Fear of dying form rabies

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: I am in huge fear of dying of rabies. Please help me. A dog had bitten me 14 years ago but at that time I have not taken vaccine. Later after 6-7 years I took the vaccine. But now I am very much worried if I get rabies in the future. So please help me with some dua for protection from rabies. The worry is effecting badly my life.


A: Do not worry, Insha-Allah you will not get rabies. Recite the following dua morning and evening.

اللَّهُمَّ إِنِّى أَسْأَلُكَ الْعَافِيَةَ فِى الدُّنْيَا وَالآخِرَةِ اللَّهُمَّ إِنِّى أَسْأَلُكَ الْعَفْوَ وَالْعَافِيَةَ فِى دِينِى وَدُنْيَاىَ وَأَهْلِى وَمَالِى

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
