Ameer-e-Ahl-e-Sunnat’s advice to children
Keep your teeth clean
Maulana Owais Yameen Attari Madani
Dear children! Ameer-e-Ahl-e-Sunnat ‘Allamah Muhammad Ilyas Qadiri دَامَـتْ بَـرَكَـاتُـهُـمُ الْـعَـالِـيَـهْ wants to share something with all of you:
‘If you don’t brush your teeth at least twice a day, the sugar from all those chocolates and sweets that you eat will stick to your teeth and gums. Germs will then grow all inside your mouth. These germs can make your teeth decay and give you a sore throat.’ (Booklet Bayta ho to aysa, p. 27)
Dear children! We have learnt that not cleaning our teeth regularly causes bits of food to stick to our teeth, and this makes germs spread all inside our mouths! And what do germs do? They make our teeth decay and turn yellow. Our Beloved Prophet صَلَّى الـلّٰـهُ عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم didn’t like yellow teeth. This is why he صَلَّى الـلّٰـهُ عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم once said: ‘Use Miswak! Use Miswak! Do not come to me with yellow teeth,’ (Jam’-ul-Jawami’, vol. 1, p. 389, Hadith 2875).
