Say as universe says: Laa ‘ilaaha illa Allaah(there is no deity except Allaah)
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
All is in this universe know that Allaah The Almighty is his Creator and Provider, so they thank, praise and know that Allaah The Almighty is their God and thus they obey and worship Him.
 
Allaah The Almighty says: {And there is not a thing except that it exalts [Allaah] by His praise.} [Al-Israa’: 44]
 
It was narrated that the Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, said: “O Allaah! Lord and King of everything, God of everything and to You is everything, I seek refuge with You from the Hellfire.”[1]
 
A poet once said:
 
Glory be to the One He Who existed before all of the creation,
 
No one preceded him; no one will remain after except him.
 
The Lord of the whole universe is high above to be comprehend by the knowledge of the slaves, so we without associating (other with Him) worshiped Him.
 
So look, contemplate and think, surely you will know Him,
 
In everything and know that he is Allaah.
 
He is the One Who created all things from nothing,
 
All things glorify and fear Him.
 
Sun and moon are of the lights of His wisdoms,
 
Land and seas are of His great bounties.
 
The Throne, the Chair and the whole universe exalt Him,
 
In hope and fear, glorified be Him, Allaah.
 
The sun, the stars and the trees prostrate before Him,
 
In love and eagerness for Allaah is their Lord.
 
The cloud glorified him in the heaven,
 
Also the thunder and the wind did so for they love Him.
 
Rock falls down from its highness in fear,
 
Water gushes out of it (the rock) and weeps for fear of Him.
 
And the sea exalts Him, waves honored Him,
 
Bird glorified Him, and the whale spoke to him privately.
 
Ant under the deaf solid rock knows Him,
 
And bees sing His praise in their beehives.
 
The universe thanks him, but the slave is ungrateful to Him,
 
And the slave forgets.
 
The salve forgets, but my Lord forgets him not,
 
All what is around us reminds us,
 
If we forget that our Lord is Allaah,
 
Who listens to our complaints and respond to them.
 
None responds to the creation of Allaah except Him.
 
Whoever removes the harm except Allaah, our Creator.
 
When the harm afflicts us, whom then we can pray for except Him,
 
The name is exclusive for him, no one can get it.  
 
This name is really known. It is Allaah.
 
The whole universe glorifies with praises its Creator The Almighty. Let us travel in a journey between the heaven and the earth to see the worshipers of Allaah The Almighty in everywhere and say along with them: Laa ‘ilaaha illallaah(there is no deity except Allaah).
 
Look at the glorification of the Angels who carry the Throne and those around it.
 
The Angels carry the Throne and those around it glorify Allaah The Almighty continually, surround the Throne from all round exalting and extolling Allaah The Almighty.
 
Allaah The Almighty says:
 
{Those [angels] who carry the Throne and those around it exalt [Allaah] with praise of their Lord and believe in Him and ask forgiveness for those who have believed, [saying], "Our Lord, You have encompassed all things in mercy and knowledge, so forgive those who have repented and followed Your way and protect them from the punishment of Hellfire.}[Ghaafir: 7]
 
Subhaan Allaahi wa bi hamdih (Glory and praise be to Allaah) is a language of all creatures. It was also narrated that the Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, said: Nooh (Noah) said to his son… I recommend you to continually say Subhaan Allaahi wa bi hamdih for it is the supplication of all creatures and with which they are provided.”[2]
 
Allaah The Almighty says:
 
{And there is not a thing except that it exalts [Allaah] by His praise, but you do not understand their [way of] exalting. Indeed, He is ever Forbearing and Forgiving.}[Al-Israa’: 44]
 
All of the creatures pray and glorifie Allaah The Almighty all in the same time:
 
It was also narrated that the Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, said: “The sun never rises but all of the creation of Allaah The Almighty glorify Allaah The Almighty with His praise except the devils and the foolish of the children of Adam.”[3]
 
The seven heavens and earth exalt with the praise of Allaah The Almighty.
 
