Protecting teeth and ears
The Lion of Allah, Sayyiduna Ali Al-Murtada رَضِىَ الـلّٰـهُ عَـنْهُ advised, ‘Whoever says ‘اَلْحَمْدُ لِلهِ ربِّ الْعٰلَمِیْن عَلٰی کُلِّ حَالٍ’ upon sneezing, he will never experience molar or ear pain اِنْ شَــآءَالـلّٰـه, (Mirqat-ul-Mafatih, vol. 8, p. 499, under the Hadith 4739).
Protecting teeth against diseases
Hakeem-ul-Ummah, Mufti Ahmad Yar Khan رَحْمَةُ الـلّٰـهِ عَلَيْه writes: that, ‘Whoever says ‘اَلْحَمْدُ لِلهِ ربِّ الْعٰلَمِیْن عَلٰی کُلِّ حَالٍ’ upon sneezing, and passes his tongue over all his teeth, then اِنْ شَــآءَالـلّٰـه he will remain protected from diseases relating to teeth; this is tried and tested,’ (Mirat-ul-Manajih, vol. 6, p. 396, summarised).
Treating jaw pain
By writing ‘یَااللهُ’ (or having it written) 7 times on a piece of paper, folding it like a Ta’weez (it is better to have plastic coating on it) and pressing it under the molar; اِنْ شَــآءَالـلّٰـه the pain will be relieved, (Booklet: Beemar ‘Abid, p. 30).
A remedy for gum infection
If there is pain or swelling in the gums or they are inflamed, then heat 5 grams of potassium alum in a cup of water. When the potassium alum melts and dissolves into the water, rub it on the teeth and gums. If there is pain or swelling in the gums or they are inflamed then اِنْ شَــآءَالـلّٰـه it will be cured, (Booklet: Beemar ‘Abid, p. 30).
Reforming one’s husband
If one’s husband is always arguing and quarrelling at home, then the wife should recite Surah Al-Fatihah 11 times with ‘بِسْمِ الله’ each time and blow it over water. Give it to the husband to drink, and اِنْ شَــآءَالـلّٰـه he will adopt the path of piety.
Note: The husband, in fact no-one should know of this being done. Otherwise, it could cause misunderstandings and therefore lead to further problems. Administer this remedy whenever the opportunity arises. The water that was blown on could be mixed with the water of the cooler. As well as the husband, other family members can also drink from it; continue adding water which has been blown over according to your needs, (Booklet: Beemar ‘Abid, p. 40, slightly amended).
Improving children’s retention?
Recite ‘یَاعَلِیْمُ’ 7 times and Surah ‘اَلَمْ نَشْرَح’ 21 times with ‘بِسْمِ الله’ each time and blow over water. Give the treated water to the child with a weak memory to drink. اِنْ شَــآءَالـلّٰـه his memory will improve, (Booklet: Beemar ‘Abid, p. 42).
Strengthening the memory
Mix a handful of rose conserve (Gulqand) with Iranian almonds, crush them and store this powder. Use two spoons alongside milk every morning, and اِنْ شَــآءَالـلّٰـه the memory will be strengthened, (Doodh Peeta Madani Munna, p. 37).
