A Hindu Arya man by the name of Mulawamal came to the Promised Messiah (as) to request prayers for his health. He had been suffering from tuberculosis for quite some time and his condition had become critical.
The Promised Messiah (as) records: “He came to me one day and wept bitterly in his despair. I was deeply affected by his distress and supplicated God the One on his behalf and as God had decreed his health, I immediately received the revelation (Arabic):
“We commanded the fire to become cool and safe.”
The Promised Messiah (as) would later see in a dream that he was pulling the Arya man out of his grave.
The Promised Messiah then assured the man and other Hindus who were living in that town that his health would be restored and that he would be granted a full recovery.
The supplication of the Promised Messiah (as) was enough to cure a man of a disease in a week which even in the 21st century takes 6 months to fully cure through various drugs. From this event we are reminded that God listens to his chosen people and helps them in extraordinary ways. Truly, the prayer of the Prophet Muhammad (saw) for the sick, “O Lord of the people, remove this pain and cure it, You are the one who cures and there is no one besides You who can cure, grant such a cure that no illness remains” highlights the significance of prayer and the trust the Promised Messiah had in God.
