Doing Ruqyia with Words of Remembrance or Words that don`t Contradict Shariah is Acceptable

Someone mentioned that since the Prophet (Peace and blessings be upon him) said: (Submit your Ruqyia to me) , not (Receive from me this Ruqyia), this means that Ruqyia is Ijtihadi (Discretional) and that each person has their way in diagnosis and treatment. I have read about Ibn Qhodama`s view regarding Ruqyia in his book {Al-Moghni}. I arrived at the conclusion that Ruqyia isn`t Tawqifi (Not subject to debate and argument, because it has been decided, specified and enacted by the lawmaker) and that it depends on trials, similar to medical sciences. What is the ruling of Sharia on this?

Combining two Seemingly Contradictory Hadiths on Lineage

What is the basis on which the two following seemingly contradictory Hadiths were combined: First, "The boy is for (the owner of) the bed and the stone is for the person who commits illegal sexual intercourse."{Related by Bukhari & Muslim}. Second, " Any woman who brings to her family one who does not belong to it has nothing to do with Allah (i.e. expects no mercy from Allah), and Allah will not bring her into His Paradise."{Related by Abu Dawud}.

Ruling on Castrating Cats to Prevent Inevitable Mischief

I would like to ask about the procedure followed in sterilizing and castrating cats. Actually, it is harmless and takes no more than ten minutes. As this is the breeding season, cats become ferocious and splash urine all over the house, causing a lot of harm. Moreover, raising cats is expensive and I can`t afford raising more than one. If I leave them as they are, they will increase in great numbers. What is the ruling on this procedure?
