A recent scientific study confirms that having lights on when going to bed impacts the biological processes inside the brain and causes disorders that lead to obesity. Consequently, scientists recommend turning lights off at night to protect the body and brain.

Glory to Allah; this advice, recommended by scientists in the 21st century, was long stated by Prophet Mohammad, may the peace and blessings of Allah be

upon him, 14 centuries ago. A sound chain of transmission reported: Prophet Mohammad, PBUH, said: "when you go to bed, put the lamps off." The question is: isn’t this hadith sufficient evidence that Prophet Mohammad, PBUH, speaks nothing but the truth?

How about small night lights? I have a couple in my bedroom because I often have to get up several times a night to use the bathroom. AND I have a night light in the bathroom so I don't have to turn on the full light.

Any light that is lighting your way back to the kitchen after bedtime can lead to obesity.

The Qur'an implies multiple times the earth is flat.
It also states all animals live in groups.
Both are wrong.

Question: Is there evidence in the Holy Qur’an and traditions regarding the Earth being spherical?

Answer: Of the indications present in Qur’an regarding these mysteries is that the Earth is spherical. And this can be surmised from the following verses:

(1) And We made the people who were deemed weak to inherit the eastern lands and the western ones which We had blessed; and the good word of your Lord was fulfilled in the children of Israel because they bore up (sufferings) patiently…1

(2) The Lord of the heavens and the earth and what is between them, and Lord of the easts.2

(3) But nay! I swear by the Lord of the Easts and the Wests that We are certainly able to bring instead (others) better than them, and We shall not be overcome.3

Its explanation is this that, as indicated in the last discussion, this verse argues about Easts and Wests, and number of points of rising and setting of the sun, for which the earth should necessarily be spherical, because it is a universally admitted fact that if the earth had been flat there would have been only one East and one West. And only because the earth is round and inclined that every point of the earth can have a particular East and a separate West.

And the sun rising on a certain point from different points of the earth, just as sometimes it is necessary that it set on other part of the earth; therefore the Easts and Wests being many is clear proof of the earth being spherical.
Traditions regarding the earth being spherical

From the traditions that have come to us through the sinless Imams (a.s.) we can understand that the earth is spherical. One of such tradition from Imam as-Sadiq (a.s.) is given below:
Imam as-Sadiq (a.s.) said:

In a journey, a man became a fellow traveler. He was habituated that he should pray the Evening Prayer in the darkness of the night, and pray the Morning Prayer in the complete darkness of the night (end of night).

But I was opposite to him. I used to pray the Evening Prayer when the sun set and perform the Morning Prayer at dawn break. He requested me to also pray in his manner and explained his act in this way: The sun before rising on our land rises on other places. And when it disappears from our land then too it shines on other places.

I told him: It is our practice that when the Sun disappears from our horizon, the Evening Prayer is prayed, and it is not necessary that we should wait for it to set in other places. And when the dawn breaks, we should pray the Morning Prayer, though the Sun may not have come out in other places. Because it is incumbent upon the people of all the places that they should offer their Prayers according to dawn and sunset of their horizons.4

Imam (a.s.) has described this fact in one more tradition:
It is upon you that you should have the foundation of your deeds on your logical East and West.
And all this is said on the basis of the earth being spherical.

Question 36: The Earth Being Spherical And The Holy Qur’an
Dr Zakir Naik - Does the Gross Scientific Errors in the Bible Shape of the Earth & it's Rotation?
The Earth's geoid shape - Exposing Dr Zakir Naik (Oxford university)
\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\


‘And there is no creature on [or within] the Earth or bird that flies with its wings except [that they are] communities like you. We have not neglected in the Register a thing. Then unto their Lord they will be gathered.” (Quran 6:38)

In this sixth surat (chapter) titled Al Anaam (The Cattle), Allah reminds humankind to regard animals and birds as “communities” that are similar to that of man. t’s a reminder to respect them as we would our own communities. They can have close-knit family units, they have needs and wants, their own language and traditions, and will, like all living things, return to the Almighty in the end.

Prophet Mohammad, PBUH, said: “purity is half of faith,” reported by Imam Muslim.

Scientists also assert that cleanliness help prevent almost most diseases. When the body remains clean and pure, it gets rid of most of the germs and dust that get stuck with. Such purity prevents several diseases such as skin and mouth diseases.


