Answered by Mawlana Ilyas Patel
How do I deal with a father who complains about destiny with regards to his back pain?
Turn to Allah
The Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) said, “Seek closeness and be steadfast, and in all that afflicts the believer there is atonement, even a thorn that pricks him, and the hardship he suffers.” [Tirmidhi]
