Ladies drinking from Shaykh’s blown water

Fatwaa ID: 827

Assalamu alaykum.
May I ask if a Shaykh blows muawiddhatain or any tilawah for barakah on a ZamZam or any water, can the ladies in the Household drink that since the ladies are non mahram to the Shaykh? Please kindly shed some light on this.
JazakAllahu Khayran

In the Name of Allaah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
As-salaamu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullaahi wa-barakaatuh.

It is permissible to drink water that was blown on by a non-mahram for whatever reason, including ruqyah and barakah. However, if there is a genuine realistic fear of fitnah, then it should be avoided.

And Allaah Ta’aala knows best.
