Is there a CURE for every disease as we’ve been promised in many hadith? If the answer is yes, then why, we the Muslims, have every chronic disease, are debilitated from these diseases, and ultimately, they are the cause of many of our demise? I know, as a Muslimah many who will read this will be thinking in their trained Islamic mind’s, sister Karimah, a’uthubillahi how can you ask such a question, this is the decree of Allah. I have and will beg to differ with anyone who thinks such a way. I say we have been created on the best of structure and without flaw. We were not designed by the greatest designer in the universe to have our CELLS mutate, degenerate, autoimmune (self-destruct) to the point of disabilities and even death. No, I can not accept this because there are too many verses in the Quran where our Lord tells us of His perfection in his creation. Allow me to share one hadith that helps us to understand what our Lord has written for us:
أَيُّهَا النَّاسُ إِنَّ اللَّهَ طَيِّبٌ لَا يَقْبَلُ إِلَّا طَيِّبًا وَإِنَّ اللَّهَ أَمَرَ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ بِمَا أَمَرَ بِهِ الْمُرْسَلِينَ فَقَالَ يَا أَيُّهَا الرُّسُلُ كُلُوا مِنْ الطَّيِّبَاتِ وَاعْمَلُوا صَالِحًا إِنِّي بِمَا تَعْمَلُونَ عَلِيمٌ وَقَالَ يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا كُلُوا مِنْ طَيِّبَاتِ مَا رَزَقْنَاكُمْ ثُمَّ ذَكَرَ الرَّجُلَ يُطِيلُ السَّفَرَ أَشْعَثَ أَغْبَرَ يَمُدُّ يَدَيْهِ إِلَى السَّمَاءِ يَا رَبِّ يَا رَبِّ وَمَطْعَمُهُ حَرَامٌ وَمَشْرَبُهُ حَرَامٌ وَمَلْبَسُهُ حَرَامٌ وَغُذِيَ بِالْحَرَامِ فَأَنَّى يُسْتَجَابُ لِذَلِكَ
O people, Allah is pure and He accepts only what is pure. Verily, Allah has commanded the believers as He commanded His messengers. Allah said: O messengers, eat from pure things and act righteously, for I know what you do. (23:51) And Allah said: O you who believe, eat from pure things We have provided for you. (2:172) Then, the Prophet mentioned a man who traveled far, becoming disheveled and dusty and he raises his hands to the sky, saying, “O Lord! O Lord!” while his food is unlawful, his drink is unlawful, his clothing is unlawful, and he is nourished by the unlawful, so how can he be answered? Source: Ṣaḥīḥ Muslim 1015, Grade: Sahih
How many times have you read or recited this hadith but never made a connection with the content of this hadith and the cure that has been at our very finger tips since the time our beloved Prophet (salallahu alayhi was salaam) was here on earth, probably never. This may be your first time ever hearing someone equate this hadith with sicknesses and health. Here it is clearly stated that Allah s.w.t. is PURE and He only accepts that which is PURE. He has ordered the messengers as well as the believers to eat only that which is PURE. Then our Prophet (s.a.w.s.) tells us of a man who supplicates to his Lord, but his FOOD is haram, his DRINK is haram, his CLOTHING is haram and is body is being NOURISHED with Haram, how can he be answered. Brothers and Sisters this is the case we’ve found ourselves in today. We are like the disheveled man begging Allah s.w.t. for a cure while we are eating, drinking and nourishing our bodies with poisonous toxic waste that we’ve call food. Even with our disobedience Allah s.w.t. has not refused to guide and assist us. It is we who’ve stopped the help. The ending of the hadith, we are given a question to ponder and reflect on.
فَأَنَّى يُسْتَجَابُ لِذَلِكَ
so how can he be answered?
This question is in the passive voice, implying that the answering of the supplication is being prevented rather than being rejected. Allah s.w.t. has answered our request to him the problem is we have not answered him. Most of us do not even know what he’s requested of us, therefore we cannot believe nor receive his guidance.
وَإِذَا سَأَلَكَ عِبَادِي عَنِّي فَإِنِّي قَرِيبٌ أُجِيبُ دَعْوَةَ الدَّاعِ إِذَا دَعَانِ فَلْيَسْتَجِيبُواْ لِي وَلْيُؤْمِنُواْ بِي لَعَلَّهُمْ يَرْشُدُونَ
“And when My servants ask thee about Me - Definitely, I am near; I answer the call of him who calls, whenever he calls upon Me: let them, then, respond to Me, and believe in Me, so that they might be guiding rightly.” 2:186
Allah s.w.t. has answered us. He’s given us the cure. It is we who’ve prevented ourselves from receiving this cure due to our deviation from the pure straight way. We’ve chosen to follow the footsteps and progressions of our enemy whose goal is to put us all in the wrong and complete lost.
يَا أَيُّهَا النَّاسُ كُلُواْ مِمَّا فِي الأَرْضِ حَلاَلاً طَيِّباً وَلاَ تَتَّبِعُواْ خُطُوَاتِ الشَّيْطَانِ إِنَّهُ لَكُمْ عَدُوٌّ مُّبِينٌ
“O MANKIND! Eat of what is lawfully pure on earth, and follow not Satan's progression: for, verily, he is your open Enemy!” 2:168
IHOPE has been taking this work around the globe and now from state to state trying to improve and benefit the lives of so many dealing with chronic illnesses. Recently we spent seven weeks in Houston, Texas with our beloved Imam Qasim Ahmed, here is a short video I was honored to have made with him. May Allah s.w.t give him a complete recovery from His fight with Brain Cancer. Read also a powerful Statement by the Imam in reference to his health and care.
