Great benefit for old age By Mohammad Rafique Etesame Usamah bin Sharik said: "Some Bedouins asked: 'O Messenger of Allah (s.a.w) shall we treat (our ill)?' He said: 'Yes, O worshipers of Allah! Use remedies. For indeed Allah did not make a disease but He made a cure for it' - or - 'a remedy. Except for one disease.' They said: 'O Messenger of Allah (s.a.w)! What is it?' He said: 'Old age.'" Note: - Although there is no remedy for oldness, yet some other benefits of it has been mentioned in a hadith Qudsi, Almighty Allah Says “when an old man having white hair raises his hands before Me asking something, then I do not want to return them (these hands) empty” (Mishkatul-Masabih). Really, this is the great benefit for the old men that they can get any lawful thing form Allah SWT, and their sins will be forgiven and they will be entered in Paradise at the Day of Resurrection by the grace of Allah Almighty. May Allah give us power to do good actions following the commands of Allah Almighty, Ameen!
