‘Aishah reports that the Prophet, peace be upon him, used to seek refuge in Allah for some of his family members. He used to touch them with his right hand, saying: Allahahuma Rabbin nas azhhabal ba’sa, ashfi wa antashafi, la shifa’ illa shifa’uka shifa’ la yughadiru saqma “O Allah! The Sustainer of mankind! Remove the illness, cure the disease. You are the One Who cures. There is no cure except Your cure. Grant (us) a cure that leaves no illness.” (Bukhari and Muslim)

‘Uthman ibn Abu Al-‘As relates that “once he complained of pain in his body to Allah’s Messenger, peace be upon him. The Messenger of Allah, peace be upon him, said: ‘Put your hand where you feel pain in your body and say, “Bismillah (in the name of Allah),” and say, “A ‘uzhu bi ‘izzatillah wa qudratihi min sharri ma ajidu wa uhazhiru (I seek refuge in the might of Allah and in His Power from the evil that I find and that I fear),” seven times’.  ‘Uthman continued: “I did that a few times and Allah removed my pain. I always advised my family and others to do the same.” (Muslim)

Muhammad ibn Salim reported: “Thabit Al-Banani said to me: ‘O Muhammad ! When you have any pain, put your hand where you feel pain, then say: Bismallaha’uzhu bi’izatillah min shari ma ajidu min waj’i hazha

“In the Name of Allah! I seek refuge in Allah’s might from the evil of this pain. “Then remove your hand, and repeat the same for an odd number of times. Then he said to me that Anas ibn Malik had told him that Allah’s Messenger, peace be upon him, had taught this to him.” (Tirmizhi)

‘Abdullah ibn ‘Abbas reported that the Prophet, peace be upon him, said: “When someone visits a sick person whose time of death has not come, and says seven times: As’alu Allah al ‘azim Rabbil ‘arshil azim an yshfiaka ‘I ask Allah, the Mighty, the Lord of the mighty throne, to cure you, Allah will cure him of that illness.” (Reported by Abu Daw’ud and Tirmizhi, who says it is a hasan (good) hadith. Al-Hakim says that it is sound according to Bukhari’s criteria)

‘Abdullah ibn ‘Abbas also narrates that “the Prophet, peace be upon him, used to seek protection for Al-Hasan and Al-Hussain (his grandsons) with the words: A’uzhukuma bi kalamatillahi tamah min kulli shaitanin wa hamatin wa min kulli ‘ainin lamatin ‘I seek protection for you with Allah’s perfect words from every satan and crawling creature and every evil eye.’ He also added: ‘Your father (Ibrahim) sought protection for Ismai’l and Ishaq with these same words’.” (Bukhari)

Sa’d ibn Abi Waqqas reports that “the Prophet, peace be upon him, visited him while he was sick and said: ‘O Allah, make Sa’d well! O Allah, make Sa’d well! Make Sa’d well!”‘ (Muslim)
