Why Overeating Is Baleful?

Overeating refers to eating in surplus quantity, it is the core of lots of diseases such as obesity in later life. Not only this but it also causes us pain and issues in sleeping. It can also be termed as an addiction because many people really get addicted to overeating all of the time. Even if their stomach is not in the state to consume more!

Religion (Islam) and Overeating:

Religion (Islam) has always taught us the best thing to choose. Here again, Holly Prophet Muhammad (P.B.U.H) taught us the right path. The Prophet (P.B.U.H) said: 
‘I eat as the servant eats, and I sit as the servant sits. Verily, I am only a servant.’
This shows that Islam teaches us to maintain a proper diet which is healthy in all means. The prophet never filled his entire stomach with food. He always ate less. Being from an influential tribe he could get excess to the most extravagant dishes but he never ate one. He always thought about others and rather than overeating passed it on. The Prophet at timed remained hungry and also taught his followers that filling your entire stomach together during a single meal is not a good thing.
Science has also been researching the overeating issues and proves that overeating is baleful. Many of us must have noticed that those who eat all the time are most of the time inert and unwilling to do something. They keep sitting idly all the time.

The disadvantages of overeating and the reason why overeating is baleful?

* It causes harm to our heart and is one of the reasons behind heart pain.
*Overeating leads to cause of obesity.
* It makes you lazy and your nervous system gets slower.
* Overeating also causes our digestive system to suffer because our digestive system needs rest too! It can not keep on going to digest the food we put in again and again! Just think if you are a cricketer and your coach asks you to keep on batting the entire day and night. What will you go through?
* To become someone smart, elegant and gorgeous dear ladies and gents it is important to cut down food. Those who overeat and keep questioning why don’t they get slim and smart, the answer is overeating is baleful. It makes you obese!

Overeating causes memory loss too. Wondering why? 

Because your brain starts getting slow too when all your body does is consume and digest food!

Reasons behind overeating:

* The main reason is stress. Whoever is under stress finds eating an easy solution. They eat as much as they can to forget the problems they are facing!
* Another reason is overthinking. It is linked to stress. People overthink a lot nowadays! This again proves overeating is baleful
* We all live in a world where self-esteem is important. People with crashed confidence think that their life has ended and end up distressed and start eating!
* Emotional problems and mood swings. Everyone breaks up with someone or ever gone through problems like not feeling like to talk to anyone. We have no one to talk to and so we go towards food because the food is best-friend. The more we eat the more we feel better. We do not understand the fact that overeating is baleful!
* Lastly, food is a route to joy too. While watching movies or playing games, food is a way to party. With friends, we eat so much that we do not keep a track of how much we are giving to our stomach. In parties, also, various dishes lead us to taste all and so in only tasting we eat a huge amount of everything.
Food now actually is considered a solution to every problem. Whatsoever people find food to feel free and better. When they eat, they start overeating and end up badly!

How to get rid of the overeating issue?

* The best thing you can do is find other ways to get joy. You can further deflect your mind. Keep yourself busy in other games.
* Eat food slowly. Take smaller bites and chew properly.
* If you are the cook make a smaller amount of foods; food that is enough for your stomach.
* Fill more of your stomach with water or juices, so that you do not run towards food.
This proves that overeating is baleful. It also gives you the proper way of how to take food and what to do to avoid overeating. Thus, we must take care of our diet and be careful of what and how much we eat.

Did Noah’s flood happen? (Kashaan Mahmood)

We have all heard the story. The story is found across many cultures such as the epics of Gilgamesh, the Hindu puranic story of Manu, in Greek mythology as well as in the Bible (Not to mention Islam). For a story to be found across so many cultures and faiths, it seems logical for the story to be true right? Some would disagree.
Some would ask how can we analyze this and reach a concluding argument whether it be in the favor of this story or against it? Well, thankfully we don't have to.

Black Sea Deluge Hypothesis
The Black Sea Deluge Hypothesis was put forth by Geologists Walter Pitmann, Bill Ryan and their colleagues. Their proposition was that a catastrophic amount of seawater had flown in from the Mediterranean sea into the Black Sea.

