Time spent by asthma patients soaking up the sun may help in the treatment of the illness, a research has said. A team of scientists at King’s College London said vitamin D, which is made by the body in sunlight, calms an ‘over-active’ part of the immune system in asthma, BBC reported. However, treating patients with vitamin D has not yet been tested. People with asthma find it hard to breathe when their airways become inflamed, swollen and narrowed. Most people are treated with steroids, but the drugs do not work for everyone. ‘We know people with high levels of vitamin D are better able to control their asthma – that connection is quite striking,’ researcher Catherine Hawrylowicz told BBC. The group investigated the impact of the vitamin on a chemical in the body, interleukin-17. The chemical is a vital part of the immune system and helps to fight off infections. However, it can cause problems when levels get too high and has been strongly implicated in asthma. In the study published in the Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology, vitamin D was able to lower levels of interleukin-17 when it was added to blood samples taken from 28 patients. The team is now conducting clinical trials to see if giving the sunshine vitamin to patients could ease their symptoms.
1. Don’t smoke —- Experiments from experts proves that smoking a cigarette after meal is comparable to smoking 10 cigarettes (chances of cancer is higher)
2. Don’t eat fruits immediately — Immediately eating fruits after meals will cause stomach to be bloated with air. Therefore take fruits 1 -2 hours after meal or 1 hour before meal.
3. Don’t drink tea—— Because
4. Don’t loosen your belt———- Loosening the belt after meal will easily cause the intestine to be twisted and blocked.
5. Don’t bathe———- ——- Bathing after meal will cause the increase of blood flow to the hands, legs and body thus the amount of blood around the stomach will therefore decrease, this will weaken the digestive system in our stomach.
6. Don’t walk about———- — People always say that after a meal walk a hundred steps and you will live till 99. In actual fact this is not true. Walking will cause the digestive system to be unable to absorb the nutrition from the food we intake.
7. Don’t sleep immediately—- ——– The food we intake will not be to digest properly. Thus will lead to gastric and infection in our intestine.
Warning For Men & Women…Serious!
MAKE SURE YOUR DAUGHTERS, FRIENDS, RELATIVES, ETC. KNOW!
This was written by a guy from KVLY-TV in Fargo .
This is something that happened to us on the way back from vacation last week. At first I didn’t think much of it until now. The reason we were a little suspicious is we had been riding in a jeep all day with 100 degree temps and we stopped at a truck stop for something to drink.
When I was leaving, a young girl followed me out and asked what kind of cologne I was wearing.
Well, after 7 hours in the car sweating, I don’t think you could tell if I was or was not wearing any cologne. We just got in the jeep and said no thanks.
Then it was about 3 weeks ago, I was at a service station in Birmingham getting gas. It was about 9:30 PM. I was approached by 2 men and 2 women in a car. The man that was driving asked me ‘What kind of perfume do you wear?’
I was a bit confused and I asked him ‘Why?’ He said, ‘We are selling some name brand perfumes, at cheap prices.
I said I had no money. He then reached out of the car and handed me paper that was laminated; it had many perfumes on it. I looked quickly at it and gave it back. I said, have no money. He said it is OK, we take check, cash, or credit cards.
Then the people in the car began to laugh. I just got in my car and said no thanks. Then I received this e-mail yesterday and it sent chills up my spine.
Please read this. It is no joke. Here is the e-mail I was sent:
I know not all of you are women that I am sending this to, but am hoping you will share this with your wives, daughters, mothers, sisters, etc. Our world seems to be getting crazier by the day. Pipe bombs in mail boxes and sickos in parking lots with perfume. Be careful. I was approached yesterday afternoon around 5:30 PM in the Wal-Mart parking lot by two men asking what kind of perfume I was wearing. Then they asked if I’d like to sample some fabulous scent they were willing to sell me at very reasonable rate. I probably would have agreed had I not received an e-mail warning of a ‘Wanna smell this neat perfume’ scam. The men continued to stand between parked cars, I guess to wait for someone else to hit on. I stopped a lady going towards them, pointing at them and told her about how I was sent an e-mail at work about someone walking up to you at the malls or in parking lots and asking you to SNIFF PERFUME that they are selling at a cheap price or at least compare to which one you like best.
