Today is the fourth day of the #SurahAlMulk30DayChallenge and we are reading and memorizing verse 5 of Surah Al-Mulk.
While verse 4 from Surah Al-Mulk taught us that it is useless for us to look for imperfection in the creation of Allah s.w.t. because His creation is perfect and bears His Unchallenged Magnificence, verse 5 informs us that His creation bears both beauty and function. Taking the sky as an example, it has both beauty and function, Allah beautified the skies with stars during the night and with rainbow after the rain. This beauty Allah created is FOR US and as a symbol of HIS LOVE for us, to remind us that like the stars, His guidance is ready to guide us in times of darkness, and like the rainbow His love is there during rainy days. The presence of Allah can be felt through His creations. As His servants, we just need to readily accept our position as His servant and the presence shall be felt, like the saying goes; when the student is ready the teacher appears.
This verse also informs us that divine beauty is accompanied by function, together it creates a beautiful system. Taking the stars as an example, it beautifies the night sky but it is also used as something to be thrown to the devils.
This verse taught us that the creation of Allah is both beautiful and purposeful. As observant believer, observing the wisdom of Allah in His creation increase our awareness of the presence is every creation and in any situation. An observant believer is then grateful in every situation.
Today our challenge take us to reading, understanding and memorizing verse 5. Verse 5 of Surah Al-Mulk teaches us that the creation of Allah is both beautiful and purposeful. As an observant believer, we seek to notice the beauty and purpose of Allah in everything, increasing the feeling of the presence of Allah s.w.t in every creation and in any situation. An observant believer is then always remembers Allah and always grateful to Him.
“And We have certainly beautified the nearest heaven with stars and have made [from] them what is thrown at the devils and have prepared for them the punishment of the Blaze.” Surah Al-Mulk, Verse 5
Noticing this beauty and acknowledging its sense of purposefulness put us in a state of gratefulness and drives us to be positive in every situation and to have the skills to turn any setback to a great come back.
I hope this motivates you to read, understand and memorize verse 5 from Surah Al-Mulk.
InsyaAllah if Allah wills, i see you tomorrow.
