The Evolution Deceit
Modern day cities are formed when millions of people come together. People have always felt the need for rules and regulations in order to guarantee their peace and security. It would be impossible to do that without them.
Another fact about the modern life of society is individualism. Each individual in a society has his own aims and plans. Most individuals put their interests before anything else. The interests of society and other people come after those. That selfish morality means there are poor, hungry and homeless people all over the world.
Let us now imagine an enormous city. Imagine hundreds of thousands of individuals living in it. Yet no one considers his own interests. On the contrary, they put the interests of society and others first. Imagine everyone working with great self-sacrifice, with no terrible urge to be first. Imagine there is no conflict there.
Such a society probably goes beyond the bounds of human imagining. Yet such a society does really exist on the earth.And what is more, just about everywhere on it. The living things that constitute that miraculous society are ants.
Ants live in colonies of hundreds of thousands and even millions of individuals. Every one in the colony carries out its responsibilities to the full. No one creates any problems over its position or job. The important thing is the survival of the colony of which it is a part. To that end, each one will give up its life if necessary. It is impossible to find one hungry or homeless individual. That is because there is an enormous cooperation, harmony and sharing between them.
Even a single drop of water is shared. Foodstuffs are collected and stored in the nest to be shared out again. There is absolutely no selfishness among ants. Not one is at a loose end.Each one is part of a giant organization. Each one is devoted to the part of the organization outside itself.
Ants organize themselves in a flawless manner. Yet they have no hierarchy among them, and no ant organizes the colony. Despite that, every ant miraculously knows what it has to do. The distribution of labour was set out before they were born, and ants perform their jobs to perfection.
An ant colony is made up of ants with different functions. And if even one of those functions failed to be carried out, that would spell the end of the colony.
With their social life and social organization, so superior to that of man, ants are all proof of Allah’s art of creation.
Allah’s might and the art of His creation are to be seen in all living things. Ants are just one of the countless manifestations of Allah’s art of creation in the world.
In one verse, Allah says:
“Everyone in the heavens and earth belongs to Him. All are submissive to Him.” (Qur’an, 30: 26)
