Becoming a Female Ruqya Therapist: My Journey to Helping Others

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: After completing my Alimah studies in’sha’Allah, I really want to become a Ruqya therapist. I have been afflicted with sihr myself, but Alhamdulillah with the grace of Allah Ta’ala, I got cured by a trusted raqi.

I really want to become a raqi. I feel that there’s not enough female raqis and I’ve been interested in becoming a raqi ever since I visited a Ruqya clinic, and carefully watched the raqi perform Ruqya. I thought to myself it’s such a rewarding job, and you get to help so many Muslims who are suffering. I also feel there’s lots of muslimahs who need help and cure and if there’s a female raqi it’ll be so much easier for them in terms of not feeling uncomfortable going to see a male.

If you could let me know what I need to do in order to become a raqi? Do I do a online course or study Ruqya course at an institute?


A: We have not practised this and we do not have information on this.

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