A du’a for sharpening the eyesight

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by HadithAnswers.com

Somebody shared the following with me:

To increase light or vision (noor) in the eyes, recite Surah Fatihah once, then Ayatul Kursi and then once the following dua:- “U-eedhu nura basaree binuril lahil ladhi la yutfaa”,

Translation: “I seek refuge for the light of my eyes by the light of Allah(SWT), which does not become extinguished”.

Does the above come from any Hadith and is it authentic?



I haven’t seen this prescription in any Hadith source.

It is possibly a suggested treatment based on experience, in which case it would be permissible to practice upon as long as one does not regard it as sunnah.


And Allah Ta’ala Knows best,
