Salawat ash-Shifa


Assalaamu alaikum dear Shaykh Gibril.

I Pray you and your family are in the best of iman and aafiyah. We had a shifaa gathering today for some people who were ill and amongst certain salawats we read salat al tibb (tibbil quloobi wa da wa iha) one of the sisters was asking if there was history behind this salawaat? Or who penned it? I know it is encouraged to read it for shifaa and many other ailments  but i cant remember if it was a dua the prophet sallallahu alaihi wa sallam said or one of the awliya wrote? Iv tried to look on line but not found the answer yet.

Jazakum Allahu Khairan


Alaykum Salam,

It is from the Awliya such as, in Sham: Muhammad Sa`id al-Burhani; in Yemen: Habib Abd Allah b. Shihab. It is based on the verse from Surat al-Tawba:

وَصَلِّ عَلَيْهِمْ إِنَّ صَلاَتَكَ سَكَنٌ لَّهُمْ

{And pray for blessings over them; truly your prayer for blessings is serenity for them} and other evidence.

Hajj Gibril
