Man is created out of no obligation and placed on earth, with the heavens serving as canopy, the earth to rest on and in between the way is lighted in varying forms for him to take advantage of. Thus, man is opportuned to adventure through the earth (on and below) and above the earth (to the sky) as much as Allah permits. Also, He has made the light from the sun to be distinct from that of the moon. The celestial bodies which make up the solar system each moves on its own course while revolving round the sun. Man observes and benefits from the same sun which heats up space. Instrumental for the means for man’s production, reproduction and sustenance, Allah provides him with water from above and below the earth.

The benefits by Allah, are not only numerous in variety, they in fact exceed our imagination and are in levels. From time to time, we become acquainted with creatures we misbelieve to have been discovered, as if they were before then non-existent. There are uncountable number and a variety of others we are familiar with and cannot understand how they remain alive. For some of these, we find it difficult to understand how they can provide for themselves. Sometimes, we suspect that they cannot even do so. But they exist and survive. Even among men, many do not posses what can sustain them before the need arises.

How many are the creatures that carry not their own sustenance? It is Allah Who feeds (both) them and you: for He hears and knows (all things). Qur’an 29:60
