Seeking remedy from Qur'an


Question :
What is the ruling on seeking remedy by the Qur'an, supplications and amulets?

Answer :
It is permissible to seek remedy by the Qur'an according to the following Hadith which is narrated by Abu-Sa'id Al-Khurdi, may Allah be pleased with him, who said:
"A group of Companions of Prophet (Peace Be Upon Him) went in a trip, and stopped by Arab tribe whom they asked to accommodate them, but the people of that tribe was refused. It so happened that the chief of that tribe was stung. His people tried their best to heal him but were unable to do so. They said to each other: ;Would that we seek help from those transients. They may have something. ' They came to them, and said, 'O people, our chief is stung, and we tried our best to heal him to no avail. Can you do something about it. ' One of the Companion said, 'Certainly, By Allah I use incantations. But you refused to accommodate us when we asked you. I will not recite any incantations for him unless you promise us a reward. ' They agreed to them a herd of sheep. The man went to the chief, and recite Surah Al-Fatihah while spitting on him. The chief recovered as though his ties were undone, and began walking as if nothing happened to him,"

Abu Sa'id said: "They gave the reward which they promised them. some of the Companions suggested that they should divide the sheep. But the person doing the incantations said, ' Do not do that until we go to the Messenger of Allah (Peace Be Upon Him) and report to him what had happened, and see what he will order us to do. When they came to the Messenger of Allah (Peace Be Upon Him). He asked the man doing the incantations:
How did you know that Surah Al-Fatihah could be used for incantation? You did the right thing. Divide the sheep among sheep among yourselves, and give me a share.
"How did you know that Surah Al-Fatihah could be used for incantation? You did the right thing. Divide the sheep among sheep among yourselves, and give me a share."
Al-Bukhari no. 2276, Muslim no. 2201, Abu Dawud no. 3418 and At Trimithi nos. 2063, 2064.
The Hadith signifies the legitimacy of seeking remedy by the Qur'an. As for as the amulets that contain Qur'anic Verses, it is not permissible according to valid opinion of scholars. And it is Allah who grants success. May He exalt the mention of our Prophet Muhammad, his household, and his Companions.
