Maulana Sheikh NazimAsking to be Cured
The first thing a patient must do, is to say, "I am Your servant. I have become weaker through this illness. I know it is a result of my bad actions, my sins. Please give me Your Forgiveness for the sake of your most beloved and precious servant." If you ask for the respect of His most respected one, shifa will be given to you. According to the level of your belief, it can be given to you instantly, after one hour, one day, 3 days, one week, or after one month. After 40 days it must be taken away from you!
Allah will ask you, "What do you want to use your health for?" If you ask for health and strength, you must do it with the intention to serve Him more, not to run even faster after this world. Everything is under His Will, no-one can go against it. It is the base of every building. With a strong foundation you can have a strong belief which will give you pleasure. You will never be sorrowful.

Once Hajaj ordered a companion to be killed. The companion was smiling all along, because he was accepting the Will of His Lord. That is the highest level of belief. You must know that Allah has given us endless levels of belief. A worshipper follows the orders of Allah, but a servant will also follow His Will.

Aziz Mahmud Hudaye was the Sheikh of Sultan Ahmed who built the Blue Mosque in Istanbul. When you enter it you have the feeling that you are entering paradise. The Sultan himself helped putting the stones and soil on the foundation, like a labourer. Every Sultan must have a Sheikh, because if a sultanate is not supported by spiritual power it cannot exist, it must fall.

During his reign a heavy illness befell the people of the time. They fell ill in the morning and were dead by the evening. People were prayed on and buried all day long. A great fear spread over the land. The scholars decided to get together and to go to the Sheikh and ask him to make a prayer asking Allah the Almighty to remove this punishment from his people. The Sheikh opened his door and told them to come in. "Oh our master, you know which terrible illness has befallen us. We are in fear. Please make a dua which Allah will accept to remove this curse."

"I understand that you want this. But until now I have never asked to remove anything which Allah has ordered. I have never asked to change His Will. I am sorry, I cannot do what you are asking for."

The people were sorry and started to cry. But Allah doesn't want His servants to be hopeless, so the Sheikh continued, "Oh you servants, this is my way. But I can send you to someone who can do what you are asking for. I am sending you to a huge cemetery, so frightening that people normally do not even want to go there during the day. Deep in there you will find a meshtub, who is occupied with the love and the respect of his Lord. He is on another level all together, attracted to the Divine Level. Beware, it is not easy to come close to him! When he sees you coming, he will attack you with stones and words. Don't give up, tell him that I have sent you!"

It happened the way the Sheikh had told them, and when they mentioned the name of the Sheikh to the meshtub, he said, "Oh my brothers, give my respects to him. I will do what he asks of me. I am under his command. Go back to the mosque and pray for the illness to go away, and it will."

The people returned, and as he had said, the illness finished with their prayer.

Allah the Almighty has such servants, when they ask for something, it will happen at once. Keep your respect for everyone, they can be hidden ones. You may lose a big chance to get their prayers and duas.
