(Advice of ‘Allaamah ‘Abdul Wahhaab Sha’raani [rahimahullah])

‘Allaamah ‘Abdul Wahhaab Sha’raani (rahimahullah) was a renowned ‘Aalim and saint who was born in Egypt in 898 A.H. and passed away in 973 A.H. He writes the following:

One of the bounties of Allah Ta‘ala which I enjoyed was the bounty of entrusting the upbringing of my children and my brothers to Allah Ta‘ala (i.e. I made the appropriate effort to raise them correctly, but trusted in Allah Ta‘ala to make my effort successful, instead of trying to force my children to submit to my will).

I judged and gauged their actions in the light of the Quraan Majeed and sunnah. Hence, when they carried out a praiseworthy action, I would tell them, “Thank Allah (for enabling you to carry out this action),” and when they carried out any disapproved action, I would tell them, “Repent to Allah Ta‘ala.”

Sprains, fractures and pulled muscles are among the most common injuries suffered by people. Unfortunately, in some instances, these injuries can take very long to heal, and in some cases, the patient never makes a complete recovery. Rather, they are left with a pain or weakness that continues to plague them.

In this regard, one very effective remedy is that of “Lep”. Lep is an urdu word that refers to “plaster” (i.e. the substance that is plastered onto walls). In this case, Lep refers to a medicinal paste which is “plastered” onto the site of the injury to assist in healing.
