In our country there are some people who ascribe to the methodology of the Salaf who are trying to implement shar`ee ruqya. They have set up a special center specifically for this ruqya. They take fees and they encourage people to avoid being treated with modern medicine. They say that these are the medicines of the disbelievers, and one should not use such treatments. What would you say about this?
This is a baseless claim. Yes, one should seek treatment through the Qur’aan and ruqya, there is no problem with this. However, this does not stop one from seeking treatment through medicine also. “Allaah did not send down any disease without also sending its cure, whether one is aware of it or not.”
 i.e. when the Qur’aan is recited over oneself or others in order to cure illness
