In the name of Allah the Most Beneficent the Most Merciful,
وَمَنْ نُعَمِّرْهُ نُنَكِّسْهُ فِي الْخَلْقِ أَفَلَا يَعْقِلُونَ
“And he to whom We grant long life We reverse in creation; so will they not reason?”
When people reach old age they suddenly become like infants in the sense that they need constant attention,their strength has departed from them and they can barely do anything for themselves.
The deeper meaning in this verse is that this life is transient and will come to an end.The different stages of life ,childhood-maturity-old age, should make us realize that we were created for another world and our creation is not purposeless.
Furthermore it helps to humble us for its either we will die or we will be brought to helpless old age.How can we then be proud in the fleeting moments of youth?It also makes us realize that as we humans are never truly free of need we need to submit to our Lord who is and has always been free of need.
This are the few signs this blogger has managed to find but the Quran is an ocean of wisdom the more you dive in the more you discover.
…and Allah knows best.
Asalaam aleykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh.(May the peace and Mercy and Blessings of Allah be upon you.)
