Changing Muslims and the World:
Talking Qur’an to a Friend
(Bringing Islam to the World One Concept at a Time!
Taking the Qur’an to Every Home and Heart that Needs It —
And which One Does Not?)
May Allah grant your son full and speedy recovery and health. And grant you and your family peace of mind. Alhamdulillah, it is wonderful that the surgery went well. May Allah bless you and all your family with excellent health.
Allah does the most amazing things. And everything he does is most amazing. That is why he is God. That is the definition of God, if you ask me: The One Who Does the Most Amazing Things!
Allah’s promise in the Qur’an is that his book the Noble Qur’an is Shifaa — a cure. Allah did not say cure for what specific disease or ailment. That means, it makes sense, does it not, for ALL HUMAN AILMENTS AND DISEASES which at any time may threaten human beings in any shape or form?
Even though Allah does seem to suggest in one place: to the ailments of the heart. Could it mean to everything that may be inside our chests? “Thoracic cavities,” is that what doctors call that part of the human anatomy?
Limaa Fis-Sudoor is how the words in the Qur’an go.
So, I submit three suggestions for your kind consideration:
(1) Read that Aayat Karimah in which Allah says Wa Shifaa-un Lima Fissudoor as many times as you can and blow it on your son and also blow it on your hands and gently rub the part of his surgery on his stomach.
And ask your son to do the same.
(2) Read Yasin Sharif with the intention of asking Allah for full and speedy health for your son. Yasin helps with the purpose for which it is read. That is a Hadith Sharif. And blow it on your son. Do it as often as you can. We can read the Qur’an a billion times, and it is still not too much.
(3) You and your family members — if at all you can do it — together try to complete the reading of the Qur’an — in whatever time frame you can. One week, one month, or whatever. And do it with the intention of asking Allah for health and full recovery for your son and for yourself and your entire family.
Forgive me if I seem to impose on you with these ideas. But the Qur’an is something Muslims have neglected for a long time. And it is never too late for us to go back to the Qur’an.
And try to put it for all the uses that the Qur’an came to help us with: help guide us to Allah; help make our life on earth a successful and fruitful one; and cure us of all the ailments that may afflict us as both individuals and communities and societies.
As for making a trip to meet and visit you all, let me explain how it works: when people get organized, I will go even to the moon to talk to them and share my foolish ideas with them and beg them, in my very crude way, to put their house in order and also show them at the same time how it can be done.
I once traveled thousands of miles just to meet and spend some time with a young man in whom I saw some hope. I will never forget that incident.
So, yes, you go ahead and get the people together — the so-called elite of Islam and Muslims and the non-Muslims of the area as well — and I will come to your place and I will come to wherever else you want to do this. And I will do, with the help and permission of Allah, whatever it takes to try and wake up the Muslims — one more time.
And all of humanity: both Muslim and non-Muslim.
This Ummat needs changing. And so does this world.
And, maybe, this is where we start. One more time.
For the zillionth time!
