And say: “Praise be to Allah, Who will soon show you His Signs, so that ye shall know them”; and thy Lord is not unmindful of all that ye do. (93)
Here is a Message for mankind: let them take warning therefrom, and let them know that He is (no other than) One God: let men of understanding take heed. (52)
In several verses, God stresses that the purpose of the Quranic revelation is to invite people to reflect. Human must think of the way in which we came into this world, the reason of our existence, on why death and what will wait after that. Question why this universe appeared and what makes it continue to exist. In this reflective, we must free our mind from all its constraints and prejudices.If we reflects by disregarding the social point of view, ideological and psychological, that conditioned us, we should manage to become aware that the entire universe, including ourselves, was created by a Higher Force. Even if we observes our own body, or something more general, the nature which surrounds us, we will see there is an impressive perfectly planned harmony within His creation resulting from an infinite work of wisdom. I will assert that the entire universe composes of “Signs of God” to those who observe and honest.
Behold! in the creation of the heavens and the earth, and the alternation of Night and Day,― there are indeed Signs for men of understanding.― (190) Men who celebrate the praises of Allah standing, sitting, and lying down on their sides, and contemplate the (wonders of) creation in the heavens and the earth, (with the thought): “Our Lord! not for naught hast Thou created (all) this! Glory to Thee! Give us salvation from the penalty of the Fire. (191)
Those who believe in God, will see clearly His perfection, His eternal wisdom, His knowledge, and how His power works within all of His creation. It require a certain effort on behalf of each individual to recognize the Signs of God. Each one arrives there according to our own wisdom and our conscience. Indeed the real ‘intelligent’ people are those who whenever they see the signs of God they ponder over it to understand His knowledge and His eternal power. God’s knowledge is unlimited and His creation is perfect.
