After reading this book, your way of looking at a great many things will change. The ant you see will no longer be just any familiar insect, since now you are aware that it is an expert chemist producing formic acid. You've learned that insects and butterflies emit special scents containing signals, and that fish protect themselves with perfect sensory systems. This is all special knowledge given you by God, through the means of this book, to show you His infinite might and artistry. This knowledge will let you see the beauties and miracles around you, and to ponder about them all.
But what advantage does perceiving and thinking about these beauties and miracles provide?
You will benefit more than you can imagine.
First of all, there is an idea you'll be reminded of at every moment of your daily life: that living things were created! Seeing the signs around you that lead to faith and encountering astonishing works of art wherever you go will help you realize the falsity of the theory of evolution, which is based solely on chance.
What good will understanding that do you?
By realizing the invalidity of the theory of evolution, you will see how all the efforts made to deny creation are hollow and irrational—despite all the forces mustered to support it— and that those efforts will always be in vain.
From discovering the designs around you, you will benefit in a second way by beginning to take pleasure from the beauty laid out before you. The time you set aside for your daily chores will grow ever lovelier as you see the perfection of the things around you assumes a new significance. As you acquire this perspective, ordinary things you pass by without really seeing will become sources of great joy and enthusiasm.
These are the blessings and beauties you will encounter initially.
Beyond all this, any single living thing you consider will bring you a gain that cannot be compared to anything else in this world. As you learn that an ant possesses an extraordinary chemical laboratory, you will actually come face to face with the hidden intelligence that reigns in the body of this creature. Pervading every part of it is a flawless perfection that human intelligence, knowledge and experience can never match. The ant has complex structures and systems whose secrets have taken thousands of years of accumulated knowledge and experience to unravel. Moreover, there are countless miracles in life that modern science and technology have not yet understood, let alone construct anything comparable. In conclusion, the more you discover examples of this perfect creation in living things, the more closely you will witness the existence of God and His infinite and superior attributes.
Also, most importantly, you will realize the truth that your own creation is not for nothing. There is a point to your existence on Earth. Since everything on Earth, yourself included, is part of this wide-ranging creation, and since you have been given a soul and understanding with which to comprehend all this, then you must owe a debt to God, Who gave them to you. This conclusion, which you can draw from pondering just a single ant, will be one of your greatest gain. From now on, you will look at the works of God on Earth and the miracles in His creation, take pleasure from all of them and seek to please God rather than those around you. You will thus be freed from the influence of worldly concerns and difficulties. You will understand destiny, believe in the Hereafter, and comprehend that the life of this world has been created solely as a test. You will understand that exalting all of this world's forms of expectation and desire,, and being seized by anger and passion, will gain you absolutely nothing. With great excitement, you will realize, that you will have true life only in the Hereafter.
Grasping this truth you will turn your life away from this world and solely towards the Hereafter. As you believe in God and seek His approval, His Paradise, with its matchless beauties and endless blessings, is promised to you. You will remain there not for a hundred years, not for 1,000 years or a million, but for all eternity. You will be given infinite beautiful things and blessings. Everything your heart desires will be yours. The most important reward awaiting you there is the great mercy of Our Lord.
Even the small example of a single ant will allow you to grasp this great truth, attain this great prize, and shape your life in light of them. Realizing these truths while still in this world brings infinite benefits. On the other hand, failing to realize them, or ignoring them and becoming arrogant, will be the beginning of a terrible course from which there can be no return, only regret.
Every self will taste death. You will be paid your wages in full on the Day of Resurrection. Anyone who is distanced from the Fire and admitted to the Garden has triumphed. The life of this world is just the enjoyment of delusion. (Surah Al Imran: 185)
They said "Glory be to You!
