Examine (learn) what has been created by God
The first verse revealed (revealed) God through Gabriel is Iqro command (Read) to the Prophet Muhammad. It means that although the Prophet Muhammad in a state of illiteracy still Allah ordered Prophet Muhammad to learn, to memorize or remember the knowledge of God in the form of Quran and Sunnah (al-wisdom).
Within the contents of Al-Quran Allah tells man that the Earth and the entire universe and all beings are created by God even God has determined the destiny of all creatures, even the leaves are falling from the branches already written of God in the book:
Prophet sallallaahu alaihi wa sallam said: "Allaah has set all the destiny of all creatures from fifty thousand years before God created the heavens and the earth". (HR. Muslim no. 2653).
"No one calamity befalls on the earth and (nor) in yourselves but it is inscribed in the Book (Lawh Mahfuz) before We bring it. Verily it is easy for Allah ". (QS. Al-Hadid: 22).
God also set up and keep the star, and all that is in this universe, and let examines both scientifically and empirical everything that has been created by God, so that people increasingly know ke the truth a Oneness of God, and that man was ordered only to worship to God, not to other than Allah or prohibit commit shirk (associating partners with Allah) and prohibited remained pagan.
(BBC) - new pictures of the spacecraft New Horizons NASA captures low-lying fog clinging to the surface of Pluto.
Rugged mountain scenery the planet Pluto and the sweeping plains are also visible from the pictures.
Prof Alan Stern, head of the mission chief scientist, said, "This picture really makes you feel you are there, on Pluto, surveying the condition of his own."
"But this picture is also a new discovery in science, revealing in detail the atmosphere of Pluto, mountains, glaciers and plains," he added.
New Horizons gained a lot of attention after it passes Pluto on July 14, at a distance of 12,500km.
NASA topography ranging more widely known since the New Horizons
Scientists say the fog provide further evidence of the presence of water in Pluto as well as on Earth, but involve different types of ice.
NASA spacecraft begin data collection for the year earlier this month, allowing scientists to continue their topography Analisia.
A new sight of the crescent Pluto was sent to Earth on Sept. 13.

ARTI Parables in the Qur'an
Qur'anul al-karim as a guide book contains many useful discussions that are needed by humans in all conditions. For example, in teaching methods and how to embed a value in one's heart. The method used is a method that is simple and most obvious. Among his method is to make the parables. This method is used to convey the problems are very urgent and crucial, such as the problem of monotheism and the condition of those who mentauhidkan Almighty Allah, Shirk problems and conditions of the polytheists, and a variety of other great deeds. The goal is of course to understand and inculcate noble values that abstract in a manner described with something concrete so as if invisible to the eye. Therefore, it is a necessity for a servant to pay attention and try to understand the purpose of the parables that.
REVELATION AND SCIENCE likened WITH RAIN WATER
Allah Almighty has likened the revelation and knowledge that Allah Almighty sent down to His apostles with the rain, while the heart is likened to the earth and the valley. The influence of science and revelation in the heart likened to the effect of rain on the soil of the earth. Among the existing arable land that can absorb water and grow the grass, as the heart can understand the revelation of Allah Almighty and make it happen in life.
Among the land was also a ground that can hold water but plants can not tumbuhdi it. People can utilize the stored water to meet their needs, such as drinking, bathing, eating, and so forth. This is permisalan for the hearts of people who could memorize the revelation and he also menyampaikanya to someone else, he just could not understand it in depth. People like this are still good, but the degree under the degree minded people in the first group.
Then there is also the land that can not hold water and can not grow grass. It is a parable for the heart that could not benefit at all from revelation, both in science, memorizing or practice.
Side of the equation between the liver and the ground or above the earth in the parable seems so obvious, so are the similarities between rain and revelation. Rain is the source of human physical life and a source of sustenance, revelation and science as a source of spiritual life or the human heart.
SENTENCE TAUHID likened to TREE GOOD
Allah Almighty also likens the phrase of unity with a good tree always fruitful every time.
ألم تر كيف ضرب الله مثلا كلمة طيبة كشجرة طيبة أصلها ثابت وفرعها في السماء)24(تؤتي أكلها كل حين بإذن ربها ويضرب الله الأمثال للناس لعلهم يتذكرون
Do you not see how God has made a good sentence parable like a good tree, its roots are firm and its branches (towering) into the sky, the tree gives its fruit in every season by the permission of their Lord. God parables make it to human beings so that they always remember. [Ibrahim / 14: 24-25]
Likewise Tawheed tree planted in one's heart. He will also continue to bear fruit or benefit. Among the fruits of Tawheed ie good intentions, noble morality and good deeds. These benefits are not only felt by those who tauhid, but also perceived by others.
The Pagans equated with SPIDER
Allah Almighty likens polytheism and the polytheists who seek refuge to other than Allah Almighty as knitting spider nest. Because cobwebs are the weakest nest , so that his actions make nests will only make it weaker.
