One cannot expect any treatments or the help to come from Allah if one is sinning. If you are sinning, do NOT blame us and say that Quraan does not work

Absolutely. many people think that Ruqya is just magically going to work, bu do not understand that the cure only comes if Allah is pleased with that person. Ruqya helps the patient come closer to Allah.

Alhumdullilah...Allah has allowed us to have people dedicated to assist those inflicted with sihr n jinn. Undoubtedly they are doing a good job and Allah reward them إن شاء الله.
Thing is..those affected and the raaqis also...hve some form of sin in their lives. Most definitely we should abandon all sin n gain marifat of Allah. We need to also realise that even if a person 'thinks' they are is still upto Allah wheter the treatment will assist them or not. All things and all systems in place have Allah behind them making them work. So if our treatment is not working or not working to our standards and time frame. Let us sincerely turn to Allah and continue to beg of Him and understand that all conditions come from Him and will only change according to Allahs plan for us....we have many examples to go by...jus to mention the life and sickness of Ayub (as)...a nabi of Allah who was inflicted with so many ailments fo so many years..being the messenger of Allah he had no real sin...he turned complete attention to Allah...yet his cure only came in Allah's timing....may Allah grant us all the understanding إن شاء الله

Ruqyah Shar'iyyah is wholely based on using Quraan, Sunnah and optionally, some other effective medication that falls within the ambit of shariah. Providing there is no shirk or kufr involved, it can never be said that Quraan and/or Sunnah do not work..... Even for an instance.

Of the main objectives, is to bring ourselves closer to Allah ta aala by means of Quraan and sunnah. Similar to any physical ailment, at times we need to consult with doctors more than just once; at other instances, medication needs to gradually and progressively be increased. Similarly, patience is needed both by Ruqaa as well as those upon whom ruqya is performed.
Our Aqeedah around 'proper' treatment needs to be rectified and ultimately we need to recognise that shifaa lies solely with Allah ta aala.
For the most part, assistance is ideally given once-off; but circumstantially, if a particular case requires further intensive treatment.... Its in best interest to follow up. Having said this, these cases are far and few in between
It behoves both Raaqi as well as Patient to turn only to Allah ta aala, recognising everything else as being of the legitimate means that Allah ta aala has created and to work at building firm yaqeen/conviction in what our Nabi
صلي الله عليه وسلم has advised. If it does not work as we wish today, then with duaa and by working at placing our yaqeen in what is true and prescribed... It may work better the next time. The test may lie in 'how much' or ' till when' we are willing to place our conviction in it. With true conviction, ease must come!

In summation.... Ruqyah always works! It is we who need to sharpen our swords, rectify our conviction, place our full trust in Allah ta aala only and return to Quraan and Sunnah.
