Can You Really Be Cured of Your “Incurable” Ailment?

You may be thinking that many ailments are Incurable, and you are stuck with it for the rest of your life. Many people who came in to our natural healing practice tell me that they have been to their doctors for their ailments, and the doctor had pronounced their ailment as incurable and all they can do is to give some medical drugs to ease the pain, but they cannot cure it. Is that really true?

In our Islamic faith, we are told the opposite. As reported by Bukhari and Muslim, the Prophet (saw) had said,  “Allah has not sent down a disease, except that He had also sent down its Cure.”

Is recovery from all kinds of ailments possible? Can you recover from ailments that the medical industry has labeled as Incurable, and has vehemently declared that your ailment cannot be cured, no matter what? On the other hand, the Prophet (saw) said, “Allah has not sent down a disease, except that He had also sent down its Cure.” It is up to us to seek out the right cure for our ailments, and achieve relief and happiness.

Seeking Out The Cure For Your Ailment
In one narration, the Prophet (saw) had said, “Allah has not sent down a disease except that He sent down its Cure; whoever knows it (the cure), knows it, and whoever is unaware of it (the cure), he is unaware of it, while those who are ignorant of it are unaware of it.” [Al-Nasaii, Ibn Majah, Al-Hakim and Ibn Hibban].

It is narrated in the Masnad (by Imam Ahmad) and the Sunan of Al-Tirmizy and Ibn Majah) that Abu Khuzamah said: “I said, ‘O Messenger of Allah, the Ruqyah (divine remedies – Islamic supplication formula) that we use, the medicine we take and the prevention we seek, does all this change Allah’s appointed destiny? The Prophet (saw) said, ‘They are in fact a part of Allah’s appointed destiny.”

These hadiths encourage people to seek out and take the appropriate steps to healing their ailment. This action does not contradict dependence on Allah. Just as one satisfying his hunger, thirst or reacts to being hot or cold does not contradict the dependence on Allah.

Jewish tradition states that Prophet Ibrahim (as) once asked Allah, “O my Lord! Where does the disease come from?” He said, ‘From Me’. Prophet Ibrahim asked, “Where does the cure come from? He said, “From Me”. Prophet Ibrahim said, “What is the role of the healer then?” He said, “A man in whose hands I send the cure.”

The Prophet’s statement that there is a cure for every illness should strengthen the resolve of every sick person to seek out the cure for his/her ailment.
