Day 11: Signs that lead

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

10:6
Indeed, in the alternation of the night and the day and [in] what Allah has created in the heavens and the earth are signs for a people who fear Allah (Surat Yunus, 10:6)
This verse talks about things that Allah has created as “ayaat” – signs. Signs necessarily lead us to something. The Qur’an is also made up of “ayaat”, which is commonly translated as ‘verses’ – but they too are signs. Allah tells us to look our in the world, to look at nature, and to reflect on the signs. If you reflect deeply, they will lead you somewhere. Similarly, the ‘signs’ – ayaat – in the Qur’an will also lead somewhere – to Him.
When you are feeling lost and alone, follow the signs. Go out into nature and simply reflect. Open up the book of Allah and think. And see where you are led.
