The reason why Allah subhanho wa Taala allows a believer to go through certain stages at times, is in order for us to realize that the mistake was right at the beginning.
The minute we fall ill the minute calamity strikes, the first thing we need to do is turn to Allah.
He cannot Budo a camera staring so many times a day we repeat you alone, we worship you alone, we ask for help. I will worship Allah alone and I will ask for Allah for help. And Allah subhanho wa Taala will then facilitate for me, Allah subhanho wa Taala will then facilitate for me and grant me the ability to do that which is correct to do that which is filled with blessing from every angle.
There is no point in being cured medically and physically, when spiritually we are in we are sick, when religiously we are far away from Allah subhanho wa Taala. So mankind due to his weakness starts off on the wrong side, by relying primarily upon the medication or the doctor or whoever else it may be or himself or his expertise, or whatever he's read or knows and nowadays, even on Google Subhana Allah, so you find Allah is removed from the equation. And this is where we falter. The difference between a believer and one who does not believe is that the believer primarily turns to Allah, before everything we say. Bismillah we are taught that when you leave the house, you say Bismillahi
R will come to Allah In the name of Allah, I lay my trust in Allah, and we would lock the door. Thereafter, whatever you're doing, if it is anything of importance, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, could Lama Lin lamea that fee be Bismillahi for Hua Akbar, anything that you're going to do if you haven't started it with Bismillah, it is going to be cut, chopped, chopped means the blessing of it, the reward of it, the goodness of it, even if physically you achieve some form of success, because you remove the love from the equation. That was the mistake you made and therefore the blessing will be snatched away. The goodness is snatched away.
