Weakness, Strength and Weakness (Al Quran)

User Rating:  / 0

It is Allah who created you in a state of weakness, then substituted strength after the weakness and, after the strength, will again give weakness and old-age. Allah creates whatever He wills, and He is the All Knowing, Omnipotent. (Ar-Rum: 54)

In the above verse, Allah describes how He created man as a weak and frail child. The newborn baby cannot move by itself, nor can it do anything for itself. It is only after a while that the child begins to sense things and look about. He gradually learns to sit, walk and then run and talk. It is after many years that he develops into a strong young man, who can fend for himself. He then reaches the peak of his physical and mental capabilities.
