  1. The Effects of Sin in this World and What should we do?

    Allah says:

    ظَهَرَ الْفَسَادُ فِي الْبَرِّ وَالْبَحْرِ بِمَا كَسَبَتْ أَيْدِي النَّاسِ

    Evil has appeared in Al-Barr (Land) and Al-Bahr (Osacen) because of what the hands of men have earned, that He may make them taste a part of that which they have done, in order that they may return.

    Ibn Abbas, Ikrimah, Ad-Dahhak, As-Suddi and others said:

    "What is meant by Al-Barr here is the empty land or wilderness, and by Al-Bahr is towns and cities."

    According to a report narrated from Ibn Abbas and Ikrimah,

    Al-Bahrrefers to towns and cities which are on the banks of rivers.

    Others said that what was meant was the usual meaning of the words, i.e., land and sea.

    Zayd bin Rafi` said:

    ظَهَرَ الْفَسَادُ

    (Evil has appeared),

    "The rain is withheld from the land and this is followed by famine, and it is withheld from the sea, adversely affecting the animals which live in it."

    This was recorded by Ibn Abi Hatim, who said:"Muhammad bin Abdullah bin Yazid Al-Muqri' told us, from Sufyan from Humayd bin Qays Al-A`raj from Mujahid:

    ظَهَرَ الْفَسَادُ فِي الْبَرِّ وَالْبَحْرِ

    (Evil has appeared on land and sea),

    "Evil on land means the killing of the son of Adam, and evil on the sea means piracy."

    According to the first opinion, the phrase,

    ظَهَرَ الْفَسَادُ فِي الْبَرِّ وَالْبَحْرِ بِمَا كَسَبَتْ أَيْدِي النَّاسِ

    (Evil has appeared on land and sea because of what the hands of men have earned),

    means the shortfall in the crops and fruits is because of sins.

    Abu Al-Aliyah said:

    "Whoever disobeys Allah in the earth has corrupted it, because the good condition of the earth and the heavens depends on obedience to Allah."

    Hence it says in the Hadith which was recorded by Abu Dawud:

    لَحَدٌّ يُقَامُ فِي الاَْرْضِ أَحَبُّ إِلَى أَهْلِهَا مِنْ أَنْ يُمْطَرُوا أَرْبَعِينَ صَبَاحًا

    Any prescribed punishment which is carried out in the land is better for its people than if it were to rain for forty days.

    The reason for that is that if the prescribed punishments are carried out, this will deter the people — most or many of them — from violating the prohibitions of Allah. If they give up sin, this will be a cause of blessings in the skies and on the earth. So, when `Isa bin Maryam, peace be upon him, comes down at the end of time, he will judge according to this Shariah at that time, and will kill the pigs and break the cross and abolish the Jizyah. He will accept nothing except Islam or the sword. When Allah destroys the Dajjal and his followers, and Ya'juj and Ma'juj during his time, it will be said to the earth, bring forth your blessing. Then groups of people will eat from one pomegranate, and will seek shade beneath its skin, and the milk of one pregnant camel will be sufficient for a group of people. This will only be because of the blessings that will result from application of the Shariah of Muhammad. The more justice is established, the more the blessings and good things will increase. It was reported in the Sahih:

    إِنَّ الْفَاجِرَ إِذَا مَاتَ تَسْتَرِيحُ مِنْهُ الْعِبَادُ وَالْبِلَدُ وَالشَّجَرُ وَالدَّوَاب

    When the evildoer dies, it is a relief for the people, the land, the trees and the animals.

    Imam Ahmad bin Hanbal recorded that Abu Qahdham said:

    "At the time of Ziyad or Ibn Ziyad, a man found a cloth in which were wrapped grains of wheat which were as big as date stones; on it was written:`This grew at a time when justice prevailed."'

    لِيُذِيقَهُم بَعْضَ الَّذِي عَمِلُوا

    that He may make them taste a part of that which they have done,

    means, He tries them with the loss of wealth, souls and fruits as a test and as a punishment for what they have done.

