His Signs Are Everywhere

Assalamu alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu!

In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

Alhamdulillah, everything is perfectly created and planned. When we think of this concept though, we often think of the sun that comes up every day at its appointed time, the precise alignment of the planets, or our perfect anatomy. We think of our ordained provisions, our birth, our death, or other big events as a reminder of fate and destiny. Usually, that is what we think of when we reflect on the perfection of Allah's planning and creation. It is in those big moments that we sit there and ponder and reflect on the message Allah is relaying to us.

But a huge part of our life is made up of a million little events, small moments, and subtle happenings that we let go by without an ounce of reflection. It could be a piece of advice someone gave us, a lecture we attended, something we have heard or seen, a conversation we were a part of, or even a delay or setback we witnessed.

We forget that even those not so obvious events happened by Allah's Will, and they also contain wisdom and perfection.

These moments are not random. They are not coincidences. Like the big moments and signs, these little ones also contain their own little wisdom, message and an opportunity for us to learn and grow.

 190. Verily! In the creation of the heavens and the earth, and in the alternation of night and day, there are indeed signs for men of understanding.

191. Those who remember Allah (always, and in prayers) standing, sitting, and lying down on their sides, and think deeply about the creation of the heavens and the earth, (saying): "Our Lord! You have not created (all) this without purpose, glory to You! (Exalted be You above all that they associate with You as partners). Give us salvation from the torment of the Fire. 

(Surah Ale-Imran)

May Allah make us from those described in the above verses - Ameen.
