Advices for Expectant Mothers

When a woman has conceived, then she should practice on the following:  

1. Abstain from all types of sins, especially watching television (whether it is movies or even video clips), eating haraam, listening to gheebah (backbiting) or making gheebah, etc. It is also important to abstain from all sins when breastfeeding.

2. Engage in reciting the Quraan Majeed and making zikr. Also listen to the recitation of the Quraan Majeed and zikr. It is recorded that Moulana Muhammad Yahya (rahimahullah), who is the father of Shaikhul Hadeeth, Moulana Muhammad Zakariyya (rahimahullah), had memorized approximately ½ a para of the Quraan Majeed while still breastfeeding. The reason for this was the excessive recitation of Quraan Shareef that he was exposed to.

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.
