If Allah touch thee with affliction,
none can remove it but He. (Qur'an 6:17)

The above verse forms the basis of healing in the Sufi tradition. The entries in this section are excerpted from various of Shaikh Chishtis’ books and lectures. They are specific means to attain a true health of the body, mind, and soul. For these suggestions to be put into practice successfully requires only the state of being known as tawwakul Allah (trust in Almighty Allah). To inspire the reader's confidence in the suggestions which follow, examples of various Sufi personages past and present are cited. All of these persons have derived their own example and inspiration from that of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (s.a.w.s.), whose life has been aptly described as "the Qur'an lived."
