Supplication of the Hujjat[1] for curing of ills

Shaykh Ibrahim Kafami has narrated in Al Baladul Amin from al-Mahdi (a.s.): One who writes this supplication on a new vessel by the soil of the grave of Husain (a.s.) and bathes with it and drinks it, would be cured from his malady.[2]

بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمٰنِ الرَّحِيْمِ، بِسْمِ اللهِ دَوَاءٍ، وَ الْحَمْدُ ِللهِ شَفَآءٍ، وَ لاَ اِلٰهَ إِلاَّ اللهُ كَفَآءٍ، هُوَ الشَّافِىْ شَفَآءٍ، وَ هُوَ الْكَافِىْ كَفَآءٍ، اَذْهِبْ اِلْيَأْسَ بِرَبِّ النَّاسِ، شَفَآءً لاَ يُغَادِرُهُ سَقَمٍ، وَ صَلَّی اللهُ عَلٰی مُحَمَّدٍ وَ آلِهِ النُّجَبَاءِ.

Bismillaahir rah’maanir rah’eem. Bismillaahi dawaa-inw wal h’amdu lillaahi shafaa-in wa laa ilaaha illallaahu kafaa. Huwash shaafee shafaa-a. Laa yughaadiruhu saqaminw, wa s’allallaahu a’laa muh’ammadinw wa aalihin nujabaa.

In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, “In the name of Allah” is a medicine and “Praise be to Allah” is a cure, and “There is no god but Allah”, is a protector, “He is the giver of cure” is the remedy. And “He is the savior” is sufficient. Take away despair by the Lord of men. Cure is there. No malady would remain by it. And may Allah bless Muhammad and his progeny, the noble ones.

I found in the writing of As-Sayyid Zainuddin bin Ali bin Al-Husain (r.a.) that it is a supplication taught by a man who was a caretaker of the Kerbala shrine (from) Al-Mahdi, peace of Allah be upon him in his dream while he was ill. So he complained about it to al-Qaem, may Allah hasten his reappearance. He ordered him to write it and bathe with it and drink it. So he did that and he was cured of his conditions.

On Headaches

Muhammad bin Ismail narrated from Muhammad bin Khalid from Yaqub al-Zayyat from Muawiyah from Ammar al-Duhni, who said: I complained to Abu Abdillah (a.s.), of that (headache) and he said: When you complete your obligatory prayer, place your index finger on your eyes and say seven times while passing your finger over the right eyebrow:

يَا حَنَّانُ اِشْفِنِىْ

Yaa h’annaanushfinee

O Compassionate, heal me.

Then pass it seven times over your left eyebrow and say:

يَا مَنَّانُ اِشْفِنِىْ

Yaa mannaanushfinee

O Bountiful, heal me.

Then place your right palm on your head and say:

يَا مَنْ سَكَنَ لَهُ مَا فِىْ السَّمٰوَاتِ وَ مَا (هُوَ) فِىْ اْلاَرْضِ صَلِّ عَلٰی مُحَمَّدٍ وَ اٰلِهِ وَ سَكِّنْ مَا بِىْ

Yaa man sakana lahu maa fis samaawaati wa maa (huwa) fil arz”i s’alli a’laa muh’ammadinw wa aalihi wa sakkin maa bee.

O He in Whose trust is what is in the heavens and what is in the earth, bless Muhammad and his family and stop what is in me.

Then rise for the supererogatory prayer.[3]

Cure for Headache

A man complained to al-Imam as-Sadiq (a.s.) about the headache. He said: Keep your hand on the place, which is aching, and recite Ayatul Kursi and Surah al-Hamd. Then say:

اَللهُ اَكْبَرُ اَللهُ اَكْبَرُ لاَ اِلٰهَ إِلاَّ اللهُ وَ اللهُ اَكْبَرُ اَجَلُّ وَ اَكْبَرُ مِمَّا اَخَافُ وَ اَحْذَرُ اَعُوْذُ بِاللهِ مِنْ عَرْقٍ نَعَّارِ وَ اَعُوْذُ بِاللهِ مِنْ حَرِّ النَّارِ.

Allaahu akbaru allaahu akbaru laa ilaaha illallaahu wallaahu akbaru ajallu wakbaru mimmaa akhaafu wa ah’dharu ao’o’dhubillaahi min a’rqin na’-a’a’ri wa ao’o’dhubillaahi min h’arrin naar.

Allah is the greatest. Allah is the greatest. There is no god except Allah and Allah is the greatest; more majestic and greater than what I fear and I dread. I seek the refuge of Allah from the throbbing of the vein and I seek refuge of Allah from the heat of the fire.[4]

For pain in the head

It is mentioned in Misbah of Kafami from al-Imam al-Baqir (a.s.): Keep your hand on the pain and say seven times:

اَعُوْذُ بِاللهِ الَّذِىْ سَكَنَ لَهُ مَا فِىْ الْبَرِّ وَ الْبَحْرِ وَ مَا فِىْ السَّمٰوَاتِ وَ مَا فِىْ اْلاَرْضِ وَ هُوَ السَّمِيْعُ الْعَلِيْمُ.

Ao’o’dhubillahil ladhee sakana lahu maa fil barri wal bah’ri wa maa fis samaawaati wa maa fil arz”i wa huwas sameeu’l a’leem.

I seek refuge of Allah, the One for Whom belongs whatever dwells in the lands and the sea and in the heavens and in the earth and He is the Hearing, the knowing.

Recite the same for pain in the ear and it will be cured, if Allah wills.

From Imam Askari (a.s.) it is mentioned that for headache recite on a tumbler of water:

أَوَلَمْ يَرَ الَّذِيْنَ كَفَرُوْا أَنَّ السَّمَاوَاتِ وَ اْلأَرْضَ كَانَتَا رَتْقًا فَفَتَقْنَاهُمَا وَ جَعَلْنَا مِنَ الْمَآءِ كُلَّ شَيْءٍ حَيٍّ أَفَلاَ يُؤْمِنُوْنَ.

awalam yaral ladheena kafaroo annas samawaati wal arz’’a kaanataa ratqan fafataqnaahuma wa ja’alna maaai kulla shayyin h’ayyin afalaa yuminoon.

Do not those who disbelieve see that the heavens and the earth were closed up, but We have opened them; and We have made of water everything living, will they not then believe?[5]

Then drink the water.[6]

Another remedy for headache

Umar bin Hanzala has narrated: I complained to Abi Ja’far (a.s.) about the headache that afflicted me. He said: When you have it, keep your hand on that part which pains and say:

لَوْ كَانَ مَعَهُ آلِهَةٌ كَمَا يَقُوْلُوْنَ إِذًا لاَّبْتَغَوْا إِلٰى ذِي الْعَرْشِ سَبِيْلاً وَ إِذَا قِيْلَ لَهُمْ تَعَالَوْا إِلٰى مَا أَنْزَلَ اللهُ وَ إِلَى الرَّسُولِ رَأَيْتَ الْمُنَافِقِيْنَ يَصُدُّوْنَ عَنْكَ صُدُوْدًا.

Lau kaana ma-a’hu aalihatum mimmaa yaqooloona idhal labtaghau ilaa dhil a’rshi sabeelanw wa idhaa qeela lahum taa’a’lau ilaa maa anzalallaahu wa ilar rasooli ra-aital munaafiqeena yas’uddoona a’nka s’udoodaa.

If there were with Him gods as they say, then certainly they would have been able to seek a way to the Lord of power. And when it is said to them: come to what Allah has revealed and to the Apostle, you will see the hypocrites turning away from you with (utter) aversion.[7]

Migraine

This pain is limited to half the head and by way of its spread, it spreads to the length of the head from end to end. In Misbah of Kafami it is narrated from al-Baqir (a.s.): Keep your hand on the side of the head that is in pain and say three times:

يَا ظَاهِرًا مَوْجُوْدًا وَ يَا بَاطِنًا غَيْرَ مَفْقُوْدٍ اَرْدِدْ عَلٰی عَبْدِكَ الضَّعِيْفِ اَيَادِيْكَ الْجَمِيْلَةِ عِندَهُ و اذْهِبْ عَنْهُ مَا بِهِ مِنْ اَذَی إنَّهُ رَحِيْمٌ قَدِيْرٌ.

Yaa z’aahiram maujoodanw wa yaa baat’inan ghaira mafqoodin ardid a’laa abdikaz” z”ae’e’fi ayaadikal jameelati i’ndahu wadh-hib a’nhu maa bihi min adhaa innahu rah’eemun qadeer.

O apparent and present and O the hidden which does not disappear. Bestow upon Your weak servant Your beautiful rewards and remove from him that with which he is afflicted. Indeed, He is Merciful, the Powerful.[8]

Headache and other Pains

اَقْسَمْتُ عَلَيْكَ اَيَّتُهَا الْعِلَّةُ بِعِزَّةِ اللهِ، وَ عَظَمَةِ اللهِ وَ بِجَلاَلِ اللهِ، و بِقُدْرَةِ قُدْرَةِ اللهِ، وَ بِسُلْطَانِ سُلْطَانِ اللهِ، وَ بِلاَ اِلٰهَ إِلاَّ اللهُ وَ بِمَا جَرٰی بِهِ الْقَلَمُ مِنْ عِنْدِ اللهِ، وَ بِلاَ حَوْلَ وَ لاَ قُوَّةَ إِلاَّ بِاللهِ إِلاَّ انْصَرَفْتِ.

Aqsamtu a’laika ayyatuhal i’llatu bi-i’zzatillaahi wa a’z’amatillaahi wa bijalaalillaahi wa biqudrati qudratillaahi wa bisult’aani sult’aanillaah. Wa bilaa ilaaha illallaahu wa bimaa jaraa qalamu min i’ndillaahi wa bilaa h’aula wa laa quwwata illaa billaahi illaa ans’araft.

I put you under oath, O malady by the power of Allah and the greatness of Allah and the majesty of Allah. And by the power, which is the power of Allah, and by the capability that is the capability of Allah. And by there is no god except Allah and by that, which is written by the Pen by Allah and by there is no power and strength except by Allah, but that you begone.[9]

Headache and Pains

It is narrated from Abi Abdullah (a.s.) that he said: Write for pain and headache and wear it on the right arm:

In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful. Praise be to Allah, Lord of the worlds…to the end of Surah Hamd. Also Surah Falaq and Surah Naas and Qulhuwallaho Ahad…to the end.

بسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمٰنِ الرَّحِيْمِ، رَبِّ النَّاسِ اَذْهِبِ الْيَاسَ وَ اشْفِهِ يَا شَافِىْ فَإِنَّهُ لاَ شِفَآءَ إِلاَّ شِفَاؤُكَ، شِفَائاً لاَ يُغَادِرُ سَقَمًا، بِيَدِكَ الْخَيْرُ إِنَّكَ عَلٰی كُلِّ شَىْءٍ قَدِيْرٌ، وَ نُنَزِّلُ مِنَ الْقُرْآنِ مَا هُوَ شِفَآءٌ وَ رَحْمَةٌ لِّلْمُؤْمِنِيْنَ بِسْم اللهِ الرَّحْمٰنِ الرَّحِيْمِ قُلْنَا يَا نَارُ كُوْنِيْ بَرْدًا وَ سَلاَمًا عَلٰی إبْرَاهِيْمَ كَذٰلِكَ صَاحِبِ كِتَابِىْ هٰذَا بِرَحْمَتِكَ يَا اَرْحَمَ الرَّاحِمِيْنَ، بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمٰنِ الرَّحِيْمِ وَ لَهُ مَا سَكَنَ فِىْ اللَّيْلِ وَ النَّهَارِ وَ هُوَ السَّمِيْعُ الْعَلِيْمُ اُسْكُنْ اَيُّهَا الصَّدَاعُ وَ اْلاَلَمُ بِعِزَّةِ اللهِ، اُسْكُنْ بِجَلاَلِ اللهِ، اُسْكُنْ بِعَظَمَةِ اللهِ، اُسْكُنْ بِلاَ حَوْلَ وَ لاَ قُوَّةَ إِلاَّ بِاللهِ الْعَلِىِّ الْعَظِيْمِ فَسَيَكْفِيْكَهُمُ اللهُ وَ هُوَ السَّمِيْعُ الْعَلِيْمُ.

Bismillaahir rah’maanir rah’eem. Rabbin naasi adh-hibil yaasa washfihi yaa shaafee fa-innahu laa shifaa-a illaa shafaa-uka shafaa-al laa yughaadiru saqamam biyadikal khairu innaka a’laa kulli shai-in qadeer.

Fasayak feekahumullaahu wahuwas sameeu’l a’leem.

In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful, Lord of men take away the despair and cure him, O giver of cure! For there is no cure except Your cure. A cure after which there is no recurrence of disease. By Your good hand. Indeed You are powerful over everything. And We revealed from the Quran which is a cure and a mercy for the believers. In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful. We said: O fire be cool and safe upon Ibrahim. In the same way the one having this writing, by Your mercy, O the best of the merciful ones. In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful. And to Him belongs whatever dwells in the night and the day and He is the Hearing, the Knowing. Be calm, O headache and pain by the power of Allah. Be calm by the majesty of Allah. Be calm by: There is no power and strength except by Allah, the Exalted and the Mighty. So Allah will suffice you against them, and He is the Hearing, the Knowing.[10]

وَ ذَا النُّوْنِ إِذْ ذَّهَبَ مُغَاضِبًا فَظَنَّ أَنْ لَّنْ نَّقْدِرَ عَلَيْهِ فَنَادٰى فِيْ الظُّلُمَاتِ أَنْ لاَ إِلٰهَ إِلاَّ أَنْتَ سُبْحَانَكَ إِنِّيْ كُنْتُ مِنَ الظَّالِمِيْنَ. فَاسْتَجَبْنَا لَهُ وَ نَجَّيْنَاهُ مِنَ الْغَمِّ وَ كَذٰلِكَ نُنْجِيْ الْمُؤْمِنِيْنَ.

Wa dhannoona idhadh dhahaba mughaaz”iban faz’anna allan naqdira a’laihi fanaada fiz’z’ulumaati allaa ilaaha illaa anta sub-h’aanaka innee kuntu minaz’z’aalimeen. Fastajabna lahu wa najjainaahu minal ghammi wa kadhaalika nunjil mu-mineen.

And Yunus, when he went away in wrath, so he thought that We would not straiten him, so he called out among afflictions: There is no god but Thou, glory be to Thee; surely I am of those who make themselves to suffer loss. So We responded to him and delivered him from the grief and thus do We deliver the believers.[11]

وَ لاَ حَوْلَ وَ لاَ قُوَّةَ إِلاَّ بِاللهِ الْعَلِىِّ الْعَظِيْمِ وَحَسْبُنَا اللهُ وَ نِعْمَ الْوَكِيْلُ وَ صَلَّی اللهُ عَلٰی مُحَمَّدٍ وَ اٰلِهِ الطَّاهِرِيْنَ.

Wa laa h’aula walaa quwwata illaa billaahil a’leeyil a’z’eem. Wa h’asbunallaahu wa ni’mal wakeel. Wa s’allallaahu a’laa muh’ammadinw wa aalihit’ t’aahireen.

And there is no power and strength except by Allah, the Exalted and the Mighty, and Allah is sufficient for us and most excellent is the protector and may Allah bless Muhammad and his purified progeny.[12]

Supplication for Migraine

بسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمٰنِ الرَّحِيْمِ. رَبَّنَا لاَ تُزِغْ قُلُوْبَنَا بَعْدَ إِذْ هَدَيْتَنَا وَ هَبْ لَنَا مِنْ لَّدُنْكَ رَحْمَةً إِنَّكَ أَنْتَ الْوَهَّابُ.

Bismillaahir rah’maanir rah’eem. Rabbanaa laa tuzigh quloobanaa ba’da idh hadaitanaa wa hablanaa milladunka rah’matan innaka antal wahhaab.

In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful. Our Lord! Make not our hearts to deviate after Thou hast guided us aright, and grant us from Thee mercy; surely Thou art the most liberal Giver.[13]

Then if it goes away it is good, otherwise take boiled eggs and crush them finely, then read upon them Qul huwallaaho Ahad (Surah Tawheed) three times and administer it to the patient.

Write for headache

It is mentioned in Ad-Damiri’s Hayatul Haiwan that:

بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمٰنِ الرَّحِيْمِ. كهيعص. ذِكْرُ رَحْمَةِ رَبِّكَ عَبْدَهُ زَكَرِيَّا. إِذْ نَادٰى رَبَّهُ نِدَآءً خَفِيًّا. قَالَ رَبِّ إِنِّيْ وَهَنَ الْعَظْمُ مِنِّي وَ اشْتَعَلَ الرَّأْسُ شَيْبًا وَ لَمْ أَكُنْ بِدُعَائِكَ رَبِّ شَقِيًّا. أَ لَمْ تَرَ إِلَى رَبِّكَ كَيْفَ مَدَّ الظِّلَّ وَ لَوْ شَآءَ لَجَعَلَهُ سَاكِنًا.

“Bismillaahir rah’maanir rah’eem. Kaaf haa yaa a’in s’aad. Dhikru rah’mati rabbika a’bdahu zakareeyaa. Idh naadaa rabbahu nidaa-an khafeeyaa. Qaala rabbi innee wahanal a’z’mu minnee washta-a’lar raa-su shaibanw wa lam akum bidua’a’-ika rabbi shaqeeyaa.” “Alam tara ilaa rabbika kaifa maddaz’ z’illa wa lau shaa-a laja-a’lahu saakinaa.”

“In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful. Kaaf Haa Yaa A’in S’aad. A mention of the mercy of your Lord to His servant Zakaria. When he called upon his Lord in a low voice, He said: My Lord! Surely my bones are weakened and my head flares with hoariness, and, my Lord! I have never been unsuccessful in my prayer to Thee:”[14] “Have you not considered (the work of) your Lord, how He extends the shade? And if He had pleased He would certainly have made it stationary.”[15]

كهيعص حمعسق، كَمْ للهِ مِنْ نِعْمَةٍ عَلٰی عَبْدِ شَاكِرٍ وَ غَيْرِ شَاكِرٍ. وَ كَمْ ِللهِ مِنْ نِعْمَةٍ فِىْ قَلْبِ خَاشِعٍ وَ غَيْرِ خَاشِعٍ. وَ كَمْ مِنْ نِعْمَةٍ ِللهِ فِىْ كُلِّ عِرْقٍ سَاكِنٍ وَ غَيْرِ سَاكِنٍ، اَذْهِبْ اَيُّهَا الصُّدَاعُ بِعِزِّ عِزِّ اللهِ. بِنُوْرِ وَجْهِ اللهِ، وَ لَهُ مَا سَكَنَ فِىْ اللَّيْلِ وَ النَّهَارِ وَ هُوَ السَّمِيْعُ العَلِيْمُ. وَ لاَ حَوْلَ وَ لاَ قُوَّةَ إِلاَّ بِاللهِ الْعَلِىِّ الْعَظِيْمِ وَ صَلَّی اللهُ عَلٰی سَيِّدِنَا مُحَمَّدٍ خَاتَمِ النَّبِيِّيْنَ وَ الْمُرْسلِيْنَ وَ عَلٰی آلِهِ اَجْمَعِيْنَ.

Kaaf haa yaa a’in s’aad h’aa meem a’in seen qaaf. Kam lillaahi min ni’matin a’laa a’bdi shaakirinw wa ghairi shaakir. Wa kam ilallaahi min ni’matin fee qalbi khaashi-i’nw wa ghairi khaashi’. Wa kam min ni’matil lillaahi fee kulli a’rqin saakininw wa ghaira saakin. Adh-hib ayyuhas’ s’udaau’ bi-i’zzi i’zzillaah. Binoori waj-hillaah. Wa lahu maa sakana fil laili nannahaari wa huwas sameeu’l a’leem. Wa laa h’aula walaa quwwata illaa billaahil a’leeyil a’z’eem. Wa s’allallaahu a’laa sayyidinaa muh’ammadin khaatimin nabeeyeena wal mursaleena wa a’laa aalihi ajmae’e’n

Kaaf Haa Yaa A’in S’aad. H’aa Meem A’in Seen Qaaf. How many are the bounties of Allah on the thankful slave and the unthankful. And how many are the bounties on the humble heart and the one not humble. And how many bounties of Allah on the tranquil veins that those that are not tranquil. Go away, O headaches by the power and might of Allah and by the light of the face of Allah. “And to Him belongs what dwells in the night and the day and He is the Hearing, the Knowing.” And there is no power and strength except by Allah, the, High and the Mighty, and may Allah bless our chief, Muhammad, the seal of the prophets and messengers and upon all his progeny.

