Mufti Ebrahim Desai
Q: What are your views on the book, ‘Remedies from the Holy Qur’aan’, by
Moulana Ashraf Ali Thanwi? It contains many remedies from the Qur’aan.
A: The Qur’aan is a cure for mankind. On grounds of experience, Ulama have
recommended certain verses of the Qur’aan for certain ailments. Many of
these remedies have been tried and tested successfully over the years. If
any of these Qur’aanic remedies fail to work, it does not mean that the
remedy is deficient. The degree of sincerity and confidence of the person
employing the remedy plays a major role in the success of the remedy.
Sometimes, it wouldn’t work because Allah Ta’ala has decreed otherwise.
