The Plant: A Lesson for Every Believer

Salam (Peace)!

Here's a beautiful reminder for all us, taken from here:


The believers contemplate on the ayaat of Allah that have been left upon the earth, and only they see the creation around them as ayaat.

Allah ta’ala says,

وَتَرَى الْأَرْضَ هَامِدَةً فَإِذَا أَنزَلْنَا عَلَيْهَا الْمَاءَ اهْتَزَّتْ وَرَبَتْ وَأَنبَتَتْ مِن كُلِّ زَوْجٍ بَهِيجٍ

“And you see the earth barren and lifeless, but when We pour down rain on it, it is stirred (to life), it swells, and it sprouts forth every kind of beautiful growth (in pairs).” (22:5)

What is the lesson for the believer in this?

Allah ta’ala reminds us that this plant is an ayah. Whenever we see a plant, we should remember the resurrection.

A simple plant is a reminder of the Day of Judgment for the believer.


Just as the earth will اهْتَزَّتْ,shake, رَبَتْ, swell and rise, أَنبَتَتْ, and sprout— on the Day of Judgment the earth will shake, then swell then sprout…but a plant will not be sprouting from the earth, rather it will be the companions of the grave: us.

Allah ta’ala describes the disbelievers saying:

وَلَهُمْ أَعْيُنٌ لَّا يُبْصِرُونَ بِهَا

“and they have eyes, wherewith they see not.” (7:179)

Those who do not believe in Allah see a plant and nothing else, but those with emaan and hearts that understand see an ayah about resurrection.

We ask Allah ta’ala to make us among those who take heed of His ayaat, Ameen.

Revelation Expedition

Salam (Peace) people!!

Announcing our next funtivity: Revelation Expedition! Since there was so many holidays these past weeks, it has come at no less than the perfect time. We all need to stretch those legs and muscles and get energized again BUT at the same time learn something valuable too! 

What is it? It's a good ol' treasure hunt; but with a difference. Just like in real life your guide in this treasure hunt will be the Glorious Quran. Come join us in our Relevation Expedition and we'll show you that learning the Quran is not such a daunting really and there are invaluable jewels that you can learn from it. And most of all, HAVE FUN!

It will be held on the Sunday, 15 February 2009, in Taman Tasik Perdana (Lake Gardens) starting at 9 AM (you don't wanna get burned under the hot noon sun, do you?)

And NO, you DON'T need to be a scholar to join. Just regular Joe's and plain Jane's will do. As long as you're keen on having fun, work those leg muscles, blitz those brain cells, and meet new people, then sign on up!
