Praise be to Allah, the Lord of Creations, and Peace and blessings be upon our prophet Muhammad, the faithful and the honest.
Oh, Allah, we know nothing but what You teach us. You are the All- Knower, the Wise. Oh Allah, teach us what is good for us, and benefit us from what You taught us, and increase our knowledge. Show us the righteous things as righteous and help us to do them, and show us the bad things as bad and help us to keep away from them.
O Allah our Lord, lead us out from the depths of darkness and illusion, unto the lights of erudition and knowledge, and from the muddy shallows of lusts unto the heavens of Your Vicinity.

There are more than 1.300 Ayat in the Noble Quran where the universe is mentioned. Have you ever asked yourself what the purpose of these Ayat in the Quran is? If we are not assigned to reflect, what is the purpose of these Ayat then? Is it acceptable to say that Allah says purposeless Ayat (Exalted be He above such a claim)? No, it is not.. Since we have these Ayat about the universe, this means that there is an act of worship that is called Tafakkur (reflection), and it is one of the most exalted acts of worship, simply because it puts you face to face with the Greatness of Allah the Almighty. Unfortunately, this act of worship is on hold in the Muslim world although Allah says:
﴾Verily! In the creation of the heavens and the earth, and in the alternation of night and day, there are indeed signs for men of understanding* Those who remember Allah (always, and in prayers) standing, sitting, and lying down on their sides, and think deeply about the creation of the heavens and the earth, (saying): "Our Lord! You have not created (all) this without purpose, glory to You! (Exalted be You above all that they associate with You as partners). Give us salvation from the torment of the Fire.﴿

[Aal-'Imran, 190-191]

Allah also says:
﴾Say: "Behold all that is in the heavens and the earth," but neither Ayat (proofs, evidences, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc.) nor warners benefit those who believe not.﴿

[Yunus, 101]

Allah says in another Ayah:
﴾And how many a sign in the heavens and the earth they pass by, while they are averse therefrom.﴿

[Yusuf, 105]

We recite so many Ayat about astrology, galaxies and our food, but we do not ponder over them:
﴾Then let man look at his food,﴿

[Abasa, 24]
This is a Divine Order, and every order in the Quran entails obligation. Allah says:
﴾So let man see from what he is created!* He is created from a water gushing forth﴿

[At-Tariq, 5-6]

There is an amazing phenomenon in the universe. This phenomenon is related to the characteristics of water. Water is like any other material that shrinks upon cooling and expands upon heating, but it has a unique quality that makes it different from all other materials. When the temperature drops lower than +4 degrees centigrade, water begins to expand instead of shrinking, and so its density decreases which makes it float on the surface upon freezing. (The density of water increases as the temperature decreases, but only until approximately 4 degrees Celsius, where density starts to decrease at any point lower than that. When water freezes, turning into ice, it has a density lower than liquid water, which allows it to float). Due to this quality we exit. Without it you would not be able to read this book, and there would not be any living soul on the earth, how is that? Without this quality in water, there would not be any life on earth. If water shrank upon freezing, and its density increased, it would sink in the deep sea water which would cause the freezing of all oceans, and no evaporation would take place, no rain would fall down, and thus plants, animals and human race would die, and life would be over. Who has given this quality to water? Allah the Almighty has.
