An Invocation for All Illnesses

Mohammad b. Isma’il narrated from Muhammad b. Khalid Abu ‘Abd Allah from Sa’dan b. Muslim from Sa’d al-Mawla, who said: Abu ‘Abd Allah, peace be upon him, dictated to us the invocation called ‘the comprehensive’.

[It is] “In the Name of Allah, the Merciful, the Compassionate. In the Name of Allah with Whose Name nothing in the earth or in the heavens causes harm. O Allah, I ask you by Your Pure, Chaste, Immaculate, Holy, Perfect, Preserving, Protective, and Blessed Name, by Which whoever asks, You grant him, and by Which whoever calls You, You answer him, to bless Muhammad and the family of Muhammad and to cure me of what I suffer in my hearing and my sight, my hand and my foot, my hair and my skin (al-bashari), and my belly. Surely You are Gracious to whomsoever You will, and You are Powerful over all things.”
