to what follows My dear respected Brothers and Sisters in Islam As salam o aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato. And a very warm welcome to each and every one of you who have joined us, whether you have joined us in this house of Allah in this mosque in this masjid, whether you have joined us online on social media, or whether you are joining us in sha Allah hooter Allah through an any other medium, may Allah subhanahu to Allah keep us all steadfast, may Allah subhanho wa taala, inspire and guide us to all that will bring about massive success in this dunya and massive success in the Accra and we ask Allah subhana wa to Allah to bless us and to bless our loved ones with remarkable and
outstanding health. I'm in Europe and Al Amin. So tonight inshallah to Allah we are going to be discussing health, a very, very important topic that affects every single human being, whether they are Muslim, non Muslim, whether they are old, whether they are young, whether they are a male or a female. This is a very important topic. And so, when we look at ourselves as human beings, and wanting to be the best version of ourselves, I believe that there are four areas that we really always need to take heed of. And we really need to be mindful of in order to be the best version of ourselves. The first one is our relationship with Allah azza wa jal and that is nurturing our deen
nurturing our spiritual self nurturing our identities as servants and slaves of Allah subhanahu wata Allah. And so this is the first very important one. And we do this through either through having the correct belief and all of those teachings that are encapsulated in 6200 or 6236 verses in the Quran. And through the 1000s of Hadith and traditions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. The next relationship is the relationship with the people around us are more omelette, after the bad debt comes the morality and our interactions with one another, our interaction and how we believe in our prophets and messengers, the companions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, our parents, our
children, our spouse, our neighbors, Muslims, non Muslims, animals, it's very important to understand what the boundaries are, what the standards are, how Allah wants us to deal in when it comes to this relationships. The third area is when it comes to our wealth, we need to ensure that we make money because money is what will help us insha Allah Who to Allah, have the correct food and drink and shelter, and get married and all of those things that money does for us. And the fourth very important area is the area of health, that we understand health and we understand how important it is to be very healthy, and Subhanallah we know from our own selves having been sick, or the loved
ones that we may have lost a sick one loved ones that we have lost to illness.
We know how important and how it has a ripple effect when you are not the best version of yourself. If you are sick, you're going to be missing out on a lot and so we need to do our best to become insha Allah the best version of ourselves and after that, we leave it with Allah azza wa jal if he wants to test us with sickness he will and Allah azza wa jal says while unable to wander can be shy in mineral Kofi will do a we're not gonna see mineral am wily with Thammarat okay we're unable will not be shy in mean he said that we are going to test you. Allah subhanaw taala is going to try trial us in many ways. COF from fee will knocks in mineral I'm worried the loss of wealth
Well enforce life with Thermalright provisions. Okay, and Allah subhanaw taala mentions that we will go through tests in life. And so sometimes Subhanallah we might be going through a test, but that's in our favor to get us back on track. So it humbly led tonight in sha Allah Tala, we're going to focus on this fourth area, which is health, and SubhanAllah. We see today, the statistics are alarming, with people having bad health. And we see that statistics have revealed that millions of people are eating their way to death, or eating their way to death. Third, over 30% of the world are either obese or they are overweight. And subhanAllah. The remedy for this as if no, am Rahima Hula,
hula, Allah, He says, is knowledge and justice. So one of the things to remedy this is to have the knowledge to have the LM to have that knowledge is very, very important. And that's at the at the root of all goodness is religion, and Adam is knowledge and justice, and at the root of all evil is ignorance and injustice. So in sha Allah Huhtala tonight, you will, Inshallah, we will be
contributing and sharing some of our knowledge and some of our experiences in the area of health. Let's begin with a hadith that is found in Sahih al Bukhari, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, now I'm attorney Mark Boone on fee him fee him at Cathedral Mina notice that there are two blessings to niram that many people are wasting, they're not taking advantage of these blessings. And he said they are health, a Sahara welfare and the free time so we need to take advantage of our good health. And actually in another Hadith found in Buhari, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he endorsed the statement of one of the sahaba. Sandman when he said to Abu Dhabi, or the
Allahu Anhu. Matt. He said in early Rebecca Alika Huck were in the Linux secret Alec hacker in nearly alaka like a hack for articulate the hacking hacker. He said, Your Lord has rights over you. Your soul or yourself has rights over you. Your family has rights over you give each their due right. And so, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that Salman has spoken the truth. And in Al Hakim, we have another Hadith and maybe you sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he said he will tinium Harmsen public humps take advantage of five before five, take advantage of five things before five other things come about. And the first one he said you're used before your old age. So those those
of you who are youthful, and in Islam you are used between 15 and 33. And some even said 40 So if you are youthful, use that energy. Use that energy that Allah has blessed you with in the right way to set yourself up for good habits. Because once you're in the good habits Subhanallah those habits in the beginning they are disciplines. But once a discipline becomes a habit, it's no longer a discipline, it's a habit. So Subhanallah let's get into the habits now ourselves and with our families. Insha Allah Who to Allah, take advantage of your youth before your old age. Take advantage of your health before your sickness, do as much as you can while you are healthy, for you never know
when you are sick and Subhanallah In another Hadith, our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. He said that when a person when a person travels, or he falls sick, he falls ill, he will have the reward of what he used to do. We're who were so hung up man, that he will receive the rewards of what he used to do when he was in good health, and he was not a traveler, meaning Subhanallah by virtue of your goodness, during these easy times, when the tough times kick in, you're still going to be cooking up the hustle net and the reward by virtue of your habits, your good habits insha Allah hooter, Isla, take advantage of your wealth before your poverty, give as much as you can in
