Have you ever thought of a life without eyes? The vision and eye are so important that God has mentioned in His book. He has said in Holy Quran: “Have We not made for him/her a pair of eyes?” (90:8)
And the second question: what is the proper use of the eye? What are the do’s and don’ts of looking?
It is nice to give an example for recommended looking in Islam.
The Qur’an invites man to look to is to consider what he eats. Holy Quran has said: “Then let man look at his food, (and how We provide it)” (80:24)
Due to if we do not eat we will die soon, the food can be considered closest thing to man that exists outside our body. Looking at the various foods causes to realize to God’s power especially those derived from plants and trees.
All are fed with the same soil and water but the fruits are different. Some are sweet like cherry and some are sour like barberry. Some are juicy like melon and some are not like almonds. Some are orange like Carrots and some are yellow like banana. Some fruits are with high pH level like tangerine and some are with low pH level like squash and etc.
However, looking wisely has a very important role in enhancing human cognition. Let’s use the eyes properly and thank God.
