Abstract:   (1287 Views)
Nature is the world of material, movement, and contradiction. The nature of such a world is accompanied by health and illness. From the superficial view, disease only carries evil and destruction; however, from the monotheistic worldview, there is no absolute evil in existence, and in every apparently unpleasant matter, some wisdom and benefits are hidden, and disease is no exception. In the traditions of the holy innocents (pbuth), the wisdom of illness has been discussed. Examining all traditions requires several studies; this research was based on a descriptive and analytical method in order to briefly examine the wisdom of illness in humans from the perspective of some hadiths. The findings of the research indicated that, firstly, the patient's suffering and helplessness caused his soul to be refined. Secondly, in the high stages of faith, illness causes the servant to be close to God. Thirdly, God's precise system is based on punishment and reward; among other wisdoms of disease is punishment of criminals and rewards to believers. Fourthly, sometimes disease causes death. This wisdom of disease is in line with divine laws and traditions governing the material world. Fifthly, illness includes divine forgiveness. In his prayer, Imam Sajjad (a.s.) praises God for the illness that involves God's forgiveness. Sixth, illness causes the heart of a sinful servant to pay attention to God and makes it possible for faith to pass from the tongue to the heart.
