We are once again on the threshold of Ramadhaan – a month that is well known for its spiritual benefits. However, the act of fasting is replete with health benefits as well. Abu Hurairah (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) narrates that Rasulullah said, “Wage jihaad and earn booty, fast and acquire health, and travel and earn wealth.” (Majma‘uz Zawaaid #5070)

From this hadeeth, we learn that fasting enhances one’s health. Furthermore, it is a well known fact among the Hakeems (physicians) that overeating leads to sicknesses, and fasting is a remedy for many illnesses. Haarith bin Kaldah, the physician of the Arabs, was once asked, “What is the best medicine?” He replied, “Necessity i.e. hunger”. Fasting is a way of giving the body time to reorganize itself and serves as an accepted treatment in many therapies.

Du‘aa for the Parents and Newborn

Islam is a Deen that teaches us to love for others that which we love for ourselves. Hence, when our friends or relatives are blessed with a child, we should be happy for them and try to increase their joy. We should congratulate them on the blessing that they have received from Allah Ta‘ala and make du‘aa for them, as du‘aa is one of the greatest gifts that a person can give the next.

Furthermore, doing so will not only strengthen our ties and create love among us, but will also bring us barakah as when a person makes du‘aa for the next person, Allah Ta‘ala accepts that same du‘aa for the one who made it. Thus, a very effective method of making our children obedient and pious is to make du‘aa that Allah Ta‘ala grant others pious and obedient children.
