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
    dissolution.
  • 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?
