Q: What is ruqya and what is the correct method? What is the Shar’ee ruling regarding ruqya? Please advise.
A: It is a form of treatment. If permissible words are used with the right intentions then it is permissible. There are a lot of words of ruqyah that are contained in the Qur’aan and hadeeth.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
