Water, the Priceless Gift!
Why is it that we are so drawn to water? It is evidently a universal yearning, affecting not just those born into harsh desert environments. Even in other countries where rain is abundant, they also included a ‘water-feature’ in their back garden (for those who can afford). There is a beauty and mystery that draws us towards water in a garden, in whatever form it may take, whether it be a fountain, a large still pool, a cascade or a narrow rill, I don’t know why, maybe it is a human nature to love water. No wonder, the Paradise was always described as a beautiful garden with water flowing ‘underneath’ (Jannah tajri min tahtiha al-anhar) The sensuous pleasure of dipping my own fingers in a fountain and feeling the cooling atmosphere engendered by it is one of the best thing that I love about water. Thanks Allah for this precious gift, without it, life on earth could not exist. We all knew the reason why.