This sudden catastrophic event leads to a Great flood which was 200 times the flow of water falling from Niagra Falls, daily. Over 155,00 kmof land was flooded. The research suggests that the flood lasted for at least 300 days. Now a question springs to mind, how did this catastrophic flood come about?
 I will try to put it in simple words for everyone to understand. It came about at the end of the last ice age. Ice ages were the periods in earth’s geological history when global temperatures fell and ice sheets in the Northern and Southern hemispheres expanded. Seas and oceans freeze during the ice age and according to science, there have been at least five ice ages until modern times.
At the end of last ice age, the glaciers were melting and the vast amount of glacial water was flowing into seas such as the Mediterranean sea. The sea was so swelled up with water that it eventually overflowed into neighboring black sea.

According to the Holy Quran (Surah Hud Ayat # 44), Noah’s ark landed on Mount Judi. The interesting thing to note is that Mount Judi is situated in Turkey and Turkey is right next to the Black Sea, the sea in which the catastrophic flood came.

MOTHER OF ALL DISEASE - OBESITY (Dr. Hijab)

A human being has a few basic requirements to survive on this planet. Those most basic requirements include clean air to breathe in, water and food. With the evolution of the man, their needs for survival has also modified for shelter, food, and clothes to wear. Out of all of them, the most important without which anybody can't even imagine staying alive is food and nutrition. Eating healthy is a sign of having a better life. Nutrition is part and parcel of our life. A balanced diet includes some basic nutrients like proteins, carbohydrates, fats and vitamins for the proper functioning of body processes, and maintaining the health and keeping us active for performing daily life activities like playing, walking, running, reading, etc. Eating is important for life but overeating and under eating both can bring with eating many lethal and dangerous problems.


OBESITY

Obesity is the medical condition in which the person becomes extremely heavy, fat and stout. The person having such an increased body mass may become more prone to much more other lethal diseases so as the name “MOTHER OF ALL DISEASES”. 
  Doctors use criteria for measuring the appropriate weight according to age, sex, and medical status called a body mass index(BMI). An obese person can have their BMI increased up to 30 while normal is 18.5-24.9.

CAUSES OF OBESITY

The most common and understandable cause for obesity is overeating and minimal physical activity . Having slack and stagnant lifestyle often changes many normal people into obese. Other causes may be ;

Genetic familial

Obesity often runs in families as it has the genetic component. 40 % of obesity is due to genetic causes.



Environmental

60% of obesity is due to environmental causes.



Sedentary lifestyle

Less physical activity often makes a person obese. Today's world provides more latest appliances that lessen manual work.



Certain Medications
 Insulin for diabetes, antidepressants, antipsychotics, steroid hormones, opioids, and antihypertensives often have side effects of weight gain. 

Stress
The stress hormone cortisol is released in stress that increases the cravings for more food leading to more calories intake ultimately weight gain

Junk food
Junk food usually has an excessive and abnormal amount of fat and sugars in it which get accumulated in our body leading to weight gain.

Leptin resistance
Leptin is an obesity-related hormone released from fat cells and it sends signals to the hypothalamus in the brain to regulate the eating patterns and alter food intake. It is directly related to body weight more is leptin is secreted if a man puts on weight. In leptin resistance, a person is unable to feel satiety and the control is lost.
Cultural
Culture includes your family, marital status, economic status, society you live in, age, gender, occupation, and education level which have different effects on eating habits and the type of food eaten.

 The food having a high content of cholesterol and fats can prove poison for obese or overweight people. Cholesterol level-up to 100-129 mg/dL is acceptable but above this can be alarming especially in patients with cardiac diseases.

COMPLICATIONS OF OBESITY

Excess body weight firstly makes the person inactive and lethargic, the person rarely can do any physical work. Moreover, many other health risks are associated with it which may include;
  1. Respiratory disorders, like sleep apnoea, asthma. chronic obstructive pulmonary disease COPD
  2. Joint diseases as arthritis, osteoarthritis,
  3. Hypertension
  4. Stroke
  5. Cardiac diseases (acute coronary heart disease)
  6. Cancers of the breast, colon, gall bladder, endometrium, kidney)
  7. Liver problems and gallstones
  8. High level of LDL (low-density lipids) and VLDL (very low-density lipids) cholesterol and low levels of high-density lipids (HDL)
  9. Sexual abnormalities I.e infertility, abnormal menstruation.
  10. Dysregulated immune system (increases susceptibility to different infectious agents)
  11. Gastrointestinal abnormalities e.g gastroesophageal reflux disease.

