DIET IS NECESSARY FOR THE SICK PERSON

Hadrat [1] Imam-i Rabbanı says in the 75th letter of the second volume of his Maktûbat:

May Allahu ta’ala make you safe against unbecoming things! The coming of disasters and troubles upon the beloved is an atonement for the forgiveness of their sins. Begging, weeping, taking refuge, and with a broken heart, you should ask for forgiveness and good health from Allahu ta’ala. Until it is understood that the prayer has been accepted and the fitna (affliction) has come to an end, you should pray so. Your friends and those who wish goodness for you are praying for you, yet it is better for the aggrieved person himself to supplicate. To take medicine and diet are necessary for the sick person himself. What others will do, at the very most, is to help him. To tell the truth, everything coming from the Beloved should be encountered with smiles, with pleasure. Everything coming from there should be found sweet. The Beloved’s treating harshly and humiliating should be like a kindness, a gift, an exalting. In fact, they should be sweeter than such desires of one’s own nafs [2]. If a lover is not so, his love will be incomplete. In fact, his saying that he loves will be a lie.
