Ruqyah over yourself

Abu ‘Abdullah bin Abul’as (radi Allahu anhu) reported: I complained to the Messenger of Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) about a pain I had in my body. The Messenger of Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said, “Place your hand where you feel pain and say: Bismillah (With the Name of Allah)’ three times; and then repeat seven times: ‘A’udhu bi’izzatillahi wa qudratihi min sharri ma ajidu wa ‘uhadhiru (I seek refuge with Allah and with His Power from the evil that afflicts me and that which I apprehend).’”

[Sahih Muslim]


This Hadith tells us it is not necessary that a patient should exclusively get Ruqyah from others; rather he can also do Ruqyah himself by reciting the Prophet’s supplications mentioned above and in other narrations.

And Allah knows best!
