Berfikirlah kamu tentang makhluk ciptaan Allah dan janganlah kamu berfikir tentang ZatNya kerana kamu tidaklah mengetahui keadaan sebenarnya
Riwayat Abu Nu’aim dan Al-Asbahani (Yakan F., 2008)
I was at the site where the house is in building. Looking around while waiting for the contractor to confirm on what are the things left to be bought, I saw this.
This picture was taken nearby a hole which was dug almost a year ago. Its going to be a septic tank in near future. After being abandoned for so long, small fishes existed in there. Hm… I wonder where do they come from?
As you can see, it is a picture with the pinkish-purplish dragonfly in focus. Nice, isn’t it? Hey, if we were to think, would it be ‘how does it gets its colour?‘.
And next, i noticed this…
A blue one. Could be a male dragonlfly (based on the law of judging gender by colour). He is so beautiful (handsome would not describe him best). And i wondered, how come it became blue in colour? Hm…
As the saying of our beloved Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be upon Him) which i quoted above, by just a simple thing like this, it made me feel so good about Him. How brilliant He is, how beautiful He is… That I seriously can’t describe.
Indeed for those who have faith, this kind of scene would eventually boost up their faith to Him. Undoubtedly, as what is told to us in Al-Quran, Ibrahim (Peace Be Upon Him), our father, get to ‘know’ Allah by looking at the creation of the universe. From the star, to the moon, to the sun, and next to the Creator of the world, the One and only.
Keep on wondering, how do the people in the ancient time vary the colours, until I got to know the colours are pinkish-purplish and blue? One thing for sure, He is the One who gave us the understanding… He who thought our father, Adam, of all things in this world.
And He taught Adam the nature of all things; then He placed them before the angels, and said: “Tell me the nature of these if ye right”, They said; ” Glory to Thee, of knowledge we have none, save what Thou hast thought us; in truth it is Thou Who art perfect in knowledge and wisdom.”
Al-Quran, 2;31-32 (Ali A. Y., 2001)
I am assured that people got the inspiration in creating various colours by looking at these creatures. Be it insects, animals, trees… They are the creation of Lord of the world, The Wise, The Gracious and The Merciful. None will be able to challenge Him, NOTHING! 🙂
And before I left, I saw this.
Great! They were sitting very close to each other but I didn’t notice it from the beginning. Unaware of the surrounding, I’ve got to enhance my focusing skill.