PSYCHOLOGICAL PROBLEMS

Besides medical conditions, a person becomes depressed, discriminated, emotionally disturbed because of his body shape. They face lowered self-esteem, society abandons them, usually find difficulty in finding jobs, and the quality of life is also compromised.

TREATMENT AND PREVENTION

 Weight managing programs should be joined, a person should take part in daily life works, physical activities should be increased, the diet should be controlled and altered to eating less and healthy. Exercise is the easiest and rapid way to lose weight. A person should attempt surgical intervention only when all try to lose weight, fail. As a preventive measure, we should make habit of eating a healthy balanced diet, less calorie intake and being active so as to avoid obesity and its related health risks.

Economic crisis of Pakistan!

Pakistan Economy:

Pakistan, ever since its independence, has largely been an agrarian economy, surviving on primary products, which form a major part of its export. In a historical sense, ever since its inception in 1947, Pakistan has produced a reasonable economic performance over the seventy years of its existence, despite ups and downs and especially considering the fact that the country has been involved in three major wars with its neighbor India, in 1965, in 1971 and in 1999. Political, social and religious tensions have played a key role in the country’s economic performance, largely in a negative context. In 1947, agriculture accounted for 53% of the total GDP and today it counts for 21% of the total GDP, showing that, despite the recent changes to transition towards a technologically-inclined industrial economy, Pakistan still very much remains an agrarian economy.

Economic History:

If we were to look at the history of Pakistan;’s economic performance, the uncertainty of the 1950s gave way to perhaps the most successful economic phase in Pakistan’s history, as General Ayub Khan initiated the Green Revolution, which led to a decade of economic prosperity, with three times more than India at that time. However, this came at a price since most of this development was limited to the province of Punjab, Pakistan’s breadbasket and urban Sindh, with Karachi serving as the capital city back then.

Mass nationalization schemes and liberal economic policies were major themes during the 1970s under the Bhutto regime. This, coupled with key political events such as the separation of East Pakistan, as well as the launch of Pakistan’s nuclear program under the auspices of Dr. Abdul Qadeer Khan, dealt the Pakistani economy a major blow. Global events such as the 1973 OPEC oil price shocks also added to Pakistan’s economic struggles.

Extensive US aid to Pakistan, under Zia n the 1980s, saw a rise in economic and industrial growth. Overnight, Pakistan was thrust into the global spotlight of the Cold War as the USA’s most allied ally t combat the Soviets in Afghanistan. This meant that the USA was willing to go to extensive lengths to boost the Pakistani economy.

The “musical chairs” period of the 1990s, when a number of political transitions, as well as a power struggle between Nawaz Sharif and Benazir Bhutto, saw economics being neglected and taking a back seat.

The Musharraf era saw a few areas become important to economic policy. These included exchange rate management of the rupee against the dollar, usually maintained artificially. The baking sector underwent a mass makeover, affecting interest rates while capital goods became a priority. Pakistani per capita income rose to $1000 by 2007 due to increased foreign remittances.

The Zardari years began right during the 2008 global recession, leading to an economic struggle. This, coupled with key political events such as the Bin Laden killing in 2011 and the Raymond Davis case, harmed Pakistan by damaging its international reputation. The economy suffered as exports dried up.

The Nawaz Sharif government saw policies and practices in favor of elite industrialists and businessmen, with a strong focus on infrastructure development such as roads and bridges, also concentrated in Punjab, leaving the economy heavily detached from the rest of the provinces.

Pakistan Economy Current Status:

In the current scenario, Pakistan’s economy continues to struggle under the PTI government, with the massive devaluation of the rupee. This has led to desperate steps such as the $6bn bailout package by Saudi Arabia, under Muhammad bin Salman. However, CPEC remains a beacon of hope for long-term economic prosperity.

