Supplication for Deliverance from Every Pain and Disease

Khalid al-Absiyy said: ‘Ali ibn Moosa (a.s.) taught me this invocation and said:

“Teach it to your brothers among the believers, for it is for every ache:

اُعِيْذُ نَفْسِيْ بِرَبِّ الْاَرْضِ وَ رَبِّ السَّمَاءِ اُعِيْذُ نَفْسِيْ بِالَّذِيْ لَا يَضُرُّ مَعَ اسْمِهٖ دَاءٌ اُعِيْذُ نَفْسِيْ بِالَّذِيْ اسْمُهٗ بَرَكَةٌ وَ شِفَاءٌ.

o-e’ezo nafsee be-rabbil arze wa rabbis samaaa-e o-e’ezo nafsee bil-lazee laa yazurro ma-a’s mehi daa-un o-e’ezo nafsee bil-lazis mohu baraktun wa shefaaun.

I seek protection for myself in the Lord of the earth and the Lord of the heavens. I seek protection for myself in Him with Whose Name no disease causes harm. I seek protection for myself in Him Whose Name is a blessing and a healing.[1]

(4) Another Invocation for Deliverance from Each Pain and Disease

Zakariyya ibn Adam, who used to serve Imam Reza (a.s.) in Khorasan, said: ‘One day Imam Reza (a.s.) said to me:

“O Zakariya.”

I answered: “At your service, O son of the Messenger of Allah.” He (a.s.) said:

“Recite for all illnesses:

يَا مُنْزِلَ الشِّفَاءِ وَ مُذْهِبَ الدَّاءِ اَنْزِلْ عَلٰى وَجَعِيَ الشِّفَاءِ.

yaa munzelash shefaaa-e wa muzhebad daa-e anzil a’laa waja-e’yash shefaa-e.

O Bestower of healing and Remover of illness, send down healing for my ailment.’[2]

You will be restored to health, Allah, the Mighty and Sublime, willing.”

(5) Supplication for Relief from Eye Corrosion

Moa’mmar Ibn Khallaad narrates:

‘I was with Imam Reza (a.s.) and was made responsible for household purchases while he (a.s.) ordered me to bring Ghaaleyah (a kind of perfume). When I purchased it and presented it to Imam Reza (a.s.), he liked it very much and said to me:

‘O Moa’mmar! No doubt as winking of eyelashes is certain, write Surah-e-Hamd, Surah Ahad, Surah Naas, Surah Falaq and Aayatul Kursee on a piece of paper and keep it in a pot. (To get relief from Eye Corrosion).[3]

(6) Supplication for Waiving Out Magic and Sorcery

Muhammad Ibn Eesaa reports: ‘I asked Imam Reza (a.s.) about magic and sorcery. He (a.s.) said:

“Such a thing does exist and it is harmful also, whenever you come in contact with such a thing then by the Will of Almighty Allah raise your hands before your face and recite this dua:

بِسْمِ اللهِ الْعَظِيْمِ بِسْمِ اللهِ الْعَظِيْمِ رَبِّ الْعَرْشِ الْعَظِیْمِ اِلَّا ذَہَبْتَ وَ انْقَرَضْتَ.

bismil laahil a’zeeme bismil laahil a’zeeme rabbil a’rshil a’zeeme illaa zahab-ta wan qarazta.

In the name of Allah, the Great, in the name of Allah, the Great, Lord of the Mighty Throne, but that it left and perished.[4]

(7) Supplication for Cure from Fever

It has been narrated from Imam Reza (a.s.) that in order to get relief from fever, write this dua in the manner given hereunder and keep it with the ailing person:[5]

In the name of the Beneficent. We said: O fire! Be a comfort and peace to Ibrahim and the progeny of Ibrahim. And blessing upon Muhammad and the progeny of Muhammad, and upon so-and-so son of so-and-so by the permission of Allah.
