Ruqyah may be used to heal non-Muslim
Fatwa No: 342850


Assalaamu alaykum. I had a partner whom I loved and who equally loved me back. Some time later, however, she started creating really negative hatred towards me and started hating me for no reason. Before learning about religious knowledge, I contacted numerous magicians, one of which told me that she was under a very powerful spell, and he recommended me not to try to remove it because of the high intensity of the spell. The magician even told me the name of the person who was involved in this act, which was her own sister. Her family did not like me from the beginning, but is there any way possible in islam that I can remove the hatred from her and attract her towards the religion again? I heard that reciting Ayat Al-Kursi could help, but I am not sure about it. Also, we are both Sikh, but I am personally very open religiously, whereas she is not into religion anymore because of the evil spirit that makes her commit sins. Could the teachings of Islam in any order or way help me remove the spell from her? This is a fight I have to finish in any circumstance possible.


All perfect praise be to Allah, The Lord of the worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of worship except Allah and that Muhammad  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allaah exalt his mention ) is His slave and Messenger.

First of all, we thank you for contacting us and having confidence in us even though you are not a Muslim. We welcome you and we hope to serve you in the best manner.

We perceive from your question that you have a sound mind, which we hope will lead you to goodness. Indeed, all goodness lies in embracing Islam, which is the true religion that achieves – Allah willing – happiness for the person in this worldly life and in the Hereafter.

In this regard, please refer to fatwas 88051, 88906 and 81979 about the merits of the Islamic religion.

We would like to let you know, first of all, that our religion does not permit such affectionate relationships except within the framework of a valid marriage. Therefore, it is not permissible to use the Quran in order to realize this sinful relationship.

On the other hand, Islam does not allow going to magicians because this has many negative consequences.

As for the treatment of magic, then we, Muslims, have a legitimate method, which is by performing Ruqyah (healing through Quranic recitation and supplications), and it is permissible for a Muslim to perform Ruqyah on a non-Muslim. Please refer to fatwa 333235.

In any case, if you do not succeed in marrying her, then know that she is not the only woman in this world. Hence, you should not be attached to her or make your life depend on her. There are many women out there. How do you know that you will achieve happiness with her? Many marriages are based on this kind of love and end up in failure.

Allah knows best.
