For A Swelling in the Body

Muhammad b. Ishaq al-Walid narrated from his cousin Ahmad b. Ibrahim b. al-Walid from ‘Ali b, Asbat from al-Hakam b. Sulayman from Maysar from Abu ‘Abd Allah al-Sadiq, peace be upon him, who said: “This verse is for every swelling m the body for which a man is afraid to resort to anything [else]. When you recite it, do so when you are in a state of purity. When you have performed the ablution for the obligatory prayer, seek protection with it [the verse] from your swelling before the prayer and meditate on it. The verse is:

If We had sent down this Qur an upon a mountain, thou wouidst have seen it humbled, split asunder out of the fear of God . . . until the end of the sura (59:21-4).

If you do that according to what has been mentioned to you, the swelling will subside.”
