Alhamdulilah, Praise be to Allah the Lord of the

world, The Alpha and Omega, The Beginning
and The End of existence, The Creator of jinn
and man, the Beneficient the Merciful, The All
knowing, The all Seeing and the All Hearing.
Lailaha illa llahu wahadahu laa sharika lau,
lau-l-muliku wa lau-l-hamdu, yuhyi wa yumitu
wahuwa ala kuli shaien Qadeer.

May the peace and blessings of Allah be upon

the Noble Prophet Muhammad, his companions,
his household and the entirety of the muslims
till the day of resurrection, amin. He is the only
prophet sent to the world of the jinn and man,
no creature during this last period will be
exempted from his message (SAW) Muhammad
a friend, a mentor, a father, a guide to all
guides and the message he brought is the only
way to salvation, Rabanna aftah bainana
wabayna kaomina bil haqi wa anta khaerul
SICKNESS as it is defined in American Heritage
Dictionary, is a poor health resulting from
disease of body or mind. Islamically, illness
comes from two dimensions: (1)God (2)oneself,
as it is mentioned in the holy quran.
Nothing happens in this world except through the leave of Allah
(swt). Therefore, a person who has been suffering from distress
should know that Allah (swt) is fully aware of all that has
happened or been happening to him.
He knoweth whatever there is on the earth and in the sea. Not a
leaf doth fall but with His knowledge: there is not a grain in the
darkness (or depths) of the earth nor anything fresh or dry
(green or withered) but is (inscribed) in a Record Clear (to those
who can read). (6:59)

No misfortune can happen on earth or in your souls but is

recorded in a decree before We bring it into existence: that is
truly easy for Allah: in order that ye may not despair over
matters that pass you by (57:22-23)

Goodness is From Allah, Evil is From Ourselves. A believer must

have firm conviction that any good that happens to us comes
from Allah (swt) and any calamity that befalls us is the result of
our own making:

Whatever misfortune happens to you is because of the things

your hands have wrought and for many (of them) He grants
forgiveness. (42:30)
No affliction great or small afflicts a man but for a sin, but there
are more which Allah forgives. (Tirmidhi)

Ye shall certainly be tried and tested in your possessions and in

your personal selves. (3:186)
Do men think that they will be left alone on saying We believe
and that they will not be tested? (29:2)
Be sure We shall test you with something of fear and hunger,
some loss in goods or lives or the fruits (of your toil); but give
glad tidings to those who patiently persevere. (2:155)

It is a reality that all have to accept. No matter how virtuous

one is, he is not exempted from sickness and disease. We know
the examples of many Prophets who suffered from sickness,
such as Prophet Job who suffered from severe skin disorder for
years. Prophet Muhammad (p) himself suffered from sickness.
'Aisha, one of his wives, said: I never saw anybody suffering so
much from sickness as Allah's Apostle.

For a believer, suffering from sickness is not just a reality but

also a philosophy that comes with blessings. He knows that
Allah (swt) in His mercy will expiate some of his sins if he
remains patient through it. The Prophet (p) said:
No Muslim is afflicted with harm because of sickness or some
other inconvenience, but that Allah will remove his sins for him
as a tree sheds its leaves. (Bukhari)
When afflicted with illness and pain, the believer should remind
himself, like Prophet Job did, of all the years when Allah (swt)
blessed him with good health. He should remain patient and ask
Allah (swt) for his Mercy.
One of the major ways in battling sickness, illness and pain is by
patience and prayer. In many places in the Quran, Allah (swt)
asks the believer to seek His help with patience and prayer,
such as:
O ye who believe! seek help with patient perseverance and
prayer: for Allah is with those who patiently persevere. (2:153)
Seek (Allah's) help with patient perseverance and prayer.
The prayer of the people of faith which is ignored by many
muslims. "HAYYU DAFIU" is a good prayer that defends its
reciter from calamity and heal the afflicted.
The transliteration of Hayyu Dafiu is given bellow followed by its
Arabic Text


Bisimilahi Rahmani Raheem

Allahumo ya hayu ya Qoyumu ya Dafiu ya

Qoharu iqihari man aradani bidurin
biqaharika, ya mono akharaja Adamo minali
janati waradahu waya mon darra Ayuba
washafahu, waya mon jahala adaha limusa
wanajahu waya mon rafaha issa ila samohi
waya mon jahala yunusa fi batini li huti
waakharajahu wayamon naja nuha min mohi
tufani najini wayamon salamo Ibrahimo min
nari namurusu salimuni min kuli fashahi
wal-husni wal-hami wal-gami wa-duri
wa-shari wal-fakri wal-moridi wamin kuli si
shari wamin jamihi masahibi duniya
wal-khairati ya Arhamo rahimina wa yamon
akharaja Yusufu min gayabati l-jubi
wazayanahu bili-husna, ya Qodimu liihsani
ihisanaka l-kodeem, ya Dahimu, ya Qayum ya
Kareem. Hasibunallahu wanima l- wakilu,
wanima l-maola wanimo Naseer.
Wa Ayuba idh nada rabahu ani masaniya duru
wa anta Ariamu Rahimina, fasitajabuna lahu,
fakashafna maa bihi min durri wa ataenahu
ahalahu wamithlahu mahahum rahmotan mini
indina wadhikira liliabidina.

May Allah (SWT) let it be beneficial to each
and everyone of us.
