Chapter 145

Supplication for the Sick




Hadith 901


Aishah radiyallahu anhu reported: When a person complained to the Prophet Sallalahu aleihi wa about an ailment or suffered from a sore or a wound, the Prophet Sallalahu aleihi wa would touch the ground with his forefinger and then raise it (Sufyan bin `Uyainah, the narrator, demonstrated this with his forefinger) and would recite:

`Bismillahi, turbatu ardina, biriqati ba`dina, yushfa bihi saqimuni, bi 'idhni Rabbina' (With the Name of Allah, the dust of our ground mixed with the saliva of some of us would cure our patient with the permission of our Rabb.'' [Al-Bukhari and Muslim].


Commentary: The Prophet Sallalahu aleihi wa would put his forefinger on earth and then mix his spittle with the dust sticking to it. Afterwards, he would put it on the patient's pain-spot or wound and utter the said supplication. This simple act would cure the patient. Some believe that it was peculiar only to the Prophet Sallalahu aleihi wa and was indeed his miracle because the particular dust was of Al-Madinah's soil with the Prophet's spittle being of a unique quality. But Ibn Hajar differs from this view. Spittle and dust, according to him, are simply external means and the curative effect in them comes from Allah Alone.

Secondly, we may turn to the pious people to seek their blessings and prayers for the removal of our ailments and troubles, provided the spiritual treatment is bereft of amulets and other polytheistic ways.

Hadith 902


Aishah radiyallah anha reported: When the Prophet Sallalahu aleihi wa visited any ailing member of his family, he would touch the sick person with his right hand and would supplicate:

"Allahumma Rabban-nasi, adhhibil-ba'sa, washfi, Antash-Shafi, la shifa'a illa shifa'uka, shifaan la yughadiru saqaman [O Allah! the Rabb of mankind! Remove this disease and cure (him or her)! You are the Great Curer. There is no cure but through You, which leaves behind no disease].'' [Al-Bukhari and Muslim].


Commentary:
The word "Ya`udu'' (enquired about the patient's health or visited) occurs in the Hadith text quoted by Imam An-Nawawi. But according to Al-Bukhari, this word is "Yuawwidu'' which, says Ibn Hajar, is synonymous to the word "Yarqee'' (blew over the patient).

Hadith 903


Anas radiyallahu anhu reported: I said to Thabit radiyallahu anhu Should I not perform Ruqyah (i.e., recite supplication or Qur'anic Ayat and blow) over you, such supplication as was practised by the Messenger of Allah Sallalahu aleihi wa?'' He said: "Please do so.'' Anas radiyallahu anhu supplicated:

"Allahumma Rabban-nasi, mudh-hibal-ba'si, ishfi Antash-Shafi, la shafiya illa Anta, shifa'an la yughadiru saqaman [O Allah! the Rabb of mankind! Take away this disease and cure (him or her). You are the Curer. There is no cure except through You. Cure (him or her), a cure that leaves no disease].'' [Al-Bukhari].


Commentary:
The said Hadith testifies that the Prophet Sallalahu aleihi wa and the Companions had certainly `blown over' the patients. There is no doubt about that. Yet, the act of blowing over must be based on the Names and Attributes of Allah and the Prophetic prayers or on Qur'anic Surat and Ayat. Besides, one should have the firm belief that the secondary causes cannot yield the desired effect unless Allah wills so.

Hadith 904


Sa`d bin Abu Waqqas radiyallahu anhu reported: The Messenger of Allah Sallalahu aleihi wa visited me during my illness and supplicated,  

"O Allah! Cure Sa'd. O Allah! Cure Sa'd. O' Allah! Cure Sa'd.'' [Muslim].


Commentary: To pray for the health and recovery of the patient, particularly uttering his name, is commendable. Furthermore, one should repeatedly pray to Allah and beseech Him with supplication till He responds.

Hadith 905


Abu `Abdullah bin Abul-‘As radiyallahu anhu reported: I complained to the Messenger of Allah Sallalahu aleihi wa about a pain I had in my body. The Messenger of Allah Sallalahu aleihi wa said,

"Place your hand where you feel pain and say: `Bismillah (With 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).''' [Muslim].


