The Ahadeeth of Tawheed
‘Silsilah Ahadeeth As-Saheehah’
Abbas Abu Yahya
Chapters of Tawheed and the Shahadtayn
14- From the Completeness of Relying upon Allaah Ta’ala is Leaving off Cauterization and Requesting Ruqiyaah
“Whoever gets cauterized or requests Ruqiyaah then he is far from relying upon Allaah.”
Silsilah Saheehah: 244
I say: this hadeeth shows a dislike of cauterization, and requesting Ruqiyaah. As for the first thing then it is due to being afflicted with the fire. As for the other thing then it is due to the person being in need of someone else in which there is benefit, although this benefit is not strong.
This is why from the characteristics of those who enter Paradise with out being taken in account for anything, is that they do not request Ruqiyaah, nor do they become cauterized, nor do they seek omens, and they rely upon their Lord. As is mentioned in the hadeeth of Ibn Abbas in Bukhari and Muslim.
15- None knows the unseen except Allaah
” There are five things which are not know except to Allaah:
<<Verily, Allaah! With Him (Alone) is the knowledge of the Hour, He sends down the rain, and knows that which is in the wombs. No person knows what he will earn tomorrow, and no person knows in what land he will die. Verily, Allaah is the All-Knower, All-Aware >>”
Silsilah Saheehah: 2914
