Imam Abu Abdillah Ja'far as-Sadiq said that whoever cannot be cured by Surah al-Fatihah, then there is no cure for that person. In the same narration it is written that if this surah is recited 70 times on any part of the body that is aching, the pain will surely go away. In fact, the power of this surah is so great that it is said that if one were to recite it 70 times over a dead body, you should not become surprised if that body starts moving (i.e. comes back to life). Surah al-Fatihah is a cure for physical and also spiritual ailments.

The Hadith is authentic. However, it doesn’t mean that you should not go to the hospital. It highlights the need for spiritual treatment in addition to that other treatment
