The Value of Human is depends on the Heart

in this post I will write about the value of a human is depends on his heart. As Prophet Muhammad. said: "Allah does not look at your body or at your shape. Allah only sees your heart and your deeds." (Narrated by Muslim)

In every human action there must be a motivation or intention that prompted him to do so. The things that motivate human actions are of two kinds, namely because of Allah and because of other than Allah. And often we do good because besides Allah, such as:
  • Giving something to someone else so they can become familiar with the person;
  • Being disciplined and working as well as possible, in order to receive special attention from the boss.
  • Giving gifts to officials in order to get the project, or to be appointed as his assistant.
All the actions that we do that is not because of Allah, later on the Day of Resurrection will be cast into hell. As the words of the Prophet, narrated by Imam Bayhaqi ; "On the Day of Resurrection someday, Allah will separate the mundane issues that are really directed to Him. While directed to other than Allah will be cast into hell". Only goodness we do simply because Allah SWT to be reckoned reward. Because of that we should :
  • If we give something to someone else, we should intend to seek blessings from Allah, because Allah commands us to give alms.
  • If we are disciplined and work as well as possible, we intend to seek Allah's blessing, because Islam commands its followers to appreciate the time and work in a professional manner.
What for do we give gifts to officials who are rich. if we really intend to seek Allah's blessing, it would be better if the gifts we give to people who really need it. For example, the poor, orphans, widows, and elderly people who are not taken care of properly.

The Benefits of The Herb Hindiba as Cancer Treatment of The Islamic Heritage

Cancer is a deadly disease that mankind dreaded. World Health Organization, WHO estimates that in 2010, cancer will be the number one disease cause the death in the world beats a heart attack. According to WHO predictions, by 2030, there will be 75 million people affected by cancer around the world.

Indeed, cancer is not a new disease. In the era of the triumph of the Islamic civilization, Muslim doctors have been able to diagnose and treat cancer. Not only that, Muslim doctors, like Ibn Sina and al-Baitar has found a cure for the deadly disease.

It is al-Baitar, a Muslim scientist in the 12th century AD who managed to find herbs for treating cancer called Hindiba. Hindiba concoction invented by al-Baitar contains anticancer substances that can cure tumors and interference-neoplastic disorders.

Head of the Department of History and Ethics, University of Istanbul, Turkey, Professor Nil Sari in his work; Hindiba: A Drug for Cancer Treatment in Muslim Heritage, has proven efficacy and validity of herbal Hindiba invented by al-Baitar. He and some other doctors have been scientifically tested and has even patented Hindiba invented by al-Baitar.

According to Professor Nil Sari, Hindiba been recognized by the medical doctors (pharmacologist), and herbalist in the Islamic world. Muslims have been using herbs to cure cancer long time ago before the doctors in the West found it, said Prof. Nil Sari.

After testing scientifically, Prof. Nil Sari concluded that, Hindiba has the power to cure various diseases. Hindiba can clear obstacles found in small channels in the body, especially in the digestive system. But the most spectacular domain is its power to cure tumors, he said.

To track the efficacy of the herb Hindiba, Professor Nil Sari was doing research on the treatment literature in the past. He tracked two masterpieces of Muslim scientists, namely Ibn Sina by Canon of Medicine and plant encyclopedia written by al-Baitar.

When we look at old text more closely, we see the truth that we know very little about herbs (herbs) in the past, he said. In the text of the glory of Islam's heritage explained that Hindiba and many other herbs are divided into two main groups, the processed herbs and herbs are not processed.

According to ancient medical texts, the efficacy of cancer treatment using Hindiba treatment based on theoretical considerations, the effects of medical drugs operate in accordance with the nature of the constituents. According to Prof. Nil, constituents generated from the decomposition will have the effect so-called energy. The potential quality of hot and cold in the nature of the drug will come out as a result of decomposition of the body.

The active component of natural heat will immediately react and spread through the body tissues effectively. Heat Constituents react before the cold constituent and clear obstacles in the line of small channels on the body and accelerate the deployment of the cold constituents. Then come the cold element, and begin to function.

