The Ruqyah-Bath against Sihr

Ruqyah baths are a very effective method to weaken the effects of magic. These baths should be an important part of the treatment. One has to motivate oneself and take the trouble to take these baths, because they are definitely worth the time and effort. One should recall that healing comes from Allah, so one should ask Him to heal one through the baths, and one should do this as regularly as possible.

On YouTube, there is a video on youtube that a sister has kindly uploaded, illustrating how to do the Ruqyah bath.

There are a few different variants of the Ruqyah bath, but they are all quite similar. The ingredients can vary (see "Variation of the Ruqyah Bath" below).

One should not postpone the bath unnecessarily if one does not have a certain ingredient. The most important is anyway the recitation of the Qur'an on the water. Here, too, one should not go into extremes and let Satan induce doubts, e.g. that the pronunciation of the Arabic might not be good enough so that the Ruqyah would be ineffective. If one makes efforts, Allah will make the Rukyah work by His permission. 


•  Saffron - 3 pinches

•  Sidr (lote tree) leaves. 7 leaves, or 7 pinches if it is in powder form

•  3 table spoons of Apple cider vinegar

•  1 table spoon dead sea salt (coarse, not powdered)

•  Orange blossom water

•  Rosewater

•  1 litre of Water

Most of these ingredients can be found in 'middle eastern' or 'ethnic foods' store, or can be ordered on the internet.


On all the ingredients should be recited. One can either recite on the ingredients individually in their own bottles or one can put the ingredients in a bowl and recite on the mixture. This is better because the shorter the time between recitation and usage, the more effective it is. One should recite (in Arabic) and then blow on the mixture, but with little spit, e.g. by slightly moistening the lips:

Bismillah-hir-rahman nir rahiem. Al-hamdulillah-hir-rabbil a'lameen, ar-rahman nir-raheem, maliki yaumid-deen. Iyyaka na' budu' wa iyyaka nasta'in. Ihdinas-sirathal mustaqeem, sirathal-lasina an amta alaihim, ghairil maghduubi alaihim wa lad-dhaalleen.

In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful. Praise be to Allah, Lord of the Worlds, The Beneficent, the Merciful, Master of the Day of Judgment, Thee [alone] we worship; Thee [alone] we ask for help. Show us the straight path, the path of those whom Thou hast favoured; Not the [path] of those who earn Thine anger nor of those who go astray.

Al-Baqarah - The Cow 1-5

Alif lam miem. Salikal kitabu la ghaiba fiehi hudal-lil muttaqien. Allasina yu'minuuna bil ghaibi wa yuqiemuunash-sholata wa mimma rasaqnaahum yunfiquun. Wallasina yu'minuuna bimaa unsila ilaika wa maa unsila min qablika wa bil achirati hum yuuqinuun. Ulaaika 'ala hudam-mir-rabbihim, wa ulaaika humul muflihuun.

Alif Laam Miem. This is the Book; in it is guidance sure, without doubt, to those who fear Allah; Who believe in the Unseen, are steadfast in prayer, and spend out of what We have provided for them; And who believe in the Revelation sent to thee, and sent before thy time, and [in their earts] have the assurance of the Hereafter. They are on [true] guidance, from their Lord, and it is these who will prosper.

Al-Baqarah 102 (7-times)

Wattaba'uu maa tatlusch-shayaathienu 'ala mulki sulaimaan, wa maa kafara sulaimaanu wa laakinnash-shayaathiena kafaruu yu'allimuunan-naasas-sihra wa maa unsila 'alal malakaini bibaabila haaruuta wa maaruut, wa maa yu'allimaani min ahadin hatta yaquula innimaa nahnu fitnatun fala takfur, fayat'allamuuna minhumaa maa yufarriquunabihi bainal mari wa saujihi, wa maa hum bidhaar-rienabihi min ahadin illa bi isnillah, wa yata'allamuuna maa ya dhurruhum wa la yanfu'uhum, wa laqad 'alimuulamanish taraahu maa lahu, fil achirati min chalaaq, wa la bi'sa maa sharaubihi anfusahum, lau kaanuu ya'lahuun.

