Why is E.D.U.C.A.T.I.O.N so important?

The first thing that strikes me about education is knowledge gain. Education gives us the knowledge of the world around us. It develops in us a perspective of looking at life. It helps us build opinions and have points of view on everything in life. People debate over the subject of whether education is the only thing that gives knowledge. Some say, education is the process of gaining information about the surrounding world while knowledge is something very different. They are partly right. But the conversion of information to knowledge is possible because of education. Education makes us capable of interpreting rightly the things perceived. Education is not about lessons and poems in textbooks. It is about the lessons of life.

The words 'cultivate' and 'civilize' are almost synonymous to the word 'educate'. That says it! Education is important as it teaches us the right behavior, the good manners thus making us civilized. It teaches us how to lead our lives. Education is the basis of culture and civilization. It is instrumental in the development of our values and virtues. Education cultivates us into mature individuals, individuals capable of planning for our futures and taking the right decisions. Education arms us with an insight to look at our lives and learn from every experience. The future of a nation is safe in the hands of educated individuals. Education is important for the economic growth of a nation. It fosters principles of equality and socialism. Education forms a support system for talents to excel in life. It is the backbone of society.

Education is important because it equips us with all that is needed to make our dreams come true. Education opens doors of brilliant career opportunities. It fetches better prospects in career and growth. Every employer of today requires his prospective employees to be well educated. He requires expertise. So, education becomes an eligibility criterion for employment into any sector of the industry. We are rewarded for exercising the expertise required for the field we venture. We are weighed in the market on the basis of our educational skills and how well we can apply them.

Education is essential as it paves the path leading to disillusionment. It wipes out all the wrong beliefs in our minds. It helps create a clear picture of everything around us and we no more remain in confusion about the things we learn. Education brings up questions and also devises ways to find satisfactory answers to them. Education is about knowing that everything has a science to it, it is about learning to reason everything till every question meets its answer. Education can lead us to enlightenment. It is education that builds in every individual, a confidence to take decisions, to face life and to accept successes and failures. It instills a sense of pride about the knowledge one has and prepares him/her for life! 

Schools and colleges define the basic framework of education. Schooling gives us the fundamentals whereas we specialize in fields of our interest, during the degree courses. 
 Self-learning begins at the point that marks the end of institutional education. 
The process of self-learning continues...

But education does not end here. 
It is a lifelong process.....

Tips Kesihatan

Menjaga kesihatan adalah dituntut oleh Agama. Banyak cara menjaga kesihatan tubuh badan mahupun dari segi sains dan diajar oleh Al-Quran antaranya adalah spt:-

1. Bersenam @ beriadah.
2. Mengawal makanan.

Tahukah anda mengamal minum secawan air teh "O" setiap pagi boleh mengawal berat badan anda. InsyaAllah jika anda mengamalkannya, berat badan anda akan berkurangan. (memang terbukti keberkesanan).

Al-Quran juga ada mengajar kita menjaga kesihatan seperti membuat amalan:-

1. Mandi Pagi sebelum subuh atau sekurang kurangnya sejam sebelum matahari naik. Air sejuk yang meresap kedalam badan boleh mengurangkan lemak mengumpul. Kita boleh saksikan orang mengamal mandi pagi kebanyakan badan tak gemuk.

2. Rasulullah mengamalkan minum segelas air sejuk setiap pagi. Mujarabnya InsyaAllah jauh dari penyakit (susah nak kena sakit).

3. Waktu sembahyang subuh disunatkan kita bertafakur (iaitu sujud sekurang kurangnya seminit selepas membaca doa). Ia boleh mengelak dari sakit pening atau migrin. Ini terbukti oleh para saintis yang membuat kajian kenapa dalam sehari perlu kita sujud. Ahli-ahli sains telah menemui beberapa milimeter ruang udara dalam saluran darah di kepala yang tidak dipenuhi darah. Dengan bersujud maka darah akan mengalir ke ruang berkenaan.

