The Beginning of Every Illness

February 9, 2020


As-salāmu ‘alaykum
wa raḥmatu Llāhi wa barakātuh. A‘ūdhu biLlāhi mina sh-shayṭāni
r-rajīm. Bismi Llāhi r-Raḥmāni r-Raḥīm. Aṣ-ṣalātu wa s-salāmu ‘alá Rasūlinā
Muḥammadin Sayyidi l-awwalīna wa l-ākhirīn. Madad yā Rasūla Llāh,
madad yā Sādāti Aṣḥābi Rasūli Llāh, madad yā Mashāyikhinā, dastūr yā Shaykh
‘Abdu Llāh al-Fā’iz ad-Dāghistānī, Shaykh Muḥammad Nāẓim al-Ḥaqqānī. Ṭarīqatunā ṣ-ṣuḥbah
wa l-khayru fi l-jam‘iyyah. Our Prophet ﷺ is saying, “Al-ma‘dah baytu l-dā’
wa l-ḥimyati ra’su d-dawā’.” Ḥadīth sharīf, our Prophet ﷺ says so. “The stomach is the beginning of illness and diet is the beginning of cure.” The illnesses of people today have increased. And as illnesses increase people wonder what they should do. A person who controls his stomach and his ego has better health. The middle road. Don’t take
things too far. Our Prophet ﷺ says to eat neither too little nor too much. Everything should be in the middle to have comfort. Some people, even when they have everything, still they can’t resist and they
overeat. And then as everyone’s body is different, some people can have serious illnesses. And when there is an illness, they should go to a doctor. However, the doctors nowadays are not like they were before. They have diplomas but most of them
know nothing. They send you to have a blood test and give medicine. Medicine makes it worse instead of better. Therefore, instead of being treated with a medicine, a man should take his ego under control in the beginning. And regarding diet, most food now is made of things we don’t know. It’s not clear what it’s made of. We should be careful about it. They say “Mawlānā doesn’t like medicine.
We shouldn’t take medicine.” Right, Mawlānā
doesn’t like. But when there is a need for it… Everything has a time when it’s needed
and not needed. When the medicine is needed, Allāh ﷻ is giving it to you. And when
you don’t take it, you put yourself at risk. You are responsible for this. Of course, as we said, there are
some things. You can’t even rely on doctors. When you need a serious medicine or something, don’t rely on one doctor. You should ask several doctors. And when all of them say the same thing,
then you can do it. “Mawlānā doesn’t like it. We shouldn’t
take medicine.” There were madhouses in the old days, and there were mad patients tied with chains in madhouses. May Allāh ﷻ protect us.
With Allāh’s ﷻ grace, one medicine appeared. When they
took that medicine, those people tied with a chain could
walk around like normal. Idiot people are coming, saying,
“Mawlānā said not to take medicine. Leave this medicine”.
And people leave it. It happened many times here. They broke the bus windows, the municipality
windows. They attacked people’s houses because they didn’t take their medicine. It’s not good to give an opinion on everything all alone. Everything has its expert,
has its method. You shouldn’t interfere. There are some idiots in our dergah here. They immediately interfere. While we’re sweating here – “don’t run the fan, Mawlānā doesn’t like fans.” As we don’t drink cold water in winter, “Don’t give cold water to Mawlānā.
He doesn’t like it”. It’s cold, of course
we don’t like it. It should be middle, neither like
a bath, nor like ice. You should give it medium.
As we said, everything should be medium.
We are warning you about our brothers. Be careful. You can’t listen to everyone in
our dergah. When there is a serious need, you ask and do as they say. With the wisdom of Allāh ﷻ it is His favour. “As I ﷻ created the illness, I ﷻ created the medicine”, says Allāh
‘Azza wa Jalla. An illness definitely has its medicine. Only when death comes, medicine doesn’t
help. Then a person reaches Allāh’s ﷻ mercy. We should be careful about it. You shouldn’t reject everything but use your mind a little. And also don’t make decisions on your own and don’t interfere in the business
of others. Prophet ﷺ he
saying every illness, the beginning
from stomach and head
of treatment to pehriz, diet – to make your diet, to look after
what you eat. And this is also coming
from ego. You must control
your ego. Stomach you can
eat but you must not for extreme eat.
