Once I was experiencing heart pains so I presented myself in the court of my teacher Ustād ul Ulema Hafiz e Millat. In my grief, i was envisaging that my grave is just a few yards away. I went and said to him "Huzur! in this young age this is my situation [I am experiencing heart pains] please make dua for me".
He prayed something and then instructed me to do the following:
"As soon as you finish your fard Salah, put your right hand on your heart and recite this verse 11 times:"
أَلَا بِذِكْرِ اللَّـهِ تَطْمَئِنُّ الْقُلُوبُ
Surah ar-Ra'd, Verse 28
I prayed this for a few days and I began to feel as though I had a new life! For one month, I continued to pray this Wazifa, and until this day, it has been approximately 38 years and I haven't even felt unwell [never mind heart problems]. Now I come to understand that the Qur’an is not only prescribed for spiritual relief it is also prescribed for physical relief.
*Individual from the audience* : Hazrat please grant us all the permission to carry out this wazifa [litany].
*Allamah Saheb*: Like my teacher gave me permission I give all the people of the Ahlus Sunnah permission [to practice this wazifa]. Whoever needs this he may use it. And whoever requires it, then inform him of this.