Moreover, constant cleanliness of the face and the hands entails the decrease of the number of germs that attack the body through the mouth and nose. Hence, the diseases of the respiratory and digestive system are also reduced.

Purity (in body, mind, and heart) is half of faith

Retracted physical light (like at night) opens up that pineal gland (Hindus call third eye) giving you more intuitive inspired thought through the secretion of Serotonin/ Melatonin.
An ability to see things others can't, a clarity, a vision, a connectivity.
Solomon hinted at this in the Song of Songs as being "The Night Dew".
Rabbis say "Dew" = the symbolic of the gift of this intuitive insight.

In theQuran Allaah informs us that He revealed a number of books, including the pagesof Prophet Abraham (Ibraaheem may Allaah exalt his mention), the Psalms ofProphet David (Daawood may Allaah exalt his mention), the Torah of ProphetMoses (Moosaa may Allaah exalt his mention), the Injeel (Gospel) of ProphetJesus (‘Eesaa may Allaah exalt his mention), and finally, the Quran of ProphetMuhammad sallallaahu `alayhi wa sallam ( may Allaah exalt his mention).



Ofthese revealed texts only the Quran remains intact in its original form. All ofthe others (as complete books) have been lost, their remains have survived onlyas fragments or tampered with in some way so as to make their authenticitydoubtful. Nowhere in the Quran is the Bible even mentioned, to say nothing ofits being among the revealed texts of Allah, or as Christian claim “The Word ofGod.”Further, we know from respectedscholars that although some fragments of the Psalms, the Torah, and the Injeel(the teachings of Prophet Jesus) may be found in the Bible, comprised of theOld and New Testaments, the Bible cannot rightfully be called “The Word ofGod.”Why is this so?





As onepublisher (Tyndale House Publishers, Inc., Wheaton, Illinois)stated: “The Bible may look like one book, but it is actually sixty-six booksin one. Thirty-nine books make up what we call the Old Testament, andtwenty-seven make up the New Testament. It is possible that more than fortywriters were used by God to write all sixty-six books.” (Quoted from the “HolyBible” – New Living Translation, Gift & Award Edition, l997, p. vii)

So ifthe Bible is neither narrated by God nor written by Him, and, as such, is not‘the word of God,’ then what is it?Byany objective criteria, the Bible is a book containing a compilation ofstories, legends, folk tales, folk lore, myths, sagas, narratives,





poetry,fragments of scriptures (fragments from the Psalms, the Torah, and the Injeelas already mentioned), letters (esp. in New Testament), visions, dreams,accounts of events from doubtful sources (not eye witnesses), editors’ orscribes’ notes, as well as human errors.

Forthose who believe in it, it is a book that has historical, cultural, moral andethical values, and a source of spiritual teaching and guidance. It is a bookheld in high esteem, primarily by Christians who see it as a divine book andthe source of their religious beliefs.But, in the final analysis it is only a book with many limitations andimperfections which disqualify it from being called “The Word of God.”Whoever makes such a claim then the burden ofproof rests with him. On the contrary, the Glorious





Quranis the Speech of Allaah and, through the Angel Gabriel, was revealed to ProphetMuhammad sallallaahu `alayhi wa sallam ( may Allaah exalt his mention ); latercompiled into a book more than 14 centuries ago it remains preserved in itsoriginal form until today.

Somecommon misunderstandings about the Bible include the following:



The Bible is one book, the Old Testament. The Bible contains sixty-sixbooks (or more depending upon the denomination one belongs to).

The Old Testament (OT) is the Torah followed by the Jews. The OTcontains some fragments of the Torah which was lost and the Psalms, but theTalmud is the book followed by the Jews and is totally unrelated to the Bible.





The New Testament (NT) is the Gospel of Prophet Jesus, or the Injeel. Itis neither. It is made up of twenty-seven books, none of which was narrated orwritten by Prophet Jesus although the NT may contain fragments of the Injeel(sayings and teachings of Prophet Jesus). The Injeel as revealed throughProphet Jesus has been lost. The fragments which may be cited in the NT may notbe authentic or in their proper context. So it is erroneous to equate the NTwith the Injeel mentioned in the Quran.





