Assalamu Alaikum Shaykh,

I have anxiety that is a big problem in my life. I would like to know if it is permissible to remove my anxiety through hypnosis. Is there a definite ruling?

May Allah Bless you,



As-Selamu ‘Aleykum,

Using hypnotism as a means of treating disease or of doing anything else is not permissible. It implies turning to someone other than Allaah (Jinn) and goes beyond the ordinary means which Allaah has created for His creatures and permitted them to use.
