00:00:00--> 00:00:03

Bismillah here's what you

00:00:06--> 00:00:09

spend on the Lhasa masala do Samia want

00:00:10--> 00:00:18

to proceed? So today inshallah we will go over some of the Healthy Habits from the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu sallam. And

00:00:20--> 00:00:57

this you know, this may be reminiscent of something people like to call prophetic medicine or Islamic medicine and I think that the proper way of looking at this is basically to discover the healthy habits that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam had taught us, not just to be focused on honey and black seed and certain prescriptions the Prophet sallallahu Sallam used or prescribed. Because I will tell you why. I personally don't believe that there is a genre of medicine called Islamic medicine.

00:00:58--> 00:01:27

We will come to it you know, during this during this talk, but we have done a lot of injustice to the Prophet sallallaahu element to Islam, by being focused on certain prescriptions the Prophet used, that were widely in use in Arabia during this time, it's not like these are things that have not ever been used before. And the Prophet sallallahu Sallam is the one who, who first prescribed them. We have done a great injustice

00:01:28--> 00:01:36

to basically Islam's contribution to human health, when we focused on, you know, certain

00:01:38--> 00:01:45

herbs or certain foods that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam may have used or may have prescribed.

00:01:47--> 00:01:56

So, let us talk about how Islam contributes to human health and Islam contributed to human health in three major ways, enormous ways.

00:01:57--> 00:02:00

One way Islam contributed to human health is by

00:02:03--> 00:02:25

basically the healthy habits. So everything that is Islamic is healthy. And we will see I have 100 slides, I actually have more than 200 slides, but I tried, you know, I understand that I have 40 minutes. So I figured 100 slides and 40 minutes, maybe like pushing it, but we'll try to go through them.

00:02:27--> 00:02:30

But certainly I would have not been able to cover the 200 slides.

00:02:31--> 00:03:15

Because everything that is Islamic from the time you wake up in the morning, if you truly follow the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam or the way of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam in, in, in the general sense of the word in the larger sense of the word. Everything Islamic is conducive to health and not only mental health, because that's what people may. That is what comes to mind first that you know, Islam, mental health, psychological health, and so on. But it is not limited to mental health, although it's a big part of it, but it is also physical health. So that's one big way. It's non contributed to health. And that's the biggest contribution. It is basically basically teaching

00:03:15--> 00:03:39

us a lifestyle that is conducive to help physical and mental. The other big contribution is that Islam liberated the human mind, when the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said to the Sahaba and come out and be Mauritania come, you know best to the unfairness of your donia Islam liberated the human mind, he basically told them when it comes to medicine, when it comes to sign says, it is upon you

00:03:40--> 00:03:58

to discover treatments because Allah subhanaw taala had man's Allah who, then elands Allah Hoda and alima alima guajajara and Jayla. Last one I thought I have not brought down a disease, except that he brought down the treatment for it,

00:03:59--> 00:04:14

regardless of who knows it and who doesn't. So, but when the Prophet said to them, You will know the best of the affairs of your donia. He just told them, that this is all about discovery. It's all about, you know, investigation and discovery.

00:04:16--> 00:04:20

Go for it. And they did. And we know that. Obviously,

00:04:21--> 00:04:34

despite some of your concerns that you may have about avison as sort of this course in on the divinities, but obviously Hannah had a book that was taught in Europe for 300 years as

00:04:36--> 00:04:48

basically the canon of medicine. It's known the canon of medicine was thought it was considered by in the words of William Osler, the founder of the Medical Library, and

00:04:49--> 00:04:50

he it was considered

00:04:52--> 00:04:59

the medical Bible in Europe for 300 years. Not only ever center, but there were many many Muslim scholars.

00:05:01--> 00:05:19

Or I'm sorry Muslim scientists and Muslim physicians and Muslim surgeons even that contributed a great deal to the course of medicine and that was because of what the prophet sallallahu Sallam taught us. And because of that liberation of the human mind

00:05:20--> 00:05:29

that Islam came to actualize that achieve. So let's go over some of the Healthy Habits from the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu sallam.

00:05:31--> 00:06:12

First, like I told you it's it's Suna in the general sense. Eman faith is of the Sunnah of the Prophet souls on another sin and the limited sense whether it is the 50 or so the sort of terminal usage, technical use of the word sin, but the way of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, so it is of the way of Prophet sallallahu Sallam to be in remembrance of Allah subhanaw taala and to have a connection and to have faith in Allah subhanaw taala Dena Amano aatma inoculum visit guerrilla Arabic related manual polu those who have believed and whose hearts are assured by the remembrance of Allah unquestionably by the remembrance of Allah as our hearts become assured.

