Allah Ta’ala maintains countless balances on Earth at every second, without our ever being aware of them. While a flawless equilibrium is being maintained in the vastness of space, an extraordinary range of extraordinarily complex and perfect processes also takes place within a few seconds in every square millimeters of our bodies. For example;
EVERY SECOND AS YOU SEE…
▪️About 100 billion processes have taken place in your eyes within a second.
▪️50 million cells in your body have died every second.
▪️50 million new cells have been created every second to replace those that die.
▪️10 million bits of information has been sent from your eyes to your brain every second.
▪️10 million energy molecules, known as Adenosine triphospate, (ATP) have been produced in all your 100 trillion cells, every single second.
In addition, these processes have taken place every single second, not just in your own body, BUT IN THE BODIES OF ALL THE 7 BILLION PEOPLE LIVING ON EARTH AT THIS MOMENT because each of the 100 trillion cells in the bodies of all these 7 billion people is under the control of Allah at every moment.
Are you at all aware of these events taking place inside and around you at every single moment?
The balances maintained at every moment are not only limited to space and the human body;
THE GLORIOUS NUMBERS AND DETAILS IN THE HUMAN BODY
♦️ Apart from blood and reproductive cells, all the cells in the body manufacture some 2000 proteins a second. This process takes place in EVERY SINGLE ONE of all the 100 trillion cells of ALL the 7 billion people living today.
♦️ The 100 trillion cells in an adult person’s body produce protein chains that flawlessly organize some 150,000,000,000,000,000,000 (150 quintillion) amino acids every hour. Note this; in order to produce protein chains, every single one of the 100 trillion cells in the bodies of 7 billion people organize 150 quintillion amino acids -a number that the human mind would fail to grasp- every hour.
♦️During every cell division, DNA, a library that consists of 3 billion letters, 1 million pages and 1000 volumes, is copied. This wondrous process of division takes place with the same perfection in the 100 trillion cells of each and every single one of the 7 billion people living in the world.
♦️A ribosome can add 20 amino acids to a protein chain every second. Wide-ranging protein synthesis thus takes place uninterruptedly every second in every single one of the 100 trillion cells of all the people in the world.
♦️There are some 10 billion nerve cells in the brain, and communication between them is established by means of 100 trillion synapses.
♦️4 billion information exchanges take place every second between the two hemispheres of the brain. The brain deals with 750 millionsignals coming from inside and outside the body.
♦️A single brain cell can transmit more than 200,000 pieces of information at the same time.
♦️Do you realize that all these processes TAKE PLACE EVERY SECOND IN EVERY SINGLE ONE OF THE 10 BILLION BRAIN CELLS IN EVERY SINGLE ONE OF THE 7 BILLION PEOPLE ON EARTH?
♦️ The white blood cells in the veins subject 10 billion cells in the body to health checks every 2 seconds. This check-up has taken place in all the people who have ever lived, and is taking place in the 7 billion people currently living today.
♦️ 500 different chemical processes are carried out in a single liver cell.
♦️ With every breath taken, more than 300 million air sacs in the lungs open and close to admit air into the body. These cells and sacs carry out the same tasks, without exception, in the bodies of ALL THE 7 BILLION PEOPLE that breathe in, every three seconds.
THE MAGNIFICIENT NUMBERS AND DETAILS IN NATURE
🔹 The heart of the hummingbird, a tiny bird which has far better hearing than human beings and can see ultraviolet rays, beats 300-1200 times a minute. And the hearts of all the hummingbirds on earth beat 300-1200 times every single minute.
🔹 40,000 bees have to visit 6 million flowers to make 1 kilo of honey.
🔹 The fastest computers in the world can perform 16 billion arithmetic processes a second. Yet the honey bee can perform 10 trillion processes in the same time while expending less energy.
🔹 Bacteria provides the oxygen we breathe. Cyanobacteria, algae and other micro-organisms in the sea give off some 150 billion kilograms of oxygen into the air every year.
🔹 A tiny ant has some 500,000 nerve cells. Thanks to this extraordinary system, ants are able to use very different forms of communication. They are able to perform many activities, such as hunting prey, following one another, building nests and fighting enemies thanks to this special nervous system.
🔹 More snowflakes than can ever be calculated fall from the skies every year, and each one is different than all the others.
Allah The Magnificent, has created systems that the human mind cannot fully comprehend, the details of which have still not been discovered. Billions of details have been combined together and provided for people in the finest and most beautiful way. Man can only live by means of his DNA being copied every moment, the breath he takes in, the oxygen he inhales with every breath he takes, his heart that beats every single moment, the Earth that constantly revolves, the food cycle, the water cycle, the nitrogen cycle, all the constantly moving atoms and countless other details.
Thıs is without doubt a very simple matter for Almighty Allah, Who creates from nothing, Who ordains all things as He wishes and Who is mighty enough to create them as He wishes at any time.
I seek refuge in Allah from the accursed satan-
The keys of the Unseen are in His possession. No one knows them but Him. He knows everything in the land and sea. No leaf falls without His knowing it. There is no seed in the darkness of the earth, and nothing moist or dry which is not in a Clear Book. (Surat al-An’am, 59)
What people who realize these miracles going on at every moment must do is to reflect on the greatness of Allah, Lord of the worlds and give thanks to Him for every blessing and every beauty. Because as we have been informed in the Qur’an, every person will be called to account for the blessings bestowed on him when the Day of Reckoning comes.
I seek refuge in Allah from the accursed satan-
He has given you everything you have asked Him for. If you tried to number Allah’s blessings, you could never count them. Man is indeed wrongdoing, ungrateful. (Surah Ibrahim, 34)
How then, can anyone after this NOT believe in a Magnificent creator?
