Al-Khaliq (The Creator)

“Allah has created every moving (living) creature from water. Of them there are some that creep on their bellies, and some that walk on two legs, and some that walk on four. Allah creates whatever He wills. Verily Allah is able to do all things.” (Surah an-Nur [24]:45)

All praises be to Allah who is Al-Khaliq (the Creator). He is the One Who created all the things that are in existence. He is the One Who, in His infinite wisdom, made everything correct and in its rightful place. He shaped everything perfectly, and He is continuously doing so.

When we reflect on the world around us, we see that animals, birds and insects, all accomplish their tasks perfectly. This is a sign of the perfection of our Creator, al-Khaliq. Take for example bees. The worker bees construct the hive, ventilate it, and maintain a constant temperature. They also bring in the nutrients they collect from flowers. The Queen bee remains in the hive laying eggs to ensure the community’s continuity. The tiny larvae that grow in the hive change their skins four times before they fully complete their development. And finally the honey that is produced from this process provides healing for us. SubhanAllah.

Allah tells us in the Qur’an:

“And your Lord inspired the bee, saying: ‘Take your habitations in the mountains and in the trees and in what they erect. Then eat of all the fruits, and follow the ways of your Lord made easy (for you).’ There comes forth from their bellies, a drink of varying colour wherein is healing for men. Verily, in this is indeed a sign for people who think.” (Surah an-Nahl [16]:68-69)
