With the global outbreak of coronary heart disease, the question may have arisen in the minds of some Shiites and those who believe in the existence of the Imam of the Age (pbuh) whether he may also suffer from this disease? Also, if he gets sick, do they see a doctor?
According to verse 110 of Surah Al-Kahf, along with the generalities of some other verses, it is inferred that the Holy Prophet and the infallible Imams (pbuh) and especially the Imam of the Age (pbuh), with all their existential greatness and infallibility, are human beings of their own kind. Being human and being human and having a body, they have human desires and needs such as illness and boredom on the body.
Occurrence of the disease in people due to causes and factors such as lack of health and personal care, bad mood due to lack of information and observance of healthy nutrition, atonement for sins, spiritual promotion, trials and tests, as well as special divine wisdom. Factors, the first three factors are forbidden in the right of the prophets and divine testators (PBUH); But the second three factors can be an acceptable factor in some of their illnesses and troubles, such as illness and physical and mental illness, and there is no intellectual or religious limitation.
At the same time, and in answer to another question, the Infallible Imam, who on the one hand has great knowledge of the body and on the other hand has the power to occupy the world of space and place, does not need a doctor; Because he is a skilled physician and a physician.
Therefore, and in accordance with the results of this research, God's will is to preserve the Imam of the Age (pbuh) in order to extend the rule of divine justice to the world at the appropriate time, which only God knows; Therefore, he will not suffer from a deadly disease that will lead to his death before his reappearance; However, their suffering from ordinary diseases is not far from the expectation of reason and religion, and the treatment of such diseases is conceivable by the knowledge of the Imam and esoteric power and with the healing of God Almighty, and this matter has no intellectual or religious exception.
