The Islamic ruling for Amaliyyat and Wazaif can be summarised in two short lines:
There is nothing fundamentally wrong with this suggestion ALTHOUGH I would personally rather make Dua and adhere to Sunnah but someone in their experience has found this to be efficacious.
There are hundreds of therapies which practitioners use around the world for patients which are experimental (and not 100% successful). The entire drug testing is based on the assumption that this may not be 100% successful. You cannot test a therapy and take a straw poll “How many found this to be helpful?” It is based on experience and personal leanings of the practitioner. I have worked with plenty of Doctors who swear by a particular treatment while other Doctors dismiss it.
In this case, it has the added complexity of being from the spiritual world which most individuals have no grasp of and there is no test to prove (or disprove). Kashf is a reality and for someone who has it, it is simple and straightforward while for others it is mysterious, spooky, Jinn (Black Magic). You cannot explain Kashf to someone who has not experienced it at the same time you cannot dismiss Kashf from someone who is otherwise a Sunnah practising sane Muslim to be under the influence of Jinn/Black Magic etc.
Karaamat are also from Allah and once again it is hard to explain to someone who has never experienced it. Once again, you cannot dismiss a sane Sunnah practising Muslim who displays a Karamat to be under the influence of Jinn/Black Magic etc.
The problem in these cases is that those who have no experience in these matters seeking explanations and others offering it which are from “physical world”. You are absolutely right that the example of physician giving medicine makes no sense in this case because the premise is wrong!
This is from the non-physical realm so how can you provide an example from the physical realm to explain it any and all examples will fall short. The Jinn and Shaytaanic world is not exclusive to Islam and Muslims. It affects others and some of the methods to deal with these matters are common. For example, make a patient who is affected by Jinn smell pungent strong odour and they will react, you can test this on Muslim, Hindu, Christian and 100% of the time verify this reaction. Hindus/Sikhs regularly recommend incense, Christians recommend burning oil, Muslims recommend “Oud or Bakhoor” and Hollywood recommends “Garlic”. The point I am making is that there must be a link in the demonic world between demons and string smells so just because you google and find links on various (Non-Muslim) sites doesn’t mean jack-diddly-squat!
There are many similarities between “spirituality” and energy systems of Hindus, Buddhists and Muslim Sufees because I guess there msut eb certain universal truths about spirituality which have been discovered by trial and error. You cannot dismiss the entire Naqshbandi-Mujaddidi Tareqqa just because google throws up similarities between it and Budhist meditation and exactly which points to concentrate upon.
This cannot be undone and I am sure it will be greatly appreciated.
