How to stop Diarrhea (Loose watery Motions)


How to stop Diarrhea
(Loose watery Motions)

References from (1) Holy Quran [وَإِذَا مَرِضْتُ فَهُوَ يَشْفِينِ(80/26الشعراء)]
(2) Hadith Books any of these 3 Bukhari, Muslim, AbuDawud
(3) [Medicine of Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم)] Ibn Qayyim Al-Jawziyyah
 (4) Tibb-e-Nabwi- Jalalu-Din Abdur-Rahman As-Suyuti
and (5) various Medical Books / Magazines etc.

Experts advice (1) Identify which foods and fluids are bothersome to you (2) Eat Less (3) Sit/relax after you eat 10-15 minutes (4) Drink sports drinks (sugar and salt) (5) Both for adults and specially for Children give BRAT diet (Bananas, Rice, Apples, and Toast)  
                                                   
Recommended foods to eat –
     (1a) Plenty of fluids -Diarrhea dehydrates your body. To prevent dehydration, you need to  drink plenty of  C L E A R  liquids. (Water, fruit juices, and  sports drinks). Make your own sports drinks by adding a teaspoon of salt to 1 liter of apple juice. A warm or normal room temperature drink is better than a cold drink. Try to increase your fluid intake to at least (1 to 1 ½  Liter) per hour.
 (1b) Lemon Juice / citrous juice cuts diarrhea (Tibb-e-Nabwi- Elgood page 35/161)
       (2a) Mild foods (Bananas, boiled potatoes, Salty broth or eat salted crackers, dry toast)  Stick to mild foods that won't aggravate your stomach, like crackers, bananas, dry toast, clear broth soups, and unseasoned rice. For proteins eat boiled egg, Baked, chicken (skinless)  and plain boiled potatoes. Foods that contain potassium and fiber include mashed or boiled potatoes and bananas.
       (2b) Old and grilled cheese heats the stomach and is beneficial in cases of ulcers and diarrhoea. Fire makes it milder, softer and better tasting and scented. Salted cheese on other hand is less nutritious and is bad for the stomach and the intestines. [Medicine of Prophet (صلى  الله  عليه  وسلم)]  Ibn Qayyim Al-Jawziyyah Page 375 of 652)

         (2c) Eat Fiberous diet.(Barley , brown rice, whole grains are good sources of insoluble fiber - Cook the grains in a light chicken or miso broth to help replace lost salts. Fiber can help absorb water and firm up stools. This can slow down diarrhea. Another good source of fiber is Cooked carrots (whole or mashed).
(20/23 المؤمنون) وَشَجَرَةً تَخْرُجُ مِن طُورِ سَيْنَاءَ تَنبُتُ بِالدُّهْنِ وَصِبْغٍ لِّلْآكِلِينَ
And a tree (olive) that springs forth from Mount Sinai, that grows (produces) oil, and (it is a) relish for the eaters. (Surah Al-Mumenoon 23/20)
        2d) Green olives strengthen stomach, black olive are bad for stomach. ((Tibb-e-Nabwi- Elgood page 57/161)
(سورة النحل  16 / 69) يَخْرُجُ مِن بُطُونِهَا شَرَابٌ مُّخْتَلِفٌ أَلْوَانُهُ فِيهِ شِفَاءٌ لِّلنَّاسِ
“There comes forth from their bellies, a drink of varying colour wherein is healing for men. Verily, in this is indeed a sign for people who think. (Quran Surah Al-Nahl 16/69)
2e) Honey- Narrated Abu Said: A man came to the prophet and said, 'My brother has got loose motions. The Prophet said, Let him drink honey." The man again (came) and said, 'I made him drink honey but that made him worse.' The Prophet said, 'Allah has said the Truth, and the abdomen of your brother has told a lie." (Bukhari 71/614, Muslim 026/5492)
3)  Oral rehydration solutions(ORS) Electrolyte- Mix electrolyte powder in water and drink 3-4 times/day. They are dissolved in water and replace salt, glucose and other important minerals that are lost in dehydration.
3a) Over-the-counter (OTC) medications include loperamide
(Imodium) and bismuth subsalicylate (Pepto-Bismol, Kaopectate). “These are reasonable to use on occasion and have the great advantage of not requiring a doctor’s prescription,” However, they should not be used for more than two days. If the diarrhea still lasts for more than 2 days consult doctor.
3b) Other treatment is use
prescription medicines, such as
       (a) diphenoxylate (
Lomotil) (b) Octreotide, a prescription medicine that might be given to people with severe diarrhea
Things to Avoid diarrhea. (Temporarily)

                broast), or spicy foods.

