Could Depression Be an Allergic Reaction?

Could Depression Be an Allergic Reaction?Most people are still locked into the theory that depression is caused by a chemical imbalance in the brain – a shortage of feel-good neurotransmitters like serotonin that deliver messages from one neuron to another. That explanation works well for public consumption because it’s simple and it makes for great pharmaceutical commercials. But depression is…

The First Fourteen Days Of My Ramadan A Brief Mention 

Well ramadan has started and its going good I guess this is my second time fasting during ramadan ,

To be honest it has been hard on me let me explain it, matters not that I go without food it is the no drinking from farj prayer till marbib prayer that I have the most trouble with.

Normally when not fasting I chug water all day long , once I kept track of just how much water I drank during a 24 hour period and it was over 2.5 gallons this is not factoring in tea, coffee or any other type of liqiuds .
Ramadan started off with a series of bangs thats how they let everyone know here in morocco, I fasted the first two days then aunt flo arrived after iftar of the second day of fasting.

For  the next 7 days I didn’t fast but I helped out in other ways I helped cook foods chased children and washed clothes as well as tons of dishes .

I still wash the dishes whenever I find them you would believe how fast the dishes pile up.

I have been trying to read the Qur’an now that I am ovear aunt flo.​ It is slow going but in sha Allah I will finish it .

Today we made zemata a type of moroccan dessert it is yummy but very tiring to make .

The first 14 days of Ramadan have already passed and so far what I have learned is when its the hottest part oF the day try to nap or at least lay still under a fan .

After fast has been broken start drinking alot of water eat high protien meals soups and watermelon to help hydrate you .
  

If You Want to Find God Then Lose Yourself in Prostration

Originally posted on Muslim Words:One of the biggest challenges for me during Ramadan, and outside of it, is what to recite for Dua. More specifically, what to recite in Sujood (prostration). During Sujood, you are in the closest proximity to Allah. The Prophet ﷺ said, أَقْرَبُ مَا يَكُونُ الْعَبْدُ مِنْ رَبِّهِ وَهُوَ سَاجِدٌ “The closest…

A LIFE OF TAQWÂ

Marhaba Ya Mustafaﷺ

The essence and meaning of life is found in taqwâ and living a life of taqwâ essentially means being a true friend of Allah, attaining Paradise and possessing a heart that can understand the deepest depths of Divine blessings. Thus, the truth of taqwâ is that one attains a soul that has been purified of all evil and one turns to their Creator with true faith; this is the only way one can reach Allah.

taqwa_by_mystafa-d5ed8yc

What is Taqwâ?

The companions of Allah (may Allah be pleased with them) have described taqwâ in many different ways. The lexical meaning of taqwâ means the avoidance, protection or safeguarding from every kind of evil. That is, taqwâ means the protection of Allah.

The term taqwâ means being under the protection of Allah by seeking refuge in Him, avoiding what has been forbidden and abiding by what has been commanded; it means fearing…

JUZ 10 – POINTS TO PONDER (Part 1)

Alhuda, The Quran Club

Juz10Part 1

bismillah2 copy

Surah Al Anfal Ayahs 41 to 75

  • [8:41] Wealth should be distributed according to the rules set by Allah. Whether it’s booty or any kind of wealth it all belongs to Allah. A fifth share is assigned to Allah, and to the Messenger and remaining four are for mujahideen.
  • [8:43-45] Seek Allah’s help, be patient and steadfast during difficulties. Sometimes there is khair in them. The problem usually is huge but Allah lessens its effect on His servant so that he can deal with it according his capability. Remember Allah with dua and tasbeeh when you fear people or situations. Stay away from mutual disputes.
  • [8:48] Sometimes we feel so “good” and strong and we feel like no one or no hardship can overcome us – this is from shaytan who is trying to make you forget about Allah. Always know you are completely dependent…

JUZ 10 – POINTS TO PONDER (Part 2)

Alhuda, The Quran Club

Juz10Part 2

bismillah2 copy

Surah At-Tawba  carries forward the same theme of behavior during times of battle. This chapter was revealed at the time of the expedition to Tabuk, in the 9th year after Hijrah. By this time, the Islamic state was well-established and well-organized, and Islam was spreading throughout the region. At the north, near Tabuk, the Islamic empire approached the boundaries of the powerful Roman Empire. The decision was made to act forcefully in the northern region in order to protect the Muslims who were living in the border region, and to establish the Islamic empire as a force to be reckoned with, not another fledgling movement that the Romans could easily crush. The Muslims won a moral victory when the Romans withdrew from the area rather than face battle.

The themes of this section deal with the nature of warfare and the sanctity of treaties. Muslims are to negotiate in good…
