Despite all the false notions we have assimilated during our societal experiences, the Divine Truth remains and it’s up to us to rekindle its dormant flame within. We were blessed enough to have had the coming of Prophets (as) and the Divine Message they left us with to help in our inner realization, the ultimate accomplishment of life!
On that note, I’d like share verses of the Holy Qur’an which elaborate on the position of mankind in the Universe. Reflecting upon this passage can truly be empowering as it helps us understand the meaning of our existence, the untold Generosity that nurtures it and our authentic identity, enjoined by The Sole Authority: The Creator.
“And He committed for you the night and the day, and the sun and the moon, and the stars are committed by His command. In that are signs for a people who comprehend. And what He has placed for you on Earth in various colors. In that are signs for a people who remember. And He is the One who committed the sea, that you may eat from it a tender meat, and that you may extract from it pearls that you wear. And you see the ships flowing through it, so that you may seek from His bounty, and that you may be thankful. And He has cast into the Earth stabilizers so that it does not sway with you, and rivers, and paths, perhaps you will be guided. And landmarks, and by the stars they use to guide. Is the One who creates the same as one who does not create? Will you not remember? And if you count the blessings of God you will not be able to fathom them. God is Forgiving, Merciful. And God knows what you hide and what you declare. As for those they call on besides God, they do not create anything, but are themselves created!”
