1400 years ago, the Prophet SAW ventured on one of the greatest journeys any man has ever ventured. That journey was Al-Israa and Al-Miraj. That was the journey in which the Prophet SAW was given the commandment of prayer. In the book Reclaim Your Heart, the author has a whole section that speaks solely about prayer. One will only find spirituality when they fulfill the commandment of prayer. Allah SWT has made Salah one of the five prayers of Islam. Without one of these pillars, one’s Islam is incomplete. Allah SWT said (Verily I have not created the humans and spirits except to pray) (51:56). Quran is of utmost importance. The Prophet Saw said that what separates a Muslim from a non-Muslim is prayer. Therefore, we must distinguish ourselves from the nonbelievers by praying sincerely. The Prophet SAW said that that the first thing any slave will be asked about on The Day of Judgment will be his/her prayer. Finally, he said that if a slave’s Salah is well then all his other deeds will be well. This just shows how important prayer is and how much we should be willing to sacrifice in order to complete it. Allah SWT says in his holy book: (Seek refuge in patience and prayer) (2:153). If you are beset with fear and anxiety: stand up and pray right now; your soul will find comfort and solace. The prayer- as long as you perform it sincerely with a wakeful heart- is guaranteed to have this effect on you. When the Prophet SAW was afflicted with hardship, he would say “O Bilal! Give us comfort and call for the prayer.” The prayer was his joy and pleasure; it was the delight of his eye. And it should always be the delight to yours. The Prayer of Fear (which is performed in the midst of battle) was prescribed in situations when limbs are severed, skulls fly, and souls depart their bodies. This is a time when strength and resolution can only be derived from sincere prayer. This generation which is consumed by psychological sicknesses, must return to the mosque, going there to perform such sincere prayer and to seek Allah’s pleasure. If we do not do this, tears will burn our eyes and grief will destroy our nerves. Yasmin Mogahed in her book says,” There are many people who say they don’t have time to pray at work or at school, or while they are out.” These are the people that want to find an excuse so they cannot pray. They think it will waste their time or ruin the relationships they have with friends. The Prophet SAW one said that the Earth was created for him as a mosque. The Prophet SAW’s companions used to perform prayers in the midst of battle. If they were able to do it in the direst of situations, why can’t we do it in our schools and workplaces when we are safe and when there is almost always a…

The Heart muscle
This article is about the heart and how it works in the body. Every heart is made up of three layers. An inner lining called the endocardium, a middle layer of muscle called the myocardium, an outer fluid-filled sac known as the pericardium. The heart is divided into four chambers each of the chambers has valves. The valves have different names. The tricuspid valve is at the exit of the right atrium, mitral valve is for the left atrium pulmonary valve is at the exit of the right…

of the heart. Diastolic pressure is when the heart, after contraction, returns to a resting state between beats. When blood pressure is taken, two numbers are given as a result. The top number is the systolic reading and the bottom is the diastolic reading. An example of a of a blood pressure reading would be 116/78, which would be a normal heart rate for an adult. The normality range of blood pressure is roughly around 120/80 (Mayo Clinic, 2010.)
Pulse pressure is the force that your heart generates…

Eugene Field ~ Close to the Heart
“Poetry is, above all, an approach to the truth of feeling. A fine poem will seize your imagination intellectually-- that is, when you reach it, you will reach it intellectually too-- but the way is through emotion, through what we call feeling.”--Muriel Rukeyser. No poet quite epitomizes this truth as exactly as Eugene Field. His poems call to the heart of a reader as sincerely as they came from his heart when he wrote them. His poems are all about…

What is heart failure?
Heart failure (HF) can be caused by any heart condition where the heart’s pumping ability becomes impaired, either because of an abnormality in cardiac structure or function. This results in inadequate perfusion- the inability of the heart to supply adequate oxygenated blood flow to fulfil the body’s needs (the workload).
HF can be acute or chronic. Acute HF develops rapidly (over hours or days). Chronic HF develops over month or years and is a long-term condition…
