Q.Is Reiki, an energy therapy, permissible in Islam?

A. According to our research the practice of Reiki contravene some basic Islamic principles and must be abstained from.

For e.g. the website reads "there are higher sources of help you can call on. Angels, beings of light, and reiki spirit guides as well as your own enlightened self are available to help you."

And Allah Ta'ala Knows Best
