Lesson 1 The Legitimacy of Healing with the Noble Quran

Chapter 1

Lesson 1

In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful

And We send down of the Quran that which is healing and mercy to the believers.

O Allah, all praise is due to You for Your enlightenment, for You have guided us. All praise is due to You for Your greatness, for You have forgiven us. All praise is due to You for Your generosity, for You have granted us. You have revealed Your great Book as guidance and mercy, and made it a cure and blessing that removes illnesses and ailments from our bodies, just as it removes ignorance, disbelief, and uncertainty from our hearts.

We also send blessings and peace upon Your Messenger, Your chosen one, Your friend, and our savior, Prophet Muhammad, who recognized the value of the Quran and used it as a remedy to treat himself and others from various illnesses and afflictions. He also encouraged seeking refuge in it during times of calamities and crises. We ask You to be pleased with his noble family, his distinguished companions, and those who follow them in righteousness until the Day of Judgment.

There is no doubt that the Noble Quran is a complete remedy for all psychological and physical diseases.

Allah the Almighty says: “And We send down of the Quran that which is healing and mercy to the believers, but it does not increase the wrongdoers except in loss.” [Surah Al-Isra’, 17:82]

It is narrated that Prophet Ibrahim (peace be upon him) asked Allah, “O Lord, from where does healing come?” Allah replied, “From Me.” Ibrahim then asked, “Then what about the doctors?” Allah said, “I send the medicine through their hands.”

Similarly, it is narrated that Prophet Musa (peace be upon him) asked Allah, “O Lord, from where does healing and cure come?” Allah replied, “From Me.” Musa asked, “Then what do the doctors do?” Allah said, “They eat from their livelihood and comfort My servants’ souls until I provide either healing or death.”

It is also narrated that when Prophet Musa (peace be upon him) was afflicted with severe pain in his stomach while he was in the Sinai desert, he complained to Allah, seeking a cure. Allah guided him to a plant in the desert that he ate from and was cured for that time. He praised Allah and went on his way. However, the illness returned after some time, and he ate from the same plant but his illness did not go away. Allah then spoke to him, saying, “You ate from the plant the first time by My permission and were cured, but the second time you ate from it on your own, without seeking My permission, and therefore, your illness did not go away. Do you not know, O Musa, that the entire world is full of deadly poisons, and that their antidote is in My name?”

And from Osama bin Shareek, he said: “I was with the Prophet (peace be upon him) when the Bedouins came and asked him, ‘What is the best thing that people are given?’ He said, ‘Good manners.’ They said, ‘O Messenger of Allah, do you get sick?’ He said, ‘Yes, O slaves of Allah, I get sick. You should seek treatment, for Allah Almighty has not created any disease but He has also created a cure for it, except for one disease.’ They said, ‘What is it?’ He said, ‘Old age.'”

And from Ibn Abi Khuzaimah, from his father, he said: “I asked the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him), ‘O Messenger of Allah, what do you think about using incantations, seeking medical treatment, and taking precautions against disease? Can anything be changed that Allah has already decreed?’ He said, ‘They are part of the decree of Allah.'”

Allah Almighty says in the Quran, “O mankind, there has come to you instruction from your Lord and healing for what is in the breasts and guidance and mercy for the believers” [Surah Yunus: 57].

The Quran is a cure for the hearts from the diseases of doubts and suspicions and a cure for the bodies from illnesses. Whenever a person seeks this goal, he will obtain psychological and physical healing by the permission of Allah Almighty.

Narrated by Ali (may Allah be pleased with him), the Prophet (peace be upon him) said: “The best medicine is the Quran.” [Ibn Majah, Book of Medicine, Chapter on Healing with the Quran, and it is considered good by some scholars and weak by Al-Albani].

And in another narration, “The Quran is the medicine.” [Hasan by Al-Manawi, weak by Al-Albani].

And in another narration, “Take honey and the Quran as your cure.” [Ibn Majah, authenticated by Al-Hakim and Al-Dhahabi, weak by Al-Albani].

How can healing be obtained through the Quran?

