Everything We Possess Is A Favour from God

In the world we are dwelling in, God endows & bestows unlimited & infinite favours on us beings. He is the one who is the giver, provider and sustainer. Let's take our day to day activities as an example.

From the moment we wake up in the morning till we go to sleep at night, we need many things and encounter many situations. In brief, we are fulfilling those only as favours bestowed upon us by the Almighty Lord. On our own we cannot be fulfilled.

We breathe throughout our life. We never experience difficulty in doing this, thanks to our respiratory systems functioning perfectly.

We can see as soon as we open our eyes. The sharp and distant images, all three-dimensional and fully coloured, are perceived by our eyes and indeed we owe their existence to the unique design of eyes.

We taste different things & differentiate the flavours. The relative proportions of the vitamins, minerals, carbohydrates and protein content of the food that we eat and the metabolic activities going on in the Inner system of human body is really a wonderful machinery governed by our Lord.

Moreover, quite unaware of the complicated operations taking place our bodies.

When we hold any material in our hands, we immediately sense whether it is soft or hard, hot or cold. We do not need any metal effort to do this. Numerous similar detailed activities take place in our body on their own.

The organs responsible for these actions have complicated mechanisms. The human body functions almost like a factory of enormous complexity and ingenuity. This body is one of the major favours given to man since his existence on earth.

At this point, a question remains to be answered…

? ... ? ... ? ... ? ... ? ... ? ... ?

How the raw materials, which are necessary to operate this factory, supplied?

To put it in another way.

How does water, air, and all the other nutrients essential for life came into existence?

Let us think about the different fruits and vegetables. (Melons, watermelons, cherries, oranges, tomatoes, peppers, pineapples, mulberries, grapes, eggplants…) all grow in the soil from seeds, and the seeds have a structure sometimes as hard as wood. However, while considering these facts we should avoid habitual ways of thinking and employ different methods. Visualize the delicious tastes and flavors of strawberries or the never-changing flavor of watermelon.

Think about the time and energy spent in laboratories to produce similar flavors and about the repeated trials that resulted in failures. Indeed, results obtained by scientists in laboratories prove to be no better than the unsuccessful imitations of their natural counterparts. The varieties of taste, odour and colour in nature bear indeed matchless attributes.

All vegetables and fruits have distinct tastes, odors and carry individual colors that are the result of the structural design particular to them. They are all favours God bestows upon man.

Similarly, animals too are created especially for human beings. Apart from these being served as food man finds their physical appearances appealing like Fish, corals, star-fish decorating the depths of oceans with all their beautiful colours, all kinds of birds adding charm to their habitat cats, dogs, dolphins and penguins etc., they are all favours from God to humanity. God stresses this fact in many verses:

And He has made everything in the heavens and everything on the earth subservient to you. It is all from Him. There are certainly signs in that for people who reflect.
(QURAN 45 : 13)

If you tried to number God's blessings, you could never count them. God is ever -Forgiving, Most Merciful.
(QURAN 16 : 18)

He has given you everything you have asked Him for. If you tried to number God's blessings, you could never count them. Man is indeed wrongdoing, ungrateful.
(QURAN 14 : 34)

The living beings mentioned above are only a tiny part of the favours and beauties that God has bestowed upon us. Wherever we turn, we come across creations reflecting the attributes of God. God is Ar-Razzaq (the Ceaseless Provider), Al-Latif (the Subtle One, He who creates things most subtly), Al-Karim (the Generous One), and Al-Barr (the source of all goodness).

Now, take a look around yourself and think. And never ignore the fact that everything you possess is a favour to you from your Creator

The God Almighty says about this fact in the below verses of the Holy Quran.
Blessed is He in Whose hand is the kingdom, and He has power over all things, He who created Death and Life, that He may try which of you is best in deed: and He is the Exalted in Might, Oft-Forgiving; Who created the seven heavens one above another; you see no incongruity in the creation of the Beneficent Allah; then look again, can you see any disorder? Then turn back the eye again and again; your look shall come back to you confused while it is fatigued.
(QURAN 67 : 01 - 04)

Do they not observe the birds above them, spreading their wings and folding them in? None can uphold them except (Allah) Most Gracious: Truly (Allah) Most Gracious: Truly it is He that watches over all things.
(QURAN 67 : 19)

What! Is he who goes prone upon his face better guided or he who walks upright upon a straight path? (QURAN 67 : 22)

Say: "It is He who has created you (and made you grow), and made for you the faculties of hearing, seeing, feeling and understanding: little is it that you give thanks.
(QURAN 67 : 23)

Say: He is the Beneficent. In Him we believe and in Him we put our trust. And you will soon know who it is that is in error manifest.
(QURAN 67 : 29)

Say: Have you thought: If (all) your water were to disappear into the earth, who then could bring you gushing water?
(QURAN 67 : 30)

Any blessing you have is from God. Then when harm touches you, it is to Him you cry for help.
(QURAN 16 : 53)
