On Headaches

Muhammad b. Isma’il narrated from Muhammad b. Khalid from Ya’qub al-Zayyat from Mu’awiya from ‘Ammar al-Duhni, who said: I complained to Abu ‘Abd Allah, peace be upon him, of that [headache] and he said: ‘When you complete your obligatory prayer, place your right index finger on your eyes and say seven times while passing your finger over your right eyebrow (al-hajib): “O Compassionate, heal me.” Then pass it seven times over your left eyebrow and say: “O Bountiful, heal me.” Then place your right palm (al-raha) on your head and say: “O He in Whose trust is what is in the heavens and what is in the earth, bless Muhammad and his family and calm what is in me.” Then rise for the supererogatory prayer.’
