Understand the plan of Allah
If we were to read carefully what those Messengers came with in terms of revelation, we would find that Muhammad sallallahu alaihi wasallam left us with two main things and he says I’ve left you with two things for as long as you hold fast upon them you will never be led astray.
That is the Quran and my Sunnah which means the traditions of the Prophet Muhammad peace be upon …his life and his teachings.
As you apply your mind and you realize why exactly you are on earth; It is precisely what Allah says. So in Surat al-baqarah Allah says we will definitely test every single one of you.
One of the reasons why I’m on earth is to be tested. I will face challenges difficulties hardship.
In fact in Surat al-ankabut Allah says that is how He distinguishes the Believers from those who are liars, those who don’t really believe.
what will Allah test us with? What do I need to expect? in life, we get attached to things and we don’t realize when we came Into this world We were alone. prior to coming into this world We were where Allah wanted us, but we came alone and Allah subhanahu wa’ta’ala says when we go; we will go alone and we will meet Allah alone and we will answer to our questions or accountability will happen alone on that day.
You’ve just come yourself. And guess what? your Deeds; so do good deeds.
I need to fulfill the obligations and stay away from prohibitions and I need to know that the things that I will become acquainted with and attached to at some point Allah will detach me from them for as long as they are material items of this world, things that are very very connected to this.
when we get Too attached to this comfort zone where in the day Allah decides to take us out of it as He has promised. It will be extremely difficult.
So Allah says don’t get too attached even to people, get attached to Allah. the messenger peace be upon him his legacy lives on, his Sunnah lives on, get attached to that.
Dua for protection from illness and disease
This dua for protection from illness should be our constant prayer at this time – and it carries an important reminder that our refuge is always in Allah (SWT):
اللَّهُمَّ إِنِّي أَعُوذُ بِكَ مِنَ الْبَرَصِ، وَالْجُنُونِ، وَالْجُذَامِ، وَمِنْ سَيِّئِ الأَسْقَامِ
Allah humma inni a’udhu bika minal-barasi, wal-jununi, wal-judhaami, wa min sayyi’il-asqaami
“O Allah, I seek refuge in You from leprosy, insanity, elephantiasis, and the worst of diseases.”
