    A fundamental characteristic of the Islamic calendar is that it marks the establishment of the Islamic era. The importance of the Islamic calendar was inculcated in the Prophet’s SAW companions, who strongly adhered to the order and number of months, and would implement it in a more formal manner after the passing of the Prophet SAW.

THE 99 NAMES OF ALLAH (Asmaa ul Husnaa)

The Prophet Muhammad (Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam) has said: "Allah has ninety-nine names, i.e. one-hundred minus one, and whoever knows them will go to Paradise." (Sahih Bukhari 50:894)

Abu Huraira RA reported Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam) as saying: "There are ninety-nine names of Allah; he who commits them to memory would get into Paradise. Verily, Allah is Odd (He is one, and it is an odd number) and He loves odd numbers.." (Sahih Muslim Book-48 Hadith-5)

I was talking to a physician and after knowing my occupation he advised:

"You must exercise more and preferably walk to work. Don't buy drinks from stalls or drink coffee at the malls. Stay away from spicy restaurants especially. Drink more plain water. Don't drive when going out. Take public transport in case of long distances. Eat less meat, especially beef and avoid prawns and seafood. Keep to vegetarian diet if possible."

I nodded and asked: "May I know what's wrong with me?"

He answered: "your salary is too low!"
