In A‘māl e Qur’ān of Hazrat Mawlānā Ashraf ‘Alī Thānawī, he extracts remedies and solutions from the Holy Qur’ān for a wide variety of problems. The book is a collection of verses of the Qur’ān, along with procedures for their application, which Mawlānā found to be effective in producing certain results by the will of Allāh Ta‘ālā.
The Qur’ān contains shifā’. Allāh Ta‘ālā says:
وننزل من القرآن ما هو شفاء ورحمة للمؤمنين
“And We send down from the Qur’ān that which is a remedy and mercy for the believers.” (Qur’ān, 17:82)
