Where Are the Ansar Today? The Lost Spirit of Hijrah..


Auzubillahi minas syaitanir rajim Bismillahirrahmanirrahim... Assalamualaikum... 

By Ælfwine Mischler
22/02/2004

A sister once told me that she and her family had made hijrah to Egypt but that she couldn’t have come without her microwave oven. Hmmm. That struck me as perhaps not being in quite the same spirit as the Muhajirun who emigrated from Makkah in 622 CE. But then again, maybe that’s just because when I lived in Los Angeles, I was the only person there who didn’t own a microwave.

The Muhajirun left behind not only their property but often their families, too. At that time there were very few households in which everyone was Muslim. Most families were split, with one spouse or one child Muslim and the rest of them pagan. Those who emigrated never knew if they would see their family members again. No photographs to remember them by, no weekly telephone calls or e-mails to those left behind. But the Muhajirun were willing to make the sacrifice.

Today there are still many who revert to Islam and find themselves cut off by their families. If they are still living at home at the time of their reversion, they may actually be kicked out. If they’re not still living at home, their families may just cut their relations with them. (To be fair, there are also families who don’t ostracize their Muslim member, even if they do think he or she has “gone off the deep end.”) Yet people continue to revert, unable to deny the truth any longer. So, though they may not actually move to a new land, they are in some respects like the Muhajirun, that is, in need of help.


But where are the Ansar today?
Do we have shelters for new Muslims (or for those suffering from domestic violence)? Do we have social services for them? Networks to help them find jobs? Or even just services to help them learn their religion? Or what about services for immigrant Muslims who need to settle in a new land, learn a new language? Only in limited cases, I’m afraid.
We often hear about the great sacrifices that the Muhajirun made, but they couldn’t have left Makkah without the Ansar, the Muslims of Madinah who helped them.
The Ansar did more than open their homes and help the Muhajirun financially. They knew full well that by pledging to protect Muhammad and his followers, they were challenging the whole of Arabia . We know that they realized that, because one of them stood up and warned the others just before they pledged.
Are there many of us today who are willing to help our fellow Muslims if there is any sort of risk involved? I’m afraid that where we are living comfortably, too many of us don’t want to “get our hands dirty” or get involved.
Another great thing about the Ansar. Before they became Muslim, they were divided into two tribes, Aws and Khazrah. And I mean divided, frequently at war with each other. Yet when they accepted Islam, they were able to overcome those differences and unite under Muhammad’s leadership. No more “my dad can beat your dad.” These people were serious in their devotion to Islam.
Today we see too many of us divided over minor issues—even ones as petty as the style of each other’s clothes or the length of veil or beard. Or we take an issue on which there is not unanimous consensus and let that be the basis by which we judge others. Rather than looking at the 90 percent on which we agree, we focus on the 10 percent on which we disagree. Thus we make no progress, always squabbling over petty details while our enemies continue to mow us down (literally or figuratively), drain our coffers, humiliate and debilitate us.
Where are the Ansar?
When my husband and I visited Madinah some years ago, I commented to our host that I was disappointed that the Prophet’s house and original mosque had not been preserved as a museum. I would have liked to see the simple way he lived. (I can see it now—an Arab Williamstown with the reconstructed or preserved buildings, the main part of each room roped off, all the artifacts left “just the way the owner left it,” employees in period costumes, $20 admission.) Our host replied that, first of all, the mud brick they used back then didn’t last long, so there was no way to preserve it. And that that was not in the spirit of Islam, Islam was for progress.
Well, yes, we should be progressing materially, while not letting that become our be-all end-all. In fact, the Prophet’s main concerns in Madinah were not for the economic revival or the pursuit of wealth, but simply that the Muslims might be safe and secure—able to walk the streets without being hassled or molested—and free to worship.
As the beginning of another Hijri year arrives, we need to take stock of where we stand as individuals and as an Ummah. In the West we are facing more restrictions on our freedom of religion, especially our right to dress in accordance with our religion. As a repercussion of 9/11, in some places we are still assaulted, harassed, or unjustly treated by civilians and police alike. In other parts of the world most of us suffer, some worse than others, under dictatorships by “Muslims” who torture, maim, and kill those who strive to enact Shari`ah again.
There are enough of us world wide who are suffering as the Muslims of Makkah did—sometimes worse—but the question remains, where can we go that’s better? And where are the Ansar to help us?