Write it and wear it on the head, it would be beneficial. It is acknowledged to be amazingly effective.

Another supplication for Headache

It is mentioned in Hayatul Haiwan that when Umar bin Abdul Aziz was having headache he did not participate in the battle, so the Muslims were asked: Where is your commander, why he has not come to the battlefield? They said: He is suffering from headache. So they took out a robe and said: Make him wear it and it will go away. So they dressed him with it and he was cured. Then they tore it apart but could not find anything in it. Then they tore up its buttons and inside was a card on which the following verses were written.

بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمٰنِ الرَّحِيْمِ، ذٰلِكَ تَخْفِيْفٌ مِنْ رَبِّكُمْ وَ رَحْمَةٌ. بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمٰنِ الرَّحِيْمِ، يُرِيْدُ اللهُ أَنْ يُخَفِّفَ عَنْكُمْ وَ خُلِقَ اْلإِنْسَانُ ضَعِيْفًا. بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمٰنِ الرَّحِيْمِ، حمعسق. بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمٰنِ الرَّحِيْمِ.

Bismillaahir rah’maanir rah’eem. Dhaalika takhfeefum minar rabbakum wa rah’mah. Bismillaahir rah’maanir rah’eem. Yureedullaahu ayn yakhfuf a’nkum wa khuliqal insaanu z”ae’e’faa. Bismillaahir rah’maanir rah’eem. H’aa meem a’in seen qaaf. Bismillaahir rah’maanir rah’eem.

In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful. This is an alleviation from your Lord and a mercy. In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful. Allah desires that He should make light your burdens, and man is created weak. In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful. H’aa Meem A’in Seen Qaaf. In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful.

For Headache

A person from Merv complained to Abi Abdullah (a.s.) about headache and he said: Come near me. Then he touched his head and said:

إِنَّ اللهَ يُمْسِكُ السَّمَاوَاتِ وَ اْلأَرْضَ أَنْ تَزُوْلاَ وَ لَئِنْ زَالَتَا إِنْ أَمْسَكَهُمَا مِنْ أَحَدٍ مِّنْ بَعْدِهِ إِنَّهُ كَانَ حَلِيْمًا غَفُوْرًا.

Innallaaha yumsikus samaawaati wal arz”i antazoolaa wa la-in zaalata in amsakahuma min ah’adim mim ba’dihi innahu kaana h’aleeman ghafooraa.

Surely Allah upholds the heavens and the earth lest they come to naught; and if they should come to naught, there is none who can uphold them after Him; surely He is the Forbearing, the Forgiving.[16]

For toothache (Proven effective)

It is to be recited for all those who come complaining about toothache. Recite after the Morning Prayer but before breakfast time. The reciter and the patient should face the Qibla (prayer direction). The patient must be told: Keep your finger on the tooth that is aching. After he has kept the finger on his teeth, the reciter should say as follows: In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful seven times. Then he should ask: What is your name? Again he should say: In the name of Allah seven times: Then again he should ask: What is your name? Then again he should recite: In the name of Allah seven times. Then the patient should keep his hand on the tooth that is aching and shaking it with his hand say: I imprison this pain for a year or five years. Then recite: In the name of Allah seven times. Then recite the last part of Surah Yasin from “And he strikes out a likeness for Us…to the end of the Surah (Verse 78 till the end). Then Qul huwallaaho Ahad (Surah Tawheed), then Surah Falaq and Surah Naas. Also the words of the Almighty:

وَ لَهُ مَا سَكَنَ فِيْ اللَّيْلِ وَ النَّهَارِ وَ هُوَ السَّمِيْعُ الْعَلِيْمُ.

Wa lahu maa sakana fil laili wan nahaari wa huwas sameeu’l a’leem.

And to Him belongs whatever dwells in the night and the day; and He is the Hearing, the Knowing.

Also recite:

أَلَمْ تَرَ إِلٰى رَبِّكَ كَيْفَ مَدَّ الظِّلَّ وَ لَوْ شَآءَ لَجَعَلَهُ سَاكِنًا.

Alam tara ilaa rabbika kaifa maddaz’ z’illa wa lau shaa-a laja-a’lahu saakinaa.

Have you not considered (the work of) your Lord, how He extends the shade? And if He had pleased He would certainly have made it stationary.

And the words of the Almighty:

إِنْ يَشَأْ يُسْكِنِ الرِّيْحَ

Inyashaa- yuskinir reeh’

If He pleases, He causes the wind to become still.

Then shake the aching head with his hand and raise the hands. The throbbing pain will not return to him by the leave of Allah, the Exalted.[17]

In the Evil Wind which Strikes the Face[18]

Ahmad bin Ibrahim bin Riyah narrated from al-Sabbah bin Muharib, who said: I was with Abu Ja’far bin al-Reza (a.s.). He mentioned that Shabib bin Jabir was struck by the evil wind, which had pulled down his face and eyes (to one side). He (Abu Ja’far) said: Take five mithqals[19] of cloves and put them in a dry bottle. Close the lid tightly and coat it with clay and place it in the sun for one day in the summer or two days in winter. Then take out the cloves and grind them until fine. Mix with rainwater until it becomes a thick liquid. Let him lie on his back and coat the ground clove on the side of the face that is pulled down. Let him remain lying down until the clove mixture dries. When it dries, Allah will remove it from him and restore him to his best condition, Allah, the Exalted, willing. He (al-Sabbah) said: Our companions hastened to him and gave him the good news of that. He treated himself as the Imam (a.s.) had instructed, and was restored to the best condition, with the help of Allah, the Exalted.

Supplication for Leprosy and Vitiligo

It is narrated from Yunus that he said: I was afflicted with whiteness in my eyes. So I went to Abi Abdullah as-Sadiq (a.s.) and complained to him about it. He said: Perform the ritual purification and pray two units of prayer and recite:

يَا اللهُ يَا رَحْمٰنُ يَا رَحِيْمُ يَا سَمِيْعَ الدَّعَوَاتِ يَا مُعْطِىَ الْخَيْرَاتِ اَعْطِنِيْ خَيْرَ الدُّنْيَا وَ خَيْرَ اْلآخِرَةِ وَقِنِيْ شَرَّ الدُّنْيَا وَ شَرَّ اْلآخِرَةِ وَ اَذْهِبْ عَنِّيْ مَا اَجِدُ فَقَدْ غَاضَنِيْ اْلاَمْرُ وَ اَحْزَنَنِىْ.

Yaa allaahu yaa rah’maanu yaa rah’eemu yaa sameeu’d da-a’waati Yaa mu’t’iyal khairaat. Aa’t’inee khairad dunyaa wa khairal aakhirati waqinee sharrad dunyaa wa sharral aakhirati wa adh-hib a’nnee maa ajidu faqad ghaaz”anil amru wa ah’zananee.

O Allah, O Beneficent, O Merciful, O Hearer of the Supplications. O Bestower of the goodness. Give to me the best of the world and the best of the Hereafter and save me from the evil of the world and the evil of the hereafter and take away from me that which afflicts me for the affair has vexed me and aggrieved me.

Yunus said: I did as he instructed me and Allah removed that from me, praise be to Him.

From Yunus bin Ammar that he said: I said to Abi Abdillah (a.s.): May I be sacrificed for you. This thing, which is apparent on my face, the people say that Allah does not test a sincere servant through it. He (the Imam) said to me: The believer of Aale Yasin was having leprous fingers when used to say with his hands outstretched: “O my people, follow the messengers” He said: Then he said to me: When it is the first third part of the night, perform ablution and stand for your prayer that you perform. When you are in the last prostration, recite:

يَا عَلِىُّ يَا عَظِيْمُ يَا رَحْمٰنُ يَا رَحِيْمُ يَا سَامِعَ الدَّعَوَاتِ يَا مُعْطِىَ الْخَيْرَاتِ صَلِّ عَلٰی مُحَمَّدٍ وَ آلِ مُحَمَّدٍ وَ اَعْطِنِيْ مِنْ خَيْرِ الدُّنْيَا وَ اْلآخِرَةِ مَا اَنْتَ اَهْلُهُ وَ اصْرِفْ عَنِّيْ مِنْ شَرِّ الدُّنْيَا وَ اْلآخِرَةِ مَا اَنْتَ اَهْلُهُ وَ اَذْهِبْ عَنِّيْ هٰذَا الْوَجَعَ فَإنَّهُ قَدْ غَاظَنِيْ وَ اَحْزَنَنِيْ.

Yaa aleeyu yaa a’z’eemu yaa rah’maanu yaa rah’eemu yaa saamia’d da’waati yaa mu’t’iyal khairaat. S’alli a’laa muh’ammadinw wa aali muh’ammadinw wa aa’t’inee khairid dunyaa wa khairil aakhirati maa anta ahluhu was’rif a’nnee min sharrid dunyaa wal aakhirati maa anta ahluhu wa adh-hib a’nnee haadhal waja-a’ fa-innahu qad ghaaz’anee wa ah’zananee.

O High, O Great, O Beneficent, O Merciful, O Hearer of supplications, O Bestower of blessings! Bless Muhammad and the progeny of Muhammad, and grant me the good of this world and the next with that which befits You. And protect me from the evil of this world and the hereafter, as befits You and remove from me this pain, for indeed it has vexed me and grieved me.

Beseech and implore much in supplication. Yunus said: When I reached till Kufa, Allah had removed it from me completely.

Vitiligo and Whiteness of the Eyes

It is narrated from Abu Abdillah (a.s.) that he said: Purify yourself and pray two units of prayer and say:

يَا اللهُ يَا رَحْمٰنُ يَا رَحِيْمُ يَا سَامِعَ اْلاَصْوَاتِ يَا مُعْطِىَ الْخَيْرَاتِ اَعْطِنِيْ خَيْرَ الدُّنْيَا وَ اْلآخِرَةِ وَقِنِيْ شَرَّ الدُّنْيَا وَ اْلآخِرَةِ وَ اَذْهِبْ عَنِّيْ مَا اَجِدُ فَقَدْ غَاضَنِيْ اْلاَمْرُ وَ اَحْزَنَنِيْ.

Yaa allaahu yaa rah’maanu yaa rah’eemu yaa saamia’l as’waat. Yaa mu’t’iyal khairaati aa’t’inee khairad dunyaa wal aakhirati waqinee sharrad dunyaa wal aakhirati wa adh-hib a’nnee maa ajidu faqad ghaaz”anil amru wa ah’zananee.

O Allah, O Merciful, O Compassionate, O All-hearing, O Hearer of supplications, O Bestower of blessings. Grant me the good of this world and the next, and protect me from the evil of this world and the evil of the next world, and remove from me my suffering, for the affair has vexed me and grieved me.

He (a.s.) said: Put your hand upon him and say:

يَا مُنْزِلَ الشِّفَاءِ وَ مُذْهِبَ الدَّاءِ، اُنْزِلْ عَلَىَّ مَا بِىْ مِنْ دَاءٍ شِفَاءَ.

Yaa munzilash shifaa-i wa mudh-hibad daa-i unzil a’layya maa bee min daa-in shifaa.

O sender of the cure and the remover of maladies. Send upon me cure of the malady I suffer from.[20]

Leucoderma

Write upon the affected place:

وَ إِنْ مِّنْ شَيْءٍ إِلاَّ عِنْدَنَا خَزَائِنُهُ وَ مَا نُنَزِّلُهُ إِلاَّ بِقَدَرٍ مَّعْلُوْمٍ.

Wa immin shai-in illaa i’ndanaa khazaa-inuhu wa maa nunazziluhu illaa biqadarim ma’loom.

And there is not a thing but with Us are the treasures of it, and We do not send it down but in a known measure.[21]

قَالَ هَلْ يَسْمَعُوْنَكُمْ إِذْ تَدْعُوْنَ. أَوْ يَنْفَعُوْنَكُمْ أَوْ يَضُرُّوْنَ.

Qaala hal yasmao’o’nakum idh tad-o’o’n. auyanfao’o’ nakum au yaz”urroon.

He said: Do they hear you when you call? Or do they profit you or cause you harm?[22]

For Swelling in the Body

It is narrated from Abu Abdillah as-Sadiq (a.s.), who said: This verse is for every swelling in the body for which a man is afraid to resort to anything (else). When you recite it, do so when you are in a state of purity. When you have performed the ablution for the obligatory prayer, seek protection with it (the verse) from your swelling before the prayer and meditate on it. The verse is:

لَوْ أَنْزَلْنَا هٰذَا الْقُرْآنَ عَلٰى جَبَلٍ لَّرَأَيْتَهُ خَاشِعًا مُّتَصَدِّعًا مِّنْ خَشْيَةِ اللهِ.

Lau anzalnaa haadhal qur-aana a’laa jabalil lara-aitahu khaashia’m mutas’addi a’m min khashyatillaah.

Had We sent down this Quran on a mountain, you would certainly have seen it falling down, splitting asunder because of the fear of Allah…[23]

…until the end of the Chapter. If you do that according to what has been mentioned to you, the swelling will subside.[24]

An Invocation for Pustules

It is narrated from Ja’far bin Muhammad as-Sadiq (a.s.), who said: When you feel a pustule (appearing), put your index finger on it and circle it and say seven times:

لاَ اِلٰهَ إِلاَّ اللهُ الْحَلِيْمُ الْكَرِيْمُ.

Laa ilaaha illallaahul h’aleemul kareem.

There is no God but Allah, the Clement, the Noble.

On the seventh time, strike it and press on it with your finger.

From Abi Abdullah as-Sadiq (a.s.), who said: Most of these abscesses and sores are from this excessively heated blood, which a person does not take out at its time. Whoever is overcome by something of that, let him say when he goes to bed:

اَعُوْذُ بِوَجْهِ اللهِ الْعَظِيْمِ، وَ كَلِمَاتِهِ التَّامَّاتِ الَّتِىْ لاَ يُجَاوِزْهُنَّ بَرٌّ وَ لاَ فَاجِرٌ، وَ مِنْ شَرِّ كُلِّ ذِىْ شَرٍّ.

Au’dhu biwaj-hillaahil a’z’eem. Wa kalimaatihit taaammaatil latee laa yujaawiz hunna barrunw wa laa faajirunw wa min sharri kulli dhi sharr.

I take refuge in the face of Allah, the Mighty, and His perfect words, which neither the righteous nor the ungodly pass by, from the evil of everything possessed of evil.

When he has said that, none of the jinn will harm him and he will be restored to health by it, Allah the Exalted willing.

It is narrated for itch, abscesses and ringworm, that it be recited on him, written and fastened to him:

بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمٰنِ الرَّحِيْمِ.وَ مَثَلُ كَلِمَةٍ خَبِيْثَةٍ كَشَجَرَةٍ خَبِيْثَةٍ اجْتُثَّتْ مِنْ فَوْقِ اْلأَرْضِ مَا لَهَا مِنْ قَرَارٍ.

Bismillaahir rah’maanir rah’eemi. Wa mathalu kalimaatin khabeethatin kashajaratin khabeethatij tuththat min fauqil arz”i maa lahaa min qaraar.

In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful. And the parable of an evil word is as an evil tree pulled up from the earth’s surface; it has no stability.[25]

And read:

مِنْهَا خَلَقْنَاكُمْ وَ فِيْهَا نُعِيْدُكُمْ وَ مِنْهَا نُخْرِجُكُمْ تَارَةً أُخْرٰى. اَللهُ اَكْبَرُ وَ اَنْتَ لاَ تَكْبَرُ، اَللهُ يَبْقٰی وَ اَنْتَ لاَ تَبْقِىْ، وَ اللهُ عَلٰی كُلِّ شَىْءٍ قَدِيْرٌ.

Minhaa khalaqnaakum wa feehaa nue’e’dukum wa minhaa nukhrijukum taaratan ukhraa. Allaahu akbaru wa anta laa takbar. Allaahu yabqa wa anta laa tabqee. Wallaahu a’laa kulli shai-in qadeer.

From it We created you and into it We shall send you back and from it will We raise you a second time.[26] Allah is the Greatest, and you aren’t, Allah is eternal and you aren’t, Allah is powerful over everything.[27]

Supplication for ears

It is narrated from Abi Ja’far (a.s.) that when a man complained to him of deafness, he said: Pass your hand over him and recite:

لَوْ أَنْزَلْنَا هٰذَا الْقُرْآنَ عَلٰى جَبَلٍ لَّرَأَيْتَهُ خَاشِعًا مُّتَصَدِّعًا مِّنْ خَشْيَةِ اللهِ وَ تِلْكَ اْلأَمْثَالُ نَضْرِبُهَا لِلنَّاسِ لَعَلَّهُمْ يَتَفَكَّرُوْنَ. هُوَ اللهُ الَّذِيْ لاَ إِلٰهَ إِلاَّ هُوَ عَالِمُ الْغَيْبِ وَ الشَّهَادَةِ هُوَ الرَّحْمَنُ الرَّحِيْمُ. هُوَ اللهُ الَّذِي لاَ إِلٰهَ إِلاَّ هُوَ الْمَلِكُ الْقُدُّوْسُ السَّلاَمُ الْمُؤْمِنُ الْمُهَيْمِنُ الْعَزِيْزُ الْجَبَّارُ الْمُتَكَبِّرُ سُبْحَانَ اللهِ عَمَّا يُشْرِكُونَ. هُوَ اللهُ الْخَالِقُ الْبَارِئُ الْمُصَوِّرُ لَهُ اْلأَسْمَآءُ الْحُسْنٰى يُسَبِّحُ لَهُ مَا فِيْ السَّمَاوَاتِ وَ اْلأَرْضِ وَ هُوَ الْعَزِيْزُ الْحَكِيْمُ.

Lau anzalnaa haadhal qur-aana a’laa jabalil lara-aitahu khaashia’m mustas’addi a’m min khashyatillaahi wa tilkal amthaalu naz”ribuhaa linnaasi la-a’llahum yatafakkaroon.

Huwallaahul khaaliqul baari-ul mus’awwiru lahul asmaa-ul h’usnaa. Yusabbih’u lahu maa fis samaawaati wal arz”i wa huwal a’zeezul h’akeem.

Had We sent down this Quran on a mountain, you would certainly have seen it falling down, splitting asunder because of the fear of Allah, and We set forth these parables to men that they may reflect. He is Allah besides Whom there is no god; the Knower of the unseen and the seen; He is the Beneficent, the Merciful. He is Allah, besides Whom there is no god; the King, the Holy, the Giver of peace, the Granter of security, Guardian over all, the Mighty, the Supreme, the Possessor of every greatness; Glory be to Allah from what they set up (with Him). He is Allah the Creator, the Maker, the Fashioner; His are the most excellent names; whatever is in the heavens and the earth declares His glory; and He is the Mighty, the Wise.[28]

In another narration from him for pain of ear: Recite the following verses seven times on jasmine oil or violets oil and pour it into the ear.[29]

كَأَن لَّمْ يَسْمَعْهَا كَأَنَّ فِي أُذُنَيْهِ وَقْرًا. إِنَّ السَّمْعَ وَ الْبَصَرَ وَ الْفُؤَادَ كُلُّ أُوْلٰئِكَ كَانَ عَنْهُ مَسْؤُلاً.

“Ka-allam yasma’haa ka-anna fee udhunaihi waqraa.” “Innas sam-a’ wal bas’ara wal fu-aada kullu oolaa-ika kaana a’nhu mas-oolaa.”

