You are encouraged to ask Allah for anything you want as long as what you’re asking for is not haram. We will cover specific duas you can ask Allah for good health and inshallah, to live a longer life.
The first Dua:
Abdur Rahman ibn Abu Bakrah said that he told his father: O my father! I hear you supplicating every morning: “O Allah! Grant me health in my body. O Allah! Grant me good hearing. O Allah! Grant me good eyesight. There is no god but Thou.” Repeat them three times in the morning and three times in the evening.
Second Dua You Can Recite For Visiting A Sick Person:
Transliteration: ‘As’alullaahal-‘Adheema Rabbal-‘Arshil-‘Adheemi ‘an yashfiyaka.
Translation: I ask Almighty Allah , Lord of the Magnificent Throne, to make you well. (Recite seven times in Arabic)
Third Dua For Good Health (Relief from all types of pain):
“Place your hand at the place where you feel pain in your body and say, ‘Bismillah’ (in the name of Allah) three times
Next, recite seven times while wiping the area of pain, ‘A’udhu billahi wa qudratihi min sharri ma ajidu wa uhadhiru‘
The English Translation – I seek refuge with Allah and with His Power from the evil (pain) that I find and that I fear).”

Islamic Tips For Good Health
In Islam having good physical health is a core belief.
Muslims believe that this body we are given is not really ours to keep. We will return it to Allah one day and be held responsible for what we made it do.
The ruling is very simple and we already know the answers. But sometimes we just need a reminder, anything that is harmful or does not spread good is forbidden.
Cigarettes, Tabaccoo, Alcohol, and Pork is forbidden for this exact reason.
And spend in the way of Allah and do not throw (yourselves) with your (own) hands into destruction (by refraining). And do good; indeed, Allah loves the doers of good.Quran 2:195
Just remember these three words as a rule of thumb whenever you do something, Harm is Haram.
“O you who have believed, do not consume one another’s wealth unjustly but only [in lawful] business by mutual consent. And do not kill yourselves [or one another]. Indeed, Allah is to you ever Merciful.” (Holy Quran 4:29)
The harm does not always have to be self-inflicted.
The last remark I would like to make is, you are capable of change.
If you don’t like the way things are you can begin the process of change. Today can be the day you go from being unhealthy to healthy.
It doesn’t have to be like how it’s always been. But if you keep doing the same things how can you expect different results.
Make it a practice to exercise regularly. The length of the exercise does not matter.
For everyone this will be different, if 5 minutes is challenging and that’s all you can do, perfect just make sure to do the 5 minutes.
What will happen if you do 5 minutes every day, eventually it will be 6, 7, 10, up to 30 minutes in a short period of time.
A way to make this easy to do is have a set time you do this. For example, right after I wake up and eat breakfast. After I come home from work 5 minutes before I do anything else.
Maintain a healthy weight. Many diseases are caused by bad food choices combined over a period of time. Be careful what you eat.
Don’t smoke. This one is obvious and needs no further explanation.
Eat healthy foods. Fruits, yogurt (has probiotics good for a healthy gut), and vegetables. Besides eating healthy food, limit the bad food choices. Don’t eat too much processed sugars. If you have diabetes limit the amount of foods that have carbohydrates. Read the label before you eat something to help you make better choices.
Eating once in a while is fine, eating cake everyday is a problem. Same goes for eating fast food. You can live a rich and dynamic life with bad inputs. Be cautious of what you put into your body, it’s the fuel that gives you energy.
Get screening tests, don’t wait too long to visit doctor. After a certain age we should have scheduled check ups. Cancer if caught early can greatly increase chance for survival and living a long life.
Breast Cancer is one of the most common cancers in women, this can be caught early on and treated. Men are more prone for Colon Cancer after age 45 and this too can be caught diagnosed easily and treated.