Totally unacceptable Unforgivable Sin is "SHIRK"


Absolutely unforgivable Sin is  “Shirk”
                                       Totally unacceptable act is Shirk
                                 False deities have no power to harm or benefit

The term Shirk means associating partners with Allah, and the related term mushrik is applied to someone guilty of such polytheistic association. Ash-Shirk ul-Akbar takes one outside the fold of Islam. The opposite of Tawhid (doctrine of Oneness of God) is expressed by the Arabic term Shirk (polytheism) derived from the root Sh-r-k which conveys the notion of “sharing” or “partnerships.” The word Sharik (plural shurakaa) means “partner” or “associate.” It encompasses far more than the more blatant (obvious) forms of idolatry and denial of Allah’s Unity. Some examples of Shirk ad Du’a (invoking or supplicating to a false deity besides Allah) are given. False deities have no power, Allah has all powers.
1)   Say( O Mohammed to mankind) How do you worship besides Allah something which has no power either to harm or benefit you”,
 
(Quran Al-Maidah 5/76)

2
) And do not invoke besides Allah that which neither benefits you nor harms you, for if you did, then indeed you would be of the wrongdoers.'  (Quran Yunus 10/106)

3)  
And if Allah should touch you with adversity (hardship), there is no remover of it except Him. And if He touches you with good – then He is over all things competent. (Quran Al-Anam 6/17)

4)  Say, "Shall we invoke instead of Allah that which neither benefits us nor harms us and be turned back on our heels after Allah has guided us?  ( Quran Al-Anam 6/71)

False deities have no power to harm or benefit

5) Say, "Then who could prevent Allah at all if He intended for you harm or intended for you benefit? (Quran Al-Fath 48/11) 

6)  
Say, "I possess not for myself any harm or benefit except what Allah should will.  (Quran Yunus 10/49)
7) Say, "I hold not for myself [the power of] benefit or harm, except what Allah has willed. (Quran Al-Araf 7/188)    

8)
Say, "Have you then taken besides Him allies not possessing [even] for themselves any benefit or any harm?" (Quran Ar-Rad 13/16)

9)
  He(Ibrahim) said, "Do they hear you when you supplicate? Or do they benefit you, or do they harm?" (Quran Ash-Shuaraa 26/72-73)
 
10) Should I take other than Him [false] deities [while], if the Most Merciful intends for me some adversity, their intercession will not avail me at all, nor can they save me? (Quran Yasin-36/23)  
  11) Did they not see that it could not return to them any speech [i.e., response] and that it did not possess for them any harm or benefit?  (Quran Ta-Ha - 20/89)

12)
Say, "Invoke those you have claimed [as gods] besides Him, for they do not possess the [ability for] removal of adversity from you or [for its] transfer [to someone else]."
(Quran Al-Israa / Bani Israeel 17/56)
13) Allah says “That is only Satan who frightens [you] (to fear his Awliyaa) his supporters. So fear them not, but fear Me, if you are [indeed] believers” (Quran Al-i-Imran 3/175)  

14) 
Say, "Indeed, I do not possess for you [the power of] harm or right direction." (Quran Al-Jin  72/21)
  15)   But they have taken besides Him gods which create nothing, while they are created, and possess not for themselves any harm or benefit and possess not [power to cause] death or life or resurrection.  (Quran Al-Furqan 25/3)

16)  
Narrated Abdullah (RA)The Prophet (s.a.w.) said one statement and I said another. The Prophet said "Whoever dies while still invoking anything other than Allah as a rival to Allah, will enter Hell (Fire)." And I said, "Whoever dies without invoking anything as a rival to Allah, will enter Paradise."(Hadith Bukhari 6/24)

Cough remedy How to stop coughing in 3 to 4 Minutes?

Cough remedy How to stop coughing in 3 to 4 Minutes?
References from (1) Holy Quran, (2) Hadith ,
(3) [Medicine of Prophet (صلى  الله  عليه  وسلم)] Ibn Qayyim Al-Jawziyyah
 (4) Tibb-e-Nabwi- Jalalu-Din Abdur-Rahman As-Suyuti
and (5) various Medical Books etc.

