Look around and contemplate
the signs that are present in the creation. The brook, the tree, the flower,
the mountain, the earth and the sky, the sun and the moon, the day and the
night --- they will all remind you of the Creator of all things. Thus your
faith will increase and so will your degree of righteousness.
(Then take admonition, O’
you with eyes (to see).) (Qur’an 59: 2)
A philosopher who embraced
“Whenever I was beset by
doubts, I would look at the book of creation, the letters of which spoke of
miracles and ultimate skill. Then my faith would not only return to normal, but
it would increase as well."
