Inspirational Story of Allahyarhamah “Bara’a”

Inspirational Story of “Bara’a”

Bara’a is a 10 year old girl from Egypt and belong to small happy religious family. Both of her parents are doctors and have moved to Saudi Arabia for better opportunities. Bara’a is a very sweet and intelligent young girl and she succeeded, at this young age, to memorize the entire Quran along with its proper rules. Unfortunately, tragedy was in its way to change the course of life for this young girl.

One day her mother felt a lot of pain and after some medical tests she was diagnosed with a deadly form of cancer. Then her mother began to think about her young girl’s future and how she can tell “Bara’a” of the devastating news. How she would wake up one day without her mother besides her. Afterward the mother decided to tell her daughter and said:

“Mommy will soon be going to Heaven, ahead of you, sweet heart”

She emphasized to her that she should continue reciting the Holy Quran everyday which would protect her and keep her safe in this life. At this time Bara’a could not fully comprehend what lays ahead. Soon after, she began to recognize the gravity of the matter when her mother’s health deteriorated and she was admitted to the hospital. Then Bara’a began going to visit her mother at the hospital every day after school and recite the holy Quran next to her mother’s bed until late in the afternoon. She keeps doing that until her father would come from work to pick her up.

One morning the hospital called the house and asked Bara’a’s father to come to the hospital immediately for his wife’s health has gone for the worse and she was near death. The father immediately took his daughter Bara’a and left for the hospital, but he did not inform his daughter what was going on with her mother. When they arrived at the hospital he thought to himself that he should leave his daughter in the car so that she would not be shocked of whatever is waiting to happen to her mother. Therefore he asked his daughter to stay in the car while he finds out more of her mother’s situation and he assured her he would be back in a few minutes. He stepped out of the car and his eyes are filled with tears; bewildered of the grim news of the fate of his wife. While he was walking away from his car Bara’a was watching him crossing then another tragedy hit; he was struck by an incoming bus and was killed immediately. She ran out of her car hysterically and threw herself at her father‘s dead body.

Bara’a’s tragic events do not end here. The hospital staff did not tell Bara’a’s sick mother, who was fighting for her life at the hospital, of the death of her husband which occurred on his way to see her. Five days after, Bara’s mother lost her battle with cancer and died leaving Bara’a alone in Saudia Arabia with no family members nor relatives. She lost her mother and father in the same week. Some friends and good people who were touched by the tragedy of Bara’a story attempted to help her to return to her grand parent family back in Egypt. While arrangements were under way to send Bara’a home, another tragedy came her way again but this time she was the target. She experienced a sudden pain and after some medical test sure enough she was diagnosed with same form of cancer which killed her mother. At this point, when Bara’a was told of her diagnosis of cancer she smiled and said: all praise be to Allah, at last, I will be seeing my Baba and Mama soon.

It is extraordinary to see this young child welcome death and accept the decree of God which has befallen upon her.

Bara’s tragic story became known in Saudia Arabia then an anonymous Saudi Man, a good Samaritan, decided to send Bara’a to London for medical treatment. While Bara’a was being treated in the hospital in London she was interviewed by an Egyptian TV station, called al-Hafiz TV. She was asked to recite verses from the holy Quran aired for a special program dedicated to Quran recitation. Her recitation was powerful and heavenly sweet and brought tears to the program anchor. I am certain it will bring tears to anyone who listens to her beautiful recitation (see link below).

The cancer has taken its toll on Bara’s health and she went through a lot of pain and suffering in the hospital. She was going into commas periodically. During these difficult times, another TV station interviewed her in the hospital and asked her to recite a song about the Mother and orphans. She made millions crying in the Arab world while she was singing .

Here is the English translation for the orphan song which was sung beautifully by this girl Bara’a. So before you listen the to the third link below you may want to read the lyrics of that song below ..

