In the name of God, Compassionate, Merciful بسم الله الرحمن الرحيمِ | Peace be with you السلام عليكم

In the name of God, compassionate & merciful بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمنِ الرَّحِيمِ 
Peace be with you السلام عليكم


Muslim magazine www.EMEL.com released an 'Eco-jihad' issue for June, hitting the recycled nail on the biodegradable head, on how to fix the Earth's boo-boos.

Sarah Joseph's editorial brought the imminent danger home:
"We don't seem to believe  that a global climate crisis is imminent and the Earth has no instant 'facial' features to inspire us into action. The the earth is crying...We have to participate in the Eco-Jihad"

And what is Eco-jihad? "Jihad is a beautiful word  with a noble meaning. It comes from the Arabic juhud, meaning to strive and struggle. Jihad means to strive in the way of good. I cannot think of anything more pressing & essential than striving of the environmental future of our planet"

Eco-jihad, a feasible and awesome title. We should let the masses know.

Also in the magazine,
  • Dilwar Hussain's article on Freedom, it's diverse interpretations. 
  • An eco-masjid from IndyACT - League of Independent Activists.
  • Rianne ten Veen, authro of '199 ways to plese God'; making Hajj greener. 
  • Chris Jordan's brilliant recycled art on a grand scale.
  •  The beautiful Lucy Bushill-Matthews' 'Fearless' report on living in South Africa.
  • Little Green Radicals t-shirts for kids.
  • Graze.com - I'm a regular grazer.
  • Tetris furniture from Supermarket.
  • GreencleanUK.com, and, 
  • Stress signals... How stress can kill! No, I'm joking - but emel lists easy ways to limit the negative impact stress has on our health - from causing migraines to increasing heart problems, simply saying 'no' to extra tasks, organisation and learning to accept the unchangeable are a few proven ways to reduce the 'argh'.
Peace.
