How you have the power to restore sight!

Assalaamualaikum MATW Family,

Did you know that 80% of visual impairments are curable?

Alhamdulillah if you are able to read this you have been blessed with sight.  Just think how limited your life would be if you were unable to see?  Blindness is the partial or full loss of sight in your eyes. There are currently over 35 million people who are living with blindness.

So where do we stand as individuals in the care of our Ummah who are facing such trials in this Dunya and what are our responsibilities?

Abu Salih reported: “Umar ibn al-Khattab, may Allah be pleased with him, was committed to an old, disabled blind woman who lived on the outskirts of Medina. At night he would draw water for her and manage her affairs. When he came to her one time, he found that someone else had preceded him and taken care of what she needed. So, Umar came to her more than once, lest someone come to her before him, and he lied in wait. He found that it was Abu Bakr al-Siddiq, may Allah be pleased with him, who had already come to her; he was Caliph at the time”.

From this hadith, we learn many valuable lessons. First and foremost, we gain knowledge on the love, care, and mercy, we are to show to those who are physically impaired. Secondly, we are made aware of the importance of action and persistence. When an opportunity presents itself to help someone in need, we are to act on it and be persistent in that action.
