Many of us have heard about acupressure and acupuncture and have seen the Chinese practice this very ancient art of healing. I have not read much and do not know much about acupressure or acupuncture and nor anything I write here is authentic.

Its just out of curiosity and the craving to learn something new led me into this topic and its been since many years that i have know it to be useful. As always google is your best friend to find the zillions of pages written on any topic since ages, though most might just be rubbish. Here is a good site that explains a lot on this subject: http://www.mothernature.com/library/bookshelf/books/46/3.cfm

Al-Dai al-Fatimi, Syedna Mohammed Burhanuddin donates to "Dubai Cares"

DUBAI — Sultan Al Bohra Mohammed Burhanudeen, spiritual leader of the Bohra Muslim community, has donated Dh2.1 million to Dubai Cares. The cheque was presented to Shaikh Ahmad bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum by his Dubai representative Kinana M. Jamaluddin here yesterday.

Commenting on Dubai s tradition of philanthropy and its role in the current campaign, Jamaluddin said Dubai illustrates the true essence of Islam, underlining its teachings about helping those in need. “His Highness Shaikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, has made the Muslim and Arab nations proud through his initiative which demonstrates the values and principles of Islam and proves to the world the noble nature of our faith,” he said.
