Notes:

We worked on this book in several formats, because there was not any English translation of this book free downloadable in word, html and pdf as we have been searching it since last year except some parts of it on some sites.

The method of our work was as following:

1- We took the software (android) of Mafatih from the version of Erfan.ir

2- We transfered all parts even page by page into html format by sending one by one of them by sharing on our email: http://alhassanain2014@gmail.com

3- Then, we pasted them into unformatted text, and started to recheck whether there is any error or not, so, we found out that Surah al-Rum has only 26 verses, and like other errors.

4- We saw that this version does has not any chapterizing, so, we chapterized it according to the original text of Persian and then Arabic Translation of it.

5- .....

 

Despite of all we have done, if you see any error, please inform us on our email mentioned above, we welcome it and will try to recorrect as soon as possible.

 

May Allah accept our endeavours in His path, Amen!

Good Luck

TAWEEZ AGAINST MOUTHACHE

Imam al-Sadiq(a.s.) is reported to have said: As for those who suffer from mouth ache, they may put their hands on the ached organ and say the following:

بِسْمِ اللّٰهِ الرَّحْمنِ الرَّحيمِ بِسْمِ اللّٰهِ الَّذى لايَضُرُّ مَعَ اسْمِهِ دآءٌ اَعُوذُ بِكَلِماتِ اللّٰهِ الَّتى لايَضُرُّ مَعَها شَيْئٌ قُدُّوسٌ قُدُّوسٌ قُدُّوسٌ اَسْئَلُكَ يا رَبِّ بِاسْمِكَ الطّاهِرِ الْمُقَدَّسِ الْمبارَكِ الَّذى مَنْ سَئَلَكَ بِهِ اَعْطَيْتَهُ وَ مَنْ دَعاكَ بِهِ اَجَبْتَهُ اَسْئَلُكَ يا اللّٰهُ يا اللّٰهُ يا اللّٰهُ اَنْ تُصَلِّىَ عَلى مُحَمَّدٍ النَّبِىِ وَ اَهْلِ بَيْتِهِ وَ اَنْ تُعافِيَنى مِمّا اَجِدُ فى فَمى وَ فى رَاْسى وَفى سَمْعى وَ فى بَصَرى وَ فى بَطْنى وَ فى ظَهْرى وَ فى يَدى وَ فى رِجْلى وَ فى جَوارِحى كُلِّها

TAWEEZ AGAINST TOOTHACHE

Imam al-Sadiq(a.s.) is reported to have said: As for those who suffer from toothache, they may put their hands on the ached organ and recite Surah al-Faatehah, Surah al-Tawheed, Surah al-Qadr, and the following holy verse:

وَ تَرىَ الْجِبالَ تَحْسَبُها جامِدَةً وَ هِىَ تَمُرُّ مَرَّ السَّحابِ صُنْعَ اللّٰهِ الَّذى اَتْقَنَ كُلَّ شَيْئٍ اِنَّهُ خَبيرٌ بِما تَفْعَلُونَ

Likewise, Imam Ali(a.s.) is reported to have said: You may rub the place of your prostration (in ritual prayers) with your hand, rub the ached tooth with it, and say the following:

بِسْمِ اللّٰهِ وَالشّافى اَللَّهُ وَ لا حَوْلَ وَلا قُوَّةَ اِلاّ بِاللّٰهِ الْعَلِىِّ الْعَظيمِ

ANOTHER SUPPLICATORY AMULET AGAINST TOOTHACHE

You may recite Surah al-Faatehah and Surah al-Tawheed. With each Surah, you may recite:

بسم اللّه الرّحمن الرّحيم

After Surah al-Tawheed, you may recite the following holy verses:

بِسْمِ اللّٰهِ الرَّحْمنِ الرَّحيمِ وَ لَهُ ما سَكَنَ فِى اللَّيْلِ وَالنَّهارِ وَ هُوَ السَّميعُ الْعَليمُ قُلْنا يا نارُ كُونى بَرْدَاً وَ سَلاماً عَلى اِبْرهيمَ وَ اَرادُوا بِهِ كَيْداً فَجَعَلْناهُمْ الاَخْسَرينَ نُودِىَ اَنْ بُورِكَ مَنْ فِى النّارِ وَ مَنْ حَوْلَها وَ سُبْحانَ اللّٰهِ رَبِّ الْعالَمينَ

You may then say the following supplicatory prayer:

اَللّهُمَّ يا كافِياً مِنْ كُلِّ شَيْئٍ وَ لا يَكْفى مِنْكَ شَيْئٌ اِكْفِ عَبْدَكَ وَابْنَ اَمَتِكَ مِنْ شَرِّ ما يَُخافُ وَ يَُحْذَرُ وَ مِنْ شَرِّ الْوَجَعِ الَّذى يَشْكُوهُ اِلَيْكَ

It is also reported that one who suffers from toothache may take a blade or a leaf of a date-palm tree, rub the ached place with it, and repeat the following statement seven times:

بِسْمِ اللّٰهِ الرَّحْمنِ الرَّحيمِ بِسْمِ اللّٰهِ وَ بِاللّٰهِ مُحَمَّدٌ رَسُولُ اللّٰهِ وَ اِبْرهيمُ خَليلُ اللّٰهِ اُسْكُنْ بِالَّذى سَكَنَ لَهُ ما فِى اللَّيْلِ وَ النَّهارِ بِاءِذْنِهِ وَ هُوَ عَلى كُلِّ شَيْئٍ قَديرٌ

It is also reported that one who suffers from toothache may put a stick or a piece of iron on the tooth and use this supplicatory amulet from the side of the tooth by repeating it seven times:

بِسْمِ اللّٰهِ الرَّحْمنِ الرَّحيمِ اَلْعَجَبُ كُلُّ الْعَجَبِ دُودَةٌ تَكُونُ فِى الْفَمِ تَاْكُلُ الْعَظْمَ وَ تُنْزِلُ الدَّمَ اَنَا الرّاقى وَ اللّٰهُ الشّافى وَ الْكافى لا اِلهَ اِلاّ اللّٰهُ وَالْحَمْدُلِلَّهِ رَبِّ الْعالَمينَ وَ اِذْ قَتَلْتُمْ نَفْسَاً فَادّارَ اْتُمْ فِيْهَا وَاللهُ مُخْرِجٌ مَا كُنْتُمْ تَكْتُمُوْنَ. فَقُلْنَا اضْرِبُوْهُ بِبَعْضِهَا كَذَالِكَ يُحْيِيْ اللهُ الْمَوْتَيٰ وَيُرِيْكُمْ آيَاتِهِ لَعَلَّكُمْ تَعْقِلُوْنَ.

