He suddenly felt partially blinded and his head began to throb violently.
An excellent post by the sister, please see original thread by clicking the text above to get full context.
A few weeks ago my son complained about the same symptoms. As a parent it was very worrying and scary to say the least.
My son had severe pain in the head and his vision was distorted for short periods. We took him to the hospital where they did tests on him. They concluded that he had suffered from a Migraine with Aura.
They said it could've been a reaction from food, such as cheese, chocolate, citrus fruits, stress and more. The worse bit about it is that he enjoys all of them and the stress probably comes from school and more from Madresa where he is currently doing Hifz of the Quran.
Alhumdulillah he is much better now but suffers from a few attacks here and there.
Naturally we are worried for him and he's also worried, but MashaAllah he's strong and wants to stay strong and continue with his Hifz, which many people say is the cause.
Today, I read a post and repeated the words above to my son. The cheer it bought to his face and happiness he felt was overwhelming. He was pleased to feel the experience that was once felt by our beloved. Maybe not to the same extent, but simply by the description. But he felt much closer to the Prophet (saw)
Now, re quoting the above with a slight addition to put it in context:
He has decided to regularly recite the Surah to which this incident is related to, Surah Abasa. Who knows, it might just cure his pain.
The Prophet frowned and turned away
Because there came to him the blind man, [interrupting].
But what would make you perceive, [O Muhammad], that perhaps he might be purified
Or be reminded and the remembrance would benefit him?
As for he who thinks himself without need,
To him you give attention.
And not upon you [is any blame] if he will not be purified.
But as for he who came to you striving [for knowledge]
While he fears [ Allah ],
From him you are distracted.
No! Indeed, these verses are a reminder;
So whoever wills may remember it.
[It is recorded] in honored sheets,
[Carried] by the hands of messenger-angels,
