Alone with her and doing ruqyah

Reference: Fataawa Noor ‘alad-Darb – Question No.5840, Page 266, Volume 11

Question: Is it permissible [for a man] to be alone with a woman whilst he is doing ruqyah on her?

Response: It is not permissible [for a man] to be alone with a woman whilst he is doing ruqyah on her. That is because the Prophet (sal-Allaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said:

«No man should be alone with a woman unless there is a mahram with them»

So it is imperative that she has her mahram with her whilst ruqyah is being done on her.