The previous method may be repeated seven times.

TAWEEZ FOR CHEST PAINS

It is also reported that the previously mentioned verse (i.e. “and when you killed…”) may be recited by those who suffer from chest pains.

A tradition reads, “Seek healing from the Holy Qur’an, for Almighty Allah says, ‘O men! There has come to you indeed an admonition from your Lord and a healing for what is in the breasts. (10/57)’”

TAWEEZ FOR CURING OF COUGHING & AGAINST STOMACH PAINS

An all-inclusive supplicatory prayer is reported for curing of coughing. This lengthy supplicatory prayer, which is quoted from Bihar al-Anwar, Book of Supplicatory Prayers, begins with the following statement:

اللّهمّ انت رجائى و انت ثقتى‏ و عمادى ...

SUPPLICATORY AMULET AGAINST STOMACH PAINS

The Holy Prophet (s.a.w.a.) is reported to have advised those who suffer from colic to mix honey with hot water and recite Surah al-Faatehah seven times on the mixture so as to seek Almighty Allah’s protection against the pains.

As to Imam Ali(a.s.), he is reported to have directed those who suffer from stomach pains to drink hot water and say the following supplicatory prayer:

يا اَللَّهُ يا اَللَّهُ يا اَللَّهُ يا رَحْمنُ يا رَحيمُ يا رَبَّ الاَرْبابِ يا اِلهَ الاْلِهَةِ يا مَلِكَ الْمُلُوكِ يا سَيِّدَ السّادَةِ اشْفِنى بِشِفآئِكَ مِنْ كُلِّ دآءٍ وَ سُقْمٍ فَاِنّى عَبْدُكَ وَابْنُ عَبْدَيْكَ اَتَقَلَّبُ فى قَبْضَتِكَ

For a stomach pain or any other ailment, the sick is recommended to put his/her hand on the ailed place and repeat the following evil-repelling prayer:

اَعُوذُ بِعِزَّةِ اللّٰهِ وَ جَلالِهِ مِنْ شَرِّ ما اَجِدُ

The sick may then put his/her right hand on the ailed place and repeat the following three times:

بسم اللّه

TAWEEZ AGAINST COLITIS

For those who suffer from colitis, they are required to write Surah al-Faatehah, Surah al-Falaq, and Surah al-Nas on a paper or a sheet and then adds the following statement thereunder:

اَعُوذُ بِوَجْهِ اللّٰهِ الْعَظيمِ وَ بِعِزَّتِهِ الَّتى لا تُرامُ وَ بِقُدْرَتِهِ الَّتى لا يَمْتَنِعُ مِنْها شَيْئٌ مِنْ شَرِّ هذَا الْوَجَعِ وَ مِنْ شَرِّ ما فيهِ وَ مِنْ شَرِّ ما اَجِدُ مِنْهُ

Then, the sheet may be washed with rainwater and drunk (1) in the beginning of the day before eating anything and (2) before going to sleep. This is blessed and useful way.

It is narrated that a man complained to the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.a.) about colitis from which his brother had suffered. The Holy Prophet (s.a.w.a.) instructed, “Tell your brother to drink a mixture of honey and hot water.” The next day, the man returned to the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.a.) and informed that the prescription was not useful. The Holy Prophet (s.a.w.a.) commented, “Allah is truthful, but your brother’s colon is not. Go back, give him the same drink, and recite on it Surah al-Faatehah seven times as prayer for God’s protection.” When the man left, the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.a.) said to Imam Ali(a.s.), “The brother of this man is hypocrite; therefore, the drink was not effective with him.”

TAWEEZ AGAINST WARTS

To treat warts - small, benign, and hard excrescence on the skin or on the hand occasionally - for each wart, you may take seven barley seeds. Recite the verses 1-6 of Surah al-Waqiah (No. 56) seven times over each seed. Then, recite the following verse seven times over each seed, too:

وَ يَسْئَلُونَكَ عَنِ الْجِبالِ فَقُلْ يَنْسِفُها رَبّى نَسْفاً فَيَذَرُها قاعاً صَفْصَفاً لاتَرى فيها عِوَجاً وَلا اَمْتاً

You may then blow over it. Take one seed at a time and rub each seed on one wart. Then, put all of the seeds in a piece of cloth, tie up a rock on the piece of cloth, and throw it in a well.

This act is said to be advisably done in the waning of the moon.

A warty person is recommended to rub the warts with a piece of salt and recite three times the last four verses of Surah al-Hashr:

لو انزلنا هذا القران ...

The piece of salt may be then thrown in an oven and the warty person may pass over it hurriedly. Then, the warts will vanish, Allah willing.

The author of the book of al-Khaza’in has mentioned that warts may vanish when they are overlaid with the hair-removing powder.

TAWEEZ AGAINST ALL TUMORS

Recite the last four verses of Surah al-Hashr with ponderation while you are ceremonially pure after you have performed the ritual ablution (wudu’) before and after an obligatory prayer:

لو انزلنا هذا القران‏ على جبل ...

The swelling will then vanish, Allah willing.

TAWEEZ AGAINST DYSTOCIA

For women suffering from dystocia (i.e. difficult or abnormally painful childbirth), the following holy verses may be written on a parchment and tied to their right thigh. It must be untied after they give birth:

بِسْمِ اللّٰهِ الرَّحْمنِ الرَّحيمِ كَاَنَّهُمْ يَوْمَ يَرَوْنَ ما يُوعَدُونَ لَمْ يَلْبَثُوا اِلاّ ساعَةً مِنْ نَهارٍ كَاَنَّهُمْ يَوْمَ يَرَوْنَها لَمْ يَلْبَثُوا اِلاّ عَشِيَّةً اَوْ ضُحيها اِذْ قالَتِ اَمْرَاَتُ عِمْرانَ رَبِّ اِنّى نَذَرْتُ لَكَ ما فى بَطْنى مُحَرَّراً فَتَقَبَّلْ مِنّى اِنَّكَ اَنْتَ السَّميعُ الْعَليمُ

It is also reported that the following holy verse should be recited over women suffering from dystocia:

