“O sick person who due to illness cannot perform his ‘ibâdah and awrâd and feels grief at the deprivation! Know that it is stated in a Hadith that "A muttaqî mu’min who due to illness cannot perform the awrâd he normally regularly performs, receives an equal reward." On an ill person carrying out his fardh as far as it is possible with patience and tawakkul, during that time of severe illness, the illness takes the place of other Sunnahs -and in a sincere form.

Moreover, illness makes a person understand his impotence and weakness. It causes him to offer du'â both verbally and through the tongue of his impotence and weakness. Janâb-i Haqq bestowed on man a boundless impotence and infinite weakness so that he would perpetually seek refuge at the Ilahî Court and beseech and offers du'â. According to the mystery of the âyah, قُلْ مَا يَعْبَؤُا بِكُمْ رَبِّى لَوْلاَ دُعَاؤُكُم that is, "what importance would you have if you do not have your du'â?", the hikmah in man's creation and reason for his value is sincere du'â and supplication. Since one cause of this is illness, from this point of view it should not be complained about, but Allah should be offered shukr for it, and the tap of du'â which illness opens should not be closed by regaining health.” The Flashes ( 274 )
