Charging for ruqya

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: I need help as I have been affected by sihr. Alhamdulillah Allah has helped me through some very difficult times in my life. I heard about ruqya and when I searched and found a group of people in SA who does this but they charge money. Is this genuine and are you allowed to charge money? I am very weary of most people as I believe that they use Jinn to trick people into believing their “healing” powers and it is also detrimental to ones Imaan.


A: We are not aware of these people, whether they are competent enough to do this practice or not.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
