Among the trials that truly tests the faith and patience of an individual is illness, meaning suffering from something that befalls oneself causing illness or a part of the body feeling unwell. Let it be known that there are blessings or goodness behind the trial of illness. Among them, if the person is willing and patient in facing the illness, thus they will gain blessings and forgiveness from Allah the Almighty. These matters were among the highlights of yesterday's dawn talk held during the "Masjidku Ma'mur, Negara Berkat" Programme at Omar 'Ali Saifuddien Mosque in the capital.
