Assalamualaikum and Bismillahirrahmanirrahim.
Today the topic will be about the Signs. Among many converting to Islam videos in Youtube, I always find myself comeback to this one, because the story is simply beautiful. JazakAllah Khair to whoever uploaded this video.
This story of a gentleman converting to Islam had inspired me to write this entry. May Allah rewards him and blessed him in this world and hereafter. Through this video, he mention that Islam is the last religion he investigate. When he already prepared to embrace Islam, he asked Allah for a simple sign to push him in accepting Islam. Simple sign that indicate " Yes, this is the true religion. The true path". But, absolutely nothing happened. He quiet disappointed. But then, when he's about to give up, he open the Qu'ran. The very next verse he reading - not sure what verse he reading because he did not mention about it - but more or less, the content carries the meaning that: For those of you who asked for signs. Have We not shown you enough already? Look around you, look at the star, sun, water. These are the signs for people of knowledge. ---This part really hits me.
[You can refer to these verses of Qu'ran that mention about signs. JazakAllah Khair to sister who sharing this in the Ummah.com Forum Thread.]
And He has subjected for you the night and day and the sun and moon, and the stars are subjected by His command. Indeed in that are signs for a people who reason.
Those who do not know say, "Why does Allah not speak to us or there come to us a sign?" Thus spoke those before them like their words. Their hearts resemble each other. We have shown clearly the signs to a people who are certain [in faith].
We will show them Our signs in the horizons and within themselves until it becomes clear to them that it is the truth. But is it not sufficient concerning your Lord that He is, over all things, a Witness?
All in all, what I wanted to concluded from this, even me as a Muslim myself; sometime tend to forget to look upon these signs around me. I mean, don't you find its amazing, fascinating, beautiful, magical and every impressed feeling I cannot even express; how the clouds are hanging without attached to anything? How every single living thing in this world such as a little tiny ants, have their own body system? You don't have to look that far, you just have to look at yourself and think. A human; complete with perfect sense, feeling, brains and many more.
SubhanAllah, AllahuAkbar, MashaAllah. Indeed, Allah is the Creator.
That's that. I really hope you guys can take time to watch this video and then wonder, think. If Allah can simply create this beautiful worlds which complete with the systematic ecosystem, it is very not impossible for Allah to create heaven, hell, angels, and every stories mention in Qu'ran is the truth- nothing but the truth.
InshaAllah. May this stories will always be a good reminder for me and also for people who reading this entry. Kalau ada salah dan silap penulisan di entry ini, harap dapat beri teguran kepada saya. Syukran.
