Other false accusations

From what I know, Brother Khan and Hilali go back to tafsir of Quran and explanations of hadith before translating.Originally Posted by G.F. Haddad
When I read this I went back to the explanation of the hadith in Fath al-Bari and Sharh Imam an-Nawawi rahimahu Allah, and I found that there are different opinions, one opinion is doing ta'weel and saying that the ruqya in this hadith means the jahilia ruqya which is haram and shirk.
And the other opinion is taking it literally (and that is opinion of Ibn Hajar and others) that it means the sunna ruqya, and the hadith means that these people who will neither have any reckoning of their accounts nor will receive any punishment, did not ask others to do ruqya on them "yastarqun", which is considered complete tawakkul on Allah. Because when one asks others to do ruqya on him he is asking for their benefit, and that is not complete tawakkul. So these people have a distinctive feature\trait than others of this ummah which is their complete tawakkul on Allah.
The hadith does not indicate that ruqya with Quran and permissable du'a is haram, but it is talking about complete tawakkul on Allah without asking the help of others, like I explained above.
This is basically what I read in the explanations of the hadith...
Note: I did not translation word for word, it is a summerized explanation, because the explanation is quite lengthy.
You can go back to the Arabic and check it yourselves, and if you want me to bring you the Arabic text, I don't mind.
