The test of true love....to the end.   "......  'Till death do us part..." !

The test of true love....to the end.   "......  'Till death do us part..." !


The Rain
Description:
It was a busy
morning, about 8:30, when an elderly
gentleman in his 80's arrived to have
stitches removed from his thumb.
He said he was in a hurry as he had an
appointment at 9:00 am.
I took his vital
signs and had him take a seat,
knowing it would be over an hour
before someone
would to able to see him.
I saw him looking at his watch and
decided, since I
was not busy with another patient,
I would evaluate his wound.
On exam, it was
well healed, so I talked to one of the
doctors, got the needed supplies to
remove his sutures and redress his wound.

While taking care of
his wound, I asked him if he
had another doctor's appointment
this morning, as
he was in such a hurry.

The gentleman told me no, that he
needed to go to
the nursing home to eat breakfast
with his wife. I enquired as to her
health.
Description:
He told me that she had been there
for a while and that she
was a victim of Alzheimer's Disease.

As we talked, I asked if she would be
upset if he was a bit late.

He replied that she no longer knew
who he was, that she had not
recognised him in
five years now.
Description:
I was surprised, and asked him,
'And you still go every
morning, even though she
doesn't know who you are?'

He smiled as he
patted my hand and said,

'She doesn't
know me, but I still know who she is.'
Description:
I had to hold back
tears as he left, I had goose bumps
on my arm, and thought,

'That is
the kind of love I want in my life.'

True love is
neither physical, nor romantic.
Description:
True love is an
acceptance of all that is,
has been, will be, and will not
be.

With all the jokes
and fun that are in e-mails,
sometimes there is one that comes
along that has an
important message..
This one I thought I could share with you.

The happiest people don't necessarily
have the best of everything;
they just make
the best of everything they have.

I hope you share this with someone you
care about. I just did.
Description:
'Life isn't about
how to survive the storm,
But how to dance
in the rain.'
We are all getting Older
Tomorrow may be our turn.

Garam

Amalan Rasulullah S.A.W memakan secubit garam sebelum dan selepas makan
kini dibuktikan oleh sains bahawa tabiat ini menambahkan keberkesanan perut
untuk menghadam makanan dan menghindarkan perut dari menyerap racun.

Pada zaman Yunani, Tentera Yunani ( askar Greek ) dibayar gaji menggunakan
garam .Begitu juga dengan episod penjajahan negara kecil oleh negara besar
dengan mengenakan hukuman penjara kepada penentang mereka .

.Apabila dipenjarakan, mereka ( penentang ) akan diberi makanan seperti
roti dan air tanpa garam .Walaupun kerap dihidangkan dengan roti dan air
tanpa garam, badan mereka tetap lemah memandangkan kurangnya kandungan
garam dalam badan.

SUNNAH-SUNNAH BERKAITAN GARAM

Dari Abdullah Bin Umar

" Sesungguhnya ALLAH menurunkan empat perkara berkat ( mempunyai kebaikan )
dari langit ( menerusi hujan ) ke bumi iaitu besi, api ,air dan garam"

Hadis Riwayat Al-Baghawiy dalam tafsirnya .

Dari Anas Bin Malik, nabi bersabda " Penghulu segala lauk pauk kamu ialah
garam ."

Hadis riwayat Ibnu Majah

" Tiadalah akan baik makanan itu melainkan dengan garam "
