a NEW opening – with Praise of Allah
الْحَمْدُ لِلَّهِ رَبِّ الْعَالَمِينَ
[All] praise is [due] to Allāh, Lord of the worlds.
Many people are mistakenly impressed and awe struck by things seemingly larger and more powerful than them such as celestial bodies, mountains, snakes, etc. These people in fact worship what they think to be seemingly dangerous or unexplained phenomena, i.e. miraculous birth of Jesus, wind, water, fire etc. Fascinated by a celebrity or artist, some people devote their lives venerating the bold, blond and beautiful. Wherever there is beauty, any excellence, perfection, strength or power, in whatever thing or in whatever shape it may manifest itself, its ultimate Source, Originator and Benefactor is none other than Allah.
Allah alone is the sole Creator, Master, Sustainer, Guardian and Sovereign of the universe. Thus, if there is anyone at all whom we humans, ought to adore, to whom we ought to feel indebted and grateful, towards whom we should remain humble and obedient, is the CREATOR and Bequeather of excellence and might, rather than its temporal possessor.