terms of wealth given to the poor giving to the needy, giving for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala you never know you can lose it all one day if Allah wills that to happen, take advantage of your free time before your preoccupation. Take advantage of your life before your death. And these are the words of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. And so we also learn a very important maxim of fic. That's a Islamic ruling, a very important one that is derived from this very Hadith that is found in Swindon. Imagine, a Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said lebara while the Aurora, let there be neither harming you any better, no reciprocating harm, don't do anything that's going
to bring about harm to yourself or to others, and so Subhanallah
up. It's very important then to try and learn about and understand what is it that can harm us in our physical body? What can harm our children what can harm our family and friends. And so So Pamela tonight, tonight's presentation about health has been inspired by the words of Allah subhanho wa taala. Tonight's lecture is inspired by the words of ALLAH from Surah Al Baqarah, That very beautiful surah the second chapter from the Quran, verse 168, Allah subhanahu wata, Allah says, Yeah, you harness Kulu mean nothing out of the HoloLens for a year, while I tell you what to wear to shape on in a whole lot, coma, I do want Mubin Allah makes a call out not only to the believers
here, Allah azza wa jal doesn't say yeah, you had an Athena ama No. He says over mankind the address to all of mankind, male, female, Muslim, non Muslim, he says, Oh, mankind eat from whatever is on the earth to conditions now he places that which is halal, permissible to eight, and that which is a Yep. Unfortunately, many Muslims or fortunately, many Muslims, they look for halal, that's a tick. That's a very good thing. But the unfortunate part regarding this area is that many of us are not looking for the pie year. By having maybe colloquial Arabic slang is nice, tasty by you. But when we look at the word linguistically pay, it means that which is wholesome, which is good in and of
itself, and good for consumption. So yes, we may be, we may be looking at the ingredients, we may be looking at the ingredients on a package when we buy something, checking to see if it's Halloween, but equally as important it is to be looking for whether the ingredients that are in there are going to do my body a favor, or they're going to do it harm, we have a duty to do this as well as per this area. So let us now be more mindful moving forward in our lives of what is by you what is good for us, because what we don't know can actually be killing us what we don't know could be actually causing damage to our bodies. So let us insha Allah Who to Allah be people have knowledge and not
just blind followers, let us do our due diligence. And one of the things that's important if we can, if we can in especially in this day and age when it comes to buy in, is to eat raw food is to eat as organically as possible, as feasible. Okay, in this day and age, we know that fruit that vegetables, many of them are sprayed with toxins with pesticides. And so there are certain protocols to clean them in certain ways, but even better is to purchase those fruits and vegetables in sha Allah to Allah that are raw, that are organic, that haven't been sprayed, so our bodies do not absorb the toxins. Now there are some fruits and some vegetables, you could probably get away with not
purchasing them organically. And that is things that have a hard show such as an avocado, such as a pineapple, such as an orange such as a pomegranate, whereby that particular fruit or that veggie is not going to absorb the toxins that have been sprayed. We need to be intelligent in sha Allah to Allah, human beings. And we need to be thinking like this insha Allah huzzah Isla, and so a quick look on Google and search. And if you look at for example, the Dirty Dozen and the Clean 15 If you look up Dirty Dozen on the internet, clean 15 You will learn which fruits and vegetables to go for that you have to be organic. And the ones that are you know, try and do your best to you can
actually purchase them in sha Allah Who to eyelet one of the one of the one of the non Muslims of the past, who studied health and knowledge about this area is Hippocrates. And he said something very interesting. He said Let food be your medicine. Let food be your medicine and medicine be your food. So Subhanallah how Allah subhanho wa Taala has provided for us many, many healthy good foods we have been created from Turaga we are the descendants of Adam. And when Allah subhanahu wa taala created Adam. He created him from the very soils that we walk on the very soils of this earth. And so we need the vitamins and we need the minerals that are found in the earth and those vitamins and
those minerals, much of them have been depleted as a result of commercialism as a result of pesticides and
toxins that are in the air and that surround us. And so this is why maybe we need to consider supplementation that we'll talk about in a moment. Insha Allah Who to Island? Let's look at Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and the area of health. In Bukhari. We learned that the Companions asked the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, while you were Shepherd, he said, there was no prophet who was not a shepherd. So that means to be a shepherd, you have to be quite fit. And now Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was a very fit young youth. And so we know that he would go climbing, he would go hiking to the Mountain of Light Jabba no no to enter into her Hara, and so Subhanallah for
those of you to be in hajj, or Umrah, you know how difficult that hike is, and our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would go there, and that's where he received the first revelation. He would take us to bar if PAH if is also on a very high area, and it takes about 45 minutes by car and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would go to five and in sunnah nessa if we learn how the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he used to travel to Masjid Oba. This Masjid Oba is on the outskirts of Medina and he would go there every Saturday, and sometimes he would go on his riding animal, and sometimes he would walk and then he would offer his Toorak art in Masjid Koba, and the
Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that whoever performs his will do in his home or in this day and age his hotel, and he goes towards mischief Baba and he prays to God, he will have the reward as if he performed the Umrah. In the Hadith, we also learned that Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he had the strength of 30 Min 30 Min, Allahu Akbar. And we know that from amongst the people have Porush was a man was a wrestler who wanted to wrestle the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam by the name of ro Khanna. And so one day he met the Prophet salAllahu alayhi wasallam in one of the side streets of Mecca and the prophets of salaam was alone.
And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was about 50 years old and Ro Khanna was young.
