Ruqyah treatment

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: How often should one do ruqyah if one is suffering from ocd (more accurately waswas al-qahri)? If one is in the process of ruqyah and accidently utters an english word, is the ruqya nullified? How about an arabic word? Also, is it permissible to do one ruqya session for multiple illnesses (for same person)? Will this take away from the effectiveness?


A: These are all treatments. Permissible treatments are permissible. The one that you are taking treatment from should be consulted. It is not a matter of fatwa and fiqh.

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