    :)Hi I'm a muslim, two years ago I came to hear about reiki. I just knew that it was something right for me and I took the Level 1 attunement and a year ago, the level 2. I feel really at peace being able to help myself and others with the Divine's love. I have experience so much positive things in my life from my reiki experiece and i appreciate life and Allah's blessings so much more. The thing is I live in a country where people of different religions live peacefully side by side. Yet reiki is not something that is openly discussed among muslims. I would like to have your views on reiki and islam please. Love n light. Shein

    Hi Shein,

    I'm afraid I know nothing much about Islam, but I'm glad you are getting the benefits of being attuned to Reiki.

    Why not pop along the the New Members forum and introduce yourself over there.

    I will be interested to read peoples views on this subject because, as you say, it's not something you hear a lot of muslims talk about.

    Love and Reiki Hugs

    RE: islam and reiki

    Hello Shein,

    I don't see how Reike practice or attunement can compromise Islam. In fact, as with Christianity, I believe that one would compliment the other. If Reike brings higher levels of attunement and if you can reach that state of 'being' that Islam should be about, then there's no harm in it.

    Go with what you feel best.

    Love,
    Patsy.

    RE: islam and reiki

    You are right patsy, and in fact reiki is very much a part of what islam and the teaching s are about.

    islam is all for learning and developement, we are encouraged to learn and push ourselves, both spiritually, mentally and physically.

    healing and learning about cure, health etc and healing is important and we are encouraged to do as much as we can for our own benefit and the benefit of our society and mankind as a whole.

    DR Kabbani is interesting..worth looking up on the internet for his writings on these matters and how they also relate to islam.

    we all know that honey has healing properties!

    but over all the suggestions made throughout the Qu'ran is that health and healing must be sought on spiritual, emotional and physical levels..all are mentioned,

    Salaam Bushra,

    Nice to meet you...I hope you will enjoy your reiki..I am sure you will and you will find it compliments your spirituality and your islam in such wonderful ways.

    I tell you a little secrt of mine...this has come about after learning symbols, various enregy systems etc and the use of simple intent of the mind to chanel reiki.

    Some people may make some affirmations prior to healing..so do I but I mention Allah and ask for his assistance in the healing...the first time I did that i was blown away! Incredible result and experience...

    Hal

    RE: islam and reiki

    Hi,

    I know it was a long time since this topic was first posted, but I have really enjoyed reading all the positive comments. I believe that Reiki, and indeed the channelling of any healing energy is the act of taking God's light and love and shining that upon the Earth. I am glad that there are people who see Reiki as compatible with their religion, and are happy to integrate the two:D

    I agree with Hal that doing Japa (repeating the sound/name of God) while healing can have a profound effect!

    RE: islam and reiki

    Yes positive energy breeds even more, long may it continue, while i am not affiliatted to any relegion, it is pleasing to see that Reiki is enjoyed by your faith and can transcend everything, the Universere is a wonderful place and to be able to channell such an energy is a blessing.

    May we all have open hearts and open minds for all time.

    Love and light.

    RE: islam and reiki

    Hi Hal,

    Thanks for your post on Reiki in Islam.

    I recently became attuned to the first level of Reiki and in my heart knew it was not against Islam. However, I randomly decided to look on the web to see the opinions and was very upset to see the first site I visited was a site where a scholar condemned reiki! Not only did the scholar condemn it, he basically claimed that you have to follow Buddha and must practice yoga on a daily basis. Not that there is anything wrong with yoga, but it was a false statement made altogether. I am so saddened that we have scholars with limited knowledge. So far that is the only site I saw with such a claim and condemning reiki, but will continue to search. All in all, I feel like I have found my calling in Reiki and would like to continue...
    I want to thank you for your sites that you posted, because that helped me confirm my thoughts on reiki.

    May Allah guide me and all of us in the right direction.

    g

    RE: islam and reiki

    Hi there,
    I know that this thread is a bit old but it came up when I was searching about Islam and Reiki. I am a muslim and have just finished the Reiki Level 2 and found it a really amazing experience. However, a few things are bothering me. The drawing of the symbols and the incantation make me feel that I might be doing something not permissible in Islam even though I start by asking Allah to help the healing.

    I would like to know whether muslims who are practising Reiki regularly also feel the same way and whether they use the symbols and do the incantation and drawing on the body, etc.