    لَعَلَّهُمْ يَرْجِعُونَ

    in order that they may return.

    means, from disobedience.

    This is like the Ayah,

    وَبَلَوْنَـهُمْ بِالْحَسَنَـتِ وَالسَّيِّيَاتِ لَعَلَّهُمْ يَرْجِعُونَ

    And We tried them with good and evil in order that they might turn. (7:168)

    All time highest stage at New Orleans with a crest of 21.27 feet on April 25th. Donaldsonville 2nd highest crest of record at 34.75 feet on May 16th. [AHPS]
    The greatest flood in modern history on the Lower MS River! This event due to persistent excessive rainfall on many of its tributaries combined to swell the river across a vast flood plain that spanned 80 miles wide in some locations. This record flood event changed the course of U.S. history by launching then Department of Commerce Secretary, Herbert Hoover, into the national spotlight towards gaining the office of President. This massive flood prompted legislation to mitigate and gain control of the river through erection of levees, flood control projects and spillways to alleviate catastrophic flooding, under the passage of the Flood Control Act of 1928, the authority placed with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. This flood caused widespread socio-economic impacts inclusive of mass displacement of people living in the inundated areas, primarily indentured farmers and field workers. This event is still regarded as one of the costiliest natural disasters in U.S. history. Red River Landing recorded its 2nd highest flood crest of 60.94 ft on May 14th; This is still the record crest at Baton Rouge of 47.28 ft on May 15th; Donaldsonville record crest 36.01 ft on May 15th; New Orleans had two crests; the first at 21.00 ft on April 25th to rank 3rd highest on record, the second 20.50 ft on May 18th to rank 4th highest on record. A crevasse was dynamited in the levee at Caernarvon, LA, 14 miles below New Orleans to save the city from flooding, but at the expense of destructive flooding of St Bernard and Plaquemines Parishes.

  3. Record drought , fires and now floods in Australia . While we had a colder summer than the last two or three seasons.
    Uk most flood warnings ever for their storms right at this moment . Worst storms in recent times.
    The antarctic has reached a high of 20 degrees for the first time in recorded history .
    All this is happening right now .
    This is the tip of the iceberg , we need to act NOW on GW so the future does not get worse.

  4. US people believe in GOD. Now they have a new god Trump. Why don't they ask both their gods to bless and protect them and get rid of the flood? Don't understand. Are both their gods useless?

  5. God controls the weather as insurance companies claim// that is a Pun for them that lack know this Edge. Tax rates have no effect on the margins in business and there is no accounting entry that can use prior year earnings on a current year's wages.. for example:
    debit wages expense credit wages payable – tor record the wages for the current period and to deduct it for tax purposes
    debit wages payable credit Bank or cash – to record paying them slaves the wages
    … U cant use Retained Earnings' account.. not to account for wages or buying of equipment… U cant
    debit Retained Earnings credit wages payable.. – u could do that but then pay twice in taxes.. as u reverse the deduction from the prior year… so I ask u with a weather report of God's WILL in my Hand.,. how do u move a Value from Retained Earnings for any wages expense?? or for buying equipment?? u cant.. Retained Earnings are ONLY used for 3 Normal items beyond paying corporate income taxes, 1. pay dividends to shareholders 2 buy back shares from the shareholders – this was done on avg $2-3 trillion per yr since the Dec 2017 Corp Tax cuts or 3. buy another company's shares and kill its jobs.. so ../ I demand an answer, because ONLY more souls plan to suicide and go to hell after the dumbest tax cut in USAss history.. double the debt of obama per yr and plan to cut social security is the only plan the Republicans have.. no wonder bread God sends floods,. and famines and all sorts of weather.. Insurance companies did not have to claim such weather was an "Act of God", they made it that way and Now courts of law agree.. good luck with finding un-Hollowed ground for them suicides.. no Heaven for the Over 102,000+ suicides of service persons since 2004 (alone)…. more and more ground is locally under water.. /
