And the elder said :
`Do not worry if any disease of the body reaches you. Your Lord wants to try your body who are you to get upset? Doesn`t He take care of everything for you? Don`t you live separated of Him?
Endure it and pray Him to give you what it is necessary ; as this is His will.
Show strong patience and love
