Question

Assalamu alaikum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakaatuh

My question is that one Islamic sister has a problem with mirgi. She wants to come in dawat Islamic weekly ijtimah, but Islamic didn't let her come. She is very depressed to want to come for a cure, due to behaviour of sisters she is very disappointed, She is now trying to go away from the good acts, is it allowed in Islam for sisters to do like that?

 

بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمنِ الرَّحِيْم

In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful

 

Answer:

 

Help each other in righteousness and piety, and do not help each other in sin and aggression. Fear Allah. Surely, Allah is severe at punishment. (Surah Maidah: 2)

Abu Hurairah has reported Allah's Messenger () as saying: He who relieves the suffering of a brother from the sufferings of the world, Allah will relieve his suffering from the sufferings of the Day of Resurrection, and he who finds relief for one who is hard-pressed, Allah will make things easy for him in the world and the Hereafter, and he who conceals (the faults) of a Muslim, Allah will conceal his faults in the world and in the Hereafter.

Allah is in the assistance of a servant so long as the servant is in the assistance of his brother, and he who treads a path in search of knowledge, Allah will make that path easy, leading to Paradise for him and those people who assemble in a house among the houses of Allah (mosques) and recite the Book of Allah and they learn and teach the Qur'an (among themselves) there tranquillity will descend upon them and mercy will cover them and the angels will surround them and Allah mentions them in the presence of those near Him, and he who is slow-paced in doing good deeds, his (high) lineage will not make him go ahead.[1]

From the above verse of the Quran and the Hadith along with many other Hadith, we can conclude that it is not from amongst the teachings of the Islam or the characteristics of a Muslim to exclude another from activities due to an illness which Allah has given them especially more so when it is Islamic activities.

We would recommend that the sisters reconsider and provide support to the sister with the illness especially at the time of need.
