Signs in Technology

The modern buildings we live in, the luxurious cars we drive, the computers, the televisions, and all the other technology along these lines: these are all blessings created by God's will.

Technology is the result of mankind putting together certain elements found on Earth for specific purposes. If we look at technological products around us, we see that they are all composed of metals like iron, copper, zinc, and aluminum, or petroleum by-products like plastic. If these elements, in particular metals, did not exist on Earth, and if people were not able to use these elements, it would not be possible to develop any of these technological devices.

All the technology that we are used to in our daily life, and which makes our lives so much easier, has been created by God's will. Technology is a blessing which people should think about and for which should thank our Lord.

It is He Who created all the species and gave you ships and livestock for you to ride. (Qur'an, 43:12)

Don't you see that ships sail on the sea by God's blessing so that He can show you something of His signs?... (Qur'an, 31:31)

... And you see the ships cleaving through it so that you can seek His bounty, and so that hopefully you will show thanks. (Qur'an, 16:14)

We made everything on the Earth adornment for it so that We could test them to see whose actions are the best. We will certainly make everything on it a barren wasteland. (Qur'an, 18:7-8)

We have honored the sons of Adam and conveyed them on land and sea... (Qur'an, 17:70)

Don't you see that God has made everything on the Earth subservient to you and the ships running upon the sea by His command?... (Qur'an, 22:65)
