Alhamdulillah for rocks, pebbles and stones

alhamdulillah for rocks It is easy to marvel at the rocks, pebbles and stones that built the wonders of the world. From the Pyramids of Giza to the Leaning Tower of Pisa to the Kaaba in Mecca, we see the artistry of man. And they help us reflect on the magnificence of Allah’s artistry.

Narrated Abu Hurairah (may Allah be pleased with him) that he said: ...And we said: O messenger of Allah (may the peace and blessings of Allah be upon him), tell us about the material from which Paradise is made, and he replied by saying: “Bricks of gold and silver, and mortar of fragrant musk, pebbles of pearl and sapphire, and soil of saffron. Whoever enters it is filled with joy and will never feel miserable; he will live there forever and never die; their clothes will never wear out and their youth will never fade.” [At-Tirmidhi 2526]

The “Alhamdulillah Series” was inspired by Ruzky Aliyar who featured a series of nature images with the tagline “Alhamdulillah”. The series was profiled on Muslim Matters during the Winter of 2012 and quickly drew praise for the simplicity of the message. Building upon this effort to remember the many blessings of Allah, has picked up the initiative and will continue to highlight the many signs of Allah.