THIS IS NOT PERFUME… IT IS ETHER!
When you sniff it, you’ll pass out. They’ll take your wallet, your valuables and heaven knows what else. If it were not for this e-mail, I probably would have sniffed the ‘perfume’ but thanks to the generosity of an e-mailing friend, I was spared whatever might have happened to me. I wanted to do the same for you.
PLEASE PASS THIS ALONG TO ALL YOUR WOMEN FRIENDS AND PLEASE BE ALERT AND BE AWARE. IF YOU ARE A MAN AND RECEIVE THIS, PASS IT ON TO YOUR WOMEN FRIENDS.
Ladies, this happened to me yesterday and I didn’t smell the perfume either, thanks to this email. This is true. Believe me, I know. I was over by Big Lots in the parking lot at lunch time when I was approached. So either day or night, it does not matter. There were 3 guys together when I was approached. I called the police when I got back to my desk. Like the email says above, LET EVERYONE KNOW ABOUT THIS – YOUR FRIENDS, FAMILY, CO-WORKERS, whomever. It helped me. The first thing that popped into my head was this e-mail warning.
MAKE SURE YOUR DAUGHTERS KNOW!
A stock clerk was sent to clean up a storeroom in Maui , Hawaii .When he got back, he was complaining that the storeroom was really filthy and that he had noticed dried mouse/rat droppings in some areas. A couple of days later, he started to feel like he was coming down with stomach flu, complained of sore joints and headaches, and began to vomit. He went to bed and never really got up again. Within two days he was severely ill and weak. His blood sugar count was down to 66, and his face and eyeballs were yellow. He was rushed to the hospital where h e was diagnosed to be suffering from massive organ failure. He died shortly before midnight. No one would have made the connection between his job and his death, had it not been for a doctor who specifically asked if he had been in a warehouse or exposed to dried rat/mouse droppings at any time. They said there is a virus (much like the Hanta virus) that lives in dried rat and mouse droppings. Once dried, these droppings are like dust and can easily be breathed in or ingested if a person does not wear protective gear or fails to wash face and hands thoroughly. An autopsy was performed on the clerk to verify the doctor’s suspicions. This is why it is extremely important to ALWAYS carefully rinse off the tops of canned sodas or foods, and to wipe off pasta packaging, cereal boxes, and so on. Almost everything you buy in a supermarket was stored in a warehouse at one time or another, and stores themselves often have rodents. Most of us remember to wash vegetables and fruits but never think of boxes and cans.The ugly truth is, even the most modern, upper-class, super store has rats and mice. And their warehouse most assuredly does! Whenever you buy any canned soft drink, please make sure that you wash the top with running water and soap or, if that is not available, drink with a straw. The investigation of soda cans by the Center for Disease Control in Atlanta discovered that the tops of soda cans can be encrusted with dried rat’s urine, which is so toxic it can be lethal. Canned drinks and other foodstuffs are stored in warehouses and containers that are usually infested with rodents, and then they get transported to retail outlets without being properly cleaned. Please forward this message to the people you care about. (I JUST DID!)
A report has recently circulated claiming that DelhiUniversity’s Science and TechnologyCenter in India had earlier announced that the two beverages contain pepsin from pork stomachs.
Pepsin is a digestive protease released by the stomach to change food proteins into peptides.
Pepsi and Coca Cola Contains PORK (PIG) extracts – PROVEN!!
Shocking / Bad News :
Pepsi and Coca Cola contains extract from Pork (Pig)
Most of the people avoid Pepsi and Coca-Cola for various reasons:-
because of harmful chemical contents such as excessive carbonates, etc.
Now there is yet another reason which is more dangerous. The scientific and
medical research says that drinking Pepsi & Cola leads to cancer because the
key element is taken from Pigs sausage.
The pig is the only animal that eats dirt, dung and urine, which makes
lethal and deadly fabric polluted germs and microbes.
According to a report published in Jordanian magazine, the Head of Delhi
University Science and Technology , Dr. Mangoshada scientifically proved
that the key element in Pepsi and Cola contains extract from the intestines
of Pig which causes cancer and other deadly diseases.
