Here a corner of the immense system of existense, which is founded upon wisdom, knowledge, justice and right; has been precisely calculated and measured, and proportionally adjusted, and rightly controlled. All the phenomena in the universe are clear signs and expressive hints of God, and also the reasons to prove his Infinite Grace and Mercy.

Without mountains there shall be no safety for the creatures upon the earth.
Think of the spouses as the male and female, that console and comfort each other in their loving arms.

Remarkable is the strange system and cycle of rain; through which the sea water is vapourized, then raised up, changed again to rain drop, fall in shower, creating steams, springs, and rivers and returning at least to the sea; with the result of greaion of grains, plants and gardens full of fruit trees. Each stage of the whole cycle is a miracle, and a clear sign of God; that pronounces His Oneness, Glory and Mercy. The light,darkness, heat, water, soil and vegetation that are referred to in the above verses are all proofs of the infinite power and wisdom of the All-knowing God.
