Dua for Removing Severe Migraine

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by ShariahBoard.org

Assalamualaikum Warahmatullah Mawlana Sahib

I suffer from severe migraine for most of the month. Doctors in the past have not found any specific reason for it. Is there any dua you can provide to me which can help alleviate this pain?

First of all, if possible for you, it is the best if you get Hijamah done through a female doctor with strict observance of hijab and purdah. Rasulullah Sallallaho Alyhi Wasallam had gotten Hijamah done when he was suffering from headache. In addition, Hijamah has been described as a source of shifa (cure) for 7 severe diseases.

عن ابن عباس أن النبى عليه السلام قال : ( الحجامة فى الرأس شفاء من سبع : من الجنون والجذام والبرص والصداع والنعاس وظلمة العينين ووجع الأضراس(تہذیب الآثار للطبری:۲۸۷۰،شرح ابن بطال:۱۸/۴وعمدۃ القاری:۳۱/۳۰۸)

These diseases include insanity, leprosy, gangrene, headache, drowsiness, weakeness of eyes and tooth ache.

Secondly, before sunrise every day and when the pain seems to be starting, (your or someone else should) read the following supplications along with “Ya-Jabbar” and “Ya-Salam”, seven times each, with Durood Shareef (1, 3, 5 or any odd number of times) at the beginning and at the end and keep on blowing on yourself:

وَبِالْحَقِّ اَنْزَلْنٰہُ وَبِالْحَقِّ نَزَلَ ۔ وَمَآ اَرْسَلْنٰکَ اِلَّا مُبَشِّرًا وَّنَذِیْرًا (اسراء: ۱۰۵)

اِذَا جَآءَ  نَصْرُ اللہِ وَالْفَتْحُ (النصر)

لَا یُصَدَّعُوْنَ عَنْہَا وَلَا یُنْزِفُوْنَ (واقعہ: ۱۹)

َٔاعُوْذُ بِاللّٰہِ مِنْ شَرِّ کُلِّ عِرْقٍ نَّعَّارٍ وَمِنْ شَرِّ ؛کُلِّ حَرٍّ النَّارِ۔

InshahAllah with the barakah of the above supplications and names of Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta‘ala, the pain will subside.

عن ابن عباس أن رسول الله صلى الله عليه و سلم احتجم وهو محرم في رأسه من شقيقة كانت به ۔

عن علقمة أنه سمع عبد الرحمن الأعرج أنه سمع عبد الله بن بحينة يحدث : أن رسول الله صلى الله عليه و سلم احتجم بلحي جمل من طريق مكة وهو محرم في وسط رأسه (صحیح بخاری:کتاب الطب: باب الحجم من الشقيقة والصداع،۵۳۷۵و۵۳۷۳)
