How Much Do We Care??






I read about her speech in an email this morning, and decide to look for the speech in YouTube. Severn Cullis-Suzuki, a girl who, at the age of 12, had tried to raise awareness in the environment and poverty in front of leaders in a UN meet in 1992.

Go ahead and listen to the speech... it sure made one ponder a lot.

Allah had made us as khalifah of this earth. Yet, did we take on this responsibility and take good care of what we have, our surroundings and the world? Or did we forget this responsibility and follow our nafs, doing as we like, not caring of the impacts that our actions may have on our surroundings and the future?

A mukmin does not only care for himself... He cares for his brothers in Islam, for mankind, and for the earth which he dwells. Take time to reflect and ponder... how much have we done, and how much can we do, to help save the environment and help the needy around us. And then? Take ACTION!

Some food for thought for all of us... me, and all the readers here. May Allah bless...
