Hadis Qudsi – 25 ~ Balasan merencana kebajikan dan kejahatan

Berkata Abu Darda r.a. bahawasanya Nabi SAW telah bersabda: Allah Taala telah berfirman:

“Apabila hambaKu merencanakan sesuatu kejahatan, maka janganlah kamu (para malaikat) mencatitkannya ke atas hamba itu, sehingga dia mengerjakannya, barulah kamu mencatitkannnya satu kejahatan. Tetapi jika dia merencanakan sesuatu kebajikan, tetapi tidak dikerjakannya, maka catitkanlah baginya satu kebajikan. Jika dikerjakannya kebajikan itu, maka catitkanlah baginya sepuluh kebajikan.” (Riwayat Bukhari dan Muslim)

Ujian jika hendakkan syurga

“Sewaktu hatiku cenderung hendak mencapai syurga satu ketika yang lampau, Allah telah menjatuhkan sakit kepadaku sebagai hukuman.” ~ Rabi’atul Adawiyyah Al-Basriyyah.

Susahnya nak istiqamah ikut sunnah harian Nabi Muhammad SAW

Untuk muhasabah diri petang-petang Ahad ni….

Di antara sunnah dan amalan harian Nabi SAW yang sepatutnya kita ikuti supaya Nabi SAW mengaku kita sebagai umatnya, adalah:

1. Solat sunat tahajjud sepertiga akhir malam setiap malam kerana kemuliaan seorang mukmin terletak pada tahajjudnya.

2. Solat sunat witir setiap malam sebelum fajar subuh kerana Allah itu ganjil dan menyukai yang ganjil.

3. Membaca Al-Qur’an sebelum terbit matahari. Alangkah baiknya sebelum mata melihat dunia, sebaiknya mata membaca Al-Qur’an terlebih dahulu dengan penuh pemahaman.

4. Jangan tinggalkan masjid terutama di waktu subuh. Sebelum melangkah ke mana pun langkahkan kaki ke masjid, kerana masjid merupakan pusat keberkahan, bukan kerana panggilan muadzin tetapi panggilan Allah yang mencari orang beriman untuk memakmurkan masjid Allah. Ini yang paling berat bagi kebanyakan kita orang awam ni.

5. Jaga solat sunat Dhuha kerana kunci rezeki terletak pada solat Dhuha. Perlu diingat, jangan sekali-kali berniat solat dhuha kerana hanya untuk memudahkan rezeki tetapi berniatlah kerana Allah, insya Allah rezeki akan datang tanpa diminta.

6. Solat di awal waktu kerana inilah amalan Nabi SAW.

7. Jaga sedekah setiap hari. Allah menyukai orang yang suka bersedekah, dan malaikat Allah selalu mendoakan kepada orang yang bersedekah setiap hari. Sedekah banyak bentuk, tidak semestinya wang ringgit sahaja, kata-kata yang baik pun adalah sedekah, membantu orang dalam kesusahan pun adalah sedekah, dan macam-macam lagi.

8. Jaga wudhu terus menerus kerana Allah menyayangi hamba yang berwudhu. Kata khalifah Ali bin Abu Thalib, “Orang yang selalu berwudhu senantiasa ia akan merasa selalu solat walau ia sedang tidak solat, dan dijaga oleh malaikat dengan dua doa, ampuni dosanya dan sayangi dia ya Allah.”

9. Amalkan istighfar setiap saat. Dengan istighfar masalah yang terjadi kerana dosa kita akan dijauhkan oleh Allah.

10. Bersolawat kepada Nabi SAW setiap waktu (jika mampu) kerana Allah dan malaikatNya pun bersolawat ke atas Nabi Muhammad SAW. Di akhirat nanti tiada siapa yang boleh menolong kita melainkan dengan syafaat nabi Muhammad SAW dengan izin Allah. Jika kita melupakan baginda di dunia ini, bagaimana mungkin baginda mengenal kita di padang mahsyar nanti?

Semoga kita diberi kekuatan untuk mengamalkannya….

Wallahu a’lam….

