Proper sleeping

Do you wake in the morning with pain in your back, neck, and joints? It could be because of your sleeping position. Good posture is as important during sleep as it is during waking hours. When you dont give your body proper support, the result can be a real pain in the neck or back for that matter. There are measures you can take to alleviate this problem.

Corruption Doth Appear on Land & Sea

Climate changes are increasing because of what man has done. This subject was been mentioned in Quran….
Allah Almighty says: (Corruption doth appear on land and sea because of (the evil) which men's hands have done, that He may make them taste a part of that which they have done, in order that they may return.) [Ar-room: 41]. Let us take a closer look at the verse and what it points out of recently discovered scientific facts:
1- (Corruption doth appear on land and sea). Scientists confirm that serious corruption is about to appear. It is true that the ozone layer is not yet completely depleted, but some signs of warning that the Earth is being spoiled are appearing. Even scientists use the term “Spoil” to express the corruption that is going around the earth.
2- (because of which men's hands have done). The Quran stresses that this corruption in the form of pollution or contamination can only happen because of what man’s evil deeds. Isn’t mankind responsible for the pollution as scientists confirm?
3- (that He may make them taste a part of that which they have done). This is a torment Allah is inflicting upon those wrong doers because of their evil deeds and mischief on Earth.
4- (in order that they may return) meaning that the possibility of returning the Earth to a balance exists, and this is what scientists confirm today.
And now the question is: Is this verse compatible with the science or not?

Doctors on Drugs?

Here's the infographic about doctors and how the pharmaceutical companies are paying millions of dollars for them to push their products. Personally, I think it's pretty disgusting and it's making our society even less healthier than before we walked into the doctor's office.

Obesity among school children is attracting the attention of the Health Ministry of Malaysia and the Minister of Health issue a rules to all school canteens all over the country that nasi lemak cannot be sold to school children. The school canteen operators argue, if we cannot sell nasi lemak, what can we sell to the school children. Nasi lemak has been the traditional breakfast for the Malays for centuries. Malays used to take rice cook with coconut milk which is known as nasi lemak with sambal of dried small fishes known as ikan bilis as the main food for breakfast. Malays used to be farmers or fishermen and they need the carbohydrate in order to provide them the energy to work. Nasi lemak provide the carbohydrate that the farmers and the fishermen need. Now not all Malays are farmers or fishermen Most Malays are now working as government servants, professionals, businessmen. They do not need that much carbohydrate as the farmers and fishermen needs. All children go to school and they also do not need much carbohydrate as they do not need much energy to spend. The habits of eating rice cook in coconut milk in the early morning as breakfast continue throughout the generations. It passes on generation to generation and the habit of eating nasi lemak dies hard. Can we stop our children to stop eating nasi lemak at school by giving the rules that canteen operator cannot sell nasi lemak. Our children are used to eat nasi lemak and if they cannot buy nasi lemak from the school canteen, our children will buy nasi lemak from stalls outside the school. Can we stop the stall outside the school from selling nasi lemak? The government cannot stop people from eating nasi lemak and neither the government can stop people from selling nasi lemak. Rules to stop the school canteen operator from selling nasi lemak will not solve the problems of obesity of our children. The health Ministry is pointing to only the habit of eating nasi lemak as the cause of obesity? What about the habit of eating mee or noodles? Rice and noodles are all carbohydrate and when taken in large quantity or more that what that person needs will be converted into fat and stored in the body leading to obesity.

Eucalyptus Tree

Eucalyptus is a diverse genus of trees which dominate the tree flora of Australia with over 700 species. Eucalypts are found in almost every part of the continent, adapted to all climatic conditions. No other continent is so characterized by a single genus of tree as is Australia by Eucalyptus. Many species are commonly called gum trees; other common names include mallee, box, ironbark, stringybark, and ash. [1]

Eucalypts are among the tallest trees in the world. Eucalyptus regnans, the Australian Mountain Ash, is the tallest of all flowering plants (Angiosperms), growing to nearly 200 meters.

