How to talk to an unknown or Qalb diseased person:

1. Chapter (Sura) 33 Al-Ahzab, verse (Ayah) no. 32:

يَا نِسَاءَ النَّبِيِّ لَسْتُنَّ كَأَحَدٍ مِنَ النِّسَاءِ ۚ إِنِ اتَّقَيْتُنَّ فَلَا تَخْضَعْنَ بِالْقَوْلِ فَيَطْمَعَ الَّذِي فِي قَلْبِهِ مَرَضٌ وَقُلْنَ قَوْلًا مَعْرُوفًا

Translation: O Wives of Nabi! You are not like the other women: if you fear Allah, then you should not be complaisant while talking to the men who are not closely related to you, lest the one in whose Qalb (heart) is a disease may thereby be encouraged (desire), and speak using suitable good words.
(Because they are having Qalb disease they may get desire provoked by very soft speech).

About eating with sick, blind & lame:

2. Chapter 24 (Sura) An-Noor, verse (Ayah) no. 61

لَيْسَ عَلَى الْأَعْمَىٰ حَرَجٌ وَلَا عَلَى الْأَعْرَجِ حَرَجٌ وَلَا عَلَى الْمَرِيضِ حَرَجٌ

Translation: There is no blame on the blind, nor there is blame on the lame, nor there is blame on the sick to eat at your table.

About fasting during illness

3. Chapter (Sura) 2 Al-Baqara, verse (Ayah) no.184

فَمَنْ كَانَ مِنْكُمْ مَرِيضًا أَوْ عَلَىٰ سَفَرٍ فَعِدَّةٌ مِنْ أَيَّامٍ أُخَرَ

Transalation: Fast the prescribed number of days; except if any of you is ill or on a journey, let him fast a similar number of days later. For those who cannot endure it for medical reasons, there is a ransom: the feeding of one poor person for each missed day. But if he feeds more of his own free will, it is better for him. However, if you truly understand the rationale of fasting, it is better for you to fast.

Illness during Hajj or Umrah

4. Chapter (Sura) 2 Al-Baqara ,verse (Ayah) no 196

فَمَنْ كَانَ مِنْكُمْ مَرِيضًا أَوْ بِهِ أَذًى مِنْ رَأْسِهِ فَفِدْيَةٌ مِنْ صِيَامٍ أَوْ صَدَقَةٍ أَوْ نُسُكٍ

Translation: Complete the Hajj (obligatory pilgrimage in Makkah) and the Umrah (optional visit to Makkah) for the sake of Allah. If you are prevented from proceeding then send such offering for sacrifice as you can afford and do not shave your head until the offerings have reached their destiny. But if any of you is ill or has an ailment in his scalp which necessitates shaving, he must pay ransom either by fasting or feeding the poor or offering a sacrifice. If in peacetime anyone wants to take the advantage of performing Umrah and Hajj together, he should make an offering which he can afford; but if he lacks the means, let him fast three days during the Hajj and seven days on his return making ten days in all. This order is for the one whose household is not in the percincts of the Sacred mosque (masjid). Fear Allah and know that Allah is strict in retribution.

About Tayammum:

5. Chapter (Surah) 4 An-Nisaa, verse (Ayah) 43:

وَإِنْ كُنْتُمْ مَرْضَىٰ أَوْ عَلَىٰ سَفَرٍ أَوْ جَاءَ أَحَدٌ مِنْكُمْ مِنَ الْغَائِطِ أَوْ لَامَسْتُمُ النِّسَاءَ فَلَمْ تَجِدُوا مَاءً فَتَيَمَّمُوا صَعِيدًا طَيِّبًا

Translation: O believers! Do not offer your Salah when you are drunk until you know what you are saying; nor after seminal emission, except when you are travelling, unless you wash your whole body, If you are sick, or on a journey, or one of you has used the toilet, or has had contact with women (sexual relation with wives) and can find no water, then make Tayammum: take some clean earth and rub on your faces and hands with it. Allah is lenient, Forgiving.

A research report on uses of Allah's names & Quranic verses:

The scientist Masaru Emoto & his team of Japan found out that, the Muslim recites BISMILLAH before eating/drinking. He says that after saying (reciting) BISMILLAH on regular water, some positive changes occur in the quality of regular water. That makes it the best water.
Masaru Emoto said:"My Muslim colleague offered to recite Quranic verses over the water. He brought a tape-recorder and played some Quranic verses, and we got the most perfectly shaped chrystals. Then he played the 99 names of Allah Ta'ala. Each name produced a uniquely shaped chrystals.
He also found out that if someone recites the Quran on regular water, it gets the ability for the treatment of different diseases.
