Allah has only made harm in that which transgresses the honor of one’s brother. That is what is sinful. They asked Oh! Rasoolullah ﷺ is there any sin if we do not seek treatment?’ Nabi ﷺ replied: ‘Seek treatment, O slaves of Allah! For Allah does not create any disease but He also creates with it the cure, except for old age.’ They asked, Oh! Rasool Allah ﷺ, what is the best thing that a person may be given?’ He said: ‘Good manners”.
