Amazing Size Of The Universe

The expanding Universe 2 + level view of the universe!

   “………the total number of stars in the universe is probably something like the total number of grains of sand on all the seashores of the world. Such is the littleness of our home in space when measured up against the total substance of the universe.”

10,000 crore, as the stars in a galaxy group

And the heaven We constructed with strength, and indeed, We are [its] expander.(Quran 51:47)

We will show them Our signs in the horizons and within themselves until it becomes clear to them that it is the truth. But is it not sufficient concerning your Lord that He is, over all things, a Witness?.(Quran 41:53)

Indian brands get 'halal' stamp

BANGALORE: Islamic branding is an idea whose time has come, as brands tracking a broader consumer base get accustomed to Muslim sensibilities. It's not just about halal food alone, for it's at the forefront of the branding repertoire that resonates deeply with Muslim consumers around the globe.

Homegrown brands like CavinKare, Daawat, Bikano, Goldwinner oil, Vadilal ice cream, Amrutanjan Health Care and Gujarat Ambuja Exports are embracing halal-certification to get a better foothold in markets like Singapore, Malaysia and Gulf Co-operation Council (GCC) countries.

CavinKare has got a halal certification from Halal India, an apex body for halal certification , for three of its products - Fairever, Nyle herbal shampoo and Ruchi pickle - to expand its footprint in Singapore, Malaysia and GCC. "The certification is a reason-to-belief for customers on quality parameters.

Salaat has been made compulsory on all believers in all situations. It is an activity which cannot be neglected under any circumstance. This obligation on us should not be regarded as a burden, but rather it should be cherished and appreciated. It is said that a pious person is one who enjoys their prayer. This statement conforms to the hadith, which states that the Prophets’ three most beloved things were his wives, perfume and prayer. Besides attaining spiritual upliftment from performing one’s salaat, one may also gain many physical and psychological benefits. The Prophet Muhammad (s.a.w) is recorded in a hadith (Ibn Majah) stating that prayer is a cure for many diseases. The wisdom in this claim can be understood when assessing the physical benefits of the act of prayer.

The process of performing salaat expects certain movements and actions, these actions performed at least five times a day have been found to equate to jogging or walking at a rate of 3 miles an hour. This is a basic level of exercise strongly advocated by doctors and members of the medical fraternity on a whole. The importance of exercise is undeniable, with potential benefits to the cardiac, respiratory, skeletal and muscular system. The dynamics of salaat contribute to the improvement of all of these systems, with specific emphasis on the muscular and cardiac systems. Each physical aspect of the prayer is beneficial, but we will focus on ‘sajdah’ to illustrate the effectiveness of salaat as a form of exercise. Before we delve into this discussion, it needs to be noted that the purpose of performing salaat should not be to obtain health benefits, but rather to fulfil a religious requirement. The fact that there are physical benefits associated with prayer comes as a blessing.

Sajdah is the part of the prayer which requires the musalli (individual carrying out the prayer) to prostrate with his/her nose and forehead pressed against the ground. It has a particular spiritual significance in that it is in this position that the believer is closest to his/her Lord. Knowledge of this has psychological benefits as the believer develops a connection with their creator placing them at ease. In terms of the muscular system, the Prophet advised those in sajdah to keep their forearms elevated, this has been found to place more tension on the muscles of the upper and lower arms. The back and neck muscles also actively contract and extend during the process, and it is these mechanisms which work towards strengthening the muscles and ligaments.

This position of the prayer is also quite unique in that it is one of the few postures which lowers the brain to a level lower in height than the heart. This allows blood to flow with less resistance to the central nervous system, allowing improved performance of cognitive function.

There is also great wisdom in the timing of the five daily prayers. The salaat which tends to impact most dramatically on the routine of most believers is Fajr, as it is often this prayer which defines the sleeping pattern of the believer. Studies in America have shown that for most people the optimum amount of sleep required is seven hours, while those who exceed this period tend to have slightly shorter life-spans. The Prophet in this respect, like all other areas, provides the best example. It is narrated that the Prophet Muhammed (s.a.w) would sleep soon after Isha and then awake at midnight to perform night prayers. This sleep routine has been adopted in Europe to treat patients with depression, as this structure has been found to improve wellbeing.