They followed what the evil ones gave out [falsely] against the power of Solomon: the blasphemers were not Solomon, but the evil ones, teaching men Magic, and such things as came down at Babylon to the angels Harut and Marut. But neither of these taught anyone [Such things] without saying: "We are only for trial; so do not blaspheme." They learned from them the means to sow discord between man and wife. But they could not thus harm anyone except by Allah's permission. And they learned what harmed them, not what profited them. And they knew that the buyers of [magic] would have no share in the happiness of the Hereafter. And vile was the price for which they did sell their souls, if they but knew!

Al-Baqarah 255 - Ayat-ul-kursi

Allahu - la ilaaha illa huwal hayyul qayyuum, la ta'chusuhu sinatuw-wa la naum, lahu maa fis-samawaati wa maa fil ardh, man salasi yashfa'u 'indahu illa bi isni, ya'lamu maa baina aidihim wa maa chalfahum, wa la yuhiethuuna bi shaim-min 'ilmihi illa bimaa shaa-a, wa si'a kursiyuhus-samawaati wal ardh, wa la ya uduhu hifsahuma, wa huwal 'aliyul 'athiem.

Allah! There is no god but He,-the Living, the Self-subsisting, Eternal. No slumber can seize Him nor sleep. His are all things in the heavens and on earth. Who is there can intercede in His presence except as He permitteth? He knoweth what [appeareth to His creatures as] before or after or behind them. Nor shall they compass aught of His knowledge except as He willeth. His Throne doth extend over the heavens and the earth, and He feeleth no fatigue in guarding and preserving them for He is the Most High, the Supreme [in glory].

Al-Baqarah 256

Laa ikraha fid-dien, qad-tabaiyanar-rushdu minal ghaiy, faman yakfur bithooghuuti wa yu'mim billahi faqadis-tamsaka bil'urwatil-wusqaa lanfishoomalaha, wAllahu sami'un 'aliem.

Let there be no compulsion in religion: Truth stands out clear from Error: whoever rejects evil and believes in Allah hath grasped the most trustworthy hand-hold that never breaks. And Allah heareth and knoweth all things.

Al-Baqarah 257

Allahu waliyyul-lasina amanu yuchrijuhum-minath-thulumaati ilan-nur, wallasina kafaruu auliyaa wuhumuth-thaaghuutu yuchriju nahum-minan-nuri ilath-thulumaat, uulaaika ash-haabun-nar, hum fieha chaliduun.

Allah is the Protector of those who have faith: from the depths of darkness He will lead them forth into light. Of those who reject faith the patrons are the evil ones: from light they will lead them forth into the depths of darkness. They will be companions of the fire, to dwell therein [For ever].

Al-Baqarah 284

Lillahi maa fis-samawaati wa maa fil ardh, wa intubduumaa fie anfusikum autuchfuuhu yuhaasibkum bihilla, fayaghfiru limaiyashaa-u wa yu'asibu maiyashaa, wAllahu ala kulli shain qadier.

To Allah belongeth all that is in the heavens and on earth. Whether ye show what is in your minds or conceal it, Allah Calleth you to account for it. He forgiveth whom He pleaseth, and punisheth whom He pleaseth, for Allah hath power over all things.

Al-Baqarah 285

Amanar-rasuulu bimaa unsila ilaihi mir-rabbihi wal mu'minuun, kullun amana billahi wa malaaikatihi wa kutubihi wa rasulihi, la nufar-riqu baina ahadim-mirrusulihi, wa qaalu sami'na wa atho'naa ghufraanaka wa ilaikal mashier.

The Messenger believeth in what hath been revealed to him from his Lord, as do the men of faith. Each one [of them] believeth in Allah, His angels, His books, and His messengers. "We make no distinction [they say] between one and another of His messengers." And they say: "We hear, and we obey: [We seek] Thy forgiveness, our Lord, and to Thee is the end of all journeys."

Al-Baqarah 286

La yukallifullahu nafsan illa wus'aha, laha maa kasabat wa 'alaihaa maktasabat, rabbana la tuaachisnaa in-nasiena au achtho'na, rabbana wa la tahmil 'alaina ishran kamaa hamaltahu 'alallasina min qoblina, rabbana wa la tuhammilna maa la thaa qatalanabihi, wa'fu'anna, waghfirlana, warhamna, anta maulaana fanshurnaa 'alal qaumil kaafirien.

