WHO EVER IS ABLE TO HELP HIS BROTHER LET HIM DO SO
🎓The Messenger of Allāh (may the peace and blessings of Allāh be upon him) advised people to perform ruqyah on others, regardless of whether or not they ask, such as the hadeeth in which he said, “Whoever is able to help your brother let him do so” and many other hadeeth of ruqyah,
🔺The meaning of the description of these people is that they are those people who have that complete trust in Allāh.
🔺 This is similar to the hadeeth in which the Prophet (may the peace and blessings of Allāh be upon him) told some of the companions that if they drop their whip from a camel, they shouldn’t put out their hand for someone to pick it up.
🔺This applies to those who seek the highest perfection in their religion, and we don’t advise this for people who are in need and then they end up harming themselves and others because they don’t ask for help.
🔺Therefore, there’s nothing wrong with asking for ruqyah, if a person is not able to do it themselves. However, if we imagine a raaqi himself, or a reciter of the Qur’an, who is able to do it for themselves – it’s much better for them not to ask someone else to do it.
🔺Not asking doesn’t mean to refuse an offer of ruqyah. So, if a person says, let me read on you, they should say yes, and this doesn’t stop them from being from the 70,000.
🔑The key thing here is that it is
(a) not harām to ask, regardless of the circumstances and
(b) it may be obligatory to ask for those who are unable to do it themselves, but
(c) for those who are able to do it themselves, this is better.
🚩Seeking advice is not seeking ruqyah – quote Surah Al-‘Asr
Stop people seeing you as a cure besides Allāh and relying on you besides Allāh:
1⃣ In the first place, you are getting people to recognise that their cure is from Allāh.
You are getting them to recite upon themselves.
“I didn’t pray because I wanted to be from the 70,000”
2⃣ The way that you present yourself to people and the way that you carry out your ruqyah, all of this is based upon people being encouraged to rely upon Allāh alone.
