📖Sahih al-Bukhari 5743
Narrated `Aisha: The Prophet (ﷺ) used to treat some of his wives by passing his right hand over the place of ailment and used to say, “O Allah, the Lord of the people! Remove the trouble and heal the patient, for You are the Healer. No healing is of any avail but Yours; healing that will leave behind no ailment.”

  • This hadith, recorded in Sahih al-Bukhari, narrated by Aisha, the wife of Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him), describes how the Prophet used to treat his wives when they were ill. The Prophet would place his right hand on the area of pain or discomfort and make a supplication to Allah to heal the patient. The supplication used by the Prophet emphasizes the belief in Allah as the ultimate Healer, and that all healing comes from Him alone. It also implies that the healing granted by Allah is complete and does not leave behind any residual ailment. This hadith highlights the Prophet’s compassionate and caring nature towards his wives, and his reliance on Allah’s power and mercy in all aspects of his life. It also serves as an example for Muslims to follow in seeking healing through supplication to Allah and putting trust in His ability to cure all illnesses.
