Contemplating the Creator’s handiwork within creation enables us, at least to some extent, to admire His wisdom, splendour and sublime power. This, in turn, inspires reverence and love of Allah in human hearts. For the natural world is like a mirror, itself beautiful while reflecting an even greater beauty of Allah. If the starry heavens elicit in us a sense of awe; if a newly sprung red rose evokes in us a sense of beauty; if the solemn stillness of an autumn woodland kindles in us a sense of sublimity, then how much more awesome, beautiful and sublime must the Creator of such things be? Appreciating the splendour of the creation and being enchanted by it is, therefore, a means of knowing and glimpsing the still greater splendour of its Maker.

Ust. Abu Aaliyah

—————————–

Don’t neglect to make intentions to perform pilgrimage to the Ka’ba of your Spirit whether or not you perform the physical hajj,Don’t neglect to intend to slaughter your ego and lower self before you slaughter your qurbani animal, and
the true Eid is not a celebration of new clothes and shoes but a celebration of a new spiritual life and commitment to the Creator!

Shaykh Muhammad Adeyinka