4. Dalam kitab juga ada melarang kita makan makanan darat bercampur dengan makanan laut. Nabi pernah menegah kita makan ikan bersama susu. Dikhuatiri akan cepat mendapat penyakit. Ini terbukti oleh saintis yang menjumpai dimana dalam badan ayam mengandungi ion (+) manakala
dalam ikan mengandungi ion (-). Jika dalam suapan ayam bercampur dengan ikan maka terjadi tindak balas biokimia yang terhasil yang boleh merosakkan usus kita.

5. Nabi juga mengajar kita makan dengan tangan dan bila habis hendaklah menjilat jari. Begitu juga ahli saintis telah menjumpa bahawa enzime banyak terkandung di celah-celah jari, iaitu 10 kali ganda terdapat dalam air liur. (enzime sejenis alat percerna makanan, tanpanya makanan tidak hadam)

The importance of a balanced diet cannot be overstated. A balanced diet provides natural disease a prevention, weight control and proper sleep without the use of sleeping pills.
A balanced diet is also important because it enables you to meet your daily nutritional needs and enjoy a higher overall quality of life.

Disease Prevention
Eating a balanced diet is the easiest way to protect yourself from many of the diseases associated with aging, including diabetes and heart disease. Eating too much of any one food group is not a wise idea. Even if you eat only vegetables (a healthy food), there is a chance you could still be unprotected from disease because your body needs the vitamins and minerals found in the other food groups to stay healthy. Eating in a balanced way boosts your energy level and ensures your body functions normally. A balanced diet also enables you to live longer!!!!!

Meeting Nutritional Needs
Your daily food intake should include grain, fruit, milk (or other dairy products), vegetables, beans, oils and protein. According to the Food Pyramid developed by the U.S Department of Agriculture, you should eat six to eleven servings of grain, two or four servings of fruit, three to five servings of vegetables and two to three servings of dairy and protein. Fats and oils should be eaten rarely. Healthy foods contain vitamins and minerals that boost immunity and serve as natural protection from many common illnesses.

Weight Control
If you are overweight, eating a balanced diet can be an important first step towards weight loss. Many people who are able to lose weight through being part of fad diets gain the weight back when they return to their own eating habits. A balanced diet can also help you maintain your weight loss in the long term. if you are underweight, eating balanced diet can help you gain weight and maintain the weight gain in the long term.

Proper Sleep
Eating too much of a certain kind of food can cause you to be unable to fall asleep (such as foods with high levels of artificial sugar, like candy). Eating heavy, oily foods can cause you to have difficulty waking up in the morning. Eating a balanced diet will enable you not to sleep better without the use of sleeping pills but also feel more rested when you wake up.

Quality of Life
Eating a balanced diet is important because it allows you to enjoy life, have more energy, feel less stress and accomplish more in less time. You will have fewer illnesses and medical bills. A balanced diet is the foundation of good health and well-being.

Bad Effect of Smoking

Whether you smoke 5 cigarettes a day or 50, there is no doubt that smoking is extremely bad for you and will seriously affect your health in some way.

Smoking cigarettes can harm almost every organ in your body, from top to bottom and inside and out. Moreover, it is only now that doctors are beginning to discover the true extent of the harm that smoking can cause to a person’s health and to the health of those around him. Smoking over a prolonged period of time can cause a number of serious diseases and illnesses, some fatal and others that will not kill you but will leave you with a poorer quality of life in general.

Usually a person takes up smoking when they are young and the effects that smoking may have on their health does not enter their head at the time. Within a short while,they will become addicted to nicotine and it will be too late to give up. The younger a person starts to smoke, the greater the health risks they will face later on in life.
Smoking is one of the biggest single causes of preventable disease and premature death in a large number of mainly developed countries around the world. In the UK around 120,000 people die each year from smoking-related diseases. 50% of long-term smokers die prematurely from smoking, a large number of them when they reach middle age.