مثل الذين اتخذوا من دون الله أولياء كمثل العنكبوت اتخذت بيتا وإن أوهن البيوت لبيت العنكبوت لو كانوا يعلمون
The parable of those who take protectors other than Allah is like a spider who makes house. And indeed the weakest home is the spider's house if they but knew. [al-Ankabut / 29: 41]
Likewise the idolaters who take protectors other than Allah Almighty. It would only weaken themselves, because his heart was breaking up a relationship with Allah Almighty. Heart like this would be very vulnerable from all sides, coupled with the dependence on the creature, then he will be more fragile. He thought the creature could benefit and save him from danger, but did not.
Obviously very different conditions with the heart condition of the Muslims who only rely on Allah Almighty. His heart is strong according to the power of faith, tauhidi and dependence on Allah Almighty who arranged everything. Like-minded Muslims who committed and above the rules of his religion. Words and deeds remains good, free from bondage beings, does not rely on them completely.
This contrasts with the idolaters likened to the deaf mute again, which is just a burden. He can not bring good, although given the various directives. His heart was always dependent on the will of creatures, thus indirectly been enslaved and have no freedom. Also diperumpamakan by Allah Almighty to the people who fell from a height and being struck by birds and selanjut torn torn up out of shape.
حنفاء لله غير مشركين به ومن يشرك بالله فكأنما خر من السماء فتخطفه الطير أو تهوي به الريح في مكان سحيق
With sincere to Allah, not associating anything with Him. Anyone who ascribe anything to God, then is it as if falling from the sky and struck by a bird, or the wind to distant places. [al-Hajj / 22: 31]
If all they consider god is gathered to make the most of small creatures that fly they will not be able to do it. So what if they alone? Instead of creating flies, restore and reclaim food taken even they can not fly. Are there any drawbacks worse than this? Is there ignorance is worse than ignorance of the Pagans? This condition is exacerbated by the many gods they worshiped that caused them not possibly win the pleasure of it all. People like this are always dogged by sorrow and suffering that was hit repeatedly.
Had the Pagans realize most of these evils, he would attempt to save himself from the various evils that. He will also be aware that during this time he had wasted their minds after no matter their religion. This is contrary to the Muslims who only devote themselves to Allah Almighty. Their hearts are quietly on the religion of truth. They also realize that the fruit will be acquired much better that eternal happiness in life is also eternal.
AMAL A SERVANT Are Like GARDEN
In another parable, Allah Almighty likens deeds such as garden.
ومثل الذين ينفقون أموالهم ابتغاء مرضات الله وتثبيتا من أنفسهم كمثل جنة بربوة أصابها وابل فآتت أكلها ضعفين فإن لم يصبها وابل فطل والله بما تعملون بصير
And the likeness of those who spend their wealth seeking the pleasure of Allah and for the firmness of their souls, like a garden that is located on a plateau which is watered by rain, then it brings its fruit twofold. If heavy rain is not water it, then light rain (was sufficient). And Allah is Seer of what ye do. [al-Baqarah / 2: 265]
Allah Almighty mentions a deed done with sincerity, net of all that can ruin a garden located like the best place, just the wind and the sun, and not short on water supplies. Such land although not affected by heavy rain, for example, only a drizzle then it is enough to make it a fertile growing media. If these elements are met, then of course the resulting fruit will be very satisfactory, the leaves are dense and shady and cool air. The owner will always reap the results without worrying.
But if they are hit by drought or disaster struck and burned.
أيود أحدكم أن تكون له جنة من نخيل وأعناب تجري من تحتها الأنهار له فيها من كل الثمرات وأصابه الكبر وله ذرية ضعفاء فأصابها إعصار فيه نار فاحترقت كذلك يبين الله لكم الآيات لعلكم تتفكرون
Is there one among you who would like to have a garden of dates and grapes that flowed beneath rivers; she had in the garden all sorts of fruits, then came the old age of the man he was to have children who are still small. Then the wind farm loud containing the fire and burned. Thus Allah explains His verses to you lest you think about it. [al-Baqarah / 2: 266]
Then it is a parable of people who do a practice and then he did something that damages and destroys what he has done, such as shirk, nifaq or other immoral acts that could wipe out the reward. How to lose!
From this parable, we can conclude that people who have no faith at all like people who do not have a garden at all.
Side of the equation between the charity and the garden is the quality of an area greatly affected by the adequacy of water, soil fertility and kindness place. So also with deeds. Deeds was strongly influenced revelation as nutritional liver. Then the perpetrator also has completed all the requirements of receipt of charity that produce satisfactory results.
And still a lot of perumpaman hosted by Allah Almighty in the Qur'an. Various parable can only be understood by people who have sense. When these parables are applied to a diperumpamakan, then everything will appear clear.
