In the beginning God populated the earth with broccoli and cauliflower and spinach, green and yellow and red vegetables of all kinds, so Man and Woman would live long and healthy lives.

Then using God's bountiful gifts, Satan created Ben and Jerry's and Krispy Creme. And Satan said, "You want chocolate with that?" And man said "Yes!" and woman said, "I'll have another with sprinkles." And lo, they gained 10 pounds.

And God created the healthful yogurt that woman might keep the figure that man found so fair. And Satan brought forth white flour from the wheat, and sugar from the cane, and combined them. And woman went from size 2 to size 6.

So God said, "Try my fresh green salad." And Satan presented Thousand-Island Dressing and garlic toast on the side. And man and woman unfastened their belts following the repast.

God then said, "I have sent you heart healthy vegetables and olive oil in which to cook them." And Satan brought forth deep fried shrimp and catfish and chicken-fried steak so big it needed its own platter. And man gained more weight and his cholesterol went through the roof.

God then brought forth running shoes so that his children might lose those extra pounds. And Satan came forth with a cable TV with remote control so Man would not have to toil changing the channels. And man and woman laughed and cried before the flickering light and piled on the pounds.

Then God brought forth the potato, naturally low in fat and brimming with potassium and good nutrition. Then Satan peeled off the healthful skin and sliced the starchy center into chips and deep-fried them and added copious quantities of salt. And man put on more pounds.

God then gave lean beef so that man might consume fewer calories and still satisfy his appetite. And Satan created McDonald's and the 99-cent double cheeseburger. Then Lucifer said, "You want fries with that?" and man replied, "Yes! And super size 'em!" And Satan said "It is good." Down it with XXL coke.

And man went into cardiac arrest.

God sighed and created doctors, nureses and quadruple bypass surgery.

And Satan created HMOs, affordable insurance, deductibles, copays, waiting period, prexisting conditions, branded drugs, malpractice insurance... and so on ........

Laughing Good one Shalam,

Indeed many people forget that these 'luxeries' are killing us, and should be banned. This is only one side of the story, as we also forget all the chemicals we put on our bodies everyday with high chemical soaps and shampoos, the chemicals that get stuck in our clothes during washing, the chemicals in our foods and in our cattle and plants.

Salam

God Says We make it a test for people to see for themselves as to which of them lives a balanced life.

18:7 [We never ordained asceticism for mankind. It was something they had invented 57:27] Indeed, We have willed the earth to be pleasingly decorated. We make it a test for people to see for themselves as to which of them lives a balanced life. [18:30-31, 18:46, 67:2]

78:14 And We send down from the rainy clouds abundant water.
78:15 Thereby to bring forth grain and plant.
78:16 And gardens of dense foliage.

55:10 And (know that) He has spread out the earth for all His creatures. [Anaam = All living beings]
55:11 Wherein are fruit and palms with clusters protected in sheaths.
55:12 And grain, corn, leaves, stalks, colorful herbs, vegetables, spices, sweet-smelling plants and fragrant flowers. [The three Arabic terms used in this verse include all the meanings rendered]

16:14 And He it is Who has made the sea subservient. You eat from it tender fresh meat and take from it gems which you may wear. And on that very sea you see the ships roaming through the waves so that you might seek of His Bounty and be appreciative.

36:71 Have they never envisioned how We must have created for them of Our Handiwork, the domestic animals of which they are now masters?

36:72 And that We have made them submissive to humans so that some of them they use for riding and others they consume.

36:73 And may derive yet other benefits from them and milk to drink. Will they not, then, be grateful?


55:13 Then, O Men and women! Which Authority of your Lord will you deny?

2:168 (Declaring things Permissible or Forbidden is trying to ‘rival’ God.) O Mankind! Partake and enjoy the Lawful and decent things of the earth, and do not follow the footsteps of the Satan. Indeed, he is an open enemy to you.

Fee Amanillah
