Everything Prostrates to Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala

"See you not that to Allâh prostrates whoever is in the heavens and whoever is on the earth, and the sun, and the moon, and the stars, and the mountains, and the trees, and Ad-Dawâb (moving living creatures, beasts, etc.), and many of mankind?" [Sourat al-Hajj 22:18]
Sometimes I walk around campus and just stare at the sky or at the birds and I think about how everything in this world prostrates to Allah in all His Glory. The moon, the sun, the trees, the ants, the bees---everything in this world praises Allah and everything is also a sign for humanity. Some people believe that in order for them to believe in God, they must see Him, but the true definition of faith is to believe without ever seeing. Don't get me wrong, Islam doesn't encourage blind faith, which is why the signs of the existence of God surround us everywhere we go. Next time you step outside of your doorstep, take a moment and look at the birds, they are in fact praising Allah--what's more beautiful than that?
