Symptoms of weak faith
Shaykh Al Albani رحمه الله
Tightness in the chest, mood swings and depression,which weigh a man down and make him quick to complain about the slightest thing, these all are symptoms of weak faith. A person easily gets upset with the people around him, and no longer has any tolerance. The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) described faith when he said, “Eemaan is patience and tolerance”
"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
WHERE IS THIS FROM ?
It’s from “la source des femmes”
THERE IS NOTHING IN THE QU’RAN THAT SAYS WOMEN’S SOLE PURPOSE IS FOR OBEYING AND PROCREATING.
We are allowed to inherit and own property and businesses, and we are allowed to CHOOSE our husbands instead of having them foisted upon us in arranged marriages. WE ARE ALSO ALLOWED TO PARTICIPATE IN COMBAT.
I’ve read the Qu’ran COVER TO COVER and there’s nothing God says about women being LESS than men. In fact, God IMPLORES men to treat women as equals. Probably because God knew men have a tendency to foul things up and has to remind them that WOMEN ARE ALSO PRECIOUS CREATIONS OF HIS DIVINE WILL.
-huffs and puffs-
Sorry. I was in my feelings. But this touches my nerves a lot when people misinterpret Islam as some misogynistic religion. Nothing could be further from the truth.
