Secrets?

Assalamu Alaikum,

Yesterday a friend of mine witnessed an open heart surgery. She told me she was intrigued by seeing a live heart beating.

That got me thinking: beneath our still exteriors, our hearts are always beating. Even at our moments of supreme happiness, or deepest grief. We may never whisper a single word, we may carry a thousand secrets or several million thoughts across a silent open field, but our hearts still beat. Consciously or unconsciously, it is there keeping us alive. To me, it is a symbolic representation of God’s knowledge of everything we say or think. We may think we hide things or we may be unconscious of God’s infinite knowledge, but God always knows what is in our minds and in our hearts. Like our hearts keep beating no matter what we say, think or do, God knows everything in us, no matter what.

May not be the best logical connection, but it made me think.

“Whether you say a thing aloud or inaudibly, He has knowledge of the secret and the hidden.”

–Surah Ta Ha, Ayah 7 [20:7]

    I like this post🙂 It made me think, not only is Allah all aware of what we do, but we are so dependent on Him more than we realize. Our whole life is dependent on that organ/muscle in our body, and the proper functioning of all the systems in our bodies. It’s such an intricate system that there are infinite ways it could go wrong, but here we are with everything functioning perfectly by the mercy of Allah. Keeping that in mind would humble anyone..
    Also, to me it’s a huge sign of the existence of God. We’re taught about evolution and big bang theory and all that, but seriously.. we as ‘intelligent’ beings can never create something perfect, and yet people say that this whole universe and life came about spontaneously..
