بسْم الله الذي لا يَضُرُّ معَ اسمِهِ شيءٌ في الأرضِ ولا في السَّماءِ وهُوَ السَّميعُ العَليمُ
Prophet’s Guidance on treating pain in general with Islamic Prayer formulas
روى مسلم في “صحيحه” عن عثمان بن أبي العاص، “أنه شكى إلى رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم وجعاً يجده في جسده منذ أسلم، فقال النبيُّ صلى الله عليه وسلم: “ضع يَدَكَ عَلَى الَّذي تَأَلَّمَ مِنْ جَسَدِكَ وقُل: بِسْمِ الله ثلاثاً، وقُلْ سبع مرات: أعوذُ بِعِزَّةِ الله وقُدرَتهِ منْ شَرِّ مِا أجدُ وأُحاَذِر”
Muslim [lbn Majah, Ahmad and Al-Tabarani} narrated in his Sahih that Uthman bin Abu Al-Aa’s Radi Allaho Anh complained to Prophet Muhammad Sallallaho Alaihe Wasallam from a pain in his body that he suffered from ever since he became a Muslim. Prophet Muhammad Sallallaho Alaihe Wasallam said:
Place your hand on the painful area of your body & say Bismillah (In the Name of Allah), thrice. Then say seven times,
أعوذُ بِعِزَّةِ الله وقُدرَتهِ منْ شَرِّ مِا أجدُ وأُحاَذِر
“I seek refuge with Allah’s Might and Power from the evil of what I am suffering from, and because of which I have become worry.”
The remedy mentioned here entails reciting Allah’s Name, relating all matters to Him and seeking refuge with His Might and Power from the pain, and will surely eradicate the pain. In addition, repeating the supplication contained in the remedy frequently will make it even more effective and successful just as the case when the medication is frequently administered until the disease is fully eradicated.
وفي “الصحيحين”: أن النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم، “كان يعوِّذُ بعض أهله، يمسح بيده اليمنى، ويقول: “اللهمَّ رَبَّ الناس، أَذهِب الباَسَ، واشفِ أنت الشّافي، لا شِفَاء إلا شفاؤُك، شفاءً لا يغادرُ سَقَماً”
In the Sahihain, it is narrated that Prophet Muhammad Sallallaho Alaihe Wasallam used to visit some of his family members (who were ill) and would touch them with his right hand, saying :
“O Allah, the Lord of mankind, Do away with the complaint and Bring about the cure. You Alone Bring the cure, and there is no cure except Your cure, a cure that does not leave illnesses.”
The last Islamic prayer formula includes begging Allah by His Perfect Lordship and Mercy to bring about the cure. The Islamic prayer formula affirms that Allah is the only One Who Brings the cure and that there is no cure except the cure that He brings about. The Islamic prayer formula includes begging Allah by His Oneness, Kindness and Lordship.
