How to deal with anxiety and psychological disorders in islam?

I'm not sure what U: Mean. Are you questioning if your religion approves of psychological interventions? If so, you would need to speak with a Imam. If you are in an Islamic country and looking for treatment, I would google and search for a competent psychologist &/or psychiatrist and schedule an appointment. Let me know if I misunderstood your question and need more information from me. ...Read more

Islam says masturbation a sin but I really need to takeout this sexual stress out! Does it really makes me a loser? Ah' m born sinner

Islam says masturbation a sin but I really need to takeout this sexual stress out! Does it really makes me a loser? Ah' m born sinner

What you are asking: Is a religious ; spiritual question. Not so much a medical one. It is clear that you feel anguish ; are conflicted over this matter. I do not see you as a loser. However, with that said being a physician does not give me the right nor the knowledge base to judge you within the context of your religion or your spiritual beliefs. Take care. ...Read more

Muslim suffer from of in Islam urine and semen dirty if touched while object is wet the object became dirty lived where I had semen urine on cloth to?

Don't understand: I'm not sure what exactly you are asking. Could you please rephrase your question so I can better understand? What I understand is this: Muslims are not supposed to touch wet urine or semen for religious reasons, maybe considered "unclean". You lived where these bodily fluids were on cloth? Isn't there a purification ritual in Islam in case you accidently touch the wrong thing? ...Read more

Is it ok in islam to receive surgery such as a breast reduction or breast lift?

Is it ok in islam to receive surgery such as a breast reduction or breast lift?

Ask your Imam.: This question is best answered by an imam or other practitioner of islam. Doctors do operations for medical/cosmetic indications. Ultimately, it depends on the patient's depth of faith and the depth of the patient's family's faith.
There are catholics that have abortions and jehovah's witnesses that accept blood transfusions. The person you have to really ask is yourself. ...Read more

I'm muslim and I do "puasa" for month. I don't eat/drink anything more than 12 hours. So what foods are better to bring good condition for me?

Fasting: If you are generally healthy fasting from sunrise to sunset will not harm you. If you have an illness you are not required to fast.
Great foods are high in protein with balanced carbohydrates, and moderate or minimal fats.
Recommendations: salmon, peanut butter,
tofu, green leafy vegetables, tomatoes, potatoes (in moderation), flax seed oil, olive oil, hard boiled eggs (2 per day). Water. ...Read more

I am a muslim with a colostomy and find it difficult to be clean for prayers. What do you recommend?

I am a muslim with a colostomy and find it difficult to be clean for prayers. What do you recommend?

Rubber gloves: The issue of clean and unclean in muslim culture is one of social convention as it is not stated in the koran. But the social conventions are strong - left hand for cleaning, right hand for greeting, etc. One way to help with this is to purchase rubber gloves and use them when dealing with the colostomy (a good idea anyway) and then you will be clean underneath. ...Read more

I am muslim girl and my bf is hindu. My family is not going to except him. But we love each other and want to get marry. What should I do?

Make a long list: Plenty of people marry outside of the cultural group they were born and raised in, but there are always more problems to deal with, due to contrasting beliefs and practices. One activity that helps is for each person to individually write down all the good things and all the not-so-good things about marrying into the other culture. Then, meet together to write ideas for each item on the two lists. ...Read more

How can I thicken my hair? Note: I wear scarf on my head because I'm a muslim :)?

Unclear question: Is your hair abnormally thin? Why do want to thicken your hair? There is no specific treatment to thicken hair. Make sure that your nutrition is adequate for general skin and hair health. Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, low fat milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco in any form and do not take any more than one drink on a given day. ...Read more

I'm a muslim and I keep fasts in ramadhan, I want to know that how can I reduce my thirst feeling in hot days, is there any vitamin to take for this.

I'm a muslim and I keep fasts in ramadhan, I want to know that how can I reduce my thirst feeling in hot days, is there any vitamin to take for this.

No: Thirst is a natural response to need for liquid -- water being the best. Often you are dehydrated before thirst kicks in. There is not a vitamin that eliminates this vital response. Physiology matters! You could "camel up" by drinking extra water before fasting begins each day, and hope that this will sustain you until your evening meal. ...Read more

When bowing down, I feel sudden chest pain. It felt like my heart was hitting my ribs. I'm a muslim, so when it happens when I pray.

When bowing down, I feel sudden chest pain. It felt like my heart was hitting my ribs. I'm a muslim, so when it happens when I pray.

Muscular: When pain is provoked by a change in position, it's generally due to the tug of gravity against inflamed structures: muscles, ribs, costochondral junctions. An anti-inflammatory such as ibuprofen or naproxen should provide some relief. Take with food and in a dose that is adequate to do the job. Massage and heat can also help. Good luck. ...Read more

I am 25 years muslim girl. I know abt externl part of vagina and also know how it is important 4 us 2 remain virgin b4 marriage. Want to know abt hymen?

A normal body part: The hymen is the soft tissue that runs along the edge of the opening of the vagina. Hymens come in all shapes and sizes, and should be of no importance to a normal, health woman in this century. Women may be judged by their happiness, their friendliness, their compassion, and many other wonderful traits, but never by the condition of their hymens. ...Read more

I'm Muslim and I fast for Ramadan. I'm taking antibiotics for a gum infection. Am I able to fast while taking antibiotics?

A Matter of Faith: It can be challenging to make choices for health that raise a conflict w/ faith. Only your soul knows best. But, many devout I've known offer advice that exemption from religious rigor for medical reason is given. Depending on Rx directions, try to find a way to fit all doses (as well-spaced as possible) into allowable times. Or you might extend your fast days to after your Tx. Health is a gift! ...Read more

Need more work up: Ecp works best if used right after unprotected sex as it works only if taken with in 3 days of unprotected sex. And still is not a 100 % effective method.
If your preg test (-), and you are having no periods Next step is Beta hcg level to r/o pregnancy. If that is negative then you can see gyn for missed periods (without fear of pregnancy) as you may need more workup ...Read more
