Modern Stress and its Cure from the Quran

By Shahid Athar | MissionIslam | 31 Jan 2012

Stress is the most common aliment of modern age. It has been implicated in the causation of peptic ulcer disease, coronary heart disease, depression, auto immune disease, hypertension, diabetes and even cancer.

In milder form it manifests in form of unrest, violence at work, school and home. Common medical problems like tension headache, insomnia, and obesity are also attributed to unusual stress. None of us are free from stress but some deal with it better than others.

 

Success through the principles of the Prophet

The Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) was the most successful man in the entire human history. Being the last Prophet of Islam, he not only set a good example for the whole mankind but also showed to them how to achieve success in this world. Maulana Wahiduddin Khan, a prominent Islamic scholar, has identified 10 successful principles taught by the Prophet.

 

Reading Quran with Tajweed

Islamic population is wide-spread in the world. Most of the Arab countries are Muslim countries. There is a large Muslim population living in the non-Arab countries that reads, learn or speak Arabic for religious purposes. Reading the Arabic in proper manner is called tajweed.

 

Evolution? Creation? The Qur'an Teaches Both!

For the Muslim there is no need for separation between religion and science. It is understood from the Quran, revealed over 1,400 years ago, that there is both; "Creation" and "Evolution." And in both instances, it is only Allah who is "Able to do all things." In fact, it was the Muslim scientists, more than 1,000 years ago, who set the stage for the advancement of learning, technology and disciplines in science that we know today.

 

Wise sayings and general rules taken from the Quran, Sunnah, and words of Muslim wise men.

“Give to the one who denied you.”

"Love the poor and mix with them."

“Stay with her (the mother), for Paradise is under her feet.”

"If you want to count the faults of anyone else, count your own faults instead."

“Pay the hired worker his wages before his sweat dries.”

“The best charity is that given by one who has little.”

“The upper hand (the one that gives) is better than the lower hand (the one that takes).”

 

The Qur'an

The Qur'an by Christine Huda Dodge

The holy text of Islam is called the Qur'an (also spelled Koran). The word Qur'an comes from the Arabic word iqra (to read), and is a noun that literally means “the Reading.” Revealed verse by verse to Muhammad over a period of twenty-three years, the Qur'an is the center of Muslim life. The Qur'an was revealed in the Arabic language and is preserved in its original form, although translations of the meaning have been done into other languages. Through stories and parables, direct instructions and warnings, the Qur'an gives a universal message of belief in One God and in the guidance He has sent through time.

 

The Qur’an and Hadith as source and inspiration of Islamic philosophy

By Seyyed Hossein Nasr

    Viewed from the point of view of the Western intellectual tradition, Islamic philosophy appears as simply Graeco-Alexandrian philosophy in Arabic dress, a philosophy whose sole role was to transmit certain important elements of the heritage of antiquity to the medieval West.