In this article a glimpse of the benefits of prayer has been presented, and Insha-Allah with this knowledge you may develop a greater appreciation for your salaat.

Avoiding sarcasm

 A sarcastic attitude is quite widespread among that segment of people who live their lives far from the Qur'an. Among ignorant people, some may ridicule others' shortcomings, mistakes, physical abnormalities, clothing, lack of material possessions, carelessness, behaviour, the way they talk, and in short, almost everything about them. To make fun of someone, they use certain words and gestures or mimic certain facial expressions. For the person making fun, it is not important that he may hurt the other person's feelings, make them sad, annoyed, upset or anxious. The important thing is to feed their own pride and to humiliate the object of their ridicule.

In the Qur'an, Allah definitely forbids people ridiculing others:

You who believe! People should not ridicule others who may be better than themselves; nor should any women ridicule other women who may be better than themselves. And do not find fault with one another or insult each other with derogatory nicknames. How evil it is to have a name for evil conduct after coming to faith! Those people who do not turn from it are wrongdoers. (Surat al-Hujurat: 11)

In another verse, our Lord warns, "Woe to every faultfinding backbiter" (Surat al-Humaza: 1) and warns people who behave in this ugly way; who do not live according to the teachings of the Qur'an and who do not think about the account they will render in the afterlife.

Phytonutrients Explained

Phytochemicals or phytonutrients are chemical compounds that naturally occur in plants, and have protective, disease-preventing properties.

A variety of these beneficial compounds have been identified by researchers in helping the body to maintain peak health and combat disease, and a growing body of research strongly links the importance of diet to health.

Studies are showing that as we move away from the natural, plant-based diet of our ancestors we succumb to "modern" diseases. Evidence of this can be seen in remote societies who still embrace traditional dietary practices. These people have been reported to live extraordinarily long lives that are free of such illnesses as cancer, heart disease and arthritis.

How Do phytonutrients Protect Against disease?

Here are a few ways in which these beneficial compounds protect human health:

    Serve as antioxidants
    Enhance immune response
    Enhance cell-to-cell communication
    Cause cancer cells to die (apoptosis)
    Repair DNA damage caused toxic substances
    Detoxify carcinogens

Phytonutrients are grouped into classes depending on their protective functions as well as individual physical and chemical characteristics of the molecules. Each class offers a unique kind of protection for the body. But for overall health, all classes of phytonutrients should be consumed, and an easy way to boost phytonutrient intake is to simply eat a mix of naturally colorful foods.

Here are the main classes of phytochemicals and some of their individual health-boosting properties.

A Collection of Islamic Jokes

                                            A Collection of Islamic Jokes

Before you read these jokes, you might want to read a little bit about the
conditions of joking in Islam. The article is located at the bottom of this page.


A man is taking a walk in Central park in New York. Suddenly he sees a little girl being attacked by a pit bull dog . He runs over and starts fighting with the dog. He succeeds in killing the dog and saving the girl's life. A policeman who was watching the scene walks over and says: "You are a hero, tomorrow you can read it in all the newspapers: "Brave New Yorker saves the life of little girl" The man says: - "But I am not a New Yorker!" "Oh ,then it will say in newspapers in the morning: 'Brave American saves life of little girl'" – the policeman answers. "But I am not an American!" – says the man. "Oh, what are you then? " The man says: - "I am a Saudi !" The next day the newspapers says: "Islamic extremist kills innocent American dog.

Here is the story of an Imam who got up after Friday prayers and announced to the people:"I have good news and bad news. The good news is, we have enough money to pay for our new building program. The bad news is, it's still out there in your pockets."

An Imam shocked his community when he announced that he was resigning from that particular Masjid and moving to a drier climate. After the session, a very distraught lady came to the Imam with tears in her eyes, "Oh, Imam, we are going to miss you so much. We don't want you to leave!" The kind hearted Imam said "Now, now, sister, don't carry on. The Imam who takes my place might be even better than me".

"Yeah", she said, with a tone of disappointment in her voice, "That's what they said the last time too . . . "

Surat Al-Kahf ( about Dhul-Qarnayn. )

Surat Al-Kahf
Sahih International
And they ask you, [O Muhammad], about Dhul-Qarnayn. Say, "I will recite to you about him a report."

