What is a Raqi?
The term ‘Raqi’ is used for an Islamic ‘Spiritual healer or exorcist and refers to someone who has knowledge of Islam, to Ruqyah treatment through education and experience, and performs ruqyah treatment for individuals with ailments who are unable to perform ruqyah upon themselves (self ruqyah). A person may not be able to perform ruqyah on themselves if they are severely unwell or do not have sufficient knowledge or understanding of their ailment.
To make matters more confusing, there are a number who mixes permissible types of ruqyah with Haraam/prohibited actions in order to bring about results and use this to disadvantage, harm and confuse the ummah who are desperately seeking help. But all is not lost, if we hold firm to the Qur’an and Sunnah a Muslim will never be led astray by all of the misguidance they bring.
