There is hardly a better opportunity for observing the power of the Qur'an than during Ruqyah. With the recitation of the Qur'an alone, devils can be expelled and even killed. What might sound like a fairytale for the average Westerner is a recognized practice in Islam.
But even many Muslims do not know how many diseases and ailments are caused by Jinn! It is generally assumed that obsession is manifested by schizophrenic conditions, as in the form of a severe mental illness. These are, however, only the extreme forms and the tip of the iceberg. In fact, most people are bothered by Jinn without noticing it. If the Jinn remain in the body for a longer period, they cause most often diseases, both physical and mental.
With such diseases Western medicine is usually hopelessly overburdened. Especially in cases of "mental diseases" Western medicine can often do nothing more than immobilize the patient with severe psycho-pharmaceuticals such as Haldol. If one gets such a treatment, one has a bad chance of ever becoming "normal" again because of the serious side effects. Even in cases of diseases such as eczema and psoriasis, western medicine is generally quite helpless because it often does not recognize the true causes. Not to mention blockades in life, which are not even recognized as a medical problem!
As obvious as the symptoms are for those who know and are able to classify them, western medicine is blind to them as they dismiss Jinn as a child tale. When we read such headlines as the following, the one who is familiar with Jinn understands the causes immediately, while western medicine is left in the dark:
Düsseldorf - Sept. 5, 2017. According to a psychiatrist, the alleged amok runner at Düsseldorf's central station was acting on the orders of inner voices. They had ordered the indiscriminate attacks on travelers to provoke his killing by the police. This was reported to him by the mentally ill man in his assessment, the expert said on Tuesday at process launch.
The man will come into a secluded psychiatry, packed with psychopharmaceuticals, and will not become "normal" ever again.
Because there are not many Muslims in the West, and unfortunately, not many of them know about Ruqyah, experienced healers often live far away. At the same time, however, Muslims in the West live in a non-Islamic environment that favours devils. It is therefore not surprising that there are many people who have problems and are left alone with these problems.
This book is intended to assist in both diagnosis and treatment, as well as to explain things that are generally important, e.g. daily sunnahs for protection. Treatment methods are presented which do not require any Raqi (someone who practices Ruqyah), but which everybody can practice by himself with God's permission. This book will also be a useful reference to the novice Raqi. And, of course, dealing with the subject of Ruqyah has many positive aspects that should result in a better understanding and practice of Islam.
It is very important to understand that if someone has a problem with Jinn, it can not be easily solved with just a Ruqyah session, as if one is going to the doctor who prescribes a few pills. When such a problem occurs, it is a call from Allah to examine one's whole life and to re-structure it in many areas, since the expelling of the Jinn with Ruqyah is usually only a small part of the entire healing process. The patient must find out the true causes that have led to the problem and change his life in order that he is protected in the future and the Jinn will not return again soon after the treatment. This is generally a longer process that requires effort from the patient.
Who is not willing to undertake this effort and, e.g. thinks that one could be healed without performing one's mandatory prayers on time, is wrong. He most probably will end up with a so-called healer, who takes large sums for a Ruqyah session, but after some initial success everything will be as before. Or even with a sorcerer, who himself is working with Jinn, which in the end makes everything worse! On the contrary, the one who trusts in Allah and obeys Him, follows the advice of the Prophet s.a.w. and does his part, will have success.
No disaster occurs without the permission of Allah, including magic or the infestation with Jinn:
And from these two [angels] people learn that by which they cause division between man and wife; but they injure thereby no-one save by Allah's leave. [Al-Baqarah 102]
Every problem we have in life is a chance to improve, to make us stronger, to rely more on God and to fear Him more and to act better according to the Sunnah of the Prophet s.a.w. Who understands that Allah never imposes a problem that can not be solved (unless it is already the beginning of a final punishment, may Allah protect us) will inshaAllah have patience because he realizes that Allah has given him exactly this problem so that he can make progress and is led again to the right path.
