It seems the more I make dua, the worse things get.

Crohn,s disease can indeed cause some serious liver complications like ‘sclerosing cholangitis’ BUT look at it with a different point of view.Allah swt placed you in a country where even if liver transplant is required you have access to it.What if you had the same problem in a poor third world country,where no such facilities were available or you could not afford it ?

InshaAllah your son have no such complication and he will get well soon.Many people live long with Crohn,s disease,it may even go into spontaneous remission and some new modalities of treatment are available in tertiary care centres in developed countries....

I can understand your pain,still there is a lot to be thankful for...

May Allah swt help you in this test and grant your son complete health and reward you immensely for your difficulties in this life.No doubt, the real life is the life after death...

May Allah make things easy for you and your family my Brother , try and stay strong and positive In Sha Allah,... May Allah grant shifa to your son ameen.

I have a relative who has had Crohns disease for 30 years or so, he was diagnosed in his early twenties although the symptoms of the illness occasionally get worse for short periods, he has lived a very productive life earns in excess of £100,0000 per year one would not be able to tell he has this illness. The treatment to control is better now then it was several decades when very harsh steroid based anti inflammatories where used.

As for children they can be more resilient then we realise, my nephews son was born without fully functioning intestines, and had a colostomy bag placed on him right from early childhood, had various operations,although the parents where very depressed and worried for his future.... He himself managed to adapt he is now a teenager is one of the top students in his school very happy with life in general, although he does get occasionally frustrated at not being able to participate in sports but beyond that has coped really well.

I hope following true Story by Dr Khalid al Jubeir might offer some hope ...InSha Allah.

Shukr of the Mother of a terminally ill child.


This story was recounted by Prof. Khalid Al-Jubeir, consulting cardiovascular surgeon and religious speaker in one of his lectures:

Once I operated on a two and a half year old child. It was Tuesday, and on Wednesday the child was in good health. On Thursday at 11:15 am – and I’ll never forget the time because of the shock I experienced – one of the nurses informed me that the heart and breathing of the child had stopped. I hurried to the child and performed cardiac massage for 45 minutes and during that entire time the heart would not work.

Then, ALLAH decreed for the heart to resume function and we thanked HIM. I went to inform the child’s family about his condition. As you know, it is very difficult to inform the patient’s family about his condition when it’s bad. This is one of the most difficult situations a doctor is subjected to but it is necessary. So I looked for the child’s father whom I couldn’t find. Then I found his mother. I told her that the child’s cardiac arrest was due to bleeding in his throat; we don’t know the cause of this bleeding and fear that his brain is dead. So how do you think she responded? Did she cry? Did she blame me? No, nothing of the sort. Instead, she said: “Al-Hamdulillah” (All Praise is due to ALLAH) and left me.

After 10 days, the child started moving. We thanked ALLAH and were happy that his brain condition was reasonable. After 12 days, the heart stopped again because of the same bleeding. We performed another cardiac massage for 45 minutes but this time his heart didn’t respond. I told his mother that there was no hope. So she said: “Al-Hamdulillah. O ALLAH, if there is good in his recovery, then cure him, O my Lord.”

With the grace of ALLAH, his heart started functioning again. He suffered six similar cardiac arrests till a trachea specialist was able to stop the bleeding and the heart started working properly. Now, three and a half months had passed and the child was recovering but did not move. Then just as he started moving, he was afflicted with a very large and strange pus-filled abscess in his head, the likes of which I had never seen. I informed his mother of the serious development. She said: “Al-Hamdulillah” and left me.

We immediately turned him over to the surgical unit that deals with the brain and nervous system and they took over his treatment. Three weeks later, the boy recovered from this abscess but was still not moving. Two weeks pass and he suffers from a strange blood poisoning and his temperature reaches 41.2°C (106°F). I again informed his mother of the serious development and she said with patience and certainty: “Al-Hamdulillah! O ALLAH, if there is good in his recovery, then cure him.”

After seeing his mother who was with her child at Bed#5, I went to see another child at Bed#6. I found that child’s mother crying and screaming, “Doctor! Doctor! Do something! The boy’s temperature reached 37.6°C (99.68°F)! He’s going to die! He’s going to die! I said with surprise, “Look at the mother of that child in Bed#5. Her child’s fever is over 41°C (106°F), yet she is patient and praises ALLAH.” So she replied: “That woman isn’t conscious and has no senses.” At that point, I remembered the great Hadith of the Prophet (Sallallaahu Alaihi Wa Sallam): “Blessed are the strangers.” Just two words… but indeed two words that shake a nation! In 23 years of hospital service, I have never seen the likes of this patient sister.

We continued to care for him. Now, six and a half months have passed and the boy finally came out of the recovery unit – not talking, not seeing, not hearing, not moving, not smiling, and with an open chest in which you can see his beating heart. The mother changed the dressing regularly and remained patient and hopeful. Do you know what happened after that? Before I inform you, what do you think are the prospects of a child who has passed through all these dangers, agonies, and diseases? And what do you expect this patient mother to do whose child is at the brink of the grave and who is unable to do anything except supplicate and beseech ALLAH? Do you know what happened two and a half months later? The boy was completely cured by the mercy of ALLAH and as a reward for this pious mother. He now races his mother with his feet as if nothing happened and he became sound and healthy as he was before.

The story doesn’t end here. This is not what moved me and brought tears to my eyes. What filled my eyes with tears is what follows:

One and a half years after the child left the hospital, one of the brothers from the Operations Unit informed me that a man, his wife and two children wanted to see me. I asked who they were and he replied that he didn’t know them. So I went to see them, and I found the parents of the same child whom I operated upon. He was now five years old and like a flower in good health – as if nothing happened to him. With them also was a four-month old newborn. I welcomed them kindly and then jokingly asked the father whether the newborn was the 13th or 14th child. He looked at me with an astonishing smile as if he pitied me. He then said, “This is the second child, and the child upon whom you operated is our first born, bestowed upon us after 17 years of infertility. And after being granted that child, he was afflicted with the conditions that you’ve seen.”

