---- The Window from which we look
A young couple moves into a new neighborhood.
The next morning while they are eating breakfast,
The young woman sees her neighbor hanging the
"That laundry is not very clean", she said.
"She doesn't know how to wash correctly.
Perhaps she needs better laundry soap."
Her husband looked on, but remained silent.
Every time her neighbor would hang her wash to dry,
The young woman would make the same comments.
About one month later, the woman was surprised to see a
Nice clean wash on the line and said to her husband:
"Look, she has learned how to wash correctly.
I wonder who taught her this."
The husband said, "I got up early this morning and
Cleaned our windows."
And so it is with life. What we see when watching others
Depends on the purity of the window through which we look!

One day a British man asked from a Muslim scholar:
English man asked: ”why Muslim women are not allowed in Islam to shake a hand with men?”
The scholar said: “could you take the hands of Queen Elizabeth in your hands?”
English man said:” Of course not, only certain people are allowed to shake hands with the Queen”
The scholar answered: Our Ladies are Queen and the Queen won’t shake hands with strange men

Little did you know ........ after reading THIS, you'll NEVER look at petai in the same way again!
Petai contains three natural sugars -sucrose, fructose and glucose. Combined with fiber, petai gives an instant, sustained and substantial boost of energy. Research has proved that just two servings of petai provide enough energy for a strenuous 90-minute workout.. No wonder petai is the number one fruit with the world's leading athletes. But energy isn't the only way petai can help us keep fit. It can also help overcome or prevent a substantial number of illnesses and conditions, making it a must to add to our daily diet.
According to a recent survey undertaken by MIND among people suffering from depression, many felt much better after eating petai. This is because petai contain tryptophan, a type of protein that the body converts into serotonin, known to make you relax, improve your mood and generally make you feel happier.
PMS (premenstrual syndrome):
Forget the pills - eat petai. The vitamin B6 it contains regulates blood glucose levels, which can affect your mood.
High in iron, petai can stimulate the production of haemoglobin in the blood and so helps in cases of anaemia.
This unique tropical fruit is extremely high in potassium yet low in salt, making it perfect to beat blood pressure. So much so, the US Food and Drug Administration has just allowed the petai industry to make official claims for the fruit's ability to reduce the risk of blood pressure and stroke.
Brain Power :
200 students at a Twickenham (Middlesex) school were helped through their exams this year by eating petai at breakfast, break, and lunch in a bid to boost their brain power. Research has shown that the potassium-packed fruit can assist learning by making pupils more alert.
Understand that bananas contain lot of potassium too so eat more banana... Just look at those monkeys, they are really active, alert, smart and cunning too!!
High in fiber, including petai in the diet can help restore normal bowel action, helping to overcome the problem without resorting to laxatives.
One of the quickest ways of curing a hangover is to make a petai milkshake, sweetened with honey. The petai calms the stomach and, with the help of the honey, builds up depleted blood sugar levels, while the milk soothes and re-hydrates your system.
Petai has a natural antacid effect in the body, so if you suffer from heartburn, try eating petai for soothing relief.
Morning Sickness :
Snacking on petai between meals helps to keep blood sugar levels up and avoid morning sickness.
Mosquito bites :
Before reaching for the insect bite cream, try rubbing the affected area with the inside of the petai skin. Many people find it amazingly successful at reducing swelling and irritation..
Petai is high in B vitamins that help calm the nervous system.
Studies at the Institute of Psychology in Austria found pressure at work leads to gorging on comfort food like chocolate and crisps. Looking at 5,000 hospital patients, researchers found the most obese were more likely to be in high-pressure jobs. The report concluded that, to avoid panic-induced food cravings, we need to control our blood sugar levels by snacking on high carbohydrate foods every two hours to keep levels steady.
Petai is used as the dietary food against intestinal disorders because of its soft texture and smoothness. It is the only raw fruit that can be eaten without distress in over-chronicler cases. It also neutralizes over-acidity and reduces irritation by coating the lining of the stomach.
Temperature control :
Many other cultures see petai as a "cooling" fruit that can lower both the physical and emotional temperature of expectant mothers. In Holland , for example, pregnant women eat petai to ensure their baby is born with a cool temperature.
Seasonal Affecti ve Disorder (SAD):
Petai can help SAD sufferers because they contain the natural mood enhancer, tryptophan.
Petai can also help people trying to give up smoking.. The B6, B12 they contain, as well as the potassium and magnesium found in them, help the body recover from the effects of nicotine withdrawal.
< B R>Stress:
Potassium is a vital mineral, which helps normalize the heartbeat, sends oxygen to the brain and regulates your body's water balance. When we are stressed, our metabolic rate rises, thereby reducing our potassium levels. These can be rebalanced with the help of a high-potassium petai snack.
According to research in "The New England Journal of Medicine" eating petai as part of a regular diet can cut the risk of death by strokes by as much as 40%".
Those keen on natural alternatives swear that if you want to kill off a wart, take a piece of petai and place it on the wart.. Carefully hold the petai in place with a plaster or surgical tape!
So, as you can see, petai really is a natural remedy for many ills. When you compare it to an apple, it has four times the protein, twice the carbohydrates, three times the phosphorus, five times the vitamin A and iron, and twice the other vitamins and minerals... It is also rich in potassium and is one of the best value foods around. So maybe its time to change that well-known phrase so that we say, "A Petai a day keeps the doctor away".

