Repeating Specific Qur’anic Verses for a Specific Number of Times During the Ruqya

 

Question:

Some Raqis select specific Qur‘anic verses and recite for a specific number of times to treat certain diseases. However, the Raqis do not believe that the specific number of times is the cause of healing. What is the ruling on such specification?

 

 

Answer:

 

 
Undoubtedly, the Qur‘an has a healing effect as stated by Allah in these verses:  Say: It (the Qur‘an) is for those who believe [in it] a guidance and a healing. [Surah Fussilat, Ayah 44]

 

O mankind! There hath come unto you an exhortation from your Lord, a balm for that which is in the breasts, a guidance and a mercy for believers

[Yunus Sura, Ayah 57]

 

And We reveal of the Qur‘an that which is a healing and a mercy for believers [Al-Israa Sura, Ayah 82]

 
These quotations refer to the healing effect of the Qur‘anic verses in general. However, some verses have a particularly curative effect, such as: Al-Fatiha, Al-Kursi Ayah, Al-Flaq Sura, Annas Sura, Al-Ikhlas Sura and the last two Ayahs of Al-Baqara Sura.

 

Regarding Al-Fatiha, the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم is reported to have said to the man who recited it as a Ruqya, ―How did you know it is a Ruqya?

[Sahih Al-Bukhari, Kitab Attib (Book of Medicine), Hadith No. 5736. & Sahih Muslim, Kitab Assalam (Book of Peace), hadith no. 2201.]

 

Also, regarding Al-Falaq and Annas sought refuge through anything like those Suras.

[Sunnan annasa‘I, Kitab Al-Isti‘atha (Book of Seeking Refuge), 5865]

 

 

With regard to repeating such Ayahs or Suras, it is recitation that matters, be it done once, or more. Nonetheless, the more the recitation and the more repeatedly it is done, the more effective the Ruqya should be.
