Prayers for headache relife (Health)

Description: According to Makarim al-Akhlaq, al-Najashi, having had headache, wrote a message to the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.a.) complaining about his ache. In response, the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.a.) sent him a supplicatory amulet written in a patch. When al-Najashi put the patch in his bonnet, his headache was relieved. This is the supplicatory amulet:

بِسْمِ اللّٰهِ الرَّحْمٰنِ الرَّحِيْمِ لا اِلٰهَ اِلَّا اللّٰهُ الْمَلِكُ الْحَقُّ الْمُبِيْنُ شَهِدَاللّٰهُ... لِلَّهِ نُوْرٌ وَ حِكْمَةٌ وَ عِزُّ وَ قُوَّةٌ وَ بُرْهَانٌ وَ قُدْرَةٌ وَ سُلْطَانٌ وَ رَحْمَةٌ يَا مَنْ لَّا يَنَامُ لَا اِلٰهَ اِلَّا اللّٰهُ اَبْرَهِيْمُ خَلِيْلُ اللّٰهِ لَا اِلٰهَ اِلَّا اللّٰهُ مُوْسٰي كَلِيْمُ اللّٰهِ لَا اِلٰهَ اِلَّا اللّٰهُ عِيْسٰي رُوْحُ اللّٰهِ وَ كَلِمَتُهُ لَا اِلٰهَ اِلَّا اللّٰهُ مُحَمَّدٌ رَسُوْلُ اللّٰهِ وَ صَفِيُّهٗ وَ صِفْوَتُهٗ صَلَّي اللّٰهُ عَلَيْهِ وَ اٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّمَ اُسْكُنْ سَكَّنْتُكَ بِمَنْ يَسْكُنُ لَهٗ مَا فِي السَّمٰوٰتِ وَالْاَرْضِ وَ بِمَنْ سَكَنَ لَهٗ مَا فِي الَّيْلِ وَالنَّهَارِ وَهُوَ السَّمِيْعُ الْعَلِيْمُ فَسَخَّرْنَا لَهُ الرِّيْحَ تَجْرِيْ بِاَمْرِهٖ رَخآءً حَيْثُ اَصَابَ وَ الشَّيَاطِيْنَ كُلَّ بَنّآءٍ وَ غَوَّاصٍ اَلَآ اِلَي اللّٰهِ تَصِيْرُ الْاُمُوْرُ

Description: The following incident is quoted from the book of Rabi’ al-Abrar: In Turtus (a city western Syria), Al-Ma’mun, the ‘Abbasid ruler, was once affected by headache that none could treat. Having heard about this, the Roman emperor sent him a bonnet and a letter in which he wrote, “Having been informed about your headache, I sent you this bonnet so that you would put it on your head and your ache would vanish.” Anticipating that the bonnet would be poisoned, al-Ma’mun ordered the messenger to put it on his head. However, no harm happened to the messenger. Al-Ma’mun then ordered the bonnet to be put on the head of another man who suffered from headache. Therefore, his pain vanished. Only then did he put it on his head and his headache vanished. Surprised, al-Ma’mun untied the bonnet and found the following inscription written therein:

بِسْمِ اللّٰهِ الرَّحْمٰنِ الرَّحِيْمِ كَمْ مِنْ نِعْمَةٍ لِلَّهِ فِيْ عِرْقٍ سَاكِنٍ حٰمٓ عٓسٓقٓ لَا يُصَدَّعُوْنَ عَنْهَا وَلَا يُنْزِفُوْنَ مِنْ كَلَامِ الرَّحْمٰنِ خَمَدَتِ النِّيْرَانُ وَلَا حَوْلَ وَلَا قُوَّةَ اِلَّا بِاللّٰهِ وَ جَالَ نَفْعُ الدَّوَآءِ فِيْكَ كَمَا يَجُوْلُ مآءُ الرَّبِيْعِ فِي الْغُصْنِ

اَعُوْذُ بِاللّٰهِ الَّذِيْ سَكَنَ لَهٗ مَافِي الْبَرِّ وَالْبَحْرِ وَمَافِي السَّمَاوَاتِ وَمَافِي الْاَرْضِ وَھُوَ السَّمِيْعُ الْعَلِيْمُ