In the Arabic-language medical treatise, a relic of the golden age of Islam, it is mentioned that all types of inflammation such as warts or bumps have caused interference on the channel. While cancer is described as a hard mass. Identified as a hard swelling, cancer develops from small to large and then coupled with the pain.

Quoting Ibn Sina records in the Canon of Medicine, Professor Nil Sari revealed that the tumor or cancer, when on leave will be increased in size. So that the cancer will spread and damage. Its roots can infiltrate between the elements of the body's tissues. Professor Nil Sari find a similar picture in a manuscript about cancer treatment in the Ottoman era.

According to Ibn Sina, the tumor is classified into two, namely hot and cold tumors. Tumor-colored and feels warm to the touch is usually called heat tumors, while tumors that are colorless and does not feel warm called as cold tumors. Ibn Sina called cancer as a form of tumor that sits between cold tumor.

Efficacy of Hindiba investigated by Prof. Nil Sari by presenting in-depth data about theoretical background in vivo and in vitro experiments with herbal extracts from Turkey. He started from the Ottoman philosophy, rooted in Islamic medicine. In this work, it was mentioned that the drug Cichorium intybus L and Crocus sativus L. identified as an alternative crop identical to each other which is the active component for the treatment of cancer.

Professor Nil Sari and his colleague Dr. Hanzade Dogan mixing C intybus L and saffron (saffron) from Safranbolu, as described by the old medical texts. Even more interesting are the results of our laboratory studies showing that extracts from C. intybus L were found to be the most active in colon cancer, said Professor Nil Sari.

According to him, Hindiba proved to be very effective in treating cancer. Unfortunately, he said, in ancient times, Hindiba more recommended as a drug for the treatment of tumors. It was revealed in the book of Ibn al-Baitar. According to al-Baitar, if the herb Hindiba heated, and foam removed and filtered and drink will be useful to cure the tumor.

medical experts in the era of the Ottoman Empire, Mehmed Mumin, reveal that Hindiba can treat tumors in internal organs. However, more often recommended for the treatment of tumors in the throat. If cinnamon mixed with Hindiba juice (specially treated well) can be used to gargle the mouth and is also useful for the treatment of tumor, pain and laryngitis

The Story of Prophet Adam Alayhis Salaam (Part II)

The Devil rebelled.
The Devil rebelled and was reluctant to obey God's command, unlike other angels, who immediately prostrate before Adam as an homage to the creatures of God who will be given the mandate to rule the earth and everything that lives and grows on it and buried in it. The Devil feels himself more noble than Adam, more mainstream and more glorious than Adam, because The Devil was created from elements of fire, while Adam was created from soil and mud. Pride in its origins to make the devil to feel proud and reluctant to bow to respect Adam as the other angels, even though God commanded it.

The Lord said to The Devil: "What is stopping you to bow down to respect something that I created with my hands?"

He said: "I am the more noble and superior to him. You created me from fire and you created him from the mud."

Because of pride, arrogance and defiance are commanded to perform prostrations, then God punishes The Devil by him out of heaven and expelled him from the ranks of angels, accompanied by curses and damnation that will be attached to him until the day of resurrection.In addition, he declared the inhabitants of hell.

The devil boasted well received God 's punishment and he just ask that given the opportunity for eternal life until the Day of Judgment. God granted his request, but the devil is not grateful and thankful for the provision of guarantees that, even otherwise he threatened to Adam's misleading, as for her expulsion from heaven and the issuance of the rows of angels, and will overtake the children of the offspring from every angle to persuade them to leave the straight and invites them to perform immoral and illegal things that other, teasing them to forget the commandments of the religion and their influence so as not to be grateful and pious charity.

Then God said to The Devil, that cursed: "Go thou with followers who are all followers will be the contents of Hell and the fuel of hell. You will not be able to deceive my servants who have believed in me with all her heart and has a steady Aqeedah that will not be deterred by your line even if you using all cleverness to demagoguery and malign."