00:06:15--> 00:06:42

So Herbert Benson, of the Harvard Medical School found that faith quiets the mind that like no other form of belief, like no other form of belief. So it's not just the tell us it's not just the purpose in life, it's not just to give your life a meaning. So because some people say that faith gives you a life and meaning well be also fighting for Planet Earth, you know, environment, environmentalism,

00:06:43--> 00:06:58

socialism, whatever those people can look for purpose and meaning and life, outside of the religion, certainly it would not be fulfilling like religion because we have the god gene, as you may have heard,

00:07:00--> 00:07:14

but it's probably a spiritual gene. But we do have this it's the remains of the Federal the remains of the primordial covenant, lockdown Edwin, with Arabic and many other moons over in veriato, Shadow Armada unforeseeable has become.

00:07:15--> 00:07:39

So we will, but we do have this need, and nothing fulfills it except faith except, you know, belief in God. So it is not just that you're going to pick up any interest or any sort of hobby, and that will give you that fulfillment, you will never have that fulfillment until you connect with the eternal, the immortal.

00:07:40--> 00:07:41

With God.

00:07:42--> 00:08:30

David Larsen, also of the American National Health Research Center says, among Americans, religious believers suffer 60% less heart disease suicide rate is twice as high for non religious women than religious women, religious believers are seven times less likely to have bad blood pressure. And these are so the fact that and even atheists are not arguing about this anymore, that they are trying to explain it. The fact that that religious people are healthier, they have better health, and that's religious people in general, that's not just the Muslims, that's people who recognize the, the divine and people who have recognition of God and they recognize the divine.

00:08:31--> 00:08:46

But atheists quit arguing about this, they used to be arguing about this a little bit more in the past, but they stopped arguing about this, they're trying to explain it as sort of like an evolutionary sort of process and,

00:08:48--> 00:09:10

or something that has to do with you know, customs and social constructs, whatever explanations they have, but the fact that religious people have better health, physical health is not really controversial, the stats are stacked up in favor of this proposition.

00:09:12--> 00:09:13

And then

00:09:14--> 00:09:34

so that the belief in Allah the belief in Qatar and and when you know, its effect its impact on mental health and subsequently physical because you know, how mental health affects physical health and physical health affects mental health. It's a two way street. So most of them and we'll see with them a lot of the LFM physical malefic

00:09:35--> 00:09:35

Brian

00:09:38--> 00:09:59

Franco Bhima Atacama Lodi, hypokalemic, Talon for food, so no, no misfortune can happen on earth or in your souls. But as recorded in a decree before we bring it into existence, that is truly easy for a lot in order. Allah is telling us I'm telling you this I'm telling you that everything has been transcribed and

00:10:00--> 00:10:19

I'm telling you about predestination about predetermination. In order that you may not despair over matters that pass you, pass you by, nor exalt over favors bestowed upon you, for Allah loves not any vainglorious booster.

00:10:20--> 00:10:49

Okay. Herbert Benson again, says that faith in God is the best preventative tool for such stress and to promote healthy immune system, believing that one hand and I shouldn't point with my hand, believing because he's talking about God's hand, believing that one hand is in control of everything eases the mind, believing that one hand is in control of everything is the mind.

00:10:50--> 00:11:39

And Edward kragen from Mayo Clinic, the scribes the best way of stress management is what he says acknowledging that life is not always fair. It is acceptance, it is rather, you know, the concept of river that we have in Islam. So there is Qatar, we believe in predestination, but then the concept of river acceptance of that which you cannot change, changing that which you can, that which you can change and accepting that which you cannot change and believing that it is not about this life, there is you know, another life where the, you know, Justice will be established, Justice will be completely actualized in that other life, it may not be established in this life that is extremely

00:11:39--> 00:11:50

liberating for the for the mind that liberates fear from stress from grief because if this is a this is extremely unfair, isn't it?

00:11:52--> 00:12:16

It would be crazy if another Muslim American was remain American for Docomo should we then treat the submitters those who submit to our way of like the criminals, how do you judge a you know, could this be it, it cannot be it because the victim and victimizer will not be treated equally or not, will not basically end up in the same place.

00:12:19--> 00:12:26

The glory of the glory and the majesty of this universe should tell you that the glorious and the majestic who created it

00:12:28--> 00:12:31

is not unfair to basically

00:12:32--> 00:12:39

to make this life are our only existence because if it is the only existence it is extremely unfair.

