There is no healer, but with Thy healing Power one is healed and illness is removed. She further added: When Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) fell ill, and his illness took a serious turn I took hold of his hand to that I should do with it what he ward to do with that (i.e. I would rub his body with his sacred hand). But he withdrew his hand from my hand and then said: O Allah, pardon me and make me join the companionship on She said. I was gazing at him constantly whereas he had passed away.
