On 9 Sha’baan 1441 (3 April 2020) The Majlis published an article which implied that Mufti Ebrahim Desai had sanctioned Aafiyah Healing which is Haraam. Mufti Ebrahim has unequivocally denied having halaalized this haraam thereby called Aafiyah Healing. 

The following are the comments of Mufti Ebrahim Desai, which clarify his stance on this issue: 

“The concept of AHT (Alternate Healing Therapy) is a relatively new concept. I have heard that it has components of Kufr in it. I decided to study it in detail and I have spent a year on it. There are some AHTs that are extremely dangerous and risk the Ieman of an individual. I have vigorously opposed the Zuhuri concept last year and condemned it to a point that all the people practicing on it are not seen anymore, Alhamdulillah. 

Muhtaram Moulana is correct. Our people are gullible. When they face challenges in life, they would resort to anyone even at the risk of their Ieman. No fatwa matters to them at that point. They are in a state of desperation. 

There are many types of AHT and are practised by Muslims and non Muslims. Some are dangerous and risk the Ieman of an individual.”

(End of Mufti Ebrahim’s comment)


Mufti Ebrahim Desai has clarified adequately that he did not sanction Aafiyah Healing. Aafiyah Healing with other similar dubious forms of therapies are HARAAM.
