Praise be to Allah

“Then which of the Blessings of your Lord will you both (jinns and men) deny?” (The Holy Quran – Surah Rahman – Verse Number 16)

It seems that day by day, Allah shows us His Blessings, His Bounty and His Power. And each time, it’s even more surprising, leaving you all the more awestruck. An experience as trivial as Biology practical lessons can be such a resourceful way of discovering Allah’s Infinite Power. The way He has created things, crafting each and every detail to perfection makes me wonder, how did atheism ever come into being?

You look through the eyepiece of a microscope and it’s like peeking into an undiscovered world. To the naked eye, a slide is so small and vulnerable and therein lies an even smaller specimen which you can’t even locate. But once you have focused it, the beauty of what lies before your eyes makes your head spin with wonder. In the transverse section of a root tip, He has arranged cells so perfectly, so properly aligned, in layers measured flawlessly. Especially when it is stained with a dye, it comes out so picturesque and vivid, you never want to stop gazing at it. Dividing cells are so meticulously and wisely separated from the others, His Wisdom speaks through the still artwork we can view. Even the intestine of a seemingly immaterial animal such as a rabbit has a system of these miniscule blocks mapped by Allah Himself. Indeed, each and every living thing’s anatomy has a base plan which humans can never reproduce (SubhanAllah). Surely, Allah is indeed the Omniscient and Omnipresent, as He says in the Holy Quran, “Verily, Allah is the All-Knower of everything.” (Surah Mujadila – Verse Number 7)

Each and every human being has his or her own unique set of fingerprints, isn’t that astounding, how wonderful and fascinating Allah’s miracles are? He has created this world and the entire Universe so impeccably with parallels symbolising His Greatness. The way Muslims perform Tawaaf (circumlocutions) around the Holy Ka’abah is so significantly representative of how the planets revolve around the Sun. His Wisdom and Omniscience is surely Unmatchable. How beautifully Allah puts it Himself in the Holy Quran, “And if whatever trees upon the earth were pens and the sea [was ink], replenished thereafter by seven [more] seas, the words of Allah would not be exhausted. Indeed, Allah is Exalted in Might and Wise.” (Surah Luqman – Verse Number 27)

Praise be to Allah.
