The US sponsored United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) resolution calling for a time bound implementation of the recommendations of the Lessons Learnt and Reconciliation Commission, LLRC, was passed with 24 members in favour and 15 against which means more than half the member states were against the empire meddling in yet another non-White country.

America, the most powerful nation in known history, managed to muster only a simple majority vote despite all its political, economic, and military might.   This reflects rather negatively America’s standing in the world.  As expected Muslim countries like Qatar, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia Bangladesh, Maldives and Indonesia backed Sri Lanka to the hilt even after it became clear India was going to stab Sri Lanka in the back. The first three countries, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait and Qatar are known American stooges. And so the fact that even they defied the   US in this instance puts America in a more embarrassing position suggesting that the mighty America empire might be losing its grip on even on its supposed ‘stooges’ and consequently on world affairs.

Islam is a complete way of life and therefore teaches us good manners too. Cleanliness in Islam is given a lot of importance according to a famous Hadith which says, “Purification is half of faith.” (Muslim). It not only teaches us personal hygiene, but also cleanliness of our houses and neighborhoods.

Allah has indeed created man in the best form and granted him beauty, and so he wishes to see His slave in the best form as well. “Verily Allah is beautiful and loves beauty.” (Muslim).

The use of siwak or miswak holds great importance in Islam. Apart from keeping the body and limbs clean Islam teaches special cleanliness for the mouth in order to keep away from diseases and also to make ones breath pleasant so that it doesn’t become a cause of discomfort to others. Since teeth are the doors of our mouth they should always be clean and shinning as it adds beauty to a Muslims smile and face.
