We have been given freedom of choice: We were nothing…………and then Allah Subhanawataala made us into something and someone special and then gave us a choice:
076.001 YUSUFALI: Has there not been over Man a long period of Time, when he was nothing – (not even) mentioned?
076.002 YUSUFALI: Verily We created Man from a drop of mingled sperm, in order to try him: So We gave him (the gifts), of Hearing and Sight.
076.003 YUSUFALI: We showed him the Way: whether he be grateful or ungrateful (rests on his will).
Here it is in beautiful soul warming recitation (rare):
And with English translation:
And with pictures that make you think……and choose to be grateful
Have you made a conscious choice?
