His Attribute Of Providence

Maulana Abul Kalam AzadThe Tarjuman al-Qur’an1968

The Providence of God is at work in nature; and its purpose is to produce water in the particular fashion and arrange its distribution in this particular way. It is the Rahmat or the Mercy of God which produces water but it is His Rububiyat or His attribute of Providence which utilizes this water so as to give every living object its means of sustenance.

“And one of His signs is that He sendeth the winds with glad tidings of rain, that He may cause you to taste His mercy, and that ships may sail at His command, that out of His bounties ye may seek wealth, and that haply ye may render thanks.”

Surah: Al-Rum (The Romans) – Chapter: 30 – Verse: 48
