Curing Ailments Duas

First:Sayyid Ibn Tawus
Sayyid Ibn Tawus (may Allah have mercy upon him) in his book of Muhaj al-Da`awat has reported Sa`id ibn Abi’l-Fath of Wasit as saying:
I was once inflicted by a serious disease that overtired all physicians. Therefore, my father took me to the hospital where all physicians, headed by the Christian doctor of medicine, tried to find me treatment, but failed. Finally, they had to confess, “This disease cannot be healed except by God the All-exalted.” With breaking heart and distress, I had to go back home. Browsing one of my father’s books, I found the following inscribed on the back of the book:
Imam al-Sadiq (`a) is reported to have said: Any diseased person who repeats these statements forty times immediately after the Dawn Prayer and then rubs the painful part with his hand, Almighty Allah will free him from the disease and restore him to health:

بِسْمِ ٱللَّهِ ٱلرَّحْمٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ
bismillahi alrrahmani alrrahimi
In the Name of Allah, the All-beneficent, the All-merciful.
الْحَمْدُ لِلَّهِ رَبِّ ٱلْعَالَمِينَ
alhamdu lillahi rabbi al`alamina
All praise be to Allah, the Lord of the Worlds.
حَسْبُنَا ٱللَّهُ وَنِعْمَ ٱلْوَكِيلُ
hasbuna allahu wa ni`ma alwakilu
Sufficient to us is Allah, and most excellent is the Protector.
تَبَارَكَ ٱللَّهُ أَحْسَنُ ٱلْخَالِقِينَ
tabaraka allahu ahsanu alkhaliqina
Blessed be Allah, the Best of all creators.
وَلاَ حَوْلَ وَلاَ قُوَّةَ إِلاََّ بِٱللَّهِ ٱلْعَلِيِّ ٱلْعَظِيمِ
wa la hawla wa la quwwata illa billahi al`aliyyi al`azimi
There is neither might nor power save with Allah, the Most High and All-great.
I, the patient, waited for dawn, performed the obligatory prayer, and sat in my place repeating these words while I was fearful lest the pains would return to me. Keeping on this state for three days, the disease was gone. My father, after I had told him about this, thanked Almighty Allah. When he informed one of the physicians about the restoration of my health, the physician, who was non-Muslim, visited and examined me. When he was sure that my disease had gone, he converted to Islam, bore witness that Muhammad is the messenger of God, and committed himself to the teachings of Islam.

Second:Al-Kaf`ami
Al-Kaf`ami, in his book entitled al-Misbah, has mentioned that whoever is diseased, may rub over the place of his prostration (in prayers) with his hand and then rub the ailed organ after each obligatory prayer seven times. He may then say the following supplicatory prayer:

يَا مَنْ كَبَسَ ٱلأَرْضَ عَلَىٰ ٱلْمَاءِ
ya man kabasa al-arda `ala alma'i
O He Who has pressed the earth on water,
وَسَدَّ ٱلْهَوَاءَ بِٱلسَّمَاءِ
wa sadda alhawa'a bilssama'i
blocked the air with the sky,
وَٱخْتَارَ لِنَفْسِهِ أَحْسَنَ ٱلأَسْمَاءِ
wakhtara linafsihi ahsana al-asma'i
and chose for Himself the most excellent of all names,
صَلِّ عَلَىٰ مُحَمَّدٍ وَآلِ مُحَمَّدٍ
salli `ala muhammadin wa ali muhammadin
(please) send blessings upon Muhammad and the Household of Muhammad,
وَٱفْعَلْ بِي…
waf`al bi…
do to me…
وَٱرْزُقْنِي وَعَافِنِي مِنْ…
warzuqni wa `afini min…
grant me sustenance, and cure me of… [Instead of the three dots, you may submit your requests and mention your ailed organ.]
اَللَّهُمَّ أَعِنِّي عَلَىٰ هَوْلِ يَوْمِ ٱلْقِيَامَةِ
allahumma a`inni `ala hawli yawmi alqiyamati
O Allah, (please) help me encounter the horror of the Resurrection Day,
وَأَخْرِجْنِي مِنَ ٱلدُّنْيَا سَالِماً
wa akhrijni min alddunya saliman
take me out of this world soundly,
وَزَوِّجْنِي مِنَ ٱلْحُورِ ٱلْعِينِ
wa zawwijni min alhuri al`ini
give me in marriage the Paradisiacal women,
وَٱكْفِنِي مَؤُونَتِي وَمَؤُونَةَ عِيَالِي
wakfini ma'unati wa ma'unata `iyali
save me from procuring the provisions of myself, my family members,
وَمَؤُونَةَ ٱلنَّاسِ
wa ma'unata alnnasi
and people,
وَأَدْخِلْنِي بِرَحْمَتِكَ فِي عِبَادِكَ ٱلصَّالِحِينَ
wa adkhilni birahmatika fi `ibadika alssalihina
and include me, in the name of Your mercy, with Your righteous servants.

Third:Prayer for restoration of Health
Quoting Misbah al-Mutahajjid, al-Kaf`ami has reported that whoever is ailed, may say the following supplicatory prayer in the second prostration of the first two units of the Night Prayer:

يَا عَلِيُّ يَا عَظِيمُ
ya `aliyyu ya `zimu
O Most High! O All-great!
يَا رَحْمٰنُ يَا رَحِيمُ
ya rahmanu ya rahimu
O All-beneficent! O All-merciful!
يَا سَمِيعَ ٱلدَّعَوَاتِ
ya sami`a aldda`awati
O Hearer of all prayers!
يَا مُعْطِيَ ٱلْخَيْرَاتِ
ya mu`tiya alkhayrati
O Giver of the good things!
صَلِّ عَلَىٰ مُحَمَّدٍ وَآلِهِ
salli `ala muhammadin wa alihi
(Please) bless Muhammad and his Household,
وَأَعْطِنِي مِنْ خَيْرِ ٱلدُّنْيَا وَٱلآخِرَةِ مَا أَنْتَ أَهْلُهُ
wa a`tini min khayri alddunya wal-akhirati ma anta ahluhu
give me from the good of this world and the Next World in the amount that fits You,
وَٱصْرِفْ عَنِّي مِنْ شَرِّ ٱلدُّنْيَا وَٱلآخِرَةِ مَا أَنْتَ أَهْلُهُ
wasrif `anni min sharri alddunya wal-akhirati ma anta ahluhu
dispel from me the evils of this world and the Next World in the way that fits You,
وَأَذْهِبْ عَنِّي هٰذَا ٱلْوَجَعَ…
wa adhhib `anni hadha alwaja`a…
and remove from me this ailment…The disease or ailment may be now mentioned…
فَإِنَّهُ قَدْ غَاظَنِي وَأَحْزَنَنِي
fa'innahu qad ghazani wa ahzanani
for it has enraged and depressed me.
It is recommended to supplicate earnestly, because the more earnest the sooner in response.

Fourth: Quoted from `Uddat al-Da`i, Imam al-Sadiq (`a)
When you are ailed, go outdoors, raise your hands towards the sky, and say the following supplicatory prayer:

اللَّهُمَّ إِنَّكَ عَيَّرْتَ أَقْوَاماً فِي كِتَابِكَ
allahumma innaka `ayyarta aqwaman fi kitabika
O Allah! Having rebuked some people in Your Book,
فَقُلْتَ: ﴿قُلِ ٱدْعُوٱ ٱلَّذِينَ زَعَمْتُمْ مِنْ دُونِهِ
faqulta qul id`u alladhina za`amtum min dunihi
You said, “Say, ‘Call on those whom you assert besides Him.
فَلاَ يَمْلِكُونَ كَشْفَ الضُّرِّ عَنْكُمْ وَلاَ تَحْوِيلاًَ﴾
fala yamlikuna kashfa alddurri `ankum wa la tahwilan
They shall not control the removal of distress from you nor its transference.’”
فَيَا مَنْ لاَ يَمْلِكُ كَشْفَ ضُرِّي وَلاَ تَحْوِيلَهُ عَنِّي أَحَدٌ غَيْرُهُ
fayaman la yamliku kashfa durri wa la tahwilahu `anni ahadun ghayruhu
O He save Whom no one controls the removal of distress nor its transference,
صَلِّ عَلَىٰ مُحَمَّدٍ وَآلِهِ
salli `ala muhammadin wa alihi
(please) bless Muhammad and his Household,
وَٱكْشِفْ ضُرِّي
wakshif durri
remove my distress,
وَحَوِّلْهُ إِلَىٰ مَنْ يَدْعُو مَعَكَ إِلٰهاً آخَرَ
wa hawwilhu ila man yad`u ma`aka ilahan akhara
and transfer it to one who calls on another deity besides You,
فَإِنِّي أَشْهَدُ أَنْ لاَ إِلٰهَ غَيْرُكَ
fa'inni ashhadu an la ilaha ghayruka
for I bear witness that there is no god save You.

