“And verily, in the cattle of camels, cows and sheep, there is something to think about:”
We start in the name of Allah, Praise and thanks are due to Him, and may Allah, raise the rank of our beloved Prophet Muhammad, his kind relatives and companions and protect his nation from that which he feared for them. Thereafter;
Brothers in faith; to reflect over God’s creations is an act carrying a great deal of importance since it reinforces our belief in the greatness of Allah’s Power. Allah the Almighty deploys rains from the sky nourishing the earth after it had been dry. This is a sign understood only by those who take the time to listen with contemplating hearts. Unfortunately those who do not listen with their hearts are as if they didn’t hear at all.
And verily, in the cattle of camels, cows and sheep, there is something to think about as Allah gave us a drink which comes from their bellies. Allah The Exalted gave us from the bellies of these animals milk found in between excretions and blood on the inside yet comes out pure from these animals for us to drink with joy. And here my dear brothers in Islam, pay attention carefully, think with depth and fear Allah in your heart. This excretion is what exists in the potbelly and yet the milk comes out from the cattle pure and palatable to the drinkers. Where does it all come from? It comes out from between blood and excretions by the will of Allah without the milk mixing with them, intact in its colour, taste and smell. Praise and glory is due to Allah the Almighty.
When one of these animals consumes some hay it reaches the belly and then through digestion the bottom of the belly will carry the excretions, the centre will contain the milk and the top will contain the blood, all three although present in sequence do not mix. Allah the Almighty Who is above everything in status and is clear of the attributes of the creation is the One who prevents them from mixing with one another. And the liver is what divides these three matters, and so the blood flows through the veins, and the pure milk flows through the udders, and the excretions remain at the bottom of the belly.