On no soul doth Allah Place a burden greater than it can bear. It gets every good that it earns, and it suffers every ill that it earns. [Pray:] "Our Lord! Condemn us not if we forget or fall into error; our Lord! Lay not on us a burden Like that which Thou didst lay on those before us; Our Lord! Lay not on us a burden greater than we have strength to bear. Blot out our sins, and grant us forgiveness. Have mercy on us. Thou art our Protector; Help us against those who stand against faith."

Al-Araf - The heights 117-122

Wa au hainaa ila muusa an alqi 'ashoka fa isa hiya talqafu maa ya'fikum. Fawaqa'alhaqqu wa bathola maa kaanuu ya'maluun. Faghulibuu hunaalika wanqalabuu shoghirien. Walqiyas-saharatu saajidien. Qaaluu amanna birabbil'aalamien. Rabbi muusa wa haaruun.

We put it into Moses's mind by inspiration: "Throw [now] thy rod": and behold! it swallows up straight away all the falsehoods which they fake!. Thus truth was confirmed, and all that they did was made of no effect. So the [great ones] were vanquished there and then, and were made to look small. But the sorcerers fell down prostrate in adoration. Saying: "We believe in the Lord of the Worlds, - "The Lord of Moses and Aaron."

Yunus - Jonas 79-82

Wa qaala fira'unu'tuni bikulli saahirin 'aliem. Falamma dschaa as-saharatu qaala lahum muusa alquu maa antum mulquun. Falamma alqau qaala muusa maa dschi'tum bihis-sihru, innAllaha sayubthiluhu, innAllaha la yushlihu 'amalal mufsiduun. Wa yuhiqqullahul haqqa bikalimaatihi, wa lau karihal mudschrimuun.

Said Pharaoh: "Bring me every sorcerer well versed." When the sorcerers came, Moses said to them: "Throw ye what ye [wish] to throw!" When they had had their throw, Moses said: "What ye have brought is sorcery: Allah will surely make it of no effect: for Allah prospereth not the work of those who make mischief." And Allah by His words doth prove and establish His truth, however much the sinners may hate it!

Taha 65-69

Qaaluu yaa muusa imma an tulqiya wa imma an-nakuuna auwala man alqa. Qaala bal alquu, fa isa hibaaluhum wa 'ishiyuhum yuchaiyalu ilaihi min sihrihim annahaa tas'aa. Fa audschasa fie nafsihi chiefatam-muusa. Qulnaa la tachaf innaka antal 'ala. Wa alqi maa fie yamienika talqaf maa shana'uu, innamaa shana'uu kaidu saahirin wa la yuflihus-saahiru haisu ataa.

They said: "O Moses! whether wilt thou that thou throw [first] or that we be the first to throw?" He said, "Nay, throw ye first!" Then behold their ropes and their rods-so it seemed to him on account of their magic - began to be in lively motion! So Moses conceived in his mind a [sort of] fear. We said: "Fear not! for thou hast indeed the upper hand: "Throw that which is in thy right hand: Quickly will it swallow up that which they have faked what they have faked is but a magician's trick: and the magician thrives not, [no matter] where he goes."

Al-Ikhlas - Purity of Faith

Qul huwal-lahu ahad, al-lahus-samad, lam yalid wa lamyuulad, wa lam yakul-lahu kufu-wan ahad.

Say: He is Allah, the One and Only; Allah, the Eternal, Absolute; He begetteth not, nor is He begotten; and there is none like unto Him.

Al-Falaq - The dawn

Qul a'usu birabbil falaq, min scharri maa chalaq, wa min scharri ghaasiqin isa waqab, wa min scharrin-naffaasaati fil 'uqad, wa min scharri haasidin isa hasad.

Say: I seek refuge with the Lord of the Dawn From the mischief of created things; from the mischief of Darkness as it overspreads; from the mischief of those who practise secret arts; and from the mischief of the envious one as he practises envy.