Bringing Up Good Members of the Muslim Ummah: A Meritorious Task

Auzubillahi minas syaitanir rajim Bismillahirrahmanirrahim... Assalamualaikum... 

By Prof. Shahul Hameed, 23rd February 2005


Allah Almighty has said in the Qur’an
[O ye who believe! save yourselves and your families from a Fire whose fuel is Men and Stones.](66:6)
This verse emphasizes, among other things, the duties of parents towards their children. While considering the ways of giving the best modern education to children, many Muslim parents in their eagerness to follow the current trends forget or overlook the Guidance of Allah Most High. We must never lose sight of the fact that as Muslims our first and foremost duty is always to our Creator and Sustainer, and so we should strive our utmost to see that our children also imbibe the true spirit of Islam into their lives.
The Qur’an presents us with a model parent in Luqman Al-Hakeem (may Allah be merciful to him). His words of advice to his son should be cherished as a treasure so that every father and mother can make use of them at the right time to teach their children how to grow up in Islam.
Remember that Luqman’s advice (Surah Luqman 31:12-19) includes the following precious gems:
  • To worship Allah alone, and not to fall into practices even bordering on shirk (associating others with Allah);
  • To be overflowing in love and kindness to one’s parents;
  • To be willing to abide by their wishes, except when they demand something forbidden or undesirable;
  • To believe that there is a Day of Reckoning when all humans have to account before Allah the All-Powerful, for all their thoughts and deeds;
  • To be regular and punctual in the performance of salah (obligatory prayers);
  • To enjoin good and forbid evil;
  • To be patiently persevering in the way of Allah, in the face of all odds;
  • To not strut with arrogance on earth, but rather to show humility and gentleness in speech and the dealings with others.

    The above principles carry in a nutshell, all the moral instruction and guidance any sensible parent would wish to impart to his or her children. We know that as parents we are answerable before Allah for the upbringing of our children, as we are their custodians or guardians; so we need to pay the utmost attention to our role as parents and to the tasks related to it.
    Small children are naturally more attached to their mothers than to fathers, and so the mothers have a greater role in teaching them the most basic things like eating habits, proper ways of dressing, respecting the elders, and such other good manners. They should also enlighten their children with stories of the prophets and the Companions at a very early stage, so that the children grow up as young Muslims proud of a great tradition.


In fact, the role of women at home is not sufficiently appreciated by men, even in this so-called enlightened age. Many great men and women of the future have been given a proper sense of direction and destination by the insightful admonitions and guidance of mothers. Often when we try to assess the level of development a great nation has attained, we forget the great and noble contributions made by women as mothers, through their influence on the impressionable psyche of world’s greatest men and women in their childhood. The influence of the father, if any, is often secondary; and this is a fact indicated by our Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him) when he said in a well-known hadith that a person should be three times more indebted to the mother than to the father:
Abu Hurayrah (may Allah be pleased with him) related that a man came to the Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him) and asked, "O Messenger of Allah, which person of all the people is best entitled to kind treatment and good companionship from me?" He answered, "Your mother." The man asked, "And then?" He said, "Your mother." "And after her?" He said, "Your mother." “And after her?" The Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) said, "Your father." (Al-Bukhari and Muslim)