Fifth:
It is also reported that any believer who is diseased or ailed, should rub the ailed organ with his hand and repeat the following (holy verse) with sincerity:

وَنُنَزِّلُ مِنَ ٱلْقُرْآنِ مَا هُوَ شِفَاءٌ وَرَحْمَةٌ لِلْمُؤْمِنِينَ
wa nunazzilu min alqur'ani ma huwa shifa'un wa rahmatun lilmu'minina
“[And] We reveal of the Qur'an that which is a healing and a mercy for believers
وَلاَ يَزِيدُ ٱلظَّالِمِينَ إِلاََّ خَسَاراً.
wa la yazidu alzzalimina illa khasaran
though it increase the evil-doers in naught save ruin.”
If he does, he will be restored to health no matter what his disease would be. Confirming this, the holy verse corroborates that it carries healing and mercy to the believers.

Sixth: :
An ailed person is recommended to purchase one sa`([1]) of wheat, lie on his back, disperse the wheat grains on his chest, and say the following supplicatory prayer:

اللَّهُمَّ إِنِّي أَسْأَلُكَ بِٱسْمِكَ
allahumma inni as'aluka bismika
O Allah, I beseech You in the name of Your Name—
ٱلَّذِي إِذَا سَأَلَكَ بِهِ ٱلْمُضْطَرُّ كَشَفْتَ مَا بِهِ مِنْ ضُرٍّ
alladhi idha sa'alaka bihi almudtarra kashafta ma bihi min durrin
if the distressed asks You by Your Name, You shall remove whatever harm he suffers,
وَمَكَّنْتَ لَهُ فِي ٱلأَرْضِ
wa makkanta lahu fi al-ardi
give him power in the land,
وَجَعَلْتَهُ خَلِيفَتَكَ عَلَىٰ خَلْقِكَ
wa ja`altahu khalifataka `ala khalqika
and make him Your representative among Your creatures
أَنْ تُصَلِّيَ عَلَىٰ مُحَمَّدٍ وَعَلَىٰ أَهْلِ بَيْتِهِ
an tusalliya `ala muhammadin wa `ala ahli baytihi
to bless Muhammad and his Household
وَأَنْ تُعَافِيَنِي مِنْ عِلَّتِي
wa an tu`afiyani min `illati
and to cure me of my ailment.
He may then sit, gather the wheat grains around him, repeat the same supplicatory prayer, divide the wheat grains into four shares, give each share to a poor man, and repeat the same supplicatory prayer. Once an ailed person does all that, he will be restored to health, Allah willing.

Seventh:Imam `Ali (`a) is reported
Imam `Ali (`a) is reported to have said: Put your hand on the ailed organ and repeat the following supplicatory prayer three times:

اللَّهُ اللَّهُ اللَّهُ رَبِّي حَقّاً
allahu allahu allahu rabbi haqqan
Allah, Allah, Allah is my Lord indeed.
لاَ أُشْرِكُ بِهِ شَيْئاً
la ushriku bihi shay'an
I do not associate with Him anything.
اللَّهُمَّ أَنْتَ لَهَا وَلِكُلِّ عَظِيمَةٍ فَفَرِّجْهَا
allahumma anta laha wa likulli `azimatin fafarrijha
O Allah, You are the only besought for this and for every terrible thing; so (please) relieve it.

Eighth:
Imam al-Sadiq (`a) is reported to have said in this regard: You may put your hand on the ailed organ and say:

بِسْمِ ٱللَّهِ
bismillahi
In the Name of Allah.
You may then rub the ailed organ with your hand and repeat the following evil-repelling prayer (`udhah) seven times:
أَعُوذُ بِعِزَّةِ ٱللَّهِ
a`udhu bi`izzati allahi
I pray for the protection of Allah’s almightiness,
وَأَعُوذُ بِقُدْرَةِ ٱللَّهِ
wa a`udhu biqudrati allahi
I pray for the protection of Allah’s omnipotence,
وَأَعُوذُ بِجَلاَلِ ٱللَّهِ
wa a`udhu bijalali allahi
I pray for the protection of Allah’s majesty,
وَأَعُوذُ بِعَظَمَةِ ٱللَّهِ
wa a`udhu bi`azamati allah
I pray for the protection of Allah’s greatness,
وَأَعُوذُ بِجَمْعِ ٱللَّهِ
wa a`udhu bijam`i allahi
I pray for the protection of Allah’s wholeness,
وَأَعُوذُ بِرَسُولِ ٱللَّهِ صَلَّىٰ ٱللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَآلِهِ
wa a`udhu birasuli allahi salla allahu `alayhi wa alihi
I pray for the protection of Allah’s Messenger, may Allah’s blessings be upon him and hisHousehold,
وَأَعُوذُ بِأَسْمَاءِ ٱللَّهِ
wa a`udhu bi-asma'i allahi
and I pray for the protection of Allah’s Names
مِنْ شَرِّ مَا أَحْذَرُ
min sharri ma ahdharu
against the evil of what I concern
وَمِنْ شَرِّ مَا أَخَافُ عَلَىٰ نَفْسِي
wa min sharri ma akhafu `ala nafsi
and the evil of what I fear for myself.

Ninth:for child
It is reported that when a child is ailed, the mother may ascend to a roof, throw the head cover away, expose the hair of her head under the sky, prostrate herself, and say the following supplication:

اللَّهُمَّ رَبِّ أَنْتَ أَعْطَيْتَنِيهِ
allahumma rabbi anta a`taytanihi
O Allah, O my Lord! It is You Who have given him to me
وَأَنْتَ وَهَبْتَهُ لِي
wa anta wahabtahu li
and it is You Who have endued me with Him.
اللَّهُمَّ فَٱجْعَلْ هِبَتَكَ ٱلْيَوْمَ جَدِيدَةً
allahumma faj`al hibataka alyawma jadidatan
O Allah, so (please) renew Your donation to me on this day.
إِنَّكَ قَادِرٌ مُقْتَدِرٌ
innaka qadirun muqtadirun
You are verily all-powerful and omnipotent.
The mother will not raise her head from the prostration but that her child is restored to health.

Tenth: Dawud al-Raqqi has said: Whenever he insisted in prayers, Imam al-Sadiq (`a) would pray Almighty Allah in the name of the Five Persons: the Holy Prophet, Imam `Ali, Lady Fatimah, Imam al-Hasan, and Imam al-Husayn, peace be upon them.

Eleventh: Al-Shahid
Al-Shahid, may Allah have mercy upon him, has reported that whoever is tensely ailed may recite Surah al-Fatihah forty times on a glass of water. He may then pour the water on his body. He may have a measure of wheat near him and hand over each beggar a measure and ask him to pray Almighty Allah to cure him. If he does so, he will be restored to health, Allah willing.
“Medicate your patients with alms.” This saying is reported through considerable chains of authority.
With reference to removal of diseases, al-Shahid has also reported that the right arm of a patient may be held while reciting Surah al-Fatihah seven times. After that, the following supplicatory prayer may be said:

اللَّهُمَّ أَزِلْ عَنْهُ ٱلْعِلَلَ وَٱلدَّاءَ
allahumma azil `anhu al`ilala waldda'a
O Allah, (please) remove ailments and maladies from him,
وَأَعِدْهُ إِلَىٰ ٱلصِّحَّةِ وَٱلشِّفَاءِ
wa a`id-hu ila alssihhati walshshifa'i
restore him to health and cure,
وَأَمِدَّهُ بِحُسْنِ ٱلْوِقَايَةِ
wa amiddahu bihusni alwiqayati
supply him with excellent protection,
وَرُدَّهُ إِلَىٰ حُسْنِ ٱلْعَافِيَةِ
wa ruddahu ila husni al`afiyati
return him to excellent wellbeing,
وَٱجْعَلْ مَا نَالَهُ فِي مَرَضِهِ هٰذَا مَادَّةً لِحَيَاتِهِ
waj`al ma nalahu fi maradihi hadha maddatan lihayatihi
and cause what has afflicted him in this ailment of him to be material of his life
وَكَفَّارَةً لِسَيِّئَاتِهِ
wa kaffaratan lisayyi'atihi
and remission of his evildoings.
اللَّهُمَّ وَصَلِّ عَلَىٰ مُحَمَّدٍ وَآلِ مُحَمَّدٍ
allahumma wa salli `ala muhammadin wa ali muhammadin
O Allah, (please) bless Muhammad and the Household of Muhammad.
If this does not work, Surah al-Fatihah may be repeated seventy times, and it will be effective, Allah willing.
اَللَّهُمَّ مُنَّ عَلَيَّ بِٱلتَّوَكُّلِ عَلَيْكَ
allahumma munna `alayya bilttawakkuli `alayka

