Allahumma rabb an-nas, adh-hibi ‘l-basa, ishfi Anta ash-Shafee, la shifa illa shifa’uk, shifa’an la yughadiru saqaman. (O Allah, O Lord of mankind, remove the affliction and send down cure and healing, You are The Healer; so cure in such a way that no trace of illness is left.) (Sahih Muslim)

Ya Kafi – O Self-Sufficient One; where Allah suffices His servants in all their needs. One of the established names of Allah from the well-known Names.
