Hadith on Supplication: Send mercy upon this pain that it might pass

January 28, 2018

Abu Darda reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “Whoever among you is afflicted with something, or his brother is afflicted, then let him say: Our Lord is Allah, who is in the heavens. Holy is your name, your command is in the heavens and on the earth. As your mercy is in the heavens, place your mercy upon the earth. Forgive our mistakes and our sins. You are the Lord of all who are good. Send down mercy from your mercy, healing from your healing, upon this pain that it might pass.

عَنْ أَبِي الدَّرْدَاءِ قَالَ قَالَ قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ مَنْ اشْتَكَى مِنْكُمْ شَيْئًا أَوْ اشْتَكَاهُ أَخٌ لَهُ فَلْيَقُلْ رَبَّنَا اللَّهُ الَّذِي فِي السَّمَاءِ تَقَدَّسَ اسْمُكَ أَمْرُكَ فِي السَّمَاءِ وَالْأَرْضِ كَمَا رَحْمَتُكَ فِي السَّمَاءِ فَاجْعَلْ رَحْمَتَكَ فِي الْأَرْضِ اغْفِرْ لَنَا حُوبَنَا وَخَطَايَانَا أَنْتَ رَبُّ الطَّيِّبِينَ أَنْزِلْ رَحْمَةً مِنْ رَحْمَتِكَ وَشِفَاءً مِنْ شِفَائِكَ عَلَى هَذَا الْوَجَعِ فَيَبْرَأَ