And so, Ro Khanna he said why when in the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said to him, why won't you feel Allah the prophets have always made Dawa to the people he came across? Why would you feel Allah and accept my preaching? And he said, if I know what you say is true, I would have followed you. That's what he said. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said to Cana if, if I can wrestle you Will you accept the truth? And then they will kind of said yes, and they began to wrestle. Picture this, and maybe you'll solve Allahu Allah, he was Sallam 50 years old, and he's wrestling who? He's wrestling a wrestler, somebody who's known for the game, and Subhanallah the
Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam threw him to the ground. And so he said, Do it again. Yeah, Muhammad and he did it again. Do it again. Yeah, Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and he didn't get and so and he said to him, this is extraordinary how you can throw me he said, You are the most hated of men. And now ash had to unlearn ilaha illallah wa shadow Anika rasool Allah, I bear witness that you that there is only one God worthy of worship and that you Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam of the Servant and Messenger of Allah. And this incident has been reported by Eben is half. And so when you look at the prophets and the messengers, you look at people like new highlight his
salatu salam Noah who built an ark, you look at Ibrahim alayhi salatu salam and his son is married and how they built the Kaaba and they smash the idols in their town. You look at Musa He just pushed a man and the man died Subhan Allah look at the strengths. These are our role models, and they should be the remote the role models of our children. In Santa Ana telemovie. We learned that in the Hadith, I did not see anyone walk faster than him, meaning the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam as if the earth folded for him. We found it very difficult to keep pace when we walked with him and he walked at his normal pace. sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was a fast walker, he would have foot
races in the middle of the desert. his young wife actually showed Allahu anha he's over 50 he she and he says to you want to race and he erases her. And she beats him in the race many years past and so and so Asha puts on some some some weight and he has a race with her. And this time, he beats her in the race. And so he was known sallallahu alayhi wasallam not to have a bulging stomach, but to have a flat stomach Subhanallah and so Subhanallah we find it's very important therefore, to exercise. We are a very sedentary people of today. Much of our work is on a computer. Much of our work is sitting down. We don't walk like they used to walk. We're not as active as they were
Uh, and so Subhanallah we know today, I'm sure if I asked a question if there was a hamburger and a bottle of Coke and fried chips that were sitting on a chair, which one is the worst? The worst for your health? Anyone? Any takers? Any takers? Hamburger coke chips sitting on the chair, which is the worst of these for your health? Coke. Huh?
Coke, anything else? Chips? Okay, the answer is depends on the chips. Of course it depends on it. They fried in
oil that is toxic, and, you know, very bad for your health. So the answer actually was the chair.
The answer was the chair. Because see those things we can burn them off. We can repent we can make Toba from them. Right. But the chair we always sitting on the chair we don't move. It's very important that we have Chanukah. And as the saying goes and how do I go to about Arca there is Binaca. You know, subhanAllah every Arabic word begins with a hierarchy. Every Arabic words don't begin with a sukoon with a second. Okay, and so Subhanallah very important. Subhanallah today, there are much and I'm sure if I asked you this question, you'll be able to answer it. How many steps do they teach us in this day and age that we should be walking on average every day? How much how many
is somebody said that 10,000 10,000 steps, right? So Pamela recently when I was in Medina, my hotel was not too far away from the Masjid. I was actually one of the closest hotels, okay to the measure the NABI sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and I had a watch that counted my steps. And all I did that day was go to the masjid, and back, Masjid, and back, and Subhanallah by the end, and just maybe a few things, nothing any heavy. And when I looked at my watch that night, I had done over 10,000 steps.
If you perform camera, how long does it take to perform camera,
an hour and a half, two hours, you get about 10,000 steps. So if you want to get 10,000 steps, it just means being mindful of walking about an hour and a half a day, maybe breaking it up throughout the day. Insha Allah Who to Ireland, so this is something you can think about today, there are some sports or some exercises such as, of course, whatever we say, It's good if you've got conditions in your body, to seek the to seek the opinion of the people in the area of exercise of health, that know about your condition that can really really assist you to make that right informed decision. So that's my disclaimer, Inshallah, before I mentioned the next thing, and that is, there is a there is
if you don't if you don't have the time, if you don't have the time to only have long training sessions. There is a four minute workout that you can do every day. It's called Tabata. It's part of the high intensity interval training that is also in circulation. What does Tabata mean? It means you go all out for 20 seconds, any exercise and you rest and you rest for about 10 seconds, and you do this eight times and your workout is finished, And subhanAllah they found amazing results in athletes something that you can look up in sha Allah Who to either do it two or three times a week perhaps and challah notice the difference and so exercise it helps release endorphins exercise will
help you deal with your depression and your anxiety and your stress and Sunnah telemovie we learn that the the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, the son of Adam does not feel any vessel worse than his stomach. It is enough for the son of Adam to eat a few mouthfuls to keep him going or to keep his back upright. And if He must feel his stomach then 1/3 for food and 1/3 for drink and 1/3 for air. And so Subhanallah you notice that all we need is a few more is a few muscles. All we need is a few bites just to get us going insha Allah Who to Isla and so it's like in this day and age, you know, we live to eat instead of Subhanallah eating to live and so we find in sunnah or we
find in Sahih Muslim, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said the strong believer is better and more beloved to Allah than the weak believer over there is good in each and so we always as Muslims striving to be strong in every aspect of our lives. We are balanced Muslims and balanced individuals. Now I want to share with you a very important statement by a great scholar YBNL km Rahim Allah hooter Isla
He put it so beautifully.
He said, the principles of Sound Health are three, the principles of good health are three. Number one, the preservation of good health, any, you preserve your health, meaning here by virtue of the nutrition, the good health, the good nutrition that you're going to have number two, by removal of the HA the harmful substances from your body. So he is talking about detoxification that we'll talk about in a moment. And then he's talking about keeping the body away from the harm. So there is what you put in your body, what you should be expelling from your body, and what you shouldn't even be exposing your body to in the first place. If you can understand this and implement this in sha Allah
hooter, Allah, you will find yourself by the permission and will of Allah azza wa jal in good health. So he mentions, for example, the first thing he said, by preserving your good health, and we said earlier, you can preserve your good health by virtue of exercise by virtue of eating organic by virtue of not only exposing yourself to the harmful toxins, some of some of the ways that also we can do this is by detoxification. How do you detox by simply going to the toilet you're detoxing, by by exercising and sweating, you're detoxing by going into a sauna, you're detoxing, by fasting cm regularly. Subhanallah there are in Islam, we have Ramadan, we have Mondays and Thursdays we have
1314 15 There is a white days of every month, we have fasting the month of shall well after Ramadan, six days, and SubhanAllah. We now learn through research and through science, and in more recent times the virtues and the benefits of fasting like what like it can cause neurogenesis, which is the formation of new nerve cells by increasing the brain derived neuro trophic factors, improvement of the hippocampus, this is the Jeep, the GPS of the body protects against plaque formation, increase insulin responsiveness, thus correcting the insulin resistance, decrease blood pressure and cholesterol reversing that depression. And today Subhanallah they have one diet, it's called the
five two diet, meaning out of the seven days, it what you want more or less good food that five days and two days fast, whereby you only have one meal that day that doesn't exceed about 500 calories. Does that remind you of anything? So yeah, maybe Mondays and Thursdays.
