  1. Jazakallah khair for this very beneficial post! It is truly inspirational that you are able to think positively during such difficult circumstances!

  2. MashaAllah wa jazakumullahu khairan for this! Alhamdulilah much needed, many of us are healthy and rarely think that we’ll ever become so ill, until when it does, we don’t know what to make of it. Really appreciated as i can relate to this in soo many ways

    • That’s very true, Muna, we think we’re somehow immune–especially those of us who are young! Alhamdulillah that you found it beneficial :)

  3. Salam Dina, once I saw your name, I knew that this is a must-read!

    I ask Allaah The Supreme, Lord of the magnificent throne to cure you.

  4. Assalamu alaykum,

    Can ProductiveMuslim kindly make this Print-Friendly please…I’d love to share this one certain loved ones who aren’t very tech-savvy, and prints would be great motivator in sha Allah.
    BarakAllah feeki

  5. Maasha Allah nice article. May I add please also to trust alternative medicine while still taking doctor’s prescribed drugs. There are loads of benefits that Allah SWT has put in natural medicines which can alleviate our sufferings and even cure us.

    • Good point, Amina! There are a lot of healing benefits in natural products, like honey whose shifa’a power was mentioned in the Qur’an. However, if you think of it, modern-day drugs are also actually inspired by/made from human antibodies, microorganisms, etc. :)

  6. very nice.most of us feel very bad when we facing such difficulties&illness.your article helps us to confront such situations bravely,and with patience. jasakkallh.

  7. Alsalam Alaykum,

  9. Salam Dina! Amazing article… You know my grandmother was on dialysis for about 11 months & i used to go with her to her dialysis sessions because she didnot like going alone & i used to do my assignments while there & prepare for quizes :) but i never thought of ALL this amazing stuff mentioned here!
    I really do pray to Allah that He may grant you complete health! Oh & kindly make dua for my grandmother that may Allah grant her the highest of the place in Jannah… Ameen

  10. jazakom Allah khayran Dina..I ask Allah to grant you wellness and cure ;HE SWT has cure for every disease..

    ma sha’ Allah ur thoughts are very organized…I just wanted to add a lesson I learnt by hard though a hardship; one should trust Allah and have no doubt that He SWT wants us the very best;we should thus search and even strive to find the good side in every hardship;like you here ma sha’ Allah;instead of crying ur luck haing such problem u make the most out of ur time;and here Allah SWT made u a cause for many to b better patients or advisors :)

    May that make ur good deeds balance heavier…ameen

  11. MasahAllah! A brilliant article and a reminder for me. It gives another slant on looking at ways of healing ones self by following the commands of ALLAH SWT. Jazakillah khair for drawing our attention to this beautiful piece.

  12. Assalamualaikum.
    Your words have truly inspired me. Thank you very much.
    May Allah keep you safe and healthy.
