An Insight into The Realm of Jinns and Magic – Shaykh ‘Abdul’Azeez al-Bura’ee – Must listen!
2. To possess the human being.
In this case, Allaah has legislated for us ruqya according to the Shari’ah. It is upon us to say the legislated dhikr from what is known and by the Permission of Allaah, we will be protected and not have to suffer from being touched by the shaytaan. If Allaah destined for you that you be touched by the shaytaan then you must strive hard in reciting as much of the Qur’aan as you can, increase in du’a to Allaah, make istighfar, and it is a must upon you to say ‘SubhanAllaah, Alhamdulillaah, Allaahu Akbar, Laa ilaaha ill Allaah’ as much as you can.
3. To affect the human being by way of sihr (magic).
The only way to treat yourself from magic is with the treatment of ruqya as found in the Shari’ah and the supplications that have been legislated from the Qur’aan and Sunnah. It is NOT PERMISSIBLE to go back to a magician in order to get rid of the magic that has been done to you. We must return to Allaah and never ever to a magician even if some people have said it is permissible to do so. Even if you were to die while still suffering from the sickness of possession or sihr then it is for you to die upon Tawheed while you are still ill rather than to die upon shirk or kufr.
If you are not able to make ruqya upon yourself there is no harm if you take ruqya from one who is from the saaliheen whether that person made ruqya upon you directly or recited upon some water or some food for you to eat or drink.
The Shaykh then went on to comment on some of the benefits of performing ruqya for another Muslim and mentioned that this act of performing ruqya for another person not only benefits the one who is being treated but also the one performing the ruqya.
Another point of grave importance as discussed by the Shaykh is the matter of those individuals who perform ruqya as a means to expand their wealth and earn a living. He spoke about some of the heinous practices of these individuals and clarified the authentic position according to the Qur’aan and pure Sunnah. He further said that what these individuals commit is extortion and is a defamation of the ruqya legislated in the Shari’ah.