O Allah, endue me with reliance on You,
وَٱلتَّفوِيضِ إِلَيْكَ
walttafwidi ilayka

entrusting (all my affairs) with You,
وَٱلرِّضَا بِقَدَرِكَ
walrrida biqadarika

satisfaction with Your decree,
وَٱلتَّسْلِيمِ لأَمْرِكَ
walttaslimi li'amrika

and submission to Your ordinance
حَتَّىٰ لاَ أُحِبَّ تَعْجِيلَ مَا أَخَّرْتَ
hatta la uhibba ta`jila ma akhkharta

so that I would not long for hastening what You delay
وَلاَ تَأْخِيرَ مَا عَجَّلْتَ
wa la ta'khira ma `ajjalta

and delaying what You hasten.
يَا رَبَّ ٱلْعَالَمِينَ
ya rabba al`alamina

O Lord of the worlds!

Twelfth::
Imam al-Baqir (`a) is reported to have said, “Whoever is not healed by Surah al-Fatihah and Surah al-Tawhid, nothing else will heal him. Verily, these two Surahs cure of all ailments.”
Imam al-Sadiq (`a) is reported to have said: Allah will certainly cure any ailed believer who says the following verse sincerely while rubbing his ailed organ with his hand:

وَنُنَزِّلُ مِنَ ٱلْقُرْآنِ مَا هُوَ شِفَاءٌ وَرَحْمَةٌ لِلْمُؤْمِنِينَ
wa nunazzilu min alqur'ani ma huwa shifa'un wa rahmatun lilmu'minina
“[And] We reveal of the Qur’an that which is a healing and a mercy for believers.”
Imam al-Rida (`a) is reported to have said: For all ailments, you may say the following supplicatory prayer:
يَا مُنْزِلَ ٱلشِّفَاءِ وَمُذْهِبَ ٱلدَّاءِ
ya munzila alshshifa'i
O revealer of cure and remover of remedy,
صَلِّ عَلَىٰ مُحَمَّدٍ وَآلِهِ
wa mudhhiba aldda'i
(please) bless Muhammad and his Household
وَأَنْزِلْ عَلَىٰ وَجَعِي ٱلشِّفَاءَ
salli `ala muhammadin wa alihi
and reveal cure upon my ailment.

Thirteenth:
Sayyid Ibn Tawus, may Allah have mercy upon him, has mentioned the following narration in his book entitled Muhaj al-Da`awat:
Ibn `Abbas is reported to have said that he was once present with Imam `Ali (`a) when a faint-faced man visited him and said, “O Commander of the Faithful, I am diseased person and many ailments and aches have afflicted me. So, please teach me a supplicatory prayer that helps me endure my ailments.” Answering him, Imam `Ali (`a) said, “I will lead you to a supplicatory prayer that was taught by Archangel Gabriel to the Holy Prophet (s) when al-Hasan and al-Husayn fell ill. This is it:

إِلٰهِي كُلَّمَا أَنْعَمْتَ عَلَيَّ نِعْمَةً
ilahi kullama an`amta `alayya ni`matan
O my God, whenever You bestow upon me a favor,
قَلَّ لَكَ عِنْدَهَا شُكْرِي
qalla laka `indaha shukri
I am too short to thank it properly.
وَكُلَّمَا ٱبْتَلَيْتَنِي بِبَلِيَّةٍ
wa kullama ibtalaytani bibaliyyatin
Whenever You test me with a tribulation,
قَلَّ لَكَ عِنْدَهَا صَبْرِي
qalla laka `indaha sabri
I am too short to endure it.
فَيَا مَنْ قَلَّ شُكْرِي عِنْدَ نِعَمِهِ فَلَمْ يَحْرِمْنِي
faya man qalla shukri `inda ni`amihi falam yahrimni
O He Whose favors have not been thanked by me properly; yet, He has not deprived me of them!
وَيَا مَنْ قَلَّ صَبْرِي عِنْدَ بَلاَئِهِ فَلَمْ يَخْذُلْنِي
wa yaman qalla sabri `inda bala'ihi falam yakhdhulni
O He Whose tribulations have not been endured by me properly; yet, He has not disappointed me!
وَيَا مَنْ رَآنِي عَلَىٰ ٱلْمَعَاصِي فَلَمْ يَفْضَحْنِي
wa ya man ra'ani `ala alma`asi falam yafdahni
O He Who has seen me committing acts of disobedience to Him; yet, He has not exposed me!
وَيَا مَنْ رَآنِي عَلَىٰ ٱلْخَطَايَا فَلَمْ يُعَاقِبْنِي عَلَيْهَا
wa ya man ra'ani `ala alkhataya falam yu`aqibni `alayha
O He Who has seen me committing wrongdoings; yet, He has not punished me for them!
صَلِّ عَلَىٰ مُحَمَّدٍ وَآلِ مُحَمَّدٍ
salli `ala muhammadin wa ali muhammadin
(Please) bless Muhammad and the Household of Muhammad,
وَٱغْفِرْ لِي ذَنْبِي
waghfir li dhanbi
forgive my sin
وَٱشْفِنِي مِنْ مَرَضِي
washfini min maradi
and cure me of my ailment.
إِنَّكَ عَلَىٰ كُلِّ شَيْءٍ قَدِيرٌ
innaka `ala kulli shay'in qadirun
Verily, You have power over all things.”
Ibn `Abbas added: One year later, I saw the man fresh-faced and glowing. He said, “Whenever I said this supplicatory prayer in sickness, I would be soon restored to health, in ailment, I would be soon cured, and before a despotic authority, I would be protected against him.”
Fourteenth: `
It is reported that al-Najashi, an ancient king of Abyssinia, inherited from his fathers a four hundred year old bonnet that appeases any pain that it touches. When the bonnet was untied to inspect its secret, the following supplicatory prayer was seen written therein:

Fifteenth: Headache `
According to Makarim al-Akhlaq, al-Najashi, having had headache, wrote a message to the Holy Prophet (s) complaining about his ache. In response, the Holy Prophet (s) sent him a supplicatory amulet written in a patch. When al-Najashi put the patch in his bonnet, his headache was relieved.This is the supplicatory amulet:

Sixteenth:Headache
Supplicatory Amulet against Headache
Recite the following holy verse on a glass of water and then drink it:

أَوَلَمْ يَرَ ٱلَّذينَ كَفَرُوٱ
awalam yara alladhina kafaru
“Do not those who disbelieve
أَنَّ ٱلسَّمَاوَاتِ وَٱلأَرْضَ
anna alssamawati wal-arda
see that the heavens and the earth
كَانَتَا رَتْقاً فَفَتَقْنَاهُمَا
kanata ratqan fafataqnahuma
were closed up, but We have opened them
وَجَعَلْنَا مِنَ ٱلْمَاءِ كُلَّ شَيْءٍ حَيٍّ
wa ja`alna min alma'i kulla shay'in hayyin
and We have made of water everything living?
أَفَلاَ يُؤْمِنُونَ.
afala yu'minuna
Will they not then believe?”

It is reported that whenever the Holy Prophet (s) was ailed or suffered from headache, he would open his two hands, recite Surah al-Fatihah, Surah al-Falaq, and Surah al-Nas, and then rub his face with his hands. Then, the ache would disappear.

