Islam and Revelation

Islam
And of His signs is that He created you from
the dust; now behold you are human beings,
ranging widely.
And of His signs is that He created for you,
of yourselves, spouses that you might find
repose in them, and He has planted love and
kindness in your hearts. Surely there are signs
in this for people who reflect.
And of His signs is the creation of the heavens
and the earth and the variety of your
tongues and hues, surely there are signs in this
for people who have knowledge.
And of His signs is your slumber by night and day,
and your seeking of His bounty. Surely
there are signs in this for people who hear.
The lightning which He shows you for fear
and a hope is yet another of His signs; He sends
down water from the sky, thereby reviving the
earth after it is dead. Surely in this there are
signs for people who understand.
And of His signs is that space and the earth
stand firm by His command; then when He
calls you, suddenly, from the earth you shall
emerge.
Islam. Qur’an 30.20-25
This follows the same theme as the other great religions.  Nature itself points to someone who is greater namely God!  I like the way this passage brings in other aspects of nature such as planting love and kindness in our hearts. 😊
