Khak-e-Shafa in traditions

By: Nayyar Hussain

There are several ahadith (traditions) in Tufatuz Za-ir, Safinatun Najat and Mafatihun Najat that the earth of Karbala (from the precinct of the resting place of Imam Husayn a.s.), known as khak shafa, cures every ailment save the deadly disease (by which death has been decreed).

lmam Jafar bin Muhammad as-Sadiq (a) said: At the time of eating khak shifa [for picking and holding it see (ii) below] for curing a disease say:

In the name of Allah, for Allah, O Allah, the Lord of this sacred, helpful earth, the Lord of the light which is in it, the Lord of the body which is resting in it, the Lord of the guardian angels, let it cure my disease (mention the name of the disease, then kiss the earth and eat it with some water and continue), O Allah let this pure earth be a source of abundant means of livelihood, useful knowledge and a remedy for all (my) pains and ailments.

BISMILLAAHI WA BILLAAHI ALLAAHUMMA RABBA HAAD'IHIT TURBATIL MUBAARAKATIZ'Z'AAHIRATI WA RABBAN NOORIL LAD'EE UNZILA FEEHI WA RABBAL JASADIL LAD'EE SAKANA FEEHI WA RABBAL MALAA-IKATIL MUWAKKI LEENA BIHI JA'ALHO SHIFAA-AN MIN DAA-IN

(Mention the name of the disease, then kiss the earth and eat it with some water and continue)

ALLAAHUMMAJ-A'LHU RIZQAN WAASI -A'N WA I 'LMAN NAAFI--A'N WA SHIFAA-AN MIN KULLI DAA- IN WA SUQMIN

It is also mentioned in some books that the lmam (a) had said that the earth should not be more than a seed of grain.

lmam Jafar bin Muhammad as-Sadiq (a) said: Before picking khak shafa recite:

In the name of Allah, the beneficent, the merciful, O Allah I beseech You in the name of this earth, in the name of the angel who has gathered it, in the name of the prophet who made it free from anything impure, in the name of (his) vicegerent who stayed here, send blessings on Muhammad and on his family, and let this earth cure and heal all my ailments and keep me safe from all fears.

BISMILLAAHIR RAH'MAANIR RAH'EEM ALLAAHUMMA INNEE AS-ALUKA BIH'AQQI HAAD'IHIT' T'EENATI WA BI H'AQQI L MALIKI L LAD'EE AKHAD'AHAA WA BIH'AQQIN NABIYYIL LA'DEE TANAZZAHAA WA BI H'AQQIL WAS'IYYIL LAD'EE H'ALLA FEEHAA S'ALLI A'LAA MUH'AMMADIN WA AHLI BAYTIHEE WAJ-A'L LEE FEEHAA SHIFAA-AN MIN KULLI DAA--IN WA AMNAN MIN KULLI KHAWFIN

Then lmam also said: When you have picked khak shafa recite:

Surah al-Fatihah, Surah Ya Sin, Surah al-Qadr, Surah Al-Kafirun, Surah al-Ikhlas, Surah al-Falaq, Surah an-Nas and Ayatal Kursi

And the following dua:

O Allah, in the name of Muhammad (s), Your servant, Your dearest friend. Your prophet, Your messenger, Your trustee; in the name of Amir aI Mumeneen Ali ibn Abi Talib (a), Your servant, brother of Your messenger; in the name of Fatimah (a), daughter of Your Prophet (s) and wife of Your Wali (a); in the name of Hasan (a) and Husayn (a), in the name of the rightly guided guides; in the name of the guardian angel; in the name of the body covered by it; in the name of all angels and messengers, make this earth cure my disease and also of those who beseech You for removal of ailments, pains, diseases; and keep me (and all the beseechers) protected from all fears. O Allah, for the sake of Muhammad (s) and his family (a), let this (earth) give me useful knowledge, abundant means of livelihood, let it cure my pains and diseases, let it keep me safe from misfortunes; injuries, all kinds of pains. Verily You have power over all things. O Allah, the Lord of this sacred, blessed earth and the angel who descended on it and the vicegerent who is resting under it, send blessings on Muhammad (s) and on the children of Muhammad (s), and let it help me and benefit me. Verily You have power over all things.

Muntakheb Ul  Aqwaal
"Knowledge is better than wealth because it protects you while you have to guard wealth. it decreases if you keep on spending it but the more you make use of knowledge ,the more it increases . what you get through wealth disappears as soon as wealth disappears but what you achieve through knowledge will remain even after you."

(Hazrat Ali Ibne Abi Talib (A.S)
