_Beware of sadness (احذروا الحزن)_

· Ibn Al Qayyim, may Allaah have mercy on him, said the word (الحزن) – (sadness) does not appear in the Qur'aan except in the form of forbidding it (ولا تهنو ولا تحزنوا) or in the form of negating it (فلاخوف عليهم ولا هم يحزنون).

And the reason for this is because there is no benefit for having sadness in the heart. The most beloved thing to the shaytaan is to make the believing slave sad by taking him off track.

· The Prophet (ﷺ) sought refuge in Allaah Ta'aala from sadness.
(اللهم إني أعوذ بك من الهم والحزن)

· Ibn Al Qayyim said: Sadness weakness the heart and diminishes determination and wanting to go forward. And there is nothing more beloved to the shaytaan than sadness of a believer.

· For this reason, be happy, optimistic and think good about Allaah Ta'aala. Have trust in what Allaah  Ta'aala is able to do and depend on Him. You will find happiness and pleasure in all situations.

· Ibn Al Qayyim said: Don’t ruin your happiness with worry, and don’t ruin your mind with pessimism. Don’t ruin your success with deception and don’t ruin the optimism of others by destroying it. Don’t ruin your day by looking back at yesterday.

· If you think about your situation, you will find that Allaah Ta'aala has given you things without asking, so have trust in Allaah that He doesn’t prevent anything you want except that there is goodness for you.

· You could be sleeping and the doors of the heavens are being opened with dua’as being made on your behalf, SubHaan-Allaah: Perhaps from someone poor whom you helped, or someone sad whom you brought joy, or someone passing by and you smiled to him, or someone in distraught and you removed it...
So don’t ever underestimate any good deeds.

· One of the righteous predecessors said: I make du’aa to Allaah for something I want, and if He gives it to me then I’m happy once and if He doesn’t give it to me then I’m happy ten times because the first was my choice and the second was Allaah’s choice.

· As Sa’ady, may Allaah have mercy on him, said: life is short so don’t shorten it with worries, grief, and sadness.

· So be the owner of a heart that breathes happiness and satisfaction.

May Allaah Tabarakah Wa Ta'aala grant us all true happiness, contentment of heart and good Taqdeer.

Advise from a Medical Doctor to women in 2020

A medical doctor decided to share some words of advise to ladies via WhatsApp. The advise are simple and straightforward. Please share to every woman out there so they can get healthier and better in 2020.

1. You can not finish all the house chores in one day. Those who did are stressly sick and some are buried already.

2. Please create time to rest, it is not a sin to sit down , put up your legs on the table and pick popcorn while watching TV. 

3. Please sleep if need be that headache will go. Those who refuse to take vacation, or leave, or time out or rest time, their families are missing them because they have gone untimely to their maker.

4. Stop taking sedatives to sleep, you are destroying your brain and organs. At a point you will begin to forget things. Relax the brain , worry less, think less, laugh more , smile more. Everything will pass with time. 

5. Sometimes go and sit outside quietly on your own, do nothing say nothing , just admire Gods handiwork, breath in fresh air calmly. Hurry not.

6. Stand by your mirror smile to yourself, laugh , dance sing, that turns on positive aura around you so you can glow.

7. Go buy yourself a snack or two or drink non-Alchoholic  wine if you choose to do so. Just do something for yourself even if hubby does that for you so you off load the things in your head.

8. Get necessary home gadgets to ease your work in order to avoid stress. Stress is the highest silent killer of women.

9. If you are not feeling well say it , do something about it, go to health centre, hospital or call a nearby nurse, do not sit around waiting for hubby to buy drugs. He may come back late , your life matters .

10. Check your blood pressure and sugar level occasionally, whether you are sick or not. It has saved a lot of women in the past. Trust me on this.

Remember to share with all the women you know. We all will enjoy 2020 in good health and abundance.
