Reiki and Islam

All perfect praise be to Allaah, The Lord of the Worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of worship except Allaah, and that Muhammad (SAW) is His slave and Messenger.

Before I begin I would like to say that this research was an unbiased research. I started finding about reiki when I heard about it on TV and from people who practice it. I have given account of what is reiki from the sites of institutes of reiki and also from wikipedia.

I begin with verses from the Holy Quran and Hadees of Prophet (saw).

Allah says: And they ask you (o Muhammad (saw)) concerning the ruh (the spirit). Say: “The Ruh (the spirit) is one of the things, the knowledge of which is only with my Lord. And of the knowledge, you (mankind) have been given only a little. “ (Surah 17 Al-Isra , Ayat # 85)

Narrated by Abdullah (Bukhari book 003 hadees 127)

While I was going through the ruins of medina and he was reclining on a date palm leaf stalk, some jews passed by. Some of them said to the others . Ask him (the prophet peaceb upon him) about the spirit. Some of them said that they should not ask him that question as he may might give a reply which would displease them. But some of them insisted on asking, and so one of them stood up and asked, “O abu-al- Qasim! what is the spirit?” The Prophet remained quiet. I thought he was being inspired Divinely Inspired. So i stayed till that state of Prophet ( of being Divinely inspiration) was over. The prophet then recited the above verses. (surah 17, ayat 85).

On the authority of ‘Umar, radiyallahu ‘anhu, who said:

“While we were one day sitting with the Messenger of Allah, sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam, there appeared before us a man dressed in extremely white clothes and with very black hair. No traces of journeying were visible on him, and none of us knew him.

He sat down close by the Prophet, sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam, rested his knee against his thighs, and said, O Muhammad! Inform me about Islam.” Said the Messenger of Allah, sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam, “Islam is that you should testify that there is no deity save Allah and that Muhammad is His Messenger, that you should perform salah (ritual prayer), pay the zakah, fast during Ramadan, and perform Hajj (pilgrimage) to the House (the Ka’bah at Makkah), if you can find a way to it (or find the means for making the journey to it).” Said he (the man), “You have spoken truly.”

We were astonished at his thus questioning him and telling him that he was right, but he went on to say, “Inform me about iman (faith).” He (the Messenger of Allah) answered, “It is that you believe in Allah and His angels and His Books and His Messengers and in the Last Day, and in fate (qadar), both in its good and in its evil aspects.” He said, “You have spoken truly.”

Then he (the man) said, “Inform me about Ihsan.” He (the Messenger of Allah) answered, ” It is that you should serve Allah as though you could see Him, for though you cannot see Him yet He sees you.” He said, “Inform me about the Hour.” He (the Messenger of Allah) said, “About that the one questioned knows no more than the questioner.” So he said, “Well, inform me about the signs thereof (i.e. of its coming).” Said he, “They are that the slave-girl will give birth to her mistress, that you will see the barefooted ones, the naked, the destitute, the herdsmen of the sheep (competing with each other) in raising lofty buildings.” Thereupon the man went off.

I waited a while, and then he (the Messenger of Allah) said, “O ‘Umar, do you know who that questioner was?” I replied, “Allah and His Messenger know better.” He said, “That was Jibril. He came to teach you your religion.””

  1. Do you have something else which elaborates Reiki is not prohibited in Islam actually the reason of asking you this question because i start to learning some Reiki but before that i have to study its not going to conflicts with our islamic thoughts.

    So if you have some more material of something please let me know.

  3. Reiki Is Haram and shirk and not permitted in islam. reiki symbols are not japanese alphabets as explained by Prof. Moiz Hussain. People know more about reiki at level 2 and 3 when symbols and belief come out. emotional symbol in reiki means=buddah in me and God become one. distance symbol means= budha in me contacts budah in you. Prophets PBH as clearly prohibited buddist and monk traditions such as shaving head other than hajj and ummrah and wearing of saffron coloured clothes worn by buddist monks. also when you invoke or draw emotional and distance and master symbols you are invoking buddah not allah and is shirk.

    5. Assalam-o-Alaikum! Guidance

      I was not talking about that reki involving Allah's name .thats allowed in islam even I use that to heal my pain or my family with hands obviously .

      Note : I was talking about that reiki which involves buddhist symbols or hindus or christian mantras. like cho ko re...etc these are symbols if you only see but the back picture is that these are the callings for shaytan devils who will come and do their work .
      If anyone start taking help from shaytan what you call them muslim no .you will be out of Islam means kufur. and lots lots of people are getting engaged in this sort of reiki which is totally haram .Such reiki instructor are misguiding muslims or other humans.

      you can do reiki (dum) by calling Allah's name there are many healing name of Allah ,there are many healing Quranic verses,and many more .even u can do muraqba of la illaha illah .

      hoping I cleared you what I wanted muslim people to know.

  4. OOOH DEAR lord!!!!!! ya rabbi alameen!!

    What reiki have you been following?

    i don't think that you are following the traditional USUI mikao Reiki.

