GREATNESS OF ALLAH ﷻ
The Perfection of the Sky
Watch on YouTube:
Allah ﷻ says in the Qur’an:
وَبَنَيْنَا فَوْقَكُمْ سَبْعًۭا شِدَادًۭا
And constructed above you seven strong [heavens],
Meaning, the seven heavens in their vastness, loftiness, perfection, precision, and adornment with both stable and moving stars.
Ponder over the perfection of the sky, how it is raised without any assistance!
Allah ﷻ says
ٱلَّذِى خَلَقَ سَبْعَ سَمَٰوَٰتٍۢ طِبَاقًۭا ۖ مَّا تَرَىٰ فِى خَلْقِ ٱلرَّحْمَٰنِ مِن تَفَٰوُتٍۢ ۖ فَٱرْجِعِ ٱلْبَصَرَ هَلْ تَرَىٰ مِن فُطُورٍۢ
[And] who created seven heavens in layers. You do not see in the creation of the Most Merciful any inconsistency. So return [your] vision [to the sky]; do you see any breaks?
Meaning, look at the sky and pay close attention to it. Do you see any flaw, deficiency, defect or rifts in it?
A challenge from Allah ﷻ.
ثُمَّ اْرجِعِ البَصَرَ كَرَّتَيْنِ
Then look again and yet again,
يَنقَلِبْ إِلَيْكَ البَصَرُ خَاسِئًا وَهُوَ حَسِيرٌ
your sight will return frustrated and weary.
Now ponder, what is more greater?
The Sky or the Human?
Allah ﷻ says
لَخَلْقُ ٱلسَّمَٰوَٰتِ وَٱلْأَرْضِ أَكْبَرُ مِنْ خَلْقِ ٱلنَّاسِ وَلَٰكِنَّ أَكْثَرَ ٱلنَّاسِ لَا يَعْلَمُونَ
The creation of the heavens and earth is greater than the creation of mankind, but most of the people do not know.
And finally, Ponder that despite being a great creation of Allah ﷻ, it obeys Him ﷻ,
As Allah ﷻ says
إِذَا السَّمَآءُ انشَقَّتْ
When the heaven is split asunder,
This refers to the Day of Judgement.
وَأَذِنَتْ لِرَبِّهَا وَ حُقَّت
And has responded to its Lord and was obligated [to do so]
It will split on the order of Allah ﷻ, and it will obey because nothing overpowers the command of Allah ﷻ.
Ya Ibn Adam!
We are just weak humans created from sperm!
We die and perish!
The sky does not crack nor does it falter, yet it obeys Allah ﷻ,
Ponder over the greatness of Allah ﷻ, that He is the master of all things, from the expansive sky to the tiniest of ant!
So what stops us from His obedience?