فَاَجائَهَا الْمَخاضُ اِلى جِذْعِ النَّخْلَةِ تا رُطَباً جَنِيّاً

The reciter should then raise the voice with the following holy verse and the statement following it:

وَاللّٰهُ اَخْرَجَكُمْ مِنْ بُطُونِ اُمَّهاتِكُمْ لاتَعْلَمُونَ شَيْئاً وَ جَعَلَ لَكُمُ السَّمْعَ وَ الاَبْصارَ وَ الاَفْئِدَةَ لَعَلَّكُمْ تَشْكُرُونَ كَذلِكَ اُخْرُجْ اَيُّها الطِّلْقُ اُخْرُجْ بِاذْنِ اللّٰهِ

For easy childbirth, Imam al-Sadiq(a.s.) is reported to have advised of writing the following supplicatory prayer on a sheet of paper or a parchment:

اَللّهُمَّ فارِجَ الْهَمِّ وَ كاشِفَ الْغَمِّ وَ رَحْمنَ الدُّنْيا وَالاْخِرَةِ وَ رَحيمَهُما اِرْحَمْ

You may now mention the woman’s name and her mother’s:

رَحْمَةً تُغْنيها بِها عَنْ رَحْمَةِ جَميعِ خَلْقِكَ تُفَرِّجُ بِها كُرْبَتَها وَ تَكْشِفُ بِها غَمَّها وَ تُيَسِّرُ بِها وِلادَتَها وَ قُضِىَ بَيْنَهُمْ بِالْحَقِّ وَ هُمْ لايُظْلَمُونَ وَ قيلَ الْحَمْدُلِلَّهِ رَبِّ الْعالَمينَ

TAWEEZ AGAINST BEWITCHERY

The following holy verses and statement may be written on a paper, which may be then hanged to the bewitched person (usually a man bewitched by a woman so as to make him marry her):

وَ مِنْ آياتِهِ اَنْ جَعَلَ لَكُمْ مِنْ اَنْفُسِكُمْ اَزْواجاً لِتَسْكُنُوا اِلَيْها وَ جَعَلَ بَيْنَكُمْ مَوَدَّةً وَ رَحْمَةً اِنَّ فى ذلِكَ لاَياتٍ لِقَوْمٍ يَتَفَكَّروُنَ ثُمَّ ادْخُلُوا عَلَيْهِمُ الْبابَ فَاِذا دَخَلْتُمُوهُ فَاِنَّكُمْ غالِبُونَ فَفَتَحْنا اَبْوابَ السَّمآءِ بِمآءٍ مُنْهَمِرٍ وَ فَجَّرْنَا الاَرْضَ عُيُوناً فَالْتَقَى الْمآءُ عَلى اَمْرٍ قَدْ قُدِرَ رَبِّ اشْرَحْ لى صَدْرى وَ يَسِّرْلى اَمْرى وَ احْلُلْ عُقْدَةً مِنْ لِسانى يَفْقَهُوا قَوْلى وَ تَرَكْنا بَعْضَهُمْ يَوْمَئِذٍ يَمُوجُ فى بَعْضٍ وَ نُفِخَ فِى الصُّورِ فَجَمَعْناهُمْ جَمْعاً كذلك حَلَلْتُ فُلانَ بْنِ فُلانٍ عَنْ بِنْتِ فُلانَةٍ لَقَدْ جائَكُمْ رَسُولٌ مِنْ اَنْفُسِكُمْ عَزيزٌ عَلَيْهِ ما عَنِتُّمْ حَريصٌ عَلَيْكُمْ بِالْمُؤْمِنينَ رَؤُفٌ رَحيمٌ فَاِنْ تَوَلَّوْا فَقُلْ حَسْبِىَ اللّٰهُ لا اِلهَ اِلاّ هُوَ عَلَيْهِ تَوَكَّلْتُ وَ هُوَ رَبُّ الْعَرْشِ الْعَظيمِ

TAWEEZ AGAINST FEVER

(1) It is recommended to say this supplicatory amulet, which the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.a.) taught to Imam Ali(a.s.) against fever:

اَللّهُمَّ ارْحَمْ جِلْدِىَ الرَّقيقَ وَ عَظْمِىَ الدَّقيقَ وَ اَعُوذُ بِكَ مِنْ فَوْرَةِ الْحَريقِ يا اُمَّ مِلْدَمٍ اِنْ كُنْتِ آمَنْتِ بِاللّٰهِ فَلا تَاْكُلىِ اللَّحْمَ وَلاتَشْرَبىِ الدَّمَ وَلاتَفُورى مِنَ الْفَمِ وَانْتَقِلى اِلى مَنْ يَزعَمُ اَنَّ مَعَ اللّٰهِ اِلهاً آخَرَ فَاِنّى اَشْهَدُ اَنْ لا اِلهَ اِلا اللّٰهُ وَحْدَهُ لاشَريكَ لَهُ وَاَشْهَدُ اَنَّ مُحَمَّداً عَبْدُهُ وَ رَسُولُهُ

(2) A feverish person is recommended to say repeatedly in mornings and evenings the supplicatory prayer known as Dua al-nur - a supplicatory prayer that Lady Fatimah al-Zahra’(a.s.) taught to Salman. This supplicatory prayer can be found in Mafatih al-Jinan.

(3) The Holy Imams (a.s.) are reported to have used to treated themselves against fever with cold water. Successively, they used to wet their clothes by putting one on and leaving the other in water. When the dressed one dried out, they would put on the other wet one.

(4) Handwritten by Imam al-Rida(a.s.), a feverish person may write the following inscriptions on three sheets of paper as follows:

On the first sheet, the following may be written down:

بِسْمِ اللّٰهِ الرَّحْمنِ الرَّحيمِ لاتَخَفْ اِنَّكَ اَنْتَ الاَعْلى

On the second sheet, the following may be written down:

بِسْمِ اللّٰهِ الرَّحْمنِ الرَّحيمِ لاتَخَفْ نَجْوَتَ مِنَ الْقَوْمِ الظّالِمينَ

On the third sheet, the following may be written down:

بِسْمِ اللّٰهِ الرَّحْمنِ الرَّحيمِ اَلا لَهُ الْخَلْقُ وَ الاَمْرُ تَبارَكَ اللّٰهُ رَبُّ الْعالَمينَ

On each of these sheets, Surah al-Tawheed may be recited three times. After that, the feverish person may swallow the sheets in three days; each one on a day. If this is practiced, the fever will be healed, Allah willing.

