Call of Sailing

Do you not see that ships sail through the sea by the favor of Allāh that He may show you of His signs? Indeed in that are signs for everyone patient and grateful.
And when waves come over them like canopies, they supplicate Allāh, sincere to Him in religion. But when He delivers them to the land, there are [some] of them who are moderate [in faith]. And none rejects Our signs except everyone treacherous and ungrateful. [Luqman:31-32]

Almost four years ago I went on a ferry from London to France with my family. During that trip the waves became very fast and powerful. For some time it felt as though we would drown or that the ferry would be turned upside down. At this time everyone was praying to Allah (swt) to save them and protect them and once the weather calmed down everyone went back to their usual joking and laughing as though nothing had happened. We are heedless but we don’t know when Allah (swt) may decide not to give us the chance to laugh about it later.
