An outline is erected for the examination of radiative heat transfer on the magnetohydrodynamic Hiemenz flow over a permeable plate with forced convection. The impacts of viscous dissipation, heat generation and partial slips on the flow field have been elaborated under the variable wall temperature condition of the plate. The transformation of governing nonlinear PDEs into coupled nonlinear ODEs is procured with a suitable choice of similarity variables. Moreover, the solution of these transformed equations is crafted analytically using homotopy analysis method (HAM). The simulation of several illustrating parameters influencing the motion phenomena are acquired and displayed through graphs. Simultaneously, numerical computations retrieved from the prevailing pattern approve tremendous association with the outcomes of existing literature.