The Bible is a holy book, narrated, dictated by Godand is infallible. While this is a claim, this misconception has already beenaddressed. Since the Bible is ‘only’ a book, there is no need to call it aforgery, a corrupted text, etc. The Quran is the only authentic “Word of God,”His Speech, and Allah has promised to protect it from distortion of any kinduntil the Day of Judgment and He has kept His promise. Not one letter orsyllable has been changed over the past l4 centuries

You have a lot of misconceptions about the Bible. The entire Bible, all 66 books were written to, for and about a people called Israel in the Bible.

The first five books of the Bible were written by Moses who had direct contact with God and his descendants authored the other Old Testament books. It is essentially a family book, not one that professes to be about the whole world.

In the New Testament, you have a continuation of those same people, the Israelites, as they come into contact with other people. All of the New Testament books were written by people that knew Jesus Christ. And, BTW, it is not a "Jewish" book. The word "Jew" is of recent origin. It is translated three different ways in the Bible: by race, by religion, and by geography (i.e. someone from the land of Judah.) Israelites are a different people.

The way to tell if the Bible is, indeed, the inspired Word of God to the Israelites is to apply the history, the promises and see if they fit a given people. I found that they did. And, once you understand what the book is about, it is irrefutable and undeniable.

This topic is peanuts.

The prophet was just talking about SAFETY and SAVING ENERGY

1)- In those years of the prophet, people used candles and other oil lamps with live fire.

Then, in those says, when you were asleep, in many occasions you moved your body or part of it from one side to another, and unintentionally you caused the lamp to fall and fire to spread all over and you know the rest.

2)- What benefit brings having candles On at night? None. Just wasting your source of light for the next night.

Perhaps outside in the forest you need live light made with fire to protect yourself of wild animals coming close to you or your tent. And you must sleep exposed to the light of that fire.

On the other hand, those poor imbecile scientists can't understand REALITY.

I'm very "humble" when taking credit that my knowledge is way over the poor understanding of others about reality. They don't know what they are talking about.

The whole species who sleep outside without cover like a cave, all of those would be fat according to those scientists.

Those dudes are telling you that for about two weeks in a month, if you live outside in the forest, you will get fat if you don't turn the Moon light Off... Lol.

For truly I tell you, until heaven and earth disappear, not the smallest letter, not the least stroke of a pen, will by any means disappear from the Law until everything is accomplished.
5:18
The Prophet Jesus, peace be upon him, was sent by God to the Jews

The Prophet Jesus peace be upon him,

came to complete the law of the ancient prophets

Without decrease or increase




Why such variance in viewpoints? To begin with, different theological camps disagree on which books should be included in the Bible. One camp’s apocrypha is another’s scripture. Secondly, even among those books that have been canonized, the many variant source texts lack uniformity. This lack of uniformity is so ubiquitous that The Interpreter’s Dictionary of the Bible states, “It is safe to say that there is not one sentence in the NT in which the MS [manuscript] tradition is wholly uniform.”[2]


Not one sentence? We can’t trust a single sentence of the Bible? Hard to believe.

Maybe


The fact is that there are over 5700 Greek manuscripts of all or part of the New Testament.[3] Furthermore, “no two of these manuscripts are exactly alike in all their particulars…. And some of these differences are significant.”[4] Factor in roughly ten thousand manuscripts of the Latin Vulgate, add the many other ancient variants (i.e., Syriac, Coptic, Armenian, Georgian, Ethiopic, Nubian, Gothic, Slavonic), and what do we have?

A lot of manuscripts


A lot of manuscripts that fail to correspond in places and not infrequently contradict one another. Scholars estimate the number of manuscript variants in the hundreds of thousands, some estimating as high as 400,000.[5] In Bart D. Ehrman’s now famous words, “Possibly it is easiest to put the matter in comparative terms: there are more differences in our manuscripts than there are words in the New Testament.”[6]

How did this happen?


Poor record keeping. Dishonesty. Incompetence. Doctrinal prejudice. Take your pick.


None of the original manuscripts have survived from the early Christian period.[7]/[8] The most ancient complete manuscripts (Vatican MS. No. 1209 and the Sinaitic Syriac Codex) date from the fourth century, three hundred years after Jesus’ ministry. But the originals? Lost. And the copies of the originals? Also lost. Our most ancient manuscripts, in other words, are copies of the copies of the copies of nobody-knows-just-how-many copies of the originals.