“As if he had not heard them, as though in his ears were a heaviness,”[30] “Surely the hearing and the sight and the heart, all of these, shall be questioned about that.”[31]

Supplication for the pain of the eye

Amirul Momineen (a.s.) said: When someone complains about this, let him recite the Throne verse and he will feel in himself that he is cured of it. Then he will be cured, Allah willing.[32]

Narrated from Muhammad al-Jufi from his father who said: I was having many problems connected to the eyes and I complained about it to Abi Abdullah (a.s.), who said: Shall I not teach you a supplication for your world and your hereafter and which will cure the pain of your eyes? So I said: Yes. He said: Say after the Morning Prayer and the Evening (Maghrib) prayer:

اَللَّهُمَّ إِنِّيْ اَسْاَلُكَ بِحَقِّ مُحَمَّدٍ وَ آلِ مُحَمَّدٍ عَلَيْكَ اَنْ تُصَلِّىَ عَلٰی مُحَمَّدٍ وَّ آلِ مُحَمَّدٍ وَ اَنْ تَجْعَلَ النُّوْرَ فِىْ بَصَرِىْ وَ الْبَصِيْرَةَ فِىْ دِيْنِيْ، وَ الْيَقِيْنَ فِىْ قَلْبِىْ وَ اْلإِخْلاَصَ فِىْ عَمَلِىْ، وَ السَّلاَمَةَ فِىْ نَفْسِىْ، وَ السِّعَةَ فِىْ رِزْقِىْ، وَ الشُّكْرَ لَكَ مَا اَبْقَيْتَنِيْ.

Allaahumma innee as-aluka bih’aqqi muh’ammadinw wa aali muh’ammadin a’laika an tus’alli a’laa muh’ammadinw wa aali muh’ammadinw wa antaj-a’lan noora fee bas’aree wal bas’eerata fee deenee. Wal yaqeena fee qalbee wal ikhlaas’a fee a’malee, was salaamata fee nafsee was sia’ta fee rizqee wash shukra laka maa abqaitanee.

O Allah indeed I ask You by the right of Muhammad and the family of Muhammad upon you is that You bless Muhammad and the family of Muhammad and that you appoint light in my vision and perception in my religion and certainty in my heart and sincerity in my deeds and safety in myself and expansion in my livelihood and thankfulness for You till you keep me alive.[33]

From al-Baqir (a.s.) who said: Whenever the Prophet (s.a.w.s.) had sore eyes or one from his family or his companions he supplicated with this supplication:

اَللَّهُمَّ مَتَّعِنِيْ بِسَمْعِىْ وَ بَصَرِىْ وَ اجْعَلْهُمَا الوَارِثِيْنَ مِنِّيْ وَ انْصُرْنِيْ عَلٰی مَنْ ظَلَمَنِيْ وَ اَرِنِيْ فِيْهِ ثَاْرِىْ.

Allaahumma mattai’nee bisam-e’e’ wa bas’aree waj-a’lhumal waaritheena minnee wans’urnee a’laa man z’alamanee wa arinee feehi thaa-ree.

O Allah, give me pleasure by my hearing and my vision and appoint them successors from me and help me on the one who has oppressed me and show my revenge in him.

From Sulaiman bin Isa, who said: I came to Abi Abdullah (a.s.) and I saw him having sore eyes. So I expressed my regret and went out. Then I came to him the next day and saw there was no problem with his eyes, I said: May I be sacrificed on you, I left you yesterday while you had sore eyes that frightened me, and when I have come today I don’t find anything wrong, have you taken some cure for it? He said: I secured cure for it through an amulet, which is with me. I said: Tell me about it and he wrote:

اَعُوْذُ بِعِزَّةِ اللهِ وَ اَعُوْذُ بِقُوَّةِ اللهِ اَعُوْذُ بِقُدْرَةِ اللهِ، اَعُوْذُ بِعَظَمَةِ اللهِ، اَعُوْذُ بِجَلاَلِ اللهِ، اَعُوذُ بِبَهَاءِ اللهِ، اَعُوْذُ بِجَمْعِ اللهِ، اَعُوْذُ بِرَسُوْلِ اللهِ، صَلَّی اللهُ علَيْهِ وَ آلِهِ وَ مَا اَحْذَرُ وَ اَخَافُ عَلٰی عَيْنِيْ وَ اَجْدَهُ فِىْ وَجَعِ عَيْنِيْ، اَللَّهُمَّ رَبَّ الطَّيِّبِيْنَ اَذْهِبْ عَنِّيْ بِحَوْلِكَ وَ قُوَّتِكَ.

I seek refuge in the might of Allah, I seek refuge by the strength of Allah, I seek refuge by the power of Allah, I seek refuge by the greatness of Allah, I seek refuge by the majesty of Allah, I seek refuge by the magnificence of Allah, I seek refuge by all the (names) of Allah, I seek refuge by the Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and his family and what I fear and dread about my eyes and I find pain in my eyes. O Allah Lord of the purified ones, take it away from me by Your power and strength.

A blind heard the Supplication of Amirul Momineen (a.s.)

اَللَّهُمَّ إِنِّيْ اَسْاَلُكَ يَا رَبِّ اْلاَرْوَاحِ الْفَانِيَةِ، وَ رَبِّ اْلاَجْسَادِ الْبَالِيَةِ، اَسْاَلُكَ بِطَاعَةِ اْلاَرْوَاحِ الرَّاجِعَةِ إِلٰی اَجسَادِهَا، وَ بِطَاعَةِ اْلاَجْسَادِ الْمُلْتَئِمَةِ إِلٰی اَعْضَائِهَا، وَ بِانْشِقَاقِ القُبُوْرِ عَنْ اَهْلِهَا، وَ بِدَعْوَتِكَ الصَّادِقَةِ فِيْهِمْ، وَ اَخْذُكَ بِالْحَقِّ بَيْنَهُمْ، إِذَا بَرَزَ الْخَلاَئِقُ يَنْتَظِرُوْنَ قَضَائَكَ وَ يُوْرُوْنَ سُلْطَانَكَ، وَ يَخَافُوْنَ بَطْشَكَ، وَ يَرْجُوْنَ رَحْمَتِكَ، يَوْمَ لاَ يُغْنِيْ مَوْلٰى عَنْ مَوْلٍىْ شَيْئٍا وَ هُمْ لاَ يُنْصَرُوْنَ إِلاَّ مَنْ رَحِمَ اللهُ إنَّهُ هُوَ الْعَزِيْزُ الرَّحِيْمُ، اَسْاَلُكَ يَا رَحْمٰنُ اَنْ تَجْعَلَ النُّوْرَ فِىْ بَصَرِىْ، وَ الْيَقِيْنَ فِىْ قَلْبِىْ، وَ ذِكْرُكَ بِاللَّيْلِ وَ النَّهَارِ عَلٰی لِسَانِيْ، اَبَدًا مَا اَبْقَيْتَنِيْ إنَّكَ عَلٰی كُلِّ شَىْءٍ قَدِيْرٌ.

O Allah, I certainly ask You, O Lord of the perishable souls and Lord of the growing bodies. I ask You by the power by which the souls return to their bodies and by the power by which the bodies unite with their parts and by the bursting of the graves that expel their inmates and by the Your true call from them. And Your taking their account with equity. When the creatures shall be raised, they would await for Your judgment and they would see Your rulership, and they would fear Your power and they will hope in Your mercy. On that day nothing of the slave would benefit the master nor anything of the master would benefit the slave and they shall not be helped except on whom Allah has mercy. Indeed He is the powerful, the merciful. I ask You, O Beneficent, that You appoint light in my vision and certainty in my heart and Your remembrance by the night and the day on my tongue, ever till I live. Indeed You are powerful over everything.

He said that a blind man heard it and memorized it and returned to his house and performed ablution for prayer and prayed, then he recited that supplication and when he reached the words: “That you appoint light in my eyes”, his sight was restored by the leave of Allah.[34]

From Abi Yusuf, who said: I said to Abul Hasan, the first (a.s.): I want to complain to you about my eyesight which has become weak. Then see if you can teach me something. He said: write the following verse:

اَللهُ نُوْرُ السَّمَاوَاتِ وَ اْلأَرْضِ مَثَلُ نُوْرِهِ كَمِشْكَاةٍ...

Allaahu Noorus samaawaati wal arz”i mathalu noorihi kamishkaatin…

Allah is the light of the heavens and the earth; a likeness of His light is as a niche…[35]

…till the end of the verse three times on a tumbler, then wash it and pour it into a bottle and make from it antimony. He said: I did not apply it more than a hundred times that my sight was restored as it was before.[36]

From al-Reza (a.s.) who said: Among the cures for the eyes is the recitation of Surah Hamd, Surah Falaq, Surah Naas and Throne verse, and smoke of Qust, myrrh and storax.

For weak eyesight

Indeed a man of weak eyesight saw in his dream that it was said for him to say:

اُعِيْذُ نُوْرَ بَصَرِىْ بِنُوْرِ اللهِ الَّذِىْ لاَ يُطْفَا.

ue’e’dhu noora bas’aree binoorillaahil ladhee laa yut’faa.

I seek refuge for the light of my eyes by that light that does not extinguish.

Pass your hand over your eyes and after that recite the Throne verse (Ayatul Kursi). He said: His vision was corrected and it was tried and it came out to be effective.

Supplication for Nosebleed

It is narrated that for curing nosebleed write the following verses on the forehead of the affected person with his own blood:[37]

وَ قِيْلَ يَا أَرْضُ ابْلَعِيْ مَائَكِ وَ يَا سَمَآءُ أَقْلِعِيْ وَ غِيْضَ الْمَآءُ وَ قُضِيَ اْلأَمْرُ وَ اسْتَوَتْ عَلَى الْجُودِيِّ وَ قِيْلَ بُعْداً لِّلْقَوْمِ الظَّالِمِيْنَ.

Wa qeela yaa arz”ub lae’e’ maa-aki wa yaa samaa-u aqlie’e’ wa gheez”al maa-u wa quz”iyal amru wastawat a’lal joodiyi wa qeela bu’-dal lil qaumiz’ z’aalimeen.

And it was said: O earth, swallow down your water, and O cloud, clear away; and the water was made to abate and the affair was decided, and the ark rested on the Judi, and it was said: Away with the unjust people. [38]

In another tradition the following verses be recited:

مِنْهَا خَلَقْنَاكُمْ وَ فِيْهَا نُعِيْدُكُمْ وَ مِنْهَا نُخْرِجُكُمْ تَارَةً أُخْرٰى

Minhaa khalaqnaakum wa feehaa nue’e’dukum wa minhaa nukhrijukum taaratan ukhraa.

From it We created you and into it We shall send you back and from it will We raise you a second time.[39]

يَوْمَئِذٍ يَتَّبِعُوْنَ الدَّاعِيَ لاَ عِوَجَ لَهُ وَ خَشَعَتِ اْلأَصْوَاتُ لِلرَّحْمٰنِ فَلاَ تَسْمَعُ إِلاَّ هَمْسًا

Yauma-idhiyn yattabio’o’nad daai’ya laa i’waja lahu wa khasha-a’til as’waatu lir rah’maani falaa tasmau’ illaa hamsaa.

On that day they shall follow the inviter, there is no crookedness in him, and the voices shall be low before the Beneficent God so that you shall not hear aught but a soft sound.[40]

وَ قِيْلَ يَا أَرْضُ ابْلَعِيْ مَائَكِ وَ يَا سَمَآءُ أَقْلِعِيْ وَ غِيْضَ الْمَآءُ وَ قُضِيَ اْلأَمْرُ وَ اسْتَوَتْ عَلَى الْجُودِيِّ وَ قِيْلَ بُعْداً لِّلْقَوْمِ الظَّالِمِيْنَ.

Wa qeela yaa arz”ub lae’e’ maa-aki wa yaa samaa-u aqlie’e’ wa gheez”al maa-u wa quz”iyal amru wastawat a’lal joodiyi wa qeela bu’dalil qaumiz’ z’aalimeen.

And it was said: O earth, swallow down your water, and O cloud, clear away; and the water was made to abate and the affair was decided, and the ark rested on the Judi, and it was said: Away with the unjust people.[41]

وَ مَنْ يَتَّقِ اللهَ يَجْعَلْ لَهُ مَخْرَجًا وَ يَرْزُقْهُ مِنْ حَيْثُ لاَ يَحْتَسِبْ.

Wa mayn yattaqillaahi yaj-a’l lahu makhrajanw wa yarzuqhu min h’aithu laa yah’tasib.

And whoever is careful of (his duty to) Allah, He will make for him an outlet, and give him sustenance from whence he thinks not.[42]

…till the end of the verse.

In the same way recite:

وَ جَعَلْنَا مِنْ بَيْنِ أَيْدِيْهِمْ سَدًّا وَ مِنْ خَلْفِهِمْ سَدًّا فَأَغْشَيْنَاهُمْ فَهُمْ لاَ يُبْصِرُوْنَ.

Wa ja-a’lnaa mim baini aideehim saddanw wa min khalfihim saddan fa-aghshainaahum fahum laa yubs’iroon.

And We have made before them a barrier and a barrier behind them, then We have covered them over so that they do not see.[43]

Cure for Nosebleed (To stop bleeding)

That the two verses be written on a paper and kept on the head of the patient. Then keep your hand on his head and recite them Then say after each verse:

كِفْ اَيُّهَا الرَّعَافُ عَنْ حَامِلِ كِتَابِىْ هٰذَا بِحَقِّ الْوَاحِدِ الْقَهَّارِ الْعَزِيْزِ الْجَبَّارِ الَّذِىْ يَفْعَلُ مَا يَشَآءُ وَ يَخْتَارُ وَ لاَ تُدْرِكُهُ اْلاَبْصَارُ وَ هُوَ يُدْرِكُ اْلاَبْصَارُ.

kif ayyohar ra’afu a’n h’aamili kitaabi haadha bih’aqqil waah’idil qahhaaril a’zeezil jabbaaril ladhi yaf-a’lu maa yashaa-u wa yakhtaaru wa laa tudrkuhul abs’aaru wa huwa yudrikul abs’aar.

Stop, O nosebleed from the carrier of this writing by the right of the One, the Subduer, the Powerful, the Compeller, One Who does what He desires, chooses what He likes. And visions do not comprehend Him and He can see the visions.

And the two verses are as follows:

بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمٰنِ الرَّحِيْمِ. إِنَّ اللهَ يُمْسِكُ السَّمَاوَاتِ وَ اْلأَرْضَ أَنْ تَزُوْلاَ وَ لَئِنْ زَالَتَا إِنْ أَمْسَكَهُمَا مِنْ أَحَدٍ مِّنْ بَعْدِهِ إِنَّهُ كَانَ حَلِيْمًا غَفُوْرًا.

Bismillaahir rah’maanir rah’eem. Innallaaha yumsikus samaawaati wal arz”a antazoolaa wa la-in zaalataa in amsakahumaa min ah’adim mim ba’dihi innahu kaana h’aleeman ghafooraa.

In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful. Surely Allah upholds the heavens and the earth lest they come to naught; and if they should come to naught, there is none who can uphold them after Him; surely He is the Forbearing, the Forgiving.[44]

وَ قِيْلَ يَا أَرْضُ ابْلَعِيْ مَائَكِ وَ يَا سَمَآءُ أَقْلِعِيْ وَ غِيْضَ الْمَآءُ وَ قُضِيَ اْلأَمْرُ وَ اسْتَوَتْ عَلَى الْجُودِيِّ وَ قِيْلَ بُعْداً لِّلْقَوْمِ الظَّالِمِيْنَ.

Wa qeela yaa arz”ub lae’e’ maa-aki wa yaa samaa-u aqlie’e’ wa gheez”al maa-u wa quz”iyal amru wastawat a’lal joodiyi wa qeela bu’dal lil qaumiz’ z’aalimeen.

And it was said: O earth, swallow down your water, and O cloud, clear away; and the water was made to abate and the affair was decided, and the ark rested on the Judi, and it was said: Away with the unjust people.[45]

Supplication for Mouth Pain

From Abi Basir, from Abi Abdullah (a.s.) who said: One among his friends complained to him about mouth pain. He said: When you have this pain, keep your hand on it and say:

بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمٰنِ الرَّحِيْمِ لاَ يَضُرُّ مَعَ اسْمِهِ دَاءٌ اَعُوْذُ بِكَلِمَاتِ اللهِ الَّتِيْ لاَ يَضُرُّ مَعَهَا شَىْءٌ قُدُّوْسٌ قُدُّوْسٌ قُدُّوْسٌ اَسْاَلُكَ يَا رَبِّ بِاسْمِكَ الطَّاهِرِ الْمُقَدَّسِ الْمُبَارَكِ الَّذِىْ مَنْ سَاَلَكَ بِهِ اَعْطَيْتَهُ وَ مَنْ دَعَاكَ بِهِ اَجَبْتَهُ اَسْاَلُكَ يَا اللهُ يَا اللهُ يَا اللهُ اَنْ تُصَلِّىَ عَلٰی مُحَمَّدٍ النَّبِىِّ وَ اَهْلِ بَيْتِهِ وَ اَنْ تُعَافِيَنِيْ بِمَا اَجِدُ فِىْ فَمِىْ وَ فِىْ رَاَسِىْ وَ فِىْ سَمْعِىْ وَ فِىْ بَصَرِىْ وَ فِىْ بَطْنِيْ وَ فِىْ ظَهْرِىْ وَ فِىْ يَدِىْ وَ فِىْ رِجْلِىْ وَ فِىْ جَوَارِحِىْ كُلِّهَا.

Bismillaahir rah’maanir rah’eem. Laa yaz”urru ma-a’smihi daa-un ao’o’dhu bikalimaatillahil latee laa yaz”urru ma-a’haa shai-un quddoosun quddoosun quddoosun as-aluka yaa rabbi bismikat’ t’aahiril muqaddasil mubaarakilladhee man sa-alaka bihi aa’t’aitahu wa man da-a’a’ka bihi ajabtahu as-aluka yaa allaahu yaa allaahu yaa allaah. An tus’allee a’laa muh’ammadin nabeeyi wa ahli baitihi wa antua’a’fiyanee bimaa ajidu famee wa fee raa-see wa fee sam-e’e’ wa fee bas’aree wa fee bat’nee wa fee z’ahree wa fee yadee wa fee rijlee wa fee jawaarih’ee kullihaa.

In the name of Allah the Beneficent, the Merciful. No malady can harm with His name. I seek refuge by the words of Allah with whom nothing causes any harm. The hallowed the hollowed the hallowed. I ask You O Lord by Your name, which is pure, sanctified and blessed. That with which if one prays he is granted. And with which if one calls You, You answer him. I beseech You, O Allah, O Allah, O Allah that You bless Muhammad, the Prophet and the people of his house and that You save me from that which afflicts my mouth and my head and my hearing and my sight and my stomach and my back and my hands and my legs and all my organs and physical parts.

Then it would abate from you if Allah, the Exalted wills.[46]

Supplication for fever

Amirul Momineen (a.s.) said: The Messenger of Allah (s.a.w.s.) had a severe fever. Jibraeel (a.s.) came to him and recited an invocation of protection over him. He said:

بِسْمِ اللهِ اَرْقِيْكَ، بِسْمِ اللهِ اَشْفِيْكَ، مِنْ كُلِّ دَاءٍ يُؤْذِيْكَ، بِسْمِ اللهِ وَ اللهِ شَافِيْكَ، بِسْمِ اللهِ خُذْهَا فَلْتُهْنِيْكَ، بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمٰنِ الرَّحِيْمِ. فَلآ اُقْسِمُ بِمَوَاقِعِ النُّجُوْمِ. وَ إِنَّهُ لَقَسَمٌ لَّوْ تَعْلَمُوْنَ عَظِيْمٌ.

Bismillaahi arqeeka Bismillaahi ashfeeka min kulli daa-iyn yu-dheeka Bismillaahi wallaahi shafeeka Bismillaahi khudh-haa faltuhneeka. Bismillaahir rah’maanir rah’eem. Falaa uqsimu bimawaaqi-i’n nujoom. Wa innahu laqasamul lau ta’lamoona a’z’eem.

In the name of Allah, I invoke you. In the name of Allah, I cure you of every illness that troubles you. In the name of Allah, and Allah is your healer. In the name of Allah, take it and may it be good for you. In the name of Allah, the Merciful, the Compassionate. But nay! I swear by the falling of stars; And most surely it is a very great oath if you only knew. [47]

You will surely be restored to health, Allah the Mighty and Sublime, willing.[48]

It is narrated from as-Sadiq (a.s.), that a man of his followers came to him and he said: Why do I see your color changed? He replied: May I be sacrificed for you. I am suffering from severe fever since a month. Though I resorted to all the remedies prescribed for me, nothing proved beneficial. As-Sadiq (a.s.) said: Open your shirt and put your head in it and recite the call of Prayer and Iqamah and recite Surah Hamd seven times. He said: I did it and it was as if I was freed from the shackles.

