The All-Healing - Ash-Shāfī - Ash-Shāfī

Aisha, (may God be pleased with her), narrated that when she would become ill, the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) would put his right hand over the place of ailment and say: “O God, the Lord of the people! Remove the trouble, for You are the Healer (Al-Shāfī). No healing is of any avail but Yours; healing that will leave behind no ailment.” (Bukhari) He is the healer of the diseases of the body and He is the healer of the diseases of the heart—such as rancor, envy, and hatred. God says in the Qur’an: “… and [God will] heal the hearts of a believing people.” (Qur’an, 9:14) Therefore, we should turn to ash-Shāfī first whether we are dealing with a physical ailment or an ailment of the heart.

So if the treatment is applied to the disease, the disease is cured by the Will of God.” (Muslim)