For those who suffer from headache, while rubbing their heads with the hands, the following holy verse should be recited:
إِنَّ ٱللَّهَ يُمْسِكُ ٱلسَّمَاوَاتِ وَٱلأَرْضَ أَنْ تَزُولاَ
inna allaha yumsiku alssamawati wal-arda an tazula
Surely, Allah upholds the heavens and the earth lest they come to naught;
وَلَئِنْ زَالَتَا إِنْ أَمْسَكَهُمَا مِنْ أَحَدٍ مِنْ بَعْدِهِ
wa la'in zalata in amsakahuma min ahadin min ba`dihi
and if they should come to naught, there is none who can uphold them after Him.
إِنَّهُ كَانَ حَلِيماً غَفُوراً
innahu kana haliman ghafuran
Surely, He is the Forbearing, the Forgiving.

The following incident is quoted from the book of Rabi` al-Abrar:
In Turtus (a city western Syria), Al-Ma'mun, the `Abbasid ruler, was once affected by headache that none could treat. Having heard about this, the Roman emperor sent him a bonnet and a letter in which he wrote, “Having been informed about your headache, I sent you this bonnet so that you would put it on your head and your ache would vanish.” Anticipating that the bonnet would be poisoned, al-Ma'mun ordered the messenger to put it on his head. However, no harm happened to the messenger. Al-Ma'mun then ordered the bonnet to be put on the head of another man who suffered from headache. Therefore, his pain vanished. Only then did he put it on his head and his headache vanished. Surprised, al-Ma'mun untied the bonnet and found the following inscription written therein:
بِسْمِ ٱللَّهِ ٱلرَّحْمٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ
bismi allah alrrahman alrrahimi
In the Name of Allah, the All-beneficent, the All-merciful.
كَمْ مِنْ نِعْمَةٍ لِلَّهِ فِي عِرْقٍ سَاكِنٍ
kam min ni`matin lillahi fi `irqin sakinin
Too many graces of Allah are in dormant vein.
حٰم عسقٰ
ha-mim `ayn-sin-qaf
ha-mim `ayn-sin-qaf
لاَ يُصَدَّعُونَ عَنْهَا وَلاَ يُنْزِفُونَ
la yusadda`una `anha wa la yunzifuna
They shall not be affected with headache thereby nor shall they get exhausted.
مِنْ كَلاَمِ ٱلرَّحْمٰنِ خَمَدَتِ ٱلنِّيرَانُ
min kalami alrrahmani khamadati alnniranu
Due to the words of the All-beneficent Lord, fires are extinguished.
وَلاَ حَوْلَ وَلاَ قُوَّةَ إِلاََّ بِٱللَّهِ
wa la hawla wa la quwwata illa billahi
There is neither might nor power save with Allah.
وَجَالَ نَفْعُ ٱلدَّوَاءِ فِيكَ
wa jala naf`u alddawa'i fika
Let the benefit of medicine pervade in you
كَمَا يَجُولُ مَاءُ ٱلرَّبِيعِ فِي ٱلْغُصْنِ
kama yajulu ma'u alrrabi`i fi alghusni
just as the spring water pervades in twigs.

and Allah was to bring forth that which you were going to hide.
فَقُلْنَا ٱضْرِبُوهُ بِبَعْضِهَا

wa biqudratihi allati la yamtani`u minha shay'un
and His omnipotence against which nothing can stop
مِنْ شَرِّ هٰذَا ٱلْوَجَعِ
min sharri hadha alwaja`i
against the evil of this pain,
وَمِنْ شَرِّ مَا فِيهِ
wa min sharri ma fihi
the evil of whatever is in it,
وَمِنْ شَرِّ مَا أَجِدُ مِنْهُ
wa min sharri ma ajidu minhu
and the evil of what I feel because of it.
Then, the sheet may be washed with rainwater and drunk (1) in the beginning of the day before eating anything and (2) before going to sleep. This is blessed and useful way.
It is narrated that a man complained to the Holy Prophet (s) about colitis from which his brother had suffered. The Holy Prophet (s) instructed, “Tell your brother to drink a mixture of honey and hot water.” The next day, the man returned to the Holy Prophet (s) and informed that the prescription was not useful. The Holy Prophet (s) commented, “Allah is truthful, but your brother’s colon is not. Go back, give him the same drink, and recite on it Surah al-Fatihah seven times as prayer for God’s protection.” When the man left, the Holy Prophet (s) said to Imam `Ali (`a), “The brother of this man is hypocrite; therefore, the drink was not effective with him.”

Twenty-fourth:Amulet Against warts
To treat warts—small, benign, and hard excrescence on the skin or on the hand occasionally—for each wart, you may take seven barley seeds. Recite the verses 1-6 of Surah al-Waqi`ah (No. 56) seven times over each seed. Then, recite the following verse seven times over each seed, too:

وَيَسْأَلُونَكَ عَنْ ٱلْجِبَالِ فَقُلْ يَنسِفُهَا رَبِّي نَسْفًا.
wa yas'alunaka `an aljibali faqul yansifuha rabbi nasfan
They ask thee concerning the Mountains, say, ‘My Lord will uproot them and scatter them as dust;
فَيَذَرُهَا قَاعًا صَفْصَفًا.
fayadharuha qa`an safsafan
He will leave them as plains smooth and level;
لاَ تَرَىٰ فِيهَا عِوَجًا وَلاَ أَمْتًا.
la tara fiha `iwajan wa la amtan
Nothing crooked or curved wilt thou see in their place.
You may then blow over it. Take one seed at a time and rub each seed on one wart. Then, put all of the seeds in a piece of cloth, tie up a rock on the piece of cloth, and throw it in a well.
This act is said to be advisably done in the waning of the moon.
A warty person is recommended to rub the warts with a piece of salt and recite three times the last four verses of Surah al-Hashr:
لَوْ أَنْزَلْنَا هٰذَا ٱلْقُرْآنَ عَلَىٰ جَبَلٍ…
law anzalna hadha al-qur'ana `ala jabalin…
Had We sent down this Qur'an on a mountain…
The piece of salt may be then thrown in an oven and the warty person may pass over it hurriedly. Then, the warts will vanish, Allah willing.
The author of the book of al-Khaza'in has mentioned that warts may vanish when they are overlaid with the hair-removing powder.

Twenty-fifth: Amulet against all Tumors
Recite the last four verses of Surah al-Hashr with ponderation while you are ceremonially pure after you have performed the ritual ablution (wudu') before and after an obligatory prayer:
لَوْ أَنْزَلْنَا هٰذَا ٱلْقُرْآنَ عَلَىٰ جَبَلٍ…
law anzalna hadha al-qur'ana `ala jabalin…
Had We sent down this Qur'an on a mountain…
The swelling will then vanish, Allah willing.

Twenty-sixth:Amulet Against Dystocia /Child birth :
For women suffering from dystocia (i.e. difficult or abnormally painful childbirth), the following holy verses may be written on a parchment and tied to their right thigh. It must be untied after they give birth:

بِسْمِ ٱللَّهِ ٱلرَّحْمٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ
bismillahi alrrahman alrrahimi
In the Name of Allah, the All-beneficent, the All-merciful.
كَأَنَّهُمْ يَوْمَ يَرَوْنَ مَا يُوعَدُونَ
ka'annahum yawma yarawna ma yu`aduna
On the day that they shall see what they are promised,
لَمْ يَلْبَثُوٱ إِلاََّ سَاعَةً مِنْ نَهَارٍ
lam yalbathu illa sa`atan min naharin
they shall be as if they had not tarried save an hour of the day.
كَأَنَّهُمْ يَوْمَ يَرَوْنَهَا
ka'annahum yawma yarawnaha
On the day that they see it,
لَمْ يَلْبَثُوٱ إِلاََّ عَشِيَّةً أَوْ ضُحَاهَا
lam yalbathu illa `ashiyyatan aw duhaha
it will be as though they had not tarried but the latter part of a day or the early part of it.
إِذْ قَالَتِ ٱمْرَأَةُ عِمْرَانَ
idh qalat imra'atu `imrana
When a woman of `Imran said:
رَبِّ إِنِّي نَذَرْتُ لَكَ مَا فِي بَطْنِي مُحَرَّراً
rabbi inni nadhartu laka ma fi batni muharraran
My Lord! Surely, I vow to You what is in my womb, to be devoted (to Your service);
فَتَقَبَّلْ مِنِّي إِنَّكَ أَنْتَ ٱلسَّمِيعُ ٱلْعَلِيمُ
fataqabbal minni innaka anta alssami`u al`alimu
accept therefore from me. Surely, You are the Hearing, the Knowing.

