The heavens, the earth, the blazing sun, and the illuminating moon combine to produce the succession of day and night. This is a telling phenomenon which inspires anyone who opens his heart and mind to the messages contained in the universe. The Arabic term used for the ‘alternating of night and day’ refers both to their succession and their varying length. Both are well-known aspects which lose their significance with familiarity, except in those moments when man’s soul and conscience are awakened and he begins to contemplate the rise and setting of different stars and planets like a man reborn, responding to every aspect and every phenomenon. Only in such moments does man truly live, shaking away the rust of familiarity and repetition which becloud his vision and blunt his responses.
It is only such people who have a conscience, sharpened by their fear of God, who are alert and responsive to the evidence of God’s great might. For it is all clearly apparent in the perfection of His creation.
