All living entities possess countless perfect details and miracles of creation. There are details in the structure of a micro-organism and an atom, the building block of all things. The sky has been created with extraordinary balances and organization. The universe, the human body, plants, the Sun, flowers, mountains, and the seas contain countless details and properties, all of which are full of His artistry. This is Allah's art of detail.

However, we must never forget that Allah has no need of design or direct causes when He creates. There is no need for a living thing to have a complex visual system in order to see, for all of our personal information to be recorded in our DNA, for DNA to exist, for hydrogen and oxygen to collide to produce water, for plants to make photosynthesis, for an ant to have a neural network made up of 500,000 cells, for seeds to enable plants to emerge from beneath the ground and for those seeds to store information, or for living things in the depths of the ocean to produce light. Allah creates all of these without being dependent on direct causes, because He, the Creator of the heavens and Earth, is unfettered by such causes.

Whenever Allah wills something to exist, He merely tells it to Be. Whenever He wills something to come into being with all of its perfections, it is enough for Him to command it to do so:

Does He Who created the heavens and Earth not have the power to create the same again?
Yes indeed! He is the Creator, the All-Knowing. His command when He wills a thing is just to say to it "Be!" and it is.
(Surah Ya Sin, 81-82)

One of the wise aspects of Allah's creation of details is that they cause us to think, to see and understand that He has created everything out of nothing and displays the proofs of His own existence. They are made for us to grasp the complexities in the building blocks that comprise us and to realize that we cannot understand the skills and abilities of even a bacterium, which are sometimes superior to our own ... for us to see how much we are in need of Allah; to understand that we live on Earth by His will and permission, and that by His leave we will have an infinite life in the Hereafter; and to remind us that we will inevitably return to Him and be asked about what we saw and experienced in this world and about the proofs given to us. Allah created all of these various details for a variety of purposes. Of course, He could eliminate all of them and recreate them in even more perfect states in the Hereafter. Allah is great, Almighty, and Sublime. All things bow to Him. Everyone living today or who has ever lived, including you, the reader of these lines, will one day be raised to His Sight. Before that day comes, everyone must appreciate the proofs of His existence. Allah's art of detail is displayed in a way designed to remind us of this fact:

Çiçek bahçesi

Yes, everything in the heavens and Earth belongs to Allah.
Yes, Allah's promise is true, but most of them do not know it. He gives life and causes to die, and you will be returned to Him.
(Surah Yunus, 55-56)


They said "Glory be to You!
We have no knowledge except what You have taught us.
You are the All-Knowing, the All-Wise."
(Surat al-Baqara, 32)
