I have a 4 year old cousin who has recently been losing her hair.

Mu' meneen Brothers and Sisters,

As Salaam Aleikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh.  (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)


One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:



I have a 4 year old cousin who has recently been losing her hair. Now all of her hair has fallen out and she is completely bald. She has a disease called Alopecia and the doctor has said there is no cure and that she has to wear a wig. He also said that it would be a miracle if her hair grew back. Is there a Duaa which can help her regain her hair. I have tried to e-mail you before but have received no reply. Please answer as soon as possible.


Thank you,


Yours sincerely

Losing Hair

In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is no one (no idol, no person, no grave, no prophet, no imam, no dai, nobody!) worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.


Dear and beloved sister, when Allah Subhanah afflicts one amongst His slaves with an affliction, one should seek the best available remedial help to cure that ailment; and remain constant in their supplications, trust, and hope in the Might and Power of their Lord Most Gracious.


Al-Tirmidhi Hadith 1566 Narrated by Anas ibn Malik

Allah's Messenger (saws) said, "The magnitude of the reward goes along with the magnitude of the affliction. When Allah who is Great and Glorious loves people He afflicts them, and those who accept it gladly receive Allah's good pleasure, but those who are displeased receive Allah's displeasure.


Thus my beloved sister, if one amongst your loved one is afflicted with an incurable disease, know with conviction that it is Allah who is testing the person and her loved ones to see what they do during their period of trial. How the person and their loved ones bear this trial from their Lord will determine their result in the Sight of their Lord Most Gracious.


Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 2 Surah Baqarah verses 155-157:

155 Be sure We shall test you with something of fear, and hunger, some loss in goods, or lives, or the fruits (of your toil); but give glad tidings to those who patiently persevere.

156 Who say when afflicted with calamity: "To Allah we belong and to Him is our return."

157 They are those on whom (descend) blessings from Allah and Mercy, and they are the ones that receive guidance.


Your Question: Is there a Duaa which can help her regain her hair.

Amongst the best supplications is the one which was made by the Noble Prophet Ayyub (a.s.), when he was severely tested by Allah in the loss of his health and his wealth. Allah is our witness, there is no supplication a believer makes with humility, sincerity and hope which is not answered by their Lord Most Gracious, Most Merciful.


Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 21 Surah Anbiyaa verses 83-84:

83 And (remember) Ayyub when he cried to his Lord "Truly distress has seized me but Thou art the Most Merciful of those that are merciful."

84 So We listened to him: (and) We removed the distress that was on him.


Recite the above dua of Prophet Ayyub (a.s.) as often as you can, and if the Lord Wills and Pleases, He will remove the distress from his believing slaves; for He Alone indeed has Power over all things.


Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.


Your brother and well wisher in Islam,