The Indian university conducted tests on the impact of drinking Pepsi and
Coca Cola which proved that drinking them lead to more rapid heart rate and
Also drinking 6 bottles of Pepsi or Cola at a time causes instant death. It
also contains chemicals such as carbonic and phosphoric acids, citric acid
which harms teeth and causes bone fragility. Bones kept in the Cup of Pepsi
melts during the week knowing that the bones of the dead remain in the grave
for thirty years.
Research itself confirmed that the calcium dissolved in Pepsi and it weakens
the bladder, kidneys, kills the pancreatic, leads to diabetes and infectious
Pepsi or Coca-Cola lovers nothing to worry as it is not the only drinks
available on this earth, as we have other healthy alternatives such as
natural fruit juices, canned coconut water, flavoured milks, buttermilk
etc., all of them are conveniently available even in the small stores.
Most people being subjected to Directed Energy/Electromagnetic Attacks, and Psychotronics, never know that they are being affected.
Most often, they believe their health is failing, they are suffering from a mental health disorder, or they become depressed. Sleep is interrupted, and they experience physical symptoms that doctors normally dismiss as “nothing”, inexplicable, not bad enough to worry about, worthy of expensive testing or of the nature that you might require anti-psychotics and observation.
The use of Psychotronics has definite patterns, although the level and intensity of abuse varies greatly. If quantified, it would be easy to say that certain people are being harassed to induce suicide or to be sure their credibility is destroyed, so that testing may continue without fear that authorities will intervene.It’s important to remember that these tools are used for covert psychological operations. Even if they are used for so-called “experimental purposes” for reasons of national security – to train Psyops agents – the people writing the “scripts” for these operations are very creative in finding ways to destroy people’s lives, and influence them, disguising that influence as the result of something else.This is yet another example of a dialectic. For example, I could use one of these weapons to give you a headache to disrupt your ability to concentrate. You would simply think it was a headache. An electronic attack would have been performed while you were distracted into thinking it was something that was a fairly normal event. Like, lying about the circumstances leading to the Iraq War. All of the evidence was reasonable and rational, if the source was being honest. Except it wasn’t. (AKA the Diabolical people).You might have one or a number of these symptoms, and it may mean something, or it may mean nothing. That’s the problem. You’ll need to decide if the things you’re feeling actually seem “normal” or if it seems unusual.There are many symptoms that go with these that will tell an experienced person whether you’re dealing with an attack, or if something else should be considered. The problem is, finding an experienced person.These symptoms do not occur in a particular order.Symptoms of Electronic / Directed Energy Attacks
- Chronic fatigue
- Sudden changes or blurriness of vision, or eye irritation
- A feeling like static or a tingling feeling on your head
- The feeling of static around your body
- Sudden episodes of faintness or fainting
- Waviness in finger and toe nails
- Unexplained loss of hair
- Nasal Stuffiness
- Unexplained muscle and joint pain, often diagnosed as fibromyalgia
- Unexplained feelings of annoyance, restlessness, impatience distraction
- Inexplicable memory and word loss
- Headaches, and migraine headachesSymptoms of Psychotronic and Projected Sound Attacks
- Hearing strange noises, particularly those no one else hears
- Unusual Heart Rhythms, but your heart is fine
- False heart attacks – left hand and arm seem to radiate pain. EKG’s show no problems
- Depression, inexplicable patterns of anxiety, symptoms of ADD or bi-polar disorder
- Disruption in sleep patterns, sleep deprivation, need to take “aids” to sleep
- Hearing voices. Those subjected to these psychological operations know how to recognize when someone is suffering from a mental disorder, or if they are being subjected to a standard script or protocol to debilitate them. It’s very easy to recognize. It can rarely be fully stopped, but can often be “disrupted” electronically by jamming the signal.
- Media Mirroring. An experience whereby Psyops agents know what a TV show is going to be talking about or what its theme will be and cause the targeted individual to think of that topic. A pattern emerges over and over again whereby victims start to wonder if someone is listening to them, because people on TV seem to always be talking about what they were thinking or talking about before. An interesting illusion. The target is instructed to “think” about these things through subliminal and/or voice to skull communications.
