“Here is a peek at that most astonishing of all partnerships – the one between God and Man, as they used to say – that provides as spectacular a definition of Islam as anyone would wish to have:

  • Allah has created all kinds of food for humans to eat – but the actual eating part, humans will have to do that themselves.
  • Allah has created water and all kinds of beverages for humans to drink – but the actual drinking part, humans will have to do that themselves.
  • Allah has made the air for humans to breathe and equipped them with lungs to make that possible – but the actual breathing part, humans will have to do that themselves.
  • Allah has made the earth for humans to walk on and given them legs to do so – but the actual walking part, humans will have to do that themselves.
  • Allah has made night and day for humans to rest and work – but the actual resting and working parts, humans will have to do those themselves.
  • Allah has given humans bodies and fitted those bodies with brains and hands and feet and eyes and ears and tongue and mouth and lips – but the actual thinking and acting parts, humans will have to do those themselves.

What an absolutely marvelous and meticulously calibrated partnership this is – between Man, as they used to say, and God.” (Dr. Pasha)