When you are not feeling
hungry – it’s enough. Not you seeing
I must eat all this table. You eat once,
twice, after your body
maybe there is… Allāh ﷻ create
everybody different, different kind of body. Some people
they can eat many but they are nothing happen for
them and they are slim. But some of
them if they eat, quickly they becoming many kind
of illness. And Prophet ﷺ
every time he is saying for people be [in the] middle. If you eat, eat middle,
if you drink also. If you sleep,
don’t sleep twelve hours,
fifteen hours. Everything in Islām you must be
control your ego so you will be,
in shā’a Llāh, healthy and no need
for any treatment. But many people they
are not looking for this and they
become ill also. And when you come ill
quickly you going to doctor and doctor many
time they give you medicine. This
doctor these days they are not like
old time doctor. Only go and
make this blood test, urine test,
every hundred test for you. After he look and he
give you one medicine. But this medicine also,
most of medicine it is not good. Sometimes making
you more ill. But if you are ill what
you will do? You must look not only for
one doctor, especially if you have
serious illness – Allāh ﷻ keep it away from
all of us, in shā’a Llāh. And if they all of
them saying same thing you can take.
But if not ok you, you
can try with many thing but the end
if you it is necessary, you must take medicine.
If you not take medicine and you something
happen for you, this is your
responsibility not anybody else. And many people
they are saying “Mawlānā he not
like medicine. Don’t take medicine.”
Ok you must – like antibiotic
or other thing – you can try. One day, two days,
three days if you it is you can without this
without taking this you cure yourself it is very
good because your body not need for this. For headache also maybe you
must be patient. At the end
you can take. And this if
you do this this medicine
it be can effect for your
illness in the other time. One pill it is enough
for you to cure but if you’re used to
it, is must be take more stronger,
more stronger. But somebody
they are doing this and many people
they in need for medicine. So
they must take. Because this is “wa lā tulqū bi-aydīkum ilá t-tahlukah”
(2:195) Prophet ﷺ
or āyah Āyah Qur’ān He ﷻ
said, “don’t throw yourself
in danger.” If you not
take medicine maybe something
happen for you so it is
you be in bad situation and people they will
be sorry for you. For this Mawlānā
many time he allowed, not
prevent. But there is very clever
people in our dargah, in everywhere, they said people
don’t take this. Some especially
for mental people old
time in mental house there
was what they doing very dangerous
people they was. They put him in
chain. Chain them to not harm
anybody. Stay there maybe some times
for whole life, sometime one
year, two years. But Allāh ‘Azza wa Jalla
from His mercy He ﷻ make some people to find
some medicine this when he
take one pill a day he is like –
whole life he is outside of mental house
and he is like normal people. But they are coming
here and there is… Especially we have many they need this
medicine this make people with it they
say “don’t take this, this Mawlānā he was not like this at all. You have jinn you have what a… other thing. Don’t take.” And we see
many times, many case here
they broke bus glass, attacking ladies, attacking people
they are going to their house. And all this coming what because this
clever people they don’t take this pill. And the end they cut
them you put them in mental house and they send them. This is what we
must not interfere with thing you are not
knowing about it. Allāh ﷻ make
people to help this people and
it is ok what will do. It is from
Allāh ﷻ coming. Only you must
be patient Allāh ﷻ reward you.
Don’t say I will
not take this. It is important,
you must take. Other people they have
like diabetes or other thing also they must
take some medicine, also they must look for
after themself. Before becoming
diabetes if they have looking for
themself maybe no need for this.
But when happen it must be careful
for yourself to not be
in danger. Allāh ﷻ He create all illness
but He ﷻ said I ﷻ am also create
for them medicine. And Luqmān Ḥakīm
he was has every medicine
for every illness. But he said
“only death I don’t have this
medicine for this. When death coming nothing affect
for any medicine.” So we must, in shā’a Llāh – Allāh ﷻ keep
away from us illness. Must
be careful for to be before
coming ill to look for yourself what you eat,
what you drink and especially in this days everything they put chemical, they put something making
people ill. Allāh ﷻ save us
from them. Wa min Allāhi t-tawfīq al-Fātiḥah.