From one of the Imams (a.s.): I do not recite the Surah Hamd seventy times except that I get relief and if you like, you can try it; and do not have doubt about it.

From Dawood al-Raqqi, who said: I was severely ill in Medina and news of that reached Abu Abdillah (a.s.). He wrote to me: News of your illness has reached me. Buy a Sa-a[49] of wheat, lie down on your back, and scatter it in any way whatever on your chest and say:

اَللَّهُمَّ إِنِّيْ اَسْاَلُكَ بِاسْمِكَ الَّذِىْ إِذَا سَاَلَكَ بِهِ الْمُضْطَرُّ كَشَفْتَ مَا بِهِ مِنْ ضُرٍّ وَ مَكَنْتَ لَهُ فِىْ اْلاَرْضِ وَ جَعَلْتَهُ خَلِيْفَتَكَ عَلٰی خَلْقِكَ اَنْ تُصَلِّىَ عَلٰی مُحَمَّدٍ وَ عَلٰی اَهْلِ بَيْتِهِ وَ اَنْ تُعَافِيَنِيْ مِنْ عِلَّتِىْ هٰذِهِ.

Allaahumma innee as-aluka bismikal ladhee idhaa sa-alaka bihil muz”t’arru kashafta maa bihi min z”urrinw wa makanta lahu fil arz”i wa ja-a’ltahu khaleefataka a’laa khalqika an tus’allee a’laa muh’ammadinw wa a’laa ahli baitihi wa antua’a’fiyanee min i’llatee haadhih.

O Allah, I ask You by Your name by which, if the distressed asks You, his trouble is removed, and You have established him on the earth and made him Your vicegerent over Your creation, to bless Muhammad and his family and to cure me of this illness of mine.

Then sit up and gather the wheat from around you, and recite the same prayer. Then divide the wheat, giving (the measure of a) madd to each beggar and recite the same prayer again. Dawood said: I did as he instructed and recovered as if released from the shackles. More than one person used this remedy and benefited from it.

Also from as-Sadiq (a.s.) who said: There is none from the believers that is inimical to his believer brother and he complains. Then say for him:

اُعِيْذُكَ بِاللهِ الْعَظِيْمِ، رَبِّ الْعَرْشِ الْكَرِيْمِ، وَ مِنْ شَرِّ كُلِّ عَرْقٍ نَعَّارٍ، وَ مِنْ شَرِّ حَرِّ النَّارِ.

u’e’e’dhuka billaahil a’z’eemi Rabbul a’rshil kareemi wa min sharri kulli a’rqin na’-a’a’ri wa min sharri h’arrin naar.

I seek refuge of Allah, the Great, Lord of the throne, the Merciful, and from all the throbbing veins, and from the evil of the heat of the fire.

By doing so there would be reduction in it and Allah would cure him from it.

An Invocation for Sciatica

From Amirul Momineen (a.s.), that one of his companions had complained to him of sciatica. He (Amirul Mo-mineen) replied: When you experience it, place your hand on it and say:

بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمٰنِ الرَّحِيْمِ، بِسْمِ اللهِ وَ باللهِ، اَعُوْذُ بِاسْمِ اللهِ الْكَبِيْرِ، وَ اَعُوْذُ بِاسْمِ اللهِ الْعَظِيْمِ، مِنْ كُلِّ عَرْقٍ نعّار، و منْ شرِّ حرِّ النَّارِ

Bismillaahir rah’maanir rah’eem. Bismillaahi wa billaahi ao’o’dhubis millaahil kabeer. Wa ao’o’dhu bismillaahil a’z’eem. min sharri kulli a’rqin na’-a’a’ri wa min sharri h’arrin naar.

For Serious Affliction

It is narrated from Abu Abdillah as-Sadiq (a.s.), who said: This invocation is for one who suffers from serious afflictions, like canker etc. Place your hand on the head of the afflicted person and say:

بِسْمِ اللهِ وَ بِاللهِ وَ مِنَ اللهِ وَ إِلَی اللهِ وَ مَا شَاءَ اللهُ وَ لاَ حَوْلَ وَ لاَ قُوَّةَ إِلاَّ بِاللهِ اِبْرَاهِيْمَ خَلِيْلُ اللهِ مُوسٰی كَلِيْمُ اللهِ نُوْحٍ نَجِىُّ اللهِ عِيْسٰی رُوْحُ اللهِ، مُحَمَّدٌ رَسُوْلُ اللهِ، صَلَوَاتُ اللهِ علَيْهِمْ اَجْمَعِيْنَ، مِنْ كُلِّ بَلاَءٍ فَادِحٍ وَ اَمْرٍ فَاجِعٍ وَ كُلِّ رِيْحٍ وَ اَرْوَاحٍ وَ اَوْجَاعٍ قَسَمٌ مِنَ اللهِ وَ عَزائِمِ مِنْهُ لِفُلاَنَ بْنَ فُلاَنَةٍ لاَ يَقْرِبَهُ اْلآكِلَةُ وَ غَيْرُهُ وَ اَعِيْذُهُ بِكَلِمَاتِ اللهِ التَّامَّاتِ الَّتِىْ سُئِلَ بِهَا آدَمَ عَلَيْهِ السَّلامُ رَبَّهُ فَتَابَ عَلَيْهِ إِنَّهُ هُوَ التَّوَّابُ الرَّحِيْمُ اَلاَ اَنَّهَا حِرْزُ اَيَّتُهَا اْلاَوْجَاعُ الصَّاخِبَةُ بِإِذْنِ اللهِ بِعَوْنِ اللهِ بِقُدْرَةِ اللهِ اَلاَ لَهُ الْخَلْقِ وَ اْلاَمْرُ تَبَارَكَ اللهُ رَبُّ الْعَالَمِيْنَ.

In the name of Allah, and by Allah, and from Allah, and to Allah, and what Allah wills. There is no might nor power except with Allah, Ibrahim the confidant of Allah, Musa the spoken one of Allah, Nuh, the confidant of Allah, Isa, the spirit of Allah, Muhammad the Messenger of Allah, blessings of Allah on them all, from every serious affliction and distressing affair, and from all winds, spirits, and pains decreed by Allah and His ordinances, for so-and-so, son of so-and-so, and that neither cankers nor other afflictions should come near him. I seek protection for him with the Perfect Words of Allah for which Adam (a.s.), asked his Lord, and He turned to him. Surely, He is Oft returning, Compassionate, O clamoring pains and spirits, by the Will of Allah, by the Help of Allah, by the Power of Allah, surely to Him belongs the creation and the affair. Blessed be Allah, the Lord of the Worlds.

Then recite Surah Hamd and the Throne Verse (Ayat al-Kursi) and ten verses from Surah Yasin, and ask him for healing, by the right of Muhammad and the family of Muhammad. He will be cured of every illness, Allah, the Exalted, willing.’[1]

Taking honey as medicine

If one intends to drink honey dissolved in water he must say:

اَللَّهُمَّ إِنَّكَ شَرَّفْتَنِيْ بِالدَّلاَلَةِ عَلٰی مَعْرِفَتِكَ، وَ الْهِدَايَةِ إِلٰى مَعْرِفَةِ رَسُوْلِكَ وَ خَاصَّتِكَ، وَ جَعلْتَنِيْ مِنَ الصَّادِقِيْنَ لِقُرْآنِكَ، وَ الْمَشْمُوْلِيْنَ بِإِحْسَانِكَ، وَ قَدْ وَجَدْتُ فِىْ الْقُرْآنِ الْمَجِيْدِ. وَ جَعَلْنَا مِنَ الْمَآءِ كُلَّ شَىْءٍ حَىٍّ. فَكَانَ الْمَاءُ مِنْ اَسْبَابِ الْحَيَاةِ وَ الْبَقَاءِ، وَ قُلْتَ - جَلَّ جَلاَلُك - فِىْ الْعَسْلِ وَ الظَّفَرِ مِنْهُ بِالشِّفَاءِ. يَخْرُجُ مِنْ بُطُوْنِهَا شَرَابٌ مُخْتَلِفٌ اَلْوَانُهُ فِيْهِ شِفَاءٌ لِّلنَّاسِ. وَ قَدْ جَمَعْتَ بَيْنَ الْمَاءِ الَّذِىْ هُوَ سَبَبُ الْحَيَاةِ، وَ بَيْنَ الْعَسَلِ الَّذِىْ جَعَلْتَهُ لِلْعَافِيَةِ وَ النَّجَاةِ، اَللَّهُمَّ فَعَجِّلْ رَحْمَتِىْ وَ إِجَابَتِىْ فِىْ عَافِيَتِىْ، وَ تَصْدِيْقِ مَا وَجَدْتُهُ فِىْ كِتَابِكَ الصَّادِقِ، عَلٰی لِسَانِ رَسُوْلِكَ الصَّادِقِ وَ اجْعَلْنِيْ مِمَّنْ يَطْلُبُ الْبَقاءَ وَ الشِّفَاءَ لِسَعَادَتِىْ بِعِبَادَتِىْ فِىْ دُنْيَاىَ وَ آخِرَتِىْ، بِرَحْمَتِكَ يَا اَرْحَمَ الرَّاحِمِيْنَ، وَ اجْعَلِ - اللَّهُمَّ – ذٰلِكَ دَاعِيًا لِلشَّاكِّيْنَ فِىْ رُبُوْبِيَّتِكَ، وَ الْمُخَالِفِيْنَ لِرسَالَتِكَ، إِلٰی هِدَايَتِهِمْ وَ سَلاَمَتِهِمْ مِنْ ضَلاَلَتِهِمْ، يَا اَكْرَمَ اْلاَكْرَمِيْن.

O Allah indeed You honored me by the proof upon Your recognition, and guidance to the recognition of Your Prophet and Your chosen ones. And made me from the testifiers of Quran and among the recipients of Your favor. I have found in the Glorious Quran: And We have made of water everything living.[2] And water is among the causes of life and survival. And You, may Your majesty by magnified, said regarding honey and its cure: There comes forth from within it a beverage of many colors, in which there is healing for men.[3] And brought together in water which is the cause of life, and in honey You put safety and salvation. O Allah hasten mercy for me and the acceptance of my salvation and its proof is what I found in Your truthful book, on the tongue of Your Messenger, the truthful one. And make of those who seek survival and cure for my success by my worship in the world and the hereafter, by Your mercy, O the best of the merciful ones. And make O Allah, make this an invitation for those who doubt in Your Lordship, and are opposers of Your Prophethood as their guidance and safety from their deviation. O the most honored of the honored ones.[4]

Antimony Kohl

It is narrated from Imam Reza (a.s.) who said: One who is afflicted weak eyesight should apply Kohl of Ismad,[5] seven times at bedtime. Four times in the right eye and three times in the left eye.

Also from him (a.s.), who said: Applying Kohl at bedtime protects from the water that comes down in the eyes.

It is narrated that the following supplication may be recited at the time of applying the Kohl:

اَللَّهُمَّ إِنِّيْ اَسْاَلُكَ بِحَقِّ مُحَمَّدٍ وَ آلِ مُحَمَّدٍ عَلَيْكَ اَنْ تُصَلِّىَ عَلٰی مُحَمَّدٍ وَ آلِ مُحَمَّدٍ وَ اَنْ تَجْعَلَ النُّوْرَ فِىْ بَصَرِىْ وَ الْبَصِيْرَةَ فِىْ دِيْنِيْ، وَ الْيَقِيْنَ فِىْ قَلْبِىْ وَ اْلإِخْلاَصَ فِىْ عَمَلِىْ، وَ السَّلاَمَةَ فِىْ نَفْسِىْ، وَ السِّعَةَ فِىْ رِزقِىْ، وَ الشُّكْرَ لَكَ مَا اَبْقَيْتَنِيْ.

Allaahumma innee as-aluka bih’aqqi muh’ammadinw wa aali muh’ammad. A’laika an tus’allee a’laa muh’ammadinw wa aali muh’ammadinw wa an taj-a’lannoora fee bas’aree wal bas’areeta fee deenee, wal yaqeena fee qalbee wal ikhlaas’a fee a’malee was salaamata fee nafsee was sia’ta fee rizqee wash shukralaka maa abqaitanee.

O Allah! Indeed I ask You by the right of Muhammad and the family of Muhammad, upon You is that You bless Muhammad and the family of Muhammad. And that You appoint light in my eyes and perception in my religion and certainty in my heart and sincerity in my deeds: safety of myself and expansion in my sustenance and thankfulness for You that You kept me alive.[6]

Supplication for circumcision

Imam as-Sadiq (a.s.) said that the following supplication is to be recited at the time of circumcision of children:

اَللَّهُمَّ هٰذِهِ سُنَّتُكَ نَبِيِّكَ، صَلََوَاتُكَ عَلَيْهِ وَ آلِهِ، وَ اتِّبَاعٌ مِنَّا لَكَ وَ لِنَبِيِّكَ بِمَشِيَّتِكَ وَ بِإِرَادَتِكَ وَ قَضَائِكَ، ِلاَمْرٍ اَرَدْتَهُ وَ قَضَآءٍ حَتَمْتَهُ، وَ اَمْرٍ اَنْفَدْتَهُ، وَ اَذَقْتَهُ حَرَّ الْحَدِيْدِ فِىْ خِتَانِهِ، وَ حِجَامَتِهِ ِلاَمْرٍ اَنْتَ اَعْرَفُ بِهِ مِنِّيْ، اَللَّهُمَّ فَطَهِّرْهُ مِنَ الذَّنُوْبِ، وَ زِدْ فِىْ عُمْرِهِ وَ ادْفَعِ اْلآفَاتِ عَنْ بَدَنِهِ، وَ اْلاَوْجَاعَ عَنْ جِسْمِهِ، وَ زِدْهُ مِنَ الْغِنٰی وَ ادْفَعْ عَنْهُ الْفَقْرَ فَإنَّكَ تَعْلَمُ، وَ لاَ نَعْلَمُ.

Allaahumma haadhihi sunnatuka wa sunnatu nabeeyika s’alawaatuka a’laihi wa aalih. Wattibaau’m minna laka wa linabeeyika bishee-atika wa bi-iraadatika wa qaz”aa-ika li-amrin aradtahu wa qaz”aa-in h’atamtahu wa amrin anfadtahu wa adhaqtahu h’arral h’adeedi fee khitaanihi wa h’ijaamatihi li-amrin anta aa’rafu bihi minnee. Allaahumma fat’ahhirhu minadh dhunoobi wa zid fee u’mrihi wad fa-i’l aafaati a’m badanihi wal aujaa-a’ a’n jismihi wazidhu minal ghinaa wadfa’ a’nhul faqra fa-innaka ta’lamu wa laa na’lam.

O Allah this is Your Sunnat and the Sunnat (practice) of Your Prophet. May Your blessings be upon him and his family. And its following from us is for You and Your Prophet by Your hidden wisdom and by Your intention and Your judgment. That command which You decided and that destiny You made certain and the command that You issued and made him taste the heat (sharpness) of the iron in his circumcision and his bleeding for the matter in which You are more knowledgeable that me. O Allah then purify him from sins and increase his life span and repel calamities from his body and pains from his body and increase him in wealth and keep away poverty from him. Then You are the Knowing and we are the non-knowing.

Anyone who has not recited this at the time of circumcision can do so before the boy reaches maturity, and through this ensure his safety from murder etc.[7]

Formula for the pain of heart

Recite the following verses on water and make the patient drink it:

بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمٰنِ الرَّحِيْمِ. لَئِنْ أَنْجَيْتَنَا مِنْ هٰذِهِ لَنَكُوْنَنَّ مِنَ الشَّاكِرِيْنَ.

Bismillaahir rah’maanir rah’eem. La-in anjaitanaa min haadhihi lanakoonanna minash shaakireen.

In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful. If Thou dost deliver us from this, we will most certainly be of the grateful ones.[8]

سَيُهْزَمُ الْجَمْعُ وَ يُوَلُّوْنَ الدُّبُرَ. بَلِ السَّاعَةُ مَوْعِدُهُمْ وَ السَّاعَةُ أَدْهٰى وَ أَمَرُّ.

Sayuhzamul jam-u’ wa yuwalloonad dubura. Balis saa-a’tu mau-i’duhum was saa-a’tu ad-haa wa amarro.

Soon shall the hosts be routed, and they shall turn (their) backs. Nay, the hour is their promised time, and the hour shall be most grievous and bitter.[9]

إِنَّ اللهَ يُمْسِكُ السَّمَاوَاتِ وَ اْلأَرْضَ أَنْ تَزُوْلاَ وَ لَئِنْ زَالَتَا إِنْ أَمْسَكَهُمَا مِنْ أَحَدٍ مِّنْ بَعْدِهِ إِنَّهُ كَانَ حَلِيْمًا غَفُوْرًا.

Innallaaha yumsikus samaawaati wal arz”a an tazoolaa wa la-in zaalataa in amsakahumaa min ah’adim mim ba’dihi innahu kaana h’aleeman ghafooraa.

Surely Allah upholds the heavens and the earth lest they come to naught; and if they should come to naught, there is none who can uphold them after Him; surely He is the Forbearing, the Forgiving.[10]

For doubts of the heart

Say:

فَإِذَا قَرَأْتَ الْقُرْآنَ فَاسْتَعِذْ بِاللهِ مِنَ الشَّيْطَانِ الرَّجِيْمِ

Fa-idhaa qaraa-tal qur-aana fasta-i’dh billaahi minash shait’aanir rajeem.

So when you recite the Quran, seek refuge with Allah from the accursed Shaitan…

…and also recite the Surah Falaq and Surah Naas.

Amirul Momineen (a.s.) said: When Satan puts doubts in one of you, seek the refuge of Allah and recite by your tongue and heart:

آمَنْتُ بِاللهِ وَ رَسُوْلِهِ مُخْلِصًا لَهُ الدِّيْنِ.

Aamantu billaahi wa rasoolihi mukhlis’al lahuddeen.

I believe in Allah and His Messenger; being sincere to Him in obedience.[11]

For pain of the Heart

Write on a clean vessel or on a paper with saffron and rose water and drink its water:

يٰس يٰس يٰس يٰس يٰس يٰس يٰس كهيعص كهيعص كهيعص كهيعص كهيعص كهيعص كهيعص حمعسق حمعسق حمعسق حمعسق حمعسق حمعسق حمعسق.

Yaa seen Yaa seen Yaa seen Yaa seen Yaa seen Yaa seen Yaa seen.

He shall be cured by the leave of Allah.

Recite for seventeen days: Surah Inshirah once in the early morning and once at night.[12]

Also for Heart

Recite the following verses on water and drink it while keeping the hand on the heart and also write them and wear around the neck:

Bismillaahir rah’maanir rah’eem. Rabbannaa laa tuzigh quloobana ba’da idh hadaytanaa wa hab lanaa min ladunka rah’matan innaka antal wahhaab. rabbanaa innaka jaami’un naasi liyaumil laa raiba feehi innallaaha laa yukhliful meea’aad.

In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful. Our Lord! Make not our hearts to deviate after Thou hast guided us aright, and grant us from Thee mercy; surely Thou art the most liberal Giver. Our Lord! Surely Thou art the Gatherer of men on a day about which there is no doubt; surely Allah will not fail (His) promise.[13]

الَّذِيْنَ آمَنُوْا وَ تَطْمَئِنُّ قُلُوْبُهُمْ بِذِكْرِ اللهِ أَلاَ بِذِكْرِ اللهِ تَطْمَئِنُّ الْقُلُوْبُ. الَّذِيْنَ آمَنُوْا وَ عَمِلُوْا الصَّالِحَاتِ طُوبٰى لَهُمْ وَحُسْنُ مَئآبٍ.

Al ladheena aamanoo wa tat’ma-innul quloobuhum bidhikrillaahi alaa bidhikrillaahi tat’ma-innul quloobul ladheena aamanoo wa a’milus’ s’aalih’aati t’ooba lahum wa h’usnu ma-aab.

Those who believe and whose hearts are set at rest by the remembrance of Allah; now surely by Allah’s remembrance are the hearts set at rest. (As for) those who believe and do good, a good final state shall be theirs and a goodly return.[14]

لَئِنْ أَنْجَيْتَنَا مِنْ هٰذِهِ لَنَكُوْنَنَّ مِنَ الشَّاكِرِيْنَ.