This can be achieved through two things:

1. Reciting it, especially during the last third of the night, while intending to seek healing.
2. Using it for Ruqyah, as the effect of reciting the Quran produces a great impact on strength, vitality, health, and well-being that cannot be equaled by any herbal mixtures or compound formulations. Therefore, we should deal directly with the Quran, as it is easy for everyone who is sincere in their dealings with it to find in reciting it.

These are three separate passages in Arabic:

1. “Al-Bukhari narrated from Abu Sa’id Al-Khudri, may Allah be pleased with him, that a group of companions of the Messenger of Allah, peace be upon him and his family and companions, were on a journey and passed by a tribe of the Arabs who hosted them. However, they did not honor their guest rights. So they said to them, ‘Do you have anyone who is ill or afflicted, for the Lord of this tribe is a healer?’ One of them said, ‘Yes,’ so they went to him and recited Surat Al-Fatihah (the Opening Chapter of the Quran) for him, and he was cured. He gave them a flock of sheep, but they refused to accept it and said, ‘We will not take it until we mention it to the Prophet, peace be upon him and his family and companions.’ So they went to the Prophet and told him what happened. He smiled and said, ‘How do you know that it is a cure?’ Then he said, ‘Take it and divide it among yourselves.'”

2. “Aisha, may Allah be pleased with her, narrated that when the Prophet, peace be upon him, felt sick, he would recite Al-Mu’awwidhat (the last two chapters of the Quran, Surat Al-Falaq and Surat An-Nas) on himself and blow on his hands. When his pain became severe, I would recite them for him and wipe his hands with my hands, seeking the blessings of his hands.”

3. “In another narration from Aisha, may Allah be pleased with her, she said, ‘When the Prophet, peace be upon him, went to bed every night, he would put his hands together and blow into them, then recite Surat Al-Ikhlas (Quran Chapter 112), Surat Al-Falaq (Quran Chapter 113), and Surat An-Nas (Quran Chapter 114), and wipe his body with them as much as he could, starting with his head and face and whatever he could reach of his body. He would do this three times.'”

مشروعية التداوي بالقرآن الكريم

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم 

*وننزل من القرآن ماهو شفاء ورحمة للمؤمنين*

اللهم لك الحمد تم نورك فهديت ولك الحمد عظم حلمك فغفرت ولك الحمد بسطت يدك فأعطيت أنزلت كتابك العظيم هدى ورحمة وجعلته شفاء ونعمة، يذهب عن الأبدان الأدواء والأوصاب كما يزيل عن القلوب الجهل والشرك والارتياب

ونصلي ونسلم على رسولك وصفيك وخليلك ونجيك سيدنا محمد الذي عرف قدر القرآن واتخذه دواء يعالج به نفسه وغيره مما ينزل من الأمراض وحض على التعوذ به مما ينوب من الحوادث والأعراض ونسألك الرضا على آله الكرام وصحابته الأعلام ومن تبعهم بإحسان إلى يوم الدين*

فمما لا شك فيه أن القرآن الكريم هو الشفاء التام من جميع الأمراض النفسية والعضوية

*قال تعالى: {وَنُنَزِّلُ مِنَ الْقُرْآنِ مَا هُوَ شِفَاء وَرَحْمَةٌ لِّلْمُؤْمِنِينَ وَلاَ يَزِيدُ الظَّالِمِينَ إَلاَّ خَسَاراً } [الإسراء82]*

روي أن سيدنا إبراهيم عليه السلام سأل ربه فقال: يا رب ممن الدواء؟ قال مني. قال: فما بال الطبيب؟ قال رجل أُرسل الدواء على يديه

وروي عن موسى عليه السلام: يا رب ممن الدواء والشفاء؟ قال مني قال فما يصنع الأطباء؟ قال يأكلون أرزاقهم ويطيبون نفوس عبادي حتى يأتي شفائي أو قبضي

كما روي أن سيدنا موسى عليه السلام انتابه ألم شديد في بطنه وهو في صحراء سيناء فشكا إلى الله تعالى وتضرع إليه طالبا منه الشفاء فدله الله تعالى على عشب في مكان بالصحراء فذهب إليه موسى فأكل منه فشفي لساعته فحمد الله تعالى وانصرف ثم عاوده المرض بعد حين فتناول من تلقاء نفسه ذاك العشب فلم يذهب مرضه فكلم الله تعالى في هذ فقال الله تعالى له لقد تناولت العشب في المرة الأولى مني فشفيت وفي المرة الثانية تناولته من نفسك فلم تدعني فلم يذهب مرضك ألا تعلم يا موسى أن الدنيا كلها سم قاتل وترياقها اسمي

