The Land Is Shrinking !
Is It ‘Global Warming’ Or
‘Global Denying’ Of Truth?

See What Allah Says In The Quran!

(By: M. Javed Naseem)

Ocean waters melting the undersides of Antarctic ice shelves are responsible for most of the continent's ice shelf mass loss, a new study by NASA and university researchers has found.
(Nasa Press Release dated 13th June, 2013).

 (Snowfall in Lahore/Pakistan, 26th Feb, 2011)

A few years ago, scientists came up with the “global warming” theory and they said that sea-level was rising because of melting glaciers. As a result, many islands faced the danger of extinction. Later, they realized that there is also ‘global cooling’ which brings cold weather and snow to the parts of the world where it was never recorded before (e.g., snowfall in the UAE, in Lahore/Pakistan, or rains in the desert lands of UAE, Saudi Arabia, etc.). Thousands of pages were written on these weather patterns and it became fashionable to talk about ‘global warming’.

 (Snowfall in Raas-al Khaimah, UAE)

Snowfalls in otherwise ‘warm’ plains was embarrassing for the promoters of ‘global warming’. Therefore, to save their face, the scientists changed the terminology from ‘global warming’ to ‘climate changes’, and that’s what they use these days. They will continue their ‘guess-work’ on the basis of ‘this’ or ‘that’. But if they bother to read the Holy Quran, they’ll find clues to most of the mysteries of the universe. With education and research they can figure out ‘How’ but will never learn ‘Why’. To get the answer to ‘Why’ they need to be connected to the Creator.

(Floods in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, April 2013) 

It is Allah Who created everything and it is He Who controls it. He educates human beings on many aspects of His creation and even tells us how to handle these things. He educated us in the Quran about human birth; different stages of fetus; functions of different body parts; erection of mountains; crust of the earth; different kinds of oceans that merge but don’t mix; dead earth becoming alive to produce; how days and nights occur and how they alternate; how sun, moon, earth and other planets follow their fixed paths; how rain is carried by the clouds and steered by the winds to certain areas; how everything is created with a purpose; etc., etc. There are plenty of clues and hints in the Holy Quran. We need to do some scientific research on those clues to achieve the astonishing discoveries. Unfortunately, the rich Muslim countries are not interested in those discoveries.

 (Floods in Abu Dhabi, UAE, 2013)

Planet Earth consists of generally three parts of water and one part of dry land. This portion of land will be further (gradually) reduced till the end of the universe. This is happening right now in front of our eyes but we ignore the Word of God and believe in the word of man. Man always comes up with something and then changes his opinion (theory) later on, to be changed further by the next generation. Man attributes this change to different factors (some of which did not exist before). But the truth of the matter is that it’s “knowledge” and all knowledge comes from God. When we have no knowledge, we come up with some theory that we change later on when we gain a little knowledge.  But when we have more knowledge, we change that theory/opinion again. And that process continues. You can give it any fancy name for your satisfaction. Knowledge forms the basis of everything.
Here is challenging task for mankind. Allah invites us to study what’s happening to land and how deep the impact these changes have. It is up to us to do the research.

أَوَلَمْ يَرَوْاْ أَنَّا نَأْتِى ٱلأَرْضَ نَنقُصُهَا مِنْ أَطْرَافِهَا
وَٱللَّهُ يَحْكُمُ لاَ مُعَقِّبَ لِحُكْمِهِ وَهُوَ سَرِيعُ ٱلْحِسَابِ
“See they not that We gradually reduce the land
(in their control) from its outlying borders?
(When) Allah commands, there is none to put back
His Command; and He is swift in calling to account.”
(al-Quran 13:41)

Allah tells us that land is gradually reducing in size and water is taking over. Did it ring any alarm bells? Not for 1400 years! The scientists all over the world have been studying the phenomenon of ‘sinking islands’ for some years now and attributing it to Global Warming. They did not start studying it because it was mentioned in the Quran more than 1400 years ago. Had they taken heed from the Quran, they could have come up with better measures to cope with it.