Similarly there is another saying of the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) reported by Mu`awiya ibn Jahima. He said that his father approached Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him) and said, "I intend going on jihad. I seek your advice." The Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) inquired, "Is your mother alive?" He answered, "Yes." The Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) said, "Go and serve her, for Paradise lies beneath the feet of mothers" (Ahmad, An-Nasa’i, Al-Bayhaqi).
Is this saying of the Prophet relevant to some modern mothers who delegate many of the duties of motherhood to nurses or other surrogates? Not likely. Mothers should ponder over the significance of this hadith and try to live up to the great tradition of the noble wives of the Prophet, who are given the title of “Mothers of the Believers,” to merit the honor bestowed on mothers by him in the above hadith.
The duties of fathers are similar. But unfortunately in many Muslim cultures, the father relegates the task of parenting to the periphery of his immediate concerns, and he is not usually seen to be much interested in the onerous job of overseeing the moral training and education of his children. This, I think, is one of the reasons for the educational backwardness of Muslim societies. To a great extent this sort of negligence is dependent on the unbalanced religious education provided in our countries, also.

The solution, apparently, is an immediate overhauling of the educational system with a view to attaining the right balance between the religious and secular areas of education. This is a crucially important reform, which, I think, is overdue in most Muslim countries.

10 ADEGAN TAK LOGIK DALAM DRAMA TV TEMPATAN

Auzubillahi minas syaitanir rajim Bismillahirrahmanirrahim... Assalamualaikum...

Untuk renungan bersama


1. Seorang lelaki berjalan menuju ke pondok telefon dan memasukkan syiling. Kemudian dia mendail nombor yang hendah dihubungi. Setelah sahaja menekan nombor, tidak sampai dua saat dia sudah berkata... Hello. Satu adegan yang tidak logik sedangkan talian telefon memerlukan masa lebih kurang lima saat untuk disambung. Belum dicampur lagi masa yang diperlukan oleh si penjawab bangun, berjalan dan menjawab panggilan. Adegan tidak logik ini memang wujud dalam drama tempatan melayu sejak dahulu hingga kini.

2. Dalam drama bersiri Gerak Khas, sebelum babak perbualan di pejabat polis, kamera fokus diluar ibu pejabat polis dimana terdapat dua anggota polis wanita berjalan seiringan keluar dan masuk... Dua anggota polis berkenaan muncul hampir setiap siri drama tersebut dengan gaya seperti orang berkawat malas.

3. Kebanyakkan filem seram tempatan memaparkan banyak adegan menjerit. Pengarah filem tersebut lupa bahawa sebenarnya penontonlah yang perlu menjerit ketakutan, bukannya pelakon.

4. Jika anda orang utara, pastinya anda meluat dan menyampah bila melihat pelakon-pelakon yang cuba berlakon dan bercakap loghat utara. Ini kerana mereka fikir mereka boleh membawa watak orang utara. Pada hakikatnya tidak.

5. Dalam drama melayu, jika ada babak perbualan antara seorang wanita cina dengan ahli keluarganya, perbualan tersebut dalam bahasa melayu!!! Bukannya bahasa cina. Tetapi dalam drama cina pula, babak perbualan antara wanita melayu dengan ahli keluarganya adalah dalam bahasa melayu juga....

6. Ayat yang sering digunakan dalam drama bersiri Gerak Khas.... "Tuan ada baca akhbar semalam?" .

7. Satu babak dalam drama bersiri slot Samarinda... Seorang lelaki bekerja di pejabatnya... Tiba-tiba handphonenya berbunyi.. Handphone yang digunakan adalah jenis Nokia yang mengunakan ringtone polifonik tetapi bunyi yang kita dengar adalah bunyi handphone biasa (monofonik).

8. Babak ini yang kelakar... Seorang pelakon memberitahu rakannya bahawa dia hendak menulis email kepada seseorang. Dia kemudiannya duduk di hadapan komputer dan mula menaip. Kamera yang ketika itu fokus pada monitor jelas menunjukkan pelakon berkenaan melulis email menggunakan Microsoft Word!!!.

