What forces me to further think about Allah’s creations is the fact that there are billions of people in this world, and trillions of animal and plant species, all of which are the creation of Allah swt. All the places in this world that we travel to, from East to West and North to South, different kinds of people, the various species of animals and nature’s secrets are all the creation of the Almighty. This world is a treasure that Allah swt has given to us to live in, discover and learn from. Races are broken down into various cultures and within cultures there are many sects, but what unites us all is that we are Allah’s creation. The poor, the rich, the proud and the humble are all innately the same creation to the creator.
Allah swt has blessed us with endless resources and a world of treasures to utilize and discover, and above all, appreciate. It is difficult to comprehend how anyone could deny the existence of the Almighty, let alone not praise Him endlessly. My heart could not fail to say SubhanAllah whenever I looked down from the plane and around my new surroundings.
To end off, I’ll quote an aaya from the Quran, Sura Ar-Rahman, which summarizes my feelings beautifully, “Then which of the favours of your Lord will you deny?” (55:13). This reiterate s how much we have to be grateful for, and reminds us of the greatness of Allah swt.
