Wow, that’s a lot of money. I guesstimate that his fuel costs would’ve been between £35-45 round trip, and with the tons of oil, and figs he provided, the cost shouldn’t go above more than £100 max. Then if he charged £100 for doing the ruqyah that’s obviously still nowhere near what he charged. I can understand why your dad is so angry.
The good news is that you can do ruqyah yourself sis. Rakis have no power of their own. Healing is from Allah alone. Any good raki will tell you this before starting ruqyah. You said he told you surahs to recite. That’s what you have to do to perform ruqyah on yourself. You can buy your own figs and olive oil. There is no need to call the raki again. In fact, this is better for you since the Prophet (salallahu alayhi wa sallam) told us that 70,000 people will enter Jannah without any reckoning, and they are the ones who did not seek ruqyah.
Al-Bukhaari (6472) and Muslim (220) narrated from Ibn ‘Abbaas (may Allah be pleased with him) that the Messenger of Allah (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) said: “Seventy thousand of my ummah will enter Paradise without being brought to account; they are the ones who did not ask for ruqyah or believe in omens or use cautery and they put their trust in their Lord.” These people will enter Paradise without being brought to account because of the perfection of their Tawheed, their complete trust in Allah and their independence from people.
The one who asks for ruqyah from others is not included in that seventy thousand who will enter Paradise without being brought to account, due to the shortfall in their trust in Allah, because asking for ruqyah involves a kind of humiliation and need of the raaqi (the one who performs ruqyah), and part of complete trust and Tawheed is that the Muslim should not ask people for anything.
Muslim narrated (1043) that ‘Awf ibn Maalik al-Ashja‘i (may Allah be pleased with him) said: We were with the Messenger of Allaah (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him), nine or eight or seven (people) and he said: “Will you not swear allegiance to the Messenger of Allaah (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him)?” We had only recently sworn our allegiance, so we said: We have sworn our allegiance to you, O Messenger of Allaah. He said: “Will you not swear allegiance to the Messenger of Allaah (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him)?’ We said: We have already sworn our allegiance to you, O Messenger of Allaah. Then he said: “Will you not swear allegiance to the Messenger of Allaah (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him)?” We held out our hands and said: We swear our allegiance to you, O Messenger of Allaah. Tell us on what basis we should swear allegiance to you? He said: “On the basis that you will worship Allaah and not associate anything with Him, and (you will perform) the five daily prayers, and you will obey Allaah – and he whispered – and you will not ask the people for anything.” I saw that some of those people, if they dropped a whip, they would not ask anyone to hand it to them.
Ibn Al-Qayyim (may Allah have mercy on him) said:
That is because these people will enter Paradise without being called to account because of the perfection of their Tawheed, therefore he described them as people who did not ask others to perform ruqyah for them. Hence he said “and they put their trust in their Lord.” Because of their complete trust in their Lord, their contentment with Him, their faith in Him, their being pleased with Him and their seeking their needs from Him, they do not ask people for anything, be it ruqyah or anything else, and they are not influenced by omens and superstitions that could prevent them from doing what they want to do, because superstition detracts from and weakens Tawheed.

This is better for you ukhti. You have to be persistent in it and keep it up until Allah cures you. May Allah, Al Basit (The reliever) hasten in removing this evil from you soon. Ameen
