# HoW MucH aRe We MissiNg

In the name of Allah,the Most Merciful, the Most Gracious...

" I have put my trust in God, my Lord and your Lord. There is not a moving creature but He has the grasp of its forelock. Verily, my Lord is on the Straight Path ( the truth )" [11:56]
Everyday when we are up and ready,living our day to day lives,all of us have definitely come across these miniature beings lining up after the other, ardently toiling to carry food to their nest. But have you ever stopped to wonder what kind of purpose of these tiny living beings might have in working so hard? The ant lifts crumbs much bigger than its body. It carries them to its nest with heart and soul. Did the realization hit you that not only does the ant carry food for itself,but also for other members of its colony,for the queen and baby ants? How such a tiny ant,which does not even have a developed brain, comprehends such diligence,discipline and self-sacrifice?
" And We send the winds fertilizing,and cause water to descend from the sky, and give it to you to drink. It is not ye who are the holders of the store thereof " [15:21]
Imagine it is time for the zuhr prayers and you are on your way to the masjid. It is really hot and there are tiny drops of perspiration glistening on your forehead. You turn around the corner and a long refreshing breeze softly greets you n the face. It uplifts your spirit and energizes your soul. What if Allah hadn't blessed us with this revitalizing breeze? Can you imagine your world so still, the oceans without waves, no rustling of leaves or swaying of trees? The Creator has blessed us with this natural air conditioning system to help us sustain the sweltering heat and go on carrying out our responsibilities with ease and comfort. Little thanks do we give........