And now there is a big craze. And that's called intermittent fasting. And intermittent fasting has become very, very popular. It's something that I personally love, and many people around me have tried it. And it is amazing to add to our fasting as Muslims. What is intermittent fasting it means that you fast for about maybe 12 hours, 14 1618 hours a day, and you only give yourself a very small window of eating and that whole other day you're fasting and then some some schools of thought so you can have some coffee but no milk, nothing that's going to raise your insulin and other schools of thought say no that have anything even better, which is true, because that's how we do it as
Muslims. Now I want to move on to talking about nutrition and meat we find in the Hadith varies into Bharani and be happy and cheerful Albania Rahim Allah hooter either said, it is so here, he said, the milk of the cow contains healing she fat, it's fat is a medicine, and be and then he said, And beware of its meat, which causes sickness, beware of the meat, it causes sickness. But it's also been authenticated from the Prophet SAW Selim during the hospital without the Farewell Pilgrimage, that he sacrificed a cow for his wives. But at the same time In another Hadith, he's saying that it causes sickness. So how did the scholars reconcile between these two narrations? This they said the
intention behind the prohibition of cows mate is only referring to consuming large quantities of red meat. Not that it's haram to eat red meat, but you need to be careful how much red meat you are eating throughout the week, or marginal kappa or the Allahu Anhu herba. He said beware of meat. It has addictiveness, like the addictiveness of wine.
You can get addicted to meat, and Omar Radi Allahu Anhu.
During his free left, He prohibited people from eating meat two days in a row. You cannot eat two days in a row.
He only allowed them to eat it every other day. Now we move on to another hot topic, and that is fat, the fat of animals. Is it good for you? Does it cause cholesterol? How much of it can you have? Can't you have, and this has been for a very long time.
Many of the doctors and the scholars in that area have have have actually come out and said, It's the fat that causes the cholesterol. Recent studies are reversing this and making amendments activists. Now it's very interesting, because there's a very interesting verse in the Quran, that is found in sort of chapter six, verse 146. Here, Allah subhanho wa taala, is talking about the Jews, and punishing the hood punishing the Jews. And he says, and to those who are Jews, we have, we prohibited every animal with clothes, and of the cattle and the sheep, we prohibited to them their fat, except what it is to their back. So they in trails are what is joined with the bone. By that we
repaid them for their injustice, their rebellion. And indeed we are truthful. So here because of their rebellion, because of their injustice, Allah wants to punish them, how does he punish them by saying you can't have fat anymore. And the only fact that you're allowed to have is whatever is sort of stuck already to the meat that you can pretty much pull off, but it's going to be hard. We'll let you go with that. But you know what, you can't have fat anymore. There. Why is Allah azza wa jal punishing the Jews with fat is that there must be one, there must be some sort of goodness in the fat, it must be good for them in one way or another. And so animal fat is not responsible for
disease. It is the hydrogenated fats that are to blame. Things like culprits like canola oil, like margerine, like corn oil, okay, as well as artificial additives and foods. This is what's going to cause disease. And as time is passing by this no, there's no much doubt that more and more scientific studies suggests that fat isn't as dangerous, as we have been told. And that plaque buildup is the result of inflammation in the arteries. And so the real question is what causes inflammation? What is it that causes inflammation? Well, one of the primary suspects and we're hearing it a lot today is sugar, sugar. And so sugar has become a primary suspect in cardiovascular
disease, type two diabetes and obesity. And a study published in 2012 found that men who drank one sugar sweetened beverage per day had a greater had a 20% greater chance of having a fatal heart attack compared with men who only occasionally drank sugary beverages. And the sugar heart disease relationship holds true for women as well. So yes, sugar can be sweet, but too much can be a killer. And so we also know that when you have excessive sugar in your body, it weakens your immunity. We know that excess sugar feeds depression, we know that Subhanallah that sugar in this day and age has been masked in the ingredients. They will say they'll say things like fructose syrup. And so we need
to be mindful of the labels. Let's move on to milk milk. It's mentioned in the Quran. Allah subhanho wa Taala in Surah Nahal chapter 16 Verse 66, he says we're in hola como Phil Anam Isla Ebro, no stay calm me Murphy boo Tony. He mean benei Thirith in what I mean? Lebanon Cali Sansa Johan militia ribbon, and indeed for you in grazing livestock is a lesson we give you drink from what is in their bellies, between excretion and blood pure milk palatable, palatable to the drinkers. And so if you've been told that drinking raw milk is dangerous, you will be surprised to know that perhaps you've been misled. And so
what is raw milk? Exactly? It's milk that comes from grass fed cows, grass fed cows that is unpasteurized and and homogenized. And this means that raw milk contains all of the natural enzymes that Allah subhanho wa Taala put in the milk. It contains the fatty acids. It contains the vitamins it contains the minerals, the minerals, making it what many referred to as complete
Food, complete food and you will have people out there that will actually try and turn us away from raw milk and Subhanallah Allah azza wa jal who revealed this area to be recited until the day of judgment in his book, does he not know what's going to happen through time and the passage of time, yet he has a very clear verse here saying about the benefits of milk. And so we know that it reduces allergies, we know that it strengthens immunity, it helps improve the skin health, it helps prevent nutrient deficiencies, and it can be used to make probiotic foods and it doesn't contain added sugar or synthetic ingredients, and SubhanAllah. When we what we learned about pasteurized milk is that it
destroys many of the nutrients that make raw milk very beneficial. So why did they pasteurize it in the first place? Because it exposes the milk to very high temperatures, it kills off harmful bacteria and that are possibly able to make their way into the milk. However, as mentioned above, or previously, it's very rare for these types of bacteria to be found in milk to begin with, and Allah Subhana Allah knows best. And one of the best forms of milk is the camel milk is the camel milk, as we find in Sahih Bukhari and Muslim, some people came to Medina and they feel sick. And so the Prophet salallahu it he was so Mr. Lim told them to drink the milk and the urine of the camels, and
they recovered and they grew fat. And so camel's milk is also beneficial in treating hepatitis. Even it has reached even if the hepatitis has reached an advanced stage where medicine is unable to treat it. It's good for management of diabetes, it boosts immunity, it helps stimulate proper growth and development of bones and organs. high in iron content. Subhanallah ideal for preventing anemia prevents auto immune disorder lowers the risk of heart attacks and strokes. So Subhanallah there are many benefits that have been mentioned when hamdulillah Bill al Amin, now we move on to another very important healing in the Quran. When Allah referred to Schiefer and he referred to healing he
