  1. Islam covers all aspects of life. How do we decide how much water we should drink per day ? I would like to know this from our noble Shia school of thought perspective Thanks in advance May God grant you success
  2. 1. I have read a hadith of Imam Ali AS that says : " Forgiveness is the best revenge. " In another hadith of the Commander of the faithful I read " The best revenge is to improve yourself, " 2. I am not sure about this but I was suprised that I read a hadith of one of the imams (AS) that drinking water while standing is tastier ( and possibly also healtier , in the same hadith ) But If I am right there are also hadiths that says drinking while standing is bad and drink while you sit. Could somebody give some knowledge about the first point ? Is it about context ? And maybe, even though I did not mention the hadith somebody can help with the second point. Thank you all and may God grant you succes.
  3. Wudu Water

    Salaam, When doing wudu, do you let the water run while washing different parts or turn off the faucet every time and turn it on? I will confess that I leave the water running but I don't turn the faucet fully on either. Any rulings on this?

  7. Hi everyone, So I occasionally hear about this fluoridation of public drinking water and how it concerns some people. Ill start by saying, studying water quality is what I do just about on a daily basis, so I figure it wouldnt hurt to give thoughts. So basically, for those who aren't aware of the water fluoridation topic, public water supplies in a number of countries have fluoride additives. This compound by dental professionals is considered to help prevent tooth decay and cavities. Basically, by dental professionals, it is considered to be better for human health. On the other end of the discussion, you have people who feel as though they should have the right to choose what is in their water or not. And if the government has control of water supplies, hypothetically they could harm us if they contaminated the water we drink. Other people go further and propose ideas about fluoridated water and how it harms brain development of people, effectively brainwashing everyone. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- So in studying water, most countries have environmental standards. Regulations that say, you cannot have X concentration of Y in the water you drink. If Y concentrations were discovered, you would typically have to shut down that water supply and clean it up. These standards are developed through referencing fluoride related research and its harmful affects. So there are a few questions I am seeking to shed light on in this topic. 1) What amount of Fluoride is harmful to us? 2) What Standards are in place for Fluoride? 3) What amount of Fluoride is our country supplying to us? -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 1) What amount of Fluoride is harmful to us? http://www.cdc.gov/fluoridation/safety/nas.htm https://www.nhmrc.gov.au/_files_nhmrc/file/your_health/fluoridation/20160824_evidence_report_final_1.pdf http://ehp.niehs.nih.gov/1104912/ So I took three documents of a number I've looked through, noted above. Everyone is free to add or reference their own. But it may help to simply have a read through them if anyone is interested. Most expansive studies appear to reach similar conclusions. Those conclusions being that higher concentrations of fluoride can harm human health and brain development, typically in children (lower body mass equates to greater affects of smaller concentrations of fluoride). Everyone is free to read the conclusions of each document and to make what they wish of them. Just out of curiosity, I did a lay persons statistical analysis of data provided in the Harvard study and derived my own conclusions from it. Basically, if anyone understands, I calculated upper and lower confidence limits of both harmful concentrations of fluoride and non harmful concentrations, then removed statistical outliers to try to give a more accurate conclusion to the data that harvard is providing. These being based on Table 1 of their research paper. Basically, and this is just my personal messing around and is by no means a conclusion of a greater value than any greater scientific organization, but... The mean concentration of fluoride in drinking water that is considered safe is 0.89 mg/L. The mean concentration of fluoride in drinking water that is considered harmful is 3.08 mg/L I would suspect that if you drink public water with a concentration of fluoride greater than 3.08 mg/L regularly throughout your life, you may be harmed. Again this is more of a lay interpretation of data. Its just me spending a half hour playing with numbers and isnt exactly an in depth analysis. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 2) What Standards are in place for Fluoride? 3) What amount of fluoride is currently being supplied to us? This question comes down to what country you live in. If you live here in the US, each state is going to have its own standards that are applicable to EPA regulations. Currently the EPA is proposing fluoridation at 0.7 mg/L. Which is lower than the mean concentration of fluoride in of statistically safe drinking water, as per the above referenced studies. Also, there are state regulatory limits. In New York, just as an example, there is a regulatory limit of 2.2 mg/L fluoride in public water supplies. This means that, public water is regularly monitored, and should there be greater than 2.2 mg/L fluoride discovered in your public water, they will shut the water supply down until they treat the water. New York actually has some of the cleanest drinking water in the US. So basically, if you live in the US, youre likely safe in regards to fluoride in public drinking water. If you drink natural water from the earth in your own private supply well, that is a different story, however, public supply wells in most states are regulated themselves by municipalities, so even if you went to a local park, your water is likely fine. Also, so far as I am aware, even with the installation of a potable water well for private use, youre still required to demonstrate safe drinking water quality before you can legally use your well. I have stuff to do today, so I guess ill leave the topic at that for now.
