Ruqyah by phone

Dear Brothers & Sisters,
As-Salaamu-Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
What is the ruling on reciting Qur’aan when doing ruqyah, via a loudspeaker or over the phone when one is far away?

Praise be to Allaah.

Ruqyah for the sick must be done directly, not via a loudspeaker or over the phone, because this is contrary to the way the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him), his companions (may Allaah be pleased with them) and those who followed them in truth did ruqyah.  The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “Whoever innovates something in this matter of ours (i.e., Islam) that is not a part of it, will have it rejected.”

And Allaah knows best.

[Translator’s note: ruqyah i.e., reciting Qur’aan and du’aa’s over the sick for the purpose of seeking healing]
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah's Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