It is also reported that the following holy verse should be recited over women suffering from dystocia:
فَأَجَاءَهَا ٱلْمَخَاضُ إِلَىٰ جِذْعِ ٱلنَّخْلَةِ
fa'aja’aha almakhadu ila jidh`I alnnakhlati
And the throes (of childbirth) compelled her to betake herself to the trunk of a palm tree.
قَالَتْ يَا لَيْتَنِي مِتُّ قَبْلَ هٰذَا
qalat ya laytani mittu qabla hadaa
She said: Oh, would that I had died before this,
وَكُنتُ نَسْيًا مَنْسِيّاً
wa kuntu nasyan mansiyyan
and had been a thing quite forgotten.
فَنَادَاهَا مِنْ تَحْتِهَا أَلاَّ تَحْزَنِي
fanadaha min tahtiha alla tahzani
Then (the child) called out to her from beneath her: Grieve not!
قَدْ جَعَلَ رَبُّكِ تَحْتَكِ سَرِيّاً
qad ja`ala rabbuki tahtaki sariyyan
Surely, your Lord has made a stream to flow beneath you.
وَهُزِّي إِلَيْكِ بِجِذْعِ ٱلنَّخْلَةِ
wa huzzi ilayki bijidh`i alnnakhlati
And shake towards you the trunk of the palm tree,
تُسَاقِطْ عَلَيْكِ رُطَبًا جَنِيًّا
tusaqit `alayki rutaban janiyyan
it will drop on you fresh ripe dates.
The reciter should then raise the voice with the following holy verse and the statement following it:
(وَٱللَّهُ أَخْرَجَكُمْ مِنْ بُطُونِ أُمَّهَاتِكُمْ
wallahu akhrajakum min butuni ummahatikum
“And Allah has brought you forth from the wombs of your mothers;
لاَ تَعْلَمُونَ شَيْئًا
la ta`lamuna shay'an
you did not know anything;
وَجَعَلَ لَكُمْ ٱلسَّمْعَ وَٱلأَبْصَارَ وَٱلأَفْئِدَةَ
wa ja`ala lakumu alssam`a wal-absara wal-af'idata
and He gave you hearing, sight, and hearts
لَعَلَّكُمْ تَشْكُرُونَ.)
la`allakum tashkuruna
that you may give thanks.”
كَذٰلِكَ ٱخْرُجْ أَيُّهَا ٱلطَّلَقُ
kadhalika ukhruj ayyuha alttalaqu
So, come out O throes.
أُخْرُجْ بِإِذْنِ ٱللَّهِ
ukhruj bi'idhni allahi
Come out, by the permission of Allah.

For easy childbirth, Imam al-Sadiq (`a) is reported to have advised of writing the following supplicatory prayer on a sheet of paper or a parchment:
اللَّهُمَّ فَارِجَ ٱلْهَمِّ
allahumma farija alhammi
O Allah, O reliever of agonies,
وَكَاشِفَ ٱلْغَمِّ
wa kashifa alghammi
dispeller of distresses,
وَرَحْمٰنَ ٱلدُّنْيَا وَٱلآخِرَةِ وَرَحِيمَهُمَا
wa rahmana alddunya wal-akhirati wa rahimahuma
and beneficent and merciful of this world and the Hereafter,
ٱرْحَمْ…
irham…
(please) have mercy upon…
You may now mention the woman’s name and her mother’s:
رَحْمَةً تُغْنِيهَا بِهَا عَنْ رَحْمَةِ جَمِيعِ خَلْقِكَ
rahmatan tughniha biha `an rahmati jami`i khalqika
with such mercy that makes her dispense with the mercy of all of Your creatures,
تَفْرُجُ بِهَا كُرْبَتَهَا
tafruju biha kurbataha
relieve her anguish,
وَتَكْشِفُ بِهَا غَمَّهَا
wa takshifu biha ghammaha
repel her distress,
وَتُيَسِّرُ وِلاَدَتَهَا
wa tuyassiru wiladataha
and makes easy her childbirth.
(وَقُضِيَ بَيْنَهُمْ بِٱلْحَقِّ وَهُمْ لاَ يُظْلَمُونَ
wa qudiya baynahum bilhaqqi wa hum la yuzlamuna
“And judgment shall be given between them with justice,
وَقِيلَ ٱلْحَمْدُ للَِّهِ رَبِّ ٱلْعَالَمِينَ)
wa qila alhamdu lillahi rabbi al`alamina
and it shall be said: All praise is due to Allah, the Lord of the worlds.”
Twenty-seventh: FEVER
(1) It is recommended to say this supplicatory amulet, which the Holy Prophet (s) taught to Imam `Ali (`a) against fever:

اللَّهُمَّ ٱرْحَمْ جِلْدِيَ ٱلرَّقِيقَ
allahumma irham jildiya alrraqiqa
O Allah, (please) have mercy upon my soft skin
وَعَظْمِيَ ٱلدَّقِيقَ
wa `azmiya alddaqiqa
and my fragile bone.
وَأَعُوذُ بِكَ مِنْ فَوْرَةِ ٱلْحَرِيقِ
wa a`udhu bika min fawrati alhariqi
I pray Your protection against the outburst of fire.
يَا أُمَّ مِلْدَمٍ
ya umma mildamin
O Ummu-Mildam (i.e. fever),
إِنْ كُنْتِ آمَنْتِ بِٱللَّهِ
in kunti amanti billahi
if you believe in Allah,
فَلاَ تَأْكُلِي ٱللَّحْمَ
fala ta'kuli allahma
then do not eat the flesh,
وَلاَ تَشْرَبِي ٱلدَّمَ
wa la tashrabi alddama
do not drink the blood,
وَلاَ تَفُورِي مِنَ ٱلْفَمِ
wa la tafuri min alfami
do not boil in the mouth,
وَٱنْتَقِلِي إِلىٰ مَنْ يَزْعَمُ أَنَّ مَعَ ٱللَّهِ إِلٰهاً آخَرَ
wantaqili ila man yaz`amu anna ma`a allahi ilahan akhara
and move to one who claims that there is another god with Allah,
فَإِنِّي أَشْهَدُ أَنْ لاَ إِلٰهَ إِلاَّ ٱللَّهُ
fa'inni ashhadu an la ilaha illa allahu
for I bear witness that there is no god but Allah,
وَحْدَهُ لاَ شَرِيكَ لَهُ
wahdahu la sharika lahu
One and Only and having no associate,
وَأَشْهَدُ أَنَّ مُحَمَّداً عَبْدُهُ وَرَسُولُهُ
wa ashhadu anna muhammadan `abduhu wa rasuluhu
and I bear witness that Muhammad is His servant and messenger.

(2) A feverish person is recommended to say repeatedly in mornings and evenings the supplicatory prayer known as du`a' al-nur—a supplicatory prayer that Lady Fatimah al-Zahra' (`a) taught to Salman. This supplicatory prayer can be found in Mafatih al-Jinan.


(3) The Holy Imams (`a) are reported to have used to treated themselves against fever with cold water. Successively, they used to wet their clothes by putting one on and leaving the other in water. When the dressed one dried out, they would put on the other wet one.


(4) Handwritten by Imam al-Rida (`a), a feverish person may write the following inscriptions on three sheets of paper as follows:
On the first sheet, the following may be written down:
بِسْمِ ٱللَّهِ ٱلرَّحْمٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ
bismillahi alrrahman alrrahimi
In the Name of Allah, the All-beneficent, the All-merciful.
لاَ تَخَفْ إِنَّكَ أَنْتَ ٱلأَعْلَىٰ
la takhaf innaka anta al-a`la
“Fear not! Surely, you shall be the uppermost.”

On the second sheet, the following may be written down:
بِسْمِ ٱللَّهِ ٱلرَّحْمٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ
bismillahi alrrahman alrrahimi
In the Name of Allah, the All-beneficent, the All-merciful.
لاَ تَخَفْ نَجَوْتَ مِنْ ٱلْقَوْمِ ٱلظَّالِمِينَ
la takhaf najawta min alqawmi alzzalimina
“Fear not! You are secure from the unjust people.”

On the third sheet, the following may be written down:
بِسْمِ ٱللَّهِ ٱلرَّحْمٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ
bismillahi alrrahman alrrahimi
In the Name of Allah, the All-beneficent, the All-merciful.
أَلاَ لَهُ ٱلْخَلْقُ وَٱلأَمْرُ
ala lahu alkhalqu wal-amru
“Surely, His is the creation and the command.
تَبَارَكَ ٱللَّهُ رَبُّ ٱلْعَالَمِينَ
tabaraka allahu rabbu al`alamina
Blessed is Allah, the Lord of the worlds.”
On each of these sheets, Surah al-Tawhid may be recited three times. After that, the feverish person may swallow the sheets in three days; each one on a day. If this is practiced, the fever will be healed, Allah willing.


