solat and science

alhamdulillah(praise to Allah),for a very long time i wish to write a post about what i'd read during my leisure time in darul quran(DQ). hahaha....yup,i really really really really happy. ok2,lets start it now.

The book cover is black, wrapped in plastic(only buyers able to read it if you find it in a bookstore). What i wanted to share with you is about the content that makes me really appreciate my time during solat. And that makes me more confident,comfortable and finds that solat is my special treat to myself. before that,lets review some of the quotation that i quoted from the authors:
Kajian dibahagikan kepada beberapa bahagian, iaitu saya(wan abu bakar) mengkaji aktiviti otot, Siew Chok(see! a non muslim profesionalist also admit the uniqueness of solat!) mengkaji isyarat otak, iaitu apa yang berlaku kepada gelombang otak ketika solat. Dr Fatimah mengkaji komposisi tubuh,katanya.

Beliau berkata, hasil kajian mendapati bahawa ada banyak perkara positif apabila seseorang melakukan solat dan ini dimuatkan dalam buku `Solat: Kebaikan Dari Perspektif Sains terbitan Jabatan Kejuruteraan Biomedikal. Buku ini mempunyai dua versi, bahasa Melayu dan Inggeris.
If u read the book,you will find that there are several vital thing that we should know in order to makes us realize that solat is good for us and there is no doubt it is a fardiyyah(compulsory) for a person who say the syahadah(=a muslim and mukmin)
  1. Do you know that the most relaxing posture for our heart is during sujud(a position where head is down to the floor as same level as the feet). They found out that the heartbeat (count in bpm-beats per minute) shows the lowest reading when we do the sujud. (Ini maksud nyer bile sujud, sedikit 'pumping work' di buat oleh jantung untuk mgalirkan darah ke arteri2 otak kerana otak berada di bawah paras jantung dan di'tolong' oleh tarikan graviti. Oleh itu, tidak hairan lah lebih lama sujud lagi baik utk badan.)
and for those who think then it's the same if we just lay down on the bed instead of sujud. But then they also studied about that position but yet, the results showed it isn't the same. This is because the position of the head is the same level with the heart.
Love your heart and sujud for longer time!!!

2. (Adeh,pnjg plak post nie.) The second thing that is important is that they found the solat is the most focusing activity one it is done. When the solat is just finish, that person will be really careful of what is coming next(or what will happen next). This is because they just done an activity that really need their attention(or called khusyuk) . Here are some quotation that i can browse it for you:
Ng Siew Chok-Isyarat Otak :
Beliau berkata perubahan kimia berlaku apabila otak aktif. Proses kimia yang menyebabkan pergerakan ion atau atom yang membawa cas elektrik boleh diukur menggunakan elektrod yang diletakkan di pada kulit kepala. Sejenis alat iaitu EEG (electroencephalography) digunakan untuk mengukur isyarat otak daripada aktiviti elektrik.'Gelombang otak mempunyai beberapa frekuensi irama yang dipengaruhi oleh keadaan fizikal dan emosi. Jenis gelombang otak Alfa (8-13 Hz) menunjukkan keadaan tenang', katanya. Walaupun bukan Islam, Siew Chok kagum terhadap hasil kajian yang dilakukannya apabila mendapati keadaan dan pemikiran orang selepas bersolat tenang dan menyamai keadaan selepas bangun tidur.

I wish I have the gall to write more about the benefit of solat that i knew from what I read in this book but, I'm quite sleepy right now. Here are some of the contains that might attract your interest to konw more and discover the beauty of solat yourself.

-Kajian solat ke atas komposisi badan
-Faedah mengamalkan tabiat lazim sempurna atau sebaliknya ke atas komposisi badan semasa solat
-Kebaikan solat Tarawih dan puasa terhadap komposisi badan
-Kajian denyutan jantung
-Kajian kesan pergerakan solat ke atas wanita yang mengalami sakit pinggang
-Kajian Elektroensefalogram dalam solat
-Kajian perubahan isyarat otak semasa Tomakninah
-Kajian kesan solat ke atas disfungsi ereksi (Erectile Dysfunction)
(sgt bagus utk lelaki2 mcm saya..hahha-don't comment =p)

Last but not least, i dedicated this post to all muslim regardless of race, and that is why i try to explain it in english.Thank you for your time.

btol la apa yg uncle ckp.
tp,jln nk mencapai khusyuk bkn senang.

klu ade umat dl bleh solat lg walaupun ank panah dh tembus bdn,kite ni br kena gigit nyamuk,dh sumpah seranah dlm ati.

tp,snarnya apa yg kite harapkan drpd Allah melalui solat adlh redhanya,kebaikan2 yg laen akn dtg menyusul.

btul2...tpi utk dakwah ttg Islam kite kpd non-muslim tidak boleh trus jump to wut is islam...or how to khusyuk..

instead,we shud show how unique islam is until they realize it's a true religion from their Creator.

using science is a good way too!
