DIABETES MELLITUS:

Diabetes mellitus (DM), also known as simply diabetes, is a group of metabolic diseases in which there are high blood levels over a prolonged period.

Diabetes is due to either the pancreas not producing enough insulin, or the cells of the body not responding properly to the insulin produced. There are three main types of diabetes mellitus:

  • Type 1 DM results from the body's failure to produce enough insulin. This form was previously referred to as "insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus" (IDDM) or "juvenile diabetes". The cause is unknown.
  • Type 2 DM begins with insulin resistance, a condition in which cells fail to respond to insulin properly. As the disease progresses a lack of insulin may also develop. This form was previously referred to as "non insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus" (NIDDM) or "adult-onset diabetes". The primary cause is excessive body weight and not enough exercise.
  • Gestational diabetes is the third main form and occurs when pregnant women without a previous history of diabetes develop a high blood glucose level. Gestational diabetes usually resolves after the birth of the baby.

The 12 days of Muharram are important days for reflection, contemplation and reformation, therefore it is imperative to remind ourselves of our fundamental duties to Allah (SWT), the religion of Islam and to mankind.
 
Imam Hussain (AS) mission was to reform the Muslim Ummah as manifested clearly in his Will before he left Makah for Iraq and to save Islam which was being trampled by Yazid bin Muawiyah the tyrannical self-imposed ruler of the Muslim world at the time –

Imam Hussain (A.S.) explains the mission of his sacrifice in his own words: “I have taken this stand not out of arrogance or pride, neither out of mischief or injustice. I have risen to seek reform in the community of my grandfather. I would like to bid good, forbid evil, and follow the tradition of my grandfather and my father ‘Ali bin Abi Talib.”
