SORT BY Relevancy
The month of Ramadan, the 9th month of the muslim calendar is the month the Holy Qur'an was reveal to Prophet Muhammad through the Angle Jabril,1435 years ago. Revealed as Revelation from G-d, The Lord; Creator of mankind, for the guidance of mankind.
To receive the guidance of G-d's word, once must learn to restraint their desires (Nafs) The three development of the human soul.
The soul prone to or having a tendency to sin, the soul that is conscience of G-d, and the soul that has become free for G-d.
Holy Qur'an, Surah (Chapter) 2:
183. O ye who believe! Fasting is prescribed to you as it was prescribed to those before you, that ye may (learn) self-restraint,-
185. Ramadhan is the (month) in which was sent down the Qur'an, as a guide to mankind, also clear (Signs) for guidance and judgment (Between right and wrong). So every one of you who is present (at his home) during that month should spend it in fasting, but if any one is ill, or on a journey, the prescribed period (Should be made up) by days later. Allah intends every facility for you; He does not want to put to difficulties. (He wants you) to complete the prescribed period, and to glorify Him in that He has guided you; and perchance ye shall be grateful.
"Fasting is prescribed for you as it was prescribed for those before you, that you may attain taqwaa (reverence and awe of your Lord)." (Holy Qur'an 2:183)
“Whenever you fast, do not look dismal, like the hypocrites, for they disfigure their faces so as to show others that they are fasting” (Matthew 6:16).
We want to this Saturday, on Critical Discourse, discuss and enact, the process of fasting.
Fasting means many things to many people. For Muslims, it is a pillar of Al-Islam, especially during the month of Ramadan. We read in the Bible, where Jesus (Peace by Upon Him) fasted for 40 days.
However one sees it, fasting provides that opportunity for the abstain from usual habits, and in the process, enter into a more reflective and humbled mood. It provides an opportunity to cleans oneself, spiritually, physically and morally, as we hopefully become more mindful of our environment, and get a chance to "recharge" of sorts.
It the position of thie writer, that from whatever religion, philosophy or ideology one comes from, fasting is of great benefit, and should be a regular practice. We can get into the finer details, but for sure, on Critical Discourse, we want to spread the idea of our selecting one day a week, to fast / abstain.
This writer is certain, that particularly amongst our people, such a practice and discipline will yield positive and transformative results, in ways we could never imagine, so we ask that not only do you listen in, but share with Critical Discourse, your thoughts, ideas and past fasting experience, and how this proposal could be of great help to us.

Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is a puzzle. While the number of people diagnosed with ADHD is on the rise, there is still debate about whether ADHD is a real disorder, and debate about whether people, children especially, with ADHD should be prescribed medication to treat their symptoms. Despite the debates, there does seem to be a link between the symptoms of ADHD and mass-produced foods with lots of sodium, sugar, chemicals, and other additives.
Dr. Rachel V. Gow is a neuroscientist whose expertise is ADHD, and particularly the impact of food, diet, and nutrition on the development and treatment of ADHD. She'll help us sort through the puzzle that is ADHD and talk about the importance of nutrition for children with ADHD and for all of us.