Eucalyptus species are sometimes grouped by bark characteristics:
Stringybark - consists of long-fibers and can be pulled off in long pieces. It is usually thick with a spongy texture.
Ironbark - is hard, rough and deeply furrowed. It is soaked with dried kino (a sap exuded by the tree) which gives a dark red or even black color.
Tessellated - bark is broken up into many distinct flakes.
Box - has short fibers. Some also show tessellation.
Ribbon - this has the bark coming off in long thin pieces but still loosely attached in places. They can be long ribbons, firmer strips or twisted curl

BBC - In the footsteps of Alexander The Great

In the footsteps of Alexander the Great

In this award winning adventure Micheal Wood embarks on a 20000 mile journey in the foot steps of Alexander's triumphal march from Greece to India. Travelling with Lebanese traders, Iranian pilgrims and Afghan guerillas, by jeep, train, boat, camel and on foot, he interweaves the momentous events of the past with present day reality and brings us new insights into a man whose myth and acheivements still resonate down the centuries.

"We saw things I can scarcely believe. We took shelter for the night with an Afghan warlord who had delivered pizzas in the United States, and were hauled off to jail more than once. It was one of the great experiences of my life" - Michael Wood

Alexander the Great (Greek: Μέγας Aλέξανδρος , Megas Alexandros; July 20 356 BC -- June 10 323 BC) also known as Alexander III, was an ancient Greek king (basileus) of Macedon (336--323 BC). He was one of the most successful military commanders in history, and was undefeated in battle. By the time of his death, he had conquered most of the world known to the ancient Greeks.

Stress and its impact on the heart and body

Anger, negative thinking and stress are considered destructive factors for the health of heart and body, So Islam orders us to stay away and avoid them …
The Messenger of Allah peace be upon him wasn’t be angry to any life matters. His satisfaction and anger were for Allah .He, therefore, was the happiest and the most stable and tranquility person, and gave us the best examples of this. 
It's rarely for the Messenger of Allah to spend a day without facing events of anger and emotion and stress but we did not know he was angry except when someone exceed the limits of Allah. The Prophet deals with any problem calmly and patiently. This is what makes people entering the religion of Allah in crowds. Therefore, God praise him in the Holy Quran: "And you on an exalted standard of character"(Al-Qalam:4). 
Recent scientific studies have shown that psychological tension, stress and anger are considered destructive factors to human health and heart and it may lead to serious diseases like cancer!
Researchers believe that, despite the fact that exercise and good diet and other factors which have vital importance to heart health, the social factors, happiness, a sense of satisfaction and perfection and work towards a goal in life have an impact in their turn. 
The Prophet ordered his companions to repeat important words that express satisfaction, in mornings and evenings. This is:
"I declare to Accept Allah as my Lord, to accept Islam as a religion and to Muhammad as Prophet and Messenger" Who say it ten times in the morning and evening, it will be really on God to reward him in the Day of Resurrection.
The researchers maintain that satisfaction is one of the most important remedies for any mental illness.
Most mental disorders results from dissatisfaction, Anger is at the head of factors that are detrimental to humans, it causes sudden death, stroke and myocardial infarction and blood pressure.
Stress affects the physical and mental health 
U.S. research has revealed that stress and psychological pressures faced by individuals on a daily basis can cause some types of cancer. While a similar European study found that stress is harmful to heart health. The study carried out by researchers from the American University "Yale," that psychological stress may stimulate the daily growth of tumors, And that any shock, emotional or physical, Can serve as a "corridor" between cancerous mutations which eventually lead to serious tumors. 
The results of the study published in the Nature journal showed That the necessary conditions for this disease can be affected by emotional environment  including all the daily tasks that we undertake, whether at work or in the family. 
Tian Xu, a specialist Professor in genetics from Yale University Says: "There are a lot of different circumstances can lead to stress. And reduce or avoid the circumstances that cause it, are always a good advice... ". 
European study addressed another aspect of the stress, The British research has shown a negative effect on the heart and the disease which may be caused by stress .This study confirms  scientifically, the prevailing belief since ancient times being linked to heart attacks. 
All participants were subjected to stress tests, and then the levels of the hormone cortisol were measured. It is a primary stress hormone produced by the body when exposed to psychological pressure or physical, and lead in the event of release to narrowing of the arteries. The researchers observed that participants who were injured by the stress tests were the most vulnerable, by weakness, in which lack of sufficient arterial injury for those who kept calm.

