Khalilamaryam
Islam and health

"The basic principles of medicine are three: prevention, maintaining good health, and removing harmful substances from the body.

Allah has mentioned them all together, to His Prophet and his ummah in three places in His Book.

1) He prevented the sick person from using water lest it harm him, as He says:

“And if you are ill, or on a journey, or one of you comes after answering the call of nature, or you have been in contact with women (by sexual relations) and you find no water, perform Tayammum* with clean earth and rub therewith your faces and hands (Tayammum)”

(Qur’an, al-Nisa’ 4:43)

Allah allowed the sick person to do tayammum to protect him, just as He permitted it to the one who has no water.

2) Allah says concerning the maintenance of good health:

“and whoever is ill or on a journey, the same number [of days which one did not observe Sawm (fasts) must be made up] from other days”

(Qur’an, al-Baqarah 2:185)

The traveller is allowed to break his fast during Ramadaan, to protect his health lest the combination of fasting and the difficulties of travel weakens him and affects his health.

3) And Allah said concerning the removal of harmful things by shaving the head of the person in ihraam** (for Hajj or ‘Umrah):

“And whosoever of you is ill or has an ailment in his scalp (necessitating shaving), he must pay a Fidyah (ransom) of either observing Sawm (fasts) (three days) or giving Sadaqah (charity — feeding six poor persons) or offering sacrifice (one sheep)”

(Qur’an, al-Baqarah 2:196)

So if a person has an ailment in his scalp when he is in ihraam, he is permitted to shave his head and remove the harmful thing or the bad substance that is causing lice to develop – as happened to Ka’b ibn ‘Ajrah – or if it is causing sickness to develop.

These three matters are the basic principles of medicine. We have mentioned an example of each one in order to point out the blessing of Allah to His slaves in preventing sickness, protecting their health and removing harmful substances from them, as a mercy and kindness towards His slaves, for He is the Most Kind, Most Merciful.

-Ibn al Qayyim, (Zaad al-Ma’aad, 1/164, 165)

*Tayammum: ritual ablution/purifying oneself for prayer using dry dust or rocks.

**Ihraam: entering a ritual state

(via poeticislam)

Sometimes world
deeply wounded you.
Tearing you apart
like scatter pieces
in the clouds.

Whenever
your life turn to dark.
You pour tears
like raindrops
in the sky.

To be love
is not bad,
to be hated
is so sad.
Who I am?
Allahu Aalam

khalilamaryam

Forgive others,
then forgive yourself.
For that you find
peace inside your heart.

Love others,
but love yourself first.
For that you find
respect and happiness.

Hate no one,
and never blame yourself.
For all the pain you got,
you’ve learnt to your past.

Strive to become better,
for the sight of your creator.
but not for those people
who makes you fall…

ibtasem:

If you search for Allah,
He will make Himself
visible for you.

You won’t see Him,
but you will recognize
His power and mercy.

So make a step
towards Him,
and He will come closer.

I promise that
you won’t be lost,
if you call upon Al-Wajib,
The Finder.

Isn’t it beautiful
When you smile at people
You don’t even know,

Isn’t it beautiful
When you help someone
Even if the person didn’t asked for,

Isn’t it beautiful
To tell someone he/she is pretty
Even if their faces are full of tears,

Isn’t it beautiful
To bring someone to laugh
Even if the person feels sad,

And Isn’t it beautiful
When people are doing the same to you
Just for the reason
to make each other happy.

dawat-us-salafiyyah:

Ibn al-Qayyim, may Allah have mercy upon him:

"Verily the life of man is in the life of his heart and his soul. And there is no life in the heart except by knowing its Creator, having love for Him, worshipping Him solely, turning to Him in times of need, and seeking tranquility with His remembrance. And he who loses this life has lost all good. Even if he attempts to substitute (this loss) with all that is in the world. For verily not even all of the world together would be able to replace this life. And verily for everything that a slave loses there is a substitute, but the one who loses Allah will never find anything to replace Him."

The Zionist media says there should be ceasefire in Palestine ! Damn them. Cease fire is between two armies, two countries — NOT between a terrorist state and besieged surrounded hunted population. The land Israel is created upon is stolen from Palestinians. The water Israelis drink is stolen from Palestinians. There is NO war in Palestine. It is State robbery, state terrorism and Genocide of Muslims whose lands, lives, honor and children have been stolen by the Zionist Jews. If these helpless, hunted Muslims try to resist, they call it terrorism ! Remember this — Resistance to Tyranny and oppression and occupation is called Freedom struggle NEVER terrorism !

Sub’hanAllah, the event today touched my heart so much.
Not a dry eye in the hall.

We have a responsibility, the people of the Ummah. Our brothers and sisters are being butchered there and how do we respond?
Sub’hanAllah, there is awareness, everywhere but the injustice continues.

Of course…

GAZA…
Do you afraid of losing thing,
Losing someone you love.
Do you ask why you face hardship,
Do you ask why you live in sorrow.
Losing hope and wanna give up?

Think those family, people of #gaza
It was a nightmare, blood sheds
Bomb everywhere ,
Lots of death bodies.
Crying, bleeding screaming,
Do they ask why?
Allahu Akbar 
Alhamdulillah they never give up 
They believe everything will be over.
In shaa Allah…

Take courage from the people of #gaza
#pray for them wherever you are brother and sister in #Islam

May Allah heal you and be with you #agaza. Aameen

so much blood on my dash, I can’t see it anymore. I’m feeling nauseous by seeing all these people and can’t bear to see it anymore. I can’t imagine how people in Palestine are surviving seeing things like that everyday, I can’t imagine the pain, I can’t.

storiesofthesahabah:

“Gaza was bombarded with 273 airstrikes yesterday (8th July). That’s an average of 11 an hour. Gaza is about 25 miles long and 4 miles wide, with a population of 1.7 million crammed into that tiny space. It is under Israeli occupation and Israeli siege. Hospitals estimate they will run out of resources to treat the wounded in about two days. Electricity is intermittent. Gaza has no army, air force or navy. Israel is the fourth largest military power in the world. Resistance to occupation is allowed under international law. Israel’s occupation, siege and collective punishment of Gaza is not.”