Allaah The Almighty says:
 
{The seven heavens and the earth and whatever is in them exalt Him. And there is not a thing except that it exalts [Allaah ] by His praise, but you do not understand their [way of] exalting. Indeed, He is ever Forbearing and Forgiving.}[Al-Israa’: 44]
 
Thunder and cloud exalt ‘with the praise of Allaah The Almighty’
 
Allaah The Almighty says:
 
{And the thunder exalts [ Allaah ] with praise of Him - and the angels [as well] from fear of Him} [Ar-Ra‘ad: 13]
 
A great king exalts Allaah “the Most High, the Most Great”:
 
It was narrated that the Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, said: “Allaah permitted me to speak about a rooster whose legs are on the earth and neck is fixed under the Throne, saying: Glorified are you (O God), how magnificent are You! He said: It will be given the reply, That is unknown by the one who swore with me falsely.”[4]
 
 
 
This is Angel Israafeel, how great patience he has towards the obedience of Allaah The Almighty and how great his humility is before the hands of the All-Mighty, the Compeller. Contemplate his condition when he put the Soor (Trumpet) on his mouth since millions of years. Think thoughtfully his accuracy and devotion in following the command of Allaah The Almighty.
 
It was narrated on the authority of Abu Sa‘eed Al-Khudri, may Allaah be pleased with him, that the Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, said: [5]“How can I be comfortable when the one with the horn has placed it in his mouth[6], leaned his forehead forward, listens attentively and is waiting to be commanded so that he can blow.”[7]
 
 
 
All things prostrate to Allaah The Almighty:
 
 
 
Allaah The Almighty says:
 
{Do you not see that to Allaah prostrates whoever is in the heavens and whoever is on the earth and the sun, the moon, the stars, the mountains, the trees, the moving creatures and many of the people? But upon many the punishment has been justified.}[Al-Hajj: 18] 
 
 
 
Sun prostrate for Allaah The Almighty under the Throne:
 
 
 
It was narrated that of Abu Tharr, may Allaah be pleased with him, said: "I was with the Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, in the Al-Masjid (mosque) at sunset, and he, peace and blessings be upon him, said: “O Abu Tharr! Do you know where the sun sets) I said, ‘Allaah and His Messenger know best.’ He said: “It goes and prostrates beneath the Throne, and that is what Allaah says:
 
{And the sun runs [on course] toward its stopping point. That is the determination of the Exalted in Might, the Knowing.}[Yaa-Seen: 38][8]
 
And in another variant narration reported by Imam Ahmad, he, peace and blessings be upon him, said: “It goes and prostrates before the hands of her Lord.”
 
 
 
Star prostrates along with the tree to its Lord and Creator:
 
 
 
Allaah The Almighty says:
 
 
 
{And the stars and trees prostrate.}[Ar-Rahmaan: 6]
 
 
 
Sheykh As-Sa‘adi, may Allaah have mercy upon him, said: This means that the stars of the heaven and the trees of the earth know their Lord, prostrate, obey and submit devoutly to Him.[9]
 
 
 
The tree prostrates to Allaah The Almighty and supplicates Him: It was narrated that Abu Sa‘eed Al-Khudri, may Allaah be pleased with him, said: I have seen in a dream that I am under a tree and the tree recites Soorat Saad (chapter 38 of Quran). When it came upon the verse containing prostration, it prostrated and said in its prostration: “O Allaah, forgive me for it, remove from me a sin, keep it for me as thanks and accept it from me just as You accepted it from Your slave Dawood).” Then I went to the Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, and told him about that. Upon that he, peace and blessings be upon him, said: “O Abu Sa‘eed, has you prostrated (like it)?” I said: “No.” So he said: “You had more duty to prostrate than the tree.” Then the Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, recited the Soorat of Saad and when he came upon the verse containing prostration, he prostrated and said in his prostration like what the tree said in its prostration.[10]
 
 
 
Even the inkwell and the pen both prostrate to the One Who sent down the Holy Quran, Glorified be He:
 
 It was narrated that Abu Hurairah, may Allaah be pleased with him, said: Soorat (chapter) of An-Najm was written before the Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him. When he reached the verse containing prostration, he prostrated, we also prostrated along with him and even the inkwell and the pen prostrated.”[11]
 
 
 
Stones, trees and clay recite Talbiyah with the one who assumes Ihraam for Hajj or ‘Umrah:
 
 
 
It was narrated on the authority of Sahl ibn Sa‘d, that the Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, said: “No pilgrim says Talbiyah (‘Labbayka Allaahumma Labbayk’ and so on) but whatever on his right and left of stones, trees or clay will say Talbiyah to the farthest extent on earth from here and there on his right and left.”[12]
 
 
 
Submissiveness of the mountains to the Speech of Allaah The Almighty:
 
Glory be to Allaah! Such hard solid creatures believe in Allaah The Almighty. They humiliate and submit themselves to His Honor, humble and yield to His Greatness. Glory be to Him, How Great He is!
 
