Benefits of Fruits


EATING FRUIT…

It’s very informative

We all think eating fruits means just buying
fruits, cutting it and just popping it into our
mouths. It’s not as easy as you think. It’s
important to know how and when to eat.

What is the correct way of eating fruits?


IT MEANS NOT EATING

FRUITS AFTER YOUR MEALS! *
FRUITS SHOULD BE EATEN ON
AN EMPTY STOMACH.

If you eat fruit like that, it will play a major
role to detoxify your system, supplying you

with a great deal of energy for weight loss
and other life activities.


FRUIT IS THE MOST IMPORTANT FOOD.

Let’s say you eat two slices of bread and then a
slice of fruit. The slice of fruit is ready to go
straight through the stomach into the
intestines, but it is prevented from doing so.

In the meantime the whole meal rots and ferments
and turns to acid. The minute the fruit comes
into contact with the food in the stomach and
digestive juices, the entire mass of food begins
to spoil….

So please eat your fruits on an empty
stomach or before your meals! You have
heard people complaining every
time I eat watermelon I burp,

when I eat durian my stomach bloats up,
when I eat a banana
I feel like running to the toilet, etc.
actually all this will not arise if you eat the
fruit on an empty stomach. The fruit mixes with
the putrefying other food and produces gas and
hence you will bloat!

Graying hair, balding,
nervous outburst, and dark circles under the eyes
all these will NOT happen
if you take fruits on an empty stomach.

There is no such thing as some fruits, like orange

and lemon are acidic, because all fruits become
alkaline in our body, according to Dr. Herbert
Shelton who did research on this matter. If you
have mastered the correct way of eating fruits,
you have the Secret of beauty, longevity,
health, energy, happiness and normal weight

When you need to drink fruit juice – drink only
fresh fruit juice, NOT from the cans
Don’t even drink juice that has been heated up.
Don’t eat cooked fruits because you don’t get
the nutrients at all. You only get to taste
Cooking destroys all the vitamins.

But eating a whole fruit is better than drinking the
juice. If you should drink the juice, drink it
mouthful by mouthful slowly, because you must
let it mix with your saliva before swallowing
it. You can go on a 3-day fruit fast to cleanse
your body. Just eat fruits and drink fruit juice
throughout the 3 days and you will be surprised
when your friends tell you how radiant you look!

Drinking Cold water after a meal = Cancer!

Can u believe this?? For those who like to drink cold
water, this article is applicable to you. It is
nice to have a cup of cold drink after a meal.
However, the cold water will solidify the oily
stuff that you have just consumed. It will slow
down the digestion. Once this ‘sludge’ reacts
with the acid, it will break down and be
absorbed by the intestine faster than the solid
food. It will line the intestine. Very soon, this will
turn into fats and lead to cancer It is best to drink
hot soup or warm water after a meal.

A serious note about heart attacks

HEART ATTACK PROCEDURE’: (THIS IS NOT A JOKE!)
Women should know that not every heart attack
symptom is going to be the left arm hurting.
Be aware of intense pain in the jaw line.
You may never have the first chest pain during
the course of a heart attack. Nausea and intense
sweating are also common symptoms.
Sixty percent of people who have a heart attack
while they are asleep do not wake up. Pain in the jaw
can wake you from a sound sleep. Let’s be careful and
be aware. The more we know the better chance
we could survive.

this…..could save your life!!

The Fruit of Sincerity by Mindful


There was a boy named Tahir, who lived in New Brunswick. He was second eldest out of siblings.  From childhood to adulthood, he had been taught about Islam in a very understandable and nice way.  Therefore, he was a good example for his siblings, after his elder brother.  Because his older brother was on his own now, Tahir had the responsibility at home.  Even his friends knew how strict and firm Tahir was, but even then some were there with evil intentions.

One day, Tahir went to play badminton with a couple friends.  On the way back, they stopped for drinks at a local store.  Tahir didn’t take the drink that they took because it was root beer.  The boys’ tried to get Tahir to drink some giving excuses such as “It isn’t real beer!” “It’s just a name!”  But Tahir refused saying, “Say what you want boys, but what’s in doubt should not be drunk at all!” And he drank cream soda.

Next time, after playing their game, each boy was drinking their own drink, when one of the boys’ named Nasir gave him a can with the label of cream soda on it.  The label was in place so neatly that Tahir didn’t notice and drank it, keeping in mind that it was cream soda! The taste wasn’t much different, so Tahir was unaware.  The boys saw this and all laughed then the Nasir asked, “So…how’s it?” Tahir replied normally, “It’s good…because cream soda always is..” Nasir just laughed and kept quiet.

When Tahir arrived home, he felt some weird feeling inside himself.  Then he had a sudden urge to vomit and he ran to the bathroom.  After he was relieved, he said to himself, “This is all Nasir’s doing…Istaghfirullah!” “He fooled me into drinking root beer…La hawla wala quwwata illah billah!”

The next day, upon meeting Nasir, Tahir didn’t fight or shout, but calmly said, “May Allah guide you to the staright path…Aameen!” Nasir just stared and acted as if nothing was wrong, then said, “Hey pal, what’s the matter?” “you feelin’ ok?” Tahir continued, “You think you can get away with your pranks, but Allah is watching.” “He saves whom he wishes and destroys whom he wishes.” “Repent dude and come to the truth.”  Nasir had no effect. Instead, he said sarcastically, “Huh, listen pal, I don’t want preaching, you hear?” “So what if you found out eh?” “A prank…haha..nothing to be serious about.”  Tahir shook his head and said, “May Allah open your heart.” and left.

Because Tahir was kind, patient, and resistant, Nasir had an effect.  A couple days after, he came to Tahir, ashamed and apologetic. “Sorry man…thought about what you said…it made me feel guilty…” “I want to learn more dude…could you help me out?” Tahir forgave him and Nasir came more and more towards Deen.  Tahir became a top figure in the community for his personality and reputation.

Allah had chosen Tahir as a means of giving hidayat, so whether big or small, all folks respected and followed his advices. Tahir’s household was known as a source of light to those in the community and he excelled in all, worldly and Islamic things.
