Nature; at your service – WED 2011


On 5th June this year we mark the World Environment day or WED 2011. This year WED supports the United Nations International Year of Forests with the theme, “Nature; at your service”. The United Nations General Assembly declared 2011 as the International year of forests to raise awareness on sustainable management, conservation and sustainable development of all types of forests.

For long we have mistreated our forests; we have deforested, we have over exploited, we have hackneyed and made them trite, we have shown no mercy at all. What most us forget is the blunt fact that these forests are home to some 80% of the terrestrial biodiversity on this planet. They cover 31% of the total land area; while livelihoods of 1.6 billion people depend on the forests, forests provide a home to more than 300 million people worldwide. The forests also play a major role as security, homes and livelihood for 60 million indigenous people around the world.

The Journey of Mohamed – Seal of Islam [PART TWO]: The Year of the Elephants


The Journey of Mohamed – Seal of Islam [PART TWO]:
The Year of the Elephants

In the late sixth century, Mecca’s southern neighbor, Yemen was under the rule of an Ethiopian Governor, Abraha al-Ashram, Abraha (a.k.a Abramos  530-570 C.E.). Abraha marched on to Mecca, (though literally it was unaccomplished), he was reportedly envious of the pilgrimage traffic Mecca was attracting. He intended to build a similar, a rival pilgrimage site in Yemen. He ordered the establishment of a beautiful cathedral in Sana’a, and ordered people to go there instead of the Ka’bah in Mecca. It was when no one showed up that he set out to attack Mecca and destroy the holy house of Arabia. Little did he know what fate awaits him in Mecca!

It was believed that Abraha’s army attempted to march on Mecca with a cavalry of elephants, an animal that the Arabs had never before seen. He sent word out that he will not harm anyone but those who come in his way, and that he comes only to destroy the old Ka’baa built by Abraham and Ishmael.

The Journey of Mohamed – Seal of Islam [PART ONE]: The Pagan Arabia – Pre-Islamic Arabia

Preface

There is much that we can learn from the life and teaching of Mohamed [Peace be upon him]. Prophet Mohamed is definitely the most influenced personality to have lived on the face of our planet. It is important to understand and learn as much as possible of the last messenger sent on to mankind, it is also a religious obligation for all of us Muslims to follow his way of life and practice his teaching on an everyday basis. A Muslim’s fundamentals and principles are based on the Quran – the holy book of God and the Sunnah – the life and teachings of prophet Mohamed.

I am neither a Sheikh nor a religious scholar, but I am an admirer of Prophet Mohamed. I hope to write a series of short articles that come out in parts, which covers The Journey of Mohamed – life of the last prophet. I will compile and write these articles from different credited sources (approved scholars), to give a fairly shorter narration that covers important events and information that can help readers to understand the story of the Prophet.