    Many thanks,
    Nasreen

    RE: islam and reiki

    Hi Everyone,[/align]I learned Reiki in 2001. I was a Christian at the time. I was told it was of the devil & that demons were behind the energy being given. At that time I just practiced Reiki on myself to keep my energy balanced. In 2003 I took Shahada & became Muslim. I was not sure if Reiki was ok to do in Islam so I stopped practicing Reiki. Well in 2005 Hurricane Katrina ravaged our home & we lost mostly everything. Since then I have felt so out of balance. When I try to practice Reiki now I don't feel anything coming through. I know I need an attunement badly. [/align]My question is this: Are the Reiki symbols from Buddism? I hear that it can lead to polytheism. I guess that might be if you ask spirit guides to help channel the Reiki..... How do Muslims practice Reiki? How can I explain to my husband about Reiki, he thinks its Haram. I don't want to do the wrong thing.... but Ifeel I desperately need the healing energy of Reiki. I have done some web searches & found that there are some imams saying not to do Reiki & others say its ok. I am confused about this. I would appreciate input on this subject.[/align][/align]Thanks[/align]Amina :)[/align]

    RE: islam and reiki

    Have just found this thread and I find it very interesting. I was brought up as a Roman catholic in rural Ireland where Reiki would have been seen as witchcraft. I am also a Reiki master of a number of Reiki styles, including other non-Reiki systems. I am currently studying the history of Islam because of all the current issues in the world andI find it fascinating that both religions, Catholicism and Islam, have very similar beliefs. I have a couple of reiki students who were raised in the Islmic traditions and I find that their issues are virtually the same as mine! The original intentions of both Christ and Mohammed was love. Neither of them intended that their messages would be used to make people afraid of spiritual power. The original teachings included spiritual healing, in both religions, therefore any rules against its use have been made subsequently, by self appointed leaders and rulemakers. These energies are brought through for the benefit of all of humanity and any religious rules that forbid them is not acting in love and in the true spirit of what was intended. Christ and Mohammed came to Earth to change things and we just don't get it! We continue to try and control it, it feeds our egos. God/Allah has given us a gift of Divine love and part of the healing journey is to become free of dogma and to realise that we are free to choose while still retaining hte best part of their sacred messages.
    As an ex-Catholic I struggled for years with 'doing what God wanted me to do' only to find that, if I trust my soul to be part of that energy, then I would always know what is right.
    Anyone, from any religion, who frees their thinking to the level of the soul is to be commended. All religions have benefits if we use them the right way, with our hearts.[sm=idea.gif]

    RE: islam and reiki

    Hi,
    I subscribe to no particular faith... but I have faith.
    My personal belief system isn't important with regard to this thread but the question of the thread is and also the mentioning of both the symbols and whether it contradicts somebody's faith directly if they are a dedicated adherent.

    I found I was channelling healing with my hands long before I was introduced to Reiki. However, I wasn't aware of how to control it or manage it in any 'real' way; I only knew when it was 'switched on' so to speak by certain sensations that were identical each time it started.
    Through meeting other people I was finally introduced to Reiki and other similar healing methodologies and began to learn how to manage it.
    It is clear to me that almost every major religion throughout the globe advocates or has examples of this type of 'healing' – so I see no contradiction between 'hands-on (or off) healing' and any faith that I can think of.

    But I admit that even as a Reiki master the symbols bothered me quite a bit and I could never put my finger on exactly why.
    I feel that they helped me focus on what I was doing but that they in and of themselves are not required, they are after-all Japanese symbols utilised to focus a channelled Tibetan art to be initially taught to Japanese students.
    If the symbols were the important and indispensable 'logos' that some Reiki practitioners vehemently assert that they are… then surely they would be Tibetan symbols?
    So, I have dispensed with the symbols, Reiki and others like it have helped me to make my ability to channel healing energy much better than before, however… we all are capable of, and probably supposed to give this to each other, else why would we have it in the first place.
    Ergo, my personal belief is that it is not solely the preserve of the 'Reiki world' but has existed through all peoples, faiths and histories and so, belongs to us all.

    The symbols are to help us focus on the job at hand, and I agree with the poster who mentioned using mantras, whole heartedly agree with Hal and Azalia regarding doing Japa while healing and also agree with all points made by both Azalia and Hal; and much of what has been said by others.

    To me,if energy is the same, it comes from but one source… so why should you not access it thru your own religious and spiritual doorways… and if you do, how in all the universe can it be wrong to do so?
    Otherwise, any mother who upon learning her child has hurt itself and so automatically releases the heartfelt wish/thought/prayer that her child heals quick or remains unharmed… must be teetering on the boundaries :)

    RE: islam and reiki

    Hi,

    I am new to this Forum today, so just finding my way around the site and this was the first post that grabbed my attention.

    I lived in Egypt for a number of years where I taught Reiki to muslims on a regular basis. There was never a conflict between what I was teaching and Islam though one or two hard-liners were not entirely comfortable with the concept of Reiki - the fact that it did not come out of Islam was the problem I think.

    I still go back to Egypt from time to time to teach classes and they are always very well recieved. The benefit for me is all the times that I have to stop during the class for the participants to do their prayers! Which of course just adds to the flow of energy at the class enormously!

    For those that might be interested, they should look up the word 'baraka' to get an idea of the Islamic concept of what we in the West call Reiki or the Holy Spirit or the energy of God. I have a leaflet on this that I sometimes give to Islamic students when I feel that there might be a need for an Islamic perspective on the subject...

    Hope that helps,

    Steve
