Sand of Cure from Madinah

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Askmufti.co.za

Q: What is the status of the shifa (cure) sand from Madinah Munawarah?

A: Your query refers. The shifaa sand is derived from a special garden in Madinah which contains the date palms planted by Rasoolullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam). For centuries people used the sand of that garden for purposes of shifaa or cure. To do so is permissible, but one should not go above the limit and start giving that sand extra-ordinary significance

And Allah Ta’ala knows best
