Ramadan Thoughts5: Don’t make mischief on earth!
The Quran, surah 2 verses 11 to 12:
“When it is said to them: "Make not mischief on the earth," they say: "Why,
we only want to make peace!" [002.011]
Of a surety, they are the ones who make mischief, but they realise (it) not”. [002.012]
Surely, our life on earth is transient. We should try to leave as little harm as we possibly can before we return to the Maker, if to contribute positively is not possible?
How often have we heard that war is necessary to maintain world peace? Does that make sense?
How often do we experience misery from the mischief caused by the “noble actions” of others?

Visit http://mindprod.com/politics/iraqwarpix.html to know more about the great American Government’s contribution to world peace. Americans have killed over 100,000 civilians, mostly children in Iraq. You must have a very strong stomach to see the photos of “collateral damage” there. Yup, Politicians Again!
