’ WARES IN SOUTH AFRICA.
What is the status in the Shariah of Ruqyah as is being practised by a group who present themselves as experts in this science?
Can you please as a matter of urgency advise with regards to the Ruqya treatment that has taken the Cape and now KZN with a storm. Programs are held at Masaajid, etc., where they advise regarding treatment with Quranic Aayaat for removing of Jinn from people. Sometimes demonstrations are done in the Masjid.
To top it all programmes are held in the Masjid encouraging people to come for their treatment which comes with a cost. In our town the Imams have not allowed the programme at the Jamia Masjid. However Ml Hashim Gori has invited them, being a Mutawallee of Masjid-un-Noor. He is inclined to this Ruqyah venture, hence allowing them there.
If it is not compliant please advise the Ummah as a priority.
Please advise on what is acceptable according to Shariah regarding Ruqyah? Ruqyah SA is hosting Sheikh Abder Rahman Ben Halima who is said to be a renowned ruqyah specialist.
He recently gave a talk and he emphasised that raqyah is only taken from Quraan and Sunnah. Having little to no knowledge about this subject, besides the Masnoon wazaaif like Aayatul Kursi, 3 Quls, etc, I am unsure as to what is Haqq and what is not.
Of the things he mentioned, he spoke about the ‘phenomenon’ of reversing jinn catching. I’m not sure I understood exactly what he was explaining.
His wife is the ‘bait’ that catches the Jinnaat. Then wazeefahs are read after which the jinn can take Shahaadah or die.
If possible, can Molana please outline what is the Shar’i limits of ruqyah.
While Ruqyah (Ta’weez, etc.) is permissible, the group of so-called ruqyah ‘specialists” is a baatil group which should not be touched with a bargepole. These ruqyah characters are liable to drive you into paranoia with their jinn and ‘gin’ talk. It is indeed lamentable that these chaps are allowed to misuse the Musaajid for marketing their baseless ‘ruqyah’ wares.
Their objective is purely monetary gain. Their ruqyah business is HARAAM. They are selling and misusing the Qur’aan Majeed for the miserable, cheap gain of the dunya. They are bartering away their Deen for the dunya.
Their jinn-catching stunts, even if assumed to be true, are HARAAM. While there are amaliyaat for subjugating, enslaving and controlling jinn, these are HARAAM. Jinn, like Insaan (the human being) is azaad (free). Jinn are not animals which may be trapped, eaten, encaged, etc. They are intelligent, free beings. They are Muslims and kuffaar. Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) had gone to the abode of the Jinn specially to present Islam to them. Innumerable Jinn are Muslims, and there are still Sahaabah Jinn alive today.
It is HARAAM to subjugate a Jinn and to utilize him for any purpose whatsoever, even for reciting the Qur’aan Majeed. The act of using his wife as bait by the ruqyah character, is despicably HARAAM. This man has no shame. If he does have the ability to subjugate Jinn, then know that his baiting act with his wife as the ‘prawn’ of the hook, is immoral and HARAAM. It is tantamount to zina. If he genuinely is able to catch a jinn, then it is HARAAM to compel the kaafir jinn to recite the Kalimah. The Qur’aan Majeed states: “There is no compulsion in Deen.”
Indeed this ruqyah character is ignorant. He fails to understand, that a non-Muslim declaring the Shahaadat with the gun at his head, is not a true Muslim. If the Jinn is given the choice of Islam or death, and he submits to the former, he remains a kaafir because his Shahaadat is not by a voluntary expression of Imaan.
In our book, SIHR, we have explained the Shariah limits for the permissibility of Ruqyah. The book is available from us.
It is essential for Muslims to remain far from this money-coining clique. Just imagine! They charge R400 or more for a charade diagnosis and some laughable ‘ruqyah’ artefacts consisting of a small bottle of olive oil, senna leaves and some salt. The parcel is worth about R20. This is their standard medicine for all cases of imagined magic and jinn-afflictions.
Whether a person suffers from a headache or has marital problems, financial problems, haraam-love problems, etc., etc., it is always the effect of magic according to these chaps. Muslims are required to employ their brains and to seek the Shariahs’s ruling from the Ulama-e-Haqq because plunging headlong in a venture or in a morass of weird stunts is Imaani destruction.
Sure signs of the bogus nature of such people who claim to operate mysteriously are: (1) They enlist the aid of jinn, and (2) The boodle. They are out to become millionaires overnight.
They attend to thousands of people all over the world 12 months of the year. The boodle flows into their coffers like water because people are just too stupid due to Imaani deficiencies, hence they are ensnared into baatil with the greatest ease by such stunters.
It is necessary for the safety and well-being of Muslims that the Ulama proffer guidance to the morons in our community who allow themselves to be sucked for money. Do not be fooled by their employment of the Qur’aan Majeed. This is merely to impress the gullible community. Remember, that even kuffaar Jinn will be reciting the Qur’aan to mislead and misguide Muslims. Some of these ruqyah people perform weird shaitaani stunts with wazeefahs of Durood Shareef and Qur’aanic aayaat. In their weird and bizarre stunts, they acquire shaitaani assistance. May Allah Ta’ala save us all from their shaitaani depredations.
Adopt and adhere to the masnoon recitations of Ruqyah, and have yaqeen. Make Dua. But remember that Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said:
“Whatever is by Allah is attainable by means of only obedience.”
Therefore, morally reform yourself and seek Allah’s aid. Be patient in trials. All trials are almost always the consequences of our sins. Increase Istighfaar and Thikrullaah. This is the best Ruqyah.