00:12:43--> 00:13:04

Then moderation. moderation is an important concept. The moderation on both ends is an important concept. Solomon Fattah Kumara hobbema attacked them in order that you may not despair over matters that pass you by nor exalt that is excessive happiness alone once you know for in power and sometimes is,

00:13:05--> 00:13:08

you know for political earlier Franco Hieronymus

00:13:09--> 00:13:14

Mati fabrisonic for the Franco Hieronymus my own tell them in laws,

00:13:15--> 00:13:30

very analyze bounties and in His mercy let them rejoice, so far has not condemned evil per se, but exalting it is excessive power. And as far as that is accompanied, accompanied by arrogance forever that is accompanied by heedlessness, that is not

00:13:31--> 00:13:41

that is not good and that is condemned and the poor and so it is exalting it is excessive for and it is excessive

00:13:42--> 00:14:14

grief, that have been forbidden for us. Even the profits or loss and I'm even certain this hadith which which teaches about moderation in emotions, the manner of after one and Macedonia, Cronenberg indica, calm and so a lot of those whom you love within with moderation. They may be your foes one day, hey, those whom you hate with moderation, they may be that your loved ones one day. So it is moderation, even in emotions, don't hate too much, don't love too much be moderate.

00:14:17--> 00:14:38

And basically, people who have bipolar disorder, they don't have this ability to restrain themselves from the two ends of the extreme the two ends of the spectrum. They can't restrain themselves from excessive grief, they can't restrain themselves from excessive love. And it says here that

00:14:40--> 00:15:00

if progressing faster than expected, we feel positive and are inclined to slack off a bit. But for people who have di D which is bipolar disorder, they would be less responsive to unexpectedly high progress than would control sub subjects. So when they are happy, they just

00:15:00--> 00:15:09

Continue to be happier and happier and happier. And there is no rule for the happiness and it just and it could be certainly pretty explosive.

00:15:13--> 00:15:51

When it accurate when it comes to the acts of worship and I'm giving you a sample of the different sort of QA a than a bear that and just like a sample of everything when it comes to the way of the prophets Allah Salaam, but when it comes to the acts of worship, one of the things that the prophets of Sodom tried to really protect us from is OCD, particularly that religious people in general tend to be OC, these people and they're also the manifests particularly in tahara, and Salah, they, you know, you know, the stories and some sometimes they're extremely sad stories and May Allah subhanaw taala cure everyone who has

00:15:52--> 00:16:02

these issues. But But there are some people who repeat their 16 1718 times there are some people who repeat their Salah, you know, 789 10, and

00:16:03--> 00:16:05

countless number of times,

00:16:06--> 00:16:53

and the Prophet sallallahu Sallam have tried so much in it with so many regulations, but even when it comes to faith in in general, the prophet SAW Selim tried to tell us, calm down it, it isn't, it's in a lot of hands. So feel that dependence on Allah, you're not going to be able to do it. If you think that you will be it unless you show your brokenness you're in besar to Allah and trust put your trust in Allah subhanaw taala show your brokenness to Allah and let Allah save you. Because salvation is in his hands. It's not in your hands. linnaean Dr. Hartman Kumamoto, who perelandra Rasul Allah, Allah Allah, Allah Allah, Allah, Martin matin Sadie duardo, Jose on mina dolger, while

00:16:53--> 00:17:14

pasta, pasta blue, so now one of you will be saved by his deeds. They said, Not even your messenger of Allah, he said, not even me unless Allah bestows mercy upon me. So do good deeds properly and try to come close and worship Allah and before noon, and in the afternoon, like you know, up.

00:17:17--> 00:17:46

Observe your rituals, every once in a while, and during a part of the night and adhere to moderation, that you may reach your target. So, is that is sort of the holistic approach to the issue of faith. And Allah, the prophet SAW Selim wanted to tell us, come down, you know, just put your trust in Allah, show your brokenness to Allah asked him to help you cross that ocean.

00:17:48--> 00:18:12

And don't rely on your skills, your talents, your capacities, because that could certainly be very distressful. If you think that you're across it and you're on your own, but put your trust in Allah, do your best, put your trust in Allah and ask him to help you cross it. Not only this, but with technical issues. Also, you know that,

00:18:14--> 00:18:55

you know, some of these rulings, I removed some of the slides but some of these rulings you're familiar with. So the prophet SAW Selim tells us if you feel that you have broken your will do you know like something came out of you like you passed when, for instance, don't leave your masala your prayer area, unless you hear a sound or fire smell an odor or something of that nature or many, many rulings, to the extent to the extent that the scholars have made a legal Maxim out of the many rulings or multiple rulings that basically tell us certainty is not negated by doubt. Do not let the doubt

00:18:56--> 00:19:09

destroy you do not let the doubt the doubt devour your inner peace. leaky last would be sec certainty is not negated by doubt, if you if you made will do.

