Is Reiki Halal or Haram?


Assalam Akaykom Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakatuhu!

Approximately 5 years before taking Bayat I attended Reiki lessons and felt strong heat coming from my hands to help with healing myself and others ( with Allah’s permission).

I wanted to find out if Reiki is considered haram? Is this good energy or bad energy being used?

Also is there any overlap between Reiki and Tariqa? Sometimes I recite Salawat and Fatiha and use my hands for healing but don’t use the symbols that were taught when I attended Reiki.

Thanks as always for your kind support and may Allah bless you for all your efforts.
