Subject: [MALUMAAT] Taffakur series IX
of night and day, there are indeed signs for men of understanding. - 190
There is a subtle change here from the preceding series - a reverse swing you may say. In the earlier series a science or researched fact was stated which resulted in 'tafakkur'. In this one 'taffakur' leads to an interesting fact - a Glorious creation of Allah, that will surely spellbind you, and on reading it, you will surely cry aloud ALHAMDOLILLAH!
Tafakkur: Just the other day after fazr namaz while reciting takarrub, the contemplative eye fell on the cupped up hands, and I thought, why are the fingers all different and not uniform, the thumb way down etc.: The immediate reason that came to mind, was it may be for better grip and holding of objects.
The mind is like a child - innocently curious though prankful and mischievous. I was curious to know more, and what other better way than to log on to www.google.com. I posted the query -' fingers of human hand and why different.' Hey presto! within seconds 2,66,000 sites were ready to bombard me with information.
What I want to convey is that a little time devoted in contemplation of the glorious creation of Allah, in this case, the fingers of the human hand, can reward you with a gold mine of information. Now I did not say knowledge or wisdom, merely information. You can be very informative, but to be knowledgeable and wise, you have to hold steadfast to the 'daman' of the Vali of Allah, the enlightened, the blessed, the truly appointed one, one who is Al Alim in its totality.
You very well know to whom I am referring, I can very well feel the emotions building up as you read this, the tears of Hamd and Shukr as you recollect his azeem minnat and nemaats. Believe me mumineen, all those 2,66,000 sites may make you merely informative, but if your thirst is for wisdom, and if your seeking is true, you will surely get it, from the stream of kauser, which is overflowing its banks to reach out to those mumineen who are still far from the flowing river. The vaaz relay on 90th Milad Mubarak, is a case in point.
Now coming back to the Glorious creation of Allah, this is what I had gleaned from the net.
How Do You Touch?
In a recent article on haptics (the
Greek derived word for the study of touch) in Smithsonian, June, 2000,
page 38, MIT's
Trying to understand how all this
is possible has gotten researchers into an area so complex that there
is still no answer as to how it works. It appears that the fingerprint
ridges on the bottom of your outer skin layer act as amplifiers. These
ALHAMDOLILLAH! The sensitivity of the human hand is not as a result of an effort or intelligence of human being, but a gift from Allah to all a sundry. So do reflect on the Glorious creation of Allah.
May Allah grant my beloved Aqa Moula