(5) The feverish person my untie the buttons of his shirt, hang his head down to his chest, say the adhan and the iqamah statements, and recite Surah al-Faatehah seven times. If this is practiced, the fever will be healed, Allah willing.

(6) The Holy Imams (a.s.) are reported to have instructed that the following supplicatory prayer should be written on a parchment and hanged to the feverish person:

اَللّهُمَّ اِنّى اَسْئَلُكَ بِعِزَّتِكَ وَ قُدْرَتِكَ وَ سُلْطانِكَ وَ ما اَحاطَ بِهِ عِلْمُكَ اَنْ تُصَلِّىَ عَلى مُحَمَّدٍ وَ آلِ مُحَمَّدٍ وَ اَنْ لا تُسَلِّطَ عَلى فُلانِ بْنِ فُلانٍ شَيْئاً مِمّا خَلَقْتَ بِسُوَّءٍ وَارْحَمْ جِلْدَهُ الرَّقيقَ وَ عَظْمَهُ الدَّقيقَ مِنْ فَوْرَةِ الْحَريقِ اُخْرُجى يا اُمَّ مِلْدَمٍ يا آكِلَةَ اللَّحْمِ وَ شارِبَةَ الدَّمِ حَرُّها و بَرَدُها مِنْ جَهَنَّمَ اِنْ كُنْتِ آمَنْتِ بِاللّٰهِ الاَعْظَمِ اَنْ لاتَاْكُلى لِفُلانِ بنِ فُلانة لَحْماً وَ لاتُمَصّى لَهُ دَماً وَلاتَنْهَكى لَهُ عَظْماً وَلاتُثَوِّرى عَلَيْهِ غَمّاً وَ لاتُهَيِّجى عَلَيْهِ صُداعاً وَانْتَقِلى عَنْ شَعْرِهِ وَ بَشَرِهِ وَ لَحْمِهِ وَ دَمِهِ اِلى مَنْ زَعَمَ اَنَّ مَعَ اللّٰهِ اِلهاً آخَرَ لا اِلهَ اِلاّ هُوَ سُبْحانَهُ وَ تَعالى عَمّا يُشْرِكُونَ

Then, it is recommended to write down the name of a non-Muslim or an enemy of Almighty Allah.

(7) On the right arm of the feverish person, it is advised to hang a sheet of paper (or the like) on which the following inscription has been written down:

بِسْمِ اللَّـهِ الرَّحْمَـٰنِ الرَّحِيمِ الْحَمْدُ لِلَّـهِ رَبِّ الْعَالَمِينَ الرَّحْمَـٰنِ الرَّحِيمِمَالِكِ يَوْمِ الدِّينِاِيَّاكَ نَعْبُدُ وَاِيَّاكَ نَسْتَعِينُاهْدِنَا الصِّرَاطَ الْمُسْتَقِيمَصِرَاطَ الَّذِينَ اَنْعَمْتَ عَلَيْهِمْ غَيْرِ الْمَغْضُوبِ عَلَيْهِمْ وَلَا الضَّالِّينَ بِسْمِ الِلَّهِ وَ بِالِلَّهِ اَعُوذُ بِكَلِماتِ اللّٰهِ التّآمّاتِ كُلِّهَا الَّتى لايُجاوِزُهُنَّ بَرُّ وَلا فاجِرٌ مِنْ شَرِّ ما خَلَقَ وَ ذَرَءَ وَ بَرَءَ وَ مِنْ شَرِّ الْهآمَّةِ وَ السّآمَّةِ وَالْعآمَّةِ وَاللاَّّمَّةِ وَ مِنْ شَرِّ طَوارِقِ اللَّيْلِ وَ النَّهارِ وَ مِنْ شَرِّ فُسّاقِ الْعَرَبِ وَالْعَجَمِ وَ مِنْ شَرِّ فَسَقَةِ الْجِنِّ وَالاِنْسِ وَ مِنْ شَرِّ الشَّيْطانِ وَ شَرَكِهِ وَ مِنْ شَرِّ كُلّ ذى شَرٍّ وَ مِنْ شَرٍّ كُلِّ دآبَّةٍ هُوَ آخِذٌ بِناصِيَتِها اِنَّ رَبّى عَلى صِراطٍ مُسْتَقيمٍ رَبَّنا عَلَيْكَ تَوَكَّلْنا وَ اِلَيْكَ اَنَبْنا وَ اِلَيْكَ الْمَصيرُ يا نارُ كُونى بَرْداً وَ سَلاماً عَلى اِبْرهيمَ وَ اَرادُوا بِهِ كَيْداً فَجَعَلْناهُمْ الاَخْسَرينَ بَرْداً وَ سَلاماً عَلى فُلانِ بْنِ فُلانةَ رَبَّنا لاتُؤ اخِذْنا اِنْ نَسينا اَوْ اَخْطَاْنا رَبَّنَا وَلَا تَحْمِلْ عَلَيْنَا اِصْرًا كَمَا حَمَلْتَهُ عَلَى الَّذِينَ مِن قَبْلِنَا رَبَّنَا وَلَا تُحَمِّلْنَا مَا لَا طَاقَةَ لَنَا بِهِ وَاعْفُ عَنَّا وَاغْفِرْ لَنَا وَارْحَمْنَااَنتَ مَوْلَانَا فَانصُرْنَا عَلَى الْقَوْمِ الْكَافِرِينَ حَسْبِىَ اللّٰهُ لا اِلهَ اِلاّ هُوَ فَاتَّخِذْهُ وَكيلاً وَ تَوَكَّلْ عَلَى الْحَىِّ الَّذى لايَمُوتُ وَ سَبِّحْ بِحَمْدِهِ وَ كَفى بِهِ بِذُنُوبِ عِبادِهِ خَبيراً بَصيراً لا اِلهَ اِلاّ اللّٰهُ وَحْدَهُ لا شَريكَ لَهُ صَدَقَ وَعْدَهُ وَ نَصَرَ عَبْدَهُ وَ هَزَمَ الاَحْزابَ وَحْدَهُ ماشآءَ اللّٰهُ لاقُوَّةَ اِلاّ بِاللّٰهِ كَتَبَ اللّٰهُ لاََغْلِبَنَّ اَنَا وَ رُسُلى اِنَّ اللّٰهَ قَوِىُّ عَزيزٌ اِنَّ حِزْبَ اللّٰهِ هُمُ الْغالِبُونَ وَ مَنْ يَعْتَصِمْ بِاللّٰهِ فَقَدْ هُدِىَ اِلى صِراطٍ مُسْتَقيمٍ وَ صَلَّى اللّٰهُ عَلى مُحَمَّدٍ وَ آلِهِ الطَّيِّبينَ الطّاهِرينَ

