To perform Ruqya over a patient by reciting Al-Mu’awwidhat

1415. Narrated ‘Aaisha (radhi Allaahu anha) :

Whenever Allaah’s Messenger (Sallallaahu Alaihi Wasallam) became sick, he would recite Mu’awwidhat (Soorat Al-Falaq and Surat An-Nas) and then blow his breath over his body. When he became seriously ill I used to recite (these two Surah) and rub his hands over his body hoping for its blessings.
