Man and the Environment According To Islam-1

Man and the Environment According To Islam-1
Self Making The Man of Islam is constructive. He builds himself and his environment. His success in building his environ­ment depends on his success in self‑making and vice versa. In other words his success in improving the environment of his life paves the way for his self‑improvement. In view of this strong reciprocal relationship between man and the environment of his life he must pay his utmost attention to an all‑round improvement of himself on a wide scale commensurate to a Muslim's broad outlook on the world and man. In this respect Islam has extensive teachings which are related to all the aspects of human life and cover all human needs, whether material or spiritual, individual or social, cultural or economic and so on.

Man and the Environment According To Islam-2
Piety Such a man is pious. He is careful. He observes the restraints imposed on him by his love for Allah and truth. He enjoys complete freedom but is subservient to Allah. It is this subservience which protects him from the slavery of others. Before doing anything he first thinks whether his action will please Allah or will displease Him.

Some Western physicians, after they had been acquainted with the Arab and Islamic medicine, accepted Islam.

In addition, the ritual prayer is a set of physical activities. Islam ha ...

How you control your anger?

How you control your anger?
A simple unlettered man from the desert once arrived in Medina and came to the Prophet (s.a.w). He asked the Prophet (s.a.w) to give him a word of advice which he said he would follow. The Prophet (s.a.w) said: "CONTROL YOUR ANGER." And then the Prophet (s.a.w) remained silent. When he returned to the interior of the desert where he lived, he found that the situation had become quite tense. Some audacious young man from his tribe had raided another tribe in the vicinity and stolen their wealth. In retaliation, the other tribe had also carried out raids. Now they were at war. Immediately he prepared himself to defend his tribe and was angered by the outrageous conduct of the adversaries. Just as he stood in line to fight, he suddenly recalled what the Prophet (s.a.w) had told him. "CONTROL YOUR ANGER." He was soon engrossed in deep thought. Admonishing h ...
