The aayaat/verses of healing in the Quraan


There are six verses in the Quran in which the word SHIFAA (healing or the verb to heal) is used. It is strongly recommended by some Ulema that these verses be recited for the sick along with the other Du'aas. These six verses are:

Wa yash fi su doo ra qau mim mu' mi neen
He heals the breasts of the believers
(At-Tauba - 9:14)

Yaa ay yu han naa su qod jaa at kum mau 'i tho tum mir rab bi kum  wa shi faa 'ul li maa fis su door
O Mankind! There has come to you a direction from your Lord and a healing for (the diseases) in your hearts.




Wa nu naz zi lu mi nal Qur aani maa hu wa shi faa uw wa rah ma tul lil mu mi neen
We send down (stage by stage) in the Ouran that which is a healing and a Mercy for those who believe
(Israel  17:82)

(An-Nahl  16:69)
