Quranic Dua for Health By Sayyidina Ayyoob Alayhis Salam

Ayyoob Alayhis Salam suffered from a serious disease which was like leprosy and which affected his whole body except the heart and the tongue. In this miserable condition too he spent his time in prayers and in giving thanks to ALLAH Ta’ala with his heart and tongue.

Because of this serious illness all his relatives, friends, and neighbors avoided him and placed him near a garbage dump outside the city. Nobody went near him except his wife who used to take care of him.

One should be patient and thank ALLAH Ta’ala from the bottom of his heart for whatever he has. And keep reciting the abode dua of Ayyoob Alayhis Salam as much as he can.