(5) The feverish person my untie the buttons of his shirt, hang his head down to his chest, say the adhan and the iqamah statements, and recite Surah al-Fatihah seven times. If this is practiced, the fever will be healed, Allah willing.

(6) The Holy Imams (`a) are reported to have instructed that the following supplicatory prayer should be written on a parchment and put on to the feverish person:
اللَّهُمَّ إِنِّي أَسْأَلُكَ بِعِزَّتِكَ
allahumma inni as'aluka bi`izzatika
O Allah, I beseech You in the name of Your almightiness,
وَقُدْرَتِكَ وَسُلْطَانِكَ
wa qudratika wa sultanika
omnipotence, authority,
وَمَا أَحَاطَ بِهِ عِلْمُكَ
wa ma ahata bihi `ilmuka
and whatever is comprehended by Your knowledge
أَنْ تُصَلِّيَ عَلَىٰ مُحَمَّدٍ وَآلِ مُحَمَّدٍ
an tusalliya `ala muhammadin wa ali muhammadin
to bless Muhammad and the Household of Muhammad,
وَأَنْ لاَ تُسَلِّطَ عَلَىٰ… شَيْئاً مِمَّا خَلَقْتَ بِسُوءٍ
wa an la tusallta `ala… ibni… shay'an mimma khalaqta bisu'in
not to overload over [so-and-so] the son of [so-and-so] any thing evil that You have created,
وَٱرْحَمْ جِلْدَهُ ٱلرَّقِيقَ
warham jildahu alrraqiqa
and to have mercy upon his soft skin
وَعَظْمَهُ ٱلدَّقِيقَ
wa `azmahu alddaqiqa
and his fragile bone
مِنْ فَوْرَةِ ٱلْحَرِيقِ
min fawrati alhariqi
against the outbursts of fire.
أُخْرُجِي يَا أُمَّ مِلْدَمٍ
ukhruji ya umma mildamin
Come out, O Ummu-Mildam (i.e. fever),
يَا آكِلَةَ ٱللَّحْمِ
ya akilata allahmi
eater of flesh,
وَشَارِبَةَ ٱلدَّمِ
wa sharibata alddami
and drinker of blood.
حَرُّهَا وَبَرْدُهَا مِنْ جَهَنَّمَ
harruha wa barduha min jahannama
Its heat and coldness are from Hell.
إِنْ كُنْتِ آمَنْتِ بِٱللَّهِ ٱلأَعْظَمِ
in kunti amanti billahi al-a`zami
If you have believed in Allah the Greatest,
أَنْ لاَ تَأْكُلِي لِـ… لَحْماً
an la takuli li… lahman
then do not eat any thing of the flesh of [so-and-so] the son of [so-and-so],
وَلاَ تَمُصِّي لَهُ دَماً
wa la tamussi lahu daman
do not suck any amount of his blood,
وَلاَ تُنْهِكِي لَهُ عَظْماً
wa la tunhiki lahu `azman
do not weaken any part of his bones,
وَلاَ تُثَوِّرِي عَلَيْهِ غَمّاً
wa la tuthawwiri `alayhi ghamman
do not stir up distress over him,
وَلاَ تُهَيِّجِي عَلَيْهِ صُدَاعاً
wa la tuhayyiji `alayhi suda`an
do not excite headache over him,
وَٱنْتَقِلِي عَنْ شَعْرِهِ وَبَشَرِهِ
wantaqili `an sha`rihi wa basharihi
and move away from his hair, skin,
وَلَحْمِهِ وَدَمِهِ
wa lahmihi wa damihi
flesh, and blood
إِلىٰ مَنْ زَعَمَ أَنَّ مَعَ ٱللَّهِ إِلٰهاً آخَرَ
ila man za`ama anna ma`a allahi ilahan akhara
to one who claims that there is another god with Allah
لاَ إِلٰهَ إِلاَّ هُوَ
la ilaha illa huwa
save Whom there is no god.
سُبْحَانَهُ وَتَعَالىٰ عَمَّا يُشْرِكُونَ
subhanahu wa ta`ala `amma yushrikuna
Glory be to Him and Exalted be Him against whatever they associate with Him.
Then, it is recommended to write down the name of a non-Muslim or an enemy of Almighty Allah.

(7) On the right arm of the feverish person, it is advised to hang a sheet of paper (or the like) on which the following inscription has been written down:
بِسْمِ ٱللَّهِ ٱلرَّحْمٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ
bismillahi alrrahman alrrahimi
“In the Name of Allah, the All-beneficent, the All-merciful.
الْحَمْدُ للَّهِ رَبِّ ٱلْعَالَمِينَ
alhamdu lillahi rabbi al`alamina
All praise is due to Allah, the Lord of the Worlds.

The Beneficent, the Merciful.

Not (the path) of those upon whom Your wrath is brought down,

and his pure and immaculate Household.

(8) On three pieces of sugar, the following three phrases may be written down and the feverish person may eat them in the mornings of three days as the first meal, each piece a day:
The inscription on the first piece of sugar is this:

`aqadtu bi'idhni allahi
I will be tied up by the permission of Allah.

The inscription on the second piece of sugar is this:

The inscription on the third piece of sugar is this:
سَكَنْتُ بِإِذْنِ ٱللَّهِ
sakantu bi'idhni allahi
I will be calmed down by the permission of Allah.
Twenty-eighth:against Tenesmus
It is reported that a man complained to Imam Musa al-Kazim (`a) about suffering from continuous tenesmus (i.e. a frequent, excessive, and painful desire to defecate). As treatment, the Imam (`a) taught the man to say the following supplicatory prayer after the Night Prayer:

اللَّهُمَّ مَا كَانَ مِنْ خَيْرٍ فَمِنْكَ
allahumma ma kana min khayrin faminka
O Allah, whatsoever good thing I have ever experienced has been from You
لاَ حَمْدَ لِي فِيهِ
la hamda li fihi
and I have no praiseworthy thing about it.
وَمَا عَمِلْتُ مِنْ سُوءٍ فَقَدْ حَذَّرْتَنِيهِ
wa ma `amiltu min su'in faqad hadhdhartanihi
As for whatsoever evil I have done, You have already warned me against it;
لاَ عُذْرَ لِي فِيهِ
la `udhra li fihi
therefore, I am not excused in doing it at all.
اللَّهُمَّ إِنِّي أَعُوذُ بِكَ أَنْ أَتَّكِلَ عَلَىٰ مَا لاَ حَمْدَ لِي فِيهِ
allahumma inni a`udhu bika an attakila `ala ma la hamda li fihi
O Allah, I thus pray Your protection against that I rely upon things that I have nopraiseworthy interference it them
أَوْ آمَنَ مِمَّا لاَ عُذْرَ لِي فِيهِ
aw amana mimma la `udhra li fihi
or that I feel secure against things that I am unexcused in committing them.
Twenty-ninth:Stomach Gurgling
Imam Musa al-Kazim (`a) is also reported to have advised the same previous supplicatory prayer to be said after the Night Prayer by those who suffer from stomach gurgling. [A man said to him, “I suffer from stomach gurgling that never stops. Therefore, I feel embarrassed when people to whom I speak hear the sounds of such gurgling. So, please pray Allah to cure me of it.]
Imam al-Sadiq (`a), advising those who suffer from stomach gurgling, said, “Black cumin may be mixed with honey and then eaten.”
Thirtieth:Leprosy
Yunus has reported that whitish scales between the eyes affected him. He therefore complained about this disease to Imam al-Sadiq (`a) who, leading him to a treatment, said: You may pure yourself ceremonially, offer a two-unit prayer, and say this (supplicatory prayer):

