Treating a snake bite

Q 2: When a person is bitten by a snake, there is a man who treats the snake bite by tying a palm leaf to the place of the injury. When the injured person is cured, this palm leaf is removed. Is this correct? What is the evidence for this?

A: This is neither correct nor permissible. A snake bite should be treated with Ruqyah (reciting Qur'an and saying supplications over the sick seeking healing) with Surah Al-Fatihah or other Surahs of the Qur'an and the Prophetic Hadiths. It is also cured by tying the place between the bite and the heart, so that the poison does not reach the heart with the blood. The vein in the place of the bite should be opened so that the poison and the teeth of the insect come out with the blood. (Part No. 25; Page No. 106) May Allah grant us success.
