Praise be to Allaah.
The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) has taught us things in such cases in which there is healing and a lessening of sickness, as well as reward.
That is part of Allaah’s mercy towards this blessed ummah and the Prophet’s care for it. He is the one whom Allaah described as (interpretation of the meaning):
“Verily, there has come unto you a Messenger (Muhammad (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him)) from amongst yourselves.
It grieves him that you should receive any injury or difficulty. He (Muhammad (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him)) is anxious over you; for the believers (he is) full of pity, kind, and merciful”
Among the things that he taught us are the following:
It was narrated from Abu Sa’eed al-Khudri (may Allaah be pleased with him) that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) described Soorat al-Faatihah as a ruqyah, and he approved of the Sahaabi who recited it as a ruqyah for the one who had been stung by a scorpion. Al-Bukhaari (2156) and Muslim (2201).
Ibn al-Qayyim said:
There was a time when I fell sick in Makkah, and I could not find a doctor or any medicine, so I treated myself by reciting it.
I would take some Zamzam water and recite it over it several times, then drink it. I recovered fully by these means, then I began to do that whenever I felt a lot of pain, and I benefited greatly from it. End quote
