Coping with Grief: Part 5

How to help someone who is grieving

The Messenger of Allah ﷺ said:

 مَنْ أَصْبَحَ مِنْكُمْ آمِنًا فِي سِرْبِهِ مُعَافًى فِي جَسَدِهِ عِنْدَهُ قُوتُ يَوْمِهِ فَكَأَنَّمَا حِيزَتْ لَهُ الدُّنْيَا

“Whoever among you wakes up in the morning secured in his dwelling, healthy in his body, and having his food for the day, then it is as if the world has been gathered for him.” (Jami` at-Tirmidhi 2346)

In addition to grieving yourself, you may find that you also need to be there for others in your life. Providing support to others can be tricky at times since everyone grieves differently.

When we see loved ones crying, in pain or suffering our initial inclination is to help remove whatever is distressing them. That is because we care about our loved ones and want what is best for them. However, with death and some other kinds of loss is that there is nothing to fix or do that can bring back what was lost. read more

A Baby’s Vomit

Question: Is the vomit of a suckling infant impure?

Answer: If an infant (or a person) vomits a mouth full – it will be considered Najis (impure). A mouthful is defined as that which the mouth (of the one vomiting) would not be able to hold in without undue difficulty.

It would be necessary to wash the soiled portion of the clothes or body, especially if the amount is more than a Dirham coin (about the size of the inner recess of the palm). If Salaah is performed without washing it then the Salaah will not be done.

In the case when the vomit is a small quantity (less than a mouthful) then it will not be considered to be Najis (impure). It will be sufficient to wipe it clean.

( و ) ينقضه ( قيء ملأ فاه ) بأن يضبط بتكلف ( من مرة ) بالكسر أي صفراء ( أو علق ) أي سوداء وأما العلق النازل من الرأس فغير ناقض ( أو طعام أو ماء ) إذا وصل إلى معدته وإن لم يستقر وهو نجس مغلظ ولو من صبي ساعة ارتضاعه هو الصحيح لمخالطة النجاسة ذكره الحلبي (الدر المختار 1/ 137)

وما ليس بحدث ليس بنجس بكسر الجيم فيلزم من انتفاء كونه حدثا انتفاء كونه نجسا (شرح الوقاية 1/ 69)
