Prayers for children to recover from the flu are often read by parents as a form of effort when their child is sick with the flu. The flu is an unpleasant disease for children. The child will continue to cry agitatedly because the flu strikes.
The child who keeps whimpering because his nose is bad (sometimes he also has a fever), worries the mother. In addition to trying to go to the doctor, reading prayers and submitting to God’s destiny can also be an option.
Asking the Almighty to cure the flu can be a powerful weapon. Here, Memora.ID summarizes the prayers for the child to recover from the flu.
Prophet Muhammad always offered prayers for the healing of others. He read this prayer for mothers so that their beloved child can quickly recover from the flu. The following is Prophet Muhammad’s prayer for the healing of the sick as a prayer for the child to recover from the flu.
O God, Lord of the people, take away the pain, heal, you are the healer, there is no healer but you, healer who leaves no disease
Allahumma rabban nasi, adzhibil ba’sa. Isyfi. Antas syafi. La syafiya illa anta syifa’an la yughadiru saqaman.
Translation: “My Lord, God of man, remove the disease. Give healing because you are a healer. There is no one who can cure the disease except You with a cure that leaves no pain.”
There is a special prayer that parents can read on the sick child’s body. Prophet Muhammad used to read this prayer to receive healing from the Almighty. Put your hand on the sick child’s nose and then read this prayer sincerely and ask God for the flu to be quickly removed from the child’s body.
Place your hand on the sore spot and recite the Bismillah three times. Then read the following verse.
“A’uudzu billahi wa qudrotihi min syarri maa ajidu wa uhaadziru”
Translation: I seek refuge in Allah and His power from the evil I am feeling and fear (HR. Muslim).
As a form of parenting effort, try to read sholawat with a sincere heart when your heart feels confused and uncertain when you see your child has the flu. Sholawat for health you can read for children with flu to recover quickly i.e. reading sholawat tibbil qulub that parents can read as a prayer for children to recover from the flu.
Allohumm sholli ‘ala sayyidina Muhammadin, tibbil quluubi wa dawaa-iha, wa ‘aafiyatil abdaani wa syifa-iha, wa nuuril abshoori wa dliyaa-iha, wa ‘ala aalihi wa shahbihi wa sallim.
Translation: “O Allah, grant mercy to our Prophet Muhammad, who is the medicine and healer of the heart, healer and savior of the body, light and radiance of vision, and grant his family and friends, and grant prosperity.”
Read dhikr so that you as a parent feel calm and believe that Allah is always by your side. You are never alone because the Merciful One always gives light to you and also to your children. Dhikr tahlil can make you feel sincere in the face of all the tests of Allah, including the pain of the flu that is felt by your child. Following is the tahlil dhikr reading that you can read as a prayer for your child to recover from the flu.
Laa ilaaha illallah wallahu akbar, laa ilaaha illallah wahdahu laa syariikalah, laa ilaaha illallah lahul mulku wa lahul hamdu, laa ilaaha illallah wa laa haula wa laa quwwata illa billaah.
Translation: There is no God who has the right to be worshiped besides Allah and He is the Great One, There is no God who has the right to be worshiped besides Allah alone and there is no partner for Him. There is no God who has the right to be worshiped apart from Allah, only his kingdom and all praise. There is no God who has the right to be worshiped apart from Allah and there is no power or strength except with Allah
