Is there a prayer to be read for the disease of epilepsy?
The Answer

Dear Brother / Sister,


1. If ayat al-kursi is read 21 times near a person who is undergoing an epileptic seizure, he will recover inshaallah.

2. A woman went to the Prophet (pbuh) and told him that her child had an epileptic seizure; she asked him to pray for her child. The Messenger of Allah advised her to read the following verse. When the woman read it, her child recovered.

"Bismillahirrahmanirrahim. Wa nunazzilu mina'l-Qur'ani ma huwa shifaun wa rahmatin li'l-mu'minin. Wa la yazidu'z-zalimina illa khasara." (al-Isra, 17/82)

ITS MEANING: "We send down (stage by stage) in the Qur'an that which is a healing and a mercy to those who believe: to the unjust it causes nothing but loss after loss."

3. The verses 115-118 of the chapter al-Mu'minun (23) should be read.

A fa hasibtum annama khalaqnakum abathan wa antum ilayna la turjaun.

Fa taala'llahu'l-maliku'l-haqqu, la ilaha illa hu. Rabbu'l-arshi'l-karim.

Wa man yad'u maallahi ilahan akhara la burhana lahu bihi, fa innama hisabuhu inda rabbihi; innaha la yuflihu'l-kafirun.

Wa qul rabbi'ghfir wa'rham, wa anta khayru'r-rahimin." (al-Mu'minun, 23/115-118) THEIR MEANING:

"Did ye then think that We had created you in jest, and that ye would not be brought back to Us (for account)?"

 Therefore exalted be Allah, the King the Reality; there is no god but He, the Lord of the Throne of Honor! If anyone invokes, besides Allah any other god, he has no authority thereof; and his reckoning will be only with his Lord!

And verily the Unbelievers will fail to win through!

So say: "O my Lord! grant Thou forgiveness and mercy! for Thou art the Best of those who show mercy!".

EXPLANATION: Abdullah bin Mas'ud (may Allah be pleased with him) read those verse into the ear of a person who had an epileptic seizure and was affected by a jinni. The person recovered immediately. Thereupon, the Prophet (pbuh) asked him, “What did you read into his ear?” Ibn Mas'ud answered: "I read the verses ‘A fa hasibtum annama khalaqnakum..’. The Messenger of Allah said, “If someone read those verses with full belief and fidelity to a mountain, the mountain would move."