9. Dalam satu adegan dalam sebuah filem, satu babak tembak-menembak telah berlaku diantara polis dengan penjahat. Pihak polis menggunakan sebuah kereta Mitsubishi Lancer (evo berapa tak ingat) sebagai perisai dan berlindung di balik kereta berkenaan. Polis secara berterusan dihujani berpuluh-puluh peluru dari penjahat... Tetapi kereta tersebut hanya kena satu das sahaja.

10. Semua filem seram karya penerbit tempatan akan berakhir dengan mimpi semata-mata. Anda tak perlu lagi ke panggung wayang... (Jika ada filem seram baru) kerana kesudahannya sudah anda ketahui, hanyalah mimpi. Ini adalah garis panduan yang telah ditetapkan oleh Lembaga Penapisan Filem....

Empat Golongan Lelaki Ditarik Wanita

Seseorang wanita itu apabila di yaumal alkhirat akan menarik empat
golongan lelaki bersamanya ke dalam neraka? Na'uzubillah, artikel
ini bukan untuk memperkecilkan wanita tetapi sebaliknya iaitu
supaya kaum lelaki memainkan peranannya dengan hak & saksama serta
berwaspada akan tanggung-jawab yang kita pikul!

PERTAMA - AYAHNYA

Apabila seseorang yngg bergelar ayah tidak memperdulikan anak-anak
perempuannya di dunia. Dia tidak memberikan segala keperluan agama
seperti mengajar solat, mengaji & sebagainya. Dia memperbiarkan anak-
anak perempuannya tidak menutup aurat, tidak cukup kalau dengan
hanya memberi kemewahan dunia sahaja maka dia akan ditarik oleh
anaknya.

KEDUA - SUAMINYA

Apabila sang suami tidak memperdulikan tindak tanduk isterinya.
Bergaul bebas di pejabat, memperhiaskan diri bukan untuk suami tapi
untuk pandangan kaum lelaki yang bukan mahram. Apabila suami mendiam
diri walaupun dia seorang alim seperti solat tidak tangguh, puasa
tidak tinggal maka dia akan ditarik oleh isterinya.

KETIGA ABANG-ABANGNYA

Apabila ayahnya sudah tiada, tanggungjawab menjaga maruah wanita
jatuh ke pundak abang-abangnya. Jikalau mereka hanya mementing
keluarganya sahaja dan adik perempuannya dibiar melencong dari
ajaran ISLAM tunggulah tarikan adiknya di akhirat kelak.

KEEMPAT - ANAK LELAKINYA

Apabila seorang anak tidak menasihati seorang ibu perihal kelakuan
yang haram dari Islam, bila ibu membuat kemungkaran pengumpat,
mengata & sebagainya maka anak itu akan disoal dan
dipertangungjawabkan di akhirat kelak nantikan tarikan ibunya maka
kita lihat bertapa hebatnya tarikan wanita bukan sahaja di dunia
malah di akhirat pun tarikannya begitu hebat maka kaum lelaki yang
bergelar ayah/suami/abang atau anak harus memainkan peranan mereka
yang sebenar dan tidak silap.

Firman ALLAH SWT:-

"HAI ANAK ADAM PERIHARALAH DIRI KAMU SERTA AHLIMU DARI API NERAKA DI
MANA BAHAN PEMBAKARNYA IALAH MANUSIA,JIN DAN BATU-BATU
..."
Hai wanita, kasihlah ayah anda, suami anda,abang-abang anda serta
anak-anak lelaki anda kesihankanlah mereka dan diri kamu sendiri,
jalankan perintah ALLAH S.W.T bersungguh dan dengan ikhlas.

Akhir kalam, marilah kita berdoa agar kita semua terselamat dari
ditarik dan tertarik oleh mana-mana pihak.

Harga seseorang muslim adalah sangat berharga. ALLAH S.W.T nilaikan
seseorang muslim dengan SYURGA, semua kaum muslim dijamin masuk
syurga (sesiapa yang mengucap kalimah tauhid) dengan itu janganlah
kita membuang atau tidak mengendah janji dan peluang yang ALLAH
S.W.T berikan pada kita.

