Taveez, Dum, Shrines
I would like some knowledge on the practice of people going to Pirs, Shrines, to get Taweez for their sick family members. We all know duas from the Qur’an are very important. But what disturbs me when mentally sick people are taken to shrines instead of doctors, where the head of the shrine can beat and torture him to remove the so called evil spirits which have got into him. I saw a video of a clearly mentally disturbed woman tied in chains at a shrine crying desperately There is very limited psychiatric help available for the poor. Where a dum is done on a disturbed person. Pieces of Qur’an ayats are put in water and drunk by people to solve their issues. Reading Surah Rahman is excellent but will it cure a disease? The Qur’an is a book of guidance, to be read and practiced. The above practices are very prevalent in our part of the world.
I’m very ignorant so please can some one guide me from the Qur’an and Sunnah regarding the above. JazakAllah
