(A good book that was given to me by a friend when she came back from performing her Haj last year.)
Narrated by Sahihan that the Messenger of Allah(peace be upon him) said "Allah has not sent down a disease except that He has also sent down its cure"
At-Tarmidhi narrated that 'Abdullah bin Mihsan Al-Ansari said..The Messenger of Allah(peace be upon him) said : "He who reaches the morning while health in his body, safe in his residence and having his day's sustenance, will be as if the entire life of this world was granted to him."
In addition, Imam Ahmad narrated that Abu Bakr As-Siddiq said, I heard the Messenger of Allah(peace be upon him) said, "ask Allah for certainty and good health, for indeed, no one will have a better possession after certainty of Faith than good health."
