I’m 20 years old and am always stressed out due to school, im doing pre-law, anyway, i’ve been told that stress will bring wrinkles sooner than you expected. 2) My questions is; is botox or anti wrinkle creams permissible in islam? Im not planning on using it because of wrinkles due to old age, but of stress.

I really don’t want to get ‘high’

Q: at hospital a cancer patient is told that if she smokes medical mirajuna it would help reduce her bad conditions, increase her appetite and reduce her pain and also help with intake of legal medication.

cpr…

Question: Assalamu alikum wa rahmatulla Imaam,
I have two different concerns (I’ll try to make them short):
1-I am a girl, can I do a CPR for a guy if I had to? I would love it if you provide the point view of our beloved Imaams Shafie and Hanafi.
2-I had a dream that I was in a battle between Muslims and non-Muslims, it was dark but a little bright, meaning either Fajir or Magrib time. HORRIFYINGLY enough, I was with the side of non-Muslims. I felt very young when I was fighting the Muslims. The non-Muslim side won, and while I was looking through the dead bodies, :'(  I saw the body of my beloved Khalifa Abu Bakir! (I wasn’t able to see his features, but everyone in the dream knew it was the Khalifa) he was laying on the ground, and I stared crying so hard. I screamed for help, I tried to do something, but I wasn’t able because Abu Bakir (may Allah be pleased with him) was with the Muslims side, and I was with the messed up side, I didn’t figure out what were they other than enemies. When I woke up ya Imaam, my tears where all over my face in the middle of the night, and I couldn’t go back to sleep, because I felt like Allah subhanahu is telling me through my dream that I am hurting my Ummah some how. Is that right? can you
tell me what the dream meant? or at least what should I do?