يَا اللَّهُ يَا رَحْمَٰنُ يَا رَحِيمُ
ya allahu ya rahmanu ya rahimu
O Allah! O All-beneficent! O All-merciful!
يَا سَمِيعَ ٱلدَّعَوَاتِ
ya sami`a aldda`awati
O Hearer of prayers!
يَا مُعْطِيَ ٱلْخَيْرَاتِ
ya mu`tiya alkhayrati
O Donor of the good!
أَعْطِنِي خَيْرَ ٱلدُّنْيَا وَخَيْرَ ٱلآخِرَةِ
a`tini khayra alddunya wa khayra al-akhirati
(Please) give me the good of this world and the good of the Hereafter,
وَقِنِي شَرَّ ٱلدُّنْيَا وَشَرَّ ٱلآخِرَةِ
wa qini sharra alddunya wa sharra al-akhirati
protect me against the evil of this world and the evil of the Hereafter,
وَأَذْهِبْ عَنِّي مَا أَجِدُ
wa adhhib `anni ma ajidu
and remove from me what I am facing,
فَقَدْ غَاظَنِي ٱلأَمْرُ وَأَحْزَنَنِي
faqad ghazani al-amru wa ahzanani
for this matter has enraged and saddened me.
Reporting the same narration, the author of `Uddat al-Da`i has reported Imam al-Sadiq (`a) as saying:
In the beginning of the last third of night, you may perform the ritual ablution (wudu') and offer the prayer you usually offer at this time. In the second prostration of the first two units of the prayer, you may say the following (supplicatory prayer) while you are in a state of prostration:
يَا عَلِيُّ يَا عَظِيمُ
ya `aliyyu ya `azimu
O Most High! O All-great!
يَا رَحْمٰنُ يَا رَحِيمُ
ya rahmanu ya rahimu
O All-beneficent! O All-merciful!
يَا سَامِعَ ٱلدَّعَوَاتِ
ya sami`a aldda`awati
O Hearer of prayers!
يَا مُعْطِيَ ٱلْخَيْرَاتِ
ya mu`tiya alkhayrati
O Donor of the good!
صَلِّ عَلَىٰ مُحَمَّدٍ وَآلِ مُحَمَّدٍ
salli `ala muhammadin wa ali muhammadin
(Please) send blessings upon Muhammad and the Household of Muhammad,
وَأَعْطِنِي مِنْ خَيْرِ ٱلدُّنْيَا وَٱلآخِرَةِ
wa a`tini min khayri alddunya wal-akhirati ma anta ahluhu
give me from the good of this world and the Hereafter
مَا أَنْتَ أَهْلُهُ
wasrif `anni min sharri alddunya wal-akhirati ma anta ahluhu
in a way that fits You,
وَٱصْرِفْ عَنِّي مِنْ شَرِّ ٱلدُّنْيَا وَٱلآخِرَةِ
wa adhhib `anni hadha alwaja`a
repel from me the evil of this world and the Hereafter
مَا أَنْتَ أَهْلُهُ
fa'innahu qad ghazani wa ahzanani
in a way that fits You,
وَأَذْهِبْ عَنِّي هٰذَا ٱلْوَجَعَ
ya `aliyyu ya `azimu
and remove from me this pain,
فَإِنَّهُ قَدْ غَاظَنِي وَأَحْزَنَنِي
ya rahmanu ya rahimu
for it has enraged and saddened me.
You may pray Almighty Allah so persistently.
Yunus added, “Before I returned to al-Kufah, Almighty Allah has removed from me all the traces of that disease.”
For this disease as well as hemorrhoids, it is reported to write down Surah Yasin with honey in a cup that must be then washed and drunk.
It is also reported to have the soil of Imam al-Husayn’s tomb after being kneaded with rainwater.
It is also reported to overlay the ailed organ with henna and hair-removing powder for those suffering from mange, furuncle, and herpes. For the same diseases, it is reported to recite, write down, and hang on the diseased person the following holy verses and supplicatory statement:
بِسْمِ ٱللَّهِ ٱلرَّحْمٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ
bismillahi alrrahman alrrahimi
“In the Name of Allah, the All-beneficent, the All-merciful.
وَمَثَلُ كَلِمَةٍ خَبِيثَةٍ
wa mathalu kalimatin khabithatin
And the parable of an evil word
كَشَجَرَةٍ خَبِيثَةٍ
kashajaratin khabithatin
is as an evil tree
ٱجْتُثَّتْ مِنْ فَوْقِ ٱلأَرْضِ
ijtuththat min fawqi al-ardi
pulled up from the earth's surface;
مَا لَهَا مِنْ قَرَارٍ
ma laha min qararin
it has no stability.”
مِنْهَا خَلَقْنَاكُمْ
minha khalaqnakum
“From it, We created you
وَفِيهَا نُعِيدُكُمْ
wa fiha nu`idukum
and into it, We shall send you back,
وَمِنْهَا نُخْرِجُكُمْ تَارَةً أُخْرَىٰ
wa minha nukhrijukum taratan ukhra
and from it, will We raise you a second time.”
اللَّهُ أَكْبَرُ وَأَنْتَ لاَ تُكَبَّرُ
allahu akbaru wa anta la tukabbiru
Allah is the Most Great, but you do not glorify His greatness.
اللَّهُ يَبْقَىٰ وَأَنْتَ لاَ تَبْقَىٰ
allahu yabqa wa anta la tabqa
Allah shall remain forever, but you do not remain forever.
وَٱللَّهُ عَلَىٰ كُلِّ شَيْ‏ءٍ قَدِيرٌ
wallahu `ala kulli shay'in qadirun
Allah has power over all things.

Thirtyfirst Private Parts Pains
One of the companions of the Holy Imams (`a) is reported to have uncovered his private parts in a situation where it is improper to uncover one’s private parts; he was therefore affected by an ailment at that place. When he complained about this to Imam al-Sadiq (`a), he was taught to do this supplicatory amulet:
Put your left hand on the ailed part and repeat the following supplicatory prayer three times. If you do, you will be restored to health, Allah willing:

بِسْمِ ٱللَّهِ وَبِٱللَّهِ
bismillahi wa billahi
In the Name of Allah (I begin) and in Allah (I trust).
بَلىٰ مَنْ أَسْلَمَ وَجْهَهُ لِلَّهِ وَهُوَ مُحْسِنٌ
bala man aslama wajhahu lillahi wa huwa muhsinun
“Yes! Whoever submits himself entirely to Allah and he is the doer of good (to others),
فَلَهُ أَجْرُهُ عِنْدَ رَبِّهِ
falahu ajruhu `inda rabbihi
he has his reward from his Lord,
وَلاَ خَوْفٌ عَلَيْهِمْ وَلاَ هُمْ يَحْزَنُونَ
wa la khawfun `alayhim wa la hum yahzanuna
and there is no fear for him nor shall he grieve.”
اللَّهُمَّ إِنِّي أَسْلَمْتُ وَجْهِي إِلَيْكَ
allahumma inni aslamtu wajhi ilayka
O Allah, I have submitted myself to You
وَفَوَّضْتُ أَمْرِي إِلَيْكَ
wa fawwadtu amri ilayka
and entrusted my affair to You.
لاَ مَلْجَأَ وَلاَ مَنْجَىٰ مِنْكَ إِلاَّ إِلَيْكَ
la malja'a wa la manja minka illa ilayka
There is neither shelter nor refuge against You except with You.
Thirty two:Knee Pains
Quoted from the book of Tibb al-A'immah (Medicine of the Imams), Jabir al-Ju`fi reported Imam Muhammad al-Baqir (`a) as saying:
I was present with al-Husayn ibn `Ali (`a) when a man from the descendants of Umayyah, yet he was loyalist to us, came to him and said, “O son of Allah’s Messenger, I could hardly come to you walking because of a pain from which I am suffering in my leg.”
The Imam (`a) asked, “How are you turned back from the supplicatory amulet of al-Hasan ibn `Ali (`a)?”
“What is that, son of Allah’s Messenger?” asked the man.
The Imam (`a) explained, “You may recite the first seven verses of Surah al-Fath.”
Afterwards, the man said, “As I had carried out this direction, I felt no pain at all.”
It is also reported that one who suffers from knee pains may say the following supplicatory prayer after the ritual prayers:

يَا أَجْوَدَ مَنْ أَعْطَىٰ
ya ajwada man a`ta
O most magnanimous of all those who may donate!
يَا خَيْرَ مَنْ سُئِلَ
ya khayra man su'ila
O best of all those who may be besought!
وَيَا أَرْحَمَ مَنِ ٱسْتُرْحِمَ
wa ya arhama man isturhima
O most merciful of all those whose mercy is asked!
إِرْحَمْ ضَعْفِي وَقِلَّةَ حِيلَتِي
irham da`fi wa qillata hilati
(Please) have mercy upon my weakness and my confusion
وَأَعْفِنِي مِنْ وَجَعِي
wa a`fini min waja`i
and release me from my pain.

