For those who are not familiar with immunity system, let me first introduce to you, our
Sometimes, you'll feel annoyed when a stranger who is sitting besides you repeatedly sneezes and coughs right? Easily said, it is Allah SWT who planned this ejecting system! Sneeze and cough is just another way to discharge the pathogens. So, say Alhamdulillah for every sneeze that you had. The flushing action of tears, saliva, and urine also force out pathogens, as does the sloughing off of skin.
Apart from these mechanical barrier, you have chemical barrier as first line defense. You have antimicrobial peptides from skin and respiratory system, enzymes from saliva, tears and breast milk, vaginal secretion, defensins and zinc in semen and gastric acid and proteases in stomach. All these act as barrier to defend your body from infection. This is just another unnoticed bounty that Allah accomodates us with.
Even the so-called pathogens successfully encountered both barrier, no worry yet! Allah once again prepared us with innate and adaptive barrier. We have humoral and chemical barrier, inflammation, complement system, cellular barriers, lymphocytes, killer T-cells, helper T-cells, T-cells receptor, B lymphocytes, antibodies and immunological memory! For more complex idea of immunity system, please ask Mr.Google. Allah said in Surah Ibrahim;
And He gave you from all you asked of Him. And if you should count the favor of Allah, you could not enumerate them. Indeed, mankind is [generally] most unjust and ungrateful. (34)
I've been using lots of space for immunity system right? As I said earlier, we can't deny the fact that learning biology leads us more than a single step towards our Creator. My ordinary question is, have we realised about all these things? Peeps, I'm not going to listen to your answer! Just talk to your heart. Allah SWT loves us. He equipped us with everything to protect us against the tiniest pathogens and microorganisms. But, to what extent that we help ourselves to fight against the Hawa and Nafs?
Brothers and sisters! I will let you to take your time and think deeply about this matter. InsyaAllah, I'll write on how Hawa and Nafs infect us in next post with hope, at that time, we are ready for transformation!