Commentary: This Hadith tells us it is not necessary that a patient should exclusively get Ruqyah from others; rather he can also do Ruqyah himself by reciting the Prophet's supplications.

Hadith 906


Ibn `Abbas (Radhi Allahu Anhuma) reported: The Prophet Sallalahu aleihi wa said,

"He who visits a sick person who is not on the point of death and supplicates seven times: As'alullahal-`Azima Rabbal-`Arshil-`Azimi, an yashfiyaka (I beseech Allah the Great, the Rabb of the Great Throne, to heal you), Allah will certainly heal him from that sickness.'' [Abu Dawud and At-Tirmidhi].


Commentary:
There is always a great certainty that Allah will respond to a supplication which springs from a sincere, veracious heart. One should, therefore, pray for a patient with full conviction and reassurance of heart. Moreover, the Prophet's Sallalahu aleihi wa prayers have special effect and grace and therefore their original wordings should be uttered.

Hadith 907


Ibn `Abbas (Radhi Allahu Huma) reported: The Prophet Sallalahu aleihi wa visited a Bedouin who was sick. Whenever he visited an ailing person, he would say,

"La ba'sa, tahurun in sha' Allah [No harm, (it will be a)purification (from sins), if Allah wills].''
[Al-Bukhari].


Commentary: According to this Hadith, a patient should be told that his disease will purge out his sins. To sit beside the sick, to comfort his heart and to say a few words of sympathy to him was the Prophet's  Sallalahu aleihi wa practice.

Hadith 908


Abu Sa`id Al-Khudri radiyallahu anhu reported: Jibril (Gabriel) (Alayhi Salam) came to the Prophet Sallalahu aleihi wa and said: "O Muhammad! Do you feel sick?'' He Sallalahu aleihi wa said,

"Yes.''

Jibril supplicated thus (i.e., he performed Ruqyah): "Bismillahi arqika, min kulli shay'in yu'dhika, min sharri kulli nafsin aw `ayni hasidi, Allahu yashfika, bismillahi arqika. [With the Name of Allah. I recite over you (to cleanse you) from all that troubles you, and from every harmful mischief and from the evil of the eyes of an envier. Allah will cure you; and with the Name of Allah, I recite over you].'' [Muslim].


Commentary: This Hadith clearly tells us that the Prophet Sallalahu aleihi wa was not free from the basic attributes of human nature and occasionally he also fell ill. Angel Jibril (Gabriel) (Alayhi Salam) therefore prayed for his health and safety against all those things which could harm him. These prayers should be recited after the Prophet's practice.

Hadith 909


Abu Sa`id Al-Khudri and Abu Hurairah (Radhi Allahu Huma) reported: The Messenger of Allah Sallalahu aleihi wa said,

"If a person says: `La ilaha illallahu wallahu Akbar (There is no true god except Allah and Allah is Greatest)', his Rabb responds to him and affirms: `(Yes!) There is no true god except I, and I am the Greatest.'

When he says: `La ilaha illallahu Wahdahu la sharika Lahu (There is no true god except Allah, the One, He has no partner).' Allah Subhanahu wa Ta’ala affirms: `(Yes!) There is no true god except I. I have no partner.'

When he says: `La ilaha illallahu Lahul mulku wa Lahul-hamdu (the sovereignty belongs to Him and all the praise is due to Him).' He Allah Subhanahu wa Ta’ala  affirms: `(Yes!) There is no true god except I, Mine is the praise and to Me belongs the sovereignty.'

When he says: `La ilaha illallahu wa la hawla wa la quwwata illa Billah (There is no true god except Allah, and there is no might and power but with Allah).' He Allah Subhanahu wa Ta’ala  affirms: `(Yes!) There is no true god except I, and there is no might and power but with Me.'''
 

The Messenger of Allah Sallalahu aleihi wa added, "He who recites this during his illness and dies, will not be touched by the Fire (Hell).'' [At-Tirmidhi].


Commentary: This Hadith points out the excellence of the words mentioned above. This is so because of great meaning they have, namely the firm belief in Allah, His Oneness and Glorification; that to Him Alone we should return, upon Him Alone we should rely, and to Him Alone we should express gratefulness. If somebody utters them during his illness, his life is sure to come to an end in a good way, that is, he will go to Jannah.
