Our Lord! You truly know all that we may hide in our hearts as well as all that we bring into the open, for nothing whatsoever, be it on earth or in heaven, remains hidden from Allah. {Quran, 14:38}


Mercy in Hearing

Allah has created everything with such wisdom, subhanAllah. So it should be no wonder that our ears are amazing. Allah made it with His detail, of the smallest bones in our bodies. Get this, those smallest bones are actually full size, adult size at birth! The cochlea, (you know the swirly thing in there that looks sort of like a snail in those anatomy books) is only the size of a pea. Something so small, and things even smaller, like the hair cells in our ears can totally alter what we hear, how we perceive sound, and whether we hear anything or not in the first place. Scientists and researchers haven't exactly figured out why. People often think of those that are deaf are those that have that nasal like voices, and who only use sign language. SubhanAllah, this is far from the truth! Many children and adults who can't hear..really can with something more to offer than with a hearing aid in most cases, a cochlear implant. This is a new miracle of technology that Allah has bestowed on us. For that reason alone my almost 4 1/2 year old daughter is bilingual in arabic and english, and has never used sign language. Praise Allah, yes, she is deaf..a mercy in disguise. So she works a little bit harder than everyone else in some areas, big deal. None of us have everything, and all of us have something. So praise Allah for testing us only in ways that we can pass, and may we all pass our biggest obstacles in life...

What a wonderful miracle! May Allah keep her, and all your children, healthy and happy. I have a feeling she will grow up to be a very special person and go on to do some great things in her life InshaAllah.
