In Islam, it is recognized that some people may have disabilities or medical conditions that affect their ability to learn or perform certain tasks. These disabilities or conditions are not viewed as a punishment or a result of sin, but rather as a natural part of the human experience.
Islam does not specifically mention dyslexia by name, but it does recognize that individuals may have different abilities and challenges, and it encourages compassion and understanding towards those who may face difficulties. The Qur'an states: "And no soul earns (evil) but against itself, and no bearer of burden shall bear the burden of another" (6:164). This verse suggests that each individual is responsible for their own actions and that no one should be held accountable for the actions of others.
Therefore, it is likely that Islam would recognize dyslexia as a real illness that may present challenges for some individuals, and would encourage people to be understanding and supportive of those who have dyslexia. It is also important for Muslims to seek medical treatment and support for any medical condition, including dyslexia, in order to improve their quality of life and achieve their full potential.
