AIDS: A Reflection on Provision

Posted by on Feb 15, 2012 in Quranic Reflections, Reflections, Yasmin's Online Journal | 1,935 comments

Sahih International
“Or who is it that could provide for you if He withheld His provision? But they have persisted in insolence and aversion.”
When I first studied this surah, I was taking Biology. We were learning about how the immune system works. If you study how AIDS works, it is such a sign. AIDS stands for Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome. Reflect on this. The most deadly disease is simply a withholding of God’s provision (our immune system). That’s it. All He has to do is withhold one single type of immune cell (t-4 ‘helper’ cell) and the entire immune system collapses. After that, a simple cold can kill us. SubannAllah. Who can provide for us if He withholds His provision??

  1. subhan Allah wabihamdihi

    your reflecton also helped to draw my attention to part of an ayah later in surah mulk, ‘qaleelan maa tashkurouna’ ..little do you give thanks..

    i think most of us don’t ever say Alhamdulilllah for t-4 helper cells
    usually we say ‘alhamdulillah’ for our health as a whole but there are so many amazing blessings within the blessing of health… never could we truly praise and thank Allah Subhanahu wa Ta’ala enough

  2. Assalamu alekum Sister, here is some fact about AIDS. It is not caused by any virus, it is a genetically engineered disease, which when injected into the body on any healthy human being will cause the white blood cells to decrease. First the origin of this disease was said to be caused by the green monkeys in Africa. Indian scientists researched on AIDS and they found out that it is not naturally found. It is genetically engineered and injected into the blood stream of people, mainly in Africa. AIDS is found to be the mostly affecting the African nations.
