IslamQA: On being unable to read

Brother Ikram, I was reading your IslamQA page and I came across that you were unable to read. I also could not read for some time. What did you do to recover from that? I am now able to read but it’s still overwhelming for me. Can you share what you did?

Sorry about your situation. I couldn’t read due to a number of conditions I suffer from. I found the right treatment after experimenting with hundreds of supplements and going to multiple medical professionals. If you email me at then inshaAllah I can suggest various things you could try.

And God knows best.
