Recite Seven Times for Cure

“Whenever the Prophet (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) visited a patient to enquire after his health, he (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) would sit at the head of the ailing person and repeat the following prayer seven times: ‘As-alullahal azeema rabbal arshil azeemi an-yashfiyaka.’ The Prophet (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said, ‘The patient will certainly be restored to health if this prayer is offered seven times, except in case the hour of his death has come.’” [Mishkat]

The Prophet (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) taught us several Duas that could be recited for someone who is ill. This is one of them. It means: “I beseech Allah Almighty Who is the Lord of the exalted heavens to grant you health.”

When we visit a sick person we should make Dua for him/her. We should recite the Dua with total conviction in Allah’s powers and with the certainty that no doctor or medicine can help unless Allah (subhana wa ta’ala) wills it to be so. Be certain that while Allah (subhana wa ta’ala) recommended using medical treatment, He does not depend on it to cure anyone.