(நபியே!) அவர்கள் துல்கர்னைனை பற்றி உங்களிடம் வினவுகின்றனர்; "அவருடைய வரலாற்றில் சிறிது உங்களுக்கு நான் ஓதிக் காண்பிக்கிறேன்" என்று நீர் கூறுவீராக.

Sahih International
Until, when he reached the setting of the sun, he found it [as if] setting in a spring of dark mud, and he found near it a people. Allah said, "O Dhul-Qarnayn, either you punish [them] or else adopt among them [a way of] goodness."

சூரியன் மறையும் (மேற்குத்) திசைவரை அவர் சென்றடைந்த போது, அது ஒரு சேறு கலந்த நீரில் (மூழ்குவதுபோல்) மறையக் கண்டார்; இன்னும் அவர் அவ்விடத்தில் ஒரு சமூகத்தினரையும் கண்டார்; "துல்கர்னைனே! நீர் இவர்களை(த் தண்டித்து) வேதனை செய்யலாம்; அல்லது அவர்களுக்கு அழகியதான நன்மை செய்யலாம்" என்று நாம் கூறினோம்.
Sahih International
They said, "O Dhul-Qarnayn, indeed Gog and Magog are [great] corrupters in the land. So may we assign for you an expenditure that you might make between us and them a barrier?"

அவர்கள் "துல்கர்னைனே! நிச்சயமாக யஃஜூஜும், மஃஜூஜும் பூமியில் ஃபஸாது - குழப்பம் - செய்கிறார்கள்; ஆதலால், எங்களுக்கும், அவர்களுக்குமிடையே ஒரு தடுப்பு(ச் சுவரை) நீர் ஏற்படுத்தித் தரும் பொருட்டு நாங்கள் உமக்கு ஒரு தொகையைத் தரலாமா?" என்று கேட்டார்கள்.

Sahih International
[Dhul-Qarnayn] said, "This is a mercy from my Lord; but when the promise of my Lord comes, He will make it level, and ever is the promise of my Lord true."

"இது என் இறைவனிடமிருந்துள்ள ஒரு கிருபையே ஆகும், ஆனால் என் இறைவனுடைய வாக்குறுதி நிறைவேறும்போது, அவன் இதனையும் தூள் தூளாக்கி விடுவான்; மேலும், என் இறைவனுடைய வாக்குறுதி (முற்றிலும்) உண்மையானதே" என்று கூறினார்.

Mothers causing division between spouses

It is Satan who separates between husband and wife and no one else.
This is every house’s call that her mother in-law or his mother is creating separation between us. Unfortunately you will not find anybody speaking on it due to a reason, neither scholars of Islaam nor the society, but the voice tears the four walls only when a big loss takes place secretly inside the four walls like bride burning etc.
First of all we request and advise the mothers and request those who read this to convey it to mothers that please don’t put your son in such a situation where neither can he speak nor keep quite. He cannot speak back his mother because Islaam does not allow him; he cannot keep quite because injustice is happening to his wife. If he speaks back to his mother in an unlike manner, he earns direct ticket to hell, on the other hand if he remains silent on seeing the oppression over his wife he earns hell; on both ways man is hell doomed.
There are endless reasons why this situation arises in every home and turns into its worst in maximum homes; the fundamental reason is that mother in-law is not happy with her daughter in-law due to endless reasons.
A person said, “She becomes unhappy with me when she sees me & my husband laughing with each other. She hates when my husband plays with his children & in turn she oppresses me in one or the other way.”
We see in Hindu society society that daughter in-law is under the control of mother in-law in every manner. She cannot move out, visit her parents without the permission of her mother in-law even though her husband allows her. Hindu tradition has damaged the Indian society at a very large extent. It says husband is your god and you shall not return to your parents home but dead even though you may be suffering a great amount of oppression from husband or from your in-laws. Killing the female baby child, bride burning, dowry given by the wife to her in-laws, considering women less human than men etc are nothing but the teachings of the Hindu culture. Since we know the effect of bad company, Muslim society became part and parcel of this ruthless culture because we were ignorant about Islaamic teachings even at present.
The result of this rift within the four walls has resulted to many disasters, one of them is ‘bride burning’. It is man goes to work or for job in the morning, his wife is alone with his mother and family members at home and so they set his wife in fire by throwing at her kerosene oil. Sometimes husband is one of them who sets his wife in fire but that is a separate topic.
