The Holy Prophet of Islam (peace be upon him and his progeny) said:
ما أَنْزَلَ اللّهُ مِنْ داء إلاّ جَعَلَ لَهُ دَواء
God has not created any disease unless he has created a remedy for it.1
The world in which we live is a series of actions and reactions. For every negative power there is a corresponding positive and corrective power which should be found and used. Continuation of our life is the effect of balance in these powers. There is neither an incurable corporeal disease, nor is there any social problem that cannot be solved. These who assume that certain complex problems have no solution or that some diseases have no cure, neglect this important fact that in essence there is no such thing as an incurable disease.
Therefore, one should not give up. One should persevere and keep on working on the life’s intractable issues with patience and tenacity until a solution is found.
