Duas When Visiting The Sick

Dua One

لَا بَأْسَ طَهُوْرٌ إِنْ شَاءَ اللهُ

There is no need to worry, insha-Allah through this sickness, you will be cleansed and purified. (i.e. There is absolutely no need for you to worry or fear. You are merely undergoing a cleansing process. Spiritually, you are being cleansed from your sins, and physically, your body is being cleansed from toxins. Hence, when this sickness has come to you as a mercy in disguise from the side of Allah Ta‘ala, there is no need for you to worry and grieve).[1]

Dua Two

Recite the following dua seven times:

أَسْألُ اللهَ الْعَظِيْمَ رَبَّ الْعَرْشِ الْعَظِيْمِ أَنْ يَّشْفِيَكَ

I beseech Allah Ta‘ala, the Almighty, the Rabb of the great throne, to cure you.

عن ابن عباس عن النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم قال: من عاد مريضا لم يحضر أجله فقال عنده سبع مرار: أسأل الله العظيم رب العرش العظيم أن يشفيك إلا عافاه الله من ذلك المرض (سنن أبي داود، الرقم: ٣١٠٦، سنن الترمذي، الرقم: ٢٠٨٣) [2]

Hazrat Ibnu Abbaas (radhiyallahu ‘anhuma) reports that Hazrat Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said, “Whoever recites the following dua seven times upon a sick person who is not destined to die in that sickness, Allah Ta‘ala will cure him from that sickness:

أَسْألُ اللهَ الْعَظِيْمَ رَبَّ الْعَرْشِ الْعَظِيْمِ أَنْ يَّشْفِيَكَ

Dua Three

أَذْهِبِ الْبَأْسَ رَبَّ النَّاسِ وَاشْفِ أَنْتَ الشَّافِيْ لَا شِفَاءَ إِلَّا شِفَاؤُكَ شِفَاءً لَا يُغَادِرُ سَقَمًا

Remove the affliction, O Rabb of all people, and grant cure – You alone are the One who can grant cure, there is no cure besides Your cure – (grant) such a cure which will leave no sickness.[3]

Dua Four

بِاسْمِ اللهِ أَرْقِيْكَ مِنْ كُلِّ شَيْءٍ يُؤْذِيْكَ مِنْ شَرِّ كُلِّ نَفْسٍ أَوْ عَيْنٍ حَاسِدٍ اللهُ يَشْفِيْكَ بِاسْمِ اللهِ أَرْقِيْكَ

In the name of Allah Ta‘ala I recite (these words) upon you (seeking cure from Allah Ta‘ala) from everything which is harming you – from every (evil) soul or jealous eye. May Allah Ta‘ala grant you cure. In the name of Allah Ta‘ala I recite upon you.[4]
