Prohibited Ruqya?

Bukhari :: Book 7 :: Volume 71 :: Hadith 606

Narrated Ibn 'Abbas:
Allah's Apostle said, 'Nations were displayed before me; one or two prophets would pass by along with a few followers. A prophet would pass by accompanied by nobody. Then a big crowd of people passed in front of me and I asked, Who are they Are they my followers?" It was said, 'No. It is Moses and his followers It was said to me, 'Look at the horizon.'' Behold! There was a multitude of people filling the horizon. Then it was said to me, 'Look there and there about the stretching sky! Behold! There was a multitude filling the horizon,' It was said to me, 'This is your nation out of whom seventy thousand shall enter Paradise without reckoning.' "Then the Prophet entered his house without telling his companions who they (the 70,000) were. So the people started talking about the issue and said, "It is we who have believed in Allah and followed His Apostle; therefore those people are either ourselves or our children who are born m the Islamic era, for we were born in the Pre-lslamic Period of Ignorance.'' When the Prophet heard of that, he came out and said. "Those people are those who do not treat themselves with Ruqya, nor do they believe in bad or good omen (from birds etc.) nor do they get themselves branded (Cauterized). but they put their trust (only) in their Lord " On that 'Ukasha bin Muhsin said. "Am I one of them, O Allah's Apostle?' The Prophet said, "Yes." Then another person got up and said, "Am I one of them?" The Prophet said, 'Ukasha has anticipated you."

Which ruqya is prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him) is talking about>?

Re: Prohibited Ruqya?

there is some difference amongst the scholars about his part of the hadith, "Those people are those who do not treat themselves with Ruqya" because it is inconsitant/ irregular (shaadh) hence unauthentic.

This was mentioned by Ibn Taymiyya (rh). Beacuse performing ruqya is a good deed and Allah would not delay or remove someone from Paradise beacause of it.

While others like Ibn Hajr (rh) said it is authentic.

There can be two meanings to this-

1. Seeking ruqya is disliked in islam (meaning keep asking for ruqya from someone- especially when you dont need it). So is relying upon the one performing the ruqya, when one should rely more on Allah, or being attached to the raqi, or thinking the raqi can heal you.

Ruqya is only the means- the healing and cure is from Allah.

2. Ruqya means incantation and can either be good or bad. Good and permissilbe is what using the Quran and duas from sunnah, bad or haram is ruqya that include shirk.

So the messenger of Allah (pbuh) maybe refering to that.

Allah Knows Best