Or think ye that ye will enter paradise while yet there hath not come unto you the like of [that which came to] those who passed away before you? Affliction and adversity befell them, they were shaken as with earthquake, till the messenger [of Allah] and those who believed along with him said: When cometh Allah's help? Now surely Allah's help is nigh. [Al-Baqarah 214]
Every school kid knows that without examinations one can not get into a higher class and that one does not know one's position and where one still has shortages to correct.
Al-Bukhaari (6472) and Muslim (220) narrated from Ibn 'Abbaas (may Allah be pleased with him) that the Messenger of Allah (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) said: "Seventy thousand of my ummah will enter Paradise without being brought to account; they are the ones who did not ask for Ruqyah or believe in omens or use cautery and they put their trust in their Lord."
These people will enter Paradise without being brought to account because of the perfection of their Tawheed, their complete trust in Allah and their independence from people. The one who asks for Ruqyah from others is not included in that seventy thousand who will enter Paradise without being brought to account, due to the shortfall in their trust in Allah, because asking for Ruqyah involves a kind of humiliation and need of the Raqi.
Muslim narrated (1043) that 'Awf ibn Maalik al-Ashja'i (may Allah be pleased with him) said: We were with the Messenger of Allah (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him), nine or eight or seven (people) and he said: "Will you not swear allegiance to the Messenger of Allah (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him)?" We had only recently sworn our allegiance, so we said: We have sworn our allegiance to you, O Messenger of Allah. He said: "Will you not swear allegiance to the Messenger of Allah (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him)?' We said: We have already sworn our allegiance to you, O Messenger of Allah. Then he said: "Will you not swear allegiance to the Messenger of Allah (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him)?" We held out our hands and said: We swear our allegiance to you, O Messenger of Allah. Tell us on what basis we should swear allegiance to you? He said: "On the basis that you will worship Allah and not associate anything with Him, and (you will perform) the five daily prayers, and you will obey Allah - and he whispered - and you will not ask the people for anything." I saw that some of those people, if they dropped a whip, they would not ask anyone to hand it to them.
The perfection of the Tawheed is, among other things, not asking other people for anything, and it is precisely this perfection of Tawheed that is the best protection against Satan! A healer can only heal with the permission of Allah, and without the help of the patient it is difficult, if not impossible, because the patient has to evade the Jinn everything the Jinn likes, such as sin and un-Islamic practices, and practice what Jinn do not like, Islam as eagerly as possible. That is why it makes no sense to search desperately for a healer, but one should immediately take action oneself, even before there is a problem. One should adhere to the commandments and prohibitions of Allah and follow the Sunnah of the Prophet s.a.w., especially those Sunnahs which protect from the devils, and in case of possible infestations, carry out the procedures described in this book. If one is not able to do it by onself, one should keep in mind the listed criteria for a healer.
The book is intended to provide a first orientation to the novice Raqi and to serve as a reference, but hopefully the novice will have the opportunity to learn with an experienced Raqi.
Some people ask whether the techniques and treatment methods presented in this book were practiced by the Prophet s.a.w. or the Salaf, may Allah reward them for their taqwa! The answer is neither yes nor no. Basically, only methods based on Qur'an and Sunnah are presented, first of all the certainty that all healing is caused by Allah alone, and that the Qur'an was sent down as a cure for the faithful but as a punishment for the criminals. Certain techniques are reported from the Prophet s.a.w., and based thereupon have God-fearing Raqis developed other techniques. Therefore one should perceive Ruqyah less as "Islam" but more as "Islamic medicine".
Companions asked the Prophet s.a.w. whether they should continue to practice Ruqyah, as they did in the pre-Islamic period, on which the Prophet s.a.w. replied: "Show me your methods. There is no harm in Ruqyah as long as it does not contain shirk (polytheism)." [Muslim]
The belief in the existence of Jinn is an integral part of Islam since the Qur'an speaks about the existence of man and Jinn. There is even a Sura called 'Al-Jinn'...
