What is Ruqya? Ruqya is the act of removing Jinns or Evil spirits from human body through recitation of the Quran. Perhaps, there are a few things such as Musk, Habbatus sauda that most jinns dislike. However, Ruqya can also be performed on someone suffering from the effects of black magic or evil eyes. Note that, Ruqya is not bid'a. It is agreed upon by all the ulamas without exception. Some people when they are possessed by any of the above, ruqya fails to cure them. So they continue to suffer from the effects.
