Welcome to Janathi Message

Ramadan 2016


Constipation is a common condition that affects people of all ages. It can mean that you're not passing stools regularly or you're unable to completely empty
your bowel.

The severity of constipation varies from person to person. Many people only
experience constipation for a short time, but for others, constipation can be a long-term (chronic) condition that causes significant pain and discomfort and
affects quality of life.

It's often difficult to identify the exact cause of constipation. However, there are a number of things that contribute to the condition, including:

* Not eating enough fibre, such as fruit, vegetables and cereals.

* A change in your routine or lifestyle, such as a change in your eating habits.

* Ignoring the urge to pass stool.

* Side effects of certain medications.

* Not drinking enough fluids

* Anxiety or depression

Generally, nearly all fruits, except for jackfruit and banana, are considered to be beneficial in constipation. All the fruits are rich in fibre and clean and tone the
intestines. Bael is regarded as one of the best fruits for constipation. Its laxative properties make it an anti-constipation agent.

Holy Prophet (S.A.W) said “Upon you is the Senna and the Sanoot (cumin) for
indeed in the two of them is a cure for every disease except Saam” He was asked “O Messenger of Allah, What is Saam?” He said “Death” (Ibn Maajah)

The leaves and pods of the Senna plant are important ingredients of laxatives sold in most pharmacies. It is a recognised cure for constipation which begins to work 10-12 hours after ingestion. It detoxifies the body and cleanses the colon.

For constipation – Boil a desert spoonful of Senna leaves with two glasses of
water and brew for about 10 to 15 minutes or until it is reduced by half. Strain
the leaves and drink the liquid before going to sleep.

Today pharmaceutical companies make millions of pounds by producing
remedies using the ingredients taught by our Holy Prophet (S.A.W). Whereas Muslims are leaving the teachings of our Beloved Prophet (S.A.W) and are suffering in return.

If we took heed from the Islamic teachings, and use the Islamic remedies we can reduce the suffering that we face.
