நம் அனைவர் மீதும் இறைவனின் சாந்தியும் சமாதானமும் நிலவுவதாக..ஆமீன்

இந்த பகுதியில் என் கவனத்தை ஈர்த்த கருத்துக்கள் பகிரப்படும்rt
B. Laughlin – Physicist, Nobel laureate 1998.

In his 2005 book, he says the following.

Evolution by natural selection, for instance, which Charles Darwin originally conceived as a great theory, has lately come to function more as an antitheory, called upon to cover up embarrassing experimental shortcomings and legitimize findings that are at best questionable and at worst not even wrong. Your protein defies the laws of mass action? Evolution did it! Your complicated mess of chemical reactions turns into a chicken? Evolution! The human brain works on logical principles no computer can emulate? Evolution is the cause!  Read the rest of this entry »

Ibn al-Qayyim: Patience Preserves the Health of Hearts and Bodies

Ibn al-Qayyim said in The Prophetic medicineregarding patience:

 

Patience is half of faith; for this is a quality composed of patience and gratitude (shukr). As one of the ancestors (salaf) has said: Faith is in two halves: one half patience, one half gratitude. And the Most High said: Indeed in that there are signs for each one who is patiently persevering and truly grateful[Surah Ibrahim: 5].Patience in relation to faith is like the head in relation to the body. It is of three types:

 

  • (1) patience concerning the obligations (fard) laid down by Allah, that one should not neglect them;
  • (2) patience in abstaining from actions forbidden by Him, that one should not commit them;
  • (3) patience concerning His judgments (qada’) and decrees (qadar), that one should not resent them.

Whoever perfectly fulfills these three degrees has perfected patience. For the pleasure of this world and the next, their blessings, and victory and conquest can only be reached over the bridge of patience, just as no-one reaches Paradise except by crossing over the Path. ‘Umar b. al-Khattab said: We attained the best of life through patience.

If you reflect on the degrees of perfection acquired in the world, you will see that they are all dependent on patience. And if you reflect on imperfection, which one is blamed for possessing, you will see it all stemming from lack of patience. Thus courage and purity, goodness and love of others, all this is the patience of an hour.

Most sicknesses of the body and heart arise simply from lack of patience. And there is naught like patience for preserving the health of hearts, bodies and spirits. For it is the great remedy, the mighty tiryaq, even if it were to contain only the company of Allah “for Allah is with the patient” [Surah Al-Baqarah:153], and His affection for them for indeed “Allah loves those who are patient“[Surah Al-Imran:146], and His giving victory to His people ‘for victory comes with patience’; and that it is a good for the people of patience, “And if you show patience, that is indeed the best course for those who are patient” [Surah An-Nahl: 126], and that it is the cause of prosperity, “O you who believe! Persevere in patience, vie in perseverance, be ever vigilant, and fear Allah, that perchance you may prosper” [Surah Al-Imran:200].

Its’ the Thought that counts

 

201006250959.jpg

“An hour of effective, precise, hard, disciplined and integrated thinking can be worth a month of hard work. Thinking is the very essence of, and the most difficult thing to do in, business and life. Empire builders spend hour-after-hour on mental work… while others party. If you’re not consciously aware of putting forth the effort to exert self-guided integrated thinking… if you don’t act beyond your feelings and you take the path of least resistance, then you’re giving in to laziness and no longer control your life.”   – David Kekich

What a brilliant Quote. The crazy lives that we lead these days leaves us so little time to think. Do you have thinking time marked out in your calendar? But even if you have taken your time out, what do you think about? Should you let your mind go racing behind whatever mental rabbit trail that it comes across or should you have a structured format through which you should apply your mind to? Here are some tips in random order to help you Think More and Think Effectively:

1. Take a Walk. Every once in a while, stroll alone. Be it the Mall, a Park. or just the High Street. Have no agenda, no friends, no nothing. Just you, yourself and 40 minutes of just allowing your mind to wander where ever it wants to.

2. The Write way to Think. Visit a cafe alone. It’s one of the most relaxing and therapeutic exercise you can do during a stressful day. Don’t take a book with you. And for Heaven’s sake don’t lug that laptop. However do take a notebook (once again not the laptop kind, but the old fashioned one with paper in them) with you. And liberally list out, whatever thought occurs to you. It might be something that you need to do today. It might be some strong hostility that you are feeling towards someone, whatever it is just keep that pen scratching that paper. While you are scribbling stuff out, build the thoughts already put on paper. So for example if you have put down the anger you feel towards somebody, think, why is it that you feel this anger? Put that answer down. Next you may consider, what is it that you can do about the situation, well then put down your options. The Rule here is not to write all this out neatly in calligraphic style but more about the quality of the answer as well as the speed in getting those thoughts down real fast. Keep at it, and an hour later of this thinking and you will emerge a much more focused, confident, stronger You. Read the rest of this entry »

Prophet Muhammad’s (S) first sermon in Madinah

Assalamu-Alaikum and Greetings  !

 

In the past, we posted an article that covered the last sermon of the prophet (S) that he delivered in Makkah. Today, you can read the first sermon that the prophet (S) delivered after he had arrived in Quba / Al-Madinah from Makkah but before he built his mosque in Al-Madinah.

You can read the sermon both in Arabic and English in the article that is posted below.

Although the sermon is not that long, to ensure that you get the most of it, read it multiple times and note the prophet’s (S) important messages that are equally valid and applicable today.

Also, if you are not regularly following IqraSense.com’s daily updates on FaceBook, you can click on a link below to read them. You will be able to see the many Duas and other messages from the Quran and hadith. As a number of them are in image format, you can save those images on your computer and E-mail them to others if you like to share them with others.