بَلْ مَتَّعْنَا هَـٰؤُلاۤءِ وَآبَآءَهُمْ حَتَّىٰ طَالَ عَلَيْهِمُ ٱلْعُمُرُ
أَفَلاَ يَرَوْنَ أَنَّا نَأْتِى ٱلأَرْضَ نَنقُصُهَا مِنْ أَطْرَافِهَآ أَفَهُمُ ٱلْغَالِبُونَ
“Nay, We gave the good things of this life to these men and
their fathers until the period grew long for them. See they
not that We gradually reduce the land (in their control)
from its outlying borders? Is it then they who will win?”
(al-Quran 21:44)

(Sinking Maldives)

Scientific American adds:
Worried their country will end up under water as the globe warms and sea ices melt, the government of the Maldives announced that the Indian Ocean nation will go carbon neutral by 2020. No part of the chain of 1,200 low-lying islets rises more than six feet (1.8 meters) or so above sea level, leaving the 400,000 inhabitants there at grave risk of rising sea levels and storm surges, environmental journalist Andy Revkin writes t in a New York Timesblog.  

The Maldives government last year considered setting aside funds from its main biz – tourism – to purchase land from another country, such as India or Sri Lanka, to eventually relocate its populace. Recent reports give urgency to the plan, indicating that  
sea levels are expected to rise some 3.3 feet (1 meter) by 2100, even faster than predicted in the already dire-sounding Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) report released in 2007.

In an effort to prevent his archipelago nation from literally drowning, newly elected Maldives Prez Mohamed Nasheed said he will attempt to make the islands carbon-neutral by 2020 – the first country to do so, reports The Observer. How? By investing $1.1 billion over 10 years in alternative energies from rooftop solar arrays to wind turbines, to a biomass-burning power plant (in the tropical islands’ case, that means coconut husks), according to another New York Times blog. “Going green might cost a lot," Nasheed said in an op-ed published this weekend in The Observer, "but refusing to act now will cost us the Earth." 

Green Buzz adds:
“We just do not do enough to protect our planet. The temperatures are rising, the sea levels rise as well, and now there are many places that could simply disappear. The list is very long, we chose just ten of them for this list:”

The Maldives:

These famous paradise-looking tropical islands are well known for its white-sand beaches and they have always been one of tourists’ favorite sites. Unfortunately, the Global Warming could end the enjoyment in the 600 miles-stretching islands. As 80% of the country is only 3.3 feet (one meter) above the sea level, the continuous rising of the ocean level turn the alarm on for the beautiful islands. With the current ocean-rising dynamics, Maldives could disappear before 2050.

Bangkok, Thailand:
Bangkok is also one of the world’s most popular exotic destinations, but also one of the places that could disappear due to global warming. The city is already sinking due to its too heavy urbanization on its too soft underground as well as the excessive pumping of groundwater. The location also makes the city exposed to floods, especially in the monsoon season. All these factors could send Bangkok underwater before the end of this century.
Mississippi River Delta, USA:
The great American river runs into the Gulf of Mexico in a breathtaking delta rivers, marches, and low-lying barrier islands. You guess, the rising of the sea level could destroy this landscape. However, that’s not the only way for Global Warming to damage this region, as it’s exposed to many sea storms and hurricanes. We all remember Katrina in New Orleans.
Komodo Island, Indonesia:
The home of the world’s most famous reptile could end under the water surface in few decades if the Global Warming continues to progress. The sea surrounding the island is growing and could cause extinction of the Komodo dragon, but the increased acidification could also cause big damage, as it makes the surface temperature higher, which may eventually kill the corals around the island and destroy the amazing diving sites.
Great Barrier Reef, Australia:
The delicate ecosystem of one of the world’s most beautiful sites is under threat since the temperatures has begun growing. There is a large variety of fish and other marine species which depend on the coral for survival. As the coral reef is nearing death, its flora and fauna is nearing the same destiny. It could all disappear because of the rising temperatures.
Tokyo, Japan:
Tokyo is one of the world’s largest metropolises, allegedly great to live in, but the climate change effects tell different story. It suffers from the phenomenon called “heat islands”, which means that factory emission and the artificial heat from cars cause local greenhouse effect. As the temperatures continue to rise, Tokyo will have bigger and bigger problems with the heat.
Venice, Italy:
For some people it might be hard to believe that a city which lies on water could suffer from global warming, but the recent measures say different. Actually, the city is slowly sinking anyway, about nine inches per 100 years, but the recent climate conditions could make things worse. A new barrier which could withstand a 100 feet deluge is under construction, but experts say that new measures should be done in order to be sure that it could be enough to save the city from disappearing.

