Permission to make Ruqya through Fatiha


As- Salamu alaikum beloved Shaikh,
Today my husband had a strong headache and, to help him, the idea came to me to recite (in silence) two Surat-l Fatiha, and then blow on his forehead. Then he asked me what had I done, and when I answered he told me that was FORBIDDEN, that a permission was required to blow Quranic verses. I was very sorry and upset then, Astagfirullah. Is it possible to get such permission, or should I never do it again? Thank you


`Alaykum as-Salam,
After Abu Sa`id al-Khudri (Allah be well-pleased with him) recited Fatiha over the Bedouin who had been stung by a scorpion the Holy Prophet (upon him blessings and peace) asked him: “How did you know it was a healing recitation (ruqya)?” Then he said “You did well.” (Sahih al-Bukhari) A man asked the Holy Prophet (upon him blessings and peace): “Messenger of Allah! Shall I use ruqya (healing recitation)?” He replied: “Whoever
among you is able to benefit his brother, let him do so.”, i.e. he gave general permission for each and every able Muslim. (Sahih Muslim)
Fatiha is an absolute good that requires no specific permission but the latter adds certitude in the heart. When you have baya` with Mawlana Shaykh Nazim then you have confirmation of permission, so no worries.
