Duah in Islam is a wonderful gift granted to Muslims to appeal directly to our Creator. Duah provides the framework within which dependent Man appeal to his Omnipotent Lord. The more man raises  his hands in supplication , the more he realizes his utter dependency and Reality of his Creator. Milestones like birthdays and anniversaries are also occasions to reflect upon the endless Mercies of our Creator, along with the balance sheet of our good and not-so-good deeds. Duah thus also serves as a powerful bridgehead between our natural and supernatural worlds.

It is good to recite a RUQ'YAH for the sick or affected person. RUQ'YAH means to recite certain words with the niy'yah that, through the power and strength of Allah, it protects the person against sickness and evil. The following is a RUO'YAH that the angel Jibreel made for our prophet Muhammad (SAW) :

Bis mil laa hi ar qee ka min kul la shay in yu' thee ka, min shar ri kul li naf sin au ’ay nin haa sid, al laa hu yash feek

In the name of Allah, I am making the Ruq'yah for you, to protect you against everything causing harm to you, against every evil spirit or jealous eye, may Allah heal and cure you

When a person feels a pain, he places his hand on the spot/place of the pain, recite three times BIS'MIL'LAAH, and recites after it the following:

A oo thu bi 'iz za til laa hi wa qud ra ti hee min shar ri maa a ji du wa u ghaa thir

I seek refuge and protection in Allah through His infinite power from the evil of the pain I feel and which I fear.

It is Sunnah to visit the sick, to give them hope and to advise them to have patience. It also Sunnah not to prolong the visit, unless requested by the sick person and it is also Sunnah to pray for the sick, place the right hand on his head and recite the following:

Al laa hum ma rab ban naas, ath hi bil ba's, ish fi an tash shaa fe e, laa shi faa a il laa shi faa u ka, shi faa an laa yu hgaa di ru sa 'qa maa



O Allah! Lord of men, I beseech Thee to remove all sickness, I beg Thee to heal this person for Thou art the only Healer. There is no cure/healing but that of Thee, let there be a restoration of health that will leave no sickness behind
