00:00:28--> 00:01:08

from amongst the many bounties of Allah subhanho wa Taala, one of the greatest bounties the bounty of health. Therefore, Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, on MOOC minakami, you Hiram in a minute, but if a strong believer is better than a weak believer, now, what does this mean? The orlimar mentioned that a strong believer in terms of spirituality is better than a weak believer. According to other few scholars, it means that a strong believer in terms of Hell is better than a weak believer. Why? Because when you are strong physically,

00:01:09--> 00:01:53

it you are able to worship Allah subhanho wa Taala. You can manage to achieve the goals that Allah subhanho wa Taala wants you to achieve. You can stand out of the crowd, you can reach out to the others, you can assist them. That is why it is better to be a strong believer, and from this weekend, understand that it is important for us to preserve health, to take care of our health. And we can understand this from an incident that occurred at the time of Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam where prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was seated with the Sahaba and they were having right right dates together. And among the Sahaba, there was other Allegra, the

00:01:53--> 00:02:38

Allahu taala, who was feeling a little ill, he had fever, and he was also having the date. So prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to him that already, you have fever, you don't have to eat the dates. Why? Because they ate naturally has heat in it, and you have fever. So when you combine the two it will increase your fever. So from this weekend, understand that it is important for us to take care of our health. So Pamela, shake Saudi Rahmatullah Healy, a famous sport, explains in one of his poems through an example, that upon one occasion, there were many people traveling with the king of their time, in a ship, in the ocean. And amongst the people, there

00:02:38--> 00:03:21

was one man who used to complain a lot. He used to complain a lot about the seasickness about the wind, about the waves. And that made the life miserable for the people. So one wise men say to the king, that allowed me to deal with him, allow me to teach him a lesson. So the king said, How are you going to do that? The wise man said, leave it up to me what he did, he took this man and he threw him in the ocean, end to end he tagged along in log, a piece of law, it would, he threw next to him so that he can cling on to it, and he can come back into the ship. So the man came back into the ship, and so panela to the amazement for the next few days, they observed that this man stopped

00:03:21--> 00:04:10

complaining. So the king asked the wise men that how did you achieve this? How did you manage? The wise men replied, that this men never knew and understood, never understood the value that the ship was providing the value of the security that the ship was providing in the depth of the ocean, until I threw him into the ocean. But the moment I threw him into the ocean, he understood the value of the ship. So Shaykh sabi, Rahmatullah Eonni mentions that we humans as well, we don't understand the value of health until we become sick until the saturation start going below 9089 8786 we start coughing a little bit with a headache starts that is when we start to think that you know what, I

00:04:10--> 00:04:46

think so these are the symptoms to some disease that is going on right now. And that is when we start becoming serious. So from this weekend, understand that we have to take care of our health, and it is a teaching of Islam. It is not against the teaching of Islam. It is a tsunami of Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Now I will go through certain advices for the people who fall ill and for the people who get to know about someone who has fallen ill. The first advice is whenever someone has to fall sick, we have to make the free we have to submit ourselves to Allah subhana wa Taala we have to completely return to Allah subhanho wa Taala and we don't have to

00:04:46--> 00:04:59

despair. We don't have to lose hope in the health of Allah subhanho wa Taala we don't have to get frustrated that Why me? Tell shut down Try me because Allah subhanho wa Taala is my backup

00:05:00--> 00:05:35

We shouldn't give up. We shouldn't give up Allah Allah says in the Holy Quran Lai Atma to Milla Mattila in loco matale moon, the only people who leave must believe hope in the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala and in the help of Allah subhanho wa Taala are those people who are straight who lead the right path? We are not from those. We are believers. We believe in Allah subhanho wa Taala look at what are you believe Salaam said when he fell sick? He said aneema Sania Walter Hama Rahimi Allah difficulties afflicted me but you are the Most Merciful. Look at Ibrahim Ali Salam wava Maria,