O tear of the Orphan
O painful letters
My father has died,
so tell the merciful souls
O tear of the Orphan

O tear of the Orphan
O painful letters
My father has died,
so who is there for me,
to throw love around me

O tear of the Orphan
Tell them so that I may,
Get generous hands
Get generous hands
O tear of the Orphan
O painful letters
My father has died,
so tell the merciful souls
O tear of the Orphan
Tell them the story of the young,
Who have gone to bed without guardian,
O broken tears
O tear of the Orphan
O painful letters
My dear fathers;
the speech has frozen in the mouth
And we are left with an orphaned tears…
with an orphaned tears…
with an orphaned tears…
with an orphaned tears…



Hari2 yg berlalu Bara’a terus hidup menderita. Kanser tlh melarat ke kakinya. Doktor memutuskan untuk memotong kakinya dalam usaha untuk menyekat penyebaran barah. Dlm tempoh masa yg sukar ini Baraah terus membaca ayat2 suci Al Quran. Kdg2 dia koma dan apabila terjaga, dia terus membaca (mengaji) utk memberikannya semangat utk terus hidup. Kanser merebak ke otak dan doktor memutuskan untuk melakukan operasi otak untuk menghilangkan sel-sel kanser. Dia baru sahaja meninggal dunia pada 26 Jun 2010..innanillahi wainna ilaihi raaji'un..


KEKUATAN ITU HANYA DARI ALLAH..even when we feel like we live for nothing, we smile for nobody to see, and we cry for nobody to hear...she (Bara'a) found..the reason why she shouldn't give up..because her story, herDYING body, and her amazing voice actually give LIFE for others' hearts...

vertigo?he didn't feel it...



video

After finished watching the video...only one thing that remain in my mind...didn't the man feel vertigo?

here..let's take 3 minutes to revise bout vertigo...

definition of vertigo : sense that the world is turning around or that's one head is revolving.... It is a false feeling of motion

cause : in the case above...it was post rotatory vertigo...

mechanism: which is stoppage (or rapid slowing of rotation) ----> produce asymmetrical discharge from the SCC(semicircular canal located in the inner ear) for about 20-30s.---->evoke the feeling of vertigo(specially if original rotation is fast and prolonged) ----> feeling of being rotated to the opposite side of the previous rotation ....although the actual rotation has stopped...

ok....let's stop here *_^

..::KUKATAKAN INI PADAMU::..



Dulu, ketika aku di bawah

Hatiku dan tindakanku sering memberontak

Arahan pimpinanku sering kupersoal

Mengapa begini bukan begitu

Mengapa aku bukan mereka

Sedang bukan aku tidak punyai masa

Bukan aku tidak punya upaya

Cuma aku yg tegar

Enggan membuka pintu hatiku

Untuk cuba memahami dan mengerti

Erti sebuah amanah

Erti sebuah tanggungjawab

***

Tetapi kini

Pabila aku berada di atas

Baru kumengerti sedalam-dalamnya

Mengapa begitu bukan begini

Mengapa aku bukan mereka

***

Ketika kucuba menjelaskan pada mereka

Kudapat melihat mereka persis diriku dahulu

Yang teragak-agak mahu berkorban

Yang berkira-kira mahu menyumbang

Sedang aturannya

Jika kita ikhlas, ganjarannya bukan sedikit

Tuhan juga sedang menilai

Adakah kita turut sama memberi sesuatu untuk agamaNya

***

Justeru aku kan terus menyeru

Pada mereka pada semua

Satukan hati kita

Kerna kuyakini dengan hadaf perjuangan ini

Bukakan hatimu kawan

Lapangkan dadamu rakan

Hulurkan tanganmu pegang erat tanganku

Mari bersama kita meniti perjalanan ini

Biar payah, itu fitrah

Kita sentiasa saling menguatkan

Jika ada yang rebah, jangan tergugah

Kerana ada seribu tangan sudi membahumu dari belakang

Yakinlah dengan janjiNya

***

Mengapa kukatakan ini semua padamu??

Kerana masa depan Islam tercinta ini

Tergalas di atas bahu aku dan kamu!

..::can stress cause weight gain?beware!! ::..


By Anisa Abeytia

Integrative Health Specialist- Dubai



You hear it all the time, "don't eat that or you'll get fat" or "if you don't exercise, you're going to gain weight." The foods we eat or lack of exercise are most commonly associated with gaining weight. You would be hard pressed to find someone saying, "You better calm down or you're never going to lose all that weight." But the truth is that stress can and does make you fat.

The model of weight gain that most people are familiar with has to do with consuming too many calories. This model is still relevant for us when we talk about stress, but stress adds a twist to this. When we are under stress, especially prolonged stress (physical, emotional or environmental) our body's chemistry is changed. This change leads to unhealthy cravings for sweet and salty foods.

Why Salty and Sweet?

