For the past week, I have been looking after a pot of flower my friend gave me as a birthday present.
Well, the word ‘looking after’ may sound a bit pompous because I only water the plant every day, and make sure it has enough moisture and sunlight
It is a simple task but gives a lot of enjoyment. You know that you are nurturing and sustaining a little life by following the laws of God, by acting in His name.
You also know that the plant is really looked after well. Not by you, but by the Divine Creator, who nurtures it with light, nutrition, moisture, and many things else.
In return, the flower thanks God by blossoming beautifully, by showing to the universe the attributes of God like Mercy, Compassion, Nurturing, Wisdom, Artistry, Creativity. The flower is itself a sign, an indication, a stamp of Godhead.
Life is beautiful in every little corner. All you need to do is look for it.
It is a blessed act to plant a tree even if it be the day the world ends. – Prophet Muhammad, narrated by Al-Bukhari and Ahmed.