 
 
Allaah The Almighty says:
 
{If We had sent down this Qur'an upon a mountain, you would have seen it humbled and coming apart from fear of Allaah . And these examples We present to the people that perhaps they will give thought.} [Al-Hashr: 21]
 
 
 
Ibn Kahtheer, may Allaah have mercy upon him, said: “If this is the case with a mountain which is hard and huge, that if it was made able to comprehend and understand this Qur'an, will feel humble and crumble from fear of Allaah the Exalted, then what about you -- O mankind Why do your hearts not feel softness and humbleness from the fear of Allaah, even though you understand Allaah's command and comprehend His Book.”[13]
 
 
 
Stones split, fall down and cry for fear of Allaah The Almighty:
 
 
 
Allaah The Almighty says:
 
{For indeed, there are stones from which rivers burst forth, and there are some of them that split open and water comes out, and there are some of them that fall down for fear of Allaah. And Allaah is not unaware of what you do.}[Al-Baqarah: 74]
 
 
 
Mujaahid, may Allaah have mercy upon him, said: “Every stone the water burst out of it, it splits and water comes out of it or it falls down from mountaintops out of the fear of Allaah. The Holy Qur'an has been sent down with that.”[14]
 
Ibn Abi Haatim narrated with his chain of transmission from Yahya ibn Ya‘qoob regarding the words of Allaah The Almighty: “from which rivers burst forth” that it means heavy weeping and His saying:“Some of them that split open and water comes out,” means light crying.”[15]
 
 
 
The love of the mountain of Uhud for Allaah, His Messenger and the Believers: Such creatures are materially hard but have soft hearts, strong structures and kind feelings. It was narrated that the Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, said: “This (Mount Uhud) is a mount that loves us and that we love.”[16]
 
 
 
Anger of the heavens, earth and mountains:
 
 
 
Heavens, earth and mountains feel angry for attributing a son to the Most Merciful (Allaah The Almighty). Furthermore, they feel sad because those foolish people insult Allaah, the One. Exalted is He and high above what they describe.
 
 
 
Allaah The Almighty says:
 
{And they say, "The Most Merciful has taken [for Himself] a son." You have done an atrocious thing. The heavens almost rupture there from and the earth splits open and the mountains collapse in devastation. That they attribute to the Most Merciful a son. And it is not appropriate for the Most Merciful that He should take a son.}[Maryam: 88-92 ]
 
 
 
To those who ascribed a son to Allaah The Almighty, Do you not fear that the heaven may rupture from above your heads or the earth may swallow you or that the mountains may collapse over you?
 
 
 
Enmity of trees and stones to the Jews for the Sake of Allaah The Almighty:
 
 
 
It was narrated on the authority of Abu Sa‘eed Al-Khudri, may Allaah be pleased with him, that the Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, said: “The Hour will not begin until the Muslims fight the Jews and kill them, until a Jew will be hiding behind a rock or a tree, and the rock or tree will say, ‘O Muslim, O slave of Allaah, here is a Jew behind me, come and kill him!’ except for the Al-gharqad (box-thorn), for it is one of the trees of the Jews.”[17]
 
 
 
Even the bodies of the disbelievers worship and obey Allaah The Almighty:
 
Allaah The Almighty is the One Who created and fashioned them. So they owe Him alone with loyalty and obedience. If He The Exalted ordered them, they will obey. If He subjects them to their owners, they will be subjected, if He takes away such subjection, it will be taken away and if He deforms them, they will be deformed.
 
 
 
The bodies of the Jews change to the bodies of apes and swines:
 
 
 
Look at the bodies of the Jews when they disobeyed Allaah The Almighty and used deceitful means to fish on Sabbath on which fishing was prohibited for them (as a kind of honoring that day). So Allaah The Almighty commanded their bodies to change to the bodies of apes. So all of the bodies have obeyed the command of their Creator, Glorified be He.
 
 
 
Allaah The Almighty says:
 
{And you had already known about those who transgressed among you concerning the sabbath, and We said to them, "Be apes, despised." And We made it a deterrent punishment for those who were present and those who succeeded [them] and a lesson for those who fear Allaah.}[Al-Baqarah 65-66] 
 
 
 
Hearings, eyes and skins will testify against their owners:
 
 
 
On the Day of Resurrection, Allaah The Almighty will take the subjection of the body to their owners, so they will obey their Lord. The hearing, eyes and skins will speak and witness for Allaah The Almighty against their owners.
 
