What I am trying to say that is the assessment of a patient and the conclusion that the patient is afflicted is a subjective matter. In majority of cases the diagnosis I see is ften based on:
I can assure everybody reading this that there is NO CERTAINTY in these matters at all. I have seen with my own eyes an individual presenting himself in front of a (known pious) Shaykh getting a diagnosis, getting in a car and going to a second (known pious) Shaykh only to be contradicted and get a second diagnosis.
This is the NUMBER ONE issue which people need to understand. A SINGLE TRAIT which I have found in almost all of the Brothers who are effective in treating (others) is that they are very particular and detailed in taking case histories.
Laymen who visit those who are ineffective get frustrated and question as to why this Shaykh is taking so long to explore my case history? And you can clearly see their agitation.
Laymen think that the Raqi should start blowing on them or treating them straight away.
Anyone who doesn’t take the time to get to know you or analyse your history should be treated with some suspicion. I am not saying that people who get Kashf don’t exist but if then understand that your diagnosis is based on Kashf and not through and detailed case history.
This cannot be undone and I am sure it will be greatly appreciated.
