Ruqya in Islam - a brief outline.
Ruqya is the practice of reciting Qur’ānic verses and supplications for the sake of seeking a cure. Allāh in reality is the One who provides the cure for all illnesses. There is no beneit except through Him. But in the same manner Allāh Almighty can provide relief via (i) a doctor (ii) certain foods and medicine, He can also provide the cure via the means of religious words.
It is abundantly clear that performing ruqya is proven from the sacred texts, whether it is done (i) via the means of a relic (ii) via blowing after recitation (iii) via an amulet (ta’wīz) that contains religious words.
