Found my High school exam papers, looking at them I realized, how silly I have been. Scribbled poems in most of the question papers and no wonder I lost my University entrance and lost the law college entrance by thirteen marks. I was never a sit in one place, study for long hours student. I maintained that rule only when it came to my fiction writing and still managing to maintain at least that, Alhamdulillah. (And now experiencing ripples of humble happiness in me while I’m editing this note to publish.)

Seeing those question papers made me think for a while. At school we learn as how rain falls down, what happens to the water on earth, etc etc. We were taught that everything around us was formed naturally. We were brought up giving the basic knowledge of oneness of God, Allah so we believe that everything around us was created by Allah. But yet to score high marks we forget about the truth and get along with the comfortable answers. But at exams, for almost every question we must show how we got the answers, especially math based subjects. One answer won’t be sufficient so we have to leave everything on paper to show how we got the answer. Why? Because no matter how qualified the one who corrects the paper, they have common terms that nothing comes naturally. It has a way and a method to prove your answer. No matter how complex the process it is, whether it is geometry or algebra, although you know where X is, you can’t just circle and leave the paper. You have to prove it with all the possible theories. Then how can we just say that the whole universe was created naturally considering unproved theories? Believing in unproven theories called science, believing unseen things which are the signs of God is Islam. “He Who has, made for you the earth like a carpet spread out; has enabled you to go about therein by roads (and channels); and has sent down water from the sky.” With it have We produced diverse pairs of plants each separate from the others. (Ta-ha 53)
