Get Well Soon

Since the past week, I have not been well at all. I've been to the Accident & Emergency and from their I got admitted into Hospital. I stayed there a couple of nights of 'NBM' (Nil By Mouth) where I was on drips and nothing to eat. The pain was bad and the needles that were injected me at short intervals were worse.

Nevertheless, it is the mercy of Allah that He gives sickness to mankind to make them ponder, realise and accept their sins; it is His way of forgiving people in this world so that they do not have to suffer the pain in the hereafter.

During my visit to the hospital I was under 'close watch' and it was reassuring in a sense that I knew that if I had any problems there would be there someone looking over me. And as I was in a ward where the patients were those on whom a constant watch was kept on, I realised that there were people far worse off than me.

Even at the moment, I can remember their faces, their lost look; at visiting times some of them never even had a visitor throughout the while visiting time whereas my bed was constant with visitors and even that there was a limitation to 'two per bed', meaning a queue in the day room to visit.

POINT

Sickness if from Allah, maybe He sometimes even gives us physical pain to make us realise that there may also be another sickness towards which we are not turning our attention. If sickness omits the sins of man then surely it should make us realise that we need to pay a great deal of attention to our spiritual side also. We are quick and fast to rush to Accident & Emergency when we have bodily pain but do we even run to our spiritual doctor when we miss our Fajr (morning) prayer?

Similarly, just as the constant watch from the doctors and nurses in the ward gives us that sense of security and ease of mind, similarly, if we created the right link with Allah then we would be content with knowing that He is watching us all the time and will be there whenever we need Him.

I thank Allah for the family He has given us, for the facilities He provides for us and for all the ease of pain that comes from Him. I thank Him for all that He has done for us, whether me realise it or not.

May He forgive us, rid us of any illnesses, physical, mental and spiritual. May His constant remembrance and presence be with us all day. Aameen.

There will be no posts on this blog for a short while until I recover. Please make special Duaa for me.

Salaam Brother - I don't know you personaly, however I wish you a speed recovery incha'allah.

Because we are humans - not machines - it's normal to feel pain in hard times, however as Muslims, we must always thank ALLAH (swt) for everything. ALLAH (swt) never make destiny aganist people; rather HE (swt) make destinty to examin our faith in order to increase our good deeds. That's why should thank ALLAH (swt) in hard times before Good times.

Anyway again, I wish you speed recovery, and you also don't forget all Muslims and belivers from your supplication. May ALLAH (swt) accept from us, and forgive all of us. Ameen

Salam,
Hicham