referred to two things two things
and ignored him Rahima hula hooter Isla he said, Allah in his book only mentioned the Quran and honey as cues. The Quran being the cure of the hearts, and honey being the cue the cure of the body. I'm not going to talk about the benefits of honey right now I'm going to leave this to one of the doctors in sha Allah to Allah. But what I do want to say in case it's not covered, be aware of where you purchase your honey. Be aware of who you buying your honey from. Yes, we know that there is manuka honey, a very good source of honey, we know that there is Yemeni honey, but did you know that much of this honey has been tampered with. And so we have to be mindful of this and doing our due
diligence in sha Allah Who to Isla. And so let's go for you know, organic honey to the best of our knowledge in sha Allah to Allah, regarding nutrition, I just want to share a few things and perhaps the doctors will elaborate inshallah to Iowa because our nutrient, our vegetables and our fruits have been depleted of much nutrients. If you know that you're not eating enough nutrients that contain the following
vitamins and minerals, then you would may want to be considered considering supplementation. And here I'm referring to five, some of the B groups the B complex, the B group vitamins very, very important. Magnesium is responsible for over 250 bodily functions, vitamin d3 And this is especially for our sisters who wear hijab who are not in sunlight between the best times to be in sunlight, which is 10am and 2pm. And iodine is another very good one an important one, especially when it comes to thyroid function. Another very important one is selenium. These
in my personal research, okay,
vitamins and minerals that we want to check in sha Allah hooter Isla and regarding detox hegemon, because there is so much toxicity in the in the food in the water, and Subhanallah one very important thing if you want to eat a lot of junk food, if you want to take in a lot of toxins, then make sure that you're taking a lot out. If you're not taking out more toxins than you're putting in you're going to cause a problem in your body. So make sure you exercise make sure you sweat do hijama regularly in Buhari the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said he
Feeling is to be found in three things. Drinking honey, the knife of the Kappa
hmm, and the quarter and the quarter realisation of the fire, although the process and did say to leave this as a very last resort, even in Ibn magia the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, I did not pass by any group on the night when I was taken on the night journey of salt but they said to me, the angel said to him, yeah, Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told your mama to do cupping.
If you're scared of cupping, don't be scared.
It's not It's a very beautiful experience. In telemovie, the best times the prophesy silan said the best times to be treated with cupping at the 17th 19th and the 21st of each lunar month. They refer to them as the Sunnah days. Although there is some talk about the Hadith, but in general, these are these are the preferred days very quickly. Another powerhouse is black seeds and habit too. So there are habitual Baraka in Bukhari and Muslim. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said in it, there is healing for every disease except Assam except death. And Buhari we read Khalid Ibn Syed said, we went out and Khalid Ibn Abdul Jabbar was with us and he fell sick. When we came to Medina, he was
still sick, even abbiati visited him and said to us, you should use this little black seed, take five or seven of them and grind them then mix it with olive oil and put drops in his nose. On this side, and on this side, for I Isha Radi Allahu anha the wife of the Prophet Arsalan
told me that she heard the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam say, this black seed is a healing for every disease except death.
Well, as Sam said, he said, What is Sam he said death. So Subhanallah even today, non Muslims are packaging, black seed oil, which is the if you're going to get it as an oil, if they you need to get cold pressed, preferably organic. With the black seed, it's important to grind it don't just have it, grind it so that your body absorbs it and it just doesn't come to pass. And if you can't do it, grind it in you need to go for the oil, there is some difference of opinion about taking the oil, but in sha Allah hooter, Allah, it will have the same healing effects as the seed itself. And so Subhanallah the non Muslims are even labeling it and they are saying, and I've seen it in my own
eyes of Allah who led the La ilaha illa, who they say it to was everything except death, but they do not attribute it to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. In conclusion, Mighty Brothers, mighty Sisters in Islam, Allah blessed you with outstanding health. A diet
shouldn't be the mindset, it should be a lifestyle.
And we need to start to do this collectively, as a family, as a community. Today, there are more hospitals, there are more doctors, there are more knowledge than ever. But there is more sickness than ever. Today, we have the highest rates of cancer, the highest rates of autoimmune heart disease, you name it, than any other time in a long, long time.
There's something not right. And if we can make medicine, food, our medicine, and medicine, our food and go for the head, and go for the PI Yip, then in sha Allah Who to Allah, we will not find ourselves in our loved ones in this situation. And so we have to change our limiting beliefs, the diet and the lifestyle starts up here. Even if we have to think our way, even instead of thinking our way into a new lifestyle when it comes to eating and drinking, perhaps we should start acting our way into a new way of thinking. And so we can't continue to do the same thing over and over again, expecting a different result. That is insanity. Don't wait for the perfect condition. Don't
say I'm going to do it later. I'm not ready. And so if you wait for the perfect condition, you will not complete accomplish much in your life. Get comfortable with uncomfortable. The beginning is going to be hard. It's very hard to divorce coke. It's very hard to divorce a lot of these things inshallah hooter Isla, and so let's always remember that the pain of discipline outweighs
the pain of regret.
and that your biggest competition is not your friend who's looking amazing or not this person or that person at the gym, it's you. You are your biggest competition. Tell yourself you can, and you can do it, tell yourself you can't, and you won't be able to do it and ask Allah subhanaw taala to assist you. And start with the little things about the big things be consistent, and that's what it's about consistency, which is the most beloved actions to Allah subhanaw taala. And don't be so certain about your views, or this person's views or that person's views or their opinions. They may have got it wrong, you have maybe got it wrong. Never be so fixed, be flexible and open to other
ideas. Willa hooter Island Island was SallAllahu wasallam over raka Island, the b&m Hamid which is a Kamala who Hayden salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
So I got
Thank You for that inspiring talk there chef.