00:19:10--> 00:19:53

And this is the last thing that you remember although the Maliki's would disagree with us, but according to the majority at least, but if you made will do and this is the last thing that you remember, you have to do until you you know until you are certain that you broke it until you are certain that you broke it. So many, many rulings the Prophet sallallahu Sallam tried to help us because it Allah knows that religious people tend to be a little closer to us. And Allah knows that we He wants us to be religious people to be observant to be conscientious about our worship, but he does not want that conscientiousness to cross the limit into being destructive disease or, you know,

00:19:54--> 00:19:55

obsessive compulsive disorder.

00:19:57--> 00:19:59

Okay, so bias caution versus

00:20:00--> 00:20:01

obsessiveness

00:20:03--> 00:20:23

we're gonna go over this now let's just move on to some of them. You know, a solid federal federal to Hamza Donal estado pasado de Lima avanafil EBIT. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam said the federal our natural inclination natural disposition or original inclination. People translate this in many so many different ways, but it is furterer

00:20:24--> 00:20:53

is five five things circumcision, removing the pubes, trimming the moustache, cutting the names and plucking the armpit hair. And in another Hadith the prophet SAW Southern mentioned 10 of them. And so growing the beard, trimming the mustache brushing the teeth, clipping the nails rinsing the nostrils, you know the nose, nostrils, washing finger joints, plucking armpit hair, the pubes

00:20:54--> 00:21:04

certainly is ninja or cleaning oneself after using the lavatory. All of these are parts of the federal

00:21:06--> 00:21:51

and this is George Bernard Shaw. In his book The doctors dilemma. He said formulators of the superseded native religion like Muhammad, Muhammad Sallallahu, wasallam had been enlightened enough to introduce as religious duties such sanitary measures as ablution. And the most careful and reverent treatment of everything cast off by the human body, even toenail clippings and hairs. And our missionaries thoughtlessly discredited this godly doctrine without supplying its place, which was promptly taken by laziness, he is talking about, you know, epidemics that spread in some Muslim countries that were conquered and colonized. Because of basically, people have walked away from the

00:21:51--> 00:22:03

original sort of teachings, the way they used to do things, and they have not been supplied and there's that new, better ways or newer ways, new ways or better ways.

00:22:05--> 00:22:23

So health, maintenance, hygiene, rinsing the nostrils of the mouth and brushing the teeth. So, proper toileting practices, using the right hand for drinking and eating and the left hand for cleaning, abstention from sexual relations during the menstrual cycle, all of these are considered to be

00:22:24--> 00:22:32

part of how hygiene the prophet SAW Selim used to eat with his right hand, he kept his right hand for his eating and drinking and his widow

00:22:33--> 00:22:39

and his and giving and taking you know, dealing with people and he kept his left hand for other than that,

00:22:41--> 00:23:25

for other things like you know, cleaning oneself and things of that nature, you know, that this interrupts something called self infection, which is the anal oral route reinfection. I mean, if there are doctors in the crowd, they would know that, so, that interrupts the the inner roller out there, to a great extent, because of us people who observe this, if you count, if you count to the germ load on the right hand and the left hand, you'll find the top much much higher on the left hand than the right hand and if you keep if you separate the two hands in the sense that this is dedicated to certain things, this is dedicated to other things, then you will interrupt to a great

00:23:25--> 00:23:31

extent to that email or on route of transmission which leads to self infection or re infection.

00:23:35--> 00:23:41

And then certainly the prohibition of you know, relieving oneself in 34

00:23:43--> 00:24:00

when a person relieves himself in the road where people walk or in the place where they seek shade, all of that was prohibited and the prophets of Southern causes the cocoa these things align in the things that bring about curses.

00:24:04--> 00:24:37

And Okay, so let's now move on to will do and if you know hand washing the way you know how many times we wash our hands every day, you have to do this with every will do and simply hand washing with water is is particularly important and this is off the Mayo Clinic website they're talking about how it is extremely important that we wash our hands more often. And how dangerous it is that we are not washing our hands enough and despite the proven health benefits of handwashing many people don't practice this habit as often as they should.

