Living with a disability can be a problem for some people. Other people fight through and bounce back by getting medical treatment, doing what they can, and staying positive.

There is a website called Neurology Now that has articles about different neurological disabilities that people are dealing with. 

I do read some of the ones that I am interested in, but there is one column that I always read because it is written by someone who has a disability. It is the column called Speak Up. It always makes me think how positive the people are. How I should be positive, no matter what.

http://journals.lww.com/neurologynow/Pages/collections.aspx?Collection=Topical

These are some of the topics that have multiple articles: ADHD, Alternative & Complementary Medicine, Alzheimer's & Dementia, Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, Autism & Neurodevelopmental Disorders, Brain Tumor, Cerebral Palsy, Clinical Trial Watch, Depression, Dystonia, Epilepsy, For the Caregiver, Living Well, Migraine, Multiple Sclerosis, Myasthenia Gravis, Neurobics, Neuropathy, New Frontiers, Pain, Parkinson's & Movement Disorders, Restless Legs Syndrome, Shingles, Sleep Disorders, Speak Up, Stroke & Vascular Neurology, Tourette's Syndrome, Traumatic Brain Injury & Concussion and others.

^ It's good to know that it is useful for you. I wanted to share with everyone, because it is written for patients, caregivers and people who need the information. Neurology Now interviews famous people about their disability, so it takes a look at different medical issues and creates awareness. The journal or magazine is interesting and it is probably available to patients in every neurologist waiting room in the US. I have been reading the print edition for seven years and go to read at the website for the past five years. The reason I like the Speak Up column is because it is written by people with disability, not doctors or researchers, and it gives insight into how they deal with life's problems. It's really inspiring.

Everyone has some type of weakness. Please don't dwell on your deficit or disability and what you are not able to do. Allah knows your situation. Focus on your strengths and do what you can do. Think positive and be positive. Allah is with you always.

Martin Pistorius was ill for years and could not move his body. He could not speak, but he made the best out of his life, little by little. I have not read it, but he wrote a book called Ghost Boy: The Miraculous Escape of a Misdiagnosed Boy Trapped Inside His Own Body. There is a 12 minute audio about his life here:

@notme Look at this ^

@Hameedeh this is all the more reason to establish masjids that are mainly composed of the convert/revert community until the mainstream mosques start accommodating to the handicapped. After all, why should we suffer from ignorant people and be turned away from Allah's سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى house for something beyond our control?

      Salaam, I've recently starting wearing hijab for about a year now and suddenly I've been feeling like taking it off. I don't feel like myself in it. I feel that I was much more religious before the hijab.  I feel like I'm losing myself in the hijab. I wear makeup everyday because I don't like how I look without it. Also, I know I am not wearing the proper hijab. Does this all negate the purpose of wearing the hijab? Is there any purpose of the hijab I am already wearing? Is it a bigger sin to take off the hijab than not wearing one at all? And if I decide to wear it again in the future, will God accept it? Please help.

    • Yeah, I know a set of parents that we’re doing the same thing for their daughter. Kept rejecting guys because they didn’t feel he was up to par. The guys info wouldn’t even make it to get to accept/reject. Their daughter is now 40 and unmarried. They rejected so many guys that people just stopped approaching her. 
    • It absolutely leads to sin unless you are a fantastic mu'min. And yes, although they might not turn to haram in terms of having relationships with girls, but you can't tell me you didn't see these guys talk about some girls in lustful ways or look at them in such a way. Furthermore, and something we seem to forget, is that in these gender mixed schools there is gender mixing in everything. In sport, as an example. Boys turn to watching filthy films whether they are in segregated or gender mixed schools.
    • No brother. What I do is this: I pray 17 rakaat Qadha prays everyday plus 11 rakaats Salaat-ul-layl. Salaat-ul-layl is something that does NOT have any replacement. It gives you good feeling. It really gives human being feeling of being in heaven. If you do Salaat-ul-layl, keep going. It guarantees both Dunya and Akherah.
