Salam aleikum. Please ask our beloved shaykh Hisham to pray for my brother [private].
His teeth are aching so much for months now and the dentists can’t find a solution.
My brother is even thinking about suicide. Please make dua for him.
Mawlana Shaykh Hisham is praying for your brother. May Allah grant healing and relief to your brother. Your brother is enduring as the Awliya have endured — such as `Abd Allah b. Rawaha the Prophet’s poet and one of his standard-bearers when he complained to him of the same, saying:
يَا رَسُولَ اللهِ إِنِّي أَشْتَكِي ضِرْسِي آذَانِي وَاشْتَدَّ عَلَيَّ
Yā Rasūl Allāh, innī ashtakī ḍirsī, ādhānī washtadda ʿalay!
“Messenger of Allah, I am complaining of my toothache, it is harming me in the extreme!” — and his reward and high levels are assured in sha Allah, so let him take heart and put his trust in Allah.
Let him recite the above complaint and follow it up with the below supplication on the cheek where it hurts the most. If he is unable, take him to visit pious people and/or bring them to visit him and ask them to place their hand on the cheek where it hurts the most and recite seven times the duaa which the Prophet recited over Ibn Rawaha, and of which he said:
وَالَّذِي بَعَثَنِي بِالْحَقِّ لَأَدْعُوَنَّ لَكَ بِدَعْوَةٍ لَا يَدْعُو بِهَا مُؤْمِنٌ مَكْرُوبٌ إِلَّا كَشَفَ اللهُ عَنْهُ كَرْبَهُ
“By Him Who sent me with the truth, I will indeed supplicate for you with a supplication that no afflicted believer supplicates with but Allah has already lifted from Him his affliction!”
The duaa is:
اللهُمَّ أَذْهِبْ عَنْهُ سُوءَ مَا يَجِدُ وَفُحْشَهُ بِدَعْوَةِ نَبِيِّكَ الْمُبَارَكِ الْمَكِينِ عِنْدَكَ سَبْعَ مَرَّاتٍ
Allāhumma adh-hib ʿanhu sūʾa mā yajidu wa-fuḥshahu bi-daʿwati Nabiyyika al-mubāraki al-makīni ʿindak! x7
“O Allah, remove from him the worst of what he is experiencing and its intensity with the supplication of your Prophet who is blessed and firmly-established in Your presence!” seven times.
Narrated from Nuh b. Dhakwan by al-Bayhaqi in al-Da`awaat al-Kabir (2:258 610) and Dala’il al-Nubuwwa (6:182-183).
You may do so as well whenever needed or on a regular basis.
