dua for sick person
Prophet Ayyub a.s was blessed with abundant wealth, land and children. He was then tested by having all of those, including his health, taken away from him. All his limbs were not free from disease except for his tongue and heart which he used to remember Allah s.w.t.
People cut ties with him due to his illness and he was expelled from the city with only his wife who was there to support him. Prophet Ayyub a.s remained patient and grateful despite his situation. He sought help from Allah s.w.t by reciting the dua in Surah Al-Anbiyaa’ (21:83). The following Dua is an excerpt from the verse:
رَبِّي أَنِّي مَسَّنِيَ الضُّرُّ وَأَنْتَ أَرْحَمُ الرَّاحِمِينَ
Robbi annee massaniyad-durru wa-anta arhamur-raahimeen
My Lord. Indeed, adversity has touched me, and you are the Most Merciful of the merciful.
dua for sickness
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.
dua for sick person in hospital
لَا بَأْسَ طَهُورٌ إِنْ شَاءَ اللَّهُ

أَسْأَلُ اللَّهَ الْعَظِيمَ رَبَّ الْعَرْشِ الْعَظِيمِ أَنْ يَشْفِيَكَ
As’alullaahal-‘Adheema Rabbal-‘Arshil-‘Adheemi ‘an yashfiyaka.
I ask Allah who is the Lofty and the Lord of the Mighty Throne that He cures you\n(Prophet Mohammad (SAW.) said that by reciting this dua seven times, the ill person will regain his health and if death occurs then that (death) is a different issue (i.e. death is written it cannot be prevented))
dua for sickness and pain
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