Auzubillahi minas syaitanir rajim Bismillahirrahmanirrahim... Assalamualaikum...


A couple of redneck hunters are out in
the woods when one of them falls to the ground. 
He doesn't seem to be breathing
and his eyes are rolled back in his head.

The other redneck starts to panic, then
whips out his cell phone and calls 911.

He frantically blurts out to the operator,
"O my gawd! Help! My friend just died.
He's Dead! What can I do?"

The operator, trying to calm him says, 
"Take it easy. I can help. 
Just listen to me and follow my instructions. 
First, lets make sure he's dead."
There's a short pause, and then the operator hears a loud gun shot!!!

Misteri IRC


Auzubillahi minas syaitanir rajim Bismillahirrahmanirrahim... Assalamualaikum...


Kisah ini berlaku sekitar tahun 1999........

Shahirah menunggu seperti biasa. Lazimnya, dia akan bertemu dengan Hazlan tepat jam 12 malam dalam irc[chatting]. Itulah kawan baiknya sejak dia mengenali dunia chatting di IRC. Pada mulanya dia memang kurang mempercayai pengunjung-pengunjung IRC kerana mereka boleh menyamar bila-bila masa tetapi Hazlan lain pula. Dia memang jujur dan berterus-terang dalam banyak hal. Lagipun, mereka belum pernah bertemu cuma kerap bercakap melalui telefon sekiranya tidak berpeluang bertemu di IRC.
Namun, malam ini berbeza, Hazlan tidak muncul. Dia sering menggunakan nama 'hensemboy' manakala Shahirah pula menggunakan nama 'nurheart'. Namun, malam ini nama tersebut tidak muncul. Shahirah kecewa kerana Hazlan mungkir janji mahu bertemu dengannya di IRC.
Shahirah meninggalkan kaf! e siber itu dengan hati yang sedih. Selang beberapa malam, Shahirah kembali mengunjungi IRC. Hajat utamanya ialah mahu mencari Hazlan kerana sudah beberapa hari Hazlan tidak pernah menghubunginya jauh sekali memohon maaf kerana gagal memenuhi janjinya beberapa malam lepas.
Hampir sejam Shahirah berbual dengan rakan-rakannya yang lain, pada mereka juga Shahirah bertanya mengenai Hazlan namun mereka mengatakan sudah lama Hazlan tidak masuk IRC.
Apabila hampir jam 12.30 tengah malam, nama samaran 'hensemboy' muncul.
Shahirah tanpa membuang masa terus menegur Hazlan.

nurheart : Lan...
hensemboy : Ira...maaf saya tak dapat masuk malam itu.
nurheart : Awak ke mana? Kenapa tak call saya?
hensemboy : Maaf...saya tak sempat menghubungi awak. Maaf...
nurheart : Tak kisahlah. Awak sihat?

Pertanyaan Shahirah tergantung di situ. Hazlan tidak menjawab pertanyaannya dan tiba-tiba senyap. ! Shahirah menunggu dengan sabar namun tetap Hazlan tidak menjawab pertanyaan dan panggilan Shahirah. Dengan rasa sedih Shahirah meninggalkan IRC dan pulang dengan perasaan hampa.
"Kenapa dengan kau ni, Ira?" tanya Samirah, kawan baiknya sewaktu Shahirah melangkah lemah ke biliknya malam itu. "Aku tak faham betul. Kenapa Hazlan dingin dengan aku? Apa yang telah aku lakukan terhadap dia?
"Jangan percaya sangat dengan pengunjung IRC tu. Mereka boleh menyamar bila-bila masa saja. Aku dah kata jangan terlalu rapat nanti kau kecewa,"kata Samirah. "Aku berbual dengan dia malam ini tapi dia tiba-tiba hilang. Aku risaulah dengan dia, Sam," katanya sambil memegang tangan Samirah. Samirah mendiamkan diri seketika. Sejurus itu dia menyarankan agar Shahirah menelefon rumah Hazlan. Itu mungkin boleh melegakan perasaannya yang gundah kerana sikap pelik Hazlan.
Shahirah bersetuju dengan pendapat Samirah. Dia! akan menghubungi Hazlan esok selepas dia pulang dari kelas malam.
Pada malam esok selepas tamat kelas malamnya, Shahirah telah singgah ke Kafe siber. Hajat hatinya mahu berbual dengan Hazlan sekiranya dia masuk IRC malam ini. Sekurang-kurangnya dia dapat bertemu dengan Hazlan sebelum dia menghubungi rumahnya malam ini. Hajat Shahirah tercapai apabila Hazlan masuk IRC.
Shahirah tersenyum gembira apabila Hazlan telah menegurnya.

