“The Aayat in Surah Twa-Haa, “Alladhee A’twaa Kulla Shay-in Khalqwahu Thumma Hadaa” rings in my ears nonstop.
Meaning: God is the one who gave everything its existence, then showed it what to do and how to act.
And that other aayah: “Wa Lituswna’a Ala ‘Ayinee.”
Meaning: So you will be shaped, formed, crafted – manufactured as it were – right before my eyes.
What a perfect factory for the production of a perfect human being, like one of his senior Rasuls and prophets, Musa, Alaihis Salam, Allah chose – the household of one of his most inveterate enemies: Pharaoh!
If this is not I’jaz, if this is not a miracle, what is?
And if this is not the entire story of Islam – in every age and place – then what is it?
This is how God’s ever-watchful eye guides, protects, shepherds and steers those who love him and whom he loves, in the most difficult and dire situations and circumstances.
What a powerful message of hope it is for all those who choose to work for Allah in any age or place!
We can spend the rest of our lives just chanting those two aayats.” (Dr. Pasha)
