The Messenger of Allah SAW would seek refuge with Allah from leukoderma, insanity, leprosy and evil diseases.
These are all examples of disease of the body and senses.
The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) seeks refuge in Allah from certain ailments in this Hadith.
When Allah’s Messenger (may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him) takes refuge in Allah from them, it signifies they are extremely harmful and have a negative impact.
The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) sought Allah’s protection from a number of specific diseases, then asked Allah to keep him healthy and free from all evil and harmful diseases in general.
This supplication includes a specific and detailed part followed by a general and comprehensive part.
- Leprosy is a disease that afflicts human limbs. Although, it usually starts from the limbs, it could spread to afflict other body parts- we ask Allah for well-being.
Thus, scholars say it is not permissible for people with leprosy to mix with people.
It is duty bound on the ruler to place them in a restricted area; this is known today among people as quarantine or lepers’ colony.
This is because leprosy is one the most horrible type of contagious diseases as it travels like wind, we ask Allah for well-being.
The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) sought refuge in Allah from leucoderma, a disease characterised by white patches on the skin that causes people to turn and flee from those who have it.
This makes man feel alienated and dissatisfied, which Allah forbids.
- Insanity refers to the disappearance of one’s mind.
The mind is what qualifies one for religious work, and it is through it that one worships Allah, as well as ponders and reflects on Allah’s creation and holy Speech.
For this reason, the Prophet (may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him) said: “There are three (kinds of people) whose actions are not recorded: (one of them is) and the insane until his mind is back.
- Leprosy is a disease that eats away at one’s organs till they fall off. It is a contagious sickness, which is why another Hadith mentions it: “Flee from the leprosy like a lion would.”
- And evil diseases: It includes all bad ailments as well as what is known today as cancer, we ask Allah for wellbeing.
Evil and horrible diseases, such as cancer, blindness, and paralysis, are limitations that make one feel despised and rejected in society. This is because these diseases are serious and require a large sum of money to treat.
They also require a tremendous deal of patience, which can only be demonstrated by those to whom Allah, the Almighty, has granted patience and strengthened their hearts.
Indeed, cancer is one of the worst ailments.
It is important for one to adhere to the like of these hadeeths, and imitate the Prophet SAW regarding them.
This Hadith shows the greatness of Islam that protects the Muslim’s religion and cares for his body.
Allah Alone grants success.
