Bahá’u’lláh is the man we follow, the man who has helped the world with positivity and peacefulness. We must all follow in his footsteps. He is true in his ways, and he does not lie to others. But what does the Bahai faith say when men and women need caring for the body? Well I’ve battled that exact question for quite some time, whether to follow medical help or to not. I do not know which to follow, which? After years of researching, and talking with many Bahai ministries regarding this topic I’ve finally come with a proper solution.
Bahai Instructs We Follow Medical Help
There was once a time I injured my shoulder, real bad. It was from a soccer injury when playing on the field with a couple of my friends. I didn’t know what to do specifically. Do I go about myself trying to heal my shoulder? Or do I go to the doctor and ask whether I need an ice pack for my shoulder. I really didn’t know what to do..so I called up my local Bahai ministry and asked them. They directed me to the teachings of Bahai regarding healing. I read a few passages, all from Bahá’u’lláh. I knew I needed to to go the doctor and check it out, Bahá’u’lláh said himself “Whatever competent physicians or surgeons prescribe for a patient should be accepted and complied with”. The doctor did tell me to use an shoulder ice pack, but the fact that many people in the Bahai faith misconstrue whether to follow medical advice baffles me. Bahaullah was a human, he went through the hardships and struggles we go through. How could you confuse his teachings where he says whether to go follow medical advice or not to, it’s simple. It only makes sense to go to the doctor and seek help when needed, they are experts.
That’s just my take on the Bahai system when it comes to the medical system. You can disagree, yes it’s a new form of life and religion. But when you need help, seek help from someone more experienced rather than yourself.
