In the name of God, most Gracious, most Compassionate

In the name of God, most Gracious, most Compassionate
Al-Quran (30:30)

So direct your face toward the religion, inclining to truth. [Adhere to] the fitrah of Allah upon which He has created [all] people. No change should there be in the creation of Allah. That is the correct religion, but most of the people do not know.

فَأَقِمْ وَجْهَكَ لِلدِّينِ حَنِيفًا فِطْرَةَ اللَّهِ الَّتِي فَطَرَ النَّاسَ عَلَيْهَا لَا تَبْدِيلَ لِخَلْقِ اللَّهِ ذَلِكَ الدِّينُ الْقَيِّمُ وَلَكِنَّ أَكْثَرَ النَّاسِ لَا يَعْلَمُونَ
[Al-Imran 3:8] "[Who say], "Our Lord, let not our hearts deviate after You have guided us and grant us from Yourself mercy. Indeed, You are the Bestower."

"...And made your sleep a means for rest...? "

[25:47] "And it is He Who makes the night a covering for you, and the sleep (as) repose, and makes the day Nushur (i.e. getting up and going about here and there for daily work, etc. after one's sleep at night or like resurrection after one's death)."

[78:6-9] "Have We not made the earth a resting place?And the mountains as stakes?And We have created you in pairs (male and female, tall and short, good and bad, etc.).And made your sleep [a means for] rest  "

The man in the video says: "sleep is a mystery we don't know why we sleep or why we need sleep"

This led me to ponder on the ayaah of the Qur'an. Subhana'Allah Indeed everything in this world is a sign of our Creator. I am in awe all the time. We can't even order our bodies not to sleep yet we are so arrogant to recognize that we aught to worship our creator whom created us to need sleep. They (the scientist) can't even figure out something so simple of our daily life and its beyond me how it does not even retrieve them to feel insignificant and humble themselves to their creator. It also led me to ponder how sleeping is subscribed to what is helpless and then reminded me of numerous ayaah of the Qur'an in which Allah (subhanahu wa ta' ala) says he is free of need and [2:255] "...Neither slumber, nor sleep overtake Him..." Something those whom with little minds fail to reflect upon and regardless out of arrogance (don't even want to believe that maybe just maybe they are mistaken on whom they worship) subscribe partners to Allah (swt). 

*subhana'Allahla wa laa hawla wa la quwwata illa billah (Glorified is Allah, there is no power and no might except by Allah) :)
