Recentlly there was a huge talk about the topic of facting , its facts and benefits ... so some people think of facting as a great way to lose weight .... while some others think of it as a way to deal with wieght and look amazing .

In this article we are going to talk about some important benifits behind facting ;
Here are 5 facts on fasting:

1. Fasting has been around forever. It was traditionally used in religious practices as a mode of penitence as well as a golden opportunity for reflection and introspection. It’s also been used by political protesters to gain media exposure and draw attention to their message.

2.  fasting can help you prolong your lifespan through , keeping total calories under control with a healthy lifestyle that includes physical activity is a reasonable way to rein in calories and achieve an optimal life span.

3. People seeking weight reduction by fasting have an endless array of ways to do this, from water only.

4. Can you actually drop weight and keep it off with fasting? In a word, no. Remember the last time you had the flu and couldn’t keep anything down? Yep, you did drop some weight, most of it water weight, and perhaps a pound or two

Very touching message. A beautiful post from one mother to another mother.

● There were days when my home used to be filled with laughter, arguments, fights, jokes and loads of mischief. 

● Pens and books all over, and clothes messing the rooms, thrown on the beds. 

● I used to shout at them to tidy up their mess. 

In the morning:

• One will wake up and say: Mama I can't find a certain book.

• And the other will say: I can't find my perfume.

• And one will say: Mama where's my homework?

• And another: Mama I forgot to complete my homework.

● Everyone used to ask about their lost possessions.  And I will say, but take care of your stuff, be responsible, you have to grow up.

● And today I stand at the doorway of the room. The beds are empty. All the cupboards have only a few pieces of clothes in them. And what remains is the smell of perfume that lingers in the air. 

● Everyone had a special smell. So I take in the smell of their perfume for maybe it will fill the empty ache in my heart.

● All I have now is the memory of their laughs and their mischief and their warm hugs. 

● Today my house is clean and organized and everything is in its place, and it is calm and peaceful. But it is like a desert with no life in it. Do not become angry with your kids about the mess. 

● Every time they come to visit and they spend time with us, when they are ready to leave. They pull their bags and it is as if they tug my heart along with it. 

● They close the door behind them and then I stand still and think of the many times I shouted them to close the doors. 

● Here I am today, closing my own doors. Nobody opens it besides me. Each one gone to a different city or a different country.  All left to find their own path in life. 

● They have grown up and I wished that they could stay with me forever.

● Oh God... take care of them & all other children wherever they may be, for You are their guide and  protector and always keep them happy.

● If your children are still in the stage that you need to talk and talk before they could get things done in the house, please, cherish and endure it with joy, don't nag, they will soon leave your home for you, remember they were not there at the beginning of your marriage. Now that they are around, make them happy and feel happy yourself. 

Dedicated to all mothers, fathers, grandfathers & grandmothers. Please read twice.

Interesting article on HALAL Meat!!

We have a very wrong understanding about the meaning of Halal slaughter. I was asked by a Non-Muslim professor once. What makes a meat halal? And I didn't know an explanation and I was embarrassed. But I gave a vague answer saying that we say the prayer before we cut, that makes it Halal.

Later, I came back and went through many hadiths and articles written by Muslim scholars and finally came to an understanding. I am going to explain it in a scientific way so that InshaAllah in the future you will be prepared if anyone asks you the same.


Answer: It is the undrained blood that contaminates the meat, which makes it Haram.What non-muslim butchers do is completely CHOP OFF the head as a result of which the Connection between the Brain and the Heart is LOST hence the Heart stops Pumping/Beating almost instantaneously. Therefore there is no driving Force to PUSH the blood OUT of the body. As a result of this the blood STAGNATES in the veins and arteries and Contaminates the meat.

Scientifically Blood is one of the Best culture mediums to grow bacteria.Consuming meat contaminated with blood makes humans more vulnerable to infections and joint pains. (Joint pains because of high uric acid levels in blood)

Answer: We DO Not Chop off the head completely, instead we CUT the Main Vein (jugular vein) in the neck first. This vein contains venous blood in high pressure and it directly connects to the atrium of the heart without any interference. This method of slaughtering preserves the connection between the brain and the heart which allows neural transmissions to be delivered.

This keeps the heart pumping/beating until all blood is drained

off completely from every vein and artery in the body making the meat PURE and thus halal.

Allah SWT has created Fish in such a way that the moment it is removed from water the Entire Blood in its body is redirected to a part called the Epiglottis in its mouth which turns bright red thus indicating that the blood is drained and the meat is pure. SUBHANALLAH!!
