Day sixteen... dated Nov/29/09
Without water, there would be no life. Without clean water, there would be a life full of misery and sickness. I'm grateful for the pure water that we drink everyday. You would never imagine the importance of clean water until you try the opposite.
There are people here in Egypt who drink water that comes from dirty rivers, dirty enough to have dead animals dumped into them. They drink this water, bathe with it, and clean their dishes with it. The amount of diseases these people have are unimaginable.
"Allah is He Who has created the heavens and the earth and sends down water (rain) from the sky, and thereby brought forth fruits as provision for you; and He has made the ships to be of service to you, that they may sail through the sea by His Command; and He has made rivers (also) to be of service to you."
The Holy Quran, Ibrahim, Chapter 14, Verse 32
We (humans) have abused the blessings of God, the rivers, the lakes and the seas, by believing that it is ours, that we have the freedom to misuse them as we like.
I'm grateful there are still people out there who are aware of the importance of these blessings, and are trying their best to maintain them and keep them clean, as God has intended them to be.
