Ruqyah, in its most basic form, is the Islamic act of controlled expulsion of spirits or negative energies via incantations of verses from the Qur’an, parts from ad’iyah (supplication) of the Prophet (May Allah’s Peace and Blessings be upon Him) and general supplications of healing and support of God. The verses of the Qur’an and the supplications are the main elements of ruqyah, which have proven effective in dealing with spiritual issues.
Before delving into the issue of the Islamic ruqyah, one should acknowledge that Islam commands us to seek plausible explanations and scientific ways of medication when one is ill or mentally afflicted. Only when these avenues have been exhausted and proven to be ineffective can one explore applying the practise of ruqyah as a process of healing.
Islam maintains that the blessing of health is a divine grant from God that should be preserved and looked after, and it is incumbent upon us to ensure we remain in the best of spirits and health always, for ourselves, and for us to contribute positively to the people around us.
