Sickness A Mercy from Allah

Trials and tribulations in islam

Source: everymuslim.co.za

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.

On September 12, 2014, Shaykh Hamza Yusuf, a prominent American Muslim scholar, gave a Friday sermon on ISIS. People are clearly interested in what Shaykh Hamza has to say regarding ISIS; the sermon has been viewed on YouTube more than 190,000 times, with more than 1,100 positive and negative comments, in the past month.

Shaykh Hamza made several interesting points in his sermon. (My follow-up questions appear in italics. Please forgive the tough questions. I don’t mean any disrespect to Shaykh Hamza. I realize that he didn’t have time to address all these issues in one sermon. But such questions have to be answered by our scholars so that laypeople like me can understand what is going on in the world around us.)

In Sickness and In Health

By: Izza Atiqa

One of the things I love most about my job is the people that I get to meet. I just started work a few months ago, and in the course of my day-to-day routine, I have met some people to whom my heart gravitates, just for the beauty of the person that they are. During my first few weeks of work, I met a Muslim brother who was suffering from multiple sclerosis. Despite it being a difficult condition to live with, he was independent, positive, and especially cheerful during the short 30-minute consult my colleague and I had with him. That day, he had intermittent muscle spasms that interrupted the treatment we were giving him, yet it did not disturb his calm and collected demeanor. I remember he was the first patient to say, “Jazak Allahu Khayran (may God reward you),” and I was so delighted at hearing someone make that simple du`a’ (supplication) for me.

Islam is the nature way and it fits perfectly with the heart, mind, body and soul

Islam is the nature way and it fits perfectly with the heart, mind, body and soul. Islam is free of all superstitions, black magic, which-craft, strange incantations and all that other weird and crazy stuff that people do.

The last and final messenger sent to mankind has sad that “Verily spells, talismans and charms are shrik” [Abu Dawood and Musnad Ahmad]

It’s sad to see many people have fallen into this out of ignorance and a lack of knowledge but there is always hope in ISLAM, so if you have gotten caught up into this please turn to Allah (God) and seek forgiveness and only his protection, and here is a wonderful DUA that you can start reading inshaAllah.

“Remove the suffering O’ Lord of mankind, and heal it perfectly, as you are the True healer. There is no cure Except Your cure, a cure which is not followed by sickness! ” Prophet Muhammad (Abu Dawud)

By: Dr Suad

This past weekend an unarmed African American teenager, Mike Brown, was shot and killed by the police in Ferguson, MO. Brown’s death comes just weeks after the NYPD killed Eric Garner, an unarmed black father. We do not see these as isolated incidents but as evidence of the continuing sickness of white supremacy that has plagued this country since its inception. These recent events are an extension of the state violence that targeted the indigenous peoples of the Americas and enslaved Africans. We see these deaths as part of the systemic project of state violence at work not only in the past but in racist policies and attacks against immigrants domestically and in the conquest and war mongering of US imperial policy abroad. We believe black life matters. We believe all life matters. We condemn all forms of police brutality and state violence perpetrated by our government in the strongest terms possible.

Evil Eye according to Islam

evil-eye

Introduction of Evil Eye

The evil eye is the name for a sickness or misfortune transmitted, usually with or without intention, by someone who is envious, jealous, and covetous or even a pious person from among man or jinn. MashAllah, it could affect children, adults, livestock, and any kind of materialistic items, and the most vulnerable are the very young, the wealthy and the beautiful. To cast out an evil eye its not necessary to see the victim, the evil-eye can be transmitted even just by visualizing or imagining or even with a very limited description of the target person for example a person can cast-out an evil eye even on himself just by imagining or while look at himself in the mirror or even a blind person can cast out an evil eye just by visualizing the target person or a mother could herself un- intentionally cast out a evil eye on her child..etc.

Our Prophet[SAW] has therefore advised us to recite ‘MashaAllah’, to prevent the casting-out an evil eye, therefore one should say ‘MashaAllah’ when praising or looking at anyone or any thing with excitement, in-order to avoid casting an evil eye to them.