For those suffering from pains in the legs, it is reportedly recommended to recite the following holy verse seven times over the legs:
وَٱتْلُ مَا أُوحِيَ إِلَيْكَ مِنْ كِتَابِ رَبِّكَ
watlu ma uhiya ilayka min kitabi rabbika
“And recite what has been revealed to you of the Book of your Lord.
لاَ مُبَدِّلَ لِكَلِمَاتِهِ
la mubaddila likalimatihi
There is none who can alter His words
وَلَنْ تَجِدَ مِنْ دُونِهِ مُلْتَحَدًا
wa lan tajida min dunihi multahadan
and you shall not find any refuge besides Him.”
Thirty three: Eye Aches
For those suffering from eye aches, many traditions have recommended saying the following prayer after the ritual obligatory prayers of dawn (subh) and sunset (maghrib):

اللَّهُمَّ إِنِّي أَسْأَلُكَ بِحَقِّ مُحَمَّدٍ وَآلِ مُحَمَّدٍ عَلَيْكَ
allahumma inni as'aluka bihaqqi muhammadin wa ali muhammadin `alayka
O Allah, I beseech You in the name of the right of Muhammad and the Household of Muhammad that is incumbent upon You
أَنْ تُصَلِّيَ عَلَىٰ مُحَمَّدٍ وَآلِ مُحَمَّدٍ
an tusalliya `ala muhammadin wa ali muhammadin
to bless Muhammad and the Household of Muhammad
وَأَنْ تَجْعَلَ ٱلنُّورَ فِي بَصَرِي
wa an taj`ala alnnura fi basari
and to place light in my sight,
وَٱلْبَصِيرَةَ فِي دِينِي
walbasirata fi dini
insight in my faith,
وَٱلْيَقِينَ فِي قَلْبِي
walyaqina fi qalbi
certitude in my heart,
وَٱلإِخْلاَصَ فِي عَمَلِي
wal-ikhlasa fi `amali
sincerity in my deeds,
وَٱلسَّلاَمَةَ فِي نَفْسِي
walssalamata fi nafsi
safety in my self,
وَٱلسَّعَةَ فِي رِزْقِي
walssa`ata fi rizqi
opulence in my sustenance,
وَٱلشُّكْرَ لَكَ أَبَداً مَا أَبْقَيْتَنِي
walshshukra laka abadan ma abqaytani
and thanks for You forever as long as You keep me alive.
Al-Bizanti reported Yunus ibn ²abyan to have said: One day, we visited Imam al-Sadiq (`a) and found him tensely sore-eyed; therefore, we were depressed. The next morning, we visited him while he was completely healed. Surprised by this, we asked him, “May Allah accept us as ransoms for you! Have you treated your eyes with a certain medicine?” The Imam answered, “Yes, I have. I have treated them with the best of all medicines.” “What is that?” we asked. The Imam (`a) answered, “It is a supplicatory amulet.” We therefore wrote down that supplicatory amulet, which is as follows:
أَعُوذُ بِعِزَّةِ ٱللَّهِ
a`udhu bi`izzati allahi
I pray the protection of Allah’s almightiness,
وَأَعُوذُ بِقُوَّةِ ٱللَّهِ

allahumma rabba almuti`ina
O Allah! O Lord of the obedient!
When we asked the Imam (`a) about the meaning of jam` allah, he said, “It means the wholeness of Allah.”
It is also reported that one who suffers from eye pains may recite ªyah al-Kursi and believe in his inner self that the reciting of this holy verse will cure him of that pain.

Before reciting this holy verse, one suffering from eye pains is advised to put his hand on his eye and say the following:
أُعِيذُ نُورَ بَصَرِي
u`idhu nura basari
For the light of my sight, I pray
بِنُورِ ٱللَّهِ ٱلَّذِي لاَ يُطْفَأُ
binuri allahi alladhi la yutfa'u
the protection of Allah’s light that is inextinguishable.


A Supplicatory Amulet against Nyctalopia
For those who suffer from nyctalopia (i.e. reduction or loss of vision in dim light), they are recommended to write down ªyah al-Nur several times (on a sheet of paper) in a cup, wash it, put it in a flask, and use it as eye ointment.Ayah al-Nur is the following:
اللَّهُ نُورُ ٱلسَّمَاوَاتِ وَٱلأَرْضِ
allahu nuru alssamawati wa(a)l-ardi
Allah is the Light of the heavens and the earth.
مَثَلُ نُورِهِ كَمِشْكَاةٍ فِيهَا مِصْبَاحٌ
mathalu nurihi kamishkatin fiha misbahun
The similitude of His light is as a niche wherein a lamp is.
ٱلْمِصْبَاحُ فِي زُجَاجَةٍ
al-misbahu fi zujajatin
The lamp is in a glass.
ٱلزُّجَاجَةُ كَأَنَّهَا كَوْكَبٌ دُرِّيٌّ
alzzujajatu ka'annaha kawkabun durriyyun
The glass is as it were a shining star.
يُوقَدُ مِنْ شَجَرَةٍ مُبَارَكَةٍ زَيْتُونِةٍ
yuqadu min shajaratin mubarakatin zaytuniatin
(This lamp is) kindled from a blessed tree, an olive
لاَ شَرْقِيَّةٍ وَلاَ غَرْبِيَّةٍ
la sharqiyyatin wa la gharbiyyatin
neither of the east nor of the west,
يَكَادُ زَيْتُهَا يُضِيءُ
yakadu zaytuha yudi'u
whose oil would almost glow forth (of itself)
وَلَوْ لَمْ تَمْسَسْهُ نَارٌ
wa law lam tamsas-hu narun
though no fire touched it.
نُورٌ عَلَى نُورٍ
nurun `ala nurin
Light upon light.
يَهْدِي ٱللَّهُ لِنُورِهِ مَنْ يَشَاءُ
yahdi allahu linurihi man yasha'u
Allah guides to His light whom He will.
وَيَضْرِبُ ٱللَّهُ ٱلأَمْثَالَ لِلْنَّاسِ
wa yadribu allahu al-amthala lilnnasi
And Allah speaks to mankind in allegories,
وَٱللَّهُ بِكُلِّ شَيْءٍ عَلِيمٌ
wa(a)llahu bikulli shay'in `alimun
for Allah is Knower of all things.

It is also reported that whoever recites the Holy Qur'an from copies of the Holy Qur'an, will enjoy strong sight.

It is also reported that whoever repeats the following holy verse every day, his eyes will be saved from all optical troubles:
فَجَعَلْنَاهُ سَمِيعاً بَصِيراً
faja`alnahu sami`an basiran
“So, We make him hearing, seeing.”

Al-Kaf`ami says: According to experiments, to seek the advocacy of Imam Musa al-Kazim (`a) is useful for cure of eye pains as well as the troubles of the other organs.x

For those suffering from nose bleed, it is recommended to pour cold water on their heads and foreheads.
Thirty four:Harmel
The Holy Prophet (s) is also reported to have said, “For each tree, leaf, and fruit of harmel (also harmala; a plant having aromatic seeds containing various alkaloids and used locally for medicines, oil, and dye),([2]) there is an angel entrusted with them until they are wrecked. Verily, in the root and branches of these trees is an amulet against distress and sorcery. In the grains of this plant, there is remedy of seventy-two maladies. So, treat yourselves with this plant and with olibanum.”
Thirty five Epilepsy
It is reported that when Imam al-Rida (`a) once passed by an epileptic person, he ordered a cup of water to be brought to him. The Imam (`a) then recited Surah al-Fatihah, Surah al-Falaq, and Surah al-Nas on the cup and expectorated in it. He then ordered them to pour that water on the head and face of the epileptic person. Immediately, the man restored consciousness. The Imam (`a) then said to him, “This will never affect you again.”

Diabetes & Coronary heart disease
After Fajr recite this Ayat 7 times on water & drink it for Diabetes & 11 times by keeping hand on chest
وَ قُلْ رَبِّ أَدْخِلْنِي مُدْخَلَ صِدْقٍ وَ أَخْرِجْنِي مُخْرَجَ صِدْقٍ وَ اجْعَلْ لِي مِنْ لَدُنْكَ سُلْطاناً نَصِيراً
And say: ‘My Lord! cause me to enter a goodly entrance and cause me to go out (of) a goodly exit, and grant me from Your part a (powerful) authority to assist (me)’. Al-Israa (الإسراء)‎ - 80
