Afflicted with any illness
If you are afflicted with any illness, it can be difficult for you and the family, read the saying of prophet Muhammad may peace be upon him.
Sayyidina Anas Radhiyallahu Anhu reports that, Sayyidina Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam said : ” If a Muslim is afflicted with a bodily affliction (illness etc), it is said to the angel( who records his pious deeds), continue recording the pious deeds he committed in his state of good health. If Allah grant him recuperation, he will cleanse him. If Allah grant him death, he will forgive and have mercy on him.” Sharhus Sunnah, Mishkaat.
Narrated ‘Aisha: (the wife of the Prophet) Allah’s Apostle said, “No calamity befalls a Muslim but that Allah expiates some of his sins because of it, even though it were the prick he receives from a thorn.” Sahih Bukhari 554
Narrated ‘Abdullah: I visited the Prophet during his ailments and he was suffering from a high fever. I said, “You have a high fever. Is it because you will have a double reward for it?” He said, “Yes, for no Muslim is afflicted with any harm but that Allah will remove his sins as the leaves of a tree fall down. Sahih Bukhari 550
The readers and my beloved mother’s and sister’s, no matter what illness you have, let us try to not think of it in a negative way.