(8) On three pieces of sugar, the following three phrases may be written down and the feverish person may eat them in the mornings of three days as the first meal, each piece a day:

The inscription on the first piece of sugar is this:

عَقَدْتُ بِاِذْنِ اللّٰهِ

The inscription on the second piece of sugar is this:

شَدَدْتُ بِاِذْنِ اللّٰهِ

The inscription on the third piece of sugar is this:

سَكَنْتُ بِاِذْنِ اللّٰهِ

A SUPPLICATORY PRAYER AGAINST TENESMUS

It is reported that a man complained to Imam Musa al-Kazim (a.s.) about suffering from continuous tenesmus (i.e. a frequent, excessive, and painful desire to defecate). As treatment, the Imam (a.s.) taught the man to say the following supplicatory prayer after the Night Prayer:

اَللّهُمَّ ما كانَ مِنْ خَيْرٍ فَمِنْكَ لاحَمْدَلى فيهِ وَ ما عَمِلْتُ مِنْ سُوءٍ فَقَدْ حَذَّرْتَنيهِ لاعُذْرَ لى فيهِ اَللّهُمَّ اِنّى اَعُوذُبِكَ اَنْ اَتَّكِلَ عَلى مالا حَمْدَلى فيهِ اَوْ آمَنَ مِمّا لا عُذْرَ لى فيهِ

A SUPPLICATORY PRAYER AGAINST STOMACH GURGLING

Imam Musa al-Kazim (a.s.) is also reported to have advised the same previous supplicatory prayer to be said after the Night Prayer by those who suffer from stomach gurgling. [A man said to him, “I suffer from stomach gurgling that never stops. Therefore, I feel embarrassed when people to whom I speak hear the sounds of such gurgling. So, please pray Allah to cure me of it.]

Imam al-Sadiq(a.s.), advising those who suffer from stomach gurgling, said, “Black cumin may be mixed with honey and then eaten.”

A SUPPLICATORY PRAYER AGAINST LEPROSY

Yunus has reported that whitish scales between the eyes affected him. He therefore complained about this disease to Imam al-Sadiq(a.s.) who, leading him to a treatment, said: You may pure yourself ceremonially, offer a two-unit prayer, and say this (supplicatory prayer):

يا اَللَّهُ يا رَحْمنُ يا رَحيمُ يا سَميعَ الدَّعَواتِ يا مُعْطِىَ الْخَيْراتِ اَعْطِنى خَيْرَ الدُّنْيا وَ خَيْرَ الاْخِرَةِ وَ قِنى شَرَّ الدُّنْيا وَ شَرَّ الاْخِرَةِ وَ اَذْهِبْ عَنّى ما اَجِدُ فَقَدْ غاضَنىِ الاَمْرُ وَاَحْزَنَنى

Reporting the same narration, the author of ‘Uddat al-DAIhas reported Imam al-Sadiq(a.s.) as saying:

In the beginning of the last third of night, you may perform the ritual ablution (wudu’) and offer the prayer you usually offer at this time. In the second prostration of the first two units of the prayer, you may say the following (supplicatory prayer) while you are in a state of prostration:

يا عَلَىُّ يا عَظيمُ يا رَحْمنُ يا رَحيمُ يا سامِعَ الدَّعَواتِ يا مُعْطِىَ الْخَيْراتِ صَلِّ عَلى مُحَمَّدٍ وَ آلِ مُحَمَّدٍ وَاَعْطِنى مِنْ خَيْرِ الدُّنْيا وَالاْخِرَةِ ما اَنْتَ اَهْلُهُ وَاصْرِفْ عَنّى مِنْ شَرِّ الدُّنْيا وَالاْخِرَةِ ما اَنْتَ اَهْلُهُ وَاَذْهِبْ عَنّى هذَا الْوَجَعَ فَاِنَّهُ قَدْ غاظَنى وَاَحْزَنَنى

You may pray Almighty Allah so persistently.

Yunus added, “Before I returned to al-Kufah, Almighty Allah has removed from me all the traces of that disease.”

For this disease as well as hemorrhoids, it is reported to write down Surah Yasin with honey in a cup that must be then washed and drunk.

It is also reported to have the soil of Imam al-Husayn’s tomb after being kneaded with rainwater.

TAWEEZ AGAINST MANGE, FURUNCLE & HERPES

It is also reported to overlay the ailed organ with henna and hair-removing powder for those suffering from mange, furuncle, and herpes. For the same diseases, it is reported to recite, write down, and hang on the diseased person the following holy verses and supplicatory statement:

بِسْمِ اللّٰهِ الرَّحْمنِ الرَّحيمِ وَ مَثَلُ كَلِمَةٍ خَبيثَةٍ كَشَجَرَةٍ خَبيثَةٍ اجْتُثَّتْ مِنْ فَوْقِ الاَرْضِ ما لَها مِنْ قَرارٍ مِنْها خَلَقْناكُمْ وَ فيها نُعيدُكُمْ وَ مِنْها نُخْرِجُكُمْ تارَةً اُخْرى اَللَّهُ اَكْبَرُ وَ اَنْتَ لاتُكَبَّرُ اَللَّهُ يَبْقى وَ اَنْتَ لاتَبْقى وَاللّٰهُ عَلى كُلِّ شَيْئٍ قَديرٌ

TAWEEZ AGAINST PRIVATE PARTS PAINS

One of the companions of the Holy Imams (a.s.) is reported to have uncovered his private parts in a situation where it is improper to uncover one’s private parts; he was therefore affected by an ailment at that place. When he complained about this to Imam al-Sadiq(a.s.), he was taught to do this supplicatory amulet:

Put your left hand on the ailed part and repeat the following supplicatory prayer three times. If you do, you will be restored to health, Allah willing:

بِسْمِ اللّٰهِ وَ بِاللّٰهِ بَلى مَنْ اَسْلَمَ وَجْهَهُ لِلَّهِ وَ هُوْ مُحْسِنٌ فَلَهُ اَجْرُهُ عِنْدَ رَبِّهِ وَلا خَوْفٌ عَلَيْهِمْ وَلاهُمْ يَحْزَنُونَ اَللّهُمَّ اِنّى اَسْلَمْتُ وَجْهى اِلَيْكَ وَفَوَّضْتُ اَمْرى اِلَيْكَ لا مَلْجَاءَ وَ لامَنْجا مِنْكَ اِلاّ اِلَيْكَ

TAWEEZ AGAINST KNEE PAINS

Quoted from the book of Yibb al-A’immah (Medicine of the Imams), Jabir al-Ju’fi reported Imam Muhammad al-Baqir (a.s.) as saying:

I was present with al-Husayn ibn Ali(a.s.) when a man from the descendants of Umayyah, yet he was loyalist to us, came to him and said, “O son of Allah’s Messenger, I could hardly come to you walking because of a pain from which I am suffering in my leg.”

