FYI / Healing with the Medicine of the Prophet / Health

Well-being Always

 

Abu Hurairah (radhiyallaahu ‘anhu) narrated: The Messenger of Allaah (sallallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam) said: “Ask Allaah for forgiveness (‘afwa) and well-being (‘aafiyah) and health (mu’aafaah). Indeed no one acquires a better possession after certainty of faith than good health.” {An Nasaa-i}
The slave’s success cannot be complete in both lives except by joining certainty of faith and well-being. Certainty of faith fends off the torments of the Next Life while well-being fends off the ailments of this life that might attack the┬ábody or the heart.

The three matters mentioned in the hadeeth entail removing the ills of the past with forgiveness, of the present with well-being and of the future with immunity (from error and thus from the Torment). Indeed, these words entail the continuity of well-being always.