Myths and Facts About Caffeine

Reviewed by Brunilda Nazario

Caffeine is not addictive

Caffeine is a considered a safe ingredient. It is a stimulant that excites the nerves cells of the brain. While some stimulants, such as nicotine, are considered addictive, you aren’t likely to become addicted to caffeine if you consume it in moderation. However, habitual consumption can lead to adverse reactions in some people if they don’t get that morning cup of coffee. Those symptoms can include headache, fatigue, difficulty concentrating, nausea, and muscle pain.

“Moderate” caffeine consumption is defined as about how much per day for most adults?

Between 200 mg and 300 mg of caffeine, the amount in two to three cups of coffee, is considered a moderate amount and is generally considered safe for most adults.

Moderate caffeine consumption may reduce your risk of what?

Some studies have shown that moderate consumption of caffeine may reduce your risk of diabetes, gallstones, Parkinson’s disease, and liver disease. Despite these studies, though, doctors aren’t recommending caffeine consumption as a means to reduce your risks of disease.

Women who get a lot of caffeine should reduce their consumption when pregnant.

There is conflicting research on caffeine and pregnancy, but experts say pregnant women would be wise to moderate their intake. Some studies have linked a high intake of caffeine to increased risk for miscarriage and decreased fetal growth, but a cause-and-effect relationship has not been established. The American Dietetic Association recommends getting less than 300 mg per day, the equivalent of up to three cups of coffee, depending on the brew.

Mothers can transmit caffeine to their babies in breast milk.

Babies can indeed get a dose of caffeine from their mothers’ milk. However, according to the American Academy of Pediatrics, “A morning cup of coffee is not likely to harm your baby, but too much caffeine can cause problems, such as poor sleeping, nervousness, irritability, and poor feeding.”

The caffeine content in a cup of coffee can vary even if you get it at the same place every day.

The caffeine content in coffee can vary depending on brewing method, the type of bean used, and the amount prepared. For example, different extents of grinding the beans can yield different amounts of caffeine. Researchers in Florida ordered the same beverage from the same coffee shop for six consecutive days and found that the caffeine content ranged from 259 mg to 564 mg.

How do the effects of caffeine last?

Caffeine’s effects last long after you finish that cup of java. It takes 5 to 6 hours for your body to eliminate just half the caffeine in a cup of coffee, which is why having a cup in the afternoon can affect your sleep. In people who are more sensitive to caffeine, the effects may last even longer.

Caffeine is often added to headache medications because caffeine helps the body absorb headache drugs more quickly, bringing faster relief. Adding caffeine requires less medication for the same effect, reducing the risk for potential side effects and possible drug addiction.

Some skin care products, such as antiaging products containing caffeine have been shown to help make skin smoother and reduce the appearance of wrinkles.

A recent study found that men have a greater response to caffeine than women; however, another study suggested that this might not always be a good thing. Researchers found that caffeine tended to harm the performance of men in collaborative, stressful situations (such as an office environment), but it improved the performance of women.

Older adults can be more sensitive to caffeine because it takes their bodies longer to process it.

According to the National Institute of Mental Health, anyone suffering from anxiety disorders should avoid caffeine because it can aggravate symptoms, which include exaggerated worry and tension.

Contrary to popular belief, caffeine will not help anyone who is intoxicated become sober.

Caffeinated beverages do not generally contribute to dehydration. In the short term, caffeine may have a mild diuretic effect in people who do not normally consume caffeine, but this is not the case for those who habitually drink caffeinated beverages. All beverages, including those that contain caffeine, help maintain hydration.

Deaths from caffeine overdose are rare, but they can be caused by convulsions or an irregular heartbeat. The amount of caffeine considered to be an overdose varies by a person’s size, age and gender, but in general, doses of greater than 10 grams can be fatal in adults. A typical cup of coffee has about 115 mg of caffeine, so you’d need to drink more than 85 cups to consume 10 grams.

The FDA limits the caffeine content in soft drinks to 71 mg per 12 oz serving, but there is no limit on the amount of caffeine “energy drinks” can contain. Several energy drinks have more than 100 mg of caffeine per serving, and some have more than 200 mg.

Because high doses of caffeine can enhance physical performance — studies have shown it can increase muscle endurance during brief, intense exercise — NCAA athletes are not allowed to consume high doses of caffeine. The NCAA allows up to 15 micrograms of caffeine per milliliter of urine, high enough to allow for normal consumption of caffeinated beverages, but low enough to bar the use of high-dose caffeine supplements.
