The Protecting Eye Of Providence

Maulana Abul Kalam AzadThe Tarjuman al-Qur’an1968

To visualize God as Rabbul-Alamin or the Rabb of all creation is to conceive of Him as not only the Creator of everything in the universe but its nourisher and sustainer as well. The provision that He has made for the sustenance and growth of everything is made under a plan, so marvelous that every being is furnished with all that its particular nature demands for the existence, and at the same time, it is furnished in a manner that takes cognizance of every changing situation and need. The ants crawl on earth, the worms push their way in mud and dirt, the fish swim in water, the birds fly in air, the flowers blossom in gardens, the elephants wander in the jungle and the stars revolve in the heavens. But on every one of these, rests the protecting eye of Providence, and there is none that is denied its blessings.