River Thames, London:
The river Thames has been pride of London for centuries, but today it turns to be one of the greatest threats for the city. Since the early Middle Ages, the city has been expanding into the river, making its course narrower. A great barrier was built back in 19th century in order to prevent floods, but the rising of sea level could prove this system inefficient and transform Thames into part of the sea.
Big Sur, California, USA:
The coastline between Los Angeles and San Francisco is certainly one of the most beautiful landscapes in North America. Unfortunately, there is possibility for the global warming to destroy the ecosystem and the landscape itself, as the raised temperatures lead to wildfires. However, the government of California has taken steps toward finding solutions about environmental issues in the last few years, which make us hope that Big Sur won’t be one of those places that could disappear due to the global warming.
Panama Canal, Panama:
The Panama Canal made a revolution in world’s trade when opened in 1914, offering great alternative for ships which had to move from Atlantic to Pacific and opposite. There is one interesting challenge with which ships are facing – there’s 85 feet of elevation between the oceans. The solution was found in vast amounts of increasingly scarce fresh water, but some shortages in last few years have forced several closures of the canal.

Business Insider adds :

According to the EPA, global sea level has risen by eight inches since 1870. This change is already affecting many low lying islands that have had to adapt. Some populations are moving to higher areas, or are trying to buy land from other countries to migrate its citizens, and some have even developed new ways of farming to protect their agriculture.
2007 estimates from the Intergovernmental Panel On Climate Change's most conservative estimates suggest that global sea level will reach increase 8 to 16 inches above 1990 levels by 2090. The National Academy of Sciences predictions from 2009 suggest that by 2100, sea level could increase by anywhere from 16 inches to 56 inches, depending how the Earth responds to changing climate.
Here is a list of islands facing extinction. See how they are coping with rising sea levels:
The president of Kiribati, Anote Tong, is in talks with Fiji's military government to buy up to 5,000 acres of land in order to relocate the 102,697 people that live in his country.
President Tong tells The Telegraph that this is their last resort: "Our people will have to move as the tides have reached our homes and villages."
Kiribati is about halfway between Hawaii and Australia and is made up of 32 low-lying atolls and one raised island. Most of its population has already moved to one island, Tarawam, after the rest of their land disappeared beneath the ocean.
Villagers on Abaiang, one of the Kiribati Islands, had to relocate the entire village of Tebunginako because of rising seas and erosion.

The Maldives, consisting of over 1,100 islands to the west of India, is the world's lowest-lying nation. On average the islands are only 1.3 meters above sea level. The 325,000 (plus 100,000 expatriate workers who are not counted in the census) residents of the islands are threatened by rising sea levels.
A documentary called The Island President tells the story of President Mohamed Nasheed of the Maldives as he confronts the rise of the sea level in his country. A rise of just three feet would submerge the Maldives and make them uninhabitable.

Seychelles consists of 115 granite and coral islands in the western Indian Ocean, with a population of 87,122.
Scuba diver Micheal Espron tells The National: "The water used to be farther out. Soon, the water will be right up into the hotel."
He also says that tourism will be affected when there are no beaches left around the islands. Locals remember that there used to be much more land for people, but now tourists are seen cramming into the small area of beaches that remain.

Torres Strait Islands:
The Torres Strait Islands are located between Australia and New Guinea and are made up of 274 islands with a population over 8,000.
The Independent talked to locals who have been living by the sea for generations. One named Maria Passi said "at night I can't sleep if the tide is high," because she is no longer comfortable living by the sea after her house was flooded one night.
Her husband Ron remembers the night. "There was water everywhere, and rubbish floating around, and coconuts under the bed." Maria added: "When I saw how it looked, I just sat down and cried."

The United Nations declared the approximately 100 residents of Tegua, part of the Torres Strait Islands located in the South Pacific, the first climate change refugees in 2005.
Much of the flooding was because the island sunk nearly five inches between 1997 and 2009, but the sea level also rose, causing about a quarter of the flooding.

Solomon Islands:
The Solomon Islands are east of Papua New Guinea, and have a population of 584,578. A team of French researchers have been monitoring the island of Vanikoro, part of the 992 islands that make up the island chain, because they think it is slowly sinking.
The team placed a survey marker a safe distance from the beach, and seven years later it was underwater. After what is know about Tegua the researchers found that along with rising sea levels, this particular island is also sinking.

Micronesia is made up of 607 mountainous islands and low-lying coral atolls and is being eroded away by rising sea levels and has even made cemeteries disappear.
The islands are east of the Philippines and have a population of 102,624. One man was seen standing shin-deep in water, where a cemetery used to be. Micronesia's Ambassador to the UN told ABC News: "Even the dead are no longer safe in my country."
The ocean water is also killing off food crops. A small one meter rise would make the island uninhabitable.

