What are the curing verses in the noble Quran?


All perfect praise be to Allaah, the Lord of the worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of worship except Allaah, and that Muhammad, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, is His Slave and Messenger.

There are six curing verses in the Quran. They are as follows:

1.     Allaah The Almighty Says (what means): {Fight them; Allaah will punish them by your hands and will disgrace them and give you victory over them and satisfy the breasts of a believing people.} [Quran 9:14]

2.     Allaah The Almighty Says (what means): {O mankind, there has to come to you instruction from your Lord and healing for what is in the breasts and guidance and mercy for the believers.} [Quran 10:57]

3.     Allaah The Almighty Says (what means): {Then eat from all the fruits and follow the ways of your Lord laid down [for you]." There emerges from their bellies a drink, varying in colors, in which there is healing for people. Indeed in that is a sign for a people who give thought.} [Quran 16:69]

4.     Allaah The Almighty Says (what means): {And We send down of the Quran that which is healing and mercy for the believers, but it does not increase the wrongdoers except in loss.} [Quran 17:82]

5.     Allaah The Almighty Says (what means): {And it is He who feeds me and gives me drink. And when I am ill, it is He who cures me.} [Quran 26:79-80]

6.     Allaah The Almighty Says (what means): {And if We had made it a non-Arabic Quran, they would have said, "Why are its verses not explained in detail [in our language]? Is it a foreign [recitation] and an Arab [messenger]?" Say, "It is, for those who believe, a guidance and cure." And those who do not believe -- in their ears is deafness, and it is upon them blindness. Those are being called from a distant place.} [Quran 41:44]

Allaah Knows best.