Globally around 2.5 million people die each year from smoking and it has been estimated that some time during the 2020’s the number of deaths caused by smoking will hit the 10 million mark.
Smoking reduces a person’s life expectancy from anything from 7 years to 30 years. Generally smokers are less healthy and less physically fit than non-smokers. In addition, they take more days off work through illness than non-smokers and are more prone to common illnesses such as colds or sore throats. Smokers will get out of breath much quicker after exertion and find it harder to exercise and they will also have a higher risk of infections, as the body’s immune system is damaged from smoking.

As well as having long-term negative effects on a person’s health, smoking also has immediate effects on the body. After smoking a cigarette your blood pressure will rise and your heart rate will increase by about 20 beats per minute. Carbon monoxide, a poisonous gas, will enter the lungs and begin to replace the oxygen. The tiny hairs in the lungs that filter the air that you breath will cease to work,as they become paralyzed by the poisons that are contained in tobacco smoke. Circulation, especially to the hands and feet becomes less efficient and the temperature of the skin may drop by up to 5 Celsius. Your nervous system will be altered and smoking can cause muscle tension.

Jiwa Sihat, Tingkah Laku Mulia

MANUSIA mempunyai dua badan iaitu jasmani (tubuh kasar) dan rohani (tubuh halus). Kedua-dua unsur ini saling melengkapi dan mempengaruhi antara satu sama lain. Demi mendapat kebahagiaan hakiki, rohani dan jasmani perlu diletakkan di landasan diredhai Allah.
Rohani atau disebut juga batin, jiwa atau kalbu, sangat berkait rapat dengan tindak-tanduk manusia. Jika rohani tidak sihat atau sakit, sudah tentu tindak-tanduk manusia akan menyeleweng daripada landasan syariat.
Oleh itu, menjadi kewajipan dan tanggungjawab setiap manusia menjaga dan memelihara jiwa supaya tidak dilanda pelbagai penyakit.
Dr Hamzah Ya’qub dalam buku “Tingkat Ketenangan dan Kebahagiaan Mukmin” mengutarakan pengenalan mengenai penyakit rohani iaitu:
  • Sifat buruk dan merosak dalam batin manusia yang mengganggu kebahagiaan.
  • Sikap mental yang buruk, merosak dan merintangi peribadi memperoleh keredhaan Allah.
  • Sifat dan sikap dalam hati yang tidak diredhai Allah, sifat dan sikap mental yang cenderung mendorong peribadi melakukan perbuatan buruk dan merosak.
Gambaran di atas menunjukkan mereka yang mengalami penyakit rohani, tingkah laku atau akhlaknya dipengaruhi gejala tidak sihat dan menyalahi peraturan digariskan Islam seperti dengki, pemarah, riak, takbur, terlalu cinta hal keduniaan dan suka berprasangka buruk.
Penyakit rohani yang dikira paling bahaya ialah munafik yang menyembunyikan kekufuran dalam hatinya dan menyatakan iman dengan lidahnya seperti firman Allah yang bermaksud:
“Dan sebahagian daripada manusia ada yang berkata: Kami telah beriman kepada Allah dan kepada hari kemudian, padahal mereka sebenarnya bukan orang beriman. Mereka hendak menipu Tuhan dan orang beriman, dan tiadalah mereka tipu melainkan diri mereka sendiri, akan tetapi mereka tiada sedar. Di hati mereka ada penyakit, dan adalah bagi mereka seksaan yang pedih, kerana mereka telah berdusta.” (Surah al-Baqarah, ayat 9-10)
Sukar mengenal orang munafik kerana mereka sangat bijak dan licik dalam menyembunyikan sifat itu. Namun, Rasulullah SAW pernah memberi tanda orang munafik melalui sabda Baginda bermaksud:
