Natijah matikan nafsu dan hati

“Aku dan diriku umpama pengembala kambing, setiap kali dikumpulkan di suatu sudut dia akan lari ke sudut yang lain. Barangsiapa yang mematikan nafsunya, dia akan dibalut dengan kain kapan Rahmat dan ditanam di bumi Kemuliaan, dan barangsiapa yang mematikan hatinya dia akan dibalut dengan kain kapan laknat dan ditanam di bumi yang penuh penyiksaan.” ~ Ali bin Abu Thalib r.a.

Kitab Injil Tua ditemui

Kitab Injil 1,500 tahun ditemui

Sumber Berita Harian 2012/02/28

KITAB Injil berusia 1,500 tahun yang ditemui di Turki dan dikatakan mencatat ramalan kedatangan Nabi Muhammad.

Terdapat catatan ramalan Nabi Isa mengenai kedatangan Muhammad SAW

ANKARA, Turki: Satu naskhah kitab Injil berusia 1,500 tahun yang mengandungi ramalan Nabi Isa mengenai kedatangan Nabi Muhammad menarik perhatian Vatican apabila pemimpin agama Roman Katolik, Pope Benedict XVI, dilaporkan meminta untuk melihat kitab itu, yang disembunyikan di Turki sejak 12 tahun lalu.

Menteri Kebudayaan dan Pelancongan Turki Ertugrul Gunay, memberitahu akhbar Daily Mail, naskhah yang dianggarkan bernilai AS$22 juta (RM66 juta) itu mengandungi ramalan Nabi Isa mengenai kedatangan Muhammad.

Bagaimanapun Gereja Kristian menghalang maklumat itu daripada disebarkan dan diketahui ramai selama bertahun-tahun, berikutan persamaannya dengan pandangan Islam mengenai Nabi Isa, katanya.

Dalam Islam, Nabi Isa dilayan sebagai manusia, bukan Tuhan. Ia menolak idea Holy Trinity dan penyaliban serta mendedahkan ramalan Nabi Isa mengenai kedatangan Nabi Muhammad.

Dalam satu versi kitab Injil itu, Nabi Isa dikatakan bercakap dengan paderi: Bagaimana hendak memanggil penyelamat itu? Dia Mohammed adalah nama diberkati.

Dalam satu lagi catatan, Nabi Isa menafikan beliau adalah penyelamat sebaliknya orang itu datang dari golongan Ismaili merujuk kepada bangsa Arab keturunan Nabi Ismail.

Menurut laporan, umat Islam mendakwa naskhah itu, yang dikatakan ramai ialah Injil Saint Barnabas, adalah tambahan kepada Injil asli Mark, Matthew, Luke dan John.

Saint Barnabas secara tradisi dikenali sebagai pengasas Gereja Cypriot dan seorang mubaligh era awal perkembangan agama Kristian.

Gunay berkata, kitab Injil berkenaan ditulis tangan di atas kulit haiwan dengan emas menggunakan bahasa Aramaik (dipercayai hampir serupa dengan bahasa Hebrew).

Beliau berkata, Vatican secara rasmi meminta untuk melihat buku itu, yang ditemui Turki ketika operasi antipenyeludupan pada 2000. Kumpulan samseng dilaporkan menyeludup pelbagai artifak purba.

Ia dikawal ketat oleh pihak berkuasa sebelum diserahkan kepada Muzium Etnografi Ankara dan akan dipamerkan tidak lama lagi. Salinan muka surat tunggal yang ditulis Nabi Isa dilaporkan bernilai AS$2.4 juta (RM7.2 juta).

Bagaimanapun, keraguan mengenai keaslian manuskrip bertulis tangan itu mula timbul. Paderi Protestan, Ihsan Ozbek, berkata buku versi itu dikatakan dari abad kelima atau keenam, manakala Saint Barbanas hidup pada abad pertama sebagai seorang daripada pesuruh Nabi Isa. – Agensi

Makanan bagi mood baik

Selain faktor persekitaran, makanan yang sesuai juga boleh mempengaruhi mood seseorang itu. Kalau mood tidak baik dibiarkan tanpa cuba diperbaiki, lama kelamaan ia akan bertukar menjadi kemurungan dan akhirnya akan menjejaskan kesihatan. Kalau mood tidak, orang di sekeliling juga akan menjauhkan diri.

