Have we ever..

"And how many signs in the Heavens and the Earth do they pass by? Yet they turn away from them (without thinking). "
(Yusuf : 105)

Have we ever thought about the fact that we did not exist before we were conceived and then born into the world and that we have come into existence from mere nothingness?

Have we ever thought about the flowers we see by the road everyday come out of pitch black, muddy soil with fragrant smells and as colourful as they are?

Have we ever thought about how mosquitoes, which irritatingly fly around us, move their wings so fast that we are unable to see them?

Have we ever thought about how the peels of fruits such as bananas watermelons and oranges serves as wrapping of high quality, and how the fruits are packed in these wrapping so that they maintain their taste and fragrance?

Have we ever thought about the possibility that while we are asleep a sudden glazing fire could raze our home, office or city to the ground and in few moment we could lose everything of the world we possess?

Have we ever thought how life passes away very quickly, and that we will grow old and become weak, and slowly lose the beauty we possess, health we never feel grateful to have and strength we never thought to deprive?

Have we ever thought about how one day we will find angels of death appointed by God before we and that we will then leave this world?

...and have we ever thought about how we are so attached to a world from which we will soon depart when what we basically need is to strive for the hereafter?

"We did not create the heavens and the earth and everything between them as a game. We did not create them except with truth but most of them do not know it"
(Ad-Dukhan :38-39)

Whoever does not think and think (realise by heart) will remain totally distant from real truth and lead their life in self-deception and error. Consequently, they will not grasp the purpose of the creation of the world and even worse the reason for their existence on the earth. Yet, God has created everything with purpose. Have we ever knew this?