No wonder they differ


In the best of hands, copying errors would be no surprise. However, New Testament manuscripts were not in the best of hands. During the period of Christian origins, scribes were untrained, unreliable, incompetent, and in some cases illiterate.[9] Those who were visually impaired could have made errors with look-alike letters and words, while those who were hearing-impaired may have erred in recording scripture as it was read aloud. Frequently scribes were overworked, and hence inclined to the errors that accompany fatigue.


In the words of Metzger and Ehrman, “Since most, if not all, of them [the scribes] would have been amateurs in the art of copying, a relatively large number of mistakes no doubt crept into their texts as they reproduced them.”[10] Worse yet, some scribes allowed doctrinal prejudice to influence their transmission of scripture.[11] As Ehrman states, “The scribes who copied the texts changed them.”[12] More specifically, “The number of deliberate alterations made in the interest of doctrine is difficult to assess.”[13] And even more specifically, “In the technical parlance of textual criticism—which I retain for its significant ironies—these scribes ‘corrupted’ their texts for theological reasons.”[14]


Errors were introduced in the form of additions, deletions, substitutions and modifications, most commonly of words or lines, but occasionally of entire verses.[15] [16] In fact, “numerous changes and accretions came into the text,”[17] with the result that “all known witnesses of the New Testament are to a greater or lesser extent mixed texts, and even several of the earliest manuscripts are not free from egregious errors.”[18]


In Misquoting Jesus, Ehrman presents persuasive evidence that the story of the woman taken in adultery (John 7:53-8:12) and the last twelve verses of Mark were not in the original gospels, but added by later scribes.[19] Furthermore, these examples “represent just two out of thousands of places in which the manuscripts of the New Testament came to be changed by scribes.”[20]


In fact, entire books of the Bible were forged.[21] This doesn’t mean their content is necessarily wrong, but it certainly doesn’t mean it’s right. So which books were forged? Ephesians, Colossians, 2 Thessalonians, 1 and 2 Timothy, Titus, 1 and 2 Peter, and Jude—a whopping nine of the twenty-seven New Testament books and epistles—are to one degree or another suspect.[22]

Forged books? In the Bible?


Why are we not surprised? After all, even the gospel authors are unknown. In fact, they’re anonymous.[23] Biblical scholars rarely, if ever, ascribe gospel authorship to Matthew, Mark, Luke, or John. As Ehrman tells us, “Most scholars today have abandoned these identifications, and recognize that the books were written by otherwise unknown but relatively well-educated Greek-speaking (and writing) Christians during the second half of the first century.”[24] Graham Stanton affirms, “The gospels, unlike most Graeco-Roman writings, are anonymous. The familiar headings which give the name of an author (‘The Gospel according to …’) were not part of the original manuscripts, for they were added only early in the second century.”[25]


So what, if anything, did Jesus’ disciples have to do with authoring the gospels? Little or nothing, so far as we know. But we have no reason to believe they authored any of the books of the Bible. To begin with, let us remember Mark was a secretary to Peter, and Luke a companion to Paul. The verses of Luke 6:14-16 and Matthew 10:2-4 catalogue the twelve disciples, and although these lists differ over two names, Mark and Luke don’t make either list. So only Matthew and John were true disciples. But all the same, modern scholars pretty much disqualify them as authors anyway.

Why?


Good question. John being the more famous of the two, why should we disqualify him from having authored the Gospel of “John”?

Umm … because he was dead?


Multiple sources acknowledge there is no evidence, other than questionable testimonies of second century authors, to suggest that the disciple John was the author of the Gospel of “John.”[26] [27] Perhaps the most convincing refutation is that the disciple John is believed to have died in or around 98 CE.[28] However, the Gospel of John was written circa 110 CE.[29] So whoever Luke (Paul’s companion), Mark (Peter’s secretary), and John (the unknown, but certainly not the long-dead one) were, we have no reason to believe any of the gospels were authored by Jesus’ disciples

Sleep is important for many reasons. Your body produces hormones while you sleep that help your body grow, build muscle, fight illnesses, and repair damage. Not getting enough sleep can affect your mood, health, weight, and ability to carry out day-to-day activities.

