  • THE DESIGN OF THE WOODPECKER
    As we all know, woodpeckers build their nests by boring holes in tree trunks with their beaks. This may sound familiar to most people. But the point many people fail to examine is why woodpeckers suffer no brain haemorrhage when they beat a tattoo so vigorously with their heads. What the woodpecker does is in a way similar to a human being driving a nail into the wall with his head. If a man ventured to do something like that, he would probably undergo a brain shock followed by a brain haemorrhage. However, a woodpecker can peck a hard tree trunk 38-43 times in just two or three seconds and nothing happens to it.(1)   Nothing happens because the head structure of woodpeckers is ideally created for such a task. The skull of the woodpecker has a remarkable suspension system that absorbs the force of the blows. Its forehead and some skull...

  • Daily Anti-Depressant
    Many people are under the misconception that an increase in wealth will lead to an increase in happiness. However, this could not be further from the truth, as depression affects people across all income-brackets and from all walks of life. The severity of depression can perhaps be gauged by the fact that according to statistics, in South Africa alone, there are approximately twenty-three known suicides a day! Islam has given us a simple, free prescription that has no unwanted side effects and is incomparable in combating depression. In this regard, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) taught us that we should always look at those who are less fortunate than ourselves (Saheeh Muslim #7428). In doing so, we will realize how many bounties we enjoy for which we should be thankful and how fortunate we really are. Hence, we...

  • Why we need good friends..
    A well know Arabic saying advises, “Don’t talk about a person. Ask about his companions.” This simply means that if you want to enquire about a person — about his character, what are his habits, is he responsible, etc., then do not enquire specifically about him. Instead enquire about the company he keeps. If he keeps good company, insha-Allah he will be likewise a good and upright person. On the contrary if he remains in the company of people accustomed to sin and vice or people of low character and morals, he will generally be judged accordingly. Musk Seller Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) has emphasized upon us to always maintain good company. He is reported to have said: “A person follows the way of his friend, therefore beware of who you befriend!” (Sunan Abi Dawood #4833) In another hadeeth a good friend...

by ash sheikh Agar Mohamed (Naleemi)

பெருநாள் தினத்தை மறுமையோடு ஒப்பிட முடியும். மறுமை நாளில் மனிதர்கள் எவ்வாறு இருப்பார்கள் என்பதனை அல்குர்ஆன் நமக்குச் சொல்லித் தருகிறது.

“அந்நாளில் சில முகங்கள் மகிழ்ச்சியினால் இலங்கிக் கொண்டிருக்கும். சிரித்தவையாகவும் மகிழ்வுடையதாகவும் இருக்கும். ஆனால், அந்நாளில் வேறு சில முகங்கள் மீது புழுதி படிந்திருக்கும். அவற்றைக் கருமை இருள் மூடியிருக்கும்.”                
(ஸூரா அபஸ: 3841)


பெருநாள் தினங்களிலும் சில முகங்கள் இப்படித்தான் இருக்கும். துல்ஹிஜ்ஜா மாதத்தின் முதல் பத்து நாட்களிலும் நோன்பு நோற்று, நற்கருமங்கள் செய்து, இபாதத்தில் ஈடுபட்டவர்களுக்கு இந்த ஹஜ்ஜுப் பெருநாள் மகிழ்ச்சிகரமானதாக இருக்கும். நற்கருமங்கள் செய்தவர்கள் இந்நாளில் மலர்ந்த முகத்தோடு இருப்பார்கள். அவர்களின் இன்முகங்களில் புன்னகை பூத்திருக்கும்.......

Ibn Abbaas, may Allah be pleased with him, reported that the Prophet (sallallaahu alaihi wa sallam) said: There are no days during which good deeds are more beloved to Allah than these days; meaning the first ten days of Dhul-Hijjah.

As the dawn of Ramadhaan approaches, offering us glimpse of its golden rays of purity, every Muslim around the world prepares to experience the warm ambience which only this month can bring. From Suhoor to Iftaar to Taraaweeh Salaah, Ramadhaan brings together brothers, sisters, parents and children. In order to derive the utmost benefit from the sacred month of Ramadhaan, it is crucial to recognize the spiritual significance and importance of this month. Fasting during this month should be only for ALLAH TA'ALA, and that HE will give the reward for it, for the reward of ALLAH, the Bountiful and Munificent, is greater and vaster than anyone could imagine, Subhaan-ALLAH!

