An original Deoband.org article

Muhammad ibn 'Umar al-Makki narrated to us: 'Abd al-'Aziz al-Darawardi narrated to us: from Yazid (who is Ibn 'Abdullah ibn Usamah ibn al-Had): from Muhammad ibn Ibrahim: from Abu Salamah ibn 'Abd al-Rahman: from 'A'ishah, the wife of the Prophet (Allah bless him and grant him peace), that she said:

"When the Messenger of Allah (Allah bless him and grant him peace) would complain of an illness Jibril would perform a ruqyah. He would say: 'In Allah's name, He will heal you, and from every sickness He will cure you, and from the evil of the envier when he envies, and the evil of every holder of the eye.'" (Sahih Muslim)

His statement "Jibril would perform a ruqyah": this contains [evidence] of the permissibility of ruqyah.

Al-Hafiz said in al-Fath (10:195): "The 'ulama are agreed on the permissibility of ruqyahs when three conditions are met: that it is [done] using Allah's speech or using His names and attributes; it is in the Arabic language, or in a manner that its meaning is understood if another language [is used]; and to believe that the ruqyah itself does not have efficacy, rather [its efficacy] is through Allah's Essence (Most High)."

It is probable he meant by the first condition that it does not contain istimdad (seeking help) from other than Allah, for otherwise it appears that the mention of Allah's name should not be a condition. The hadith of 'Awf ibn Malik is to come from the compiler [Imam Muslim] in which he said: "We used to perform ruqyahs in Jahiliyyah (pre-Islamic times), so we said 'O Messenger of Allah! What do you think of this?' And he said: 'Present your ruqyahs to me. There is no harm in ruqyahs so long as they do not contain any shirk (polytheism)." And this is the basic principle in this matter.

As regards to the hadiths in which the prohibition of ruqyahs is mentioned, or the hadiths in which those who do not seek ruqyahs are praised, they are understood to refer to the ruqyahs of the disbelievers which contain words of shirk or istimdad with other than Allah Most High, or ruqyahs whose meanings are not understood, since these are not safe from containing shirk and are thus prohibited as a precaution. And Allah (Glorified is He) knows best.

Ruqya means reciting specific verses over a person who is ill, praying for them in the hopes that Allah سبحانه وتعالى will heal them. Aisha RA narrated "When any person amongst us fell ill, Allah's Messenger (saw) used to rub him with his right hand and then say:

"O Lord of the people, grant him health, heal him, for Thou art a Greet Healer. There is no healer, but with Thy healing Power one is healed and illness is removed."
(Al-Bukhari)

Sheikh Muhammad Luhaidan recorded this especially to help all those who have been afflicted by Sihr (black magic). May Allah guide him and grant him Jannah. May Allah SWT accelerate the cure to those that are suffering, as only He can provide the cure.

Salam

A bit background info as to what is Ruqya, what it can be used for, etc, in my humble opinion akhii would be useful to others who don't know, otherwise they'll just assume its a random recitation.

Just a mashwera akhii

Definitely.

In fact, that was meant to be the opening post but as I was doing the videos, I posted it without the description and got distracted away.

InshaAllah, I will add something to the opening posts later on.

The first video has a massive description on the actual YouTube page, but I wanted to use something more authentic.

Jazakallah.

Manzil is the same and there is no such thing as old and new.
