Design in Nature

It’s amazing… how much beauty lies within our sight… how many perfect pictures are scattered around us… even in the mundane we can still spot beauty…
Praise be to Allah who created all this…
Looking into Allah’s most beautiful names I came across several which relate to design and beauty in nature…
- Al-Khaliq [The Creator]
”God is He who has created seven heavens, and, like them, the many aspects of the earth. Through all of them flows down from on high, unceasingly, His creative will, so that you might come to know that God has the power to will anything, and that God encompasses all things with His knowledge.” At-Talaq 65:12

- Al-Bari [The Maker of Order]
“He… creates everything and determines its nature in accordance with His own design.” Al-Furqan 25:2

- Al-Musawwir [The Shaper of Beauty]
“He it is who has created for you all that is on earth, and has applied His design to the heavens and fashioned them into seven heavens; and He alone has full knowledge of everything.” Al-Baqarah 2:29
