Cure for an AilmentĀ 

Every ailment needs a cure. You only have to ask the person afflicted with it to find out how dreadful life is for the sufferer. In times of sickness I used to repeat certain Adiyah (invocations, or act of supplications to God).

One of them was the dua (invocation) of Prophet Ayub (he is called Job in the Bible) mentioned in the Quran.

He suffered from a painful disease (the nature of which is not disclosed by the Quran). Historic reports say he had a skin disease. His family and friends, except his wife, left him unattended.

Despite the hardships he remained patient, and grateful to God. Ultimately God cured him.

His dua is mentioned in the Quran, in Surah (Chapter) 21 Al Anbiya, Ayat (Verse) 83.


And (remember) Ayub (Job) when he called his Lord saying, “here I am afflicted by pain, and you are the Most Merciful of all the merciful”.

And God tells us in Chapter 40, Surah Ghafir, Ayat 60.

Translation of the Ayat:

And your Lord says, “Call on me I will answer your prayer”.

Praying to God for help works too.

Note: Although I wrote the above in response to the daily prompt “The Placebo Effect”, but God’s Mercy is real, and is not a placebo effect. From 2003 –2012,  I suffered, but recovered through God’s Mercy on me. I used to say the above Ayat of Al Anbiya on myself plus having treatment.

Placebo Effect

If you could create a painless, inexpensive cure for a single ailment, what would you cure and why?
