Fight Your Weakness
Did you know that the shark can detect a drop of blood from 3miles away? An elephant can smell water from 3 miles away? A cheetah can go from 0-60 miles in 3seconds? A bald eagle's eyesight is 4x the perfect eyesight of the human? Did you think there is no Creator considering you cannot explain all the above? That you cannot explain how you were created from a drop of fluid? That you cannot explain where you were before you were that drop of fluid? All the signs around you are evidence that there is a Creator. And they go further to emphasize that there is a Designer. So what existed before us? Before the Universe? Before even Time? These questions and the responses are here in this talk of Sheikh Omar. Take a wee bit of time off today and give him a listen.