00:24:42--> 00:24:59

This you know you know my mother which is raising the mouth and see why if you combine Mother Mother and celiac you know even if you don't do su act but my mother, if you look at this where the arrow points it says after drinking swish your mouth out with water to dilute the sugar

00:25:00--> 00:25:14

If you brush your teeth twice a day, once in the morning and once in the evening and that set that is not enough, ask any dentist, they will tell you, it is not enough because it takes much less time for the remains of the food

00:25:15--> 00:25:18

to start to work on your enamel.

00:25:20--> 00:25:41

So it's not 12 hours, it takes much less time like three to four hours I think. So every three to four hours, you just need to at least dilute the sugar and your mouth by raising your mouth raising your mouth happy this celiac with every solo hour with every will do and then you'll be all good dental hygiene wise.

00:25:43--> 00:26:29

So, the next thing that we do after my mother after we wash our hands and after my mother thing, next thing that we do is to basically raise our nostrils. And you will find these studies where you know the study the first one was published and the laryngoscope second one is in published and rhinology first one says that nasal irrigation has an enormous potential of improved improving the quality of life of millions of patient in a very cost effective way the second one said knees of Duchenne which is like nasal irrigation as a valuable adjunct in the management of chronic rhinosinusitis which is a condition that so many millions of people suffer from and the neti pot

00:26:29--> 00:27:14

that that is here is basically to help you. The amazing thing is that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam and the hadith of Lupita Massara which was reported by Abu Dawood, he says we're better for this than shocky inlanta Guna saw a man Ballack for a sudden shock the Prophet usually does not say balogun anything because he came to teach us moderation. So he doesn't like overdoing anything but he said overdo the instant sharp because naturally were were less inclined to do goodness than shark. They like to you know, raise your nostrils it is not a pleasant experience. Right? So people usually do this and and that's it and so the purposes of them here in particular, he said overdo it,

00:27:14--> 00:27:22

except if you're fasting don't overdo it if you're fasting but otherwise overdo it so that you could wash the the sort of the inner parts of your nostrils

00:27:23--> 00:27:24

much of the

00:27:26--> 00:27:43

you know the the pollens, dust mites, etc. may accumulate inside your nostrils and it will be effective enough that you just simply raise your nostrils bathing if you look at the times, down below.

00:27:45--> 00:28:32

Times Online on March 26 2009, the dirty secrets of Bath time, the year 1000 common error the Crusaders returned from the east with the news of a delightful custom the Turkish bath bath houses are built all over Europe. So that that idea of bathing itself is an is an idea. Like do you find any religion requiring this much bathing? There is no religion that requires this much Basie and if you look at it that is required after ejaculation of semen intercourse menstruation, postnatal bleeding, some added upon conversion to Islam as well. And even taymiyah from Allah said for joma if one has an offensive odor, and it has been said for Jamal regardless of offensive odor, we even wash

00:28:32--> 00:29:20

the dead and the majority considers it a communal obligation but recommended to take a bath in religious gatherings as well as all types of gatherings and that includes jamas the two Aedes Eclipse prayer Prayer For Rain standing at the heart of and much oral haraam before stoning the Dhamma rot change one's mental or physical condition, such as for one who went insane or fell unconscious when he recovers or she recovers. And after coping, etc. It's also recommended for some acts of worship, such as entering a harem some hold it's recommended after watching that that based on a controversial report, but but in terms of like require the bathing and recommended bathing

00:29:20--> 00:29:24

there is no religion that we know of that requires this much bathing

00:29:25--> 00:29:29

in addition to the will do the minor ablution

00:29:31--> 00:29:59

prayers and bow with those who bow studies stated that hip flex position 90 degrees facilitates lumbar traction by flattening the lumbar spine and decreasing the loading effect of the psoas muscle on the lumbar spine during traction studies. Another study stated inversion helps to negate the effect of gravity on the spinal column and there is also this is the bowing but this is the prostration these

00:30:00--> 00:30:25

See this inversion table it is basically to bring your head lower than your feet. So that because most of the time your head is higher than your feet, and if you bring your head lower than your feet, then blood circulation will reach the inner crevices of your brain. And this is the found this to be important for your mental health for your brain health. But this is what we do every time was to do right, bring your head down to the floor.

00:30:28--> 00:30:34

Okay, so prayer helps evaluate and I have many, many slides on prayers, but

00:30:35--> 00:30:53

anyway, physically, physically, the conclusion of this study is that physical activities in in involved in the performance of salaat helps in the rehabilitation process and disabled geriatric patients. There is this talk about the chakra points and the prayer, you know, matching

00:30:56--> 00:30:57

or exceeding yoga

00:30:58--> 00:31:07

to some sense to some extent, putting it all together according to Benson Henry Institute for Mind Body medicine.

