Dua for shifa – supplication for healing physical, mental and spiritual sicknesses

Bismillah Ar Rahmnan Ar Rahim

Today, many people are suffering from unknown maladies. Doctors are unable to  diagnose many health problems.

More and more people are suffering from cancer and have lost all hopes of living a healthy life.

Muslims know that the Qur’an is a shifa but many do not know how to use the Quran as a shifa

And often, we are so helpless that you do not know how to react to our health problems.

We often want to try   anything, any remedy which can be harmful for us in the long run.

Before we go further, I would like to start with the manner of visiting the sick, by saying this dua:


When the Noble Prophet (PBUH) would go to visit a sick person, then he would say: لاَ بَاسَ طَهُوْرٌ اِنْ شَآءَ اللهُ

Laa Baasa Tahoorun Insha Al’laahu.

“Don’t worry, it is a means of purification, If Al’laah Wills.”

Dua for Healing/Cure from Sickness

Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) used to read and blow over those who were ill

اَللَّهُمَّ رَبَّ النَّاسِ مُذْهِبَ الْبَاسِ اِشْفِ اَ نْتَ الشَّافِىْ لاَ شَافِىْ اِلاَّ اَ نْتَ شِفَاءً لاَيُغَادِرُ سُقْمًا

Al’laah hum’ma Rab’ban Naasi Muzhibal Baasi – Ishfi Anta Shaafi – Laa Shaafi il’la Anta Shifa’an Laa Yughaadiru Suqma

O Allah, Lord and Sustainer of mankind, remove his difficulty and cure him. You are the only One who cures. There is no cure but Yours. Grant such (complete) cure that leaves no trace of illness. Ameen.

  • O Allah, help our ummah who is suffering in this End of Times
  • We are spiritually sick and we are physically sick. This sickness has touched our soul, mind and body.
  • O my Allah, so many of our brothers and sisters, and our parents are sick and ailing. They are in hospitals. Some are in nursing homes and old-age homes.
  • O Allah, grant shifa to those who are sick and ailing.
  • Ya Wadud, Ya Wadud Ya Wadud
  • O our beloved Allah, shifa is in Your hands.
  • O Allah, we know that there is effect in du’aa and there is effect in medication, but O Allah, shifa is in Your hands.
  • O Allah, we know that sometimes sickness is a rahmat and a blessing in a disguised form, but we are extremely weak.
  • O Allah, even if such sickness is a rahmat, O Allah, change it to the rahmat of good health.
  • But O Allah, we know that most of our sicknesses, depression and anxieties are because of our sins.
  • O Allah allow us to do good deeds and replace these ailments by the love of Your DEEN
  • O Allah grant us shifa so that we may be active believers in YOUR DEEN
  • O Allah protect us against our enemies and opponents, those who work day and night to make us sick
  • O Alalh protect us against all forms of sihr and magic
  • O Allah, grant us shifa from all sicknesses and ailments – physical and spiritual.
  • O Allah, bless us with physical health, mental health and spiritual health.
  • O Allah make us more powerful than our enemies’ trick and plans
  • O Allah show us the way to Your Mercy
  • A’meen for all of us Ameen
