Quote-Unquote: Dr. Pasha on Islam,
Muslims and the World
(Bringing Islam to the World One Concept at a Time!
Taking the Qur'an to Every Home and Heart that Needs It --
And which One Does Not?)
Round the clock, around the globe – that is God’s Sustainability Warranty for Planet Earth.
Most reasonable people don’t question the fact that our world is a mess.
That is what Global Warming perhaps is.
And that is also what people mean by things like environmental degradation: can’t safely breathe the air we need to live; can’t drink the water without serious health consequences; can’t even live wherever we choose on God’s own earth without wondering what kind and level of toxicity is oozing from where.
And maybe that is what sustainability is all about.
Many of these things are of our own making.
Bima Kasabat Ayidin Naas, says the Qur’an.
So, much of it we will have to fix ourselves. Otherwise, we will perish – sooner than we think.
But here is a divine formula that has been put in place by God Almighty, himself, to protect us and our habitat, the earth, and fill it with enough blessings – “sustainability” if you will – to carry it through for the rest of its natural life.
And that formula is contained in Muslims chanting round the clock and around the globe the following Divine Expressions of Subhaanallah, Alhamdulillah, Bismillah, Laa Ilaaha Illallah and Muhammad Rasulullah!
This is God’s own Sustainability Warranty for Planet Earth – an abode that God made for us to live on and to enjoy.
As God Almighty said in the Qur’an:
Wa Lakum Fil Ardi Mustaqarrun wa Mattaa’un Ilaa Heen.
Thus, proper Dhikr is that in which the whole person is involved: body, mind, heart and soul. And in which the whole society with all its institutions is involved - family-wise, economically, politically, socially, culturally, educationally, militarily and otherwise.

That is Islam!
