‘A-‘uu-zu Billaahi minash-Shay-taanir- Rajiim.
(I seek refuge in Allaah from Satan the outcast)
(In the name of Allaah, the Beneficent, the Merciful)
أَمَّن يَهْدِيكُمْ فِى ظُلُمَٰتِ ٱلْبَرِّ وَٱلْبَحْرِ وَمَن يُرْسِلُ ٱلرِّيَٰحَ بُشْرًۢا بَيْنَ يَدَىْ رَحْمَتِهِۦٓ أَءِلَٰهٌ مَّعَ ٱللَّهِ تَعَٰلَى ٱللَّهُ عَمَّا يُشْرِكُونَ 63
|63. Is not He (Best) Who guideth you in the darkness of the land and the sea, He Who sendeth the winds as heralds of His Mercy? Is there any God beside Allah? High Exalted be Allah from all that they ascribe as partner (unto Him)!||63. ‘Ammany-yahdiikum fii zulumaatil-barri wal-bahri wa many-yursilur-riyaaha bushram-bayna yaday RahmatiH. ‘A-‘ilaahum-ma-‘Allaah. Ta-‘aalAllaahu ‘ammaa yushri-kuun.|
For finding a way of any other place from own place is impossible as long as one does not know radically four directions. After determining East, West, North and South, the required place is fixed and its establishment depends on the Stars at night. If a person is in the desert, forest or ship during the darkness of the night, he can do nothing save wandering confounded and confused. None can help him in finding the way whether those are Idols or people unaware of directions and nor those can reach anywhere directly themselves.
It is commanded: Allaah Almighty created stars in the sky and caused them to glitter. For them; He determined fixed places. By means of the same arrangement, you can find your destination easily. Moreover, He managed another system for you that He arranged to rain water on the earth at the time of necessity. We knew by thinking that this arrangement also was done by Allaah Almighty Who gave heat to the sun and fixed its different places by setting differences. By means of heat, hot air ascends up and for filling its place, cold winds blow in from all around, which bring rainy clouds along with them. The people are pleased by these winds that now the rain will come, dryness and heat will be repelled. Can any other make this arrangement save Allaah Almighty? Then why do you choose any other as God save Him? High is Allaah Almighty above whatever you associate with Him.
