The universe in harmony:

Abdullah ibn Mushabbib al-Qahtāni

All creatures were not created for play, diversion, or for no purpose, far exalted is Allah above that! He says:

{And We did not create the heavens and earth and what is between them for play.}

[Surat al-Anbiyā’: 16]

All existents point to the attributes and traits of the Almighty Creator and indicate His beautiful names.

If the creatures were lines to be read, you would read them and see that they clearly point to their Creator.

Through them, the Glorified King sends us messages that there is no true god except Allah, and that every creature, silent or speaking, leads to Him. 

Allah Almighty says: 

{Indeed, We have created all things with due proportion.} 

[Surat al-Qamar: 49]

Doctors say that the opening of the larynx is accurately determined and designed. If it were a little wider, one’s voice would disappear, and if it were a little narrower, he would find it hard to breathe. So, either easy breathing with no voice, or a clear voice with difficult breathing. 

{...[It is] the work of Allah, Who perfected all things. Indeed, He is All-Aware of what you do...}

[Surat an-Naml: 88]

Likewise, if our sight were stronger, our life would turn into Hell. 

If you look at the glass of water you drink from, you will see it clear and pure. But if your sight were alittle stronger and sharper, you would see amazing things in the glass. You would see countless living organisms and harmless germs. Certainly, you would not be able to drink then. 

{Indeed, We have created all things with due proportion.}

[Surat al-Qamar: 49]

Also, if our sense of hearing were a little stronger, we would not be able to sleep at night, being disturbed by all different kinds of sounds. Even the sounds in our digestive system alone are like a large laboratory.

{Indeed, We have created all things with due proportion.}

[Surat al-Qamar: 49]

And if our sense of touching increased a little bit, we would feel the static electricity around us, which would turn our life into an unbearable Hell.

{And in yourselves. Then will you not see?}

[Surat adh-Dhāriyāt: 21]

{This is the creation of Allah. So show Me what those other than Him have created...}

[Surat Luqmān:11] 

Nonetheless, there are people with tainted dispositions and sick souls arguing regarding Allah Almighty, even though His signs exist even within their own bodies. How strange!

{And they rejected them, while their [inner] selves were convinced thereof...}

[Surat an-Naml: 14]

{And if you ask them: “Who created the heavens and earth?” They would surely say: “Allah.” Say: “Praise be to Allah”; but most of them do not know.}

[Surat Luqmān: 25]
