Back To Nature

             Don't we feel amazed upon witnessing the mesmerizing rainbows appear to decorate the sky high right after the long-lasting rain? Or, the ceaseless crystal clear waterfalls cascade down the stream that serve the spectacular view for the eyes? Yet, the millions of glittering stars that beautify the gloomy night we observe? What could we ponder about all of these occasions? Do they happen by coincidences as some claim they do?
            Isn’t there any of our heartbeats struck to think and feel that the occurrences have more to be revealed? Definitely they are destined not by coincidences. Instead, they are ruled by The Most Powerful Creator, and there is no other else except Allah The Exalted. Throwing a glance towards the microscopic creatures that are unseen through the naked eyes, to the range of the gargantuan universe and galaxies that have more to be explored, how could we explained that if we believed not in Allah?
             Allah said in the Quran, “Your Guardian-Lord is Allah, Who created the heavens and the earth in six days, and is firmly established on the throne (of authority) : He draweth the night as a veil o’er the day, each seeking the other in rapid succession : He created the sun, the moon, and the stars, (all) governed by laws under His command. Is it not His to create and to govern? Blessed be Allah, the Cherisher and Sustainer of the world!” (7:54)
           Allah, The Almighty through His Messenger, the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH), sent His Speech (the Quran) to be read, understood and practiced in every aspect of lives to be a complete Muslim. While some of anti-Islamic people spread the slender by stating that the Quran is not the Words of Allah and deny the truth of it, not even one of them could reveal any single mistake in the Quran as they claim. This proves the validity of the Quran. Latest and updated studies on processes taking place in human body for instance, tend to unravel the Signs Allah wants Muslims to think and study from the Quran. There are numerous to mention. 

Let’s take a look at this example. How is human created? Biologically, a sperm from a father would fuse with an ovum of a mother to form a zygote that would grow passing through some marvellous stages before turning out to be a complete human being. No one except Allah The Exalted could interfere in the process. All of these including many others are subject to the norms that are tied with them (that Allah has decided). If Allah doesn’t exist to rule and control them, perhaps there would be inconsistent interchange between days and nights, some stars would go out of their orbit, the sun wouldn’t splash its heat and light, finally world would be destroyed and our lives end in tragic way.
         We as Muslims are always being encouraged to observe the Signs that Allah has shown especially from the nature. The earth, the sun, the moon, the rivers, the seas and others have more secrets to be unfolded. A good Muslim is always trying to improve his faith (tajdidul iman) and one of the way (wasilah) is by ‘Back To The Nature’. Wallahua’lam.