اَعُوْذُ بِاللّٰہِ مِنَ الشَّیْطَانِ الرَّجِیْمِ ۔ بِسْمِ اللّٰہِ الرَّحْمٰنِ الرَّحِیْمِ
 (سورة الشعراء  26 / 80) وَإِذَا مَرِضْتُ فَهُوَ يَشْفِينِ
"And when I am ill, it is He who(Allah) cures me"
Two Types of Coughs-There are two primary types of coughs.(1) Dry (2) Productive  
(1) A dry, hacking, cough is It can be caused by allergies, dry air, dusty environment, a random tickle at the back of your throat that is caused by the aftermath of a cold.

(2) A productive cough is one in which you are coughing up phlegm or mucous as your body needs to rid itself of the gunk (filthy, dirty, sticky material) that’s in your chest/lungs.

 What is Phlegm or mucus” (بلغم) a thick yellowish liquid that is produced in the nose and throat especially when a person has a cold (Phlegm tends to collect and congest in the chest and throat and is usually expelled through coughing) Phlegm contains the bacteria, virus or inflammatory cells produced in response to an infection. In addition to infections such as the common cold, flu and bronchitis. Phlegm can be caused by an allergic reaction to irritants such as in asthma and hay fever, damaged vocal cords, and excessive smoking.

Four Body parts are involved directly in Cough
(1) Throat (2) Nose (3) Lungs (4) Mouth

Two Types of Cough syrups
(1) Expectorant-An expectorant can help loosen mucus
(2) Suppressant- Cough Suppressant blocks the cough reflex and reduces the urge to cough.

Question (1) How to stop coughing in 3 to 4 Minutes?
Answerà Chew raw ginger pieces or slices.
Ginger-Zanjabil (زنجبيل)  (ادرک) Ginger is a natural decongestant and has been used to fight off throat and respiratory tract infections for ages. Also, the antiviral, antibacterial and expectorant properties present in ginger ease congestion in the throat and chest to help you breathe easier.

             “Ginger is an effective ingredient that dissolve the phlegm. Sour ginger dries the phlegm that prevails in the body” (Medicine of the Prophet(pbh)-Ibn Qayyim Al-Jawziyyah page 408 of 653)

Nose breathing -Stop breathing through your mouth and breathe only through your nose. As we breathe, oxygen enters the nose and passes the sinuses, which are hollow spaces in the skull. Sinuses help to filter the air, regulate the temperature and humidity of the air we breathe.  The sinuses are lined with very fine hair-like cells.
Question (2) How to stop coughing in 6 to 9 Minutes?
Answerà Chew approximately 21-30 pieces of  Zabib-raisins (زبيب )    (کشمش ) which is also called Golden Sultanas(seedless dried white grapes)    or
Currants black  (الكشمش )    (منقی )    (seedless grapes dried, dark red/Black) if you can’t find seedless variety eat raisins by removing seeds or spit out the seeds.

“Sweet seedless raisins benefit for who suffer from excessive wetness and phlegm. Raisin pulp is suitable for the windpipe and relieves coughing. In general raisins strengthen stomach … and benefit tile throat, chest, liver and prostrate.”
(Medicine of the Prophet(pbh)-Ibn Qayyim Al-Jawziyyah page 408 of 653)
Question (3) What else to take if any is coughing?
Answer
à (1) Water (Stay Hydrated)- Water is the number one help for throat mucus; pair it with vitamins C, E and Zinc for a natural remedy for throat mucus!  This will keep you well lubricated thus reducing the need for mucus as lubrication, which in return, reduces phlegm production. (Coughing is drying, which can only increase the irritation you are feeling. Drinking fluids of all kinds, especially Water, juice, and caffeine-free teas, may help ease your cough. Drinking fluids helps to thin out the mucus in postnasal drip. Drinking liquids also helps to keep mucous membranes moist. The fluid will help flush out harmful bacteria or viruses and keep your throat moist.

(Hadith 1)Narrated 'Aisha: Allah's Apostle used to love sweet edible things and honey .
 (Bukhari Book 65, Hadith 3421) 

(Hadith 2) Narrated Jabir bin Abdullah: I heard the Prophet saying, "If there is any healing in your medicines, then it is in cupping, a gulp of honey or branding with fire (cauterization) that suits the ailment, but I don't like to be (cauterized) branded with fire." (Bukhari Book 71, Hadith 587)

(Medicine of the Prophet(pbh)-Ibn Qayyim Al-Jawziyyah page 385 of 653)

Fenugreek seeds are rich in vitamins such as thiamin, folic acid, riboflavin, niacin, vitamins A, B6, and C, and are a storehouse of minerals such as copper, potassium, calcium, iron, selenium, zinc, manganese, and magnesium.