00:05:36--> 00:06:00

when I fall ill It is Allah who gives me cure. So we should return to Allah subhanho wa Taala The first thing the second thing Allah mentions in the Holy Quran, Amina qurani, ma Hua Shiva whenever we fall sick, Allah says that we have revealed Quran as a cure to you as much as a mercy to you so look for your cure in the Holy Quran we should read a lot of Quran

00:06:01--> 00:06:18

and we should also read Hassan Allahu Allah were killed whenever any Prophet was afflicted with a calamity they used to read Hassan Allahu Allah tala, you are the best disposal of affairs and you are sufficient for us. And we should read work do our

00:06:19--> 00:07:03

job whenever a person is going through anxiety or he feels anxious, he should read what the Our Lady that's our job because when prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was going through anxiety, Allah subhanho wa Taala revealed his verses for now these are spiritual solutions. Firstly, we have to return to Allah. Secondly, we have to read a lot of Quran and it was that I mentioned Thirdly, together with spiritual solution, we have to implement practical solution. A person only implements a spiritual solution and doesn't look at practical solution, he has left the right path, a person only implements practical solution doesn't look at spiritual solution, he has left the right path.

00:07:04--> 00:07:48

So what is the practical solution here, and it is to seek medical guidance to go to the doctors to seek their guidance. Go to the doctors that you trust and get their guidance and get the VA together with to get medication. And that is also as soon as prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam because prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that whenever sickness comes, a person should understand that even cure comes from Allah subhanho wa Taala. The will not Allah has created sickness, Allah Allah has created cure for every sickness. So together with spiritual solution, we have to look for a practical solution. Look at this example. How important it is to implement

00:07:48--> 00:08:31

practical solution. There was this man, he went to the doctor and he said the doctor said, Give me a medication to decrease my tummy pain. My tummy is increasing. Give me a medication for that. I'll let us speak to ourselves honestly, is there a medication for that? Friday afternoon does vice Friday night, t-bone to Coca Cola Saturday morning, there is another plan? Is there a medication to that there is no medication? So the doctor said that there is one solution? And the solution is that you have to move your neck from right to left, left to right, right, left Left, right. So the patient said that how is the neck connected to the tummy? How is my tummy going to decrease because

00:08:31--> 00:09:10

of that? The doctor replied that you have to do that every Friday night when your friends have to invite you for Bri you have to move it from right to left and left to left to right that no I'm not coming for the price. That is the practical solution. So we have to implement them. Now these were some advices for person was to fall sick. inshallah quickly one or two advices for those people who get to know about someone that someone has fallen sick. The first advice whenever you get to know about someone that someone is falling sick, the first thing to do is to go and visit them. It is to go and visit them tomorrow on the day of the AMA Allah tala is going to say, Maurice to follow me I

00:09:10--> 00:09:14

was sick and you didn't visit me. So the person is going to reply.

00:09:16--> 00:09:55

wanted me How am I supposed to visit you? When you are Allah, you are the creator, Allah tala will reply that full on and full on so and so person was sick, that clean of the masjid was sick. That in charge of the masjid was sick that Maulana the doctor that engineer was sick, you didn't go and visit him. So when you didn't visit him, it is as though you didn't visit me. And we understand there are restrictions. When there are restriction restrictions. What are we supposed to what are we supposed to do? What is the Sunnah when prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was sick. And Allah The Allahu taala who came out of his room. So people asked him that Whoa, Ali, how is prophet

00:09:55--> 00:09:59

muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam doing so that Allah The Allahu taala who replied that he's doing better

00:10:00--> 00:10:33

And before so what did the people do? What did the Sahaba do? They asked the people who were in charge who are taking care of the sick person. So if there are restrictions, we don't have to use the excuse that you know there is this disease going on, we can go and visit a person, give a call and ask the relatives inshallah it will make a big difference. So these are the teachings of Islam May Allah subhanho wa Taala protect all us, all of us from sickness and May Allah subhanho wa Taala give God each and every one who's involved in any kind of sickness. I mean, while through that one and 111 have been alarming. three important announcements.
