THINK AND PONDER
WHY ARE WE BORN?
What is the object of our existence and what is the wisdom behind the creation of man and this tremendous universe?
When you see an airplane, rocket, satellite or a large ship, you automatically consider how incredible vehicle it is. When you see a nuclear plant or a space ship, you will have to be thoroughly impressed with the engineering dynamics involved. Yet, these are things that are manufactured by human beings. Then what about the human body with its massive and intricate control system? Think about it.
Think about the human brain
How it thinks, how it stores and retrieves information, how it analyses, how it distinguishes and characterizes information in a millionth of a second and does it constantly. This is the brain that made the automobiles, space ship and so on, but who made the brain? Think about that.
What about this Universe?
Think about this. This earth is one planet in the Solar system and our solar system is one of the systems in the milky way and the milky way is one of the constellations in that Galaxy. There are millions of Galaxies like that Milky Way. And they are all in order, they are all precise.
Think about the kidneys
What kind of function do they carry. It purifies instruments of the body, which performs hundreds of chemical analysis simultaneously and also controls the level of toxicity in the content of the body and it does this automatically.
Think about the Oceans
The fish, the insects, the birds, the plants, bacteria, the chemical elements – which have not been discovered and cannot be detected even with the most sophisticated instruments, yet each one has a law that they follow.

Wa lillahi mulkus-samaawaati wal ardh: wallahu alaa kulli shay in-Qadiir
Inna fi khal-qis-samaawaati wal-ardhi wakh-tilaafil-layli wan-nahaari la-Aayaatilli-ulil-albaab
Allaziina yaz-kuruunal-laaha qiyaamanw-wa qu-uudanw-wa alaa junuubihim wa yatafakkaruuna fi khal-qis samaawaati wal-ardh: rabbanaa maa khalaqta haazaa baatilaa! Sub-haanaka faqinaa azaaban-naar!
Surah 3, Ayah 189-191
Now, here in these verses, Allah has mentioned very clearly to us, by first drawing our attention to the creation of ourselves, the different postures of the human body, the different attitudes of the human psychology. He draws our attention to the heavens, the alternation of the day and the night, the stars, the constellations. And then he says to us, he has not created all of these for any foolish purpose, because when we see the design of it, we know that the design of it is very powerful and very precise. Something very powerful and precise, that is beyond our imagination and beyond our own calculation, cannot be foolish.
For instance, if you took 10 marbles of different colours and numbered then 1 to 10. If you put them in a bag and shook the bag and then closing your eyes, reached inside that bag and I tell you to pullout marble no. 1, then pullout marble no. 2, and then pullout marble no. 3 in order. What is the chance of you pulling out those marbles in order? Do you know what the chances are? 26 million to 1. So what are the chances of heaven/earth, been thrown in the big bang and are orchestrated like they are? What is the chance of that?
