DAHWUL ARDH – 25TH ZILQ’AD [sun 21st sept 2014] – The Day when The Earth was Spread for the benefit of Mankind

Almighty Allah in Surat al-Nazi’aat 79:30 to 33

And the earth, He expanded it after that. He brought forth from it its water and its pasturage.

And the mountains, He made them firm. A provision for you and for your cattle.

what is Dahwul Ardh?

The phrase “Dahwul Ardh” literally means “The spread of the earth”

The day when the earth was spread for the benefit of mankind

In another tradition it is reported from our Prophet pbuh that

The first Rahmah & blessing from Allah swt descended on this very day

It is also reported on the authority of Imam Ali bin Moosa Ar Raza (A.S.) that

On that day the two distinguished Prophets of Allah

Prophet Ibrahim (A.S.) and Prophet Isa (A.S.) were born

Hence an important Day indeed for acceptance of our Hajaats

This day is one of those four days, which are distinguished for the excellence of fasting.

According to a tradition of the Holy Prophet (s):

Whosoever fasts on this day, his fast would equal 70 years of fasting.

Many a’amaal of this day have also been mentioned in various books.

How is Dahwul Ardh applicable in the present era & how must we celebrate it?

Islam was not revealed for a certain time and to a particular people. It’s laws and teachings apply for all ages to come.

We should try to appreciate this vital truth and behold the “universality” of the religious teachings.

Our duty in every age when this Earth Day is celebrated should be to

Ponder over this God-given blessings, The reason why it was created,

Whether it is utilized for the purpose it was created for,

The crisis it faces at present, The remedy for such crisis, etc.

This would really make the celebration a celebration of true faith and concern,

and a celebration of thanking the All-Merciful Creator who created the world for man’s good.

Why is the earth created?

The earth is created as a preparing ground & means for human perfection and

to understand the purity of the heart and soul.

And in chapter 7, verse 10, Almighty Allah says:

“Indeed We made you to live in the earth and made therein for you the means of livelihood;

(but) little is it that you thank.”

In this verse, “little is it that you thank” should not merely be taken as “verbal thanks,”
the reality of “shukr” is to use the gift for the purpose it was created.

May this day bring Peace, Happiness and Prosperity in Your Lives.
