For The Newborn Baby Suffering From Moisture and Weakness

Ahmad b. Ghayath narrated from Muhammad b. ‘Isa from al-Qasim b. Muhammad from Bukayr b. Muhammad, who said: I was with Abu ‘Abd Allah al-Sadiq, peace be upon him, when a man said to him: “O son of the Messenger of Allah, a child has been born with moisture (al-billa) and weakness.” He [al-Sadiq] said: “What prevents you from [giving him] sawiq. Make him drink it, and tell your wife to take it, for it produces flesh and strengthens the bones and you will beget only strong children.”
