Muhammad Bin Ibrahim At-Tuwejri in his book titled “Fiqh ul Quloob” (“Understanding of the Hearts”) beautifully presents Allah’s (swt) numerous and wonderful creations. The objective is to draw attention from the concrete realities of this world and lead to the spiritual and abstract reality, enabling individuals to find their role and purpose of life.
For your eyes only – to behold and bow down to Allah (swt)
“And the earth! We have spread it out, and set thereon mountains standing firm, and have produced therein every kind of lovely growth plants. An insight and a Reminder for every slave who turns to Allah in repentance.” (Qaf 50:7-8)
Allah (swt) planned and designed this world deliberately. The creation of land shows Allah’s (swt) care for His beings. How He stretched it wide for man to plough land, build structures, excavate minerals, construct ways, etc. Next, He pegged the mountains to stabilize the moving Earth to grant peace and comfort to His creation. The role of His slave is to observe all this, internalize it, and run to his Lord repeatedly. Become ‘Muneeb’ – the slave who recognizes Allah’s (swt) signs with the eyes of his heart and turns to his Master again and again in submission.
