dua for recovery
Health is a blessing from God. Again, the sins of the believers are forgiven through illness. Just as one should pray to Allah for healing, one should also pray to Allah for recovery from one’s illness.
Dua for Blessings and speedy recovery from disease:
It is narrated that Aisha r.a. said that when anyone among them had an illness, the Prophet s.a.w. used to rub the area of the pain and recite the following dua for protection:
اللَّهُمَّ ربَّ النَّاسِ ، أَذْهِب الْبَأسَ ، واشْفِ ، أَنْتَ الشَّافي لا شِفَاءَ إِلاَّ شِفَاؤُكَ ، شِفاءً لا يُغَادِرُ سقَماً
Allahumma Rabban-naas, azhibil-ba’s, washfi antash-Shaafi laa shifaa’a illaa shifaa’uka, shifaa’an laa yughaadiru saqamaa
“O Allah, Lord of mankind, do away with my suffering. Heal (me) as You are the only Healer and there is no cure except that of Yours, it is that which leaves no ailment behind”
dua for good health
Hazrat Abdullah Ibn Amr (may Allah be pleased with him) said: The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) used to recite this prayer in large numbers to build good health and character.
اَللهُمَّ اِنِّىْ أَسْألُكَ الصِّحْةَ وَ الْعِفَّةَ وَ الْاَمَانَةَ وَ حُسْنُ الْخُلُقِ وَ الرِّضَاءِ بِالْقَدْرِ
Pronunciation: ‘Allahumma inni asalukas sihta wal iffata wal amanata wa husnul khulukbi war ridai bilkwadri.’
Meaning: O Allah! I wish you good health, good character, trustworthiness, good nature, and satisfaction of fortune.’ (Al-Adab al-Mufrad)
dua for protection from illness
This dua for protection from illness should be our constant prayer at this time – and it carries an important reminder that our refuge is always in Allah (SWT):
اللَّهُمَّ إِنِّي أَعُوذُ بِكَ مِنَ الْبَرَصِ، وَالْجُنُونِ، وَالْجُذَامِ، وَمِنْ سَيِّئِ الأَسْقَامِ
Pronunciation: “Allah humma inni a’udhu bika minal-barasi, wal-jununi, wal-judhaami, wa min sayyi’il-asqaami.”
Meaning: “O Allah, I seek refuge in you from leprosy, insanity, elephantiasis, and the worst of diseases.” [Abu Dawud]
dua for depression
‘O Allah, it is Your mercy that I hope for, so do not leave me in charge of my affairs even for a blink of an eye, and rectify for me all of my affairs. None has the right to be worshipped except You.’
اللَّهُمَّ رَحْمَتَكَ أَرْجُو فَلَا تَكِلْنِي إِلَى نَفْسِي طَرْفَةَ عَيْنٍ وَأَصْلِحْ لِي شَأْنِي كُلَّهُ لَا إِلَهَ إِلَا أَنْتَ
Allahumma raḥmataka arju fala takilni ila nafsi ṭarfata `ayn, wa aslih li sha’ni kullahu, la illaha illa ant.
‘O Ever-Living, O Sustainer, in Your Mercy I seek relief.’
يَا حَيُّ يَا قَيُّوْمُ بِرَحْمَتِكَ أَسْتَغِيْث
Ya Hayyu Ya Qayyoom birahmatika astagheeth
Dua of Prophet Yunus (A.S.): ‘None has the right to be worshipped except You. How perfect You are. Verily, I was among the wrong-doers.’ – (Al Anbiya, 87)
لَآ إِلٰهَ إِلَّآ أَنْتَ سُبْحَانَكَ إِنِّيْ كُنْتُ مِنَ الظَّالِمِيْنَ
La illaha illa anta subhanak ‘inny kuntu min aldhaalimeen
Of this dua, Prophet Muhammad ﷺ is reported to have said: “No Muslim supplicates with it for anything, ever, except Allah responds to him.” (Tirmidhi)
‘To Allah, we belong, and unto Him is our return. O Allah, recompense me for my affliction and replace it for me with something better.’
إِنَّا للهِ وَإِنَّا إِلَيْهِ رَاجِعُوْنَ، اللَّهمَّ أْجُرْنِي فِي مُصِيْبَتِي، وَاخْلُفْ لِي خَيْرا ً مِنْهَا
Inna lillahi wa inna ilayhi raji’un. Allahumma-u’jurni fi musibati, wa akhlif li khairan minha.
dua for pain
Uthman Ibn Abi Al-’As r.a. reported: I complained to the Messenger of Allah s.a.w. about a pain I had in my body. The Messenger of Allah s.a.w. said, “Place your hand where you feel pain and say: ‘Bismillah (In the Name of Allah)’ three times; and then repeat seven times: ‘A’udhu bi’izzatillahi wa qudratihi min sharri ma ajidu wa ‘uhadhiru (I seek refuge with Allah and with His Power from the evil that afflicts me and that which I apprehend).”
As we put our hand on the area of pain with the intention to find relief, recite the following:
بِسْمِ اللَّهِ x3
In the Name of Allah
أَعُوذُ بِعِزَّةِ اللَّهِ وَقُدْرَتِهِ مِنْ شَرِّ مَا أَجِدُ وَأُحَاذِرُ x7
‘A’udhu bi’izzatillahi wa qudratihi min sharri ma ajidu wa ‘uhadhiru
I seek refuge with Allah and with His Power from the evil that afflicts me and that which I apprehend.
