    there are some things you can read for shifa but you'll have to ask a scholar, the best thing is to support him always. if you don't mind me asking, what illness does he have?

    Volume:7 Book :70 (Patients)Number :545

    Narrated Abu Sa'id Al-Khudri and Abu Huraira:
    The Prophet said, "No fatigue, nor disease, nor sorrow, nor sadness, nor hurt, nor distress befalls a Muslim, even if it were the prick he receives from a thorn, but that Allah expiates some of his sins for that."



    Volume:7 Book :70 (Patients)Number :550

    Narrated Abdullah:
    I visited the Prophet during his ailments and he was suffering from a high fever. I said, "You have a high fever. Is it because you will have a double reward for it?" He said, "Yes, for no Muslim is afflicted with any harm but that Allah will remove his sins as the leaves of a tree fall down."



    Volume:7 Book :70 (Patients)Number :555

    Narrated Ata bin Abi Rabah:
    Ibn 'Abbas said to me, "Shall I show you a woman of the people of Paradise?" I said, "Yes." He said, "This black lady came to the Prophet and said, 'I get attacks of epilepsy and my body becomes uncovered; please invoke Allah for me.' The Prophet said (to her), 'If you wish, be patient and you will have (enter) Paradise; and if you wish, I will invoke Allah to cure you.' She said, 'I will remain patient,' and added, 'but I become uncovered, so please invoke Allah for me that I may not become uncovered.' So he invoked Allah for her."

    Re: mental illness

    my father had mind schizophrenia and was on tablets, alhumdullah, my family are tight knit and always there for him and tried to make him think positive and reduce any stress. support him and ensure he has his medication, make it a personal responsibility. take his mind off things and chat to him so his mind is occupied.

    Re: mental illness

    go to www.ruqyashariyah.org/forum, there are some raqis on there who specialise in treating mentally ill patients, post ur dads problem on the forum, and insha'Allah they will prescribe something for you to read (ie. sets of surahs)

    Re: mental illness

    Yes, make sure he has medication and that he is taking it. I'm bipolar. Luckily I can manage the ups and downs with the support of friends and my husband, but my brother is much worse. He has been in and out of hospital several times over the last 15 years and needs medication to cope. So, make sure your father takes what is prescribed. And make sure once he feels better he keeps taking them! Lots of people stop when they feel better because they think they don't need the meds anymore, so don't let that happen. And also make sure he knows that he has the support of his family and that he can come to you for help or just to talk. It's hard to trust people and open up when you have a mental illness, so let him know that he can trust you and talk to you.

    Praying wouldn't hurt either

    Re: mental illness

    Keep making dua's, have him treated by some ruqyah ustaz and don't forget to resort to medical/clinical/psychiatric treatments too. There are some people who suffer from black magic as well as clinical mental condition who went back to their normal state after getting those treatments. A person who never go back to his/her normal condition if dies will go straight to Jannah, InshaAllah.

    Re: mental illness

    There is nothing a raqi can do for a mental illness why is everyone suggesting this? For him to get ripped off by someone who will tell him he has jinn or black magic? And will probably make him worse? Mental illness is a disease like anything else. Would you tell someone with heart disease to go to a raqi as well? Obviously this man has been diagnosed with schizophrenia by professionals who saw the symptoms etc.

    I agree with the posts above by people who actually have experience of mental illness. He needs support and understanding from his family. And to make sure he takes his medication, has regular check ups, and you are with him as much as you can be. And for him to make sure he reads his prayers and as much Quran as he can in his spare time. You don't need a raqi to tell you that.

    Re: mental illness

    I don't mean to insult raqis or say all of them rip people off, what I mean is there are very few who are legit and reputable. The chances of him going to a dodgey one who will tell him to read this ayah 12446 times are high.

    I think ur confusing raqis with dodgy maulanas who work with jinns. As long as the raqi uses only Qur'an and Sunnah to help cure a patient, there is nothing wrong. Like i said, there's the forum www.ruqyashariyah.org/forum, there are genuine raqis on there to answer questions for the person to do self-treatment, and if the person wants to see a raqi, insha'Allah they will recommend a genuine one