وعن أسامة بن شريك قال كنت عند النبي صل الله عليه وسلم فجاءت الأعراب فسألوه ما خير ما أعطي الناس قال خلق حسن قالوا يا رسول الله أنتداوى قال نعم عباد الله تداووا فإن الله عز وجل لم يضع في الأرض داء إلا وضع له شفاء غير داء واحد قالوا وما هو قال: الْهَرَمُ

وعن ابن أبي خزامة عن أبيه قال سألت رسول الله صل الله عليه وآله وسلم فقلت يا رسول الله أرأيت رقى نسترقيها ودواء نتداوى به وتقاة نتقيها هل يرد من قدر الله شيئاً قال هي من قدر الله

ال الله تعالى يَا أَيُّهَا النَّاسُ قَدْ جَاءَتْكُمْ مَوْعِظَةٌ مِنْ رَبِّكُمْ وَشِفَاءٌ لِمَا فِي الصُّدُورِ وَهُدًى وَرَحْمَةٌ لِلْمُؤْمِنِينَ [ يونس: 57]*

فالقرآن شفاء للقلوب من أمراض الشبهات والوساو وشفاء للأبدان من الأسقام فمتى استحضر العبد هذا المقصد فإنه يحصل له الشفاء النفسي والبدني بإذن الله تعالى

فعن علي رضي الله عنه قال النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم خير الدواء القرآن [ابن ماجة، كتاب الطب، باب الاستشفاء بالقرآن، وحسنه بعض أهل العلم، وضعفه الألباني]

وفي رواية (القرآن هو الدواء) [حسنه المناوي، وضعفه الألباني]

وفي رواية عليكم بالشفاءين العسل والقرآن [ابن ماجه وصححه الحاكم والذهبي وضعفه الألباني]

كيف يحصل الشفاء بالقرآن ؟

يحصل ذلك بأمرين

القيام به وخاصة في جوف الليل الآخر مع استحضار نية الشفاء

-الرقية به فالريق الناتج من تلاوة القرآن له أثر عظيم في القوة والنشاط والصحة والعافية لا يماثله أي خلطة من خلطات الأعشاب أو مركب من مركبات الصيادلة فينبغي أن نتعامل مع القرآن مباشرة فهو ميّسر لكل من صدق في التعامل معه وجدّ في القيام به

روى البخاري عن أبي سعيد الخدري رضي الله عنه أن ناساً من أصحاب رسول الله صل الله عليه وآله وسلم كانوا في سفر فمروا بحي من أحياء العرب فاستضافوهم، فلم يضيفوهم فقالوا لهم: هل فيكم راق فإن سيد الحي لديغ أو مصاب فقال رجل منهم نعم فأتاه فرقاه بفاتحة الكتاب فبرأ الرجل فأعطي قطيعاً من الغنم فأبى أن يقبلها وقال حتى أذكر ذلك للنبي صل الله عليه وسلم فأتى النبي صل الله عليه وآله وسلم فذكر ذلك له فقال يا رسول الله والله ما رقيت إلا بفاتحة الكتاب فتبسم وقال وما أدراك أنها رقيةثم قالخذوا منهم واضربوا لي سهمي معكم

وعن عائِشَةَ رضي الله عنهاأَنَّ رَسُولَ اللهِ صل الله عليه وسلم كَانَ إِذَا اشْتَكَىى يَقْرَأُ عَلَى نَفْسِهِ بِالْمَعَوِّذَاتِ وَيَنْفُثُ فَلَمَّا اشْتَدَّ وَجَعُهُ كُنْتُ أَقْرَأُ عَلَيْهِ وَأَمَسَحُ بِيَدِهِ رَجَاءَ بَرَكَتِهَا

