It is Allah who creates you and takes your souls at death; and of you there are some who are sent back to a feeble age, so that they know nothing after having known (much): for Allah is All-Knowing, All-Powerful.
Besides the mystery and beauty of the many
processes going on in the working of Allah’s Creation,
there is the wonderful life of man himself on this earth;
- how he is created as a child;
- how he grows in intelligence and knowledge; and
- how his soul is taken back and his body suffers
- In some cases he lives so long that he falls into a
feeble old age like a second childhood; he forgets
what he learnt and seems almost to go back in Time.
Is not all this wonderful, and evidence of the Knowledge
and Power of Allah?
