Treating cancer with the Qur’aan

Dear Brothers & Sisters,
As-Salaamu-Alaikum 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:
Can treating sickness with the Qur’aan heal physical diseases such as cancer as it can heal spiritual diseases such as al-‘ayn (the evil eye) or al-mass (being touched by Shaytaan, i.e., madness), etc? Is there any evidence for that? May Allaah reward you with good.

Praise be to Allaah.

In the Qur’aan and du’aa’ there may be healing for all ills, by Allaah’s leave. There is a great deal of evidence for that, for example Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning):

“Say: ‘It is for those who believe, a guide and a healing’”

[Fussilat 41:44]

“And We send down of the Qur’aan that which is a healing and a mercy to those who believe”

[al-Israa’ 17:82] 

The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him), when he was suffering from some ailment, would recite into his hands when going to sleep, “Qul Huwa Allaahu Ahad” and al-Mi’wadhatayn [i.e., the last three soorahs of the Qur’aan], three times, each time wiping as much of his body as he could, starting with his head and face and chest. He did this every time he went to sleep, as was reported in the saheeh hadeeth narrated from ‘Aa’ishah (may Allaah be pleased with her).

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.