hensemboy : Ira...awak marah saya ke?
nurheart : Siapalah saya mahu marah awak, Lan. Kenapa awak macam mahu tidak mahu berbual dengan saya?
hensemboy : Saya bukan lagi seperti dulu, Ira. Tapi, perasaan saya masih sama terhadap awak. Saya sedih nanti kita tidak dapat berbual lagi seperti dulu.
nurheart : Kenapa?
hensemboy : Saya kemalangan malam yang saya berjanji masuk IRC mahu bertemu dengan awak, ingat?
nurheart : Awak teruk ke?
hensemboy : Saya cedera parah. Teruk sangat sampai....saya hilang darah yang banyak...saya tercampak di dalam semak dan saya cuba cari jalan keluar. Dengan rasa sakit yang amat sangat, saya tertinggal di tepi semak batu 6.
nurheart : Siapa yang membantu awak? Sekarang awak di mana?
hensemboy : Tidak ada siapa. Saya masih di sini...menanti orang membantu saya.
nurheart : Maksud awak?
hensemboy : Saya sudah meninggal dunia, Ira. Tolonglah cari mayat saya. Sempurnakan saya, Ira. Tolonglah.

Shahirah tersentak dan lantas meninggalkan komputernya dengan rasa takut yang amat sangat. Dia berlari menuju ke pondok telefon berdekatan dan menghubungi rumah Hazlan. Memang Hazlan seorang yang suka bergurau tetapi gurauannya malam ini memang menyeramkan Terdengar deringan telefon dan satu suara wanita menjawabnya.
Apabila ditanya, dia merupakan kakak Hazlan. Setelah memperkenalkan dirinya, dengan lembut Shahirah bertanya mengenai Hazlan. Tiba-tiba suara wanita itu menangis. Katanya, sudah empat hari Hazlan tidak pulang ke rumah.
Laporan polis sudah dibuat namun masih belum ditemui. Dengan suara yang bergetar, Shahirah berkata kepada kakak Hazlan supaya mencari Hazlan di dalam semak Batu 6. Tanpa menunggu lama, Shahirah terus meletak gagang. Airmatanya mencurah-curah bercampur sedih dan takut.
Keesokan harinya, kisah Hazlan muncul di muka depan akhbar. Mayat seorang siswa berumur 25 tahun ditemui di dalam semak kawasan Batu 6 dalam keadaan cedera parah dan mulai busuk. Motor yang ditunggangnya tercampak ke dalam gaung. Kemalangan itu ditafsir sebagai langgar lari. Shahirah melipat akhbar tersebut. Dia berjanji tidak akan mengunjungi IRC lagi. Dalam diam dia mengakui Hazlan memang menyayanginya kerana dalam keadaan begitu dia masih cuba mahu berbual dengannya walaupun dengan memberitahu berita yang sed! ih bahawa dia sudah tiada lagi.

p/s: Cerita ini benar dan kawan saya (Sungai Besar, Selangor) masih lagi simpan LOG file perbualan dengan siMATI sekitar 1999...."Kita doakan agar ROH nya ditempatkan bersama2 orang beriman......AMIN"

The way I look at things

The way I look at things


I can't say that
Making mistakes is the only way to learn
Perhaps we learn from mistakes......................

