A short talk given by Muhammad Raheem Bawa Muhaiyaddeen, may God be pleased with him, on June 2, 1979.
M. R. Bawa Muhaiyaddeen: My brothers and sisters, my dear friends who are doctors, you have all studied medicine to help the general public, is that not so? It is true that a God exists who created life and who protects all living things; He is a doctor for living things. His medical work is performed with love, with compassion and affection. Because He understands the hearts of His people and the clarity in each heart, He provides treatment for the sickness of the soul, of the body, the eyes, for all the diseases in our intentions and thoughts, He heals all this with His love and His compassion. He is a Ruler who heals millions and millions of different illnesses according to the needs of each heart.
He is a healer and a doctor for all living things. He is God who is the friend and companion. His qualities, His actions, His conduct and His love are His treatment – His love is His medicine, He is the remedy for a patient’s love and faith.
You who are called doctors are, therefore, His representatives. Even if someone should beat you, confront you or scold you, even if an enemy should confront you, you must act as God’s vice-regents. Have perfect faith and certitude in this one God, have faith in Him, make God Himself the healer, be His assistant, His vice-regent. If you think of yourself as His assistant, He will be the completion in your heart, His qualities will be complete in your heart, His actions will be complete in your heart, His love will be complete in your heart.
If you are in that state, when an operation is necessary He will be the surgeon, you will be the instrument, like a scalpel or a pair of scissors. You will be the instrument in everything He does, but God alone will be the healer. Your love must embrace the patient as if he or she were your friend, and you have to understand the patient’s heart and qualities with that love before your treatment can help.
Medicine and treatments do not heal illness, your qualities heal illness; healing occurs through your love, sickness is healed through compassion. The remedy in your heart will heal a patient. Your faith in God protects you, your soul and your patient, this is the wealth which protects you.
My precious brothers and sisters who are doctors, who are the life within my life, who are supposed to be the messengers of God, you who protect life and help living creatures, please drink in the qualities of God which are the most essential remedy, the most essential healer, the most efficient treatment. If you have this remedy within you, you will be able to protect all living creatures, you will be vice-regents of God and His messengers, you will be doctors and healers of those who come to you suffering with illnesses of the mind, or in pain because of some disease. Treat them by understanding the state in which they come to you: the treatment you offer by understanding their qualities is the right treatment.
My dear doctors, there is something you have to understand; you should negate your ego, you must believe that God is the healer, God is the One who acts, you are the instrument. Whatever race, religion or color the patient happens to be, you must have compassion, do not display or feel any sense of difference because of your religion, your race or your color; such differences are filled with danger.
This is what you who are doctors must do; if you plant faith in God in your hearts, if you act with truth and wisdom and behave with the qualities of God, this is excellent treatment. In this state, if you accept human beings as human beings, if you become leaders among men and women, if you make God the healer, you can treat all the illnesses of your fellow beings very easily. You will be able to understand suffering of the mind and suffering of the body, no matter the illness. Human beings can have four thousand, four hundred and thirty-eight diseases of the nerves, eighteen thousand diseases of the brain, twenty-one diseases of bodily fluids, they have diseases of the marrow, diseases of tissues, bacterial infection, cellular diseases, diseases caused by viruses, diseases caused by energies, they can have mental diseases, diseases of the eyes, of the nerves in the ear, diseases of the heart, diseases caused by eighty-four kinds of gas, by ninety-six kinds of madness, they have diseases in the seven layers of skin, in the pores, diseases of the kidney, congestive diseases, so many, many diseases. You will be able to understand them all and treat them by using the right qualities, you will be able to mingle God with the medicine. If you mix God’s qualities into the medicine and give this treatment with wisdom and with good conduct, that is a remedy to cure the illnesses of this world, a remedy to foster the growth of your patients’ souls, so that they will have peace.
My precious brothers and sisters, if you were to act this way you would eliminate millions and millions of diseases in the world, then mankind would be at peace, you would be at peace, everyone would live in a state of peace.
Please try to do this, all of you. You will be the vice-regents of God if you are in this state, you will be the friends who protect all mankind. Think about it. This is the right kind of treatment, this is what doctors must do. My brothers and sisters who are doctors, this is what you have to do. If you offer treatment this way, in your heart you will understand every illness, and if you understand the illness this way your treatment will heal the sick.
May you achieve clarity with the qualities of God, the grace of God and the love of God. Ameen.