The Imam (a.s.) asked, “How are you turned back from the supplicatory amulet of al-Hasan ibn Ali(a.s.)?”

“What is that, son of Allah’s Messenger?” asked the man.

The Imam (a.s.) explained, “You may recite the first seven verses of Surah al-Fath.”

Afterwards, the man said, “As I had carried out this direction, I felt no pain at all.”

It is also reported that one who suffers from knee pains may say the following supplicatory prayer after the ritual prayers:

يا اَجْوَدَ مَنْ اَعْطى يا خَيْرَ مَنْ سُئِلَ وَ يا اَرْحَمَ مَنِ اسْتُرْحِمَ اِرْحَمْ ضَعْفى وَ قِلَّةَ حيلَتى وَ اَعْفِنى مِنْ وَجَعى

For those suffering from pains in the legs, it is reportedly recommended to recite the following holy verse seven times over the legs:

وَاتْلُ ما اُوحِىَ اِلَيْكَ مِنْ كِتابِ رَبِّكَ لا مُبَدِّلَ لِكَلِماتِهِ وَ لَنْ تَجِدَ مِنْ دُونِهِ مُلْتَحَداً

TAWEEZ AGAINST EYE ACHES

For those suffering from eye aches, many traditions have recommended saying the following supplicatory prayer after the ritual obligatory prayers of dawn (subh) and sunset (maghrib):

اَللّهُمَّ اِنّى اَسْئَلُكَ بِحَقِّ مُحَمَّدٍ وَ آلِ مُحَمَّدٍ عَلَيْكَ اَنْ تُصَلِىَّ عَلى مُحَمَّدٍ وَ آلِ مُحَمَّدٍ وَ اَنْ تَجْعَلَ النُّورَ فى بَصَرى وَالْبَصيرَةَ فى دينى وَ الْيَقينَ فى قَلْبى وَالاِخْلاصَ فى عَمَلى وَ السَّلامَةَ فى نَفْسى وَ السَّعَةَ فى رِزْقى وَ الشُّكْرَ لَكَ اَبَداً ما اَبْقَيْتَنى

Al-Bizanti reported Yunus ibn ²abyan to have said: One day, we visited Imam al-Sadiq(a.s.) and found him tensely sore-eyed; therefore, we were depressed. The next morning, we visited him while he was completely healed. Surprised by this, we asked him, “May Allah accept us as ransoms for you! Have you treated your eyes with a certain medicine?” The Imam answered, “Yes, I have. I have treated them with the best of all medicines.” “What is that?” we asked. The Imam (a.s.) answered, “It is a supplicatory amulet.” We therefore wrote down that supplicatory amulet, which is as follows:

اَعُوذُ بِعِزَّةِ اللّٰهِ وَ اَعُوذُ بِقُوَّةِ اللّٰهِ وَ اَعُوذُ بِقُدْرَةِ اللّٰهِ وَ اَعُوذُ بِنُورِ اللّٰهِ وَ اَعُوذُ بِعَظَمَةِ اللّٰهِ وَ اَعُوذُ بِجَلالِ اللّٰهِ وَ اَعُوذُ بِجَمالِ اللّٰهِ وَ اَعُوذُ بِبَهآءِ اللّٰهِ وَ اَعُوذُ بِجَمْعِ اللّٰهِ بِكُلِّ اللّٰهِ وَ اَعُوذُ بِعَفْوِ اللّٰهِ وَ اَعُوذُ بِغُفْرانِ اللّٰهِ وَ اَعُوذُ بِرَسُولِ اللّٰهِ وَ اَعُوذُ بِالاَئِمَّةِ عَلى ما تَشآءُ مِنْ شَرِّ ما اَجِدُ اَللّهُمَّ رَبَّ الْمُطيعينَ

When we asked the Imam (a.s.) about the meaning of jam’allah, he said, “It means the wholeness of Allah.”

It is also reported that one who suffers from eye pains may recite Ayah al-Kursi and believe in his inner self that the reciting of this holy verse will cure him of that pain.

Before reciting this holy verse, one suffering from eye pains is advised to put his hand on his eye and say the following:

اُعيذُ نُورَ بَصَرى بِنُورِاللّٰهِ الَّذى لايُطْفَاءُ

This will be useful.

A SUPPLICATORY AMULET AGAINST NYCTALOPIA

For those who suffer from nyctalopia (i.e. reduction or loss of vision in dim light), they are recommended to write down Ayah al-Nur several times (on a sheet of paper) in a cup, wash it, put it in a flask, and use it as eye ointment.

Ayah al-Nur is the following:

اللَّـهُ نُورُ السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالْاَرْضِ مَثَلُ نُورِهِ كَمِشْكَاةٍ فِيهَا مِصْبَاحٌ الْمِصْبَاحُ فِي زُجَاجَةٍ الزُّجَاجَةُ كَاَنَّهَا كَوْكَبٌ دُرِّيٌّ يُوقَدُ مِن شَجَرَةٍ مُّبَارَكَةٍ زَيْتُونَةٍ لَّا شَرْقِيَّةٍ وَلَا غَرْبِيَّةٍ يَكَادُ زَيْتُهَا يُضِيءُ وَلَوْ لَمْ تَمْسَسْهُ نَارٌ نُّورٌ عَلَىٰ نُورٍيَهْدِي اللَّـهُ لِنُورِهِ مَن يَشَاءُ وَيَضْرِبُ اللَّـهُ الْاَمْثَالَ لِلنَّاسِوَاللَّـهُ بِكُلِّ شَيْءٍ عَلِيمٌ

It is also reported that whoever recites the Holy Qur’an from copies of the Holy Qur’an, will enjoy strong sight.