Modern humans have come up with new and unique ways of stressing themselves out. In the past, major stressors consisted of events such as food shortage, illness, pregnancy/child rearing, physical work, exposure to the elements and war. These events typically were not everyday experiences and our response was straightforward. Also, these events ended and we had time to recover. This is in addition to the fact that people in the past were very physically active.

Today we have traffic, cell phones, deadlines, noise pollution, picking the children up from school, degenerative diseases, loneliness, depression, war without end and each other to stress over. Physically we are not adapted to deal with all of this daily stress. Add to that, the fact that many people today are physically inactive and have poor diets and this is nothing less than a recipe for an expanding waistline.

Instead of reducing stressors, using stress reducing techniques or changing our response to stress (reframing), the tendency is to keep going and to self medicate using food. But why food?

The adrenal glands are responsible for our ability to adapt and cope with stress, but when we over burden them, they want a pick me up. Salt feeds the adrenal glands and sugar whips them (as does caffeine). These foods are the whip and the adrenal glands are the horse. This will keep a person going for a while, but these food cravings and the body's own chemistry will not only cause weight gain, but it can also cause all types of health issues as well.

Adrenaline, Cortisol and Serotonin

Adrenaline does not last long in the body and we quickly feel the "crash" after a "rush". This is when the food cravings set in.
Many times most of the stress we are experiencing is self-inflicted. Either we are doing too much or our response to stress is unhealthy. There is only so much one can do in one day, but many people have become addicted to that "rush" they feel when they are very busy. This "rush" is caused by adrenaline or epinephrine produced by the adrenal glands in response to stress and is intended to give us the energy to fight or run away (fight or flight).

Along with the production of adrenaline, the body will also produce cortisol. Slow acting cortisol can cause the most trouble. Adrenaline does not last long in the body and we quickly feel the "crash" after a "rush". This is when the food cravings set in.

The over abundance of cortisol can cause havoc on our blood sugar levels and can even contribute to causing diabetes. Also, the longer this process goes on, the harder it will be for the body to recover from this "rush" and "crash" cycle.

The other player in this scenario is serotonin. This neuro-transmitter works in the brain to keep our mood elevated. A common side effect of low serotonin is depression. Serotonin also helps us cope with stress, but can easily become depleted when we are under prolonged stress.

We need to replenish our supplies of serotonin from our diet, so if our diet is low in serotonin abundant foods and high in stress, sugar is a substitute, although a poor and short lived one. A lack of serotonin can cause food cravings. There are also people that do not produce enough serotonin.

What Can You Do?Stress Obesity

- Eat before you are hungry

You can accomplish this by snacking on healthy foods. It is difficult to curb cravings when you are hungry. Once you reach the level of hunger, you are more likely to grab the easiest thing than the right type of food.

- Snack on healthy foods

A good snack contains a protein, a fat and a complex carbohydrate (whole grain). It can be cheese and crackers, celery and nut butter (almond, peanut, or cashew), or a bowl of yogurt with fruit and nuts. Have an afternoon and a morning snack.

- Eat foods rich in tryptophan (converts to serotonin)

Tryptophan is an amino acid (found in protein foods). To boost your levels, eat protein rich foods like chicken, turkey, nuts, cheeses and beans.

- Eat at regular times

Just like us, our bodies do better on a regular schedule. Have your breakfast within an hour of waking up. Have your lunch between 12-1 p.m. and dinner before 6 p.m.

- Drink Water

Stress is a dehydrating experience. Most people under stress also drink large amounts of coffee, tea and soda, all of which are diuretics and add to the body’s need for more water.

- Choose whole grains

Whole Grains help regulate the blood sugar, keep us full longer and provide us with long lasting fuel for our brain and body. They also contain high amounts of the B vitamins that are quickly depleted in times of stress. The B vitamins help us cope with stress better.

- Do not bring sweets into the house

If you don’t have them, you can’t eat them-problem solved. If you find yourself making special trips to the store to satisfy your sweet tooth, then you know you have a problem with sugar.

- Sleep and rest

During times of stress, your body needs time to rest and recover. Stress can drain you physically, mentally and emotionally. Depending on the individual, the amount of sleep and rest required will vary.

- Exercise

Exercise does not necessarily mean a physically strenuous activity. Over doing exercise is also a stressor. You be the judge on what type of exercise you find enjoyable and you can also consult with a physical trainer.
