Meditation in the condition of oneself
Suratun-Nahl – (The Bee) – 16
‘A-‘uu-zu Billaahi minash-Shay-taanir- Rajiim.
(I seek refuge in God from Satan the outcast)
(In the name of God, the Beneficent, the Merciful)
وَٱللَّهُ خَلَقَكُمْ ثُمَّ يَتَوَفَّىٰكُمْ وَمِنكُم مَّن يُرَدُّ إِلَىٰٓ أَرْذَلِ ٱلْعُمُرِ لِكَىْ لَا يَعْلَمَ بَعْدَ عِلْمٍ شَيْـًٔا إِنَّ ٱللَّهَ عَلِيمٌ قَدِيرٌ 70
|70. And Allah createth you, then causeth you to die, and among you is he who is brought back to the most abject stage of life, so that he knoweth nothing after (having had) knowledge. Lo! Allah is Knower, Powerful.||70. Wallaahu khalaqa-kum summa yatawaffaakum, wa minkum many-yuraddu ‘ilaaa ‘arzalil- ‘umuri li-kay laa ya’-lama ba’-da ‘ilmin sha-‘aa. ‘InnAllaaha ‘Aliimun- Qadiir.
In this verse, it has been described to the mankind that one should meditate also into the condition of oneself. There are many great portents in the mankind for knowing Allah Almighty. It is commanded: Who did create you; is Allah Almighty. After creating you still He is Powerful over you in all conditions. You are in obedience of His Command. It is not in your control to go out of His Command. Hence the age of whosoever from you will go to end, He will cause him to die. Some will be such people who will live long and reach such stage of life; in which the mankind becomes good for nothing. Parts of his body do not work properly. Power of thinking and understanding decreases, and he forgets entire acquired knowledge gradually, even that every learnt thing has been forgotten. These all are wonders of Allah Almighty. As He wished, made it, and formed according to His Will. He knows everything and has full power over everything. As He is Able to control every individual, just like this He is Omnipotent over your folks and groups. The same law has been working everywhere that the things are created and after completion of their life, they are finished. Some are such living things and people which live but in worse condition being powerless. These entire are portents of the Omnipotence of Allah Almighty.
