DO YOUR BIT: GOD HELPS THOSE WHO HELP THEMSELVES

Maulana Wahiduddin Khan | SOULVEDA

There was once a man who stubbornly refused to believe that it is God who provides for and nourishes His creatures. His friends did the best to make him understand, but with no success. Finally, he decided to silence them by putting this notion to test. Leaving his home early one morning, he went off to a jungle where he perched himself up in a tree. “It is God who nourishes His servants, He will send me my food here too,” he thought.

THE DOCTOR WHO CHOSE HUMANITY OVER LIFE

Maulana Wahiduddin Khan | SOULVEDA

It was the 4 November 1847, a servant entered the room of his master, a Scottish doctor, to find him lying face-down on the floor alongside two of his colleagues. They appeared to have rolled down from their chairs. The servant thought that perhaps they had drunk too heavily, so he covered them up and quietly went away.

ALL FOR EACH AND EACH FOR ALL

Maulana Wahiduddin Khan | SOULVEDA

“Nature works,” says Emerson, “on a method of all for each and each for all.” This sums up the process at work in the universe. There are innumerable forces in nature functioning with amazing coordination, in complete harmony with one another. The whole corresponds to the part and vice versa.

WHEN ONE IS BROKEN

Maulana Wahiduddin Khan | SOULVEDA

When an inanimate object, such as a piece of wood, is broken into two, it remains broken. Never again can it remould itself into one piece. Animate objects, however, live on even after breakages. When one live amoeba is cut in two, it turns into two live amoebae.

WHAT IS HOLDING THE UNIVERSE TOGETHER

Maulana Wahiduddin Khan | SOULVEDA

The solar system is comprised of the sun and other celestial bodies which do not have light of their own. These bodies are gravitationally bound to the sun and revolve in specific orbits around it. As of now, only one solar system is known in the entire universe. Our planet earth is part of this solar system. Astronomers have, however, conjectured that there might be more than a million such solar systems in the vast universe.