وفي رواية لمسلم كَانَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صَلَّ اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ إِذَا مَرِضَ أَحَدٌ مِنْ أَهْلِهِ نَفَثَ عَلَيْهِ بِالْمُعَوِّذَاتِ فَلَمَّا مَرِضَ مَرَضَهُ الَّذِي مَاتَ فِيهِ جَعَلْتُ أَنْفُثُ عَلَيْهِ وَأَمْسَحُهُ بِيَدِ نَفْسِهِ لِأَنَّهَا كَانَتْ أَعْظَمَ بَرَكَةً مِنْ يَدِي

وفي رواية عَنْ عَائِشَةَ رضي الله عنها أَنَّ النَّبِيَّ صَلَّ اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ كَانَ إِذَا أَوَى إِلَى فِرَاشِهِ كُلَّ لَيْلَةٍ جَمَعَ كَفَّيْهِ ثُمَّ نَفَثَ فِيهِمَا فَقَرَأَ فِيهِمَا قُلْ هُوَ اللَّهُ أَحَدٌ وَقُلْ أَعُوذُ بِرَبِّ الْفَلَقِ وَقُلْ أَعُوذُ بِرَبِّ النَّاسِ ثُمَّ يَمْسَحُ بِهِمَا مَا اسْتَطَاعَ مِنْ جَسَدِهِ يَبْدَأُ بِهِمَا عَلَى رَأْسِهِ وَوَجْهِهِ وَمَا أَقْبَلَ مِنْ جَسَدِهِ يَفْعَلُ ذَلِكَ ثَلَاثَ مَرَّاتٍ

وروى أبو داود عَنْ عُقْبَةَ بْنِ عَامِرٍ قَالَ بَيْنَا أَنَا أَسِيرُ مَعَ رَسُولِ اللَّهِ -صَلَّ اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ بَيْنَ الْجُحْفَةِ وَالْأَبْوَاءِ إِذْ غَشِيَتْنَا رِيحٌ وَظُلْمَةٌ شَدِيدَةٌ فَجَعَلَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صَلَّ اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ يَتَعَوَّذُ بِأَعُوذُ بِرَبِّ الْفَلَقِ وَأَعُوذُ بِرَبِّ النَّاسِ وَيَقُولُ (يَا عُقْبَةُ تَعَوَّذْ بِهِمَا فَمَا تَعَوَّذَ مُتَعَوِّذٌ بِمِثْلِهِمَا) قَالَ وَسَمِعْتُهُ يَؤُمُّنَا بِهِمَا فِي الصَّلَاةِ

وروى النسائي عن ابْنَ عَابِسٍ الْجُهَنِيِّ أَنَّ رَسُولَ اللَّهِ -صَلَّ اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ قَالَ لَهُ: (يَا ابْنَ عَابِسٍ أَلَا أَدُلُّكَ أَوْ قَالَ أَلَا أُخْبِرُكَ- بِأَفْضَلِ مَا يَتَعَوَّذُ بِهِ الْمُتَعَوِّذُونَ؟) قَالَ: بَلَى يَا رَسُولَ اللَّهِ. قَالَ: (قُلْ أَعُوذُ بِرَبِّ الْفَلَقِ وَقُلْ أَعُوذُ بِرَبِّ النَّاسِ هَاتَيْنِ السُّورَتَيْنِ)

وعَنْ أَبِي سَعِيدٍ الخدري قَالَ: كَانَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صَلَّ اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ يَتَعَوَّذُ مِنْ عَيْنِ الْجَانِّ وَعَيْنِ الْإِنْسِ فَلَمَّا نَزَلَتْ الْمُعَوِّذَتَانِ أَخَذَ بِهِمَا وَتَرَكَ مَا سِوَى ذَلِكَ

يقول ابن القيم من المعلوم أنَّ بعض الكلام له خواصُّ ومنافعُ مُجرَّبة فما الظنُّ بكلام ربّ العالمين الذي فَضْلُهُ على كل كلامٍ كفضلِ اللهِ على خلقه الذي هو الشفاءُ التام والعِصْمةُ النافعة والنورُ الهادي والرحمة العامة الذي لو أُنزِلَ على جبل لتَصَدَّعَ من عظمته وجلالته. قال تعالى: {وَنُنَزِّلُ مِنَ الْقُرْآنِ مَا هُوَ شِفَاءٌ وَرَحْمَةٌ لِّلْمُؤْمِنِينَ}[الإسراء: 82]
