Jalsa Salana

Jalsa Salana

As an advocate of ongoing learning, I have and continue to, attend a number of national and international conferences. These conferences have ranged from professional to personal development as well as spiritual. As a result, I can say without the slightest hesitation that, for me, the most educational, uplifting, enlightening and fulfilling conference of them […]

Dealing With Lower Back Pain

Dealing With Lower Back Pain

Since graduating as an Osteopath in 1992 I have treated thousands of patients. Many have presented with the common issue of lower back pain (LBP). Osteopathy is a manual form of treatment founded in the late 19th Century by Dr Andrew Taylor Still. 1 It is increasingly becoming the choice of treatment for all types […]

Afterlife: is there life after death?

Afterlife: is there life after death?

One of the most enduring topics of conversation is whether or not there is life after death. For many of us reading this blog, as we move on in our lives and especially in times of difficulty when our lives are in jeopardy, this thought will arise. As a Muslim, we were taught from a young […]

Family in Modern Society

Family in Modern Society

One of the most striking features of Muslim society is the importance that is given to family life. With changing cultural norms and the development of new personal priorities, I question whether there is still room left for family in modern society. Is the concept of a traditional family unit as relevant today as compared […]

The Role of the Father in Islam

The Role of the Father in Islam

My father was a Giant…OK not literally… He was, however, 6f oot 2 inches tall, broad, muscular with huge hands and feet. So, as a child, for all intents and purposes, he was a giant. With this enormous frame came a quiet, intelligent, introspective, hardworking and humorous man to name a few of his many […]

Change: What’s it all about?

Change: What’s it all about?

Change as a topic is extensive and emotive. In this blog, we will briefly explore a few points.   Is change optional?   Why do so many people struggle with making changes?   How can we learn to embrace change?   There are many definitions of the word change. Most pertinent for our discussion are:  “to […]

Genetic Scissors—Snap with caution!

Genetic Scissors—Snap with caution!

Grocery list  Cereal   Onions  Butter   Cheese  Bread  Tomatoes for controlling blood pressure.   What do you find weird about this grocery list? Since when do we add the nutritional benefits of items in the grocery list? Hold on! It’s not to encourage you to eat your five a day but “Tomatoes for controlling blood pressure” is a special type of gene-edited tomatoes that has recently been licensed for […]

Forgiveness

Forgiveness

It is safe to say that we have all been there, on both sides of the coin: asking for forgiveness and/or being forgiven. But in situations where one finds themselves having to do both the asking and forgiving is somewhat of a double harvest in the long run. Such was the case last year during the last 10 days […]

Happiness

Happiness

As I begin to write this blog, the rather quirky ‘70s/80s comedian Ken Dodd springs to mind. His TV shows would often feature his very catchy song: “Happiness, happiness, the greatest gift that I possess I thank the Lord that I’ve been blessed With more than my share of happiness…..” 1 The rest of his […]

Role of Faith in Social integrations

Role of Faith in Social Integrations

As a Pakistani Ahmadi Muslim based in South London, the topic at hand is quite personal and close to my heart. To be honest, nine years ago when I moved to London, I did not give it much thought but when my first-born started school, it proved to be a penny drop moment for me and brought me to certain realisations. I grappled with a variety of questions.  Will integration come natural to my British, Pakistani son?   Would he be […]
