Common Forum/Request/Suggestions / 20 Health Tips for Ramadan
« on: May 19, 2018, 02:03:16 PM »
20 practical health tips for Ramaḍān

1. Begin iftār with dates, providing you with an immediate source of energy. Rehydrate yourself with plenty water.
2. Isotonic drinks or natural juice drinks when breaking the fast are a good source of minerals, salts, and vitamins.
3. Resist the urge to feast as much as you can, as quickly as you can! Research has shown that even food-associated words appear much brighter to the hungry.[9] After a day of fasting and discipline, resist this instinct and illusion – aim to eat in moderation.
4. Avoid high-fat, high-sugar content, and highly-processed food (e.g. white wheat) – fried food, ghee, pakoras, biryanis, Indian sweets, halawas (and the list goes on..!). By iftār time, our bodies are working to preserve as much energy possible. Therefore, excessive fatty food and sugars will be rapidly added to body fat reserves.
5. Salty food at iftār and suhūr will cause dehydration and make you feel increasingly thirsty.
6. After Maghrib salāh, have a well-balanced meal containing all of the food groups mentioned in this article.
7. Meals with slow release carbohydrates will keep you well energised for a night of ʿibādah. Include sources of fibre, which will keep your bowels working and healthy after resting during the day.
8. Fibre and proteins keep you feeling full for longer – an important part of your meal plan.
9. Staying well hydrated and eating sources of fibre will help prevent constipation in Ramaḍān
Cereals, salads, fruit and vegetables are excellent replacements for oily curries and fried snacks.
10. Eat in moderation, a heavy stomach rarely agrees with a night of fruitful ʿibādah
11.The ḥadīth regarding the breath of the fasting person does not justify poor dental hygiene. Brushing, flossing before tarawīḥ is advised, for the sake of fellow worshippers too! Excessive sugary snacks and drinks are also harmful for teeth.
12. After iftār, stay well hydrated by taking regular sips of water every half hour, or a cup full or more every hour.
13. Physical exercise immediately after iftār may not be a good idea, as our blood flow is being directed to our digestive system at that time.
14. Please be mindful of the sugar content in caffeinated energy drinks. With tea and coffee, again moderation is key.
15. Take the strength and discipline developed during fasting to give up smoking this Ramaḍān. Smoking cessation services in the NHS can help you reach this goal.[10]
16. Do not skip suhūr An important sunnah and opportunity to nourish your body with a balanced diet containing complex carbohydrates, fibres, proteins, good fats we have discussed earlier.
17. Try to fit in adequate time for napping. Planning rest well will allow us to make the most of our time in Ramaḍān. Even sleep can be rewarded if intended to recuperate in preparation for more ʿibādah!
18. If you are taking any regular medication, have any health conditions, are pregnant or breastfeeding, it is very important to consult with your GP first before planning your fasts. Please make sure you encourage family members to do the same.
19. Our Deen excuses those who are unwell or ill from fasting. Please spend time learning the fiqh of fasting from a trusted local imām, and ask when faced with any questions.
20. We ask Allāh Jalla wa ‘Alā to accept our fasting and grant us the ability to maximise our time in Ramaḍān.

অবশেষে আগামী বছর থেকেই পাবলিক বিশ্ববিদ্যালয়ে সমন্বিত ভর্তি পরীক্ষা শুরু করতে যাচ্ছে সরকার। রাষ্ট্রপতি ও বিশ্ববিদ্যালয়ের চ্যান্সেলর মো. আবদুল হামিদ নিজেই এই উদ্যোগটি নিয়েছেন বলে জানিয়েছেন বিশ্ববিদ্যালয় মঞ্জুরি কমিশনের (ইউজিসি) চেয়ারম্যান আব্দুল মান্নান।

বাংলা ট্রিবিউনকে আব্দুল মান্নান বলেন, ‘রাষ্ট্রপতির নির্দেশেই বিশ্ববিদ্যালয়গুলোতে সমন্বিত ভর্তি পরীক্ষার বিষয়ে ব্যবস্থা গ্রহণে যথাযথ উদ্যোগ নিতে গত মঙ্গলবার শিক্ষা মন্ত্রণালয়কে চিঠি দেওয়া হয়েছে।’

