I am a neo-Muslim, there are still answers I am seeking. Truth be told the journey of finding the truth is odious, however, the benefits far outweigh the meager pains.
Everything that happens to anyone is Allah's decree, so if I get a disease such as cancer, there could be few logical reasons as to why I got the dreaded disease.
1) I was irresponsible or its genetic, i.e it was not by luck. In that case, rationally I should go for a cure.
2) It was by luck. Unexplained through reason. I am being punished. In that case getting a cure means escaping the scourge, should I seek cure in this case? One could argue yes sure, you can repent later or you should have faith in Allah but statistically its very rare that out of the grace of Lord someone is cured or that by repenting later I am doing anything more wise or better.
Should one refuse medication when one believes he is being punished by Allah?
