بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم
‘Do they not see the birds above them with wings outspread and [sometimes] folded in? None holds them [aloft] except the Most Merciful. Indeed He is, of all things, Seeing.’
(Surah Al-Mulk 67:19)
Each bird that flies in the air, does so in the protection of the Most Merciful. He has given each bird the form and structure by which it became able to fly. He has taught each bird the method to fly. He has made the air obey the laws by which it became possible for the heavier than air bodies to fly in it, and He upholds every bird in the air, otherwise the moment Allah withdraws His protection from it, it drops to the ground. This is not confined only to birds, but whatever exists in the world, exists because of Allah’s keeping and guardianship. He alone provides the means necessary for the existence of everything, and He alone keeps watch that everything created by Him is provided with the necessities of life. Alhumdullilah.
