From Imam Johari Abdul-Malik, the following news comes on Imam Siraj Wahhaj, one of the pillars of Muslims in America. May Allah give Imam Siraj quick and full recovery and shifa’ from whatever ailments that are bothering him, and may Allah make all his ailments a source of forgiveness and increase of his hasanaat. Please be sure to send a quick note of your good wishes to Imam Siraj. The following are exceprts. Please see entire post at this link.
Many people have asked me, “How is Imam Siraj? I heard he was in the hospital” (TRUE!).
Another person said, “I heard Imam Siraj is like on his death-bed” (FALSE!). He was in hospital for testing and stayed for observation and was later released.
Due to the number of phone calls, text messages, emails and conversations in mosques (masajid) in the city and around country, I wanted to share your concerns and to thank brothers and sisters for their dua.
I am not speaking on behalf Imam Siraj, his family or MANA. But the Imam has shared in semi-public settings what is going on with him and gave us some advice.
Recently, after feeling (as he says) ‘not right’ he went to the hospital. There he learned he has “High Blood Pressure”. His other health indexes are fine. The doctors are treating him and they have been adjusting his medication. Imam Siraj is taking the medication and adjusting his hectic work schedule to suit.
Send well wishes to:

Get Well Soon, Insha Allah.
Your Baby Brother,

How can we weigh the pros and cons of each of these choices? How soon should we sound the alarm and seek help? What do we do after picking one option or the other?
Haleh Banani holds a Master’s Degree in clinical psychology, and this TDC her session is dedicated to the factors one should take in making this choice.