00:31:10--> 00:31:11

Sort of like a

00:31:12--> 00:31:40

part of Harvard I guess. It is part of our over the they actually started to pay attention to this earlier than many other universities, that relationship between the mind and the body. And recitation of the relaxation response is actually quite easy. There are two essential steps repetition of a word sound phrase, prayer or muscular activity, passive, this regard of every day thoughts that inevitably come to mind and return

00:31:42--> 00:32:05

to and return to your repetition. So that is for sure. And that's repetition of words, sound phrase prayer or muscular activity, we do it all. That's what Salah is about. Repeat words, sounds, phrases, prayers, and muscular activity. And you should do this with kashua. So with passive disregard of everyday thoughts.

00:32:07--> 00:32:10

Kind congregational prayers have health benefits.

00:32:11--> 00:32:18

And this is from the Amman declaration, health promotion and Islamic perspective. And this was a UN

00:32:20--> 00:32:59

Conference, the fifth stage of Brock's Ito, and colleagues, model is dissemination and reassessment, updating community analysis and profiles. He says here, in addition, several other channels of communication can be identified within an Islamic community, which include the mosque, basically, part of part of maintaining health is the ability to have meeting points and people who go like people who go on missionary, or, you know, whatever.

00:33:01--> 00:33:35

expedition expeditions like medical expeditions, people who go on medical expeditions, and even, you know, we call it missionaries. But anyway, it's medical expeditions. So people who go on medical expedition realize the importance of having a meeting point where the people in the village come together because if they don't come together, you cannot really disseminate information. Within this village, hell, you know about health, about epidemics, about the need for vaccination about anything, there is no point of dissemination of information and the congregation prayers do serve that purpose for us.

00:33:36--> 00:33:45

As a cat and the effect of the cat on health, this is the also an element. But anyways, the cat supports, you know,

00:33:46--> 00:34:11

medical institutions, you know, you do need financial support, second supports medical institution in addition, the cat does relieve us from the guilt of being rich, there is a guilt associated with being rich, and that helps us overcome that guilt. And it helps us and certainly if you are also charitable, in addition to your as a cat, you could get rid of more of the gift.

00:34:14--> 00:34:25

And it is called a cat which is purification, because not only that purifies our hearts of greed, but it purifies the heart of the poor also of envy and hatred of the rich.

00:34:27--> 00:34:29

Sorry and social health.

00:34:30--> 00:34:35

legislations of communal obligations, congregation services, a Catholic charity, there are so many

00:34:36--> 00:34:59

the social health is extremely important and the Sharia is is very much into and I heard like a pastor one day say that Islam is a very individualistic religion and I, you know, where did you bring this from? Like, you know, this is like, quite interesting, because Where is this? And apparently, you know, I guess misconceptions that have no basis

00:35:00--> 00:35:01

Most of the time,

00:35:02--> 00:35:28

but there is so much that is required of us to do in public and there is so much that is required of us to do for the interest of social health, some fasting certainly I will not talk about some because I can be, you know, put like 200 slides here only on Psalm or fasting. So, I'll skip this, but, but, but everybody is doing it, you know, this

00:35:29--> 00:35:41

everybody that this is almost irresistible knowledge, I had amadori remember from the smalti lecture yesterday, this is become irresistible knowledge that fasting does help

00:35:42--> 00:35:43

even had.

00:35:46--> 00:35:49

So it says here, it can be sad. What

00:35:50--> 00:36:24

it's linked to health to the indirect point on Islamic health continuum can be said to be the psychodynamics of rituals and beliefs and prayers, which play a big role in building up an individual sense of coherence, through cellular cellular genic mechanisms as described by 11. But also through reinforcing factors and the sharing of knowledge, beliefs and values, strengthening their positive attitude and strengthening that concept of the human brotherhood and human power bond. Read

00:36:25--> 00:36:29

Malcolm X's autobiography, and as experienced and hard

00:36:31--> 00:36:32

to realize that

00:36:35--> 00:36:51

so everything that we you know, Metallica, Cheyenne, Illa, Hassan, I mean who are Metallica, Metallica, sharara, monometallic, hieron illa de la mala he has not left anything that's evil, except that he warned us of it is not left anything that's good, except that he encouraged us or

