The recent suicide of popular actor Robin Williams, reportedly due to depression has once again shone the spotlight on an undiagnosed malady in our own community. Considering that depression can affect men differently than it does women, and considering that male depression often goes undiagnosed and can have devastating consequences (like suicide) when it goes untreated, a few coping mechanisms were discussed on this morning’s drive-time edition of Sabahul Muslim with Moulana Sulaimaan Ravat.

Men, more commonly than women are likely to feel angry, irritable, and frustrated rather than sad when depressed. Instead of withdrawing from the world, or sharing their problems with a friend, or lashing out, men may act recklessly or develop a compulsive interest in work or a new hobby. Instead of crying, men may engage in violent behaviour. read more

A woman left with the intention of travelling approximately 92 kilometres. However, the first half of the journey passed while she was in her Haid. She will not be considered a Musafir. She will have to have a bath and offer the full four Rakaats. However, if she became pure from her Haid and there is still a distance of 77 kilometres or more to cover, or, when she left home she was pure and got her Haid in the course of the journey, then she will be a Musafir and will have to offer her Salaat as a Musafir.

A fisherman from the city was out fishing on a lake in a small boat. He noticed another man in a small boat open his tackle box and take out a mirror. Being curious the man rowed over and asked, "What is the mirror for?"

"That's my secret way to catch fish," said the other man. "Shine the mirror on the top of the water. The fish notice the spot of sun on the water above and they swim to the surface. Then I just reach down and net them and pull them into the boat."

"Wow! Does that really work?"
"You bet it does."
"Would you be interested in selling that mirror? I'll give you $30 for it."
"Well, okay."

After the money was transferred, the city fisherman asked, "By the way, how many fish have you caught this week?"

"You're the sixth," he said.
