Alhamdulillah for the Mountains


And you see the mountains, thinking them rigid, while they will pass as the passing of clouds. [It is] the work of Allah , who perfected all things. Indeed, He is Acquainted with that which you do. (Surat An-Naml 27:88)

December 11th marks International Mountain Day, as recognized by the United Nations. This year the theme is “Mountains – Key to a Sustainable Future,” and is used as an opportunity to create awareness about the importance of mountains to life, highlight the opportunities and constraints relating to its development and to build partnerships that will bring positive change.

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.

“There truly are signs in this for people who reflect.” (Quran 13:3)