Sumber makanan yang mengandungi nutrien atau bahan antioksidan yang meningkatkan fungsi otak dikatakan boleh mengurangkan kemurungan (depresi) dan seterusnya menggalakkan mood baik. Di antara sumber makanan tersebut ialah:
1. Kupang (mussel) – mengandungi vitamin B12 dan protein yang tinggi di samping zink, iodin dan selenium untuk mengawal atur tiroid.
2. Sayuran hijau seperti bayam, kacang soya dan ikan sebelah.
3. Ubi kentang biru yang kaya dengan anthocyanin iaitu antioksidan yang baik.
4. Daging lembu yang diberi makan rumput pastura yang mengandungi banyak asid linoleik (LA), tinggi kandungan omega-3 dan kurang lemak.
5. Coklat hitam yang menggalakkan mood baik.
6. Yogurt Greek, iaitu yogurt yang diperkayakan dengan kalsium.
7. Asparagus – sumber trytophan yang tinggi yang berfungsi sebagai transmitter bagi mengawal atur mood di otak, di samping mengandungi folate yang tinggi bagi melawan kemurungan.
8. Madu – mengurangkan keradangan dan kemurungan bagi otak yang sihat.
9. Tomato Cherry – tinggi dengan lycophene iaitu antioksidan yang melindungi otak dan melawan kemurungan.
10. Telur – mengandungi omega-3, vitamin B dan iodin yang meningkatkan mood baik.
11. Kelapa – mengandungi trigliserid rantai sederhana iaitu lemak yang menyihatkan otak dan seterusnya menyebabkan mood yang baik.

11 Foods That End Bad Moods

By David Zinczenko with Matt Goulding

Turns out my fast-food diet, with all those processed chemicals and hardly any nutrients, was throwing off my body’s feel-good chemistry. Drew Ramsey, M.D., co-author of The Happiness Diet, says that eating the wrong foods can add to our daily stress and make us feel anxious, lethargic, and downright grouchy.

What’s worse, a diet that deprives our brains of much-needed “happy” nutrients also makes us fat. When you’re stressed out, you’re more likely to reach for high-calorie junk foods that pack on the pounds, fueling a never-ending unhappiness cycle that goes like this: You eat bad, then you feel bad, so you eat worse, and then you feel—you guessed it—even worse.

But, Dr. Ramsey says, there’s an easy, drug-free way to boost your spirits and shrink your belly: brain food. Yep, feeding your brain with the right nutrients—found in the 11 simple foods below—is all you need to do to improve your mood, boost your energy, and keep your hands out of the chip bag for good.

And for more simple secrets that will keep you looking and feeling your best all year long, follow me right here on Twitter or sign up for our FREE Eat This, Not That! daily newsletter. You’ll learn how to lose weight without ever dieting again.

Mood-Boosting Food #1: Mussels

Mussels are loaded with some of the highest naturally occurring levels of vitamin B12 on the planet—a nutrient that most of us are lacking. So what’s B12’s mood-saving trick? It helps insulate your brain cells, keeping your brain sharp as you age. Mussels also contain the trace nutrients zinc, iodine, and selenium, which keep your mood-regulating thyroid on track. Another benefit? Mussels are high in protein and low in fat and calories, making them one of the healthiest, most nutrient-dense seafood options you’ll find. (Tip: For mussels that are good for your body and the environment, look for farmed—not wild—options raised in the good ol’ USA.)

Mood-Boosting Food #2: Swiss Chard

This leafy green is packed with magnesium—a nutrient essential for the biochemical reactions in the brain that increase your energy levels. A 2009 study in the Australian and New Zealand Journal of Psychiatry also found that higher magnesium intake was associated with lower depression scores. And Swiss chard isn’t the only way to get your magnesium hit. Spinach, soybeans, and halibut also contain healthy doses of the energy-enhancing nutrient.

Mood-Boosting Food #3: Blue Potatoes

Blue potatoes aren’t a common supermarket find, but they’re worth looking out for on your next trip to the farmer’s market. Blue spuds get their color from anthocyanins, powerful antioxidants that provide neuro-protective benefits like bolstering short-term memory and reducing mood-killing inflammation. Their skins are also loaded with iodine, an essential nutrient that helps regulate your thyroid. Other awesome anthocyanin-rich foods: berries, eggplant, and black beans.

Mood-Boosting Food #4: Grass-Fed Beef

Animals raised on grass pastures boast much higher levels of healthy conjugated linoleic acid (or CLA), a “happy” fat that combats stress hormones and blasts belly fat. Grass-fed beef also has a lower overall fat count and contains higher levels of heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids compared to grain-feed beef. Another great grass-fed option: lamb. It’s packed with iron, a nutrient vital for a stable mood (the areas of the brain related to mood and memory contain the highest iron concentrations). For easy “happy fat” recipes, check out these 4 Simple Mood-Boosting Meals.

Mood-Boosting Food #5: Dark Chocolate

Turns out chocolate’s delicious taste isn’t the only reason it makes you feel so warm and fuzzy. The cocoa treat also gives you an instant boost in mood and concentration, and improves blood flow to your brain, helping you feel more vibrant and energized. But sorry, Snickers bars don’t count. Cocoa is the chocolate ingredient that does your body good, so pure dark chocolate is your best bet if you want the mood-boosting benefits minus the extra belly flab. And don’t overdo it: A recent study published in the Journal of Psychopharmacology found that a few ounces of dark chocolate a day is all you need to reap the benefits.