The Story of Prophet Adam Alayhis Salaam (Part I)

After Allah created the earth, mountains, oceans, vegetation, creating the heavens, sun, moon and stars that shine, then later Allah willed to create the kind of other creatures that will inhabit and fill the earth, keep enjoying grow-vegetation, managing wealth is hidden in them and breed, inherited the legacy of all time who have been destined for him. He is Adam Alayhis Salaam.

The Fears of Angels.
When Allah tells the angels about His will to create other creatures, the Angels are concerned, they are afraid that the will of God is caused by their negligence in worship and perform tasks that are commanded by God or because of their transgressions without them knowing it. Then they said to God: "Wilt Thou place therein one Who Will the make mischief therein and shed blood?-Whilst We Do Celebrate Thy praises and glorify Thy holy (name)?" (See the Qur'an Surah Al-Baqarah, verse 30).

Then Allah said to allay fears of the angels : "I know what ye know not" (See qur'an surah al-Baqarah, verse 30)

Then Allah created Adam from a lump of dry clay and shaped black mud. After that, the shape is refined and then God breathed His spirit into it and Adam stood up straight and became a perfect human being

Between Love and Lust

Reviewing the story of two young people making love is always interesting to talk about. It also seems to underlie much news either in printed or electronic media when it is discovered the videos 'unite' the two souls are engrossed in love. Yes, currently, there are many young people are drawn into the flow of free association. Courtship seemed to be a new culture for them to pour their love for their lover.

Undeniably, there are many deep concern behind the phenomenon. With "the name of love", many young people who then forget the limits outlined by religion. Through the event, which is called courtship, there is an intensive interaction of mutual feelings of love, often meet, and so on which led to the occurrence of various physical contact. Not infrequently they get plunged into the abyss of adultery, because they can not control themselves. Finally, the relationship which is special to them initially, be a cause of grave sin and the destruction of the future for the culprit. Once again, they do it with "the name of love" before. The words of love that sanctity should be maintained, to be stained. Then, is it true love? Or is it just a lust camouflaged?

If there is a girl who said to her lover, "I gave all mine to you as evidence of my love for you..." He considers it as a sacrifice for love. But is that the sacrifice for love? Or did it for lust? There was a young man asked his girlfriend, "If you really love me, what is the evidence?" Or in other occasions, "As a proof of love, will you kiss, hug... (and beyond)." Or in other cases, if the requester is the girl, and when the boy refused and then the boy will be sorted of as cowardice. Should it be the prove of love?

Love and lust are two things that are inherent in man. Both are like two sides of a sword that is very contradictory, but always present together. Appetite comes with a full beauty, but can not be denied that in the end the faith always be cut off with a single blow.

The relationship between love, lust, and sex is interesting. If the three do not have a close relationship, unlikely there will be the term "making love" the connotation is more or less describes the linkages. Then from these linkages arises many questions in our minds: Is the love begins with lust, or lust caused by love? Whether sex is a consequence of lust, or the consequences of love? Does sex need love? Is there love without lust and sex?

Love is grace, it comes suddenly. In the drama of life often happens what is often termed ' one hand clapping ', we really love someone but he or she does not love us, or may otherwise there are people who so love us, but we do not have a sense of it. In this case, love is a mystery, it is a sacred nature the gift given by God to humanity that must be maintained and directed. Love will be a holy and glorious forever when he is possessed by a "true lovers". Much love story that became legend. The beautiful Tajmahal in the land of India created by love. Rabiah Al Adawiyah became the legendary Sufi woman because her love to the Creator.

Islam is a religion of love, we are taught to live with mutual love, and harmony side by side. Even a Muslim's or Muslima's faith is not perfect if he or she could not love his brothers/sisters as he/she loves him/herself. Only, that love should not exceed our love to the love owner (Allah), and there are the procedures of it. In addition, we have to recognize where the love and where lust. Once we are wrapped up in a vortex of lust, it will be difficult for us to get out of there.

So, do not say 'Love' if we can not give the meaning to it with the real meaning. Do not equate love with lust simply because we are lack of self-control. Do not blame love as a means of lust impingement. And more importantly, promiscuity will not happen if our young people can interpret in love with the truth and uphold the teachings of religion with istiqomah (consistently) until the time arrives, the marriage gates will be open.