I was only gonna go through being a pharmacist the you know, the some of the benefits of of the honey and the black seed that the chef had already mentioned and some other things I'll be quick I know we're running short of time and everyone's hungry.
So with the honey yet the one of the main things is in the chef touched on it, raw honey is
very, very important. Now a lot of the honeys you will find in the supermarkets are treated or heated and filtered.
And we know from this from the modern science now that heating honey basically gets rid of all of its benefits. So look for the raw honey
as adjusted organic as well. There is a lot of brands out there you got to be very, very careful.
So you know, there is a there's one brand that I know that I've seen another brother who is very into honey, he sends it, he sent samples overseas to check what what's inside it is inside it. And that's a brand called Watson's and sons. It's very good one from New Zealand, there's another one called Steens do your research, you'll be able to find it but the raw honey is is is very, very important.
And the Prophet sallallahu Sallam in some of the Hadith that the chef mentioned, he used to drink the honey with mixed with cold water. And the benefits of that is is panela so many years ago 1500 years ago now they know that heating the honey is no good. So you know putting in a hot drink is also no good. So if you're going to have the honey habit straight out of the spoon, or if you're going to put it in your tea put it when it's cooled down a little bit so you can get the full benefit from it. And that's something to remember
that raw honey
Subhanallah has 22 amino acids in it 27 minerals and over 5000 enzymes. So the benefits are amazing.
You know there's magnesium, selenium, zinc, iron all the things that the chef mentioned that we should be maybe considering supplementing, all this is found in honey
and also vitamin B six, environment B five and thymine and nice and all these things.
So honey filled with antioxidants it can it helps prevent heart disease, cancers and strokes.
Also used a lot now in helping mend wounds. So you can put it directly on burns and cuts and ulcers and now they're using those in hospitals. So it's part of them you know, modern Modern medicine is caught up finally
and you know, using these things in the hospitals
also, you know, well known and medically proven for cough so you know a teaspoon of the good stuff will help with the cough you know they even make special lozenges now and and cough mixtures with the
inside it. So also with digestive helps with digestive digestion, sorry.
So anyone with diabetes like should consider using honey instead of sugar for any of their you know drinks or cooking or something like that.
Also, it's a prebiotic
so it feeds the good bacteria in your stomach to grow and to help digestion.
Also used for dermatitis. So again, many, many, many uses.
Also, the chef didn't mention olive oil, I'm going to mention a little bit about olive oil. And there is a Hadith
from Abu Hurayrah, may Allah be pleased with him related from the Prophet sallallahu wasallam that he said the zet and use it as an ointment because it is produced by a blessed tree.
The Prophet sallallahu Sallam he was talking about the olive tree and the the oil from the olive tree. And again, you know, we just to reiterate what the chef was saying we the olive oil that we're talking about here is that the cold pressed the raw olive oil, not the one that's been plagued with and treated and tampered with we sometimes find so again, do your research
when you're when you're purchasing. And, again, olive oil, just like honey doesn't respond well to heating, all the good stuff breaks down once it's heated. So again, best to have the olive oil, raw and fresh.
And the benefits include and well known benefits is lowering of blood pressure. Helping with the heart lowering cholesterol, helps lower the blood sugar levels as well.
And something really interesting is that the the chemical structure of olive oil
is the most similar to the skin's natural oil than any other naturally occurring oil. So this of course, makes it at an amazing, amazing, amazing moisturizer.
And, Doctor, I think, oh, that's just wanted to give a couple of points there and then
Ismail Al Hamdulillah Alhamdulillah wa salatu salam ala Rasulillah Mohammed inshallah I will round it up. Okay. Also many information from the sheikh, and brother sorry.
First of all, I would like to mention I'm here
to share a few things and also um, care to take notes. And you know, learn from the shake and the brother side. Actually shake biller the noon is well known many years ago, you might notice that about more than 10 years been 15 years in this masjid, before it was renovated like this, we have lot of lecture for youth. At that time, Sheikh Bilodeau noon is one of them very active and teach I still remember one of the IR he taught us from surah Allah how to be laminated on when so no go to yoga flattens, Illa, Masha, Allah, that word he mentioned. And this was mentioned from Allah to the Prophet salatu salam that we will make you recite and you will not forget that our mashallah
attended time on my mind, you know, blown out and then always remember every time I refer to Sheikh Palau, the new mashallah and then our make dua that he will preserve him and allowed him to deliver more lecture and talk to benefit us inshallah. And me and
so many information from that I'll read recite the IR again. I will be laminated on your Yeah, you have to go do Mima fill out the hull into Yemen? Well, I thought who could do Adi shake one in the hula? Can I do one more bean and have a few specs I'm trying to
analyze this idea and then also what had been mentioned in all the knowledge that mentioned and first of all
it mentioned Hello that I'll shake already mentioned halal, that clear and then non Halal is clear. And hello you know lawful way non lawful well, you cannot deal with them, you know that something that you steal and then cheating they are not halal again something like that very basic one, we have to always look at the other side Hello. So with haram and good pure, we have to see the the other side on pure which is not good. So it apply everywhere. And the same thing that
the do not follow the footsteps step up shaitan that mean Who's Who do we still follow the follow the sila hint, that's like shake but he had teachings we follow them. So these are you know, very short. I
Aya give us a lot of insight good side and the best side we always this is the way of Quran that how Allah mentioned in the Quran like you see the opposite side like this malaria I will be laminated learned while acid in Santa Fe course in the Latina Amman huamu Solea what was the what was obvious to, you know, we all will be every human will be in vain, or will be loser except, so will the other side. So, the same thing,