Mood-Boosting Food #6: Greek Yogurt

This dairy pick is packed with more calcium than you’ll find in milk or regular yogurt, which is good news for your mood. Calcium gives your body the “Go!” command, alerting your brain to release feel-good neurotransmitters. As a result, inadequate calcium intake can lead to anxiety, depression, irritability, impaired memory, and slow thinking. Greek yogurt also contains more protein than regular yogurt, making it a terrific stay-slim snack. Our Greek-yogurt pick: Fage Total 2%, which packs an impressive 10 grams of protein per serving.

Mood-Boosting Food #7: Asparagus

Your mom was on to something when she made you finish those green spears at the dinner table. This vegetable is one of the top plant-based sources of tryptophan, which serves as a basis for the creation of serotonin—one of the brain’s primary mood-regulating neurotransmitters. Asparagus also boasts high levels of folate, a nutrient that may fight depression (research shows that up to 50 percent of people with depression suffer from low folate levels). Some other terrific sources of tryptophan: turkey, tuna, and eggs.

Mood-Boosting Food #8: Honey

Honey, unlike table sugar, is packed with beneficial compounds like quercetin and kaempferol that reduce inflammation, keeping your brain healthy and warding off depression. Honey also has a less dramatic impact on your blood-sugar levels than regular sugar, so it won’t send your body into fat-storage mode the way the white stuff can. Try adding some honey to your afternoon tea or morning bowl of oatmeal, but don’t go overboard; the sweet nectar has 17 g of sugar and 64 calories per tablespoon, so too much honey can make you heavy, rather than happy.

Mood-Boosting Food #9: Cherry Tomatoes

Tomatoes are a great source of lycopene, an antioxidant that protects your brain and fights depression-causing inflammation. And because lycopene lives in tomato skins, you’ll get more of the stuff if you throw a handful of cherry tomatoes into your next salad instead of slicing up one full-size tomato. Or enjoy them on their own with a little olive oil, which has been shown to increase lycopene absorption. And try to go organic whenever possible: Researchers at the University of California-Davis found that organic tomatoes have higher lycopene levels.

MOOD-BOOSTING RESTAURANT MEALS: Not all delicious-sounding restaurant dishes will set you back in your quest for health and happiness. Find out which meals ended up on our list of 20 Shockingly Healthy Restaurant Foods.

Mood-Boosting Food #10: Eggs

Eggs are loaded with mood-promoting omega-3 fatty acids, zinc, B vitamins, and iodide, and because they’re packed with protein, they’ll also keep you full and energized long after you eat them. Need another reason to crack some shells in the morning? A 2008 study in the International Journal of Obesity found that people who ate two eggs for breakfast lost significantly more weight than those who ate a bagel breakfast. (Tip: Don’t buy into unregulated supermarket-egg claims like “omega-3 enriched” or “free-range.” If you’re looking for the most natural eggs, hit up a local farmer.)

Mood-Boosting Food #11: Coconut

Coconut is chock-full of medium-chain triglycerides, fats that keep your brain healthy and fuel better moods. And although coconut is commonly found in high-calorie desserts, you don’t have to (and shouldn’t) stuff your face with macaroons to get your fix. My suggestion: Try throwing some unsweetened coconut shavings in your oatmeal or yogurt, or toss some in your next healthy smoothie for a flavor boost that will keep you smiling and skinny.

BERN – Sejenis bakteria yang berada dalam mulut didakwa mampu membunuh jika ia memasuki saluran darah, menurut penyelidikan saintis di Switzerland.

Penyelidik mendapati sejenis bakteria yang dipanggil Streptococcus tigurinus, boleh memasuki saluran darah walaupun jika gusi berdarah.

Hasil kajian yang dilakukan terhadap seorang pesakit, mendapati bakteria dalam darah pesakit itu menyebabkan dia diserang endokarditis (radang jantung), meningitis dan spondylodiscitis (radang tulang belakang).

Kajian yang diketuai Dr Andrea Zbinden dari Universiti Zurich itu diterbitkan dalam International Journal of Systematic and Evolutionary Microbiology.

Zbinden berkata, mereka kini sedang melakukan kajian lanjut mengenai serangan bakteria tersebut supaya ia dapat dirawat segera.

Nasihat kepada orang muda

“Manshur bin Ammar telah berkata kepada seorg pemuda yg dinasihatinya: “Wahai anak muda! Janganlah engkau diperdayakan oleh waktu mudamu, berapa ramai pemuda yg melambatkan taubatnya dan memanjangkan cita-citanya serta tidak mengingati matinya, mereka mengatakan, ‘Aku akan bertaubat esok atau lusa,’ tiba-tiba malaikal-maut datang utk mencabut nyawanya dan ia masih belum sempat bertaubat, maka jadilah dirinya dalam perut kubur seorang diri, pada waktu itu tiada berguna lagi hartanya, hambanya, anaknya, ibu dan bapanya, mereka semua tidak dapat menolongnya, sebagaimana firman Allah Ta’ala:

Ertinya: “Di hari harta dan anak-anak tidak berguna, kecuali orang-orang yang menghadap Allah dengan hati yang bersih (tenang).” (QS Asy-Syu’ara’: 88-89).” ~ Manshur bin Ammar