It is also reported that whoever repeats the following holy verse every day, his eyes will be saved from all optical troubles:

فَجَعَلْناهُ سَميعاً بَصيراً

Al-Kaf’ami says: According to experiments, to seek the advocacy of Imam Musa al-Kazim (a.s.) is useful for cure of eye pains as well as the troubles of the other organs.

SUFFERING FROM NOSEBLEED

For those suffering from nosebleed, it is recommended to pour cold water on their heads and foreheads.

TAWEEZ FOR NEUTRALIZING SORCERY

Imam Ali(a.s.) is reported to have advised those who intend to neutralize the spell that is cast upon them to write down the following statements on a parchment made of an antelope’s skin and then hang it on the body:

بِسْمِ اللّٰهِ وَ بِاللّٰهِ بِسْمِ اللّٰهِ وَ ماشآءَ اللّٰهُ بِسْمِ اللّٰهِ وَ لاحَوْلَ وَلاقُوَّةَ اِلاّ بِاللّٰهِ قالَ مُوسى ما جِئْتُمْ بِهِ السِّحْرُ اِنَّ اللّٰهَ سَيُبْطِلُهُ اِنَّ اللّٰهَ لايُصْلِحُ عَمَلَ الْمُفْسِدينَ فَوَقَعَ الْحَقُّ وَ بَطَلَ ما كانُوا يَعْمَلُونَ فَغُلِبُوا هُنالِكَ وَانْقَلَبُوا صاغِرينَ

TAWEEZ FOR FENDING OFF DEVILS AND SORCERERS

For dispelling the evils of devils and sorcerers, the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.a.) is reported to have advised of reciting Ayah al-Sakharah:

AYAH AL SAKHARAH

اِنَّ رَبَّكُمُ اللَّـهُ الَّذِي خَلَقَ السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالْاَرْضَ فِي سِتَّةِ اَيَّامٍ ثُمَّ اسْتَوَىٰ عَلَى الْعَرْشِ يُغْشِي اللَّيْلَ النَّهَارَ يَطْلُبُهُ حَثِيثًا وَالشَّمْسَ وَالْقَمَرَ وَالنُّجُومَ مُسَخَّرَاتٍ بِاَمْرِهِ اَلَا لَهُ الْخَلْقُ وَالْاَمْرُ تَبَارَكَ اللَّـهُ رَبُّ الْعَالَمِينَ ادْعُوا رَبَّكُمْ تَضَرُّعًا وَخُفْيَةًاِنَّهُ لَا يُحِبُّ الْمُعْتَدِينَ وَلَا تُفْسِدُوا فِي الْاَرْضِ بَعْدَ اِصْلَاحِهَا وَادْعُوهُ خَوْفًا وَطَمَعًا اِنَّ رَحْمَتَ اللَّـهِ قَرِيبٌ مِّنَ الْمُحْسِنِينَ

According to other traditions, the second verse (i.e. call on your lord…) is not included.

HARMEL

The Holy Prophet (s.a.w.a.) is also reported to have said, “For each tree, leaf, and fruit of harmel (also harmala; a plant having aromatic seeds containing various alkaloids and used locally for medicines, oil, and dye), there is an angel entrusted with them until they are wrecked. Verily, in the root and branches of these trees is an amulet against distress and sorcery. In the grains of this plant, there is remedy of seventy-two maladies. So, treat yourselves with this plant and with olibanum.”

EPILEPSY

It is reported that when Imam al-Rida(a.s.) once passed by an epileptic person, he ordered a cup of water to be brought to him. The Imam (a.s.) then recited Surah al-Faatehah, Surah al-Falaq, and Surah al-Nas on the cup and expectorated in it. He then ordered them to pour that water on the head and face of the epileptic person. Immediately, the man restored consciousness. The Imam (a.s.) then said to him, “This will never affect you again.”

REPELLING THE EVILS OF JINN

The Holy Prophet (s.a.w.a.) is reported to have said: Whoever is thrown by a jinni with a stone, may pick up the stone, throw it to the direction from which it came, and say this:

حَسْبِىَ اللّٰهُ وَ كَفى وَ سَمِعَ اللّٰهُ لِمَنْ دَعا لَيْسَ وَراءَ اللّٰهِ مُنْتَهى

To secure oneself from jinn, it is useful to breed chickens, roosters, and young goats in one’s house.

To secure oneself from jinn in journeys, wastelands, and places expected to be haunted, Imam al-Sadiq(a.s.) is reported to have advised that one should put his hand on the center of the head and recite the following holy verse with the lowest tone:

اَفَغَيْرَ دينِ اللّٰهِ يَبْغُونَ وَ لَهُ اَسْلَمَ مَنْ فِى السَّمواتِ وَالاَرْضِ طَوْعاً وَ كَرْهاً وَ اِلَيْهِ يُرْجَعُونَ

It is also reported that when the lands expected to be haunted are entered, it is advisable to utter the adhan.

TAWEEZ AGAINST EVIL EYES

To fend off the evil eyes, it is reported to recite verse No. 51 of Surah al-Qalam (No. 68):

وَاِن يَكَادُ الَّذِينَ كَفَرُوا لَيُزْلِقُونَكَ بِاَبْصَارِهِمْ لَمَّا سَمِعُوا الذِّكْرَ وَيَقُولُونَ اِنَّهُ لَمَجْنُونٌ

Imam al-Sadiq(a.s.) is reported to have said: Once you fear lest you will be affected by an evil eye or you may affect others with it, you may repeat the following statement three times:

ما شآءَاللّٰهُ لا قُوَّةَ اِلاّ بِاللّٰهِ الْعَلِىِ الْعَظيمِ

It is also reported that whoever puts on an attractive attire, should recite Surah al-Falaq and Surah al-Nas before leaving his house. If he does, nothing will harm him by the permission of Almighty Allah.

To fend off the evil eyes, you may raise your hand to the level of your face, recite Surah al-Faatehah, Surah al-Falaq, and Surah al-Nas, and rub your forelocks with your hands.