I can't tell
How sorrow and laughter relate
Perhaps they never come alone..................

I can't define 
What love really means
Perhaps love is an enigma .............

I can't assessThe impact of time and love
Perhaps for those who are in love
Time is eternity.............

I can't appraise What love teaches us
Perhaps love diminishes anger
One of the sixth vices of human beings..............

To Another You Have Become


To Another You Have Become

.....this goes straight to YOU......

Like Spanish moss upon my face
Your hair played upon my ears
Like the salty water of vast oceans
Washes upon a an empty shell

The strokes of a long dried brush
Reminds me of you, women of my times
When the fruit bats hit the ripe dates
While chasing an evening moth

Which would never spring new wings
And open them ample, to soak the sun
As you did with your own mind
Reach for yourself through my time

Oh, the times have changes, I know
But I still think of your long hair around my ears
And the sound my inner thoughts often make
When of you I dress my years

In the colours of the times
You took out of my days

A Successful Relationship

A boy was born to a couple after 11 years of marriage. They were a loving couple and the boy was the
apple of their eye.

When the boy was around two years old, one morning the husband saw a medicine bottle open. He was late for work so he asked his wife to cap the bottle and keep it in the cupboard. His wife, preoccupied in the kitchen, totally forgot the matter. The boy saw the bottle and playfully went to the bottle and fascinated by its color, drank it all.

It happened to be a poisonous medicine meant for adults in small dosages. When the child collapsed, the
mother hurried him to the hospital, where he died.

The mother was stunned. She was terrified how to face her husband. When the distraught father came to
the hospital and saw the dead child, he looked at his wife and uttered just four words.


QUESTIONS:

1. What were the four words?

2. What is the implication of this story?

Scroll down to read....











ANSWER:

The husband just said, "I Love You Darling."

The husband's totally unexpected reaction is proactive behavior. The child is dead. He can never be brought
back to life. There is no point in finding fault with themother. Besides, if only he had taken time to keep the bottle away, this would not have happened.

No one is to be blamed. She had lost her only child. What she needed at that moment was consolation and
sympathy from the husband. That is what he gave her.

If everyone can look at life with this kind of perspective, there would be much fewer problems in the world.

Take off all your envies, jealousies, unforgiving attitude, selfishness, and fears. And you will find things
are actually not as difficult as you think.

Triangle of life: Safety tips in case of earthquake


Something to share....

VERY RELEVANT IN LIGHT OF RECENT TRAGEDY!

EXTRACT FROM DOUG COPP'S ARTICLE ON THE "TRIANGLE OF LIFE", Edited by Larry Linn for MAA Safety Committee brief on 4/13/04.

My name is Doug Copp. I am the Rescue Chief and Disaster Manager of the American Rescue Team International (ARTI), the world's most experienced rescue team. The information in this article will save lives in an earthquake.

I have crawled inside 875 collapsed buildings, worked with rescue teams from 60 countries, founded rescue teams in several countries, and I am a member of many rescue teams from many countries. I was the United Nations expert in Disaster Mitigation for two years. I have worked at every major disaster in the world since 1985, except for simultaneous disasters.

In 1996 we made a film which proved my survival methodology to be correct. The Turkish Federal Government, City of Istanbul, University of Istanbul Case Productions and ARTI cooperated to film this practical, scientific test. We collapsed a school and a home with 20 mannequins inside. Ten mannequins did "duck and cover," and ten mannequins I used in my "triangle of life" survival method. After the simulated earthquake collapse we crawled through the rubble and entered the building to film and document the results. The film, in which I practiced my survival techniques under directly observable, scientific conditions, relevant to building collapse, showed there would have been zero percent survival for those doing duck and cover. There would likely have been 100 percent survivability for people using my method of the "triangle of life." This film has been seen by millions of viewers on television in Turkey and the rest of Europe, and it was seen in the USA, Canada and Latin America on the TV program Real TV.