- Voice to Skull Communications. This is a military communications that is at the heart of their ability to wirelessly conduct 2 way conversations with an individual. In the past, implants were necessary to facilitate this function. These days, technology indicates that implants are no longer necessary, once your location has been determined through RFID, GPS and cell phone tracking. This is also considered part of Synthetic Telepathy.There are a great number of other things that occur when these things happen. Again, an experienced individual will know if what you are experiencing is a likely attack.StalkingIf you are under surveillance, you are being stalked. It’s simply given a different name.And, since you have no idea who is doing it to you, or why, it comes under the category of what used to be discussed – the perfect crime – doing something to someone you don’t know in a random act, or an act that couldn’t possibly be traced by association or circumstantial evidence. Since most of these Psyops agents act under the veil of the authority of the law (in these unconstitutional, criminal acts), they truly operate as if they are above the law, because they are, thanks to FISA and other laws the Democratic and Republican officials have legislated while we were watching two years of redundant presidential campaigning so we wouldn’t notice.People being stalked or surveiled – by the government or other people – begin to notice patterns. People following them, cars, faces, odd incidents. Mail and email are tampered with, phone services seem to be inconsistent, and you never get important calls from people who said they tried to call.Even worse, these agents do things to prevent targeted individuals from receiving proper medical care, even though they pay for it, proper dental car, even though they pay for it, and are even denied proper medical care for their pets.Targeted individuals – victims – are often accosted in public in ways that can’t be reported. People bumping into them for no reason, and obviously did it on purpose. Trying to work and being hit with electronic attacks. You can not possibly imagine, what people are put through by professional Psyops agents contracted by the Department of Defense and Intelligence Agencies to destroy people’s lives.This, again, is one of those things I wish there was any doubt about. There simply is not. It’s sick.The Democrats and Republicans and the members of the Council on Foreign Relations all approve of the full development of these weapons, and their deployment. I can assure you, the deployment of these weapons is rapidly increasing, based on the number of reports from victims around the world.I have over 500 affidavits on my computer from victims in the United States, and am in contact with thousands more.Please be sure to read the “Executive Summary of the Church Committee” and “What You Can Do” on the Psychotronics menu.
1. Ask Him. He Listens: Dua
Turn each anxiety, each fear and each concern into a Dua (supplication). Look at it as another reason to submit to God and be in Sajdah (prostration), during which you are closest to Allah. God listens and already knows what is in your heart, but He wants you to ask Him for what you want. The Prophet said: Allah is angry with those who do not ask Him for anything (Tirmidhi).
The Prophet once said that in prayer, he would find rest and relief (Nasai). He would also regularly ask for God’s forgiveness and remain in prostration during prayer praising God (Tasbeeh) and asking for His forgiveness (Bukhari).
Allah wants you to be specific. The Prophet advised us to ask Allah for exactly what we want instead of making vague Duas. Dua is the essence of worship (the Prophet as quoted in Tirmidhi).
“Call on your Lord with humility and in private: for Allah loveth not those who trespass beyond bounds. Do not make mischief on the earth, after it hath been set in order, but call on Him with fear. And longing (in your hearts): for the mercy of Allah is (always) near to those who do good” (Quran 7:55-56).
2. Tie your Camel: Do your Part
One day Prophet Muhammad, peace and blessings be upon him, noticed a Bedouin leaving his camel without tying it. He asked the Bedouin, “Why don’t you tie down your camel?” The Bedouin answered, “I put my trust in Allah.” The Prophet then said, “Tie your camel first, then put your trust in Allah” (Tirmidhi).
Muslims must never become fatalistic. Although we know only Allah is in control and that He has decreed all things, we are each responsible for making the right choices and doing the right thing in all situations of our lives. We must take action (link to planning articles on SV). We must work to alleviate the hardships we, our families and our communities face.
Ask yourself the following questions if you are worried about the state of the world: are you part of the peace movement? Is your Masjid part of the peace movement? Are you part of an interfaith group with an agenda of peace and justice? Are you working with a group fighting discrimination? If your answer is no, it is time that you sat down to plan your share of time and money in finding solutions to the problems you face. “Verily Allah does not change men’s condition unless they change their inner selves” (Quran 13: 11).
Turn each worry into a Dua and each Dua into an action plan. That will show your commitment to your request and will focus your energy in the right direction.
