Gaze at the sea and He shall reward you!


O son, how generous He is! You look at the sea and He will reward you, as simple as that! So look, contemplate and praise:
Robbana ma kholaqta haza batila
Subhanaka faqina 'aza bannar
O Lord, You did not create this in vain;
Glory be to You, save us from the torment of the fire.
(from Qur'an 3:191)
O son, know that there are three other things to look at and be rewarded by your Creator: the face of your parents, the Qur'an Mushaf and the magnificent Kaabah. So be among those whom He referred to in chapter Al-Imran, 191:
"Those who remember Allah (always, and in prayers) standing, sitting, and lying down on their sides, and think deeply about the creation of the heavens and the earth, (saying): Our Lord! You have not created (all) this without purpose, glory to You! (Exalted are You above all that they associate with You as partners). Give us salvation from the torment of the Fire."
