Journey of Contribution of Western Civilisation
As the Quran puts it: “And He gave you of all that you asked Him.” (14:34) The blessings of God mentioned in this verse are of two kinds. The first kind comprises those blessings that already existed on the earth from the day man set foot there, such as animals, water, air, light, etc. Other kinds of blessings are those which were not yet in existence at the time of the revelation of the Quran, for instance, industrial machinery, railways, motorcars, aeroplanes, telephones, electricity, etc. The second kind of thing was invented mainly by the West, but today they are generally used everywhere. The Quran tells us that God’s signs, scientific proof of God’s religion, are hidden in the heavens and human souls (41:53). In modern times these signs have fully emerged and have established the veracity of God’s religion (for details, see The Bible, Quran and Science, Maurice Mucaille, American Trust Publications, 1978). However, this task was also performed by the West. Muslims regularly avail of all these facilities, but they had no share in bringing them into existence. The Prophet predicted that the message of Islam would spread to all homes, whether large or small, all over the world (Musnad Ahmad, Hadith No. 23814). This has become entirely possible in the printing press and modern communications age. However, the people of the West dedicated their lives to realising nature’s hidden potential.
