Reciting Surah Fatihah 313 times


Is there a Hadith which states that a person should recite Surah Fatihah 313 times for cure and what is the proper time for doing this?



I have not come across any narration which specifies reciting Surah Fatihah 313 times. This could be based on some person’s experience.

Reciting Surah Fatihah in general is a cure for illness. In another Hadith, reciting it seven times has been mentioned. See here and here


And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