Palau consists of eight principal islands and more than 250 smaller ones, about 500 miles southeast of the Philippines. Their population of 20,000 is being threatened by rising sea levels.
William Brangham of PBS wrote: "Palau’s coasts are being eroded, its local farmlands tainted by seawater, and its valuable reefs threatened."
The president of Palau, Johnson Toribiong, describes the damage he is seeing as “a slow-moving tsunami.”

Carteret Islands:
The Carteret Islands are located in the south-west Pacific Ocean and is home to about 2,500 people. The Telegraph states that some people believe these islands will be uninhabitable by 2015, as high tides have inundated the islands, destroying crops, wells, and homes.
Bernard Tunim, a clan chief from the islands, tells The Telegraph: “In the last 10 to 20 years the change has been dramatic. We have experienced many king tides and when the wind blows, it comes right through the island, destroying our vegetables and fruit. The salt water destroyed bread fruit trees and poisoned the wells.”

Tuvalu consists of six true atolls and three reef islands that has a population of 11,636 that was estimated in 2005. The highest point in the country is less than five meters above sea level, but most of it is less than a meter above.
In 2003, Saufatu Sopoanga, Prime Minister of Tuvalu, told the United Nations General Assembly: "We live in constant fear of the adverse impacts of climate change. For a coral atoll nation, sea level rise and more severe weather events loom as a growing threat to our entire population. The threat is real and serious, and is of no difference to a slow and insidious form of terrorism against us."
Although not an island, Bangladesh, located in South Asia, experiences floods that cover about a quarter of the country every year. Climate change is making the floods worse and the 156 million people in the country are learning how to live with the effects.
Farmers have created agriculture that floats on rafts. These rafts are made of straw, rice stubble and a weed called water hyacinth.

  1. Good remembrance on ALLAH's words. However, Shaitan is also here to destroy us. HAARP (High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program) is a little-known, yet critically important U.S. military defense program which has generated quite a bit of controversy over the years in certain circles. Though denied by HAARP officials, some respected researchers allege that secret electromagnetic warfare capabilities of HAARP are designed to forward the US military’s stated goal of achieving full-spectrum dominance by the year 2020. Others go so far as to claim that HAARP can and has been used for weather modification, to cause earthquakes and tsunamis, to disrupt global communications systems, and more.
    Major aspects of the program are kept secret for alleged reasons of “national security.” Yet there is no doubt that HAARP and electromagnetic weapons capable of being used in warfare do exist. According to the official HAARP website , “HAARP is a scientific endeavor aimed at studying the properties and behavior of the ionosphere, with particular emphasis on being able to understand and use it to enhance communications and surveillance systems for both civilian and defense purposes.” The ionosphere is the delicate upper layer of our atmosphere which ranges from about 30 miles (50 km) to 600 miles (1,000 km) above the surface of the Earth.
    The HAARP website acknowledges that experiments are conducted which use electromagnetic frequencies to fire pulsed, directed energy beams in order to “temporarily excite a limited area of theionosphere .” Some scientists state that purposefully disturbing this sensitive layer could have major and even disastrous consequences. Concerned HAARP researchers like Dr. Michel Chossudovskyof the University of Ottawa and Alaska’s Dr. Nick Begich (son of a US Congressman) present evidence suggesting that these disturbances can even cause tsunamis and earthquakes.

    In January of 1999, the European Union called the project a global concern and passed a resolution calling for more information on its health and environmental risks.
    EU “considers HAARP by virtue of its far-reaching impact on the environment to be a global concern and calls for its legal, ecological and ethical implications to be examined by an international independent body before any further research and testing. EU regrets the repeated refusal of the U.S. government to send anyone to give evidence on HAARP.
    Directed energy is such a powerful technology it could be used to heat the ionosphere to turn weather into a weapon of war. Imagine using a flood to destroy a city or tornadoes to decimate an approaching army in the desert. The military has spent a huge amount of time on weather modification as a concept for battle environments. If an electromagnetic pulse went off over a city, basically all the electronic things in your home would wink and go out, and they would be permanently destroyed.
    Some researchers have raised questions about the possible involvement of HAARP in major disasters like the earthquake in Haiti, Indonesian tsunami, and hurricane Katrina. Could these have been HAARP experiments gone awry? Might they even have been caused by rogue elements which gained control of this devastating technology. Of course disasters like this happen regularly on a natural basis, yet if you begin to research, there is some high strangeness around some of these disasters. The evidence is inconclusive, yet with the known and unknown major destructive capabilities of this weapon, serious questions remain.