  8. Asalam alaikum was rahmat Allah wa barakatu. Hi everyone, I am sorry to ask an awkward question on a public forum, but I am a new muslimah and would really appreciate any information! My husband likes one of us to always be wearing some article of clothing (normally it's socks) when we are intimate. He says that it will keep shaitan from reaching our child if I were to become pregnant. I have tried googling this and have found opinions of scholars that say that there is no reason for couples to have to wear clothing during intercourse. However, these are all Sunni resources and my husband is Shia. Is there a different opinion in the school of ahl albayt? Furthermore, he also told me that water can count as a cover, so it is permissible to be intimate in the shower without clothing. Once again, can anyone direct me to information about this? Either way, I will respect my husband's wishes as I love him and want to be a good wife, but I would just like to know. Thank you very much!
  9. (salam) I have been listening to some lectures and somehow i ended up watching this video: The verse that Hassanain talked about says that everything is created from water, to which the Atheist replied by saying that Thales has said this 2500 before. This caused some doubt in my heart, i know that this could be answered but i dont know where to find the answer. :donno:
  10. I found this Interesting information, thought I'd share with you all :) DRINK WATER ON EMPTY STOMACH It is popular in Japan today to drink water immediately after waking up every morning. Furthermore, scientific tests have proven its value. We publish below a description of use of water for our readers. For old and serious diseases as well as modern illnesses the water treatment had been found successful by a Japanese medical society as a 100% cure for the following diseases: Headache, body ache, heart system, arthritis, fast heart beat, epilepsy, excess fatness, bronchitis asthma, TB, meningitis, kidney and urine diseases, vomiting, gastritis, diarrhea, piles, diabetes, constipation, all eye diseases, womb, cancer and menstrual disorders, ear nose and throat diseases. METHOD OF TREATMENT 1. As you wake up in the morning before brushing teeth, drink 4 × 160ml glasses of water 2. Brush and clean the mouth but do not eat or drink anything for 45 minutes 3. After 45 minutes you may eat and drink as normal. 4. After 15 minutes of breakfast, lunch and dinner do not eat or drink anything for 2 hours – ie you can drink straight after a meal (within the first 15 minutes) but not for 2 hours after that. 5. Those who are old or sick and are unable to drink 4 glasses of water at the beginning may commence by taking little water and gradually increase it to 4 glasses per day. 6. The above method of treatment will cure diseases of the sick and others can enjoy a healthy life . The following list gives the number of days of treatment required to cure/control/ reduce main diseases: 1. High Blood Pressure – 30 days 2. Gastric – 10 days 3. Diabetes – 30 days 4. Constipation – 10 days 5. Cancer – 180 days 6. TB – 90 days 7. Arthritic patients should follow the above treatment for only 3 days in the 1st week, and from 2nd week onwards – daily. This treatment method has no side effects, however at the commencement of treatment you may have to urinate a few times. It is better if we continue this and make this procedure as a routine work in our life . Drink Water and Stay healthy and Active. This makes sense … the Chinese and Japanese drink hot tea with their meals ..not cold water. maybe it is time we adopt their drinking habit while eating!!! Nothing to lose, everything to gain… For those who like to drink cold water, this article is applicable to you. It is nice to have a cup of cold drink after a meal. However, the cold water will solidify the oily stuff that you have just consumed. It will slow down the digestion. Once this “sludge” reacts with the acid, it will break down and be absorbed by the intestine faster than the solid food. It will line the intestine. Very soon, this will turn into fats and lead to cancer. It is best to drink hot soup or warm water after a meal. A serious note about heart attacks: Women should know that not every heart attack symptom is going to be the left arm hurting. Be aware of intense pain in the jaw line. You may never have the first chest pain during the course of a heart attack. Nausea and intense sweating are also common symptoms. 60% of people who have a heart attack while they are asleep do not wake up. Pain in the jaw can wake you from a sound sleep. Let’s be careful and be aware. The more we know, the better chance we could survive… http://network.nature.com/groups/skepticism/forum/topics/640
  11. In the Name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful. See in this video how water changes because of simple words like Love, Hate, Peace etc. Imagine how words can affect people when we exist of water for a big part! by: Dr. Masaru Emoto http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tAvzsjcBtx8
  12. The memory of water By Dr Abbas and Dr Israh Tejani "And among His Signs is that …He sends down water from the sky, and therewith revives the earth after its death. Verily, in that are indeed signs for a people who understand." (Holy Qur’an 30:24) Water is a simple substance that is often taken for granted. Yet through its intricate properties, its existence allows life, as every living being in this world contains water. The human being is made up of 70% water, much like the world itself. A theory was put forward in 1988 by Jacques Beneviste that water is capable of having a memory, a theory that was subsequently rigorously tested by hundreds of experiments, majority of which confirmed this hypothesis. Recently in Japan, Dr. Emoto performed an experiment where he put some normal tap water into several test tubes. He then said different words, blowing into a different test tube each time he had said a different word. He subsequently used an electron microscope to see the shape of the