The first building I ever crawled inside of was a school in Mexico City during the 1985 earthquake. Every child was under their desk. Every child was crushed to the thickness of their bones. They could have survived by lying down next to their desks in the aisles. It was obscene, unnecessary and I wondered why the children were not in the aisles. I didn't at the time know that the children were told to hide under something.

Simply stated, when buildings collapse, the weight of the ceilings falling upon the objects or furniture inside crushes these objects, leaving a space or void next to them. This space is what I call the "triangle of life". The larger the object, the stronger, the less it will compact. The less the object compacts, the larger the void, the greater the probability that the person who is using this void for safety will not be injured. The next time you watch collapsed buildings, on television, count the "triangles" you see formed. They are everywhere. It is the most common shape, you will see, in a collapsed building. They are everywhere.

TEN TIPS FOR EARTHQUAKE SAFETY

1) Most everyone who simply "ducks and covers" WHEN BUILDINGS COLLAPSE are crushed to death. People who get under objects, like desks or cars, are crushed.

2) Cats, dogs and babies often naturally curl up in the fetal position. You should too in an earthquake. It is a natural safety/survival instinct. You can survive in a smaller void. Get next to an object, next to a sofa, next to a large bulky object that will compress slightly but leave a void next to it.

3) Wooden buildings are the safest type of construction to be in during an earthquake. Wood is flexible and moves with the force of the earthquake. If the wooden building does collapse, large survival voids are created. Also, the wooden building has less concentrated, crushing weight. Brick buildings will break into individual bricks. Bricks will cause many injuries but less squashed bodies than concrete slabs.

4) If you are in bed during the night and an earthquake occurs, simply roll off the bed. A safe void will exist around the bed. Hotels can achieve a much greater survival rate in earthquakes, simply by posting a sign on the back of the door of every room telling occupants to lie down on the floor, next to the bottom of the bed during an earthquake.

5) If an earthquake happens and you cannot easily escape by getting out the door or window, then lie down and curl up in the fetal position next to a sofa, or large chair.

6) Most everyone who gets under a doorway when buildings collapse is killed. How? If you stand under a doorway and the doorjamb falls forward or backward you will be crushed by the ceiling above. If the door jam falls sideways you will be cut in half by the doorway. In either case, you will be killed!

7) Never go to the stairs. The stairs have a different "moment of frequency" (they swing separately from the main part of the building). The stairs and remainder of the building continuously bump into each other until structural failure of the stairs takes place. The people who get on stairs before they fail are chopped up by the stair treads - horribly
mutilated. Even if the building doesn't collapse, stay away from the stairs. The stairs are a likely part of the building to be damaged. Even if the stairs are not collapsed by the earthquake, they may collapse later when overloaded by fleeing people. They should always be checked for safety, even when the rest of the building is not damaged.

8) Get Near the Outer Walls Of Buildings Or Outside Of Them If Possible - It is much better to be near the outside of the building rather than the interior. The farther inside you are from the outside perimeter of the building the greater the probability that your escape route will be blocked;

9) People inside of their vehicles are crushed when the road above falls in an earthquake and crushes their vehicles; which is exactly what happened with the slabs between the decks of the Nimitz Freeway. The victims of the San Francisco earthquake all stayed inside of their vehicles. They were all killed. They could have easily survived by getting out and sitting or lying next to their vehicles. Everyone killed would have survived if they had been able to get out of their cars and sit or lie next to them. All the crushed cars had voids 3 feet high next to them, except for the cars that had columns fall directly across them.

10) I discovered, while crawling inside of collapsed newspaper offices and other offices with a lot of paper, that paper does not compact. Large voids are found surrounding stacks of paper.
