Environmental Pollution

PrintE-mail

According to scientists, environmental pollution is among the most serious problems facing humanity today. This is especially significant since the adverse effect of environmental pollution affects people directly, yet they often do not even realize it. For example, people breathe air that is heavily polluted with nitrogen dioxide given off by cars, planes and factories which causes severe respiratory problems. Yet while breathing it, they do not realize what harm they have caused to themselves. If the exposure to the pollution was minimal, over time the immune system will clear the body of the harmful effects of the pollution. However, if the exposure is excessive, it may overpower the immune system or even kill it, eventually resulting in one's death.

Hi … then … Bye!!! This is the meaningless greeting of the West. One wonders what really does it mean? Is he asking you whether you are on a high? Whatever it may mean, no greeting is as comprehensive and perfect as the greeting which is derived from one of the attributes of Allah Ta'ala, which is the greeting of the angels and will be the greeting of the Believers in Jannah — the beautiful greeting of As-Salaamu Alaikum.

Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) is reported to have said:

"On no other day is the worship of Allah Ta'ala more beloved than the first ten days of Zhul Hijjah. The fast of each of these days is equal to the fast of a whole year, and the ibaadat (worship) of each of these nights is equal to the ibaadat of Laylatul Qadr" (Tirmidhi, Ibn Majah).

 

It is related from Ibn Abbaas (R.A.) that Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said:

"No days are as weighty with Allah Ta'ala and so liked by Him for good deeds than the first ten days of Zhul Hijjah. So in these days increasingly read: TASBEEH (Subhaanallah), TAHLEEL (Laa-Ilaaha-Illallaah), TAHMEED (Alhamdulillah), TAKBEER (Allahu Akbar) (Tabraani)

Hazrath Luqman (A.S.) was  granted great wisdom by Allah Ta'ala. He once said to his son:

"My dear son, avoid incurring debts, for a debt is a humiliation by day (when the creditors make demands) and grief by night (when you cannot sleep worrying about how you will pay it).

 

My dear son, entertain hopes of mercy from Allah Ta'ala, but let not your hopes make you bold in committing sins; be fearful of Allah Ta'ala but let not your fear make you despair of His mercy.

 

My dear son, if somebody complains to you that so-and-so has taken out both his eyes and you can actually see his eyes missing, do not form any judgement about the person until you have heard the other side of the story. It is possible that the one complaining may have hit the other person first and taken out his eyes earlier" (Fazaa'il -e-Sadaqaat).