 

ISLAM & SCIENCE

Featured Islamic Articles

PoorBest 

The power of science is so amazing that it pushes religious people to take one of two paths when it comes to their beliefs about the world and what their sacred texts have to say about it. Either one has to both reject what we learned through the scientific method and have faith that what they believe to be Revelation is the Truth and everything else is the devil’s deception, or they relegate what they see in their sacred texts to be allegories to teach us life’s lessons. Many followers of the Jewish and Christian traditions seem to have fallen entrapped into one of these two paths. We now have two main encampments: young earth creationists, or sacred scripture allegorists. There are even an increasing number of believers who have been taken by powerful scientific theories, such as that of evolution, and have now begun to reject the literality of the story of Adam and Eve as a real event. Unfortunately, Muslims are increasingly joining their Abrahamic brothers and sisters as they try to cope with how to deal with the seemingly outward contradiction between religion and science.

Children are easily influenced by their surroundings. These days, it is extremely difficult to expose our children to an ideal Islamic environment given the influences from media, friends and even other members of the family.

With television, radio, Internet and forms of media mostly touting un-Islamic values, it is up to parents and adults close to the children to set the correct example.

It is impossible to shield our children from all the negative forces that can shape their minds and, ultimately, their behavior.

 

Understanding the Qur’an: Some Initial Conditions

Featured Islamic Articles

By Amin Ahsan Islahi

Cleanliness and ablution are the initial conditions for the prayer. One can obtain its true blessings only if one fulfils these initial conditions before offering it. Similarly, there are some initial conditions for understanding the Qur’an. One can be blessed with this understanding only if one tries to grasp the Holy Book after fulfilling these conditions. This writer will now attempt to explain these:

Purity of Intent

Purity of intent is the foremost of all conditions. It means that one should read the Qur’an only to obtain guidance from it and not for any other purpose. If a person has some other purpose in mind, he will not only remain deprived of the blessings of the Qur’an, but he may also get further away from the Qur’an than he formerly was. If he studies the Qur’an in order to be an exegete so that he may get some fame and mundane interest, he might achieve this target but he will never get to the true comprehension of the Qur’an. Similarly, if a person studies the Qur’an to notch up some arguments for his preconceived notions, he may succeed in getting some distorted testimonies for them, but at the cost of understanding the Qur’an.

 

Intelligence: Is it in the brain or the heart?

By Mohamed Ghilan

Contrary to what we know now, the “organ of intellect” was not always known to be the brain. In fact, before the matter was settled, there were two competing views regarding where the intellect is in the body: the brain or the heart. The most famous of those on one side was Aristotle who was pushing for a cardiocentric (heart-centered) model, which argued that the heart is in fact the organ of intelligence (Frampton, 1991). In his observations, Aristotle noticed that poking the brain of an injured person did not induce pain. He therefore reasoned that the brain is not engaged in perception of any kind. Had he known about pain receptors, I’m sure he would’ve done a few more tests.

 

Miswak – A great sunnah and a healthy habit

By Nawal Aqil

Islam is a complete way of life and therefore teaches us good manners too. Cleanliness in Islam is given a lot of importance according to a famous Hadith which says, “Purification is half of faith.” (Muslim). It not only teaches us personal hygiene, but also cleanliness of our houses and neighborhoods.

Allah has indeed created man in the best form and granted him beauty, and so he wishes to see His slave in the best form as well. “Verily Allah is beautiful and loves beauty.” (Muslim).

The use of siwak or miswak holds great importance in Islam. Apart from keeping the body and limbs clean Islam teaches special cleanliness for the mouth in order to keep away from diseases and also to make ones breath pleasant so that it doesn’t become a cause of discomfort to others. Since teeth are the doors of our mouth they should always be clean and shinning as it adds beauty to a Muslims smile and face. 

   

Understanding Islamic Prophetic medicine in light of eastern medicine

Featured Islamic Articles

by Dr. Rehan Zaidi

Amazing is our confidence in Modern medicine. Amazing still is how illness can change all that confidence quite quickly. Spending billions of dollars annually on alternative health care in the United States, the sheer number of people becoming disillusioned with the current state of medical care is driving medical institutions to loosen up on their conservative medical ideology.

Johns Hopkins, the Mayo Clinic, MD Anderson, most other leading hospitals, all have begun integrating complementary therapies, even if nothing more than treating with Chinese needles. Acupuncture, like most Eastern therapies, used in a purely Modern medical fashion is limited in benefit compared to its 4000 year old traditional method, but at least Western medicine is recognizing the East can contribute a thing or two. Eastern countries, surprisingly, are doing the exact opposite: As the West proudly presents its newfound respect in ancient therapies, the East shyly brushes its medical traditions under the rug.
