BY IMRAN IBN MUHAMMAD
Nature’s beauty is one of the most wonderful blessings gifted to mankind by Allah the Almighty. Allah has created nature not only for our physical existence but also for our psychological well-being. His creationsportray a magnificent touch of beauty which can never be surpassed by any man made object. Therefore it is the will of Allah to make mankind’s existence in this world a memorable one so that man in return shows his gratefulness to him in a humble manner Alhamdullilah. All of Allah’s creations prove that Allah loves beauty and also wants us to be conscious of its importance. In every aspect of nature be it the running water the sky, the sea, the high mountains or the flying birds, creatures in the sea or the wilderness in the forest or the dry desert and there is eye catching attraction for the man to feed his inner senses. Wherever we turn around to cast a look we are greeted abundantly with the spectacular beauty of nature. Without this touch of attraction in nature man’s life on earth would be a mere dull existence.Take the majestic sun which rises in the morning spreading its brilliant rays of flaming colours to wake us in the dawn. The splendor of its beauty creates such liveliness in us to produce not only an energetic feeling but also to present the whole world a magnificent scenery. The attractive scene of the sunrise and the sunset draw millions of people to the mountain tops or to the sea sides specifically to admire them to bring a soothing effect to their disturbed minds.With the rising of the sun there emerge the blooming flowers in various colours and shades. Has Allah created these bloomers in arrays of hues without any meaning? The sparkling beauty of these bloomers like a nerloac paint fabulous and breathtakingly eye catching.Isn’t man able to derive great pleasure in such companions around him?
Shouldn’t man be thankful to the creator for giving him such happiness free of charge?Just imagine a world without trees and plants. Who created them with such abundance of resourcefulness adding a touch of cooling greenery that stretches over the earth unending? From the great oaks to tiny bushes and grass we get not only food shelter and protection but also a soothing array of colourful formation to feed our hungry eyes. How would our life be in a place where everything is brown instead of the green coolness you get from the vegetation? It is very unfortunate that man today is so thoughtless,selfish and callous to destroy these valuable gifts. Isn’t heading towards destruction? Birds, bees, butterflies and other creatures around us give added brightness to the environment. Allah has gifted man with his blessings to cater to his aesthetic sense in these beautiful creations.They are created with such delicacy, coordination and color combination which evidently prove Allah’s benevolent kindness to man to live a life filled with calmness, serenity and joy.Look at our water resources.They are not only simply water resources but are also great attractions that captivate our senses. Waterfalls especially are great aspects of beauty that bring a great sense of calmness to us. The vast blue ocean and the ever flowing rivers have their own projection of attraction. One can spend hours watching the waves in the sea that display Allah’s love for beauty.Certainly there is a lesson for man to understand the meanings behind these creations.What if the world is a colourless dry arid desert? Can you and I be here in the colorful world on the blue planet!
