Some of my Motivations
Verses in the Quran
Allah burdens not a person beyond his scope. He gets reward for that (good) which he has earned, and he is punished for that (evil) which he has earned.
Verse 286 (partly)
"Have We not made the earth as a bed. And the mountains as pegs? And We have created you in pairs (male and female, tall and short, good and bad, etc.). And have made your sleep as a thing for rest. And have made the night as a covering (through its darkness), And have made the day for livelihood.And We have built above you seven strong (heavens). And have made (therein) a shining lamp (sun). And have sent down from the rainy clouds abundant water. That We may produce therewith corn and vegetations. And gardens of thick growth."
Surah An Naba'
"Who has created the seven heavens one above another, you can see no fault in the creations of the Most Beneficent. Then look again: "Can you see any rifts?". Then look again and yet again, your sight will return to you in a state of humiliation and worn out."
Then We made the Nutfah into a clot (a piece of thick coagulated blood), then We made the clot into a little lump of flesh, then We made out of that little lump of flesh bones, then We clothed the bones with flesh, and then We brought it forth as another creation. So blessed be Allah, the Best of creators. After that, surely, you will die. Then (again), surely, you will be resurrected on the Day of Resurrection. Did you think that We had created you in play (without any purpose), and that you would not be brought back to Us?"
