The Green Deen
...“It is He Who sends down water (rain) from the sky, and with it we bring forth vegetation of all kinds, and out of it We bring forth green stalks, from which We bring forth thick clustered grain.” Al-An’am
We need to look after our greenery - look after and preserve the rain forests, trees, vegetation's, plantations etc.
How can you start straight away? With your own Garden!
I've always loved greenery and love nature. I'm getting back into it and will be doing some all important gardening stuff with mama (OK, well I was supposed to do all the veggie planting two months ago - but got busy - I shall now always make it a priority!)...(see 'Gardening Part 1 post below).
If you don't have a garden - keep some plants in the house - my house is full of indoor plants - its an indoor amazon rain forest!
Join a green-reservation org - join local park reservation project, plant and grow your own.
We need to look after our greenery because Allah will question us about it. We all need to get started right away. So go on, off you go, female or male, go buy an indoor/outdoor plants, mow the lawn, un-weed the weeds - go get green-fingered today and remember the ayah above insha'Allah.
..."and he it is who spread the earth and made in it firm mountains and rivers, and of all fruits he has made in it two kinds; he makes the night cover the day; most surely there are signs in this for a people who reflect." Surah 13; Verse 3
Allah (swt) always asks us to reflect - because by reflecting we see His beauty and perfection and we draw closer to Him and our ibaadah is strengthen - everything is aligned and our souls is at ease and peace.
..."then eat of all the fruits and walk in the ways of your lord submissively. there comes forth from within it a beverage of many colors, in which there is healing for men; most surely there is a sign in this (life of bees) for a people who reflect." Surah 16; Verse 69
...that picture is from my local park - its gorgeous masha'Allah (:

Not all is lost - just liek the wintry frost - a season that comes and goes - remain focused on your goal - fill your bowl up with a daily portion of hope - keep away the deadly toxins and dope - hold on tight to that rope!
Which rope? The one of hope - leading back to the Divine - our Creator and Master - this life is going faster and faster - hold on tight and don't give in to your nafsi fight - take a flight and reach higher heights - that which will set your soul free and lead you to your divine decree.
Reach for the stars - that's your destiny - don't be fooled by evil - his place is behind bars - yours is high above with the stars.
One Life, One Chance, One Vision - live a life devoted to God and forget those divisions as in the end we stand together to be judged - this world is temporary - so your actions don't misjudge.
We are all one and come from the One - defend humanity - no insanity or profanity - but lead by example and learn the lessons from the Deen - step up on to the scene and invite all back to the this beautiful way - don't be mean and don't fall stray - let them be that way - just say your salaam and walk away!
Don't let our talk be cheap and let's strengthen our ibaadah so its becomes more stronger and not weak.
We have lots to learn - on a daily - let's fixup now so nothing but goodness we earn. If we fall short - its all good - get back up and let's turn - back to our Creator - the One and Only - this life is a gift - treat it with respect - don't pretend to be holy - it won't help us - as we shall all soon return to the One and Only! ©
