People gathering to recite Qur'an for the patient

Q 3: What is the ruling on gathering to recite the Qur'an over a sick person and make Khatmah (completing of one reading of the whole Qur'an)?

A: The permissibility of reciting the Qur'an over the sick and asking Allah (Glorified and Exalted be He) to cure them by reciting the Qur'an over them and blowing upon them, or the organ in need of treatment, is authentically reported in the Sunnah (whatever is reported from the Prophet). In fact, this is a useful treatment in sha’a-Allah (if Allah wills). The most useful way is to recite Al-Fatihah, Ayat-ul-Kursy (the Qur’anic Verse of Allah’s Throne, Surah Al-Baqarah, 2:255), Surah Al-Ikhlas, Surah Al-Falaq, and Surah Al-Nas. The entire Qur'an is a healing, as Allah (Exalted be He) states, Say: “It is for those who believe, a guide and a healing." May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