La-in anjaitanaa min haadhihi lanakoonanna minash shaakireen.

If Thou dost deliver us from this, we will most certainly be of the grateful ones.[15]

For Palpitation

Recite the following verses three times and drink them at the end of the night at dawn and you will be cured:

الَّذِيْنَ آمَنُوْا وَ تَطْمَئِنُّ قُلُوْبُهُمْ بِذِكْرِ اللهِ أَلاَ بِذِكْرِ اللهِ تَطْمَئِنُّ الْقُلُوْبُ. لَئِنْ أَنْجَيْتَنَا مِنْ هٰذِهِ لَنَكُوْنَنَّ مِنَ الشَّاكِرِيْنَ.

“Al ladheena aamanoo wa tat’ma-innul quloobuhum bidhikrillaahi a’laa bidhikrillaahi tat’ma-innul quloob. alladheena aamanoo wa a’milus’ s’aalih’aati t’ooba lahum wa h’usnu ma-aab.” “La-in anjaitanaa min haadhihi lanakoonanna minash shaakireen.”

“Those who believe and whose hearts are set at rest by the remembrance of Allah; now surely by Allah’s remembrance are the hearts set at rest.”[16] “If Thou dost deliver us from this, we will most certainly be of the grateful ones.”[17]

For Quartan Fever

Write the following and fasten to his right arm:

بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمٰنِ الرَّحِيْمِ. وَ لَوْ أَنَّ قُرْآنًا سُيِّرَتْ بِهِ الْجِبَالُ أَوْ قُطِّعَتْ بِهِ اْلأَرْضُ أَوْ كُلِّمَ بِهِ الْمَوْتٰى بَلْ ِللهِ اْلأَمْرُ جَمِيْعًا.

Bismillaahir rah’maanir rah’eem. Wa lau anna qur-aanan suyyirat bihil jibaalu au qut’t’ia’t bihil arz”u au kullima bihil mautaa bilaahil amru jamee-a’a’.

In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful. And even if there were a Quran with which the mountains were made to pass away, or the earth were traveled over with it, or the dead were made to speak thereby; nay! the commandment is wholly Allah’s.[18]

يَا شَافِىُ يَا كَافِىُ يَا مُعَافِىُ وَ بِالْحَقِّ اَنْزَلْنَاهُ وَ بِالْحَقِّ نَزَلَ بِاسْمِ فُلاَنَ بْنَ فُلاَنَةَ بِسْمِ اللهِ وَ بِالله وَ مِنَ اللهِ ِ وَ إِلَی اللهِ وَ لاَ غَالِبَ اِلاَّ اللهُ.

Yaa shaafee yaa kaafee yaa mua’a’fee wa bil h’aqqi anzalnaahu wa bilh’aqqi nazala bismi fulaanabna fulaanata bismillaahi wa minallaahi wa ilallaahi wa laa ghaaliba illallaah.

O giver of cure O saver (sufficer) O giver of succor and by the right We revealed and by truth it came down by the name of so and so son of so and so in the name of Allah, and by Allah and from Allah and to Allah and there is none dominating, except Allah.[19]

Constriction of the chest

Recite for 17 days: Surah Inshirah twice everyday early morning and at night.[20]

Chest Pains

Recite these verses thrice on a quantity of water and give it to the patient. He will be cured; and apply some of it to his chest also.

قَالَ رَبِّ اشْرَحْ لِيْ صَدْرِيْ. وَ يَسِّرْ لِيْ أَمْرِيْ. وَ احْلُلْ عُقْدَةً مِّنْ لِّسَانِيْ. يَفْقَهُوْا قَوْلِيْ.

Qaala rabbish rah’lee s’adree wa yassirlee amree wah’lul u’qdatam millisaanee yafqahu qaulee.

He said: O my Lord! Expand my breast for me, And make my affair easy to me, And loose the knot from my tongue, (That) they may understand my word.([21]) ([22])

For Backache

Khizr bin Muhammad said: Our companions narrated that Fadala from Aban bin Usman from Abi Hamzah Thumali from Ja’far bin Muhammad (a.s.), who said: A man from Hamadan complained to Amirul Momineen (a.s.) regarding backache as he used to spend sleepless nights because of that. The Imam (a.s.) said: Put your hand at the place of pain and recite thrice:

وَ مَا كَانَ لِنَفْسٍ أَنْ تَمُوْتَ إِلاَّ بِإِذْنِ اللهِ كِتَابًا مُّؤَجَّلاً وَ مَنْ يُرِدْ ثَوَابَ الدُّنْيَا نُؤْتِهِ مِنْهَا وَ مَن يُرِدْ ثَوَابَ اْلآخِرَةِ نُؤْتِهِ مِنْهَا وَ سَنَجْزِيْ الشَّاكِرِيْنَ.

Wa maa kaana linafsin an tamoota illaa bi-idhnillaahi kitaabam mu-ajjalanw wa mayn yurid thawaabad dunyaa nu-tihi minhaa wa mayn yurid thawaabal aakhirati nu-tihi minhaa wa sanaj-zish shaakireen.

And a soul will not die but with the permission of Allah; the term is fixed; and whoever desires the reward of this world, I shall give him of it, and whoever desires the reward of the hereafter I shall give him of it, and I will reward the grateful.[23]

Then recite Surah Qadr seven times. You will be cured of it, if Allah wills.

Also for Backache

From al-Baqir (a.s.): Put your hand upon it and recite:

وَ مَا كَانَ لِنَفْسٍ أَنْ تَمُوْتَ إِلاَّ بِإِذْنِ اللهِ كِتَابًا مُّؤَجَّلاً وَ مَنْ يُرِدْ ثَوَابَ الدُّنْيَا نُؤْتِهِ مِنْهَا وَ مَن يُرِدْ ثَوَابَ اْلآخِرَةِ نُؤْتِهِ مِنْهَا وَ سَنَجْزِيْ الشَّاكِرِيْنَ.

Wa maa kaana linafsin an tamoota illaa bi-idhnillaahi kitaabam mu-ajjalanw wa mayn yurid thawaabad dunyaa nu-tihi minhaa wa MAYN YURID thawaabal aakhirati nu-tihi minhaa wa sanajzish shaakireen.

And a soul will not die but with the permission of Allah; the term is fixed; and whoever desires the reward of this world, I shall give him of it, and whoever desires the reward of the hereafter I shall give him of it, and I will reward the grateful.[24]

Then recite the Surah Qadr seven times.

Supplication of the ailing person

It is recommended for the patient that he recites and repeats:

لاَ اِلٰهَ اِلاَّ اللهُ وَهْدَهُ لاَ شَرِيْكَ لَهُ، لَهُ الْمُلْكَ وَ لَهُ الْحَمْدُ يُحْيِىْ وَ يُمِيْتُ وَ هُوَ حَىٌّ لاَ يَمُوْتُ، سُبْحَانَ اللهِ رَبِّ الْعِبَادِ وَ الْبِلاَدِ وَ الْحَمْدُ كَثِيْرًا طَيِّبًا مُبَارَكًا فِيْهِ عَلٰی كُلُّ حَالٍ وَ اللهُ اَكْبَرُ كَبِيْرًا كِبْرِيَاءَ رَبَّنَا وَ جَلاَلِهِ وَ قُدْرَتِهِ بِكُلِّ مَكاَنٍ، اَللَّهُمَّ إِنْ كُنْتَ اَمْرَضْتَنِيْ لِقَبْضِ رُوْحِىْ فِىْ مَرْضِىْ هٰذَا فَاجْعَلْ رُوْحِىْ فِىْ اَرْوَاحِ مَنْ سَبَقَتْ لَهُمْ مِنْكَ الْحُسْنٰي، وَ بَاعِدْنِيْ مِنَ النَّارِ كَمَا بَاعِدْتَ اَوْلَيَآئَكَ الَّذِيْنَ سَبَقَتْ لَهُمْ الْحُسْنٰي.

Laa ilaaha illallaahu wah’dahu laa shareeka lah. Lahul mulka wa lahul h’amdu yuh’yee wa yumeetu wa huwa h’ayyul laa yamootu sub-h’aanallaahi rabbil i’baadi wal bilaadi wal h’amdu katheeran t’ayyibam mubaarakan feehi a’laa kullu h’aalinw wallaahu akbaru kabeeran kibriyaa-a rabbanaa wa jalaalihi wa qudratihi bikulli makaan. Allaahumma inkunta amraz”tanee liqabz”i rooh’ee fee marz”ee haadhaa faj-a’r rooh’ee fee arwaah’i man sabqatlahum minkal h’usnaa. Wa baa-i’dnee min naari kamaa baa-i’dta auliyaa-akal ladheena sabqat lahumul h’usnaa.

There is no god except Allah, the One who has no partner. For Him is the kingdom and for Him is the Praise. He enlivens and He gives death and He is that living One that never dies. Glory be to Allah, the Lord of the people and the cities. And praise be to Allah an excessive and pure and blessed praise on Him in all conditions. And Allah is Great, Great is the Greatness of Our Lord! His majesty and power by all the places. O Allah if You have made me ill for capturing my soul in this illness of mine then include my soul among the souls that You prefer for Your rewards. And keep me away from the fire as You have distanced Your friends, who have got precedence in Your rewards.[25]

Another Supplication

From Abi Abdullah (a.s.) who said: Keep your hand on the painful spot and say:

اَللَّهُمَّ إِنِّيْ اَسْاَلُكَ بِحَقِّ الْقُرْآنِ الْعَظِيْمِ الَّذِىْ نَزَلَ بِهِ الرُّوْحُ اْلاَمِيْنُ وَ هُوَ عِنْدَكَ فِىْ اُمِّ الْكِتَابِ لَدَيْنَا لَعَلِىٌّ حَكِيْمٌ اَنْ تُشْفِيْنِيْ بِشَفَائِكَ وَ تُدَاوِيْنِيْ بِدَوَائِكَ وَ تُعَافِيْنِيْ مِنْ بَلاَئِكَ

Allaahumma innee as-aluka bih’aqqil qur-aanil a’z’eemilladhee nazala bihir rooh’ul ameenu wa huwa i’ndaka fee ummil kitaabi ladainaa la-a’leeyun h’akeemun antushfeenee bishifaa-ika wa tudaaweenee bidawaa-ika wa tua’a’feenee mim balaa-ik.

O Allah, indeed I ask You by the right of this Quran which You revealed on the trustworthy spirit and which is in the source of the book with You, for us. For the High and the Wise that You cure me by Your cure and treat me by Your remedies and save us from Your calamities.

Recite three times and invoke blessings on Muhammad and the people of his house.[26]

Also from him (a.s.) who said: Keep your hand on the painful location and say:

بِسْمِ اللهِ وَ بِاللهِ وَ مِنَ اللهِ وَ إِلَی اللهِ وَ مَا شَآءَ اللهُ مُحَمَّدٌ رَسُوْلُ اللهِ صَلَّی اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَ آلِهِ لاَ حَوْلَ وَ لاَ قُوَّةَ إِلاَّ بِاللهِ، اَللَّهُمَّ امْحِ عَنِّىْ مَا اَجِدَهُ.

Bismillaahi wa billaahi wa minallaahi wa ilallaahi wa maashaa-allaahu muh’ammadunr rasoolullaahi s’allallaahu a’laihi wa aalihi laa h’aula wa laa quwwata illaa billaah. allaahummamh’i a’nnee maa ajidah.

In the name of Allah, and by Allah and from Allah and to Allah and as Allah willed, Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and his family. There is neither power nor strength except by Allah. O Allah, remove from me that with which I am afflicted.

Then pass your hand over the painful spot three times.[27]

Supplication for Pain of Waist

A man questioned Muhammad al-Baqir (a.s.) saying: O son of the Messenger of Allah (s.a.w.s.), I suffer from severe pain in the waist and have treated it with many remedies, but it has not been cured. Al-Baqir said: What about the invocation of Amirul Mo-mineen? The man replied: And what is that, O son of the Messenger of Allah (s.a.w.s.)? He said: When you complete your prayers, put your hand on the place of prostration, stroke it, and say:

أَفَحَسِبْتُمْ أَنَّمَا خَلَقْنَاكُمْ عَبَثًا وَ أَنَّكُمْ إِلَيْنَا لاَ تُرْجَعُونَ. فَتَعَالَى اللهُ الْمَلِكُ الْحَقُّ لاَ إِلٰهَ إِلاَّ هُوَ رَبُّ الْعَرْشِ الْكَرِيْمِ. وَ مَنْ يَدْعُ مَعَ اللهِ إِلٰهًا آخَرَ لاَ بُرْهَانَ لَهُ بِهِ فَإِنَّمَا حِسَابُهُ عِنْدَ رَبِّهِ إِنَّهُ لاَ يُفْلِحُ الْكَافِرُوْنَ. وَ قُلْ رَّبِّ اغْفِرْ وَ ارْحَمْ وَ أَنْتَ خَيْرُ الرَّاحِمِيْنَ.

Afah’asibtum annamaa khalaqnaakum a’bathanw wa annakum ilainaa laa turjao’o’n. fata a’a’lallaahul malikul h’aqqu laa ilaaha illaa huwa Rabbul a’rshil kareem. Wa mayn yad-u’ ma-a’llaahi ilaahan aakhara laa burhaana lahu bihi fa-innamaa h’isaabuhu i’nda rabbih. Innahu laa yuflih’ul kaafiroon. Wa qur rabbighfir warh’am wa anta khairur raah’imeen.

What! Did you then think that We had created you in vain and that you shall not be returned to Us? So exalted be Allah, the True King; no god is there but He, the Lord of the honorable dominion. And whoever invokes with Allah another god-he has no proof of this-his reckoning is only with his Lord; surely the unbelievers shall not be successful. And say: O my Lord! Forgive and have mercy, and Thou art the best of the Merciful ones.[28]

The man said: I did that and the pain subsided, by the help of Allah.

Another supplication for Pain of waist

In Misbah of Kafami it is narrated from al-Baqir (a.s.), who said: When you finish Your prayers but your hand at the place of prostration and recite:

أَفَحَسِبْتُمْ أَنَّمَا خَلَقْنَاكُمْ عَبَثًا وَ أَنَّكُمْ إِلَيْنَا لاَ تُرْجَعُونَ. فَتَعَالَى اللهُ الْمَلِكُ الْحَقُّ لاَ إِلٰهَ إِلاَّ هُوَ رَبُّ الْعَرْشِ الْكَرِيْمِ. وَ مَنْ يَدْعُ مَعَ اللهِ إِلٰهًا آخَرَ لاَ بُرْهَانَ لَهُ بِهِ فَإِنَّمَا حِسَابُهُ عِنْدَ رَبِّهِ إِنَّهُ لاَ يُفْلِحُ الْكَافِرُوْنَ. وَ قُلْ رَّبِّ اغْفِرْ وَ ارْحَمْ وَ أَنْتَ خَيْرُ الرَّاحِمِيْنَ.

Afah’asibtum annamaa khalaqnaakum a’bathanw wa annakum ilainaa laa turjao’o’n. fata a’a’lallaahul malikul h’aqqu laa ilaaha illaa huwa Rabbul a’rshil kareem. Wa mayn yad-u’ ma-a’llaahi ilaahan aakhara laa burhaana lahu bihi fa-innamaa h’isaabuhu i’nda rabbih. Innahu laa yuflih’ul kaafiroon. Wa qur rabbighfir warh’am wa anta khairur raah’imeen.

What! Did you then think that We had created you in vain and that you shall not be returned to Us? So exalted be Allah, the True King; no god is there but He, the Lord of the honorable dominion. And whoever invokes with Allah another god-he has no proof of this-his reckoning is only with his Lord; surely the unbelievers shall not be successful. And say: O my Lord! Forgive and have mercy, and Thou art the best of the Merciful ones.[29]

For Pain of Navel

From as-Sadiq (a.s) who said: Put your hand on the pain and recite thrice:

وَ إِنَّهُ لَكِتَابٌ عَزِيْزٌ. لاَ يَأْتِيْهِ الْبَاطِلُ مِنْ بَيْنِ يَدَيْهِ وَ لاَ مِنْ خَلْفِهِ تَنْزِيْلٌ مِّنْ حَكِيْمٍ حَمِيْدٍ.

Wa innahu lakitaabun a’zeezul laa yaa-teehil baat’ilu mim baini yadaihi wa laa min khalfihi tanzeelum min h’akeemin h’ameed.

And most surely it is a Mighty Book: Falsehood shall not come to it from before it nor from behind it; a revelation from the Wise, the Praised One.[30]

Pain of the Bladder

From him (a.s.), who said: Seek protection for it with these verses, three times before you sleep and once when you awaken:

أَ لَمْ تَعْلَمْ أَنَّ اللهَ لَهُ مُلْكُ السَّمَاوَاتِ وَ اْلأَرْضِ وَ مَا لَكُمْ مِّنْ دُوْنِ اللهِ مِنْ وَلِيٍّ وَ لاَ نَصِيْرٍ.

Alamta’lam annallaaha lahu mulkus samaawaati wal arz”i wa maa lakum min doonillaahi minw waleeyinw wa laa nas’eer.

Do you not know that Allah’s is the kingdom of the heavens and the earth, and that besides Allah you have no guardian or helper?[31]

For Pain of the Genitals

From as-Sadiq (a.s.): Put your left hand on them and say three times:

بِسْمِ اللهِ وَ بِاللهِ بَلٰی مَنْ اَسْلَمَ وَجْهَهُ ِللهِ وَ هُوَ مُحْسِنٌ فَلَهُ اَجْرُهُ عِنْدَ رَبِّهِ، وَ لاَ خَوْفٌ عَلَيْهِمْ وَ لاَ هُمْ يَحْزَنُوْنَ.

Bismillaahi wa billaahi balaa man aslama waj-hahullaahi wa huwa muh’sinun falahu ajruhu i’nda rabbihi wa laa khaufun a’laihim wa laa hum yah’zanoon.

In the name of Allah and by Allah, Yes! Whoever submits himself entirely to Allah and he is the doer of good (to others) he has his reward from his Lord, and there is no fear for him nor shall he grieve.[32]

اَللَّهُمَّ إنِّیْ سَلَّمْتُ وَجهِىْ إِلَيْكَ وَ فَوَّضْتُ اَمرِىْ إِلَيْكَ، لاَ مَلْجَاَ وَ لاَ مَنْجٰی مِنْكَ إِلاَّ إِلَيْكَ، فَإِنَّكَ تُعَافِیُ إِنْ شَاءَ اللهُ تَعَالٰی.

Allaahumma innee salamtu waj-hee ilaika wa fawwaz”tu amree ilaika laa mulja-a wa laa manjaa minka ilaa ilaik. Fa-innaka tua’a’feeyu inshaa allaahu ta-a’a’laa.

O Allah, I have submitted myself to You and entrusted my affairs to You. There is no refuge or security from You except in You.

You will be cured, Allah, the Exalted, willing.

For Stomachache

A man came and said: O Amirul Momineen, I am having pain in my stomach. He said: Do you have a wife? He replied: Yes. He said: Ask her to gift you some money from her property, which is pure. Then buy with it honey then mix it in rain water, then drink it. I have heard Allah, Glorified be He, that He says in His book:

وَ نَزَّلْنَا مِنَ السَّمَآءِ مَآءً مُّبَارَكًا.

Wa nazzalnaa minas samaa-i maa-am mubaaraka.

And We send down from the cloud water abounding in good.[33]

and He said:

يَخْرُجُ مِنْ بُطُوْنِهَا شَرَابٌ مُّخْتَلِفٌ أَلْوَانُهُ فِيْهِ شِفَآءٌ لِلنَّاسِ

Yakhruju mim but’oonihaa sharaabum mukhtalifun alwaanuhu feehi shifaa-ul linnaas.

There comes forth from within it a beverage of many colors, in which there is healing for men.[34]

And He said:

فَإِن طِبْنَ لَكُمْ عَنْ شَيْءٍ مِّنْهُ نَفْسًا فَكُلُوْهُ هَنِيْئًا مَّرِيْئًا

Fa-in t’ibna lakum a’n shai-im minhu nafsan fakuloohu hanee-am maree-aa.

