December, the month of great joy!; Cleaning our environment, Cleaning our hearts too


(BY: PROF. ALI T. YACUB) “And the angel said unto Mary; O Mary; “God gives you good news of a word from Him, whose name shall be the Messiah, Jesus, son of Mary honoured in this world and the Hereafter, and one of those brought near to God. He shall speak to the people from his cradle and in maturity, and shall be of the righteous. She said” O my Lord! How shall I have a son when no man has touched me? He said: “Even so: God creates what He will, when he decrees a thing He says to it, “Be” and it is.

—— (Holy Qur’an, 3:43-47)

“You shall find the nearest among men in love to the believers (to be) those who say: we are Christians “became there are among them priests, monks, and because they are not arrogant. When they listen to that which has been revealed unto the Messenger, you see their eyes overflow with tears because their recognition of the Truth “

——(Holy Qur’an, 5:82 and 83)


Mary (the Blessed Mother of Jesus) is the only woman who is mentioned by name in the (Holy) Qur’an, there is an entire chapter in the Qur’an entitled “Maryam”. She is mentioned 34 times in the Qur’an much more than in the Bible.

As Christendom prepares for the advent of Christmas the Islamic World, anticipates  with joyful expectation because Rabbil-Anwal, is the birth month of the Holy Prophet (from December 23, 2014- January 20, 2015). The Holy  Prophet Muhammad was born according to Islamic tradition the 12th of Rabbil Awwal (the year of the Elephant), thus, indeed, December is a month of Great Joy for 2014 (for Muslims and Christians) living in solidarity in Zmaboanga with good reasons, no other place, except, in this noble city.



The city is still dirty, littered with all sorts of trash! Why? Observers have noted, there is no system in cleaning our downtown area unlike in other cities  and places a system was initiated, the result is cleanliness!

An example, when the city was administering the CR at the Plaza Pershing the said CR was the dirtiest CR in town, now is the cleanest. The private contractor has a system.

Back to the City, if an Ordinance is enacted specifying how and when the cleaning is done, then we will see some changes in the cleanliness of the city.

For instance, business establishment should be required to clean the front of their stores, offices, this include the vendors  plying their trade on the sidewalk,  to clean their areas then we can see cleanliness everyday.

This boils down to system. My God! We can innovate in doing things for the public good? #
