Shor message of hope & comfort from Quran/Hadith?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts


Someone my wife knows just found out that she has stage 4 cancer (the most advanced)...

Is there a short ayat from the Quran or something from hadith that would be good as a message of hope & comfort for the person with cancer? I'm looking for something that's about 10-20 words when translated into English.

[29.64] And this life of the world is nothing but a sport and a play; and as for the next abode, that most surely is the life-- did they but know.

ok, that's like a little more than twenty words :donno:. summarize it or something, man.

Assalaamu Alaykum,

May Allah (swt) help your wife's friend during this difficult period. Surely Allah (swt) is the only One to look to during this time.

Surely with difficulty is ease (94.6)

With difficulty is surely ease (94.6)

And We do not lay on any soul a burden except to the extent of its ability (23.62)

Therefore endure with a goodly patience (70.5)

And We will most certainly try you with somewhat of fear and hunger and loss of property and lives and fruits; and give good news to the patient (2.155)

Imam Husayn [a] said: "O Lord! You are the nearest one Whom can be requested from; You are the soonest responder, and You are the most gracious in bestowing; Whose gift is the vastest and You hearken the best to what you are asked for. I call to You, O' the Beneficent in this world and the next, and the Merciful in both of them!" --'Arafah Invocation

Call upon Me, I will answer you (40:60)

And a powerful saying of Ameerul Mumineen (as): "O Allah, we do not ask you for a light burden but for strong backs."

InshAllah this helps some. She is in our dua'aa, inshAllah khayr.

wa salaam

    • 24- When the Honorable the Exalted God revealed the following verse, ‘O ye who believe! When ye consult the Messenger in private, spend something in charity before your private consultation..’ I had a gold coin. I sold it for ten Dirhams and gave it away in charity before my private consultation with God’s Prophet (MGB). I swear by God that none of the companions of the Prophet (MGB) did that either before or after me. Then the Honorable the Exalted God revealed the following verse to the Prophet, ‘Is it that ye are afraid of spending sums in charity before your private consultation (with him)? If, then, ye do not so, and God forgives you, then (at least) establish regular prayer; practise regular charity; and obey God and His Apostle. And God is well-acquainted with all that ye do.’ Is it not that ‘and God forgives you’ refers to a sin committed for which God forgives them. 25- I heard God’s Prophet (MGB) say, ‘Paradise is forbidden for the Prophets to enter before I enter it, and it is forbidden upon the Trustees to enter before you enter it. O Ali! The Blessed the Sublime God has given me glad tidings about you which He has not given to any of the Prophets who came before me. He has given me glad tidings that you will be the Master of the Trustees and your two sons Al-Hassan and Al-Hussein (MGB) will be the two Masters of the Youth in Paradise on the Resurrection Day.’ 26- My brother Ja’far will be adorned with two wings made of pearl, ruby and chrysolite and fly along with the angels in Paradise.  27- My uncle Hamzih will be the Master of the Martyrs in Paradise. 28- God’s Prophet (MGB) said, ‘The Blessed the Sublime God has given me a promise about you which will be fulfilled. God has established me as a Prophet and has established you as a Trustee. Soon you shall experience from my nation the same treatment which Moses (MGB) experienced from Pharaoh. However, be patient and consider it to be from God until you see me again. I am the friend of your friends and I consider your enemies to be my enemies.’ 29- Indeed I heard God’s Prophet (MGB) say, ‘O Ali! You are the Owner of the Heavenly Pool . No one else will own it. Then some people will come to you and ask for water. You will turn them down and say that there is not even a sip of water. They will return with a black face. Then my followers and yours will enter. You will say, ‘return while satiated with water.’ They will return with a white face.’ (To be continued.........)
