How Food Becomes Food For Thought.

Post by Abu Zainab » Fri Oct 26, 2012 9:13 pm

Salaam Everyone,
Sometimes, we complain about cost of food or its availability, but hardly reflect on the origin, meaning and significance of food, it's bearing on sustaining human existence, Nations political fortunes and future of mankind. In this regards, may I have the pleasure of inviting your attention to Verses 24-32 of Surat Abasa (80:24-32) of the Holy Qur'an, where Allah SUbhanahu Wa Ta'ala says:---

"Let man, then, consider (the sources of) his food:
( how it is) that We pour down water, pouring it down
abundantly; and then We cleave the earth (with new growth),
cleaving it asunder, and thereupon We cause grain to grow out of it,
and vines and edible plants, and olive trees and date-palms, and gardens
dense with foliage, and fruits and herbage, for you and your animals to enjoy".

In these Noble Ayats, we appreciate the story of food...the provision of which is carefully planned by the Hand which created man. Man plays no role in any of its stages; even the seeds and grains he casts on the earth are not if his making but that of Allahu Tabaraka Wa Ta'ala, the Creator and Sustainer of the Universe.