crystalline structure of the water in each test tube, and compared it to the pictures he had taken before. The results were astonishing, for the shape of the water changed depending on what word was said – it “remembered” the word. Other studies have shown that the shape of water can have a great impact on the body – a good shape can help restore or keep the body in a state of health, whilst a bad shape can lead to many diseases, one of which is cancer. This idea is extremely relevant to some of the things we have been taught in Islam. As a child I was always taught the importance of saying “Bismillah” before eating or drinking anything. Dr. Emoto found that the word “God” transformed the water into a beautiful shape. As 70% of the human body is made up of water, and a lot of our foods contain water, saying “bismillah” before eating will help to change not only the crystalline shape of what we are about to consume into a nice, harmonious structure, but also help to refine the cells in our body, helping us become stronger against disease. As I was growing up, I used to see my mother blow into a glass of water after reciting duas, something that is highly emphasised in Islam. We are sometimes even taught to wash ayaats of the Holy Qur’an and to drink this water. It is natural to question this practice, as at first sight it does not seem to make logical sense. However, the impact that reciting dua has on the shape of the water molecule was tested by Dr. Emoto. The pictures below illustrate his findings. We see that after the dua was recited, the water changed into a beautiful, symmetrical shape. Through this, we can begin to understand why reciting du’as or the Holy Qur’an upon water can provide us with a cure. In fact, there has recently been much discussion and research regarding ‘digital biology.’ This is where waves are fired at a drug from a transmitter, and the scattering pattern of the waves is then collected at the receiver. The waves that are collected at the receiver are then fired at a glass of water, and the patient asked to drink it. A study conducted by Thomas found that treating a human breast tumour in mice with water that had been transformed in this way from the audio signal of Taxol® (usually used to treat breast cancer) showed just as much statistical significance as treating it with the drug itself (ie, it was just as beneficial as taking the drug itself) It is only natural that we then turn and think about the events that took place on the 10th of Muharram. Hazrat Abbas (as) took a handful of water from the Euphrates, looked into it and then threw it down. However, his influence upon the water was so great that the Euphrates now remains in constant circumambulation (tawaaf) around his grave. In addition to this, Dr. Emoto found that saying the word ‘peace’ over the water gave it an almost perfect shape. If we cast our minds back to the moment when Imam Hussain (as) was delivering his last will to Imam Sajjad (as), we realise the wisdom of his words when he said: “When my shi’a drink a cool glass of water, tell them to send me their salaam.” In trying to look for the perfect crystalline structure of water, Dr. Emoto stumbled upon the perfect combination, which is love plus gratitude. Just one of these is not enough. Love needs to be based in gratitude, and gratitude needs to be based in love. The Holy Qur’an tells us time and time again to continue giving thanks for what we have, and we can now begin to see the wisdom behind that command. Sometimes, when we cannot see the immediate results of our prayers, we think that we have failed. But one thing that Dr. Emoto's photographs show is that the mere thought of failure itself becomes represented in the physical objects that surround us. Upon reading this short article, perhaps we can begin to realise that even when immediate results are invisible to the unaided human eye, they are there. When we love our own bodies, they respond. When we express our love to God and other fellow human beings, they respond. And now we have seen before our eyes the proof that water is far from inanimate – it is actually alive and responsive to our every thought and emotion. Perhaps, having seen this, we can begin to really understand the tremendous power that we possess, and through choosing our thoughts and intentions, we can heal ourselves and the earth. If only we believe. “The cure is within you but you do not see. The illness is from you but you do not realise. Do you think you are but an insignificant mass, whilst within you lies a great universe?”-- Imam Ali (as)
  13. salaam to everyone, i have been searching for information about zamzam water, and i read that u can make dua while drinking it (or is it after u drink it?). i also read that u should drink "till the water reaches the ribs". i was wondering if you don't have enough zamzam water, is it allowed to mix it with normal tap water and still use it as zamzam water for dua or should i in this case drink what i have. i want to make dua but i don't have much to drink till it reaches my ribs. please inform me on this matter. jaza'akumillaah ghair.
  14. Slm every1, 1) When water from a shower passes through a najis part of your body , unto a tahir one lets say leg does it cause the latter to become najis as well , or not? 2) How would you advise someone who has problems in purifying the lavatory , as it is shared among others causing it to become najis.The lid often gets in contact with the najasat , and as such a najasat could only be made tahir either through qalil or kurr water , the water drops on the wooden floor which ultimately creates uncomfortable situations with the landlord. Even if one is careful the water , it does not reach all the najis part on the lid, and due to chemistry laws the water accumulates at one point leaving the other untouched or atleast not wet. If even the above method is accepted , the wiping through a tissue means that this tissue becomes Najis and has to disposed , which eventually leads to using atleast a full tissue roll. PLEASE ADVISE,,,,,,,,,,,