At hearing this, I couldn’t control myself and my eyes filled with tears. I then involuntarily grabbed the man by the arm, and pulling him to my room, asked him about his wife: “Who is this wife of yours who after 17 years of infertility has this much patience with all the fatal conditions that afflict her first born?! Her heart cannot be barren! It must be fertile with Imaan!” Do you know what he said? Listen carefully my dear brothers and sisters. He said, “I was married to this woman for 19 years and for all these years she has never missed the [late] night prayers except due to an authorized excuse. I have never witnessed her backbiting, gossiping, or lying. Whenever I leave home or return, she opens the door, supplicates for me, and receives me hospitably. And in everything she does, she demonstrates the utmost love, care, courtesy, and compassion.” The man completed by saying, “Indeed, doctor, because of all the noble manners and affection with which she treats me, I’m shy to lift up my eyes and look at her.” So I said to him: “And the likes of her truly deserve that from you.”

The End…

ALLAH says: “And We will surely test you with something of fear and hunger and a loss of wealth and lives and fruits, but give good tidings to the patient; Who, when calamity strikes them, say, “Indeed we belong to ALLAH, and indeed to HIM we will return.” Those are the ones upon whom are blessings from their Lord and mercy. And it is those who are the [rightly] guided.” [Surah 2:155-157]

Umm Salamah (the wife of the Prophet) said: I heard the Messenger of ALLAH (Sallallaahu Alaihi Wa Sallam) saying: “There is no Muslim who is stricken by a calamity and says what ALLAH has commanded him – ‘Indeed we belong to ALLAH, and indeed to Him we will return; O ALLAH, reward me for my affliction and compensate me with that which is better’ – except that ALLAH will grant him something better in exchange.” When Abu Salamah [her former husband] passed away, I said to myself: “What Muslim is better than Abu Salamah?” I then said the words, and ALLAH gave me the Messenger of ALLAH (Sallallaahu Alaihi Wa Sallam) in exchange. [Sahih Muslim]

Very long time ago, I heard a story and I would like to share it.

Once a villager stood up in Tahajudd holding a rod of iron and asked Allah to make it gold. All night he kept on repeating this dua but nothing happened. Now, the time of fajr was going to start and daylight was soon to appear. Finally at the last moment he got frustrated and threw the rod while saying, make it soil and it turned into soil.

Lesson: If he wouldn't lose hope and kept on making dua, the rod would have turned into gold.

So never lose hope in the mercy of Allah. Allah created Crohn and other diseases. When he has created it so then he can also cure it too.

Assalam o Alaikum,

1. Do you know the secret key of developing yaqeen in the unseen? Strong and firm belief in the unseen world is developed when one is in crisis. When all the material means fail to fulfill your needs. When all logic and science fails to explain the problem. When one has lost all hope in the asbaab of dunia. This is the golden period when one has to do amaal in order to activate the divine mercy.

Do not lose this opportunity. You can become a wali in the process. Now I am certain that doctors can't solve your problem. However, I would not suggest to stop medical treatment of your son. However, I would strongly advise that you and your wife start practicing ruqya with full conviction, full belief and full force. Remember! Nobody else can do dua and ruqya for you and your son as can you and your wife. This is the pain and love for your child which will put the right amount of yearning and sincerity in your amaal.

2. Do you know that why do I love the paths of Tabligh and Jihad? Because both of the paths require mujahida. And without mujahida yaqeen and greatness can't be achieved. They (the average tablighis) don't know what tabligh really is? They say that we go for shorter tashkeels because it's easy. However, without longer tashkeels and without trials and hardships one can't develop iman. So Allah has bestowed this opportunity for you to develop yaqeen in His mercy. The key is to have sabr, to do the amaal with conviction and to not lose hope.

3. Do not say when will the problem be solved. Do not hurry things up. Just focus on the amaal, leave the results to Allah and hope for the best.

4. When a thing is lost we have two choices to make. Either shout at our family for even if the fault is ours. Or else do the amal of reciting durood while trying to find the lost item having strong belief that because of this amal, Allah will help us find our lost item.

You have the choice.
Either scream or else do the amal with sabr, determination and istiqamah.

As a mother, i could understand the pain and people have given very touching tips and posts to deal with the situation you are in which I find it very useful for myself. I am not a medical doctor but I remember reading somewhere how a man had liver inflammation and he was advised to soak black seed oil in the night and to cook rice with that water after boiling and staining. Down south people here eat rice. By Allah's help the man was cured. The virtue of black seeds is well known by the hadith of our beloved prophet SAW.

It appears in Hadith that the Holy Prophet (صلی اللہ علیہ وآلہ وسلم) said: Surah Al-An` am, the whole of it, was revealed at one time. Such was the ma¬jesty of its revelation that seventy thousand angels followed behind it reciting Tasbih (glorifying Allah). Therefore, Sayyidna Faruq al-A` zam (رض) said: Surah Al-An'-am is one of the highly merited Surahs of the Holy Qur'an.

In some narrations, it has been reported from Sayyidna ` Ali (رض) that Allah Ta` ala would become the healer of the sick person over whom this Surah is recited. Maariful Quran

Tried to find that tamil video where I heard that. It was lung inflammation but not the liver. A tea spoonful of black seeds is tied in a cloth and was put in the pot of boiling water with rice to cook the porridge. The essence of black seed gets into the porridge. The man who was a sidda doctor ate that three times a day for three days and got cured from the inflammation. He says black seed works best for any internal inflammation. Allahu alam
