4. Supplication of the Imam of the time for cure

Whenever His Eminence, Mahdi (a.s) was indisposed he used to write the following supplication on a new utensil with the clay (Turbah) of the grave of Imam Husain (a.s) and wash it with water and drink it:

‘In the name of Allah’ is a medicine

bismillahi dawa’un

بِسْمِ اللهِ دَوَاءٌ

and ‘Praise be to Allah’ is a cure,

walhamdu lillahi shifa’un

وَالْحَمْدُ للهِ شِفَاءٌ

and ‘There is no god but Allah’, is a protector,

wa la ilaha illa allahu kifa’un

وَلاَ إلَهَ إلاَّ اللهُ كِفَاءٌ

‘He is the giver of cure’ is the remedy

huwa alshshafi shifa’un

هُوَ الشَّافِي شِفَاءٌ

And ‘He is the savior’ is sufficient

wa huwa alkafi kifa’an

وَهُوَ الْكَافِي كِفَاءً

Take away the hardship by the Lord of men; this is the remedy

adhhib alba’sa birabbi alnnasi shifa’an

أذْهِبِ الْبَأْسَ بِرَبِّ النَّاسِ شِفَاءً

no ailment will be left

la yughadiruhu saqamun

لاَ يُغَادِرُهُ سَقَمٌ

and may Allah bless Muhammad and his Household, the Elite.[1]

wa salla allahu `ala muhammadin wa alihi alnnujaba’i

وَصَلَّى اللهُ عَلَى مُحَمَّدٍ وَآلِهِ النُّجَبَاءِ
