For the heedful there are many things in the greater universe ☄️, yet all are interrelated. One can find the same in the microcosm of the human being – for instance in the relation between the soul ,who is the deputy of Allah , and others assigned to rule.
For instance, the body hair is similar to the forests.🏞️ And body fluids – some sweet , like saliva, some bitter, like tears, some poisonous, like nasal secretions – all are like the waters of this planet.🌊
As the whole universe is created from the primary elements of earth , water , fire and air, so is the body of man.👤
📜Almighty Allah says:
He it is that created you from dust. [Surah Al-Ghafir Chapter 40, Verse 67]
Further He says:
We have created them from clay [Surah As-Saffat, Verse 11]
which is a mixture of earth and water💧.
Then He says:
We created the human being….of formed dried mud. [Surah Al-Hijr : Verse 26]
which is a mixture of earth and water and air.🌕🌊❄️
Then He says:
He created the human being from sounding [fired] clay. [Surah Ar-Rahman: Verse 14]
indicating the fire 🔥in man.
Corresponding to the wind blowing in four directions, the human body also has four powers: attraction, repulsion, retention and digestion.
In this world there are both wild and domesticated animals. In us , there is anger, vengeance, the desire to overwhelm, to war and make mischief. At the same time we work to obtain sustenance, to marry, to raise children, and so forth.
The universe holds things both visible and invisible. So it is in man, who has an exterior and an interior being. In this world there are heavens and the earth. The human being also ascends and descends. If you look at what is around you and seek what corresponds to it in you, you will find the Divine Truth.
