What is Allah’s gift to humans? What is the the best gift to muslim?
The person who contemplates the above-mentioned issues understands that Allah Almighty has bestowed a tremendous wealth for contemplation.
One should be grateful once again when he contemplates the reason for this wealth. Allah has created numerous opportunities for contemplation which is a key for belief and worship opening the gates for man’s peace and salvation. This is one of Allah’s greatest helps to His servants.
It is Allah’s destiny and creation to give the world to man’s service as a safe haven protecting him from all kinds of impossibilities and dangers.
It is expressed in a verse:
“And He has subjected to you, as from Him, all that is in the heavens and on earth: Behold, in that are Signs indeed for those who reflect.” (al-Jathiya, 45: 13)
The servant should both increase his contemplation in the presence of this creation and also give thanks to Allah for all these blessings…
This reminds us that the earth has been given to the disposal of man, created as a place for his trial and a means for his contemplation. Allah Almighty always invites us to contemplate.
Center of the world is an ocean of fire and the sun in our sky is another and greater ocean of fire… Allah Almighty grants us a cool and safe life between these two fires. When man disciplines his soul elegantly between the fires of self and the Satan and progresses regarding the knowledge of Allah, he saves himself from their harm.
Do they not look at the Camels, how they are made?
And at the Sky, how it is raised high?
And at the Mountains, how they are fixed firm?
And at the Earth, how it is spread out? (al-Ghashiya, 88: 17-20)
The creation of camel is in accordance with the circumstances of the desert where it lives. Allah Almighty created beings at the poles, in the deepest parts of the oceans, on the mountaintops and in the deserts. He has exhibited His art in each one of these creatures.
The air we breathe does not exist everywhere in the universe. There is about 21% oxygen in the atmosphere surrounding the world. This oxygen supply does not disappear and it is exactly the amount that we need. As oxygen is a burning gas, even one single percent excessing this amount would cause constant fires in the world.
When oxygen level drops a little down this amount, the veins swell and if it increases a little, they shrink. This is another occasion to take lessons.
We live a calm and peaceful life on the earth without being aware of it. Whereas there is an enormous ocean of fire under the ground. The fact that we are able to live on this ocean of magma which shows itself occasionally by earthquakes and volcanos is due to the existence of mountains like nails placed around the earth crust.
The universe is a kind of detailed commentary of the miracle of the Qur’an. In other words, the Qur’an is a universe formed from words, while the universe is a Qur’an with no words.
Let us contemplate about the sun, which is the continuous source of our lives by its the warmth and light.
