The Holy Prophet Muhammadsaw said, there are two blessings of Allah if man does not care for them it is his loss, one is health, the other is time of leisure. (Bukhari)

 

Health includes not only diet and exercise but also our overall mental and spiritual well being. Oftentimes, with work, family and Jamaat responsibilities, we find little time to focus on our health or set realistic attainable goals. Let us make sure that we make our health a major priority while always keeping in mind that the strongest medicine and healing can be found in our faith.

 

"And when I fall ill, it is He who restores me to health." (26:81)

 

The verse means that we fall ill because of our own weaknesses and mistakes, and health is bestowed upon us as a blessing from Allah.

  Oshkosh Community Garden  

In June 2012, Lajna Ima'illah Oshkosh adopted a flowerbed at a local community garden. The garden was initiated as a volunteer effort by three college students in an underprivileged neighborhood. A City grant covered the initial setup costs and in return the local community had free access to grow their own food albeit through organic and natural practices. The watering system was also eco-friendly as the garden had access to barreled rain water. Lajna members helped build the wooden flowerbeds with the garden managers and donated young plants for the vegetable patch.

 

 

The potted plants included tomatoes, cucumbers, zucchini squashes, egg plants, green chillies and various herbs. Despite a very busy summer with Jalsa preparations and guests from overseas, members took turns in the maintenance and watering of the plants. Since it was a very dry Summer, the rain barrels were usually empty, so members made the extra effort to bring gallons of water from home.  

 By the grace of Allah, the Oshkosh Lajna Ima'illah worked hard to share this collaborative experience and thoroughly enjoyed the fresh and healthy produce each week.
