In the stillness of the sea we could sense tranquility, peace and stability. The beautiful hues of the water and skies have a cooling effect on the soul. The warmth of the sun bathe the skin lovingly.
We travel across the sea and land to see and appreciate beautiful creations of the Lord. At every turn there is beauty and bounties. How can we not feel honored and preferred? Oftentimes, as we get sucked in the spiral of our daily chores, we feel down, forgetting that He has honored us and has carried us here and there every single day.
We should pause and be thankful of verse 17:70 of the Quran: "We have honoured the Children of Adam and carried them on land and sea, and provided them with good things and preferred them greatly over many of those We created."
Indeed, He has provided us with good things. Alhamdulillah wa shukrulillah.
