10 HEALTH BENEFITS OF APPLES
We're told that an apple a day keeps the doctor away, but what exactly are the health benefits of apples? Here are ten reasons to heed the advice of that old proverb.
French researchers found that a flavanoid called phloridzin that is found only in apples may protect post-menopausal women from osteoporosis and may also increase bone density. Boron, another ingredient in apples, also strengthens bones.
One recent study shows that children with asthma who drank apple juice on a daily basis suffered from less wheezing than children who drank apple juice only once per month. Another study showed that children born to women who eat a lot of apples during pregnancy have lower rates of asthma than children whose mothers ate few apples.
A study on mice at Cornell University found that the quercetin in apples may protect brain cells from the kind of free radical damage that may lead to Alzheimer's disease.
The pectin in apples lowers LDL ("bad") cholesterol. People who eat two apples per day may lower their cholesterol by as much as 16 percent.
Lung Cancer Prevention
According to a study of 10,000 people, those who ate the most apples had a 50 percent lower risk of developing lung cancer. Researchers believe this is due to the high levels of the flavonoids quercetin and naringin in apples.
Breast Cancer Prevention
A Cornell University study found that rats who ate one apple per day reduced their risk of breast cancer by 17 percent. Rats fed three apples per day reduced their risk by 39 percent and those fed six apples per day reduced their risk by 44 percent.
Colon Cancer Prevention One study found that rats fed an extract from apple skins had a 43 percent lower risk of colon cancer. Other research shows that the pectin in apples reduces the risk of colon cancer and helps maintain a healthy digestive tract.
Liver Cancer Prevention
Research found that rats fed an extract from apple skins had a 57 percent lower risk of liver cancer.
The pectin in apples supplies galacturonic acid to the body which lowers the body's need for insulin and may help in the management of diabetes.
A Brazilian study found that women who ate three apples or pears per day lost more weight while dieting than women who did not eat fruit while dieting.
SO,LET'S START A HEALTHY LIFE BY EATING AN APPLE!

Not many of us realize the subtle and hidden secrets that lie behind our movements in Salah (prayer). How many people stand in prayer but their mind does not stand focused? How many people bow down but their inner soul refuses to bow? How many people prostrate but their heart fails to do so? And how many people pray but a prayer has not been written for them?
Movements in prayer have a certain meaning to our body. By saying our prayer we can exercise our muscles and bones especially the backbone. Every movement we make in saying the prayer contribute something such as when we stand still our backbone can be trained to be straight and this may avoid it from bending forward and creating a hump on our back.
When we bend down for ruku' our hand muscle being train to withstand the weight of or body and our backbone also will be in a straight condition. When our backbone is straight, automatically our ribs will be open wide and it will make us breath smoothly because there is no blockade on our lungs.
When we breathe freely and fully the amount of oxygen that enters our body will be more. With the huge amount of oxygen will make the blood carry a lot of oxygen throughout our body and to the brain. Brain with a full oxygenated blood will make a better performance in helping us to think brilliantly.
The beautiful secrets in prayer that we may not aware of. Keeping our prayer perfect for five times a day may avoid us to spend more time in normal exercises.

CUBA ANDA BAYANGKAN..
PADA SUATU SAAT,NIKMAT MEMILIKI SEBUAH LIDAH DITARIK BALIK.LIDAH ANDA TERPAKSA DIBUANG KERANA KANSER ATAU TERDAPAT KETUMBUHAN YANG MUNGKIN AKAN MEMBAWA MAUT KEPADA DIRI ANDA SENDIRI.
DAPATKAH ANDA MERASAI NIKMAT MAKAN NASI KANDAR KARI KEPALA IKAN?DAPATKAH ANDA MERASAI BETAPA ‘KAW’NYA KOPI PANAS?DAN..DAPATKAH ANDA MENYEBUT ‘SUBHANALLAH’, ‘ALLAHUAKBAR’,DAN MENGUCAP 2 KALIMAH SHAHADAH?APATAH LAGI KALAU DISURUH MEMBACA AL-QURAN TANPA LIDAH?
MUNGKIN RAMAI YANG KATA, ‘GILA KE,MANA ADA ORANG TIADA LIDAH!’
LIDAH ADALAH ASET YANG PALING PENTING.DENGAN LIDAH,KITA MUNGKIN AKAN MENJADI SALAH SEORANG PENGHUNI SYURGA.DENGANNYA JUGA,KITA MUNGKIN MENEMPAH TIKET KE NERAKA!
“GHIBAH (MENGUMPAT) ITU ADALAH APABILA KAMU MENYEBUT PERIHAL SAUDARAMU DENGAN SESUATU YANG DIBENCINYA.”
(RIWAYAT AHMAD,MUSLIM DAN ABU DAUD)
Ada yang berkata,
“aku bukannya hendak mengata,tapi nak bagitahu hal sebenarnya,”
Apa jua namanya,jika menyebut sesuatu yang negatif tanpa kebenaran syarak,ia tetap dilarang.Ketika Israk dan Mikraj,Nabi Muhammad SAW diberitahu bahawa orang yang mencakar muka sendiri di akhirat kelak ialah orang yang suka mengumpat.
Jadi,sama-samalah kita menghindari perbuatan keji tersebut,sementara masih lagi diberi kesempatan untuk meminjam lidah yang tiada gantinya!
SEBAIK-BAIKNYA,GUNAKANLAH LIDAH UNTUK:
- MENGUCAPKAN SALAM
- MEMBACA AL-QURAN
- MENUTURKAN KATA-KATA YANG BAIK
- MERASAI MAKANAN YANG HALAL LAGI BERKAT
JIKA KITA TIADA APA YANG INGIN DIUCAPKAN,MAKA ELOKLAH UNTUK BERDIAM.SELAMAT BERAMAL!