    Because THe symbols are magick. He never used or taught anyone those symbols. He isn't the one who introduce the symbol. because he never invented or create it. when he did remote healing he just simply trained to be able to send his energy and energy surround him to the person and harvest it, so the patient can be help with healing because he needs someone else energy to get mentally strong. It has been proven. if you are mentally strong so will physically.

    it was simply years of training. and his mantras were just poems that he used to clear his mind. for example if he was angry. he would meditate and say "today i would not be angry." and that helped him to calm himself.

    DON'T USE THE SYMBOLS!!!

    please tell me what reiki did your reiki master said? karuna? seichem? kundalini?

  7. salaam alaikom,

    Before you start with Reiki, my most important advise is: Educate yourself on what Reiki is all about. Even if you search non-religious sources, for instance Reiki master sources, they will tell you it is just like "spiritism" because it taps into spirits the Reiki guides to simulate the healing process ( feeling better)

    For more information please refer to the following links:

  8. My Dear Friends.........People who are not practising reiki are also living happily in this world....have strong faith in ALLAH and you would need nothing as he is the Lord of the worlds.....if you have any problems just pray to ALLAH with strong faith in him and the problem will be solved and if not then it is indeed in your benefit...there is nothing powerful than ALLAH and he had made all of us....so try to avoid...rest is upto our beliefs.

  9. A'salam Alikyum,

    There many things,like taking Chemical (medicinal )drugs U call it also as HARAM, u never know how it has been made in Lab. Mixing soo many chamicals made from various origin.

    1. Listen Syed you cant mix Chemicals with Allah names its not abt drug or chemicals its abt calling devlish power for help other than Allah .We muslim no matter in wht situation even wen abt to die cant ever be permited to do Shirk and take help from Buddhist gods devils otherwise whats the difference bw those go to magicians and us

      So kindly dont mix chemicals drugs with it .
      Allah wont ever forgive those who does shirk until unless He give Hidaith otherwise only hell is his or her fate and u wont be muslim anymore like magician they call devils for their help they also dont harm any1 according to work

  12. I am a Certified REKKI Healer from Karachi, Pakistan.
    After learning REKKI, I had the feeling that the Symbol & Code conveyed to me maybe Un-Islamic (KUFRIA-KALIMAT).
    So, I altered the Symbol to the word "ALLAH" and the code to "LA E'LAHA IL'ALLAH", and with Zikr-Allah during the REKKI session.
    Alhamdulillah, I have found Astonishing results after this change.
    In my view, as long as we don't use their Original Symbols & Code (doubted to be Un-Islamic), and practice with the name of ALLAH and Zikr-Allah, REKKI in Islamic way is perfectly HALAL and worth practicing.

    Syed Khursheed Ali.

  13. LET ME SHARE MY ISTIKHARA WITH YOU ALL ITS MY DUTY TO PUT HERE WHATEVER I SAW

    BUT LET ME CLEAR YOU ALL
    Rekhi is Totally Haram And its Totally Shirk I wonder those who are saying its Halal cant see whom they are calling instead what they get after calling .I mean come on those symbols are clearly showing tht you are calling devlish energies Budha gods .

    I also took 3 levels but in the Level 1 after hearing introduction only any muslim can understand we are going out of Islam .Even on tht point wen tht buddhist Usui on hill seated called those names and energies came bla bla .In this world there are 2 types of energies and two types of ppl who call these energies.Firstly Angel Noori Buzurg which only come wen Saints do aNoorani chilla and other Is Devlish Energies which come wen non muslim call them or magicians. Obviously wen tht buddhist called those symbols in other words name of their buddha or code name ,what u ppl think Allah will send Angels for that buddhist ,No only devlish energies will come upon calling their symbols in other words their name .So its totally Haram to take help from Devil gods other than Allah .yes one more thing When they said in level 3 for distant Reikhi u have to do chilla in other word at same place same time Listen U all muslims There again chilla for two types of energies in this world .
    Noori Energy
    Devilish Energies

    No other type of energy is invented in this world.so at tht point you muslims should be 100 percent sure Allah has blessed us with braon hereafter Allah wont listen us whether tht energy benefited u or not He will only ask U why U did Shirk Y U followed aBuddhist Religious gods symbols.For Shirk we will be out of the circle of Islam wont be muslim anymore this is wht Quran says we cant blindly follow anything even its clear infront of us.

    Coming to my Istikhara :When I reached home My heart was not satisfied with those buddhist god symbol I was 100per sure they are making us to do shirk. I also did Istikhara ,I swear upon Quran whatever I saw I must let you know all as a muslim its my duty to spread that message .My nayeat was whether its shirk and what are those symvols

    I SAW VERY EXTREME Reddish sky like Lava color and and Reddish lava stones are falling like Allah Angerness and punishment if I follow those and Earth was also of red lava color Moreover I saw upon calling cho ko re A buddha devil comes .

    After tht I threw all those books and candles which I received from istitute.

    Whatever I received msg I placed here.irs totally shirk even if u read introduction and till level 3 they are misguiding muslims.Please use your brain if u will do Shirk Allah will leave U and if Allah leave U ,then u will be totally in the hands of devil .Devils become happy and they will serve u whtever U demand so tht u wont contant Allah Subhana wa talla.

    May Allah Guide and Save U fron Shirk in the form of anything