“Sesiapa yang ada padanya empat sifat dia benar-benar munafik, sesiapa yang ada satu daripadanya bererti dia ada satu sifat munafik. Sehingga dia meninggalkannya iaitu apabila bercakap dia dusta, apabila dipercayai dia khianat, apabila berjanji dia menyalahi dan apabila bertengkar dia melampaui batas.” (Hadis riwayat Bukhari)
Kebanyakan manusia apabila jasmaninya terkena penyakit, ia bergegas berjumpa doktor atau mencari ubat supaya penyakitnya cepat sembuh dan tidak menderita lebih lama. Namun mereka tidak begitu jika rohaninya yang sakit.
Seharusnya perasaan takut juga dirasai apabila rohani dijangkiti penyakit. Kita perlu segera berusaha menyembuhkannya sebelum penyakit itu merebak lebih teruk. Demikian orang beriman akan bertindak segera apabila rohaninya dijangkiti penyakit.
Usaha penyembuhan paling baik ialah bermuhasabah diri. Rasulullah SAW bersabda yang bermaksud:
“Orang yang cerdik ialah yang memeriksa dirinya, bersedia untuk beramal sebagai bekal untuk mati dan orang yang lemah ialah yang selalu menurutkan keinginannya dan mengharapkan pelbagai angan kepada Allah.” (Hadis riwayat Tirmizi)
Apabila selalu mengikut telunjuk nafsu, keinginan hati dan melupakan segala suruhan Allah, tentu seseorang mengalami kerugian besar sama ada di dunia atau akhirat seperti firman Allah yang bermaksud:
“Demi masa. Sesungguhnya manusia itu dalam kerugian kecuali orang yang beriman dan beramal soleh dan saling berpesan supaya mentaati kebenaran dan saling nasihat-menasihati supaya menjalankan kesabaran.” (Surah al-Asr, ayat 1-3)
Penyakit rohani juga boleh diubati melalui taubat dan beristighfar. Bertaubat bermakna sedar dan serta-merta berhenti daripada memiliki sifat mazmumah itu, membencinya dengan sepenuh hati dan tidak mungkin akan mengulanginya.
Firman Allah yang bermaksud:
“Dan orang yang apabila telah berbuat kejahatan atau menganiaya diri mereka sendiri, maka mereka ingat kepada Allah dan mereka memohon ampun atas dosanya.” (Surah Al-Imran, ayat 135)
Selalu berdoa memohon perlindungan Allah apabila diganggu syaitan, boleh mengelak daripada terkena cengkaman penyakit rohani sebagai suruhan Allah dalam firman yang bermaksud:
“Dan jika engkau diganggu oleh satu gangguan dari syaitan, maka mohon perlindungan kepada Allah kerana sesungguhnya Allah itu Maha Mendengar dan Maha Tahu.” (Surah al-Fussilat, ayat 36)
Sebagai mukmin yang selalu ingat kepada-Nya, hendaklah kita menjauhi kemungkaran hati yang bukan saja menyebabkan jiwa dibalut kegelisahan, malah boleh mencetuskan pergaduhan dan memecah belah masyarakat harmoni.
Allah berfirman yang bermaksud:
Orang munafik lelaki dan perempuan, sebahagian dengan sebahagian yang lain adalah sama, mereka menyuruh membuat mungkar dan melarang berbuat makruf dan mereka menggenggam tangannya. Mereka lupa kepada Allah, maka Allah melupakan mereka. Sesungguhnya orang munafik itulah orang yang fasik.” (Surah at-Taubah, ayat 67)
Oleh itu, dalam mencari kebahagiaan sebenar dan keredhaan Allah, seorang Muslim perlu sentiasa menyuburkan jiwanya dengan sifat mahmudah yang dimiliki junjungan besar Nabi Muhammad SAW serta sahabat.

Apabila rohani bersih murni, terpancar pada dirinya sahsiah dan akhlak terpuji yang disukai Allah malah, sepanjang hidupnya dipenuhi dengan melakukan amalan soleh dan sentiasa menjaga tingkah laku supaya mendapat keredaan Allah selain disenangi masyarakat sekeliling.