3. Remember that human responsibility is limited
While we need to carry out our duty to the best of our abilities, always remember that you don’t control the outcome of events. Even the Prophets did not control the outcome of their efforts. Some were successful, others were not. Once you have done your duty, leave the results to Allah. Regardless of the results of your efforts, you will be rewarded for the part you have played.
However, never underestimate your abilities. Understand the concept of Barakah (blessings from Allah) and remember that Allah can and Insha Allah will expand them if you are sincerely exerting your energies for the right path.
4. Leave the world behind you five times a day
Use the five daily prayers as a means to become more Hereafter-oriented and less attached to this temporary world. Start distancing yourself as soon as you hear Adhan, the call to prayer. When you perform Wudu, keep repeating Shahada, the declaration of faith, as water drops slip down your face, hands, arms, and hair. When you stand ready to pray, mentally prepare yourself to leave this world and all of its worries and stresses behind you.
Of course, Shaytan will try to distract you during prayer. But whenever this happens, go back and remember Allah. The more you return, the more Allah will reward you for it. Also, make sure your Sajdas (prostrations) are talking Sajdas, in which you are really connecting to God and seeking His Mercy, praising Him, and asking His forgiveness.
5. Seek help through Sabr
Seek help through Sabr and Salat (Quran 2:45). This instruction from Allah provides us with two critical tools that can ease our worries and pain. Patience and prayer are two oft-neglected stressbusters. Sabr is often translated as patience but it is not just that. It includes self-control, perseverance, endurance, and a focussed struggle to achieve one’s goal. Unlike patience, which implies resignation, the concept of Sabr includes a duty to remain steadfast to achieve your goals despite all odds.
Being patient gives us control in situations where we feel we have little or no control. ‘We cannot control what happens to us but we can control our reaction to our circumstances’ is the mantra of many modern-day self-help books. Patience helps us keep our mind and attitude towards our difficulties in check.
6. Excuse Me! You are Not Running the World, He is.
It is important to remind ourselves that we don’t control all the variables in the world. God does. He is the Wise, the All-Knowing. Sometimes our limited human faculties are not able to comprehend His wisdom behind what happens to us and to others, but knowing that He is in control and that as human beings we submit to His Will, enriches our humanity and enhances our obedience (Uboodiah in Arabic) towards him. Read the story of the encounter of Moses with the mysteries behind God’s decision (Quran: 18:60-82). Familiarize yourself with God’s 99 Names, which are also known as His Attributes. It is a powerful way of knowing Him.
“God-there is no deity save Him, the Ever-Living, the Self-Subsistent Fount of All being. Neither slumber overtakes Him, nor sleep. His is all that is in the heavens and all that is on earth. Who is there that could intercede with Him, unless it be by His leave? He knows all that lies open before men and all that is hidden from them, whereas they cannot attain to aught of His knowledge save that which He wills them to attain. His eternal power overspreads the heavens and the earth, and their upholding wearies Him not. And He alone is truly exalted, tremendous.” (Quran 2:255).
The Prophet recommended reading this verse, known as Ayat al kursi, after each prayer, Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him. Once Ali, may Allah be pleased with him, approached the Prophet during a difficult time and he found the Prophet in Sajda, where he kept repeating “Ya Hayy Ya Qayyum”, words which are part of this verse.
7. Birds Don’t Carry their Food
Allah is al Razzaq (the Provider). “How many are the creatures that carry not their own sustenance? It is Allah Who feeds them and you, for He hears and knows all things (Quran 29:60).” By reminding yourself that He is the Provider, you will remember that getting a job or providing for your family in these economically and politically challenging times, when Muslims are often the last to be hired and the first to be fired, is in God’s Hands, not yours. As Allah says in the Quran: “And He provides for him from (sources) he never could imagine. And if anyone puts his trust in Allah, sufficient is (Allah) for him. For Allah will surely accomplish His purpose. Verily, for all things has Allah appointed a due proportion (Quran 65:3).
8. God controls Life and Death
If you fear for your physical safety and security, remember that only Allah gives life and takes it back and, that He has appointed the time for it. No one can harm you except if Allah wills. As He says in the Quran: “Wherever you are, death will find you out, even if you are in towers built up strong and high!” (Quran 4:78)
9. Remember that life is shortIt’s easy to get caught up in our own stress and anxiety. However, if we remember that our life is short and temporary, and that the everlasting life is in the Hereafter, this will put our worries in perspective.
