I live in England and me and my family plus a few family friends were staying at a resort, as part of the package you got free entry into their theme park and zoo, as having younger children we thought it was best to take the minibus as the young ones would probably want to sleep afterwards, not have to walk 20-30 mins to the resort (the theme park and zoo were about a 10 mins drive away from our resort). So as we were in the minibus one of the younger ones claimed to not be feeling well (we had only be travelling for bout 5 mins at this point), as he doesn’t like throwing up and creating a mess he then proceeded to opening the minibus window and vomit out of it, now at this point one of the older ones tried to be sneaky and open the back window to have a cigarette. As you could probably guess the vomit hit the older one in the face, just the smell made almost everyone feel sick, it put a downer on the day as we had to go back to the resort as we were all feeling sick. We managed to go the park the following day without incident, here is a photo I took of some of the meerkats we saw.

Anas reported that Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) visited a person from amongst the Muslims in order to inquire (about his health) who had grown feeble like the chicken. Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) said: Did you supplicate for anything or beg of Him about that? He said: Yes. I used to utter (these words): Impose punishment upon me earlier in this world, what Thou art going to impose upon me in the Hereafter. Thereupon Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) said: Hallowed be Allah, you have neither the power nor forbearance to take upon yourself (the burden of His Punishment). Why did you not say this: O Allah, grant us good in the world and good in the Hereafter, and save us from the torment of Fire. He (the Holy Prophet) made this supplication (for him) and he was all right.
