Assalaamu Aleykum Warahmatulallah Wabarakatuhu

(May peace be upon you and Allah's Mercy and Allah's Blessings)

The main purpose for starting this blog is to please Allah swt by making use of what I have learned so far and bringing it to some benefit for the people, especially to our Ummah (muslim society). Yes, indeed this is a time of the Islamic awakening, and there is a big need to provide the Muslims with halal (permissible) alternatives. But just as much it is also important to bring knowledge so that we would be able to choose the right alternative when presented to it. 

First of all, this blog will not be based on the consumptive values. Islam rejects extravagance and wastefulness. Moderation is always advocated. So this blog is not going to join the craze of the "organic industry". I have always found that concept kind of ridiculous. Go 200 or 300 years back in our history, and all things on this earth were the so called organic goods. It is only in the recent century with the oil explosion and mass production that chemicals have been taken into use and food and other goods began to be made synthetically and artificially. Allah warns us in the Quran that the shaytan will tempt us to change the creation of Allah:

"[Shaitan had said] And I will mislead them, and I will arouse in them [sinful] desires, and I will command them so they will slit the ears of cattle, and I will command them so they will change the creation of Allah. And whoever takes Satan as an ally instead of Allah has certainly sustained a clear loss. [An-Nisa (The Women) 4:119]"

And this is exactly what had happened. The most scary thought right now is that even the genes of the natural products such as vegetation have been manipulated and modified. 

Insha Allah, the next step which I will focus on in this blog, will be to bring awareness of what we eat. I have already provided you with some spiritual resources, which I hope you have started reading. Please continue to do so to create a nice base before we move onto the physical aspects. 

Here is an excerpt from a hadith:

"...Beware, in the body there is a piece of flesh; if it is sound, the whole body is sound and if it is corrupt the whole body is corrupt, and hearken it is the heart." (Muslim)

So lets take care of our hearts insha Allah til the next post!

Narrated Abu Huraira: The Prophet said "If a house fly falls in the drink of anyone of you, he should dip it (in the drink), for one of its wings has a disease and the other has the cure for the disease."  (Book #54, Hadith #537)

This hadith (narration) has had an astonishing benefit even for the treatment of AIDS! Flies are being used to produce the strongest antibiotics ever by the Buyer company, some of them reaching 500$ per course.

Assalaamu Aleykum Warahmatulallah Wabarakatuhu 

(May peace be upon you, and Allah's Mercy and Allah's Blessings) 

Welcome to the blog "The Natural Muslim". Insha Allah (by Allah's Will) here you will find useful tips and information on how to keep yourselves beautiful in a way which pleases Allah swt. This blog is not only for muslims, but for non- and future muslims as well :) Here I will post the natural ways of how to care for your body and health, as well as the Islamic view on the contemporary issues regarding this.

Muslims are not supposed to use something which is harmful to either body or their soul. This is hard to avoid today where most cosmetics do have some side effects as they use chemicals with still un known long term effects. I guess this issue is not relevant to Muslims alone, but rather to the whole humanity. I hope to introduce various natural products and ways to care for our body and hygiene as I myself realized that I just cant continue putting all those chemicals into my system any longer.

So please feel free to share your ideas and knowledge with me, and Insha Allah (by Allah's Will) we will all benefit from that!

To beautify your eyes, lower your gaze towards strange men, this will make your eyes pure and shiny.

To have attractive lips, always remember to speak the truth.

As for blush and rouge, "Modesty" (Haya') is one of the best brands and it can be found in any of the Islamic centers.

To remove impurities from your face and body, use a soap called "Istighfaar". Insha'Allah this soap will remove any bad deeds.(Ameen)

Now about your hair, if any of you has a problem of hair split>ends, then I suggest "Islamic Hijaab" which will protect your hair from damage.

As for jewelery, beautify your hands with humbleness and let your hands be a power to forgive people who hurt your feelings. 

And the necklace should be a sign to pardon you fellow brothers and sisters.