This belief in the transitory nature of the life of this world reminds us that whatever difficulties, trials, anxieties, and grief we suffer in this world are, Insha Allah, something we will only experience for a short period of time. And more importantly, if we handle these tests with patience, Allah will reward us for it.
10. Do Zikr, Allah, Allah!
“… without doubt in the remembrance (Zikr) of Allah do hearts find tranquility” (Quran 13:28).
If you commute, use your time in Zikr. Pick any Tasbeeh and do that instead of listening to the radio or reading the newspaper. Maybe you can divide it up between Zikr and planning. Personally, I recite the Tasbeeh of “Subhana Allahe wa be hamdihi, subhan Allahil Azeem” 100 times as I drive. The Prophet taught us these two short phrases which are easy to say but will weigh heavy on our scale of good deeds in the Hereafter.
When your heart feels heavy with stress or grief, remember Allah and surround yourself with His Zikr. Zikr refers to all forms of the remembrance of Allah, including Salat, Tasbeeh, Tahmeed, Tahleel, making supplication (Dua), and reading Quran.
“And your Lord says: ‘Call on Me; I will answer your (prayer)…” (Quran 40:60)
By remembering Allah in the way He has taught us to, we are more likely to gain acceptance of our prayers and His Mercy in times of difficulty. We are communicating with the only One Who not only Hears and Knows all, but Who can change our situation and give us the patience to deal with our difficulties.
“Remember Me, and I shall remember you; be grateful to Me, and deny Me not” (Quran 2:152).
11. Relying on Allah: Tawakkul
When you awaken in the morning, thank Allah for giving you life after that short death called sleep. When you step out of your home, say ‘in Your Name Allah, I put my trust in Allah, and there is no power or force except with Allah’ (Bismillahi Tawakal to al Allah wa la hawla wa la quwwata illa billah). At night, remember Allah, with His praises on your lips.
Once you have established a plan you intend to follow through on to deal with a specific issue or problem in your life, put your trust in the most Wise and the All-Knowing. “When you have taken a decision, put your trust in Allah” (Quran 3: 159).
Rely on Allah by constantly remembering Him throughout your day. When you lay down to sleep, remember that sleep is death. That is why one of the recommended supplications before going to sleep is “with Your (Allah’s) Name I die and become alive”.
12. Connect with other human beings
You are not alone. Muslims are not alone. We are not suffering in silence. There are millions of good people who are not Muslim with beautiful hearts and minds. These are people who have supported us, individually and collectively, post-9/11, by checking up on us and making sure we are safe. These are individuals and organizations who have spoken up in defense of Muslims as we endured harassment and discrimination.
We must think of them, talk to them, connect with them, and pray for them. Through our connections, we will break the chain of isolation that leads to depression and anxiety.
13. Compare your dining table with that of those who don’t have as much as you do
The Prophet said: Whenever you see someone better than you in wealth, face or figure, you should look at someone who is inferior to you in these respects (so that you may thank Allah for His blessings) (Bukhari, Muslim).
Next time you sit down to eat, eye the table carefully. Check out the selection of food, the quality, the taste, the quantity, and then think of the millions of others who don’t have even half as much. The Prophet’s Hadith reminds us of this so that we can appreciate and thank God for all that we have.
Also remember that the Prophet only encouraged us to compare ourselves to others in two respects: in our Islamic knowledge and level of belief in God (Deen). In these two areas, we should compare ourselves with those who have more than what we do.
14. Say it Loud: Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar: Takbirat & Adhan
Find a corner of a lake, go out in the wilderness, or even stand on your lawn at your home and call the Adhan with your heart. While driving, instead of listening to the same news over and over again, say Allahu Akbar as loudly as you can or as softly as you want, based on your mood. Year ago, I remember calling Adhan on a Lake Michigan shore in Chicago after sunset as the water gushed against my knees. I was calling it for myself. There was no one else accept the waves after waves of water with their symphony. It was relaxing and meaningful. Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar.
