Know your nutrients


What's on that plate of food you are going to eat? Your eyes may see carrot, chicken or rice. But what your body get is nutrients.

A nutrient is  a substance that provides energy or building material for your body by the command of Allah.

The three major nutrients that Allah has blessed us with are carbohydrates, proteins and fats. Vitamins and minerals are also nutrient. Your body needs all these to stay alive, but it needs some in larger amount than others.

Olive oil: A blessing


Allah says: “lit from a blessed tree, an olive, neither of the east ( i.e. neither it gets sun rays only in the morning) nor of the west (i.e.  Nor it gets sun rays only on the afternoon, but it is exposed to the sun all day long), whose oil will almost grow forth (of itself), though no fire touched it.” (24:35)

Tirmizi and ibn Majah narrated that Abu Hurairah (R.A) related from the prophet that he said: “ eat the olive and use it as an ointment, because it is produced by a blessed tree.”

Al Quran

Those who consume interest cannot stand ( on the day of resurrection) except as one stands who is being beaten by satan into insanity. That is because they say, “ trade is (just) like interest.” But Allah has permitted trade and forbidden interest. So whoever has recieved an admonition from his Lord and desists may have what is past, and his affair resist with Allah. But whoever returns to (dealing in interest or usury) those are the companions of the fire; they will abide eternally therein.  [Surah Al-Baqarah, 275]




Hazrat Abu Hurairah R.A narrated that Prophet P.B.U.H said: “Learn the Quran and recite it, because the example of one who learns the Quran, reads it and recites it in Tahajjud is like an open bag full of musk, the fragrance where of spreads over the entire place, and a person who has learnt the Quran but sleeps while the Quran is in his heart, is like a bag full of musk but with its mouth closed.”  [Tirmizi, Nasai]