The following supplicatory amulet may be said to fend off the evil eyes:

اَللّهُمَّ رَبَّ مَطَرٍ حابِسٍ وَ حَجَرٍ يابِسٍ وَ لَيْلٍ دامِسٍ وَ رَطْبٍ وَ يابِسٍ رُدَّ عَيْنَ الْعايِنِ عَلَيْهِ فى كَبِدِهِ وَ نَحْرِهِ وَ مالِهِ فَارْجِعِ الْبَصَرَ هَلْ تَرى مِنْ فُطُورٍ ثُمَّ ارْجِعِ الْبَصَرَ كَرَّتَيْنِ يَنْقَلِبْ اِلَيْكَ الْبَصَرُ خاسِئاً وَ هُوَ حَسيرٌ

Another supplicatory amulet against evil eyes is the following:

اَللّهُمَّ ذَا السُّلْطانِ الْعَظيمِ وَالْمَنِّ الْقَديمِ وَالْوَجْهِ الْكَريمِ ذَا الْكَلِماتِ التّامّاتِ وَالدَّعَواتِ المُسْتَجابات عافِ فُلاناً مِنْ اَنْفُسِ الْجِنِّ وَ اَعْيُنِ الاِنْسِ

Having applied this supplicatory amulet to Imam al-Hasan and Imam al-Husayn (a.s.), the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.a.) said to his companions, “Apply this supplicatory amulet to your children.”

To protect the animals and other things from the evil eyes, Imam Ali(a.s.) is reported to have advised of using this supplicatory amulet:

بِسْمِ اللّٰهِ الرَّحْمنِ الرَّحيمِ بِسْمِ اللّٰهِ الْعَظيمِ عَبَسَ عابِسٍ وَ شَهابَ قابسٍ حَجَرَ يابِسٍ رَدَدْتُ عَيْنَالعايِنِ عَلَيْهِ مِنْ رَاءْسِهِ اِلى قَدَمَيْهِ اَخَذَ عَيْناهُ قابِضٌ بِكِلاهُ وَ عَلى جارِهِ وَاَقارِبِهِ جِلْدُهُ دَقيقٌ وَ دَمُهُ رَقيقٌ وَ بابُ الْمَكْرُوهِ تَليقُ فَارْجِعِ الْبَصَرَ هَلْ تَرى مِنْ فُطُورٍ ثمَّ ارْجِعِ الْبَصَرَ كَرَّتَيْنِ يَنْقَلِبْ اِلَيْكَ الْبَصَرُ خاسِئاً وَ هُوَ حَسيرٌ

TAWEEZ AGAINST SATAN'S EVIL INSINUATIONS

Those who suffer from Satan’s evil insinuations are advised to pray for Almighty Allah’s protection and say the following:

امنت باللّه و برسوله مخلصا له الدين

Shaykh al-Shahid has quoted the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.a.) to have said: There are two kinds of devils. The jinn devils can be dispelled by this saying:

لا حول و لا قوّة الاّ باللّه العلى العظيم

The human devils can be dispelled by invoking Almighty Allah’s blessings upon the Holy Prophet and his Household.

In a previous chapter, I have referred to a prayer offered for dispelling evil self-suggestions as well as some supplicatory amulets against devilish insinuations.

TAWEEZ AGAINST THIEVES

To protect your house against theft, it is recommended to recite the following holy verses on the handle and the lock of the door of your house:

قُلِ ادْعُوا اللَّـهَ اَوِ ادْعُوا الرَّحْمَـٰنَ اَيًّا مَّا تَدْعُوا فَلَهُ الْاَسْمَاءُ الْحُسْنَىٰوَلَا تَجْهَرْ بِصَلَاتِكَ وَلَا تُخَافِتْ بِهَا وَابْتَغِ بَيْنَ ذَٰلِكَ سَبِيلًا وَقُلِ الْحَمْدُ لِلَّـهِ الَّذِي لَمْ يَتَّخِذْ وَلَدًا وَلَمْ يَكُن لَّهُ شَرِيكٌ فِي الْمُلْكِ وَلَمْ يَكُن لَّهُ وَلِيٌّ مِّنَ الذُّلِّ وَكَبِّرْهُ تَكْبِيرًا

TAWEEZ AGAINST SCORPIONS AND SERPENTS

To fend off the stings of scorpions, it is recommended to look sharply at the suha star (a dim star in Ursa Minor) and repeat the following supplicatory prayer three times:

اَللّهُمَّ رَبَّ اَسْلَمَ صَلِّ عَلى مُحَمَّدٍ وَ آلِ مُحَمَّدٍ وَ عَجِّلْ فَرَجَهُمْ وَ سَلِّمْنا مِنْ شَرِّ كُلِّ ذى شَرٍّ

It is also reported that one (who intends to evade the stings and bites of scorpions and snakes) may look at this star and repeat the following supplicatory prayer three times:

اَللّهُمَّ رَبَّ هُودِ ابْنِ اُسَيَّةَ آمِنّى شَرَّ كُلِّ عَقْرَبٍ وَ حَيَّةٍ

Imam al-Sadiq(a.s.) is also reported to have advised the following supplicatory prayer to be said at evening for fending off the stings and bites of scorpions and serpents:

بِسْمِ اللّٰهِ وَ بِاللّٰهِ وَ صَلَّى اللّٰهُ عَلى مُحَمَّدٍ وَ آلِهِ اَخَذْتُ الْعَقارِبَ وَالْحَيّاتِ كُلَّها بِاِذْنِ اللّٰهِ تَبارَكَ وَ تَعالى بِاَفْواهِها وَ اَذْنابِها وَ اَسْماعِها وَ اَبْصارِها وَ قُواها عَنّى وَ عَمَّنْ اَحْبَبْتُ اِلى ضَحْوَةِ النَّهارِ اِنْشآءَاللّٰهُ تَعالى

To protect oneself against scorpions, it is recommended to recite the following holy verses:

سلامُ عَلى نُوحٍ فِى الْعالَمينَ اِنّا كَذلِكَ نَجْزِى الْمُحْسِنينَ اِنَّهُ مِنْ عِبادِنَا الْمُؤْمِنينَ

It is also reported that when Prophet Noah (a.s.) embarked in the Ark, he refused to take the scorpion with him. Hence, the scorpion said to Prophet Noah (a.s.), “I take upon myself that I will never sting one who says these words:

سَلامٌ عَلى مُحَمَّدٍ وَ آلِ مُحَمَّدٍ وَ عَلى نُوحٍ فِى الْعالَمينَ

According to many traditions, to rub the places stung by scorpions and other insects with salt removes the effect of poison.