00:36:53--> 00:37:11

recommended it to us. So gambling if you look down below, you'll find that heavy episodic drinking at the multivariate results indicated that all levels of gambling were associated with significantly elevated risk of at least weekly h Ed, which is heavy, episodic drinking,

00:37:12--> 00:38:05

gender and family. And if you if you look at this picture, you will find that the darker the color is, the higher the prevalence of HIV, this is about HIV prevalence. And the darker the colors, the higher the prevalence of HIV and if you look at the lightest colors, where are the lightest colors, the lightest colors are predominantly in Muslim countries. This is what the missionaries called area 10 440. Right area 10 4010 below the equator to 40 above the equator, then area 1040 is the Muslim area. So in this 1040 area and 40 you will find the the lightest colors and this is not basically because we have the best health systems contrarily we don't this is because of Islam, nothing else.

00:38:05--> 00:38:14

What you're what Bernard Shaw or George Bernard Shaw said in the doctor's dilemma, that is the only protection that we have, you take that away

00:38:15--> 00:38:21

and we don't get into the red, we probably get into what you know. Anyway.

00:38:22--> 00:38:28

So Islam teaches us that love is not only limited to love of a member of the opposite gender,

00:38:29--> 00:38:40

I actually should change this wording. Love is not only limited to lustful love but there's you know the love of your neighbor, the love of your mother, the love of your

00:38:42--> 00:38:47

the love of God, the love of your community, the love of your country, the love of your land, etc.

00:38:50--> 00:39:03

And even when it comes to love of the member of the opposite gender, it is only regulated. It's not contemptible, condemned, but it's only regulated on it and flockmen enforcement as well if it's gonna allow the Alabama kumada War of Mine, Exotica De Palma de corrode.

00:39:05--> 00:39:25

You see the language that is being used here when it comes to spousal spousal relations. It's a beautiful language and among signs is this that he created for you mates from among yourselves that you may dwell in tranquility with them. And he has put love and mercy between your hearts verily and that are Signs for those who reflect.

00:39:26--> 00:39:27

But so many regulations and,

00:39:28--> 00:39:29

you know,

00:39:30--> 00:39:35

the me to movement should have taught us many, many lessons, right? So the

00:39:36--> 00:39:52

teacher that made us proud of are the proud of the regulations we have proud of the sort of the restrictions we have, yes, they are called restrictions. We should rejoice in those restrictions. We should enjoy those restrictions and re joy.

00:39:54--> 00:39:58

Enjoy them and rejoice in them and I have only nine seconds

00:40:01--> 00:40:03

Can I borrow three minutes or something?

00:40:06--> 00:40:06

Okay.

00:40:08--> 00:40:12

But when it comes to like family in Islam and the treatment of the problem of old age,

00:40:13--> 00:40:22

you know a better way to die. No, we don't need to talk about this, even punishments in Islam, but I can focus so hard on the other boundaries for you and legal retribution.

00:40:24--> 00:40:25

Saving of life

00:40:26--> 00:40:48

or your people of understanding. So punishment, it is it's basically the deterrence theory, crime can ultimately be prevented through altering the cost benefit ratio of such behavior, crime can ultimately be prevented through altering the cost benefit ratio of such behavior. So whenever someone tells you,

00:40:49--> 00:40:51

the barbaric Sharia

00:40:52--> 00:40:54

you really need to,

00:40:55--> 00:41:02

you really need to be to feel very bad for them, because they, because of this their extreme ignorance.

00:41:03--> 00:41:04

And

00:41:07--> 00:41:31

first of all, we are not trying to force our Sharia on anybody, we are minorities, we do know that we're not forcing our sorry, on the majority. But again, at the same time, we should be very confident in the plan and the sun and the teachings that came in the Quran and the Sunnah. And we should understand the superiority of the revelation.

00:41:32--> 00:42:20

No, we should not have any doubt about this applicability and how to apply and all of these things. That's a different story. We can talk about this, we can discuss these matters. For another, you know, different time we can have like, go to Starbucks and talk about these issues. But when it comes to the, when it comes to having confidence in the revelation, you should have unwavering confidence in the revelation, whatever is being said, you know, the two arms of the deterrence theory or what the like the likelihood of getting caught, and the benefit risk ratio of the crimes. So if you increase the risk for for the criminal, increase the severity of punishment, then that

00:42:20--> 00:42:51

will alter the benefit risk ratio of the crime. And the likelihood of getting caught is not as important when it comes to the deterrence theory than the severity of punishment and you'll find this. This is from the policy studies journal Selvi, Amanda's and colleagues they talked about the severity of punishment has a significant negative effect on crime and does indeed matter on deterrence theory or as deterrence theory tells us

00:42:52--> 00:43:03

and this is a meta analysis of about 150 studies. By the way, this is not just one study. This is a meta analysis of so many studies, 150 studies

00:43:06--> 00:43:22

you know, the the concept of forgiveness and how to be forgiving and the benefits, the health benefits of forgiveness. We're Lost Planet Allah says, When our captain fabulously Malcolm De Leon, bottom lower highroller submarine and if you are patient, and if you forgive then it's better for the patient.