when we look at the how do we apply the, in our practice, I will just give you a you know one scenario. For example, I'm a practicing doctor, so, if the person come to see me, or please check out for me, I'm afraid that you know peoples are getting stroke and heart attack, please check out for me. So, what I will do? I will ask question. First thing is we do ask question and then we do investigation, see what is the risk factor do you know are you might not know, I'll just cut Shawn out I want to do interactive, but time is very limited. So, I assess whether he has smoke or smoking one of the risks and he had diabetes he had cholesterol or no he had blood pressure whether he
inactivity and then you know obese or some of the things we cannot correct something like you know the old age, family history, you might have a family history this and then so we gather all information and we do all the tests. And then after that we just taught started talking about
each one have something, whether you had you know, we each condition have
reflect on this idea. Eat everything from the earth, which is pure good, a halal and pure good. So something that is not good for you don't take it that mean? So for example, if somebody have high blood pressure, what is no good for you? So you need to know. So we
according to religious research, we all know,
like a salt, if you have eating us very salty food, your blood pressure will be high. And so something like that no good for you, you avoid them is the only good part and you know, low salt foods, and then the same a diabetes. What is you know, high sugar, of course, it's not going to help you. So you have to be eating something that low sugar, the same thing. If you're inactive, what is your treatment, you know, very clear the sheikh had already mentioned we have to be do a lot of exercise and fasting and so many other thing, the same thing that our cholesterol, we need to be reminded and you know, the beta Sheikh had mentioned it, the one that
some of the Fed, which are the worst and animal fed, they are we call this transplant transplant actually those fed we need to be careful and then they put in in so many foods. So we need to be a little bit careful about this. So in sha Allah
we with the you know, the foods are plenty if I had to give a quiz today, I can do a quiz that what kind of food that
there are many many mentioned in the Quran, I have counted so many about 30 or 40 of them. Yeah, including the all the fruit, fruit and vegetable and all the milk and animal shaped camel cow fish, so many of them are Subhanallah in our religion and our guidance from Allah is unlimited. Our help that help sign is very limited actually, in the Quran. If you follow the Quran basic principle, you can not go wrong. And she already mentioned all the benefit and the
light cholesterol, we still have debating now, whether it's good or bad. So like, you know, it's started turning around, they're all high cholesterol. Not too bad. It's not really bad. But we need to look at the high cholesterol high cholesterol have to type high density, low density. And then if you have high density plenty it doesn't matter you know six or seven or eight if you have high density double, triple and you know you get the main idea is high density is liquid fire and then the flowing in the blood. They're not heavy so that they don't deposit in a blood vessel and low density is the worst one at transferred trans fat they come and they are very heavy. So that the
deposit in a blood vessel to the block eventually
blocked vessel, the same thing as sugar in flub causing the inflammation of the vessel that shaker mentioned, which is true, and then they'll narrow the blood vessel. So each one although the foods are everything's even the halal food, but something that no good for you you have to avoid. So in sha Allah
will will round it up and
reading that you know the
thing is so
Allah had mentioned in the Quran that you know, one of the IATA, I like to edit on is
on the elimination on Hulu was shabu wala Surah, foo. In the hula, you hippo mystery fee. So we have we can eat, we can drink, but do not waste something that waste that you eat too much. And you're all you know, unnecessarily and then Allah never like, never left those people. And then in sha Allah, our thanks.
Shake belongs to noon. And brother, country and
for the old insight and in sha Allah.
sha Allah Subhan Allah what behind the shadow, Lila elanda Forgot what do we lay, it was like a
doctor, they would like to thank our structure below the known, and also our brother, side. Now and Hamdulillah we have another 10 minutes, I would like to open the floor for questions, any question you have. For our panelist, feel free to ask. We'll take from the brothers section first. Any of the sisters have any questions? They can send them up on you can put them on our Facebook page, most of them as hot. Any questions for adult?
Just have a question regarding
interesting question or the conflict of interest here?
you know, yes, most of them are,
you know, chemically made.
You know, I'm always of the opinion, if you need it, you need it. If you've seen you've gone to the doctor, and he's given you a prescription, then yeah, it's something that, you know, you should take now in saying that a lot of these other things we've mentioned, a lot of them can be viewed as like preventative things, and I touched on that as well.
But you know what I recommend you, you know, just stop taking your diabetes medication and only take, you know, something else? I'm sure the doctor I don't know what his opinion on that is, but I'm pretty sure it'd be like No, no, just, you know, be careful.
Yeah, so I don't know, did I internet properly?
Look, I would say of course, you know, you to take the medicine, yeah, then you're not going to there is we do sell, you know, the natural medicines as well.
But these other chemical ones, there's a lot of tests that have been done on them to actually work. And normally, they're only for a short period of time. For instance, antibiotics might be for a week or so or a few days. Some of the longer term medications. Look, I'll be honest, I've seen people who
have been on blood pressure
medication, but they've done the hard work and they've lost weight. And they've regained exercise regularly, and they're off their medication. So, of course, there is a way to get off medication. But you've got to do the hard work for it. And the same with weight loss. You know, if you want to take my weight loss medication, you want to stop it, you need to do the work as she said, You got to get mobile, you got to change your lifestyle. And this is true for cholesterol, blood pressure and diabetes for a lot of the chronic illnesses.
It's possible not to take medication so but if you have to take and because you know your the other parts of your lifestyle aren't being met, then, you know, it's a way out.
