Water is life - it is God’s gift to all

Dear Friends,

Water is life.  It does not belong to us.  It was created by God, and belongs to God, and will ultimately return to God. It is not ours to use selfishly or to waste. Most of us have forgotten or disregarded this most important fact.

Sura 22 The Pilgrimage (Al-Hajj)

[22:63] Do you not see that God brings down water from the sky and then the land turns green? God is Gentle, All-Aware.

We did not create a single molecule of it, nor did we create any of the life that it sustains.

Sura 4 The Women (Al-Nisaa)

[4:126] To God belongs what is in the heavens and what is in the earth. God is encompassing of all things.

Water is only one of the uncountably many blessings freely given to us by God.  Water is but a metaphor for all of God’s blessings which include  ourselves, the earth, and His teachings on how we should conduct ourselves while we are on His earth.

Sura 16 The Bees (Al-Nahl)

     [16:18] [16:18] If you count God's blessings, you can never encompass them. God is Forgiver, Merciful.

Clearly water is basic to life, but that is not what I’m going to talk about here.  Water is a good jumping off point to something that is almost as basic to us - that is ECONOMICS.

Because we have forgotten or disregarded God’s teachings and because we have fallen for a global neoliberal ‘religion’ of individual rights, freedom, relentless progress, and tolerance for just about anything under the sun,  the world’s economic system has already collapsed

Like in the Oscar Wiilde novel “The Picture of Dorian Gray”, Dorian looks fine down in the parlor where he is partying, but up in the attic the truth about his real state is truly ugly.

If we are going to avoid revolution (which is already happening in several parts of the world) in the United States,  we are going to have to make some big changes to our basic  beliefs and the ways we behave according to those beliefs.

This web-page is decicated to those of you who are sick and tired of living the “shop till you drop” lifestyle - living like insects  staring at your smartPhone or the TV news for the next thing to do, to buy, and to treasure.  As a community of humans, we have lost our way.  The consequences are going to be grim.  There is a non-violent solution to our depressed state.  It is to return to the traditional teachings of all of our Prophets of God who teach: surrender to God’s will, morality, charity, and worship.  

May these pages bring peace to your heart and to renewal of the community of man.  One at a time we can fix this.

Peace be upon you,
