Shaykh Nazhim Adil al-Haqqani (q.s.): Atoms are Alive
بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ
Shaykh Muhammad Nazhim Adil al-Haqqani (q.s.) said, “The electrons revolve around the nuclei at an enormous velocity. Albert Einstein once declared, ‘I have come to understand so much, but what I have never been able to fathom is what power gives the electrons the energy to orbit nuclei at such a speed.’ From where does such power come to them?
We believe, and furthermore, have been granted certainty in our belief, that everything in existence has life, is living. For the sake of everyday reckoning we classify certain things, such as rocks, as inanimate objects, and recognise life only in plants, animals and human beings. But we believe that beyond these outward distinctions, everything has life. Therefore, atoms, and their electrons that in turn orbit the nuclei with such speed, are, in reality, alive. They are alive with the Divine Love their Lord has Granted them. That is what makes them spin at the speed of light. It is for those who have access to a realm of knowledge beyond science to say with certainty, that it is Allah Almighty, the Lord of the Universe, Who through His Holy Name, al-Wadud, the All-Loving, Who Gives His Divine Love to everything in the universe. Those electrons, drunken with Divine Love, spin at such velocity around the nuclei. That is how the influence of Divine Love is Manifested by them.”
