Dua When Experiencing Bodily Pain – 2

When one is experiencing bodily pain, one should rub his right hand on the area which he is experiencing pain while reciting the following dua seven times:

أَعُوذُ بِعِزَّةِ الله وَقُدْرَتِهِ، مِنْ شَرِّ مَا أَجِدُ

I seek refuge in the greatness of Allah Ta‘ala and His power from the evil that I am experiencing.

عن عثمان بن أبي العاص، أنه أتى النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم قال عثمان: وبي وجع قد كاد يهلكني قال: فقال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم: امسحه بيمينك سبع مرات، وقل: أعوذ بعزة الله وقدرته، من شر ما أجد قال: ففعلت ذلك، فأذهب الله عز وجل ما كان بي، فلم أزل آمر به أهلي وغيرهم (سنن أبي داود، الرقم: 3891)

It is reported regarding Hazrat Uthmaan bin Aas (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) that he once complained to Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) regarding the severe body pains that he was experiencing. He said, “(O Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam)), I am experiencing severe body pains which I feel that it is likely that this pain will lead to my death.” Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said to him, “Recite the following dua seven times while placing your right hand on the area you experience pain and rubbing it seven times:

أَعُوذُ بِعِزَّةِ الله وَقُدْرَتِهِ، مِنْ شَرِّ مَا أَجِدُ

Hazrat Uthmaan bin Aas (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) further says, “I practiced upon this and Allah Ta‘ala had granted me relief from the pain I was experiencing. Thus, I would continuously advise my family and others to practice upon this.”
