Du’as For Protection Against Diseases


Is there any du’a that we can read for protection from Corona virus?



You could recite the following du’as in which Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) sought general protection from diseases/sickness:


1) Sayyiduna Anas ibn Malik (radiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) would make the following du’a:

اللَّهُمَّ إِنِّي أَعُوذُ بِكَ مِنَ البَرَصِ وَالْجُنُونِ وَالْجُذَامِ وَمِنْ سَيِّئِ الْأَسْقَامِ

Allhumma inni a’udhu bika minal barasi wal jununi wal judhami wa min sayyi-il asqam



O Allah! I seek refuge in You from leprosy, madness and evil diseases.

(Sunan Abi Dawud, Hadith: 1549 and Sahih Ibn Hibban; Al Ihsan, Hadith: 1017. See here)


2) Sayyiduna Abu Bakrah (radiyallahu ‘anhu) would recite the following du’a thrice every morning and evening as he heard Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) reciting it:

اللَّهُمَّ عَافِنِي فِي بَدَنِي، اللَّهُمَّ عَافِنِي فِي سَمْعِي، اللَّهُمَّ عَافِنِي فِي بَصَرِي، لَا إِلَهَ إِلَّا أَنْتَ

Allahumma ‘afini fi badani, Allahumma ‘afini fi sam’i, Allahumma ‘afini fi basari La ilaha illa anta



O Allah! Make my body healthy, make my hearing healthy, make my eyesight healthy. There is no Deity but You

(Sunan Abi Dawud, Hadith: 5049. See here)

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
