Tehran, YJC. Quranic studies scholar believes praying for the ill has effects on their rehabilitation.
Mehrdad Veiskarami who holds a doctoral degree in Quranic interpretation in interview with ISNA said "God Almighty has devised various ways for the ill to get well, one of the most prominent of which is payers which is able to remove life’s ups and downs.”

"In the first place, God has advised to pursue each job by its means and through its specific ways, along which they can also use prayers.”

He explained that the first priority to deal with illnesses is to use the established tools and methods and then to add prayers to one’s efforts as a complement.

"Nonetheless illness is a bridge that leads to God. Someone whose heart’s broken and then communicates with God, using names in their prayers such as ‘O, Health-giving’ in their prayers will get better,” Veiskarami stated.

He noted that observing the rites of praying, full-heartedness, and regard for God can effect the way a prayer is granted.

"Prayers inculcate positive things onto the patient. Many patients have gained their health through prayers,” he said.
