Du’a asking for health

Question

Please provide the reference and Arabic text for this supplication:

“O Allah! Make my body healthy, make my hearing healthy, make my eyesight healthy. There is no Deity but You”

 

Answer

Imam Abu Dawud (rahimahullah) has recorded this du’a, as part of a longer narration. Sayyiduna Abu Bakrah (radiyallahu ‘anhu) would recite this du’a thrice every morning and evening as he heard Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) reciting it.

(Sunan Abi Dawud, Hadith: 5049)

 

Arabic Text of the du’a:

اللَّهُمَّ عَافِنِي فِي بَدَنِي، اللَّهُمَّ عَافِنِي فِي سَمْعِي، اللَّهُمَّ عَافِنِي فِي بَصَرِي، لَا إِلَهَ إِلَّا أَنْتَ

Allahumma ‘afini fi badani, Allahumma ‘afini fi sam’i, Allahumma ‘afini fi basari La ilaha illa anta

 

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
