Remedy for Fever

Whoever is afflicted by fever should recite the following seven times:

بِسْمِ اللّٰہِ الْکَبِیْرِ اَعُوْذُ بِاللّٰہِ الْعَظِیْمِ مِنْ شَرِّ عِرْقٍ نَّعَّارٍ وَّ مِنْ شَرِّ حَرِّ النَّارِ

If the ailing person cannot recite it himself, another person who is diligent in offering his prayers should recite it and blow on the patient or on some water, which should then be drunk by the patient. اِنْ شَــآءَالـلّٰـه The fever will dissipate. If the fever is not alleviated upon the first attempt, this should be repeated.[1]

Protection of the home

Whoever recites Āyat al-Kursī when retiring to sleep at night, Allah Almighty protects him, his home and the neighbouring homes.[2]

Relief from a mountain of debt

The fourth Caliph of Islām, Sayyidunā Alī b. Abī ālib رَضِىَ الـلّٰـهُ عَـنْهُ said to a person with debt, “Shall I not inform you of some words that the Messenger of Allah صَلَّى الـلّٰـهُ عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم taught me? Even if you have debt like the Mountain of Seer, Allah will pay it for you. Recite: اَللّٰھُمَّ اکْفِنِیْ بِحَلَالِکَ عَنْ حَرَامِکَ وَاَغْنِنِیْ بِفَضْلِکَ عَمَّنْ سِوَاکَ.”[3]

Fulfilment of all needs

The Messenger of Allah صَلَّى الـلّٰـهُ عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم said, “Whichever person recites Sūrah Yā Sīn at the start of the day, all his needs will be fulfilled.”[4]
