Masaru Emoto has photographed thousands of water crystals throughout his years of research, yet few have been as beautiful and life affirming as those formed from the words "love and gratitude." In The Miracle of Water, Dr. Emoto demonstrates how water's unique role in transporting the natural vibration of these words can help you welcome change and live a more positive and happy life. Dr. Emoto also explores the significance of words and language, their origins, and their impact on water. He introduces and explains the key concept of resonance -- the vehicle through which life-force energy is transmitted. From this knowledge, he draws out lessons that we can apply to our lives to reap the benefits of positive resonance, including more harmonious relationships, restored health, and improved communications. This thoughtful book includes new and extraordinary water-crystal photographs that provide convincing reasons for all of us to choose positive words and strive for perfect resonance for a more healthy, peaceful, and happy life.
The heart gets sick as the body does and
its cure is in asking for forgiveness and protection.
It also becomes rusty like a mirror does and
it is polished by remembering Allah.
The heart can also be naked like the body and can lose its dress and decoration, which is piety,
and it can feel hunger and thirst like the body does, and its nourishment is knowledge, love, trust, and offering service to Allah
The college professor had just finished explaining an important research project to his class. He emphasized that this paper was an absolute requirement for passing his class, and that there would be only two acceptable excuses for being late.
Those were a medically certifiable illness or a death in the student's immediate family.
A 'smart' student in the back of the classroom waved his hand and spoke up. "But what about extreme sexual exhaustion, professor?"
As you would expect, the class exploded in laughter. When the students had finally settled down, the professor froze the young man with a glaring look.
"Well," he responded, "I guess you'll just have to learn to write with your other hand."
The Messenger of Allah said:
أَحْبِبْ حَبِيبَكَ هَوْناً مَا
Love your loved ones moderately,
عَسَى اَنْ يَكُونَ بَغِيضَكَ يوماً مَا
as one day he may become someone you hate!
وَ اَبْغِضْ بَغِيضَكَ هَوْناً مَا
And hate the one you hate moderately,
عَسَى أَنْ يَكُونَ حَبِيبَكَ يَوماً مَا
as one day he may become someone you love!

It is saheeh as Shaykh ‘Alee al-Halabee shows in “Forty Hadeeth on the Islamic Personality”.
so think about that.......
The Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم said:
“The magnitude of the reward is proportional to the magnitude of the affliction. When Allaah سبحانه وتعالى loves some people, He tests them. He who is content (with Allaah’s decree) will receive the Pleasure (of Allaah سبحانه وتعالى); and he who is discontent will attain the wrath (of Allaah سبحانه وتعالى).”

The Muslim Ummah at the present moment is beset with problems. Muslims all over the world are suffering and dying , suffering under the oppression of tyrants and despots. Their blood is being spilled and their honour despoiled. Our mothers are crying, weeping at the death of their children. And throughout the globe the leaders of Muslim countries stand by and do nothing. We have no leadership. The Khilafah is destroyed and all that is left are kings and tyrants, each country only concerned with itself and oblivious to the plight of their brothers. What has happened to the unity of Islam? Where is the strength of our Ummah? The situation is hopeless. The odds are insurmountable and the obstacles too huge to overcome. Our enemies are too powerful and our strength too weak. What can one person do to change all of this? How can one individual hope to change the world? This is what the Shaitaan whispers to us, seeking to overwhelm us with despair. So he succeeds in this and we become inert and inactive. We become convinced that there is nothing we can do and so we simply wait: we wait for the arrival of the Mahdi and when he comes he will relieve us of all our problems. This is delusion ya akhi! And it is a deception to which many of us have seemingly fallen prey. Without a doubt, we believe in the coming of the Mahdi, but we cannot rely on him to solve our problems. Imagine if Salahudin al-Ayyubi had had that attitude: do you think al-Quds would ever have been liberated then?
So leave off sinning and return to obedience. Stop indulging in the haram and partake of the halal. Abandon the ways of West, of popstars and celebrities and follow the Sunnah of Rasulullah (saw). Command that which is good and forbid that which is evil. Seek forgiveness for your sins and turn back to Allah (swt) in repentance. Cast aside nationalism, this cancer which is destroying us as a nation, as an Ummah, and go back to the universal brotherhood of Islam. Live Islam! And fear Allah, fear your Lord Most High, for indeed He has said:
إِنَّ الأرْضَ لِلَّهِ يُورِثُهَا مَنْ يَشَاءُ مِنْ عِبَادِهِ وَالْعَاقِبَةُ لِلْمُتَّقِينَ
The earth belongs to Allah. He gives it as inheritance to whomever He wills of His slaves. And the successful outcome is for those who have taqwa.
(al-A’raf: 128 )
I say this to myself first of all. And with Allah is Success.
In any age Ibn Sina, known in the West as Avicenna, would have been a giant among giants. He displayed exceptional intellectual prowess as a child and at the age of ten was already proficient in the Qur'an and the Arabic classics. During the next six years he devoted himself to Muslim Jurisprudence, Philosophy and Natural Science and studied Logic, Euclid, and the Almeagest.
He turned his attention to Medicine at the age of 17 years and found it, in his own words, "not difficult". However he was greatly troubled by metaphysical problems and in particular the works of Aristotle. By chance, he obtained a manual on this subject by the celebrated philosopher al-Farabi which solved his difficulties.
By the age of 18 he had built up a reputation as a physician and was summoned to attend the Samani ruler Nuh ibn Mansur (reigned 976-997 C.E.), who, in gratitude for Ibn Sina's services, allowed him to make free use of the royal library, which contained many rare and even unique books. Endowed with great powers of absorbing and retaining knowledge, this Muslim scholar devoured the contents of the library and at the age of 21 was in a position to compose his first book.
Despite such glorious tributes to his work, Ibn Sina is rarely remembered in the West today and his fundamental contributions to Medicine and the European reawakening goes largely unrecognised. However, in the museum at Bukhara, there are displays showing many of his writings, surgical instruments from the period and paintings of patients undergoing treatment. An impressive monument to the life and works of the man who became known as the 'doctor of doctors' still stands outside Bukhara museum and his portrait hangs in the Hall of the Faculty of Medicine in the University of Paris.
