A lot of sicknesses and disabilities, especially those associated with old age, can seem daunting—greying hair, wrinkles, forgetting where you parked the car, etc. Aging can bring about unique health issues. This book is comprised of ‘Remedies’ springing from the Qur’an which show that sicknesses and disabilities contain many benefits and instances of wisdom, and offer a true cure and consolation for both the physically sick and those wounded by unbelief and misguidance. These treatises were taken from the author’s Risale-i Nur Collection, a body of Qur’anic commentary exceeding six thousand pages in four volumes under the titles The Words, Letters, The Flashes Collection, and The Rays Collection; the book is verbatim from Flashes 25 and 26.

Bediuzzaman Said Nursi (1877-1960), is the last of the great saints, a spiritual figure of the greatest stature of modern times. Nursi inspired a religious movement that has played a vital role in the revival of Islam in Turkey and now numbers several millions of followers worldwide. Prominent scholars in contemporary Islamic studies and comparative spirituality examine the various facets of Nursi's spirituality as revealed in his magnum opus, Risale-i Nur, which began to take shape in the 1920s and is considered Nursi's deep reflection on the Qur’an. His biography by Sukran Vahide, also published by Islamic Book Trust, describes his life, works, and struggle, and places Bediuzzaman’s ideas and activities in a historical context.