উল্লেখ্য, প্রতি বছর লাখ লাখ শিক্ষার্থীকে বিশ্ববিদ্যালয়ে ভর্তি পরীক্ষা দেওয়ার জন্য ছুটে বেড়াতে হয় দেশের এপ্রান্ত থেকে ওপ্রান্তে। এতে শিক্ষার্থী ও অভিভাবকদের দুর্ভোগের শেষ থাকে না। ফলে শিক্ষা মন্ত্রণালয় ও ইউজিসি একই ক্যাটাগরির সব বিশ্ববিদ্যালয়ে মেডিক্যাল কলেজের মত সমন্বিত ভর্তি পরীক্ষা নেওয়ার আহ্বান করে আসছিল। তবে অভিযোগ রয়েছে, প্রথম থেকেই বড় বিশ্ববিদ্যালয়গুলোর এ বিষয়ে অনিহা দেখাচ্ছিল। এই অনিহার নেপথ্যে বিশ্ববিদ্যালয়গুলোর ‘ভর্তি ফরম বাণিজ্য’ রয়েছে বলেও অভিযোগ রয়েছে।
ইউজিসি চেয়ারম্যান অধ্যাপক আব্দুল মান্নান

শিক্ষার্থী ও অভিভাবকদের দুর্ভোগ ও বিশ্ববিদ্যালয়ের ভর্তি ফরম বাণিজ্যের বিষয়টি রাষ্ট্রপতি অনুধাবন করে গত ২ নভেম্বর ইউজিসি অ্যাওয়ার্ড অনুষ্ঠানে সমন্বিত ভর্তি পরীক্ষা নেওয়ার জন্য বিশ্ববিদ্যালয়ের উপাচার্যদেরকে আহ্বান করেন।

গত সোমবার (১৪ নভেম্বর) ইউসিজির চেয়ারম্যান অধ্যাপক আব্দুল মান্নানের নেতৃত্বে একটি প্রতিনিধি দল রাষ্ট্রপতির কাছে ইউজিসির বার্ষিক প্রতিবেদন-২০১৫ পেশ করেন। ওই প্রতিনিধি দল সূত্রে জানা গেছে, প্রতিনিধি দলের সঙ্গে আলাপচারিতায় উচ্চশিক্ষার মান নিশ্চিত করতে নানা বিষয়ে আলোচনার পাশাপাশি বিশ্ববিদ্যালয়ে সমন্বিত ভর্তি পরীক্ষা নেওয়ার বিষয়ে অভিপ্রায় ব্যক্ত করেন রাষ্ট্রপতি।

এ বিষয়ে অধ্যাপক আব্দুল মান্নান বৃহস্পতিবার সকালে বাংলা ট্রিবিউনকে বলেন, ‘বিশ্ববিদ্যালয়ে সমন্বিতভাবে ভর্তি পরীক্ষা নেওয়ার জন্য রাষ্ট্রপতি অভিপ্রায় ব্যক্ত করেছেন। তার অভিপ্রায় মানেই নির্দেশ। তিনি খুব তাড়াতাড়ি পাবলিক ও প্রাইভেট বিশ্ববিদ্যালয়গুলোর উপাচার্যদের সঙ্গে পৃথক দিনে এ বিষয় নিয়ে আলোচনায় বসবেন।’

তিনি বলেন, ‘ইতোমধ্যে কৃষি বিশ্ববিদ্যালয়গুলোর উপাচার্যরা এই পদ্ধতিতে পরীক্ষা নিতে একমত হয়েছেন। এরই ধারাবাহিকতায় ইউজিসি গত মঙ্গলবার (১৫ নভেম্বর) এ ব্যাপারে যথাযথ উদ্যোগ নিতে শিক্ষা মন্ত্রণালয়কে চিঠি দেওয়া হয়েছে।’