Malam Lailatul-Qadar sunat dicari, kerana malam ini merupakan suatu malam yang diberkati serta mempunyai kelebihan dan diperkenankan doa oleh Allah S.W.T. Malam Lailatul-Qadar adalah sebaik-baik malam mengatasi semua malam termasuk malam Jumaat. Allah S.W.T. berfirman dalam Surah Al-Qadr 97: Ayat 3.
" Malam Lailatul - Qadar lebih baik daripada seribu malam "
Ertinya menghidupkan malam Lailatul-Qadardengan mengerjakan ibadah adalah lebih baik daripada beribadah pada seribu bulan yang tidak ada Lailatul-Qadar seperti sabda Nabi s.a.w.:
" Sesiapa menghidupkan malam Lailatul-Qadar kerana beriman serta
mencari pahala yang dijanjikan akan mendapat pengampunan daripada
dosa-dosa yang telah lalu "
Diriwayatkan daripada Saiyidatina Aisyah r.a bahawa Rasulullah s.a.w. apabila tiba 10 hari terakhir bulan ramadhan, Baginda menghidupkan malam-malamnya dengan membangunkan isi rumah dan menjauhi daripada isteri-isterinya. Imam Ahmad dan Muslim meriwayatkan:
" Rasulullah s.a.w. berusaha sedaya upaya dalam malam-malam sepuluh
akhir Ramadhan melebihi usahanya daripada malam-malam lain. "
Malam Lailatul-Qadar berlaku pada 10 akhir daripada malam ganjil bulan Ramadhan. Rasulullah s.a.w. bersabda:
" Carilah malam Lailatul-Qadar pada sepuluh akhir bulan Ramadhan
dalam malam ganjil. "
Pendapat yang terkuat mengikut para ulama' bahawa malam Lailatul Qadar terkena pada malam 27 Ramadhan. Menurut Abu Ka'ab katanya, "Demi Allah sesungguhnya ibn Mas'ud telah meyakinkan bahawa malam Lailatul-Qadar jatuh dalam bulan Ramadhan manakala Lailatul-Qadar pula terjatuh pada malam 27, akan tetapi dia enggan memberitahu kepada kami (malam yang tepat) kerana bimbangkan kamu tidak lagi berusaha mencarinya." Daripada Riwayat Mu'awiyah:
" Bahawa Nabi Muhammad s.a.w telah bersabda dalam malam lailatul-qadar
iaitu malam ke-27. "
Riwayat ini disokong oleh pendapat Ibn Abbas yang mengatakan bahawa surah Al-Qadr mempunyai 30 perkataan. Perkataan yang ke-27 bagi surah itu terjatuh kepada dhamir(hia) yang kembalinya kepada Lailatul-Qadar.
Imam Ahmad telah meriwayatkan sebuah Hadith daripada Ibn Umar r.a yang berbunyi:
" Sesiapa yang mencari Lailatul-Qadar , dia hendaklah mencarinya pada malam
yang ke-27, carilah kamu malam Lailatul-Qadar pada malam yang ke-27. "
Aisyah r.a. bertanya kepada Rasulullah, katanya, "Ya Rasulullah s.a.w. andainya aku mendapati
malam Lailatul-Qadar, apakah doa yang patut aku bacakan? Rasulullah s.a.w. berdoa dengan doa:
" Ya Allah! Sesungguhnya Engkau Maha Pengampun, oleh itu berilah
keampunan-Mu untukku. "
