4 powerful Dua for pain relief in the body

Dua for pain relief English translation

English meaning: O One who has spread the earth over water, And has set the air in the sky, And has chosen the best of names for Himself, Bless Muhammad and the family of Muhammad, And do for me Such and such, and grant me provision and protection from such and such.

One might wonder how powerful a dua can be, my dear brothers and sisters. Dua for pain is a revelation from the Almighty on us for every situation a human being could be in (when a believer is distressed by illness and Allah, the glorious and most generous, cures him; thus, this period is like amends for his sins and warnings for future). Prophet Muhammad PBUH has mentioned in a hadith that dua can change destiny. Henceforth I have provided some proven dua’s that can relieve illness.

It should be emphasized that Muhammad’s teachings are the ultimate form of guidance, and the best Dua follow the Prophet’s (PBUH) Sunnah. The best possible words used by the Messenger of Allah since he is the speaker with the most excellent oratory skill and command of the Arabic language. Allah gave him the ability to convey the most profound ideas in only a few words, known as conciseness of speech.

Chapter 94 Surah Ash-Sharh

Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) was distressed at the time. Before becoming a prophet, he had never experienced the harsh and hurtful conditions that he suddenly encountered from his own people. The verses promise that there will be ease after difficulties and emphasize the importance of directing one’s grievances to Allah.

The repetition of the verse implies that this is a given. Tough times, emotional anguish, and pain do not last forever. Remembering this verse can bring hope and strength to anyone going through a difficult time. 

Just as the Prophet (PBUH) was guided and relieved of his anxieties and obstacles, one is given hope that difficulties such as depression and grief can be overcome. This chapter of the Quran provides heart peace and can heal a burdened soul.

Surah Ash-Sharh

أَلَمْ نَشْرَحْ لَكَ صَدْرَكَ ١ وَوَضَعْنَا عَنكَ وِزْرَكَ ٢ ٱلَّذِىٓ أَنقَضَ ظَهْرَكَ ٣ وَرَفَعْنَا لَكَ ذِكْرَكَ ٤ فَإِنَّ مَعَ ٱلْعُسْرِ يُسْرًا ٥ إِنَّ مَعَ ٱلْعُسْرِ يُسْرًۭا ٦ فَإِذَا فَرَغْتَ فَٱنصَبْ ٧ وَإِلَىٰ رَبِّكَ فَٱرْغَب ٨


Alam nashrah laka sadrak
Wa wada’na ‘anka wizrak
Allathee anqada dhahrak
Wa raf’na laka dhikrak
Fa inna ma’al ‘usr yusra
Inna ma’al ‘usr yusra
Fa idha faraghta fansab
Wa ila rabbika farghab

English meaning:

Did We not expand for you, [O Muhammad], your breast?
And We removed from you your burden
Which had weighed upon your back
And raised high for you your repute.
For indeed, with hardship [will be] ease.
Indeed, with hardship [will be] ease.
So when you have finished [your duties], then stand up [for worship].
And to your Lord direct your longing.

Dua for Sick

Muhadith Nuri (may Allah have mercy on him) narrated from Kafa’ami in his book “Baladul Ameen” that Imam Al-Mahdi (عَلَيْهِ ٱلسَّلَامُ) said:

“If someone inscribes this prayer onto a fresh plate using the soil of Imam Al-Hussein (عَلَيْهِ ٱلسَّلَامُ), then washes it off and consumes the water, they will find relief from their ailment.”

Etiquettes of making Dua

Should we prepare for dua?

You have to be genuine indeed; Allah will help those who do not lose hope. Remember that angels are listening to your call. Allah wants you to repent. He wants your sincere effort; it doesn’t matter how many times you slip and fall, so never despair of his mercy and forgiveness. Allah beautifully plans your life. Keep turning each page with faith and prayer. 

  • 1- Perform wudu.
  • 2- Face the Qiblah.
  • 3- Raise your hands.
  • 4: Call upon Allah in a low voice.

My way to make Dua

  • 1- Begin with praising and blessing Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) and his Household.
  • 2- Invoke Allah by His Names.
  • 3- Ask for everything you need.
  • 4- Make dua for others.
  • 5- Conclude with Amin.
  • We should be patient while waiting for an answer from Allah.

Often your utterances and expressions of your face leak out the secrets of your hidden thoughts.

Imam Ali (عَلَيْهِ ٱلسَّلَامُ)


In addition to ourselves, we should offer prayers for our parents, siblings, spouses, kids, other family members, friends, teachers, and other good Samaritans, as well as poor and oppressed Muslims worldwide. We should pray for their benefit in this life and the hereafter.

“In the absence of his brother (in Islam), a Muslim’s dua is readily accepted,” says the Prophet. He has an angel assigned to his side. Every time he prays for his sibling, the assigned angel responds with “Aameen.” And may you also have the same blessings.” (Muslim: Sahih)

A believer’s most potent weapon is dua. Dua can change fate in ways that no human act can. It is at the heart of ibadah, or worship. We can always succeed with it and excel with it. In the proper order of things, dua should be the believer’s first and last remedy, with all of his plans and actions falling in between.

Dua is a communication channel with Allah, our Creator, Lord and Master, the All-Knowing, the All Mighty. This act is remarkable in and of itself. It is the most empowering, enlightening, and impactful discussion ever. We seek Him because we know that only He can relieve our suffering and resolve our issues.