Your body’s natural daily cycles are called circadian rhythms. They respond primarily to light and darkness. Sleeping at night and being awake during the day is an example of a light-related circadian rhythm.

A “master clock” in the brain helps coordinate your body’s natural rhythms. When there’s less light, your brain makes more of a hormone called melatonin, which makes you tired. Studies in animals suggest that being exposed to light at night may affect melatonin, leading to changes in circadian rhythms and weight gain from altered eating patterns.

People are exposed to light at night in many different ways, including from television, mobile devices, streetlights, and other sources of light. To investigate whether this light is linked with weight gain in people, a team led by Dr. Dale Sandler at NIH’s National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS) used data from over 43,000 women, aged 35–74 years, who were enrolled in a national study called the Sister Study. Results were published online on June 10, 2019, in JAMA Internal Medicine.

The women were asked whether they slept with no light, a small nightlight, light outside of the room, or a light or television on in the room. The researchers collected a variety of other information at the start of the study and after a follow-up period of an average of 5.7 years. This included the women’s weight, height, waist and hip circumference, and body mass index measurements at the start and information on weight at follow-up.

The researchers found that women who slept with a light or television on were more likely to be obese at the start of the study. They were also 17% more likely to have gained around 11 pounds or more over the follow-up period. The association with light coming from outside the room was more modest. Using a small nightlight wasn’t associated with any more weight gain than sleeping with no light.

“Although poor sleep by itself was associated with obesity and weight gain, it did not explain the associations between exposure to artificial light while sleeping and weight,” Sandler notes.

The authors couldn’t rule out all the other factors that might be linked with artificial light at night and weight gain. However, their findings didn’t significantly change when they adjusted for age, having an older spouse or children in the home, race, socioeconomic status, where they lived, calories consumed, nighttime snacking, physical activity, and sleep length and quality.

A person born Christian or Jewish

What will God do with him?

Above all, we know that Allah is good and loves kindness in all things; He is the most gracious, the most merciful,

of a vast mercy which is greater than his anger and revenge, as it is said in the hadith of Abu Hurayrah (peace be upon him) according to which the Prophet (peace be upon him) ) said: “Allah wrote a decree before creating the universe (saying); My mercy prevails over My anger, and it is written with Him above the Throne. »Reported by al-Bukhaari (7554).


A distinction is made between one who imitated his ancestors even if he knows the truth, and one who imitated his ancestors and had no way of knowing the truth.


Both categories exist,

1-therefore he who knew the truth and turned away from it is negligent and has no excuse before Allah.



2-Those who wanted advice and sought it but could not find it because there was no one to guide them. They are the same decision as those who lived in the intervals between the prophets and those whom the calling did not reach.


As for those who were unable to ask and learn, and had no way of knowing the truth,


Allah will judge between his slaves on the day of the resurrection by his wisdom and his righteousness, and he will not punish anyone except those against whom proof is established by means of the messengers. This matter is clear and final.


those whom the call of Islam has not reached and against whom no evidence has been established through the Messengers, they will be tested on the Day of Resurrection. A messenger will be sent to them there, and those who obey him will enter heaven and those who disobey him will enter hell,





Beware of neglecting this principle even for a moment, so beware of discussing the divine decree before understanding it. You must understand that the divine decree is like the sun; when you believe in it and You won't give up on that

, based on the Qur'an and Sunnah, aYour mind will feel comfortable, like one who walks in the light of day


. God will test his creation as he pleases


God who created you and created the universe for you


And you don't thank God!


You must use your mind to choose the right religion

And you're alive before it's too late

Many people have embraced Islam

missionaries, celebrities and footballers

They studied and learned everything about Islam

May allah guide you to the right path

Sleep is important for many reasons. Your body produces hormones while you sleep that help your body grow, build muscle, fight illnesses, and repair damage. Not getting enough sleep can affect your mood, health, weight, and ability to carry out day-to-day activities.

Your body’s natural daily cycles are called circadian rhythms. They respond primarily to light and darkness. Sleeping at night and being awake during the day is an example of a light-related circadian rhythm.

A “master clock” in the brain helps coordinate your body’s natural rhythms. When there’s less light, your brain makes more of a hormone called melatonin, which makes you tired. Studies in animals suggest that being exposed to light at night may affect melatonin, leading to changes in circadian rhythms and weight gain from altered eating patterns.

