Prophetic supplications for healing

Prophetic supplications for healing



My wife is s doctor who is involved in treating emergency patients. Please recommend a specific dua for her to say before starting on any critical case.





Walaikum assalam wa rahmatullah,


Any of the Prophetic supplications related to healing are good. These include:


1. Saying Allahumma ’shfi [name of person]. (“O Allah, heal….”) [Related by Bukhari and Muslim]


2. Saying:


اللَّهُمَّ رَبَّ النَّاسِ مُذْهِبَ الْبَاسِ اشْفِ أَنْتَ الشَّافِي لَا شَافِيَ إِلَّا أَنْتَ شِفَاءً لَا يُغَادِرُ سَقَمًا


Allahumma Rabba n-nas mudhhiba l-bas

Ishfi, anta sh-shafi

La Shafia illa ant

Shifa’an la yughadiru saqama


“O Allah, lord of humanity and remover of harms,

Heal--for You are the healer,

There is no healer but you--

A healing that leaves no sickness.”


[Related by Bukhari, Tirmidhi, Abu Dawud, and others]


And Allah alone gives success.
