It is highly recommended InshaaAllah, that you arrive earlier than the stated time, around half an hour early.  In this way, it will give you enough time InshaaAllah to find the place, settle in; get your things ready on the table & open all caps/tops, and covers. 
Also while waiting for the Sheikh to start the session, you can go ahead and start reciting Surah Al Fatihah or some other Surahs on your own or make dhikr and ask Allah SWT sincerely to heal you.

Please InshaaAllah,  ensure that all containers and the covers (caps) are labeled with your names to avoid mix ups/confusion at the end of the session (sometimes, the same, identical brand items are brought in). You can keep all your tops/caps in one ziplock bag, for example.

Sidr powder usually comes in packets.  Please if you can repack/repackage your sidr powder into a plastic or glass bottle which is sturdy and can stand firmly on the table. This is to avoid spillages.

Also, please re-bottle zam zam water if you have many of the little ones.  This is more practical and to avoid any spillages.

Usage of items:
You eat or drink most of them. Remember Allah SWT before doing so and ask HIM for help.
Olive oil can also be used as rubbing oil.
Sidr powder is to be mixed with some water and then use it during shower all over the body instead of soap. 

Just as a reminder, please do not call the masjid about these sessions because this is separate from the masjid programs.If you have any questions please e-mail

Jazak Allahu Khayran!!

May Allah SWT lessen all our burdens & heal all of us, completely, Aameen.
