See the birds fly...


O son, whenever you see the birds fly in the sky, remember this verse from the Qur'an:
Al-Mulk (67):19 - that nothing holds the birds in the sky except for Allah Ar-Rahman.
'Do they not see the birds above them, spreading their wings and folding them in?
None upholds them except the Most Gracious (Allah).
Verily He is the All-Seer of everything.'

'Awalam yaraw ilaalttayri fawqahum saffatin wayaqbidna
ma yumsikuhunna illaalrrahman
innahu bikulli shay in baseer'

أَوَلَمْ يَرَوْا إِلَى الطَّيْرِ فَوْقَهُمْ صَافَّاتٍ وَيَقْبِضْنَ ۚ مَا يُمْسِكُهُنَّ إِلَّا الرَّحْمَـٰنُ ۚ إِنَّهُ بِكُلِّ شَيْءٍ بَصِيرٌ

None upholds the birds in the sky, except Allah.

  1. May Allah in His Infinite Grace and Mercy uphold us in all our conditions, in our folding (qabd) and unfolding (bast) as He upholds the birds in the sky. Amen.

    La haowla wa la quwwata illa billah.

  2. Assalamualaikum warahmatullah dear Sadiq, Amen to your du'a.
