Random Quote: Charity: The Prophet said: 'Charity (sadaqah) is due upon every joint of a person on every day that the sun rises. Administering justice between two people is an act of charity; and to help a man concerning his riding beast by helping him on to it or lifting his luggage on to it is an act of charity; a good word is charity; and every step which you take to prayer is charity; and removing that which is harmful from the road is charity.' (Sahîh Bukhârî)

I have Christian friends. Certainly i ask the almighty to guide them but is it halal to pray for them if they are sick? Particularly when they know well i am calling them to the way of Islam; On Around The World forum a Christian lady co-admin use as signature "O Allah remove the hardship, O Lord of mankind, grant cure for You are the Healer. There is no cure but from You, a cure which leaves no illness behind."

Dont forget me in your dua salaam.

Imam Al-Bukhari reports that Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him) used to say this du`aa' (Arabic for: supplication) for people who are sick, whether he was visiting the sick person or the person was brought to him.

Adh-hibi al-ba’sa, Rabba an-nas, ishfi wa anta ash-shafi, la shifaa’ illa shifa’uka, shifa’an la yughadiru saqaman (Arabic for: Remove the affliction, O Lord of Humankind, and send down cure and healing, for no one can cure but You; so cure in such a way that no trace of illness is left).

The hadith does not distinguish between a Muslim and a non-Muslim. And since we know from other authentic hadiths that the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) visited some non-Muslims who were sick (including a Jewish boy, as Al-Bukhari himself reports), we suppose he made the same du`aa' for them

as salaamu alaykum,

As far as I know you can make duaa for anyone - Muslim and non - for their health and well-being, etc, until the person passes away.  It is only after the person passes away that there are some restrictions that come into play.

A nice, well-written book you may want to check out is Dua: Weapon of the Believer by Sh. Yasir Qadhi.  While there are a few things in it that I cannot completely agree with, it's a very good book and covers a lot of issues and questions related to dua and I would recommend it.

salaam,
