Did you know that owls’ eyes are specially created to allow them to live at night?
With their eyes, located perfectly at the front of their heads, owls can see some 10 times clearer than human beings.
Interestingly, owls cannot move their eyes. They can only look straight ahead. Yet by means of the highly flexible structure of their necks, they can rotate their heads up to 270 degrees, Aand this gives them a very wide field of vision.
In some species of owls, the eyes represent five percent of the birds’ total body weight. This is a very high figure. Were this applied to human beings it would mean us having eyes the size of large grapefruit.
Another feature of owls’ eyes is that they contain a high proportion of rod cells. These are sensitive to light and allows them to see superbly in the dark.
The perfect and precise distance between the eyes of owls, which hunt at night, is also specially created and reinforces depth perception .
Allah is He Who flawlessly creates all living things together with the properties they need.
I seek refuge in Alah from the accursed satan:
The Originator of the heavens and earth. When He decides on something, He just says to it, ‘Be!’ and it is. (Surat al-Baqara, 117)
