Everything is a Muslim.
How could this be, you ask?
Look around you, what do you see?
Nature, Furniture, and People for sure.
Does a darling seedling arise from its egg, and give up its work for the days?
Nay, but Allah the almighty encourages it, and by His will the sun set’s its rays.
Now, with light the young plant may suffer burns, but do you think Allah doesn’t know this? He bestows upon the creature rain.
With light and water the growing plant begins the process but scientists decided that plants intake Carbon Dioxide in molecular grains. – It is a Muslim!
6H2O + 6CO2 —> C6H12O6 + 6O2 – Allah swt orders these molecules to create a formula for the plants, would we be alive if the formula was resentful? – It is a Muslim!
It does not have a CHOICE but to obey, “then which of the blessings of your Nourisher will you deny?”
Take a look upon the ground that carries you, each moment of your life, even after you have deceased.
Think about it “does it HAVE to carry you?” By Allah, this object is something we take for granted each day.
It is an obedient slave of its owner, Al Malik. “Then which of the blessings of your Sustainer will you deny?”
Taking a glimpse at the examples set forth, why then are the Humans such disobedient creatures of Allah?
Allah swt has Elevated our status as the best of the Universe (or worst),
Ponder upon the thought that we were bowed to by the ANGELS. –They are Muslims
Why then are we resentful to the orders of our Ruler once he has displayed such parables?
Think about our internal functions and recycle systems, we need do nothing but to eat and rest,
Allah swt takes care of the digestion and breaking down of the foods – It is a Muslim!,
“Then which of the blessings of your Rabb will you deny?”
But the final question is, Why Doesn’t Allah swt just make us all obedient like his other creations?
Because it is a TEST to see who the Best is. “The Best among You, Is the One Who Is Most Righteous”
It is Our Choice, to be good or be evil there are only two paths, choose thoughtfully and wisely.
“Then which of the Blessings of your Lord will you deny?” – 55: 13