 
 
Allaah The Almighty says:
 
{And [mention, O Muhammad], the Day when the enemies of Allaah will be gathered to the Fire while they are [driven] assembled in rows, Until, when they reach it, their hearing and their eyes and their skins will testify against them of what they used to do. And they will say to their skins, "Why have you testified against us?" They will say, "We were made to speak by Allaah, who has made everything speak; and He created you the first time, and to Him you are returned.}[Fussilat: 19-21]
 
 
 
Even the fire worships Allaah, the All-Mighty, the Irresistible - Exalted and Glorified be He:
 
The fire, its heat and its flames worship Allaah The Almighty and submit to His command and sovereignty. When Allaah The Almighty wants it to burn, it will. However, if He The Almighty wants it to be cool, its flames to be gentle wind and its heat to be a fresh air, then it will obey His command and submit to His Subjection:
 
For example, when Ibraaheem, peace be upon him, was thrown in the fire, Allaah The Almighty made it coolness and safety. Allaah The Almighty says:
 
{Allaah said, "O fire, be coolness and safety upon Abraham.} [Al-Anbiyaa’: 69]  
 
 
 
 
 
The wolf invite for Laa ‘ilaaha illallaah(there is no deity except Allaah):
 
 
 
It was narrated that Ahbaan ibn Aws, may Allaah be pleased with him, said: I was amongst my sheep. Suddenly a wolf caught a sheep and I shouted at it. The wolf sat on its tail and addressed me, saying, 'Who will look after it (i.e. the sheep) when you will be busy and not able to look after it? Do you forbid me the provision which Allaah has provided me?' "Ahban added, "I clapped my hands and said, 'By Allaah, I have never seen anything more curious and wonderful than this!' On that the wolf said, 'There is something (more curious) and wonderful than this; that is, the Messenger of Allaah in those palm trees, inviting people to Allaah (i.e. Islam). Then Ahbaan went to the Messenger of Allaah and informed him what happened and embraced Islam.”[18]
 
 
 
A nation was guided on the hands of the hoopoe:
 
 
 
Can the hoopoe have a protective jealousy towards Laa ‘ilaaha illallaah(there is no deity except Allaah) and the Oneness of Allaah The Almighty?
 
The Hoopoe felt sad that other than Allaah The Almighty is worshiped and felt pain that bowing and prostration may be ascribed to other than Allaah The Almighty. So look at his high determination and listen carefully to his strong and serious tone while he is speaking to Prophet Sulaimaan (Solomon), peace be upon him, about the people of Sheba (Allaah The Almighty says on his behalf):
 
{But the hoopoe stayed not long and said, "I have encompassed [in knowledge] that which you have not encompassed, and I have come to you from Sheba with certain news. Indeed, I found [there] a woman ruling them, and she has been given of all things, and she has a great throne. I found her and her people prostrating to the sun instead of Allaah , and Satan has made their deeds pleasing to them and averted them from [His] way, so they are not guided, [And] so they do not prostrate to Allaah , who brings forth what is hidden within the heavens and the earth and knows what you conceal and what you declare - Allaah - there is no deity except Him, Lord of the Great Throne.}[An-Naml: 22-26]
 
 
 
All creatures love the callers to Allaah The Almighty:
 
 
 
It was narrated on the authority of Abu Umaamah, may Allaah be pleased with him, that the Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, said: “Allaah, His angels, and the inhabitants of heaven and earth, even the ant in its hole and even the fish, send blessings – i.e., pray for good – upon the one who teaches the people good.” [Reported by At-Tirmithi and said: Hasan (good) Hadeeth] and in another narration, the Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, said: “And the inhabitants of the heavens and the earth pray for forgiveness for the scholar, even the fish in the sea,” [Reported by Abu Daawood and At-Tirmithi]
 
 
 
Ants are a nation that glorifies Allaah The Almighty:
 
 
 
 
It was narrated on the authority of Abu Hurairah, may Allaah be pleased with him, that he heard the Messenger, peace and blessings be upon him, saying: “An ant had bitten a prophet (one amongst the earlier Prophets). So the prophet ordered that the place of the ants be burnt. So, Allaah inspired to him, ‘It is because one ant bit you that you burnt a community from amongst the communities that glorify Allaah?”[19]