An-Naas - Mankind

Qul 'ausubirabbin-naas, malikin-naas, ilaahin-naas, min sharril waswaasil channaas, allasi yuwaswisu fie shuduurin-naas, minal Jinnati wan-naas.

Say: I seek refuge with the Lord and Cherisher of Mankind, The King of Mankind, The god [or judge] of Mankind, from the mischief of the Whisperer [of Evil], who withdraws [after his whisper], [The same] who whispers into the hearts of Mankind, Among Jinn and among men.

Take a small amount of Apple cider vinegar and massage it into your head, enough to cover your scalp/hair.

Fill up your bath with warm water from the tap as you would if you were having a normal bath. Pour the contents of the bowl/ingredients into the bath. Sit in the bath for 30 minutes and submerge yourself as much as you can in the water.

After some time (10/20 minutes) take the bowl and pour the water over your head at least three times or as much as possible. This will wash out the cider vinegar from your hair. You should take the bath in the evening, because Jinn are more active at night, so they are then combated when they are just waking up, and one is better protected when they are active.

This is the best and most effective method. If you follow these instructions, you will feel a difference, inshaAllah.

It is important to continue with the daily safety measures, to do the obligatory prayers on time, and to read as much as possible Qur'an, especially Sura al-Baqarah. The etiquettes for sleeping should be observed to one's best ability (see appendix) and the daily Dhikr.


You may hesitate to get into the bath - this is shaytaan doing his utmost to put doubts in your mind and put you off doing the bath as, by Allah's will, it will weaken and hurt them. If you feel yourself hesitating or doubting, say ' Bismillah ' and go forth. Don't think about it, just go ahead and do it.

It is possible that you may feel like you are in pain and that the bath is causing you pain. This is actually a GOOD sign because this means your body is healing inshaAllah. One should then do his best and try to endure the pain. Even if you do not feel pain or something else, you should continue with the bath.

Do the baths for seven days in a row. Don't falter - be strong in your resolve and have confidence that Allah will help you through the recitation and the Ruqya which you have done. After seven days you should continue with the bath as often as possible but at least once every two days. The more you do it the better.

Sometimes it is necessary to support the treatment with hijamah (cupping) so that the magic can get out. You have to put the cupping head as close as possible to where the symptoms are.

Hijamah is not difficult and harmless when practiced with some care. However, it would go beyond the purpose of this book to explain the techniques more closely. Yet, it should not be difficult to learn basic knowledge over the Internet and to consult a practitioner.

Variant of the Ruqyah bath and
cleaning of the house of Jinn or Sihr

Take 20 liters of water (preferably rainwater, as there are most probably no 20 liters of Zam-Zam water available) and recite the same verses as mentioned in the previous chapter and blow / spit on the water like described. This each 11 times.

Drink two glasses of this water.

Two glasses pour into the bath water and bath or shower with it.

Two glasses of the water are poured into a small bucket of water, stirr and then fill the water into a spray bottle like one uses for flowers. Then spray the interior of the whole house, also under the furniture, in the oven, washing machine, sink, fireplace, windows and doors (also the outside), especially the door threshold of the entrance door and the marriage bed. In the bathroom, first close the toilet and then sprinkle the rest. Outside only the windows, doors and corners of the house. If you have a business, especially the warehouse where the goods are kept, and all machines.

It is important to say "Bismillah" before spraying, so that the Jinn have the opportunity to avoid the water and are not burnt by it, because it could hit believing Jinn and those who not do evil.

This is done for 11 days. If the 20 liters are finished, prepare another 20 liters.

One should not be amazed or frightened when one hears sighs, sees smoke as if something would burn, one smells burned things or sees dying animals in one's dream (rats, snakes, lizards, etc). This is a sign that the Ruqyah has worked.

In addition, candles can be recited on, preferably scented candles. Recite on them 30 times Ayat-ul-kursi, ignite them and let them burn for an hour in every room. This can also be done with wood, which is burned in the fireplace.

Waswasah - whsiperings
A number of patients complain about severe whisperings, known in Arabic as waswasah. These can take the form of voices or compulsive thoughts. These thoughts are often blasphemous and can be extremely disturbing for the patient, so disturbing even that many people question their faith...
