Ramadhan desserts ( part 26)
ابو حنظلة محمد زهر

إِنَّ فِي خَلْقِ السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالْأَرْضِ وَاخْتِلَافِ اللَّيْلِ وَالنَّهَارِ لَآيَاتٍ لِّأُولِي الْأَلْبَابِ
Most surely in the creation of the heavens and the earth and the alternation of the night and the day there are signs for men who understand.
This verse explains that without doubt in the creation of heavens and earth are clear signs and proof of His Lordship, Greatness and perfection. How great and vast are the universe. So how great is the Creator who created them? He had created them with no flaw. And these creations are signs for those who understand, or have the capacity to think.
How many times have we once stop and ponder on the greatness of Allah swt who created this beautiful universe? When is the last time we look at the sky and marvel at His greatness? Or are we too busy with our worldly affairs that we don't even have a second to see the world around us. Or are we too engrossed in the new technology or gadgets or sophisticated machines when all these things combined are nothing when compared to Allah's creation. If all mankind are to combine forces and intelligence they can't even create a fly!
This verse teaches us to use our brain to recognize His greatness. Once we recognize and realize how great is He, we will understand how insignificant are we. We will have awe of Him and there's is nothing for us to be proud of ourselves. And this is the essence of worship when we really recognize who we are worshipping and knowing our own position.
So thus this morning, take a moment to look outside your window and look at his creations, look at the sky. Look at the clouds which weight tonnes of water droplets but are floating and moving like a cotton wool in the sky. Or at least look at ourselves how beautiful are we. For example look on how our lungs remove oxygen from the mixture of gases in the air for our body supply- what a wonderful and sophisticated filtration and distillation  systems we have in our body! Look and ponder don't waste your brains.