But if they of themselves be pleased to give up to you a portion of it, then eat it with enjoyment and with wholesome result.[35]

Thus when blessings, cure, enjoyment and wholesomeness come together you will be cured, if Allah wills. He said: I did it and was cured.[36]

Supplication for Grips

A man complained to al-Imam al-Kazim (a.s.) about grips in his abdomen and he (a.s.) said to him: Take some water and recite the following verses on it:

يُرِيْدُ اللهُ بِكُمُ الْيُسْرَ وَ لاَ يُرِيْدُ بِكُمُ الْعُسْرَ.

Yureedullaahu bikumul yusra wa laa yureedu bikumul u’sr.

Allah desires ease for you, and He does not desire for you difficulty.[37]

…three times. Then say:

أَوَ لَمْ يَرَ الَّذِيْنَ كَفَرُوْا أَنَّ السَّمَاوَاتِ وَ اْلأَرْضَ كَانَتَا رَتْقًا فَفَتَقْنَاهُمَا وَ جَعَلْنَا مِنَ الْمَآءَ كُلَّ شَيْءٍ حَيٍّ أَفَلاَ يُؤْمِنُوْنَ.

Awalam yaralladheena kafaroo annas samaawaati wal arz”a kaanataa ratqan fafataqnaahumaa wa ja-a’lnaa minal maa-i kulla shai-in h’ayyin afalaa yu-minoon.

Do not those who disbelieve see that the heavens and the earth were closed up, but We have opened them; and We have made of water everything living, will they not then believe?[38]

Then drink this water and pass your hand over your belly.[39]

An Invocation for all Illnesses

Muhammad bin Ismail narrated from Muhammad bin Khalid Abu Abdullah from Sa’dan bin Muslim from Sa’d al-Mawla, who said: Abu Abdillah (a.s.) dictated to us the invocation called “the comprehensive”. [it is]:

بِسْم اللهِ الرَّحْمٰنِ الرَّحِيْمِ، بِسْمِ اللهِ الَّذِىْ لاَ يَضُرُّ مَعَ اِسْمِهِ شَىْءٌ فِىْ اْلاَرْضِ وَ لاَ فِىْ السَّمَآءِ، اَللَّهُمَّ إِنِّيْ اَسْاَلُكَ بِاسْمِكَ الطَّاهِرُ الْمُطَهَّرِ الْمَطَهَّرِ الْمُقَدَّسِ السَّلاَمُ الْمُؤْمِنُ الْمُهَيْمِنُ الْمُبَارَكُ الَّذِىْ مَنْ سَاَلَكَ بِهِ اَعْطَيْتَهُ وَ مَنْ دَعَاكَ بِهِ اَجَبْتَهُ اَنْ تُصَلِّىَ عَلٰی مُحَمَّدٍ وَ آلِ مُحَمَّدٍ وَ اَنْ تُعَافِيَنِيْ مِمَّا اَجِدُ فِىْ سَمْعِىْ وَ بَصَرِىْ وَ فِىْ يَدِىْ وَ رِجْلِىْ وَ فِىْ شَعْرِ وَ بَشَرِىْ وَ فِىْ بَطَنِيْ إِنَّكَ لَطِيْفٌ لِمَا تَشَآءُ وَ اَنْتَ عَلٰی كُلِّ شَىْءٍ قَدِيْرٌ.

Bismillaahir rah’maanir rah’eem. Bismillaahilladhee laa yaz”urru ma-a’ ismihi shai-un fil arz”i wa laa fee samaa-. Allahumma innee as-aluka bismikat’ t’ahirul mut’ahharil mut’ahharil muqaddas. As-salaam mu-minul muhaimanul mubaarakil ladhee man sa-alaka bihi aa’t’aitahu wa man da’-a’aka bihi ajtbahu antus’allee a’laa muh’ammadinw wa aali muh’ammad. Wa an tua’aafeeni mimma ajido fee same’e’ wa bas’aree wa yadee rijlee wa fee sha’ri wa basharee wa fee bat’anee innka lat’eefu limaa tashaa-u wa anta a’laa kulli shai-in qadeer.

In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful. In the name of Allah of Allah with Whose name nothing in the earth or in the heavens causes harm. O Allah, I ask You by Your Pure, Chaste, Immaculate, Holy, Perfect, Preserving, Protective, and Blessed name, by Which whoever asks, You grant him, and by which whoever calls You, You answer him, to bless Muhammad and the family of Muhammad and to cure me of what I suffer in my hearing and my sight, my hand and my foot, my hair and my skin, and my belly. Surely You are Gracious to whomsoever You will, and You are Powerful over all things.

Supplication for legs

From him (a.s.): Recite upon them seven times:

وَ اتْلُ مَا أُوْحِيَ إِلَيْكَ مِنْ كِتَابِ رَبِّكَ لاَ مُبَدِّلَ لِكَلِمَاتِهِ وَ لَن تَجِدَ مِنْ دُوْنِهِ مُلْتَحَدًا

Watlu maa ooh’iya ilaika min kitaabi rabbika laa mubaddila ilkalimaatihi wa lan tajida min doonihi multah’adaa.

And recite what has been revealed to you of the Book of your Lord, there is none who can alter His words; and you shall not find any refuge besides Him.[40]

Supplication for pain of feet

From al-Baqir (a.s.): Read upon them from the beginning of Surah Fath:

بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمٰنِ الرَّحِيْمِ. إِنَّا فَتَحْنَا لَكَ فَتْحًا مُّبِيْنًا. لِيَغْفِرَ لَكَ اللهُ مَا تَقَدَّمَ مِنْ ذَنْبِكَ وَ مَا تَأَخَّرَ وَ يُتِمَّ نِعْمَتَهُ عَلَيْكَ وَ يَهْدِيَكَ صِرَاطًا مُّسْتَقِيمًا. وَ يَنصُرَكَ اللهُ نَصْرًا عَزِيْزًا. هُوَ الَّذِيْ أَنْزَلَ السَّكِينَةَ فِيْ قُلُوْبِ الْمُؤْمِنِيْنَ لِيَزْدَادُوْا إِيْمَانًا مَّعَ إِيْمَانِهِمْ وَ ِللهِ جُنُوْدُ السَّمَاوَاتِ وَاْلأَرْضِ وَ كَانَ اللهُ عَلِيْمًا حَكِيْمًا. لِيُدْخِلَ الْمُؤْمِنِيْنَ وَ الْمُؤْمِنَاتِ جَنَّاتٍ تَجْرِيْ مِنْ تَحْتِهَا اْلأَنْهَارُ خَالِدِيْنَ فِيْهَا وَ يُكَفِّرَ عَنْهُمْ سَيِّئَاتِهِمْ وَ كَانَ ذٰلِكَ عِنْدَ اللهِ فَوْزًا عَظِيْمًا. وَ يُعَذِّبَ الْمُنَافِقِيْنَ وَ الْمُنَافِقَاتِ وَ الْمُشْرِكِيْنَ وَ الْمُشْرِكَاتِ الظَّانِّيْنَ بِاللهِ ظَنَّ السَّوْءِ عَلَيْهِمْ دَائِرَةُ السَّوْءِ وَ غَضِبَ اللهُ عَلَيْهِمْ وَ لَعَنَهُمْ وَ أَعَدَّ لَهُمْ جَهَنَّمَ وَ سَائَتْ مَصِيْرًا. وَ ِللهِ جُنُوْدُ السَّمَاوَاتِ وَ اْلأَرْضِ وَ كَانَ اللهُ عَزِيْزًا حَكِيْمًا.

Bismillaahir rah’maanir rah’eem. Innaa fatah’nalaka fat’ham mubeenaa. Liyaghfira lakallaahu maa taqaddama min dhambika wa maa ta-akhkhara wa yutimma ni’matahu a’laika wa yahdiyaka s’iraatam mustaqeemaa. Wa yans’urakallaahu nas’ran azeezaa. Huwalladhee anzalas sakeenata fee quloobil mu-mineena liyazdaadu eemaanam ma-a’ eemaanihim wa lillaahi junoodus samaawaati wal arz”i, wa kaanallaahu a’leeman h’akeemaa. Liyudkhilal mu-mineena wal mu-minaati jannaatin tajreemin tah’tihal anhaaru khaalideena feehaa wa yukaffir a’nhum sayyi-aatihim, wa kaana dhaalika i’ndallaahi fauzan a’z’eemaa. Wa yua’dhdhibal munafiqeena wal munaafiqaati wal mushrikeen wal mushrikaatiz’ z’aaanneena billaahi z’annas sau-i, a’laihim daa-iratus sau-i wa ghaz”iballaahu a’laihim wa laa’nahum wa aa’ddalahum jahannama wa saa-at mas’eeraa. Wa lillaahi junoodus samaawaati wal arz”i, wa kaanallaahu a’zeezan h’akeeman.

In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful. Surely We have given to you a clear victory, That Allah may forgive your community their past faults and those to follow and complete His favor to you and keep you on a right way, And that Allah might help you with a mighty help. He it is Who sent down tranquility into the hearts of the believers that they might have more of faith added to their faith-and Allah’s are the hosts of the heavens and the earth, and Allah is Knowing, Wise. That He may cause the believing men and the believing women to enter gardens beneath which rivers flow to abide therein and remove from them their evil; and that is a grand achievement with Allah; And (that) He may punish the hypocritical men and the hypocritical women, and the polytheistic men and the polytheistic women, the entertainers of evil thoughts about Allah. On them is the evil turn, and Allah is wroth with them and has cursed them and prepared hell for them, and evil is the resort. And Allah’s are the hosts of the heavens and the earth; and Allah is Mighty, Wise.[41]

Supplication for Pain of Knee[42]

From him (a.s.): Say after the prayers:

يَا اَجْوَدَ مَنْ اَعْطٰی، وَ يَا خَيْرَ مَنْ سُئِلَ، وَ يَا اَرْحَمَ مَنِ اسْتَرْحَمَ اِرْحَمْ ضَعْفِىْ وَ قِلَّةَ حِيْلَتِىْ وَ عَافِنِيْ مِنْ وَجَعِىْ.

Yaa ajwada man aa’t’aa. Yaa khaira man su-ila wa yaa arh’ama man astarh’ama irh’am z”a’fee wa qillata h’eelatee wa a’a’finee minw waja-e’e’.

O more generous of those who bestow and O best of those who are asked O more merciful of those asked for mercy. Have mercy on my weakness and the lack of my avenues and save me from my pain.

Supplication for pain of the thigh[43]

From him (a.s.): He should be seated in a tub of hot water and keeping his hand on the pain say:

أَوَ لَمْ يَرَ الَّذِيْنَ كَفَرُوْا أَنَّ السَّمَاوَاتِ وَ اْلأَرْضَ كَانَتَا رَتْقًا فَفَتَقْنَاهُمَا وَ جَعَلْنَا مِنَ الْمَاءِ كُلَّ شَيْءٍ حَيٍّ أَفَلاَ يُؤْمِنُوْنَ.

Awalam yaralladheena kafaroo annas samaawaati wal arz”a kaanataa ratqan fafataqnaahumaa wa ja-a’lnaa minal maa-i kulla shai-in h’ayyin afalaa yu-minoon.

Do not those who disbelieve see that the heavens and the earth were closed up, but We have opened them; and We have made of water everything living, will they not then believe?[44]

From the book of Al-Ikhtiyarat of Allamah Majlisi (r.a.) regarding illness in the days of the week:

Calculate the numerical value of the name of the patient and the name of his/her mother and reduce from the total 35. Then ask the patient from which day he or she fell ill. Then if one is remaining, he would be cured. If two remains, the illness will prolong. If three remains, the patient will expire.

If the illness is of Saturday and if three remains he will be cured and if one remains he will be cured after prolonged illness.

If the illness is of Sunday and if one remains, he will be cured and if 2 remains, his illness will be prolonged and if three remains, he will expire.

Verses of Cure

As regards the verses of cure, one who writes them and carries them has great position. He will be cured of all maladies and the verse are as follows:

وَ يَشْفِ صُدُوْرَ قَوْمٍ مُّؤْمِنِيْنَ.

Wa yashfi s’udoora qaumim mu-mineena

...and heal the hearts of a believing people.[1]

وَ شِفَاءٌ لِّمَا فِيْ الصُّدُوْرِ.

wa shifaa-ul limaa fis’ s’udoor.

…and a healing for what is in the breasts.[2]

يَخْرُجُ مِنْ بُطُوْنِهَا شَرَابٌ مُّخْتَلِفٌ أَلْوَانُهُ فِيْهِ شِفَآءٌ لِلنَّاسِ.

Yakhruju mim but’oonihaa sharaabum mukhtalifun alwaanuhu feehi shifaa-ul linnaas.

 

There comes forth from within it a beverage of many colors, in which there is healing for men;[3]

وَ نُنَزِّلُ مِنَ الْقُرْآنِ مَا هُوَ شِفَآءٌ وَ رَحْمَةٌ لِّلْمُؤْمِنِيْنَ.

 

Wa nunazzilu minal qur-aani maa huwa shifaa-unw wa rah’matul lil mu-mineen.

And We reveal of the Quran that which is a healing and a mercy to the believers,[4]

وَ إِذَا مَرِضْتُ فَهُوَ يَشْفِيْنِ.

Wa idhaa mariz”tu fahuwa yashfeen.

And when I am sick, then He restores me to health;[5]

قُلْ هُوَ لِلَّذِيْنَ آمَنُوْا هُدًى وَ شِفَآءٌ.

Qul huwa lilladheena aamanoo hudanw wa shifaa.

Say: It is to those who believe a guidance and a healing;[6]

ذٰلِكَ تَخْفِيْفٌ مِّنْ رَّبِّكُمْ وَرَحْمَةٌ.

Dhaalika takhfeefum min rabbikum wa rah’mah.

…this is an alleviation from your Lord and a mercy;[7]

اَلآنَ خَفَّفَ اللهُ عَنْكُمْ.

Al aana khaffafallaahu a’nkum.

For the present Allah has made light your burden,[8]

يُرِيْدُ اللهُ أَنْ يُخَفِّفَ عَنْكُمْ.

Yureedullaahu anyukhaffifa a’nkum.

Allah desires that He should make light your burdens,[9]

قُلْنَا يَا نَارُ كُوْنِيْ بَرْدًا وَ سَلاَمًا عَلٰى إِبْرَاهِيْمَ.

Qulnaa yaa naaru koonee bardanw wa salaaman a’laa ibraaheem.

We said: O fire! Be a comfort and peace to Ibrahim;[10]

وَ أَرَادُوْا بِهِ كَيْدًا فَجَعَلْنَاهُمُ اْلأَخْسَرِيْنَ.

Wa araadu bihi kaidan faja’alnaahumul akhsareen.

And they desired a war on him, but We made them the greatest losers.[11]

أَلَمْ تَرَ إِلٰى رَبِّكَ كَيْفَ مَدَّ الظِّلَّ وَ لَوْ شَاءَ لَجَعَلَهُ سَاكِنًا.

alam taraa ilaa rabbika kaifa maddaz’ z’illa wa lau shaa-a laja-a’lahu saakinaa.

Have you not considered (the work of) your Lord, how He extends the shade? And if He had pleased He would certainly have made it stationary;[12]

 

وَ لَهُ مَا سَكَنَ فِيْ اللَّيْلِ وَ النَّهَارِ وَ هُوَ السَّمِيْعُ الْعَلِيْمُ.

Wa lahu maa sakana fil laili nannahaari wa huwas sameeu’l a’leem.

And to Him belongs whatever dwells in the night and the day; and He is the Hearing, the Knowing.[13]

بِاَلْفِ لاَ حَوْلَ وَلاَ قُوَّةَ إِلاَّ بِاللهِ الْعَلِیِّ الْعَظِيْمِ

Bi-alfi laa h’aula wa laa quwwata illaa billaahil a’leeyil a’z’eem.

وَ إِذِ اسْتَسْقٰى مُوْسٰى لِقَوْمِهِ فَقُلْنَا اِضْرِبْ بِّعَصَاكَ الْحَجَرَ فَانْفَجَرَتْ مِنْهُ اثْنَتَا عَشْرَةَ عَيْناً قَدْ عَلِمَ كُلُّ أُنَاسٍ مَّشْرَبَهُمْ كُلُواْ وَ اشْرَبُواْ مِنْ رِّزْقِ اللهِ وَ لاَ تَعْثَوْا فِيْ اْلأَرْضِ مُفْسِدِيْنَ.

Wa idhis tasqaa moosaa liqaumihi faqul naz”rib bia’s’aakal h’ajara fanfajarat minhuthnata a’shrata a’inaa. Qad a’lima kullu unaasim mashrabahum. Kuloo washraboo minr rizqillaahi wa laa ta’thau fil arz”i mufsideen.

And when Musa prayed for drink for his people, We said: Strike the rock with your staff. So there gushed from it twelve springs; each tribe knew its drinking place: Eat and drink of the provisions of Allah and do not act corruptly in the land, making mischief.[1]

أَوَ لَمْ يَرَ الَّذِيْنَ كَفَرُوْا أَنَّ السَّمَاوَاتِ وَ اْلأَرْضَ كَانَتَا رَتْقًا فَفَتَقْنَاهُمَا وَ جَعَلْنَا مِنَ الْمَاءِ كُلَّ شَيْءٍ حَيٍّ أَفَلاَ يُؤْمِنُوْنَ.

Awalam yaralladheena kafaroo annas samaawaati wal arz”a kaanataa ratqan fafataqnaahumaa wa ja-a’lnaa minal maa-i kulli shai-in h’ayyin afalaa yu-minoon.

Do not those who disbelieve see that the heavens and the earth were closed up, but We have opened them; and We have made of water everything living, will they not then believe?[2]

For serious ailments

Write the ‘verse of light’ with honey and mix it with olive oil and drink it in the morning on an empty stomach and repeat this everyday without a break for fourteen days.

اَللهُ نُوْرُ السَّمٰوَاتِ وَ اْلأَرْضِ مَثَلُ نُوْرِهِ كَمِشْكَاةٍ فِيْهَا مِصْبَاحٌ اَلْمِصْبَاحُ فِيْ زُجَاجَةٍ اَلزُّجَاجَةُ كَأَنَّهَا كَوْكَبٌ دُرِّيٌّ يُوْقَدُ مِنْ شَجَرَةٍ مُّبَارَكَةٍ زَيْتُوْنَةٍ لاَ شَرْقِيَّةٍ وَ لاَ غَرْبِيَّةٍ يَكَادُ زَيْتُهَا يُضِيْءُ وَ لَوْ لَمْ تَمْسَسْهُ نَارٌ نُّوْرٌ عَلٰى نُورِ يَهْدِيْ اللهُ لِنُوْرِهِ مَنْ يَشَآءُ وَ يَضْرِبُ اللهُ اْلأَمْثَالَ لِلنَّاسِ وَ اللهُ بِكُلِّ شَيْءٍ عَلِيْمٌ.

Allaahu Noorus samaawaati wal arz”i mathalu noorihi kamishkaatin fee haa mis’baah’un al mis’baahu fee zujaajatiz zujaajatu ka-annahaa kaukabun durreeyun yooqadu min shajaratim mubaarakatin zaitoonatil laa sharqeeyatin wa laa ghareeyatin yakaadu zaituhaa yuz”ee-u wa lau lam tamsas-hu naarun noorun a’laa noori yahdillaahu linoorihi mayn yashaa-u wa yaz”ribullaahul amthaala linnaasi wallaahu bikulli shai-in a’leem.

Allah is the light of the heavens and the earth; a likeness of His light is as a niche in which is a lamp, the lamp is in a glass, (and) the glass is as it were a brightly shining star, lit from a blessed olive-tree, neither eastern nor western, the oil whereof almost gives light though fire touch it not- light upon light- Allah guides to His light whom He pleases, and Allah sets forth parables for men, and Allah is Cognizant of all things.[3]

Wa jaa-a min aqs’al madeenati rajuluyn yasa’a’ qaala yaa qaumit tabiu’l mursaleenat tabio’o’ mal laa yas-alukum ajranw wa hum muhtadoon.

Qaala rabbish rah’lee s’adree wa yassirlee amree wah’lul u’qdatam millisaanee yafqahu qaulee.

Wa lau nashaa-u lat’amsnaa a’laa aa’yunihim fastabaqus’ s’iraata fa-annaa yubs’iroon.

