This world is an abode of trials in which no man is safe from an illness that disrupts his life or weakens him. Afflictions are however a blessing; for our Lord showers mercy through trials and tries some with blessings. Bitterness of this world for the believer is the real sweetness of the Hereafter for him. Many a blessing given to a man has been a source of his illness and many a deprived person has been healed through his depravity. Allâh says,

"It may be that you dislike a thing which is good for you and you like a thing which is bad for you. Allâh knows but you do not know." (2:216)

Affliction is a sign of Allâh's love and the way to Paradise. The Prophet, Salallâhu alayhe wa salam, said,

"Great reward goes with great affliction, and when Allâh loves a people, He tries them. Whoever shows contentedness among them will earn the pleasure of Allâh and whoever becomes angry earns the anger of Allâh." (At-Tirmidhî)

When entering a market/shopping center recite the following words: Laa ilaaha illallaahu wahdahu Laa shareeka lahu, lahul mulku wa lahul hamdu yuhyee wa yumeetu wa huwa hayyul Laa yamootu, biyadihil khayr wa huwa alaa kulli shay'in qadeer There is no deity except Allah, the Only One. He has no partner. To Him belongs all kingdom and to Him belongs all praise. He is the One who gives life and death. And He is Ever-living and no death comes to Him. In His Hand lies all good and He has power over everything.

It is reported in a Hadith that for reciting these words, Allah Ta’aala will record one million good deeds, forgive one million sins, elevate the status a million times and build a house for him in Jannah.

"Ah yes, Mr Arnaldo. What can I do for you? Is there a problem?"
"Um, I am just calling to advise you, sir! that your parrot died"
"My parrot? Dead? The one that won the competition?"
"That's the one."
"Darn! That's such a pity! I spent a small fortune on that bird. Oh well...what did he die from?"
"From eating rotten meat."
"Rotten meat? Who was so mean as to give him meat?"
"Nobody. He ate the meat of one of the dead horses."
"Dead horse? What dead horse Mr. Arnaldo?"
"Why those pure breed ones that you had, sir. They died from all that work pulling the water cart." "Are you insane? What water cart?"
"The one we used to put out the fire."
"Good Lord! What fire are you talking about, man?"
"The one at your house! A candle fell and then the curtain caught on fire."
"What the.....!!!But there's electricity at the house!!!! What was the candle for???"
