Your Health: Diabetes - An informative program in URDU  

Diabetes is a hormone disorder that can cause problems with the kidneys, legs and feet, eyes, heart, nerves, and blood flow. If left untreated it can lead to kidney failure, amputation, blindness, or a stroke. Type 2 diabetes is typically found in adults and is largely caused by obesity, but teenagers and children are now being diagnosed with it.

If you're a South Asian between the ages of 25 and 75, the prevalence of diabetes is now about 20%. This is compared to about 4% in the whole community so… the risk of having diabetes is at least five times greater.

Ummah Channel is dedicating a speacial health programme Hamari Sehat (in Urdu) on Sunday 29th April at 2pm on Sky 828 (in the UK) on Diabetes.

Dr Wasim Hanif, from the South Asian Health Foundation and Heartlands Hospital, Birmingham  will discuss the condition and its impact on our community.

The programme is supported by Diabetes UK.

Your Health: A TV program on Ummah Channel for UK Visitors


Vitamin D helps the body absorb calcium and a deficiency can cause bone deformities in children and bone pain, tenderness and muscle weakness as a result of osteomalacia in adults. People get most of their vitamin D from the sun when the skin is exposed to summer sunlight. Most Asian people need more sun to produce as much vitamin D and so are at risk of not getting enough in the UK & Europe  to last through the winter months. Those who cover up for cultural reasons and younger women are also at risk. In addition to safe sun exposure, you can get more vitamin D from your food, especially during winter and in countries where there isn’t much sun. Good dietary sources of vitamin D include:

  • Oily fish such as sardines, kippers, salmon, pilchards and trout;
  • Meat and eggs contain a little vitamin D;
  • Margarine, milk, orange juice, yoghurts and some breakfast cereals often have vitamin D added by the manufacturer.


Ummah Channel is dedicating a special health programme Hamari Sehat (in Urdu) on Sunday 22nd April at 2pm on Sky Channel 828 (in the UK) on Vitamin D.

Annual Prize distribution Ceremony by PMET, Rander

"Read in the name of your Lord who created, created man from a clot. Read, for your Lord is most Generous, Who teaches by means of the pen, teaches man what he does not know." (96: 1-5).

These are the very first few verses of the Holy Qur'an. Education is a very integral part of Islamic teaching. Hadith of our beloved prophet Muhammed (SAW) explained on various occassions to gain knowledge, gain skills. There should not be any additional encouragment needed other than the word of our Nabi (SAW).

However, the sad fact is, our community is lagging so far behind when it comes to education. This is where organisations like PMET work with a mission to promote education within the Muslim community and empower the future generations with skills and degrees needed to comepete in the fast changing world. Look at the pictures of this Prize Dstribution Program in India. These students are from various backgrounds including male & females. It includes Doctors, Engineers, teachers and other white collar degrees. Fact is there are also females graduating with higher degree in Medicine, Education and other streams.

This work should be continue and we should support such organisations and start a few more. We are blessed and this is our opportunity to come forward to take an initiative, map will be unlocked. This is the work of charity and this is our teaching ... who knows ... this may become an excuse for our forgiveness. Ameen.

:Progressive Tankaria:

Remember that time, when after Fajr, we hear the voice of farmers guiding their animals going to their farms and in the evening after Asr prayer, we hear their voice again coming back (remember Goduli Bela - Cowdust time). Animals making those beautiful sound with the bell in their neck & those familiar voices, those riding behind someone's Gaadu and then get yelled at was so much fun.

Gone are those days but memory remains. However, Tankaria has progressed. Now, we do not go to farms that often but Farms have come to home. With Tankaria and nearby villages ever expanding, those farms are getting occupied by new construction but a smart way to keep our tradition of farming, is an example shown by Dilawar Bhai Dashu at his house near Adol village. It just does not include a beautiful, open house but also a farm with fruits and vegetables. May Allah (SWT) give barakah in it and make us all progress in Deen with Duniya. Ameen.
