The Rububiyat Of God

Maulana Abul Kalam AzadThe Tarjuman al-Qur’an1968

Indeed, there are countless varieties of creation infinitesimally small in form that our naked eye cannot perceive them. For them, also, the Rububiyat of God has made the requisite provision for sustenance and growth with as much care as for the bulky elephant or the intelligent man. All this man can observe in his external world. Should he look into himself, he will notice that his life, at every moment of his existence, discloses a world of activity propelled by the Rububiyat of God.

“Oh earth are signs for men of firm belief;
And also in your own selves:
Will ye not then notice them?”

Surah: Al-Dhariyat (Scattering Winds) – Chapter: 51 – Verse: 20-21