People are exposed to light at night in many different ways, including from television, mobile devices, streetlights, and other sources of light. To investigate whether this light is linked with weight gain in people, a team led by Dr. Dale Sandler at NIH’s National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS) used data from over 43,000 women, aged 35–74 years, who were enrolled in a national study called the Sister Study. Results were published online on June 10, 2019, in JAMA Internal Medicine.

The women were asked whether they slept with no light, a small nightlight, light outside of the room, or a light or television on in the room. The researchers collected a variety of other information at the start of the study and after a follow-up period of an average of 5.7 years. This included the women’s weight, height, waist and hip circumference, and body mass index measurements at the start and information on weight at follow-up.

The researchers found that women who slept with a light or television on were more likely to be obese at the start of the study. They were also 17% more likely to have gained around 11 pounds or more over the follow-up period. The association with light coming from outside the room was more modest. Using a small nightlight wasn’t associated with any more weight gain than sleeping with no light.

“Although poor sleep by itself was associated with obesity and weight gain, it did not explain the associations between exposure to artificial light while sleeping and weight,” Sandler notes.

The authors couldn’t rule out all the other factors that might be linked with artificial light at night and weight gain. However, their findings didn’t significantly change when they adjusted for age, having an older spouse or children in the home, race, socioeconomic status, where they lived, calories consumed, nighttime snacking, physical activity, and sleep length and quality.
That study is invalid until you reverse the factors. Put the women who slept with light at this time without light for another 6 years, and verify if the results agree with the expectation of losing and gaining weight according to the former results.

If you want to task about science, then whatever you do you must verify it as many times as possible.

A recent scientific study confirms that having lights on when going to bed impacts the biological processes inside the brain and causes disorders that lead to obesity. Consequently, scientists recommend turning lights off at night to protect the body and brain.

Glory to Allah; this advice, recommended by scientists in the 21st century, was long stated by Prophet Mohammad, may the peace and blessings of Allah be

upon him, 14 centuries ago. A sound chain of transmission reported: Prophet Mohammad, PBUH, said: "when you go to bed, put the lamps off." The question is: isn’t this hadith sufficient evidence that Prophet Mohammad, PBUH, speaks nothing but the truth?

How about small night lights? I have a couple in my bedroom because I often have to get up several times a night to use the bathroom. AND I have a night light in the bathroom so I don't have to turn on the full light.
Turn it off. Darkness is required apparently.

The Prohibition of Urinating in Water:
One of the Prophetic purification methods is the prohibition of urinating in water. It has been proven that human urine contains a number of germs and bacteria that are transmitted form one person to another through water. Urinating in water, particularly stagnant water, causes the spread of many epidemics such as cholera, typhoid, and polio just as it’s the case in public swimming pools. Therefore, Prophet Mohammad, PBUH, forbade it so as to guarantee us, in Allah’s will, a happy, disease free life.

One of the Prophetic purification methods is washing hands as soon as waking up in order to remove the germs and remnants of sweat that get stuck to them while sleeping. Today, scientists emphasize the significance of washing hands in order to prevent diseases. Such emphasis clarifies the importance of the following hadith: “when you get up from bed, don’t put your hand in a bowel (of food or drink) before washing it three times,” reported by al-Bukhari and Muslim. One might wonder: who could have revealed the significance of washing hands to Prophet Mohammad?
Cleanliness:

One of the purification methods is performing Istinja (cleaning the private parts) after the call of nature as well as cleaning the place of urinating well. A great medical benefit of following such a good habit has been proven for the good removal of impurities (Najasaat) prevents several diseases of the reproductive system. This was confirmed by Prophet Mohammad, PBUH, when he instructed us to perform Istinja and purify ourselves. Within the Islamic context, believers must have a bath at least once a week, every Friday, so as to clean the skin surface from dirt, bacteria, germs, fungi, and the remnants of sweat thus preventing skin diseases, enhancing its breathing, and maintaining its pores. Once again, one wonders who could have informed Prophet Mohammad, PBUH, about the significance of cleanliness for the prevention of diseases. (Istinja means the removal of dirt that is left on the body after the call of nature: such as urine or faeces)
