Forgiveness is one of the most distinguishing features of Ramadan. If we truly want Allah's love, mercy and forgiveness, we must remember that the pleasures in this world are transient, and we are working toward that which is permanent. Is it worth being bitter and stunting our growth? Will it really benefit us? Will our anger and bitterness change the person who has hurt us?

Let us use this Ramadan to open our hearts to those who have wronged us and forgive them as we beg Allah to forgive us..

Love a little more than what is necessary..
Work a little harder than what is required..
Be a little kinder than what is usual..
Give a little more than what u feel u can afford..
Stand in a prayer a little longer than what u intended..
Be a little more patient than what u feel u can handle..
It is that little extra effort sparked by sincerity in the heart
that makes your ordinary self extraordinary...

Remember the five simple rules to be happy:

1. Free your heart from hatred.
2. Free your mind from worries.
3. Live simply.
4. Give more.
5. Expect less.

TOKSIN, JAUHKAN dari bayi anda. WAJIB!

Bismillah ir-Rahman ir-Rahim

Adakah anda peka dengan sekeliling anda terutamanya bayi anda?

Ada sesetengah ibubapa tidak peka dan mengambil mudah terhadap tahap kesihatan dan kebersihan sekeliling bayi mereka.


Apakah toksin-toksin itu?

PVC (Polyvinyl Chloride
ini digunakan dalam permainan yang soft. Ambil masa periksa dan pastikan permainan yang lembut2 tu ada tak bahan PVC ni. Kalau membeli belah online, periksa betul2. Contoh antara yang guna PVC ialah
  • Soft plastic toys
  • Teething rings
  • Skin lotions

ini boleh dan kerap digunakan dalam senarai dibawah. Periksa setiap barang digunakan pada anak untuk mengelakkan terdapat toksin pesticides seperti nicotine, rotenone, pyrethrum and sabadilla (ini bukan senarai penuh, anda boleh google lagi).
  • Weed and pest killers
  • Pesticides on fruits and vegetables
  • Bug repellant

For children, mercury is known to cause problems with concentration and learning, and can invoke symptoms such as tremors, irritability, drowsiness, impaired memory and sleep disturbances.  In the worst of cases, babies develop visual and gait problems as well as mental retardation.

Mercury can be found in the following household items, so keep your children away from these products and remember to dispose of them properly.
  • thermometers
  • some athletic shoes
  • dental fillings
  • fluorescent lamps
  • batteries
  • some types of paints
  • small appliances

Lead is a type of heavy metal found in various items around your house including paint, batteries, pipes, gasoline, toys, some ceramics, and tap water. Your baby is most likely to be exposed to lead through swallowing paint dust and drinking tap water.

Be cautious and take the following precautions at home.
  • Flush out your water pipes (until the water is as cold as it can be) before using it for drinking.
  • Use cold water instead of hot water for cooking; hot water is more likely to contain higher levels of lead.
  • Inspect your pipes – lead pipes are dull gray but look shiny when you scratch them
  • Keep areas where your children play clean and free of dust. (Keep in mind that you cannot see, smell or taste lead.)
  • Wash toys often.
  • If the paint on your walls contain lead, wash them or cover them up with wallpaper.
  • Check product labels.
  • Test your home for lead (at-home tests are available). 

Solvents are liquids used to dissolve something else, many of which you use daily. Some solvents are not toxic when inhaled (like water), but most other solvents can cause depression of the central nervous system, skin irritation as well as some other permanent side effects to your child’s brain and heart. The following are common household solvents that release toxic fumes, so take care to keep them locked up and away from your children. 
  • Ethanol (alcohol)
  • Paint thinner
  • Furniture stripper
  • Dry-cleaning fluid
  • Degreaser
  • Turpentine
  • Acetone-based nail polish remover
  • Glue
  • Aerosol sprays
  • Shoe care products
  • Oil-based paints and more

Flame Retardants
Flame retardants were first introduced as a safety feature for children’s pajamas and home furniture. These chemicals prevent fire from spreading – however, there have been studies that indicate that they are particularly harmful during the critical period of brain development.

Arsenic is another known neurotoxin and although it can be found naturally in the earth’s crust, the most harmful type of arsenic is man-made and used to preserve wood. Chromate copper arsenate (CCA) change hormonal functions (even at low levels), and therefore largely impact the developing brain. Through contact with arsenic-treated wood (like a wooden playground set), high levels of arsenic is directly released to your child’s hands. In fact, arsenic leeches into the soil around and underneath the structure, so make sure your children do not put their hands near their mouth until they have washed their hands.
What should you do if you have existing arsenic-treated wood?
  • Test - there are at-home testing kits available to test for arsenic.
  • Seal - coat the object or structure with waterproof sealant (every two years).
  • Replace - if you believe that any structure or object still poses a threat to you and your child, it may be better to dispose of it or replace it with a safer alternative.

Cigarette Smoke
Second-hand smoke is perhaps one of the most common toxins that your child will encounter. It is responsible for countless lower respiratory tract infections in children under 18 months and has been known to aggravate symptoms in children with asthma. Aside from health effects, researchers have also found a link between tobacco smoke and intellectual and behavioral problems. Children who have had higher exposure to second-hand smoke showed reduced vocabulary and were even held back a grade in early education.