Woman's Inner Beauty

Men and women are equal but not identical. Each of them complements the other in the different roles and functions that they are responsible to. In Islam the individuals should not be judged according to gender, beauty, wealth or privilege. The only thing that makes one person better than another is his or her character. Therefore woman is judged by her character and actions rather than by her looks or physical features.
Islam ordered the same high standards of moral conduct for men as it is for women. Modesty is essential in a human's life, as well, whether it is in action, morals or speech. A woman who adheres to the tenets of Islam is required to follow the dress code called Hijab (Veil). Islam also commands proper behavior and dress of men, in that they are not allowed to make a show of their bodies to attract attention onto themselves, and they too must dress modestly. They have a special commandment to lower their eyes, and not to brazenly stare at women.

Osama Bin Laden's Favorite Wife And Favorite Son

By Jean Sasson
Don’t be fooled by the talk that Yemeni wife Amal was Osama’s favorite wife. I’ve got several reasons to think that is not true, although I’m sure he had affection for her loyalty in staying with him through the final days.

I’ve been reading many current articles on the Osama Bin Laden drama. It’s impossible not to compare what I’m reading to what was revealed to me by Omar and Najwa Bin Laden when I was gathering their memories to write their personal accounts of living with Osama (in GROWING UP BIN LADEN). (Omar was Osama’s favorite son who courageously ignored his father’s call for violence, while Najwa held three coveted positions in a Muslim marriage: the first wife, a first cousin, and the mother of his first son, Abdullah). Note to those journalists who are writing that his Yemeni wife was his favorite: Don’t assume that because Amal was the wife with him in Pakistan that she was the favorite. Believe me when I say that he would have preferred Najwa by his side. There was an intense life-long bond between Najwa and Osama. They had known and loved each other since infancy. They spent many summers affectionately playing together in Syria when Osama’s mother Allia took her family to visit Najwa’s family (Najwa’s father was Allia’s brother).

Four things I bet you didn't know your Mobile Phone can do?


There are a few things that can be done in times of grave emergencies.
Your mobile phone can actually be a life saver or an emergency tool for survival.
Check out the things that you can do  with it:

The Emergency Number worldwide for all Mobile Phones is 112.
If you find yourself out of  the coverage area of your mobile network and there is an emergency, dial 112
And your mobile will search any existing network in your area
 to establish the emergency number for you, and interestingly, this number 112 can be dialled even if the keypad is locked.
This works on all phones worldwide and is free.
It is the equivalent of 000.

Have you  locked your keys in the car?

Does  your car have remote keyless entry? This may come in handy someday.

When do we stop creating terrorists?

In 1985, President Ronald Reagan received a group of beardedmen. These bearded men I was writing about in those days in The New Yorker, actually did. They were very ferocious-looking bearded men with turbans looking like they came from another century. President Reagan received them in the White House. After receiving them he spoke to the press. He pointed towards them, I'm sure some of you will recall that moment, and said, "These are the moral equivalent of America's founding fathers". These were the Afghan Mujahiddin. They were at the time, guns in hand, battling the Evil Empire. They were the moral equivalent of our founding fathers!

