A Glass Of Milk
And He has subjected to you whatever is in the heavens and whatever is on the earth – all from Him. Indeed in that are signs for a people who give thought. [Al Jathiya:13]
Something was said to me today that was outwardly very humorous but when you think about the concept behind the statement it clarifies this verse. I was told today “Could you imagine if you go towards a cow to milk it and the cow said .. “no way! Don’t even try to milk me” .. I laughed. Then when we read this verse it clicked in my head that this is what is mentioned in this verse.
If Allah (swt) had wanted He did not have to subjugate everything for us. If He has done this for us then it is so that we show Him gratitude. So from now on anytime you take a glass of milk remember this humorous statement but more than laughing try to remember the lesson in it for us.
