  1. I'm currently 3.5 months pregnant and looking back on those first few weeks with nostalgia but it's not over and there is more magic to come! Pregnancy is a mysterious time when your body takes over and does everything with such intelligence. All the pregnancy symptoms – puking, hunger pangs, unstable emotions, physical weakness, and fatigue – are exactly what the infant will feel when it is born, thus literally making you develop empathy for the infant. You are sharing the same body but are separate individuals; living in perfect symbiosis 🙂

  2. Scientist only lean on their own understanding and science has the limits to answer their questions. God created us and yet most people dont believe that we are created by God uniquely and perfectly.

  3. “Verily We created man from a product of wet earth; then placed him as a drop (of seed) in a safe lodging; then We fashioned the drop into a clot, then We fashioned the clot into a little lump, then We fashioned the little lump into bones, then clothed the bones with flesh, and then produced it another creation. So blessed be Allah, the Best of Creators!” [23:12-14]

    “It is He Who has created you from dust then from a sperm-drop, then from a leech-like clot; then does he get you out (into the light) as a child: then lets you (grow and) reach your age of full strength; then lets you become old,- though of you there are some who die before;- and lets you reach a term appointed; in order that you may learn wisdom.” [40:67]