In August 1998, another American President ordered missile strikes from the American navy based in the Indian Ocean to kill Osama Bin Laden and his men in the camps in Afghanistan. I do not wish to embarrass you with the reminder that Mr. Bin Laden, whom fifteen American missiles were fired to hit in Afghanistan, was only a few years ago the moral equivalent of George Washington and Thomas Jefferson! He got angry over the fact that he has been demoted from 'Moral Equivalent' of your 'Founding Fathers'. So he is taking out his anger in different ways. I'll come back to that subject more seriously in a moment.

depression, some thoughts

 The smile is the only affirmation of one’s comfortable co-existence in this world, and when that twists, and the eyes glisten to see the world dull and gloomy, when the vision of the mind too turns out of focus, and when time seems to extend itself, the description, the definition and the diagnosis is depression.

In everyone’s life there will be many moments that may be described as blue. This is not the radiant vibrant happily freckled bright sky blue, but a murky dull and suffocating gloom. This is commonly and in psychiatric parlance known as depression.

If one were to consider sadness as an emotion and a reaction to external stimuli, depression can be construed as a state of mind, but in actuality it is an illness. It can affect anyone, anytime. It not only hurts and numbs, it makes perspectives bitter too.

It strikes silently and silences. Depressive illness manifests in two ways, a major depressive illness or a minor depressive episode.

Growing Up Bin Laden

I have read this book. Was introduced to his brothers who head the Bin laden group in year 2000 in Riyadh and Dubai, a year before Sept 11. 

The last word: Growing up bin Laden

In a new book, Osama bin Laden’s fourth son, Omar, describes a father who always put jihad above family

MY FATHER WAS not always a man who hated. My father was not always a man hated by others. History shows that he was once loved by many people. Despite our differences today, I am not ashamed to admit that, as a young boy growing up in Saudi Arabia and Sudan, I worshipped my father, whom I believed to be not only the most brilliant but also the tallest man in the world. I would have to go to Afghanistan as a teenager to meet a man taller than my father. In truth, I would have to go to Afghanistan to truly come to know my father.

Omar bin Laden.

My father was accustomed to being No. 1 in everything he did. He was the most skilled horseman, the fastest runner, the best driver, the top marksman. Many people found my father to be a genius, particularly when it came to mathematical skills. He was so well known for the skill that men would come to our home and ask him to match wits against a calculator. He never failed.

His phenomenal memory fascinated many who knew him. On occasion, he would entertain those who would ask by reciting the Koran word for word. He once confessed that he had mastered the feat during a time of great mental turmoil when he was 10 years old, after his biological father had been killed in an airplane accident.

My father’s piety made him strict about the way we lived. In the early 1980s, when we lived in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, one of the hottest cities in a country known for its hot climate, he would not allow my mother to turn on the air conditioning. Nor would he allow her to use the refrigerator. He announced: “Islamic beliefs are corrupted by modernization.” He appeared to relish seeing his young sons suffer, reminding us that it was good for us to know what it felt like to be hungry or thirsty, to do without while others had plenty. Why? Those with plenty would grow up weak men, he said, unable to defend themselves.

Teach Your Child about Allah! - Surat Luqmān (Luqman)

Surat Luqmān (Luqman) - سورة لقمان

QUR`AN 31:12
Sahih International

And We had certainly given Luqman wisdom [and said], "Be grateful to Allah ." And whoever is grateful is grateful for [the benefit of] himself. And whoever denies [His favor] - then indeed, Allah is Free of need and Praiseworthy.
Tamil NEW
இன்னும், நாம் லுஃக்மானுக்கு நிச்சயமாக ஞானத்தைக் கொடுத்தோம். "அல்லாஹ்வுக்கு நீர் நன்றி செலுத்தும்; ஏனென்றால் எவன் நன்றி செலுத்துகிறானோ அவன் தன(து நன்மை)க்காவே நன்றி செலுத்துகிறான்; இன்னும் எவன் நிராகரிக்கிறானோ (அவன் தன்னையே நட்டப்படுத்திக் கொள்கிறான்) - நிச்சயமாக அல்லாஹ் (எவரிடத்தருந்தும்) தேவையில்லாதவன்; புகழப்படுபவன்".
