Adhan And Iqama On The Shirt Of One Suffering From Fever

Muhammad b. Ja’far al-Bursi narrated from Muhammad b. Yahya al-Armani from Muhammad b. Sinan Abu ‘Abd Allah al-Sinan from Yunus b. Zabyan from al-Mufaddal b. ’Umar from Ja’far b. Muhammad al-Sadiq, peace be upon him, that one of his clients who was unwell called on him. He [al-Sadiq] said to him: “Why is it that I see your colour has changed?” He replied: “May I be your sacrifice, I have been feeling very unwell for a month. The fever has not subsided and I have treated myself with all the remedies prescribed by the learned, but have not benefited from any of that.” Al-Sadiq said to him: “Undo the buttons of your shirt and put your head in it.

Recite the adhan [the call to prayer) and the iqama [the introduction to prayer], and recite the sura al-Hamd (1) seven times.” The man said: I did that and recovered as quickly as a camel loosened from its cord.