15. Pray in congregation (Jamat)
Pray with other people instead of alone. If you can’t pray all five prayers in congregation, at least find one or two prayers you can pray with others. If you are away, establish Jamat in your own family. During the Prophet’s time, even though the Muslims endured great persecution, including physical beatings, they would sometimes meet on the side of a mountain or valley and tried to pray together. This is a great morale booster.
16. How is your Imam’s Dua?Does the Imam at your local mosque make Dua silently or out loud? Ask him to supplicate with the whole congregation. Suggest Duas for him to make. Ask him to make Dua for other people.
17. Work for the Unity of Muslims
Bringing Muslims together will not only help the Muslims, but it will also encourage you to focus your energies on something constructive versus zeroing in on and consistently fretting about difficulties you are going through.
Invite Muslims from other ethnic groups to your functions. Visit Masjids other than yours in your city. When you meet a Muslim leader, after thanking him for his efforts, ask him what he is doing for Muslim unity. Ask Imams to make Dua for this. These are just small ways you can help yourself and the Muslim community.
18. Sleep the way the Prophet slept
End your day on a positive note. Make Wudu, then think of your day. Thank Allah for all the good things you accomplished, like Zikr and Salat. Ask yourself what you did today to bring humanity together and what you did to help Muslims become servants of humanity. For everything positive, say Alhamdu lillah (Praise be to Allah). For everything negative say Astaghfirullah wa atoobo ilayk (I seek Allah’s forgiveness and I turn to You [Allah]). Recite the last two chapters of the Quran, thinking and praying as you turn on your right side with your hand below your right cheek, the way the Prophet used to sleep. Then close your day with the name of Allah on your tongue. Insha Allah, you will have a good, restful night.
19. Begin the Day on a Positive Note
Get up early. Get up thanking God that He has given you another day. Alhamdu lillahil lazi ahyana bada ma amatana, wa ilaihin Nushoor (Praise be to Allah Who gave us life after death and unto Him will be the return). Invest in an audio tape driven alarm clock so you can get up to the melody of the Quran. Or Let Dawud Wharnsby’s joyful notes put you in a good mood. Sing along if you like. Develop your to do list for the day if you didn’t do it the night before. Begin with the name of Allah, with Whose name nothing in the heavens or the earth can hurt you. He is the Highest and the Greatest. (Bismillahillazi la yazurru maa ismihi shaiun fil arze wa la fis samae, wahuwal Alee ul Azeem). The Prophet used to say this after every Fajr and Maghrib prayers.
20. Avoid Media Overexposure: Switch from News to Books
Don’t spend too much time checking out the news on the radio, television or internet. Spend more time reading good books and journals. When you listen to the persistent barrage of bad news, especially relating to Muslims nowadays, you feel not only depressed, but powerless. Cut down media time to reduce your stress and anxiety. It’s important to know what’s going on but not to an extent that it ruins your day or your mood.
21. Pray for Others to Heal Yourself.
The Prophet was always concerned about other people, Muslims and non-Muslims, and would regularly pray for them. Praying for others connects you with them and helps you understand their suffering. This in itself has a healing component to it. The Prophet has said that praying for someone who is not present increases love.
22. Make the Quran your Partner
Readingand listening to the Quran will help refresh our hearts and our minds. Recite it out loud or in a low voice. Listen to it in the car. When you are praying Nafl or extra prayers, pick it up and use it to recite portions of the Quran you are not as familiar with. Connecting to the Quran means connecting to God. Let it be a means to heal your heart of stress and worries. Invest in different recordings of the Quran and their translations.
“O humanity! There has come to you a direction from your Lord and a cure for all [the ills] in men’s hearts – and for those who believe, a Guidance and a Mercy” (Quran 10:57).
23. Be thankful to Allah
“If you are grateful, I will give you more” (Quran 14:7).
Counting our blessings helps us not only be grateful for what we have, but it also reminds us that we are so much better off than millions of others, whether that is in terms of our health, family, financial situation, or other aspects of our life. And being grateful for all we have helps us maintain a positive attitude in the face of worries and challenges we are facing almost daily.
24. Ideals: One step at a time
Ideals are wonderful things to pursue. But do that gradually. Think, prioritize, plan, and move forward. One step at a time.
25. Efforts not Results Count in the Eyes of Allah
