What is the ruling on using large stamps on which are written verses from the Qur’aan or adhkaar or du’aa’s -- including those which deal specifically with magic/witchcraft, or those which deal with the (evil) eye, or those which deal with the jinn -- and dipping the stamp in water in which saffron has been dissolved, then stamping it on pieces of paper which will then be washed off and the water drunk?
Praise be to Allaah.
It is not permissible for a raaqi to write aayahs and prescribed du’aa’s on stamps to be dipped in water in which saffron has been dissolved, and then put them onto pieces of paper to take the place of writing, and then to wash off those papers so that the water may be drunk, because it is a condition of ruqyah as prescribed by sharee’ah that both the raaqi and the one for whom the ruqyah is done should have the intention of seeking healing by the Book of Allaah at the time of writing. And Allaah knows best.
[Translator’s note: Raaqi means one who does ruqyah i.e., reciting Qur’aan and du’aa’s over the sick for the purpose of seeking healing]
