Can you tell me in the light Quran and Hadith about Epilepsy


Assalam alikum

I am a mom of 19 years old daughter . She has epilepsy from the age of Nine and it’s not controlled like she having seizures every week sometimes more than one.

Can you tell me in the light Quran and Hadith is it a physiological condition or some saya or jinn as believed in the past.

I am very depressed about her condition. If you think that it is something different from physical condition please help me by giving some advice. Jazakallah khair


Wa Alaikum al-salam

thanks for your question

According to some of ahadith, one of the reasons for these seizers is jinn. According to these narrations, there are some treatments for it which inshallah will help:

  • Recite this dua for her:

عزمت عليك يا رب بالعزيمة التي عزم بها علي بن أبي طالب عليه السلام ورسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم على جن وادي الصبرة فأجابوا واطاعوا لما اجبت واطت واخرجت عن فلان بنت فلانة الساعة. Instead of فلان بنت فلانه  say her name and her mother’s name.

  • If she had a seizures, Recite surah al-fatiha and mauwazatain (surah an-nas and al-falaq) on a glass of water and splash it on her head and face.
  • Surah Ash-Shūrā: right it down on a dish or plate with saffron water, then wash it with water, and drink the water.
  • Recite surah al-fatiha for her a lot, especially in case of seizures.
  • Bakhoor of lady Mariam

The above mentioned, can be part of the reason (or not be the reason at all) and not the full reason. hence, we strictly advice that you seek best medical attention for her. InshaAllah she feels better soon.
