Magic (Sehr) is a false satanic practice that has been going on since ancient times i.e. the time of Moses (peace be upon him) or even earlier, which took the form of a regular business among the people during the reign of Solomon (peace be upon him) and the wicked people of the society. These evil acts were done to harm the people.
To nullify and break it and distinguish between truth and falsehood, Allah Almighty sent his two angels Harut and Marut in human form as a test to tell people that this magic is a different thing which is false knowledge while Prophetic sciences and teachings are based on divine revelation, which is pure goodness and mercy. Therefore, apart from the prophetic sciences and teachings, do not take the path of disbelief by taking magic which is a false thing, but still, people continued to engage in this false practice and used to harm each other through this magic.

THE REALITY OF MAGIC IN THE QUR’AN
The description of magic is in detail in the verses of Surah Al-Baqarah [verse# 102] in the Holy Quran:
“They ˹instead˺ followed the magic promoted by the devils during the reign of Solomon. Never did Solomon disbelieve, rather the devils disbelieved. They taught magic to the people, along with what had been revealed to the two angels, Hârût and Mârût, in Babylon. The two angels never taught anyone without saying, “We are only a test ˹for you˺, so do not abandon ˹your˺ faith.” Yet people learned ˹magic˺ that caused a rift ˹even˺ between husband and wife; although their magic could not harm anyone except by Allah’s Will. They learned what harmed them and did not benefit them—although they already knew that whoever buys into magic would have no share in the Hereafter. Miserable indeed was the price for which they sold their souls, if only they knew!”
Even today in this Ummah, there are evil and rebellious people of the type of devils in our society, among them there are sorcerers (magicians) who are inferior to other evildoers, envious and evil-seeking evil people of the society. Combined, these subversive and satanic sciences create conflicts between innocent, ignorant, and innocent people through witchcraft and especially between husband and wife and other members of the family.

AUTHENTIC WAYS OF RUQYA SHARIYAH
Ruqyah Shariah refers to Shariah treatment. By doing it in the state of any disease, any pain or injury, and evil effects, healing is granted by the will of Allah Almighty. The following methods are used to perform Ruqyah Sharia:
FROM THE SURAHS OF THE QUR’AN:
Recite Surah Al-Nas and Surah Al-Falaq, blow into your hands, and rub them on your body.
Aisha: During the Prophet's fatal illness, he used to recite the Mu'auwidhat (Surat An-Nas and Surat Al- Falaq) and then blow his breath over his body. When his illness was aggravated, I used to recite those two Suras and blow my breath over him and make him rub his body with his hand for its blessings." (Mamar asked Az-Zuhri: How did the Prophet (ﷺ) use to blow? Az-Zuhri said: He used to blow on his hands and then passed them over his face.). (Ref: Sahih al-Bukhari 5735)
TREATING THE SITE OF PAIN OR INJURY:
It is better to recite Ruqya shari’ah for the Evil eye, Envy, Stings, and Pustules. To apply Ruqyah shari’a to the area of pain or injury, mix ground sand or clay with your saliva and apply it to the affected area.
‘A’isha reported that when any person fell ill with a disease or he had any ailment or he had any injury, the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) placed his forefinger upon the ground and then lifted it by reciting the name of Allah. (And said): The dust of our ground with the saliva of any one of us would serve as a means whereby our illness would be cured with the sanction of Allah. This hadith has been transmitted under the authority of Ibn Abu Shaiba and Zubair with a slight variation of wording. (Ref: Sahih Muslim 2194)
PLACE THE RIGHT HAND ON THE PAINFUL AREA AND RECITE THE FOLLOWING DUA:
Uthman b. Abu al-‘As Al-Thaqafi reported that he made a complaint of pain to Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) that he felt in his body at the time he had become Muslim. Thereupon Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) said: Place your hand at the place where you feel pain in your body and say Bismillah (in the name of Allah) three times and seven times A’udhu billahi wa qudratihi min sharri ma ajidu wa uhadhiru (I seek refuge with Allah and with His Power from the evil that I find and that I fear). أَعُوذُ بِاللَّهِ وَقُدْرَتِهِ مِنْ شَرِّ مَا أَجِدُ وَأُحَاذِرُ
(Ref: Sahih Muslim 2202)
RUQYAH FROM SURAH AL-FATIHA:
Recite Surah al-Fatihah as a ruqyah, collect your saliva and then spit on the spot for healing.
Narrated Abu Sa`id Al-Khudri: Some of the companions of the Prophet (ﷺ) came across a tribe amongst the tribes of the Arabs, and that tribe did not entertain them. While they were in that state, the chief of that tribe was bitten by a snake (or stung by a scorpion). They said, (to the companions of the Prophet (ﷺ) ), “Have you got any medicine with you or anybody who can treat with Ruqya?” The Prophet’s companions said, “You refuse to entertain us, so we will not treat (your chief) unless you pay us for it.” So they agreed to pay them a flock of sheep. One of them (the Prophet’s companions) started reciting Surat-al-Fatiha and gathering his saliva and spitting it (at the snake-bite). The patient got cured and his people presented the sheep to them, but they said, “We will not take it unless we ask the Prophet (whether it is lawful).” When they asked him, he smiled and said, “How do you know that Surat-al-Fatiha is a Ruqya? Take it (flock of sheep) and assign a share for me.” ( Ref: Sahih al-Bukhari 5736)
DOING RUQYAH BY PRAYING TO ALLAH:
We can also perform Ruqyah only by supplicating to Allah
Abu Sa’eed narrated that: Jibril came to the Prophet and said: “O Muhammad! Are you suffering?” He said: “Yes.” He said: “In the Name of Allah, I recite a prayer (Ruqyah) over you, from the evil of every person and the evil eye. In the Name of Allah I recite a prayer (Ruqyah) over you, may Allah cure you.” (Ref: Jami` at-Tirmidhi 972)
RUQYAH WITH WATER:
We can also recite verses of the Quran and blow on water, then drink it and bathe with it.
It was narrated that Umm Jundub said: “I saw the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) stoning the ‘Aqabah Pillar from the bottom of the valley on the Day of Sacrifice, then he went away. A woman from Khath’am followed him, and with her was a son of hers who had been afflicted, he could not speak. She said: ‘O Messenger of Allah! This is my son, and he is all I have left of my family. He has been afflicted and cannot speak.’ The Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said: ‘Bring me some water.’ So it was brought, and he washed his hands and rinsed out his mouth. Then he gave it to her and said: ‘Give him some to drink, and pour some over him, and seek Allah’s healing for him.’” She (Umm Jundub) said: “I met that woman and said: ‘Why don’t you give me some?’ She said: ‘It is only for the sick one.’ I met that woman one year later and asked her about the boy. She said: ‘He recovered and became (very) smart, not like the rest of the people.’” (Ref: Sunan Ibn Majah 3532)
Remember that Allah Almighty has not created any disease for which Allah Almighty has not revealed a cure. When a man, woman, or child has such anxiety and problems or such a disease that is not cured by the known treatment method, or if a person is restless and his affairs are scattered, then there are three dangerous causes, i.e. witchcraft, bad vision, and the matter of Jinn. For which the Shariah remedy is supplications and dhikr derived from the Book and Sunnah for Ruqyah Shariah.
