Today, it is quite disheartening to see that some parents rejoice
when the newborn child is a male and show their dissatisfaction when the
child is a female. But, this should not be the attitude. Islam does not
condone this type of behavior, as such was the manner of the parents in
the time of ignorance.
Children are gifts of Allah and there is no difference between male or female child but Islam said they should be righteous child Holy Prophet (pbuh) said:
الولد الصالح ریحانه من ریاحین الجنه
“A righteous child is a flower from flowers of heaven.” (1)
He also said:
Therefore, the parents are responsible for their children and they should be careful how they treat and rear them.
من سعاده الرجل الولد الصالحه
“Of the signs of prosperity, the righteous child is one.” (2)

Note: Though healthy in general, left-side sleeping may not be suitable in some cases, like for those who have had heart troubles in the past.
People the world over love sleep dearly. There is no denying that it is one of life’s sweetest pleasures.
Yes, you may be able to get by for a while, but you will likely be mentally disoriented and low on energy, until you are able to take it no more.
Lack of sleep also causes a horde of diseases and possibly fatal conditions. It is one of the biggest factors associated with heart disease.
Along with maintaining a proper sleep pattern, you can give your health a boost by sleeping in a certain position.
One of the many questions that have been asked is why does Islam make hijab mandatory for women? Islam has introduced hijab as part of the decency and modesty in interaction between members of the opposite sex. Verse 59 of chapter 33 of the holy Quran gives a very good reason; it says...
Many of us are very proactive when it comes to our medical needs. We get yearly physicals, go to the dentist twice a year, and some of us even make sure to get our monthly massage. One thing, however, for which many people wait until a problem arises to see a professional, is the eyes. I can say this because as an eye doctor, it is a daily occurrence for me to see patients who haven't had their eyes checked in five or more years. The eyes are one of the sensors Allah has given us to experience His wonders and by which to also gain humility by lowering our gaze. They should be taken care of and treasured just like any important organ of our bodies....
Fostering good eating habits and providing healthy, nutrient-dense food choices is one of a parent's important tasks in raising young children. Quality nutrition is important for toddlers, because it affects physical and mental development as well as helping to prevent and overcome illness. Deficiencies of nutrients, such as iron and vitamin C, can impair brain and body functioning. Also, what constitutes healthy eating for older children and adults isn't always best for little ones...
Bones play many roles in the body — providing structure, protecting organs, anchoring muscles and storing calcium. While it's particularly important to take steps to build strong and healthy bones during childhood and adolescence, you can take steps during adulthood to protect bone health, too.
Why is bone health important?
Your bones are continuously changing — new bone is made and old bone is broken down. When you're young, your body makes new bone faster than it breaks down old bone, and your bone mass increases. Most people reach their peak bone mass around age 30. After that, bone remodeling continues, but you lose slightly more bone mass than you gain.
How likely you are to develop osteoporosis — a condition that causes bones to become weak and brittle — depends on how much bone mass you attain by the time you reach age 30 and how rapidly you lose it after that. The higher your peak bone mass, the more bone you have "in the bank" and the less likely you are to develop osteoporosis as you age....