Can I just add something to your mind? I think another very important message is that with the medical system, the medical system I know from my own experience of having visited GPS in the past is that the focus is more on the symptoms than the cause. And I think as knowledgeable Muslims in sha Allah hooter. Isla, we should be now
focusing on the cause, and not so much the symptoms, prevention is better than cure. And I believe to begin with every person should become their own doctor. But when I say that I say that with a little bit, of course, the only conditions, but do your own due diligence. So, So personally, I personally would really like not go anywhere near synthetic medicine. And unless I have done my absolute level best, and I've consulted every naturopath gone down every video possible to try and avoid that, I will personally not go down that path unless I have to. So for example, there are natural antibiotics. So for example, one of the most powerful antibiotics is oregano oil. Oregano
oil is very, very powerful. When I go to Amara, or go to, you know, when I travel, I take about six drops of oregano oil in a veggie capsule every day to strengthen my immunity. But hamdulillah it's done me a lot of wonders. I'm just sharing this hack with you. Okay, so let's focus on the prevention. Let's leave the synthetic medications as a very last resort going for the type going for that which is good for you. And if you are going to take antibiotics, this is just my humble opinion, that make sure you follow it up with a probiotic, because antibiotics do not differentiate between good and bad bacteria, that will just cause a mess. I mean, they'll clear up the bad, but
also clear off the good. So incorporated a probiotic and I'm happy to be you know, for the doctor to tell me otherwise. Did you want to add anything doctor? Oh,
yes, I will just, uh, you know, the, the natural way the prevention, what I have mentioned before the patient come to me, all I'm throwing is prevention.
I will not, you know, advising to take medicine, I will only advise them to eat all the food that which are helpful, and organic. And then do exercise. For example, I'm also study a little bit of Chinese medicine in Chinese medicine, either, or they have a very big topics on the food.
One subject is a food, and they're divided into
any word called neutral, one group, all the foods are neutral, you can eat as much as you like, but one group is whole. And one, you know, causing coal, and the other one goes in excessive coal. And then
another on the opposite side is one group, all the foods are
warm. And then when you need it, you can eat though, and then extreme group is one of the is very heat hot, very hot. So you need to eat them according to the simpler you know, the season and according to your knee. And if you eat wrong food, too cold too hot, you get imbalanced in your body, and then causing the problem in immunity. So balanced food is very important. So you have to look at the condition and when you're traveling, what you need to eat and this and that no Chinese medicine advice. I don't go very deep into that because I'm not the you know, expert in that Chinese food area. But I know if you need anything else I can get some translated version of the Chinese
food category. But the same thing in the medicine as well in Chinese medicine, the neutral, cold, too cold and warm and too hot. So they use the medicine according the to cure people, people but the food when you eat the good food, you're balanced, and when your body is balanced, the immune system automatically raise up so you need to you know, see that inshallah
we have two or three minutes just want to wrap up on words. No other questions or maybe this is a question or two. No, no more questions. Yes, brother.
As a supplementation, okay. So when it comes to the supplementation, personally, I would if you these these supplements would come in certain capsules. So you want to make sure that the capsules or veggie caps for example, that the company itself is reputable. So you might want to have to speak to people who are were very well versed in, in understanding supplementation and who are the players that are doing this. So there are different companies, okay. So so personally, like I said,
And you know better like with the magnesium for example, I would I would go for a magnesium spray. And that magnesium spray, there's one by Ancient Minerals, and you can actually just spray beneath before you go to sleep, you actually spray beneath your feet and your feet are actually sponges your skin is a sponge, and your whatever you put on your skin is absorbed into your body. So before you go to sleep, just a few sprays of
of the magnesium will help you absorb that. Another one is zinc, very important. Iodine is very important. Some of the bees so maybe you do a B complex, very important d3 For those of you not getting D so d3 for example, is very, very important for our not being so a lot of people even say that d3 and make and magnesium are very important for people who have have very depressive symptoms. So in any case, it's really important to just find out which ones we're not getting much from our food and we'll go from there Insha Allah, if there's no other questions,
no other questions in sha Allah with Tyler, we will wrap it up in sha Allah Who Tyler and once again, I just wanted to reiterate, that is important that we do go for the halal that we that we don't only focus on the Highland I think our focus for a long time has been on the halal, but we also do focus on the time. And I just want to share with you all on In conclusion, I want to share with you a platform that I have been working on personally with a dedicated team of Muslims in Australia, professionals and experts, I've noticed that there is we are not as united as I believe we should be as Muslims. So when Hamdu lillahi, Rabbil Alameen, we've got together to perform a plan
to create a an online platform, which we have called delille. delille means evidence delille means guidance. And so what delille is about, it's actually not just a directory, but that's a part of it. There lien is a directory of masjids of Islamic organizations of Halal restaurants of tradies of professionals. And the good news is you can add your own. And so instead of us going here and there, we actually go to each other to strengthen one another. And this is something that we see in the Jewish community that they work with each other. And I believe as Muslims, we have so many professionals, we have so many good, honest Muslims who are giving sadaqa who are giving there's a
cat and I would like to benefit them. So not only is their deal about a directory, but it's also a platform where all the events in Australia will be on one platform. So you can actually look up events for the youth, for your souls for health seminars, whatever is happening, you can even advertise. And it will all be on one platform, you no longer have to be subscribed to 100 organizations into here and there. You come to one platform, and you will know what's happening in the in your community anywhere in Australia. delille is about having also memberships. And that is by virtue of you there'll be daily membership rolling out what that means is that you're entitled to
discounts and loyalty system where you can get discounts from your Muslim brothers and sisters and the beautiful thing about delille the free listings, there are premium listings and the revenue from the lead part of that a lot. A percentage of that is going towards South Africa. And it's going towards a knockoff and it's going towards charities. So that is being launched on the seventh on the seventh of April. It's called delille.com.au. There is a pamphlet as you leave in sha Allah hooter ALA. And and this is something that I'm personally the founder of, and the director of in that in sha Allah hooter, Allah, I want to make our community, the Australian Muslim community, one of the
strongest communities in Australia and eventually Inshallah, around the world, because I believe we have a lot of potential, and we can really make some serious noise and do a lot of contribution. There'll be some articles about health, about relationships, beautifully curated articles. So let's get behind this initiative. Insha Allah and let's spread the word and let's strengthen our community to Zack Allah Who head on to our host, Michelle as har, Giselle Kamala Hayden to shout out to her to Chef abou Abdul Rahman to the team of as her Masjid sunnah. Will Gemma always a delight to be here to hamdulillah Bill Alameen that it's a blessing that we have such a beautiful community and may