Wa idhaa massal insaanaz” z”urru da-a’a’naa lijambihi au qaa-i’dan au qaa-Imam falamaa kashafnaa a’nhu z”urrahu marra ka-al lam yad-u’naa ilaa z”urrim massahu kadhaalika zuyyina lil musrifeena maa kaanoo ya’maloon.

And when affliction touches a man, he calls on Us, whether lying on his side or sitting or standing; but when We remove his affliction from him, he passes on as though he had never called on Us on account of an affliction that touched him; thus that which they do is made fair-seeming to the extravagant.[8]

Wa maa qadarullaaha h’aqqa qadrihi wal arz”u jameea’n qabz”atuhu yaumal qiyaamati was samaawaatu mat’weeyaatum biyameenih. Sub-h’aanahu wa taa’a’la a’mma yushrikoon.

“Qumillaila illaa qaleel. Nis’fahu awinqus’ minhu qaleelaa. Auzid a’laihi wa rattilil qur-aana tarteelaa. Innaa sanulqee a’laika qaulan thaqeelaa. Inna naashi-atal laili hiya ashaddu wat’-anw wa aqwamu qeelaa. Inna laka finnahaari sab-h’an t’aweelaa. Wadhkurisma rabbika wa tabattal ilaihi tabteelaa.” “Qum fa-andhir wa rabbaka fakabbir. Wa thiyaabaka fat’ahhir. Warrujza fahjur wa laa tamnun tastakthiru wa lirabbika fas’bir.”

“Rise to pray in the night except a little, Half of it, or lessen it a little, Or add to it, and recite the Quran as it ought to be recited. Surely We will make to light upon you a weighty Word. Surely the rising by night is the firmest way to tread and the best corrective of speech. Surely you have in the daytime a long occupation. And remember the name of your Lord and devote yourself to Him with (exclusive) devotion.”[10] “Arise and warn, And your Lord do magnify, And your garments do purify, And uncleanness do shun, And bestow not favors that you may receive again with increase, And for the sake of your Lord, be patient.”[11]

Innalladheena sabaqat lahum minal h’usnaa oolaa-ika a’nhaa mub-a’doon. Laa yasmao’o’na h’aseesahaa wa hum fee mashtahat anfusuhum khaalidoon. Laa yah’zunuhumul fazau’l akbaru wa tatalaqqaahumul malaa-ikatu haadhaa yaumukumul ladhee kuntum tooa’doon.

“Surely (as for) those for whom the good has already gone forth from Us, they shall be kept far off from it; They will not hear its faintest sound, and they shall abide in that which their souls long for. The great fearful event shall not grieve them, and the angels shall meet them: This is your day which you were promised.”[12]

Wa maa kaana linafsin antamoota illa bi-idhnillaahi kitaabam mu-ajjilanw wa MAYN YURID thawaabal aakhirati nu-tihi minhaa. Wa sanajzish shaakireen.

“And a soul will not die but with the permission of Allah; the term is fixed; and whoever desires the reward of this world, I shall give him of it, and whoever desires the reward of the hereafter I shall give him of it, and I will reward the grateful.”[13]

Wa lau anna qur-aanan suyyirat bihil jibaalu au qut’t’ia’t bihil arz”u au kullima bihil mautaa bilillaahil amru jameea’a’.

And even if there were a Quran with which the mountains were made to pass away, or the earth were traveled over with it, or the dead were made to speak thereby; nay! the commandment is wholly Allah’s.[14]

وَ مَنْ يَتَوَكَّلْ عَلَى اللهِ فَهُوَ حَسْبُهُ إِنَّ اللهَ بَالِغُ أَمْرِهِ قَدْ جَعَلَ اللهُ لِكُلِّ شَيْءٍ قَدْرًا.

wa mayn yatawakkal a’lallaahi fahuwa has’buhu innallaaha baalighu amrihi qad ja-a’lallaahu likulli shai-in qadraa.

…and whoever trusts in Allah, He is sufficient for him; surely Allah attains His purpose; Allah indeed has appointed a measure for everything.[15]

وَ نُنَزِّلُ مِنَ الْقُرْآنِ مَا هُوَ شِفَآءٌ وَ رَحْمَةٌ لِّلْمُؤْمِنِيْنَ.

Wa nunazzilu minal qur-aani maa huwa shifaa-unw wa rah’matul lil mu-mineen.

And We reveal of the Quran that which is a healing and a mercy to the believers,[16]

فاللهُ خَيْرٌ حَافِظًا وَ هُوَ اَرْحَمُ الرَّاحِمِيْنَ.

Fallaahu khairun h’aafiz’an wa huwa arh’amur raah’imeen.

…but Allah is the best Keeper, and He is the best of the merciful ones.[17]

وَ تُخْرِجُ الْحَيَّ مِنَ الْمَيِّتِ وَ تُخْرِجُ الْمَيِّتَ مِنَ الْحَيِّ وَ تَرْزُقُ مَنْ تَشَآءُ بِغَيْرِ حِسَابٍ.

Tukhrijul h’ayya minal mayyiti wa tukhrijul mayyita minal h’ayy. Wa tarzuqu man tashaa-u bighairi h’isaab.

…and Thou bringest forth the dead from the living, and Thou givest sustenance to whom Thou pleasest without measure.[18]

يُخْرِجُ الْحَيَّ مِنَ الْمَيِّتِ وَ مُخْرِجُ الْمَيِّتِ مِنَ الْحَيِّ ذٰلِكُمُ اللهُ فَأَنَّى تُؤْفَكُوْنَ.

Yukhrijul h’ayya minal mayyiti wa mukhrijul mayyiti minal h’ay. Dhaalikumullaahu fa-annaa tu-fakoon.

He brings forth the living from the dead and He is the bringer forth of the dead from the living; that is Allah! How are you then turned away.[19]

قُلْ مَنْ يَرْزُقُكُمْ مِّنَ السَّمَآءِ وَ اْلأَرْضِ أَمَّنْ يَمْلِكُ السَّمْعَ وَ اْلأَبْصَارَ وَ مَنْ يُخْرِجُ الْحَيَّ مِنَ الْمَيِّتِ وَ يُخْرِجُ الْمَيِّتَ مِنَ الْحَيِّ وَ مَنْ يُدَبِّرُ اْلأَمْرَ فَسَيَقُوْلُوْنَ اللهُ فَقُلْ أَفَلاَ تَتَّقُوْنَ.

Qul mayn yarzuqukum minas samaa-i wal arz’i ammayn yamlikus sam-a’ wal abs’aara wa mayn yukhrijul h’ayya minal mayyiti wa yukhrijul mayyita minal h’ay. Wa mayn yudabbirul amra fasayaqooloonallaahu faqul afalaa tattaqoon.

Say: Who gives you sustenance from the heaven and the earth? Or Who controls the hearing and the sight? And Who brings forth the living from the dead, and brings forth the dead from the living? And Who regulates the affairs? Then they will say: Allah. Say then: Will you not then guard (against evil)?[20]

يُخْرِجُ الْحَيَّ مِنَ الْمَيِّتِ وَ يُخْرِجُ الْمَيِّتَ مِنَ الْحَيِّ وَ يُحْيِيْ اْلأَرْضَ بَعْدَ مَوْتِهَا وَ كَذٰلِكَ تُخْرَجُوْنَ.

Yukhrijul h’ayya minal mayyiti wa yukhrijul mayyita minal h’ay. Wa yuh’yil arz”a ba’da mautihaa wa kadhaalika tukhrajoon.

He brings forth the living from the dead and brings forth the dead from the living, and gives life to the earth after its death, and thus shall you be brought forth.[21]

Wa lau anna qur-aanan suyyirat bihil jibaalu au qut’t’ia’t bihil arz”u au kullima bihil mautaa ballillaahil amru jameea’a’.

And even if there were a Quran with which the mountains were made to pass away, or the earth were traveled over with it, or the dead were made to speak thereby; nay! the commandment is wholly Allah’s…[22]

لاَ يُصَدَّعُوْنَ عَنْهَا وَ لاَ يُنْزِفُوْنَ.

laa yus’addao’o’na a’nhaa wa laa yunzifoon.

They shall not be affected with headache thereby, nor shall they get exhausted…[23]

تَكَادُ السَّمٰوَاتُ يَتَفَطَّرْنَ مِنْهُ وَ تَنْشَقُّ اْلأَرْضُ وَ تَخِرُّ الْجِبَالُ هَدًّا.

Takaadus samaawaatu yatafat’t’arna minhu wa tanshaqqul arz”u wa takhirrul jibaalu hadda.

The heavens may almost be rent thereat, and the earth cleave asunder, and the mountains fall down in pieces…[24]

وَ جَعَلْنَا مِنْ بَيْنِ أَيْدِيْهِمْ سَدًّا وَ مِنْ خَلْفِهِمْ سَدًّا فَأَغْشَيْنَاهُمْ فَهُمْ لاَ يُبْصِرُوْنَ.

Wa ja-a’lnaa mim baini aideehim saddanw wa min khalfihim saddan fa-aghshainaahum fahum laa yubs’iroon.

And We have made before them a barrier and a barrier behind them, then We have covered them over so that they do not see.[25]

وَ قِيْلَ يَا أَرْضُ ابْلَعِيْ مَائَكِ وَ يَا سَمَآءُ أَقْلِعِيْ وَ غِيْضَ الْمَاءُ وَ قُضِيَ اْلأَمْرُ وَ اسْتَوَتْ عَلَى الْجُودِيِّ وَ قِيْلَ بُعْداً لِّلْقَوْمِ الظَّالِمِيْنَ.

Wa qeela yaa arz”ublae’e’ maa-aki wa yaasamaa-u aqlie’e’ wa gheez”al maa-u wa quz”iyal amru was tawat a’lal joodeeyi wa qeela bu’dal lil qaumiz’ z’aalimeen.

And it was said: O earth, swallow down your water, and O cloud, clear away; and the water was made to abate and the affair was decided, and the ark rested on the Judi, and it was said: Away with the unjust people.[26]

يَدُ اللهِ فَوْقَ أَيْدِيْهِمْ فَمَنْ نَّكَثَ فَإِنَّمَا يَنْكُثُ عَلٰى نَفْسِهِ وَ مَنْ أَوْفٰى بِمَا عَاهَدَ عَلَيْهُ اللهَ فَسَيُؤْتِيْهِ أَجْرًا عَظِيْمًا.

Yadullaahi fauqa aideehim faman nakatha fa-innamaa yankuthu a’laa nafsihi wa man aufa bimaa a’a’hada a’laihulaaha fasayu-teehi ajran a’z’eemaa.

…the hand of Allah is above their hands. Therefore whoever breaks (his faith), he breaks it only to the injury of his own soul, and whoever fulfills what he has covenanted with Allah, He will grant him a mighty reward.[27]

وَ مَنْ كَانَ مَرِيْضًا أَوْ عَلٰى سَفَرٍ فَعِدَّةٌ مِّنْ أَيَّامٍ أُخَرَ يُرِيْدُ اللهُ بِكُمُ الْيُسْرَ وَ لاَ يُرِيْدُ بِكُمُ الْعُسْرَ وَ لِتُكْمِلُواْ الْعِدَّةَ وَ لِتُكَبِّرُواْ اللهَ عَلٰى مَا هَدَاكُمْ وَ لَعَلَّكُمْ تَشْكُرُوْنَ.

Wa man kaana mareez”an au a’laa safarin fa-i’ddatum min ayyaamin ukhara yureedullaahu bikumul yusra wa laa yureedu bikumul u’sra wa litukmilul i’ddata wa litukabbirullaaha a’laa maa hadaakum wa la-a’llakum yashkuroon.

…and whoever is sick or upon a journey, then (he shall fast) a (like) number of other days; Allah desires ease for you, and He does not desire for you difficulty, and (He desires) that you should complete the number and that you should exalt the greatness of Allah for His having guided you and that you may give thanks.[28]

قُلْ مَنْ رَّبُّ السَّمٰوَاتِ وَ اْلأَرْضِ قُلِ اللهُ قُلْ أَفَاتَّخَذْتُمْ مِّنْ دُوْنِهِ أَوْلِيَآءَ لاَ يَمْلِكُوْنَ ِلأَنفُسِهِمْ نَفْعًا وَ لاَ ضَرًّا قُلْ هَلْ يَسْتَوِي اْلأَعْمٰى وَ الْبَصِيْرُ أَمْ هَلْ تَسْتَوِيْ الظُّلُمَاتُ وَ النُّوْرُ أَمْ جَعَلُواْ ِللهِ شُرَكَاءَ خَلَقُواْ كَخَلْقِهِ فَتَشَابَهَ الْخَلْقُ عَلَيْهِمْ قُلِ اللهُ خَالِقُ كُلِّ شَيْءٍ وَ هُوَ الْوَاحِدُ الْقَهَّارُ.

Qulillaahu khaaliqu kulli shai-inw wa huwal waah’idul qahhaar.

Say: Who is the Lord of the heavens and the earth? Say: Allah. Say: Do you take Then besides Him guardians who do not control any profit or harm for themselves? Say: Are the blind and the seeing alike? Or can the darkness and the light be equal? Or have they set up with Allah associates who have created creation like His, so that what is created became confused to them? Say: Allah is the Creator of all things, and He is the One, the Supreme.[29]

For Headache

Write the following verse with musk and saffron on a paper on the last part of Friday in the month of Ramadan and keep it for times of need and wear it at the time of pain. The verse is as follows:

أَ لَمْ تَرَ إِلٰى رَبِّكَ كَيْفَ مَدَّ الظِّلَّ وَ لَوْ شَآءَ لَجَعَلَهُ سَاكِنًا ثُمَّ جَعَلْنَا الشَّمْسَ عَلَيْهِ دَلِيْلاً.

Alam tara ilaa rabbika kaifa maddaz’z’illa wa lau shaa-a laja-a’lahu saakinan thumma ja-a’lnashamsa a’laihi daleelaa.

Have you not considered (the work of) your Lord, how He extends the shade? And if He had pleased He would certainly have made it stationary; then We have made the sun an indication of it.[30]

For pain of the head

Write the following verse with saffron and wash it with drinking water and recite the same on it, then drink it. Also write it with saffron on a china vessel and wash it with drinking water and wash the head with it. The pain shall be cured by the leave of Allah, the Exalted. The verse is as follows:

أَوَ لَمْ يَرَ الَّذِيْنَ كَفَرُوْا أَنَّ السَّمَاوَاتِ وَ اْلأَرْضَ كَانَتَا رَتْقًا فَفَتَقْنَاهُمَا وَ جَعَلْنَا مِنَ الْمَاءِ كُلَّ شَيْءٍ حَيٍّ أَفَلاَ يُؤْمِنُوْنَ.

Awalam yaralladheena kafaroo annas samaawaati wal arz”a kaanata ratqan fafataqnaahumaa wa ja-a’lnaa minal maa-i kulli shai-in h’ayyin afalaa yu-minoon.

Do not those who disbelieve see that the heavens and the earth were closed up, but We have opened them; and We have made of water everything

INSOMNIA / SLEEP

Supplications for sleep and warding off insomnia and nightmares   Bedtime duas click here

For Protection of one who sleeps on a halt during journey

It is narrated from Abi Abdullah (a.s.) that he said: Two brothers came to the Messenger of Allah (s.a.w.s.) and said: We intend to travel to Sham for business, so please teach us something we can recite. He (the Prophet) said: Yes, when you two return home, you must pray the night prayer (Isha) and when you go to bed after the prayer recite the Tasbih of Fatima Zahra (s.a.). Then recite Ayatul Kursi (Throne verse). For it is a protection of everything till the next day. Now thieves followed the two of them and at night sent to them a servant to see if they were asleep or not. When the slave came to them he found them lying on their sides after having recited the verse of the throne and the Tasbih of Fatima (s.a.). He said: As if around them were two walls. The slave came forward and circled them and the house but he could not see anything except two constructed walls. When he returned to his masters they said to him: May Allah degrade you, you have lied and shown yourself to be weak and cowardly. Then they themselves stood up and looked: (They also saw nothing except two constructed walls) and they could not see anyone else. So they returned home; and the next day they came and said: Where were you last night? They said: We were here only and we have not departed. They said: By Allah, we had come but we saw nothing except two walls; so tell us what is the matter? They explained: Indeed we had approached the Messenger of Allah (s.a.w.s.) and requested him to teach us something. So he taught us to recite the verse of the throne and Tasbih of Fatima (s.a.) and we recited them. They said: You may go, by Allah, we would never pursue you and never would a thief have any power over you after reciting the above.[1]

Supplication for sleep

اَللَّهُمَّ رَبَّ السَّمٰوَاتِ وَ اْلاَرَضِيْنَ وَ مَا اَقَلَّتْ وَ رَبَّ الشَّيَاطِيْنَ وَ مَا اَضَلَّتْ كُنْ لِىْ جَارًا مِنْ شَرِّ خَلْقِكَ كُلِّهِمْ جَمِيْعًا اَنْ يَّفْرُطَ عَلَىَّ اَحَدٌ مِنْهُم اَوْ يَبْغِىْ عَلَىَّ عَزَّ جَارُكَ وَ جَلَّ ثَنَاؤُكَ وَ لاَ إِلٰهَ غَيْرُكَ.

Allaahumma rabbas samaawaati wal araz”eena wa maa aqallat wa rabbash shayaat’eena wa maa az”allat kullee jaaram min sharri khalqika kullihim jameea’n ayn yafrut’a a’layya ah’adum minhum auyabghee a’laiya a’zza jaaruka wa jalla thanaa-uka wa laa ilaaha ghairuk.

O Allah, Lord of the heavens and the earths and whatever it contains, and the Lord of the Satans and what they deviate. Be my protection against the evil of Your creatures, all of them together that one of them be excessive on me or revolt against me (overpower me). Honor Your neighbor and exalted Your glorification and there is no god except You.

He (s.a.w.s.) has said: When you go to bed, recite Surah Fatiha and Surah Tawheed. They will protect you from everything except death.[2]

Cure for one who is afraid of dreams and nocturnal emission

It is narrated from Imam as-Sadiq (a.s.) that he said: One who is frightened in sleep should recite ten times:

لاَ اِلٰهَ اِلاَّ اللهُ وَحْدَهُ لاَ شَرِيْكَ لَهُ يُحْيِىْ وَ يُمِيْتُ وَ يُحْيِیْ وَ هُوَ حَىٌّ لاَ يَمُوْتُ.

Laa ilaaha illallaahu wah’dahu laa shareeka lahu yuh’yee wa yumeetu wa yumeetu wa yuh’yee wa huwa h’ayyul laa yamoot.

There is no god except Allah, the One Who has no partner. One who gives life and death and gives death and enlivens. And He is the living who never dies.

Also recite the Tasbih of Sayyida Fatima az-Zahra (s.a.).

Additionally it is mentioned in Tibbul Aaimma that: He must also recite the verse of the throne and Surah Tawheed.[3]

It is narrated from Amirul Momineen (a.s.) that he said: If you are frightened in sleep or you suffer from amnesia, recite the following verses:

فَضَرَبْنَا عَلٰى آذَانِهِمْ فِيْ الْكَهْفِ سِنِيْنَ عَدَدًا. ثُمَّ بَعَثْنَاهُمْ لِنَعْلَمَ أَيُّ الْحِزْبَيْنِ أَحْصٰى لِمَا لَبِثُوْا أَمَدًا.

Faz”arabnaa a’laa adhaanihim fil kahfi sineena a’dadaa. Thumma ba-a’thnaahum lina’lama ayyul h’izbaini ah’s’aalimaa labithoo amadaa.

So We prevented them from hearing in the cave for a number of years. Then We raised them up that We might know which of the two parties was best able to compute the time for which they remained.[4]

It is narrated from Imam al-Baqir (a.s.) that he said: One who is fearful of nightmares, should recite at the time of going to the bed: Surah Naas, Surah Falaq and Ayatul Kursi.

It has come in a tradition that if you fear the night, recite the following ten times:

اَعُوْذُ بِكَلِمَاتِ اللهِ مِنْ غَضَبِهِ وَ مِنْ عِقَابِهِ وَ مِنْ شَرِّ عِبَادِهِ وَ مِنْ هَمَزَاتِ الشَّيَاطِيْنِ وَ اَعُوْذُ بِكَ رَبِّ اَنْ يَّحْضَرُوْنَ.

