Showing patience at times of afflictions and seeking the reward from Allah

A: You should be patient with trials and hope for Allah's reward. There are many reports related from the Prophet (peace be upon him) giving glad tidings to the afflicted believer who endures his affliction with patience. It was authentically reported from the Prophet (peace be upon him) who stated, Anyone who strives to be patient, Allah will grant him patience. No one is given a better or a larger gift than patience. (Related by Al-Bukhari and Muslim). He (peace be upon him) also stated, Wonderful are the affairs of a believer; for there is good in every affair of his; this is not the case with anyone else except a believer. If he has an occasion to feel delight, he thanks (Allah), thus there is good for him in it; and if he suffers affliction, he endures patiently, which is good for him. (Related by Muslim). (Part No. 25; Page No. 401) He (peace be upon him) also stated, No misfortune or disease befalls a Muslim, no worry or grief or harm or distress – not even a thorn that pricks him – but Allah will expiate for some of his sins because of that. (Related by Al-Bukhari and Muslim). He (peace be upon him) further stated, A Muslim, male or female, continues to remain under trial in respect of life, property and offspring until he/she faces Allah, the Exalted, with no sin record. (Related by Al-Tirmidhy who classed it as an authentic good Hadith).Along with implementing the means of recovery by taking the medications and the other things, you should increase Du`a' and urgently beseech Allah. We ask Allah to make this affliction bring about goodness and grant you health and safety, as Allah is Ever Near and Responsive.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings of Allah be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family and Companions!