00:43:24--> 00:43:28

While you're having messinian and loves the doers of good

00:43:30--> 00:43:32

eating, eat little.

00:43:33--> 00:43:40

You know how you know there are many a hadith about this calorie restriction. You see the fellow on the left side.

00:43:43--> 00:43:57

He's only 27 years old. The fellow on the right side is 29 years old. There's almost like sort of a generation between them. One of them was put on a calorie restricted diet and the other one who ate whatever he wanted.

00:44:00--> 00:44:01

Eat wholesome.

00:44:03--> 00:44:16

Quinoa, Florida had Atlanta eba and things that were mentioned in the plan are all superfoods by the way. Everything that was mentioned in the Qur'an in terms of foods, these are all super super foods, olives, olive oil, honey pomegranates.

00:44:19--> 00:44:48

The prophet SAW them even paid attention to the slaughtering of the animal because if he's if the animal is stressed, when he is not an animal, he talked about how to be merciful to the animal, not sure the animal, the blade, make the animal comfortable, all of that stuff. This is not only good for the animal, but this is important that you need to be merciful to the animal and the profit capitalization consideration but it's also good for us because the hormones that gets released in the body of the animal if the animal is killed in in the improper way, are very harmful to us.

00:44:49--> 00:44:54

These are the stress hormones, so tirmidhi reported from Abu Dhabi.

00:44:55--> 00:45:00

The Messenger of Allah wa sallam forbade eating gamma sama, which is the animal that has been told

00:45:00--> 00:45:02

And shot to death with errors.

00:45:05--> 00:45:17

Also that whatever you're feeding the animal of the Father that is given to animals that you have to pay attention to this because of mad cow disease, you don't feed the animal notice that mad cow disease spread like in in

00:45:18--> 00:45:30

Britain and America because they were feeding the animals, the corpses of the dead animals, incinerating them, crushing them and re feeding them to the animals and that is

00:45:31--> 00:45:33

I mixed them jalala

00:45:34--> 00:45:51

the prohibition of all harm smoking would be prohibited on the basis of the provision of all harms. We can we don't need to even talk about the health benefits of the radical prohibition of wine but it is you know, if you look at this

00:45:52--> 00:45:55

advertisement, what what

00:45:56--> 00:46:18

what's really interesting here is that zero percent alcohol that there is always that emphasis on zero percent alcohol, because like a pregnant woman, for instance, can suffer major consequences if she consumes traces of alcohol because there could be an idiosyncratic response to alcohol and it is not necessarily amount dependent. So

00:46:20--> 00:46:45

the only the only management The only proper management of alcohol is complete prohibition radical prohibition. It proportionately the prophets all sudden told us to eat about milk and he mentioned that cows eat from old trees so that that is the food pyramid the prophets are Solomon saying that milk has the food pyramid because the cows eat from all the trees

00:46:49--> 00:46:55

eat mindfully don't eat when you're walking don't eat when you're like sit down and have like a sort of a like an eating ritual

00:46:58--> 00:47:00

sleep guidance the perfect sleep treatment wake up early along vertical multivariable Korea perfect sleep here when it comes to sleeping early. Why did the prophets Allah seldom talk about

00:47:31--> 00:48:03

the best night prayers or the prayers of Prophet the wood because he like you see all stage four here happens in early sleep it does not happen and they in later Later in the night. So if you sleep the first half of the night, you wake up with one for one third and do your night prayers and you sleep close to the end of the night. Then that would be the anti Lula payload also this is an NIH study about pay Luda and NIH that they recommend to their parents to their employees to have that early

00:48:05--> 00:48:09

afternoon, a pre noon or early afternoon nap. But anyway

00:48:11--> 00:48:30

there are many others and if you truly live, if you truly follow the sun from the time you wake up in the morning, until the time you go to bed. That is what healthy lifestyle is about. So now lifestyle is healthy lifestyle. healthy lifestyle is a lifestyle. everybody
