During the life of the world since a baby, until we close the eyes, various diseases will come to our lives every time. No one has never been touched by the disease. The various diseases suffered by a person is actually a test and temptation from God so that they repent and return to Allah. Curing those diseases is not a difficult matter for Allah. In addition to medical treatment, ask Him for help. Qur’an is a medicine and healer for various diseases suffered by humans, both medical ailments, psychiatric and diseases caused by disturbances of jin and magic.
“Indeed, this is a reminder, so he who wills may take to his Lord a way.” (Surah Al-Insan 76:29)
1. Surah An-Nahl 16:49-50
“And to Allah prostrates whatever is in the heavens and whatever is on the earth of creatures, and the angels [as well], and they are not arrogant. They fear their Lord above them, and they do what they are commanded.”
We must understand and believe what the two verses say, if we are sick then all kinds of viruses and bacteria and wild cells that cause disease in the body is all subject to God. They will carry out what God has commanded them. If we sincerely ask God to get rid of them then God will grant it and the body will be surely recovered from the various illnesses.

“If We had sent down this Qur’an upon a mountain, you would have seen it humbled and coming apart from fear of Allah. And these examples We present to the people that perhaps they will give thought. He is Allah, other than whom there is no deity, Knower of the unseen and the witnessed. He is the Entirely Merciful, the Especially Merciful. He is Allah, other than whom there is no deity, the Sovereign, the Pure, the Perfection, the Bestower of Faith, the Overseer, the Exalted in Might, the Compeller, the Superior.
Exalted is Allah above whatever they associate with Him. He is Allah, the Creator, the Inventor, the Fashioner; to Him belong the best names. Whatever is in the heavens and earth is exalting Him. And He is the Exalted in Might, the Wise.”
This explains that a mountain alone can be destroyed by the Qur’an, let alone disease. Allah creates, organizes and forms all things, and has asmaulhusna. Everything that is in the heavens and the earth always glorifies at all times with Him. He is mighty and all-wise.

“Indeed, your Lord knows, [O Muhammad], that you stand [in prayer] almost two-thirds of the night or half of it or a third of it, and [so do] a group of those with you. And Allah determines [the extent of] the night and the day. He has known that you [Muslims] will not be able to do it and has turned to you in forgiveness, so recite what is easy [for you] of the Qur’an.
He has known that there will be among you those who are ill and others traveling throughout the land seeking [something] of the bounty of Allah and others fighting for the cause of Allah. So recite what is easy from it and establish prayer and give zakah and loan Allah a goodly loan. And whatever good you put forward for yourselves – you will find it with Allah. It is better and greater in reward. And seek forgiveness of Allah. Indeed, Allah is Forgiving and Merciful.”
This dua is long but has a deep meaning in it. Allah knows that we can’t do everything alone and we will get ill someday, so He wants to give help to us. However, we need to read and understand Qur’an because the healing power is from Qur’an.
That’s all of Qur’an dua for diseases. Hope we can do the dua when we get sick and always remember Allah in tough condition.