JAHEZ KHORI BAND KARO (STOP TAKING DOWRY) ISLAM AND DAWRY


JAHEZ KHORI BAND KARO.

(STOP TAKING DOWRY)


When we talk about dowry, it’s a shameful act usually done by greedy people, who don’t want a daughter but also every possible luxury from the girl’s family. In our society, the concept of dowry is so strong that the family who can’t afford to give is compelled not to marry their daughters in great families.
Dowry is an overburdening curse that has inundated our general public. The horrendous custom has appeared as coercion, reluctantly acknowledged and satisfied by the bride’s family to offer a dowry. Parents accumulate a sizeable measure of property, cash and material assets in their mission to satisfy their obligation. The time has come for this well-established custom that has picked up support in our general public be found.

Notwithstanding the Prophet's (PBUH) endeavors to lift ladies to the point where they, similar to men, gained lawful and social rights, in South Asia the introduction of a little girl remains something to grieve or, best case scenario, to endure with constancy.
Among different purposes behind the low esteem given to little girls is the inclination that she won't have the capacity to contribute anything to the family, and will just put a weight on funds on account of the deep-rooted custom of the endowment, which will be given to her at the season of her marriage.
In past decades it was so common to bury a girl when she is still breathing, but by emerging of Islam this is now limited to very illiterate population, but although the burden of dowry is still the same.
When a daughter is born, parents got happy as there is a pour of blessings in their home, but they also start getting worried about their girls’ future, their income, if they can afford the dowry which led them to depression.
Daughters are blessings don’t make the burden.
In undeniable reality, the custom of giving dowry has never been legitimated by Islam and isn't generally spread in Muslims of another ethnicity. It gives off an impression of being the replication of past Hindu custom in which girls have no offer in the property of family yet were given consumptions that could be as families. Despite what might be expected the little girl in Islam has a full right in their family property and legacy.

Prior to Islam, this idea was considered as the property of a young lady's caretaker. The idea of showing lady blessings of money or property or spending a great deal on amazing wedding feast, or displaying a house, or giving furniture for their home and family unit assets are missing to the circumspection of the general population associated with Islam. On the off chance that we take the case of Prophet (PBUH) he has additionally observed the relational unions of his four little girls. At the point when Hazrat Fatima got hitched to Hazrat Ali b Abu Talib, Hazrat Muhammad gave her different blessings however there is no proof of offering endowments to any of his different girls on the season of their relational unions. In the event that giving endowments would be polished in Islam he would have offered these to them also and the blessings he has given to his little girl Fatima were extremely unassuming family unit things which incorporate a bed sheet, a cowhide water pack and a cushion which was loaded down with grass and fiber.

Giving dowry is a ridiculous practice which ought to be precluded. Being Muslim we ought not to rehearse it and should quit offering dowry to our girl as opposed to that we should give their privilege in our family properties which is generally not drilled by the greater part of us.
Such training contains a lot of underhandedness and damage to the general public; this training may notwithstanding achieve society's end soon. There is an incredible contrast between the situation where the lady feels that she and what she has have a place with her husband and where she feels that she is something wanted and regarded, as the life partner burns through cash on her and gives her presents, etc to get her as his better half.

One lamentable part of endowment giving lately is that it is winding up increasingly more merely conspicuousness. Nothing could be more un-Islamic in inspiration than this. Indeed, even the act of playing out a marriage unobtrusively, with no showy presentation of riches, yet in this way giving a luxurious dowry to groom’s family to set up house is in opposition to Islamic practice.


The trend calls jahez khori band kro is started in Pakistan for awareness among the general population to criticize the act of taking dowry from the bride’s family.
Following the trend, Pakistani celebrities have held hands against the way of life of dowry in the nation by posting pictures composed 'Jahez Khori Band Karo' staring them in the face.
Stars and celebrities have willingly volunteered stand firm against this hapless practice wild in our general public spreading mindfulness about this unnecessary hazard ruining the lives of millions.

#Stopjahezkhori is a trend that has shaken up the web begetting another term Jahezkhori to express their disappointment by dowry.
