Treating Sihr

Q 2: How can a person get rid of Sihr (sorcery)? Indeed, the woman affected regularly recites Adhkar (invocations) and her Wird (portion of Qur'an recited with consistency). Also, a Ruqyah (reciting Qur'an and saying supplications over the sick seeking healing) has been recited over her but the signs of Sihr are still apparent, as food and water accumulate by the end of the Pharynx. Whenever she reads certain Ayahs to ward off Sihr, she feels itching. Kindly, give us the legal opinion in this regard. We hope that the person who provides the answer practices Ruqyah himself.

A: Removing Sihr is permissible by the Qur'an and the legal formulae of supplications as well as the permissible medicines. This should be repeated until the person affected by Sihr is cured by Allah's will.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
