Quoted from the book of Yibb al-A’immah (Medicine of the Imams), Jabir al-Ju’fi reported Imam Muhammad al-Baqir (a.s.) as saying:

I was present with al-Husayn ibn Ali(a.s.) when a man from the descendants of Umayyah, yet he was loyalist to us, came to him and said, “O son of Allah’s Messenger, I could hardly come to you walking because of a pain from which I am suffering in my leg.”

The Imam (a.s.) asked, “How are you turned back from the supplicatory amulet of al-Hasan ibn Ali(a.s.)?”

“What is that, son of Allah’s Messenger?” asked the man.

The Imam (a.s.) explained, “You may recite the first seven verses of Surah al-Fath.”

Afterwards, the man said, “As I had carried out this direction, I felt no pain at all.”

It is also reported that one who suffers from knee pains may say the following supplicatory prayer after the ritual prayers:

يا اَجْوَدَ مَنْ اَعْطى يا خَيْرَ مَنْ سُئِلَ وَ يا اَرْحَمَ مَنِ اسْتُرْحِمَ اِرْحَمْ ضَعْفى وَ قِلَّةَ حيلَتى وَ اَعْفِنى مِنْ وَجَعى

For those suffering from pains in the legs, it is reportedly recommended to recite the following holy verse seven times over the legs:

وَاتْلُ ما اُوحِىَ اِلَيْكَ مِنْ كِتابِ رَبِّكَ لا مُبَدِّلَ لِكَلِماتِهِ وَ لَنْ تَجِدَ مِنْ دُونِهِ مُلْتَحَداً
