An All-Round Bliss For Everything

Maulana Abul Kalam AzadThe Tarjuman al-Qur’an1968

The greatest blessing of nature is its beauteous aspect. Nature does not simply destroy and construct; it contructs in a manner pleasing to the eye. Take a comprehensive view of the entire universe or look at any part or corner of it. There is a viel of beauty spread over it; so much so, that the entire universe looks like an exhibition house of beauty working deliberately fir proportion and balance in every particle of it and thereby releasing forces for an all-round bliss for everything.

In fact, the very nature of the universe is constituted of beauty. Even as elements were created to give a form to the universe, even so was it invested with the qualities of color, light and shade, and of rhythm and melody in order to lend beauty to it.

“This is He who knoweth what is out of our knowledge and what is within it, the Mighty, the Merciful, who hath made everything which He hath created most perfect.”
