khak e shifa

According to another tradition if one has to eat Khaak-e-Shifa one should first kiss it then hold it to one’s eyes and should not take more than a grain of gram a very small quantity much less than a pinch. For eating excess of Khaak-e-Shifa is like eating the meat and blood of the holy descendant (Ahlul Bait) of the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.a.). And when one picks it up from the resting place of Imam Husain’s (a.s.) one should recite the following Dua;

اَللّٰهُمَّ إِنِّي أَسْأَلُكَ بِحَقِّ الْمَلَكِ الَّذِي قَبَضَهَا وَ أَسْأَلُكَ بِحَقِّ النَّبِيِّ الَّذِيْ خَزَنَهَا وَ أَسْأَلُكَ بِحَقِّ الْوَصِيِّ الَّذِيْ حَلَّ فِيْهَا أَنْ تُصَلِّيَ عَلٰى مُحَمَّدٍ وَ آلِ مُحَمَّدٍ وَ أَنْ تَجْعَلَهَا لِيْ شِفَاءً مِنْ كُلِّ دَاءٍ وَ أَمَاناً مِنْ كُلِّ خَوْفٍ وَ حِفْظاً مِنْ كُلِّ سُوْ ءٍ

Translation:

O Allah I bind Thee by that angel who had lifted a handful clay; by the prophet who had preserved it in the bottle, by the vice-regent who lies buried under it and pray Thee to shower thy blessing on Mohammed and Aale Mohammad and make this pure clay a cure for all diseases, a shield against all fears, and a safeguard against all curses.

After that Khaak-e-Shifa should, be tied in a cloth and over it should be recited Surah Inna Anzalanaa.
