Healing Through Allah's Names

Jan 18, 2021

This is an article from The Divine Names Series.

A Cherished Muslimah heals through Allah's mercy and enrichment.  She knows that each difficulty she faces is a means to make her a better person, and she knows that despite her hardships she has so much to be grateful for, including the difficulties she is facing!

When He opens up your understanding of deprivation,
The deprivation becomes the same as the gift

Hikam (84) - Ibn Ata iLlah al Sikandari

          Communicating with Knowledge & Wisdom

This January, cultivate the habit of healing by submitting to Allah's names of mercy, healing and enrichment, healing yourself as an act of worship.

Your body has a right over you, your eyes have a right over you, and your wife has a right over you.

Sahih al-Bukhari (5199)

A Cherished Muslimah submits to His mercy, knowing that just as Allah is ever-merciful towards her, she owes it to herself to be mercy towards herself.

It may be that my Lord's mercy, when He distributes it,
Will be apportioned in accordance with the magnitude of sins.

Imam Sharaf Ad Din Al Busiri


Here are twelve beautiful and lofty names of Allah, through which you can find inner healing:




Be merciful towards yourself, just as Ar Rahman is The Merciful, show yourself that mercy. Be gentle with yourself – mother yourself.


Always be merciful to yourself, just as Ar Rahim is always, continuously merciful towards us. This isn't about being merciful once a day or once a week, but always.


Love yourself unconditionally, knowing that Al-Wadud does so. Be lovingly kind to yourself.

AR-RAŪF (83)

Let Ar-Rauf, the pinnacle of mercy, be your sufficiency whilst healing.  When you find yourself low, pick yourself up by being more merciful to yourself than you already are. 






Submit to knowing that any pain that breaks you has been sent to make you by Al Jabbar – the healer.

'Verily, in every hardship is relief,
Verily, in every hardship is relief.'

Al Inshirah (94:5-6) 


Ask Al Mubdi, the one who starts things, to start your healing journey.  Remember, just take the next step toward healing, whatever that step is.  Baby steps.

AL-MUĪ’D (60)

Ask Al Muid, the one who brings things back, to bring you back to emotional and spiritual health.

A strong believer is better and is more lovable to Allah than a weak believer

Muslim (2664)


Call upon Al Muhyi, the giver of life to heal you back to life.

'You sometimes see the earth lifeless,
yet when We send down water, it stirs and swells and produces every kind of joyous growth.'
Al-Hajj (22:5)


Call upon Al Wajid, the finder, who finds you when you are lost

He who has lost You – what has he found?
He who has found You - what has he lost?

Intimate Discourses (28) - Ibn Ata iLlah al Sikandari

AN-NĀFI (92)

Call upon An Nafi, the one who cures, to heal you.

And when I am sick, it is He who cures me

Ash Shu'ara (26:80)




Enrich yourself through Al Mughni, the one who enriches you. With Him by your side, you will never be poor.

Allah is sufficient for us, and He is an excellent protector!

Surah At-Taubah (9:129)


          To Conclude

A Cherished Muslimah rests in the healing of Allah.  She allows herself to be looked after by Ar Rahman, cared for and looked after.  And in this allowing, she heals herself.  She takes care of herself from a place of the merciful mother, caring for herself how she would care for others.
