Often, our body becomes a host of particular disease, which may not be posing any substantial stress or damage evidently. However, treating it is also more important consideration which should not be left aside if there is no harm seen.
Ideally, if the disease is not physical, it could be Emotional, Social, Spiritual, or Mental Health related. Hence, as per the religious teachings, the effected must try to approach their problem, with treatment with Ruqya For Illness, first.
The Ruqya is accumulation of several verses from Quran and authentic Ahadeeth that are recommended and mentioned in Shariah for healing and problem solving.
Otherwise, any problem can be fixed with countless bounties of Almighty that present themselves in face of Honey, Black Seed, Olive Oil, Fig etc. While all these foods and herbs has remedial and health benefits in their particular ways.
However, medicine is a very vast field, and there are many alternate ways to treat any disease. Meanwhile, it is also proven treatments done by chemicals may not be as effective as treated by herbs and food.
If a person is suffering from hopelessness, depression and anxiety; they must firstly consider firming their belief in Almighty and His plans. Secondly, they should indulge more and prayer, supplication, Ruqya For Depression, and fasting.
Indeed supplication and fasting heals the soul, hence may pose very healing effect on an individual. Without any medication, if anything is treated, then why harm body with countless chemicals that may address the problem but would have side effects too.
If a person has to visit a psychologist, it is best to visit a doctor which beliefs in Almighty or spirituality, hence they will be treating them in the right manner. Furthermore, the doctor will also be helping his patient with right path appropriate for Muslims.
Allah (SWT) says: “Whosoever works righteousness, whether male or female, while he is a true believer, verily to him We will give a good life and We shall certainly pay them a reward in proportion to the best of what they used to do (i.e. Paradise).”
It was narrated that Suhayb (RAA) said: The Messenger of Allah ﷺ said: “How wonderful is the affair of the believer; for all of his affairs are good; and this applies to no one except the believer. If something good happens to him, he gives thanks and that is good for him; and if something bad happens to him, he bears it with patience and that is good for him.”
(Muslim – 2999)
One can also say “Laa ilaaha illa Anta, Subhaanaka inni kuntu min adh-dhaalimeen (none has the right to be worshipped but You, Glorified and Exalted be You above all the evil they associate with You! Truly, I have been of the wrongdoers)”
Whoever wants to know more than that should refer to what the scholars have written about dhikr, such as al-Waabil al-Sayyib by ibn Al-Qayyim, Al-Kalim at-Tayyib by Shaykh Al-Islam ibn Taymiyyah, al-Adhkaar by An-Nawawi, Zaad al-Ma’aad by ibn al-Qayyim.
However nowadays, due to lack of faith, people are less receptive to the remedies prescribed in Shariah than in chemicals. You find nowadays people are relying on physical medicines more than the Organic Remedies for Illness, prescribed in Shariah.
Nevertheless, when a person’s faith is firm, the Remedies by Shariah are completely effective and may work faster and better than physical medicine.
We all know about the story of the man whom the Prophet ﷺ sent on a campaign and he camped near some Arab people. But the people near whom he camped showed him no hospitality at all.
Allah (SWT) willed that their leader should be stung by a scorpion and they said to one another, “Go to those people who have camped nearby, perhaps you will find a Raaqi (one who can recite Ruqya) with them.”
A“We will not recite Ruqya for your leader unless you give us such and such a number of sheep.” They said, “Fine.” So one of the Sahaabah went and recited Ruqya for the one who had been stung.
He only recited Surat al-Faatihah throughout and the one who had been stung got up as if released from a chain.
Reciting al-Faatihah had such an effect on this man because it came from a heart that was filled with faith. The Prophet ﷺ asked him, “How did you come to know that it (i.e Surat al-Faatihah) could be recited as a Ruqya?”
Sadly, nowadays, religious commitment and faith have become weak and people rather rely on external physical medicines, and as a result they are in suffering.
But on the other hand there are charlatans who play with people’s minds; they are clever and able to trick people, claiming that they are good reciter of Ruqya when in fact they are consuming people’s wealth unlawfully.
Therefore it’s vital you avoid these two extremes; one extreme is those who think that Ruqya has no effect at all and the other is those tricksters who play with people’s minds by reciting false and deceitful readings. [Fataawa Islamiyyah, 4/465, 466]
Lastly we ask Allah (SWT) to guide us and protect us from all types of anxiety and qualms, moreover, to open our hearts to faith, guidance and tranquillity, and Heal with Ruqya.
