Someone who keeps thinking
about the planet on which he lives, thinks how important water,
which Allah creates, is for human life. The following comes to mind:
people, in general, understand the importance of water only when
they are deprived of it for a long time. Water, however, is a
substance which we need every moment of our lives. For instance,
a considerable portion of our body cells and of the blood that
reaches every point in our body consists of water. Were it not
so, the fluidity of blood would decrease and its flow in the veins
would become very difficult. The fluidity of water is important not
only for our bodies but also for plants. Thus, water reaches the
furthest end of the leaf by passing through its thread-like vessels.
The great quantity of water in the seas makes our earth habitable.
If the proportion of sea to land on the earth were smaller, then
lands would turn into deserts and life would be impossible.
A conscientious person who thinks about these matters is
completely convinced that the establishment of such a perfect
balance on the earth is surely not a coincidence. Seeing and
thinking about all these shows that a Creator Who is exalted
and the owner of eternal power created everything for a purpose.
