UANA series continue with BUANA IV, an expression of the "Environment" in which our world exists. The Environment is instrumental in the development of mankind from both physical and mental perspectives. It manifests external force gigantic in its presence - only a being as supreme as God Himself is worthy of being the creator. Its magnitude varies and can have both blessed or catastrophic results. For example, drops of rain bring with it the power of creation in the fields of agriculture but yet an amplified and prolonged shower floods humanity to death. The Environment presents itself almost in all form of elements (Earth, Wind, Water & Fire) and earned the headlines to the daily newspapers via various names: Cyclone, Typhoon, Tornado, Eartquake, Storm, Volcano Eruption, Flood, Tsunami, Avalanche, Global Warming, etc.

Environment has also been one of the key areas of knowledge for which man has learnt to appreciate over the past thousands of years and will continue to do so until the end of the world. Such gift to mankind made it possible for us to understand the world we live in from many aspects such as Geography, Astronomy, Agriculture, Meteorology, Geology, Aviation, Maritime, Chemistry, Biology, Physics, Quantum Physics, Art, Literature, Mining & Exploration, Industrialisation, Warfare and even Religion.

Man has also left behind their legacy from the application and/or the discovery of such knowledge. To name a few: Avicenna (Ibn Sinar), Algorizm (al-Khwarizmi), Neil Armstrong, Uri Gagarin, Marco Polo, Ptolemy, Admiral Cheng Ho, Eric the Viking, Christopher Columbus, Leonardo da Vinci, Stephen Hawkings, Albert Einstein, Adolf Hitler, Julius Caesar, Alexander the Great (Iskandar Dzulkarnain), Genghis Khan, Saladin (Salah Al-Din), Al Gore, Ramses, Moses (Musa p.b.u.h) and the infamous Noah (Nuh p.b.u.h) with the biggest flood of all time.
