Quran has been defined as the healer or that which heals. We have read in our tradition that it can cure physical diseases but can we use the same Quran to treat mental illness as well?
When we look into sunnah we learn Quran heals us and it should be recited for the illness of the body and the illness of the mind. Because Allah defines it as a “Shifa”.
