From Weirdo to Beardo, how islamic tradition flows in harmony with contemporary science

We reached freezing temperatures , that ought to paralyse  brain cells .A cold start in the new year. When nature compels us to go back to the roots and embrace our natural inclination.  Arctic Air or in different words, possibly the coldest winter since 1986.

Fab the  Beanie manufacturer has been hit by the cold air circulating across the globe, and used weather condition as an inspiration. Beardo  is a beanie to wear like beard. Incredibly smart ? Well is really that smart. I mean science observes nature to understand us as  being, and produce technology, which helps us to overcome obstacles. The same principle applies to Fab’s product developement. Man by nature do have facial hair, which symbolises virility.  There is not such thing as, how to grow your beard some have it some don’t have it. It is given thing like your eye colour, thus the only control over beard is to shave or not.

Narrated Ibn ‘Umar:

Allah’s Apostle said, “Cut the moustaches short and leave the beard (as it is).”

 Sahih Bukhari ,5893, Book 77, hadtih 110,Vol. 7, Book 72, Hadith 781,

Scientists agree with this findings.  The University of Southern Queensland conducted researches and published in the Radiation Protection Dosimetry journal. Wearing a beard not only protects against  arctic  weather conditions, but also block 90 to 95 percent of UV rays, which protects  the skin from aging. This overall prevents skin cancer. Beards become moisture and keep it which is a protection for  the face. Fresh face instead of acne and ingrown hairs and bacterial infections.

Ancient Egyptians regarded the beard as untidy, so did Alexander the Great. Although throughout history we will find numerous civilization honouring the Beard. For instance ,the Spartan penalized their cowards by shaving their beards. Epictetus a greek  Stoic philosopher went further by saying  in his discourses 1.2.29 he would embrace death before shaving his beard. What conviction, compels him to say something like that. The answer is he understood something that all  Prophets of Allah  (Glorified and Exalted he be) have understood. Living in harmony with nature and its totality brings the human being to acknowledge our real state of mind.

 

We are so different now, we have  multi million dollar concerns such as, Gillette  advocating  clean shave as sexy since the beginning of the 20th century . Towards the second world war, American movie actor had clean shave super heroes like Superman, and Batman. These elements revolt to a society that lost its beard literally, and  was the code of conduct at the beginnings of the 20 th century until now.  (Ibrahim Aley selam)  has been ordered to  shorten his moustache, clip his finger nails and shave the pubic hair  and arm pit.

This is the state  we are aiming for, you want to feel one with your body, so let your body be the way it supposed to be. Do we have to wait until nature literally  forces us to come up with ideas like Fab did ?

living in today’s society only proves more reason to believe we are missing the link to discover the blessings and the reality of  Allah( Glorified and Exalted he be )

Nothing leads to Nothing

It has been a week ago, since the debate on “Islam or Atheism” has taken place at UCL, and yet you still see the social communities still sharing and discussing the main events of the debate. Dawah Man and Uthman Ibn Tariq, two well-known Da’ee (May Allah grant them the highest ranks in paradise) took it to the next level by literally experimenting the theory of nothingness by putting it into practice for a day. A deviant empirical claim in it’s best shape refuted in a humours way.

Heartfelt relief for the sisters ?

Modern times and  progress  may seem to be  synonyms.  Well in the case of Iglot a Polish company, progress is being positive. Breathable nail polish from the Polish men ironical at least by the sound of it.

The  recently deceased Polish scientist Wojcieh Iglot created a formula that allows Oxygen and moisture to go through the polish. O2M is the new formula which gained the company entirely new demographics.

Inglot and some Muslims say the company's O2M breathable nail polish is the first of its kind because it lets air and moisture pass through to the nail. A craze has built up around it with Muslim women in recent months after an Islamic scholar in the United States tested its permeability and published an article saying that, in his view, it complies with Muslim law.

The inventor himself was more surprised about the feedback of the Muslim,as the primary aim was to create a healthy nail polish. Iglot himself  says in an interview with The Associated press ” I don’t think there is a single Muslim living here”, “We didn’t even think about this.”

Although everything sounds promising Iglot himself considers the nail polish not fully Sharia compiled. He suggested to gather more data on the product in order to responsibly promote it as Halal, which Iglot cooperation affirms to continue to do so. Meanwhile Umar Mustafa, the director of Islamic Institute of Orange County in California, commenced the research to pass a ruling on it.

He probed O2M by using coffee filters. Ordinary polish and O2M were placed on the Coffee filters to dry. Umar then poured water drops  both times. Indeed the moisture oozed through the O2M polish, as for the conventional nail polish it did not.

For universal consensus on the issue it iss too early to rule it out completely, however time an effort has been spent by our Beloved Brother Umar Mustafa. Lets see what time will bring insha’ Allah, for indeed for every problem there is solution.

Dont tell me you did not know !,Camera Obscura,

Did you know that the first concept of a camera was designed and created by a muslim. Kodak, Nokia, Canon, I phone and Samsung are only capable of doing so because of these great blue print laid by our great inventor.
Ibn a-Haytham(965-1039) the inventor of the qamara(in arabic) observed an up-side down image shining through hole projecting the image on the opposite wall.
