Muslim [Ibn Ma’jah, Ahmad, and At-Tabarani} narrated in his Sahih that ‘’Uthman bin Abu AI-‘As complained to the Prophet from a pain in his body that he suffered from ever since he became a Muslim. The Prophet said:
“Place your hand on the affected area in your body and say, ‘In the Name of Allah,’ thrice. Then say, ‘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 worried, seven times.”
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. 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.
In the Sahihain it is narrated that the Prophet used to visit some of his family members (who were ill) and would touch them with his right hand, saying:
” 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 for 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.
