Everyone shall taste death. And only on the Day of Resurrection shall you be paid your wages in full. And whoever is removed away from the Fire and admitted to Paradise, he indeed is successful. The life of this world is only the enjoyment of deception (a deceiving thing).
في الحرم المكي وقف أمام والده (الذي كان يدعي) لكي يحميه من الشمس. (ربي ارحمهما كما ربياني صغيرا) – سورة الإسراء In Mecca while his father was praying to Allah, he stood in front of him to protect him from the sun. "My Lord, have mercy upon them as they brought me up [when I was] small." 17:24
Quran’s Lesson - Surah Al-Ana’m 6, Verse 43, Part 7 Join Darussalam Publishers & Distributors فَلَوْلَا إِذْ جَاءَهُمْ بَأْسُنَا تَضَرَّعُوا وَلَٰكِنْ قَسَتْ قُلُوبُهُمْ وَزَيَّنَ لَهُمُ الشَّيْطَانُ مَا كَانُوا يَعْمَلُونَ When Our Torment reached them, why then did they not believe with humility? But their hearts became hardened, and Shaitan (Satan) made fair-seeming to them that which they used to do. پھر جب ان پر ہمارا عذاب آیا تو انہوں نے عاجزی کیوں اختیار نہ کی؟ لیکن ان کے دل سخت ہو گئے اور جو عمل وہ کرتے تھے (ان کو) شیطان نے ان کے لیے مزین (خوبصورت) بنا دیا۔ [Al-Quran 6:43]
Siwak (Miswak) Join Darussalam Publishers & Distributors We may also sense the greatness of the Prophet’s command to use the Miswak in his words: “The Siwak is purifying for the mouth and pleasing to the Lord.” (Narrated by Ahmad and Ibn Majah; Saheeh) The Prophet, peace and blessings of Allah be upon him, did not get up after a nap either at night or during the day without using the Siwak, and the Prophet, peace and blessings of Allah be upon him, urged his Ummah to use the Siwak all the time, when he said: “Were it not that it would be too hard for my Ummah, I would have commanded them to use the Siwak at the time of every prayer.” As is proved in the Saheehain, when the Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings of Allah be upon him, got up at night he would clean his mouth with the Siwak, and he also encouraged us to use the Siwak all the time, even when fasting. That is because of the great benefits that it offers to the mouth and teeth. These benefits include the following: (1) It kills germs. Research has proved that it kills off at least five types of disease-causing germs that are found in the mouth, the most important of which is the streptococcus bacteria which causes some types of rheumatic fever (Brown and Jacob, 1979). (2) It removes food remnants and yellowness from the teeth, and makes teeth shiny. (3) It purifies the mouth by killing germs and treats wounds and inflammation of the gums. (4) It prevents the growth of germs by increasing acidity in the mouth. (5) It removes plaque before it becomes hard and affects the tissues. (6) It prevents diseases of the mouth and teeth. (7) It has been proved that it effectively reduces sugar levels and has an anti-cancer effect.
