Sigha and prayers in shoes

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.


Q-1) What is Sigha?

Beloved sister in Islam, ‘sigha’ does not seem to be a Quranic or Arabic term! Thus if you could kindly explain what it relates to, we would be honored to give you further details about the authenticity of the term.


Q-2) I have seen people doing their salah with shoes on?  is it permitted ?  Can we recite Quran with our shoes on?

There is absolutely no such restriction that a believer cannot pray with his shoes on, provided his shoes have no filth or impurities on it. More often than not, the Messenger of Allah (saws) and the noble companions prayed with their shoes on, in the humble masjid at Medina; simply because the Prophet’s Mosque was on bare ground without any carpets or floor coverings, unlike our mosques today.


Abu Sa'eed reported that once the Prophet (saws) removed his shoes while he was praying, and the people behind him did likewise. When he finished the prayer, he (saws) asked, "Why did you remove your shoes?" They said, "We saw you remove yours." He (saws) said, "Gabriel came to me and informed me that there was some filth on them. Therefore, when one of you comes to the mosque, he should turn his shoes over and examine them. If one finds any dirt on them, he should rub them against the ground and pray with them on."

Related by Ahmad, Abu Dawud, al-Hakim, Ibn Hibban and Ibn Khuzaimah.


But today, the floors of most mosques are well-tiled, or covered, or carpeted, etc., thus it would be considered proper to pray in such mosques without shoes. But if one is praying outdoors on bare ground, there is absolutely no harm if one prays with his/her shoes on, provided the shoes have no filth or impurities on them.


And when one is allowed to pray with his shoes on, the believers have absolutely no restriction if they wish to recite the Glorious Quran while wearing their shoes.


Q-3) Due to pain, I suffer.  medicine is not helpful.  Is there  some dua for pain killing according to sunnahplease send me some dua for shifaa also.  i will be thankful to you.

One of the best supplications to implore the Merciful Lord when one is ill or suffering from any kind of pain, is the dua of Prophet Ayyub (a.s.) with which he (a.s.) supplicated the Merciful Lord when he was extremely ill.


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: We removed the distress that was on him, and We restored his people to him and doubled their number as a Grace from Ourselves, and a thing for commemoration for all who serve Us.


There are several authentic narrations from the Messenger of Allah (saws) regarding the prayers the Prophet (saws) taught the believers when seeking the Mercy of Allah Subhanah in ill-health:


Aishah reports that the Prophet (saws) used to seek refuge in Allah for some of his family members. He used to touch them with his right hand, saying: “Allahahuma Rabbin nas adhhabal ba'sa, ashfi wa antashafi, la shifa' illa shifa'uka shifa' la yughadiru saqma " (O Allah! The Sustainer of mankind! Remove the illness, cure the disease. You are the One Who cures. There is no cure except Your cure. Grant (us) a cure that leaves no illness."

(Related by Bukhari and Muslim)


Uthman ibn Abu Al-'As relates that "once he complained of pain in his body to Allah's Messenger (saws). The Messenger of Allah (saws) said: 'Put your hand where you feel pain in your body and say, "Bismillah (in the name of Allah)," and say, "A 'udhu bi 'izzatillah wa qudratihi min sharri ma ajidu wa uhadhiru (I seek refuge in the might of Allah and in His Power from the evil that I find and that I fear)," seven times'." 'Uthman continued: "I did that a few times and Allah removed my pain. I always advised my family and others to do the same."

(Related by Muslim)


Muhammad ibn Salim reported: "Thabit Al-Banani said to me: 'O Muhammad ! When you have any pain, put your hand where you feel pain, then say: Bismallaha'udhu bi'izatillah min shari ma ajidu min waj'i hadha (In the Name of Allah! I seek refuge in Allah's might from the evil of this pain.) “Then remove your hand, and repeat the same for an odd number of times. Then he said to me that Anas ibn Malik had told him that Allah's Messenger (saws) had taught this to him."

May Allah Subhanah relieve you of your pain and grant you good health; and may the Bounteous and Generous Lord reward you immensely for your patience and for putting your trust in the Mercy and Power of the Lord of the Worlds!


Abu Hurairah reports that Allah's Messenger (saws) said: "For every misfortune, illness, anxiety, grief, or hurt that afflicts a Muslim - even the hurt caused by the pricking of a thorn - Allah removes some of his sins."


Ibn Mas'ud said: "I visited the Messenger of Allah (saws) while he had a fever. I exclaimed: 'O Messenger of Allah (saws)! You have a high fever!” He (saws) said: 'My fever is as much as two among you [might have].' I asked: 'Is it because you have a double reward?' He (saws) replied: 'Yes, that is right. No Muslim is afflicted with any hurt, even if it is no more than the pricking of a thorn, but Allah wipes off his sins because of it and his sins fall away from him as leaves fall from a tree'."


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


Your Brother in Islam,
