Sickness A Mercy from Allah

Trials and tribulations in islam


By: Professor Noor Ahmed Noor

Sickness can be very disturbing, but if viewed in the light of the teachings and the practical example of our Nabi(Sallallaahu alaiyhi wassallam), then it will become easier to cope with even the agony of pain. Furthermore, if these teachings are practised, our illnesses will become a means for us to earn great rewards in the Aakhirah.

This concise booklet is based on the Urdu book, Maraz bhi Allah ki rahmat he by Professor Noor Ahmad Noor of Pakistan. It provides a better understanding of sickness and explains how every Muslim should view sicknesses and disease in a positive light. It deals briefly with some aspects relating to sickness like glad tidings for the sick; virtues and etiquette for visiting the sick; some Masnoon duas for cure; the salaah of the sick; hope in Allah Ta’ala and ends with a few anecdotes about the last moments of some Awliyaa (Friends) of Allah.

May Allah Ta’ala accept this humble effort of Daaru- Nashril Islaamiyyah who has translated and compiled this booklet into English. Ameen.

Sacrifice and inner happiness: a story

Relaxing in the lounge Sunday morning my wife called, ‘How long will you be with that newspaper? Will you come here and make your darling son eat his breakfast?’.

I tossed the paper away and rushed to the scene. My only son Faizaan looked frightened. Tears were welling up in his eyes. In front of him was a bowl filled to its brim with cereal containing the much needed vitamins needed by Faizaan after his month long illness. Faizaan was a pleasant child, quite intelligent for his age. He has just turned nine. He particularly detested the vitamin fortified cereal. My mother and my wife are traditional and believe firmly in the benefits of the cereal.

The Delight of Selflessness



By: Abu Muhammad Yusuf

Sacrifice is part of nature. The excruciating pain a mother endures patiently at childbirth, the years a teacher spends in educating children, the medical personal who attend to accident scenes in the dead of night, the police who patrol the streets during odd times and extreme weather, the Mujahideen who protect the borders of Islam, the patience of innocent civilians under oppressive regimes are just but a few examples of sacrifices for humanity.

Brain Damage Image

  1. No Breakfast People who do not take breakfast are going to have a lower blood sugar level. This leads to an insufficient supply of nutrients to the brain causing brain degeneration.
  2. Overeating It causes hardening of the brain arteries, leading to a decrease in mental power.
  3. Smoking It causes multiple brain shrinkage and may lead to Alzheimer disease.
  4. High Sugar consumption Too much sugar will interrupt the absorption of proteins and nutrients causing malnutrition and may interfere with brain development.
  5. Air Pollution The brain is the largest oxygen consumer in our body. Inhaling polluted air decreases the supply of oxygen to the brain, bringing about a decrease in brain efficiency.
  6. Sleep Deprivation Sleep allows our brain to rest. Long term deprivation from sleep will accelerate the death of brain cells.
  7. Head covered while sleeping Sleeping with the head covered increases the concentration of carbon dioxide and decrease concentration of oxygen that may lead to brain damaging effects.
