What is Selusuh ? Apa itu Selusuh ?

Selusuh is a Melayu or a Malay word. Selusuh is used as an effort to facilitate women in giving birth.
There are various types of Selusuh. What I want to share is the selusuh that I know and having experience witnessing them myself.

Selusuh adalah perkataan Melayu. Selusuh digunakan sebagai satu usaha untuk memudahkan wanita dalam melahirkan anak.
Terdapat pelbagai jenis Selusuh. Apa yang saya ingin berkongsi adalah selusuh yang saya tahu dan berpengalaman menyaksikannya sendiri.

Using Bunga Kacip Fatimah in making the water of Selusuh
Mengunakan Bunga Kacip Fatimah di dalam menyediakan air selusuh


Bunga Kacip Fatimah often used as selusuh.
============================================================

Bunga - Flower, Kacip -incisors, staple.

Fatimah was taken from the name of Prophet Muhammad s.a.w 's beloved daughter

============================================================
 
In the medical culture of Melayu, the matters beneficial to women often being named in conjunction with Siti Fatimah's name, the beloved daughter of Prophet Muhammad s.a.w while the things related to man, the name of Saidina Ali r.a is referred to.

As being told, the tree of Bunga kacip Fatimah thrives in the Arab countries and can be found in Mecca. However I am not so sure about this fact.

Bunga Kacip Fatimah kerap digunakan sebagai selusuh.

Di dalam budaya perubatan Melayu, perkara-perkara yang berfaedah kepada kaum wanita kerap dinamakan sempena nama Siti Fatimah r.a, anak kesayangan Nabi Muhammad s.a.w. Manakala yang berkaitan dengan lelaki, nama Saidina Ali pula sering dirujuk.

Seperti yang saya diberitahu, pokok Bunga Kacip Fatimah hidup subur di negara-negara Arab dan boleh didapati di Mekah. Walau bagaimana pun saya tidak begitu pastinya tentang fakta ini.

How to use it ? Bagaimana cara mengunakannya ?

There are various ways to use it and I do not know which way is more correct and accurate.


The simple way, launder the bunga Kacip Fatimah before immersed it into cool water. Wait until it expanse and drink the soaked water. There are people use it as water for bath.

Pelbagai caranya mengunakannya dan saya tidak tahu cara yang mana lebih betul dan tepat.

Cara yang mudah, basuh terlebih dahulu sebelum direndam ke dalam air sejuk. Tunggu hingga ianya berkembang kemudian diminum air rendamannya itu.
Terdapat juga mereka yang mengunakannya sebagai air untuk dibuat mandi.

When to use the bunga kacip Fatimah ? Bila harus mengunakannya ?

Two or three days before the expected date of the birth.

As usual, to drink the water, just read bismillah, selawat and drink. Have to pray to Allah for blessing, safety and hope that Allah will granted the effort

It is also believe by some, may be through their experience, the rate of the expansion of the Bunga kacip Fatimah after being immersed into water will be the sign of birth whether still far or getting near.

Dua atau tiga hari dari tarikh jangkaan kelahiran.

Caranya meminumnya mudah sahaja, Hanya dimulakan dengan bismillah, selawat dan minum . Berdoalah agar diberkati dan dimakbulkan oleh Tuhan akan usaha tersebut

Dipercayai juga oleh sesetengah orang, kadar kembang selepas direndam menjadi petanda saat kelahiran yang makin dekat atau masih jauh lagi harinya.

Wallahu'alam

=====================

Recite part of Suratul  Hashr سورة الحشر

Another way in making the selusuh water is by reciting the Suratul Hashr ayat 21 to ayat 24 into a glass of water by the mother or woman herself. Then rub the water on her stomach. Rub the water from right to left in circle. As usual, read bismillah, selawat and seek help from Allah by reading dua.

If could, better to understand the meaning so that while recite, we can follow the meaning of the ayat inside our heart. Seek bless from Allah and read dua with a big hope that Allah will makbul or granted our doa and effort.


You may repeat 3 times at the ayat no 22 then continue to next ayat. till end (ayat 24)

Can read into a cup of water or just put water on palm, recite the ayat and then rub on stomach.

Can be done at any time, even during the earlier time of pregnancy . Much better or more afdhal recited by the woman or wife herself then rub on her stomach also by her self (as being told to me)


                                                Al Quran Surah Al-Hashr - The Exile - سورة الحشر
Ayat 21 to 24

Sahih International
If We had sent down this Qur'an upon a mountain, you would have seen it humbled and coming apart from fear of Allah . And these examples We present to the people that perhaps they will give thought.
Tafsir al-Jalalayn
Had We sent down this Qur’ān upon a mountain, and had it [the mountain] been endowed with a faculty of discernment like man, you would have surely seen it humbled, rent asunder by the fear of God. And such similitudes, as those mentioned — do We strike for mankind, that perhaps they may reflect, and so become believers.
Malay
Sekiranya Kami turunkan Al-Quran ini ke atas sebuah gunung, nescaya engkau melihat gunung itu khusyuk serta pecah belah kerana takut kepada Allah. Dan (ingatlah), misal-misal perbandingan ini Kami kemukakan kepada umat manusia, supaya mereka memikirkannya.

59:23
Sahih International
He is Allah , other than whom there is no deity, the Sovereign, the Pure, the Perfection, the Bestower of Faith, the Overseer, the Exalted in Might, the Compeller, the Superior. Exalted is Allah above whatever they associate with Him.
Tafsir al-Jalalayn
He is God, than Whom there is no other god, the King, the Holy, the One sanctified from what does not befit Him, the Peace, unblemished by any defects, the Securer, the One Who confirms the sincerity of His messengers by creating miracles for them, the Guardian (al-muhaymin: [derives] from haymana, yuhayminu, meaning that one is watcher over something), in other words, the One Who is Witness to the deeds of His servants, the Mighty, the Strong, the Compeller, compelling His creatures to what He will, the Exalted, above what does not befit Him. Glorified be God — He is declaring His transcendence — above what partners they ascribe!, to Him.
