Dua for Head Pain

Some of the recommended dua include invoking specific verses from the Quran. Below are the Duas we can recite for seeking relief from head pain:

Dua 1: Invocation From Sahih Muslim (2202)

According to the hadith found in Sahih Muslim 2202, Uthman b. Abu al-‘As Al-Thaqafi expressed his pain to Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) and was advised to place his hand on the afflicted area and say the following Dua: 

“Bismillah” (بسم الله‎‎) (in the name of Allah) three times, then the following Dua seven times:

أَعُوذُ بِاللَّهِ وَقُدْرَتِهِ مِنْ شَرِّ مَا أَجِدُ وَأُحَاذِرُ

I seek refuge with Allah and with His Power from the evil that I find and that I fear

This dua is a way to seek Allah’s protection and alleviate the pain. We can recite this Dua while placing our hand on the area of pain or by simply focusing our intention on it.

Dua 2: Prophet’s Healing Touch From Sahih Al-Bukhari (5743)

In Sahih al-Bukhari 5743, `Aisha (RA) narrated how the Prophet (ﷺ) used to treat some of his wives by placing his right hand over the area of their pain and reciting a powerful Dua to heal them. The Dua invoked Allah’s mercy, saying, 

اللَّهُمَّ رَبَّ النَّاسِ أَذْهِبِ الْبَاسَ، اشْفِهِ وَأَنْتَ الشَّافِي، لاَ شِفَاءَ إِلاَّ شِفَاؤُكَ، شِفَاءً لاَ يُغَادِرُ سَقَمًا ‏

O Allah, the Lord of the people! Remove the trouble and heal the patient, for You are the Healer. No healing is of any avail but Yours; healing that will leave behind no ailment.” 

This Dua is a powerful reminder of Allah’s infinite mercy and the Prophet’s profound spiritual compassion. It teaches us to trust in Allah’s healing power and to seek His help in times of illness. We can recite this powerful dua for migraine pain, sinus headaches, and any other head pain.

Dua 3: Recitation of Quranic Verse (Surah Al-Waqi’Ah 56:19)

Another Dua for head pain consists of reciting a Quranic verse from Surah Al-Waqi’ah (Quran 56:19). The verse states, 

لَّا يُصَدَّعُونَ عَنْهَا وَلَا يُنزِفُونَ ١٩

That will cause them neither headache nor intoxication.” 

The recommendation is to recite this verse three times before and after prayers, blowing it on the affected area. Reciting this Dua not only provides relief from head pain but strengthens our faith in Allah and the Quran.

It reminds us that Allah has provided us with remedies and solutions for our physical and emotional ailments through the Quran and Sunnah. Therefore, we should turn to these sources for guidance and healing.

Dua 4: Invoking Healing Through Allah’s Sovereignty

To seek a cure for head pain, we can also recite a supplication derived from Hadith sources asking Allah to heal us. This particular dua is found in Hisn al-Muslim 148, At-Tirmidhi, and Abu Dawud. It’s also mentioned in Sahih At-Tirmidhi 2/210 and Sahihul-Jami’ As-Saghir 5/180, as verified by Al-Albani.

The dua goes as follows: 

أَسْـأَلُ اللهَ العَـظيـم، رَبَّ العَـرْشِ العَـظيـم أَنْ يَشْفـيك .

I ask Almighty Allah, Lord of the Magnificent Throne, to make you well.

This dua is reminiscent of the Prophet’s (SAW) statement that visiting the sick and praying for their cure is effective if the time of death hasn’t arrived. Reciting this dua seven times is thought to aid in healing from the disease.

Dua 5: Morning Supplication With Quranic Verses

Reciting specific supplications along with the names of Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala can alleviate head pain. Before sunrise each day and when the pain initiates, recite the following supplications:

وَبِٱلْحَقِّ أَنزَلْنَـٰهُ وَبِٱلْحَقِّ نَزَلَ ۗ وَمَآ أَرْسَلْنَـٰكَ إِلَّا مُبَشِّرًۭا وَنَذِيرًۭا ١٠٥ 

We have sent down the Quran in truth, and with the truth it has come down. We have sent you ˹O Prophet˺ only as a deliverer of good news and a warner.” (Surah Al-Isra 17:105)

اِذَا جَآءَ  نَصْرُ اللہِ وَالْفَتْحُ 

لَا یُصَدَّعُوْنَ عَنْہَا وَلَا یُنْزِفُوْنَ

َٔاعُوْذُ بِاللّٰہِ مِنْ شَرِّ کُلِّ عِرْقٍ نَّعَّارٍ وَمِنْ شَرِّ ؛کُلِّ حَرٍّ النَّارِ

Include يا جبّارYa-Jabbar” and يا سلامYa-Salam,” repeating each seven times. Begin and end with Durood Shareef, choosing an odd number of repetitions, such as 1, 3, or 5. Remember to blow on oneself after recitation.

Get Rid of Head Pain With the Power of Dua and Quranic Verses

Reciting specific Duas from the Quran and Hadith provides a profound avenue for seeking relief from head pain. Dua 1, derived from Sahih Muslim 2202, emphasizes placing one’s hand on the affected area and reciting “Bismillah,” seeking refuge from Allah’s power.

From Sahih al-Bukhari 5743, Dua 2 shows the Prophet’s healing touch and acknowledges Allah as the ultimate healer. In Dua 3, participants recite Surah Al-Waqi’ah 56:19, emphasizing the healing power of Quranic verses.

Also, Dua 4, invoking Allah’s sovereignty, and Dua 5, a morning supplication with Quranic verses, further highlight the holistic approach Islam encourages for seeking relief from head pain. Embracing these spiritual practices reinforces faith and trust in Allah’s healing mercy.
