‘Abdur Rahmaan bin Ebrahim Fihri (rahimahullah) reports:

There was once a man who came to a governor to ask for his help. However, when he arrived at the governor’s house, he was surprised to find him in sajdah, imploring Allah Ta‘ala in du‘aa. On seeing the powerful governor begging Allah Ta‘ala, he remarked, “When this man requires someone else for assistance, then how can I turn to him for assistance? Why do I not present my needs before the One besides whom no one else can fulfil my needs.”

It so happened that the governor overheard his remark. Hence, when he lifted his head (from sajdah), he instructed his attendants, “Bring the man to me.” When the man was brought into his presence, he instructed, “Give him ten thousand.” He then addressed the man and said, “That Being alone gave this to you whom I was imploring in sajdah, and to whom you resorted and returned.”

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.

What to Play?

It’s often said that children are like ‘tape recorders’. They have the uncanny ability to repeat words or statements that they hear, often verbatim, and sometimes at the most embarrassing moments. That is why people are often cautioned to watch what they say in front of their children, as the tape is always turning and cannot be switched off or erased thereafter (read more on this topic here).

To understand the effect of the ‘tape recorder’, think of those children whose parents use different forms of media to occupy or calm them. In most cases, these children, after some time, are able to sing entire songs or nursery rhymes from the beginning until the end, word for word, with almost no mistakes!

Hence, the question is, “What if we harness this unique and powerful ability of a child and use it for the benefit and empowerment of the child?” In other words, what if we carefully select certain things that we want the child to hear, and ensure that the child hears these things over and over again? If we do this, we will certainly succeed in entrenching certain vital and important things in the child’s brain, thus taking advantage of the child’s natural ability to equip him in life.

Avoiding the Avenues of Attraction

As discussed previously, when the need arises for a Muslim woman to emerge from her home, she should do so with complete hayaa, where she is most concealed and attracts the least amount of attention to herself. However, we should bear in mind that there are different avenues of attraction and ways through which attention can be drawn to a woman.

One avenue, of which we are all aware, is that of clothing. Insha-Allah, a separate article will soon be prepared to address this topic. Nevertheless, two pertinent avenues of attraction and attention are:

- Perfume – how often does it not happen that a person’s fragrance is perceived before the person is even heard or seen? Hence, perfume is indeed a potent way for one to draw attention to himself or herself – especially as perfumes are designed to arouse feelings of attraction in a person. Thus, it is impermissible for a woman to apply any perfume or fragrance when leaving the home.
