Habib Umar bin Hafiz (may Allah protect him and benefit us by him) was asked if there is any dhikr that could be recited for protection from disease. He advised doing the following:

  1. Giving charity
  2. Seeking Allah’s forgiveness abundantly (istighfar)
  3. Bestowing abundant prayers upon the Prophet ﷺ
  4. Reciting the following verses of protection in the morning and evening:

وَلَا يَئُودُهُ حِفْظُهُمَا وَهُوَ الْعَلِيُّ الْعَظِيمُ

[He feels no fatigue in guarding and preserving them]

فَاللَّهُ خَيْرٌ حَافِظًا ۖ وَهُوَ أَرْحَمُ الرَّاحِمِينَ

[God is the best guardian and the most merciful of the merciful]

وَحِفْظًا مِّن كُلِّ شَيْطَانٍ مَّارِدٍ

 [And there is a safeguard against every rebellious Shaitan]

وَحَفِظْنَاهَا مِن كُلِّ شَيْطَانٍ رَّجِيمٍ

 [And We have guarded them From every evil spirit]

وَحِفْظًا ذَلِكَ تَقْدِيرُ الْعَزِيزِ الْعَلِيمِ

 [That is the measured determination of the All-Glorious with irresistible might, the All-Knowing]

إِنْ كُلُّ نَفْسٍ لَمَّا عَلَيْهَا حَافِظٌ

[There is no soul but has A protector over it]

بَلْ هُوَ قُرْآنٌ مَّجِيدٌ * فِي لَوْحٍ مَّحْفُوظٍ

[But this is an honored Qur’an; in a Preserved Slate]

وَهُوَ الْقَاهِرُ فَوْقَ عِبَادِهِ ۖ وَيُرْسِلُ عَلَيْكُمْ حَفَظَةً

[And He is the subjugator over His servants, and He sends over you guardian]

فَمَا أَرْسَلْنَاكَ عَلَيْهِمْ حَفِيظًا

 [We have not sent you over them as a guardian]

وَمَا أَنَا عَلَيْكُمْ بِحَفِيظٍ

[I am not a keeper over you]

إِنَّ رَبِّي عَلَى كُلِّ شَيْءٍ حَفِيظٌ

[Indeed my Lord is over all things a Guardian]

لَهُ مُعَقِّبَاتٌ مِّن بَيْنِ يَدَيْهِ وَمِنْ خَلْفِهِ يَحْفَظُونَهُ مِنْ أَمْرِ اللَّه

[For each one are successive (angels) before and behind him who protect him by the decree of Allah]

إِنَّا نَحْنُ نَزَّلْنَا الذِّكْرَ وَإِنَّا لَهُ لَحَافِظُونَ

[Indeed it is We who sent down the Qur’an and indeed We will be its guardian]

وَكُنَّا لَهُمْ حَافِظِينَ

 [It was We Who guarded them]

وَرَبُّكَ عَلَى كُلِّ شَيْءٍ حَفِيظٌ

[And your Lord over all things is Guardian]

اللَّهُ حَفِيظٌ عَلَيْهِمْ وَمَا أَنتَ عَلَيْهِم بِوَكِيلٍ

[Allah is Guardian over them; and you are not over them a manager]

وَعِندَنَا كِتَابٌ حَفِيظٌ

 [With Us is a comprehensive book]

لِكُلِّ أَوَّابٍ حَفِيظٍ

[For every returner and keeper]

We ask Allah for protection, pardon, well- being, safety and continuous ability to do what He loves and is pleasing to Him.
