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

    • Tawheed means that we don't believe Allah has body parts, but rather, the reference to his hands in the Quran is not that he literally has hands, but it's a metaphor for his mercy. We believe Allah is not constricted to time or space or body, according to the Ahlul Bayt (AS)
    • thank you very much
    • Honestly why are the Sunni speakers silent? not a single lecture on Imam Hussein(as)? no Facebook post or anything?  It is just plain ridiculous! I feel sad that even Hindus know more about the battle of Karbala than many modern day Muslims.
    • Okay. I'm sure you have heard of Karbal Tou Piya Likhda (I love this noha btw). My dad made me listen to a song called 'sheeshe ka tha dil mera" which is literally a copy of the noha 'Karbal tou piya likhda'. Be careful it's Muharram plus video might not be very appropriate (I'm not telling you to listen to it). This took away the spirit of the noha. I don't know if the noha copied the song or the song copied the noha. There were a couple more but I completely forgot. I'll let you know when I remember. 
    • Allah was too busy explaining bananas, honey bees, mountains and palm trees in the Qur'an and left this really important matters of creed out. That's why he need fallible humans to explain in created Tafseers what He meant.
