The Islamic teaching with regards to illness

The Islamic teaching with regards to illness

Indeed, illness is great blessing from Allah and its benefits are innumerable. Even though man feels pain due to his illness, in reality it is a means of peace and comfort. The illness is actually an excellent way of healing the spiritual illnesses. It is these spiritual illnesses that should be considered as the destructive illnesses. It is very clear that however much unaware a man is, when he is inflicted with an illnesses, diseases or with any sort pain, he starts to remember his Creator and turns to him though repentance and forgiveness.

However, the state of the great pious people is that they actually welcome wholeheartedly any sort of pain, just as they welcome any sort of peace  and comfort. Like a Persian poet once said:

“Whatever comes from the beloved, it is always for our betterment.”

However, we who spiritually weak, should at remain patient when afflicted with any illness or disease and have a firm belief that Allah shall remove us from this pain and discomfort. We should not lose the reward that was to be earned by being impatient and bewailing. Everyone knows that a calamity cannot be removed by being impatient and indeed to be deprived of the great blessings and rewards is another calamity in itself in addition to the initial one!

Whenever they become ill or a calamity befalls them, many ignorant people start to utter improper words, some which in fact takes them out of the folds of Islam. Allah forbid! They utter things such as ‘He is the Oppressor!’ Such people are those as regards whom the Quran has stated, “They are in loss in this world and the hereafter.”

Now We shall cite a few benefits of being inflicted with illnesses through the light of the Ahadith so that our readers may read them attentively and act upon them. May Allah grant us all guidance…Ameen

Hadith: Hazat Abdullah bin Mas’ud Radiallahu Anhu reported that The Messenger of Allah Sallalaahu Alahi wasallam has said, “Whatever pain is inflicted on a Muslim, whether it be in the form of an illness or something else, then Allah removes the sins from him just as the leaves fall from a tree.”[Bukhari]

The reward for Answering the Azaan

The reward for Answering the Azaan

Hadith: The Prophet Muhammad Sallal Laahu Alaii Wasallam addressed an audience of women saying, “O women! When you hear Bilal giving the Azan and the Iqaamah, then repeat what he is saying because Allah The Most Exalted will grant you a hundred thousand rewards for each word, elevate your status by a thousand ranks and will forgive you a thousand of your sins.” The Women asked, “This is for the women, what about the men? The Prophet Sallal Laahu Alahi Wasallam replied, “For the men it (the reward) is doubled.” [ibne Asakir]

It is worth nothing, that in the Azaan of the Fajr Salaah thereare seventeen words and in Azaan of remaining Salaah there are fifteen words. Thus, if a woman answers the Azaan for Fajr, she will attain 17,00,000 rewards, her status will be raised by 17,000 ranks and 17,000 of her sins will be forgiven. If she answers the Azaan of the remaining four Salaah, then she will reap 60,00,000 rewards, her status will be raised by 60,000 ranks and 60,000 of her sins will be forgiven

If she has answered the Azaan for all the five prayers then she will gain 77,00,000 rewards  her status will be raised by 77,000 ranks and 77,000 of her sins will be forgiven.

For men the reward is doubled. Meaning the men will be granted 1,54,00,000 rewards, their status will be raised by 1,54,000 of their sins will be forgiven. Therefore, if a woman answers the Azaan and Iqaamah for one Salaah for one Salaah then she will attain 85,00,000 rewards, her status will be raised by 85,000 ranks and an equal number of sins will be forgiven.

As for men, they will attain 1,70,00,000 rewards, their status will be raised by 1,70,000 ranks and equal number of sins will be forgiven.

Now adding the reward for answering both the Azaan and the Iqaamah for women is 1,62,00,000 along with her status being increased by 1,62,00,000 times and an equal number of sins being forgiven. As for men, the reward for answering  the Azaan and the Iqaamah is 3,24,00,000 with an increase in status of 3,24,00,000 times and an equal number of sins being forgiven.

Glorify be to Allah! This is only the reward for answering the Azaan in one day, which requires no money to be spent, nor any effort. If a believer makes a habit of this, then there is no end to the rewards he would gain.

However, our fellow Muslim brothers nowadays do not take any interest to learn and acquire the correct Islamic Knowledge and hence, do not gain the benefit of such rewards. In the present day and age, because women are not Allowed to go to the Masjid to Prevent corruption, they should answer the Azaan at home and if they live in close proximity (such that they can hear the Azaan) then they should also answer the Iqaamah
