Bismihi Ta’ala
The northern hemisphere is experiencing extreme heat and the Southern Hemisphere is experiencing extreme cold. The weather is in the Hands of Allah. He do whatever He wants. No one can alter the temperature except Him.
He use opposites to bring moderation. The ice poles has the opposite of the equator to keep the world 🌍 temperature livable for humans. He use Haq to trod baatil.
May Allah Ta’ala bless my teachers. They became not only our intellectual outsource, but also spiritual leaders and also health caring advisors.
I live in a tropical island where temperatures are very moderate Alhamdulillah. During my studies in Darul Uloom Zakarya, I experienced hard cold winter 🥶 of Johannesburg. Qari Ayoob Ishaq damat barakatouhou used to tell us to take precautions against the first cold wind/front of winter with thick winter cloths. Hazrat Mufti Radha ul Haq damat barakatouhou used to tell us to eat eggs with black pepper. Mowlana Choksi damat barakatouhou gave us traditional medicine prescription(Hakeem). And Mowlana Shabir Sahab damat barakatouhou is the engineer that gathered the ingredients of Falahe darein, Dabhel and Binory Town to cook it at the ideal temperature of sunnah.
The sunnah teaches us to take honey 🍯 mixed in warm water at tahajjud time. Take a pincer grasp of calouji/black seed grains in breakfast.
The sunnah teaches us to fight cold with heat and to fight heat with cold.
حَدَّثَنا عَبْدُ العَزِيزِ بْنُ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ، قالَ: حَدَّثَنِي إبْراهِيمُ بْنُ سَعْدٍ، عَنْ أبِيهِ، عَنْ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ بْنِ جَعْفَرِ بْنِ أبِي طالِبٍ رضي الله عنه ، قالَ: «رَأيْتُ النَّبِيَّ ﷺ يَأْكُلُ الرُّطَبَ بِالقِثّاءِ»

Jafar ra: “I have seen Rasouloullah Swalallahou Alaihi Wasallam eating rutab/fresh dates with cucumber 🥒.”(Bukhari)
Dates being of hot nature while cucumber of cold nature

Allah Ta’ala has made Hell fire the means of both summer heat and winter cold. Reported in Bukhari that Rasouloullah Swalallahou Alaihi Wasallam said that Hell Fire 🔥 complainted to Allah Ta’ala about its flames has inter-eaten each other that caused it to diminish. So Allah Ta’ala granted it the permission for two vents/breaths: one in winter and one in summer. That is the extreme heat you experience and the extreme cold.”(Bukhari)

وحَدَّثَنِي عَمْرُو بْنُ سَوّادٍ، وحَرْمَلَةُ بْنُ يَحْيى، واللَّفْظُ لِحَرْمَلَةَ، أخْبَرَنا ابْنُ وهْبٍ، أخْبَرَنِي يُونُسُ، عَنِ ابْنِ شِهابٍ، قالَ: حَدَّثَنِي أبُو سَلَمَةَ بْنُ عَبْدِ الرَّحْمَنِ، أنَّهُ سَمِعَ أبا هُرَيْرَةَ، يَقُولُ: قالَ رَسُولُ اللهِ ﷺ: «اشْتَكَتِ النّارُ إلى رَبِّها، فَقالَتْ: يا رَبِّ أكَلَ بَعْضِي بَعْضًا، فَأذِنَ لَها بِنَفَسَيْنِ، نَفَسٍ فِي الشِّتاءِ، ونَفَسٍ فِي الصَّيْفِ، فَهْوَ أشَدُّ ما تَجِدُونَ مِنَ الحَرِّ، وأشَدُّ ما تَجِدُونَ مِنَ الزَّمْهَرِيرِ»

The sunnah teaches us to take precautions against these extremes.
Rasouloullah Swalallahou Alaihi Wasallam said: “Wait till cooler hours to perform Zohr. Because the extreme heat is from the flame of Hell.”(Bukhari)

عَنْ أبِي سَعِيدٍ، قالَ: قالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ ﷺ: «أبْرِدُوا بِالظُّهْرِ، فَإنَّ شِدَّةَ الحَرِّ مِن فَيْحِ جَهَنَّمَ»

So we should avoid to go out in the sun at midday hours during summer.

حَدَّثَنا مالِكُ بْنُ إسْماعِيلَ، حَدَّثَنا زُهَيْرٌ، حَدَّثَنا هِشامٌ، عَنْ عُرْوَةَ، عَنْ عائِشَةَ رضي الله عنها ، عَنِ النَّبِيِّ ﷺ، قالَ: «الحُمّى مِن فَيْحِ جَهَنَّمَ

Rasouloullah Swalallahou Alaihi Wasallam said:”Fever is from the heat of the (Hell) Fire, so cool it with water.”(Bukhari)

So find the ideal temperament of your body. Then give your body its moderation food so that it stays healthy. Eat heat natured food during winter. Like ginger, betel, chilli, etc. And take cooling ingredients during summer.
May Allah Ta’ala keep my teachers healthy and happy. Let’s follow their advices and take precautions against the extreme temperatures of the solstices.