Ao’o’dhu bikalimaatillaahi min ghaz”abihi wa min i’qaabihi wa min sharri i’baadihi wa min hamazaatish shayaat’eeni wa a-o’o’dhubika rabbi ayn yah’z”aroon.

I seek refuge by the words of Allah from His wrath and from His punishment and from the mischief of people and from the deceit of the Satans. And I seek Your refuge, O Lord, that they present themselves to me (affect me).

The Prophet (s.a.w.s.) has also commended it and additionally to recite Ayatul Kursi:

إِذْ يُغَشِّيكُمُ النُّعَاسَ أَمَنَةً مِّنْهُ. وَجَعَلْنَا نَوْمَكُمْ سُبَاتًا.

Idhyughash sheekumun nu-a’a’sa amanatam minh. Wa ja-a’lnaa naumakum subaataa.

When He caused calm to fall on you as a security from Him. And We made your sleep to be rest (to you).

It is narrated that Shahab bin Abde Rabb came to Imam as-Sadiq (a.s.) and said to him that a woman comes to him and frightens him in sleep. He (a.s.) said:

Carry a rosary with you at the time of going to bed, and recite 34 times:

اَللهُ اَكْبَرُ

Allaahu Akbar

Allah is the Greatest

and 33 times

سُبْحَانَ اللهِ

Subh’aan Allaah

Glory be to Allah

and 33 times

اَلْحَمْدُ ِللهِ

Al h’amdu Lillaah

Praise be to Allah

and ten times

لاَ اِلٰهَ إِلاَّ اللهُ وَحْدَهُ لاَ شَرِيْكَ لَهُ لَهُ الْمُلْكُ وَ لَهُ الْحَمْدُ يُحْيِىْ وَ يُمِيْتُ وَ يُمِيْتُ وَ يُحْيِىْ بِيَدِهِ الْخَيْرُ وَلَهُ اخْتِلاَفُ اللَّيْلُ وَ النَّهَارُ هُوَ عَلٰی كُلِّ شَىْءٍ قَدِيْرٌ.

Laa ilaaha illallaahu wah’dahu laa shareeka lahu lahul mulku wa lahul h’amdu yuh’yee wa yumeetu wa yumeetu wa yuh’yee biyadihil khairu wa lahu ikhtilaaful lailu wan nahaaru huwa a’laa kulli shai-in qadeer.

There is no god except Allah, the One Who has no partner. For Him is the kingdom and for Him is the Praise. He enlivens and He gives death. And He gives death and He enlivens. In His hands is the good and for Him are the alternation of the night and the day and He is powerful over everything.[5]

Apparently one has the choice of either reciting Subh’aan Allah after Alh’amdu lillaah or before it.

It is narrated from as-Sadiq (a.s.) that he said: When you are afraid of nocturnal emission you must recite the following on your bed:

اَللَّهُمَّ إِنِّيْ اَعُوْذُ بِكَ مِنَ اْلاِحْتِلاَمِ وَ مِنَ اْلاَحْلاَمِ وَ مِنْ اَنْ يَتَلاَعَبَ بِىّ الشَّيْطَانِ فِىْ اليَقَظَةِ وَ الْمَنَامِ.

Allaahumma innee ao’o’dhubika minal ih’tilaami wa minal ah’laami wa myn yatalaa-a’ba biyash shait’aani fil yaqaz’ati wal manaam.

O Allah, I seek Your refuge from nocturnal emission (ejaculation) and from nightmares and from that the Satan should play with me in wakefulness and sleep.

It is narrated from Abi Abdullah (a.s.) that he said: When one of you sees in his sleep a person whom he detests he must cover himself with his sheet and say:

إِنَّمَا النَّجْوٰى مِنَ الشَّيْطَانِ لِيَحْزُنَ الَّذِيْنَ آمَنُوْا وَ لَيْسَ بِضَارِّهِمْ شَيْئًا إِلاَّ بِإِذْنِ اللهِ.

Innaman najwaa minash shait’aani liyah’zunalladheena aamanu wa laisa biz”aaarrihim shai-an illaa bi-idhnillaah.

Secret counsels are only (the work) of the Shaitan that he may cause to grieve those who believe, and he cannot hurt them in the least except with Allah’s permission.

Then say:

اَعُوْذُ بِمَا عَاذَتْ بِهِ مَلاَئِكَةُ اللهِ الْمُقَرَّبُوْنَ وَ اَنْبِيَآءِ اللهِ الْمُرْسَلُوْنَ، وَ عِبَادِ اللهِ الصَّالِحُوْنَ مِنْ شَرِّ مَا رَاَيْتُ وَ مِنَ الشَّيْطَانِ الرَّجِيْمِ.

Ao’o’dhu bimaa a’a’dhat bihi malaa-ikatullaahil muqarraboona wa ambiyaa-illaahil mursaloon. Wa i’baadillaahis’ s’aalih’oona min sharri maa ra-aitu wa minash shait’aanir rajeem.

I seek refuge from that through which the proximate angels of Allah sought refuge, and the messenger prophets of Allah and the righteous servants of Allah from the mischief of what I saw and from the accursed Satans.

For curing insomnia and for waking up early in the morning

It is narrated from Imam as-Sadiq (a.s.): One who sleeps and intends to wake up at a particular time during the night should recite the following verse:

قُلْ إِنَّمَا أَنَا بَشَرٌ مِّثْلُكُمْ يُوْحٰى إِلَيَّ أَنَّمَا إِلٰهُكُمْ إِلٰهٌ وَاحِدٌ فَمَنْ كَانَ يَرْجُوْا لِقَآءَ رَبِّهِ فَلْيَعْمَلْ عَمَلاً صَالِحًا وَ لاَ يُشْرِكْ بِعِبَادَةِ رَبِّهِ أَحَدًا.

Qul innamaa anaa basharum mithlukum yooh’aa ilayya annamaa ilaahukum ilaahumw waah’idun faman kaana yarjoo liqaa-a rabbihi falya’mal a’malan s’aalih’an wa laa yushrik bi-i’baadati rabbihi ah’adaa.

Say: I am only a mortal like you; it is revealed to me that your god is one God, therefore whoever hopes to meet his Lord, he should do good deeds, and not join any one in the service of his Lord.[6]

It is narrated from Amirul Momineen (a.s.) that he said: The messenger of Allah (s.a.w.s.) said: One who intends to wake up at a particular time during the night should come to his bed and say:

اَللَّهُمَّ لاَ تُؤْمِنِّيْ مَكْرِكَ، وَ لاَ تُنْسِيْنِيْ ذِكْرِكَ، وَ لاَ تَجْعَلْنِيْ مِنَ الْغَافِلِيْنَ، اَقُوْمُ إِنْ شَآءَ اللهُ سَاعَةً كَذَا وَ كَذَا

Allaahumma laa tu-minnee makrika wa laa tunseenee dhikrika wa laa taj-a’lnee minal ghaafileen. Aqoomu inshaa-allaahu saaa’tan kadhaa wa kadhaa.

O Allah, do not keep me safe from Your planning, and do not make me forget Your remembrance and do not make me of the forgetful ones. I should get up, if Allah wills at so and so hour.

Then Allah appoints an angel over him who wakes him up at that particular hour.[7]

It is also narrated from Imam al-Kazim (a.s.) that he said: One who wishes to get up in the night should recite at the time of going to bed:

اَللَّهُمَّ لاَ تُنْسِيْنِيْ ذِكْرُكَ، وَ لاَ تُؤْمِنِّيْ مَكْرُكَ وَ لاَ تَجْعَلْنِيْ مِنَ الْغَافِلِيْنَ وَ انْبِهْنِيْ ِلاَحَبِّ السَّاعَاتِ إِلَيْكَ اَدْعُوْكَ فِيْهَا فَتَسْتَجِيْبَ لِىْ وَ اَسْاَلُكَ فَتُعْطِيْنِيْ وَ اَستَغْفِرُكَ فَتَغْفِرَ لِىْ إنَّهُ لاَ يَغْفِرُ الذُّنُوْبَ اِلاَّ اَنْتَ يَا اَرْحَمَ الرَّاحِمِيْنَ.

Allaahumma laa tunseenee dhikruka wa laa tu-minnee makruka wa laa taj-a’lnee minal ghaafileena wa ambihnee li-ah’abbis saaa’a’ti ilaika ado’oka feehaa fatasatajeeba lee wa as-aluka fatu’t’eenee wa astaghfiruka fataghfira lee innahu laa yaghfirudh dhunooba illaa anta yaa arh’amar raah’imeen.

O Allah, do not make me forget Your remembrance and do not grant me security against Your plan. Do not make me of the forgetful ones. And wake me at the time I want to. I pray You for that so You accept it. And I ask You that You may grant it and I seek Your forgiveness, so forgive me. No one forgives the sins except You, the best of the merciful ones.

He said: Allah, the Exalted, sends two angels who wake him. Thus when he wakes up, he would be forgiven, and if he dies on that night, he would die a martyr. When he wakes up and asks Allah for a thing it is given to him immediately.[8]

It is narrated from al-Baqir (a.s.) that he said: At whichever hour the person intends to get up, Allah is aware of his intention, except that Allah appoints for him two angels who rouse him at that particular hour.

It is narrated from as-Sadiq (a.s.) that he said: One who is not able to sleep and is suffering from insomnia should recite the following supplication:

سُبْحَانَ اللهِ ذِیْ الشَّانِ دَائِمُ السُّلْطَانِ كُلُّ يَوْمٍ هُوَ فِىْ شَاْنٍ.

subh’aan allaahi dhish shaani daaimus sult’aani kullu yauwmin huwa fee shaanin.

Glory be to Allah, the One with majesty and the permanent King and every day He is in Majesty.

It is narrated from Ali (a.s.) that he said: Fatima (s.a.) complained to the Messenger of Allah (s.a.w.s.) about insomnia and he said: Recite the following my child:

يَا مُشْبِعَ الْبُطُوْنِ الْجَائِعَةِ وَ يَا كَاسِىَ الْجُيُوْبِ الْعَارِيَّةِ وَ يَا مُسْكِّنَ الْعُرُوْقِ الضَّارِبَةِ وَ يَا مُنَوِّمَ العُيُوْنِ السَّاهِرَةِ سَكِّنْ عُرُوْقِىْ الضَّارِبَةِ وَ إِذَنْ لِعَيْنِيْ نَوْمًا عَاجِلاً.

Yaa mushbia’l but’oonil jaa-ia’ti wa yaa kaasiyal juyoobil a’a’reeyati wa yaa musakkinal u’rooqiz” z”aaribati wa yaa munawwimal u’yoonis saahirati sakkin u’rooqiz” z”aaribati wa idhal li a’inee nauman a’ajilaa.

O One Who fills the empty stomachs and One Who fills the empty pockets, O One Who steadies the throbbing veins. O One Who puts to sleep the wakeful eyes. Make my throbbing veins steady and allow for my eyes sleep very soon.

It is narrated from Abi Hamzah Thumali from Ali bin al-Husain (a.s.) that he said: One who says at the time of going to bed:

اَللَّهُمَّ اَنْتَ اْلاَوَّلُ فَلاَ شَىْءَ قَبْلَكَ، وَ اَنْتَ الظَّاهِرُ فَلاَ شَىْءَ فَوْقَكَ، وَ اَنْتَ الْبَاطِنُ فَلاَ شَیْءَ دُوْنَكَ، وَ اَنْتَ اْلآخِرُ فَلاَ شَىْءَ بَعْدَكَ، اَللَّهُمَّ رَبَّ السَّمَاوَاتِ السَّبْعِ وَ رَبَّ اْلاَرْضِيْنَ السَّبْعِ وَ رَبَّ التَّوْرَاةِ وَ اْلإِنْجِيْلِ وَ الزَّبُوْرِ وَ الْفُرْقَانِ الْحَكِيْمِ اَعُوْذُ بِكَ مِنْ شَرِّ كُلِّ دَآبَّةٍ اَنْتَ آخِذٌ بِنَاصِيَتِها إِنَّكَ عَلٰی صِرَاطٍ مُّسْتَقِيْمٍ.

Allaahumma antal awwalu falaa shai-a qablak. Wa antaz’ z’aahiru falaa shai-a fauqaka, wa antal baat’inu falaa shai-a doonak. Wa antal aakhiru falaa shai-a ba’dak. Allaahumma rabbas samaawaatis sab-i’ wa rabbal arz”eenas sab-i’ wa rabbat tauraati wal injeeli waz zuboori wal furqaanil h’akeemi ao’o’dhubika min sharri kulli daaabbatin anta aakhidhum binaa s’iyatihaa innaka a’laa s’iraat’im Mustaqeem.

O Allah, You are the first, there is nothing before You. And You are the apparent and there is nothing above You and You are the hidden and there is nothing other than You and You are the last such that there is nothing after You. O Allah, Lord of the seven heavens and the seven earths and the Lord of the Taurat and the Injeel and the Zabur and the wise Quran. I seek Your refuge from the evil of all creatures. You take their forelocks. Indeed You are on the straight path.

Allah would cure his poverty and keep him safe from all predatory animals.[9]

Fatima (s.a.) complained to the Messenger of Allah (s.a.w.s.) about what she saw in the dream. He said to her: When you see such a thing recite this:

اَعُوْذُ بِمَا عَاذَتْ بِهِ مَلاَئِكَةُ اللهِ الْمُقَرَّبُوْنَ وَ اَنْبِيَاءِ اللهِ الْمُرْسَلُوْنَ، وَ عِبَادِ اللهِ الصَّالِحُوْنَ مِنْ شَرِّ رُؤْيَاىَ الَّتِىْ رَاَيْتُ تَضُرَّنِيْ فِىْ دِيْنِيْ وَ دُنْيَاىَ.

Ao’o’dhu bimaa a’a’dhat bihi malaa-ikatullaahil muqarraboona wa ambiyaa illaahil mursaloona, wa i’baadillaahis’ s’aalih’oona min sharri ru-yaayal latee ra-aitu taz”urranee fee deenee wa dunyaaya

I seek refuge from that by which seek refuge the proximate angels of Allah, the messenger prophets of Allah and the righteous servants of Allah from the evil of what I saw that it should harm me in my religion and my world.

Then spit thrice on the left.[10]

It is narrated from Halabi that he said: Abu Abdillah (a.s.) said to one of his followers when the man had asked him: O Son of Allah’s Messenger, I have a daughter and she is suffering from insomnia and I am worried about her. She is in hysteria since many days. If you think it proper, pray to Allah for her well-being. He said: He prayed for her, then said: Instruct her to open a blood vessel, for she will benefit by that.[11]

It is narrated regarding Abi Abdullah (a.s.) that a man said to him: O Son of Allah’s Messenger, I have a female neighbor who is often frightened in sleep, and sometimes her condition becomes serious, then there seems no way and a limpness comes to her shoulders and some physicians have seen her and said: She is possessed, and her cure is not possible. He (a.s.) said: Cure it by bleeding, and take for her dill water boiled in honey, and give her to drink for three days. The man says: I did that and she was cured by the leave of Allah, the Mighty and the Sublime.[12]

A man came to Abi Abdullah (a.s.) and complained that a person imagined that a woman comes to him in his sleep and frightens him; and he is so much affected that he screams in sleep and the neighbors hear it. He (a.s.) said: Go and say to him: Do you not pay Zakat? He said: Yes, by Allah, I do pay it. He said: Say to him: If you pay it you do not pay to those qualified to receive it.[13]

Panic in sleep

If you feel panic from the night, recite the following ten times:

اَعُوْذُ بِكَلِمَاتِ اللهِ مِنْ غَضَبِهِ وَ مِنْ عِقَابِهِ وَ مِنْ شَرِّ عِبَادِهِ وَ مِنْ هَمَزَاتِ الشَّيَاطِيْنَ وَ اَعُوْذُ بِكَ اَنْ يَّحْضَرُوْنَ.

Ao’o’dhu bikalimaatillaahi min ghaz”abihi wa min i’qaabihi wa min sharri i’baadihi wa min hamazaatish shayat’eena wa ao’o’dhubika anyah’z”aroon.

I seek refuge by the words of Allah from His Anger and His punishment and from the mischief of His creatures and from the frauds of the Satans and I seek Your refuge O Lord, from that they affect me.

The Prophet (s.a.w.s.) has instructed thus and to read: The Throne verse (Ayatul Kursi):

إِذْ يُغَشِّيْكُمُ النُّعَاسَ أَمَنَةً مِّنْهُ. وَ جَعَلْنَا نَوْمَكُمْ سُبَاتًا.

Idhyughash sheeyakumun nua’a’sa amanatam minhu wa ja-a’lnaa naumakum subaataa.

When He caused calm to fall on you as a security from Him. And We made your sleep to be rest (to you),[14]

To see the thief in dream

It is quoted in many collections from Shaykh Bahai that the following letters be written and placed below the head to see the thief in ones dream:

ح لا ح ي عا حلا ا ملح ملح ملح مسح والعهدة عليه. [15]

For nightmares

Recite at the time of going to bed, while one is with ablution and he should sleep on his right side, Surah Shams, Surah Lail, Surah Teen, Surah Tawheed, Surah Falaq and Surah Naas and say:

اَللَّهُمَّ إِنِّیْ اَعُوْذُ بِكَ مِنْ سِیْءِ اْلاَحْلاَمِ وَ اسْتَجِيْرُ بِكَ مِنْ تَلاَعُبِ الشَّيْطَانِ بِىْ فِىْ الْيَقَظَةِ وَ الْمَنَامِ، اَللَّهُمَّ إنِّیْ اَسْاَلُكَ رُؤْيَا صَالِحَةً صَادِقَةً نَافِعَةً حَافِظَةً غَيْرَ مَنْسِيَّةَ، اَللَّهُمَّ اَرِنِيْ فِىْ مَنَامِىْ مَا اَحَبُّهُ.

Allaahumma innee ao’o’dhubika min see-il ah’laami wa astajeeru bika min talaau’bish shait’aani bee fil yaqaz’ati wal manaam. Allaahumma innee as-aluka ru-yaa s’aalih’atan s’aadiqatan naafia’tan h’aafiz’atan ghaira manseeyata, allaahumma arinee fee manaamee maa ah’abbuh.

O Allah, indeed I seek Your refuge from the evil of the nightmares and I seek to be distanced from the playing of the Satan in wakefulness and sleep. O Allah, indeed I ask You for good dreams, true, beneficial that are remembered and not forgotten. O Allah show me in my dream what I like.[16]

For one who sees something detestable in dream

Abu Qatadah bin Rabi has narrated: I heard the Messenger of Allah (s.a.w.s.) says: The true dream is from Allah, the Exalted. Thus when one of you sees what one likes do not relate it to anyone except whom you love; and when you see something you dislike, then spit three times to your left and seek refuge from the mischief of the Satan, and do not relate it to anyone, it would not harm you.[17]

For nocturnal emission

It is narrated from Imam as-Sadiq (a.s.) that he said: One who fears nocturnal emission of semen must recite the following supplication when he is on bed before going to sleep:

اَللَّهُمَّ إِنِّيْ اَعُوْذُ بِكَ مِنَ اْلاِحْتِلاَمِ وَ مِنَ اْلاَحْلاَمِ وَ مِنْ اَنْ يَتَلاَعَبَ بِىّ الشَّيْطَانُ فِىْ اليَقَظَةِ وَ الْمَنَامِ.

Allaahumma innee ao’o’dhubika minal ih’tilaami wa minal ah’laami wa min ayn yatalaa a’ba bish shait’aanu fil yaqaz’ati wal manaam.

O Allah indeed I seek Your refuge from ejaculation and from that the Satan plays with me in wakefulness and sleep.

Also recite Surah Tariq at the time of going to bed, and you will be safe from ejaculation.[18]

The Dreams

It is narrated from Prophet Sulaiman (a.s.) and Salman al-Farsi (r.a.) has quoted it:

Dream of the sixth of the month: The conclusion will appear on the twentieth day.

Dream of the thirteenth of the month: The conclusion will appear after nine days.

Dream of the fourteenth of the month: The conclusion will appear after 26 days.

Dream of the fifteenth of the month: The conclusion will appear after 3 days.

Dream of the twenty-eighth of the month: The conclusion will appear that day itself.

Dream of the twenty-ninth of the month: The conclusion will again appear that day itself.[19]
