I know handling kids can be over whelming, tiring and feels like a whole tornado inside your body...but I tell you mothers, you should always have a baby small enough to fill your arms, fix in your lap - one who only babbles, squeals n squeaks...because they are the ones who keep you sane too
Because Prophet (saws) asked us to… and he only asked us what he did himself. So consider it as a sunnah as well (not just the way of prophet (saw) but of so many companions, successors and so on…). I have never come across memorization of any specific surah/ayaat except for this. "If anyone learns by heart the first ten verses of the Surah al-Kahf, he will be protected from the Dajjal." [Muslim]
Few years back when I gave a brief presentation on this topic, it stirred quite a controversy among the listeners, who’d perhaps thought of the heart as no more than a mushy, bawling-over-love organ. But after years of studying Quran, Hadith, and Arabic, I stand my ground even more firmly: generation of a thinking is a feeling. I don’t have much scientific support for this but the hadith and the verses from Quran speak for themselves. I do hope that someday, someone will make an extensive scientific research on this topic.
Sometimes I just don't feel like living... not like a forever-not-living feeling! But I need a break, break from motherhood, break from wife-hood, break from simply being human. Break from the perpetual civil war that I am in which so many souls are fighting to survive, destroying each other in the process...
I’m sure that it’s an international issue, but I’m going to specifically discuss public washroom around the religious sanctities. Since tahara (cleanliness) is half our faith, but in my travels, it has become clear that people don’t understand how to behave in them, let alone taking care of tahara. Yes, it’s a fairly gross subject but this dormant “loo-phobia” you may have, could soon be defeated by nature hitting its panic button on you.
