Ruqyah and Sabr – Shaykh Taamir Fatooh (may Allah preserve him upon good).
Question: A man’s wife is under the opinion that her husband is possessed by a Jinn. He leaves his home and doesn’t return for days. He doesn’t sleep with his wife and is constantly angry. However, he does not want to sit with a Shaykh or Raaqin (one who is proficient in Ruqyah (casting spells or exorcism, legislated by Islaam). What is a wife to do in this situation? They also have children, who are afraid of him. By Allah, what do you advise shaykh?
Answer: It is upon her to establish Sabr (Patience) and to study Ruqyah. She must learn and understand this for herself. She must learn how to apply Ruqyah upon herself. She must learn how to perform Ruqyah upon her husband, if he does not want to sit with anyone. He doesn’t want to sit with a Raaqin, nor a Shaykh. However, it is necessary that she studies Ruqyah and memorizes the Aayaat from the Qur’aan which are used for Ruqyah. Such as Aayah 102, from Suratul-Baqarah. As well as Aayatul-Kursiyy. It is upon her that she performs Ruqyah by using these 2 Aayah. As well as Mu’awwidhatayn (Suratul-Falaq and Suratun-Naas) and Suratul-Faatihah. She read these Aayaat upon her husband in abundance. She must supplicate to Allah before everything; that He removes this evil. She must establish Sabr in regards to this affair, because these affairs take time. Indeed these affairs take time. She must continue upon this affair through its duration, in sickness and in health in regards to these affairs.
It is necessary that whoever performs the Ruqyah and whoever marries must establish Sabr in regards to these affairs. Do not cease, in Ruqyah nor in Du’aa’. And with all of these statements, I ask Allah for His forgiveness and I repent to Him
