The Essence Of Ramadan

Stoori Khan

1

As we know, Ramadan is just around the corner and everyone is busy for it’s preparation i.e. Cleaning of the house, grocery shopping etc.

When Ramadan arrives, the female members will be more concerned about arranging menus and cooking a variety of delicious meals for themselves and their family as usual. All these arrangements are fine and totally normal as long as we don’t forget about the essence and the actual purpose of Ramadan i.e. Spiritual, Emotional and Physical purification.

Spiritual purification can be attained by indulging in lots of azkaar, ibadaat, duas and astaghfaar. Make sure that you are not overly exhausted due to meal planning and have some spare time to achieve this goal.
Male members, on the other hand should do the same, i.e. Spare some time and focus on the ibadah and also make sure that they don’t overburden the female members with their demands.

Book Review: Did Musa ST-ST- Stutter Too?

“Did Musa ST-ST-Stutter too?” is a motivational children’s book written by Keila Kaci and published by Prolance publishing.

This poetry book revolves around a child named Ibrahimi who makes an excuse to hide from school due to his speech problem. Ibrahimi has to present a speech in front of his whole class but, he is afraid to go to school because he thinks all his class fellows will make fun of him while he stutters during the speech.

His mother, being a wise woman, understands the whole situation and starts to tell him how our Nabi Musa (Prophet Moses) stuttered too but, he was given such a high rank by God. Not only this, but people used to follow his commands.

She further explains that Musa was also given physical strength but, he is known for his call to Allah by his speech.

She also teaches him to recite the dua (supplication) that Musa used to pray.

I love how this book conveys a vast message.

1) A wise and well-educated mother (both religiously and wordly) is very important for the good upbringing of children. A child may have a physical or mental disability but, only a good mother can make a successful person out of him/her.

2) Any person , whether a child or an adult, should never make fun of someone’s disability. Instead, they should encourage the person to do better. Children should be advised to be kind and considerate to their class mates.

3) A disability is not a punishment from Allah, it’s a test and blessed is the one who passes this test through patience.

So, you must know by now, how important is this book for your kid’s bookshelf? 😊

How To Have A Sound Sleep

People in this new era are having a hard time to sleep peacefully, specially at night even after the amount of household work they handle or the long tiring jobs that they do during the day time. I’ve seen many people being worried due to this problem.

Poor sleep may be due to many reasons including the excess use of mobile phones and social media at night, various thoughts about future running through their minds, insomnia or a restless sleeping environment.

Improper sleep or sleep deprivation may lead to various and sometimes, serious health issues which may hinder the ability to think and perform properly through the daily routines. That’s why, having a sound sleep is very important for the health and to perform the daily tasks properly. Here I will give you some tips to avoid distractions and to improve your sleep.

1) A neat and cosy bedroom is an important step in tackling sleep issues. Haphazard or noisy surroundings have a great effect on sleep. The senses are calmed when it’s in a peaceful environment so, make sure your sleeping area is well organized.

2) Turn off the TV, the lights and put away the mobile phone at least an hour before sleeping.

3) Advice the family members/roommates to avoid chatting in the same room where you sleep.

4) Let yourself and your mind relax. Ward off any unnecessary thoughts running through your mind.

5) An essential oil diffuser specifically that of lavender would prove to be an icing on the cake. Alternatively, lavender scented pillowcases are also available for this purpose.

Following these tips, you will be amazed how the quality of your sleep will improve and you will achieve a sound sleep without worrying about it any further.

In this book, the mother beautifully explains how the child was once a crawling baby but, now he has grown up and need to learn how to use the washroom by himself. Though, the parents will be there for him to help through the process.

I really liked this book. The first thing that caught my attention was its title. Then, when I read the book, I extremely appreciated the author for explaining the whole thing in such a poetic, interesting and sagacious way. Such educational books are very important for our generation so that they may be brought up properly.

The book even contains Islamic terms and duas (supplications) for children to teach them the process of “tahaara” (purity) in the light of religion.

I must say that it’s important to purchase this book for your growing children no matter which religion you follow. Every religion teaches purity 🙂
